Guestbook comments from the manager

We had a great stay here in Green Shutters! This was our 3rd time here in Hope Town and Green Shutters was by far our favourite place to stay. We can't wait to come back next years. We loved the beach access and the roof's view!

Perfect vacation!

  • 5 of 5

We booked Green Shutters for our family holiday vacation for our wedding and feel we had the ideal home and location to meet all of our needs. The layout in Green Shutters can facilitate cozy as well as entertaining, whatever the flavour happens to be. The central location in Hope Town made it a perfect meeting place for our group. The ocean beach just over the hill in front of Green Shutters became our location for our wedding, too! Add in the convenience of Sip-Sip next door and it couldn't be beat! The home was inviting, relaxing and chalk full of all amenities. Response time for any requests was very prompt and complete. I would recommend Green Shutters for the perfect family vacation!

Cozy Cottage Located in the Heart of Hopetown

  • 5 of 5

We had the best vacation ever, staying at Green Shutters! It was perfect of our family of four. Very clean and comfortable. The furnishings and linens were all top-notch and the bathroom was recently upgraded. The kitchen was fully stocked and the open design made it fun to cook dinner and spend the evening together. We especially enjoyed watching the sunset every evening from the rooftop deck!

It is centrally located, so it's a short walk to restaurants and shops, as well as the grocery store, bakery and public dock. It's directly across from a memorial garden and the beach, so there's always a cool breeze on the porch -- the perfect place to relax in the afternoon after a day on the water or at the beach.

We look forward to returning again soon!

Perfect Island Cottage

  • 5 of 5

We recently stayed at Green Shutters for a week and had such a blast! It’s such a charming island house that has been re-done to the Nine’s. When we arrived everything was spotless and beautiful. This cottage is fully equipped with beach and bath towels as well as anything you could possibly need in the kitchen to cook your own Bahamian meals. The house is equipped with Wi-Fi, a phone for calls to the States and has air conditioning throughout. Green Shutters is situated in the most ideal part of town for new comers to the island. Just down the street from Harbour’s Edge where you can get a fantastic fish burger and just a short walk to Capt'n Jacks, groceries, shops and liquor store. We docked our boat at the sailing club dock which offers public docking during the day and the Upper Public dock overnight. We had beach access right across the street which you can also see from the most incredible roof top deck, perfect for star gazing and watching the sunrise or set. This place is a gold mine and working with the owner, Patrick, and Elbow Cay Properties was extremely easy. If you are looking for a true local Bahamian retreat with a flare of elegance I highly recommend discovering Green Shutters!!

Thanks again for having us!
