Having renting many vacation homes, I can say this was one of the best. The house is very well-built and maintained. Lovely, comfortable furnishings. Kitchen is well-stocked and the house comes with lots of extras (kayaks, snorkeling equipment, beach chairs) that made exploring the island easy and enjoyable.

Eleuthera IS an island paradise! Not touristy and very quiet. 5 beaches in 5 days & most completely deserted but for us. You'd think our very social teen-aged daughters (15 & 17) would be bored, but they loved the solitude which gave them a welcome break from their very busy schedules.

Would love to go back & bring the extended family.

Owner's Response: Thanks so much, Ana. We were very concerned that your time on Eleuthera was a pleasure after your flight cancellation in Nassau the first day. We are delighted when the kids in the family enjoy the house and island, as it makes life much easier for you! We hope you all will will return soon!

Thanks,

Don

This is a review that is long overdue! In May of 2012, my 23 year old daughter and I spent a week at Savannah Sunset. From the minute we went through through the front door, our sense of perfection was forever altered. Nothing can compare the the excellence of comfort and tasteful decor that is exhibited in this beautiful home. Everything we could possibly have needed was at our fingertips. As a matter of fact, there was so much offered that we have needed to be there for a month to have utilized everything! And thats just inside! Outside there is an amazing deck to lounge on next to the small private beach...perfect for yoga and meditation. The view form the house is breathtaking....................all that clear blue water glistening in the sunshine. Truly this is paradise. Many thanks to a lovely couple for allowing so many people to experience the tranquility and beauty of your Eluthera home. I could go on and on about the powder white beaches we explored, the cracked chicken we ate from the food van in Governers Harbor, the conch we bought from the local fisherman (which we brought home and cooked to perfection!), the shells we collected near the warm tropical clear waters,and all the lovely locals we met as we traveled from the northern most part of the island to the southern tip. A fantastic cultural experience!

The PERFECT spot for our Family Vacation!

Prior to arriving at Savannah Sunset, we couldn't wait for a fun family week filled with such difficult daily decisions as; Which pink sand beach should we bask on? Surfing or cliff jumping? Atlantic side or Caribbean side? Lounge on the gazebo cover deck, overlooking the Savannah Sound, or the screened bug free porch, over looking the Savannah Sound? Glass bottom kayaks or snorkels? Family game night or live music in town? Don and Trish's gorgeous home and the island of Eleeuthera DID NOT DISAPPOINT...our days were indeed filled with all of those difficult decisions... ; )

Our favorite parts of this trip: getting there, the AMAZING house, family game nights, dinners at home, the BEACHES!, swimming with dolphins in the wild , snorkeling, cliff jumping, the stray dogs, frisbee, wave surfing, sand-dollars hunting, reading tons, and all the many many shared laughs! We could not have asked for a better home/location for our family vacation.

Don and Trish's extreme attention to detail left us wanting for nothing. The house with chock-a-block full of every amenity we could possible have needed, and then some. The beds were beyond comfortable, the house was spotless, and the kitchen fully equipped. Their property manager, Peter, was extremely courteous and very helpful when it came to giving us the inside scoop on where to go and what to see during our stay.

STOP LOOKING and contact Don and Trish today! You will be so happy you did!

The amazing personalized service started even before our arrival, when owner Don helped me find affordable airfares to accommodate our family's vacation plan. The impeccable personalized service continued from the moment we were greeted at the airport by caretaker Peter; he drove us to Savannah Sunset where Virginia was setting out a delectable Bahamian dinner (arranged by Don) on our screened- in porch that overlooked turquoise water framed by a pink sunset sky. Our travel fatigue vanished as we ate dinner by candlelight, serenaded by quiet jazz emanating from the perfect sound system. I sincerely hope this was a preview of heaven.

Every day and evening of our week on Eleuthera was made even more enjoyable by the amenities of this meticulously decorated waterfront home on the calm Caribbean cove in Savannah Sound. As you look out from this magnificent property you can only see one other home across the bay (we have stayed there, too) and you immediately sense the calm peacefulness of private island living. When I close my eyes and think of my fantasy Caribbean home, THIS IS IT! From color choices to the one-of-a kind furnishings to the gourmet, fully stocked kitchen and the sliding glass wall that opens the living-dining area to the spacious screened in porch, every item has been thoughtfully selected and provided to make your stay comfortable. Peter and Virginia are frequently in contact to see to your every need; on most occasions they anticipated my needs before I even realized I had any.

The deck and waterfront lounging area is expansive, with high quality chairs and lounges, a clean sandy beach area for the kids complete with toys and water sport activity. We took the kayaks out every day (it's great fun to paddle out to Levi Island) and snorkeled throughout the cove. Beautiful Ten Bay beach (shallow and calm for children) is right down the street. If you prefer the waves on the Atlantic side of the island, the old Club Med Beach near Governor's Harbour is our favorite close beach. If you are new to the island, try as many of the beaches as you can - they each bring something unique, and many times you will be the only family on the beach.

Whether this is your first trip to Eleuthera or your 21st, you will not find a more perfect property or more accommodating landlords and hosts than you will at Savannah Sunset - we hope to return again next year to soak in the ambiance of paradise - Don and Trish style.
Thanks, Chris & Kathy from CT

Gorgeous. Quiet. Perfect. FIVE STAR!

Before we even arrived to Savannah Sunset we were treated spectacular. We wanted a beach vacation that was different, one that offered pure beaches, non-commercial flare and excellent accommodations. Sometimes when you crave quiet & remote you can get rough facilities. Not so with this home!
Ss was ammmaazing. It's like an adult size dollhouse. The home is built so well, the woodwork, colors and accessories are excellent- so very homey, I felt like we were living in an issue of Pottery Barn magazine. There are kayaks, snorkel gear, beach chairs and our 13 year old loved and appreciated the boogie board. One of our favorite spots was the second floor screened in porch. We read, laughed, talked and enjoyed our time so much in that space. The kitchen is so well stocked. We have rented homes for vacations in the past and this kitchen was Number #1 best for appliances.
We were under 10 minutes from one of the best beaches we have ever experienced, Ten Bay. One day we were surrounded by so many alive sand dollars we had to be careful where we stepped!
Don & Trish really have created a home- not just a rental. We hope to return, this time with at least 2 more people! There were 4 of us- we think 2 more people would be lovely! Here are things I will know when I return:
*I will pack lighter- no need to dress up anywhere on Eleuthera.
*We will budget more for groceries. We only ate out 3 times (once from a "take away") & the kitchen is so nice I will buy more groceries for our stay next time. Plan on groceries being more expensive than the states because everything is imported. But what you spend on groceries you save on buying "touristy stuff."
*I will know there is a super amount of books & movies at SS, I read 3 of their books.
*I will be prepared for the "backroad terrain" getting to the house & beaches. Having the 4x4 was such a plus.
Really, I can't write enough positive about this home & our experience! It was perfect.
