  • Perfect Island Getaway

    "Excellent location, with the ocean on one side and the bay on the other. Lots of privacy, beautiful scenery, and just a few minutes from North Eleuthera airport. Water taxis can pick you up at the dock, and take you straight into Harbor Town. Thanks, Tom (and Carlie!) for a lovely vacation!"

  • Sunsets, snorkeling, and serenity!!

    "My husband and I recently returned from our first visit to Eleuthera and had the pleasure of staying at Tequila Sunset. This beautiful home is on a great lot with direct beach access just a few steps away and is in the middle of this wonderful cove. The water was a beautiful turquoise color and crystal clear, which made for some wonderful snorkeling and shell collecting. I even found some pretty cool pieces of sea glass. The Caribbean side is so calm and peaceful, perfect for using the kayaks to explore the amazing rocky edges of the bluff and for some unbelievable ocean scenery. There is an awesome bench seat along the very short walkway to the private little beach that is perfect for enjoying some breathtaking sunsets, a nice beverage, or to just sit and let all your stress and cares drift away. Be sure to have plenty of bug repellant with you…the no-see-ums can be no joke! The house was immaculate and the pictures are very accurate, although it’s hard to truly capture the spaciousness and openness of this wonderful home. The kitchen was well stocked with everything a family would need to prepare their own meals. There is plenty of seating in the kitchen and dining/living room which would be perfect for a large gathering. Since it was just me and my husband, we loved sitting at the bar height bistro table in the kitchen next to the window, enjoying the spectacular ocean view. We did a lot of cooking ourselves, but went in to Gregory Town one night and ate at Unca Gene’s. The food was wonderful and everyone we talked to was very friendly and always willing to offer tips and advice on the best beaches. Twin Sister’s was one of our favorite for snorkeling around the two rock formations. Preacher’s Cave and Tay Bay Beach were an easy drive from the house and should definitely be on the list of things to see. Wallace, the property manager, made sure that the a/c and fans were turned on before we arrived, making the house quite comfortable for us. He also came by later on that day to check on us and make sure we had everything we needed and also provided quite a bit of useful information. We could not have had a better first trip to Eleuthera or in our dealings with the owners! Rena was always quick in responding to all of my emails and such a pleasure to work with during the entire rental process. We are looking forward to our next visit already!!"

  • Magical, Relaxing Retreat

    "We loved our stay at Sea Song. It was so peaceful that we only ventured downtown one day to explore Nassau. The only word I can think of to explain our experience is magical. We sat on the porch and watched a variety of sea life float through the clear water. It was such a quiet neighborhood. Arnold's service was superb and I so appreciate all of your other suggestions as well. We will definitely be back for another stay at the cottage. Thanks again for the excellent experience of renting your home. I appreciate you sharing it. I've rented homes through VRBO before but never had such great service and suggestions from an owner. I wish you a prosperous New Year and hope to be back to Sea Song in 2014."

  • Lovely - With Plenty of Everything!

    "Balara Manor is absolutely charming, with lot's of Bahamian colors, character and plenty of everything your family will need for a wonderful vacation. The beds, linens, towels are abundant and top-notch. Everyone will have privacy and space to unwind. You may not need to use the same bathroom twice (there are many full bathrooms). Outside, the grounds are lovingly maintained and very private, with expansive views of Balara Bay. Coffee at sunrise and pina coladas at sunset from the covered patio became an easy routine. Located in the center of the island, right near Governor's Harbor, you'll have easy access gas stations, restaurants, and a little shopping. Excellent "home base" for your daily excursions. We loved it! Matt Simon at Eleuthera Vacation Rentals, and his assistant, were helpful and attentive from the planning phase and throughout our visit. I highly recommend! The homeowners were also very attentive and helpful. There is a "blue book" -- a three ring binder -- on site at the property with excellent beach and day-trip ideas. Tips for family travelers: avoid our mistakes & what we would do next time ------------------------------------------------------------------------------------- * There is no sense of urgency on Eleuthera; sometimes things work, sometimes they don't. PRINT & BRING your research notes to make the most of your time. Reserve fishing/snorkeling in advance, and book back-up dates to avoid disappointment and unavailability. * Be sure your cell phones are set up with a global plan BEFORE you get to the Bahamas. * Bring a cooler of frozen food to help defray dining expenses (and you'll have a cooler to use for the beach). * If your short on vacation time, bring a GPS for your rental car and look for cell phone App to help you find the best hidden beaches. We could have been much more efficient in finding and getting to the beaches. It's fun to explore, but our time was so limited we wished we were better prepared. * You'll need more cash than you think... not many places take credit cards. *Don't forget insect repellent, anti-itch cream (no-see-ums) and lots of sunblock -- very expensive and limited selection at the convenience stores. (There is an Aloe Vera plant in the Balara's garden which helps with the bug bites.)"
