Oceanfront home, private and quiet but in town.
Skyward Beach House has a perfect location in the settlement of Hope Town - it stands just behind a dune on a beautiful beach. It''s the only property on a quiet sandy lane leading from the village to the beach (apart from our one-bedroom beach cabin, VRBO #140939) surrounded on all sides by a palm grove and other trees. No other property within the settlement is so peaceful and private yet convenient to everything.
The house, wood-sided and with a Bermuda roof, is informal, colorful, light and bright. It has two bedrooms and a loft with a queen size bed. Decks surround the house at different levels, including a widow's walk atop the house with the best views of Hope Town, the harbor, lighthouse and the ocean.

About Sabra Hill
My siblings and I own this beautiful property that was once our father's primary residence. He fell in love with Hope Town as a young man, buying the property in the early 1960s and we grew up loving this home on the beach. I am a teacher who currently resides with my husband in Annapolis, MD, but am lucky to have a great caretaker to help you with anything you might need while in Hope Town.
Why Sabra Hill chose Elbow Cay
Skyward's location is ideal: in town and accessible to all the shops and restaurants, but on the beach.
What makes this House unique
The gorgeous views and ocean breezes will captivate vacationers.

Awesome place to get away
House is charming and full of character and cute island art. Great location hidden away! Gives you everything you want. steps to the beach and town. Need a cart to get to south side of the island that is about it.
Perfect location and atmosphere
Just steps from town, dock, beach and nestled in gorgeous treetops with hummingbirds, woodpeckers and night herons. Climb to the top and you can see the HARBOUR and ocean.
I am so happy you enjoyed your Hope Town holiday in Skyward!
Lovely stay in paradise with my family.
Mike was a splendid caretaker and wemt above and beyond the call of duty to make our stay smooth sailing.
Location, Location, Location!
We had a wonderful week in Hopetown and could not have been more pleased with the service and location of Skyward. Sabra and her team were fantastic to work with and we just can't thank them enough for all they did to make our visit incredible!
Thank you so much for your review! I am really glad you all had a great time in Skyward and Hope Town.
Stayed in April 2015 - fantastic place
We stayed for 8 nights in April and had a wonderful stay. The beach is just over the dune, a 30 second walk and it feels like you have your own private beach with the most amazing sea to just frolic in. Would not hesitate to book again. Air con units in the downstairs bedrooms to keep you cool, fans upstairs. It really is a place where you can get away from it all and no need for a golf cart as you can walk into Hopetown in minutes. We hired a boat for a week and docked it at the public docks a few minutes walk away which was perfect for exploring and island hopping. Would love to come back some day!
Wonderful place to stay!
Our family of four spent eight days at Skyward Beach House in March, 2015. It was a wonderful experience! It is a very special place, and the owner is terrific. We have two teenage sons, one 14 and the other 18, and my husband's brother joined us for half our time. The house offered plenty of room, incredible beach views and access and the ever present sound of the pounding waves!! We really couldn't have asked for a better place. We came to Hopetown for five years in a row about a decade ago. Our stay at Skyward Beach House offered us the perfect place from which to get to know Hopetown again. We can't imagine ever staying elsewhere if we are able to make it back to Hopetown in the future. Enjoy!
Elbow Cay is one of the Abaco Out Islands of the Bahamas, with much history; five miles long by a max. of a quarter of a mile wide. Population 500ish. Hope Town is the only settlement on the island - a pretty village of painted wooden cottages and houses set around a beautiful harbor with it's famous red and white candy-striped lighthouse, the last manned, non-automated lighthouse at the harbor entrance. Beautiful empty sand beaches to explore, boats, golf carts and bicycles to rent. Great swimming and snorkeling. The charm of Hope Town lies in its old-time simplicity, relaxing unspoiled village atmosphere, perfect empty beaches.
