Recent Eleuthera reviews

  • Fantastic!

    "Highly recommended for those who want to get away from it all. Remote location (you need a car), amazing beach, and extremely quiet. The house was well taken care of with all the amenities one would need to be very comfortable. The owners are very approachable and helpful when booking and planning our trip. In addition, the caretakers for the property were very attentive and willing to help with anything we needed. Flawless experience!"

  • 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."

  • 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."

  • Return trip!

    "I hadn't been back since 2012 but it was just as wonderful as I remembered. The house location is lovely, oceanfront as well as lagoon-sited. Breezes all the time! There were 10 of us this time and we all had comfortable, large rooms with our own bathrooms. Large living area as well as lanais on both sides of the house make for lots of room to socialize (or escape to the hammock!). But the best part is Ruth - cook extraordinaire and housekeeper. Her meals (3/day if you want) were delicious and interesting whether it be your own fresh-caught fish or something she picked up at the grocery. She manages everything with grace and a great sense of humor. There's much to do in Eleuthera, without the crowds of Nassau and other Bahamian islands. You can arrange to go deep-water fishing with Sid or just cruise to the uninhabited islands for snorkeling and a picnic. You can also fish and snorkel right off the beach, as well as kayak and collect shells. Cotton Bay itself is a great place to jog or walk on the road or beach. My favorite activity every day was a nap mid-afternoon, feeling the breezes from both sides of the property and listening to the surf. Paradise!"
