Overview

About the property

2 Bedrooms 2 Baths & 2nd H&C Outdoor Shower, Private Beach, Quiet & Relaxing

A vacation spot like this comes along once in a Blue Moon! Accessed by water taxi from Marsh Harbour, Blue Moon Cottage was the first schoolhouse built in White Sound on Elbow Cay. It has been renovated into a bright two Bedroom, Bahamian beach cottage with GENERATOR. Decorated in bright island fashion Blue Moon Cottage is sure to please!

The Master bedroom has a king-size bed connecting to an en suite full bathroom. It has a private door leading to an east facing deck and an upper flying deck with Atlantic Ocean sunrise views.

The guest room has a queen bed with its own full bathroom and its own private door to the upper and lower East deck.

Across the golf cart path is your own private beach access to the Atlantic Ocean. Surf, swim, collect shells and walk on a virtually deserted beach with beautiful blue water and great surf waves.

You will find the kitchen well equipped along with a gas grill outside overlooking the Abaco sea.. and an outside dining area in the breezeway has a fun mural painted on the wall.

Additionally, we also have a wonderful outdoor shower with hot and cold water with a view of the Abaco Sea. Why shower inside when you can get 'native' with hot and cold water shower outside... with a view!

Watch the sun rise over the Atlantic Ocean and set over the Abaco Sea from the Flying Deck. Enjoy 360 views and wonderful breeze. The best place around for a morning cup of coffee or evening cocktail!

A shallow water boat dock is available a few yards away with reservation.

There are lots of games, books and music to keep yourself busy if you find yourself indoors as well as Satellite TV and Wifi.

When you visit Hope Town and Blue Moon Cottage, you will immediately relax. From the oversized sliding glass doors in the living area, you can view the beautiful Abaco Sea and feel the fresh breeze from the Atlantic Ocean from our large decks.

Relax in hammocks and on the comfortable deck furniture. There is no hustle and bustle. No crazy schedules.

Rent a golf cart or boat to explore the island and waters or just hang out at your home away from home!

Blue Moon Cottage is across the golf cart path from the Abaco Inn, where you will find a wonderful restaurant & pool - and the locals favorite bar. Head down the cart path a bit further south and you will find Sea Spray Marina with docks and an outside restaurant & bar. Sea Spray Marina open for breakfast, lunch, and dinner. Also it is a wonderful place to just hang out after a big day at the beach or out on the water.

The new Firefly resort is just a short golf cart ride away as well. A great place to hang out and enjoy the pool and bar and watch a sunset or two.

About Shae Singer

After sailing thru the Bahamian Islands for many years I finally decide to throw out the anchor and put down roots with a cottage. Hope Town has all the amenities one could desire while still retaining is small (only 6 miles long) island feel.

Shae Singer purchased this cottage in 2000

Why Shae Singer chose Elbow Cay

With views of the Abaco Sea and The Atlantic ocean only a few fee away we are on on the narrowest part o the island.. sea breeze all the time and views that are amazing. Walk to the Abaco Inn or Sea Spray for a drink, snack or dinner (makes it easy if you do not want to cook). Across the small golf cart path is our winding path to our private beach on the Atlantic Ocean. Come join and enjoy Blue Moon Cottage as much as we do!

We also include a generator to ensure you have an amazing stay, regardless of the power grid! This is a very rare and coveited feature! Also weekly maid service is included for a 7 day stay.

What makes this cottage unique

Views! Views! Views! Location! Location! Location!

Blue Moon Cottage has it all while retaining a laid back Bahamian Funk and fun feel! All the comforts of home in your third world paradise!!

Absolutely perfect!

  • 5 of 5

Everything about Blue Moon Cottage is wonderful. We spent each morning on the tower and each evening in the deck. Perfectly appointed, we never found ourselves in need of anything whether it be cooking utensils or a book/dvd for relaxing. Daily visits from the cats and dogs made it that much more memorable. Thank you for sharing your home!

PERFECT! MUCH BETTER THEN I HAD EXPECTED

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I went on a last minute trip here in 2015 and enjoyed every second of it. The house was wonderful! I have stayed in a lot of places in the Caribbean and this was our favorite vacation. I have honestly thought about this house and our vacation every single day since we left and I am counting down the days to go back. The location was PERFECT. The house was CLEAN and we could not have been happier.

Perfect location for total relaxation

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I spent a totally relaxing week at Blue Moon Cottage. We have previously stayed in town but loved being on the South End at Blue Moon. Close to Abaco Inn and SeaSpray which we visited at least once daily for dinner (mostly take out) or cocktails. We spent many nights listening to music on the covered porch just soaking in the sights and sounds as the sun went down and loving every minute. Although there are houses close by you still have the feel of being in your own little world. If you can't relax here - You can't relax anywhere. We had frequent visits from a hummingbird, resident cat Phantom as well as some Island dogs coming to check out what we were having for dinner. Having the private dock close by was key to our trip as we had rented a boat from Island Marine and didn't have to deal with worrying about a spot at a public dock.

Exceeded Lofty Expectations

  • 5 of 5

Just returned from an 8 day stay at Blue Moon with my wife and two kids (ages 8 and 10). We absolutely loved our stay on Elbow Cay. The cottage was set up perfectly for our family and we were very comfortable. Outdoor shower was the way to go, and the covered porch with sea of Abaco views was a nice respite from the sun in the afternoons. The beach across the street was amazing. Great tide pooling and snorkeling when the waves are down. Very quiet! We also used the dock every day for pick up/drop off on our friends' boat they rented in Marsh Harbor. White Sound harbor was a very convenient place to head out on our daily boat excursions. We snorkeled/shelled at Tahiti Beach, Johnny's Cay, Tilloo Cay; lunched and lounged in Hope Town, Great Guana Cay, Lubbers Cay; snorkeled from the boat at a few reefs. We also had a golf cart that was good for evening rides around the island. We were surprised at how quiet and laid back the Abacos is. Just what we were looking for. We will be back!
