The Great Escape is a fabulous three bedroom beach house, in a private setting in the heart of Hope Town. Minutes from the ferry dock and public dock where boats can be moored (Lower Dock). Steps from the glorious Atlantic Beach which runs all along the back of Hope Town and up to the North End. Moments from all grocery stores, restaurants, art galleries and shops in Hope Town.
