About the property

Honeymoon Waterfront Cottage 1 bed 1 bath with kitchen

Watercolours Cottages are located on Lubbers Quaters Cay. A beautiful island in the Abacos chain which lies protected from the ocean swells in the Abaco Sound. Located between Marsh Harbor and Elbow Cay, approximately 2 miles south of Hopetown.

The island offers secluded beaches, exploring, and peace and quiet. Watercolours, with its waterfront location and private dock lies on the southern end of the island catching the trade winds. The location is ideal for the ecologically minded, as the cottages sit nestled in tropical fruit trees and plants that the guests and the hummingbirds enjoy! There is a deck for sun and a tiki bar right on the water for your enjoyment.

Our Pineapple Cottage nestled in tropical vegetation overlooking the Sea of Abaco is a 1 bedroom suitable for 2 guests. It has a fully equipped kitchen, ice maker, gas BBQ grills, sirius satellite radio, wifi internet, and large screened porch with beautiful views of the Sea of Abaco and outlying islands. Both Cottages also equipped with well maintained back up generator. For groups of more than two people both cottages can be rented to accommodate up to six people. Contact owner for rates on the 2 bedroom cottage.

I stayed here with my family and we had the adventure of a lifetime. I highly recommend it for the family that wants to fish, search for giant conch shells, underwater snorkel in the national underwater reef, and get away from the tourists. My kids still talk about the great time we had and we'll never forget it!

Abaco is a very unique location with many Islands in close proximity bordering a shallow protected sea. It's an amazing place if you love topical island vibes, boat rides, unexplored beaches, and tiki bar libations. It's common practice for visitors to rent small boats as part of their accommodations while in Abaco. With a rental boat you are free to explore the many other islands, reefs, beaches, bars, and restaurants, close to Lubbers Quarters. On Lubbers there is a beautiful beach on the west side and Cracker P's bar and restaurant on the east side. Just across the way is Elbow Cay's popular boating destination Tahiti Beach. Further north on Elbow cay you will find the charming Hope Town over looked by the Historic Elbow Reef lighthouse a popular tourist destination! 101 steps to the top, you can climb this piece of history, Elbow Reef Light house is the last lighthouse in the world to operate by hand crank and kerosene. Hope Town itself is a beautiful little town of colorful colonial style houses. There are several good eateries and bars in the Harbour and a walk through down to the beautiful Atlantic ocean beach is always pleasant. And that's just the closest island!! Little Harbour, Marsh Harbour, Man-O-War and Guana all offer great day time destinations for beach combing, diving, fishing and exploring. We have been living and operating a business in Abaco since 2001 and we are always happy to give guests help, tips and suggestions of things to do, how to get from A to B. We live on Lubbers and are always close by and available to guests should any problems arise. Feel Free to contact us with any question you may have about our rentals or Abaco in general. Thanks for looking, hope to see you in ABACO!
