  • Mrs Trisha was an amazing host. She helps with any assistance she can. Also got souvenirs from ms Trisha to take back. She has a nice spirit and makes your stay feel at home.

  • Exactly as the listing says/shows. Def rent a car to get around. The island is long and it can be hot. Great day trip.

    Yasmina2020-02-13T00:00:00Z
  • Excellent and timely responses, very attractive garden, clean in and out, close to restaurant, definitely staying again in the future. The homemade cookies and bread was excellent 👍

  • Patricia is a delightfully warm and kind host and made our stay in Rock Sound feel like home. When we arrived there was a jar of delicious homemade cookies -- all of which we finished! -- and a bowl of limes, papaya, and the most delicious fresh tomatoes in the kitchen. The house was clean and tidy, and the beds were comfortable. Patricia was available for anything we needed and went out of her way to make our stay extra special, one time even bringing us a slice of delicious homemade coconut cream pie. The location is in a quaint neighborhood a stone's throw from Hal's Grocery Store, Ocean Hole, and a few restaurants. Beach access is easy to either side of the island, and Rock Sound is a perfect location for day trips to Cape Eleuthera or Lighthouse Beach.

  • To anyone looking for somewhere to stay while in Eleuthera, this place is superb.

  • Just like in the pictures — a secluded beachfront paradise! While this place is perfect for families, we also found it to be a romantic retreat for two. Between long beach walks, quiet dinners and hot-tubbing under the stars, we loved our time at La Bella Vita. Sara is a prompt and helpful communicator, and by renting her car we appreciated an airport greeting and thoughtful follow-up from Ken. Thanks to the wonderful book of local hot-spots Sara put together we had a blast at fish fry in Governor’s Harbor and found a spectacular secluded beach she recommended.

    James2020-01-28T00:00:00Z
  • Awesome place, awesome location, awesome beach. Highly recommend staying here. Totally quiet location. Sara provides all the outdoor toys adults and children will enjoy. Had a blast Kayaking, Wake Boarding, snorkeling (lots of fish), walking the beach in search of shells. One can spend your entire trip and never leave the property. Will definitely be back............... :-)

    Gilbert2019-11-01T00:00:00Z
  • Great spot for a quiet vacation. The island is very uninhabited which is nice for a peaceful vacation. The location of the home is perfect as it is right on the beach. Not ideal spot to swim as the water level is very low for a distance which is great for kids however adults would have to venture far out to swim. Didn’t matter as there are plenty of beautiful beaches locally to swim at. Bring cash as debit and credit cards are not accepted in many places. Also recommend renting a car from Sara as it is not only convenient it is necessary to get around the island as many restaurants and activities are a drive from the home. The raw natural beauty of the island is second to none. The locals are very friendly and accommodating. Prices for food are extremely expensive no matter where you go so be prepared. However food is amazing especially if you like fish. Bring lots of bug spray as we were bit by mosquitoes and sand fleas towards the end of our trip and are still itching days later. With regard to Sara’s home it is a perfect spot for family or a group of adults. Well appointed and cared for beach home which is not an easy feat. It has everything you need for a beach vacation from extra beach towels to beach chairs and toys. We would highly recommend Sara’s home if you are visiting Eleuthera as it is close to local airports and an all around great home base for your trip.

  • Sara's house is just like the pictures, even nicer, it really is paradise. Its comfy, well equipped, clean and the beach and hot tub are amazing. Ken the manager looked after us and helped when we needed him. I'd say you could do a big shopping on arrival and stay in the house without renting a car as the house is incredible and has an incredible beach. That being said it would be a shame not to visit the island, and you can't do it without a car (we rented Sara's car) and Google will take you everywhere quite precisely, just download the map before you leave, this way you won't use data. There are potholes everywhere on the road, you'll have to learn to dodge them, feels a bit like Mario Kart :-) Remember they drive on the left side in the Bahamas. You can drive to North Eleuthera in about 1h30 and then grab a taxi boat to harbour island for 5$. On arrival you can rent a golf cart for 50$/day (try and negiciate the price if you use for less than 3 hours). The pink sand beach on harbour island is the most incredible thing you'll see in your life, we went in October and there was literally no one on that beach, made it look surreal. On your way to the North of the island you'll get to see all the major towns, and see the glass window bridge, you can stop on the side to take pictures, we even climbed up for a better view. There are shops and restaurants everywhere around the house within 15/20 minutes drive. Everything is expensive there, shops and especially restaurants which (like in America) don't include tax or gratuity in their prices that are already high, count easily 50$ minimum for a couple of drinks and a couple of dishes. So we ate at home a lot, the house is perfectly equipped with everything you need for cooking plus has a big fridge / freezer. Apart from that we still tried a few restaurants; the Fishbone in Savannah Sound, food OK and place quite nice; the Frigate in Rock Sound, our favourite, excellent food, lovely terrace; And the 1648 (French Leave Hotel) in Governors Harbor, extra expensive but excellent food and service, and amazing view. We bought fish and lobster from the Dock in Tarpum Bay one day. The fisherman fishes in the morning, go around 1 or 2pm. Its the best value for money and the fresh fish was a real treat we cooked it on the BBQ it was delicious. We enjoyed a dip in the sea most days, the water is so warm and transparent, paddle board and kayaks were a lot of fun, be careful when the sea is really quiet there are jelly fish, you see them on the beach, we avoided swimming those days. As for the bugs they definitely are everywhere on the island and you will get bitten, but it didn't ruin our holiday or stopped us from wanting to go back, just use bug spray, you'll be fine. The Bahamians are the nicest people, so polite friendly and helpful. I could talk for hours about the island and hope my experience will help some of you. Fair to say I recommend Sara's House warmly, and Sara herself was the nicest host, communication was perfect and she gave us a lot of helpful information. Thank you for everything!

  • We really enjoyed our stay at La Bella Vita. The location cannot be beat. The house is right on a beautiful private beach, and fairly centrally located on Eleuthera. The house was beautiful and nicely decorated. Clean white with just small touches of color gives a lot of natural light and provides a gorgeous framing for the beautiful turquoise water views. The beds and sheets were super-comfortable, each room had A/C, and there were plenty of beach towels and other beach toys. The kitchen was also nicely equipped with lots of appliances, and there was lots of tableware and silverware. Also some basics, like salt, pepper, and a few spices. There are some basic paper supplies provided, which should get you through a few days. The communication with the host was clear and detailed. We also appreciated the "island guide" book that the host put together with lots of information about the island, emergency services, beaches, restaurants, etc. The caretaker of the house was also very helpful and quick to respond. Overall, a fantastic experience - I have already recommended it to many friends and co-workers, and hopefully will be coming back! :) One tip for fellow travelers: during our stay we lost running water and electricity a few times. It's an island-wide thing, and nothing wrong with the house. So you might want to have a spare pot or bucket of water on standby, so you don't get stuck with no water.

    Anastasia2019-09-16T00:00:00Z
  • We had wonderful stay are planning a return trip. The beach was perfect. We swam and snorkeled every day. The house was perfect for our family. Our kids were entertained with toys in the house. The central location was very convenient for exploring the island. The bugs are bad, but that just seems to be a way of life in Eleuthera. We will be back!

    Kristen2019-06-08T00:00:00Z
  • Great location the house was perfect

    Rick2019-01-26T00:00:00Z
  • We loved our time in Eleuthera. The beauty of the beaches, the quiet of the Caribbean, the waves of the Atlantic, and the kindness and genuine friendliness of the Eleuthera people. We enjoyed Lighthouse Beach, Seabreeze for conch, Frigates for the wonderful food, and Sunset Inn for cracked conch and chicken. We also enjoyed French Leave Resort for dinner, as well as Davaughn sweeting, a chef who came to the house for the best meal on the island (highly recommend doing this). He was wonderful! We enjoyed the house, beautiful sunsets, and peacefulness of La Bella Vita.

