About the Property
3 Bedrooms, 3 Bathrooms with Wrap-around Deck for Great Views
Well built, charming two-story home is right on the water. Interior decor is comfortable and inviting, and layout is great for entertaining or spending family time together. Downstairs offers a separate in-law suite for privacy (1 bedroom with full kitchen and bath), while the upstairs' two bedrooms are on opposite sides of the house and have similar furnishings/ amenities. A well-stocked kitchen is open to the living area. Outdoor showers on decks of both levels are great for coming in from the ocean (kids, salt and sand!). The wrap-around deck has plenty of comfortable seating for all your company to enjoy the sunsets and outdoor eating.
While staying at the Halcyon House, rent a boat and enjoy the numerous islands throughout the Abacos; visit different restaurants and attractions throughout your stay. Come back to the dock at Halcyon at night to enjoy your sunset and the gorgeous surroundings. Or, stay on Lubbers Quarters and snorkel, paddle board, or fish just off of your long dock. Head over to Cracker P's for lunch or dinner. Cook fresh seafood from the Down Deep charters house a few doors down! Your choice!

Why the Owner Chose Hope Town, The Bahamas:
We found the Halcyon House in June 2014 on a visit to the Abacos with family. We had made several visits to islands before and had always talked about one day buying a place of our own. A real estate booklet caught our eye over lunch, and next thing we knew, we were heading to Lubbers Quarters. Then, once we saw the house, we knew that it was meant to be. We closed in October 2014 and are happy to be sharing our wonderful new family getaway with you and yours!
The Unique Benefits at this House:
Come see for yourself! Get away from the hustle and bustle, and enjoy the beauty and peacefulness of the west side of Lubbers! Kids will love the bright starfish, fish, and conchs in the clear waters as well as the curly tailed lizards and colorful birds. Find fabulous shells on local beaches. Adults - close the laptops and get out and go - or simply relax and unwind on the comfort of your deck with a good book or hit the dock with your fishing pole! Two double paddle boards made available to renters as well!
