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 !

Perfect Family Summer Trip 2018

  • 5 of 5

We rented this house for a week vacation in the Abacos. We shared the house with another small family. The house was perfect! One the nicest houses in Hope Town! There was plenty of room, the furnishings were modern, the house was clean and exactly as pictured. The proximity to the beach was fabulous. We will recommend this house to anyone. Great summer vacation! Thank you!

Beautiful property, with tropical breezes and awesome view.

  • 5 of 5

This 6 bedroom home was perfect for our party of 12. Each room had a bath and shower and a king size bed. The mattresses were perfect for a good night's sleep. The great room and super stocked kitchen with 2 coffee makers were also great for all our in meals and visiting. We did spend most of our time on the big porch with the awesome view and breezes. My favorite place was the newly built deck at the end of the property. We did some wonderful stargazing while listening to the surf.There was always a place for individual quiet time too.

The property is conveniently located near the grocery store, the boat dock and a short ride to the wine and liquor store. Also, great restaurants were only a short golf cart ride away as was Hope Town. Hilary, the property manager was wonderful. She was there for any questions or needs. The generator came on in a few seconds of losing electricity. We never missed a beat.

Try a catered meal from Jr's Restaurant across the street from the grocery store. If you are tired of fish, he has the best ribs and his wife makes the best key lime pie I have ever eaten.

I am already home sick for Southern Cross of the Abacos!!!

Wonderful family vacation

  • 5 of 5

Southern Cross was a great family vacation. The house was equipped with everything that you need to enjoy your stay. They included all the information about the island and all of the rentals you would need for golf carts, boats and many places to visit. We have never been to Elbow Cay so all of the information was very helpful to plan ahead and have everything we needed waiting for us. Hilary, the property manager was very helpful and always available if needed.

We have 6 children and there was plenty of room for everyone. It was great having 6 bedrooms and bathrooms. The views were spectacular and the location is perfect. We had golf carts to explore the island but many things were also within walking distance.

The kitchen was beautiful and equipped with everything that you need. We took turns cooking every night and had a lot of fun sharing our meals together. There are also nice restaurants and pubs to go out to eat.

We also rented a boat and visited some of the neighboring islands.

It was the perfect getaway to relax and enjoy our time together. I would recommend Southern Cross for a great vacation.

Paradise found

  • 5 of 5

The perfect house for 6 couples to enjoy paradise. Spacious, clean, gorgeous views. Loved lounging by the pool, easy walk to white sound dock where we kept the rental boat. Generator was great to have during the power outage. Centrally located on the island. 10 minute golf cart ride to downtown, 3-5 minutes to Firefly and Abaco Inn and Seaspray. We will be back!!!!!!
