My boyfriend and I had been planning to visit the Bahamas for 2 years...specifically a location far from over-crowded tourist traps and resorts. Eleuthera is just the perfect island for that. The beaches are stunning and mostly empty. We enjoyed kayaking and snorkeling almost everyday, just minutes from the cottage. The local Bahamians are the friendliest, most helpful people you can meet. Everyone we spoke to were more than willing to help us in any way they could. The fresh seafood and produce are delicious, and our favorite meal was dinner at The Front Porch - Francis took great care of us! We visited Governor's Harbor Town for the Friday night Fish Fry, which was so fun; and we also took a drive and ferry ride to see the beautiful pink sands on Harbor Island.
Carlene and Dave's cottage is just beautiful, very comfortable, and well-stocked. I love to cook and had everything I needed, and then some. Carlene was extremely helpful in the weeks leading up to our trip. It is worthwhile to ask her as many questions as you can think of, and she will provide lots of detail to help eliminate any guesswork and make the most of your trip. Her nieghbor, Laura, was also extremely helpful. We rented a vehicle from her, and she was just across the road if we had any questions.
We loved everything about this trip!
I plan to visit Eleuthera again and stay in this wonderful cottage.
Thank you again, Carlene and Dave!
