Overview

Central Eleuthera House Rental Photos and Description

1 bedroom, 1 bathroom, sleeps 2

NEWS: British Celebrity Magazine OK! loves Amori House! July 5th 2011 Issue. OK! says...

'For the real Bahamian experience, rent an idyllic ocean-front cottage such as Amori House on Eleuthera island...this picture-perfect cottage sits on the beautiful Ten Bay Beach and is just 80 ft from the water's edge. With a pretty nautical decor, the one-bedroom cottage comes fully equipped with all the mod cons. One of OK!'s favorite places was sitting on the deck, sitting cocktail in hand, watching the sun set over the ocean.'

--

Quietly nestled on 1 acre of oceanfront property, our cozy island-style house offers spectacular views of Ten Bay Beach which Frommers Guide 2010 calls 'one of the best beaches in The Bahamas, with sparkling turquoise water and a wide expanse of soft white sand.' Calm, shallow waters await swimmers of any skill level and those who like to fish and snorkel.

MORE INFO: Our amenities include wireless internet, air conditioning, sea kayaks for exploring gorgeous Ten Bay Beach, hammock, and inexpensive catering among many other things!

We have a very friendly and resourceful on-island property manager who will check you in and out of the property. She will also be available to answer any questions you may have during your stay.

PLEASE NOTE: We have a 7 Night Minimum.

Amori House was built by the owners in October 2009.

PRESS: 'A dream come true, Amori House is a beautiful one bedroom cottage right on the stunning quiet Ten Bay Beach.

This is a real Bahamian experience: things go slow and days are spent in the hammock, at the beach or exploring the island’s bays…Petite but perfect, this brand new home comes fully equipped and has the most beautiful sunset views over the Caribbean sea to boot.

The attention to detail and pretty blue and white décor make the place feel like a home from home, while the big flat screen TV came in handy for the long quiet nights… The best part is the wooden deck, the perfect place to enjoy a sunset drink, and the beach beyond....'

Peaceful and Cozy Honeymoon! Just What We Needed!

  • 5 of 5

The Amori House was exactly what we were looking for! Secluded, quaint and stocked with the items we needed to enjoy the beaches of the Bahamas. We wanted our own little slice of heaven without the chaos of a big hotel and that's exactly what we got. The house is situated on a public beach, but we never felt like we had to compete for space because most beach-goers respected that the area in front of the house was ours to claim. Plus it was nice to visit with the locals and tourists, and the beach never had more than 15 people on it at a time. As mentioned, the house rental came with everything you would need to enjoy the beach (kayak, floating chairs with cup holders, snorkel gear, coolers, and more). It also had an outdoor hose to clean the sand off after hanging on the beach all day, which is great, as no one like walking on sand after a nice shower. As for the inside for the house…it was very well kept and we really didn’t need to buy any items for cleaning or cooking. All the fans worked and the air conditioning in two different rooms was clutch. Now don’t judge, but having a working TV with dish signal, as well as Wi-Fi was important for me (although it did go in out a bit with bad weather), as it was Fantasy Football playoffs and even though I was on my honeymoon I had to at least set my lineup and watch a game, or two, or three, or four. In terms of activities, we spent about half our days hanging at the beach in front of the house and cooking our own meals, including a Thanksgiving dinner. The rest of the time we spent exploring the island. Our favorite beaches were Ten Bay, which is where the house is located, and Lovers Beach, which is about an hour drive north from the house and located on the Atlantic side, meaning big waves! The Friday night fish fry was fun, but make sure you go after 9:30pm or you’ll be ready to leave right when things are just getting going. And when they say fish fry, they mean a whole fish is fried, not the more traditional fish and chips us Americans are used to, although it was still good. They also have chicken cooked on the BBQ, which was very tasty. If you’re looking for a nice sit-down dinner, you have to hit up 1648 Bar & Grill. We went nuts and ordered five apps and two entrees. Let’s just say we had leftovers, but man was it good! The best for last was our boating trip with Captain Bubba and his wife Robin at Fishbone Tours. They were nothing short of amazing! We dove for conch and cleaned/cooked them, along wit

Pristine, Peaceful Amori

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I spent a blissful week in the picture-perfect Amori cottage right smack on Ten Bay Beach in February. We came in from Miami, so flew into Northern Eleuthera (the "big" airport) where our rental car was waiting for us and drove the length of the island (2/3 actually) to arrive in late afternoon. If we were to fly from Boston we might do what my local experts suggest: fly to Nassau, kick back, eat and shop organic vegetables at the guy who started Island Farm (more on that in a minute) and puddle jump on the small airlines (Pineapple, Silver) to Governor's Harbor Airport. But as first timers to Eleuthera, we loved driving down the island.

