They have re-built their dock space after much devastation from Dorian in 2019.

WHAT OUR GUESTS THINK

"Awesome House and Owner”

“Our family of 11 had a wonderful time at Southern Cross on Elbow Cay! The spacious, well-equipped house with 6 master bedrooms was perfect for our large group. The views were stunning and the house is in a perfect location near the Abaco Inn, Firefly Resort, Mackeys, grocery stores, boat dock and a quick golf cart ride to Hope Town.

“Best View on The Island”

“My husband and I stayed here with a group of friends and it was perfect. We have stayed in multiple properties on Hope Town but this one had the best views. Stunning 365 degree views from the kitchen/living area. The pool and beach access (mostly private beach) was an added bonus. It was also nice how every couple had their own king size bed and bathroom. We will definitely be back at Southern Cross!!”

“Spectacular Getaway!”

“Southern Cross is an amazing property. One of the best vacations our family has been on. We had six adults, two teenagers and three kids. The house was perfect. Great kitchen if you want to cook. Convenient location in the middle of the island. Beautiful place to watch a sunrise or moonrise. Friendly, helpful staff and owner. Five Stars!”
