Our stay at Cay House was fabulous! It was among the three best vacations that we've ever had and a lot of the credit goes to Cay House. We absolutely loved this property and can't wait to go back. Allow me highlight reasons why this property is the perfect choice for anyone looking for a relaxing and luxurious vacation in Eleuthera -
1) We enjoy staying in higher-end luxury accommodations and the pictures really do NOT do this place justice. The house is beautiful but yet still laid back. Perfectly suited for the relaxing environment that is Eleuthera. It's very well laid out and has everything you'll need (fully loaded kitchen, loads & loads of towels and even 15-20 bottles of sun screen) for a great vacation. Only things you'll want to remember - bring your own bath soap and washing detergent (for the washer/dryer).
2) There is no way to describe how amazing this location is. You step off your porch and you're on a very secluded beach in seconds. This is how celebs must vacation. Gaulding Cay is a wonderful beach where we saw 5 other people during our entire 10 days there. We normally had the beach all to ourselves and it was fantastic. Also, this location makes day trips to Harbour Island or Spanish Wells very easy, and there are plenty of grocery options (including the best one on the island) and restaurants nearby (you MUST go to The Front Porch).
3) Caribbean side was better for us. This home is on the Caribbean side and that was a big plus. We have two small children (ages 4 & 6) and our beach was perfect for them. At low tide, the water is so shallow that even the 4 y.o. could walk to the little island which is 250 yards from the house. And the water was perfectly calm (no waves is helpful for the kids) and absolutely gin clear. So awesome that the kids started calling the beach "our swimming pool".
4) Great snorkeling! Wow! Some really fantastic marine life right offshore from our beach, especially at the far end of the little island. We saw parrot fish, crayfish, groupers, loads of small colorful fish and even a stingray. But the absolute highlight was drinking coffee one morning and noticing three dark objects jetting across the water on our beach. After quickly jumping in with snorkel gear and swimming out about 75 yards, we found ourselves in the company of three incredible (and very large) eagle rays as they were foraging for their morning meal. Unforgettable.
Anyhow, hopefully that helps. Great house. Great island. Loved IT!
