Great Place

  • 5 of 5

We really loved this place. We were 2 friends visiting Eleuthera and this was the perfect base to explore. Lori was great in helping get us organized and Ivan the caretaker was super helpful. Everything worked great. It's the Bahamas so all is a bit rustic but we really enjoyed cooking in and hanging out in the early morning and late afternoon/early evening on the deck outside. Getting into the water from the side cove was doable and swimming out in front was great. Bring Tevas to get in and out. It's worth it. During the day we were out exploring all the great beaches. I am hoping that Lori was as happy with us as we were with Oceangoing!

Owner's Response: We are so glad you enjoyed your stay! It was my pleasure helping you get organized with your trip. I am always happy to answer any questions before our guests arrive as our goal is to have you enjoy the house and island, and I am happy to hear Ivan was helpful as well. Tevas or water shoes are a must, but it is worth it to be able to swim and snorkel right off from the house. Again, it was my pleasure helping you folks and we hope you have the opportunity to return and enjoy Oceansong again!! Warm regards, Lori & Tim

Lovely place to stay!

  • 5 of 5

We enjoyed our stay here and would definitely come back. You can swim on the rocky beach if the water isn't rough. The views were fantastic from inside and outside, and the house is very private. Everything you need to prepare a basic meal is available there. Cons: You will need to pick up toilet paper, paper towels, dishwashing detergent if you plan to use the dishwasher, and washing detergent. Everywhere else we've stayed from VRBO and other sites have generally provided these things. The pillows were sorta flat. Other than that, fantastic place to stay.

Owner's Response: Hi Jennifer, So glad you enjoyed your stay at Oceansong and we do hope you have the opportunity to enjoy it again! Thank you for the feed back, as it helps us provide a better experience for our future guests. We do normally provide an initial supply of paper products and dish soap, so we'll review this with our cleaning person/caretaker. Thanks again! Lori & Tim

Comfortable, Quiet, with only the Caribbean to hear at night

  • 5 of 5

Oceansong is a cottage right on the Caribbean Sea with a great sundeck from which one can watch the sea change from turquoise to emerald greens, to aquamarine and then to count the millions of stars each night, all while listening tot he waves rippling on the shore beneath your feet. When we were there there was a day of rough seas and the thundering roar of water into the adjacent tidal pool was fantastic.

The bed is comfortable, the house has everything you would possibly need, and the local grocery store (Big Rock) is close to the house. The owners are very quick to answer any questions and are knowledgeable about the Rainbow Bay area and the surrounding townships. The spot is truly unique and we are grateful to have found it. Highy recommended.

A week to remember!

  • 5 of 5

Four friends and myself decided we wanted a week getaway in warm weather. After hearing wonderful things about Eleuthera Island from another friend who has been going there for 3 years, we decided to give it a try. Oceansong was the perfect getaway for us. Peaceful, beautiful, comfortable. We met wonderful people, had great food and drink. We made food for breakfast, had bigger lunch or dinner, groceries are expensive but remember everything comes by boat. Lived in bathing suits, not one bad day of weather. The local people on the island are friendly and pleasant, and helpful. Can't say enough about the whole experience. Beautiful clean beaches, calm water, so different than any other beach I've been on. Home owners are very helpful in trip planning.

Great location & beautiful view!

  • 5 of 5

Oceansong is located right on the Caribbean side of the island. The beach by the house is rocky, but great for snorkeling and kayaking. We enjoyed the beautiful view of the ocean from the 4 sets of sliding glass doors on the upper level, and falling asleep to the sound of the waves was lovely! There are several beautiful sandy beaches nearby, including Rainbow Bay, which is just a few minutes away. There are a few other houses nearby, but Oceansong felt fairly private and we were never disturbed. In general, Eleuthera is a great place to go if you'd like a gorgeous beach all to yourself.

We came in early June and found that the ceiling fans and breeze were usually enough to keep the temperature inside quite pleasant. We did use the AC once on an especially humid day.

We appreciated the central location of this house. Day trips to either tip of the island were easy to manage and well worth the drive. Some of the beach access roads can be pretty rough, so if you're going to do some exploring, rent a vehicle with high clearance.

The house was clean and well stocked with everything we needed. Every once in a while the water would come out of the tap rusty, so just pay attention when cooking. You can buy a large container of drinking water at the grocery stores for $5.

We had a beautiful and relaxing vacation here. After seeing much of the rest of the island, we were very happy that we chose to stay at Oceansong!
