Lack of maintenance and cleaning
Unfortunately, our stay at the Tropical Impulse House did not live up to our expectations. The house clearly lacks maintenance and would need a great cleaning. The equipments for the beach in the garage are in very bad condition and we did not use the downstairs accommodation as it strongly had musty smell.
We strongly suspect that the bed of the master bedroom is infested with bed bugs. The situation was so intolerable that we had to leave home after 4 nights on a 9 night stay. Luckily, we were able to find a hotel nearby to welcome us for the rest of our holidays with our 3 young children.
The worst part of this story is that the host has never deigned to contact us despite 2 emails via the homeaway website and 2 phone messages.
We have been renting houses with Homeaway for several years and have always been greatly satisfied with our stays. This bad experience made us realize that in case of a problem, homeaway offers no support to customers. This will definitely be taken into account in the future when planning future holidays.
Homeowners Beware! This fraudulent review is damaging to any homeowner. This house has never
had bedbugs. My home is spotless and we have one of the best housekeepers on the island. My housekeeper had phoned them and was stopping by in a few hours. Before they could come and look, the guests chose to leave. They made this choice before speaking to myself, my caretaker, or my housekeeper. I contacted their private e-mail on this issue but received no response, and as of today (August 17th) I still have not received a response. The guests we had immediately prior as well as after had no complaints involving cleanliness and especially not with bed bugs. The house has never had any issue involving bugs like this, and these claims are baseless.
Owner of Tropical Impulse
What a great location. The beach is incredible which is where we spent 90% of our time. Ken was a great host and very responsive to anything we had questions on. Would definitely go back!
Great views and beach
Lovely home with a paved road. The beach for the house was the best one on the road. Our neighbors used it due to the great location. The house had everything we needed and great extras like the kayaks, snorkel gear and hammock. Beds were comfy and the linens very nice. Could have used a couple more beach towels but the washer and dryer are there so it worked. Ken worked with us on late check out and Leslie was very responsive when we contacted him. Great home for families or a group.
Enjoyed our stay on the island. We rented a car though owners recommendation and had no troubles. The house suited our needs and we can’t wait to go back!
One week in paradise
We spend one week in paradise. The house is beautiful And completely equipped, the 30 seconds walk private beach is amazing And Kenneth is one of the most gentle host We ever had.
Absolutely lovely Island retreat!
Eleuthera Island is magnificent, beautiful, relaxing… So many wonderful things. At the end of the day exploring, hiking, snorkeling, or just sightseeing, we were so happy to come home to Tropical Impulse. As beautiful as Eleuthera it is, I would not describe it as luxurious. The house, however, was always a lovely oasis to return to at the end of the day. Highly recommend; hope to return ourselves someday soon. Great for families, couples, or small groups of eight people or so.
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.
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.
