Guestbook comments from the owner

It was a very relaxing trip and your location is

AMAZING! My husband and I loved the snorkeling especially around the

bend to the north where the fallen rocks are. It was beautiful! Oh how

I wish it was lobster season when we were there! I could not believe

how many we saw in and around the rocks right in front of the house. We

were fortunate enough to follow an octopus for a while one day as well

as come across a spotted moray eel in some rocks right off the deck.

Not to mention the hundreds of groupers, angel fish, etc...it was some

of the best snorkeling we've done in the Bahamas!

Terrific place to stay

  • 5 of 5

Beautiful, comfortable and very clean vacation cottage right on the Carribean sea with spectacular views. Our family of four had a wonderful time. Nice and centrally located makes travel to anywhere on the island not too bad of a drive and just a short hike over to the Atlantic side.

Ada was very sweet and accomadating and renting the SUV from her made transport to and from the airport a very easy process.

2 Sisters had everything we needed to get away and just relax and have fun. It was so nice to have my family unplugged and present! The boys, my husband included, had great fun on the diving board and there was good snorkeling right out front of the cottage at the north end of the cove around the rocks, even saw a nurse shark!

Eleuthera was everything we wanted, no touristy stuff, quiet and easy access to lots of great beaches and great snorkeling. 2 Sisters was perfect for us simple, beautiful and very peaceful. Thanks for sharing such a wonderful place with us, lots of good memories made.

Charming house, lovely location, beautiful grounds and incredible view. We found total relaxation.

  • 4 of 5

Charming, peaceful get-away, with beautiful sunset views, lovely grounds, private dock for sunning, swimming, and snorkeling. Clean and well kept. Close to a nice grocery store, several beaches, Island Farm (a gem), and good pizza. We loved having breakfast on the top deck, and watching the sun set.

Mimi and Doyle were very helpful. A great place for a laid-back vacation, and a good location for exploring the island.

amazing!

  • 5 of 5

First time in Eleuthera. My husband, 11 yr old daughter and 16 yr old son all stayed at 4 different places 3 nights each so that we could see the whole island comfortably. This was BY FAR my favorite spot. It is amazing. I could live here forever. The ocean was even prettier than the pictures. The property was like a museum's garden. The house was adorable and sophisticated at the same time. The porches fantastic. The view outstanding. I want to buy this place and never leave! My son was bummed there was no internet for what his normal usage, but hey, we didn't come here for internet!

Owner's Response: Thanks so much for taking the time to send your thoughts. I am delighted that you were happy, comfortable and, like us, mesmerized by the natural beauty surrounding 2 Sisters. Please think of us if you ever return to Eleuthera. ( Apologies in advance to your son- we're not likely to update internet access to accommodate heavy user's - We hope that our guests can MOSTLY unplug once they arrive) You and your family are welcome back anytime!!

Canadian Christmas Holiday 2017

  • 5 of 5

Our family spent 12 nights at 2 Sisters over the Christmas 2017 holiday. Everything we found about the home and location was excellent.

The home is well equipped with kitchen amenities which came in handy as we cooked most of our meals. To that end, we did most of our shopping for basics at Midway Cost Cutters, only a mile's drive away, and for vegetables and breads we ventured to Island Farm Market where there was excellent choice.

The house is well furnished and provisioned with towels and linens, the air conditioning throughout worked well during our stay in a very warm period for end of December.

The location is superb. The full wall of screened windows facing the Caribbean, and the full vernandah, open up the wonderful view of the coral reefs in Little Bay. The highlight is the waterfront deck and the excellent diving board. It's about 3 meters off the water and the water depth is sufficient for any dive or jump. An awesome part of the experience. And the snorkelling, which we did every day, is great and all around you can see lots of tropical fish and the odd turtle. From the deck, watching the mackerel and trumpetfish jumping and chasing schools of small fish was constant entertainment, with the occasional dolphin making an appearance.

The location about midway on the island gave us great opportunity to explore in the rental car which was provided by Doyle and Ada Sands, the 2 Sisters caretakers. We covered lots of beaches, most of which we had to ourselves literally, including Lighthouse Beach, Ten Bay Beach, French Leave Beach, Double Bay Beach (excellent snorkeling there too), Savannah Sound Beach, and so many other idyllic spots. Enjoyed great lunches and dinners at Tippy's and at the Buccaneer Club in Governors Harbour. We enjoyed the views at the Glass Window Bridge, had a soak close to there in the Queen's Pool and visited Harbour Island which (unlike the rest of Eleuthera) is very busy. We also were able to have the awesome experience of attending the Junkanoo on Christmas Day in Gregory Town. Just a great experience able to tour from the 2 Sisters. Almost everything is within an hour's drive. What is most evident about Eleuthera and its people is that it is safe and friendly and so very hospitable.

