The decor is simple but elegant with all your basic amenities and more for a cool beach house. The pool is a great way to end the day after the beach. The beach straight across the property on the other side of Banks Rd is paradise! One of the best on the island and it is just a 5 minute walk or take one of the bikes. There are bikes, kayaks, and all beach needs required provided! The beds are comfortable, AC works great, overall great experience staying here. I highly recommend this place.
Perfect rest & relaxing spot on Eleuthera, Bahamas
We really enjoyed staying with our family at the Trade Winds House on Eleuthera. The house offered everything we needed with a family of 3 adults and 2 teenagers. The location - conveniently close to Governors Harbor, as well as a short stroll to the (private) beach was perfect. The house is in good shape, provides all the basics you need and more, and the pool was great after a long day of sun & sea. It was a great bonus to have plenty of beach (towels, chairs, umbrella) and snorkeling gear, which made our days on the beach and in the ocean even more pleasant.
While Jethro was not physically present on the island during our stay, he was super responsive during the times we had some questions, and he ensured that every question or issue was addressed immediately. He's truly a great host, is proud of his property and wants you to have a comfortable and fun stay. The cleaning lady as well as the pool cleaner were also very approachable and helpful, and were able to provide us with some local connections when needed.
Other references and information provided on things to do, as well as car rentals, places to go, etc. were clearly communicated and made available thus making our stay even more comfortable.
We will definitely keep Trade Winds in mind should we decide to plan a Bahama vacation again, and have already recommended the house to a few other friends and families.
Our group of 7 had an amazing stay at Trade Winds! Beach, ocean views, pool and house were just perfect for our group. Jethro happened to be out of town during our stay but quickly responded and attentive to our needs.
Note: The house is situated in an area of heavy foliage/greenery - be prepared for a variety of insects and arachnids to greet you over your stay. The large friendly moths (money bat) and frogs help ward them off but you will still see quite a variety.
Great family getaway
Trade Winds MADE our vacation. It is centrally located, near a GORGEOUS beach and fun restaurants like Tippy's and Buccaneer's. Gas and Grocery stores are easily accessible. When we returned from the brutal heat, a pool and air conditioning was waiting for us. Due to the high costs of restaurant dining, we usually went out to eat for lunch and cooked meals for dinner. Everything you need it there.
Amazing stay. Amazing House. Amazing Location. Amazing Beach!! My wife and I celebrated our 20th wedding anniversary and couldn't have picked a better place. House has everything you need. Cant go wrong with this one!!!
Spent 10 days at Trade Winds. Was the perfect property for a group. We really enjoyed the proximity to the beach and to town. There is a WONDERFUL breeze on the property that isn't always found on the island. Jethro was super helpful- we did have tremendous storms and the island lost access to water for a bit- even then Jethro responded immediately and was very helpful. The pool is pristine! 10/10 would recommend.
