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....'

Total Relaxation

  • 5 of 5

This is the place if you want to relax. Very private on the calm Caribbean side, the beach is sandy, about 1,200 meters long and you can walk out several hundred meters. Walked the beach every morning for a week and only saw one person, most days only 5-10 people used the beach and were always gone before sunset. Amori House was just as pictured, owner/local property manager were very helpful with all questions, to include car rental. Well equipped with kayaks, floating chairs (awesome), lots of snorkeling gear, chaise lounges for the beach, nice satellite TV, wireless internet, AC, fans, nice kitchen, washer/dryer and covered deck looking out over Ten Bay beach. We visited a few beaches on the Atlantic side (French Leave-old Club Med was best), all were practically deserted, but always came back to Ten Bay. We had breakfast/lunch at the house and ate out for dinner every night. There are several nice restaurants within 10-15 miles (1648, Sunset Grill, Wild Orchid and the Rainbow Inn were the best). Check to confirm hours. There are a few local grocery stores that just have the basics, if you prefer certain cereals, chips, etc., bring them along. Plenty of alcohol/beer stores in the area. Being secluded, nothing is within reasonable walking distance, highly recommend getting a rental car. If you want privacy on a beautiful beach, this is the place.

Impossible not to be happy and unwind!!!!!

  • 5 of 5

Holiday perfection!!! Amori House is right on Ten Bay where we snorkelled the rocky edges, floated every night in our floaty chairs to catch the sunset, and wandered up and down searching for tiny ocean treasures. This place is so peaceful it's impossible not to unwind.

The home itself is super clean and very comfy. The furnishings are new and the kitchen is well stocked with basics to get you going. There's lots of out door furniture for relaxing; kayaks; and beach toys.

Just down the road is Island Farms where you can get homemade sauces and fresh veggies everyday. Well, not on Sunday! Not to be missed are bread days on Tuesday and Friday. Get there early before the homebaking is all gone!!

We had the most marvellous vacation thanks to Anne who looked after us and the home on the island and homeowner Ama who helped us out with a last minute booking. Both these ladies are amazing!

Would I return? Yup. Should you stay here? YES!

Paradise on your own private beach!! Unspoiled Perfection!

  • 5 of 5

First off, our stay was in December 2014 - and sorry did not review sooner. Amori House was our first VRBO experience and first stay in Eleuthera - and both were excellent introductions. Amori house was immaculately clean and ideally located. Basically you had your own private beach. You were disappointed (lol) when you had to share it with a handful of day visitors - seriously we never saw more than 5 total people on the beach.

As a family of three (parents and teenage son) the cottage worked very well. We (the parents) actually slept on the pull out sofa - it was by far the most comfortable sofa bed we have ever experienced. The living area is open and large with a beautiful kitchen and all the needed amenities (though a BBQ grill would have been nice .) But the real attraction here is the location and beach. The house is quite secluded with a fun drive in off the main road - on what we believed was the best beach (Ten Bay) on the entire island! Not being prejudiced by the location - the beach was ideal. Great swimming, warm calm waters and actually excellent snorkeling around the northern edge. Simply paradise! We visited more than a dozen other beaches on the island - all unique and beautiful with their own attractions but in the end believed ours was the overall best.

Eleuthera is amazing. We went basically everywhere - beaches, glass window bridge, Governors Harbor, Ocean and Bay side, even experienced Junkanoo in Gregory Town!

Great dinner at Tippy's and great lunch in Rock Sound but the Cinnamon Rolls and other items at Island Farms bakery were the best.

A quick shout out to Stanton Cooper and his rental car empire - great guy and though we had initial doubts about our car- we had no problems and grew to trust our white Cherokee chariot to take us anywhere. The rental car made the trip and allowed us explore.

A trip down to Lighthouse Beach and exploring around is definitely worth the time (though it is a long trip) - just try and avoid arriving when the Cruise Ship invades the south end. Not too bad as most stay confined in a little "Cruise Ship Compound" but a dozen or so did venture out - and on Eleuthera that is a crowd (LOL).

Bottom line, we fell in love with Eleuthera and cannot wait to get back. Amori house was perfect and we would definitely stay here again. We loved the remote and unspoiled nature of Eleuthera and the friendly adventurous - off the beaten path nature of the island. Highly Recommend!

Went Back a Second Time

  • 5 of 5

When travelers return to the same house, on the same beach, on the same island, when so many other choices are available, it should mean something unique. We returned to Amori House on Ten Bay a year or so after our first trip there....(October 2013) It was as incredible, beautiful and peaceful as the first time we were there and still nobody else on the large caribbean beach but us. Amori will forever be a most special place to me.

As perfect as was expected

We just have left the Amori House after a 10 night stay. Property is perfect. Beach is amazing. Everyone we encountered in Eleuthera were warm and inviting. Would definitely recommend and will be back (sooner than later!)

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
