About Rena

We are originally from CT and now reside in SW Florida.

We have been married for over 30 years.

Tequila Sunset was purchased by us for a vacation getaway and our retirement home for the future.

Rena purchased this house in 2006

Why Rena chose Gregory Town

We traveled through out the Bahamian islands for years together and always dreamed of having our own place to come back to every year.

During our many travels we were finally asked what is it that you want exactly for a vacation home? We said quiet, laid back, not too built up but has necessities and great beaches.

That is how we landed in Eleuthera. No regrets!

The island is very safe and the people are so friendly.

We finally bought our piece of paradise and we want to share it with others.

What makes this house unique

When we first pulled up to our property we knew this is where we wanted to be.

The water views from the kitchen, living room etc.. sold us.

The kitchen is spacious with plenty of room to entertain.

We have the best snorkeling right outside the house.

The fishing is great and kayaking is awesome in this area.

The sunsets are the best right from the patio.

Every night we meet on the patio (alone or with friends) and enjoy our shot of tequila with the beautiful sunset.

Beautiful View and Location

  • 5 of 5

This was our first trip to the island of Eleuthera and we picked Tequila Sunset based on previous traveler reviews along with proximity to snorkeling and availability of kayaks. The location of Tequila Sunset was just what we were looking for. Lovely, unobstructed views of the Caribbean sea, a beautiful, active reef just out front and more snorkeling available in easy swimming distance. We started every day with breakfast overlooking the sea, then snorkeling, lunch on the front porch, then kayaking using one of the kayaks provided along with the house. We ended every day with cocktails on the porch and fabulous sunsets. The house is well equipped with just about everything you could possibly need. Cooking utensils, snorkeling gear, some water toys, towels etc. Folks in the Oleander neighborhood are extremely friendly, some are full time residents, some part time and others were visitors like us. Be prepared that the beach is rocky - once you get out into the water a bit, there is beautiful sand footing - but you'll need water shoes to protect your feet getting out to the sand. The reef in front of the house is very active with a wide variety of fish - and as I mentioned previously, more snorkeling in easy swimming distance. We kayaked to Gregory Town one day - the cliffs along the way are spectacular. Wallace the caretaker was great, he picked us up from the airport, took us to a liquor store and then to the grocery store so that we could stock up on supplies. He then took us to Tequila Sunset and picked us up at the end of our stay to take us back to the airport. All in all, an excellent stay and choice of location for our first trip to Eleuthera. Thank you Rena and Rick for allowing us to enjoy your lovely home.

Peace and beauty!

  • 5 of 5

Beautiful large open layout of house with glass doors and amazing views!! Kitchen was awesome and large layout as well with all equipment you will need. Great place for guests to enjoy. We grilled by the fireplace every night, star gazing. we enjoyed our morning kayaking in the shallows and the little cove right in front of the house was cool. During the day we drove to each end of the island and enjoyed! Rena was so very helpful and quick with everything and the property mangagers are awesome as well. We brought our own vehicle via ferry from nassau but the property manager convieniently has a taxi service as well should you need a ride. There is really no reason to go anywhere else once you have your food and wine. But there are places to eat....had we not got a fresh lobster we wouldn't have cancelled our reservations at The Cove for dinner which is very close. My favorite stop spot is the Queens Baths which are close to the house just before the Glass window bridge. Thank you Rena for a much needed break away from it all in your beautiful piece of paradise

Nice place right on a beautiful cove

  • 5 of 5

Nice open layout. Three bedrooms each with large beds. Two sleepable sofas in open room. Beautiful view and light. Great home base to explore the north end of Eleuthera. Nice snorkling, kayaking. Wish they had a windsurfing board because the cove would have been perfect. Daddy Joe's, Glass Window Grill, Elvina's (Friday night jam), Laughing Lizard Cafe all nearby. Easy 30 minutes to Harbor Island. Be sure to go to Gaulding Beach a mile north. Atlantic side beaches near the house are too rough for swimming and you really need a Jeep to navigate the rocky roads although we did manage in a van going very slowly. AC in master bedroom was out, but being December, it was not a big deal. We were watching TV during a brief rain and heard a loud pop after which the TV quit, so this probably needs to be looked at. Mosquitoes only bad at sunset right on the water but for one hour they can suck out all your blood. Snorkeling good but not outstanding. Water very calm and manageably cool (late December.) Great octagonal open den and adjacent octangle kitchen. Very cool layout. Quiet. Neighbors will be sharing the small stony cove beach. Nice way to meet people. Plenty of towels, portable chairs, small coolers, but you will have to go to the 7-11 small store a mile away for soap, ice, coffee, sugar, snacks, extra toilet paper and food. There is a coffee pot and filters, microwave and good frig. We brought our own snorkling gear but there were two nice kayaks. All and all, lived up to our expectations. If you want to explore north Eleuthera yourself, this is a nice convenient base.

Owner's Response: Glad you had a great stay! Thanks for the review. I just wanted you to know that we were just down at the house and the master bedroom air conditioner works great. It is less then a year old. The problem you probably had was that the air conditioner works on Celsius. Sorry about that!

Surfers Beach is great for anyone who enjoys surfing or just enjoys watching surfers.

Sunset Grill is a must do if you want a little night life. It is casual family friendly indoor/outdoor bar with local bands playing. If you play an instrument you can join in at anytime and play.

A fun night out of dancing and mingling with the locals.

Daddy Joe's has a bar, restaurant and great bands performing all the time.

Check with our caretaker or the locals to see what is going on during your stay.

You can just chill on the deck or beach all day or go out and explore the island. Our pink sands and beaches are a must see.
