.. or as our kids said.. "do we have to go home?" We had an incredible and relaxing family vacation at Helios House. Centrally located this absolutely stunning estate was the perfect base to explore Eleuthera. Close enough but not too close to shopping and some really nice restaurants. Eleuthera has many nice beaches but we constantly found ourselves retreating back to "our own" beach in the afternoons. We literally had the most incredible beach in front of the house completely to ourselves every day. Kids loved the pool which got a lot of use and with a view like that it was easy for dad and mom to play lifeguard. Thanks for a wonderful vacation!
Helios House fit our family of fourteen in the three units very comfortably over Christmas and New Years. The living room dining, entertainment area and kitchen were very spacious. All the outside sitting and lounging areas were great for large get together and yet enough private areas to be alone and read. The Infinity pool and patio was extraordinary in size and views of the Atlantic. The grounds bushes and trees were well laid out and the swaying mature Palms were mesmerizing on the eyes. The pink sand beach went on forever and looked like we owned it all. No one else around. The owner and property manager were very friendly and accommodating to all our requests. We dove down in Rock Sound area and it was great. Tippys bar and restaurant was real close (order fresh grouper and Lobster tails were huge). Cracked Conch at Buccaneers Club was super tender. Banks Deli had great baguettes and cheese and pate. The Cafe Market on Banks Road was a good deli too. "Gourmet Pizza in the Islands is not NY Pizza so we made our own in the Helio House outside Pizza Oven (bring water from Brooklyn). We will be back.
We were looking for a quiet, clean and warm location for a family member's birthday and the Helios House turned out to be the perfect location. The owner had thought out all the details for a relaxing stay including music, games, movies, table tennis, beach furniture...etc. The swimming pool was beautiful and the beach was relaxing and empty. The night sky was filled with stars. There was an option to have a cook but we chose to cook on our own. A few recommendations: fly into Govenor's Harbor, research the grocery stores/farmer's market if you plan on cooking on your own and have an idea how to get to the home from the airport.
The house was better than we thought, Niki the housekeeper was great, and the house itself was clean and had a great location. The entire property including the pool, beach, and surrounding area, was 100% private!! The beach out front was probably the best on the island, from the few that we saw. Had the best week ever! I just can't say enough about this place.
Helios House is not only just off the best road, Banks Road, in Eleuthera, it's on the most perfect, pink sand stretch of beach. The house grounds are beautiful - old growth palms and grass and gardens. The house is classic - wide open and breezy, with tons of space in the main house and 'tower house'. All mod cons including Apple TV in every round and a wicked Sonos sound system. Beautiful and big pool for the kids and great outdoor pizza oven/BBQ. Best of all are the staff, including Angela, who is so welcoming and warm - best Gnocchi anywhere! Great swimming and snorkling right off the beach. Really can't say enough how fantastic this place is #paradise
The Helios House is a beautiful tranquil retreat. Upon arrival, I was in awe, the property is magnificent. We were greeted by Angela, the Chef, who gave us the grand tour, she is great! Angela cooked for us numerous times...her food in incredible! She also shopped for us before our arrival, Angela is a wonderful asset to the Helios house!!!! The home is very well taken care of, it is clean, comfortable, warm and inviting. It offers every thing we could have asked for, from every kitchen gadgets to towels to beach chairs. The kitchen is large enough for 12 to sit and enjoy meals, there are plenty of dishes, utensils and glasses, we also took advantage of the outdoor pizza oven. We used 6 of the 7 bedrooms which are spacious and over-the-top comfortable, the bedding is to die for! The bathrooms are well done no need for blow dryers they are provided as well! There are plenty of high quality bath towels too. The Tower and cottage are as well stocked as the main home. This beautiful home has a 180 degree view of the Atlantic Ocean, you are just steps away from the soft powder sands of the enormous beach. The pool area is perfect with a great lounging space, perfect for eating, relaxing and reading, there are many patio and seating areas to choose from. The pool itself is incredible.... relax, float and enjoy the view of the mighty Atlantic.
The Atlantic Coast between Governor's Harbour and North Palmetto Point is often referred to as the Gold Coast of Eleuthera, with its extraordinary, endless pink sand beaches.
