About the Property

Villa, 3 Bedrooms + Convertible bed(s), 3 Baths, (Sleeps 8-10)

Mermaids Ridge is a large, well apportioned, light and airy villa, ideally located on the exclusive North End of Elbow Cay. The villa's elevated location affords ever changing panoramic 360 degree views of Elbow Cay from the beautiful turquoise Sea of Abaco, sweeping across Man of War Cay to the grandiour of the Atlantic Ocean.

Situated in its own tropical garden on a quiet sandy lane, the only worry you will have is which beach to choose for that early morning dip. The beach on the Abaco Sea is ideally suited for children with its gently sloping icing sugar sands leading into the protected turquoise waters of the Abaco Sea. At night you can gaze up at the spectacular stars.

There is a public dock on the North End for you to moor a boat, local boat hire is available with pick-ups at the North End dock and Golf cart rental is also available. You are within easy access to the 100 mile coral reef with really excellent snorkeling in shallow water. Diving trips and kit hire are available in Hope Town.

For complete relaxation with the option to be active when the mood takes you.

Manager info

Year Purchased: 2004

About: Howard and Lindy Parkinson, we are outgoing and adventurous. Having spent a year sailing down the Caribbean islands we did not find a better place to to be. We spend our time between the Bahamas and the UK renting out which ever house we are not using. I love to cook so I hope you will find my kitchen well provisioned with cooking utensils and pans etc.

Why Hope Town, Elbow Cay, Bahamas:
Why Elbow Cay, Bahamas: We came here for a 3 day break and left this amazing Island buying a house! We knew after the first 10 minutes in Mermaids ridge that the house was exactly right. We just love it here. People friendly, great and safe for kids. Beaches beautiful. Nice restaurants on the water. Boaters paradise. Super fishing, diving and snorkelling. Having looked for holiday property in France, Spain and Majorca we could not find anything better.

The Unique Benefits at this Villa:
Peace, privacy and tranquility of island living while near the quaint Hopetown which provides restaurants, shopping facilities and more. Views across of the ocean and the location is perfect for watching birds and butterflies.
