ISLAND INFO

Hope Town is a small picturesque village built around a protected harbour on the island of Elbow Cay (just 175 miles east of Palm Beach, Florida). Often described as a pastel-coloured New England fishing village, Hope Town has several fine restaurants, lovely inns, grocery stores with fresh baked bread, interesting shops with artwork, jewelry, and clothing; modern marinas, boat rentals, private vacation homes for rent, and most importantly a genuinely kind and friendly population. The island is approximately 6 miles long and 1/4 mile wide.

A magnificent barrier reef protects the long sandy beaches, making them perfect for swimming, snorkeling, diving, and fishing. The climate is ideal year-round. Renting a private home for your island vacation provides you with more choices, more space, more privacy, and more flexibility than you ever imagined. Tanny Key Vacation Rentals will help you find the perfect island home to rent.
