Hope Town is a unique town located around a beautiful harbour. Most of the attractions are close to the harbour. This includes restaurants, marinas, art galleries, pristine beaches, bars, playground for kids, a museum and more.

The North End public dock is 150m from the back door of the Beach House, with room to dock a rental boat free of charge if desired. A rental boat opens up a whole bunch of possibilities for day trips and outings. The local ferry service will drop off and pick up from this dock as well.

The island ( Elbow Cay ) runs north-south, and has two distinct sides, each with their own character - the 'Ocean' side, on the east, facing the Atlantic, and the 'Bay' or 'Sea of Abaco' side, on the west. Both sides are beautiful - the ocean side has coral reefs, crashing surf (depending on the wind) and gorgeous long beaches. It is a short walk, maybe 300m, out the back door to the ocean side beach - a beautiful beach to walk and a fantastic place to snorkel on a coral reef straight off the beach. When the wind is up and the waves are crashing it can be too rough to snorkel, but when there is no wind you can be rewarded with a terrific experience. One can walk all the way to town on this beach, and we often do. The bay side is more tranquil, has fewer beaches but the ones that exist are very special - notably Tahiti Beach in the south and Nathan's Bay in the north, directly in front of the Beach House. These are the perfect swimming and lounging beaches. The wind generally blows from the east so the beaches on the west side are sheltered, it is like being on a beautiful turquoise lake with a natural white sand beach and crystal clear water. Even at low tide the bottom is sand. One can pull a small boat up on the beach or anchor in waist deep water. Access to the North End road is somewhat restricted, so there is very little road traffic. The locals often bring their boats around to this beach on weekends for a few hours of enjoying the water with their families, confirming what a special place this is. We've been told many times 'You've got a real pretty spot here' by those who know... For the most part the beach is completely deserted though, it will feel like your own private paradise. Snorkeling from this beach is also enjoyable - you will see fish, can dive for conch or spear lobster.

For the hard core angler, there is almost every type of fishing available in the area. You can go offshore on the ocean side and bottom fish for large grouper or troll for tuna, dorado and wahoo. On the bay side you can hand line for pan fish, cast off the dock or beach, or go bone fishing in the mangroves behind Snake Cay.

Simply playing around on the beach in front of the house might be the most enjoyable of all. We have a few small boats available for use, a much used and much loved Sunfish, a small rowboat, a 2 man kayak and a small kid's kayak. Our caretaker will discuss some precautions and restrictions but provided you are comfortable using these boats you will be welcome to have fun with them.

After a day of playing in the sun, what could be better than relaxing on the porch or barbecuing while the sun sets right in front of you. There is a gas barbecue and a wood burning barbecue/smoker for the adventurous.

In general, Hope Town is a lot of fun, with a thriving social scene, and being 10 minutes away on an idyllic beach is hard to beat.

The Beach House is simply a piece of paradise! My family and I had a magical visit on this beautiful property. The location can't be beat- the beach is pristine and quiet, the water so calm for my young children. The dock is steps away, so renting a boat is the way to travel. As for the house itself- it is just as pictured- wonderfully equipped, clean and stylish. I especially appreciated the beautiful kitchen and relaxing deck. The kayak and little sailboat are also big bonuses. Our experience at The Beach House exceeded expectations- it was hard to leave this gorgeous spot!

This home is the perfect location!

  • 4 of 5

Right on the beach where the water is so calm, so clear and perfect for wading out and snorkeling! There is a great porch where we enjoyed coffee in the morning and cocktails in the evening. The home was comfortable and felt like home away from home. Our only complaint was the poor wifi but we don't blame the homeowner for that! Everything is a short golf cart or boat ride from the house. Boat dock is a 2 minute walk or 1 minute golf cart ride so it's definitely a convenient location. Locals were wonderful, food was great and we plan to go back in the future!

The BEST location on the island.

  • 5 of 5

This house is located on the best beach. It is what you picture while staying on an island. Denis(owner) and the caretakers are fantastic and will help you with all of the questions you have.

Rent a boat to see all the attractions and hit all the local restaurants and bars by day.

Great vacation. Great rental. We will be back!!!

Awesome home with great views

  • 5 of 5

This home is wonderful and it has everything. Great views, large and spacious, and absolutely beautifully done. The owner lets you use the bikes and boats on the property, which is a huge plus. Everyone had a great time using them and there is a lot to explore in this area. I can't say it enough that the views and sunsets are amazing.

We rented a golf cart to get around the south side of the island, which worked well. We also rented a boat for a couple days, which was even better. A boat ride to town is the fastest and easiest way to travel, and the easiest way to get groceries back to the house.

We have stayed on elbow cay several times and my family definitely said this is the house they want to stay at when we come back. I certainly will be back and I do not hesitate when I say this beach house is highly recommended. The owner and caretakers were very pleasant and easy to deal with, which makes any vacation so much more relaxing.

Thank you for letting us stay in your wonderful home.

Owner's Response: Thank you SO much for your review. I'm very happy you had such a great stay, and all I can say when I read a review like this is that I am even more motivated to make sure things are perfect for our guests. The house kind of speaks for itself, and we try to go the little extra distance by having a couple of basic bikes and boats available for use, but it can be challenging keeping them all serviceable. If they aren't used for a while the chains on the bikes can seize up solid with the salt air for example, and nobody might notice until the next person wants to use them. Obviously Yvenet has been taking care of them and ensuring everything is operational - I am very happy about that and will make sure to pass on your kind remarks to him. I still can't guarantee what we will have waiting at the house in the way of boats or bikes - if someone forgets to drag the kayak up the shore when the tide comes in it may be a while before I can replace it - but we will always try to include something to get out on the water or pedal around on. I need them to be there when I go down! Thanks again, and we look forward to having you back! Denis

Beautiful view right on the beach and convenient to Hope Town

  • 4 of 5

Nice house for 2 couples or a family - back up generator was appreciated since the power goes out so frequently on Elbow. Great kitchen and living room area. The covered deck was the best! I would definitely rent again.

Owner's Response: Thank you so much, we're very glad you enjoyed your stay and look forward to having you again. When I'm at the house I basically live on the porch, it is pretty hard to beat. All the best. Denis
