"Heavana" is a rustic, fully solar-powered, eco-cottage set amongst the Palmettos. Second floor balcony looks over Carey's Pond and a dreamy jungle setting. Some of Eleuthera's best beaches are just a five minute drive away. A perfect get away for a couple or small family who desire an escape to peaceful, simple living.
Because Heavana is solar powered, energy conservation is a must (leave your hair dryers behind)! There is no television set, but we have Wifi. The second bedroom is separated from the main bedroom by a 3/4 wall (see pictures).
  • Sarah’s place is truly amazing, everything is custom built with the exception of maybe a few chairs, and the interior is very tasteful and it shows how much time and effort she put into not just the build out, but also the interior decoration, even the paint scheme reminded us of the Atlantic and Caribbean; and the craftsmanship just shows through in everything, especially liked the little conch shell hand pull on the bathroom closet. Also was one of the cleanest places we have ever stayed in, not to mention the small comforts I really appreciated like down pillows, a soft top mattress, and good toilet paper. The breeze is so great for sleeping, the upstairs deck is great, this was without a doubt the most bang for our buck while staying in Eleuthera, and Sarah was so nice and pleasant to deal with and very responsive. Thanks so much!!!

  • Heavana was perfect for us, Sarah was amazing - answered any questions we had about the island as well as making helpful suggestions. Highly recommend for anyone looking to have a relaxing time in Eleuthera. Location was great, easy to access all parts of the island with plenty to do and see close by. Close to great beaches, bars, grocery stores and eateries. Extremely pleased 👍

  • Awesome location for a beautiful cottage. Will definitely stay here again if I ever come back!

    Markku2020-02-12T00:00:00Z
  • Really quiet place, clean. For the price, it is perfect. You need rent a car, it’s not in the village...

    Suzanne2020-01-28T00:00:00Z
  • I have stayed at many airbnbs and never one more charming than this. It is walking distance from some of the most beautiful beaches; the place is quiet, spotless (even the towels are folded and stacked in an attractive way), charming, and soul-nourishing. Sarah was helpful with ANYTHING we needed and shared with us about the little gems nearby. , Staying in a place like this, even for one night, catalyzes a level of relaxation (and fantasies of moving down here) to a rare degree. I look forward to coming back repeatedly, if Fates allow. Plus I love that the place is off the grid and low impact on the planet....

    Claudia2019-03-10T00:00:00Z
  • We had a great stay in Sarah’s cozy tropical paradise. We loved sitting on the balcony with a drink and enjoying the view! Sarah was a great host and the cottage was clean and had everything we needed. We will definitely be back!

    Ariel2019-03-02T00:00:00Z
  • BEAUTIFUL JUNGLE OASIS!! We had an amazing stay at Sarahs, if you are looking for a secluded, simplistic lifestyle for your stay this Airbnb is perfect for you. Some of my favourite things were the nature sounds and natural light in the morning. Beach and community is just minutes away too! If I’m in the area again this is where I’ll be staying :)

    North Palmetto Point, Central Eleuthera, Bahamas

    Poponi cottage is a private studio apartment 100 paces from a mile-long, deserted pink-sand beach. Surrounded by beautiful gardens, Poponi is located on the second floor with a garage beneath, and has views of the Atlantic from its balcony.
    Poponi’s kitchen is fully equipped with a gas range, full size refrigerator, microwave, coffee maker, blender, and toaster. The sleeping area is a queen size bed and a full bath with walk-in shower. The comfortable living area has a TV, DVD, cable & WiFi. The double glass doors open to a balcony with chairs, grill and outdoor dining table. There is an outdoor shower downstairs. The cottage is fully air conditioned.
    Poponi Cottage is centrally located near the settlement of North Palmetto Point which has several grocery shops, pharmacy and restaurants. The historic town of Governor's Harbour, the main town on the island, is a ten minute drive from the property. Governors Harbour has grocery stores, banks with ATM’s, gift shops, liquor stores, dive shop, bakery, and half a dozen excellent restaurants. One or another of the restaurants/bars will have live music almost every night of the week. You can also buy the fresh catch of the day to grill at home from the town dock.
  • Rick and Missy were terrific hosts. Poponi cottage and the fabulous adjoining beach is likely as close to heaven as I will see! If you are the type who enjoys American style resorts with their pampered offerings, Eleuthera has those to offer, however for my wife and me, the solitude of our Poponi experience, splendor or the unspoiled beaches and turquoise, crystal clear waters and ability to meet some of the most interesting locals hit our sweet spot. If I could offer and suggestions to Missy or Rick I would... truth is they nailed it! Our 10 days could not have been more pleasurable and memorable; just wish they didn't pass by so fast. We can't wait for our return visit!

    Stephen2020-02-16T00:00:00Z
  • We had a terrific stay at the Poponi cottage. So private and beautiful setting. The garden and the long forever beach is spectacular! Our morning walks and swims were just amazing right in front of the cottage. It is a perfect amenity for a couple and the hospitality is wonderful. The hosts are very sensitive to the privacy of their guests which we appreciated.

    Ginette2020-02-01T00:00:00Z
  • This cottage is amazing! Steps from the beach and in the central part of the island- easy to go north or south to explore. The owners are incredibly helpful and kind as well. We also loved having a “pet” for the week- Ednis the cat was super friendly and kept us company when we sunbathed on the deck! Highly recommend this property to anyone!

    Lauren2020-01-25T00:00:00Z
  • Absolutely beautiful! My wife and I spent part of our honeymoon here and completely loved it! It’s like a paradise - the gardens are manicured and lovely, it’s just a few steps to the beach (we fell asleep to the sound of the waves) and the cottage is just right with everything needed for a sweet and beautiful time. The beach here is perfect, private, clear and safe-feeling, and the hangout areas with hammocks and benches are like a haven. Missy was very hospitable, friendly, and helpful, making our stay easy and fun! We may be back and are happy to recommend this place to our loved ones. Thanks Missy!

    David2019-11-26T00:00:00Z
  • Poponi exceeded my expections, the landscaping on the property and the walk to the ocean was like a dream come true. You can tell that it has taken years to develope the property to the point where it is now. Poponi is very well kept and the trees and flowers are stunning. It really surprised me how beautiful the landscape was. The cottage came with everything we needed, along with beach chairs, umbrella, coolers... everything you need for a day at the beach as well. We would definitely recommend and come stay at poponi again!

    Adam2019-05-25T00:00:00Z
  • Lovely place on an amazing island. We loved our time in Eleuthera. The hosts were great and made great efforts to address anything we needed. We would return here!

    Timothy2019-05-14T00:00:00Z
  • Poponi Cottage is a dream. The location just cannot be beat and Poponi beach is one of the nicest beaches on the island. The Cottage is well appointed and the owners provide all information that you could possibly need, along with some staples such as coffee and filtered water. We had an issue with the air conditioner that was fixed promptly upon notifying the owners, and they were easy to reach. Highly recommended!

    Gordon2019-04-15T00:00:00Z
  • We came to Eleuthera to reset. Our work keeps getting busier and busier and finding the time to relax together has become a priority. Poponi delivered exactly what we needed. Upon arrival, we discussed whether we wanted to run around the island, exploring this and that but ultimately decided we had everything we wanted right here. The beach is beautiful with blue ocean waves and a tropical breeze to boot. I typically enjoy reading on the beach but at Poponi I was so unplugged from reality that all I needed was the sound of the waves and my worries a million miles away.

    North Palmetto Point, Central Eleuthera, Bahamas

    Welcome to your very own secluded paradise. Begin your day gazing out over the turquoise waters of the Atlantic Ocean from your expansive terrace high atop your private sand dune. .
    Soak up the warm rays of the sun while taking in the unparalleled vista before you. Or, meander down your private path and let your toes sink into the soft pink sand of your pristine beach. Wander the shoreline stretching for miles in both directions. Don't be surprised if yours are the only footprints you see. Dip into the crystalline clear water or if you feel energized by your stunning surroundings, swim the length of the beach before breakfast. Protective coral reefs allow only warm gentle waves to lap your shore. After breakfast don your snorkel and mask and explore the many reefs right in front of your luxury beach house. Discover colourful tropical fish and lush corals. Or, pack a picnic and head off to explore the countless spectacular beaches that line both sides of your island. On your way home pick up freshly caught fish or lobster, from the local fisherman, and freshly picked organic veggies from the local farmer, to prepare for dinner in your gourmet kitchen. Or, try one of the fabulous nearby restaurants, only minutes from your door. Marvel at the sun setting across the harbour while swaying to the rhythm of island music. At the end of the day, take a minute to revel in the trillions of stars high above your secluded piece of paradise. Then fall into your king-size bed and drift off, lulled to sleep by the gentle roll of the surf below. Amenities include air conditioning (in the bedrooms only, not in the great room), WIFI, satellite TV, and a gas grill. Both the living area and dining area have 20 foot ceilings with ceiling fans. Pets are considered at Tourmaline. Please contact us in advance for approval. The pet fee is $125 per pet. We want you to feel at home while staying at Tourmaline.
  • Home beach and staff were perfect

    Frank2020-02-08T00:00:00Z
  • The house is located in a dream place, on top of a small hill. Access to the beach is made from the house by a private road. A minute short. The place is idyllic and the house has all the comforts. If someone wants to go to Bahamas, go to Eleuthera and Tourmaline House. You will not regret!

    Julio2019-08-17T00:00:00Z
  • Incredible views! Super clean, comfortable, & well stocked house! Accessible and very accommodating hosts (Perry was amazing, and the lasagna and wine were generous welcome gifts - we loved both!) Beautiful island... beware the bugs, though! We had an amazingly relaxed vacation! Thanks so much!

    Corinne2018-12-22T00:00:00Z
  • Tourmaline is a fantastic vacation getaway. Amazing views complemented by comfortable, spacious and well appointed amenities, this secluded and off the beaten path location was perfect!