    Rock Sound, South Eleuthera, Bahamas

    If you like privacy this 1 Bedroom Full bath is for you! Minutes from the beach and town this bush bungalow gives guest a real island experience with the amenities of home. Take off by car or bikes through lush jungle beach roads and explore Winding Bay, Half Sound, and Quarter Sound. Located minutes away are over 30 square miles of secluded beaches, bays, coastal reef systems, inlets, mangroves and all on a direct Atlantic Ocean backdrop. Just one of the hidden gems in South Eleuthera!
    Come stay with us! Guest Suite has private entrance, AC, Wi-Fi, and comes fully furnished, even has burgeoning farm out back! Bedroom equipped with a T.V. DVD player, and has a ceiling fan. Full bathroom has sink, linen closet, toilet, and shower and another shower outside for gear. There is also a small refrigerator, coffee maker, and induction burner to be able to cook small meals but not a full kitchen or stove. The Guest Suite is in a secluded forest with no one around but the birds and the sound of the wind in the trees. There is a little farm out back that is usually full of organic produce. This is not a touristy, gimmicky experience but one that celebrates the Bahamian culture and customs with a local vibe. Let us know if you would like info on where to fish, free-diving, beach, snorkel or spear fish. Minutes away is the settlement of Tarpum Bay, a sleepy fishing village where the locals still bring in their catch of the day and sell it on the dock in town. Go the other way and Winding Bay is your back yard with over 25 miles of secluded beaches, bays, coastal reef systems, inlets, mangroves minutes away. Whether it is exploring caves, snorkeling shallow reefs, photographing tropical fish, free-diving, spearing lobster, hand-lining for snapper, pole fishing off the rocks, shelling, or just finding a beach where you won't see anyone all day, this is what South Eleuthera is all about! We provide 2 bikes however renting a car is highly recommended. Garden and yard has banana, mango, avocado, sugar apple, lime, key lime, papaya, and guanabana trees, whatever is in season when your here. Along with vegetables are medicinal plants and herbs like aloe, meringa, turmeric, and ginger. Best time for garden is Nov-Aug but somethings usually our back. Maximum guests in the guest house is 2 adults and a child. We love the area and island, people and the culture and truly hope you have a fantastic time experiencing Eleuthera!
    Very private out of town near the beach location with no other houses in view.
  • Sharon was very supportive, polite and responsive. I really enjoyed staying at this clean, calm and quiet place. I highly recommend staying here. Thanks again Sharon

    William2020-02-03T00:00:00Z
  • Very clean, quiet, relaxing place to stay! Sharon was the best hostess from helping me rent a car to bringing me mangos and bananas! I would stay here again!

    Lynn2019-07-21T00:00:00Z
  • Very nice and private place to stay. Place was very clean and modern. Sharon added alot of nice little touches that made the stay that much more enjoyable. Overall definitely worth it and would stay again.

    Boris2019-01-01T00:00:00Z
  • Really great house. Sharon was easy to deal with and was an excellent snorkeling guide 2 spots per day. We caught our dinner and all the all we needed was in the garden or fridge. Perfect house for an island experience. I will return to the Sha Shack for sure.

    A bungalow just steps from one of the world's best beaches. Sleeps 6+ with 2BR/3BA, central air, outdoor shower. On private beach. Snorkeling, kayaking, swimming, shell hunting, and major relaxation. Wi-fi. Please contact me to confirm availability.
    Therabouts was the first house on this pristine pink sand beach. With the best spot on the beach and protected by Joseph's Cay, the gently sloping beach is safe and family friendly. The house was completely renovated in 2012.
  • Beautiful location. True paradise

    Shelly2019-05-23T00:00:00Z
  • Great house in an unbelievable location. Clean, open spaces in the home and the separated bedrooms were great for noise and privacy. The house manager was very responsive and helpful and that made the whole process very easy. Access to kayaks was a great bonus but all in all you can't beat the view. Hope to stay here again soon.

    Holly2018-03-20T00:00:00Z
  • Charles was great to work with. Communications were timely and clear. The house is exactly as described, exceptionally clean, and in really good condition for a remote island home that's right on the water. There were more towels than we could have used in the entire trip. Winding Bay, which is right out the back door, is unbelievable. Crystal clear water, powder-like sand, seashells, and starfish. The bay opens to the Atlantic so the water was cool and refreshing. Most days we had the bay to ourselves. We swam, paddled around in the two person kayak, played card games, and just unwound. Eleuthera is relaxed, easy going, and super friendly. The food is amazing. At Sammy's Place in Rock Sound I had the best fried plantains I've ever eaten. It is an island, so be prepared for the food prices and selection. It's still primarily a cash economy, though we did find a grocery store in nearby Rock Sound that took credit cards and had a number of foods we were used to in the US. All told this one one of my favorite vacations ever because of the spectacular location of this home.

    Eric2016-03-19T00:00:00Z
  • My wife and two college-age daughters booked this perfect bungalow for spring break, and it was just right for us. The house is located on the south end of a perfect pink sand beach arching around Winding Bay, it made for awesome walks on the beach. Lots of peace and quiet, we snorkeled and explored Eleuthera and had a grand time. Our host Charles Eaves was very responsive and gave us great information on some of the other details, like groceries and car rentals. We'll definitely be back!

    Bo2016-03-06T00:00:00Z
  • Very nice house in a great spot, everything you need is there and in order. The beach is tranquil and great for wading and walking. Local people are friendly and the small community has a pleasant ambience. Charles is very responsive, provides great information about the property in a 'house book' and can be easily reached to answer any questions. A perfect place to relax and enjoy the tropical ocean.

  • Chandra was a lovley host, we really enjoed the cottage. It is a wunderful little house with everything you need. Thank you so much !

    Michel2019-11-18T00:00:00Z
  • The house is set right next to a bar & grill that had great food & a beautiful view over the water.

    Bettina2019-09-24T00:00:00Z
  • The house at Rock Sound was fantastic and exactly as pictured and described! Don’t bother renting snorkel gear as there are 4 decent sets at the house that we enjoyed using. The location is great and far removed from touristy spots in the north. We enjoy vacations that are a little off the beaten track and this location allowed us to experience the real Eleuthera. We journeyed both north and south and found great beaches and were able to explore all the hidden spots without traveling for hours. The folks in Rock Sound are great and all communications about the house were accurate and timely. The house was spotless when we moved in. The layout is great with plenty of space for a family of four. Good appliances, good supply of dishes and cookware, the outside grill works great. The only thing to be aware of while visiting is the cost of groceries and gas. Don’t expect US prices on things. Include more for your food budget if you’re planning on cooking for a family. Restaurant prices are also on the high end. I’m very happy we chose this property. Eleuthera Vacation Rentals was fantastic from beginning to end.

    Geoff2019-04-13T00:00:00Z
  • Thank you very much for a great stay - We had a wonderful time and the house was super nice!

    Karin2019-03-11T00:00:00Z
  • Great Hosts. Great Service. Great House. Good location with nice views of Rock Sound and easy access to beautiful beaches on the south side of Eleuthera. Would definitely stay again.

    Ted2019-02-22T00:00:00Z
  • Matt & Tara's place is as described. We had everything we needed including washing machine, WiFi, and pots and pans. The market is down the road and has everything you need for your stay. Check-in was simple and everyone was very friendly and answered any questions we had.

    Melody2018-11-05T00:00:00Z
  • Sand Dollar Cottage is located in Rock Sound Eleuthera Bahamas which is a relatively undeveloped part of the island that we fell in love with. The house itself is lovely, clean, decorated perfectly, great A/C. great kitchen, comfy beds, wifi, TV Cable, and a full sized washer/dryer. There is plenty of dishes, kitchen ware, ect. The house is very close to the Caribbean but the water is very shallow and not the best for swimming in that area. so we went swimming frequently at Rosie's Northside Restaurant beach which is about 5-7 minutes away by car. There is very little tourism there and very little infrastructure but there is a bank and supermarket very close by within walking distance and a restaurant called Frigates to the left side of the house which has a good menu, full bar, and very good food. We also went to Wild Orchids which is just a few minutes away which is also on the water and has great food. My favorite was the grouper creole style. We absolutely fell in love with Rosie's Northside Restaurant beach. Unfortunately Rosie was not open for the restaurant business during our stay due to an injury but we will be back for her cooking and enjoy the beautiful pink sand beach in front of her business. We rented a car from friendly bob who was very helpful. I recommend an SUV if you want to explore the beaches such as Lighthouse Point Beach becahse the road is like a Jurassic Park trail with major potholes and volcanic rock. We had a charter fishing trip out of Davis Marina with Captain Gibson and hauled in over 30 fish the first day! We went to Cape Eleuthera for a shark dive and also went diving on the wall which was beautiful! The sharks were amazing to swim with until they came straight at you within a foot before turning away! We went out spear fishing with some locals called Lord Josh and Josh and had a blast. We also rented a boat at Cape Eleuthera for some relaxing time on some sand bars in the crystal clear Caribbean. If you want top just relax in the water I would suggest bringing pool floats as none of the stores sell beach gear. Ocean Hole was a blast with jumping off the rocks into the water which is said to be bottomless. We went into Governer's Harbour about 40 minutes away for the fish fry on Friday night and partied with the locals although we ate at Tippy's on the beach and had breakfast at the Buccaneer Club which were both great! We went to Harbour Island which is almost 2 hours away and had a great time at the Coral Sands Hotel Beach and went horse back riding in the surf with Marty. Overall the island is very underdeveloped with the exception of Harbour Island with a lot of potholes in the road so drive slow and very little signs or...

