Oceanfront Cottage With Great Location And White Sound Dockage

Please note * For any who may not be aware this area was severely impacted by hurricane Dorian. The damage was significant, but restoration is happening at a rapid pace. (This cottage's repairs have been completed, and it is ready for guests.) A few restaurants have opened on the island now, so dining out is an option for visitors. You may wish to do some research on the area to get an idea of present condition which changes often. Sea Oats Cottage was not severely damaged during the storm but has a new roof, has been painted inside and out, and redecorated. Sea Oats Cottage is a direct Oceanfront Studio tucked just behind the ocean dune, steps from the beach. It's a perfect stay for one or two people in a very desirable location three miles south of Hope Town. Most mornings start with beautiful sunrises over the ocean. Enjoy the amazing deck around the property which is covered to the east of the cottage and has a gazebo on the west side. The cottage is within easy walking distance of Abaco Inn. There are three small grocery stores on the island. The picturesque Hope Town settlement, famous for the candy striped light house, is about a 15 minute golf cart ride. Golf carts and boats are available for rent from several places in the area. If you have not yet experienced the Abaco islands you will be truly amazed at the crystal clear water and beautiful islands. The people are friendly and helpful making this a top-notch vacation destination. For those of you familiar with Hope Town and Elbow Cay you will appreciate the oceanfront location that is so close to Abaco Inn. **Please note Since Hurricane Dorian, the only way to get internet is through local cellphone networks, BTC or Aliv. Many visitors are bringing an unlocked cellphone and purchasing a weekly or monthly plan. The rates are reasonable. SIM cards can be purchased in Marsh Harbour, but after the initial purchase, minutes and more data can be added remotely. Many visitors are choosing an Aliv plan because it seems to work best on Elbow Cay.

Island was Devistated by Hurricane Dorian
I did not take the trip because the Island of Elbow Cay was devistated by Hurricane Dorian in September 2019. The island still has no electricity or running water, most structures was heavily damaged or destroyed. The house I rented on line with Home-away (back in March 2019)and paid a deposit and purchased insurance was advertised as having electricity and A/C , a boat dock. The situation of the house prior to my arrival date was completely different. No boat dock, no running water and electricity was by generator. I am having difficulty getting my deposit back from the insurance, as they do not have a provision for Hurricane damage. I feel certain that Home-away or the owner of the home will refund my deposit if the insurance company does not.

5/5 Excellent

Great experience!!!!
Very nice and quiet. It is just as advertised. If your looking for a nice getaway without all the luxuries this is it. My wife and I had an amazing time and will most certainly be back. There was hot water, a fridge, a bed, and AC.

5/5 Excellent

Great Property. Great Location
The property is located in the center of the island and it is easy to get anywhere from the property. The owner is very good about replying and the caretaker was very helpful getting us settled in. We really enjoyed relaxing on the back porch and enjoying the quiet that Elbow Cay provides. We would definitely recommend this place.

5/5 Excellent

True Abaco charm
Exactly as advertised. Wonderful response and communication with owner. Caretaker is as genuine as you'll meet. Nice protected dock with easy access to the sound and Sea. Far enough from marinas to be quiet, only waves and occasional golf carts to lull you to sleep. Two to five minute walk to rent paddle boards, Kayaks, or Carts; buy bait or enjoy Local food and drinks. All in all a great value on a wonderfully preserved Island.

4/5 Good

Beautiful laid back island.
Loved the view and beach. Could use screens on patio doors as a critter got in and bit my friend. A grill, flashlights and candles when power goes out, hardly any hot water. But overall a pleasant stay
