Don't miss-out on this Caribbean paradise. Everything on the website is true… and more. Large groups or small… family or friends…young or old… sportsman or bookworm…Capricorn House is fun and relaxing for all. We walked the miles of pink, pristine beaches, snorkeled in the reef-protected, calm ocean waters, sunbathed by the freshwater pool, witnessed the brilliant sunrises and magnificent sunsets, and entertained under the incredible starlit skies. Discover this special place… You'll be back!

Loved Capricorn House

Our group, 12 adults and two toddlers, had the most splendid
week at
Capricorn House. The grounds are large enough to accommodate
everyone (in
separate spaces or together), and the beach is isolated and
gorgeous. The
house is well appointed and well stocked with books, games,
spices, sun tan
lotion and bug spray, making it easy to move right in and feel
at home. It
was a hard place to leave and we're already working on coming back!

We brought our family to Capricorn House with high hopes for an exceptional holiday and left wanting to return again and again. Capricorn House bids you to relax and enjoy through its abundant amenities and serene, private surroundings. The property is expansive and lush with fruits and herbs and beautiful flowers. It easily hosts a large group with the perfect blend of communal space and privacy. The caretakers and staff discreetly ensured that we were never in want of anything. Walk on the beach, swim in the pool, grill freshly caught fish or lobster on the patio ... Capricorn House is a gorgeous retreat you will treasure

This was the best vacation my family and I have ever taken. The beach was
pristine and so private, we did not see one other person during entire
stay.
The house is lovely and has all brand new bathrooms which were wonderful
and
the kitchen was state of the art which helped us save some money as we
cooked at home for three nights. There is
wireless internet and many DVD's to watch when you stay in. A truly
lovely
home with everything we could have asked for, a gorgeous beach, warm pool,
plus comfortable and luxurious beds. We will be heading back next year!

Rated: 5 of 5True Bahamian ParadiseFrom my perspective, the closest vacation experience that I can make to my stay at Capicorn House Bahamas is it is like staying at a Ritz Carlton except adding the besutiful, isolated pink sand beach and a full compliment of ocean toys (kayaks, etc.). You kind of feel as though you're on your own private island because you cannot see another home from anywhere on the property. I've been to the Bahamas many times (my husband was born there) but this was truly the most incredible mixture of all the best scenery and exquisite gardens with 5-Star accomodations. Worth every penny! · By Suzie Q from Orlando Florida on 12/30/2009 for a stay in 2/1/2008

Heaven in Eleuthera

Our visit to Capricorn House March 2006 was superb! From the moment we saw the welcoming yellow door to the our last longing look at the water, we were charmed by the beauty of the property.
The main house is beautiful and welcoming. Each bedroom is special in its own way so it was difficult to choose one!
the dinning room with its warm red walls has a special view of the water. It is only a hint of the wonderful path to the spectacular turquoise water lapping against pink sand. The water was silky and delightful to float in,just what we needed to relax and renew our spirits.
If you like an evening swim, the private pool is lit for evening. The sky is so beautiful in the evening,perfect for swimming and dinner by the pool.
If you feel the need to get off the grounds (hard to believe) you can visit the nearby towns for a bit of shopping and mingling with the very friendly native people. Eleuthera is a very unspoiled island, a pleasure to experience in our hectic world.
We cooked in the well equipped modern kitchen or grilled on the state of the art grills and enjoyed our meals on either of the two decks while enjoying the show in the evening sky.
We also walked a bit down the beach and treated ourselves to dinner and music at Tippy's restaurant.
Truly, staying here was like finding a bit of heaven, where we felt relaxed and renewed by the end of our visit. We can't wait to return to this haven of beauty and tranquility. Thank you Capricorn House for our best vacation ever!

Capricorn House in Eleuthera

  • 5 of 5
  • Submitted: Feb 9, 2009

We went to the Capricorn House for our honeymoon in September 2007. Eleuthera is amazingly remote and rural, the perfect place for a quiet vacation or honeymoon. The Island seems backward, but that is part of the charm. You won’t find any tacky tourist traps. The natives are very friendly and helpful.

The Capricorn House is a beautiful estate outfitted like a luxury resort, which swaddled us in luxury with a modern kitchen, designer rooms, barbeque & lounging porches and secluded pool. The property is located directly on the beach which was mostly deserted when we were there. The ocean was warm and perfect for swimming and snorkeling. There are many different reefs right off the beach full of coral and exotic fish. A rocky reef about a mile offshore forms a natural breakwater bay area that shelters you from the open ocean which makes it perfect for using the provided canoe or kayak. We fished and caught snapper and other fish. The best restaurant on the island, Tippy’s, is a short walk down the beach.

We went bone fishing one day and had a blast, the flats were mostly deserted and the fish were hard to catch but the setting was calm and beautiful. Near the end of the trip we traveled up to Spanish Wells, which is an interesting contrast to Eleuthera. The natives are quite different and there is a thriving fishing industry. Although Spanish Wells is heavily populated, the pristine beach was practically empty.

Each night we returned to an amazing home that became a relaxing end to whatever the day’s adventures had been. We often cooked dinner in the well-equipped kitchen, unwound in the pool or sat on the porch overlooking the ocean. Our hosts were as helpful as possible suggesting activities, restaurants and general tips that made this one of the most favorite vacations I have ever taken. We even learned how to shuck coconuts using our bare hands! I would highly recommend the Capricorn House to anyone thinking of going to the Bahamas or Eleuthera. Thanks!

Eleuthera is an incredible place, the house is most mesmerizing oceanfront place we had ever seen. Capricorn house was more that we expected and we have truly enjoyed a fabulous trip. This is the second visit to Capricorn for our friends and the first for us. We loved the local restaurants and the people were all so welcoming. The bathrooms were a great surprise as they are all clean, new and well done. Great grill for the fish we caught also, professional all the way. So much better that a hotel and actually was cheaper that having to pay hotel and restaurants for each meal. We are hooked on this place. Try the local bakery also!
