The living area features wide plank reclaimed hardwood floors and is surrounded by windows and sliding doors opening up onto the deck that runs the entire length of both buildings. The ocean can be seen from every window and every position within the room. Relax on the incredibly comfortable Philippe Starck designed sofa after a hard day of beachcombing and water activities. Watch a movie on the 50 inch flat screen TV from one of the many blu ray DVD’s available or enjoy a good book from our selection while listening to an eclectic array of world music from the IPod stereo. Sip a perfectly temperatured glass of wine from the wine cooler while viewing the hypnotic waves rolling in through the all glass sliding doors or walls of windows or venture outside onto the large deck just off the living area. The hide carpet enhances your comfort giving warmth to the room, while the Moroccan lights add to the exotic feel.

The gourmet kitchen is perfectly set up for all your culinary desires. The all stainless steel appliances are of the highest quality offerings by Jenn Air and Bosch.

Lay in the king size bed on Scandia Down pillows and 700 thread count sateen sheets and watch cruise ships pass by at night and wake up to amazing views of the multi blue hued ocean as the waves gently roll in toward Twin Cove Beach.

great home with a perfect location

  • 5 of 5

This was our fourth vacation to the beautiful island of Eleuthera with our daughter, son-in-law and two young grandsons. Our first two trips were to a wonderful home 20 minutes south of Governor's Harbour and while we loved the house nothing was convenient which meant more time in a car each day than we wanted. Bleu Sky is perfectly located on a quiet, if not very bumpy road just a few minutes from Governor's Harbour with grocery stores, Da Perk cafe and the quaint harbour itself. Additionally, we could walk to beautiful Twin Cove Beach which everyone loved.

The house itself had views of the Atlantic so sitting on the deck having coffee and reading each morning was a treat.

The house is bright and airy. We loved the split buildings connected by decks. The living area was separated from the 3 bedrooms which meant privacy for those sleeping while allowing others to watch a good movie without disturbing anyone.

While the lower deck facing east was our morning sunrise deck, the upper deck became our spot for drinks and sunset watching in the afternoon.

Least I not forget to mention the owners, Kelly and Jonathan. They were helpful from the beginning and truly cared about making our vacation the best. And, the caretakers, Scott and Erika went out of our way to ensure that we had everything we needed. The washing machine was broken down. With two young children a washing machine is important. Erika did a laundry midweek for us, even ironing the kids clothes! In fact, my daughter actually enjoyed the luxury of someone else doing the laundry!

Bleu Sky is a great home away from home in a great and lovely location on the beautiful island of Eleuthera.

If you're hesitating - don't!

  • 5 of 5

As a regular VRBO renter, I find the experience with the owners sets the tone for the entire time spent at their property. You can't get any better than Jon and Kelly Leu. Simply put, they know the true meaning of hospitality. Aided and abetted by a lovely house (pictures don't lie), with an amazing view, on a beautiful and friendly island, with sweethearts for caretakers and all the quirky and cool characters that inhabit Eleuthera, they still seem to go a step above.

Not much I can add except to say to folks that have not been to Eleuthera before...

Research. Read the lengthy and detailed info Jon and Kelly give you and take their recommendations. Bring your bug spray, sunscreen and swimsuit and you're pretty much all set.

This is not a fancy island, with sophisticated resorts, but it is filled with very friendly folks, unbelievably gorgeous and deserted beaches, and excellent restaurants.

Thanks again Jon and Kelly!

A magical vacation home, and Kelly and Jon go the extra mile.

  • 5 of 5

If you're looking to decompress, there's no better place than Eleuthera - and no better place to say on the island than Bleu Sky Villa. The house itself is a delight: cozy but spacious, homey but serene, a great place to stay in and relax but ideally located for exploring Eleuthera.

We enjoyed all the house had to offer: spectacular sunrise views; ocean breezes coming in through the bay windows; sunning and grilling on the deck and cooking in the kitchen; super soft and comfortable bedding; spacious, soothing bathrooms; modern, powerful ceiling fans and A/C units for those occasionally hot or humid moments; an awesome nighttime living room couch and Moroccan light combo that was perfect for reading, watching movies and snuggling; checking in on mainland news and happenings through the satellite TV and internet-connected iPad; a nice collection of books and Blu-Ray discs; stargazing and spotting cruise ships on the Atlantic at night from the upper deck; and so much more.

Of course, nobody comes to Eleuthera just to hang out at a house, no matter how comfortable and inviting it is. Luckily, Blue Sky Villa is perfectly situated - it's very short drive from the market, library, restaurants and other attractions and necessities in Governor's Harbor; a slightly longer, but every easy drive to a number of beautiful beaches and resorts on both sides of the island; and best of all, a short, enjoyable walk away from Twin Cove Beach, which is just maybe the best place on Earth, a gorgeous and secluded spot you will almost certainly fall in love with. The house is equipped with lots of beach towels and chairs, so you're covered there, too.

Topping things off, Kelly and Jon are friendly, caring and attentive hosts. They are happy to offer advice and recommendations about making the most of Eleuthera; and basically the sort of people who love the island and their home there, and want to share that love with you. In our case, they really went the extra mile: we were stuck on Eleuthera for a few extra days due to the East Coast Blizzard of 2016, and Kelly and Jon allowed us to stay a few extra days at the Villa.

Overall, we couldn't ask for anything more. And we definitely plan to return in the future. Highest recommendation!

Fantastic Home

  • 5 of 5

What a lovely home! This home boasted everything we could have possibly asked for and more. Jon and Kelly were absolutely fantastic in helping our stay in Eleuthera be the best that it could be... and it was magnificent! This home served as a perfect home base for us, due to its central location. We were able to go all the way down to the cape one day and then all the way up to Harbour Island another day. I would recommend this home to anyone who is looking for an homey and elegant place to stay in Eleuthera. Many thanks, Jon and Kelly!

Bleu Sky Villa - Eleuthera - Bahamas

  • 5 of 5

Part of our family stayed at this wonderful home for our daughter's wedding - it is magical - one of the best beaches on the entire island - the decor is lovely, plus it's private - something not often found - Jon & Kelly

are a fabulous couple, unbelievable helpful in every sense of the word. You will not do better!

We also loved the upper patio, which we referred to as the "Planetarium Patio", as my husband and I love

to stargaze. Less bugs over here, with beautiful oceanic breezes - thank you for an amazing time!
