About Paul and Ruth Saunders

After living in Nassau for many years, we visited Rainbow Bay 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 Rainbow Bay

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.

Lulled to sleep every night by the sound of waves

  • 5 of 5

I have been renting homes through VRBO since 2002 and have been consistently pleased with my experiences. This continues to be the case with our stay at Sea View Villa in Rainbow Bay. Ruth is an exceptional hostess and she was able to give us "insider" information regarding secluded beaches to discover. Sea View Villa is a beautiful home with wonderful views of the Atlantic. The home is well kept and very comfortable for a family of 4. I highly recommend the property.

First of all we booked the villa because of the beauiful view of the Atlantic Ocean and the balcony. Also a priority was the fact that it has satellite TV. As we are home bodies having that was a plus. The moment we arrived I knew that was it, we couldn't have selected a better house. Ruth met us upon our arrival, she was warm and hospitable. She went over a few things with us but everything was pretty much straight forward. Upon entering the house it was exactly as described, spacious, clean and everything in its place; just as I like it clutter free. We brought our food with us to prepare our daily meals and everything we needed to do that was there. We had no issues except with the direct TV box, and even though Mrs. Saunders had to leave town that didn't stop the show. She had her neightbor step in to assist and the problem was rectified. Overall we had a great stay at Sea View Villa and though we didn't utilize any of the amenities for the outdoors this time, we will most definitely be back and we highly recommend this house for your future visit to Rainbow Bay, Eleuthera. Time somehow got away fron us with the Hatchet Bay festival going on, but there will be a next time. Thank you Mrs. Saunders for an enjoyable stay and a beautiful house. We look forward to future visits, because we will be back! ❤❤❤

Great house in a great location

  • 5 of 5

We just arrived back home to the states and were very sad to leave our 10-day stay at Ruth's house. She is a great host and went above and beyond to help us out anytime we needed. The house is centrally located so it made exploring the island by car a lot easier. Any future plans to return to Eleuthera will be made with this house in mind and Ruth being our first choice.

Wonderful experience! Loved Sea View Villa!

  • 5 of 5

Sea View Villa was definitely a good choice for our home away from home! It was set up very well, very comfortable, and we didn't lack anything for our stay there, even though the city water was off. Ruth was very thoughtful in making sure the tanks were filled with water from her own cistern, and we never experienced a shortage. The kitchen was well stocked with all the basics, like spices, ketchup, and etc. The open layout of the house was really nice. And the view! Being able to see the Atlantic Ocean out of most of the windows was a real treat, plus we greatly enjoyed the stars at night. We did not try out the kayak and bicycles, but did use the cooler and beach items different times, as well as the grill. Ruth was a very friendly person and made us feel right at home. The location was also very nice, as we had easy access to both the north and south ends of the island without a lot of driving. We really enjoyed the many beaches, Billy and Brenda's Barbeque, Fish Fry in Governor's Harbor, and most of all, watching the sun rise over Lighthouse Beach! We made lots of memories and really, really enjoyed our stay at Eleuthera. We would definitely consider staying here again! Thank you Ruth!!