    Zack2018-11-24T00:00:00Z
  • Fantastic stay at Tourmaline ! Highly recommend for a quiet respite with beautiful views of ocean and gorgeous beach with quick access. The house, grounds and pool were impeccable. Would go back in a heartbeat. ❤️

    Kat2018-03-24T00:00:00Z
  • Awesome stay, like a destination resort with the feel of home. Clean, spectacular views, well appointed and great communication. Highly recommend.

    John2018-02-11T00:00:00Z
  • This home is as advertised with wonderful views thanks to the elevation of the property. Be aware that if traveling with persons who have any limited mobility that the walk down to the beach and back can be challenging but the trade off for the views is more than worth it.The kitchen is well equipped and everything works which is not always the case in the islands. The rental process from reservation to check/in on island and needs during our stay were quickly and cordially handled. We were very pleased with our stay and recommend the property highly.

    Governor's Harbour, Central Eleuthera, Bahamas

    Romantic studio-style cottage located directly on the beach, in Governor's Harbour. The master bedroom features a comfortable king-size bed, which offers spectacular ocean views, and double French doors that open onto a private front porch where guests can enjoy their morning coffee (while watching the sun rise over the Atlantic) or an evening glass of wine while listening to waves break on the beach.
    Guests can walk to the nearby "Tippy's" Restaurant along the beachfront - just a short 5 minute stroll down the pink-sand beach. Leon Levy Preserve, a nearby nature sanctuary, is only a mere 3-5 minutes walk from the cottage. The cottage contains a futon, perfect for couples travelling with a child. A travel crib and/or high chair can also be included with the rental, at no extra charge. Amenities include Air-conditioning, Wifi, Iron/Ironing Board, Washer/Dryer, Kitchenette with microwave, coffee machine, toaster oven, electric kettle, apartment-size stove, and more! Shampoo/conditioner and soap are provided in the en-suite bathroom, as well as a hair dryer. A two person, inflatable kayak, is also included with this delightful rental - as well as beach chairs, towels, an umbrella and cooler bag... perfect for relaxing on the beach!
  • I would give the cottage & Amanda Jane’s welcoming property 10 stars if I could! My husband & I stayed in the cottage on the beach, & we couldn’t have been pleased with the stylish & clean space, equipped with anything we could have asked for! The beach a few steps from the front door felt very private & one of the most beautiful on the island. The location of the house was perfect for trying out new restaurants (Tippys, La Bougainvillae, Buccaneers, Da Perk, etc), & we were perfectly located to try out dozens of Caribbean & Atlantic beaches. If you’re looking for a romantic getaway with privacy & convenience to the best beaches & restaurants, this is your spot!! Amanda Jane was so helpful & available if we needed anything, & she pointed us to the her favorite spots on the island as well. We can’t wait to come back to the cottage!

  • Amazing place to stay highly recommended beautiful

  • The best ever

    Seth2019-12-13T00:00:00Z
  • Jane's place is absolutely perfect. Amanda the property manager was extremely friendly, knowledgeable and helpful. We even crossed paths at Bucaneer's once and she took the time to say hello and give us sightseeing advice. Jane's friend Joy was really helpful when we had a minor issues with the water. Jane's home is conveniently located near the town in Governors Harbor. The beach is wonderful, though one the windy days you need to be a strong swimmer. You'll have the magnificent beach mostly to yourself, if you are looking for a beach to unwind and forget the world you would be hard pressed to do better!

    Xavier2019-11-16T00:00:00Z
  • Jane’s place was lovely! My husband and I spent our honeymoon there and it was absolutely perfect. It’s right on the beach with beautiful views and a nearly private spot on the ocean. A restaurant called Tippy’s is just a 5 minute walk down the beach and it was amazing! We ate there bunches. It’s also a 10 minute drive from Governor’s Harbor where you’ll find more restaurants, a small market for groceries, a gift shop and gas station. Would definitely stay here again!

    Hannah2019-11-09T00:00:00Z
  • Jane’s place is very clean and beautiful view. I enjoy myself

    Patrick2019-10-25T00:00:00Z
  • We have experienced Jane as very supportive, polite and responsive host. We enjoyed staying at this beautiful, calm and quiet place. We recommend this cottage as well as Jane as a host.

    Juergen2019-10-18T00:00:00Z
  • The accommodation was just fantastic! Right on the long sandy beach was deserted. You are completely undisturbed in the beautiful nature and has in the great accommodation just everything you need. We can only recommend it to anyone looking for something special. Jane our host was very nice and the whole check in and check out worked out perfectly. We like to come back to this wonderful place. Greetings from Switzerland!

    Poponi House is an elegant beach estate built by Hon. Edward Brabazon Meade in the early 1940’s. Meade was the son of the 4th Earl of Clanwilliam, admiral of the British fleet and advisor to Queen Victoria. The Meade family were direct descendants of William the Conqueror.
    Poponi is a two-acre beachfront estate located on the beach that was named after it, the mile-long, pink-sand Poponi Beach. Poponi was picked by Caribbean Travel & Life as one of the 20 best beaches in the Caribbean. The house is 50 paces from the beach, set among beautiful grounds landscaped with palms and flowering trees. Poponi House offers expansive views of the Atlantic from both bedrooms, which are located at the front of the house. The master bedroom, with en-suite bathroom and king-size bed, has French doors that open onto a porch with ocean breezes. The second bedroom has the same incredible views and access to the screened porch that runs along the south side of the house. The second bedroom has twin beds that can be converted into a comfortable king size bed. The bath for this bedroom is located right across the hall from it. There is also an outdoor shower at Poponi for guests who prefer showering “en plein air” in such a private setting. Poponi has two living areas - the first has a beautiful wooden tray ceiling with fans and comfortable furniture. The cable TV, DVD, video library, chromecast etc. are located in this room. It has doors leading to the screened porch. The second living area offers ocean views and breezes, beautiful natural lighting, comfortable seating, and doors out onto the screened porch. There is also a dining table for eight. The kitchen is fully equipped with new stainless steel gas range, two refrigerators, dishwasher, microwave, and views of the great banyan tree in the backyard. It has a door leading out to the bougainvillea covered trellis with dining table beneath and small courtyard with a gas grill. The screened porch on the south side of Poponi offers spectacular views and peaceful breezes of the Atlantic. There is a furnished cabana down by the beach which provides shade and privacy. Poponi has many amenities to make your stay as comfortable as possible. Amenities include air conditioning in both bedrooms and one living room, WiFi, TV, cable, DVD, stereo system, board games, beach chairs and hammocks by the beach and under the Banyan tree. For larger groups, there is a studio cottage a short walk from the house which can be included for $185 per night. Poponi offers old world charm in a peaceful and relaxing setting.
    Poponi house is centrally located near the settlement of North Palmetto Point which has several grocery shops, pharmacy and restaurants. The historic town of Governor's Harbour, the main town on the island, is a ten minute drive from the property. Governors Harbour has grocery stores, banks with ATM’s, gift shops, liquor stores, dive shop, bakery, and half a dozen excellent restaurants. One or another of the restaurants/bars will have live music almost every night of the week. You can also buy the fresh catch of the day to grill at home from the town dock.
  • This place is absolutely fantastic. The garden has access to a gorgeous beach which is basically deserted any time of the day. The house is big and very comfy. The only thing missing is a washing machine for the clothes (which can be a bit complicated especially when you travel with a baby) Otherwise our 2 weeks stay have been a dream and Rick has been really reactive to any questions we had. Another great thing is a big notebook with all the tips and adresses at disposal in the house. You have everything in it and certainly don’t need anything else to explore the island.

    Stéphane2020-01-16T00:00:00Z
  • The house was fabulous! Simple walk down to the best beach I have ever stayed on! Beds were comfortable and clean. Great sheets and pillows. The sitting areas are large and well appointed. There is cable, but we used the Chromcast and watched Netflix. Keep in mind, the internet is not reliable, so bring a good book and a pack of cards. The screened porch is nice for drinking coffee in the morning and planning the day. There were beach chairs provided, and snorkel gear. It's a place you walk into and say "I could live here." As always, it takes a while to find what you need on an island. The house has a fully equipped kitchen, and cooking in saves a ton of money here. The Shell station in Governors Harbor should be your first stop for staples, toilet tissue, paper towels and such. Bring cash! Most places on the island say they take take charge cards, but if the internet is out, which it usually is, then it's cash only. That includes the gas. There are ATM's, but the fees will run around $9 per hundred. Da Perk, next door, has muffins and coffee for breakfast. Several reviews I saw mention Bacchus for supplies, but I found it expensive and not well stocked. Then find Island Farm, just past Palmetto Point, for fresh produce. They have fresh bread on Tuesday and Friday, but get there early. I bought the fresh water here, as well as other beverages. They open at 9:00am. That's also the best place for chicken and other proteins. I recommend the spiced whole bird; split and placed on the grill. Takes around 25 minutes to cook. Hit Tippy"s for lunch or dinner. It's right on the beach, about ten minutes away by car. Their conch fritters are worth the trip. The Buccaneer, in GH, is also worth the drive. La Bougainvillea is closer, and walkable up the beach, but it's very expensive. Drive on the left. Never turn on the A/C. Don't drink the tap water. The locals are very friendly, so always talk the time to stop and talk.

