Car: Recommended

Buttonwood is located on the South end of the island. This home is on the water (bay side), and 4 blocks to the beach. The closest landmark is the Harbour Island Marina/Aquapazza restaurant.

The best way to get to Harbour Island from North Eleuthra airport includes:

1) Take a 5 minute cab to the water taxi. Although any taxi can take you, we recommend calling Fine Threads (his number is 242 359 7780) to make arrangements. He is very good about getting a water taxi that will take you directly to Buttonwood. It is not uncommon for multiple people to be in the taxi- they run very efficiently. The cost is approximately $8-10 per person, plus tips for baggage handlers. If you call him, he will also arrange your departure.

2) Then, take a water taxi from North Eleuthra directly to the Buttonwood dock. Typically, the taxi will take you to the government dock, but ask them to take you directly to Buttonwood. This is also approximately $8-10 per person.

3) Jo Anne, the house manager, or Travis, the gardner, will meet you at the house to give you your keys.

* if the water taxi takes you to the Government dock, another taxi can take you to our house.

The best way to get to Buttonwood from downtown:

1) Rent a golf cart- we recommend Johnson's Rentals (242-333-2376)

2) Take Queen's highway (not really a highway) to the south end of the island

2) Turn right at the first street past the old airport (If you get to South Bar you went too far)

3) Take this road to the water and right before the road curves around you will be at Buttonwood.

4) Turn right into the road and we are the first driveway. You will see a sign that says Buttonwood.
