To get a true feeling for what this house is really all about, with ocean on one side and White Sound on the other, take a look at the video taken from the top deck
Our house Seascape here in the Bahamas is absolutely on the ocean with adjoining frontage and a private dock in White Sound Bay on Elbow Cay Island. A two bedroom, two bath, air-conditioned beachfront cottage that makes for an outstanding 'out island' experience. Situated on a ridge, Seascape offers the best of both worlds: a breathtaking view of Sea of Abaco from its spacious rear deck and the roar of the ocean waves on the front. This dual frontage is unique on the island and only shared with two other houses. Seascape's floor plan includes two bedrooms, two full baths, and a large sofa to sleep two additional people in the living area. Air conditioning is provided for the two bedrooms to insure your comfort on hot summer evenings. The house comes complete with cooking utensils, place settings for six, glasses, bed linens and towels. You have your own private dock directly at the rear of the property instead of a long walk. High speed internet and satellite TV are furnished.
Seascape is located on White Sound Bay on Elbow Cay Island. This is a small island approximately 190 miles east of Florida. Temperatures average in the 70's in the winter and the 80's in the summer. The ocean breezes flow through the rooms making it comfortable year round. White Sound is less than a ten minute boat ride from the quaint settlement of Hope Town and its famous 'candy-striped' lighthouse. The inhabitants of Hope Town are descendants of the Loyalists who fled the Carolinas during the Revolutionary War. They still speak the dialect of their ancestors. Hope Town is nestled in a picturesque harbor and the vibrant reds, pinks, and yellows of the native hibiscus and bougainvillaea surround the Cape Cod style homes.
Transportation around the island is mostly by boat or on foot. Bicycles and golf carts can be rented by the day or week. You will find Hope Town to be quite charming. There are several small grocery stores, a liquor store, bakery, straw shop, gift shops, a museum, and churches. There are a number of island restaurants, some of which are Sea Spray, Captain Jack's, The Harbor's Edge and the Abaco Inn. These restaurants serve delicious grouper, conch, lobster (in season) and other excellent native dishes. Shorts are all that is required for formal dress.
We have installed a Sirius Satellite radio receiver in the house. After you return home I think you will find yourself missing commercial free programming. This certainly solved my frustration with radio reception in the islands. I also arranged to have an Wireless internet connection for a laptop computer. Their service is much faster than my own at home via two way satellite and much in line with cable. With this location goes the problems of salt corrosion on every thing that has any metal parts. In our effort to assure reliability of all the many mechanical devices that are subjected to this salt environment we have on hand extra AC units, refrigerator and a water heater in storage. Paste these coordinates into Google Earth and it will put a pin on the roof of the house
