Overview

About the property

2 Bedrooms, 2 Baths, Sleeps 6

"Serenity" Vistas (unit 1B at the Buttonwood Reserve Oceanfront Condominium Resort) is a bottom-floor unit, that includes a full-surround two-ocean view, facing west over the Caribbean for the sunset and east to the Atlantic for the sunrise. Enjoy stunning ocean views from every room through eight-foot glass sliders and six-foot bay windows. The expansive private decks also feature spectacular sea views in every direction.

Buttonwood Reserve has access to two beaches. On the Atlantic side is a world-class, 3-mile-long pink-sand beach, pristine without a single house. It is accessed via our private, golf-carts only driveway. The condominium comes with a golf cart. On the Caribbean side of our property, almost in your front yard, is a second beach. This beach is small and rather rocky, so not so aesthetic, but the water is as calm as a lake and this shore is perfect for snorkeling, kayaking, paddle boarding, and fishing.

The Caribbean side also features our new 70 foot boat dock, a perfect for platform for jumping/diving, fishing, or of course docking a small boat.

Our resort-style pool is just steps from your condominium. This beautiful landscaped pool is heated for comfortable swimming year round.

The professionally decorated interior of this vacation rental is elegantly furnished, modern, warm and comfortable. The east end of the great room features a modern, open-plan, luxurious kitchen finished in stainless steel and black granite. The kitchen, dining area, and living room have magnificent ocean views in every direction, with water sparkling as far as the eye can see.

The master bedroom is features a large upholstered window seat with magnificent panoramic views of the Caribbean, a perfect spot to relax with a book or morning coffee, or watch the sunset over the sea. The master is furnished with a king bed and equipped with an en-suite full bath. The master has a private door leading to the deck over the Caribbean.

The guest bedroom also features a large window seat with a spectacular view, this one overlooking the Atlantic. The bedroom has a full en-suite bath (which can be accessed from the hall as well). It is furnished with twin beds that can be converted into a king.

Buttonwood Reserve comes with kayaks and a paddle board for use on the sea or in our pond. Bicycles are also provided for riding around the property or to town, less than a mile away. Our groundskeeper, Patrick, is an expert fisherman and will take you out fishing in his boat for a half day or full day (extra charges apply.) Grill your catch fresh on our infrared outdoor grill.

Buttonwood Reserve is an easy 15-minute drive from Governor’s Harbour, the main town on the island. Governor’s Harbour has a charming collection of 19th century homes and churches overlooking its historic harbor.

Just a mile from Buttonwood Reserve is the village of James Cistern, which has two grocery stores, a town dock where the fisherman bring their catch every day, a produce stand, and three small local restaurants, Kel-D’s, Lee’s Café, and the new Leorose Sunset Beach Bar and Grill. James Cistern is also the home of Stubb’s famous barbecue, now called Tamarind Tree Grill, every Friday and Saturday, which is not to be missed.

Other restaurants in the area include Pascal’s at boutique luxury resort Sky Beach Club, Tippy’s (international and fusion), 1648 Bar & Grille at French Leave (fine dining for lunch and dinner), The Rainbow Inn (steaks and Monday night brick oven pizza night) and Da Perk Café (café and sandwich shop).

Eleuthera is most famous for its 100 miles of spectacular, deserted beaches. The island, home to just 8000 residents, is safe and friendly. The snorkeling, diving, and fishing on the island are world class. Boating, surfing, and other water sports are also popular. You can rent power boats, sailboats, sea kayaks and bikes. There is excellent sightseeing, as well. Eleuthera has vast caves, cliffs, a bottomless ocean hole, many unique beaches, historic churches and 19th century homes, and small villages to explore.

