We spent 2 weeks at Bella Luna and it was not long enough. Linda and Trevor are wonderful hosts and I wish we had gotten to spend more time with them as they have a wonderful history with the island. We frequently use VRBO to find accommodation and I must say this is the best equipped rental we have ever stayed in. The house is very well appointed and the attention to detail is obvious and appreciated. Some highlights we found on the island was Ida and Dave's restaurant in Palmetto point. The Friday night fish fry in town is not to be missed. Tippy's is great for a dining night out but is expensive but well worth it. The only challenge we found on a daily basis is finding fresh produce but that only adds to the adventure and we found a few local produce stands that were amazing. The locals are some of the friendliest people we have ever encountered. Overall the stay was great and Bella Luna the perfect place to stay. The beach and water access is wonderful and so very private. It is a great shallow area of the sea so perfect with children. Thanks again to Linda and Trevor for making our stay so relaxed and enjoyable.

Great house on a lovely island

  • 5 of 5

We had such a great time for our two weeks Thanksgiving trip with family. The house was great for kids, parents and grandmother - easy access to water and lovely sunsets. Linda and Trevor and the managment company were easy to work with and were very hospitable. Linda and Trevor, the owners, live next door and are very helpful but also respectful of visitors' privacy. It was a great location near everything in Governors Harbour and the bay is simply lovely from morning until the full moon at night. Just a great vacation. Thanks again to Linda and Trevor. We will be back very soon.

Absolutely Perfect Family Vacation!

  • 5 of 5

Bella Luna is such an amazing property! My husband and I brought our two boys (4 and 1 1/2) for 9 days and it was the best vacation to date. The house had everything we needed, was incredibly clean and comfortable. We would go out exploring in the morning and then spend every afternoon at the house. We really could have stayed at the house all day, every day. The bay is quiet, we only saw a few other people out on the water the entire time. We loved taking the kayaks out and exploring, swimming at the beach, checking out all the amazing sea creatures right at the shore (star fish, eagle ray, needle fish, conch, etc.). The house was perfectly located for us as it was easy to run to Governor's Harbour when we needed water or milk, plus it is really close to some other stunning beaches and delicious restaurants. Trevor and Linda are gracious and wonderful hosts and Juliana was so helpful in planning our trip. I highly, highly recommend this property when visiting Eleuthera. We can't wait to go back!

Beautiful beachfront property

  • 5 of 5

We were pleasantly surprised upon our arrival as the house proved to be above our expectations - which were pretty high according to the reviews we had read on it. It was recently renovated and is very nicely furnished and extra clean; it was perfect for a 10-day vacation for our family of two adults and three teenagers. The property's beach was a bit smaller than expected however and the owners explained that this was the result of Hurricane Sandy which eroded a portion of it.

The house is very conveniently located, being just a 3 minute drive to Governor's Harbor which is itself close to numerous beautiful, remote and deserted beaches. The whole Island is about a two-and-a-half hour drive so being in the middle of it meant that everything was within an hour's reach.

Linda and Trevor were very helpful in making recommendations and made sure that we had everything that we needed to make the most of our stay.

We highly recommend Bella Luna as well as Eleuthera and its beautiful, quiet beaches.

This was a whole new experience.

  • 5 of 5

We’ve done a fair amount of travel to the Caribbean; this was the first time at Eleuthera. It was just fabulous!

Bella Luna is designed for privacy with the master on one side of the common area and the other two bedrooms on the other side sharing a hall bath. Everything appears new or newer, super clean, well cared for and fully equipped. We were there in July so AC was important. This home has two central AC units that are independently set and work great (much better than window units). The gas grill was just outside the back door, beds are comfortable, rooms quiet; it is just a wonderful place that makes you feel comfortable from the moment you walk in.

The beach had big sturdy beach chairs (better than the picture) and there were usable beach chairs (to take on excursions), blow-up floats, kid’s beach toys, etc. that were in good shape. The care and attention Linda and Trevor give Bella Luna is obvious.

A couple additional random thoughts- the water pressure was great, although be conscious of shower time; inevitably there are power outages on the island, each room at Bella Luna has a battery lamp for emergency lighting. There were big fluffy shower towels and 10 beach towels. We used the washer/dryer; there was detergent. Basic spices were in the cabinet. The wireless internet was great and the coolers came in handy for our trips around the island.

My only pet peeve about the island- no one would rent scuba regulator and BCD! The boat dive trips will have them for your trip but no one will rent for the week to do beach dives; so, bring them. I believe the fine sand gets into the equipment and it doesn’t pay to rebuild a reg after every use/abuse.

Take Linda’s advice for your car rental. All car rentals are with individuals. Our first attempt was a junker and we traded up. Next, get an SUV if you are adventurous and want to explore. The road to Surfer’s Beach was intense and ONLY passable with ground clearance. Go to Harbor Island, rent a golf cart, and find your beach for the day. Lastly, everyone talks about buying fish at 3pm, I had better luck talking to the guys before they go out and you can actually put in an order. No kidding, ask for a Nassau Grouper, Red Snapper, or Spiny and they will go out and spear one for you.

Perfect place

  • 5 of 5

We had an amazing time on Eleuthera, not last because of this wonderful house that we stayed in. The owners are very friendly and will make sure everything is perfect. The house and also the surrounding is very new and clean. There were 4 beds (two king/queen beds and 2 smaller ones) in three different rooms. The kitchen has everything you need, there's a nice little table with chairs right on the beach (10 meters from the house away). The two kayaks that come with the house give you the opportunity to go to the close island, where there is amazing snorkling on the part further away. If you arrive with kids, there are also some games and sand toys. Gorvernours harbor, where you get everything you need, is just about 5 minutes by car away. So is the Governours Harbor airport. But you will never hear any airplanes. It is very quiet which we enjoyed most.

So if you are looking for a quiet, clean place in a wonderful area right on the beach, you found it. This just IS the perfect place.