    Richard2019-12-28T00:00:00Z
  • This was a true vacation. Coming from New York City where we experience noise and speed daily, we felt truly recharged when we left. The house is steps from the most beautiful beach and so much privacy. There was hardly anyone there. On windy days, we drove to the Caribbean side where the water is always flat and so beautiful. The house has a wonderful patio with a big wooden table and a grill, and in the front there is a hammock under a big beautiful tree, which we used on daily basis to have our little toddler nap. The house is perfect for eating al fresco, (that said, lots of flies at times) considering that the restaurants on the island are not anything to write home about. The only restaurant we would recommend is Fishbone. Great atmosphere, great hosts, good food. We loved taking the small path from the house to the beach, doing our daily exercise in the morning and in the afternoon walking left for about 10min to La Bougainvillea hotel where you can get great drinks and pizza on Thursdays at the bar and just enjoy the view (this is not to be confused with the 10min walk to the right to the Unique village resort). For good grocery take a lovely ride down the Banks road to Bacchus. The Banks road has beautiful homes and the ride is very enjoyable. For great bread and organic greens go to the Island Farm. 5min drive from the house. Expect long lines. Get there early. Probably our favorite place to go to. For laundry, there is a great clean laundromat in the Governor's Harbor. Very affordable, so clean and such nice people. Just ask around in the village how to get there. Overall, we loved our 2 week stay at Rick's house. The home has everything that you need. Comfortable beds and decorated with love and care. We highly recommend and hope to go back!

    Tanja2019-01-04T00:00:00Z
  • The Poponi House is spectacular. Don't expect to rent a house on Eleuthera and come away feeling like you stayed at the Four Seasons but if you are looking for a comfortable house with great amenities in an unbelievable location, it's tough to beat. The beach alone is worth the price of admission. We fell asleep listening to the sounds of the waves (the beds are all very comfortable too!) and woke to the sun coming up over the Atlantic. While we felt like we were on our own slice of deserted island, note that there is a small cottage behind the house on the same property that was rented by two different groups while we were there. We would definitely rent again - a wonderful place on a wonderful island.

    Justin2018-04-07T00:00:00Z
  • Eleuthera is paradise and very peaceful. A perfect destination for those seeking peace. The service around Matt, Tara and Missy is perfect, anytime again.

    Michael2018-03-29T00:00:00Z
  • It was the owner that we dealt with, Rick and Missy, and there were terrific. It is a lovely place and we were wanting for nothing.

  • Loved the location first and foremost! Super cute cottage, very tastefully decorated; I really enjoyed waking up in this little piece of paradise every morning. This cottage is centrally located so it was easy to see the whole island from such a great location without very long drives either direction for day trips. The cottage is offset from the main road and tucked away with beautiful landscape. Kitchen was nice to cook meals which I did so often. Comfortable bed, hot shower, and AC was wonderful after a day at the beach. I felt completely safe as a solo female traveler staying here. The cottage has a few other small cottages on the property it but not enough to create noise or make the place feel less quaint or private. I could sit outside on the deck and have coffee and be completely alone however I was mostly out exploring the island and this was a perfect place to come home to every day. I loved being so close to Palmetto as I could run and walk daily just up the road and get off Queen's highway easily for awesome excursion to the beach and up Banks road. John is a wonderful person and host. This place is perfect if you are looking for a clean, cozy, private, quiet getaway centrally located on the island.

    Tracy2020-01-06T00:00:00Z
  • Eleuthera is a paradise of pure and rural nature. Far away from party and too many tourists we enjoyed our stay to the fullest. Also John’s little cottage was a dream - beautiful interior style with a lot of details and a well equipped kitchen (which we used a lot since there aren‘t a lot of restaurants). John is a very warm-hearted host with an amazing vision and his lovely co-hosts - the ducks - were wunderfull. If you look for a quiet trip and very friendly locals, go to Eleuthra.

    Malin2019-03-14T00:00:00Z
  • Amazing island getaway! John is a great host and will make sure everything is just as it should be for your whole stay. Beaches are well within reach, a bit of a walk but an easy drive. The grounds are beautiful (there is a plant nursery on site), and the cottage has plenty of space and is, at the same time, incredibly comfortable. John has put a lot of work into caring for the place and it shows. The inn is also a short drive from Governor's Harbour, which has some of the best food and beaches on the island. Overall, I would absolutely recommend this place. It looks just as wonderful as advertised.

    William2019-03-10T00:00:00Z

  • We stayed for 5 weeks at John's place and really enjoyed our stay. The cottage got everything you need and it is surrounded by beautiful plants so you feel like being in paradise. It is located on the Queens Highway and it is a 40 minute walk to the Atlantic ocean side and a 30 minute walk to the Caribbean ocean side (or 5 minute drive each way). Governors Harbour is a 10 minute drive from the cottage where you can get everything you need. Palmetto Point is only a 15 minute walk from the cottage and it is a really cute small village where you also can get some groceries. John is very welcoming and super friendly, giving useful tips, offering to organize a rental car and maybe even giving you a ride, etc. John was more of a friend than a host to us. We would come back to John's place any time.

    Anna Sophie2018-11-15T00:00:00Z
  • Our stay in Duck's Inn was amazing. It is located on a beautiful lush green property, with two wonderful cats and ducks living there, which makes it very very special. After spending time there I can say that Eleuthera is not the only hidden gem of the Bahamas :) The inside of the house was super clean and gorgeous, it looked like an expensive hotel. John did an impressive job decorating the place, with beautiful paintings on the walls. John is the nicest host ever, he truly made us feel like family. He brought us mangos on our first day, and helped with lots of things during our stay. We transferred to Duck's Inn from another airbnb, and John was so understanding and helpful! We were super lucky to find his place available for when we needed it and to meet John :) Duck's Inn is located about 40 minutes away walking from Poponi beach (or probably a 5 minute drive), and is only about 10 km away (very short drive) from French Leave and Twin Coves beaches. I highly recommend Duck's Inn for when you visit Eleuthera. We will definitely stay there when we come back to Eleuthera!

  • Absolutely loved Rose Manor Cottage. We have been going to Eleuthera for years and have never stayed in town. We had a great time being right in community. The deck off of the bedroom was amazing and we spent all our time there when we were at the house! Dina was a great host and was very responsive before our arrival. Anne, the property manager was awesome and responded to any questions immediately. Can’t wait to return!! Thank you Dina and Anne! Robin

    Robin2020-03-05T00:00:00Z
  • Dina's place is in a great location, walking distance to everything. This was our second time renting and is always clean, great view from the deck and has all the basics you need for two people.

    Robin2020-02-25T00:00:00Z
  • Super clean, comfortable and very homey!! Best AirBnB I have stayed in. Great location, amazing views and will be going back!!

    Erin2020-01-31T00:00:00Z
  • Excellent location if you don’t mind being in the center of a lot of hubbub which we loved! Absolutely most beautiful balcony which we ate all our meals on. Would 100% stay there again!!!!!

  • We would definitely recommend this property. This house is extremely clean, welcoming and very well located in a quiet area of Governor's Harbor. The terrace allows us to watch the sunset. On foot, we can reach grocery stores, restaurants and the superb French Leave beach. The host Dîna, is always available when needed. She quickly answers our questions and is a caregiver. We will return to this house without any hesitation.

  • The Rose Cottage is a perfect place if you want to live in and become part of a wonderful neighborhood in Governor's Harbor. Groceries, coffee, good food, liquor stores - all walkable. I have visited several islands in the Bahamas and return over and over for the people, and the Rose Cottage neighborhood did not disappoint; they completely embraced us. The Buccaneer is our favorite place for very good food, and they provided the musical back drop most of the day and evening. Karen, Khris, Crystal and the entire crew always welcomed us with a smile and laughs. We even came to know and have a wonderul experience with the Bucaneer kitty. Ann Bethel, the property manager was helpful and responsive to our questions and needs. We did get some great laughs with her too. I could have stayed on the deck of the Rose Cottage reading for weeks, but we did venture out to see the entire island. Strongly suggest a car and Stanton was a great tip from Dina. We went from the Southern most point to the northern most, but I have to say, the closest beach, French Leave, might have been my favorite. It is close to Rose Cottage and amazingly beautiful. I could go on and on about the week at the Rose Cottage. It was a wonderful week, and we will return. I strongly recommend the Rose Cottage and Dina's hospitality to anyone looking for this kind of experience. Thank you to all!

    Katherine2019-12-11T00:00:00Z
  • Great spot, everything you need for a relaxing holiday. Easy walk from the ferry if that is how you are arriving. Love hanging out on the upper deck and watching the sunset. Right across the street from a great restaurant. Would definitely return.

    Very quiet, serene and friendly.
  • We had such a wonderful stay at the lighthouse! We spent the week being beach bums- spending all of our time on the beach and cooking at home in the evenings. But the house is also well positioned to nearby shops and restaurants. The beach is so secluded, we nearly had the beach to ourselves on many days! The house is exactly as described in the listing- a well equipped kitchen, tv and dvd player, excellent wifi, a large back patio overlooking the beach, and a beautiful view of the ocean! I also really loved the lighthouse and nautical decor- the careful attention to lighting made the house feel very homey in the evenings.

    Elise2020-02-22T00:00:00Z
  • We so enjoyed our stay!! A lovely home on the ocean. Bed was comfortable. Pretty view from the bedroom. Large patio facing the sea. Well equipped kitchen. Fresh flowers were a nice touch!!!

    Gretta2020-01-21T00:00:00Z
  • This was our second stay at the lighthouse. We love it here! The location CAN NOT be beat. It's a convenient, central spot on the island and close to Governor's Harbor, restaurants and grocery stores. The beach at the house is one of the most beautiful on the island and most days you'll have it all to yourself. Communication is great. Mr. Nixon is always quick to respond with any questions or issues. We will return to the lighthouse, hopefully again and again. Thank you!

