This beautiful vacation rental 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.
Let me introduce you to Seascape House, a new adventure in island living. Situated on a ridge, Seascape offers the best of both worlds: a breathtaking view of White Sound Bay and the Sea of Abaco from its spacious rear deck and the roar of the ocean waves as seen in this video taken from the top deck and posted on You Tube. This dual frontage is unique on the island and only shared with two other houses. Have a look at a picture of a birds eye view to get a better idea of the area and the location. This page also has information on things to do and how to get there. For a web cam view of White Sound to the rear of Seascape using the web cam at the Abaco Inn fust 300 feet tho the south of Seascape try this link.
Seascape now has a backup generator, not so important in the past but in the last few years it seems the island's power infrastructure has been lacking. Seascape's floor plan includes two bedrooms, two full baths, and in the living room there is a long built in couch eleven feet long and just six inches less in width than a standard twin. 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 also have your own private dock directly at the rear of the property. The large upper deck offers an unsurpassed view of the ocean and the Sea of Abaco.
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 bougavilla 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.
