June 2017 Family Vacation

  • 5 of 5

We went to the Bahamas with our daughter and her young family, we found Ten Bay Bungalow perfect for our needs. Ten bay beach is one of our favorite beaches and it was only about 198 steps away. Kemps Cove is just up the road if you like snorkeling. Jim and Karen have a beautiful, well maintained house with all the extras that you could want, including a copy of the Beaches of Eleuthera book that we found very helpful. We would definitely stay here again, and again!

Simple, beautiful home with breathtaking beach

  • 5 of 5

We loved our stay in this house. Plenty of room for my family, extremely clean, and within walking distance of a gorgeous beach. The caretaker was kind and generously dropped off some produce from his garden.

Lovely Home With A Few Minute Walk To A Most BEAUTIFUL Beach!!!!!

  • 5 of 5

We thoroughly enjoyed our stay at Ten Bay Bungalow! Photos posted are EXACTLY how it looks!! Clean new home with all necessities needed for a wonderful beach vacation. Tiled floors throughout, large living area, 2 large bedrooms with attached baths, laundry room & kitchen with stove & oven, microwave, toaster, coffee maker, electric hot water pitcher, dishwasher, large fridge & freezer (with freezer mugs, & many ice cube trays ). Many pots, pans, utensils, dishes, silverware, knives, lots of different sized coolers to take to beach, beach mats, boogie board, beach toys, beach chairs, snorkels, etc. Loads of towels & beach towels, soap, shampoo, & suntan lotion. We were two & choose the bedroom with the larger bath & shower. The bed was comfy & sheets were so soft! All the lights & fans were controlled by clever updated switches. We ate our breakfasts outside, heard many birds, & watched & photographed the many tiny lizards.

Ten Bay Beach became our favorite beach! We swam at high tide & beach combed at low tide finding many sand dollars, shells, & starfish. The water was never rough & the beach was long & expansive. Since we were centrally located, we visited French Leave Beach, "Glass Window", Rainbow Beach (small), Gaulding's Cay, fed fish crackers at "Ocean Hole", & drove carefully to Lighthouse Beach, but water was too rough to swim.

Karen was so very helpful & responded quickly with answers to all my questions. They had many books on flowers, plants, birds, & fish & in their home & laminated copies of their site info! We had no time for Netflix & the wifi connection was weak. Karen gave us directions to a new grocery nearby & we went there first. It was Friday, I asked about the fish fry, the nice owner told us he had just made fresh fried snapper & sold us two! What a DELICIOUS treat!! Karen told us about a beautiful new resort the "Bougainvillea". The hotel , pool, & Poponi beach should not be missed! We went there twice; once for dinner, once for cocktails & to swim in the pool & ocean. Enjoyed Da Perk Coffee Shop with free wifi, Pammy's $6 conch burger - delicious & cheapest food we found! Tried Governor's Harbour Bakery, but baked goods are HEAVY!. Don't miss "Island Farms"! It's very near! Homegrown lettuce, veggies, fresh herbs, salsas, salad dressings, etc. Fresh bread on Tues. & Fri.! Best Conch bites & Pina coladas at 1648 Bar & Grill!

Sherman's delightful, he met us with his car that we rented. Thank you Jim & Karen!

Owner's Response: Bruce and Noreen: Thank you for taking the time to write a review on our Ten Bay Bungalow. We are so glad the house gave you everything you required to enjoy your stay with us. We have had the internet addressed and it has now been resolved to run at high speed. Island internet is something that Bahamas Telco (BTC) is constantly working at to improve. We are hoping recent upgrades will help. It certainly sounds like you were able to visit many places and enjoyed the island. We hope you will come back again in the future.

You won't regret it!!

  • 5 of 5

You feel invited and welcome by the front deck of this home, the minute you enter the driveway. Even more so as you enter the house and observe how bright, spacious, clean & well equipped the house is. ( There's a big pot for cooking the fresh lobsters we scored at the docks of Governor' s Harbour.) Sherman graciously met us at the airport & helped us to settle in. Also shared his home grown tomatoes with us. He was available to help us at any time!

The house was less than a 5 min walk to a lovely fine sand beach, where the ocean was clear, calm & shallow. Great for seeing star fish, sand dollars and for snorkelling along the rocky edges.

The central location on Eleuthera meant we could drive to all points on the island with relative ease, tho finding some beach accesses was a bit trickly due to lack of signs. Our hosts were very helpful in this regard as they had several info books at the house, about: the 134 beaches, the trees/flowers, the fish & the birds. Loved it!

Our hosts were quick to respond to any communication, & took the time to check in with us. Hey guys, we enjoyed watching the "Beverly Hillbilly's" dvd's. They were a blast!!

Without the sand flies ( which seemed to only bother us 'chicks') you would think this place is heaven.

Owner's Response: Thank you for taking the time to write your review. We happy to hear you enjoyed our home and your vacation on our beautiful island. We are very fortunate to have such a wonderful Caretaker, who is so knowledgeable and kind to our guests. We will be sure to thank him for bringing you some 'Eleuthera' tomatoes. Next trip we recommend you bring some Off Skintastic Smooth and Dry Insect Repellent, it seems to help us with the no-see-ums.

Lovely property

  • 5 of 5

Just spent two weeks at Ten Bay Bungalow. Very clean and nicely decorated. Sherman was a great help nice to have his SUV rental. We travelled to many beaches on the island and the beach book was a big help. Internet was good but smart tv really not able to connect to Netflix or other apps, but we had great weather and not here to watch television

The Ten Bay house was comfortable, beautifully maintained and well outfitted.

  • 4 of 5

We appreciated the chance to stay at Ten Bay Bungalow for seven nights. Kitchen was well outfitted, 'frig/freezer clean and reliable, gas grill a wonderful accessory (especially during two days of spotty electricity...), beds and baths comfortable and luxurious, respectively, and setting very private and relaxing.

As other visitors have noted, Wi-Fi worked reliably but some TV functions were unavailable -- namely Netflix. We were tech-savvy enough to handle it but bandwidth was unadequate to ever load and view a feature on NF (YouTube & others worked fine.) Not a deal-buster for us but disappointing. Had we known, we'd have brought and left behind DVDs for others. Only suggestions might be to add a bookshelf for donated pb's and DVDs, add a sheet-, loaf- and pie pan for those who like to cook. A pizza cutter would have been nice and a new can-opener is needed. (Our Leatherman filled the bill however...) Thanks for the insulated coolers and lawn chairs. We really appreciated them. Nearby beach was wonderful.

Owner's Response: Thank you for your review. It is very unfortunate that you experienced issues with Netflix. If we had been made aware, we could have had this issue resolved for the remainder of your stay. We would ask our future guests to ensure we are immediately advised of any issues by contacting our Caretaker Sherman or us directly by phone or email. It is our goal to ensure our guests enjoy our house and Eleuthera as much as we do. We are happy that you found our home comfortable and equipped to meet your needs and thank you for your suggestions,

Ten Bay beach is world famous for its beautiful white sand beach and protected, calm waters. Eleuthera is 110 miles long, 2 miles wide with dozens of the most spectacular beaches you will encounter on both the Atlantic and Caribbean side. Harbour Island’s pink sand beach is ranked one of the top ten in the world. In our opinion, Lighthouse Beach is even more beautiful. Eleuthera has great restaurants, including Tippy's, Rainbow Inn, SkyBeach Club, The Beach House....just to name a few. All of these places provide live music on designated nights of the week and be sure not to miss Governor's Harbour Friday night Fish Fry!!