    Nancy2019-07-04T00:00:00Z
  • Even better than we expected! How often do you get to stay in a real working lighthouse?! The view from every room (except one bedroom with 2 twin beds) is of the ocean. The colors of the water change with each hour of the day as the angle of the sun changes. Numerous reefs are just offshore, and the sand right at the bottom of the steps is the famous pink sand (and so soft that in places you just sink in ankle-deep). The house is clean and well maintained other than a leak in the roof in the dining room which we were told will be fixed soon - but in all honesty, this isn't a luxury resort island, it is a private home on a remote island and you should calibrate expectations accordingly, so in that light this is a fantastic place. The location in the middle of the island is well-suited to exploring - when we weren't just sitting on the beach outside, we took road trips up to the north end of the island one day and then down to the south end of the island the next. It is also fairly close to town and some good dining (Tippy's and La Bougainvillea) but you definitely need a vehicle and make sure it is an SUV or truck - most of the roads on the island are unpaved, including the last few legs to get to this house (you could make it to the lighthouse with a sedan, but there are many other roads on the island that you'll be happy to have a larger vehicle for). David was very attentive in the planning and his property manager (Arthur) is charming and very helpful - we rented an SUV from him and spoke to him a few times prior to arrival and then when we landed and on departure; he left us our space but always answered quickly every time I reached out. We would happily stay there again.

    Lewis2019-05-05T00:00:00Z
  • The location of the lighthouse was great. Close to town and stores. You absolutely need a high clearance vehicle to get here. The beach was beautiful and so relaxing! The lighthouse was spacious and the layout of the bedrooms and bathrooms gives you privacy. We went to a few beaches, but still liked the beach at the lighthouse the most. The only minor issue we had was trying to find the house when we first got into town. After calling David and Mr. Nixon, we were able to find it very easily. We would definitely stay again!

    Kou2019-04-30T00:00:00Z
  • Very nice spacious house on a bluff overlooking the ocean. Lighthouse part is cool--our son loved it--but you really don't even notice it from inside. The beach is beautiful with good swimming at high tide. A quick walk north past some rock formations takes you to a wonderful protected swimming area. House location off of Banks road is great for easy navigation north and south of the island. Two great restaurants close by are Tippy's and La Bougainvillea. Easy access to Governor's Harbour. Loved our stay here.

    Tyler2019-04-23T00:00:00Z
  • The lighthouse is situated in a really great spot. The beach out front is beautiful, but there were only 2 days where the surf was calm enough to be able to swim easily. But there are a number of other beaches very close by that we were able to snorkel and swim in - Rainbow Bay, Ten Bay, French Leave, Double Bay. The place was very clean and we found everything we needed to cook most of our meals in the kitchen. The views are great and the house has a balcony off the living room and bedrooms as well as a lower landing just before the beach with loungers - a great place for a coffee and a morning read. We'd definitely go back!

    Daniel2019-03-25T00:00:00Z
  • The lighthouse is a very unique space that makes you feel right at home. The views were unbeatable especially at the top of the lighthouse. The beach was located just down the paved walkway where you have the entire stretch to yourself. We went to a couple of other beaches and this one was still our favorite despite being a little too rough to swim a couple of the days. It's a good central location that isn't too far from the airport and Governor's Harbor where you can get anything you need, but far enough that it felt very private and safe. We recommend going to the lighthouse to take stock before stopping for groceries if you plan to cook. You will also need the empty five gallon water jug to exchange for a new one. If you're like us you won't want to leave once your vacation is over.

    North Palmetto Point, Central Eleuthera, Bahamas

    Welcome to the Lil Red House your very own little piece of paradise. This newly renovated beachfront home is literally footsteps from the crystal clear waters of the Caribbean. The property is unique in that it has its own natural salt water pool carved out in front of the home where you can snorkel from the home to beautiful coral reefs just a few hundred feet away. The home itself is the definition of "open concept" with a very large living room and kitchen that keep the ocean the focal point.
    Please note this has 1 dedicated private bedroom. In the living room there is a day bed with a pop up trundle which converts this to a king size bed or 2 single beds. The bathroom is located off of the master bedroom therefore you need to walk through the bedroom to access the bathroom. Keep this in mind when booking thank you.
    South Palmetto point is an excellent central location to make the most of your Eleuthera vacation. Situated approximately in the middle of the island is ideal whether you want to venture south to Lighthouse beach or the head north towards Harbor Island. Located approximately 8km from Governors Harbor ensures you have access to all amenities. Most importantly is the very close proximity to some of the best beaches in the world, you can enjoy your own private beach right outside your door, head over to "Ten Bay" beach just down the coast or head over to the Atlantic side beaches. All of this in less than a 10 minute drive from the home gives you a great choice of beaches to change things up or plan your day with the direction of the wind.
  • This is one of my favorite Airbnbs I’ve ever stayed at. Jake’s place is on a beautiful quiet stretch of beach with a big deck that you’ll never want to leave (especially at sunset). Other highlights include a huge comfortable bed, spacious open bathroom equipped with beach towels and any supplies you’ll need, epic daybed for napping, super well stocked kitchen and ceiling fans and a/c units throughout the place.

    Samantha2020-01-09T00:00:00Z
  • The Lil Red House is a beautiful property, conveniently located a few miles south of Governors Harbour on the Caribbean side of Eleuthera. Great deck with both sun and shade options, and the sunsets are lovely. In more than 20 rental stays, I have never found a host and caretaker who were as helpful as Jake and Phil. Highly recommended.

    Eleuthera, South Palmetto Point, Bahamas

    SeaEsta Luxury, Covered Cabana,Kayaks,Wifi, Air Conditioning Come stay at SeaEsta. The home was completely gutted and done all new a two years ago. Fabulous huge kitchen, new gas stove, stainless steel fridge and dishwasher. Full laundry , lower level. The home sleeps six maximum with the lower level set up as a private suite with it’s own bathroom as well as a large family room. The upper level is open concept overlooking the water and decking with a covered cabana.
    We have numerous fruit tress at the home, sapadilly, mango, sour orange, avocado. All the major restaurants are only minutes away, Tippy’s, 1648,Bougainville, Sunset Beach Bar. Governor Harbour Airport is just 20 minutes from the house . Grocery and liquor stores are within minutes.
    We are within a few minutes from Island Farms, for specialty sauces, fresh veggies, homemade breads etc. A must see.
  • My family of four had an amazing week at SeaEsta! The house is immaculate - the pictures do not do it justice. It is situated on a beautiful waterfront lot with a landscape resembling a Bahamian botanical garden. The covered cabana, open upper level porch, and covered lower level porches were all great places to hang out depending on the time of day. There is a concrete patio area located on the rocky shoreline with an open area excavated to make launching the provided kayaks a breeze. The rocky shoreline was also very good place for a beginner to practice before setting out for some of the more intermediate and advanced snorkeling sites around the island. Based on the number of nassau grouper, yellow tail snapper, and triggerfish I saw hiding in the rocks while snorkeling, fishing behind the house would be worth a shot. There is a hammock located beneath two pine trees providing a shady spot for a quick nap or a few Kaliks while listening to the crystal clear water lap against the rocks. It was our first time to Eleuthera so we set out to snorkel and sight see everyday, but when we return we will spend more time simply hanging out at the house. Palmetto Point is a great central location. Pizza at Mate & Jenny’s hit the spot on a couple of nights where we were too tired to cook. The Friday night BBQ at 3J’s Jerk Pit is excellent. We also shopped a lot at Island Farms for fresh veggies, fruit (Eleuthera pineapple!), fresh baked bread, awesome salsa, and ice cold soft drinks, water, & beer. The most amazing beaches you’ve ever seen are within a 5-10 minute drive from the house. We had French Leave and Tippy’s beach all to ourselves most days with the occasional visitor walking by to say hello. I could sit on the back deck at Tippy’s for hours and never move an inch. The house is right in the middle of the island, so you’re a quick drive north or south when you set out to see Sapphire Hole, Ocean Hole, Preacher’s Cave, Queen’s Bath or any of the other amazing sites scattered across this beautiful island. Gerry was extremely easy to reach and quick to answer any questions we had. We were very grateful for the tips he provided as they were extremely helpful as we set out in search of groceries, beer, ice, & gas. We also received a warm welcome from Shanta, Gerry and Pat’s property manager. She assists renters when Gerry and Pat are off island. Shanta was also a wealth of information and simply the nicest person you will ever meet. Her sister runs the Queen of Hearts food truck in Savannah South, just a short drive south on Queen’s Highway. Excellent food, great prices, and friendly faces, a must stop during your stay! We also enjoyed being a quick drive to Governor’s Harbour where we hit up Da Perk for coffee and the best cappuccino chocolate chip muffins you will ever eat! The locals are the kindest, most generous people we have ever encountered while traveling. We attended the Governor’s Harbour Independence Day festival while we were there and were made to feel right at home. We were probably the only tourists at the festival, but were treated to smiling faces and hugs when we introduced ourselves. We had the best Bahamian BBQ and desserts while we listened to the local high school band and watched the local children playing on the playground. Eleuthera is a magical place and SeaEsta is the perfect place to call home while you’re there! We can’t wait to return!

  • This is the 2nd time I've stayed at this AirBnB and there's a reason for that; Arlene is the best host I've had. She's proactive about keeping you up to date with things on the island and responds immediately. The place has everything you need and even some extras like beach chairs and a cooler.

    Matt2019-12-28T00:00:00Z
  • The living room was fantastic both for the accommodation, clean is equipped with every necessary accessory, and as a strategic location with respect to the island. Another positive note is the beach at the end of the road which, although not among the best, offers a splendid access opportunity as soon as you arrive or for the very last bathroom before leaving. Arlene is a very caring hostess ready to resolve any setback to provide swift and clarifying answers. The only clarification that may perhaps be useful is related to the fact that the accommodation is close to an area with a lot of greenery and therefore it happens to find some small insect as an unwanted guest in the house. But never mind, everything is so perfect that we can still remedy it.

    Pierpaolo2019-07-27T00:00:00Z
  • Beautiful home away from home! We really enjoyed our stay! The home was well decorated and extremely comfortable. We had a 9 month old with us and felt right at home with her. Arlene was a sweetheart and greeted us both on our arrival and departure. She supplied everything we needed to stay comfortable, make our own meals and to enjoy the beaches! She let us take her beach towels, chairs, and umbrellas to the beach which was a wonderful touch! Her welcome guide helped us discover the island, restaurants, and nearby beaches. Thank you for a wonderful stay!

