    Quiet, serene Lubbers Quarters is away from the frenzy of tourist attractions, but near all the island activities for a relaxing, fun-filled, adventurous vacation!! Abaco is a paradise for boaters, snorkelers divers, fishermen, beach combers or those just wishing to unwind and relax.

    Renting a small runabout is essential for living the island life to the fullest. A private protected slip for a boat up to 24' is included.

    We can make recommendations for boat rental agencies or renting a boat with a guide.

    Lubbers Quarters lies protected from ocean swells in the clear, turquoise Sea of Abaco. Located between Marsh Harbour and Elbow Cay (pronounced “key”), approximately 3 miles south of Hope Town,it is one mile long and ½ mile wide. The island offers secluded beaches for swimming, sunbathing or shell collecting, paths for walking or jogging among lush tropical flora and foliage, bird watching, and lots of peace and quiet. There are no bright lights, and the night sky is a star-studded showcase!!!

    There are two restaurant/bars on the island. Cracker P’s is the fun place to see and be seen! The monthly Full Moon parties bring boaters from other islands....often lasts to the wee a.m. hours. (Music cannot be heard from Gone Bananas). Lubbers Landing is a relatively new spot for eats and drinks. Both have excellent views and beach. More restaurants and shops are nearby on Elbow Cay or other picturesque out islands.. A 10 to 45 minute boat ride will allow even more exploring and shopping opportunities.

    From dropping a hand line off our dock to battling giant blue marlin offshore, Abaco is a fisherman’s paradise. Lobster may be caught in season, and conchs are plentiful year round. Several charter captains are available for offshore fishing or bone fishing in the flats.

    Numerous uncrowded reefs for snorkeling and diving make up some of the best marine-life adventures in the world. You can “do it yourself”, or there are several experienced dive operators available for tours, excursions, training, certification and charter. The three best reefs for snorkeling & diving are Sandy Cay Reef, Fowl Cay Reef and Johnny’s Cay. Sandy Cay Reef is in the Pelican Cays Land and Sea Park and has moorings for small boats. Fowl Cay is part of the Bahamian National Trust Preserve. All these are accessible with your rental boat or can be part of a tour with a local charter. We also can provide 'local knowledge' of off-the-beaten-path spots for exploring and snorkeling. An awesome underwater experience awaits you as you mingle with the Sea of Abaco’s colorful marine life.

    If you are a first time visitor to Lubbers Quarters or Abaco, please let us know. We will help you have a smooth arrival to our little island paradise.

    Beautiful home with dock, huge generator, everything you need - and amazing owners

    Thank goodness we rented this property while on Lubbers. We happened to visit during the earliest tropical storm on record, and as such, the power was out for much of our stay on the islands. I'm not sure the listing even speaks to this much, but having a home with a HUGE generator is a big plus anywhere in the Abacos - because the electrical situation is sketchy on all the keys. It was so great to keep the house fully air-conditioned and operate normally (yes we used TVs, cooked in, played games) without worrying about power. My friends had rented a house down the street on Lubbers, and with no generator, spent all the time with us at Gone Bananas. Other amazing things - The pictures of the property don't do it justice. When I booked the property, I thought it was a "nice cottage". Well, it's not. It's actually a beautifully crafted villa. Dimmed and recessed lighting, beautiful furniture, an amazing kitchen, great outdoor deck with ceiling fans and perfect furniture to hang out, lots of games, movies, super comfortable beds, etc. Gas grill a great plus. Filtered water and ice maker- huge plus! Private dock - I also don't think that the listing mentions this, but they have a private dock at the marina. We didn't use it because we kept the boat off our friends dock, but the marina would have been nice - no worrying about wind direction and how securely your docked when tucked away in the small harbour. Best owners - honestly I've always been a little leary when I hear that the owners "live nearby". I guess I really like my privacy, so that's why I've never been a bed-n-breakfast type girl. Patti and David live on Lubbers. And they are amazing. I probably would have never met them had I not needed their help - they aren't intrusive in the least bit. But when the weather was super sketchy and my husband and I needed to take our small rental boat over to Marsh Harbour to pick up our friends, I was concerned. I contacted David just to get his thoughts about the weather - since I'm from Phoenix (boat owner) but not used to 3 ft seas. Anyway, David was so great - he actually took us over to get our friends in his nice big boat (with dry cabin). Then they filled us on stuff we'd never know - like where we were guaranteed to catch grouper/snapper (we did and the kids loved it), and where to swim. And where the fisherman lives to see sharks. Having a golf cart is also a SUPER FUN. Everything was amazing!

    Great Vacation on Lubbers

    We had a great time on our Abaco vacation, and liked our accommodations on Gone Bananas in particular. We stayed in the upstairs portion (Top Banana) , and it was spacious and luxurious. It had both high speed internet (so I could take care of work e-mails before starting our day) and satilite TV. It was much newer and more cleaner than other properties we have stayed at, and really earns the “luxury vacation” label. The boat dock was just down the road, so with a boat rental all the attractions of the area (fishing, snorkeling, etc.) are very close at hand. We had a great time and plan to return next year!