    Gaylene2018-07-08T00:00:00Z
  • Amazing, fantastic, a dream :). That was a house of my dream. When I get rich - I definitely will buy/build the same ). In cottage you have everything you need, from barbecue to snorkeling. So - take minimum stuff to your vacation, because you will have all in the apartments already. Also recommend restaurant near apartments - very tasty, the chief cook is very cool! Beaches - recommend Whiteland beach and Lighthouse. Maybe a little bit discomfort to drive to the beach, but it worth it!

Very pleasant location outside the house under the trees. This place is definitely a special one ! Diana is very reactive anytime you have a request and Ken, the property manager, will help you as soon as you have a request.

    Francois2020-02-22T00:00:00Z
  • We loved our stay in Diana's house, she did a lot of work in the kitchen and the bathrooms are new. The kitchen has everything you need to prepare several meals and the kitchen is very pleasant to live and makes a nice common room with the playroom next very practical and well placed. The mattresses are good too. The house is fully protected from mosquitoes no need to bring mosquito nets to the beds. And thank you for the canoes and paddle we took advantage. Everything was perfect and the hosts responsive to our requests. You have to like being quiet because few restaurants and not really bar around. It is a place of reunion and family holidays not really near the outputs or restaurants just to report it. And by cons super snorckeling not far from the house by car Thank you for everything!

  • House is great. Lovely setting, beach and proximity is amazing. So much sea life just meters from the shoreline. We barely left the house for the week. If you want some quiet quality time with the family, this is ideal. Thanks to the caretakers and Diana. We will be back again for sure.

    Graham2019-08-15T00:00:00Z
  • A beautiful place in paradise and a great house with everyhing you need. Our little daughter especially loved all the toys and open space and the beach. Craig organized everything perfectly and provided a lot of information. We also received quick help when we had a little car accident. Overall a wonderful experience.

    Robert2019-05-11T00:00:00Z
  • Beautiful large house adjacent to a private gorgeous beach!

    Maria2019-01-19T00:00:00Z
  • This was a great location and great value. We would definitely return.

    Patti2018-12-23T00:00:00Z
  • Perfect location for families with small kids. Our son 3y loved the pirate room and the abundance of toys in the house and on the beach. Beach is shallow, no waves and plenty of sand for the kids to play. The grown ups enjoyed the kayak and the SUB. Craig also has some fishing rods available. Very helpful people on the island. We enjoyed our time!

    Christian2018-08-17T00:00:00Z
  • Craig’s home is truly a little piece of paradise. The setting was perfection - the water was warm and welcoming. Our family of 6 was very comfortable in the 5 bedrooms available - plenty of space to spread out and relax. The screened in porch was probably my favorite place at the house - and my younger kids loved having a toy room and lots of books. Craig provided a tremendous wealth of information about getting to Eleuthera and preparing for our trip - I was very grateful! We found Craig’s sea glass ‘spot’ and had one of our best mornings snorkeling and exploring that unique spot. We found tons of sea glass treasure. The beach in the back yard was perfection - sea life in the rocks, beautiful shells and sand, kayaks and SUPs. We spent hours floating, snorkeling and exploring. We WILL visit again.

  • Karen is a wonderful host and her place is perfect. So clean, nicely decorated and perfect location.

    Morgan2020-01-19T00:00:00Z
  • This is where you want to be. Best place in the area by far!!!! Karen’s place is so clean, decorated so nicely and is in a perfect location. From the moment I make the reservation the communication with Karen was great. She asked if I’ve been here before, if I needed to rent a car or needed a taxi. She was on it! We had a large group and her place was perfect for that. This place was soOooooooo nice, we will be back again in January.

    Morgan2019-11-24T00:00:00Z
  • The Pilot House is a few miles from Rock Sound Airport. You will want to rent a 4 WD to explore all the hard to get to beaches. Karen supplies everything else you will need to enjoy yourselves. Cooler, umbrella, beach towels, snorkel equipment and of course a lovely oasis to return to at days end. She provides info, books, etc on local beaches, attractions and restaurants. She has a fantastic garden where you can sit and relax and listen to the palms in the breeze. Great stay!

    Lisa2019-07-24T00:00:00Z
  • We have been visiting Eleuthera for 5 years and the Pilot House is by far the nicest property that we have stayed. Everything was new and the place was well designed and immaculate. Karen was and awesome host and super friendly and accommodating. We will definitely be staying at her property again.

    Victor2019-07-19T00:00:00Z
  • Karen's Airbnb was one of the best airbnb's I've stayed at in my many years of traveling. Not only is her place so beautiful, comfortable, stylish and clean, she was absolutely the best host. Communication from the start, throughout my trip until after were fluid with super quick responses. She provides all the tips you need in Eleuthera, which beaches to go to, restaurants, bars, markets, etc. Location: Her airbnb is located within a 5 minute drive from Rock Sound Airport (south Eleuthera) so it is best to fly into there. Otherwise fly into Harbour Island which is about 40 minute drive. If flying in internationally, then you'll likely only be able to fly into North Eleuthera (ELH) which is about a 90 minute drive to the airbnb. A car rental is pretty much required during your stay and Karen can help arrange that. Karen's House: Located in a quiet residential neighborhood, though just a quick turn from the main road (Meridien Highway). Complete serenity, very quiet and safe. The house has 2 rooms which could be shared if other guests book the other room though we had the place to ourselves. The common area has comfortable couches, a table filled with a Coffee maker, Tea, Keurig and Utensils. Microwave and small fridge is included in each room as well as air conditioning. Very comfortable bed, clean spacious room/bathroom in room. The place is beautiful decorated as a beach-style home with quality furniture. There is a SiriusXM station where you can play music throughout the day and various lighting to set the mood. Karen has also thoughtfully included Beach Towels, Snorkels and Beach Tent for you to use during your stay. Outside patio area with complete furniture where you can lounge outside. Karen lives in a separate house on property so you have the privacy you need yet she's within reach if you need anything. Communication: Any question you have, Karen has an answer to as she's lived in Eleuthera for several years and is passionate about the island. I would very highly recommend her airbnb, not only because it's an incredibly clean and beautiful place, but because meeting Karen will certainly enhance your Eleuthera experience!

    Jacki2019-06-04T00:00:00Z
  • Karen's home is so beautiful and thoughtfully planned out. The location is very convenient. We were warmly welcomed by Karen even though we had arrived several hours early. The bedroom was comfortable and extremely private with all the amenities we expected. The common area was large, clean and comfortable, with many books on Eleuthera and places to see. I really appreciated how informative Karen was. She offered many suggestions on beaches to seek out, places to travel to and restaurants to visit. We felt so welcome and truly at home. We hope to be back soon.

    Jill2019-05-16T00:00:00Z
  • Love it here. Way more beautiful in person. Karen was very helpful and informative. It’s very relaxing and cozy. Will be visiting again soon!

    Alderie2019-05-13T00:00:00Z
  • After spending a few days in the north part of Eleuthera, we headed south to check out this part of the island. Karen was such a wonderfully gracious host. Her space is truly beautiful. It feels like our idea of classic Bahamian style. And Karen didn't miss a beat with her thoughtful amenities and stylish touches throughout the space. From the island music as you step in the door, lovely scent, comfy chairs and bed, a complete coffee bar, mini fridge in the room for our snacks, large beautiful bathroom and shower, and nice bedding. The outdoor deck was a perfect place to enjoy our morning coffee before heading out for our daily adventures. She thought of everything to make this space an experience that you don't want to leave! She gave us several suggestions from fishing, local beaches and restaraunts. We especially loved the Frigate's Bar and Grill. We ate there each night of our stay because of the sunset view over the water and great food, drinks and friendly staff. We highly recommend Karen's Pilot House when you travel to Eleuthera. We will be back...hopefully very soon.

