Susan Urich or Judy Thompson purchased this cottage in 2011
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!
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.
Finders Keepers worked out great for our family of 4. The upstairs loft was perfect for the kids and the master bedroom downstairs was nice and roomy. The house was clean and fully equipped with wifi, cable TV and an automatic back-up generator which was needed daily during the summer brownouts that are typical on Elbow Cay. The central location on the island worked out good for us. We were a short cart ride away from our boat in White Sound and still an easy cart ride to town. The beach across the street is great for beach combing and exploring the tide pools at low tide, but it is not the best swimming beach. The owner was very responsive too when making our reservations.
My wife and I spent nearly 2 weeks at Finders Keepers, we've been to the island a few times over the years, but I have to say this house was the best we've stayed in on Elbow Cay. Judy, the caretaker, is fantastic and always just a phone call away. It's a very comfortable, well appointed house with all the amenities you could want: wrap around deck with barbecue, 2 outdoor showers, fast wifi, cable tv, strong A/C, a hammock, and even a generator for getting through the occasional power cuts! All this and just 30 seconds from the beach. Highly recommend this house for anyone wanting to stay in Hope Town...We'll be back!
Beautifully appointed. We had 7 friends over for dinner out on the deck, plenty of glasses, plates, pots , pan, etc. A bit out of the way, Spent a morning on the nearby beach reading and did not see another person...very peaceful.
My husband and I just spent 2 weeks at Finder's Keepers. We had a great time, the house was perfect! We had sun nearly every day; we were able to cool the house with the breeze and didn't use the AC at all. The wrap around deck was great, the cottage location was just what we wanted, and Judy was great. We were given easy instructions to give to the ferry driver and we were met by Judy who showed us to the house. A golf cart made it easy to get around the island. This was our 2nd trip to Elbow Cay, would highly recommend Finder's Keepers for travelers wanting a quiet, relaxing vacation.
This was not our first time to Elbow Cay but was our first stay at Finders Keepers. Susan the owner, was an absolute pleasure to deal with. Excellent communications and easy transactions.
We were met by Judy upon arrival in Hopetown and she and her husband ensured our stay was a happy one from start to finish. We contacted her with one small issue during the week which was immediately taken care of. Out with that, she still dropped by during our stay to make sure everything was as it should be. Very much appreciated.
The home is perfectly situated in the middle of the island around White Sound, near to groceries and AE liquor and still only a short drive to the town. Firefly is just around the corner with Seaspray Marina and Abaco Inn also nearby. The house sits on a quiet lane that feels private and secluded yet has good access to all the necessary amenities. A short walk takes you to the beach access and nearby 'caves'.
The home is very clean and well kept. The rooms are big enough to relax and feel comfortable and are equipped with TV and WiFi throughout. The main bedroom is roomy and feels cool with your choice of two windows, ceiling fan and AC. There is a comfortable sitting area with a small dining table beside it. The kitchen is small but well appointed and functional. The upstairs is the perfect spot for a couple of older kids or teenagers with its own sitting area and small bathroom. My only caution would the steepness of the stairs for young kids or less mobile folk. An added fun addition is the outdoor shower. Judy has anticipated all your needs and there was nothing we needed that was not there.
I would highly recommend this property and will seriously consider renting again if we return to Elbow Cay next year
We thoroughly enjoyed the "real Bahamian" feeling of Finder's Keepers. The cottage is equipped with everything we needed for a delightful holiday. The loft reno is very well done - making the second bedroom a very comfortable space - and having such a nice upstairs bathroom was a bonus. Best of all were the outside eating areas, a wrap-around deck and the outdoor shower.
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.
