About Sharon Kurusis

The Kurusis Family Owners

Sharon Kurusis purchased this house in 1990

Why Sharon Kurusis chose Hope Town

We have owned property on Scotland Cay for over 25 years and have never been able to find anything quite as close to paradise as this beautiful, tranquil Cay. It appeals to old and young alike whether sports enthusiast, fisherman, diver, or someone just seeking a little peaceful R&R.

What makes this house unique

Scotland Cay is 100% private with no access allowed for uninvited guest. If you are looking for peace and quiet the Island and house offer endless opportunities to unwind and relax. If you are looking to add a little excitement there are fishing and diving guides for those who want to venture out further than our private reefs. By boat there are neighboring islands that offer restaurants, stores, and sightseeing if you care to venture in those directions. Easter is always a fun time on Scotland Cay as we start our mornings off with a sunrise service and then enjoy Easter egg hunts. Summer offers the excitement of the annual Regatta as well as the 4th of July festivities. Deep sea fishing is at it's best from the end of April through the end of July with Wahoo, Mahi-Mahi, and Tuna weighing in at the top of the scales some close to 100 lbs. Lobster season runs from August 1st through March 31st and is always a hit with tourist and locals alike.

Great Island, great house!

  • 5 of 5

We stayed at the Lighthouse for the second time over the holidays and the property is better than ever. Kitchen has more than you would expect for a rental property, and the dining space is great. Nice bedrooms and bathrooms too.

Scotland Cay is a unique place with a peaceful atmosphere that is hard to find anywhere else in the Caribbean.
