A wonderful week
Beautiful spot, great location, and a very nice enable proprietor. Myself and my family were so fortunate to have such a wonderful week at such a beautiful place and able to make it back home before things got bad. Thank you Howard and Mr. Nixon we will always treasure the memories there
Great Funky Beach House
Great layout for families with a "dog run" between the bedrooms and living areas ,kitchen. Wonderful views, perfect location and every imaginable cooking tool, water toy, pot, cup you could need. Lots of beach towels and a great cd collection and stereo that appealed to our crowd from 34 to 64 years old. Only vacation I have ever had where we never bought ice, there were 10 cube trays in the freezer and a small stand alone ice maker in the dining area as well. Several coolers for use too. We never turned on a tv, no need with all else there.
Only issues were the property manager had told me to meet him at the governors harbor airport (we flew in to ELH) for directions to the house between 4:30 and 5. When we got there at 4:45 he was no where to be found. One of the locals called him and relayed directions to us 3rd hand that were pretty close. Somebody helping was always another plus though, all the locals are more than happy to answer dumb questions, give directions, help out etc. Great folks.
While the beds and linens were great, sleeping through the night was difficult. There are at least 3 roosters next door that start crowing on and off between 2 and 3 in the morning and continue past daylight. At least one of them seemed to be just outside the bedroom windows every morning. My wife figured out to run the a/c on high fan all night at the end of the trip and drowned em out enough they only woke us up a couple times.
When folks said the no see ums were bad we kinda shrugged it off, having been born in coastal Fl and dealing with them all our lives. Believe it, they are bad. If the wind wasn't blowing we couldn't sit on the deck and watch the sunset for more than 10 minutes without getting run inside. Once it's dark it's just a few skeeters that OFF will keep away but late in the afternoon it's way bad buggy. My wife had an allergic reaction to the sand gnats and got red bumps all over where she was bit. After about 3 days we said she had the Bahamian measels ...
We absolutely LOVED the Blue Moon property!!! The color and clarity of the water was like nothing else on this Earth (literally)! Snorkeling, kayaking, swimming, and viewing were simply amazing! Some of our sunset pictures off the deck are postcard worthy! Howard, the owner, was happy to queue us in on beaches to visit and answered all of our questions prior to the trip (personal tour guide of sorts). We recommend a higher profile vehicle to access the beaches, and maybe ear plugs as the roosters who live next door are quite vocal. Bug spray when visiting the beaches and post sunset was a necessity. We suggest bringing a fair amount of cash, since food is expensive and credit cards have a large surcharge. Safety never seemed to be an issue. I would highly recommend Blue Moon!!! One more interesting experience was to meet up with the fishermen when they came in at around 3. We purchased parrot fish which we tried both grilled and fried in butter (no breading). Delish!
Great Family Vacation in Eleuthera-2019
Our family of 9 had a wonderful time at BlueMoon. The location is perfect if you want some privacy. The unusal layout of the house worked perfectly for our group. We had everything we needed and wanted including the standalone ice maker. The cove is well protected for normal wind directions and the beach in South Palmeto is beautiful. The caretaker, Mr. Dixon, was very responsive and helped us out greatly when the bridge was out of commission on our departure day.
amazing stay at Blue Moon
we totally enjoyed our stay at Blue Moon this past July the 30th.Our group of 7 had plenty of room to spread out .We all enjoyed being able to get right into the water & swim & snorkel.The sunsets were beautiful.The bright yellow wooden
deck furniture was awesome.Plenty of seating for all of us.The location was great,close to gas stations,resturants ect.I could go on & on but I guess I better not try to write a book.HA HA.I would recommend Blue Moon to anyone & I hope to come back again some time.Peggy W.from Texas

This house is perfect for a large family, the floor plan is layed out like the letter L with the long part of the L being a row of bedrooms each with a sliding glass door that opens up to the amazing blue carribean ocean view.

This house was designed and built by the original owner and Architect Ross Rogers.
