“Leapin lizards”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 10, 2013

We just returned from a week stay at Leapin Lizards rental in Hopetown Elbow Cay. it is truly the most beautiful place on earth. The home was immaculate, beach and pool perfect. We had 6 adults and 6 children..ages 2 to 18. Lots of snorkeling and beach time. Perfect vacation if you love quiet and relaxation! can not wait to return to this beautiful place. Nebraska is awesome but I wish I could pick this place up and move it here!

“Hope Town is a charming town”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 4, 2013

Go to the museum first and check their hours. Shop at Vernon's Grocery (ask someone for directions) and buy their Key Lime pie. Stroll the town. Swim in the ocean behind the Hope Town hotel. The only thing I didn't like were the flies when we ate at outdoor restaurants.

“Leapin Lizards and Hopetown”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 16, 2013

Just came back from a week long stay at Leapin Lizards in Hopetown. I traveled with six adults and eight teenagers. We absolutely loved the charming Hopetown. We rented three golf carts and had easy transportation everywhere on the island. The house had the perfect layout with the beach cottage and the main house. We enjoyed the pool, hot tub, and the hammocks. The house with clean, beautifully decorated, and well stocked. There was plenty of room for everyone. This is one of the most beautiful islands! I will definitely be visiting again.

“Truly THE most beautiful Island in the Abacos”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 21, 2013

The beach is stunning & begs you to take a long walk searching for sea glass, shells or sea beans. The ocean waters are of a rare turquoise clarity meeting powder sugar sands. Restaurants, a new coffee shop, also a new wine bar, baked bread delights by Vernon, the iconic candy-striped lighthouse, charming little pathways with names like Lover's Lane, confectionary-colored cottages ALL make Elbow Cay & it's settlement of Hope Town a MUST visit.

“Elbow Cay”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 17, 2013

No crime, charming, hard to get to. No cars are allowed in town and everything is very well maintained, and a lovely little harbor.
