Room: The unit looked just like the pictures. The furniture is still in good shape, and for the most part everything looked brand new. The view from the rear deck is to the west, over the trees and toward the water. With the curtains open you can see this view from the living room and kitchen. From the front bedroom, you have a pleasant view toward the property grounds. The mobile hotspot for wireless worked well, but was limited if you're planning on streaming or other heavy usage. Satellite TV (PR DirecTV feed) had more movies than I would have anticipated for standard programming.
Property: The grounds were well maintained, most mornings staff was on site doing landscaping work. The pool was clean, but I prefer the warmth of the ocean water. The path to the beach on the golf cart is a fun ride. The beach itself is isn't far from the well-known surfing locations, so during out stay the waves were too rough to swim, but would have been great for water sports. On a calm day there should be good snorkeling at a shipwreck not far from the beach.
Location: There's a lot of activity 20 mins north or south of Buttonwood. This gives you a lot of options when planning out a day, since anything between Gregory Town and Governor's Harbor is easily reached. The convenience store about a mile north of the property stays open late on Sunday unlike most. There is also a gas and service station just inside town. My preference has typically been to stay in Governor's Harbour, but Buttonwoods spot just outside of James Cistern was very convenient and worked extremely well for us.
Buttonwood is in-between a hotel and detached rental home. The unit is spacious and has the amenities of a home, but has the larger staff of a hotel that's readily available to assist when needed, and perhaps the comfort of not being alone in the middle of nowhere. The upstairs unit would offer a bit more privacy and move closer towards the detached home feeling. You could nitpick some details if you wanted, but this is Eleuthera, and that is true for the whole island. Overall, Buttonwood is a rental that's good at what it tries to be.
