Beautiful Home Away From Home

We just arrived back from a 10 day stay at Whel-Appointed, located on the lovely island of Eleuthera. This is our second trip to the island and this year, we decided we wanted to stay in a more central location so we chose Whel-Appointed. First of all, the location is FANTASTIC! The home is on Banks Road- you can walk to The Beach House and Tippy's, the Banks Road Deli and the town of Governor's Harbour are a 5 minute drive. However, the best part of the location is that it is across the street from Club Med beach. Now, when I say across the street, it is literally a 3 minute walk down a sandy path to the most gorgeous beach I have ever seen. The weather was perfect- warm and sunny each day except one and we spent the entire vacation swimming, reading and lounging on the sugary pink sand.

The home itself is outstanding. It is even more beautiful than the pictures ( if you can belive that!). When we checked in, it was spotless and we ran from room to room "oohing and ahhing" at how large and beautifully decorated it is. This is not a cottage- this is a HOME. Everything has been thought of from the linens, to the kitchen utensils to the flat screen TVs, to the the beach equipment. All you have to do is unpack and you are ready to go. The furniture is substantial and luxurious and we immediately made ourselves right at home.
Finally, As the other reviewers have noted, David and Michele are just wonderful to work with. Thye really care that you are happy and having a good time while in their home and it shows.
We loved this vacation rental so much that we have already rented for next year and hope to make this an annual visit.
Thank you David and Michell for sharing your lovely home with us.
Ann and Joel.
Owner's Response: Ann and Joel,

We really appreciate your feedback and just let us know if there is anything else we do to help ensure that you have another fantastic visit!

Take care,

David and Michele

We can't thank the owners, David & Michele, for sharing this wonderful home with us. We loved everything about the home inside and out. It is beautifully maintained, and the owners have thought of your every need. Given how much we have paid for accommodations in the Caribbean, this was a total bargain. We had such a hard time leaving! For more details including photos, read more about the home on my Caribbean travel blog, My Irie Time: Thanks so much!
Owner's Response: What an absolute pleasure it has been working with you; we just love your blog of your visit to Eleuthera and we are thankful that you took the time to highlight the Island for others. The photos are spectacular! We hope that you decide to return to Whel-Appointed and we are here to help you with that next vacation. Our Best, Michele and David

We had such a fabulous this staying at Whel-Appointed. The owners, David and Michele were gracious and easy to contact. The house was top notch. Clean, organized, and had everything we could think of. The island is a great place to go and just relax. The locals were very friendly, helpful, and courteous. The beach is everything you can ask for, clean, close by, and absolutely gorgeous. My wife and I cannot wait to go back. Thank you Michele, and David!

Ok, I will start with getting there, a nice man named Edger who came to pick us up in his car at the airport. He drove us around town to show us the town and what would go on for that week in Govenor's Harbour, and the places we could go to shop or hang out. Then he droped us off at the house. Beautiful home, very clean, everything was organized they had all the things needed for the beach. We spent alot of time at the beach and when we were hungry we walked the few steps back to the house, either to eat, or just because it was so close. We called the manager one time because we couldn't figure out how to get the TV or the DVD player back to the TV, he came right over, so don't be afaid to call.
And talk about the nicest people on Eleuthera, every where you went, lots of places to shop and a few places to eat.
And Yes, do try the conch salad, that is a must,
David and Michele have the nicest house in Eleuthera, and are the are the easiest to deal with, any questions were answered by E-mail the same day we asked them.We will definiately stay at Whel-Appointed again!!!

It's been about a month since our trip to Eleuthera and not a day goes by that we aren't talking about a memory from the trip. It was our second trip to the island. The first time we stayed in North Palmetto Point. Very nice, but we wanted to stay on a more swimmable beach. And French Leave Beach IS that beach. It is the most perfect beach on the island. Beautiful sand, water that's protected by the waves, easy to walk....just perfect. And you can walk north and make it to Causarina Bay and Twin Coves if you're really motivated. Cannot say enough good things about the beach and the location.

On to the house - hard to add anything that hasn't already been said. It is a newer, upscale home with great amenities. Bedrooms are on the first floor and the main living space is upstairs. Very modern appliances, comfortable furniture, satellite tv/wifi, and great outdoor spaces. We spent a lot of time on the balconies, including the 3rd floor widow's walk. Fantastic views of the water and sunsets. Don't let the fact that it's "across the road" from the beach put you off. It's at the most a one minute walk. And it's so close to Governor's Harbour - which is so convenient. And you can walk to the Beach House. We didn't dine out a lot - just because we wanted to enjoy the kitchen and dining areas of the home. And the home is reasonably priced, considering the quality of the home and the close proximity of French Leave and Governor's Harbour. And Dave was very responsive and available for questions via email before and during our stay.

(One of our meals out was at the Front Porch in Hatchet Bay. Yes, it's a bit of a drive from the house; but so worth the trip. We enjoyed lunch early in the week; and went back for dinner later in the week. A small, charming restaurant and they had fresh Stone Crab Claws while we were there. These claws we're as huge as my hand! Never seen the likes of them before, and reasonably price. Please check them out while on Eleuthera.)

So, to sum it up, we HIGHLY recommended Whel-Appointed on French Leave Beach for an awesome experience on Eleuthera!

Owner's Response: Hi Kimberly,

Thank you for taking the time to share your experiences on the Island and at Whel-Appointed. You totally hit on some of the high points of why we picked this location to build our home; steps from one of the best beaches, ability to relax outside on the balconies overlooking the ocean, central to many other parts of the Island. We are happy that you enjoyed your stay and we are here to assist you with any future plans!

Take care,

Michele and David