We followed Ama and Al's superb directions to the home of Ann Bethel, who manages the property with her husband Clyde. They are AMAZING, helpful, kind and hooked-in hosts.. know every inch of the island, and how to get the cable-guy there (there was a lot of wind for a few days so cable fritzed out-- right in the middle of the super bowl game-- oh well!) plus they run Island Farm which has incredible vegetables, fruits, jams, and chutneys and fresh bread two mornings a week. Two miles door to door from Amori. Primo location, as repeat visitors to Eleuthera will appreciate. Ann said we might want to get in line early for the Tuesday bread, and she was right. We did, and when the gates opened at 9:00 there was a scrum of folks diving for the still warm sweet rolls, and gorgeous multi-grain loaves.

More about why Amori is the perfect location. Ten Bay Beach. Wow. So gorgeous and maybe 50 feet from the door. Perfect for strolling, beachcombing, swimming, fishing if that's your thing, kayaking. Morning, noon, evening, night.. All right there, all the time. We had windy whipped up waves and flat clear as glass and other weathers in between during our week. The water temperature was divine and the views were never anything but spectacular. There is a discreet public access to Ten Bay Beach near the cottage, so during the day there were other folks enjoying the lovely beach, but never too many. Just nice. When we met people and showed them OUR cottage, they were-- without fail-- green with envy. Yes, it's perfect! Inside, Amori is clean, cool, light, airy, well-appointed for the modern visitor. Big TV, super-comfy bed, fans, coffee-maker, wi-fi, etc. Everything is new and functional.. incredibly comfortable quarters in every way! Amori is the best. A gem.

Perfect vacation

  • 5 of 5

This is the perfect place to stay if you need to get away from it all. The property is exactly like you see in the photos, perhaps even better. I stayed for two weeks in February/March 2015. One week with my mom and one alone. My mom slept on the sofa bed in the living room and swears the bed was as comfortable as mine in the master bedroom. The views are simply magical and we loved our sunset ritual of "catch and release" sand dollars and starfish. This was the most relaxing vacation I've had in years. My mom is taking her husband back this year for his 60th birthday as she couldn't help but want to share this magical experience. We will all be returning. LOVED IT!

Secluded Perfection

  • 5 of 5

Husband and I had the best, most romantic two weeks at Amori House. This little bungalow is all you need and located right on the best, quietest beach/cove in Eleuthera. We wasted a lot of time driving to explore other beaches only to come straight back to our perfect spot. Pros: Ten Bay Beach has the most stunning, crystal clear, turquoise water in Eleuthera; included kayaks and snorkel gear were the best; absolute seclusion, saw about five people on Ten Bay our entire visit. Cons: House definitely has wear and tear on inside from travelers, not as pristine as photos listed, but close enough; could use newer pots/pans for kitchen. If beautiful beach and seclusion are your top two must haves, book with Amori House for your getaway!

Amazing

  • 5 of 5

My wife and I stayed at the Amori house for twelve days in May. I will start this review with the only negative we found regarding this property. That is you will never want to leave. This place and island are that nice. The house is located on one of the many beautiful beaches in Eleuthera. Most of the days we had the whole beach to ourselves. Our mornings were spent rescuing starfish and conchs as the tide went out. During the afternoons we kayaked around the bay. But our favorite thing to do was to float around the bay in their float chairs. Very relaxing. The sunsets over the ocean were second to none. The house is set of by itself. It is very comfortable and has every ting you need to make it your home. If you need to stay connected it has wireless and Direct TV. The AC worked great but we barely needed it and we live in the high mountains of Colorado. You will not truly understand how magnificant this house is until you have the pleasure of staying here on this peaceful island. When we did meet people on the beach they all commented how lucky we were to have found the Amori House. Thanks Ama.
