"I stayed at this lovely home with my 8 year old son, husband, and mom. We had an absolute blast. First, we had some issues with the home such as the telephone not working and the refrigerator and wifi being out; however, we travel the world and we understood that being on an Island has different expectations from washington DC. So we sat back and just enjoyed the ride. Arthur worked hard to fix the problems and the owners went out of their way to make sure we were taken care of for the issues. Back to the home, we would love to come back to this haven. This was the best beach for us. My husband and I are avid scuba divers (having dove in Bali, Sri Lanka, all over the Carribean), we wanted to get our son comfortable with snorkeling. Could not have picked a better spot. The home is on a very peaceful cove with lots of fish to see in the water. We saw the grouper, huge schools of fish, some rays, a rare bat fish, lobster, tons of crabs. We snorkeled and my son fished all day long. We rented the kayaks and enjoyed kayaking around the cove whenever we pleased. There is a short path around the house that my mother took to get the beach. We spent most of our time at the house. We did drive around the island to visit the beautiful deserted beaches. We mostly cooked at home but had some great meals. We did not get eaten alive by any bugs. Also, the owners were wonderful about answering all of my questions. The home is great for a small family or two couples. It's not fancy but we loved it and would really love to go back. The only issue holding us back is the island airline which is always late and caused us a missed connection. Grocery stores are a bit lacking but we made by with lots of visits to the nearby organic market (amazing homemade bread) and fresh fish from the fish monger (its 1 man in a beaten up dive suit)---what an experience...highly recommend it for those seeking quiet relaxation at your own pace and on island time. Especially for those of you not looking for the Nassau experience, this is the Bahamas many years ago before the tourists took over. We fell in love with Eleuthera at Serenity Cove."
