Honeymoon/B-Day Vacation

  • 5 of 5

This was the best most relaxing vacation we have ever had. No children just the 2 of us and the beach in our back yard. Can't say enough about this place in paradise but you have to go and look for yourself. We aren't ones to travel but it was worth getting on a plane (that were not nuts about) and staying a week. We found beaches that are breathtaking and the pictures don't give it justice. It is remarkable in the evening (sunset)and when you get up in the morning with the doors wide open at 6am and you don't even get a chill at all in March tells you something when you come from 15 degree weather. Having to go home to that is a depressing thought. One experience we had was looking for the tip of the island where the cruise ships come in and dock. We never did find it but we found a beach in who knows where. I was looking for the wild boars to come out of the weeds thats how it looked to me and we just laughed at each other. (of course they don't have any there) There is no way to get lost its only 1 1/2 miles wide at the largest point. Another place was the glass bridge where you can see both waters on each side. One side was as calm and smooth as glass while the other was so windy and choppy when you took a picture it was so neat. Just being able to go back and make your own meals there was nice too because we aren't ones to eat out alot. We took all of our meat frozen on the plane, coffee, crackers and snacks that we enjoy because you know what you like and things are more expensive there. We finally found a beach called Twin Beach and we would have been there everyday if we'd found it sooner. Snorkling we never tried till we went there and it is like a whole different world. Beautiful can't really put it into words. Never saw a person on the beach while we were there. We had a fishing pole and finally caught something after 3 days. We watched kids one day with no pole just line pulling them in left and right.. We were deffinetly doing something wrong. (using a pole) Can't say enough about this place but would love to go back someday and spend another week or 2. It's on the come back list.

A week to remember!

  • 5 of 5

Four friends and myself decided we wanted a week getaway in warm weather. After hearing wonderful things about Eleuthera Island from another friend who has been going there for 3 years, we decided to give it a try. Oceansong was the perfect getaway for us. Peaceful, beautiful, comfortable. We met wonderful people, had great food and drink. We made food for breakfast, had bigger lunch or dinner, groceries are expensive but remember everything comes by boat. Lived in bathing suits, not one bad day of weather. The local people on the island are friendly and pleasant, and helpful. Can't say enough about the whole experience. Beautiful clean beaches, calm water, so different than any other beach I've been on. Home owners are very helpful in trip planning.

Great location & beautiful view!

  • 5 of 5

Oceansong is located right on the Caribbean side of the island. The beach by the house is rocky, but great for snorkeling and kayaking. We enjoyed the beautiful view of the ocean from the 4 sets of sliding glass doors on the upper level, and falling asleep to the sound of the waves was lovely! There are several beautiful sandy beaches nearby, including Rainbow Bay, which is just a few minutes away. There are a few other houses nearby, but Oceansong felt fairly private and we were never disturbed. In general, Eleuthera is a great place to go if you'd like a gorgeous beach all to yourself.

We came in early June and found that the ceiling fans and breeze were usually enough to keep the temperature inside quite pleasant. We did use the AC once on an especially humid day.

We appreciated the central location of this house. Day trips to either tip of the island were easy to manage and well worth the drive. Some of the beach access roads can be pretty rough, so if you're going to do some exploring, rent a vehicle with high clearance.

The house was clean and well stocked with everything we needed. Every once in a while the water would come out of the tap rusty, so just pay attention when cooking. You can buy a large container of drinking water at the grocery stores for $5.

We had a beautiful and relaxing vacation here. After seeing much of the rest of the island, we were very happy that we chose to stay at Oceansong!

Eleuthera is breath taking

  • 4 of 5

We had this cottage for the first week of February. The weather was perfect. 10 minutes of rain on one day. The snorkeling in front of the cottage is outstanding. It's rocky but you can enter the water easily from the boat ramp. The cottage is a sturdy little cottage that accommodated all 6 of us comfortably. It's very clean, and easy to keep that way. All appliances are there, and working. There is a great beach just down the road. The island is friendly and has lots of things to do if you want to. Sightseeing, surfing, bone fishing, some shopping. Everyone in our group was completely smitten with our time on Eleuthera. We will definitly be back. A wonderful adventure. Oh yeah.. bring a telescope. The stars are fantastic.

Only down sides, beer is very expensive on the island. Food is also expensive if your looking for regular American fair. Bring coffee!! It's hard to find and not very good. Bring cash, most business's don't take credit cards, cash is king.
