Most beautiful, relaxing vacation we've ever taken.
GoneBananas on Lubbers Quarters Cay is a wonderful place to stay while in the Abaco Islands of the Bahamas. The island is beautiful, the home is gorgeous, and I can’t say enough about how kind and accommodating the owners are. (We felt like good friends with them by the time we left!) The house is immaculate and very well stocked. The rental came with a 5-6 person golf cart to explore the island and two kayaks to explore the Sea of Abaco. We snorkeled, swam with stingray, saw sea turtles, fished, and found numerous conch shells. We rented a boat to visit some of the nearby islands, and that worked out very well. This was truly the most relaxing vacation we have ever had and we hope to go back again very soon!

Going Bananas 2019 Miller/Kilday Family
WOW! Going Bananas is one of the best maintained properties on Lubbers. The inside as well as the outside of the house is beautiful. It has all the amenities that you need for a stay on Lubbers. Six seater golf cart to get to and from the marina. It’s within walking distance but it’s nice to have the golf cart to haul your bags and coolers for boating days back and forth. They have kyaks down by the dock to get your best view of the amazing sunsets. Everything you need to make your stay comfortable is at Going Bananas. We would recommend this location to everyone. Patti and David the owners live nearby if you have any questions.

A bit of paradise!
We loved our trip there! Gone Bananas had everything we could ask for and more. We kayaked every day and boated all around the islands. We had a great time at the only local restaurant Cracker P’s. Big thanks to Patti and David for making us feel right at home and showing us all the ropes. The house was so well equipped with cable tv, movies and books for windy/rainy days to kayaks for paddling and fishing on sunny days. Almost every day one side of the island had calm weather to lay on the beach and walk all over the island. All the residents on the island were extremely friendly and a lot of fun to get to know. Jeff at Island Marina has a great place to rent boats. The Abacos is a lovely and delicious place to visit. The restaurants have amazing food. The deserted beaches and under water museums for snorkeling were beautiful. We will definitely be back for many more visits! Dan and Lisa

Beautiful and relaxing vacation spot.
Had a great relaxing vacation at this wonderful vacation home. Well maintained and landscaped. Featured wonderful views and easy transportation by golf cart to the beach and other interesting places on the island. Patti and Dave Hanaforde were wonderful hosts and very helpful in explaining to us different places to snorkel and fish. We thoroughly enjoyed the peacefulness of the island with not hearing vehicles of any kind except golf carts. We will be coming back soon to Lubbers Quarters and Top Banana for another wonderful vacation.

ABSOLUTELY THE MOST AMAZING PLACE TO STAY
We rented both top and bottom units at Gone Bananas, It was my husband, myself and 4 children. Gone Bananas is one of the cleanest places that we have stayed at in the islands. The beds were very comfortable for our 8 night stay. The Wi-Fi worked great so we could do some business while we were there. The satellite T.V. was great for watching movies in the evenings. The kitchen was stocked very well with large pots and pans, large baking dishes and plenty of utensils. We cooked 7 out of the 8 nights we were there and I must say I was very happy with the kitchen, nothing was missed from home. We liked exploring the island in the 6 person golf cart. It was truly beautiful and relaxing on Lubbers. We are boaters and we docked our boat in Lubbers Marina which was very convenient for heading out each day. We were literally in the ocean fishing in minutes. Tahiti beach is also very close to the marina. The owners Patti & David were so helpful and gave us all the information that we needed. They live on the island and are available if you need them for anything. We had engine problems on the way over in our boat and David was nice enough to go to Marsh Harbor to pick up our part for us. WOW! That was so nice of him. They really went out of there way to make our trip extra special. They are wonderful people! I truly recommend Gone Bananas for a wonderful island vacation.

Real Relaxation
Most relaxing week ever here at Gone Bananas! Thank you Patti and David for your tremendous hospitality. Even though it was windy this week, we had a wonderful time. The only thing better than the islands are the people. Lubbers is the place to escape. The convenient boat slip and golf cart made it so easy to come and go. We enjoyed exploring the island and meeting others at Lubbers Landing and Cracker P's. Gone Bananas was perfect for our dinner party we threw for our local friends. Lots of space for entertaining. The wrap around porch was a great place to recover from the late nights. Looking forward to coming back soon.

Great Vacation
Gone Bananas is arguably the newest and nicest property on Lubbers. Lubbers is a short boat boat ride from Elbow Cay and the Hopetown Settlement. Lubbers doesn't have many amentities besides Lubbers Landing, Cracker P's, Down Deep Fish Store and Dee's Bread, but if you are comfortable handling a center console, it's a great place to be away from the crowd without being too far away. Both Patrick and austin are excellent proprieters at the two restaurants. Definitely rent a 20-23 ft boat (Albury recommended) for your entire stay so you can easily hop over to Tilloo, Hopetown or Nippers on Great Guana Cay. A stretch golf cart is provided and is perfect for checking out the island and taking things to and from the boat. The house has an easy to operate generator for the routine power outages (power outages are part of the charm of the Bahamas). The Wifi was solid and all of the appliances were new and in good shape. We had very safe dockage for our boat. It was pretty much protected from all wind directions. We had a great trip and can't wait to get back. - Bill and Karen

Relaxing times at Gone Bananas ...
We all truly enjoyed our visit at Gone Bananas. The house is beautifully decorated and the design is wonderful. I really appreciated that the decor/artwork was from local artisans ... that made it very special. Having the use of a golf cart was extremely helpful due to the location of the house compared to the dock, beach and resturant on the island. My favorite location was sitting on the wrap around porch - which is where I spent all my time when we were there ... least favorite was not being at the water ...

Fantastic Vacation on Lubber's.
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!
