About Lynda C. Brown

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 Lynda C. Brown chose Hope Town

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.

What makes this house unique

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!

Guestbook comments from the owner

The house was actually better than described. The outside OK, the inside great! The furnishings are great and the house is very clean.

We liked all the space and that each bedroom has their own bathroom.

It was a great place for a great price and had much more appliances and pots/pans than we thought it would.

A very important amenity we offer is a diesel-powered generator. It's an island country and there are times you will need backup power. We have a couple who caretake our cottage on the island. They are very helpful and available for asking questions and addressing any immediate needs.

Great soundproof house in the middle of everything!

  • 4 of 5

We have been renting houses in the Abacos for over 30 years and Rudy's Place is a favorite! I am sure we will rent this house again. It has three great bedrooms with ensuite baths and a nice large common area. The kitchen has every kitchen gadget that you could think of and the fridg kept everything very cold!! The air conditioning works perfectly and when the power went out (3 times) the generator started right up. I cannot say enough about our stay in this perfectly clean, updated house! There are a couple of things you need to know, you do need a gold cart to move around the island, the phone and WIFI were out for our last 4 days and there is no view. We made it our vacation home for two weeks and loved it and Elbow Cay. We'll be back!!