    Rock Sound, South Eleuthera, Bahamas

    Fall asleep 50 feet from the turquoise sea. Great snorkelling, swimming, shelling and relaxing right outside the door. Not just a vacation rental, but a beautifully designed home with all the amenities you will need for a comfortable stay. Comfy furniture, stylish, well-equipped cook's kitchen, great view. Good for couples, friends travelling in a group and kid friendly. Close to Rock Sound airport (15 mins) and Governors Harbour (30 mins). 5 minutes from the quaint town of Tarpum Bay.
    Newly built in 2014.
    Tarpum Bay is the quintessential Eleuthera town. People are extremely friendly in this waterfront village and you will have an experience that will keep you coming back time and time again. Great beaches and adventures down every dirt road. Bring lots of cash (US$ or B$ are used interchangeably). Very few places (Rock Sound Market and 700 Islands Liquor store, restaurants in Governors Harbour) take cards. Most places are closed on Sundays.
  • Everything was as good or better than we expected. Joanna provided excellent information that made our trip so smooth. The car we rented for the full 2 weeks was a bargain and made our adventures so convenient. Having the "water toys" was awesome. Our daily kayaking was a delight. The kitchen was very well stocked and everything was comfortable with a homey feel. Thanks again for the wonderful service.

    Pat2020-02-22T00:00:00Z
  • Baha Mara is a wonderful Airbnb. It is a beautiful modern house with amble space for the 4 of us. The location is also great. It is a beautiful spot that is private but also a few minutes away from a grocery store and small community.

    Chelsea2019-12-23T00:00:00Z
  • The house was open and had great views of the water. We used the kayaks everyday and got to see nurse sharks and rays. Eleuthera was loaded with beautiful beaches with little to no one else there. Would definitely book this trip/house again.

    Bradley2019-06-16T00:00:00Z
  • This is a lovely home, just as described! It was wonderful to be right on the water with the paddle board and kayaks! Our 3 kids (including a 4-year old) were able to safely play by themselves. The location is great because you can easily get to the Island's northern and southern attractions. The only downside are the bugs, which are pretty aggressive in the evening. But if you're armed with extra-duty bug spray, you'll be fine.

    Cleo2019-06-06T00:00:00Z
  • Friends, Baha Mara is truly a jewel on Eleuthra. My wife and I had a great time just by ourselves, and after staying at this beautiful home we wish we had brought some friends along to enjoy as well! Joanna a John are fabulous hosts, always willing to share the secret spots on the island that they obviously love so much. We very much look forward to returning to Baha Mara time and again in the future.

    Sean2019-05-31T00:00:00Z
  • Baha Mara is ideal for a visit at Eleuthera. It is well situated, truly beautiful and modern. You have everything needed to feel at home. I would recommend it to anyone. A piece of paradise at your disposal. Thierry et Julie.

    Thierry2019-02-13T00:00:00Z
  • Joanna’s place is a little paradise! Everything you need is there. Kayak, paddle board, snorkeling equipment. The house is so beautiful inside and out! Check in was very easy and the communication as well. I would definitely recommend and hopefully come back! Thank you!!

    Iza2019-02-04T00:00:00Z
  • Beautiful home and property with everything you need for a relaxing stay right on the Caribbean Sea. I’ve never seen the night stars shine so brightly as I did from the beach chairs out front!

    Cathleen2020-01-30T00:00:00Z
  • Absolutely no complaints ! I enjoyed my stay at this beautiful cottage , Laverne & Keith were amazing hosts .

    Michelle2019-08-02T00:00:00Z
  • The cottage was absolutely amazing, the locals were very inviting and eager to talk over a kalik. The house had a/c but only in the bedroom but don't let that stop you from choosing this wonderful little home just steps away from the crystal clear waters. Keith is one of the best communicators of the Airbnb's I've ever had, and his mother who helped us get from the airport to the cottage is the nicest lady you could ask for. If you plan on getting away from the crowded, noisy, and very gimiky places of Nassau and Freeport, look no further than this diamond in the rough. I promise you won't regret it.

    Savanna2019-04-13T00:00:00Z
  • We loved our stay. Great place!

    Diana2019-03-25T00:00:00Z
  • The cottage is a nice place to stay. Keith and her mom are great hosts. Keith mom gave us a ride from and to the Airport in rocksound. She is lovely! You'll need a car to explore the island, you can rent it directly from Keith mom.

    Michelle2019-03-22T00:00:00Z
  • The environment was clean and spacious. The host was very professional and welcoming. The home was beautiful and well kept. Definitely will be back.

    The Castle in Tarpum Bay, Eleuthera, formerly the home of Artist Gordon MacMillan-Hughes, was featured in Fodor's Travel guide and beautifully renovated in 2012. It still retains the original stained glass windows and natural walls inset with coral. Enjoy watching the sunset and sunrise along the bay on the rooftop balcony everyday.
    Tarpum Bay is one of the few remaining fishing-settlements of The Bahamas and provides a beautiful insight into Bahamian life.
  • This is a unique home in a lovely little town. Olivier and his family were incredibly welcoming and we thank them so much for their kind hospitality.

    Tarah2020-01-06T00:00:00Z
  • This is a really cool house with an interesting history. There were only four of us staying there, but that house can handle twice that number comfortably. The kitchen is well equipped with plenty of pots, pans, utensils and dishes. The location is perfect and is in perhaps the most quaint settlement in Eleuthera - Tarpum Bay. Olivier and his father were very responsive and proved to be great hosts. There were plenty of people in the neighborhood who were also very friendly and helpful with information and suggestions for places to eat and things to see. One gentleman who lives up the street even offered to lead us to some caves in Rock Sound, which are totally worth visiting. The beach in Tarpum Bay is great for swimming and there are plenty of grocery stores, with one right at the bottom of the hill. As my daughter just said "what's not to love - it is a castle!"

    Sarah2019-06-13T00:00:00Z
  • This lovely and unusual home was very comfortable and perfect with a family with small children.—we were in two adjoining bedrooms on the first floor, one of which had a bunk bed plus trundle bed. They provided a crib, stroller, life vests to fit a 1 and 3 year old, and legos were a life saver entertaining our littles. Nice new clean linens, cool air conditioned rooms and living areas. The kitchen has everything one needs to cook all meals. Located in a quiet settlement. Come prepared with bug spray to do battle with the flies and sand fleas in Tarpum Bay. A perfect midpoint if you plan to visit both north and south Eleuthera. Our hosts went out of their way to be accommodating.

    Margotsita2019-05-20T00:00:00Z
  • We had a party of 4 staying at the castle. The rooms as spacious, kitchen is well equipped with everyday use items/ utensils, grocery stores are short drive from the house, and have everything you need if you choose to cook your own meal. In the living room there is a TV if you choose to get in touch with reality. Seaside bar that is located across the beach serves Starbucks coffee- they can even make custom made Frappuccino for you, as well as variety of different drinks, they also make fresh conch salad. We highly recommend this “ castle”

    Dorota2019-02-23T00:00:00Z
  • Unique house on a beautiful tropical island - a castle in the Bahamas no less. Interior is newly refurbished with the latest of everything. The view from the upper floor bedroom is nothing less than sensational. Most highly recommended!

