The main access to our property is by boat, but there is a foot/bicycle path as well. In the home, two bedrooms suites flank the living/dining and kitchen area of this beautiful, secluded vacation rental home. For a couple, you can rent this home as a one bedroom/one bath home for a discounted rate. Please inquire. The home also has a large screened in porch to sit and enjoy the tropical breeze, relax in the hammock, or watch your kids play in the pool just steps from the front door. The home is surrounded by fruit trees and natural vegetation which keeps the privacy and peaceful setting in tact. We are close to the settlement for your convenience of getting to the grocery stores, gift shops and restaurants and just a stone's throw away for one of the prettiest beaches in the Abacos. Traverse across the inlet waterway in the dingy provided and walk over a small hill to a gorgeous white sandy beach on the Atlantic side of the island. We also offer and give discounts to our rental guests for Deep Sea Fishing Charters with the legendary Abaco fishing guide, Cap'n Robert Lowe. Full fill your adventurous spirit and land a big one in the Atlantic Ocean. You can also climb our historically famous red and white candy striped lighthouse. It is the last lighthouse in the world that is still manually operated. There is a wonderful museum in the settlement full of artifacts and information of how the island was settled by Carolinian's who came here after the revolutionary war to stay loyal to the queen. You can rent a boat and go island hopping, exploring our neighbor islands and appreciate each one for their own independent charm or go to one of our national sea parks and snorkel over the colorful reefs full of sea life. Lots of history and activities to see and do while slowing down on your vacation and relaxing with the 'island pace.'
Finally, if you have other friends or family that want to join you, we also have another 3bedroom/2bath rental home, known as Gully's Ridge, on an adjacent property. Between the two properties, we can accommodate up to 12 people. It is nice to travel together, but great to be able to retire to your own space if desired. Come on down to see us! We are sure you won't want to leave!.

This was our third trip to Hopetown and our first taking our kids. Gully\'s nest was the perfect setting for much needed rest and relaxation for the parents. The boys (14 and 11) enjoyed the daily hammock retreat, shot some hoops on the basketball court and jumped in the pool to cool off from the days adventures. The dinghy was especially nice as we got to cruise around the harbour with not a care in the world. Karen and Robert were such gracious hosts and we even got lucky and reimbursed Robert for some fresh caught Grouper. Apparently he is a fishing legend in these parts! Karen could not have been kinder and made us feel right at home. We hope to come again and stay again....We miss Gully\'s nest already!
Wonderful spot. Owner Karen was very helpful with places to eat and see. Can not wait to go back. Joe
Our stay was amazing. Everything was just as described and well exceeded our expectations! We can\'t wait to visit this property again!
We had a great time at Gully\'s Nest. This was our 4th trip to Abaco in 8 years (3rd time in 4 years) but our first visit to Seagull Cottages. The house is in good shape and is bigger than I expected from the photos. The five of us (one on an air mattress) had plenty of room. In addition we hosted two dinner gatherings for family and friends of at least 10-12 people with no problem. On of the the dinners was a fish dinner with fresh Mutton Snapper thanks to a fishing charter with had with Robert (Karen\'s husband). The pool was clean and a nice treat to have after spending the day on the water. Karen, Robert and their family live on the property and are good people, very helpful, but not intrusive. You can see them as much or as little as you want. Karen was a big help in resolving a problem I had with a golf cart rental. Overall, I wholeheartedly recommend the cottage, and will rent there again when back in Abaco. A reminder that the house is only accessible by boat, which was no problem for us, but must be considered when renting.
Loved loved our stay! Thank you Karen and Robert for your hospitality. Great location - perfect for hopping around Abaco with the convenience of Hope Town. Definitely book a fishing charter - Captain Robert was awesome! Highly recommend!
