PERFECT

  • 5 of 5
We've been fortunate to travel to Eleuthera on several occasions, and have stayed at Castaway 4 times. We think it is a perfect spot. You can't do better. Our family considers this our second home. We have traveled to other islands in the Bahamas and keep coming back to Castaway. The only reason we haven't stayed there on every trip is because it was already booked by someone else.

We have 2 kids. We've stayed in the house with another family of 3 kids as well as with just our family. All great experiences. The back bunk room is big enough to sleep 4 kids comfortably and 6 kids comfortably if 2 of the kids are younger/smaller.

So many things what makes Castaway special and set it apart. Here are a few:
-Proximity to a great beach
-Site on a hill, giving it a great view and the breeze keeps bugs away (Yes, unfortunately just about everywhere on Eleuthera has no see ums and mosquitos)
-AC, enabling you to close up if there is no wind and stay away from bugs
-Incredibly big deck with outdoor shower. Great for lounging, reading, lunching, sorting shells, etc.
-Huge open kitchen, dining living room for evening entertainment
-Separate back room with 2nd TV where kids can convene
-Great location in central Eleuthera, close enough for easy access to Governor's Harbour, Ten Bay, Tarpum Bay and even Rock Sound is not too bad. Although, you don't really need to go anywhere.
-Kayaks are awesome

But most of all you will find the owner and caretaker incredibly accommodating. From the big things (like making sure there is always water... yes, this can be a problem at some houses) to the little things (ensuring the house always has laundry, shampoo, soap, and other necessities), all make for a great stay.