    Thomas2017-03-21T00:00:00Z
  • The castle was a very lovely and cozy place to stay, for 11 days. Very clean, loved the large kitchen and the bedroom upstairs. I will miss my morning yoga on the top deck with the sunrise and sea view and the sunsets in the same location, at the end of the day. Olivier picked us up at the airport and brought us around the tiny village and showed us where to buy food, et. Olivier, thank you again for your patience the very first day when we left a piece of luggage at the airport. Your drive back with us the next morning to retrieve our luggage was just one of the many examples of the hospitality and genuine kindness of everyone on the island. Lovely, friendly and very happy people on the island of Eleuthera. It is a hidden gem with the most beautiful, natural and empty beaches in the world. We explored a new beach everyday. Your place is centrally located for all the highlights that Eleuthera has to offer. The fresh fish everyday on the docks in Tarpum was an added bonus. Spoiled with the freshness! Both my husband & I highly recommend this place to others! Becky & Jeff Feb. 2017

    Tarpum Bay, South Eleuthera, Bahamas

    This beautiful new 4 bedroom, 3.5 bath house is impeccably decorated. Walk into a beach-themed retreat with warm colors and large, inviting rooms. It features stainless steel appliances, a living room, family room, and dining area. The master has 4 walk-in closets and an ensuite bath. No expense was spared in furnishing this gorgeous home. A big front porch and 2 side patios invite you to relax outside. This home is minutes away from 30 miles of undeveloped beaches, mangroves, reefs, and bays.
    Minutes away is the settlement of Tarpum Bay, a sleepy fishing village where the locals still bring in their catch of the day and sell it on the dock in town. Go the other way and Winding Bay is your back yard with over 30 miles of secluded beaches, bays, coastal reef systems, inlets, mangroves minutes away. Whether it is exploring caves, snorkeling shallow reefs, photographing tropical fish, free-diving, spearing lobster, hand-lining for snapper, pole fishing off the rocks, shelling, or just finding a beach where you won t see anyone all day, this is what South Eleuthera is all about! Renting a car is highly recommended and we can assist if you like. Rock Sound International Airport is 10 minutes and Governors Harbour is 45 minutes away. Let us know if you would like info on where to fish, free-diving, beach, snorkel or spear fish. We have maps of the island inside the home and the manager lives within walking distance so you will have a local there to help should you have questions or need assistance.
  • Our stay at Sharon’s place was amazing! The house is HUGE, accommodating our large family. It was very easy to find, and in a secluded, private area. The air conditioning in all the bedrooms was especially a treat after our long summer days under the sun in Eleuthera! Sharon was a great host, arranging special treats for us - local produce and seafood, as well as giving us tips about go to’s on the island. Overall it was a great stay, I’d definitely recommend this place and also stay here again when I visit Eleuthera. The island is a gorgeous place, with lots and lots to see!

    Herdessa2019-07-16T00:00:00Z
  • A tranquil environment and comfortable atmosphere . Perfect for an island getaway. It has everything you would need .

    Chrystal2019-06-29T00:00:00Z
  • Sharon's place is amazing! The house is very clean and modern. Great island chic style, you feel the essence of the beautiful Eleuthera island in the house. Its also really close to a great beach. Thank you Sharon and thank you for being an amazing host.

    Lavado2019-06-23T00:00:00Z
  • This beautiful Caribbean bay-blue house is a joy to discover on its quiet, rural road in south Eleuthera. The home is as enjoyable and beautiful as the beaches minutes away. Sharon stopped by and dropped off local produce and directed us to a bay with miles of remote beaches and one with turtles. As a tour guide, she’s a great resource! She was also very accommodating. The house is great for a large group with 4 baths, 4 large bedrooms and sleeper sofas. Coffee on the patio with the song birds was a pleasure. Loved the dining room furniture and reef-themed couch. We could only stay 2 nights but it was wonderful. Thank you.

    Jay2019-06-19T00:00:00Z
  • The house is amazing. It's a little bit difficult to find it the first time, but then it 's really easy. You will find huge spaces inside, clean rooms, well equipped kitchen and lots of fornitures. The house is not opposite the beach but it's located in a key position in the South, so you can easily reach all the best beaches of the Island by car. The host Sharon is absolutely kind and friendly. She helped us to find a van and vegetables( that are a little bit difficult to find in the Island). Even when one of us was ill, she helped her to recover. To sum up, the structure, the host and the Island are stunning and I really recommend them!

    Diego2019-02-22T00:00:00Z
  • This house is perfect for a family or even two as the lower bedroom has its own bathroom. The location was great as it is close to Winding Bay -one of the most beautiful beaches south of Governors Harbor. It is also minutes to Rock Sound where you can have lunch or dinner on the water at Frigates and other nice restaurants. Sharon is a super host ( and will be one on Airbnb once this little gem gets discovered). She has vast knowledge of the island and is in tune with the best local activities and events and she was excited to share them with me on my visit. The house is great and I will definitely book it on my next trip to Eleuthera!

    Peter2019-02-06T00:00:00Z
  • This house is a beautiful house perfect for one big family or two smaller families. With four big bedrooms, plenty of bathrooms and a good hang out area around the kitchen this was a perfect place for us being two families living together for 8 days. It’s not walking distance to the beach but with a car you can easily go to beaches both south, middle and north of the island. And yes, you will need a car on Eleuthera. Sharon, the hostess, has been a wonderful hostess giving great tips about which beaches to go to for best snorkeling or best beaches for relaxing. She also helped us do some grocery shopping when our flight was totally delayed arriving to Eleuthera. She also helped us with contacts renting a car when booking this house, which we are very great full for. We are really happy with our week on Eleuthera filled with adventures, the best beach life ever and peaceful nights a this beautiful blue house.

    Winding Bay, Bahamas

    Property is conveniently located in the heart of the settlement of Tarpum Bay with bay front panoramic views. Close proximity to shops, local restaurants, churches and local markets and within walking distance to the beach. Located 12 miles from Rock Sound Airport ad 52 miles from Governor's Harbour ports ( air and sea).
    A private two bedroom cottage with living and dining room, kitchen and bathroom overlooking the waterfront.
    The cottage overlooks the waterfront and local dock where fishermen sell their daily catch. It is approximately 50 feet from the local beach. Very close to the food store, local restaurants and bayfront fish fry and conch salad stalls. Churches of various religious traditions are within walking distance. It is situated in the middle of a quaint, quiet community of friendly folk.
  • This is a neat spot in the middle of Tarpum Bay, 1 block from the shore, the fishing docks, and a couple of bars and restaurants. It is a place to escape and relax in a pretty basic setup.

    Tarpum Bay, Eleuthera , Bahamas

    Originally built in 1828, Culmer Cottage was restored into a modern sea side home. It is close to groceries, restaurants, and the fishing dock. Its central location on the island permits easy access north or south. My cottage is fully equipped including beach towels and chairs, and a full kitchen. Ceiling fans in all rooms. Both bedrooms are air conditioned. Tarpum Bay is safe and quaint. By choosing to rent in a settlement, you will interact with some of the world's most friendly people.
    If you want night life and lots of shopping, Eleuthera is not for you, if you want peace and reflection, beautiful beaches, clear water with close reefs to explore, come and stay.
    T Bay is very safe. You can walk any time. Locals are helpful and friendly. Fish dock is two blocks away, conch cafe is at the bottom of the hill, grocery and a small restaurant are across Lord street.
  • We had a wonderful time in Lynn's Cottage away from mass tourism in Nassau. Lynn is very nice and helpful and you can always ask Kervin for help. The island is beautiful with many lonely beaches and a lot to discover. Lynn's tips in a large booklet were also very helpful. We can only recommend the cottage and the surrounding area. Thank you for a great time!

Enjoy many meals with the family at the large dining are with ocean view (the dining room table seats 8, with additional seating in the adjacent screen room if needed). Beside the dining area is the living area, with sofa and chair seating for six. Spend hours relaxing, reading, and enjoying the spectacular views from this lovely space with its wall of windows facing west. The room we love best is our large, screened-in porch, just off the great room dining area, which projects out toward the sea and has spectacular ocean views on all three sides. It is furnished with wicker sofa and chairs, and a dining room table that seats four. Enjoy the sea breeze and watch the sunset over the Caribbean from this wonderful space. The main level of the house also has two large bedrooms, both with king beds, en-suite bathrooms, and flat-screen satellite TVs. One bedroom has an ocean view and one has a garden view. There is also a separate powder room on this level, just off the great room. Beside it is a foyer where we keep beach towels and water toys. The foyer opens out to the board walk which takes you down our oceanfront recreation area (more on that later). From the main level, take the spacious nautically themed stairwell down to the lower level. This level features an extra-large family room equipped with comfortable sofas, big TV, and a vast collection of games, books, and other entertainment.

