"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."

"Our group of six just returned from this villa. We had a nice time and enjoyed the island. The listing states 30 acres but I believe this is shared with the house next door 7 palms which you can see from the back patio. Pluses, very private beach with palapa providing shade, turquoise water and white sugar sandy beach very few beach goers so very quiet and private. 15 minutes from governors harbor and 5 minutes from tippys and the back porch. A little older feeling. Our main issues were the floor plan. All three bedrooms were outside the living room/dining room. Even more awkward was the kitchen was separate from dining room, a separate building so you had to open and close, due to mosquitoes, two doors coming and going to dining room, hard with plates in your hand. Dining is very expensive and something as Common as a fish sandwich can cost $20 or more at the local restaurants. We had planned on cooking. The kitchen was poor. Oven was worthless as the temperature was not accurate,but worse were the preponderance of flys, hundreds maybe thousands when food was being prepared. Our harbor island house we stayed in did not have this problem. We gave up and ate out every lunch and dinner. Lots of sand flys, mosquito bites etc , but that's the tropics. Great place to get away with gorgeous beach but don't think about cooking real meals
Ps fly all the way from Malibu ca for pristine beach and privacy and on the morning of our third day a wedding planner walks through the villa, unannounced, to the back patio were we were having coffee. She wanted to meet clients and tour the property, and we had people still sleeping ! After agreeing to come back after we leave the next day , I go for a run on the beach. When I get back she and two people are wondering around the back yard and continue to do so for 20 minutes. My kids and wife say the future groom stormed into the back yard , enraged we wouldn't give them access to our leased villa. All In , the wedding planner sat in our living room For 20 minutes on her phone, supposedly cancelling meeting, then walked around for another 20 minutes. If you value and are willing to pay for privacy like us, you should address this with management prior to renting."

"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."

"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!"
