Overview

About the property

6 Bedrooms and 80 foot covered deck with Amazing view of the Sea of Abaco

Sea Life is a spectacular 6 bedroom home that sits on the idyllic west shoreline of the north end of Elbow Cay, Abaco, Bahamas. It is one of the few homes on Elbow Cay that enjoys beautiful beach frontage on the Sea of Abaco, with docking access just two lots away. With four King bedrooms and two bunk rooms with a total of 12 bunks, Sea Life will accommodate several families seamlessly.

Newly renovated and tastefully decorated, Sea Life offers a blissful and tranquil view of the Sea of Abaco. This spacious home combines a modern design, open floor plan, and classic beach decor to create an atmosphere of warmth and comfort, with lots of great quiet spots for reading. Oversized windows throughout allow both sunlight and sea breezes to reach every corner of the house. Relax on the 80 foot covered deck, or watch the sunset while you sip your drink at the 8 stool uncovered bar. The fully equipped kitchen makes cooking a pleasure and is great for entertaining.

Located on the main floor, the King master bedroom includes a large ensuite bathroom and the view will take your breath away. There are three more King bedrooms upstairs, one is ensuite, the other two share a bath. There is a large game room with fabulous views from the sliding doors straight out to the beach. There are two large bunk rooms on this level, one with 8 bunks, the other with 4 bunks. The bunks, made by a company who makes bunks for college dorms, are suitable for adults up to 240 pounds.

The beautiful, calm beach at the bottom of the stairs is perfect for sunning, strolling, swimming, snorkeling, floating, paddle boarding, kayaking and boating. The man made reef 200 yards from the beach is a perfect spearfishing spot for spiny lobster, grouper, hogfish, and mutton snapper. The Atlantic Ocean is a mere 300 yards away from the front door making it the perfect location for long walks on the beach, surfing the waves or swimming in the crystal clear water.

Experience the unparalleled serenity of Sea Life for yourself!

Best House Setting for a Large Group

  • 5 of 5

We had the pleasure of staying in Sea Life this summer. There were ten of us with lots of extra space! This house is perfect for several families to share. Four bedrooms have kings so no one shares a queen bed! The 12 downstairs bunks are very sturdy and XL for taller kids (6' +) They enjoyed the television (brought their own game systems) and ping pong table.

The setting is the most SUPERB we have ever had on Elbow Cay. We have rented other large homes...WaterMark, Bali Hai (not for rent now), Paradise, Barefoot Beach (our first). The house is located on very calm, clear water. We LOVED floating on the rafts watching the sunset. We also enjoyed the 2 paddleboards. I agree with the other reviewers about the oceanside. Our older kids will spear fish and lobster on that side, but it is not conducive for a leisurely swim. This location is PERFECT for younger children.

We drive our own boats from Florida and boat 1-3 times a day. Fishing, Island hopping, going to dinner at Seaspray, Firefly or Lubbers Quarters. There is a public dock very close to Sea Life. It accommodated our 37' and 32' boats. We never had a problem finding a space. GOOD TO KNOW: There have been increasing thefts of outboard engines (or the whole boat) in the Bahamas - including Elbow. If you dock your own boat in a public space, have a lock for outboard engines. We prefer to have our boats at a secure marina - inboard and outboard, but it isn't always convenient. This trip, we rented slips at Hopetown Harbour Marina. It was about an hour round trip there and back to get a boat and drive it to the north end dock. Two people - every morning and evening - not convenient. We prefer to have a dock at the rental house, but it isn't totally necessary IF we can reach the marina by golf cart. It is more convenient for us to rent a house with a dock (like White Sound) or stay on the Central or South part.

This is the second house we have stayed in the North end. HOPE TOWN rules: You cannot drive a golf cart from the north through town to the south. The restaurants WILL PICK UP and DROP OFF at the center, but you cannot drive yourself. The house has many bicycles but we did not use due to the summer heat.

