The Great Escape is a fabulous three bedroom beach house, in a private setting in the heart of Hope Town. Minutes from the ferry dock and public dock where boats can be moored (Lower Dock). Steps from the glorious Atlantic Beach which runs all along the back of Hope Town and up to the North End. Moments from all grocery stores, restaurants, art galleries and shops in Hope Town. Buy your fresh bread at Vernon's, your take-away lobster dinner from Munchies and get your coffee from the Coffee House - all on the same block as the Great Escape. Open and light inside, with sea breezes and the sounds of ocean waves flowing through the house. A/C and ceiling fans for the warm summers. Large outdoor decking for daytime relaxing on outside sofas, chairs and hammocks.
