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 !

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!

Fantastic family time in the Abacos!

  • 5 of 5

This property was wonderful! It was large, spacious, well-equipped, and perfectly located! We had a few issues with the water heater not working and then no water, but it was fixed very quickly. The power went out once, also, but the generator kicked on immediately. We came with a large group (10 adults and 4 children) and never felt crowded or cramped. The view from the back deck overlooking the water is indescribable! We spent almost every evening out on the back deck stargazing and listening to the waves. We had a truly remarkable and wonderful vacation. We would love to visit again!

great family retreat

  • 5 of 5

Stayed during the Thanksgiving holiday and it couldn't have been better. Even when it was windy there were places on the island to go to avoid the wind. The house is set up perfectly for a family, couples or extended family. Great location on the island.