Here we have a covered oceanfront gazebo four seaside lounging and entertaining. There is also a boat dock with a ladder down to the water. This protected area is great for swimming year-round, and offers excellent snorkeling and other water sports right in your back yard. There is also a boat ramp for launching our paddleboard and kayaks. And a brand new infinity pool with a beautiful view of the Caribbean Sea. Ready to hit the beach? Little Bay Beach, our little nearby beach, is 150 yards down the shore from Savannah Sunset House, or 3/10’s of a mile by dirt road. Walk there through the water at low tide, or ride on there on one of our bicycles. Ten Bay Beach, a mile-long Caribbean-side beach, is 3 or 4 minutes away by car. Amenities at Savannah Sunset include AC throughout, WIFI, satellite TV, cell phone, gas grill, kayaks, paddleboards, bikes, and more.
    Savannah Sunset is located just 20 minutes from Governors Harbour, the main town on Eleuthera. has grocery stores, restaurants, liquor stores, two banks with ATMs, a bakery, gift shops, a dive shop, and a medical clinic. It has a nice little collection of 19th century homes and churches overlooking a picturesque harbor. You can buy fresh fish and lobster every afternoon from fisherman at the town dock. Friday night Fish Fry in Governors Harbour is a street/beach party that brings together all the tourists and locals with food, drink, and dancing in the street. You won’t want to miss it. The town of Palmetto Point, just 10 minutes from the house, has several smaller stores and a good restaurant.
  • We spent 7 nights at Savannah Sunset with our 3 adult children and friends. The home is very bright, cheery and tropical. Upon our arrival, Virginia the housekeeper met us and allowed us to check in a bit earlier which was nice. The beds and linens were all very comfortable. Upon arrival it was noticed that both the pool was not clean, and the internet was not working. As we had several college students, and a couple people trying to accomplish some work, the internet was imperative. Both were resolved within a couple hours. The pool is an infinity pool, but unfortunately the overflowing part of the pool was not working, but we still found ourselves at the pool daily for a couple hours. We are a cooking family, and it was a well stocked kitchen with all the gadgets you could hope for! The beach, however is very rocky,. Dangerous, jagged rock. There is a very small section to enter the water, but we did notice a lot of sea urchins and sharp rocks. Beautiful to look at but a bit concerning especially if there are small children in your party. The enclosed porch in the back of the house was beautiful. We spent most of our evenings back there playing cards, reading or taking in the sunset. If I could recommend a couple things 1.) fix the dishwasher that was not bolted in and tipped out each time we went to load and unload, dropping all the dishes. 2.) Have the dryer maintained as it never dried clothes we put in it. We would recommend this home for a rental. The beaches were very close, Ten Bay and Double Bay. This was very convenient as we did not swim at the house beach but maybe a dip. A beautiful home, and most tropical. Thank you!

    Tammy2020-03-02T00:00:00Z
  • This house, Savannah Sunset, is beautiful, very clean, had everything we could ever want. we had fun using the various dishes, glasses, etc., such imaginative settings. we would have dinner on plates with octopus designs, then drinks in glasses with starfish on them. what a great touch! i'm pretty sure we used nearly every dish, platter, glass, etc. in the house. bliss really. the kitchen was perfect and had everything we needed and then some, the dining room a nice size and with a view outside, the living room comfy. the screened porch in front is where we had our morning coffee and watched the sun light up the water. we loved sitting down on the covered dock area, jumping in and out to snorkel and hang. we made friends with the sargeant majors and the little yellow ray that live right off the front. we saw a lot of different tropical fish, snorkeling was good. Just a few miles north is the wonderful Island Organic Farm store ( island grown produce, fresh baked goods, homemade sauces etc.), everything we ate was grown or caught on the island, lots came from the store above, yum. we were lucky enough to catch pineapple season and had fresh pineapple very day!! beautiful sandy beaches are short car rides from the house, check out the atlantic side for nice clear waves and white sand. wonderful stay in a beautiful house. thank you.

    Elsie2019-06-15T00:00:00Z
  • We had a great stay at Savannah Sunset. Our party of 8 had plenty of room. We enjoyed the kayaks, SUP, and paddleboard everyday.

    Amy2019-03-20T00:00:00Z
  • From the moment we walked into the home we were impressed by the design and layout of the space. Everyday I noticed something different that added to the Caribbean feel! The beds, pillows, towels, sheets were of the very best quality and there were lots available for our group of 10. The layout gave family members space and privacy so we never felt crowded. The kids stayed downstairs where they enjoyed movies at night. Every morning and evening we enjoyed ocean sunsets. The cabana was fabulous to get out of the sun and the pool was a great addition to cool off. We snorkelled, used the kayaks, paddle boarded right out in front. These were all provided! We saw groupers, dolphins, stingrays, barracuda and trumpet fish right in front! We highly recommend this location if you are looking for privacy and a peaceful setting. This home was a dream come true for our family.

    Carol2019-01-30T00:00:00Z
  • This was one of the most beautiful places I have ever stayed in, both the house, and the location! It was like a little private piece of paradise! We will definitely come back!

    Cozy Island home nestled near outskirts of town. A beautifully self-sufficient 2 bed, 2 bath apartment with a breathtaking view of Charley's Bay & the Rock Sound Harbor. Just seconds away from the picturesque Bahamian waters, this modern fully-furnished apartment is truly a home away from home.
    The rooms are large and spacious with much space for rest and relaxation.
  • This home is situated high on a hill just South of Rock Sound overlooking a bay. Great location to walk down to the shoreline and watch the sunset. There is a good breeze on the hill too. The home is very nice and newly built. There are air conditioners in the bedrooms only. Kitchen and living area are well appointed and the appliances are all brand new. Tamika met us at the airport which was a nice welcome and she offers very helpful suggestions for grocery shopping and even rushed us to the store to get supplies before it closed at 5pm. If you arrive by Bahamasair, note that the main grocery store closes at 5pm but there are other smaller gas stations and stores that remain open later.

    Rock Sound, South Eleuthera, Bahamas

    My cottage is a beach house with an almost private beach located on the beautiful island of Eleuthera in the Bahamas. This is an island where you can escape the hustle and bustle and relax for some time. There are numerous other beaches on the island to explore.
    Our cottage is designed with an open floor plan that allows guests to socialize with each other while they enjoy the view of the water and amazing sunsets. We have two French doors each leading to one of the two wide porches located on either side of the house. They both have comfortable furniture for guests to enjoy the view. There is a barbecue area on the beach along with picnic tables, lounge chairs with a covered area for protection from the sun if desired.
    I have no immediate neighbors but there are houses further down the beach. This means that most of your visit you will see very few or no other people as you enjoy the beach and water in front of the cottage.
  • This is a very nice and quaint house. It is right on the beach and the beach is very private. You do need to bring water shoes to cause the ocean floor can be rather rocky but this is a great place to stay.

    Nathaniel2020-01-08T00:00:00Z
  • Barbara's home is in a fantastic location on the island!!! Very close to great grocery stores (Cost Cutters) with variety and good prices. You can see the Caribbean from the main bedroom, and both the front and the back of home have wonderful porches!!! To have the freedom to walk steps away to the beach anytime you want, really makes it so easy to not want to leave!!! Barbara had both her sister and brother ready available to help with any questions. Her brother stopped in twice to make sure things were running properly. I've stayed at over a dozen places throughout the past couple years on Eleuthera and Barbara's place is an excellent value for the money. She was very well stocked with kitchen supplies and spices. I will absolutely return to this location based on affordability and convenience. Great place for a young family as the beach is shallow for small children and you can walk for hours!!!!!! A little slice of paradise!!!

  • We had a long drive after a day on a boat in Spanish wells (I recommend!). We pulled in around 10pm exhausted and were thrilled to see how beautiful Karen’s place was. She greeted us and helped us unload. Karen helped with tips throughout the trip and went above and beyond helping us. FABULOUS beach near her that is secluded. Great meals out and we walked to breakfast at the nearby hotel. No kitchen or laundry but great coffee and we could pick up things to get by. They helped us with clean beach towels each day. Coffee and happy hour were special On her front deck (but we always went to the water for sunset :-)). We are a couple with three college kids and we used three of the four units which worked out great bc each had its own bathroom. Beautifully decorated, top quality beds and amenities. Loved the vibe of Rock sound and spending time In The south (lighthouse beach! Friggets bar and grill). Plan to return!

    Mary2020-01-03T00:00:00Z
  • To all you potential bookers.... you have to book this palace. Look no further than the Pilot House. You won’t be disappointed.

