"I stayed at Lion's Gate for three nights. The hosts picked me up at the ferry in Red Hook and drove me up to the house. They were so welcoming and even drove me to the beach on the other side of Red Hook one afternoon. The place was absolutely lovely. Clean and neat, with an unbeatable breeze. The view is unbelievable. I had breakfast and coffee every morning on the porch and watched the sun rise. The hill is a bit steep - but the location to town is perfect, especially for someone not renting a car. Tons of eateries right at the bottom of the hill. Highly recommend!"

"First time to Eleuthera, first time to Double Bay. This property is very nice. Everything you need to relax. Comfortable house, grounds immaculately tropical, pink sand, perfect water, gazebo by the water. Cell phones didn't work well which now that I think about it, was a good thing! I think we saw 5 people all week (other than the fish fry we went to on Friday which is a nice little change of pace for vacationers). Car rental recommended, the owner of this property hooked us up with that was was very accommodating in every other way as well. Enjoy"

"What a marvelous destination vacation villa this place turned out to be. My wife and I chose Solaria II on Ambergris Caye to celebrate our 40th Wedding Anniversary with our entire family of 8 adults and 3 kids. The owner was very helpful and kind... the staff was friendly, considerate and most accommodating. It was a very real blessing to the whole family... a week we will never forget."

"My family and i stayed at the Royall Lyme for Thanksgiving 2014. We had never been to Harbor Island but my family has a tradition of going away for turkey day AND i was turning 40. So we decided that going to the island off the island off the island of Nassau was appropriate. Everything about the house and the island charmed our pants off. We were 6 total people including 2 young kids. The house and grounds were spectacular: lots of room; felt like our own little compound (cause it was), we had the pool heated and was a great post-beach option; not super-luxurious accommodations but felt very hutchinson island (which is all about understated luxury).
There are wild roosters running around the island and the property which adds to the other worldliness of the place. All in all it felt like a fantastic fantasy island, where all the locals literally know all the other locals. 98% of people are super friendly. You will run into the stuck-up shop owner here and there (Blue Rooster) but that is quickly replaced with the charm you encounter everywhere else. And i have to say, I've never evert felt better, softer sand in my life. I stumbled upon this place online cause it was called the Nantucket of the Caribbean. And i heart Nantucket. They are both roll up your pant legs, get your feet sandy/dirty/wet. If you like the soul of nantucket vs the look at my yacht it's bigger than yours side of nantucket -then this is the island for you. It's a playground for people who live well but don't need to show off.
Practical things to note:
- the house is a stone's throw from where the water taxi drops you off. No need to take a cab when you get in.
- Rock House takes itself way too seriously. Everywhere else was a better and more island-appropriate meal.
- Sip Sip was fun and worth every penny.
- Lunch at Coral Sands and Pink Sands was fun and fantastic
- The island is $10 a gallon of organic milk and $30 lunch entree expensive
- Low tide at the beach is God's gift to young kids. Perfect water. Perfect little bitty waves
- Faye the housekeeper has a restaurant on friday-saturday that you should try
- You can buy fish right off the dock when the guy comes back just before sunrise
- Buy beer across the street from Queen Conch when sitting there to eat ($8 for 3 beers and 2 waters, best deal on the island)in the liquor store
- From here you can walk to everything you'd want to walk to in town - no problem
- you will want a cart though to get to the beach"