Guestbook comments from the manager

We had the most amazing stay at Buttonwood. We came down to ELeuthra a group of ladies celebrating our 40th birthdays. We stayed in Sapodilly and Kool Jumbey. Both condos were beautifully decorated, well equipped and very comfortable. The decor was beautiful and tastefully picked out.The views were exquisite and therapeutic. We loved the entire property. The use of golf carts, kayaks, and beach equipment took the experience over the top. We made use of the Atlantic beach, the pool and loved kayaking down to Leo's on the Caribbean side. We bone fished with guide Paul Petty , boogy boarded on the Atlantic visited with the warm locals at the town Fish Fry and made many excursions to visit beaches and towns. We lived our day trip to Harbour Town and the pink sand beaches.The convenience of location was perfect to jump around. Fresh conch was prepared at the docks in James Cistern. And we loved going to the coffee shop Da Perk. Couldn't be more impressed with the hospitality we received from your staff Tia and Patrick were so very accommodating and locals on the island were cheerful and welcoming. We did have a power outage, and some inclement weather and our entire party got a virus we generously passed on to one another. But that did not stop us from having a trip of a lifetime. Thank you to you and the staff for making a most memorable vacation for all of us. Cannot wait to come back! We loved visiting beaches Cocoadimana and Gaulding Cay. We tried to cliff jump but the Carribean was rough. Loved the Glass Window Bridge and Govenors Habour was charming. Everything we need was provided for. Sunshine, surf, fresh air And seafood. It was a perfect trip!

Reviewer Comments:

We had a wonderful time at the Buttonwood. The condo was perfect and the beach was absolutely gorgeous! You have to take the golf cart to the beach but well worth it. Matt Simon was very responsive to our needs. We had some small issues and they were addressed right away. Sonya and Jim were great and always available. The island was beautiful and the people so friendly!

Reviewer Comments:

This property was exactly what we needed for our large group of 30, multiple families getting together from 2 states to enjoy Spring Break in the Bahamas. Each condo was well maintained, well appointed with what families needed and had amazing views. Everyone loved the golf carts, amazing sandy private Atlantic beach with great waves, Caribbean beach for snorkeling and kayaking and heated pool. Property is in a great central location on Eleuthera, people made it from Light House Beach in the South to Harbour Island and Spanish Wells in the North and everything in between on our days there. Very close to grocery store in James Cistern. Sonya the property manager and her staff were welcoming and accommodating. If you are thinking about a trip to a family island in the Bahamas, where you can spend days being the only people an beach after beautiful beach this is the place for you!

Reviewer Comments:

We spent two wonderful weeks at Buttonwood in March 2018: the first week in Unit 1B, and the second in Unit 2D. Both units were clean, comfortable, modern, attractively decorated, and with "picture postcard" views of both the Atlantic and the Caribbean. A sparsely populated beach was a short walk or golf cart ride away. Buttonwood Reserve is convenient to Governors Harbor, James Cistern, and Rainbow Bay, with their wide range of delightful restaurants. The Governors Harbor Airport is a six-minute drive from Buttonwood. The sun was warm, the weather soothing, and the holiday a real treat for us.

Reviewer Comments:

We decided to join in and help celebrate a 50th birthday for one of our closest friends, and didn't decide to go until the last minute. This proved to be no issue at all, specifically because the management team at Buttonwood were so supportive and understanding of our situation. The one thing Buttonwood has above all is ample space - so if you are a large group who wants to be together, but have your own space - this is the perfect place. There were 31 of us total with kids, and you never felt on top of each other. The condos are clean and feel up to date. The amenities were superb. Having your own golf cart was critical and really fun to access both sides of the island. The pool was warm at all times and the property is well maintained, unlike in some of our previous experiences in the Bahamas. We would DEFINITELY stay here again.

Pretty condo, beautiful island

  • 5 of 5

The condo is new, clean and decorated nicely. It is well stocked with all the beach supplies you could need. The kitchen is also well stocked. My kids loved golf cart rides to the beach, taking the kayaks out, and exploring the beautiful beaches of Eleuthera. It was also nice to have access to a pool at the end of each day. We have loved our stay at Buttonwood!
