About the property

House, 1 Bedroom, 1.5 Baths (Sleeps 2)

This vacation rental was completed at the end of 2009 and is built to a very high standard. It overlooks the ocean with a full 360 degree wraparound deck. Access to our beach is only a few steps to the front. The interior was professionally decorated with a very spacious clean contemporary feel. Let the sound of the waves lapping at the beach caress you to sleep on the King size bed.

There is also a very well equipped kitchen with stainless steel appliances and a gas range with convection oven. The living room features a flat panel TV with Blu-ray player,5.1 Surround Sound stereo system, and Ipod Dock. Wireless Internet is also provided.

The Unique Benefits of this House: Eleuthera is a quiet out island of the Bahamas with friendly people and a laid back lifestyle. We felt safe and comfortable the first time we arrived almost 10 years ago.

It also offers some of the most beautiful beaches in the world. Signs designating public beach access dot the Queens Highway and are there to explore.

The Unique Benefits of this House

You can watch the sunrise from bed or sit on the deck with a cool drink and watch the sunset. The full wrap around deck also allows views of the ocean or a small lake to the rear with migratory birds, Heron, Egret, and waterfowl.

Quiet, relaxing, and the best foodie kitchen ever in a rental

  • 5 of 5

Villa Sylphide is a delight. We loved the wrap-around deck with views of the ocean and the stars at night. There are plentiful deck chairs for sunning and relaxing, and a nice beach across the way for early morning walks, and chairs and umbrellas when you want to explore to other island beaches. The gas grill, AC, Internet, and TV worked great. Power and water came and went on some days but this was but a hiccup in the day.

We've been renting vacation properties for years, and typically you wonder what you'll get to work with in the kitchen. Missing glassware? Dull knives? Mismatched plastic dishes? Not a problem here -- the kitchen is very well equipped for any cooking endeavor. The knives were super sharp and making meals was fun. I plan to borrow some design ideas for my own home.

Eleuthera itself was a fun island to explore. It takes some dedication (and GPS or Google Maps) to find some beaches but the most crowded beach we encountered (French Leave Beach) had... 6 people. Grocery shopping is interesting - buy local, not US imports, and cook creatively.

We'd totally recommend Villa Sylphide for a quiet, relaxing and romantic vacation. Thank you!

House was amazing!!! A beautiful setting on an amazing island.

  • 5 of 5

Worth every penny.... An amazing stay. The perfect place to unwind and get away from the rat race of everyday life. Could have stayed at this house and island forever. Not a place if you are looking for the busy tourist attractions at all. This is the perfect place to relax and spend quality time with the one you love. A great experience I would love to do everyday.

Modern, Relaxing, & Dreamy!

  • 4 of 5

Perfect description, well kept property and home. Beautiful ocean view that is a rocks throw away from being at your feet. There were two times that we saw any other visitors on the beach, they were just passing by. The local property manager was very friendly and very helpful... Neighborly. She not only helpful with the house but gave us some information about the island and different activities to do on the island, as well. Great entertainment set up from snorkeling gear to movie watching. Only reason we don't give it five stars... the bed. For our preference it was to firm and not very comfortable. Other than that it felt like home and we are so glad we spent a week honeymooning there. The property owner has great communication and nice to work with. Fresh produce on Tuesdays and Fridays much cheaper to cook than eat out at the restaurants. Loved It!

Beautiful tranquility

  • 5 of 5

The property was exactly what you see in the pictures on the website, only more stunning!

We stayed April 1st -April 10th, 2016. If you want to get away from it all, this is your place to stay. The beach across the street is perfect, we could have stayed on it the whole time, but our sense of adventure took us to many other beautiful beaches around the island. Most of which were deserted; that was exactly what we were looking for. If you do venture out to some of these beaches I recommend a jeep or else you will not be able to reach them. We had to turn back from Lighthouse Beach--the road is very rural and rutted.

The house is tastefully done and you immediately feel right at home and unwind into that state of relaxation we all are so desperately in need of. Should we ever return, we will definitely stay at Brian's house!

Thanks again Brian,

Lynne & Mark

Paradise for two

  • 5 of 5

We just left Villa Sylphide after a glorious 12 days. The house is perfect for 2, we loved the location , and really appreciated the homeliness of the Villa. I know there are lots of things to do or if you want you can do very little as was our case. We only ate out 2 times, 3J's and 1648, loved both of them . We basically picked a direction on the beach and off we went, long walks, tons of sea glass a neat little shells. Brian has a great place here and if you need a 1 bedroom I would be hard pressed to think you could do better. Relax , enjoy the moment and go to the Villa you won't regret it.

The most amazing vacation you'll ever have!

  • 5 of 5

This was the second time that my husband and I have stayed at Villa Sylphide . This year, we stayed for two weeks ( Dec 21-Jan3) It is the most amazing place. We met other people on the road close by and even their reaction was " You guys are staying at THAT place? Wow! Its the best house on the road!" If I could give this house 10 out of 5 stars I would. Brian is the owner and he is amazing. Anne , the property manager, is one of the nicest people I have ever spoken with over the phone. The house is immaculate and has everything that you would need for you time away from home. husband and I refer to this house as "home" because its our dream house. The villa is located right on the water on a quiet secluded road close to Palmetto Point. The locals are amazing and so welcoming. the beach is beautiful and it is rare to even run into another person while you are there. Please don't pass up the opportunity to stay now!
