Overview

About the property

3 Bedrooms, 6 Sleeps, 2.5 baths

Green Shutters is a three bedroom cottage located in the center of town, close to restaurants, shops and dock access. This unique gem possesses an old world charm with all the modern amenities needed to enjoy a complete island vacation. The beach is just out your front door 60 feet away from the house. It is the best swimming beach on the island — private and calm with turquoise blue water. Swim, snorkel or just lie out and enjoy the island breeze.

Throughout the house are lots of windows, hardwood floors & beautiful artwork perfectly placed in each room. There is an open concept fully stocked kitchen and dining area with stainless steel appliances, granite countertops and a breakfast bar. The dining room provides enough seating for eight people plus offers a dry bar with lots of storage. The living-room has ample seating plus a cozy sitting area just off the dining room great to read, rest or just relax. The main house has two bedrooms one queen and one twin with a shared his & hers bathroom. Both bedrooms are bright and airy with lots of closet space. (The twin beds can be converted into a king size bed.)

Detached from the main house is a private queen size bungalow with ensuite bath… close enough to stay connected but far enough to retreat for privacy. There is a small fridge, microwave and plenty of closet space plus a full bathroom with shower.

Just to the side of the house are steps leading up to the widow’s walk where you can experience the best of both worlds with either a view of the ocean or the harbour! As you walk up the steps you’ll have a full on view of the lighthouse. After reaching the top there is seating to relax and take in the breathtaking views. Watch sailboats come and go, listen to the sound of waves or look out to the Sea of Abaco. Enjoy the colourful array of houses and water from above and get lost in your surroundings!

Hope Town is a unique place to visit with a memorable island charm...and so much to do! Enjoy boating, swimming, bicycling, fishing, surfing and kite boarding. Visit surrounding islands and explore protected reefs. Nightlife is fun in Hope Town with a variety of waterfront restaurants to choose from and great entertainment by local bands. Hope Town is perfect for families, couples and large groups that want to relax and get away from it all!

Getting to Hope Town is easy once you get to West Palm Beach, Ft. Lauderdale or Miami, Florida. There are also small charter services that fly out of Orlando, St. Augustine and Daytona Beach. The flight from Florida to Marsh Harbour is about an hour and then Hope Town is a short ferry ride from Marsh Harbour. When you arrive in Hope Town you will be met by our rental agency and they will help you to the house.

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!