HOUSE - Immaculately clean, beautifully decorated, nice linens

SETTING - Best on all of ELBOW - the calm water steps away is glorious.

LOCATION - not our favorite for boats, grocery or getting to restaurants. But is secluded and quiet.

WORTH THE MONEY

The perfect house on the perfect island

  • 5 of 5

We’ve stayed in luxury properties all over the world, and in numerous houses on Hopetown, and this is by far our favorite.

To begin with, the location cannot be beat. Sea Life is on the lee side of the island, overlooking the Candy striped Lighthouse, and Marsh Harbor. My kids loved that they could stumble out of bed and walk right down to the water – and the water is calm. We’ve stayed in houses on the ocean side, but it’s so rough over there, and I’m afraid to let my children swim when it’s rough. Being on the lee side is much nicer, and the ocean it’s a short walk across the road. The best of both worlds!

The owners of this house clearly thought of everything. It’s luxurious and comfy at the same time. The rooms are beautifully appointed, and there is space for us all to spread out. My children loved the bunk rooms and the ping-pong table, and I loved sitting on the deck with a drink in hand, just watching the water. For those who like to cook (like me) the kitchen has everything. Many rental houses skimp on the kitchen, but not here. There hasn’t been one time when I wanted something that wasn’t supplied. I can easily see getting a few families together for a holiday. The four master bedrooms and bunk rooms offer plenty of accommodation, and the open plan lends itself to large groups.

We took the bikes into town a few times, which is a surprisingly short ride, and a nice one at that. We had privacy, but we’re not so far away, like on the south end of the island, that we can ride into town for a quick shopping trip or meal.

And I have to thank the owner Karina for telling us about ‘floating’ at the end of the day. The children and I get on a ‘noodle’ and float in the water outside the house at sunset – and it’s heaven.

I can’t say enough good things about Sea Life and the experience. It's truly magical.

A Time with Friends and Family at Sea Life

  • 5 of 5

Sea Life lends itself to multi-family reunions. Downstairs is a kids oasis with bunks, games and a big TV. The upstairs suites give parents privacy and comes with beautiful views. The main floor has a gourmet kitchen, open living spaces that leads to and amazing outside deck. We had a 5 family reunion at Sea Life and I could not have asked for a better house.

The house had all the fun toys needed. The beach was right off the deck so the kids could play in the water and we could keep an eye on them. There was a lot of fun ocean life with every step. The house was on the north part of the island but you had easy access to the rest of the island. I though the bikes were the best way to get around.

Owner's Response: We are happy you enjoyed your Sea Life vacation and hope your group will return. It seems that what we envisioned for the kids "oasis" downstairs with direct access to the beach worked well for your group, giving both kids and adults their separate spaces to gather. We do enjoy our Sea Life kitchen as well and love that it can accommodate multiple cooks and spectators! We appreciate the thumbs up review, thank you.

Sea Life - what a special place

  • 5 of 5

We spent a week at Sea Life - our group was a total of 17 people with a mix of adults and kids. Sea Life provided a special experience for everyone! For the adults who wanted to relax, we had the crystal blue water and soft white sand a step from the house. We read our books or just laid on the sand. With a kayak and paddle board under the porch, those who wanted a bit more adventure headed out into the water for some fun, exercise and site seeing. In addition, there was snorkeling right in front of us where we saw conch, star fish and a little further out were the beautiful Caribbean fish and lobsters.

As a big group, were had more than enough room. The coupes had their own bedrooms and the kids piled into the lower level and enjoyed their bunk beds, the ping pong table and the large screen TV. We all enjoyed watching sunsets right out the back and cooked our dinners on the grill on the porch.

Since Sea Life is on the north end of the island, we enjoyed the quiet, remote atmosphere. The golf cart provided quick access to town, but most of us enjoyed the nice walk.

This was a great get-a-way for our group and we look forward to going back!