    Jessica2019-03-28T00:00:00Z
  • We had a great time and loved our stay. The apartment is really beautiful, clean and had everything we needed. Arlene is a wonderful host and communication was really easy, even got a late checkout. We can definetely recommend Arlene and the sunflower suites!

    Bardia2019-02-15T00:00:00Z
  • Arlene's place is everything you wanted and needed while visiting Eleuthera. Firstly, the location was perfect. It was in the middle of the island so about an hour to the north beaches and an hour to the south beaches. Great location for little day trips. Best of all, if you don't feel like taking long trips, the apartment is 15 mins away from one of the best beaches on the island called French Leave. The apartment was super clean and had a beautiful deck with BBQ that worked perfectly. Check in was very efficient and Arlene is an absolute delight to deal with. She even brought us some locally grown lettuce from her place for our salad on the first night - she's a gem! The apartment came equipped with everything we needed: fully stocked kitchen with dishes (no pan though, only pots), a very comfy bed, and a super clean washroom with an abundance of towels. Additionally, the wifi was really fast and reliable. We lost power once or twice (I think the whole island did), but it didn't last long and Arlene was super prompt in letting us know this. Overall, our stay was amazing and what made it even better was that we had a great place to stay and an even greater host. Heads up though, the island does have sand fleas that will get you pretty good so make sure you come with bug spray, and put lots on when you're sitting on the deck enjoying the sunshine! We will definitely be back and will definitely be staying at Arlene's place again!

    Qumi2019-02-04T00:00:00Z
  • I can't say enough about how great of a host Arlene is. She lives right down the road and always responded with questions quickly. She greeted us when we arrived and stopped by to wish us farewell. She provided an easy to follow binder with local information, contacts and tips. The binder also had clear and easy to follow instructions/rules for the house. There is a land line for use in case you do not have an international phone plan. The place was perfectly spacious for 2 people and very clean. The patio is large, has plenty of furniture and a grill for use. Beach chairs, umbrella and a cooler were provided. Which were a huge help for sitting on the beach. She even had bug spray in the unit in case you forgot to bring some. Arlene has been the best host I've had on Airbnb to date.

    Matt2018-12-27T00:00:00Z
  • Had a great time at Arlene's; the description was very accurate and it was a cozy spot to relax and explore the island from. There were beach towels we could borrow, a jug of drinking water in the fridge, binder with LOTS of local tips and detailed info (also provided digitally ahead of time), and rental car references. Some tiny ants in the bathroom, but it's a tropical island, no worries. Loved meeting the little geckos on the porch.

    Matthew2018-12-15T00:00:00Z
  • My wife and I both loved Arlene's place and Eleuthera. The place is spotless, and quite spacious for 2 people. We loved having a grill on the porch and a kitchen in the unit as we would often eat in. The place is located right smack in the middle of Eleuthera so it's a great launching place for adventures both north and south. In addition, there are beautiful beaches very close to the property including French Leave. The included beach chairs and cooler were great to have as well! Arlene herself was very helpful and responsive to all our questions. She was also able to give us great advice on places to go on the island. When we come back to Eleuthera, we would rent from her again in a heartbeat! P.S. While you are in Eleuthera, you must visit Lighthouse beach. While the trek is long and the road to the actual beach is in rough shape (must have high clearance vehicle), the payoff is more than worth it! In addition, if you are looking for good food at a great price, you must visit the Queen of Tarts in Savannah Town.

  • It really felt like a home away from home. I have a 5 month old infant, Arlene provided a pack n play for our little one to sleep in. The apartment was clean and the decor was lovely. I would recommended it for anyone looking for a relaxing vacation.

    Valeria2018-04-15T00:00:00Z
  • Arlene gave us a warm welcome, she gave us all the information we needed it and her place is really nice and clean with all you need to be comfortable. I would definitely stay at Arlene’s next time.

    Ursula2018-03-11T00:00:00Z
  • This place is 5-10 min walking distance from west beach and 5 min drive to east beach, Perfect to see sun rise and/or sunset. This place is clean and beautiful. Conveniently located in center of island. Arlene gave us good local tips and told about beaches which was really beautiful and was not there on google maps or internet. We really enjoyed our stay at this place and next time we will definitely stay at this place.

    Namita2017-12-31T00:00:00Z
  • The Sir Charles Guest House was absolutely fabulous! It was gorgeous and very well appointed. Everything was super clean, in excellent condition and looked brand new. The location was great, in that it was walkable to Mate & Jenny's pizza place, 3 J's Jerk Pit, and close to South Palmetto Point beach and several other beaches. Arlene was truly a wonderful host, very warm and welcoming with big hugs, and quick to reply with answers and suggestions. I have been to Eleuthera many many times and this was one of the nicest stays that I have had. Many thanks Arlene!

    Muriel2017-09-30T00:00:00Z
  • Arlene was a great host. She was very communicative throughout the booking and our stay. She greeted us and was happy to answer any questions. The morning of our departure, she also stopped by to check in and say thank you. The guest house was very nicely decorated and clean, and just a quick trip up the road to the water. Very nice!

    Amanda2017-02-27T00:00:00Z
  • The host is pretty nice, she helped us rent a car and gives pages of advices on our trip, very helpful. Also she came into the house the night before we leave to say goodbye. The house is very beautiful and clean, and we had a barbecue in the back yards, very nice experience. I won't forget this trip in Eleuthera.

  • The house is more beautiful than the photos. Spacious and especially on the sea, wonderful to have breakfast enjoying a breathtaking view not to mention the sunsets. Excellent kaiak available, bonfire on the beach and all the accessories of the house to be able to live Eleuthera as it should be. Thomson is very punctual in communications, and makes you feel like a welcome guest right away. I recommend this house because in a great location in the center of the island and above all because it offers more than what you can expect from a holiday home. Thank you

    Denis2020-01-10T00:00:00Z
  • The villa was very clean and felt like home. Everything you need is provided and we had no complaints. The view is beautiful and the hosts were friendly and responsive.

    Magan2019-04-21T00:00:00Z
  • Spencer and rosemary’s place was perfect for a week long trip to Eleuthera! We loved having access to the little beach out back and use of the kayak was great. Spencer was great in arranging a rental car for us and giving us a little tour of the island on our way from the airport. Their place is quaint, clean, and in a great location to Governors Harbour. We had an awesome, and relaxing vacation and would recommend their place to anyone!

    Taylor2019-04-01T00:00:00Z
  • Great location, clean, great amenities (kayak, fire pit). Definitely worth the stay.

    Tamika2019-03-24T00:00:00Z
  • We had never been to Eleuthera and found ourselves welcome and at home in this beautiful space and location. We hope to be back again!

    Jeannie2019-03-10T00:00:00Z
  • Although we didn't meet Rosemary, her husband, Spencer, was there to greet us and was only a phone call away if we needed him. The place on the beach is very nice and although the kids didn't get to use the boat, we definitely took advantage of the gas grill and cooked up so local crawfish. We will definitely check it out again.

    Emille & Keisha2019-01-06T00:00:00Z
  • Wonderful location and outstanding service! This quaint villa was the perfect setting for us and our 14 year old daughter to enjoy a quick Christmas trip. Greeted and accommodated with our own rental car, special care from Spencer to explain to us about the area and amenities, even a gift awaited us under the beautiful lighted Christmas tree in the living room when we walked in! We especially enjoyed finding BIG conch shells EVERY day, magnificent seashells and our own firepit by the ocean for hotdogs, marshmallows and stargazing. The propane grill was an excellent option for grilling burgers for a night in. Very close to Ten Bay Beach and just minutes from Governor’s Harbour. We will definitely stay again! Tip for first time visitors to Eleuthera... many places only take cash - be prepared. Closest ATM is Royal Bank of Canada in Governor’s Harbour FYI. We highly recommend Rosemary and Spencer!Thank you for a fabulous time.

  • Such an ideal base for exploring Eleuthera! The staff here help make it truly special — so communicative and make you feel like there’s always someone close should you need anything or have questions. Mika Ann’s communication prompt and detailed. We drove all over the island and found that staying near Governor’s Harbour was a good choice. A stunning location with heartwarming views all around and beaches that go on and on. The home is super clean, convenient and has everything you need. We stayed upstairs in the main house but noted what a great spot it would be to book with friends as there are four cute casitas there too! Loved it!!!!

