Lovely inside, tired outside but the ocean view and beach acces is incredible

  • 4 of 5

Needs some tender loving care. A functioning bbq would have been nice. Thankfully we were able to be creative with the broken bbq’s on the property. Even though there were a few deficits we had an amazing time at this beautiful location. The fishing was amazing!

Great house and great hosts

  • 4 of 5

Loved the house and the location. It was equipped with all the necessary beach necessities. Beds were comfortable and had a great breeze. Beach was a bit rocky but so beautiful. The only downside was the iffy WiFi. Be sure and go to Island Farm and Da Perk.

Pristine beaches, Caribbean paradise!

  • 5 of 5

Spent a wonderful week in Eleuthera at Magic Sand vacation rental. Seamless from the start- Hugh (the owner) gave good instructions and we rented a car from his contact. She met us at the airport, and all went well from there. Driving took a conscious effort initially, but quickly became second nature.

The house was very comfortable and well outfitted. We were happy we had stayed on the Atlantic side, as there were terrific ocean breezes. We had no problems with mosquitos or no see-ums during our stay.

The Double Bay Beach was private and very pretty. During low tide, there were many rocks and tide pools to explore for treasures, as well as a nice beach to walk. We found Magic Sand to be at a good spot on the island, allowing us to explore the Northern, Southern and Central parts of the Island. The island is stunningly beautiful- a treat to the senses. We enjoyed trying to find remote beaches (SUV necessary) and trying local cuisine. We bought fresh grouper at Tarpum Bay dock, and cooked at our rental. The house is equipped with spices, pots and pans, a grill outside, and all we needed. We particularly enjoyed sitting on the porch deck and in the Tiki covered deck

with a glass of wine in the evening, or our breakfast in the morning. The house had comfortable beds, good water pressure in the showers, and a large flat screen in the living room. Many dvd and cds were available, as well as books for most genres. The wifi is iffy-

and seemed to be better in the evenings.

We enjoyed frozen daiquiris and conch salad at Leo Rose after searching for sea glass at James Cistern beach (awesome finds). Tried Tippy's which was fun but pricey, and The Buccaneer. Grocery stores were adequate- we did buy produce at Island Farms, and found someone selling stone crabs- delish! Residents were friendly and helpful.

We have only positive things to say about this trip and rental. Would return in an instant!

Great Property/ Location

  • 5 of 5

We stayed at Magic Sands late Oct 2015 with another couple. The property is totally secluded and the house is very comfortable. The house layout is perfect for 2 couples. Bedrooms are spacious, beds and linens are very nice. The kitchen is well stocked and has everything you have at home. Lots of beach toys, "floaties", etc. The TV and movie/book selections were incredible. Everything was clean and modern. Double Bay is a wonderful beach.....can walk for a long way without seeing anyone. Only problem we had was the Gas grille wasn't working but there was a charcoal grille on the property . Thanks for sharing your piece of paradise!!!!

Owner's Response: Real glad that you folks enjoyed our place in paradise. Did you note that the gas grill is stainless steel. This goes to show just how severe the conditions are being that close to the ocean. Really unbelievable. Anyway, come again when you can and thank you for your honest critique. Hugh

Paradise!

  • 5 of 5

My 2 adult children and I traveled to Magic Sand for a week and were amazed!

The home is incredibly private, well appointed and almost luxurious in its furnishings, yet at the same time, homey, warm and very comfortable. We loved the views from both porches and literally felt like we were the only people on the beach! Walking down from Liki Tiki, it was rather lava rocky, but we loved exploring the tide pools,(saw LOTS of hermit crabs!) and a mere few feet down the beach was pristine, pink sand, calm aquamarine water, palm trees and a 10 star beach that we were able to walk to! Perfect!

We explored French Leave Beach, saw the Glass Bridge, loved the jerk sauce, bread, pepper jelly and salsa from Island Farms and lunches at Wild Orchid and Beach Club.

We did have a few days of rain, but it brought out the most awesome tropical tree frogs! And the crabs were running down the street! Loved it!

The sunsets were nothing short of amazing. Sue was awesome with helping with the car.....even helping us when we took a wrong turn!

To be totally honest, beware of the no-see-ums. They are brutal. Even with Off bug spray, we all got chewed up pretty bad.

We have visited many islands in the Caribbean and according to all 3 of us, this was definitely one of our very favorites!

Thank you Hugh!
