Elbow Cay, Abaco, Bahamas house near Tahiti beach
Hope Town, Abaco, Bahamas
Additional Location Information
Storrhaven house is located in the private Dorros Cove area of Elbow Cay. This area is the southern most tip of Elbow Cay, about 3 miles from Hope Town. Tahiti Beach is a crescent shaped beach located here, considered one of the 10 best beaches of all of the 700 islands of the Bahamas. The area is quiet, very residential (no businesses), and most houses are on one+ acres of land. There is a private dock located at the northern end of Tahiti Beach for mooring your rental boat with capacity of 10' beam and 35' length (approximate 8' draft). Hope Town is a quaint village (2 main roads and several short-connecting cross roads; size: about 500' x 2000'), and here you'll find small shops, 6+ restaurants (most on or over the harbor waters), grocery stores (2), marina (for gas), lighthouse (you can climb up the spiral 101 steps to the top and "pop" out the small door to the walkway around the top of the lighthouse; great view + fun to see the mechanisms of how the lighthouse works; free admission, diving expeditions (1/2 and 1 day SCUBA and snorkeling trips), private fishing guides, etc. Using a small rental boat, you can travel relatively safely in the mostly calm inner waterway called the Abaco Sea. This Sea is about 2-5 miles wide (varies depending on what part of Abaco Island's eastern shore you are on) and about 30 miles long, with lots of little keys (called Cays in the Bahamas -- but pronounced "key") to visit and explore. There are two Bahamanian National Preserves located within 15 minute travel (by boat) from Tahiti Beach where snorkeling/diving is great. Snorkeling is also good around the Mermaid Islands (about 2 minutes from Tahiti Beach) and some beautiful coral heads (in about 6'-8' of water) in the northern part of Tilloo Cay (about 5 minutes from Tahiti Beach). This latter area is great for the inexperienced snorkeler as it is in shallow water, about 20' from shore, in the almost always glass-calm western side of Tilloo Cay. Down at the southern part of Tilloo Cay is Tangerina Beach, a 2700' long beautiful white sand beach, extremely calm 99% of the time, shallow (2' - 4' deep -- great for younger children), and is almost always deserted (no homes here). 1 minute south of this beach is an area we call "Stingray Bay", where you'll usually see several sting rays in the shallow waters, then 3 minutes south of Tangerina Beach are the Pelican Cays. Here there is a beautiful 4' high flat-on-top white sand peninsula that is about 280' x 350' in size, has nice moderate waves on two sides (quite safe), and great beach combing especially for little sponges and shells. Nice place to "lounge" in the water for several hours, and young kids (5-10 years old) have great fun in the waves. There are several marinas in the Marsh Harbour and Hope Town area where all types of boat rentals are available (15', 17', 22', 25', etc), and most will deliver to either of Hope Town's 2 Public Docks for your pickup. Any other questions, please ask. Information point: there is a large shell throughout this area called a CONCH which is both beautiful and is one of the foods you can eat (my favorite) as either Conch Fritters, Conch Burger, Conch Salad, or Conch Platter. Virtually every restaurant in the region offers Conch "something" on their menu. If you haven't had it before, it tastes very mild, very pleasant, so try it. Great fried, in a fritter batter, or even raw in a salad. Final note on CONCH: it is pronounced "KON-K" -- same pronunciation as "I just got a conk in the head with a falling coconut" (the "CH" is pronounced as a "K" when you say it).

Additional notes from the owner
All legal rentals in Bahamas are required to collect a 10% Bahamas Government Rental tax on your rental rate; we collect this10% tax rate.
FlipKey charges a 5% booking fee, HOWEVER, we (the owners of Storrhaven) will personally refund this entire booking fee if you enter FlipKey's evaluation of your stay on FlipKey's site for this rental site within 90 days from the end of your stay at the Storrhaven house.
The $200 damage deposit is refunded in full 10 days after the end of your stay, sent to you directly by FlipKey, assuming no damage/breakage/loss.
Children under 2 years of age at time of booking are free, i.e., not included as a "guest" when calculating your rental rate.
Base rental rate is for 1-3 guests; additional guests staying with you for your total length of stay are $75/guest/week for each person above the 3 initial guests. FlipKey provides this calculation automatically when you enter the number of guests staying at the Storrhaven house. We review FlipKey's invoice that they send us, and we (the owners of Storrhaven) will review FlipKey's invoice before it is sent to you and make the appropriate, i.e., lower cost, adjustment to that invoice to give you the best advantage of discounts available for multiple weeks and/or fractional weeks of your stay.
As is sometimes the case, if you don't have the exact dates of your additional guests at the time of reserving Storrhaven, just book with the guest(s) stay you know, and we can make arrangements for the additional guest(s) stay closer to the start of your stay -- just email us a note when you know their times of joining you, and we can handle this right up to (and even after) the start of your stay.
If you have additional guests arriving after you initial start of your stay, these guest are at a rate of $75/guest/week (or fraction of a week), and if staying longer than 7 nights, additional nights are prorated at the rate of 1/7th of $75/night. Our addition guest rate is one of the lowest in the Abaco region.
Discount from the one week rate for multiple weeks of your stay: 2 weeks: $100/week discount for each of the two weeks; 3 weeks: $150/week discount for each of the three weeks; 4 or more weeks: $250/week discount for each week of your stay. Any partial weeks are prorated (see below example). Note: multiple week discount is not displayed in FlipKey's pricing. Just submit your booking request, and before receiving your invoice, we will automatically discount the appropriate multiple week discount and inform you of the final discounted rate on the invoice we send you. The term "weeks" mean 7 nights of your stay.
Also note, that partial weeks beyond the first week are prorated at 1/7th of the weekly rate. For example, if you book for 2 weeks and 2 additional nights (16 nights), your rate would be: $1725 - $100/week discount = $1625 per week, then $1625 / 7 = $232 per extra night, so, for 16 nights, the weekly discounted rate of $1625 x 2 weeks = $3250 + (2 nights x $232) = $3714 for 16 nights. another example: If a 4th guest arrives and stays for 8 nights during the 16 night rental, that 4th guest rate would be $75/week (for the first 7 nights), then 1/7th of $75 for the 8th night = $75 + $10 = $85 for that 4th guest for their 8 nights stay with you.
