Great location, home needs some love.

  • 4 of 5

Could not ask for a better location on Elbow Cay. You have Ocean (Atlantic), Bay and Sea of Abaco at your doorstep. The studio is close to two great restaurants and just a short cart ride into Hope Town and the famous lighthouse. The price is right for what you get but I would like to see this wonderful property upgraded in every sense of the word. It needs some of everything. That said, we had a great stay and appreciate the use of this property. If you want to sell, let me know. Thx

Nice, but.....

  • 3 of 5

This is a nice property in a great location. BUT....one of the best features of the place, a sliding glass door going out to to the ocean view side, is broken and will not open. The glass is etched by sea salt spray and the view is not clear. Because the door will not open the wonderful breeze is limited and view obscured. The place is clean and well equipped but could be perked up quite a bit with just some beach themed bedding instead of brown and black! Lastly, beach access is over the dunes and directly off the deck of an adjacent cottage on the same property; all connected by a large, well designed deck. There are boards laid loosely from the deck leading to the dune. The boards that are laid on the dune are not only treacherous but wrong. The dunes should crossed on board walks to preserve them.

Owner's Response: Thank you for your comments, we are glad to hear you enjoyed the cottage and location. Sorry one of the sliding doors was not operable during your stay. My caretaker did let me know that it developed an issue and he was not able to repair it yet, it should soon be operable. We do have air conditioning and prefer that that door not be left open for long periods of time due to the direct beachfront location. The corrosive salt spray quickly contributes to issues and can lead to degradation (like the stuck door). I also appreciate your concern for the dune as we have been involved in rebuild efforts after a number of weather events. However, no building approval is available for "board walks" that you may be familiar with in other areas. I hope you return to enjoy the property, location, deck and of course all the surrounding area in Abaco has to offer. Thanks, Jon

The studio cottage is in the perfct location nestled between the Abaco and Seaspray inn, both just a short walk away. The cottage is simply decorated but cozy and comfortable with awsome views of the ocean and bay from the wrap around porch, the perfect place to have coffee in the morning and watch the stunning sunrise or a cocktail in the evening as the sun sets over the bay. It is also the perfect place to gaze at the moon and stars which can be clearly seen, almost as if you could reach out and touch them as there is no light pollution due to the location of the cottage. Magical!

Both Jon the owner and Jean the housekeeper were great and assisted us in a timely manner when needed. We had quite a few power outages during our visit but they didn't last too long, the Island is known for them and it didn't take away from our enjoyment. Internet was not an issue for us, we logged onto the Abaco Inn site as a guest and were able to get good service not only at the Inn but at the cottage too! The only improvement I would recommend is the beach access, the two boards are very wobbly and make it hard to walk across, good balance is definitely needed so maybe something more secure.

Thanks again Jon and Jean too for a great trip! Highly recommend 👍?👍?
