Governor's Harbour Eleuthera

A Whel-Appointed Paradise!

  • 5 of 5
My wife and I chose to visit Eleuthera for our honeymoon and we couldn't have been more pleased by our experience. Our expectations were not only met, but exceeded at every turn! Dave and Michelle built a stunning home and you can feel the time and effort they put into making it feel like a second home for anyone who visits. The decor is beautiful and the attention to detail is unmatched in comparison to any vacation home I've visited.

We live in Florida so we are accustomed to beautiful beaches, but they're no comparison to Club Med Beach (a few steps outside the front door), Lighthouse Beach (one of our favorites) and so many more. A review would be incomplete without mentioning the locals on the island - they truly make Eleuthera special. Everyone was incredibly warm and welcoming.

We look forward to planning our return to Whel-Appointed - it's an experience worth repeating!

This our first trip to Eleuthera and our first time using HomeAway, previously we had only used Expedia and gone to resorts in Mexico, Florida and other Islands in the Bahamas…
We picked Whel-Appointed after communicating with Dave & Michele, they put our minds at ease and answered all our questions.

The house is simply amazing, they thought of every little detail to make your stay enjoyable and comfortable. The two level wrap around balconies are spacious with great views while relaxing or eating breakfast to the sun coming up or even just using the grill, and the Teak furniture placed around the balconies is very comfortable. The rooftop Balcony offers amazing views!

The Bedrooms are large and comfortable with 10ft ceilings made of beautiful Cyprus with plenty of storage for your clothes both closet and dresser but shorts and loose fitting shirts with flip flops is all you’ll need in Paradise… The Master bath has plenty of counter space for his and hers toiletries not to mention a large bathtub/shower combo. Glass sliders, going straight out to the balcony.

Very easy to use washer & dryer in an out of the way place but convenient.

Living quarters are on the second floor, which works out great! Again 10ft ceilings made of beautiful Cyprus, which gives the open concept second floor that, much more comfort. The kitchen is very spacious, glass electric cook top that we used for breakfast every day… coffee, juice, eggs, fruit, toast. Having the kitchen gives you huge dinning options. We cooked Stone Crab Claws a couple nights with local produce for a tropical feast! All the pots and pans, utensils, cutting boards and just utensils VERY good quality items for you to use throughout the kitchen. I speak so highly of the kitchen as I do all the cooking my wife the clean up (o;

We ate comfortable at the kitchen island except breakfast that was outside on the balcony for sunrise! The dinning room table is also good size and would come in handy during rain or larger groups overall plenty of seating for meals.

The living are has a comfortable couch, love seat & swivel/rocker/recliner, LARGE square coffee table, satellite TV DVD player with a selection of movies. They even have an ample supply of cards & board games. The second floor has a total of 4 glass sliders that when opened you can enjoy the sound of the surf and feel of the wonderful tropical breezes Eleuthera has to offer, enjoy them!!!

We used Dave’s recommendation

A beautiful home on a beautiful island

  • 5 of 5
A well maintained, clean and spacious home-away-from-home, was our impression of Whel-Apppointed. This house definitely had wow-factor, from the two identical bedrooms (great for two couples) to the large open-plan kitchen/diner/lounge. The balconies surrounding all four sides ensured cooling breezes, shade or sun at any time of day. 15 feet across the road is arguably the best beach of Eleuthera with perfect pink sand and miles of deserted panoramic vistas. Tippys restaurant, the Beach House tapas bar and Banks Road Deli are all walkable or 1-2 minutes in the car maximum. This was our fourth vacation to Eleuthera from our home in the UK - a long journey - but totally worth it to experience the laid back relaxation of one of the least developed Bahamian Out Islands. You don't go there for the bars or shops or the nightlife, you go for R&R and to experience natural beauty, and a lifestyle from a bygone era. To drive on a road with no traffic, to walk on a beach with no others and to get away from everything is what Eleuthera has to offer and Whel-Appointed is by far the best house we have ever rented to do just that. We shall return!

Beautiful Home Away From Home

  • 5 of 5
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.

The Perfect Holiday!

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!
