Lovely inside, tired outside but the ocean view and beach acces is incredible
Needs some tender loving care. A functioning bbq would have been nice. Thankfully we were able to be creative with the broken bbq’s on the property. Even though there were a few deficits we had an amazing time at this beautiful location. The fishing was amazing!
Thank You, Enjoyed having you as our guests at :Magic Sand"

If you like quiet solitude away from it all in a gorgeous spot ... this is it. More tropical than I hoped for... albeit not exactly manicured, palm trees galore, and lots of natural beauty. And if the lot to the south wasn't cleared(not pictured), you'd feel you were in the jungle.Yes a bit rocky directly in front, a few moments to the north or south yields beautiful sandy beach and easy water access. Be aware though, no beach chairs(to stay or to go.. and that sucks)! Aside from the intermittent flow of hot water which one grows used to, you can't beat this mid-island location. Go and enjoy.
Great house and great hosts
Loved the house and the location. It was equipped with all the necessary beach necessities. Beds were comfortable and had a great breeze. Beach was a bit rocky but so beautiful. The only downside was the iffy WiFi. Be sure and go to Island Farm and Da Perk.
As promised. Beautiful.
Privacy and access to nice restaurants nearby.
Thank You Folks. We are happy that you enjoyed your stay
Pristine beaches, Caribbean paradise!
Spent a wonderful week in Eleuthera at Magic Sand vacation rental. Seamless from the start- Hugh (the owner) gave good instructions and we rented a car from his contact. She met us at the airport, and all went well from there. Driving took a conscious effort initially, but quickly became second nature.
The house was very comfortable and well outfitted. We were happy we had stayed on the Atlantic side, as there were terrific ocean breezes. We had no problems with mosquitos or no see-ums during our stay.
The Double Bay Beach was private and very pretty. During low tide, there were many rocks and tide pools to explore for treasures, as well as a nice beach to walk. We found Magic Sand to be at a good spot on the island, allowing us to explore the Northern, Southern and Central parts of the Island. The island is stunningly beautiful- a treat to the senses. We enjoyed trying to find remote beaches (SUV necessary) and trying local cuisine. We bought fresh grouper at Tarpum Bay dock, and cooked at our rental. The house is equipped with spices, pots and pans, a grill outside, and all we needed. We particularly enjoyed sitting on the porch deck and in the Tiki covered deck
with a glass of wine in the evening, or our breakfast in the morning. The house had comfortable beds, good water pressure in the showers, and a large flat screen in the living room. Many dvd and cds were available, as well as books for most genres. The wifi is iffy-
and seemed to be better in the evenings.
We enjoyed frozen daiquiris and conch salad at Leo Rose after searching for sea glass at James Cistern beach (awesome finds). Tried Tippy's which was fun but pricey, and The Buccaneer. Grocery stores were adequate- we did buy produce at Island Farms, and found someone selling stone crabs- delish! Residents were friendly and helpful.
We have only positive things to say about this trip and rental. Would return in an instant!
Great Property/ Location
We stayed at Magic Sands late Oct 2015 with another couple. The property is totally secluded and the house is very comfortable. The house layout is perfect for 2 couples. Bedrooms are spacious, beds and linens are very nice. The kitchen is well stocked and has everything you have at home. Lots of beach toys, "floaties", etc. The TV and movie/book selections were incredible. Everything was clean and modern. Double Bay is a wonderful beach.....can walk for a long way without seeing anyone. Only problem we had was the Gas grille wasn't working but there was a charcoal grille on the property . Thanks for sharing your piece of paradise!!!!
Real glad that you folks enjoyed our place in paradise. Did you note that the gas grill is stainless steel. This goes to show just how severe the conditions are being that close to the ocean. Really unbelievable. Anyway, come again when you can and thank you for your honest critique. Hugh
Double Bay is a private development located 6 miles from the settlement of Palmetto Point just off the Queens Highway. Palmetto Point has numerous small grocery stores, service stations and restaurants. Going North toward the Airport is Governors Harbour and Cupids Cay. Here you will find more restaurants, banks, liquor stores, movie theaters and on Cupids Cay 'Ronnys Bar' . There are gift shops here and several really good restaurants plus a bakery.
