Property description

Yellow Bird Cottage is located in the quaint little fishing village of Hope Town, Abaco. Our cottage is centrally located in the settlement and and looks out over the Hopetown harbour and the lighthouse. It is steps away from the white sand beach and turquoise waters of the Atlantic Ocean. Yellow Bird is a perfect getaway for relaxing on the beach, reading a good book, scuba diving or snorkling in the crystal clear waters and creating a magical holiday. There are wonderful restaurants to walk to and restaurants on the south end of the island provide transportation. Yellow Bird is in a convenient central location for you to begin to explore lovely Elbow Cay.

Yellow Bird Cottage has a large deck where you can enjoy the warm sunshine during the day and gaze at the dazzling stars at night. You can have cook outs in the evening while relaxing in the screened in porch in our comfortable seating and dining area. Inside this cozy cottage are all the comforts of home. The kitchen is fully equipped for you to cook up your catch of the day or bake a fresh coconut pie. You will enjoy entertaining your friends and family at the open sit down bar which divides the comfortable living area and the kitchen and is a perfect spot for breakfast or casual meals. Upstairs, there are two bedrooms, one with a comfortable king sized bed which leads into the second bedroom, which has three twin beds and a crib. You will fall asleep to the sounds of waves crashing on the beach, and awaken to the feel of the soft ocean breezes.

The beach is just steps is glorious.... soft white sand and turquoise water as far as you can see. Enjoy a walk on warm sand and take a dip in the ocean. There are snorkeling areas to explore right off the beach. Build a sand castle, dig for shells and play in the waves as they break on the shore.

There are no cars allowed in Hope Town, although there are vehicles which people use for their businesses, but you can walk to the beach, shops, restaurants, basketball court, library and playground. Rent a bicycle or golf cart to explore the rest of our eight mile island or rent a boat to adventure out to the other unique cays in the Abacos. Scuba diving, snorkelling and fishing charters are a wonderful way to spend a day. In the evening you can stroll down the quiet streets to one of the local restaurants for a special cocktail and dinner on the harbour underneath the stars.
