One Month in Paradise

I love this house. Going to sleep and waking to the sounds of the ocean and viewing the breathtaking colors of the Atlantic were just what we needed. We spent a month at DaVilla and had every kind of weather--wind, rain, thunder, lightning, and blessed sun. Two friends stayed for two weeks and then, later, two of our daughters spent a week. We never felt crowded; the rooms are large and the furniture comfortable. The house is clean and easy to maintain. We cooked many meals and the kitchen has most everything you’ll need.
Absolutely the best thing though, is outside the house. The deck is huge and the outside furniture good quality. The beach with its cabana, beach chairs, and lounges make it the perfect place to hang out. The reefs were the best we’ve seen in a long time. Fields of yellow fan coral, parrot fish, rays, turtles, and even a shark.
The owner is easy to work with and the caretaker, Arthur Nixon, is a miracle worker. We had been there four days when the hot water heater broke. Our friends were due to arrive the same day and I thought we would have a least a couple of days of taking cold showers. After explaining the situation to Art, we left to pick up our friends at the airport and by the time we returned, a new water heater was installed and working. We also rented a car from Art at a competitive (for Eleuthera) price. The location is only 15 minutes from Governor’s Harbour where there is easy access to supplies, gasoline, restaurants, and the dock to buy the catch of the day.
We love Eleuthera and would definitely stay at DaVilla again.
