About Paul and Ruth Saunders

After living in Nassau for many years, we visited Rainbow Bay two years ago and fell in love with it immediately. We decided that same day to buy property here. It's almost like coming back to our roots, since one of Paul's ancestors was part of the Eleutheran Adventurers, who shipwrecked at Preacher's Cave off the north end of Eleuthera in 1647, and subsequently settled in Harbour Island.

Paul and Ruth Saunders purchased this house in 2014

Why Paul and Ruth Saunders chose Eleuthera

As soon as we saw the elevation of this property and the breathtaking views of the Atlantic Ocean, with its ever-changing shades of blues and greens, and the panoramic views of the coastline all the way down to James Point in James Cistern and beyond, we realized this was the place for us. It's amazingly relaxing to be able to kick back and breathe in the fresh air, feel the breeze, and listen to the waves breaking on the shore.

Enjoy Eleuthera at most!

  • 5 of 5

This amazing and affordable vacation rental give the opportunity to spend your days in Eleuthera in the best way.

If there had been a plaque hanging in the doorway could have said "bigger is better":

This property boast a well-ventilated huge living-room, 2 large bedroom, one with a really BIG king bed and the other with a comfy queen bed, 2 sun-drenched bathroom with tons of towel. A fully loaded spacious kitchen with a lot of complementary goods in the cupboard (salt, pepper, spices, tomato sauce) and in the frigde (ketchup, mayo, maple leaf syrup and so on.)

We were delighted to spend our time in this villa and the owner Miss Ruth was kind and attentive to our needs (one day the house wi-fi signal was down due workers at maintenance work in the proximity, and she gave us permission to log on to their own wireless connection. - they live in the next house).

From the balcony you can indulge on the deck chairs and enjoy unforgettable sunrises if you are sleepless due the jet-lag.

Eleuthera is a marvellous island and this "Sea View Villa" is definitely the worthy accomodation.

  • 5 of 5

We had a lovely stay at this rental. The owners were especially caring. The beds were very comfortable and the rooms were very spacious. The location was convenient for our island exploration and we were able to view incredible sun rises form the porch. We highly recommend Paul and Ruth's rental!

Beautiful Bungalow with views of the Atlantic and Caribbean

  • 5 of 5

Paul and Ruth were great host's. We had everything that we needed in the house to make it a relaxing vacation away from everything. This is our third time coming to Eleuthera and each time we find something more to like about this quiet island. This year we discovered our favorite beach on the Caribbean side of the island, and the spectacular Queens Bath area on the Atlantic side.

The house is large enough for a family or two couples traveling together. The kitchen has everything that you need to cook and prepare meals for the day. We found that we only ate out one night at The Fish Fry in Governors Harbour and highly recommend it, it is a great way to see others on the island. (There were a at least 200 people the night that we attended.)

The house has a couple of coolers to take your lunch and drinks to the beach which is very handy. Add to that a couple of folding chairs, boogie boards, and everything that you need to build a sand castle at the beach. The only thing that I could think of to add would be a kite.

This island allows you to get away from it all, and find your own private beach or go to the "busy" beach French Leave where you might find up to 50 people on this pristine stretch of beach.

This house works well for exploring the northern part of the island and Harbour Island. You will want a car or SUV to get around as the closest store is up the road in James Cistern. Lots of great mom and pop stores on the Island to get supplies, the Bakery in Governors Harbour is excellent for fresh baked breads.

If you need there is good wifi at the house to keep you connected on important business at home. This rental is tremendous value for what you get.

Recommend for families or couples looking for a relaxing time away from everything.

Thank you Paul and Ruth!

All the best,

Shawn and Kismet

Amazing house, wonderful owners!

  • 5 of 5

We just completed 10 day stay in Sea View Villa. Spacious house, clean, comfortable. Amazing views! Owners are incredible people who made our anniversary vacation a success. Our 6 yo daughter couldn't wait to come to the house from the beach as she loved her room and her queen bed.

The house is centrally located making it's easy to reach any side of the island. Rainbow Bay beach is 5 min drive from the house. Ruth and Paul, thank you very much for your hospitality!
