Great Place, but understand, Eleuthera aint for sissy's.

  • 5 of 5

AIR was exactly what I expected. It was a unique house in a quiet location. AIR is an open air place. Yes, you can close in the bedroom and the living room too, but the unique part about it is the open air nature of it. The place is elevated and set on a point so we always had a breeze.

Bed was comfy, patio was great and the fire pit was excellent. Need some firewood, simply keep your eyes open during the day. Now AIR and Eleuthera, aint for sissy's. AIR sits about 2 miles off the main highway and the dirt road to get to it is bumpy. It's no problem to navigate, you just need to take your time.

We rented the jeep along with the cottage and I would recommend it. It was great for exploring the island and AIR is well located to do just that. From AIR we were able to go from the north end of eleuthera including Spanish Wells and Harbour Island down to Palmetto Point. We are beach junkies and Eleuthera dose not disappoint. Check out Ben Bay Beach - secluded Horseshoe shaped beach on north end and Poponi Beach near Palmetto Point in the south.

The kitchen at AIR was easy to use and the fridge was FREEZING. Kept my beer nice and cold. The grill on the covered patio is nicer than the one I have at home and we cooked on it a couple of nights - including fresh lobster - bought on a dock not earned in the sea.

The inlet and lagoon that AIR sits next to is great. We would see fish and turtles on it and found it to be a great place to take pictures, We took a run out to Whales point - all the way - and looked at the south end of Harbour Island. On the way back it was close to low tide so we walked across the inlet and save .5 miles to walk around.

Now understand that there are bugs, especially at dawn and dusk, but burning the candles and having bug spray worked for me. One morning I forgot to apply and went for a walk. I won't do that again.

The taxi driver who met us at the airport was great, as was the caretaker. And as much as I enjoyed the house, I can't rave enough about the jeep and its location. We saw so many incredible beaches that we would not have seen had we stayed at one of the ends of the island or if we had not had an SUV. We also treated Daddy Joe's like our local pub since it was so close.

We loved the place but we are travelers that like remoteness, non-traditional accommodations and the challenge of creating our own fun. If your like minded - sign up!

Peace and Tranquility

  • 4 of 5

Air was just as described. Very peaceful, quaint and charming. Every night we watched the sunset and then we were usually treated to amazing Lightening storms! No TV needed! Watching a couple dozen turtles and sharks swim in and out everyday was amazing! House had everything we needed for a perfect "glamping" style vacation. Bugs were no joke! It had just rained heavily before we arrived and a few days after they were horrible! Once things dried up they weren't as bad. Beautiful breezes flow through the house and the AC at night in the bedroom made things very comfortable. This island has a lot of hidden gems and with the help of the car at the house, LIsa, and Google maps we found most everything! We took a couple boat/snorkeling trips with James that were fantastic! A great way to see the underwater world! We are avid snorkelers/divers and were a little disappointed in the sea life. But if you want beautiful beaches and a relaxed laid back place to go, Eleuthera doesn't disappoint. Thanks to Layne for making things so easy to set-up!

Beautiful, unique property in a magical part of Eleuthera!

  • 5 of 5

AIR was nothing short of perfect for what we were looking for. A secluded and quiet place, off the beaten path with nothing but views and a wonderful breeze. The house is completely open and the water is visible from three sides of the home, open, but screened in which was so great. I felt bad that the neighboring properties had walls! I couldn't get enough of the sounds of water and slight wind every minute of the day. We loved making coffee in the morning and walking to the lagoon to stand in ankle deep water to watch the turtles and fish.

Everything is situated perfectly and you can tell that the owners take pride in making sure their guests enjoy every aspect of their stay. The house has everything you need and the owners are fantastic and warm people.

If you're wanting to be away from general humanity and everyday life for a bit, come to AIR. You won't be disappointed!

Breath taking views.

  • 5 of 5

We loved this location. We were in a secluded area away from all of the business of life. We just sat outside and watched the sun rise when the sea turtles left the cove and sunset as the sea turtles returned!! It was amazing. We did an adult trip but would love to bring our children to connect with them and give them an experience they will never forget. There is some rough driving involved if you'd like to go out to eat but it's worth it. We had plenty of hot water for the two of us all week. Although we were mindful not to waste water. The house always had a breeze. We didn't even need the air conditioner. We can not wait to go back someday! The people on the island are very friendly. The owners of the home were very accessible by email and phone and answered every question promptly. If you are looking for a mini adventure and to relax quietly and enjoy each other, this is the place to go!

PARADISE....Amazing location! Perfect beach house getaway

  • 5 of 5

The Air house was beautiful and so was the island. The house only had AC in the bedroom but honestly that's all you need. The elegant glass sliding doors which surrounded the whole living room allowed for a cool island breeze at your command. The place was equipped with all essentials in case you forgot anything at home etc., bug spray, sunscreen, toiletries. Having the rental car included is a must. So many beaches and places to explore were just outside walking distance, only like 15 min by car. Queens bathtub is must see and rainbow bay beach. Eat at rainbow bay inn while your down there, amazing grouper sandwhich! But if your into plopping yourself down into some smooth sand and cool water the lagoon behind the house is perfect! Don't stay on harbor island unless you like being in a tourist atmosphere, just go visit a night or two for dinner like we did.

Overall the "air" house lives up to the amazing vrbo photos and doesn't disappoint. We would defiantly stay again!!!

Amazingly peaceful and restful vacation!

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I just returned from the AIR house and had a truly wonderful 9 day vacation on Eleuthera. The only bad thing was having to leave. If you are looking for a place to relax, get away from it all and just disconnect from reality, this is your place. Nothing fancy but the beauty of the island and uniqueness and seclusion of the property makes it worth it. Everything basic you need to be comfortable is there. The bed was incredibly comfortable, the best I have ever slept in on a vacation anywhere and we travel frequently. The house is situated at the very end of a remote road, so there is much privacy. Behind the house, we watched the turtles in the lagoon every morning and afternoon. It is really amazing to see. We snorkeled in the waters right in front of the house and saw many large starfish and other ocean creatures. The shelling on Eleuthera is awesome, highly recommend visiting some of the more remote beaches to find awesome treasures. Great restaurants on the island, do not plan at cooking at the house, the kitchen is limited but the food on the island was wonderful. Be sure to check out Daddy Joe's which is very close to the house, the Rainbow Inn for Pizza night, the Wild Orchid which had the best food on the island, Buchaneers, and the Lazy Lizard. The many wonderful, beautiful, clean white beaches of this island are truly unique. many beaches we visited we were the only ones there. Everyone on the island is helpful and kind, and we always felt safe. If you want a vacation where you are willing to be a little adventuresome and find your own way, this is the place.

Incredible North Eleuthera, a secluded paradise with endlessly long pink sand beaches and sparkling clear aqua water. The home is less than two miles from the Glass Window Bridge, where the Atlantic Ocean meets the Caribbean Sea. A five minute ferry ride will take you to world famous Harbour Island where you can enjoy glamorous shopping and top notch cuisine. Get the best of both worlds, the peace and quiet of a secluded home surrounded by water and nature AND the high-fashion chic restaurants, shopping and nightlife of famous Harbour Island.
