Why Daniel Caldwell chose Gregory Town
Eleuthera is rich in art history.... American Master Winslow Homer painted here 100 years ago and many wonderful artist have followed suit. The island ,offers pristine natural beauty ,laid back and friendly Bahamian culture as well as a new twist ...the surfer / artist culture which evolved in Gregory Town over the last 50 years. This culture keeps great vibe going for those who get it. I will admit it's not for everyone....I've grown to love it and pinch myself to be part of this season in the islands history.

Remote quite , minimal simpler way of life , pristine beauty, fun surf on occasion. Plenty of social life or not.

Great Island, Great Stay!
An excellent property for an unplugged stay! We loved this diamond-in-the-rough, the cottage had everything we needed to feel one with nature, but with all the comforts of home. Secluded, quiet, and breathtakingly beautiful. We plan on coming back as soon as we can, and we absolutely loved all that Eleuthera had to offer. What a magical island!
Unique, lovely, great views, and direct access to water!
If you are looking at Eleuthera, you might be in for adventure and this place sets you right up with stairs right into the ocean. The house was clean, had what we needed, and delivered endless views of the sea, with Turtles coming up for air and wagging their fins to say hello. Great secluded spot, and if you like jumping in the ocean rather than walking in, this place is perfect for you!
Great stay in Gregory Town
Wonderful place ideal for couples great location to visit all Northern Eleuthera sites. Restaurants and beaches were great!
Loved staying here. The location is great and the accommodations are awesome.
Daniel's house has beautiful views and we enjoyed our stay. We loved the beauty of the location, but be prepared for lots of bugs. We wished there were screens on the windows and doors, so we could enjoy the view more.
Daniel's house has a nice island feel. Be prepared to hit the grocery store upon your arrival, as the house was not stocked with toilet paper, paper towels, garbage bags or drinking water.
Thank you For your constructive feedback. I plan to order sliding screens for the door opening so that the house can be open. We are coming into bug season. Also will address the toilet paper tissues and make sure that doesn’t happen again. Thank you Daniel
All about the view
My wife and I made a second trip to Eleuthera for the reason's of a beautiful island. The villa was perfect - a time for us to deflate and relax. Beautiful view's with incredible sunsets. If one wishes to get away with no resort type thrills Eleuthera is it. I was sad to hear that Disney cruise line has discovered the island - hope this is not the beginning of the transformation for the worse.
Bahamas Sea Cliff Cottage is my artist island home built in Bahamian vernacular style similar to Loyalist Cottages built by boat builders 200 years ago. We have a large deck to enjoy beautiful views of rugged tall cliffs with a million shades of blue Bahamian waters that are in dynamic change throughout the day. Enjoy the sea birds and rich marine life below. The island has much to discover both culturally and in its pristine natural beauty. The views from our home are the best....each day brings dynamic changing, light, wind and tide on the Exuma Sound. There are truly amazing sunsets. The house is brand new with simple elegant island inspired decor. Some of my Daniel Caldwell isalnd paintings are featured. You can bicycle, walk, or go by car to local beaches to surf , snorkel or collect shells and sea glass which is a local favorite . Engage in the friendly Bahamian community which is great fun. Relax and unplug from busy world. If you like to read, write , sketch, or paint watercolors..... its a fine spot for this. There are several local style restaraunts and grocery stores near by. There is live music nightly at different venues up and down the island. Find out who is hosting the live music when you arrive. You can rent surfboards or Kyaks, or go fish with a local guide. Several places in Gregory town provide this. In Gregory town check in with local fish dock in town for fresh fish , lobster stone crabs or conch. Conch salad is excellent ask who is making it that day. Go to Pam's Island Made gift shop visit with Pam and see the creative talent of local artisans Pam included.
