  • Secluded property in paradise

    "We really enjoyed our time on Windermere Island. The house is very nice and the bedrooms are spacious! Each has access to a bathroom including the single twin bedroom. The living area is open and nice for enjoying family. The home is nicely furnished and had lots of books, games, snorkels, and fins. There were lots of beach towels as well. We hired a chef, Kaynell Scavella, to prepare our meals and she was delightful. We planned each meal in advance and the food was amazing! We all miss Kaynell and Pebbles and the conch fritters. You can take the pool chairs to the beach - but it's not easy. So, we rented beach chairs and extra kayaks. The double kayak at Hamilton House is very nice. However, it's not recommended that you use these at the beach in front of the house as the water is rough and not as smooth as the Savannah Sound. Bobbette's (caretaker for the home) husband was able to take these over to the sound where the waters are calm, beautiful, and full of sea turtles. We really enjoyed kayaking there each day and it's a short bike ride away. The beach is very private (I think we saw 3 families the entire week). The home is situated near other cottage like homes that flank each side of Hamilton house down towards the beach (not visible in the picture of the property). I was thankful that we had a car as there are so many beautiful places to explore on Eleuthera. We spent one morning at Oceanview Farm near Governor's Harbour riding horses next to the ocean. I highly recommend this if you love horses. It was a treat for the group. We also hired Donald (Eleuthera Tours) to take us out to the Marker Cays. We snorkeled and found lots of sea biscuits and conch shells there. The boat was very small, but it was very nice and perfect for our family. We rode our bikes each night over to a dock at the end of the street to watch the sunset each night which was our favorite way end to each day. The home has good wifi and we only had one power outage (which is very common in the Bahamas). Fortunately, it didn't last very long. We traveled over to Harbour Island ($5/per person) for the day which was really fun. We rented a golf cart ($50) there and enjoyed lobster quesadilla's at Sip Sip. Finally, Matthew Simon (property manager), was extremely responsive and provided lots tips and helpful information to make our vacation truly special. If you are looking for a secluded piece of paradise - you will enjoy Hamilton House."

  • beautifully appointed in great location

    "Our group of four adults and two tweens were a perfect fit for this lovely home. The bay side location is a block from the water taxis and all the restaurants and shops in Dunmore Town. While folks have their preferences for one side or the other, I like the bay side as it is less blustery at night on the verandas etc. We used golf carts to zip around (mostly to the grocery and out at evenings to resorts and restaurants and the ocean side) but much of the island is walkable. Each morning we walked to the opposite side of the island (5 minutes--a minute by golf cart) and did 4 mile beach walks -- heaven! We runned speed boats most days too. So much to do and the water is always beckoning. Andrew's home offers many areas for enjoyment indoor and out. Nice views, comfortable nooks, private and lush. The kids were in the pool everyday. The adults enjoyed cocktails on the mid-level and topside perches. Nice breezes made for perfect nights. We cooked in for breakfast and several dinners which is a money saver as the restaurants are pricey. The kitchen has much of what you need--not gourmet but better than most rentals for sure and a water cooler. The beds were extremely comfortable and the bedroom AC units made for a good night's rest. Daily light cleaning service and on-island house manager were appreciated. Truly a great experience and beautiful home and a big contributor to how much we loved Harbour Island. We will rent this same place when we return (which I hope is soon!)"

  • Picture Perfect

    "Being from Florida, my husband and I had the idea that the Bahamas was just a tourist cruise ship destination until we visited last year. Boy were we wrong! I couldn't believe how close the flight is and we had never been there. We have traveled to a lot of beautiful beaches but this one tops the list! Touchstone Cottage is literally steps to the beach. The first time I saw it when I walked up the dune my heart melted and I became instantly relaxed. The water is turquoise blue and the sand looks like a peachy pink color in the sun's light! The water was refreshing and gentle and the best part is most of the time we had the beach to ourselves. Having the beach access is priceless. The Cottage itself was also so adorable and very private. It has a large open living room and kitchen and the two rooms on each side has it's own bathroom. I highly recommend renting a golf cart (easily arranged by the property manager) to get around the island. It's nice to be just a short distance from town, you really feel more like a local. The town also has all the conveniences you need- grocery store, liquor store and local restaurants. I highly recommend eating at Aquapazza at sunset- you'll fall in love all over again! My husband and I were with another couple but the Cottage is also good for a family of 4 or for a girls trip. Everything can be arranged very easily by the property manager, even getting a car for the day to go to Eleuthera. I am so nostalgic about the trip and hope to go back there again. The Cottage and the town are truly magic!"

  • Perfect place to stay in Eleuthera

    "The place is as advertised : Just perfect. Clean, a real house where you could live all year long with all comfort... and you wish you could considering the terrific view from the terrace. We just loved it and the kids also. Central to visit the island. And the car that comes with the house is the thing you need and it's very easy (you're picked up at the airport, driven to at the end of your stay - like a star). En Français : Vraiment un coin de paradis, très propre, bien placé. On se pince pour y croire tous les matins au réveil."
