About Susan Hebert

Elbow Cay quickly became my husband's favorite vacation spot. We decided to build a home our whole family could enjoy and rent for others to enjoy. We live in Ocala, Florida and try to come to Elbow Cay whenever the house is not being rented. Randy and I both graduated from Virginia Tech - thus the house name Hokie Hy.

What makes this house unique

The location says it all! Spectacular ocean view with ocean breeze and deck with pool over looking the beach. Close to many beaches and restaurants , food store and public dock.

Nice House, a lot of room. Kind of cooler when we we were there, would have been nice if pool was heated. Chad was helpful, met us at the dock and helped get our bags to the house. Flew out of the Atlanta Airport on Delta, the plane was over weight, took off bags. Six of our bags didn't arrive in Marsh Harbor. Delta said they would be on the plane the next day and would be brought over on the Ferry, next day came, no bags. Called Delta at Marsh Harbor, they only seem to answer when they want. Had to call a USA # more than once. Because not all of of bags made it on the next day, they kept the ones that arrived and would bring them all together. One of the bags was my 7 month old grandsons with his diaper, extra clothes etc, we went the 2 day to the airport and retrieved all the bags. Note to self, take a large carry on with items you might need for a couple of days. I don't think it is unusual for the bags not to make it. The Ferry has a service will buy groceries that you can pick up at the dock, well worth the extra $. Ate out most nights, Hope Town Marina was the best place for a group of 10 adults and 5 children, the kids played in the sand next to the restaurant. You can call them and they will come over and pick you up for free if you eat at their establishment. While you are over there you can check out the Light House. The Sweet Shop is close to the house, killer coconut pound cake, my grand kids liked the ice cream. Tahiti Beach fun for all, kids played and adults were entertained with the floating bar. Great location and Susan the owner wonderful to work with. The people of Elbow Cay were friendly and helpful. Looking forward to returning.

Beautiful place!

  • 5 of 5

What a great house! We went as 6 couples, so housing accommodations were somewhat limited. Came across Hokie Hy and was very pleased with our decision.

Homeowner was very responsive in the reservation process. We met the housekeeper at the dock. He had helped us arrange the golf carts to be delivered as well so we could get to the house easily upon arrival.

Dishwasher was having issues, but they were aware. The generator is still needing to be connected to an auto-on switch, but it was never a real inconvenience. In time, I expect these couple minor issues will be resolved.

I highly recommend staying here. Very well appointed. Beautiful view. Enjoy the pool every afternoon once you've spent your day hopping around Abaco!

Hokie Hy home on Elbow Cay

  • 4 of 5

Hokie Hy is a great home and our 2 families and we had plenty of room! The pool is clean and the rest of the house is too! We kept a boat down the street for easy access around the islands. The weather wasn't so great for the week, but we managed to make the best of the week. Thanks !!

Hokie Hy was Awesome!

  • 5 of 5

We had three couples, it was very nice having so many en suite bathrooms. We had way too much room for the 6 of us. The house was clean, updated, well equipped and roomy. The views from every room were great. The location of the house on the island is perfect, never far from town, Tahiti beach, Abaco Inn, Sea Spray or On da Beach. We look forward to returning again!
