Guestbook comments from the owner

We have been coming to Hopetown for years ..Southern Cross is one of the nicest homes we have rented on the island , I love the fact it has 6 separate bedrooms and 6 private baths. The pool is not just a small dipping pool, its a pretty comfortable size , it has lots of lounge chairs and umbrellas for shade. there is a deck area right on the edge of the dune - perfect for morning coffee or evening dining . The beach is within steps of the home - the ocean views are great ...we loved the volley ball net in front ..We will be back !

Beautiful home -- like something out of a magazine!

  • 5 of 5

Beautiful home -- like something out of a magazine! But still very comfortable. We were only two couples and we were able to be together if we wanted or separate if we needed. And we loved being so close to the Abaco Inn. The food there is fantastic! We experienced no difficulties whatsoever and would go back again -- this time with a bigger group!

Beautiful Mansion on the Beach

  • 5 of 5

This house is spectacular and easily accommodated our group of 13. We had 3 families with adult kids and we loved the 6 bedroom/6 bath arrangement as well as a large dining table that we had many a great dinner around! Loved the deck and the fact that the public dock is a short walk away - highly recommend renting a boat or two to island hop. We did not rent golf carts - if you're looking to go to Hopetown, that would be a great idea. We boated to the Hopetown Harbor and were able to walk to the Abaco Inn for a nice dinner out, but the walk to Hopetown would be a bit long. There is a grocery store and liquor store within a short walk of the house as well - so you have all you need right there.

The house is nicely equipped with cooking implements/coffee maker and plenty of dishes - loved that we had laundry facilities as well. The property manager was readily available to assist with a couple of issues we encountered and in general, we were very pleased with the property.

We used the pool and walked down to the oceanfront and enjoyed the spectacular view from the balcony every morning. Paradise!!!

  • 5 of 5

Everything was wonderful. We awoke each morning to a glorious sunrise and coffee on the porch. The kids were constantly in the pool as it was only two steps from the door. The large open greet room and kitchen made for fun times and great memories. We put almost all the puzzles together and played several games. It was fun getting around the island. Hilary was a great help making suggestions and offering in help. We all agreed we would return in a minute! Thank you for making our family trip a huge success. It was fantastic!
