Pleasure working with Hope Town Hideaways
Posted on: 7/8/2019

This was our 5th summer coming to the Bahamas and our first summer
coming to Elbow Cay. Hope Town Hideaway was a pleasure to work with.
They helped us find the perfect rental house for our family and made
the check in process just wonderfully smooth. Hope Town Hideaway
provided great island activity information and helpful tips for our
stay. Communication before arrival, during, and after was incredible.
We highly recommend renting from Hope Town Hideaway.

The house was very comfortable enjoyable!

Posted on: 7/2/2014

Donald Seas is an excellent property partly because of the care that Donny and Patricia add. This is the third year we have enjoyed the property and it has always been clean and well stocked. There are always a few little thing with any rental but our caretaker is there immediately and everything is taken care of. Would recommend Donald Seas and Hope Town Hideaways to anyone.


 Thank you for taking the time to leave a great review. We are happy you enjoyed your stay at Donald Seas  and do hope to see you again soon.

Breathtaking Home!
Posted on: 2/5/2014

 Its always one of life's greatest gifts when you can receive the opportunity to be amongst friends and family in such a glorious home with a spectacular view. "It's breathtaking". I tip my hat and bow to the Lt. Col:s vision, drive, and determination to establish such a monument as this! The Abacos is the place to be! "Donald Seas" is one of my favorites!!

The Very Happy Guests with Donald Seas!
Posted on: 2/5/2014

 We had a wonderful time here in the Abacos. This was my first time here in The Bahamas! We've really enjoyed our stay here! The view is very pretty! Thank you for letting us stay here! This is one trip I will always cherish!

Thanks for Sharing Such a Memorable Home!
Posted on: 2/5/2014

 We had the best trip here in Elbow Cay! Donald Seas is a great house, what a beautiful view! Our whole extended family- 16 of us stayed here and in Hummingbird Hill next door. We loved every minute of it. The boating trips to Pete's Pub at Little Harbour, Nippers at Guana Cay, Green Turtle Cay Club, Cracker P's and Tahiti Beach. White Sound is a beautiful spot and so convenient to Abaco Inn and Seaspray. We had friends staying at Paradise, Loyalist and Conched Out too. Thank you for sharing your house. What blessed memories!

Great Idea for Paradise!
Posted on: 2/5/2014

 We have landed in Marnies Landing and got some great ideas of home building from Donald Seas. We hope to build in the next couple of years and enjoy the Dream Donald had as well! What a great place for Paradise!

Our Favorite Place in Abaco, The Donald Seas
Posted on: 2/5/2014

 We have returned to our favorite place in Abaco- The Donald Seas. This time we're celebrating our daughter's graduation with 3 of her friends. Favorite parts of the trip included snorkeling at Sandy Cay and Mermaid's Reef. We loved Tahiti Beach! It was fun watching the sea plane come and go from Abaco Inn from the Crow's Nest. After all day out on the boat, we relaxed with puzzles (Sudoku and jigsaw) and good books (The Mermaid Chain by Sue Monk Kidd). Mac was the skipper of the boat, navigator, and grill master everytime we hear "No shirt, no shoes, no problem"...We love The Donald Seas and definately plan to come back! 

One of Our Favorite Houses!!
Posted on: 2/5/2014

 Great house with a terrific view! This is our 7th year staying in Hope Town and we just love the porch view of White Sound; love the location too! We've had another fantastic stay!! We Love Donald Seas, its probably one of our fav houses!!

What an Outstanding Vacation!
Posted on: 2/5/2014

 Everything could'nt have been better. The view, the house, the dock are well perfect. The weather was great, the waves were good and the island is always special. We will look forward to returning next time with the boat. Thanks!

Most Gratifying Engagement at Donald Seas!
Posted on: 2/5/2014

 We will cherish our time at Donald Seas. It's the place where we took one of our life's biggest steps. We got engaged! It was on the dock after a lovely dinner at Abaco Inn and fishing in the dark was suggested and a mood ring was reeled in. Then the real proposal followed! So ofcourse Donald Seas will always mean so much to us. We are hoping to come back in a year as a married couple. The house, the view, the golfcart, the people, the engagement, everything was absolutely perfect. Thanks so much!

Donald Seas- The Heart of Home!
Posted on: 2/5/2014

 We loved our 2 weeks at your lovely home, Donald Seas! Our son proposed to the love of his life and they plan a December wedding. Donald Seas will always have a special place in all of our hearts. You have a fantastic location- the view, the wonderful boat dock and the lovely, well stocked and well maintained house! We loved every minute of our vacation. We hope a plan to return again next year at the same time. White Sound is our favorite spot on Elbow Cay!

We Love Elbow Cay and Donald Seas- PARADISE AWAITS!
Posted on: 2/5/2014

 This is our first of many visits to Donald Seas! We stayed on Treasure Cay 5 years ago and will not wait 5 years in the future. We love Elbow Cay and Donald Seas so much more than Treasure. This week the weather has been perfect (70-80 degrees), almost no humidity and the good breeze has kept away the black flies and bugs. The wind has come out of every direction changing the seas and making boating less desirable, but who cares when you have this view.....we do not need to leave the house for paradise. We visited Little Harbour and Pete's Pub with some great snorkeling on the way at Sandy Cay. We saw a ray "as big as Manhattan", every beautiful fish you can see including a flying sailfish! Not to mention the nurse shark! We did not make it to Nippers this visit, but made up for it with a great day of specialty drinks, snorkeling and body surfing at On Da Beach! There were a total of nine in our group with the Lacy's staying at Donald Seas and our friends at Elbow Room over on the ocean. It definately added to the fun taking 2 boats out and always someone in the group ready to go fishing or snorkeling! There was a wedding Thursday night with a great fireworks show. We enjoyed dinner at Abaco Inn and breakfast at Seaspray Marina. The rum drinks were great everywhere and we even mastered our home versions. Every morning mama chicken and her ten chicks came up to the house and cleared us out of bread and cereal; we loved their a.m visits. Friday a.m the sound was flat and we could see parrot fish and even baracudas around the sunken boat; what a joy to have in your front yard! Until next be continued.....