    What is special about the loft: WIFI, four burner gas stove (no oven), toaster, drip coffee machine, microwave, fridge. Light and airy. Gorgeous ocean view. Surrounded by Palmetto grove. Wrap around deck with ocean view. Free parking. Privacy. Outdoor hot/cold shower.
    NO SMOKING INSIDE OUR OUTSIDE OF LOFT NO SMOKING ANYWHERE ON PROPERTY ! ALWAYS RINSE SAND OFF FEET AND FOOTWEAR BEFORE ENTERING LOFT Thank you Accommodates 2 people. Palafito is a one room airy loft with private access to one of the world's premiere beaches. Amenities include WIFI, ocean view, fully equipped kitchen, wrap around deck, A/C outdoor grill, indoor and outdoor showers . The freestanding unit is located on a secluded three acre property 200' from the beach. The loft is ideal for solo travelers or couples who seek unmatched privacy, tropical views and literally miles of soft sand beaches merely steps from your bed. It is truly a place where "you can get away." It is located on a ,lightly trafficked road with sparse houses. There is a tropical garden on the property featuring local fruit bearing trees such as soursops, sugar apples, sapadillos, mangos and bananas. The loft is 10 miles from Governor's Harbor Airport and within walking distance of a relaxed cafe, restaurant and bar. Small grocery stores and other dining and bar options are within 2.5 miles. The island itself is a unique place to explore with many opportunites for eco/adventure style tourism. Limestone caves, hidden beaches and sleepy villages are some of Eleuthera's easily accessed attractions. You can snorkel and fish just off the beach or many other places along the 110 mile coast. Surfing, scuba, sailing, fishing and deep sea fishing tours are available. For longer excursions it is best to rent a car for though some guests have hitchhiked. Car rentals are approximately $65-$75/day Nightlife options are laid back and tend to involve a mix of expats, locals and a band or DJ. You might catch one of the rockstars who has settled on the island at an open mic or even find yourself jamming alongside if you are so inclined. Gregory Town, a village 25 minutes to the north by car is an active nightspot. Your hosts, Tommy and Gail, are an easygoing married couple who have resided in the Bahamas for many years and are happy to share their knowledge of the island. Tennis court access for a $25/day fee. maximum 2 hours per day. Non-marking shoes are mandatory., In lieu of renting a car, taxis are available The map shown on the airbnb site is misleading. The loft is in fact 200' from the Atlantic Ocean.k'
    Our neighborhood is quiet , surrounded by island nature, a large palmetto grove and the constant soothing sound of the ocean surf.
  • Such a perfect little studio by the sea. If you're looking for a quiet peaceful place to relax and disconnect, its here. Although simple it lacks for nothing. Walks on the beach and just lounging around. The kitchen has everything you need to cook a good meal . Otherwise tippy's is a stroll away and definitely worth your time. We look forward staying here again. Tom and Gail are warm and friendly and even though their house is right next door, the space feels miles away. Papaya will stop by each morning to say hello, so if you need a little dog therapy that is the time. If you're looking for glitz and glamour,, go to a different island . Eluthera is not for everyone, which is why we love it.

    Derek2019-11-19T00:00:00Z
  • Beautiful as well as peaceful spot to relax and great hospitality. Highly recommended!

    Katja2019-05-30T00:00:00Z
  • This space is exactly what you hope for if you're looking for a spot just off the beaten path, but close enough so you're not trekking too far back into town. Tippy's up the beach is a fantastic perk, and the private beach access across the road is a complete hidden gem... we honestly could have planted ourselves there for the entire stay in Eleuthera.

    Gareth2019-05-18T00:00:00Z
  • Such an incredible place. Within walking distance of the most beautiful beach on earth! Gail was super helpful and provided us with great tips. We loved eating at the Buccaneer’s Club and 1648! Truly one of the most relaxing vacations of our lives. We will for sure be returning. ❤️

    Caitlin2019-04-18T00:00:00Z
  • We have spent five nights in the loft by the sea. It's situated in a great area and is across the street from a fabulous and empty beach. It was our favourite beach on Eleuthera. Wide pink sands and turquoise waters. The place has everything you need and is very clean. I would highly recommend it. We only met Gail (Tommy was not around) and she is just lovely and very hospitable. Their dog Papaya is very friendly.

    Kasia2019-04-10T00:00:00Z
  • Tommy and Gail are wonderful hosts. Their place is a hidden piece of paradise. If you want to be refreshed, find solitude and enjoy the ocean and the sun this is the place to go. Thanks.

    Michael2019-03-24T00:00:00Z
  • Cannot day enough great things about this place! First, the location is amazing. Across from the beach, private access, and you can hear the waves all night from the balcony. Full kitchen, everything you would ever need. Outdoor shower was a fav too!

    Lisa2019-03-01T00:00:00Z
  • The loft is perfectly comfortable and the location can’t be beat! We loved cooking and eating on the porch and having such ease of access to a truly gorgeous beach spot. We loved seeing the ocean right through our window when we woke up. It was quiet and private and the hospitality was wonderful.

    Estherlee2019-10-29T00:00:00Z
  • We had an fantastic stay at Mika's. The property is new, well thought out, and beautiful. Even having seen the pictures on the Airbnb site, we were shocked by the view from our casita; the water and beach are so gorgeous and basically right outside of your window. The beaches around the property are picturesque and seemingly endless -- it's really a sight. Rodney was extremely welcoming, gave great recommendations, and really helped make our stay great (he was even kind enough to take us to the grocery store after we arrived!). There was a kitchen off the lobby we were able to use, as well as beach chairs, swimming gear, etc. Would recommend a car for your stay. There aren't really stores/restaurants within walking distances -- and Eleuthera's many beautiful other beaches and sights are definitely worth checking out!

    Megan2019-10-16T00:00:00Z
  • Mika’s place is truly amazing. The view is unbelievable and the proximity to the beach is perfect. Definitely the best stay on the island.

    Jonathan2019-08-17T00:00:00Z
  • This place is a true gem!!!! The most AMAZING bedroom views - photos do no justice! As the day goes on the water changes colors and you can see the many reefs. Our unit had corner views out of this world. Of course the same beautiful views are seen from your front porch on each unit as well! The beach is also perfect! Not too rough but not too calm to play/enjoy the waves. The inside of these units are just as beautiful. Gorgeous decor, very well built, extremely modern, beautiful shower with beach views and overhead waterfall and handheld nozzles. Huge and romantic. And the toilet seat is heated...... need I say more... this place is luxury for sure. The staff was very nice and helpful and the host was amazing to work with and very responsive. They have a main house/building with a full kitchen they offered to let us use as well. I’m obsessed with this place. Would go back in a heartbeat. We did not want to leave those amazing views! Great find!!!!!!!!

  • We loved Lisa and her house There is a great atmosphere and thanks to Lisa a lot for her help with house and a car 💚💛🧡❤💙💜

    Alicia (Olesia)2020-03-10T00:00:00Z
  • Lisa is a DREAM host. Her hospitality out matches any that I have experienced in the past. Her home is perfectly located from a beautiful beach that’s a 10 minute walk away. With a sun deck elevated above the tree line I was able to not only soak up the morning sunshine while drinking my coffee(that she made me I might add) but it was also the perfect spot to sit while stargazing with a local beer in my hand at night. Lisa knows the island very well and is pretty much friends with the entire population. Her giving personality knows no stranger. I felt as if I’ve been friends with her for 10 years. I felt perfectly at home immediately. My trip turned out more amazing that I expected because of Lisa and her home.

    William2020-03-02T00:00:00Z
  • If you're lucky enough to get accommodation with Lisa, by far the most valuable thing you're getting is Lisa herself. Connected with most everything and everyone on the island, Lisa is a mover and shaker, a font of knowledge, and an an invaluable friend to have in your corner. Best of all, she honestly enjoys being a host and takes great pride in helping others enjoy Eleuthera. Staying at her house was great; the room is comfortable and you have access to a nice kitchen. Rainbow Bay is a nice place to be for peace and quiet and a simple beach. If you want to explore more or have access to restaurants you'll need to rent a car, which she can arrange. But honestly, if I come back I won't care where I stay so much as making sure it's a place that Lisa manages, because that way I'll know it will be a great experience.

    Matthew2019-12-31T00:00:00Z
  • Lisa is a fantastic host. Pick up/drop of at the airport. Ready to help with enthousiasme at any moment. The house and the property are a calm relaxing place. A sundeck invites you to chill out and relax with a view over the vegetation and the carib sea. Short : it is a heavenly Airbnb !

    Laurent2019-12-01T00:00:00Z
  • Lisa is the best host anyone could imagine. Her fast replies, extensive knowledge, enduring patience, and just sheer dedication to making sure you have the best stay possible is absolutely incredible. With so much going wrong on our trip, we would have been down and out had it not been for Lisa coming to our rescue at every turn.

    DiShawnn2019-04-28T00:00:00Z
  • It was a great stay at Lisa’s house. She is one of the friendliest women we ever met and helped us with everything. Her son Jay is very nice and helpful too. She gave us a perfect map of Eleuthera with a lots of recommendations. As well as we could rent a car from her and she picked us up at the airport and drove us again to the airport. It was perfect for us. Thank you Lisa! It was a pleasure to meet you. 😉

    Lukas2019-04-21T00:00:00Z
  • Lisa and family were great. The location is peaceful and the sounds of the ocean made it very relaxing. Even the family dog was excited and very friendly to be around. Love you Carma and hope to see you again soon. I would definitely recommend Lisa with my experience.

    South Palmetto Point, Central Eleuthera, Bahamas

    Escape to Dream House …your very own private tropical paradise sitting high atop a sand ridge offering breath-taking, panoramic views of the Atlantic Ocean.
    Leave the cares of the world behind you. Let yourself become one with the tranquil turquoise of the sea that stretches out all around you. Push open the expansive sliding glass doors and step outside. You’ll feel like sea captain on the prow of your very own ship! Breath in the sweet fresh ocean air. Allow yourself to be the soothed by the warm tropical breezes and the gentle rhythms of the surf below. Your dream is about to come true… Start your day sipping a cup of freshly brewed coffee while revelling at the glorious sunrise from expansive glass-railed deck. Then follow your own footsteps down to the soft pink sands of your secluded beach below. Wade into the rejuvenating seawater or wander in solitude along your pristine beach. Rinse off under the gentle spray of your seaside shower, then plunge into the warm waters of your private pool. After a leisurely pool-side breakfast, including home-grown fruits, don your snorkel and fins and explore the vast coral reefs just beyond your beach. Discover brightly coloured tropical fish and lush coral landscapes. Or soak up the sun while escaping into the pages of that special book you have been saving. After lunch float in your secluded pool or nap under the dappled shade of a palm tree. In the evening enjoy preparing your dinner in your beautifully appointed gourmet kitchen. Listen to your favourite tunes from the rich stereo of your Sonos Bluetooth speakers all while looking out over the ever-changing seas. Marvel at the spectacular island sunset over cocktails. Dine under the stars, savouring freshly caught seafood, grilled to perfection on your gas BBQ, crisp locally-grown organic salad greens, home-grown avocado and juicy vine ripe tomatoes, all delicately seasoned with herbs snipped from your very own organic herb garden. Complete your gourmet meal with the perfect bottle of wine selected in town. Or…let yourself be pampered… book an ocean-side table at one of the world-class restaurants just a short drive down the road and dance the night away to the live rhythms of Island music.

