Ten Bay Triumph

  • 5 of 5

What a beautiful home! Every possible need one would have is met! Great bedrooms and bathrooms, kitchen SO well equipped, water toys abundantly provided and of course just steps away from the amazing Ten Bay Beach.

The Beach Book by Bret Sigillo and Gunnar Ek was a great item left at the home. We utilized it to it's fullest traveling the central and lower section of Eleuthera. If you want to walk beautiful beaches [besides Ten Bay of course] this book is your guide. Coordinates are given and great reviews that both very accurate.

Meeting the fishermen at the dock in Governor's Harbour offered fresh fish and conch each day. Our experience was to get there by 2 pm or so - 3 pm was a bit too late. Conch Salad prepared right in front of you is something not to be missed.

Karen and Jim were communicating regularly and genuinely concerned that everything was there for us. Sherman was also available as needed and has great stories!

Exceeded our expectations

  • 5 of 5

We enjoyed six nights at the lovely Ten Bay Beach Cottage. The house included everything needed for a fabulous beach day: chairs, umbrella, insulated bags, ice packs, etc. The beds were extremely comfortable, A/C was efficient and wi-fi was reliable. The short walk to Ten Bay Beach was perfect for an afternoon snorkel or to watch the sunset. The location is almost mid-island and perfect for exploring both Atlantic and Caribbean beaches. We made several trips to Mid-way Cost Cutters and Island Farms, both conveniently located near the house. Karen and Jim are very responsive and their house is ideal for your next visit to Eleuthera and I highly recommend it.

We look forward to having you return to our home in the future.

Great home

  • 5 of 5

This was our second time staying at Ten Bay Paradise. The home is modern and well equipped with anything you may need. Great central location for exploring north or south and the wonderful Ten Bay beach just steps away. The owners are easy to work with and helpful. Easy rental car from the caretaker in good shape and good on gas. I would highly recommend this property.

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.

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!!
