"We had the distinct pleasure of spending a week in this little cottage, a small paradise with a spectacular hostess. The property is beautiful, well maintained and quiet. Within a couple of minutes you are lounging on an expansive beach, almost by yourself, listening to the waves of the Atlantic Ocean.
The cottage is well maintained, organized and very cosy. Everything you need is there and if it isn't, Rosie will do her best to get it for you. Rosie is a very interesting and fascinating woman who was so helpful and accomodating, even beyond the call of duty...
The cottage is located at the south end of the island in a nice quiet neighborhood. As is the norm, we had a golf cart rented which allowed us to come and go as we pleased.
We strongly recommend at stay at the Mermaid Retreat and take time to chat with Rosie. She is an amazing woman and we loved our week with her.
Rosie, Thank you again for your help, your compassion and your stories. Miss you,
The Allains & the Whites
New Brunswick, Canadao"

"I recently spent two lovely weeks at Oleander in Dunmore Town on Harbour Island, and it was perfect! Within walking distance of shops, restaurants and the ocean, it is perfectly situated down a lovely side street. A very comfortable and charming house, with a well equipped kitchen and lots of wonderful outdoor spaces to choose from. The owners are wonderful, charming and very helpful. I would definitely recommend Oleander and certainly stay there again!!"

"We spoke with the owner before booking the property because we were arriving by personal boat and he was beyond willing to accommodate us incase of early/delayed arrival. We arrived and was greeted by the care taker and he showed us all the ropes and gave us his contact information. The house has wifi, TV, MIL suite, washer & dryer, dishwasher, etc which helped us out so much. The property is so close to everything. I recommend Bahamas Roasters for your morning coffee & Beyond the Reef for cocktails. We all had such a good time and the house was absolutely perfect. We felt right at home. Would definitely book again!"

"Stayed at Little Arches to celebrate Christmas (wife and myself and 22 and 25 year old daughters). All agreed it was best vacation ever – only sadness was realizing on Friday that our week was up and we had to leave the next day!
Kim (owner) was great to work with. Everything was better than advertised, all accommodations were in great shape, very clean and well kept. She provided AWESOME detail on logistics to get to the house (was great – flight was long delayed and we arrived at North Eleuthera tired and after dark but breezed through like pros thanks to her directions and the helpful taxi drivers that know her and pamper her guests). She also gave us the low down on all places to visit, activities to pursue and places to shop and eat. We did not get thought the full of the list, so are already planning the return to continue checking it all out.
The island is a ton of fun with both the friendliest locals and the most awesome beach we have seen (and we have checked out a lot). Little Arches is less than a minute from the beach and we could sit on the upstairs patio and listen to the waves crashing every night. The options for restaurants run the gamut from upscale (The Rock House) to super laid back local fare (conch salads at Queen Conch). The multiple beachfront restaurants are great for any meal and the staff is awesome in coming up with all types of creative local drinks. There are also many options to buy food for cooking yourself and Kim has Little Arches set up to cook and or grill any type of items you are to as well (we cooked in for our Christmas feast).
Have rented properties in a number of locals and found Little Arches the nicest place not only in terms of location and amenities, but the personal attention from the owner. She had not only provided the information noted above, but arranged for our golf cart, checked with us during the stay to ensure all was fine and ensured that we had connected with the maid and were receiving all the services we needed.
Can’t wait to go back!"
