This second floor studio apartment is located (separate building, plenty of privacy) on a 4 acre beach front property. It does not have any other units attached and is very private. It sleeps 2 people in queen size bed, has a 3 piece bathroom and kitchen. A wrap around porch is decked out with chairs with views of the ocean. Thatched outdoor shower is great for washing up after being on the beach. Wonderful vacation spot for a romantic getaway.

Amazing beach in your backyard

  • 5 of 5

It almost feels redundant writing this review, because the title should be all you need to know. You have one of the best beaches on the island just a short walk from your door. If that's not enough, Ten Bay Beach is just a 5- or 10- minute drive away, which is wonderful for snorkeling or just enjoying the tranquil waters. My wife and I went all over the island going to beaches, and by the end of the trip we realized we had some of the best on the island right by this house.

Regarding the house, it's simple in its construction, but it made a great base of operations for our trip. We had all we needed with a kitchen, bathroom, and bedroom, but how much time are you really going to spend lounging around your house while you're in the Bahamas? Not to say that the house is in shambles; far from it. It's well maintained, clean, and decorated with updated furniture.

One caveat about the island: the sand flies are truly a menace. Take their advice about closing the windows and doors around dusk. You will regret not doing so. Trust me. Otherwise, this is a true island paradise.

Great Potential

  • 3 of 5

We have rented all over the island over a period of 6 years, often with a group. This year it was just the 2 of us for much of our 4 weeks so this small unit seemed perfect. There was a plumbing problem in the unit when we arrived so we appreciated being accommodated in the main house for 2 nights.

Positives: The unit is up high so there was almost always a breeze, and there are windows on all sides so the air flow was great. The mattress was really good. There is a porch on 3 sides of the unit so finding sun or shade was easy. There are 3 living areas on the property but they are spaced apart so privacy was sufficient. There is an outdoor shower and a clothes line. The grounds are stunning, the beach is amazing. The inside shower is great with good water pressure and a really good shower head. The unit was very clean. Towels were thick and smelled nice. There is a full size fridge with freezer, a microwave, toaster, range top, coffee maker, kettle, and toaster oven, all in working condition. There is a new gas BBQ. There is a very effective ceiling fan.

Less than positives: the unit is poorly equipped if you are staying for any length of time and plan to cook, the oven doesn't work (they bought us a toaster oven and we made do), basic equipment like mixing bowls, measuring cups, oven mitts, etc are lacking, the few plates and soup bowls are chipped and 2 of the 3 bowls are cracked right through. The doors and windows are all screened but this is the first place we have stayed that wasn't screened against noseeums, so they can fly right through the screening. There is an air conditioner, so on very calm days or just before it rains you can close everything up and turn it on, however it doesn't work very well to cool off a hot room. There are many things in the unit that either don't work, or work but are in disrepair: outlets that don't work, a broken lamp, 2 broken kettles, broken toilet seat hinge causing the seat to bounce around, broken clips on window screens causing them to shift down exposing a 3 inch wide gap to the outside. One broken and one missing window blind, as mentioned previously a broken oven. There is a really bad smell from the kitchen sink drain every time you run the water. 4 of the 6 outside lights don't work. We ran out of water twice during our stay, which was corrected quickly. On our last morning the main electrical panel shorted out so the power was out until it could be repaired, so no water or electricity.

Beautiful property!!

  • 5 of 5

Our stay couldn't have been better!! The studio was perfect for two people and steps away from the gorgeous double bay beach! Clarice was great and even surprised us with complimentary conch fritter one evening which were delicious. Thanks so much for an amazing stay Senze Nome! We would definitely recommend and we will definitely look to stay there again when we are lucky enough to visit Eleuthera again.

Excellent location, great hosts

  • 5 of 5

The studio is situated by one of the best beaches in Eleuthera.

Steve and his wife are great hosts. They gave us a free ride and tour to the Governor Harbour on the first day and provided us with helpful information regarding places to be seen during our entire staying on the island.

We have had a great time on Eleuthera!

Thank you, guys!

Perfect place for the value conscious Eleuthera lover

  • 5 of 5

We would highly recommend the studio unit at Senza Nome. (The cottage on the beach on the same estate may be worth the extra money, though, if having the perfect view immediately out of your window is a MUST.) The studio unit was just what we wanted - a hundred yards or so to a gorgeous beach (and we've been to almost every beach on Eleuthera), central location on the island which for us was a must, and very helpful owners and staff. We love going to Lighthouse Beach in the south, and Harbour Island in the north. The owners are great at answering questions. The people who help on the property are very friendly. We didn't have Celeste make us a meal, but she greeted us with some excellent conch fritters as a welcome, which was a great touch. We met the people who were staying at the beachfront cottage and house and loved chatting with them. The studio unit doesn't have a great AC (it's good but not great), but it's in the Bahamas and so 79 degrees at night I think feels great. Life is good at Senza Nome. My take is that it probably can't be beat for the money and what you get. We would stay here again in a heartbeat and bring our family back to stay at the other properties at Senza Nome.

A little disappointing

  • 2 of 5

The size is just what we expected and the beach and proximity was beautiful. What was disappointing was the air conditioner is only a small portable unit that was very ineffective and when connected left large gaps for bugs and hot air to come in. Dead cochroach in cupboard left us unappetized. Security an issue as the doors and windows didn't lock or close completely. Although the place is remote enough we weren't concerned.

The island is beautiful despite the obvious depressed economy. Did see signs of new growth which we hope will succeed.

Come spend a relaxing week or two barefoot on Double Bay, one of the most beautiful beaches in the Bahamas. Right in the middle of a spectacular two mile pink sand beach with great snorkeling, Senza Nome offers privacy and tranquility yet is just 20 minutes from historic Governor's Harbour.
