This is our 22nd trip to Hopetown and the first staying at Four Winds – and we loved it! The house is well-maintained, the beds and furniture are comfortable, the kitchen is well-stocked with appliances/dishes/serving ware, the outdoor shower is delightful, the location is convenient and the dock is great! There is a grocery, bakery and liquor store within walking distance, which was a concern being so far from town and preferring to rent a boat rather than golf cart. There is good snorkeling right of the dock, along the rock walls and we saw lots of sea creatures swim by ( large rays, schools of jacks and a very large puffer fish which seemed to make under the dock his home). The sunsets were pretty, the air conditioning effective and the deck just the right size for enjoying eating outside and star gazing at night. Liked others have posted, we hesitate to recommend it for fear it won’t be available when we want to come back, but you will not be disappointed with a stay at Four Winds.
We took our family of 6 to the wonderful house in June of 2012. The inside was great with enough room for us all to spread and have a great time. The tv and sound system were spectacular. The kitchen was well equipped. If I have a complaint it is that they need a better ice maker and a washer and dryer. The decks and views were awesome! We rented a boat and a cart for the week. The dock was well maintained and easy to manuvere in and out of. You're down a long secluded path with just one other house nearby. From the dock you can see people coming in and out of Firefly Resort which has wonderful food! (Try the Lobster fritter's) The house has two bedrooms upstairs one with a king and the other with 2 Queens. There was also a room downstairs. Although we rented it everyone just stayed upstairs.
There is a grocery store 3 min. away and also Abaco Inn, Sea Spray and FireFly Resort and the Liquor Store. It was a memorable trip and we hope to be back next year.
