  • 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."

  • Great week at La Bougainvillea

    "My wife and two young children, and myself, just returned from 8 nights at La Bougainvillea. It's a great property on a quiet beach, with a huge backyard. The weather was a bit cooler than average while we were there, so we didn't take advantage of the pool, but it's nice and very close to the house. We had a wonderful concierge, Shorlette Williams, helping us during our entire trip. She had the house stocked with everything we had asked for when we arrived, and she arranged for two wonderful babysitters for our little ones. The only real drawback to the house is that you have to go outside to access each different portion of the house. This wouldn't have been much of an issue at all, but the weather was cool in the mornings especially, so it took a little adjusting. Just a quirky design, not really a negative. We were also able to tour their sister property next door, 7 Palms, it's a beautiful home...a bit more modern than Bougainvillea, and twice as many bedrooms. All in all, a fantastic, centrally located villa that's well taken care of. If you've never been to Eleuthera, this is a great location to check out, as it's easy to head north or south on any given day, and see different parts of the island. Thanks for a great week!"

  • 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."

  • Awesome home away from home

    "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!"
