I live in the Florida Keys and was born in raised in Key West. I have been building homes for over 30 years here. We purchased the house in 2004 I am very partial to Eleuthera because this is where my grandparents were born who were fishermen and farmers on the island. I love the water in the islands. You will love the islands when you get the sand in your shoes and the saltwater in your veins.

WONDERFUL ISLAND VACATION

  • 5 of 5
The descriptions, pictures and great reviews are true. This is a beautiful location, immaculately kept. If you are looking to be out of the way, in a private beach setting, with clear turquoise waters and fabulous sunsets, you have found the place. The owner, and James, the caretaker, are very considerate and helpful. All the people we encountered were friendly and welcoming. You can stay here, out of the way, or venture off to see other sights, as you choose. I hope to return, for a longer stay

GREAT 16 DAYS

  • 5 of 5
We stayed at the Hibicus house for 16 days & enjoyed every minute of it. The house was clean, had everything you needed to cook in, and the location was perfect. James the caretaker was as good as it can get.He brought us lobster,stone crab claws and fillets that were spectacular. It's our 4th time staying in the Current and this is the best rental we've had and we are planning on going back next years for 17 days. I would highly recommend this rental.

BEST VACATION EVER

  • 5 of 5
We had a memorable stay at Hibiscus House. Our first priority was a relaxed beach side vacation and this property completely met our expectations. The beach was usually deserted so we had it all to ourselves and provided good swimming every day. We did visit other beaches in the area during our stay, and while they were all lovely, not all were sheltered from large waves. The house is comfortable with large bedrooms and a very well equipped kitchen. Wi-fi and cable TV were appreciated by our two teenagers. The house is terraced on three sides so we were always able to find sun or shade as desired.
Jack, the owner, provided a high degree of care and attention to our stay and we felt more like guests than renters. James, the caretaker, was also instrumental in making our vacation memorable. He kept us provided with fresh fish, lobster and conch and took us on snorkeling adventures.
We had enjoyable expeditions to Spanish Wells and Harbour Island which are both easily to access from Current as well as Governors's Harbour in central Eleuthera. North Eleuthera does not have an extensive tourist info-structure but we were able to obtain everything we required without difficulty. For us the relaxed atmosphere was a strong positive as was the friendliness and helpfulness of the residents. We would certainly return to Hibiscus House.

VERY COMFORTABLE BEACH HOUSE

  • 5 of 5
We have been traveling to Current for a number of years and stayed at 4 different houses on North Beach. All houses were very nice for different reasons.
This year marks the 3rd year we have stayed at the Hibiscus House and I can highly recommend the house. Right on the beach, very peaceful and well equipped . Jack always calls to make sure everything is all right and James who takes care of the property and meets you at the airport is first rate. James also provided us with fresh seafood and is available for fishing and snorkeling trips. The people in area are friendly and it is the perfect place to go to experience the real Bahamas.

GIRLFRIENDS GET AWAY

  • 4 of 5
We discovered eleuthera sometime ago and it is so different from any vacation destination – and so perfect for us – that we keep coming back. In the past, we have stayed on the east cost of the island south of governor harbor. This time we wanted to explore north. I loved the settlement of current. Hibiscus house is on the beach facing west capturing sunset. I walked 10 minutes to the beach facing east to catch sunrise. I met fishermen and asked for fresh catch. Next day I had two smiling big guys at my door with a huge bag of freshly caught conch and another full of crayfish (fresh water lobster). oh how yummy they were in ceviche, sauteed or boiled. We did not eat out. We are professional woman. Eleuthera for us is to get away from our hectic lives and just chill. And chill we did. The beach is lovely, white sand with very few rocks (volcanic rocks are common in eleuthera). The ocean is crystal clear and goes from white/translucent small waves to turquoise. We saw one couple strolling on the beach during sunset – never saw another soul on our beach in 7 days. The house is beautifully situated on the beach. The house itself is adequate and a good deal for the price. The owner jack sweeting is a wonderful human being – we had to cancel our trip in february due to a death in the family. He could have just said sorry for your loss and kept our payment – but he invited us to come back anytime. So we went in november. november weather is less predictable, but we loved the alternating sunny days, thunderstorm, rain and more sun. the ocean is gorgeous regardless.

TODD AND NANCY ARE COMING BACK TO HIBISCUS HOUSE!

  • 5 of 5
My wife and I just spent 2 wonderful weeks at Hibiscus house(7/31/13-8/14/13). We have stayed at 6 other Bahamian islands and this spot is one of the best. Many of the islands require an overnight in Nassau, catching the Bahamas Air flight at 10:30 the next morning to arrive at your destination. You can be on the beach at Hibiscus house the same day from the U.S.( you just saved time and money with your toes in the sand!). Let me tell you about the house which is situated on a ridge 30 feet above the ocean and surrounded by lush tropical vegetation giving the house a secluded feeling while providing a view of amazing sunsets. Each day the sunsets are the icing on the cake! The house is very nice, just as pictured online. You can watch the sunsets from the porch or inside from the family room and the outdoor shower is perfect. There is a concrete ramp that leads to a soft white sand beach that extends 20 yards to the ocean. The water depth goes from 0-12 feet in 30 yards with shells/sand dollars/starfish and many small tropical fish around the rocks. While we were there 85% of the time the waves were so small you could have water skied. Some days we saw 1-3 people on the beach and then there were days we saw no one on the beach. My wife has the perfect description of the water" it feels like velvet". Jack has two excellent kayaks and bikes that we went venturing on. We rode the bikes to the Current settlement many times( less than a mile from the house) very nice people-store, post office and dock. There is a main dock just outside of Current by the cut, we rode over on Thursday around 11:30am to watch the mail boat( the Current Pride) arrive from Nassau and all that insues. Pack your snorkel gear, water and whatever else and jump in the kayak and head north or south. We enjoyed heading south towards the cut, there is a very nice beach to stop at and snorkel. You will see lots of fish small to medium size and you can feel the pull from the cut. I have to tell you that the beautiful color and clarity of the water brings us back to the Bahamas every year. Jack is a great guy, always eager to make sure that your trip is special. James the caretaker and Joseph were there to help us but never invaded our privacy, we appreciated them so much.
Thanks to Jack,Joyce, James, Joseph and all the wonderful people that we met on Eleuthera.
