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.

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!

BREATHTAKING OCEANFRONT! WOW!

  • 5 of 5

Hokie Hy is more beautiful than the pictures show! Casual and elegant with the perfect house layout for multiple families! The house is decorated beautifully and is incredibly clean and welcoming! This is definitely one of the nicest, newest and largest homes on Elbow Cay! Thank you for such great hospitality!

Excellent Location, Excellent Accomodatations

  • 5 of 5

Just spent another wonderful week on Elbow Cay (4th one in 18 months) and our first (but not our last) at Hokie Hy. It is perfectly situated on Elbow with close proximity to On Da Beach, FireFly, Abaco Inn and other popular locations. The home is perfect to share with other families or multiple generations of the same family.

The house has a wonderful layout with incredible views of the ocean from every room. It is nicely decorated and well equipped from the kitchen, wifi, cable tvs, pool and beach towels. My only recommendation would be to leave somebody's name to help us get into all of the coconuts. Either way, it sure kept the kids (and a few of the adults) busy trying!

Best beach trip

  • 5 of 5

Just got back from a wonderful week on Elbow Cay and the Hokie Hy. We couldn't have asked for a better house for our group, it was just perfect in so many ways! Great location, clean, fresh, nicely decorated and a very functional layout. Kitchen was well equipped and we really appreciated the nice big beach towels provided. Also loved having a pool and beachfront. Abaco Inn, Fire Fly and Capt. Jacks are a must. Our teenagers loved bingo night at Capt. Jacks, Karaoke at Harbour Lodge and the DJ or live music at Sea Spray Marina and Harbours Edge. It's a charming island, the people are friendly and we always felt very safe. Judy was a tremendous help prior to our arrival, all of her resources were great! I will definitely be coming back and staying at the Hokie Hy again...lot's of fond memories!

Just spent a week at Hokie Hy, the best family vacation ever! The house is so well designed and the finishes are first class. We had 4 families and never felt jammed in, the house is in a perfect location, short cart ride to downtown or Sea spray marina best of the island. Fire Fly was an awesome spot for dinner, and the Lodge was great for family karaoke mon night! I think the kids enjoyed it as much as we did rocking YMCA. This is the ultimate family spot the views and the water are magical. Already looking to book again thx for the memories- Hokie Hy.

Perfect Beach Home!

  • 5 of 5

We stayed at Hokie Hy for 8 fantastic days! The layout is the perfect design for a beach house with room for 3 or 4 families and yet still provides privacy with 2 kings, 2 queens and 2 bunk rooms that sleeps 8. It's located very close to the grocery and liquor stores and a local takeout place (Mackie's) with some of the best food on the island (especially the cinnamon rolls). We also had Miss Brenda from Mackie's cater two dinners for us that were amazing! One was blackened grouper and the other lobster (Wow!) The ocean view provided unbelievable sunrises and full moons. It is just a short golf cart ride to Hope Town to the north and Sea Spray Marina and Abaco Inn to the south. We could not have enjoyed it more. Clearly the best place to stay on the island.
