Great location, great kitchen items, comfortable beds, large absorbent towels, dock, but...

The stairs still haven't been repaired. The last two treads are missing on the steps to the beach and there was a large nail sticking out that we had to pound with a rock in order to make sure we didn't cut ourselves. With the last two steps missing, it was about a 4-ft drop to the beach and was very difficult to come back up. The steps that were there were dangerous with missing areas and no railings.

Also, a broken step on the stairs to the street and several that were soft when we stepped on them. The railings are so rough we were afraid to use them for fear of slivers or cuts.

We don't understand how everything else about the house is near perfect but the steps are so neglected and dangerous.

Please repair the steps.

Location is great. Rental staff great. House could use a little update. Especially the stairs. Street and beach. Both are in rough shape.

Great place right on the Oceanside. A quintessential hopetown house. Two full bedrooms and bathrooms and and upper loft with lots of extra space! Kitchen is well stocked and has everything you need. Deck is great and large with great views of the ocean/sunrise. Stairs to road and beach are steep but was not a problem for us. Can also get down to town via walking path through graveyard if you wanted to avoid stairs. Has a private dock so we had a boat all week. Perfect week

First Off I want to say how excellent Elbow Cay Properties is in responding to concerns. The location is excellent despite the steep steps up to the house and down to the beach. The house really needs a upgrade the AC the two bedroom units worked but with louvered doors they did not keep the rooms cool all day. We knew the main living air did not have AC and despite keeping the windows open it was hard to keep down the temperature even at night since there is little cross ventilation. Granted we visited the first week of July. There is huge upside for the house with the addition of a couple of mini splits and some upgraded furniture.

Home is well equipped with all necessities and very spacious. Back deck was the perfect place to sit and enjoy the view. Location was great for us. Slightly secluded, had the beach to ourselves, but still walkable to town. We would definitely return and will recommend to others!

*The home does have a lot stairs to the roadside (we rented a golf cart) and down to the beach. They were not an issue for us or our toddlers but just providing a heads up!

This house has everything we love about Hopetown: close enough to walk to town, dock, fantastic view, great kitchen supplies, comfortable beds/linens, well-maintained, clean. It would be ideal except for the stairs from the street to the house and from the house to the beach. They are treacherous and need to be repaired/replaced. It's a good thing my mom didn't join us on this trip, as we would not have allowed her to navigate them. As healthy and agile as my husband and I are, we took extra time using them. Additionally, the handrail is old and we feared major splinters using it. It would have been a toss-up between falling or damaging our hands using the handrail if we had tripped. PLEASE repair/replace them so the house will be PERFECT!

Gorgeous views, amazing spot on Elbow Cay

Whimsey was the perfect spot for our family of 5 to reconnect, rest and explore Elbow Cay. It's location walkable to Hopetown and then a quick walk to On Da Beach for dinner and other restaurants was wonderful. The view from the house is stunning. We enjoyed beach views, easy beach access for swims and walks on the beach, and the stars each night were incredible. The outdoor shower was an added bonus! Overall, the house was so clean and well laid out. Elbow Cay Properties provided everything we needed with help arranging rides to and from our ferry, recommendations and information about Elbow Cay. We highly recommend this house!

The house was lovely, in a quiet position at the end of the road but within walking distance of the settlement. It was clean and comfortable with beautiful views to the east from the large deck. The main problem, and it was a major one, was the lack of shade on the deck. This made it unusable from around 9.30am to 4pm, and this was winter. Despite a table and chairs outside to eat this was impossible without an umbrella and none was provided. I did try to rent one but the only umbrellas for rent were beach umbrellas, designed to be stuck in the sand. I found this a major failing of the house and wouldn't rent Whimsey again for this reason.
I had rented the house specifically to be on the beach but my mother found this impossible due to the lack of maintenance of the steps (missing handrail in places) leading from the house to the beach. When I explained the state of disrepair of the steps to the management company they got them repaired quickly but why did it take a client's complaint to ensure this is sorted?

Manager's Response

Hi Shireen,

Your suggestion of an umbrella to provide more shade on the deck, is a good one. Unfortunately, during your stay there were no patio umbrellas available in our area. We will pass your comments on to the owner. Kind regards,, Carrie
