“Absolute paradise!”
Reviewed June 29, 2015 for a stay in June 2015

We stayed at this great property for 3 nights and wished it had been longer. Gordon is so helpful and a wealth of information. The location of the hotel is ideal, only steps from the pristine Tahiti beach. The electric golf cart included is a bonus as well as the small boat you can rent from him on daily basis. We rented it one day for $50 rate plus gas and was well worth seeing a few restaurants and boat ride. Elbow cay is a magical place full of friendly people and spectacular beaches. My twins are 4 and was perfect vacation for us. Every restaurant is beach front and or has poolside well as great snorkeling and fishing. The roads here are paved so golf cart rides are way smoother than other islands and for some reason there are no Mosquitos here! At green turtle we got eaten alive. Lots of great fresh seafood to eat and so much to do. We went in town for ice cream and shopping. Was easy to get around. I can't wait to go back! This purple house was excellent for us too very comfortable and roomy. Big fenced in front yard we could sit on balcony with a cocktail and watch kids play. We never missed having a pool bc everywhere we went had one and like I said before Tahiti beach is a calm beach steps away. This place is paradise and we can't wait to go back. Gordon returned every email and answered all my questions. He was very kind and accommodating. You will be in good hands here!

“Awesome location and views!”
Reviewed May 22, 2015 for a stay in May 2015

We had a wonderful time on Elbow Cay at Gordon's home. The location was perfect for our family. We have a young child, and there was a nice quiet and scenic beach we just a short walk (100 yards or so) away. The beautiful Atlantic was a short walk away also but a little far for our 3yr olds legs :) The golf cart was a great perk since that is the only way to get around on the island. Gordon was a wealth of knowledge and full of GREAT ideas and suggestions. We had a fabulous time and hope to return to Elbow Cay and see Gordon again soon.

Management Response

I was glad we had both a small life preserver for your young boy (3-1/2 yrs old) as well as a small swim mask and flippers. Also glad he enjoyed playing with the "Ninja Turtle" action figure so much that he found in the toy box, and hope he keeps the special marble that he asked about as a fond memory from his stay as a gift from "Mr. Gordon" (me). Enjoyed the dialogue with your Dad about nautical subjects that he was so thoroughly knowledgable about, too. Glad you enjoyed your stay.

“Really nice place!”
Reviewed April 3, 2015 for a stay in March 2015

We visited Elbow Cay end of Feb - early Mar 2015, and stayed at Gordon's Storrhaven house... Had a great vacation, and really enjoyed the place...
The location is perfect, maybe 100-200 meters (few minutes walk) from Tahiti beach... This is the opposite corner of the island, from Hopetown, which is maybe about 3.5 - 4 miles away... The house is in a very quiet, pretty neighborhood. Tahiti beach is a small beach, but so very charming! It makes for great morning/day walks, and beautiful sunsets...
The house itself has everything one needs, as described. We really did not miss anything. We were fortunate enough not to have bad weather, but there were many games/puzzles/books to keep you entertained... No cable, but there was a DVD player, with a number of mainly cartoons/kids movies on DVD's. There was also a radio, which we listened to fairly frequently. And of course, there was the wireless (or cable) internet available, which was very helpful...
The house was comfortable, had a nice yard and porch overlooking the Abaco sea... so more beautiful sunsets! Kitchen was well equipped, and there really nothing that we missed...
We had free access to an electric golf cart (chargeable overnight), which was very helpful and needed in our daily trips to Hopetown... We didn't take advantage, but Gordon also offered his boat for rental (for a good price - better than what you'd get elsewhere)...
Our host - Gordon - was very helpful, and detailed. He was always a phone call or a 1-2 minutes walk away... and extremely helpful. He did go out of his way to make sure we have a good experience... (He actually picked us up from, and drove us back to Marsh Harbor, in his own boat, saving us time and hassle.) We were free to use his other porch - at the Octagon house, where he was staying - for amazing 360 degree views of the island...
He was a really good and gracious host...
We had a great time there, and hope to return one day;)
