Wonderful pristine and tranquil setting for your Honeymoon, Anniversary, Birthday, Engagement or PreBaby Vacation as described by our past guests!
CAYO LOCO means 'crazy beautiful cay'. It is very private and the only sounds you will hear are the surf crashing around you. Swim with beautiful dolphins and marine life on our beach!! It is so special and awe-inspiring with Jim and Jeanette, our first visitors in the new house....they frolicked with us and we had a snorkel and could hear them talking to each other.....they put on a 'show' for us flipping, twirling and spinning around together!! Very special!!
CAYO LOCO are two very comfortable, casually elegant identical beach houses with all the amenities necessary to make living on the beach a pleasure.

Cayo Loco~ I don’t know where to begin to describe how serene, beautiful and amazing this place is. The cottage is situated right on the Atlantic Ocean with about 15 steps down to the beach. It has sweeping views South towards Sky Beach Club (which is a great asset for those times when you don’t want to cook or drive anywhere). Maureen and Allen were gracious hosts, very careful not to intrude on our privacy but always willing to chat or answer any questions we had during our stay. They were extremely welcoming and made our stay in their little paradise perfect. The house itself was spotless & well-appointed with all the comforts of home nothing more nothing less. The kitchen was well stocked with all the necessary tools to make lovely meals if you so choose. We cooked quite a bit and brought many of our own spices but there were several others that previous guests had left so we used those and left our newer spices unused for the next guests. The floor plan and layout of the house is very well designed and thought out, places for luggage out of the way, plenty of space for clothing to unpack and ample shelves for food storage in the kitchen. Everything we needed for a day on our own beach or travel to another on the island were provided, beach chairs, chaise lounges, towels, etc. We visited many beaches during our stay, the beach in front of Cayo Loco is at the top, the snorkeling here was the best we saw by far. Our other tops were French Leave, Twin Coves and James Point, all of which were completely deserted besides the 2 of us on those days! We ate out several times as well, our favorite places were the Beach House Tapas Restaurant on Thursday, Rainbow Inn on Saturday, also the conch salad at the Buccaneer was fantastic. The local people were kind & helpful. We had friends of Maureen & Allens’ come to the house and cook one evening; Jeremy & Anna. WHAT A TREAT. They were so much fun, taught us a lot about the island & traditional Bahamian cooking, a highlight of the trip. Jeremy even took us out on his boat fishing the next day, the water was breathtaking. We have traveled to 30+ Caribbean islands over the past few years and Eleuthera is now in our top 3. Cayo Loco was by far the best home we have ever stayed in the Caribbean. It was the perfect place to relax, enjoy, and soak in the beautiful tropical paradise and enjoy time with the ones you love. Cayo Loco earned a perfect 10! We will be back.
Cayo Loco was absolutely breathtaking in beauty, tranquility, the sights and sounds were beyond words. We were looking for a beachfront location anywhere in the Caribbean. Our search on VRBO brought Cayo Loco up as a possibility. The reviews and the descriptions helped us in selecting Cayo Loco. It didn't disappoint. If you are looking for a get a way with beaches, sounds of the ocean, gentle breezes, absolute relaxation, look no further. We enjoyed 6 days in this paradise and found it to be beyond our expectations. We had excellent cuisine from local restaurants. We cannot think of one thing we would change. We've recently vacationed in Hawaii and Eleuthera beaches are far more pristine and far less populated, as in rarely seeing another person. We were able to visit 3 different beaches, but the one right in front of Cayo Loco has everything the others offered. There are over 150 beaches on Eleuthera, so if you desire several different beaches per day, that can be an option. We found Cayo Loco's beach to hold all we needed and thoroughly enjoyed it. Every picture we took looks like we stepped into a Caribbean calendar. Maureen and Allen were exceptional hosts, offering an exhaustive packet of information prior to our visit. We were also able to check in via email or in person if we had further questions regarding adventures or restaurant recommendations.
We hope to go back and enjoy the serenity and ability to unplug and enjoy the absolute peace and calm of this beautiful, undiscovered gem.
Our stay at Cayo Loco was perfect. Maureen has thought of everything and ensures you have a wonderful time. The cottage, beach, water and views were incredible. We didn't want to leave.
My wife and I stayed at Cayo Loco from 4/30/16 - 5/7/16, and i'm already looking to go back.
LOCATION: The home is centrally located on the island,which is perfect if you plan to explore the island and enjoy the isolated beaches. It's a 5-10 minute right from GHB airport, easy to get to (turn into Sky Beach Resort and drive towards the ocean and make a left on "Banks Rd", cay loco is 1/4 mile away). It is conveniently located near Gov Harbour which has every grocery, gas, cash and alcohol necessity. Cayo Loco has 3 homes on the property, the beach front bungalows are called Sand Dollar (where we stayed) and Apocolypso, although next to each other, the manicured vegetation makes for nice privacy
HOME: Sand Dollar is neatly appointed with every amenity you need from spices, utensils, pots/pans, oven, dishwasher, ice cube trays/ice packs, wifi, satellite TV (NY stations local). Maureen is a great host and is very informative, listen to her advice; everyone on the island knows her and helps you. The locals are all kind and treat everyone nicely. The beach in front of the home is perfect, a quick walk down a flight of stairs and your on the beautiful beach which has 3 separate reefs great for snorkling.
My advice to anyone is rent a durable 4x4 with sufficient ground clearance, a Jeep Wrangler is perfect. Other than Queens Highway, the roads are rough and difficult to travel but worth it, the nicest beaches are the hardest to get to. Bring strong bug repellent, we had quite a few bites but it was manageable with deet based spray.
