Overview

About the property

3 bedrooms, 2 full bath, sleeps 6 comfortably

This was the first home situated on this secluded stretch of White Sound beach, built in 1981. The home and its grounds have been maintained and updated constantly and, since its construction, has been fit with all the modern amenities such as A/C, Wifi Internet and satellite television. Over the years, time and storms have pushed the shoreline closer and closer to the property, offering uniquely spectacular views from the front porch. The property is situated perfectly between the charming village of Hopetown and the serene white sands of Tahiti beach, with bars, restaurants, and shopping in between. Although this is a walker's paradise, the island is dominated by golfcarts, which can be rented through our caretaker. The 2nd level of St. Somewhere is a surrounded by windows, offering a 360 degree views of the island and its beauty. The expansive front deck is excellent for spreading out and relaxing with a drink and good book, or for enjoying meals 'with a view' on the picnic table, partially shaded by an arbor outside the dining room.

Fly to St. Somewhere for the best view in Hopetown

  • 5 of 5

This is a special house, and Jeff (the owner) is a treasure of a resource to have! On our first trip to Hopetown, he provided lots of helpful information from advice for renting a golf cart to get around the island and fabulous restaurant options, to diving spots, and little house tricks for finding hermit crabs and obtaining fresh coconut water. We spent every breakfast out on the picnic table soaking in the salt air, and loved making dinner reservations using the radio on channel 16 in the kitchen with St. Somewhere as our identifier. We felt like locals by the time we left, and will definitely make St. Somewhere an annual tradition. This key lime house is gorgeous with the most beautiful view of the ocean (and Vernon's delicious key lime pies made it even more enjoyable). Run don't walk to St. Somewhere. Thanks for the great stay!

Fabulous

  • 5 of 5

Wow - a million dollar view and steps to the ocean! Four of us spent a week enjoying all St. Somewhere had to offer, and it offered much. Although, we had a golf cart we enjoyed walking the short distance to great restaurants and the grocery store everyday. Lost power a few times for short periods, but just another opportunity to walk down the steps and frolic in the beautiful waters at your doorstep. With the doors open the house provided a wonderful ocean breeze and the sound of the waves crashing onto the shoreline. Loved everything about our stay, and cannot wait to go back to St. Somewhere next year!!

Jeff, the owner, was extremely helpful in providing information to us.

Absolute Paradise!

  • 5 of 5

Your own private beach is just steps away at St. Somewhere. The perfect combination of seclusion and beauty. The location of the beach house was absolutely perfect, while the house itself feels completely secluded you are only a short golf cart ride away from great restaurants, beaches and other amazing views around the island. Jeff (the owner) was extremely accommodating, you can tell instantly in speaking with him that he has a passion in sharing the beach house he loves with others. We will certainly be back next year!

The view only gets you so far

  • 3 of 5

The honest feedback is:

Owner was very nice.

The view from the deck is spectacular.

Location is great, easy access to town, Seaspray Marina, Abaco Inn, Firefly groceries and liquor.

Home is historic, clean and needs updating particularly in the kitchen and some of the furniture.

We found out that a backup generator is a must as the island power was out for 2 days, approx 20 hours total.

Caretaker was very hard to reach, particularly during the power outages.

Amazing views, perfect location!

  • 4 of 5

Of all my vrbo experiences this has to be on of the top. The home was comfortable and cozy. The caretakers were easily reached and super nice people. The owner also very accessible, but the view and location......memorable. Thank you Jeff, Wilma and Sherman for an amazing spring break!

St. Somewhere = St. Perfection

  • 5 of 5

St. Somewhere was exactly what we were looking for--very private, quiet with an amazing beachfront location. It was very easy to unwind in such a beautiful place. It felt like a family home, rather than an anonymous condo that could have been anywhere.

It was close enough to town (with a rental golf cart) and yet enough outside of town that we really felt like we were getting away. There was a nearby grocery that consistently seemed to be better stocked than the two in Hopetown itself.

If you're looking for a peaceful, relaxing vacation--this is the place!