Any questions or issues we had were quickly addressed by Mimi or Doyle and to sum it up, the service is more than "awesome".

From a very cold Canada, we plan on returning and look forward to doing so.

Wow! Just Wow!

  • 5 of 5

It's difficult to describe how wonderful this property turned out to be for our family vacation. I went into this vacation and property with open expectations. I left the cottage and the island completely relaxed and reconnected to the family. 2 Sisters Cottage is a well equipped house overlooking one of the most picturesque Caribbean views I only dreamt existed. We spent our mornings taking turns diving off the diving board, snorkeling in the clear turquoise blue waters, and dropping a few fishing lines off the dock. The afternoons were spent exploring the more than 100 breathtaking beaches the island has to offer. Night time was spent preparing dinners around the barbecue and kitchen.

Our after dinner routine consisted of taking in a late sunset from the top deck and planning our next day's adventure. We made this vacation about reconnecting with each other and 2 Sisters Cottage was a perfect setting to do this .

The house itself lends itself well to offer both privacy from the outside world as well as convenience to exploring both the north and south end of the island. There is a new food market within two miles that offers all the basics needed if you would like to cook your own meals as we did. It's not easy for us to travel because my wife has a gluten allergy. We chose to prepare our food and found 2 Sisters to offer everything we needed to cook our meals with no issues. For anything more extravagant, Governors Harbour is just north and can offer varying types of stores. The road to the house is typical of all the roads on the island as they are not all paved and tend to be carved out of the natural landscape of the island. It makes for a neat adventure as you explore the island as we found out on the southern part of the island.

We found both Mimi, our gracious owner of the house, and Doyle, the caretaker, to be most helpful in providing both information, directions and local culture.

Mimi, thank you for opening your home to us. It was a perfect vacation and I wouldn't change a thing!

The Great Escape!

  • 4 of 5

June 19th - June 24th 2017

My husband and our sons, ages 22 and 20 absolutely loved staying at 2 Sisters! A very comfortable home and spacious for all of us. We immediately felt relaxed and at home. When you first walk in the front door the first thing you see is the Caribbean! . 2 separate back decks (not including the lower level either or the hut down by the dock) with an amazing view of the beautiful blue ocean. Doyle (caregiver) met us at the airport and got us our rental car, and directed us to the house. 25 minutes from Governers Harbour Airport. You will love the private cove with the diving board, a dock to hang out, a very nice shaded hut with seating. Snorkeling right in your backyard and there was plenty of sea life to see! S The kitchen is stocked with everyday items you would need. Great music CD selection! The outdoor shower came in handy as well. There is a small grocery just 5 minutes south from house on Queens Highway called Cost Cutter which is handy. There is a wonderful market called Island Market towards Palmetto Point (Going north) that you must go to. Restock days are Tuesday's and Friday's and we got to tour the back of the garden! What a treat! Fresh baked breads, jams, specialty items and wonderful produce.

We made the trek to Lighthouse Beach (Southern most point of Eluethera) (WOW!) Be prepared as the road off from Queens Highway to get there, is rough terrain, but worth it! It was so enjoyable to explore the small towns along the way. Stop in Tarpum Bay to get a bite at Sammy's Definitely explore the side roads and see where they land as you will discover some beautiful beaches! Tenbay Beach was gorgeous and very close to the house. French Leave near Governers Harbour. Take a day trip and head north to HArbour Island. What a cool place and the beach is again gorgeous! Be prepared to pitch 40 -50 bucks (cash only) for the a golf cart to get you around for the day. Along the way we stopped at Gregory Town and there are a couple neat gift shops and Take aways to stop and eat. Glass Window Bridge! Spectacular view of where the Atlantic and Caribbean meet.

Go to Tippy's near Governers Harbour. Friday nights in Governers Harbour is Fish Fry! Music, Food Dancing the locals and other tourist you meet is so fun!

We want to thank you so much for sharing your wonderful home and have been bragging about it since we have been back! Highly recommend! Hope to return soon!

Car: recommended

Little Bay is located in central Eleuthera about midway between Governors Harbor and Tarpum Bay,. The area is famous for numerous beautiful deserted beaches and gin clear ocean water- a blue that defies description in words. Natural beauty abounds, though services such as restaurants, grocery stores, gas stations are close by and easily accessible. You will find the locals extremely helpful and friendly.
