Elbow Cay, Bahamas
Catch a Wave Bahamas
Settled in the 1780s by a family of English Loyalists, some people say that Elbow Cay is an island that time forgot.
The island is known for its spectacular beaches. One of the best in The Bahamas, Tahiti Beach, lies in splendid isolation at the far end of Elbow Cay, with sparkling waters and powdery white sand, just a pleasant walk from the property.
The 3 bedroom beach house is custom built and designed. It has a colorful Bahamian/coastal style decor and furniture, with beautiful sunrise views of the Atlantic Ocean and White Sound. Just steps to a great surfing beach and minutes to the Sea Spray Resort (full service Marina, restaurant and outdoor Tiki Bar).
On the first floor there is an open living room with windows and glass sliders out onto covered porch area. Also an entertainment center with large flat screen TV/Home Theater DVD/MP3 hookup and plenty of board games. The sunroom flows directly off the living room with sofa and matching ottoman, coffee and end table and a large wall mounted flat screen TV. The glass sliding doors lead directly out onto the deck, looking out over the gazebo and White Sound. The dining room area seats 6 and has beautiful water views.
The kitchen is fully equipped with designer GE Clean Steel appliances, including ceramic top electric stove, built in microwave above, side by side refrigerator with in door water filtration and automatic ice maker, dishwasher, granite countertops and custom glass tile back splashes. There is a door to outside covered deck/dining area, with bench seating along the entire back wall and a separate smaller seating area and fully enclosed, private outside shower. On the large side deck area, there is a custom, private, swimming pool, arbor with privacy lattice walls and gazebo, separated by a locking gate.
There is plenty of seating/lounge areas to enjoy sunning and great views of the Atlantic and White Sound.
Downstairs, there are two bedrooms, one queen and two twins beds (can be converted into a KING BED) and hall bath with tub/shower and double sink vanity with granite top. The Master Suite is upstairs and features a king bed, flat screen TV/DVD combo, separate AC mini split, bathroom with large custom tile shower and frameless glass door, double sink vanity and granite top. The glass sliding door opens onto private deck with magnificent views of the Atlantic and White Sound.

Catch a Wave Bahamas
Loved returning to the Abaco Islands after so many years. Enjoyed our daily visits to Tahiti Beach, Vernon's Key Lime Pie and fresh baked bread. Also the sunset cocktails at Abaco Inn sometimes followed by fresh fish dinner. One must rent a golf cart to get around. We rented ours from Island Rentals for $300 for the week. They delivered and picked up at the house. Can't thank caretaker, Steve, enough for all he did for us.”
