Wow! Just wow! We found our own little slice of paradise at Abaco Bliss! Just a quick walk from the ferry and on the edge of Hopetown Village, this beautiful home sits atop a hill with jaw dropping views. The home, especially the extensive pool deck and Gazebo area is absolutely stunning! The beauty of this property was carried indoors not only in the well appointed, airy beach decor but in the thoughtfulness put into the space by the owners. It was abundantly clear this home was designed with families and travelers in mind, making it easy to settle in and relax almost immediately!
The indoor/outdoor living areas provide plenty of room for families or large groups to relax, but there are also spots to have quiet moments. We especially loved the two chairs facing the pool where we had coffee and mimosas daily!
The kitchen was perhaps the best stocked of any rental home we have ever visited. It is well stocked with dishes, glasses, cutlery, utensils and spices. If you don’t want to eat out, no problem! They have truly thought of everything and Vernon’s grocery is a short 5 minute walk from the house. Prefer not to cook? Also no problem, there are three excellent restaurants within a short distance.
The bedrooms were beautifully appointed with high end bedding and comfy beds. Making it nearly impossible to rise in the mornings. There are plenty of rooms with different sleeping arrangements! Enough for everyone to have their own space!
There were electric bikes available for use as well as ample beach chairs, floats for the pool, and beach towels. We had a blast exploring the island on the bikes and they were incredibly handy for a quick trip to Munchies for ice cream (an absolute must) or to Vernons for groceries. The location of this home is the cherry on top! Close to town, a nearly private beach just steps from your pool deck and so very close to the ferry.
Kevin was an excellent host! He always responded quickly to our questions both before and during travel! We were new to Elbow Cay, but he made sure we were armed with all the island secrets to make our trip a success! We were provided with information on ferry schedules, restaurants, rentals for boating and golf carts, and more! He truly was a pleasure to work with from start to finish! Thanks Kevin for helping us find our paradise at Abaco Bliss!
We will definitely be back!

Home is bright, open, beautifully decorated, and the best location on Elbow Cay. From the all new, well-appointed kitchen to the ultra-comfortable living area with a beach vibe, it couldn’t have been more perfect. The bedrooms are all spacious and the bedding and linens are perfect after long days on the beach or in the pool. The pool deck and gazebo overlook the best stretch of beach on the island, and the house is a two-minute walk from town. Have been coming to the island for almost 3 decades and this is by far the most incredible home we’ve ever seen. Will be back!!

I was with a group of 6 couples and this house was perfect! With 2 master suites & plenty of additional bathrooms it made it easy for everyone to be ready at the same time. There are a set of bunk bed that the youngest couple stayed in and said they were very comfortable and the room stayed nice and cool which helped them sleep well.
The house itself is impeccably decorated with all the modern comforts and a fully stocked kitchen to allow you to cook without compromise.
Easy access to the beautiful and CLEAN beach was one of my favorite perks.
Being able to collect sea glass while having coffee was amazing.
I highly recommend this house and it's our intent to rebook this again.

A group of 9 of my friends and I rented this stunning property in Elbow Cay for a long weekend. Upon arrival, we were greeted by our extremely helpful and amazing concierge who answered all of our questions and helped us with anything we needed. The house was just as stunning as the pictures, huge outdoor deck/patio, relaxing swimming pool, and right on the beach with immaculate views. The kitchen is fully equipped along with a grill so making food for everyone was very easy. The house was extremely spacious and spotless with more then enough room to fit our group! We were able to rent golf carts which we parked a short walk away from the house which was a huge help when exploring the beautiful island. Everyone on the island was so kind and there were plenty of places to eat, drink, and relax. We all had an absolute amazing time at this property, and we cannot wait to return!! Thank you so much for making our vacation so memorable!!

I can't wait to go back!! Our group of 10 had the most wonderful time staying in Abaco Bliss. From the day we booked the house Kevin responded so quickly to any and all questions and Junior was amazing from the time we arrived to the time we left. I asked the people in my group what they would like me to mention in the review and this is what they said: Beautiful home, secluded beach, beautiful views, private, Junior was amazing, bedding was top notch, ample towels/ linens/ beach chairs and games, awesome decking and pool, unbelievable star gazing, lots of sports in the house to chill and read or hang out with everyone.
We went to a bunch of fun places too, Tahiti beach, On Da beach, Firefly, Capt'n Jacks (epic Karaoke at Capt'n Jacks), and Vernon's (he has a great sense of humor). The only thing I would change is staying a whole week instead of the 5 days we were there. We will be back!!!

Fantastic house, great location, beautiful pool, deck and beach!! We had a great trip with two families. Excellent communication from Kevin and his team. We rented a boat in Marsh Harbor and came over to Elbow. Junior, the home's caretaker, coordinated before our trip, after we landed and when we left the marina. He was waiting for us at the dock and helped us unload and tie up. He also helped arrange golf carts, which we used to ferry us all back to the house. You can also come in on the ferry and the lower public dock is an easy walk to/from the house. Junior gave us a tour of the house and was available for the remainder of the trip for anything we needed. He checked in each day, sometimes multiple times. We also hired his son Eric to captain our boat for a day and show us around. Eric was a great pilot and a fantastic young man that we all enjoyed spending the day with.
The house has been recently renovated and has a full gourmet kitchen and roomy, comfortable area for gathering after a day on the beach or out in the boat. House is very well decorated and stocked. Kids stayed downstairs and loved having their own little haven. One highlight is the back deck and swimming pool. There are lounge chairs and multiple tables to sit, eat, have morning coffee and enjoy the view of the beach. The beach is great and literally down a short set of stairs form the deck. On our trip we had the beach all to ourselves. The house was also well stocked with floats, snorkel gear and other beach stuff. Kids played in the sand and in the sea each day. On the island we enjoyed Vernon's (short walk and great bread and pie!) and Firefly (fresh fish for lunch - golf cart ride or boat). We enjoyed having the boat for island hopping, snorkeling, fishing. One day we caught dolphin (Mahi) and wahoo and enjoyed a fantastic fresh fish dinner at the house (there's a big gas grill too!). Yes, and local beer and cocktails too (there's a great ice maker and blender too).
Five stars. We will be back soon!!
