About Don Harrower

I am retired from the corporate custom furniture business and now am a full time private investor. My wife and daughter are in the wholesale fashion industry representing fashion forward European lines. My wife will completely retire in the near future when our daughter is at the stage to take over that business.

Don Harrower purchased this house in 1991

Why Don Harrower chose Hope Town

We were originally attracted to the out islands as my wife's parents built a retirement home next door to our present location. We both fell in love with the Bahamas and have been coming here for over 40 years. We built next door to my in laws when the property came available and would still build here even if we had to do it all over again. It is well situated - perfect sunsets everyday which is important to us, good shoreline for a dock and boating and most important - great location for protection against hurricanes. To be doubly protective, we built a concrete block home that has stood the test of many a hurricane . We finished our home in 1991 and have been constantly upgrading it ever since.

What makes this house unique

We get up every day and look out over those waters and realize how incredibly lucky we are to be able to spend time is this amazing part of the world.

We find it harder to leave this place every year and all the original things that attracted us to the islands , attract us even more each year - the phenomenal natural beauty of the Abacos, those turquoise waters, boating, snorkeling, fishing,

the beaches and of course the local friends we have made. The island has grown up so much over the last 30 years , we do love our food and wine and we are now getting some great restaurants opening and we look forward to some wonderful meals with friends and family for years to come.

A return trip to Paradise!

  • 5 of 5

This was our 3rd trip to the Abacos Islands, I doubt we will ever go to another resort again! We just returned from a 2 week stay at Conched Out on Elbow Cay, a beautiful home owned by Don Harrower. Don is a great host, providing all the information and contacts for everything you would need, or activity you wanted to do. Hopetown, a quaint little town, is nearby, as well as several restaurants and shops. The setting is absolutely perfect, nested into the shoreline with a private dock where we kept our rental boat. We had 5 couples in total, so everyone had their own rooms, with a great room and kitchen area that looked out over the palm tree covered property to the water. The group spent a lot of time at the pool, and cabana area that is built on the edge of hillside over looking the Abaco Bay. The house is well maintained with every amenity you could ask for. My favorite two things were the outdoor shower and the 3rd floor sitting room with awesome 360 degree views. This was the second time staying at Conched Out, and I am sure we will be back again!

If you ever want to experience paradise, you need to stay at conched out on elbow cay. Don and Moria are fantastic owners. The house is fantastic, always being updated. The views are spectacular. It's so great to be able to hang out in the pool and watch the beautiful sunsets. People in elbow cay are so friendly and nice. Sherman and Wilma the caretakers are really accommodating. We were there for 3 weeks and everyone said it was the best place they had ever been. I would recommend this place to everyone. Can't wait to return.

Wonderful property with incredible views and amenities.

  • 5 of 5

Conched Out is my favorite spot in the Abacos. The property is beautiful inside and out, very well maintained, and the owner Don couldn't be nicer. No detail is overlooked. Looking forward to getting back here again.

Perfect Getaway!

  • 5 of 5

Conched Out is the perfect home away from home! Our family has vacationed on Elbow Cay for over 25 years, and we have stayed in many beautiful homes, but Conched Out offered everything we wanted and then some. The grounds are so lush and perfectly maintained. The views are spectacular from inside and outside of the home. The pool is a great size and the covered space is wonderful when you want a break from the sun! The home is very spacious, clean, updated, and the kitchen is very well equipped. The dock is great not only for your boat but for jumping off into the beautiful water! Don is also a joy to work with and made sure we were settled and had everything we needed during our stay. Our family cannot to stay at Conched again!

Great Week June 2017

  • 5 of 5

We just finished our first stay at Conched Out and were very happy with our week there. Don was very responsive and easy to deal with and the house was just as advertised. His caretakers even delivered golf carts to the house at our arrival. We selected the house because it had a number of unique features for the Elbow Cay area. It has a private boat dock where we kept our 31 foot catamaran with plenty of space and no issue with the waves. It has a very large pool for the abacos which is landscaped for complete privacy from the one neighbor next door. It has 5 bedrooms so our group of 5 adults and 5 kids had plenty of space. The pictures are nice but it was really nicer in person. It's centrally located on the south end of Elbow so golf carting or boating to just about everywhere on the island is very easy. Finally, didn't realize the generator was important, but it turned on multiple times the week we were there - and was seemless. We had air conditioning, lighting, hot water, etc. regardless of what anyone else on the island had. Really a great week and rental experience. Thanks Don.

Fabulous island getaway

  • 5 of 5

Conched Out was everything we hoped it would be and then some!! This was our first time renting a house in the Abacos and we needed room for 9 adults, a dock for the boat, and a central location on Elbow Cay. Conched Out was perfect!! The house is lovely and clean and had everything we needed. The views are gorgeous, the pool and deck area is perfect after a day of boating and sun. Don is wonderful to work with and checked in to make sure we were settled and happy. I would give Conched Out 10 stars !! We will be back !!
