                        Exceeded all my expectations. As nice as the pictures are on the Web, they still don't do justice to how beautiful the property and surrounding area is. The house is kept in impeccable condition and you can spend the a whole week without leaving the bay. Fishing, sun, snorkeling, amazing sunsets, nearby supplies . . . the place has it all! - Peter I., NYC USA There are no words to describe how wonderful our stay was at Bahama Villa. A lot of tender loving care went into making this villa a most comfortable, inviting, and relaxing place to stay for any length of time! The house, the views, the patio, the deck, the sand bars, low tide, high tide, the snorkeling, the king bed, the privacy, etc. all added up to a great getaway! - Deborah Zuczek, PA USA

                        This was our first trip to Eleuthera and we're so glad we choose Bahama Villa, we stayed for a week. It was me, my wife and 2 year old son. The villa is approximately 20-30 minutes south of Governor's Harbor Airport. We rented a car from Arthur Nixon, suggested by the owners, and he met us at the airport. The only gripe we had about the rental car was that the car had less than a quarter tank of gas in it. We got a little worried about running out of gas but we found a station on the way to the villa. As soon as we opened up the front door we knew we were going to love the place. Two of the walls are floor to ceiling glass doors so you are presented with the amazingly blue waters of Ten Bay. The kitchen was well stocked and we cooked lunch and dinner frequently. Furniture was comfortable and there was a DVD player along with satellite TV. The bed was comfortable and had no problems sleeping. Our son stayed in the second bedroom in a pack and play that we brought with us. I also took advantage of the kayaks provided by the owner and explored Ten Bay. The deck was AMAZING! You are perched right over Ten Bay and can watch fish and sting rays swim by. The walk to the beach from the house is less than 2 minutes or you can wade in the water to the beach. I snorkeled a few times in Ten Bay. Not a lot of fish but saw some pretty big sting rays. If you're considering going to Eleuthera I would highly suggest Bahama Villa. The owners were very responsive and helpful. Arthur was a great help too.

                        My husband and I love islands and have traveled to many for over thirty years and I have to say that Bahama Villa is our favorite spot to date. We were there for two weeks over Thanksgiving and the roof damaged from Hurricane Sandy (see prior review) had been replaced. The house clean, light and airy with a "tree house" feel overlooking the beautiful clear water. Even though it's in Ten Bay Beach (one of the top beaches in the Bahamas) at Bahama Villa you're tucked away in privacy. Swimming right from the dock is idyllic, the kayaks are fun as is the fishing. Reading on the porch is perfect and at night we enjoyed some of the dvd movies. We cooked grouper and lobster on the grill that we were able to buy on most weekdays from fishermen at either Gov. Harbor or Tarpum Bay. Eleuthera has many beaches (over 50) to explore for walks and swimming. The local people are warm and friendly. The owner Emily was very helpful and Arthur met us at the airport in Gov. Harbor with our rental car. If you're looking for a laid back, relaxing and wonderful spot, this is it.

                        Due to hurricane Sandy, we were not able to physically stay at the Bahama Villa; due to their roof damage. However, Emmy and Arthur Nixon did a great job in finding another house ( next door ) on Ten Bay beach that we stayed for 5 days. Ten Bay beach is the reason we chose this island location, because it is such a beautiful, quiet, and deserted beach to enjoy. We used both single kayaks which worked well. Arthur drove us from the airport, and we stopped at the local grocery & liquor store to buy everything we needed for the 5 days. You are very secluded on Ten Bay, so if you want to explore the island you will need a rental car from Arthur. Next year, we will plan to stay at the Bahama Villa and enjoy their new roof.

                        We come to Bahama Villa/Eleuthera at least once a year, and this past week in September did not disappoint. The villa was spotless when we arrived, the new couches were very comfortable, all bedding was made perfectly, and we were again calmed and amazed by the most perfect view of Ten Bay Beach. There were plenty of fish and lobster to be had, the water was warm, and we enjoyed the high tide "reverse infiniti pool" swimming around the dock. We feel so blessed to be able to return time and time again to Bahama Villa and we can't wait to get back. Even on a rainy day, sitting on the wrap around porch overlooking the water beats any other place I'd rather be. Much thanks and appreciation to the Buckmans for sharing their piece of paradise.

