  • A perfect getaway

    "Scott’s place was truly amazing! My husband and I wanted to get away from the city and the stress of work and we found the perfect place. The sunset from the porch was beautiful and we fell asleep early every night listening to the ocean. The lagoon was amazing and my husband would sit and watch for fish every night which is one of his favorite things to do. On the not so windy days, it was fun to swim and play around in! We rented the car from Scott which worked out perfectly. The bed was comfortable and there were AC units in both the bedroom and the main room to cool down the house after the hot day. In the mornings we would open up the windows to feel the breeze. We only used the toaster for breakfast, but there were pots and pans if we had wanted to cook. There was even a small charcoal grill set inside the cliff by the porch. If you are looking for a place to escape the pressures of a busy life and want to feel like you are the only tourist on the island, this is the place for you. We were the only couple on all of the beaches on both the south and north part of the island. The locals were friendly and very helpful. Unca Genes was our go to lunch spot and we ate at the Rainbow Inn twice for dinner (Monday night is pizza night with a live band but you need a reservation). Some advice would be to pack a soft cooler for the beach; we were unable to find one in town. We brought beach mats, floats, and beach towels with us. Also, bring a lot of cash as most of the places do not take credit cards (there are a few ATM’s on the island if needed) I do not remember the name, but there is a really good breakfast place right across from the airport if you have a morning flight. You can check in and then run across the street to eat. This was by far the best vacation we have ever experienced and we plan on coming back to "paradise" many more times in the future!"

  • Paradise for two

    "We just left Villa Sylphide after a glorious 12 days. The house is perfect for 2, we loved the location , and really appreciated the homeliness of the Villa. I know there are lots of things to do or if you want you can do very little as was our case. We only ate out 2 times, 3J's and 1648, loved both of them . We basically picked a direction on the beach and off we went, long walks, tons of sea glass a neat little shells. Brian has a great place here and if you need a 1 bedroom I would be hard pressed to think you could do better. Relax , enjoy the moment and go to the Villa you won't regret it."

  • well appointed home with spectacular views

    "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."

  • Terrific Spot

    "If you are looking for serenity then Serenity Cove certainly delivers. Peaceful, beautiful and private. Centrally located on the island, so easy to do day trips north, south or in the area. Or just stay where you are with a private cove, one of the best beaches on the island, snorkeling, a perfect deck for relaxing. From early morning coffee watching the marine life to star gazing at night... it's a great spot. Turn on the deck lights at night to illuminate the cove and watch the wide variety of fish, rays, etc. House is very clean, plenty of room, all you can ask to meet your personal and cooking needs. Due to the irregularities of island services, we had no phone or internet for the week of our stay, but it just made it all that more relaxing. Rock and Nell were very good to deal with. Highly recommend this getaway on Eleuthera."
