Property description


Green Bananas is a charming Victorian beach front cottage that accommodates one or two couples or a family of up to five. It is located on the southeast side of Lubbers Quarters, a moderately inhabited island in Abaco, Bahamas.

Lubbers Quarters, a relatively undiscovered beauty is a private island tucked between Great Abaco, Elbow and Tilloo Cayes (pronounced 'keys') It Abounds with historic lore from Blackbeard's buried treasure to tales of gnome-like 'Yahoos' who comb the beach looking for green bananas. (Ask any island child.) There are several trails on Lubbers, as well as caves, wild orchids, hummingbirds, small beaches and interesting people.

Lubbers, in the Bay of Abaco, is surrounded by quaint islands, likened to a pastel version of Martha's Vineyard. Nearby you will find fishing and boat building villages, the famous Hope Town candystriped lighthouse, artist colonies and the world renowned Sandy Cay Seapark.

Green Bananas offers

-Living room with built in day bed, dining area and full kitchen -- microwave, toaster, blender, coffee pot.

-Master bedroom with French doors opening onto front porch, walk in closet, queen bed

-Large loft bedroom, walk in closet, two double beds, lounger.

-Private outside hot water shower and morning sink as well as full inside bathroom (tub/shower).

-Both 110 and solar powered 12 volt electric.

-Radio, cassette and cd player in the living area.

-The beds will be made up with fresh linens. The cottage has plenty of blankets, comforters, pillows and a set of bath towels per guest.

-There is a charcoal grill. Usually there is charcoal left from previous renters, the same with spices, tea, flour, sugar, paper towels and tp.

There are several trails on Lubbers, as well as caves, wild orchids, hummingbirds, small beaches and interesting people. A short boat ride away is Cracker P’s, a chef owned and operated beach bar/restaurant, also loved by locals. There is a marked trail that will also take you to Cracker P’s. It’s fun and somewhat adventurous. Try it the first time in daylight and bring a flashlight and plenty of batteries for the trip home. Fifteen minute walk, max.

Owner info

Year Purchased: 2004

About the owner: I am a Bahamian and live on the mainland of Abaco... Green Bananas is my beach cottage... Where my kids and I spend holidays and weekends.. and now would like to share with you..

Why the Owner Chose Hope Town, The Bahamas:
Green Bananas is the most unique cottage in the Abacos. Its rustic yet has the finest comforts.. It is directly on the beach but also has a private dock.. You will live on the front porch.. The outside shower is private and delicious... The running lane of boats is just off of the dock so you can sit all day and seagaze. Lay in bed and watch the gorgeous sunrises. Go fishing, crawfishing, conching, cruising, and then come home to Green Bananas and grill your Catch - on the dock...

The Unique Benefits at this Cottage:
Most island homes are either on the beach or have a dock... But not both... Green Bananas is the incredible gem... gorgeous white sand beach... long, simple dock...
