Property description

This extraordinary new property is located on a ridge 45 feet above the Caribbean. The views of both oceans are truly breathtaking. From your large windows and extensive decks, you can watch the sun rise over the Atlantic and set over the Caribbean. Both views are vast and spectacular.

Buttonwood Reserve has access to two beaches, a small beach on the Caribbean side with calm shallow water, almost in your front yard, and a world-class, 3-mile-long pink-sand beach on the Atlantic side of the property. The Atlantic side beach is accessed via a private driveway. The property comes with four golf carts for easy access to the Atlantic beach.

If you’re not in the mood for a swim in the ocean, slip into our new resort-style pool, just steps from your condominium. This beautiful landscaped pool is heated for comfortable swimming year round.

Buttonwood Reserve consists of four 2-bedroom, 2-bath suites with full kitchens. Each suite features a large great room with an 8-foot sliding glass door with spectacular Caribbean views. The slider opens onto a large deck furnished for lounging or dining while watching the sun set over the Caribbean. This spacious deck extends around the corner of the building for views in every direction. Enjoy a meal or a beverage on the deck, or watch the dolphins frolic in the Caribbean. The great room includes a living area with flat-screen satellite TV and a dining area with dining room seating for six. The east end of the great room features a modern, open-plan, luxurious kitchen finished in stainless steel and black granite. The kitchen, dining area, and living room have magnificent ocean views in every direction, with water sparkling as far as the eye can see.

The master bedroom of each suite features a large upholstered window seat with panoramic views of the Caribbean, a perfect spot to relax with a book or a morning coffee. The master is furnished with a king bed and equipped with an en-suite full bath. The master has a private door leading to the west deck over the Caribbean.

The guest bedroom of each suite also features a large window seat. The guest bedrooms of the upper two suites enjoy spectacular Atlantic Ocean views. The guest bedroom has a full en-suite bath (which can be accessed from the hall as well). The guest bedroom is furnished with twin beds that can be converted into a king. The guest bedroom has a private door to the east deck of the house, which overlooks the Atlantic. The east deck also extends around the corner of the building for views in every direction.

Situated on 50 lush acres, Buttonwood Reserve extends from the Caribbean Sea on the west to the Atlantic Ocean on the east. Buttonwood’s spectacular three-mile Atlantic beach is pristine, without a single house on it. The only structure is a thatched palapa we built on the dune for shade. Enjoy long walks, swimming, and body surfing on this beautiful beach. On windy days there will be waves. On calm days, when the ocean can be as flat as a lake, there is excellent snorkeling, including
on a shipwreck close to shore.

Buttonwood Reserve comes with kayaks for use on the sea or in our pond. Buttonwood’s half-mile-long pond is a great spot for bird-watching or exploring.

Bicycles are also provided for riding around the property or to town, less than a mile away.

Our groundskeeper, Patrick, is an expert fisherman and will take you out fishing in his boat for a half day or full day (extra charges apply.) Grill your catch fresh on our infrared outdoor grill.

Just a mile from Buttonwood Reserve is the village of James Cistern, which has a good grocery store, a town dock where the fisherman bring their catch every day, a produce stand, and two small local restaurants, Kel-D’s and Lee’s Café. James Cistern is also the home of Stubb’s famous barbecue, every Friday and Saturday, which is not to be missed.

Buttonwood Reserve is an easy 15-minute drive from Governors Harbour, the main town on the island. Governors Harbour has a charming collection of 19th century homes and churches overlooking its historic harbor. Buy fresh fish and lobster every afternoon from fisherman at the town dock, or visit the recently restored Haynes Library, which dates from 1897, for the weekly coffee hour for foreign residents and tourists. Governors Harbour has grocery stores, restaurants, liquor stores, two banks with ATMs, a bakery, gift shops, and a medical clinic. Friday night Fish Fry in Governors Harbour, a street/beach party that brings together all the tourists and locals with food, drink, and dancing in the street, is not to be missed.

Buttonwood Reserve is less than 10 minutes from the boutique luxury resort Sky Beach Club, which has an excellent beachfront restaurant and infinity pool, with swim up cocktail bar and poolside service all day long. Other restaurants in the area include Tippy’s (international and fusion), The Beach House (tapas), and The Rainbow Inn (famous for its steaks) and Da Perk (café and sandwich shop). The above all have live music one or more nights a week, so there is live entertainment somewhere nearby almost every night.

Eleuthera is most famous for its 100 miles of spectacular, deserted beaches. The island, home to just 8000 residents, is famous for being safe. Enjoy the rare experience of picking up hitch-hikers and leaving your keys in the car wherever you go. The snorkeling, diving, and fishing on the island are world class. Boating, surfing, and other water sports are also popular. You can rent power boats, sailboats, sea kayaks, bikes. You can have a charter captain take you out for excursions of various types. There is excellent sightseeing as well. Eleuthera has vast caves, cliffs, a bottomless ocean hole, many unique beaches, historic churches and 19th century homes, and small villages to explore. We hope you will enjoy Buttonwood Reserve and experience all our island has to offer.