    Located on the tinted pink sand of Bird Point Beach, only a few steps away from the famous Tippy’s Restaurant, "Bird of Paradise Beachfront Cottages" are the perfect getaway. The "Golden Chalice" is modern and unique with all the comforts of home. Beachfront deck, private pool, direct beach access, free WiFi, and time standing still are what you'll find here.
    "Bird of Paradise Beachfront Cottages" are "a new way to vacation", bringing all the amenities of home to your own private beachfront oasis. Enjoy sleeping on a king size bed and lifting your head up to see pristine ocean staring back at you. Save and cook your own meals in our fully stocked kitchen including electric range, numerous utensils, and cookwares. You can even choose where to bath, either inside or alfresco in the ocean side shower. If you've had to much sun and the air conditioning is more your speed feel free to lounge on the couch and watch some TV on our flat screen. Staying at The Golden Chalice means you enjoy panoramic views of the Atlantic Ocean and world famous pink sand beach by day and outrageous sunsets and star gazing by night.
    The neighborhood is subtle, quiet, and subdued. The cottages are directly on the beach and allow for easy access to and from the ocean. The famous Tippy's is right next door. We are a 5 minute drive into Governors Harbour where you can find groceries, gas, additional restaurants, and other supplies.
  • We had an amazing stay. The cottage was in a perfect location. Tarictia was so sweet and helpful with anything we needed. Loved having the pool and the gorgeous deck to watch the sunrise. I would stay here again in a second! It was a perfect escape.

  • This is a such a wonderful rental home in the Bahamas. The owner and caretaker were wonderful - easy to get a hold of and provided for our every need. The house is charming, clean, has everything you need, and has the most amazing view and beach. We rented a car and had plans to do our typical exploration of the island - but the house, deck, pool, and beach were so great we didn't end up wanting to go anywhere else! The deck is a great place to read and enjoy the view, eat breakfast, lunch, and dinner - it also lets you have sun or shade pretty much all day. You can walk both directions on the beautiful pink sand beach forever. The beach had great spots for snorkeling, hunting for shells, or wading out into the perfect blue waters. You could walk a long way out on perfect sandy footing. Tippy's next door was never too loud and was quiet by bedtime. We will definitely be back for another visit - and will definitely stay here again. My only hesitation in recommending this place to everyone is that I don't want everyone to know our secret. Thanks Birds of Paradise for a truly perfect vacation.

    Chanda2020-02-29T00:00:00Z
  • Fabulous little cottage right on the beach, just like the pictures but even better in person. The cottage is built and laid out perfectly to take advantage of the view, and it has everything you might need for your stay. The warm and lovely property manager Tarictia greeted us shortly after arrival and made sure everything was taken care of. The cottage is a very short drive on Banks road to the Levy plant reserve (you should go!) and Governor’s Harbour and in the other direction to La Bougainvillea and Palmetto Point. Very well located to get around easily.

    Brian2020-02-22T00:00:00Z
  • Would highly recommend this cottage! It was just the right size for the 2 of us and it had everything that you would need. The view is incredible and the beach is so beautiful. The location was perfect as well, you have many choices of restaurants in that area. Will definitely stay there again.

    Donna2019-12-29T00:00:00Z
  • Gorgeous property! Awesome location, super clean, beautifully appointed, everything you need at your fingertips! Cant wait to return.

    Amy2019-12-22T00:00:00Z
  • Bird of Paradise was...PARADISE. It was absolutely perfect. Location was IMO best on the island, in Governors Harbor, close to everything. Perfect base camp for exploring the entire island, or if you just want to stay put and do nothing, it doesn't get better than that pool and that view. I'd stay here on every visit. The doors slide completely open so the house opens completely up. The space feels big. It's close to the good restaurants (1649 and Bouganvillea's were the best), close to town. It is mighty close to Tippy's, but there is a beautiful beach in front of Tippy's free of seaweed and rocks. Directly in front of the house it's a bit rocky, but you can get in. Recommend water shoes for Eleuthera! Some areas they will come in handy. Go to lighthouse beach. It's a must!!!!

    Ben2019-10-12T00:00:00Z
  • As an AirBnb superhost myself, if you are considering booking one of the Bird of Paradise cottages, DO IT! Go and book it now before you lose out, then come back and read my review. Ok, are you back? Great! Let me tell you, this was the most amazing location for a vacation EVER! For starters, the cottage is wonderful! Right on the most beautiful beach I have ever seen, and it was always deserted! The infinity pool was AMAZING! I never thought I would want a pool when I was staying right on the beach, but I was wrong. We spent a lot of time in the pool when we weren't in the ocean or on the beach. We would walk for miles on the beach and some days never see another soul. I think the most people we saw was maybe 6 (we were there at the end of July, so a bit of the off season). The sand was like powdered sugar, and just beautiful! I thought Tippy's bar would just be a dive beach bar, but the chef is apparently renown, and the food and drink were fantastic! We would buy fresh fish and lobster at the fish market when it came off the boat, and cook it at the cottage. Yes, the cottage itself was fantastic! Clean, good amenities, great hospitality from Taracita the manager, great deck and pool. Couldn't be better! We WILL come back to the Bird of Paradise Cottages!

    Doug2019-08-03T00:00:00Z
  • Wow, what a fantastic cottage directly on the beach. It has all the amenities to eat in, with a grocery store just a short drive down the road or tippy’s just next door. Tippy’s is a must on a Saturday night if you are there. The beach out the front offers amazingly clear water with soft white sand and some unbelievable snorkeling spots directly in front. Snorkeling equipment was even provided as well as everything else you could possibly need. The facilities were extremely clean and tidy with a comfy bed and quality linen. Perfect central location to navigate the whole island and find the secluded beach you may be searching for. Couldn’t recommend bird of paradise cottages enough. Absolutely 5 stars

    The Pink Cottage is a two bedroom / two bathroom home 🏡 overlooking the Atlantic with a nice porch and a roof top terraces. It’s tucked away from hustle but right next to the wonderful luxury resort La Bougainvillae where you are welcome to play in the pool, do yoga 🧘🏼‍♀️ lessons with the amazing yoga teacher Kat. The Pink Cottage has a private beach access to a Pink/White Powdery Sandy Beach with pristine water. The walk from the cottage to the beach on our private access will take about 5 min.
    It’s the entire home just for you.
    Our Pink Cottage is tucked away on a hill surrounded by Palmetto Palms overlooking the Atlantic Ocean.
  • I recommend eyes closed! This house is very well placed with the sea 3min walk. Very comfortable and nicely decorated. Sarah is a great host, very caring. She responds very quickly to messages is great! That said absolute distrust we were devoured by the "sandflies" because we did not know there were on the beaches, think of mosquito repellents (at the time we do not see them it is only the next day that bites appear and itch much more than mosquito bites !!) Also be careful with the ocean sea which is very rough and surely preferred the Caribbean Sea. In any case, very nice memories of Eleuthera Island and good trip to the next travelers :)

    Marie2020-02-23T00:00:00Z
  • Location, location, location! Beautiful beaches nearby, walking distance to La Bougainvillea and a short drive to Tippy’s for lunch and kite boarding. We loved Sarah’s place, cute and well equipped. The cottage was very comfortable for 4 adults and a toddler. Our toddler son had a blast and slept like a champ... which means we will be back. Sarah was really accommodating and easy to communicate with. We will be back!

    Lisa2020-02-17T00:00:00Z
  • Sarah and Derek were amazing hosts and they made us feel more than welcome in there home. They have created such a special experience. We left planning our next visit.

We run our place more like a bed and breakfast where you have the freedom to move around the property like it's your own. We are off the beaten path and like to think of our place as a quiet, private getaway with a paradise beach feel. Guests have access to our main house lobby and community kitchen where they are welcome to cook their own meals. Please note that we do not have staff on site 24 hours a day. Here's a list of reasons why you should choose us: - private oceanfront Casita - private beach - incredible culture and people - 5 minutes from GHB airport Reach out to the Ann Webb Skin Clinic in Austin, TX for specific questions or if you have a large group.
    Eleuthera is a laid-back, safe, quaint island that is known for its friendly people and for having the sweetest pineapples in the world!
  • We had a great experience! The views were great (although we wish the Atlantic had left some sand for us!). The space was modern and well-decorated - it is brand new! Mika was so friendly and quick to respond. Rodney and Reynaldo were very helpful for local tips and went out of their way to add to our experience. The only minor issues we had were some small ants and the temperature/water pressure of the shower, but Rodney was quick to assist us with these as best he could and we understand some kinks are getting worked out with a new place. Mika is attentive to her space and continues to make improvements.

    Samantha2020-03-12T00:00:00Z
  • Expect beautiful sunrises and cool ocean breeze with the windows open. Nice shower. Lots of parking, and shelving area in the bathroom. AC unit, fan and available dishes/cutlery. If you drink water constantly, you may want to bring some gallons from a local store. This is in a great central location. Bring cash to the island!

    Heidie2020-03-04T00:00:00Z
  • This place was amazing! Must stay while in Eleuthera. Very clean and comfy with an awesome view. Loved it and will be returning.

    Michael2019-12-19T00:00:00Z
  • Mika's place was really great. Highly recommended it, for the location and amenities, it can't be beat for value! Rodney was amazing help, he even drive into town to get us, as we arrived really late in the night and got a bit lost.

    Xavier2019-11-19T00:00:00Z
  • Really nice staff and a.beautiful hidden gem with an amazing views!

    Anna2019-11-15T00:00:00Z
  • Mika’s place is a hidden gem close to the airport and the governors harbour town center but still miles away from any disturbance. It is perfectly appointed, with amazing views and all the amenities you could think of. Mika has a terrific property and we are so happy she decided to share it. Thanks again Mika. We will be back!