My wife and I are 32 from NJ, we wanted to "get off the grid" but have some of the conveniences of home and Cayo Loco is the perfect medium, absolutely perfect home thats well maintained by a gracious host.
RESTAURANTS: Rainbow Inn on pizza night (Monday) is a must (NJ has the best pizza and I was impressed with the food). Pascals is very convenient with great food, close to Cayo Loco and they have great food. Govenours Harbour fish fry on Friday is great, everyone comes out and drinks/parties. LeoRose beachfront restaurant in James Cistern is amazing, stop there if headed north. Hiring Jeremy and Anna is worth it, they come to the home and make an amazing dinner from locally sourced food.
Where to begin on our perfect honeymoon...we heard of Eleuthera and VRBO through a family friend, searched on the web, and both immediately pointed to Cayo Loco.
We arrived on Southern Air in Governor's Harbor, small plane but very quick ride and the airport is only 10 minutes from Cayo Loco. One of Elliot's employees met us at the airport with our car and we were off! Just a heads up..the roads are no joke. Pot holes everywhere..and we're from New Orleans and used to badly paved roads! Maureen and Allen met us at the house and gave us the grand tour as well as great recommendations of what to do/eat. Everything is clearly laid out in the house, they provide everything you could need, and have specific rules which makes things very easy to manage! They had a precious flower display on our honeymoon bed and champagne..a nice personal touch! The house itself is not large but it is everything that you need for a romantic getaway. Maureen and Allen seem to be friends with or know just about every local business owner and everyone will take care of you if you mention their names. Also, we found Eleuthera itself to be a very safe and friendly island. We slept with the windows and doors open (except the 1 night it rained). The Atlantic beach is literally steps away and the Caribbean is only a short drive from the house. Cayo Loco is very centrally located on the island.
Things we did/places we recommend: Pascal's swim up bar as well as eating their grouper burger, we walked there from the house along the beach and went many times. Da Perk is where we ate breakfast 3 times that week as well as the Governor's Harbor Bakery for tasty treats. Jeremy and Anna came and cooked for us our second night..highly recommend! (And schedule early in your stay..lots of leftovers.) We never got a charter fishing trip set up with them which disappointed my husband but we treated ourselves to horseback riding at Oceanview Farms instead! Cocodimama was the most beautiful beach by far and only 5 minutes from Cayo Loco, and secluded. We ate a snack at Rainbow Inn one day on our way in from the North part of the island..wish we had gone for a whole meal! We had a sunset dinner at 1648..delicious and a BEAUTIFUL view of the water. Friday night is the Fish Fry..I recommend going and trying the fresh conch salad.
We enjoyed our unique, quiet, relaxing, romantic, adventuresome honeymoon so much!! If that is what you're looking for..Eleuthera and Cayo Loco are the right choices!
We stayed at the Starfish Cayo Loco house for our honeymoon at the end of June and had such an amazing time. First of all, Cayo Loco is as described! As in, YES, the views from the house are that amazing, YES, the place is that clean and tastefully decorated, YES, you are just steps from an AMAZING atlantic beach and five minute drive from a PERFECT Caribbean beach! Maureen goes out of her way to make sure you are comfortable in the house upon arrival, gives you some tips and ideas for places to go, and then she leaves you to it! The perfect host!
The house had plenty of towels, beach chairs, dishes, etc. There was shampoo and soap in the shower. Everything was clean. The screens work really well to keep bugs out and although there is A/C, we never had to use it (in the middle of summer) because the breeze through the screens is constant and cooling. We even got to witness a spectacular Caribbean storm on the first night which was very cool. The beach out front is stunning. There are some slightly rocky parts right in front of the house but go 30 yards in either direction and the sand is smooth and swimming pristine. The water is completely see through. Plus the rock formations and coral are great for snorkeling and seeing fish! If you want absolutely still and clear water, drive 5 minutes to the old Coco di Mama resort on the Caribbean side and hang out in perfect Caribbean water with no one around.
Another huge pull of the house is LOCATION. It is only a 5 minute drive to Governor's Harbour and 5 minutes to the airport. You can walk to the Sky Beach Club and chill in the infinite pool swim up bar, though I'd recommend driving there along the access road. The fresh sand can be a chore to walk all that way through. GH is a nice town and it has groceries, a coffee shop, and our favorite restaurant, 1648. All you need really. But even better, if you want to explore north or south, it doesn't matter because you're right in the middle! We drove all the way to the Harbour Town dock in about an hour and all the way south to Cape Eleuthera in a little over an hour. That's pretty much the length of Eleuthera so for whatever you want to see, Cayo Loco is a good base. Just make sure you have the cell phone with you that Maureen provides in case of car trouble. On that note, you will definitely want a 4 wheel drive for your stay and try to get a reliable one.
Thank you Maureen and Alan for a great trip. We hope to be back in Eleuthera soon!
We have dolphins on our beach. It is the most beautiful experience to interact with them!! Eleuthera offers every imaginable water related activity from deep sea fishing to fabulous diving and kiteboarding. At Cayo Loco you can even try the latest sporting rage - paddle boarding - very easy to learn offering an excellent relaxing core workout!!
If you are into DWS (deep water soloing) bring your climbing gear as well!
You can be on the beach with your toes in the sand with a 20 minute flight from Nassau which is serviced by nearly every airline in the world.
Come experience a time long gone where solitude, serenity, and sitting in nature is all you have to do for your day's work! Or be active and go out and explore and climb a face hanging over the sea! You don't have to choose one or the other as Eleuthera has it all!
