Interaction with guests
We will make our best effort to make your stay pleasant. We can offer you as much help if you want, or if you prefer, honor a hands-off approach to your stay. With 29 years experience in offering our Bahamas house to guests (227 total rentals that we have personally handled), we feel the service we can provide excels in what you can expect from us. We have had excellent reviews in 224 of our 227 rents (3 bad reviews in 29 years all 3 caused by wind damage), and about 70% of our rentals are returns from previous Storrhaven renters.

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 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...

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...

Additional Rate and Availability Information
We charge NO FlipKey booking fee, no processing fee, no fee for use of your credit card. The breakage deposit is refunded in full 10 days after the end of your stay, sent to you directly by FlipKey, assuming no damage/breakage/loss.
Children under 2 years of age at time of booking are free, i.e., they are not included as a 'guest' when calculating your rental rate.
Base rental rate is for 1-3 guests; additional guests staying with you for your total length of your stay are $10/guest/night for each person above the 3 initial guests. FlipKey provides this calculation automatically when you enter the number of guests staying at the Storrhaven house. We review FlipKey's invoice that they send us, and we (the owners of Storrhaven) will review FlipKey's invoice before it is sent to you and make the appropriate, i.e., lower cost, adjustment to that invoice to give you the best advantage of discounts available for multiple weeks and/or fractional weeks of your stay.

About the neighbourhood
Storrhaven house is located in the private Dorros Cove area of Elbow Cay. This area is the southern most tip of Elbow Cay, about 3 miles from Hope Town. Tahiti Beach (10 second golf cart away from Storrhaven house) is a crescent shaped beach located here, considered one of the 10 best beaches of all of the 700 islands of the Bahamas. The area is quiet, very residential (no businesses), and most houses are on one+ acres of land. There is a private dock located at the northern end of Tahiti Beach for mooring your rental boat with capacity of 32' length, 10' beam, and an approximate 8' draft. Hope Town is a quaint village (2 main roads and several short-connecting cross roads; size: about 500' x 2000'), and here you'll find small shops, 6+ restaurants (most on or over... more
Car not needed
How to get there
Airport: Marsh Harbour, Abaco Island (MHH): 8.0 km
Ferry: Hope Town ferry (also called Albury's Ferry to Hope Town): 4.0 km
FIrst note: make sure your passports are up to date. Passports will take a minimum of 30 days to get once the passport application is done; typically 45 days or longer. There is a ($60 extra) fee to expedite the passport process through the USA government. Passport applications are available in most post offices, or available online -- do a search for "how to obtain a USA passport". No visa's are required to get to the Bahamas. No need to exchange US dollars for Bahamas dollars as all places take US dollars on par (same dollar amount) for the Bahamian dollar -- give a restaurant a $20 US dollar, and your change might be a $5 Bahamian dollar, and two $1 US dollars. Same with coin change, too. VERY NICE feature compared to going to other foreign countries, and no loss of $'... more
