1B/2B (1 Double Futon in Main, 1Q in Cottage) Island style cottage just south of the Hope Town settlement overlooking the ocean. The cottage is located high on a ridge with beautiful Bahamian foliage, making it very private and secluded. The location offers beautiful views of the beachfront, reef and Atlantic Ocean. On the backside is the main island road, allowing easy access to the whole island via a rented golf cart. Across the road the property has a private dock with access to the harbor, perfect for a rental boat to explore the other islands. The main house is a small efficiency cottage with A/C and a futon style double bed, a fully equipped kitchen with stainless steel appliances and a bathroom. A separate traditional Bahamian sleep house has a portable a/c unit as well as large screened windows on all sides allowing for the ocean breezes on those cool evenings. In the sleep house, there is a queen size bed and full bathroom. Down a short barefoot path from the main cottage is a private sundeck with remote beach access below. The sundeck is equipped with Adirondack furniture and is a wonderful place to spend late afternoons with a glass of wine or early mornings watching the sunrise, listening to the palm trees and ocean waves. Max boat size 26'.

Another Beautiful Bahamian Out Island Cottage
Posted on: 3/2/2018

 Helene & I are northern city people. Sea Loft far exceeds our fantasies of what a Bahamian Out Island cottage & experience is. It is secluded, peaceful, and the natural beauty is almost overwhelming. Whether being up at dawn to catch the sunrise, or simply sitting at the stairway to the beach listening to the surf, one is transported to another time. The grounds are a stunning tropical landscape that draws one into an incredible realm of palm trees, mangroves, and soft sand. And a gorgeous Atlantic beach is a few feet down the sand dune.

We highly recommend a golf cart rental. While not a long distance from the Settlement, the cart does help with getting groceries and other goods back to the cottage. Plus, the entire south end of Elbow Cay is now at your fingertips.

Hope Town Hideaways is possibly the easiest group to do business with we have come across. Caretakers Hilary & Shawn Thompson, Samara Albury, and the rest of the staff, do everything in their power to make the experience one of comfort and ease of transition to the island life style.

We cannot recommend Sea Loft and Hope Town Hideaways highly enough.

A Great Stay at Sea Loft
Posted on: 1/5/2016

 My husband and I had a wonderful stay.  Everything was great and low key. Hilary was sweet as can be and very helpful on our arrival.  It was nice to arrive to fresh flowers.

Miss It
Posted on: 2/21/2015
I miss this place: The sun deck on the bluff and the amazing panorama of sand and varying hues of blue ocean and sky during the day, and masses of stars at night; The rustic main house perfect for napping and being lazy; The sleep house with the breeze and sound of the surf that lulls you into a coma. Perfect place to stay. Thank you!

Sea loft is a private retreat
Posted on: 8/23/2014

We stayed here for a week on our honeymoon. Very private property. Sun deck has great views. Beach was swimable and very few people. Reefs to snorkel to your right and left. However beach access was steep without stairs. Quaint main house with good a/c, kitchen, dining room table and living area. Deck is fantastic for grilling on BBQ. We grilled local fish picked up at the "food store" otw to to white sound. The girls there are super helpful. Has private dock down below which is perfect for your rental boat from Cats Paw, Harold is the man. Some of the most beautiful beaches and water on earth. James the caretaker was super helpful too! -Matt & Liz

What a View
Posted on: 3/11/2014

Spectacular view and super location. Ocean on one side and boat dock on the other. Easy walk to town on the beach or the road. James Albury (caretaker) was the best. Very attentive and always helpful. Made one feel at home.

We had a great time on Elbow Cay, Abacos as usual. Hopetown Hideaways makes the trip very easy and are pleasant to work with. The ferry captain notified them on our way over from Marsh Harbor and James the caretaker was waiting at the dock for us. He got us situated in the house, showed us were everything was and made sure we were all set. We touched base before checkout, but took our golf cart to the ferry that day so he didn't need to meet us. Had a great trip, this is our third time staying with HH and will continue to do so.

Island experience

Cute cottage. Great location on beach. We really enjoyed the cottage. It was perfect for us. True island experience.

Fantastic Stay!
Posted on: 12/11/2011

Staying at the Sea Loft was wonderful! It was very clean, and the caretaker was very helpful and gracious.


 Dear Donna,

James is a favorite caretaker and Sea Loft is truly a Bahamian beach house - what a wonderful beach and the boat in the creek just at the bottom of the steps - such a perfect "both worlds" vacation home.

We look forward to welcoming you back on the island very soon!