Lowry & Mogel
Fantastic Trip and great home!
Posted on: 2/5/2014

 The Lowry's and Mogels enjoyed our week at this lovely island retreat. Wonderfully decorated with most amenities available. Loved having the baot right at the house and enjoyed seeing some lovely fish right here off the dock; they don't like bread but loved left over snapper! Enjoyed dining at Abaco Inn, Boathouse at Seaspray, Cracker P's and Hope Town Harbour Lodge; pizza from Boathouse was quite good and pigged out on Vernon's homemade bread and pies! Did the Sunday tradition at Nippers but ate their yummy burgers instead of pig roast. Snorkeled from your beach too, but fantastic snorkeling at Fowel Cay (30 mins by boat) and Sandy Cay (20 mins)- need to hit Sandy Cay when waters are calm. Tried to find Witch Point snorkeling but all we saw was a few entirely coral fans....maybe we were'nt in the right place. Hope to return next year!

Most Adventuristic moment in Elbow Cay with such a lovely home.
Posted on: 2/5/2014

 The Ballard family returned to Elbow Cay for our annual vacation. We typically come for 3 weeks with our busy schedules at home we had to shorten this trip. First time in Donald Seas....a very nice spot. We hit all the major stops- Tillo Banks, Tahiti Beach, Man-O-War, the island with the  millions of periwinkles, the lighthouse, etc. Found great seabiscuits and seaurchin shells off Lubbers, we also saw a few starfish. We will return and quite possibly back to your lovely home. This makes a great place to bring family together, relax and rejuvenate. Abaco Inn tuna appetizer is the absolute best thing on the menu on this entire island. We enjoyed it several evenings as the children swam in the pool. The best drink on the island is 'Turtle Chaser' (think that's the name) at On Da Beach. Seaspray makes great seafood pizza. We also visited Cracker P's, Munchies for icecream and a family service at St. James Methodist Church where the children are treated so well. The best deal on the island is the Wyannie Malone Museum which is $5 for an entire family to go through the exhibit; interesting facts and pleasant volunteers. We'll be back through this winter sometime. Thank you for making your home available to us and all those seeking this island experience.

Second visit to Donald Seas! Love The Bahamas!
Posted on: 2/5/2014

 This is our second visit to Donald Seas. We love the house being in White Sound is better than any part of the island in our opinions. We've been coming to The Bahamas for 20+ years and we hope to make it 20+ more!

An Admirable Stay!
Posted on: 2/5/2014

 We joined our friends there to the Abacos and really appreciated this trip and their company. We had an awesome time, enjoyed this beautiful home and its incredible views. People around town are real friendly and the golf cart was perfect for getting around town. Its our first time here and hopefully not our last.

Thanks for sharing your home!

A perfect experience.

Excellent. Everything worked, clean, caretakers excellent, well stocked. Couldn't ask for more.

Another great week at Donald Seas!
Posted on: 5/19/2013
Tricia and Donnie welcomed us to Donald Seas as expected. They both do a great job ensuring that everything in the house is in working order. The new living room furniture is very nice and comfortable. The Vontage phone comes in handy checking on family and business at home. The dredged channel in front of the dock is very much appreciated. At low tide, there is no problem getting the boat in or out of White Sound now like there was previously. We have rented Donald Seas for five or six years in a row and will continue to do so. It is in a great location for everything that we like to do, yet off the main road so traffic noise is minimized.

Great trip
Posted on: 5/6/2013

Everything we had was Great. Cannot think of anything that was not great. We thank you for making our trip wnderful. Hope to get back soon. Thanks Lester


 Thanks for the review and we look forward to your next visit.

Wonderful property
Posted on: 6/21/2012
Donald Seas was a beautiful home, and we had a great time. The view is spectacular, and the home was well-equipped to make our stay great. Thanks to Patricia and Donnie for their help!

Great house in White Sound.
Posted on: 6/9/2012
Trisha and Donnie did a great job answering our questions about the house and dock. We are very glad that a channel is being dredged in front of the dock. In the past, it has been impossible to leave or get to the dock by boat at low tide. The fact that the house has wifi and a vonage phone is a plus. The generator is another big plus.

Posted on: 5/7/2012

We absolutely love staying at Donald Seas. The beauty of Elbow Cay is certainly the landscape and especially the Sea of Abaco and the views from the wrap around porch are spectacular at Donald Seas! We spend most of our time outdoors. We utilized the gas grill and the outdoor barbeque. We enjoyed the indoor space, as well. We did have issues with the fans. We were able to get the outside music to work, but weren't sure if it was also supposed to work inside at the same time. But we certainly enjoyed the outside music. This is our third stay at the house and the issues were small and we did not call the caretakers about it because we were fine with it. We would definitely stay there again. Thank you so much!
