About Emmy And Robert Buckman

This is our personal vacation home. We update and improve every trip we make.

Emmy And Robert Buckman purchased this villa in 2007

Why Emmy And Robert Buckman chose Ten Bay Beach

It's perfect location. It is on a promontory=great breezes on our large deck, amazing sunsets and sun rises.floor to ceiling sliding glass doors make you feel like you are on a large yacht. this house is better than being on a boat. We use it ourselves as often as possible ie this home is nicely appointed

BEST BEACH IN ELEUTHERA ESPECIALLY FOR KIDS. You do not need a mask to see the fish.....

What makes this villa unique

The views, the privacy!!!! central ac, the vegetation, THE DOCK!!!!The extemely low tides and very wide beaches at low tide. Shade on the beach from the trees Breath taking views. Best location in Ten Bay.

Guestbook comments from the owner

Exceeded all my expectations. As nice as the pictures are on the Web, they still don't do justice to how beautiful the property and surrounding area is. The house is kept in impeccable condition and you can spend the a whole week without leaving the bay. Fishing, sun, snorkeling, amazing sunsets, nearby supplies . . . the place has it all! - Peter I., NYC USA



There are no words to describe how wonderful our stay was at Bahama Villa. A lot of tender loving care went into making this villa a most comfortable, inviting, and relaxing place to stay for any length of time! The house, the views, the patio, the deck, the sand bars, low tide, high tide, the snorkeling, the king bed, the privacy, etc. all added up to a great getaway! - Deborah Zuczek, PA USA

A perfect hideaway with a fantastic view!

  • 4 of 5
We are from Germany and stayed at Bahamavilla in august 2014 (2 adults + a 7-year-old girl). The house is very nice, the view is really fantastic! The Caribbean Sea beginns just right in front of the beautiful terrace, you are surrounded by palm trees and tropical plants. The nearby beach "Ten bay beach" also is great for swimming and shelling.

The house has a large open-air-terrace, 1 livingroom and 2 bedrooms. Furniture is o. k. and in good shape, the beds are great. Nothing is dirty or smells bad. The house is very clean. The kitchen furniture and the kitchen stuff are a little bit old and tacky but they work. The bathroom is o. k., washbasin + toilet are nearly new, the bathtub and the wall tiles are old, bathtub-faucet is rusty, but this is really no problem at all.

The telephone line was broken during our complete stay, so we had no internet and always had to go to a public internet facility at Governor's Harbour which is 10 miles away.

Our resumé: if you are coming from Florida or the East Coast of the U. S., Bahamavilla is perfect. You have a real "Robinson-feeling" (even without internet ...), Eleuthera is a nice destination.

But coming the long way from Europe (as we were), paying US 1.700 per person for the 10-hours-flight, you better go to Floridas West Coast, the Maldives or a 4/5-star-resort in Asia where you have more comfort and cleanness of the island.

Eleuthera is a great place with wonderful beaches, the people are very friendly, we never felt insecure. Food shopping, dining, rental cars (these are often very old + rotten, but cost 70 dollar per day), gasoline and all other items are double the price than in the U. S.

We had very relaxing holidays on Eleuthera, if you want real recreation you will find it there. Don't forget to go to the "fish fry" at Governor's Harbour each friday evening.

Thanks to Emmy for always answering me so quickly, you have a wonderful house.

Fantastic Place!

  • 5 of 5
This was our fourth trip to Eleuthera and our first time at Bahama Villa.

Bahama Villa was one of the best homes that we have stayed at in the Caribbean. The villa was clean, well maintained and the water access was exceptional. The view of Ten Bay Beach is one of the best and the sunsets perfect! Even with a few rainy days due to the beginnings of Hurricane Arthur, the view and water did not disappoint.

Many nights we would enjoy the stars and the peace and quiet. However, the amenities provided just enough connection to the world, if you wanted it.

We’ve traveled to many of the islands in the Caribbean and Eleuthera is one of our favorites, and Bahama Villa will become our first choice when we return again.

Thank you Emmy and Robert!

This was our first trip to Eleuthera and we're so glad we choose Bahama Villa, we stayed for a week. It was me, my wife and 2 year old son. The villa is approximately 20-30 minutes south of Governor's Harbor Airport. We rented a car from Arthur Nixon, suggested by the owners, and he met us at the airport. The only gripe we had about the rental car was that the car had less than a quarter tank of gas in it. We got a little worried about running out of gas but we found a station on the way to the villa.

As soon as we opened up the front door we knew we were going to love the place. Two of the walls are floor to ceiling glass doors so you are presented with the amazingly blue waters of Ten Bay. The kitchen was well stocked and we cooked lunch and dinner frequently. Furniture was comfortable and there was a DVD player along with satellite TV. The bed was comfortable and had no problems sleeping. Our son stayed in the second bedroom in a pack and play that we brought with us. I also took advantage of the kayaks provided by the owner and explored Ten Bay. The deck was AMAZING! You are perched right over Ten Bay and can watch fish and sting rays swim by. The walk to the beach from the house is less than 2 minutes or you can wade in the water to the beach. I snorkeled a few times in Ten Bay. Not a lot of fish but saw some pretty big sting rays.

If you're considering going to Eleuthera I would highly suggest Bahama Villa. The owners were very responsive and helpful. Arthur was a great help too.

Paradise!!!

My husband and I love islands and have traveled to many for over thirty years and I have to say that Bahama Villa is our favorite spot to date. We were there for two weeks over Thanksgiving and the roof damaged from Hurricane Sandy (see prior review) had been replaced. The house clean, light and airy with a "tree house" feel overlooking the beautiful clear water. Even though it's in Ten Bay Beach (one of the top beaches in the Bahamas) at Bahama Villa you're tucked away in privacy. Swimming right from the dock is idyllic, the kayaks are fun as is the fishing. Reading on the porch is perfect and at night we enjoyed some of the dvd movies. We cooked grouper and lobster on the grill that we were able to buy on most weekdays from fishermen at either Gov. Harbor or Tarpum Bay. Eleuthera has many beaches (over 50) to explore for walks and swimming. The local people are warm and friendly. The owner Emily was very helpful and Arthur met us at the airport in Gov. Harbor with our rental car. If you're looking for a laid back, relaxing and wonderful spot, this is it.

The word 'Eleuthera' is the Greek word for 'freedom.' The island is long and narrow island (100 miles long, 2 miles wide) and sandwiched between the deep Atlantic to the east, and the calm shallow Caribbean to the west. There are plenty of beaches where you can walk for miles and not see a soul; hidden coves, and small island settlements with friendly people. Local hitch hikers are plentiful, and provide a bountiful supply of good information on island lore, activities and interesting sites. The population of Eleuthera is about 11,000, very friendly, most of whom are engaged in fishing, farming,and the tourist industry.

Bahama Villa, a secluded beach house located at Ten Bay, is the nicest little romantic getaway on the island. The Villa is located just a few miles south of Governors Harbour, where you will find a few shops, a bakery, a bank and several restaurants.

WEATHER on Eleuthera is tropical, meaning mostly sunny and hot during the day with occasional thunderstorms.

Other Activities: Snorkeling, historic sites, boating, beach-combing,bone fishing,fishing

Local house manager available on call. Central air conditioning has been updated in 2005. The weather in Eleuthera is almost always warm, and rarely goes below 65 F (20 C). Most guests report not needing it much, however, except on the very hottest days. With all the fresh breezes wafting in from the bay and circulated by the ceiling fans, you may want to just enjoy living a-la-Casablanca.
