    We thoroughly enjoyed our stay at Green Shutters! Home is beautifully decorated and had everything we needed to enjoy a week in the Abacos! We loved the large living area and kitchen, equipped with everything we needed to cook at home. Beds and linens were very comfortable and appreciated the beach towels that were provided. The home is newly remodeled with a beautiful master bath. My husband and kids really enjoyed the outdoor shower with hot water. I don’t think they showered inside all week! We also liked having a half bath off living area. We also enjoyed the large front porch and rooftop sitting area, especially at sundown. Our kids, 5 and 8 years old, enjoyed exploring all around Green Shutters. The beach is literally steps from the house and we enjoyed snorkeling the reefs right off the beach. Sip Sip Wine Bar is right next door and serves delicious cocktails and breakfast, lunch and dinner. Right down the street is a wonderful coffee shop with homemade pastries. Also, you have to buy fresh bread and cinnamon rolls at Vernon’s Grocery. Across the street is a great straw market with lots of handmade Bahamian treasures. The lady that makes it all was there and was so kind and helpful to my children. Beside Straw Market is Munchies. We enjoyed their hamburgers and ice cream – Hopetown’s version of MacDonald’s but with everything homemade! This was our third trip to Elbow Cay and Green Shutters is our favorite so far – we will be back!!

    Perfect vacation!

    We booked Green Shutters for our family holiday vacation for our wedding and feel we had the ideal home and location to meet all of our needs. The layout in Green Shutters can facilitate cozy as well as entertaining, whatever the flavour happens to be. The central location in Hope Town made it a perfect meeting place for our group. The ocean beach just over the hill in front of Green Shutters became our location for our wedding, too! Add in the convenience of Sip-Sip next door and it couldn’t be beat! The home was inviting, relaxing and chalk full of all amenities. Response time for any requests was very prompt and complete. I would recommend Green Shutters for the perfect family vacation!

    We had the best vacation ever, staying at Green Shutters! It was perfect of our family of four. Very clean and comfortable. The furnishings and linens were all top-notch and the bathroom was recently upgraded. The kitchen was fully stocked and the open design made it fun to cook dinner and spend the evening together. We especially enjoyed watching the sunset every evening from the rooftop deck!

    It is centrally located, so it’s a short walk to restaurants and shops, as well as the grocery store, bakery and public dock. It’s directly across from a memorial garden and the beach, so there’s always a cool breeze on the porch — the perfect place to relax in the afternoon after a day on the water or at the beach.

    We look forward to returning again soon!

    We had a great stay at Green Shutters. This was our 3rd time here in Hope Town and Green Shutters was by far our favorite place to stay. We can’t wait to come back next year. We loved the beach access and the roofs view!

    Blissful to be back in Hope Town 7 years after our first visit. Green Shutters welcomed us with its friendly porch, spacious rooms and wonderful selection of books… we thoroughly enjoyed reading tales of the island & its characters. Our girls spent hours playing in the warm, clear water and we even caught a bonefish from the shore. The location is ideal- in town, but somehow feels quiet and secluded.
    Thank you for a memorable holiday.

    We loved the house, location and views and so well furnished and appointed. We loved staying in the little cottage, cozy and comfortable. We loved dining on the front porch and walking to town beaches, boats and restaurants. This was our first visit to the Bahamas and loved the gentleness of the folks, the friendliness, the food and the service. We want to return and explore more of the Abacos!

    Our family had a spectacular time at our first (and not last) trip to the Abacos’ Your house was just a home away from home. We really appreciated how well appointed the house was, as we even found a hammer to crack our stone crab claws 🙂 The location was especially awesome for first timers exploring the island. Our boys, 12 and 13, could walk places without us and we were perfectly comfortable. Thank you so much! We will be back in 357 days!!

    Lots of Love!

    We had a fabulous time & fabulous weather. Loved the house- very spacious and warm!

    Stingrays, sea turtles, dolphin family, nurse sharks, barracudas- nature at it’s best!

  10. Becky & Chris says:

    We had an amazing time! Your house became a home to us for a week.
    Lots of sleeping! Lots of walking on the beach! Lots of laughter and shell seeking!
    We’ll be back- missing the island already!
