This house is located on a private peninsula with the beautiful turquoise Sea of Abaco on both sides of the home. The views are breathtaking from every angle. There is a private beach just a few footsteps from the front door, where you can swim or snorkel and the nearby coral reefs. You may even spot a dolphin or two! Or you can lounge or take a dip in your own private pool, the choice is yours.

The Abaco islands have so much to offer. We highly recommend renting a boat so you can island hop and discover all the beautiful surrounding beaches, islands, restaurants, bars and local shops. Alternatively, you can catch a ferry which is conveniently located within a 5 minute walk from Hibiscus House. The ferry's are safe and reliable and run on schedule.

We look forward to welcoming you to this paradise we are lucky enough to call home.

About Penny Vaughan

My husband and I have travelled the world and finally settled in this beautiful paradise, called Abaco.

Penny Vaughan purchased this house in 2000

Why Penny Vaughan chose Marsh Harbour

After hurricane Floyd, our house was very badly damaged, so repair was necessary. We had a plot of land next door and decided to build two rental homes...we must have been mad to do all three at the same time! its turned out brilliantly and we love renting Palm and Hibiscus as we meet so many interesting people.

What makes this house unique

Come and see for yourselves!

A few highlights:

360 degree stunning views

Perfect sunset spot from the private beach

Private beach only a few footsteps away

Discover the highlights of island living

Experience paradise

Explore surrounding beautiful sandy beaches and turquoise water by boat or ferry

Beautiful marine parks for snorkeling nearby

Restaurants, bars, and downtown is only a 5-10 minute drive away

We also live very close by in case you need anything, we look forward to welcoming you!

Great location - beautiful views

  • 4 of 5

Really enjoyed our first trip to Abaco & beautiful water views from every direction in Magnolia House. Lots of space inside and out of house. Great decks. Low key relaxing island. Explored Treasure Cay, Little Harbour & Elbow Cay. There were a few minor glitches but owner was very responsive. Would definitely stay again.

Very nice house!

  • 5 of 5

The house and pool were very clean upon arrival. Nice having a bathroom attached to every bedroom. The dock was very nice to have with our rental boat.

Penny was very nice throughout this entire booking process and our stay. We would definitely stay at this house again! Thank You!

Million dollar views

  • 5 of 5

We loved our week at Hibiscus House! Highly recommend getting a rental boat because this house is situated perfectly as a jumping-off point for many quick trips to the cays. There is a water view out of almost every window, three large bedrooms, and a large common space with sliding doors out to the deck. The house is close enough to town that if you forgot something at Maxwell's, you can easily pop back to get it. We lost power once, but the generator kicked in right away. The kitchen and bathrooms aren't luxurious, but they matched my expectation for a beach house and functioned just fine. Our hosts were friendly and helpful. A wonderful stay!

Owner's Response: Thank you so very much for such a lovely review. I can see that you really understand what Abaco is really all about, but specially Eastern Shores and Hibiscus House! If you come back, I hope you reveal your identity! Again many thanks Penny

Wonderful Stay in Marsh Harbour

  • 5 of 5

My friends and I stayed in Marsh Harbour for 11 nights at the Hibiscus House. Penny and Jimmy were wonderful hosts of their property. They were very receptive to any needs that we had while we were staying in their home. The view from this home is marvelous as you can see water from the back and front of the home. Luckily whenever the power was off we had a generator that kicked on. The location of this house is accessible to downtown Marsh Harbour and easily to ferries going to Hope Town, Man O War, and to Guana Cay.

Wow! We were totally impressed with our trip to Abaco! We were a little nervous with the travel and accommodations since we booked everything online but were pleasantly surprised! Hibiscus House was very clean and well stocked with everything you could need on vacation! We rented a boat from Blue Water Rentals for the week and spent each day on our very own little adventure! We snorkeled and fished and checked many things off our bucket lists! We are already planning for our next trip to the Abacos!! Many thanks to the hospitality of the islands, Michelle and family

Located on exclusive Eastern Shores and convenient to local shops and restaurants, these new properties are built to a very high standard. Each bedroom has its own bathroom, the pool is outdoors on the decking and multi level decks overlook breathtaking views of the sea and cays beyond. Enjoy the beautiful sunsets or just gaze at the stars. A great place for tanning or dining alfresco style. Only a few footsteps will bring you to a private beach. These are great homes for large groups and family reunions, executives, couples travelling together. Suggest car and/or boat rental.
