"This was a lovely house with a wall of patio doors providing a stunning view. The listing description is accurate and the photos simply don't do justice to the beauty of the overall location - the wrap-around porch and panoramic view was breathtaking. The property was clean and well-maintained. All appliances were quite new and worked well. The road is paved all the way to the house. The outdoor shower was also a very nice touch.
We travelled with our two children - 6 and a half and 9 - and found the place to be suitable for children, with plenty of spots to safely introduce them to the ocean. The beach out front had everything: swimming, nice pink sand, waves (sometimes), fantastic snorkeling, lots of wildlife - the kids loved it.
The property is very conveniently located and we were able to visit both the north and south of the island with ease. There were dozens of beaches on both the Atlantic and Caribbean and restaurants within 20min. drive. Our kid-friendly favorites were Airport Beach (by the house), Alabaster Beach, Twin Sisters Beach, Gaulding Cay. Nearby towns include Governor's Harbour, James Cistern, Alicetown, Rainbow Bay, Gregorytown - all were very friendly and safe.
We would gladly recommend Bonefish Barbi's to anyone except people with serious mobility issues - there is a set of 30 or so steps down to the beach immediately off the back of the house - and it exceeded our expectations. The owner was extremely helpful and responsive, and the welcome package was jammed full of useful and detailed information that we used extensively during our stay."

"We hardly set our bags down before we walked the short path to the beach. The pink sand, crescent beach took our breath away. And the snorkeling right in front of the house was more than we could ask for in a beach vacation. The house was just right for the two of us and a friend. Walking to the Beach House restaurant was an option we used multiple times during our stay. Mon Soleil was a very comfortable home and it was always nice to leave the beach and be home in 1 minute. We will definitely be back next year."

"We just got back from a wonderful vacation in the Folly guest house ! Perfect location on the island, just minutes away from all the best beaches. Brian was great and responsive to book with, and when we got there, Edgar was amazing. He picked us up in our rental car, and was available 24x7 for our every need ! The cottage itself is adorable and had wonderful comfy beds, plenty of towels, bathroom very clean, and the Kitchen was great and well equipped! It was super nice to have really fast WIFI. The cable TV went out a lot, but I think it's better to watch the beautiful sunsets anyway! I would definitely go back, but this time for a lot longer visit. 1 week is not enough time to explore all that the island has to offer."

"Stunning views, immaculately clean, minimalist charm, we had everything we could ask for plus the sounds of the waves...would recommend to anyone, it could not have been more comfortable and joyful.
We like to visit different places...but will certainly consider returning to this spot just because it was so perfect for us.
Spent 11 days, could have stayed forever. Our only regret was that the wind was unusually strong during our stay so we did not use the beach, swim out front or make use of the paddle board or kayaks, or sit on our deck for meals. But the beauty of Eleuthera is that if it's windy on one side, good chance it's not on the other - so we spent lots of time exploring the stunning "Caribbean" side. Great snorkeling, deserted beautiful beaches.
Cayo Loco supplies really nice beach chairs and towels - we took these with us everywhere, they were much appreciated! Bring a small cooler (we left one there) for lunches as who wants to leave the beach once you get there? Take Maureen up on her offer to supply coconut water - refreshing morning drink.
Eleuthera itself was just our speed - have never visited the Bahamas because our impression was that they are very touristy. Not so here...Eleuthera is a true throw back in time. The local people as well as all the expats we met could not be more kind and gracious, it is one of the safer islands we have ever visited.
And Cayo Loco is one of the nicest vacation homes we have ever rented. Kudos to Maureen and Alan."
