About the Property

Cottage, 3 Bedrooms, 3 Baths (Sleeps 8)

This one-time restaurant and historical island landmark is now a fully converted, spacious cottage which boasts great amenities. Rudy's Place has 3 bedrooms each with an ensuite bath, an open-concept main living area (where daybeds can be converted into two twin beds for additional sleeping space), a gourmet kitchen stocked with all the housewares you will need, generator, central air-conditioning, internet, cable TV, DVD player, stereo/CD, linens, towels, etc. Everything in this homey cottage is new, with the exception of the original restaurant bar (belly up and blend yourself a Rum Punch or open up a cold Bahamian Kalik beer) and some other pieces of memorabilia. The wide front porch is the perfect place to kick back and enjoy a book. A shared dock on the Sea of Abaco is a short walk away or rent a golf cart for the drive to Hope Town settlement, which is about a 20 minute walk. Rent a bicycle and explore the whole cay—from Tahiti Beach to the north end. We have great access to the south end of the island, restaurants, beaches and a convenience store. Rudy's Place Cottage offers many conveniences . . . exactly what makes for a perfect vacation in paradise. And while visiting us, be sure to ask the locals about Rudy's Place Cottage . . . they can tell you a few good stories from the old days! As you will see, our outdoor spaces are a work in progress—we will update with new photos as improvements are made.

Owner info

Year Purchased: 2009

About the owner: We have been spending time in Abaco and specifically Hope Town for many years. We love this cay and decided to purchase a property to ensure we have a wonderful spot to come to and enjoy the beauty of the Family Islands. It's a much slower and quieter pace than Nassau or Freeport. We are blessed to have discovered Abaco.

Why the Owner Chose Elbow Cay, Bahamas:
We saw that Rudy's Place came on the market. At the time it was a good value and we were familiar with it because of having many wonderful dinners there. It was built in 1984 as a restaurant. We knew of a great builder here and as a result, decided to buy and convert it to a lovely cottage. He did a beautiful job! Although it does not have a water view, from a owner's perspective, it's perfect. It has weathered hurricanes with very little consequence, and ongoing maintenance is a much easier task. There are beautiful shade trees out front, that keep it cool and pleasant. We are proud of what we have done with the property. We are always adding as we go to make it even better.

The Unique Benefits at this Cottage:
Being able to have 3 private bedrooms with attached or ensuite baths (with beautiful terrazzo tile work) is so nice. The two day beds in the main living area (that we made ourselves, thank you for the idea Pottery Barn) actually have very plush twin mattresses, so can be used for additional sleeping. The kitchen is fully stocked with a LOT of glass/barware from the cottage's previous life as a restaurant. You can have quite a party!