    Tarpum Bay, South Eleuthera, Bahamas

    My place is close to the airport of Rock Sound and the beaches of Cotton Bay and Wemyss Bight. You’ll love my place because of the ambiance, the outdoors space, the peaceful location with a very large garden all around the house. It is located near Cape Eleuthera and the Light House Beach. My place is good for couples, for people that are into fishing, for families (with kids), and people that like to travel with their pets. The house is quite near to the Island School. About 10 mile drive.
    The house is located in a very silent and cosy ambiance right in the back of Cotton Bay beach, with a lush tropical forest all around. It is a very smart position to start dayly trips because it is very near all main South Eleuthera attractions such as the must see Light House Beach, Ocean Hole park in Rock Sound, Cape Eleuthera and many good fishing spots all over the Atlantic and Caribean side of the Ocean. The house is quite near to the Island School. We are connected to the main water line; it was costly but worth it. Tap water is purified public water. We also still have the water tank in the back of the house that is good rain water to wash fishing gear and for the plants. The well is now disconnected but a hand pump is there to get water in case of necessity.. So we have water, plenty of it!
    We only have a few neighbours. The house is very silent and cosy. The house is quite near to the Island School. About ten mile drive towards Cape Eleuthera. For any assistance refer to Ship To Shore Restaurant. The owner is the lady who takes care of our house.
  • It’s perfectly located in between Rock Sound and Lighthouse Point. It is also a two min drive to ship to shore which is a nice local bar and restaurant.

    Don2019-07-09T00:00:00Z
  • Lovely home with everything you need for Eleuthera Very safe neighborhood

    Malcolm2019-01-20T00:00:00Z
  • Spacious home with lots of outdoor space for relaxing; great location near Rock Sound Airport. Perfect size for two couples or a small family. The area is quiet and near beautiful, deserted beaches (maybe 1 mile away). Andrea is very responsive to all communication and his instructions excellent. A high clearance vehicle is preferable to make it down the dirt road.

    Sabrina2018-11-19T00:00:00Z
  • The house and property were perfect, off the beaten path, very comfortable and relaxing. Once you get your bearings there’s beach access a couple minutes away and so much to explore. Andrea was a great host and even tho I didn’t meet him in person seemed like a very cool guy. I was traveling a lot to the island school for parents weekend which worked out well as it’s about 20-25 drive.

    Andrew2018-07-27T00:00:00Z
  • We very much enjoyed our stay at Casa Bahamas during the Island School’s parents’ weekend! Although the drive to the school is about 20 min., this was a perfect location for us. The cottage is secluded and provides basic amenities. It was very clean and spacious for two (easily enough room for a family of four!) and the support we had from Shantell at the Ship to Harbor restaurant close by was great!! Andrea and his wife Stephanie were very responsive in answering any questions and addressing the minor hiccup we had with the key transfer on checkin. As a word of advice to other first-timers on the island: don’t fly Silver Airways (completely unreliable), don’t rent a car from Royal Williams (too expensive and very beaten down car that was barely road legal even in the Bahamas), but DO rent this place if you are looking for good value for your money.

    Helge2018-05-27T00:00:00Z
  • Lovely secluded modern cottage close to Cotton Bay. The owner is responsive, neighborhood feels safe and the aircon worked well! With a car this makes an excellent base for exploring South Eleuthera for diving etc. Enjoy, we had a great time!

    Louise2017-07-25T00:00:00Z
  • Thanks to Andrea we had an amazing stay! The house is really nice and charming with all you need inside. To visit south Eleuthera it is the perfect place, calm and quiet but also close to everything by car. It is really clean and you have a big fridge if you want to shop all you groceries in once. The environment is quite wild, with no much people, but a very nice restaurant about 2 minutes drive where you can eat fresh fish, ask for advices, they are super helpful. We strongly recommand to rent an SUV car, because in the Bahamas there are many durt roads and you will be safer, especially if you want to go to the lighthouse beach (which is absolutely a must-see, best beach ever at least!!). Andrea could arrange this rent for us as well as a day trip to the Exumas, where you can swim with the pigs, snorkell at the Thunderball grotto, and chill at the Staniel Cay Yatch Club. Julie&Bruno

    Julie2017-05-07T00:00:00Z
  • We just had a splendid time at Andrea's. The very beautiful house and the garden are even bigger than we thought and the beaches around amazing. it's very cool that Andrea even provides snorkelling equipment. The kitchen is fully équipes so that you can do nice dinners. We recommand to every one to join Andrea's place you will have a wonderful time!

    Located between the settlements of Rock Sound and the fishing village of Tarpum Bay. There are many beaches and sights within minutes .
  • This place was exactly as advertised and we had a great stay on Eleuthera. Our host gave us some good local tips, which was great as we did explore quite a bit of the area and out islands. Had a nice new propane stove and for us to use which was great because we are not the type of travellers to eat out every night. There was a beautiful conservatory/sunroom to have dinner in which was amazing. Would recommend without hesitation. Great hosts! Say hi to Tiki and Sushi for us when you go!

    Daniel2019-06-01T00:00:00Z
  • Paul was an excellent host. My experience in Eleuthera was especially wonderful because he was extremely hospitable. His place is beautiful and he keeps it very clean. I cannot recommend his place enough.

    Giorgio2019-05-26T00:00:00Z
  • Paul and Cathy are super hosts. Great knowledge of the island, it’s people and car/plane arrangements etc.Unit is self contained, super clean,comfortable beds, and everything you need for cooking etc. Unit is well located for amenities and several of the better beaches. Tikki,(the dog) and Sushi,(the cat) are a hoot. Go, relax,enjoy- you won’t be disappointed. Highly recommend as a great place to stay and explore the island.

    Michael2019-05-13T00:00:00Z
  • This was my first air B&B experience, so I wasn’t sure what to expect. Paul and Kathy made this experience such a great and rememberable one. The place was extremely clean and comfortable, with pretty much everything we needed. Their hospitality was beyond exceptional; not only did they welcome my partner and I, they welcome my family that came to spend an evening with us. When visiting the island again, they will definitely be our first choice!

    Paulshenae2019-04-22T00:00:00Z
  • Paul and Kathy are amazing hosts! The place is very clean and well stocked, the beds are amazingly comfortable. The neighborhood is quiet, safe and beautiful. The grounds of the house are well cared for and expansive. Paul and Kathy know the island extremely well and guided us to great places to snorkel, fish and spearfish that would be hard to find without the local knowledge. We were eating fresh fish, crab and lobster that we caught almost every night. The local people are fun to meet and visit with and they all like Paul and Kathy. They are well respected on the island. This place is an absolute gem so relaxing, we are looking forward to returning.

    Emily2019-02-24T00:00:00Z
  • This is a good value. The beds are comfortable and you have a huge screened in porch to yourself. It's very convenient to town and some of the most deserted beaches on the island. The hosts have been there for a long time, so they know "everything," and they are very nice people with cute pets.

    Sarah2018-04-19T00:00:00Z
  • Very cosy room with all we needed and very friendly hosts in a beautiful house. We will come back if we go to Eluethera again, that's for sure!

    Ocean Front Home , only steps to the Carribean, home has dock, great private beach, home has large deck, 3 Bedrooms, 2 baths, outside shower and patio with hammock and kayaks included. Large family room and kitchen, washer and dryer, air-conditioned, Internet, private phone line, two tv's with DVD players, online TV. Good parking. Only 2 miles to the settlement of Tarpum Bay. Eleuthera is known for it's friendly people and is very safe. Restaurants and stores nearby. Free Shuttle service.
  • We have listened to friends’ stories of Eleuthera for years and decided to celebrate our 25th anniversary there with our children and introduce them to snorkeling. We picked Ray’s beach-front home for its proximity to simple snorkeling and it was just the right place to get our kids started. Being on the west side of the island means calm waters. Also, the dock is great for getting into gear and the outdoor shower is very handy. Ray’s handy man, John, is a pleasure to visit with and he stopped by to check if all was well. Drifts of dainty seashells line the beach. Little fish here and there make snorkeling a floating adventure. Facing the water, snorkel to the right when the tide is in. Walk the beach at night or early morning to see small (2’+) sharks swim past. The house is laid out for easy living. The kids and I whipped up a fine breakfast for Father’s Day in the kitchen, everyone played games at the table and ate on the deck. I echo another review: shut bedroom doors and keep the cool air in the living room during hotter days. Then open the doors in the evening and blow the cool air into the bedrooms with the abundant fans. Thanks for letting us use the kayaks, Ray. They were an added treat!

    Jay2019-06-17T00:00:00Z
  • The house is a few steps from the sea front. As it's the Caribbean side, it's lovely and calm. Great for exploring rock pools, shell collecting or wading out at waist height. The house is set back from the road, meaning it's nice and secluded and you feel like you are really are in paradise on your own. The house has everything you'd need, including a kitchen with everything required to cook up some lovely meals. Located 5 minutes north of Tarpum Bay shops, but it's ideally situated to really explore the southern or northern parts of Eleuthera. Lastly, the sunsets are amazing, enjoyed them each evening while enjoying a drink laying in the hammock. Thanks again Ray and Michael.

