  • Best Eleuthera Beach

    "On the Rocks is a lovely house in a magical location! Perfectly situated on a beautiful rocky point that provides privacy and access to one of the top beaches on the Atlantic side. Pat and Robert have beautifully decorated the house and the layout is perfect for a larger group. We enjoyed preparing meals in the big, well-outfitted kitchen. Between surf and snorkel sessions, we enjoyed lounging on the front patio and lawn. The bedrooms are large and provide comfy beds. We really liked the way that each bedroom had it's own attached bath. This location on Eleuthera is very convenient to Governor's Harbour and Rock Sound. Either township is a quick drive on nice roads. We found some very good snorkeling and caving sites within a 10 minute drive. PROTIP: If the weather is ugly - go visit some cool caves! North Palmetto is a nice settlement. There are a few medical clinics and a few places to get really good Bahamian food. If you walk north on the beach, you can enjoy Tippy's after a nice 20-minute beach walk. If you are VERY LUCKY you might get to meet the owner's 3 cute beach dogs. They visited us twice daily and provided lovely tour guide service on a couple of beach hikes. Overall OTR is a fantastic beach rental! It is well-appointed, well-managed, and priced right. We'll be back..."

  • Great family vacation in Spanish Wells

    "We stayed at the Sea Fan for ten days in June 2016. The charming, spacious cottage was perfect for our family group of seven adults and three children - especially the upstairs bedroom suite is great. The house also has a nice little tropical garden. The only dissapointing news was that the bike and kayak, which were advertised as part of the rental package, were no longer available. The location is convenient with only a few minute walk to the quiet sandy beach, and the harbour on the opposite side of the island. The beach is beautiful, and we had a great evening walk all the way to the other end of the island where the bridge to Russell Island is located. We also had a wedding on the beach. There is also a great outdoor restaurant/bar called "Budda" just across the street, with a well stocked liquor store. One thing to keep in mind is that tap water is not drinkable, at least we were advised against using it as drinking water by a number of locals, as well as our booking agent's office. We also learnt from the locals that drinkable water refills can be purchased at the harbour marine service centre, so we only needed to buy several gallon sized water jugs once. This was greatly appreciated, as unfortunately no waste whatsoever gets recycled on the island. We all enjoyed every minute of our time in Spanish Wells. Is is perfect for those of us who much prefer a unique small island community to commercial resorts. Besides being beautiful, the ocean is warm and shallow, and the two babies we had with us loved it. All local people were very friendly and helpful, so planning trips and other activities was quite easy, including a fun snorkelling/fishing trip with Captain Ron. We also could not do without all the helpful information and assistance from Lorraine and Anna-Claire at the real estate office."

  • A Magical Week at SeaWalk

    "This property was as advertised. Sea Walk is situated on Banks Road, a short drive into Governors Harbor (where you can enjoy a number of modern conveniences) and yet secluded enough that you felt somewhat alone in the world. A short walk down a path led you to one of the prettiest beaches in the world, where it was unusual to see more than one other family. The beach was the start and end of each day; quiet strolls with a drink in hand either with the kids, or while they stayed back and frolicked in the nice pool and hot tub. While on the beach, you could body surf or occasionally catch the local ray swimming by... quite a sight. The house was well appointed, with nice high ceilings for good air flow, a great entertainment center upstairs for movies or sports, and a dining area on the main floor that easily accommodated all 10 of us. The bedrooms worked well; we had 2 couples, and between us 3 boys and 3 girls. The boys had one room with ample sleeping, as did the girls, and the couples had nice master suites. Tepa, the owner's representative, visited every morning to make sure we had everything we needed. We quickly became good friends with him, and all adored him. He made sure there was fresh water to drink, that the pool and hot tub were clean, and provide directions for our excursions. He even delivered the sea kayaks and paddleboards to a beach 10 miles away, and picked them up. He also did a wonderful bonfire for us on the beach our last night. We hired a chef for 4 nights (Pauline Bethel). We figured it would be more affordable than going out (in the end, it absolutely was more affordable), but we did not count on how much we grew to love her and her sister and husband. They became like family. She shopped for the groceries, cooked, and cleaned up, and we also learned a ton about the island from her and Maxine and Edmond. Governors Harbor is an ideal spot to explore the island. Lots of local flavor, and convenient to go north (to Harbor Island) or south (to Rock Sound and Tarpum Cay). The owners of the house (Skip and Jackeline) were responsive and wonderful. The person through whom we communicated pre-arrival (Matthew Simon) and his crew gave great advice on rental cars, chefs, and what to do on the island. We can unequivocally say that we would do this vacation over again in a heartbeat; it was nothing short of spectacular."
