About Glen

We live in Northern VA and fell in love with Elbow Cay Bahamas in an area they call Hope Town Bahamas. The picture is from one of our many wonderful vacations taken on the front steps of Sunrise Point.

Glen purchased this house in 2004

Why Glen chose Hope Town

We purchased Sunrise Point in 2003 because our then young children love the beach, surfing, snorkeling, fishing and the Bahama Island Life. The weather in the Bahamas is great year round and Sunrise Point became our winter escape. We vacationed in several homes in the Abacos prior to deciding to purchase on Elbow Cay / Hope Town as the best place to make an investment. Elbow Cay was our choice because it is very safe area where kids can be on their own and the doors open. We love the easy access to fantastic beaches and the amenities available on Elbow Cay.

What makes this house unique

We've done an extensive remodeling of our 'round house' to bring it up to modern standards but have not destroyed the original charm of this home.

The home has full house air conditioning, modern appliances, automatic whole house power generator and room for 8 to 10 people. In 2012 we put a new deck surface downstairs, we bought new furniture for the upper deck and living room and we installed new BBQ and Gas Grills and new air conditioning units for both the upper and lower units. The home has great bones and we've done continuous improvements.

One of the great things about our home is that each bedroom on the lower levels has a door that exits to the lower deck. This allows our guests to come and go without disturbing others.

The hurricane shutter are hinged on our home and stay attached so that they can be closed at anytime. Sunrise Point has extensive windows letting in lots of light but if you close the shutters to a room you can make this room completely dark.

Sunrise Point has a completely open floor plan upstairs. When the doors are open on a nice day the gentle breeze is wonderful and the sound of the Ocean peaceful.

Sunrise Points maintains a laid back attitude where you can relax and enjoy yourself in a casual setting with the most spectacular views and great weather. Don't worry about a little sand on the floor and leave the door open to let the breeze come in so you and your guests can enjoy the sounds and smells of the ocean!

A few steps out of the front door and you are on a wonderful sandy beach. Our house is right on the ocean! Dock is available on Sea of Abaco giving you spectacular views and access to this side of the island as well as a place to put your boat. Our dock is across the Island from Sunrise Point and a great place to put your boat, hang out, fish, or just take a cooler and watch a beautiful Bahama Sunset. The downstairs bedrooms have separate keyed entrances. People can come and go without disturbing others. Surrounding the home is a full deck on both levels with ample seating for all. Two AC units insure that you will always have Air Conditioning. Full house Generator kicks on automatically if Island electricity fails.

Perfect House For Us

  • 4 of 5

Family vacation: Nov 4-11, parents, sibs, and spouses. Average age (minus parents) 54 yr.

As title says, this was the perfect house for us. Four bedrooms, each with it's own entryway from the exterior of the house...everyone could come and go as they pleased without disturbing others. Comfortable gathering area upstairs with spectacular view of the ocean. Well appointed, working kitchen. Comfortable seating and views from the wrap around deck. AC worked great, water pressure was good and water was hot.

Hope Town is a 10 minute golf cart ride away, though we only rode "to town" twice the entire week. Seaspray Resort, Firefly Resort, and Abaco Inn are just minutes away for food and libations.

The beach in front of the house is good for sunbathing, walking, and beach combing...but not for swimming. Though we did see surfers on a daily basis. Tahiti beach is close by and is excellent for swimmers young and old. And with the addition of the "Thirsty Cuda", the floating, swim up bar parked off the point on a daily's the spot to be on the beach.

Overall, the house is a winner. A few small flaws that are easily upgrade in the bbq grill on the deck would be nice and light, folding chairs for the beach would be a plus-the chairs provided are bulky and clumsy to carry. I would most certainly recommend this house for any group - family, friends, or even as a business retreat - that are looking for an escape.

Quiet & Peaceful

  • 5 of 5

Sunrise Point was well layed out. We all loved how there was a separate master room downstairs & another area w/ a second master & 2 double beds. We were a party of two families that essentially had our own private quarters. Wanda was extremely helpful & sweet. Overall, very worthwhile & much thanks to Glen who was very accommadating!

Can't wait for 2018 trip back

  • 5 of 5

If we stay on Elbow again, we will stay at Sunrise Point. We rent more than a few houses every year and SRP was the best stocked house we have ever rented. Everything we needed and everything worked. They went out of her way to take care of us and to make sure our trip was one-of-kind.

Beautiful location!

  • 5 of 5

We just returned from a wonderful week at Sunrise Point. It was a great home for 3 couples. The location right on the beach is the best! We could sit on the porch and listen to the waves. We had a golf cart (a must have!) and enjoyed riding around the island to different restaurants, shops and beaches. There are so many places to go! The wifi at the house was great and the generator was a huge plus in my book as the electric went off several times but we never even noticed. We rented a boat and loved having our own private dock just a short cart ride across the island. We went island hopping every day and loved coming back to Sunrise Point. Wanda was always available to us as needed and went out of her way to make sure we had a perfect vacation. We cooked several meals there and enjoyed the large, stocked kitchen. I highly recommend this rental in a great location on Elbow Cay.....on the beach, with private dock, close to town and grocery store and restaurants and the Sea Spray Marina. This place has it all! Thanks for sharing your wonderful home with us!

Beautiful Views and Relaxing Home

  • 5 of 5

Loved staying here - beautiful ocean view, great house for our group. Glen and his property manager Wanda were very acommodating and responsive. Easy cart ride to sea spray, Tahiti beach, Abaco inn, and north into town. We loved the use of the dock on the sea side and utilized that with the boat we rented. It's an easy boat ride across the sea/bay to Cracker Ps on Lubbers Landing and down to the sandbar at the south end of the island.
