Eleuthera is famous for its 100 miles of spectacular, deserted beaches. The island, home to just 8000 residents, is completely safe any time of the day or night. Enjoy the rare experience of picking up hitch-hikers and leaving your keys in the car wherever you go. The snorkeling, diving, and fishing on the island are world class. Boating, surfing, and other water sports are also popular. You can rent power boats, sailboats, sea kayaks, bikes. You can have a charter captain take you out for excursions of various types. There is excellent sightseeing as well. Eleuthera has vast caves, cliffs, a bottomless ocean hole, many unique beaches, historic churches and 19th century homes, and small villages to explore. We hope you will enjoy Bella Luna, and experience all our island has to offer.

Absolutely loved everything about Bella Luna. Only a couple km from Govenors Harbour. Within a few km of the most beautiful beaches I've ever seen. Or you can just relax under the thatched hut at the beach and enjoy being at Bella Luna relaxing.

The house has everything you need, and lots of little extras.

We were a party of 3 and would highly recommend for all ages.

Great Get A Way!

  • 5 of 5

Eleuthera has always been on my list of places to get to and my wife and I had a great week of exploring the beautiful beaches and doing a little bone fishing. Bella Luna was the perfect spot for us, secluded, on the beach, but close to the town for good restaurants and close to the Atlantic side beaches that were great. Highly recommend Light House Beach and the beach very close by at Tippy's Restaurant which has the best snorkeling. The kayaks are a lot of fun to paddle around the island and to paddle down to the point where I found willing bonefish. The owners were very helpful but respected our space. The house is furnished with absolutely everything you need. The no see um's are there but not really a problem at all, just put on pants and long sleeves in the early morning and at dusk other wise no bites all day. Down toward the point and in the sand that is wadeable you can find a million sand dollars, once you see their tracks under the water in the sand you will find the sand dollars but be careful and put them back, there are alive and very happy.... and watch your step so you don't crunch em.

Private and well maintained

  • 5 of 5

Fantastic property, in a beautiful Central location. We really enjoyed having use of the kayaks and had some great fishing right in front on the villa. The owners were very helpful if we needed anything but also left us well alone so we could enjoy the private feel to the villa. I'll certainly be checking it's availability if we visit again.

Wonderful vacation!

  • 4 of 5

We had a great stay over the holidays at this home. The owners were very responsive to any issues we had and have maintained the home very well. The kitchen is well equipped and the house is very clean. The water is perfect. It's a very short drive to the Atlantic side of the island if you want a longer beach for walking or running. The grocery store is close by but I urge you to bring as much as you can down with you as groceries are very expensive. Govenor's Harbour bakery is good and the fish fry on Fridays is fun.