    Graham2019-04-24T00:00:00Z
  • The house is spacious and inviting. It is located very close to Tarpum Bay for any needed supplies. The kitchen was a great convenience for our family, we were able to cook each night. We enjoyed evenings outdoors in the swings and hammock. As a whole the house met all of our expectations. Thank you Ray!

    Yancey2019-01-25T00:00:00Z
  • Fantastic open beach house with gorgeous ocean view. Literally 50 steps to the water. To get there, its about 15-20 mins drive from Rock Sound airport. Pay attention to Rays instructions on how to get there. We got there at night in the dark and I forgot the paper that I wrote the directions on. Its an easy drive, but houses aren’t numbered. The house is a little hard to see from the road. Keep eagle eyes for the white gate posts and the house name sign. He will tell you other house names to look out for as landmarks. Pay attention to that! House is a nice beach bungalow with three bedrooms. One is on the other side of the house with its own bathroom with huge shower for two! This bedroom also has its own door to the deck that overlooks the Caribbean. Other two bedrooms were cute - one has a really pretty old painted brass bed. and had a bathroom between them. Kitchen had just about everything you need including a bunch of spices, sunscreen, coffee filters, and dish soap. Also there are some board games which we loved having. Decent selection of cooking and dining utensils. Not fancy, but all perfectly usable. TV worked and has a Roku (no cable but you can get stuff through Roku and set up your own netflix account. Just remember to take your account down before you leave.) This isn’t a fancy villa, its a great wooden beach house in a remote part of the Bahamas so don’t expect luxury furniture and perfect finishes. That being said we were extremely comfortable, everything worked (dishwasher, microwave, coffee pot, laundry, stove, etc). There is an excellent air conditioner in center of home and fans in bedrooms. Just leave doors open to cool em down more. Outside under the house (which is on stilts) has a gas grill, a hammock, clothes lines, and there are floaties and snorkel gear in a locked room under the house. Be sure to ask Ray to give you info about how to get in there. The beach is great. Narrow, amazing teeny tiny shells, and some limestone and baby reef that small fish inhabit. Its not all soft sandy bottom (which is why there are little fish there!) so bring water shoes. Great for beginner snorkelers. Bring your fishing rod! Caught a nice mutton snapper in minutes. Bring bug spray and use it!!!! The no see ums are vicious to ankles and legs. But if you spray you will be fine. Terrific outdoor shower for post beach fun. Loved our nights up on the deck sipping wine and talking about the day. Tarpum Bay is a tiny cute settlement. Great conch salad at the little bar across from the seawall in town. Definitely must rent a car on Eleuthera! Go North and find The Deck. Its a funky surprise on the Atlantic side. Overall, we had a wonderful stay. Ray and his house team are amazing and super friendly and we loved the house and property. We would go back in a heartbeat! Just book it now. Don’t wait any longer.

  • To begin with, Ray was just a pleasure to work with. Responded to emails timely as well as text messages. Checked in on us and sent his local help to check in on us several times during our stay. I was nervous because there isn't much information about the island, touristy spots, restaurants, or car rental locations online as this is more of a "local" island and not a busy resort island. Ray answered every question and helped connect me with all the right people, all before booking our trip. We wanted to get away from the hustle and bustle of daily life and simply relax on the beach, fish, dive, eat good, and RELAX! Rays place exceeded all those wants! Clean and centrally located (fly into rock sound airport its way closer than governours harbor) for 7 days we were in the peace and quiet beachfront paradise we longed for. Our goals for the trip, other than RELAX, was to dive, Spearfish, and hunt for the super spooky bonefish! Right out the back door was tons of diving spots and a variety of fish that kept us eating like kings and queens all week. If its in lobster season, go out 100 yards and feast! Facing the water, fantastic spearfishing 250 yards on the right off the rocks. Grouper was fantastic. Permit caught on fly rods! All kinds of snapper everywhere!! Bonefish are around, but no way Im giving up my spots on that ;O) . If you get a chance while in Tarpum Bay by the docks, go meet Chris at the tropical conch stand! He was so much fun and loved teaching us how to clean the conch (locals will tell you that there are none nearby....not true) and how to make the salad! You could spend days at the house and never need to see anything else, but if you do adventure out or want a very nice meal, head to governours harbor and go see Melissa at the French Leave Resort. Resturant is open to the public and is AMAZING, she's as sweet as a peach, and plan to dive right out front! It's stunning and with the rock overhang, you can see a ton of fish, sharks, turtles, and friendly barracuda. Gregory town was cool, the glass bridge is stunning, but the cliffs were by far our favorite! All in all I was beyond pleased! The only other advice I have is.... Bring bug spray for sunsets...those noseeums are for real! If you rent a car, ensure a representative is there to do turn in check, before you walk away from it. They don't have insurance like we do...just use caution so you don't get stuck handing over cash hours after you drop it off. HIGHLY recommend Rays place....would give it 10 stars if I could! PS....there was no one around us for miles and miles!!! Locals were super friendly and as far as we could tell, its super safe!!!!

    The property is centrally located for exploring our best beaches here in the South. Half Sound, Quarter Sound, Winding Bay and Tarpum Bay Beaches are a short drive away.
  • Everyone listen up! This place is awesome. I’ve spent 3 years spending time in Rock Sound and the surrounding areas and this is by FAR the best play I’ve stayed. So so clean and well maintained. Karen made sure everything was perfect. Her communication was great. I booked the room and that same day she messaged me with local tips and asked if I needed help with anything prior to my stay. The group I was with booked the entire cottage. It’s perfect for a group of 8 if you decide to book them all. I’ve already booked my next stay. Trust me... this is THE PLACE TO BE.

  • Karen's place is only 7-8 minutes from the airport. The apartments are spotless and every amenity is catered for. There is no pool but the beaches are only minutes away. Easily one of the best AirBNBs we have stayed at.

  • Karen's place was amazing and she was extremely hospitable. Very kindly she gave me great suggestions for fun things to do on the island. She could not have been a better hostess. If you visit this part of the island, I strongly urge you to consider staying at Karen's place.

  • Three and half weeks traveling all over the Caribbean and stayed at nine different places While searching for property. Hands down, the BEST place I stayed and that includes comparing it to a one night stay in a sweet downtown Miami luxury hi-rise. Cannot speak more highly of Karen and her little oasis. Frankly, I wasn’t sure what to expect before I got there knowing that it was a “private room and bathroom” in a shared two bedroom cottage. I had total privacy and also enjoyed the common area inside and amazing outside deck and grounds. She’s completely renovated this cottage and she’s got taste and style like no other in the tropics. Truly unbelievable place in the middle of South Eleuthera. From the check in, to the room, to the amenities, to the personnel touch and effort to make you feel as comfortable as possible... everything was made simple. Again, I can’t speak more highly of Karen and this place. With out a doubt, I’ll be back and will bring someone special so that I can share this jewel on the face of The Bahamas.

  • I visited for a week of DIY bonefishing. The property is just north of Rock Sound Airport which gave me quicker access to fishing the south end of the island than the glut of properties (and fishermen) the north end offers. I spent a week in a single unit. It had a small fridge and microwave. -Sufficient for my needs. Tap water is good for drinking (R/O). Shower is hot and good pressure. They're in the process of building a property kitchen. The property is totally renovated (like NEW) and beautiful. I'm told I was their second guest in that room. Looking at other options in this price range, all I saw was very worn-out, dreary looking accommodations. This place is clean and bright. Great to come back to after a long day of fishing, snorkeling, etc. The shared deck overlooks manicured white sand grounds with a nursery of tropical plants. It is a great spot to relax, hear birds, and have a beverage. I think they have 4 rooms total of various sizes. Hosts are really nice and accommodating. Karen even got my fishing license for me ahead of time. That saved me a day! They were a wealth of information on local restaurants, grocers, things to do, etc. I can't thank them enough. A car is a must. Get a high clearance vehicle to go to lighthouse point before it gets altered.

  • Karen was a wonderful host. She takes care of us more than we are expecting and help us a lot. We are very thankful. We enjoyed the time and the location a lot, it is a quiet and comfortable place to stay. We are proud to stay at this lovely place as the first guest and can definitely recommend! We wish Karen all the best and a successful time!
