About Susan Urich

Bahamian born with roots in Hope Town. Working in capital city, Nassau, but enjoying any free time spent in Hope Town.

Susan Urich purchased this cottage in 2011

Why Susan Urich chose Hope Town

Bringing the new year in with friends and was shown this property and fell in love with the high ceilings, large master bedroom on the ground floor, beautiful loft and especially the wrap around deck!

What makes this cottage unique

Generator on site with auto transfer switch. Listen to the sound of the waves breaking on the beach, allow the sounds of the ocean to lull you to sleep. Very close to private beach but within a short distance to the village and other great sight seeing places.

Great place to stay

  • 5 of 5

just came back from a one week family vacation @ Finders keepers . what a nice place . This place is in nice condition with recent upgrades (double pane windows , automatic generator , ac's, etc.) the house is well stocked with beach chairs , beach towels , BBQ , spices , kitchen wares , you named it . this is how you would keep your own vacation house stocked , not some stripped out rental . Susan made sure we had the caretakers contact info and arranged to have us picked up at the dock . Followed up to make sure everything was fine and we were enjoying ourselves . House has large master downstairs with nice Bathroom . Upstairs in the loft is two twins and a separate bathroom with shower . also separate ac system . the only note would be the stairs are steep and probably not good for an elderly person . Very well located and the Golf cart rental place is around the corner .

thanks susan !

FYI: back up generators are very important , power went out most nights for a while but generator turns on immediately and you stay cool and comfortable.

Amazing spot! Cool a/c and BEST WiFi on the island!

  • 5 of 5

Great central location which was easy for friends to find. Owner and caretaker(s) were extremely helpful and accommodating! The house had coolers and towels to use and an automatic generator so you never knew when Power was off on the island (I'm told it was often on our visit). Percent place for 2 couples or a family of four!

Nice Cottage in Hopetown

  • 3 of 5

This is the 2nd time we rented Finders Keepers! It is a clean, cozy cottage for our family of 4 with two boys ages 8 & 9. The bathrooms were updated and comfortable. The home is cooled with mini split AC systems that worked very well. Nice outside shower and decks.

This home is a reasonably priced home for those on the go like our family. We prefer to explore and island hop, and have a nice place to put our head down at the end of the day, and it is a perfect cottage for this.

We had some unfortunate luck though with no local phone service, TV service, or internet (the latter two were quite important to us). Apparently there is construction next door and they may have damaged the lines. Only problem is that the TV/Internet company only comes to Hopetown once a week for service calls.

We would rate this rental at 4 stars if it was not for the loss of TV/Internet and lack of phone.

Owner's Response: Thank you Rick for your review! I do appologize for the lack of local telephone and tv/internet services at the time of your stay which was unforeseen and beyond our control. So glad you had a great stay otherwise. Excited for some future updates to the cottage, so stay tuned! We would be happy to see you and your family again! All the best, Susan

Fabulous Bahamian Vacation!

  • 5 of 5

Great, clean, comfortable house with all the amenities we needed and more. Two boys loved their upstairs suite! Excellent location! midway between tahiti beach and town center. My favorite moment was sipping coffee on the front porch watching the sun rise. Wish we had played more at beach across the street - need more time! Golf cart is a must. Don't plan to rely on internet or phone (but that's typical of anywhere in the Bahamas). Super helpful having the VHF radio. Generator combatted all power outages.

Owner's Response: I am so happy you and your family enjoyed my cottage! Yes it is an ideal location if you want to be out of the main village of Hopetown. The internet problems are being worked on and hoping to get resolved in the near future. Once again thank you for sharing my "home away" and hope to see you and the family again in the not so distant future!! Susan Finders Keepers

No Surprises

  • 5 of 5

This was our seventh year to Elbow Cay and our third stay at Finders Keepers and it was just as great as our first. As usual, Rick Thompson and his son, Chad met us at the dock. They are both the friendliest and most helpful people you could hope for. Both dropped by separately during our stay to ensure we were comfortable and had everything we needed. Always a pleasure.

Finders Keepers is well situated just north of White Sound, just around the corner from Firefly, A&E Liquors, Mackies and the Food Store. The Abaco Inn is an easy 5 min ride to the south and HT less than 10 mins to the north.. There is a nice sandy beach with 'caves' nearby but the water tends to be a bit choppy for swimming, etc. We tend to spend most of our beach time at the town beach in HT

The house is clean, bright and well appointed. Both bathrooms have been updated. The beds are very comfortable and the house has excellent reception for WiFi and TV (hey, there was even a number of Canadian stations to make us feel at home). My only minor caution would be the access to the upstairs (2nd bedroom/bathroom) which may pose a bit of challenge to little kids and older folk

Regardless of where you stay, I would suggest most people will need a golf cart rental. All good folk on the Cay but I highly recommend Yvette and Kevin at Island Cart Rental.

Owner's Response: As usual it was our pleasure having you both share my cottage yet once again and recognize the changes we have made to make you as comfortable and relaxed as possible as this is our intention! Enjoy the rest of the year and hope to see you next year! Susan

White Sound is a development adjacent to Hope Town on Elbow Cay which is only a 45 minute flight from Florida. Hope Town was settled by Loyalists fleeing the American Revolution and founded in the late 1700's. The Wyannie Malone Museum memorializes the lives of the these early inhabitants. Apart from history, Elbow Cay is known for its wonderful surfing, stunning beaches, exemplary snorkeling, creeks perfect for kayaking, and breathtaking sunsets over the Atlantic Ocean. Hope Town, Abaco is home to an annual sailing regatta. The fantastic sailing and fishing offered in waters of Hope Town is not to be missed. Hope Town should be seen by bicycle, boat, kayak or golf cart.
