About the property

House, 4 Bedrooms, 2.5 Baths, (Sleeps 11)

The Bluemoon is situated at the end of a long white-sand beach, directly on a small private cove called 'Rose Cove by the locals because of the natural beauty of the location. A few steps are all that separate you from the brilliant blue Caribbean waters. The large elevated sundeck provides spectacular views of the South Palmetto Point beach and sunsets over Pineapple Cays just a short distance offshore.We have just added two kayaks for your enjoyment!

This spacious home can sleep 11 people in four bedrooms.4#(Pink Sands) master bedroom has a king bed, a private bathroom and a view of the ocean.1#(The Reef) has three very comfortable single beds 2#) (Sea Shells) Has two full beds and a bunk 3# ( Sea Glass) Has a full , a single. .Each room is individually air conditioned for your comfort.The living room and kitchen area are open and fresh with lots of windows and views of the water across the deck. Shade from the tropical rays is plentiful in the Bahamas room, which is screened in and connects the sundeck to the rest of the house.

The Bluemoon is the ideal location to soak in the tranquil sea or have a sunset cocktail on the deck or our small private beach. Our favorite restaurants are near by ...Unique Village for the best cracked conch on the island, everyone likes the French Leave restaurant 1684 , my personal favorite for lunch is da Perk coffee shop! Runaway Bay Marina is a short walk from the house.

Our caretaker, Mr. Aurthur Nixon can meet you at Governers Harbour Airport, handle any questions you may have during your stay and can also arrange rental cars or Taxis. Please give us a call , text or email we enjoying sharing and would be happy to fill you in on all that Bluemoon and Eleuthera has to offer.

Bluemoon is owned by the Mills brothers and their wives. Jeff and Ulrika Mills live in California, Phoebe and Howard Mills live on the coast of South Carolina. We purchased the home from the original owner Ross Rogers , Mr. Rogers is an Architect from Canada and he built the home in the 1970s for his family. He and his family enjoyed many wonderful years on Eluthera. Mr.Rogers was an avid gardener, hence the beautiful tropical gardens!

Howard Mills purchased this house in 2003

We loved our stay at Blue Moon! We had 3 couples and one young child. And there was still an empty room. The house is spacious and great for large groups and families with kids. The kitchen, living, and dining area are all connected so there is plenty of room for everyone to hang out together or separately. There is also a large screened in porch area with a porch swing as well as a large deck with close up views of the bright blue Caribbean! The landscaping is beautiful and created total seclusion so that you can not see your neighbors at all. Make sure to check out the little stone paths that wind through the garden around all the amazing flowering tropical plants. The property has its own private steps right into a secluded cove! THE SNORKELING IS AMAZING right off the steps! You can also go fishing or kayaking right out of the backyard, and there is a fish cleaning station by the water, (and a grill on the deck). The back yard has a beachy sandy area with a giant old sea grape tree for shade. Great for laying out and for kids to play in the sand. There are also child friendly beaches nearby and they are all different: some are in bays shallow with no waves, others have waves for surfing, others have amazing reefs for snorkeling. All will be the most beautiful most secluded beach you have ever been to! The kitchen was well stocked and there are plenty of sheets, bath and beach towels, and washer and dryer. You will need to bring your own soap, shampoo, toilet paper, etc. There are 2 full bathrooms with showers (one very nice newly renovated!) and one "men's room" with just a toilet. The house is just right, clean and well decorated, but not too fancy so that you don't have to worry about your sandy feet. It is very relaxed and you will not want to leave! Definitely rent a car (a jeep or 4-wheel drive if you really want to explore the island). The locals are very friendly and helpful and it is impossible to get lost. There is a little town with a bank, grocery store, liquor store, and gas station near by. There are also lots of nice little restaurants all over and an organic farm with fresh veggies. Fresh catch of the day at the docks! The island will satisfy a group of people with all different interests: Nature, historic arcitecture, fishing, eating, swimming, and relaxing. The price was amazing especially split among a group. The kitchen and dining area are well suited for people who enjoy cooking. We will be back to Blue Moon for sure!

very nice, quiet, comfortable house. we enjoyed our holidays so much!

  • 4 of 5

We spent very nice vacation in this beautiful and large house, near the sea, located in the middle of Eleuthera island, so it was easy to visit, in the north or the south.

Thank you to Howard.

