  • Perfect cottage

    "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."

  • spettacolare e stupenda

    "Sorry for Italian language, but you have already some reviews in English which are wonderful, and I can't do nothing but agree 100%! Here the review: Premetto di essere arrivato con la mia fidanzata e la nostra bambina di 1 anno dopo 3 notti a Miami e 2 ad Harbour Island, con l'idea di sposarmi alla villa, per cui il mio soggiorno è legato ad un evento (per me) assolutamente piacevole. Eravamo in compagnia di un'altra coppia di amici (con bimbo di 1,5 anni) e un'altra adulta, per cui avevamo un sacco di spazio a disposizione (vi sono 6 camere con altrettanti bagni ed un salone enorme completo di TV - mai usata, 1 iMac, apple Tv, Impianto sonoro con cucina a vista). Ryan (property manager) è stato da subito molto attento a soddisfare ogni mia richiesta e rispondere a quesiti/dubbi, e l'ho apprezzato molto. In realtà la villa ha già tutto quello che volete: è in posizione isolata, comunque facilmente raggiungibile con strada asfaltata, con un magnifico erboso pieno di piante tropicali. Vi è una scaletta in legno che porta alla spiaggia, con un mare divino, turchese, cristallino, nonostante sia nella parte atlantica dell'isola. Il mare è stato calmo, a volte piatto a volte con onde non più alte di 1 metro. E' soggetto a maree, quando vi è la marea bassa la spiaggia è ampia come da cartoline caraibiche. Dinanzi alla spiaggia (a partire da 30 metri dalla riva) vi sono scogli dove fare snorkeling (io non l'ho fatto) e a circa 100-150 metri i vicini di casa hanno pescato 4 aragoste! La villa ha una vista fantastica, ti svegli la mattina guardando l'alba, con un panorama mozzafiato. Non ho visto cani randagi (segnalati in altre recensioni). La donna delle pulizie (Henrietta) è simpatica e professionale (viene 2 volte a settimana). L'unica nota negativa (indipendente dalla villa ma comune a tutti i Caraibi, assolutamente soggettivo e molto stagionale) è la presenza di piccoli mosquitos (no-see ums, sandflies) molto fastidiosi e temibili quando arriva la sera. Su consiglio di altri recensori, abbiamo portato il Deep Woods Off (che aiuta). Alla fine ho solo aspetti superlativi per questa villa, ed avendo cercato diverse ville che potessero andar bene per ospitare un piccolo matrimonio, questa è quella con miglior rapporto qualità prezzo. PS. Ho cercato altre spiagge (non potevo arrivare a Lighthouse beach perché non disponevo di un 4x4) ma la spiaggia della villa è restata la migliore."

  • Our Special Getaway

    "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."

  • Over The Top Fabulous!

    "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."
