Recent Ten Bay Beach reviews

  • Quiet seaside escape

    "The Palms looks much as the pictures although no camera on earth adequately captures the amazing shifting blues and greens in the sea! The cottage was perfect for my daughter and myself, we are adventurous and so did not mind seclusion and privacy at the end of our days, and it WAS quiet! We snorkeled right out front (loved the ease of access from the steps and moat!) and saw great coral and fish! We also had rented a car and explored several beaches, with Tippy'''s our final favorite due to simplicity of access and great drinks that we enjoyed on the pink sand beach from the tiki huts at the bottom of the steps! We did get stuck in the sand once so beware! But friendly locals helped us right out of that jam so now it's just a great adventure story! The Palms is a great central location for checking out the island, and accessing groceries, liquor, banks and gas with just a little drive time. We appreciated the wifi at day's end and the ac and ceiling fans too as (big surprise) it's quite HOT in Eleuthera in late June! Thanks to Tim for the rental and to Sue for the car and her lovely hospitality! Do not miss Island Farms for the pineapple salsa and smoked fish...also a good Bloody Mary mix!"

  • Lovely home with fabulous snorkeling

    "We very much enjoyed our stay. The ocean is fabulous and very worth braving the access ladder needed to get to the water. Just an FYI here- it's much easier at high tide. The snorkeling was some of the best on the island-most days we didn't leave, instead just took the kayaks out exploring for more reefs, of which there are plenty. The house is clean and cool and lovely. They owners considerately leave large bottles of shampoo and conditioner, as well as soap, and there are seasonings included with the fully stocked kitchen. No need to pack beach towels, they are provided, as well as some beach chairs. A great place to stay."

  • Fulfillment of a Quest!

    "We stayed at Culmer Cottage 6 days/nights and enjoyed a wonderful, relaxing time in and around Tarpum Bay. The purpose of this trip was to re-visit one part of our honeymoon trip of 45 years ago! We found the village had changed some, but not completely; it still exudes the authentic culture of the Bahamian people, who are very friendly and helpful. We really enjoyed walking around Tarpum Bay, talking with the locals, listening to the "fun and games" by the children outside even after dark. Where can you hear that anymore? That's something back in the 50s! Living in Culmer Cottage during this time was just as comfortable as it could be, with a full kitchen, interesting books to peruse, a patio to enjoy the view of the Bay. We were well taken care of with Kervin and Brenda, the caretakers, and they're adorable grandchildren. When we finally decided to visit Tarpum Bay, Lynn, the owner of the house, was an A+ Helper! She answered all our questions especially about travel. The communication between us was fairly often, either by email or phone, as we are not accomplished long-distance travelers and a little nervous about the flights. But she effectively put our minds at ease. We did not rent a car because neither my husband nor I felt comfortable driving on the "wrong side of the road"!! Even though we missed out on some great adventures because of that decision, our purpose for coming to Tarpum Bay was fulfilled, including a few quiet adventures anyway! So whatever your reason for reading this VRBO website, 'Experience Real Eleuthera', know that you're on the right path for a warm-weather vacation specially tailored for you. You won't be disappointed."

  • PARADISE!!!

    "My husband and I spent 9 days at Beside the Pointe and it was absolute paradise. The cottage exceeded our expectations and the owner takes excellent care of the house and the property. The cottage was very clean and looked like it was brand new. The gardens were spectacular with papayas, mangos, bananas, pineapples and beautiful flowers everywhere. The owner was so nice and helpful in all aspects of planning our trip and he has really thought of everything. He provided snorkeling gear, kayaks, a fishing spear, fish traps and even a cell phone. We loved the secluded outdoor shower with a view of the Caribbean. The screened in porch was an excellent spot to relax and read after a day of playing. The snorkeling at the Pointe was unbelievable and my husband caught fish for dinner almost every night. We never saw another person in the bay. The location and seclusion of the cottage and the spectacular views of the bay make me wish I was still there. We will definitely stay here again!"
