Serenity is located on a peninsula in the White Sound at 10 minutes drive from Hope Town. The area is peacefull and very quiet surounded by stunning ocean view. Abaco Inn is a 3-5 minutes golf cart drive as well as Sea Spray Marina and FireFly resort. The 3 places offer delicious meals.

 

Owner info

Year Purchased: 2013

About the owner: We are European and we discovered the Bahamas by boat. The first time was July 2008 and we cruised all around the Bahamas three times a year till 2012. We love the Bahamas which offers such clear water and great temperature. We have been amazed by all the features that Elbow cay and Hope Town could offer. Nice restaurants, beautiful beaches, activities such as scuba diving, fishing guides and so on. The village and its great colorful houses without forgetting its famous lighthouse convinced us to settle down here in 2013.

Why the Owner Chose Elbow Cay, Bahamas:
We fall in love with Serenity which sits on a private peninsula at 10 minutes drive by golf cart from Hope Town, in the White Sound! No neighbors except in the back where the road reaches the house, but only sea and stunning view all around the house with spectacular sunraises and sunsets. The house is luxuriously furnished with a superb modern open kitchen overlooking two large lounges. All details of the layout of the kitchen convinces the lady of the most demanding home. All the details are there, from microwave to dishwasher without forgetting a refined dishes and table service available to guests. Furniture has been chosen with taste and refined and the house has its personalized decoration. As soon as you step in Serenity, you feel home! Serenity is constantly renovated, extremely well maintained and offers anyone its place. Nice huge dock which can welcome boats together with its opened gazebo and swimming dock. An external closed gazebo is at disposal for those like privacy to read and so on. We hope you will be as convinced as us, the first time we saw Serenity! The spell of Serenity is something that you won’t find anywhere else. Serenity is beautiful all day long.Lush gardens and winding walks. The most romantic spot on the island.

The Unique Benefits at this Estate:
Bone fishing area. Peacefull. Complete privacy as Serenity is on a peninsula. Most amazing sunsets. Nice restaurants closed to it. Very protected area. Come over and see that we have told you only the truth :-) !
