Beautiful and secluded

  • 5 of 5

Our stay at Tropical Impulse was everything we had hoped it would be. Lots of fun in the sun, beautiful, secluded beach and amazing aquamarine water. The house was lovely, clean and comfortable. The views from the deck where breath taking and the kids even enjoyed a game or two of shuffleboard. The owner, Ken was very easy to contact and communicate with. You will need transportation to reach this slice of paradise and to see the rest of the island, but renting a car was not difficult. We had a wonderful time during our stay here.

Beautiful view

  • 5 of 5

Loved the view from the bedrooms, main area, and the lanai. Palm trees frame the beach view and sway in the wind just like in your favorite island movie. We all enjoyed the large, sandy, rock free, beach area in front of the house. Spent everyday in the warm water swimming and kayaking. Opened the windows and doors, the entire time, and enjoyed the ocean breeze. Loved the house and all the vegetation surrounding it. Wonderful to have the open living environment especially after and long Ohio winter. Everyone was very friendly and laid back. The only problem was trying to return to work and pretend not to still be running on "island time". Thank you Ken for answering all our questions and tips for a enjoyable stay. Thanks for the great memories and we will return.

Breathtaking

  • 5 of 5

We spent a week at Tropical Impulse with our 4 kids. It was an experience we will always remember! The private beach was amazing and words can not express the beauty and solitude. The house was just perfect for our family. And the few hick ups we had were taken care of in a very timely fashion. Hopeful to return at some point!!

Tropical Impulse- the only impulse we had was to stay forever!!

  • 5 of 5

This home is situated on what seems a very secluded beach but is walkable for some distance. The location is removed from all the island's activities, but within minutes of attaining groceries, the Queen's hwy, a bit to eat. So its private, but everything is just around the corner!!

The house itself has literally everything you want, spacious, very very clean, and 3 separate bedrooms with their own baths, so makes travelling with older children, or couples perfect. The separate suite downstairs is perfect if you need the extra space.

The host and owner is extremely accommodating, and maintains his property beautifully. We have travelled extensively throughout the Bahamas out islands, been to Eleuthera at least half a dozen times and would definitely return to rent this home specifically.

The pictures on the site are accurate, and yet you still can never capture the full appreciation of the view in front of the home. The turquoise waters, white sand and the waves went from serene calm to playfully rolling, and their is snorkelling right off the beach in front of the house!!

Highly recommend this home

Best Vacation EVER

  • 5 of 5

This was the best family vacation we have ever had. The home is absolutely beautiful. We saw the gorgeous beach from every room. The downstairs room is very secluded and private. During our 8 day stay, we only saw 3 other people walking on the beach. If you are looking to spend some quality time with your loved ones this is definitely the place to go. Our family will remember this vacation forever. We went to the Friday Night Dinner in Governers Harbor, snorkled and fished with Denny, went to Preachers Cave, checked out the Glass Window Bridge and took the ferry over to Harbour Island. The best time was at the house or at the beach, just enjoying the beauty of Eleuthera. The clear bottom kayak was the coolest thing ever (make sure you watch the "weight" you put in it) One adult and one child.....not 2 adults, my husband and I almost sank it. Make sure you check out the conch fritters, they are tasty!! You will want to utilize the kitchen to cook some meals, you can pack frozen meat and take it with you in your check on luggage. We have been home for 3 months now and I am READY to go back. This is definitely the place to go for a lifetime of memories. Once you have been here you will want to come back every year (at least once a year).

Beach Highlights:

Just a short walk down the path lies a completely private beach. It sports beautiful pink sands perfect for beach-combing to find the perfect shell.

Our beach is one of the best on the island for snorkeling and scuba diving. Directly off of our beach lies a huge expanse of reefs there for your enjoyment and exploration.

Enjoy using both of our ocean kayaks. They are both solo/duo kayaks, and one is even clear bottomed so that the reefs can be enjoyed without even getting wet.

The soft sand and mellow waves make for a perfect swimming environment that can be enjoyed by adults as well as children.

Nearby Attractions:

There are an abundance of great activities for the whole family in close proximity to the house. They include exploring deserted beaches, chartering a boat for either deep sea or bone fishing, perusing shops throughout the island, and much more. There are several restaurants nearby the house that serve great food including many local delicacies.