Wonderful and relaxing

  • 4 of 5

We spent 8 days here and loved it! Our family of five was looking for a nice, warm, beachy vacation, and we are not the resort type. We had never been to the Bahamas, and chose Eleuthera for the right mix of nature and amenities, not too barren and not too commercialized. We chose Blue Moon for it's location on the water and on the Caribbean side, and near center of the island. After being there and exploring the island, we realized that Blue Moon was the perfect spot for us. The house is sited in a unique way that gives you the water access, private beach, peacefulness, and a classic view of palm trees bordering your picture of turquoise water and white sand with tiny islands in the distance, and in the evening the sun setting is magnificent! Snorkeling right from the house is such a treat (although not the best the island has to offer), and the two kayaks were a bonus. The house was perfect for us, but again, we were not looking for luxury. It was clean, and well represented by the online photos. There is everything you need, and we like the fact that essentials are left to be shared (kitchen and bath). However not everything is in the best condition, and the first impression of the drive in, and the outside of the house is that it could use some tlc. Another important vacation issue for us is that we felt very safe at the house and on the island, and well taken care of by the property manager.

Great Place close to a wonderfull sea bay

  • 5 of 5

The house is not luxury but nice.

It would need a little bit of maintenace, especially on the outside.

The location is great, and the bay is wonderfull.

If you are looking a vacation to enjoy the seaside and the nature this is a good opportunity.

Negative points: Flies and mosquitoes, especially in the evening or during BBQ

When we arrived nobody introduced and explained the house to us

A great destination for a large group and adventurous souls!

  • 4 of 5

A spacious home which had the perfect floor plan for a large group. The bedrooms lined up on the left hand side of the large hallway, and the living areas separated by this hallway to an open kitchen,/living area. It is not fancy(a bit shabby in a couple bedrooms), but has enough staple, decent appliances and sturdy household items to be functional--we found the ice-maker especially convenient! The bedrooms were comfortable and spacious. The living areas were furnished with a generous amount of seating, although the cushions are a bit tired--we flipped and fluffed and it worked. A newly remodeled bathroom made the 1/2 bath look shabby. Outdoor living areas was beautiful, just a few steps to the water, via steep concrete steps, and a sandy area at which we enjoyed the 2 beach chairs provided (could use a few more chairs). The caretaker was contacted in order to get the use of the chairs locked in the basement, and the 4 kayaks promised- the most fun adventure (besides the prop plane ride from Nassau) I had! There were also 2 pedal bikes, but they both had flat tires and there's nowhere to go anyway.The kitchen had a smell of mouse urine and some droppings in the cabinets & numerous wasp nests outside(one of the kids got stung)--there was only an empty bottle of wasp spray under the sink, however, and the caretaker, although helpful in informing us the telephone was broken (it was fixed on "Island time" 4 days later), and able to help us figure out the fan/light configuration and get us batteries for the empty remote-controls, was informed of the nests, did not attempt to treat them during the duration of our stay. Screened room was a great place to relax on the swinging love-seat.

The island: no street signs, stores are unmarked with indiscriminate hours of operation, numerous restaurants and local watering holes where the drinks are generously strong, Island prices ($$$). we brought and cooked our own meals 90% of the time--everything but fresh fruit and veg are ok to bring through customs. 4-wheel drive down a road to a remote beach to see a wreck, &the beach was strewn with plastic debris and trash burns on a daily basis. gems: Tippy's bar, French Leave restaurant. Talk to the locals at the roadside tiki hut bars, great way to learn tips. Bug spray: no-see-ums will get you! Best bread: Island farm, a short ride south. $5 water taxi to Harbor Island, $50 golf cart/day, it's a fun adventure. visit the blue holes, and lighthouse beach

Owner's Response: Thank you so much for taking the time to reveiw Bluemoon. Your input is so important in helping us decide what needs to be done ect.. 1) I would like to address the smell in the kitchen , it has been taken care of . It was not a mouse and we did a very complete search! The house has been exterminated! I also posted a note to ask guest to leave shells out side they often create odors.If any future guess notice smells or something that does not look clean , we ask that you contact us right away, we really care about your stay and we also want our home to be as clean and pleasant as possible. 2 ) lawn chairs we do have plenty of lawn chairs and they are locked under the house so that they remain in good condition for our guest, so sorry they should have been taken out before your arrivial. I have spoken to our wonderful caretaker and he is on it. Sorry 3) As for the bikes they are our private bikes and I agree unless you are a real biker there are no bike trails ect 4) Wasp nest and spray, I have our gardener on alert! He will get rid of them as he becomes aware. I have also stocked all cabinets with spray Sorry.5) As for renovations , we are so excited about the progress we have made and continue to make, we made many improvements this summer 2016 ! We are still a work in progress , you should be able to get a feel for the house by looking at the photos . We are a relaxed beach house with a wonderful floor plan perfect for large groups on one of the most beautiful spots on the island , named Rose Cove by the locals because of the natural beauty!Thank you for helping us create a more wonderful experenice for our next guest
