Lovely and airy secluded beach house, beach across the sand road.
That's the description of Buttonwood Hammock written in the house guest book recently. The house sits above the trees, a peaceful, private oasis on the tranquil north end of Elbow Cay, just one mile north of the quaint settlement of Hope Town. The spectacular ocean beach is just across the sand road, and the Sea of Abaco's pristine gentle beach is nearby as well. From the widow's walk atop the house, a 360 degree water panorama awaits; star gazing at night is breathtaking.
Perched on stilts, this beautiful 3BR/2Bath home has commanding views of the island and the sea surrounding it. High ceilings lend spaciousness to the living room, dining room and fully-equipped kitchen. The wrap-around deck is perfect for al fresco dining, and birdwatchers will be enthralled, especially with the hummingbirds visiting the feeder.
The master bedroom has a queen bed an attached bath, featuring a tub with shower. Twin beds grace the 2nd downstairs bedroom, next to the 2nd bathroom. The loft, comfortable for children or a 3rd couple, has a queen bed.
If you love deserted beaches, the sound of the ocean lulling you to sleep, spectacular snorkeling and diving, boating to other islands in the clear aquamarine Sea of Abaco, abd generally un-plugging from the world, this is for you!
The owners, full-time residents of Hope Town, are always available to be of assistance.

About Chris and Jill Prewitt
We sailed into Hope Town harbour in 1995, and instantly fell in love with it! We built the house in '96 and moved to Hope Town to run a sailboat charter company. We retired from that in 2007, and are permanent residents of Abaco -- this is our home, and we love living here!
Chris and Jill Prewitt purchased this House in 1996
Why Chris and Jill Prewitt chose Elbow Cay
Having fallen in love with Hope Town, we bought the lot on the beautiful, quiet north end of Elbow Cay.
What makes this House unique
We designed the house as an open, airy beach house, with spectacular views of the surroundings. We love to have all the windows and the French doors open to the outside....though there is always the chance that a bird will join us! -- opening the hatch to the widow's walk is the quickest way to provide him with an exit. The deck is the perfect spot for eating, reading and just enjoying nature. We have welcomed renters to the house since we built it, and they all comment that they love the peace, quiet and beauty of the spot, especially after a busy day out on the water.

My husband and I celebrated our 30th wedding anniversary at this serenely beautiful location in Elbow Cay. Jill & Chris could not have been more accommodating and were helpful from booking to arranging transportation for departure. This was our first time to the Abacos and we loved it; and hope to return again!!!
Chris and Jill’s home is well equippped for a relaxing island getaway. They answered numerous questions before our arrival, picked us up at the ferrry in their golf cart, and provided valuable local information. They want to make sure you are comfortable in their home and enjoy Hopetown. Sunrises on the Atlantic side (across the entrance road) and sunsets on the Sea of Abaco (a two minute walk) made our first trip to the Bahamas a vacation to remember. Town is easily accessible by walking the Atlantic Beach or a mile bike ride on the dirt road. Don’t forget to climb the lighthouse for fantastic views!!
Amazing hosts. Chris and Jill
Wonderful house on the north end. Beautiful beaches 3 minute walk. Town is a short 1 mile bike ride.
Serene and comfy
We loved staying at Buttonwood Hammock. The home is complete with all essentials and in a peaceful and beautiful setting in the trees. The ocean is just a 2 minute walk away and the Sea of Abaco just 5 minutes away. Falling asleep and waking up to the sound of the ocean in this home was blissful. Our only regret was that our stay of one week was not a long enough time in paradise.
We had a wonderful Thanksgiving week at Buttomwood. Jill and Chris are great hosts. Very helpful and accommodating. They made us feel at home in their home.
Having the bikes was a great convenience. Riding to Hope Town, exploring the picturesque town. People were friendly and helpful.
The island is beautiful . We rented a boat and went island hopping. This place is a paradise.
We are coming back
Thanks, Dave, Patricia, Thomas(18) , Bella (16) and Katherine (17)
Very special with very caring hosts!
