A Dream Becomes A Reality!!

Once you leave the hustle and bustle of Nassau and take the short flight to Governour's Harbour......Peace awaits. As soon as you take the left into the driveway, you realize you made the right choice. Lizards await you as you make your way up the steps. Then it hits you, this house is PERFECT. From the layout to the decor. I was traveling with my wife, my 5 yr. old son, 2 yr. old daughter, sister in law, and both my parents, and we still had plenty of space to roam. But by far the best room in the house is the huge screened in porch. By day, a wonderful place to eat, read, or swing. By night, it became the center for many battles of Apples to Apples! The sound of the ocean and the wonderful breeze add a majical backdrop. The kitchen, laundry room and towel closet are all very well equipped. As was the dvd library, books, games, puzzles, snorkel gear..ect....Sallie and Mike have really thought of everything to make a family feel right at home the second they step through the door. I haven't even mentioned the best part yet, the beach. perfect for kids and still fun for adults. With an everpresent daily wind, we encountered perfect waves. Not too rough, yet keeps you entertained! My son LOVED the waves. During our nearly two week stay, we encountered a total of three people on the beach. The owner of the house next door, Da Villa, was one of them, and he is a wonderful guy. Other than that, we had the whole entire beach to ourselves all day, and for us...that was perfect!! We went on many little "adventures"....finding beaches, shelling, and just plain exploring. Yet everyday, we came back to the house always saying.."this is the best beach on the island". All the "towns" in eleuthera are quite charming, with grocery stores, shops and good restaraunts. Going out can get very pricey quickly,(especaily with 7 people) so If you don't mind cooking I suggest going to the north eleuthera "Shopping Center". It has everything you need at a reasonable price, no 11$ gallon of milk, like we got at the local stores. If you are looking for a good shelling spot, the spot Sallie suggest in her wonderful "guest guide" was the best spot!!, thanks Sallie, for the tip. Soooo. in conclusion, if you are looking to get away from it all and still have a great time, stop looking, this is the spot...and we will be back next year!! Zach, Linda, Xander, Cordelia Tufts.

Owner's Response: Thanks, Zach. I am so pleased that you had a great time and loved the house!
