Paradise Found!

  • 5 of 5
As we drove toward the lush greenery and flowering shrubs along the last sandy lane off the palm-bordered road, we felt as though we had discovered a hidden tropical paradise. And then we saw the amazing view from the veranda and the Tiki Liki. Aqua colored ocean waves crashed on the pink sandy beach. It couldn't get any better!

We were delighted to discover three excellent kayaks that took us on many adventures including escapades to the nearby island. There was great snorkel gear which we used in the water in front of the house, and at other reefs. How fun to find sand dollars and to see lovely fish and coral! Magic Sands is a delightful combination of private hidden paradise, and a headquarters for adventure. Thank you Hugh and Margaret! I believe you have thought of everything!

Sue, the helpful caretaker offered to buy a few groceries since we were arriving on Sunday after the stores were closed. She also told us a five gallon jug of water was provided as well as a cell phone for our use. We had good service for our Verizon phones, and were grateful for the WIFI which helped us keep in touch with the business at home. We brought a cooler of frozen meat with us, and purchased fresh vegetables, fruits, juice, jerk sauce and home made bread from Island Farms just up the road. The helpful gardener who came twice a week to keep the flowers and grounds looking lovely, cut down coconut for us. We enjoyed visiting James Cistern Wesleyan Methodist Church as well as gorgeous Light House Beach. Ocean Hole was also very intriguing.

The beds were very comfortable and the kitchen was well furnished. When the breezes were still at dusk and dawn, we learned to stay inside to avoid the noseeums.

How delightful to wake to the lovely views, and then to have the beach all to ourselves.

Our 8 days at Magic Sands were all we had hoped for and more. It was a peaceful retreat with gorgeous sunrises and views as well as the launching pad for many exciting explorations and adventures. Our vacation at Magic Sands was one of our favorite ever!

Our Magic Sands Vacation

  • 5 of 5
This was our first visit to Eleuthera, and we were not disappointed! The island, people, villa and even the weather were all accommodating and beautiful for our week in Eleuthera. Magic Sands is a treasure, with a touch of luxury that somehow manages after only a few hours to feel like home. Everything we needed was provided for us, from books and movies to kayaks and a crib. Kevin and Hope met us at the airport and even helped haul our luggage, which we could not fit into our rental. They were readily available all week, and when they stopped by on our departure day to see if we needed help getting to the airport, we hated to have to say goodby.
There are many concessions that are necessary whenever visiting a small island, but for the right kind of person the rewards are enormous. For example, there is limited groceries available at the stores, gas is $6.00 a gallon, no internet, beer is $42.50 a case, and the "magic" sand does not re-appear until sometime in the summer. But the benefits far outweigh these minor inconveniences. The restaurants are excellent, the beaches are unbelievable, peace and tranquility are abundant, Kalik is awesome, and a short paddle straight out from the Liki Tiki in one of the kayaks and you get to explore your very own deserted island. And the people are great. We waved at everybody, even when passing by in the opposite direction on Queen's Highway. There is no way we can overstate how important that is to us. Locals and tourists alike seemed to be always happy and treated us like old friends. And why shouldn't they be happy? They are in paradise!

Magical Magic Sand Villa

  • 5 of 5
We have been at the Magic Sand Villa 3 times and will be going there for the 4th time this Summer (2011). We love it so much that last time we stayed for 2 weeks!

We fell in love with the house because of the location (privacy) and the proximity of the beaches. The Liki Tikki (as Hugh affectionately calls it) is unbelievable. The views are breath taking from every angle.

Overall...this house is emaculate. I haven't seen ANYTHING better!!!...Hugh & Margaret are awesome. Kevin & Hope add to it :-) and ofcourse Posey. Our daughter would not leave Posey alone and Posey loved it too.

We look forward to June!!! Magic Sand...Here we come...Hugh & Margaret we hope to see u there :-)

Magic

  • 5 of 5
Our family of five traveled to the Bahamas for the first time during Xmas holidays and we landed in Magic Sands. What a lucky find!!!! The perfect location with rarely a person on the beach, an amazing veranda on which we lived for one week, wonderful location to go either direction on the island, great bathrooms, beautiful linens, and so much more. I would recommend Magic Sands to anyone visiting Eleuthera!

A week at Magic Sand Villa

  • 5 of 5
We just got back from a week at Magic Sand Villa, and all I can say is that we had an amazing vacation. The house is beautiful, the location is unbelievable, and the overall experience was very very enjoyable. We met a lot nice people, including Kevin and Hope the property managers, they were very accommodating and friendly. For the first time in many vacations it was extremely difficult to pull ourselves away on that last day. The weather in Eleuthera was fabulous the whole week. When renting a house or hotel via the internet your never quite sure what the result will be, in all respects this experience has been fabulous. We spent some time driving around the island and happened upon some of the other rental property locations that we initially considered, and feel that we made the best choice in Magic Sand.
