Amazing place on Eleuthera

  • 5 of 5

David & Michelle's house truly has everything you need for a wonderful vacation. While not located directly on the beach the short path makes it feel like you are. The deck space is incredible to allow you more outside living and having air condition inside was be a welcome relief from the intense sun. THe location is perfect allowing the ability to explore all over the island. Thank you for sharing your wonderful home with us, we truly enjoyed our time there.

Owner's Response: It was our pleasure to host you in our Island home. We are very happy to hear that you enjoyed the house and our closeness to the beach. We enjoy the breezes very much from the porches from both the ocean and the pond. We'd love to have you return so just let us know if you decide to come back to the Island and our home! Very Best, Michele and David

Fourth time's a charm! Can't wait to come back...

  • 5 of 5

This was my fourth time at Whel-Appointed, and I can't wait to go back for the fifth! Everything is, in a word, perfect. From David's great, clear communication, to the house itself, and the island and its people, and the pristine beaches...it couldn't have been any better. Whel-Appointed has beautiful, clean rooms; nice, cool A/C; fantastic water pressure in the shower (key for me); and its proximity to one of the world's best beaches is unparalleled. I almost don't want to tell people any more, as I'd like Eleuthera to be my secret...but I can't help myself. This house, and this island, is a perfect gem. (Thanks, David and Michele, for creating this paradise!)

Magnificent home!

  • 5 of 5

In terms of space the house is probably overkill for two couples but we managed to enjoy every bit of it! The beach is fantastic and the proximity to Governors Harbor makes it much more convenient to run in to town to stores and restaurants. Rented a car from Mr. Gardnier and were very pleased with that..

Perfect House, Perfect Location!

  • 5 of 5

This stay was our third visit to Eleuthera, and Whel Appointed definitely made it our best! We had stayed in Governor's Harbour previously, and also stayed in Rock Sound. Whel Appointed cannot be beat. The house is very well maintained, spotlessly clean, and absolutely gorgeous. The floor plan and layout are perfect for a beach home. One of the best beaches (maybe THE best!) in Eleuthera is literally steps away. We started and ended each day on the covered porches of Whel Appointed, looking at the beautiful, azure blue waters of French Leave Beach. The owners really care about you and your enjoyment of their beautiful home. We already booked Whel Appointed for our next vacation, shortly after we arrived for this visit. It is that nice. Can't wait to go back!

Time and Time again... This is truly Paradise

  • 5 of 5

This was our 3rd trip to Eleuthera and our 3rd stay at Whel-Appointed… My wife and I stayed for 18 days this trip and are booked for 20 days in 2017, that should give you an idea how much we like the Island and all it has to offer but mostly it speaks to how much we like Whel-Appointed.

Dave & Michele thought of everything when building this beautifully comfortable home. Although each stay was just the two of us, the home could easily accommodate 2 or 3 couples. The kitchen is well stocked and the layout works great. The outdoor grill on the balcony just off the kitchen is perfect. Eat at the kitchen island or at the large dinning area table or at the table on the balcony.

The comfortable lounge area and the upper and lower wrap around balconies are so inviting to enjoy your morning coffee or sit in one of the many chairs or rockers and read a book or enjoy the view and sounds of the surf. Don’t forget the third floor Observation Deck with its breath taking views of French Leave Beach and the Atlantic Ocean.

The house is equipped with a lot of beach equipment like chairs, umbrellas, snorkeling gear, coolers, beach towels… Perfect! The walk to the beach from the front door is about 60 seconds, how great is that?

Dave & Michele are such great host, they are more than happy to answer any questions and will do everything in their power to make your stay happy & comfortable.

From the Wi-Fi to the kitchen cooking accessories and everything in-between the house is truly... “Whel-Appointed”

The house is in what we feel is the absolute best location on the Island, Banks Rd at French Leave Beach. We felt like we were the only ones on the beach most days, the Pink sand is indescribably beautiful, the water is perfect for swimming and the beach is wonderful for long walks or just relaxing.

Thank you Dave & Michele for everything!
