Matt and Tara were great & very helpful prior to booking & throughout the trip. I would definitely book w Eleuthera Vacation Rentals again.
The Yellow House is breathtaking! The pictures do not do it justice, Kathy and Bob did an amazing job with the home. Everyone in our group loved the house & wants to return. We were a group of 8, four couples. Kathy is just simply AMAZING, she is so warm, welcoming & accommodating, we cannot thank her enough. We stayed at the yellow house for one week.
Eleuthera is beautiful, non-touristic, very safe, the perfect vacation for a family or couples looking to relax. The natives are very nice & helpful. The food was great. We mostly cooked, groceries & gas are expensive but it was all worth it. We ate out at the Buccaneer, down the street from the house, it was delicious. While there you must buy local fish & lobster from the fishermen. Eat conch and grouper. Some of our group also ate at Tippys, it was delicious but a little pricey.
We visited many beaches, all beautiful and secluded, we always felt like the only ones on the island. French leave is a short distance from house, light pink sand & beautiful. Twin Cove is great for pictures, adventurous car ride to get there but worth the gorgeous views. CocoDiMama & Ten Bay Beaches are about 20 mins from the house on the Caribbean side, shallow, clear waters, serene, perfect for snorkeling. Both of these beaches had sandbars during low tide, just breath taking.
We took one day trip, saw preachers cave & the glass water bridge (worth the drive). Our goal was harbor island but we took a wrong turn & ended up in Spanish Wells. It worked out just fine, spanish wells island was beautiful & the prices were better than on the "mainland". We went to the sand bar and that was gorgeous. We rented golf carts to explore the little island, it was a lot of fun. We need to visit again (& stay at one of Kathy's properties) to go to harbor island since we did not get the chance to go. The fish fry is a lot of fun, good cheap food, good music, great drinks, & lots of locals to talk to.
We hired private chefs for the 30th bday, it was well worth the money, the food was amazing & the ladies were a lot of fun. We stayed at the pool 2 days, it made meals easy and relaxing. Tips: Rent a car, bring cash, & a lot of bug spray. Downsides: the no-see-ums and trip was too short.
Overall we loved the Yellow House and Highly recc it. Thanks Kathy and Matt you are the best!