    Mark2019-10-13T00:00:00Z
  • Mika's place is truly heaven on earth. A true gem.Great location not to far from central GH. Do recommend a rental car to get around. Place was very clean. Peaceful and relaxing with the beautiful ocean being literally steps away from your Casita. And the views are stunning it's like waking up right on the beach. I highly recommend if you a solo traveler like me or a couple looking to escape this is the perfect getaway. Mikas brother Chad was more that amazing with the check in. Very nice man. The property is still under construction regarding landscape ect, but trust me you will not be disappointed.

    Nicole2019-08-18T00:00:00Z
  • This place is so awesome. Still being developed but it’s in such a sweet spot , views are fantastic. The casitas are so thought out in detail. Its truly a special place. Beautiful touches.

    This charming cottage is perched on a high dune above a spectacular pink sand beach..
    This charming cottage is perched on a high dune above a spectacular pink sand beach. Walk down the wooden stairway onto a miles-long deserted beach with postcard-perfect turquoise water. A barrier reef offshore keeps the surf modest, so this is a very safe and swimmable beach. “On the Dune”comes with full access to the small and quiet Unique Village resort, less than a one-minute walk from the cottage, which features an ocean front pool, restaurant, and bar. On the Dune has two bedrooms and two bath. It has a full kitchen with refrigerator, range, oven, microwave, and sink. Enjoy a beverage on your private deck overlooking the beach and ocean, or walk over to Unique Village for a meal or drinks. Unique’s restaurant serves three meals a day. The town of Palmetto Point is just half a mile away, a one-minute drive or a ten-minute walk. Palmetto Point is home to the popular Mate and Jenny’s restaurant, as well as several stores. Tippy’s beachfront restaurant is a 5 minute drive. A ten minute drive takes you into Governors Harbor, the main town on the island. Governors Harbor has a charming collection of 19th century homes and churches overlooking its historic harbor. Buy fresh fish and lobster most afternoons from fisherman at the town dock, or visit the recently restored Haynes Library, which dates from 1897, for the weekly coffee hour for foreign residents and tourists. Governors Harbor has grocery stores, restaurants, liquor stores, two banks with ATMs, a bakery, gift shops, and a medical clinic. Friday Night Fish Fry in Governors Harbor, a street/beach party that brings together all the tourists and locals with food, drink, and dancing in the street, is not to be missed. Eleuthera is famous for its 100 miles of spectacular, deserted beaches. The island, home to just 11000 residents, is known for its friendliness and safety. Visitors enjoy the rare experience of picking up hitch-hikers and leaving their keys in the car. The snorkeling, diving, and fishing on the island are world class. Boating, surfing, and other water sports are also popular. You can rent power boats, sailboats, sea kayaks, jet skis, scooters, and bikes. You can have a charter captain take you out for excursions of various types. You ride horses on the beach or on trails. There is excellent sightseeing as well. Eleuthera has vast caves, cliffs, a bottomless ocean hole, many unique beaches, historic churches and 19th century homes, and small villages to explore.
  • The place is lovely. We stayed in one of the houses on the beach and were very comfortable. Eleuthera was exactly what we were looking for, not touristy or commercial. The beaches are beautiful. Had a great time bonefishing with Denny Rankine who was recommended by Pam.

    Bob2019-03-16T00:00:00Z
  • On The Dunes cottage was everything we expected, and more. A wonderful get-away place to chill from the hectic pace we live here, state-side. The owner of the Unique Village Resort was a wonderful host and responded as best he could to our couple of requests. The beach was absolute serenity, and the grocery store, coffee shop & local fish produce & Friday Night Fish Fry in Governor's Harbour, matched the ambiance of the residents - superbly friendly. Great fresh produce & other condiments etc., at Eleuthera Island farm just south of turn to Unique Village Resort on Queen's Highway (10 minutes south of Governor's harbor) Thoroughly recommend On The Dunes cottages for an economical family vacation location.

    Neil2018-07-28T00:00:00Z
  • If you're looking for a great view and a private beach, this is the spot. This villa is great for up to four people and the kitchen is fully equipped with everything you'll need to prep, cook, and serve meals if you decide to cook at home. Palmetto Point is a great central location on the island if you plan on exploring both ends of the island, as it cuts your drive in half either direction. There are two other villas right next door and the beach was empty the entire time we were there. You're paying for the view that you get to wake up to every day, that's for sure. Thanks to Matt & Tara for a quick and seamless transaction and quick communication. We'll be back for sure.

    The neighborhood is subtle, quiet, and subdued. You'll meet people from all over the world who are an amazing special breed all sharing there time on the magical island of Eleuthera
  • Pinch me! Those are the words I used every morning as I woke to the breathtaking views from the sliding glass door of Purple Papaya. Seemed like I was still dreaming. This was our second trip to Eleuthera and this particular beach is what brought us back. How fortunate to have it right outside our door this time. If you book this property, of course you'll want to explore the island, but don't spend too much time away as the best beach is right here! Alissa was so easy to work with and super timely with communication. Tarictia, the onsite property manager who greeted us on arrival, was simply delightful. The cottage is beautifully and cheerfully decorated and had everything we could need for a relaxing vacation. We prepared breakfast, lunch and a couple dinners at home and found everything needed in the kitchen. We are VERY particular about beds and found this one to be extremely comfortable. The shower provided plenty of hot water (full disclosure, pressure was often a bit low) and the air conditioning and ceiling fans far exceeded our expectations. High speed internet was reliable and there was cable TV too (but we were there to escape so hardly used it.) Other reviewers have mentioned "noise" from Tippy's next door. Did we hear it? Yes. But the occasional sounds of reggae only enhanced our experience and the convenience of a solid place to eat dinner was a major plus. And what fun to be there at the stroke of midnight on January 1st when Junkanoo showed up to the party! We also enjoyed dining at Buccaneer Club, 1648 and takeout from Bacchus Fine Foods, all within a 5 minute drive.

    Mary Beth2020-01-04T00:00:00Z
  • This place is truly a little piece of Heaven. The location is as pictured right on the water. It is a beautiful beach with very few people. Most of the time you feel like you have the beach to yourself. The cottages are new, clean and have everything that you need and more...Having Tippy's next door is awesome! The best meals that we had on the island were at Tippy's and it is convenient for dinner since you don't have to drive. The market, gas station, and liquor store are located in the heart of Governor's Harbor, just a 5 minute drive away. Taricita, the care taker is hospitable and attentive and will gladly help you with anything that you may need. If you are thinking about booking this place, don't hesitate, just do it, you will be very glad that you did!

    Salma2019-08-24T00:00:00Z

    Holly2019-07-05T00:00:00Z
  • Very clean and comfortable house. Everything still looks new and is in great condition just like the pictures. The house is well stocked with shower and beach towels, body wash, shampoo/conditioner, all kitchen items, two foldable beach chairs, and a beach umbrella. We were concerned about the property being so close to Tippy's but it was not a problem. There was live music on Saturday and Wednesday night. It is loud outside and you can kind of hear it in the house but it didn't last too late into the night. It is nice being so close to Tippy's because the food is amazing. The beach behind the house is clean and private. I was worried about seaweed but there isn't any like in Mexico or other islands, the beach really does look like the pictures. I loved the feeling of having a private beach right in our backyard. Occasionally a few people from Tippy's would walk by but the surrounding trees and shrubs provide privacy from Tippy's and the house next door. We had an issue with the water pressure one night but Tarictia and her husband came over right away and changed the water filter. She does an amazing job cleaning and maintaining the house and is very helpful! We definitely plan to stay here again because the location in Central Eleuthera is perfect.

    Nesh2019-06-20T00:00:00Z
  • Expect to be blown away by the setting. Beautiful, clean, bright space in the most beautiful location right on the beach. Great location.

    Greg2019-06-09T00:00:00Z
  • The Purple Papaya is an amazing place to stay for two people. The home is extremely clean and is exactly as it is listed. Just perfect! It is absolutely beautiful, opening the sliding doors and listening to the ocean right at your back step is unforgettable. You simply walk about 15 steps into the ocean and snorkel right away. The reef right behind the house is absolutely beautiful and full of fish. You can spend hours out there. Our host, Tarictia, is amazing. She ensured anything we needed was cared for and was great to talk to throughout the trip. She is always reachable. Tarictia makes the greatest hand-made gifts which made for the best souvenirs to take back home from our trip. The kids/family love the gifts (shells, jewelry, baskets, etc.) Having Tippy’s right next door is is extremely convenient (especially when they have live music on Saturday nights). They close by 11PM so it was never a nuisance or interruptive at all. We found it to be great place to talk with some of the locals and get some great trip ideas. Everybody is so friendly. They are pretty expensive, but for apps and a drink or two, it was perfect. After seeing much of the island, the location of the Purple Papaya is simply perfect. The house is conveniently located in the middle of the island which makes it very convenient for taking trips one day to the North end (Spanish Wells, Preachers Cave, Sapphire Blue Hole, Queen’s Bath) and another day to the South end (Lighthouse Beach). We will be sure to re-book here on future trip(s).

    Bill2019-06-05T00:00:00Z
  • We loved our Purple Papaya. It was spotless and we had everything we needed. It is right on a long dream beach, you can walk in both directions for a very long time. Supermarket is only one nearby with limited choices. We were mostly in the Buccaneer Club and in 1648 and de Perk Coffee eat and have breakfast. Generally a not yet very developed place, but to find peace and relaxation perfect! We will be back. Thanks to Tatictia, she designed the transfer uncomplicated and looked after great

  • The Duck Inn is a really nice space and place to stay. Surrounded by gardens and overlooking an inlet , it is a beautiful villa, spacious and inviting. We visited from the main island of New Providence and will stay again. John was helpful and check in was easy. We saw a few ducks .
