About the property

3 bed house next door also available perfect for reunions, wedding parties etc.

Gorgeous sunsets are what you will see from our beautiful 2 bed, 2 bath, 1100 sq. ft house. Each bedroom both with Queen beds with views out to the garden has its own en suite bathroom making it perfect for 2 couples, families or friends. Both bathrooms have beautiful large rain shower heads one with Marble Carrera tile and the other with lovely glass subway tile. The main room is open concept with the living room, kitchen and dining area all in one. The view is spectacular no matter where you are. The room has vaulted ceilings that overlook the Caribbean Ocean. The house has a very modern, lofty NY look to it with concrete floors, concrete counter tops with beautiful furnishings and beautiful design details throughout. The sunsets sitting on the deck on a couple of gorgeous teak loungers or in the house are spectacular! There is a propane gas grill on the deck where you can grill up your fresh catch of the day right off the rocks at the front of the house. The kitchen comes equipped with a cappuccino maker, blender, fridge, stove and oven and even a dishwasher (no one likes to wash dishes on vacation). You will also find a washer/dryer. We do have a clothes line which I just love to use. The house has brand new ultra quiet energy efficient air conditioner units as well as ceiling fans in main area and bedrooms. Snorkel sets as well as beach towels and beach mats are provided. Please note there is no TV (intentionally) who wants to watch TV when you have a beautiful island to discover. We do however have wifi which is great for staying in touch.

We have tried to think of everything you need to make your stay comfortable.

Eleuthera is one of those places that you dream of but don't actually think it exists. It is truly one of our favorite places on earth. Eleuthera is a quiet, rural island and the nearby settlement Gregory Town is a sleepy harbour town full of friendly Bahamian natives. The house is situated in Oleander Gardens in a lovely district right next to the Cove Eleuthera Resort.

We definitely recommend renting a car which on the island is done by locals, there is no Budget or Hertz here, this is one of the many charms of the island. With a car you can explore a different beach every day. Let us know if you would like this arranged in advance. Please note that peak seasons get very busy for car rentals so it is always a good idea to arrange this in advance so you are not disappointed.

On the island you won't find big tourist signs, if you see a trail through the bush most likely it leads you to the beach. There is a wonderful book called 'The Elusive Beaches of Eleuthera which you are welcome to use while at the house so you can find all the wonderful beaches on the island (who knows you may just discover your own).

With both the Caribbean and Atlantic Oceans you will find a different beach every day. The lovely pink sand beaches are a definite must see. The house is a 10 minute drive from the world famous Surfers Beach, if you have ever wanted to learn to surf this is the place to do it. Surfing lessons can be arranged on the island, if you are a surfer already you will love this beach. We don't surf but still love going here as it is a great beach to play in the waves. Also a great beach for finding the tiniest little sea shells as well as great sea glass.

For a lovely day trip or a lovely night out you must go to the very chic Harbour Island which is a 15 minute drive to the dock where you will take a 5 minute water taxi the cost for the water taxi is $5.00/person. You will find great restaurants here and depending on the time of year you will find some of the most fantastic yachts moored at the marina.

You won't find any shopping malls or big touristy places on Eleuthera but with all the beaches to explore who needs that. There are quite a few great restaurants on the island, right next door is the wonderful Cove Eleuthera Resort which is very convenient when you don't feel like cooking lunch or dinner at home. Also a few minutes drive south you will find The Laughing Lizard a great lunchtime spot for the best Jerk Chicken wraps or my favorite the Italian Panini and the addictive Banana Smoothie. Fridays is 'Fish Fry' night in Governors Harbour, another must do. Also at Governors Harbour is Tippy's and the Beach House a couple more great restaurants. When you arrive at the house we will leave a guide of places to go and things to do. There is also a lot of information online on Eleuthera.

Please note that we also have the house right next door which is a 3 bed, 2 bath 1800 sq. ft. house see VRBO #495520 for information on this house. Two houses side by side like this is extremely rare on the island making this ideal for wedding parties, family reunions where a large group would like to spend time together and not be separated by having to stay in different parts of the island. Even though the houses are not exactly the same, the look, feel and vibe are very similar and the amenities are the same no matter which house you are in.

Excellent for the price!

  • 5 of 5

Our family of 4 had a fantastic stay in the beautiful Oleander Gardens cottage. The home was clean, beautifully decorated, and perfectly situated for our activities. Kathy was responsive and gracious in helping us make our plans. The home, the amazing beaches, the restaurants (Laughing Lizard, Daddy Joes...) and the vacation overall were everything we were looking for.

We had so many adventures and have wonderful memories of our visits with Wallace, Ponytail Pete, Miss Veronica & many more wonderful people. We would absolutely go back to Eleuthera (we also visited Nassau, Paradise Island, Harbor Island) and would rent from this owner again. Thank you so much!

Loved the house and Eleuthera

  • 5 of 5

Perfect vacation on a magical island! The house itself was lovely with gorgeous water views that simply were mesmerizing. We particularly loved the modern clean feel of the decor inside the home. Very well done, and not one complaint, except when we had to leave the island. If you are lucky enough to visit Eleuthera, you will absolutely not be disappointed with this house. We can't wait to return!

All I can say is that this place is amazing. House is beautiful and location awesome. The owners make everything easy. Whether you want to relax or explore, it's the perfect place to lose yourself for a few days.

Wonderful house

  • 5 of 5

We are very happy we stayed here. The pictures were exactly like the house, and Kathy and the caretaker were wonderful. The caretaker met us down the street at a store so we could follow him to the house as it was dark when we arrived. He showed us where everything was and was available the entire trip if we needed anything (which we didn't!). One day we took the snorkel equipment and walked down to the neighborhood beach which was beautiful and perfect for lounging. The rest of the days we drove to various sites around the island after cooking a big breakfast in the house. Air conditioning units worked great in the house too. Making fresh piña coladas and enjoying them on the deck or ground behind the house while watching the sunset is a must. We hope to visit again soon!

Perfect beach house!!

  • 5 of 5

House is identical to the pictures Kathy has posted. The house looks like its taken from a magazine, with allot of taste and cool details. Kathy and her partner were really straight and helpful from beginning to end. House has all equipment that any of us have in our houses (kitchen and cooking equipment, cleaning equipment, even laundry and dry-washer). Only disadvantage but no bigy, is that there was no cleaning service whatsoever during my week's stay. Kathy and the neighbors are all pet friendly.
