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.

Owner info

Year Purchased: 2000

About the owner: 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.

Why the Owner Chose Hope Town, Elbow Cay, Bahamas:
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.

The Unique Benefits at this Cottage:
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!!
