About the property

Cottage, 2 Bedrooms, 2 Baths, (Sleeps 4)

Fish Tales cottage is part of Tomato Paste Rentals on Elbow Cay in the Abacos of the Bahamas. We are located between Hope Town Harbour to the north and White Sound to the south on the sea side of the island in a quiet, secluded cove called Fry's Mangrove.

Our cottage is designed after the old Bahamian settler's cottages that make Hope Town Settlement so unique - Fish Tales is painted in shades of pink and purple ... offering the feel of old Hope Town with modern day conveniences. We recommend our guests rent a boat and/or a golf cart to fully enjoy the area and ease of getting around. We recommend you visit Great Harbour Boat Restoration - a wooden boat restoration shop on property that is actively repairing and restoring Bahamian-built wooden boats which are available for day charters as well.

Fish Tales is maintained and operated by onsite owners.

Tomato Paste is very unique with something of interest going on everyday.

COME STAY WITH US or just come by and see what a special spot Tomato Paste is ... YOU TOO WILL FALL IN LOVE WITH IT!

See you at Tomato Paste!

If you need space for additional guests - Tomato Paste is also the site of 2 additional rental cottages (see our website or contact us for more information).

About Kent LeBoutillier

Tomato Paste is the combined dream of both Boot and Kent LeBoutillier.......

Boot who is an ex-ski instructor turned custom contractor and his wife, Kent who is a pastry chef and artist. Boot has been traveling to Hope Town since the early 1960's and when he came down to do a remodel on his parent's family vacation home in 1998, he discovered this little piece of paradise we now call Tomato Paste.

Moving from Aspen, Colorado's mountains to the sea shores of the Bahamas has been a great experience. We have designed and constructed all that is Tomato Paste today. We have tried to keep what mother nature gave us as is and have put back added beauty to compliment our surroundings while keeping the flavor of Hope Town and the Bahamas in all that we do.

Kent LeBoutillier purchased this cottage in 2005

Why Kent LeBoutillier chose Hope Town

Why stay at Tomato Paste Cottages? I guess you could ask the same thing as why live in the country vs the city? It is quiet, relaxing, convenient to town without being in town, in nature , secluded without being too far from everything you want or need, able to keep a boat at a dock in front of your house, 10 minutes from the fishing grounds, swimming and snorkeling right off the dock or around the corner. We are not necessarily the easiest place to stay in Hope Town, but then, not everyone wants what we offer....


Car: not necessary

Being 5 minutes from Hope Town Settlement, you can really fall into island time by watching our sea turtles in the cove, a beautiful sunset, tour our lighthouse-the Elbow Reef Lighthouse, the ONLY lighthouse in the world that is hand lit and wound nightly!! As well as, enjoying all that the town and the area has to offer.... you will wake up in the morning with a long list of things to do that day and at the end the day have them only half done!
