Wow! What an amazing place!

  • 5 of 5
We had the privilege of staying at Laguna for two weeks. The views from almost every room in the house are breathtaking! The house is very nice and very well stocked. This was our third time to Eleuthera. With both of our other trips, there were quirky things about the houses where we stayed because it is a remote island. With Laguna, there were no sacrifices at all! Everything that one is accustomed to in the states, is there at the house. Maybe even better! The wifi worked great and helped keep my teenage kids happy. The air conditioning was fantastic. The master bath had a rain shower and now my husband wants one. He also wants Apple TV now because the house had it. :) There were beach towels and beach chairs that we used. The location on the island is very convenient because it was only about a 10 minute drive to Governor's Harbour, but you could also go south to Rock Sound or Lighthouse Beach. It was very close to Ten Bay beach, Double Bay Beach and Pau Pau Beach was even closer. My husband and I snorkeled right by the house and saw all sorts of fish, a HUGE snail and even a small octopus! So cool! I would definitely recommend to anyone to stay at Laguna. It is a great value and so far the only place that we have stayed that I would say we would definitely return and stay again. The owners, Kevin and his wife, were awesome to work with. It really felt like they were hosting us. Not that we were "renters". They felt very hospitable. I can't say enough good things about the house. Eleuthera is such an amazing place. Laguna made it all the more special. Can't wait to go back!

DREAM VACATION

  • 5 of 5
What a wonderful time we have had at Laguna in Eluethra, Bahamas. It starts with the jaw dropping view of this beautifully appointed and cared for home. Every convenience is provided. Top of the line in everything from the kitchen to the kayaks!

The people of Eluethra are one of a kind. They are so welcoming, warm and friendly. Ready to help with directions anytime!

The beaches and day trips we took always provided a great adventure. The owners have all the best places to check out waiting for you at the house. The snorkeling is simply amazing right outside the back of the house. My teen boys were constantly captivated!

We are looking forward to our return!

Absolutely Amazing !!!

  • 5 of 5
From the moment we arrived on the beautiful Island of Eleuthera we knew we had found the "Perfect Gem of the Bahamas" The quality of the house and property left nothing to be desired. From the huge wrap around deck overlooking the Caribbean to the gourmet kitchen. All furnishings and fixtures were higher end. The central location of the house made exploring Eleuthera very easy as it is a long island. The view is absolutely AMAZING from all areas of the house. The moment you enter the house your eyes are drawn to the beautiful blue Caribbean through the expansive patio doors. The air conditioning worked flawlessly and the house has its own back up generator in case of power failures which we experienced, but didn't, because of the smooth operation of the generator when it took over. There is cable tv and wifi available at Laguna which makes it nice to keep in touch with family. The beds were VERY comfortable which is desirable after long days of exploring and swimming. While sitting in the courtyard in front of the house, you may even get to see hummingbirds coming to the flowers as we did. It was very nice to BBQ on the deck while watching the beautiful sunset and there is nothing like sitting after dark, looking at the stars and listening to the waves lapping at the shore as you relax. You are only minutes away from the local grocery stores, the Island Farms and numerous beaches and restaurants. You will not find more friendlier people as which live on this island. There was never a time that we felt unsafe or unwelcomed while visiting here.
Right behind the house you can snorkel and swim, one morning a pod of 4 dolphins swam by about 100 yards from shore. Were we excited!! We found a dozen starfish within a 100 feet of each side of the property. Stingrays and numerous fish were seen while snorkeling right along the shore.
The owner and property manager were always readily available, accommodating and helpful with any inquiries we had.
We loved it so much we are planning to return to Laguna this summer to enjoy more of this beautiful Island and house.
This is the PERFECT place for people who like the quiet and getting away from the tourist rat race of resorts and such.

A gorgeous property on a jewel of an island

  • 5 of 5
I have now stayed on three of the Bahamas outer-island and without a doubt, Eleuthera is the crown jewel. The beaches were incredible, the people are friendly and there are endless fantastic restaurants but what really made the vacation great was Kevin's house. The house was even better than described (not to mention incredible air-conditioning / NBA package on cable) and felt brand new from the second we walked in. Kevin's house manager became a close friend and made us feel right at home. Kevin was an absolutely wonderful manager and we will 100% be going back to this property immediately. Heaven on Earth!

Relax, recharge and base your stay here!

  • 5 of 5
This was our first trip to Eleuthera and we are already planning our next and will again be staying at Laguna! From the moment we landed with transportation to the house, the trip was off to a great start. The home was welcoming and modern with all the creature comforts one could need. With the ocean truly in your back yard from nearly every point in the house (I showered and watched the sunset one evening!) this is a retreat. The bathrooms are spa-like. The kitchen/living room areas are comfortable, well-equipped gathering areas (we made cookie and watched our college sports team one evening!) There is wifi but we strongly suggest telling everyone you will be off the grid!
During the days we fished (my husband caught a grouper right off the shore behind Laguna!) and snorkeled off the back coral beach (bring along aqua socks as the coral is quite sharp.) We also took advantage of the vehicle and took several day trips to take in the authentic culture of the island. We went to the top of the island to Preacher’s Cave (the quaint directions and vague ‘signs’ leading you here make it a hidden gem and gave us a beach to ourselves – which is not an unusual thing in Eleuthera!) We also visited the Glass Window Bridge with the turbulent, deep blue Atlantic nearly (and sometime actually) crashing over to the calm, turquoise west side. As we were driving away we found yet another unmarked roadside attraction just yards south of the bridge – an active blowhole! There are huge random “blue holes” nestled in small villages along the island that house hundreds of fish and hold some amazing diving records. For our trip to Lighthouse Beach we packed sandwiches made from lobster we bought fresh out of the ocean by two guys coming in the day before. We dined out at several locations including The Back Porch (literally a couple’s back porch!) and had stone crabs that were to die for. Simply amazing. This island is quaint, awe-inspiring, well-paced and hospitable.
The central location of Laguna close to Governor’s Harbor allowed us to easily visit and explore all parts of the island and have a fantastic home base to relax and recharge at the end of the day. Our only regret is that we visited before the pool was finished (which was under construction during our visit.) However, we are already looking forward to watching one of the amazing Eleutheran sunsets with a Kalik in-hand from the pool on our next visit! Thanks for a wonderful vacation!
