It is a beautiful beach and a beautiful location But....Upon our initial arrival, the dryer was in the middle of the side door exit, it remained there until someone came to install it, leaving the access door to the fuse panel wide open and the cover to the panel, off, leaving the power to the house exposed to anyone. Our last Saturday there, I went to use the newly installed dryer and when I went to turn it on, it gave me a tremendous shock that knocked me down. It goes without saying, it did not turn on. The A/C went out again and again, so roughly out of the 10 days we spent there, 6 of them were spent with no A/C. The pathway to the beach was so full of prickers and overgrown branches that we had to clear them all by hand before we could walk to the beach. We went to Harbour Island for the day (6 days into our stay), and came back to a warm refrigerator, the freezer seemed ok but all the produce and meats we had purchased had to be thrown out. About 4 days into the trip, one of the sliders' glass abruptly shattered for no apparent reason, leaving us with an exposed opening we had to makeshift cover up. I could elaborate further on numerous items but the above were the main issues. In summary, our 21 day rental turned into a 10 day unbearable situation, we had 2 children with us and could not see our current condition improving in any way.. . When we started looking for places to stay we figured to pay more for the convenience of having a comfortable place. It turned out to be unbearable and it was evidently clear that no effort had been made prior to our arrival, to make sure everything was in good working order and, at the very least, the pathway to the beach cleared up for us.

This is a great spot, we enjoyed our stay here. The house itself is simple but clean and no issues - two bedrooms, a living room and kitchen. The highlight is the location - it is steps from a beautiful beach on a quiet bay. Great swimming spot, and for kayaking, snorkeling, etc. At high tide, you can kayak down the cut at the end of the beach through some mangrove channels into another bay - we saw turtles, beautiful fish, stingray, etc. And there is a reef area outside the bay that had great snorkeling, but wasn't too rough. Just keep to the right as you exit the bay and the reef comes in close to the beach. The location is fairly remote, about 15 minutes from Tarpum Bay, but it was a perfect spot for a quiet family vacation.

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.

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!

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.

Life happens after you retire. Since retiring, I've taught myself Spanish, ran a marathon with my daughter, gone on fishing expeditions all over Central and South America, and am hiking the Pacific Coast Trail in summer 2015. My family and I have been coming to Eleuthera since 1969. My children and grandchildren have grown up vacationing in this very special place.