                        We just returned from a dream-like vacation at Bahama Villa and the extraordinary Ten Bay Beach. The house, perched high on a coral point just over the crystal-clear waters, was perfect for us -- fantastic water views everywhere. The abundant sea life, including huge schools of bait fish and sting rays, were fascinating to watch from land and while snorkeling. Our son caught fish galore from the concrete dock and while wading in the shallow water. From one of the kayaks, I caught small grouper and snapper in the deeper water and explored the beautiful coast. Also, Eleuthera as a whole is a wonderful place to explore. We're geocachers and "the hunt" took us to remarkable places. The people are friendly, the native food good, and the scenery fabulous. Already planning a return.

                        Comment Text: Hey Emmy, My wife and I had a great time on our first trip to Eleuthera! We really liked Bahama Villa too and would recommend it to everyone. The view from inside the living room looking out over Ten Bay was amazing! The house was clean and comfortable. The kayaks were a “must have” and allowed us to explore the bay from the water. We kayaked over to Kent's Creek and snorkled there. There are pretty fish near a big rock just outside the left side of the bay entrance. This was my first time to snorkel and it was great...like swimming in an acquarium. You can see a whole new world under the water. I recommend visiting Light House beach and snorkel in Light House Bay. The rock road to the Light House is very rough and narrow, 4 miles long and takes 25 min off the paved road but it is worth the drive. Take water, food, a camera and spent the whole day there. Arthur Nixon was very nice. I felt like he would help us if we needed him. The things we like best about the house were the view (from the deck and 4 sliding glass windows), the location on Ten Bay and central Eleuthera, the house was neat and clean, and dock and kayaks were great!

                        We had such an amazing time staying at Bahama Villa. It was perfect - exactly what we were looking for. The beach was PERFECT for our 17 month old - she had so much fun splashing around and finding star fish. Every day she'd nap for at least two hours, and my husband and I were able to enjoy quiet time right by the water on your dock, with the monitor right by us. I can't tell you how much we enjoyed the quiet and having such a beautiful beach all to ourselves. And seeing sting rays and a shark right at our feet was pretty incredible too!

                        This place is even nicer than what is shown on the pictures! It has everything you can reasonably think of. It is decorated with taste, very clean and well maintained. We felt at home and safe immediately! The internet, phone and cable were a nice addition, our cellphone even picked up a signal from a nearby tower. While there are a few other houses on the bay, they were all vacant while we were there, and they are mostly hidden, so it really felt like we had the whole bay to ourselves. The location is absolutely fabulous! The view of the translucent Ten Bay is gorgeous. It is the perfect getaway and only a short drive from the airport (easy to find using the owner's directions) - conveniently located south of governor harbor where you can buy groceries, gas, and fresh fish on the pier around 3Pm. Once you get to the villa there is no need to go anywhere else! You will find wonders snorkeling or walking on the beach on low tide ! I've added a similar review on tripadvisor.com where I posted additional pictures. We visited other villas that we knew were for rent and agreed that Bahama villa was by far the best value and had the best emplacement. The breathtaking view and the sound of the Caribbean water gently slapping against the coral right off the bedroom is priceless. I would not hesitate to recommend this place! Thank you for a beautiful, wonderful, peaceful vacation!

                        We loved our stay at Bahama villa! The property was clean and well maintained and had THE most gorgeous view. Every day we walked down the steps to snorkel in beautiful crystal clear waters with fish so plentiful that you felt like you were swimming in an aquarium. Every night, we sat on the back porch and enjoyed cool breezes and star gazing. It was so quiet and peaceful. We would wake to the most serene setting as we took in the views of the bay from our bedroom....it was so romantic! We stayed in mid-September so many of the resorts were closed. However, it meant we practically had the island to ourselves and it was amazing! The local restaurants remain open so finding a great meal is always easy. Try Coco's near Rock Sound. The owner (Coco) points you to the beer cooler while he crosses the street to the beach to get live conch from the ocean for your meal...don't be in a hurry, but worth the wait. The Sky Beach Resort became our favorite for its infinity pool bar, great beach and wonderful food. I would definitely recommend renting a car to get around the island because there is so much to explore from one end of the island to the other.
