We had a great time in Eleuthera........Wreckless was a perfect house for us!!! WE love the location......off the road but close to the beach....... the kitchen was well stocked for cooking...... we did a fair amount of cooking - love the fresh herbs growing round the deck........Mary has an eye for comfort and we felt truly at home...... - we relaxed and recharged.......rented SUP boards 2 days at French Leaves - those folks are super customer friendly - we also ate dinner there 3 nights - 1 night at Tippy's.......We do look forward to renting with you again......after over 10 years of rentals.....I think Wreckless is really the kind of home away from home where we do feel like putting our toes in the sand...... Much thanks

WE love this house and the location on Banks Road! Walk across the street for the gorgeous beach - walk down the street for a lovely dinner at Tippy's..... run down the road (if you're a runner ) into town and back then off to the beach for sunshine in paradise! The house has a well stocked kitchen - we were able to make a lovely pizza and enjoy it outside on the patio......Enjoy morning coffee on the deck or take a morning stroll on the beach....Love this house - a great family get-away.....can't wait to come back!

Perfect Family Rental

  • 5 of 5

We had a fabulous time in this house! It is perfectly situated across the street from a gorgeous private beach, a delicious restaurant and it's own tennis court. It was comfortable and immaculately clean with fresh flowers waiting for us. My daughter loved exploring the nature preserve (also in walking distance), lounging on the beach and dancing the limbo at the Friday night fish fry in Gov. Harbor.

Like most islands, Eleuthera can be expensive so next time I will rent a car for the first two or three days and stock the fridge (run don't walk to the island Farm Stand-- the produce is amazing), go snorkeling and rent a stand up paddle board. (It was too windy in early February on this trip).

Also, the property manager was really helpful. We so appreciated her recommendations.

The house and it's location are great

  • 4 of 5

The house is beautiful, well appointed and comfortable. The tennis courts are great and the location near a gorgeous beach and Tippy's could not be better.

Ultimate Home Away from Home!

  • 5 of 5

Spending a week on Eleuthera at the end of February - what an escape from a dreary NYC winter - and Wreckless was the perfect place to escape to! We were right across the road from Tippy's (a Tippy Sunshine everyday is a must) and loved having a private walkway to the beach, which is literally 2 minutes from the front door. The bedrooms were spacious and living areas comfortable; I particularly loved having a such a well-appointed kitchen so that we could make quick lunch or put together snacks for the beach. At night, we loved sitting on the upper deck and look for shooting stars!

The house is next door to a convenient deli and the Levy Preserve is a 5-minute walk beyond that. An easy drive into Governor's Harbor itself with its many charms - the bakery (amazing conch patties!) French Leave, Turtle Lake for kayaking, Friday Fish Fry - and conveniences like the grocery and liquor stores. (Tip: "The Boat" comes in on Tuesdays, so Wednesday are a great day to shop for supplies!)

I can't recommend Wreckless enough for a peaceful, beautiful stay on Eleuthera. We're already planning our next trip!

Welcome to Paradise

  • 5 of 5

Tennis in the front yard, private access to empty beach across the street and bar down the street. If that isn't paradise, I don't know what is. The property is beautifully maintained, the rooms are all comfortable and have private bathrooms and air conditioning. There are decks on all sides of the house so if the beach is too windy and you are too tired for tennis there are plenty of places to lay out. The house is walking distance from Tippy's, Beach House and Banks Road Deli so we didn't rent a car and were perfectly happy with our options.
