Description from owner

Description

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 just 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. We have rebuilt our dock and can accommodate boats up to 24 feet. Sometimes stern anchoring may be necessary

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.

“Cottage in Paradise”

The cottage is perfectly located on the oceanfront (behind a dune so don't expect direct views), and within walking distance to Abaco Inn. For a low key, extra-long weekend away it was everythin… More

“Not as nice as on photos”

Reviewed 18 Jan 2014

The Cottage is not as nice as on photos. Main difference is that it does not have sea view due to sand dune right in front of Cottage. So sitting on deck we saw the back of the dune. I know that it is… More

Response from the owner Sabine, I am glad you enjoyed your stay. I also appreciate you sharing some of your concerns, I am sorry some things were not as you had pictured. I was happy to bring you the deck chairs requested within a couple hours of your arrival. They had been put away for hurricane season and I am sorry they were not put back out prior to your arrival. I did replace the door latch and handle with a new one, I apologize for any inconvenience during your stay. We always try to make improvements to keep up with the corrosive but beautiful environment. I did not realize that someone might picture that there was an ocean view while sitting on the deck - thank you for pointing it out so that it is clear for future guests. However, if the ocean view from the deck is important "Top Deck" (our cottage next door) is higher, has an ocean view from that deck and is also available for rental. I know that you enjoyed the location and I think that if you compare other properties you will find it is one of the best values on the island. In fact, a guest who stayed in Sea Oats shortly after your visit shared the following on another rental website: "Great location, and great value (while visiting, we learned that similar rooms close by were twice the price of the cottage) I would definitely visit again!" Sabine, I sincerely hope that when you visit in the future you will check back with us to compare prices and amenities of other rental options with Sea Oats or Top Deck Cottage to enjoy the location, clean accommodations, and one of the best values on Elbow Cay. -Jon
