A great home away from home
"My cousin, my 1 year old and my 3 year old stayed at this property for 9 days. I would highly recommend it.
The house itself is extremely well appointed, and the pictures don't do it justice. There is an enormous yard, a shaded front/side porch and a back veranda for eating. Inside the house, the kitchen has everything that you could need, the ceilings are high and it is quite spacious. One warning: light sleepers beware! The roosters are LOUD and start as early as 3am. Also, the house is old so on windy nights there can be a bit of rattling. That said, after one VERY windy night where things were rattling all over the place, I mentioned this difficulty to Angelika, the property manager. She had somebody there within hours to batten down the hatches.
Speaking of Angelika--she could not have been more helpful or responsive. She saved the day for us on several occasions, always making it seem as though we weren't being a nuisance. Really great customer service.
The house was a short walk into town, but a longer walk (about 20 min) to the beach. Most people rent cars, which we did for 2 of the 9 days. We got a good workout every day, that's for sure. French leave beach is lovely, once you get past the seaweed. We were often on that amazing beach alone. Crazy.
One thing that we didn't come across until the end, which would have been good to know in advance: there is a really big grocery store with tons of different kinds of foods at Rock Sound. My cousin is a vegan, and there wasn't so much at the Governor's Harbour grocery stores.
Nick, the owner, was very easy to deal with throughout the booking process, and was helpful in providing us with information."

"Excellent lodging, great views, beautiful grounds, fantastic location! Ms. Jean was such an elegant lady and gracious host and full of information and historic tales. I would recommend to anyone! We loved it. We spent the last 4 days of an 11 day trip to the Bahamas and wished we had spent them all at this location. Don't miss the Friday night fish fry, and the bakery with fresh breads and sweets only a 2 block walk."

"My husband and I stayed 4 nights at this house and then moved to another property for our last 3 nights in Eleuthera. We should have stayed put! The beach is gorgeous, Barbi answered every single question almost immediately and thoroughly, beds are comfortable, etc etc etc. The snorkeling was great right in front of the house, but you need to catch it at low tide and on a calm day. We had no problem with TV or internet while we were there. She supplies snorkeling gear, ice chests, beach chairs and bags so you can explore from one end of the island to the other without having to pack very much. The only suggestion I would make is to build a private outdoor shower complete with hot water. Then I might come back and never leave!"

"I had the best vacation of my life here. We stayed three weeks. The house itself is lovely, clean, new, with all amenities you would need. We wanted for nothing. It made being away from home very easy. The location was close to everything. The view of Balara Bay was private and outstanding. I snorkeled daily right off my front yard! The tiki hut was perfect for shade and so fun. Chad and Barry, the caretakers, were professional and very personable. They made us feel right at home. We were very comfortable and enjoyed being at Caribbean Blue very much. I kind of wish I could keep it secret, it is that special. Looking forward to visiting again. Thank you for sharing!"
