Great location but could use some attention

  • 3 of 5

We rented this house with some friends and there were 10 total people in our group: 3 couples and 4 kids.

The Good:

* Great bed/bath configuration for multiple couples

* A/C worked great

* Good location, not too far from town, but not too close either

* Great views from inside the house and by the pool. Good breezes outside

* We stayed in the cabana and bed was comfortable and room plenty spacious.

* Tons of beach towels were provided, which was very useful

The Bad:

* The house wasn't as clean/prepped as I would expect. Sand on bedroom floors we needed to sweep up, we pulled out dishes that were dirty and had to wash before we could use them. The coffee maker was sticky and dirty. Fridge wasn't wiped out very well.

*Many lightbulbs out when we got there. Luckily there were extras in the house so we replaced several.

*In the cabana room we were in, there were not pillows with pillow cases on the bed, only pillows with shams. I felt bad having to sleep on the decorative shams, but that's what we did. I don't know if that is what was expected or an oversight when the rooms were made up. Many of the towels were thin and worn in our bathroom.

* Kitchen needs major update. The appliances are very old and the dishwasher didn't do much so we had to rinse/wash things before putting them in. That is likely why the dishes in the cabinets weren't very clean. Cabinets were sticky, scratched up, and some doors loose and falling apart. Drawers hard to open. Rusty around the sink, stained counter top. Just not the level of quality I would expect for the price.

*A hodge podge of dated, scratched cookware, random cloudy glasses and only about 6 coffee mugs for a house that sleeps 10. There were 5 colanders, but no serving bowls. There was 1 metal mixing bowl that we had to use for prep and to serve. With the group size we had it was difficult to prep and serve meals without serving bowls. Lots of small bowls however. I think the place could definitely use a refresh and stocking of kitchen essentials that is well thought out.

* Furniture sagging and worn. I understand that the place probably gets alot of use, but for the price, I would expect things to be a bit nicer.

*Tile in the main house was cracked/chipped and we had someone in bare feet slice their foot on a broken tile so we had to be really careful or just keep shoes on.

Overall, we all really enjoyed our stay, just think a few updates could make this place really spectacular.

Nice waterfront home on Elbow Cay

  • 5 of 5

Carolina Winds is a very nice home and is perfect for a large family with teenagers. The two bedrooms outside by the pool gives everyone a little more space of their own, and worked well for our teenagers. We like this location on the island, as you can take a golf cart to the Sea Spray Marina and the Abaco Inn for dinner and entertainment. The property is well maintained and the beds are comfortable. We would probably rent this house again if it is available.

Awesome house with gorgeous views!

  • 5 of 5

We arrived at Carolina Wind on our 345 Pursuit on the day of a full moon at low tide. We had plenty of water in the channel and no problem getting to the dock in front of the house. The house is in a beautiful location. On the night we arrived we watched the sun set on one side of the house and moved out to the front deck and pool area to see the full moon rising over White Sound. What a wonderful experience on our first night. We loved being back in Hopetown again. We rented our carts from Jr.'s Cart Rentals and traveled all over the Island. The only downside was that we hit a week of extremely windy and unsettled weather, so didn't get to do much fishing or snorkeling. However, the house is plenty big if you find yourself stuck inside due to the weather, and there is plenty to do and see in Hopetown if you can't get out on the water. We spent several happy hours at our favorite place, the Abaco Inn. Cart rides down to Tahiti Beach late in the day to enjoy the views. We did get out to Pete's Pub for lunch and Man O War to pick up some new bags at the Sail Shop. All in all, a great vacation. We will be back.

A vacation in paradise

  • 5 of 5

Our group of five couples thoroughly enjoyed our week's stay at Carolina Wind. The house is so comfortable and the views from the dining room and back porch/patio are incredible. The kitchen had everything we needed to prepare all our meals and we cooked out on the charcoal grills several times. Having our own private dock was so convenient for our two little boats. White Sound is centrally located for day trips to the other islands and snorkeling spots - be sure to go to Mermaid Reef where the fish eat out of your hand. Sandy Cay on the way back from Little Harbour is a beautiful coral reef where you will see all varieties of fish, turtles & rays. It was so peaceful and quiet in White Sound yet close enough to Hope Town by golf cart. We enjoyed our morning and evening walks too. Our only regret was the week went by too fast...

Carolina Wind

  • 4 of 5

Inside was clean and comfortable. At low tide, there was not enough water to move the boat. Need to mention this in info to renters.
