Million dollar view

  • 5 of 5

We absolutely loved this house! When we first walked in and saw the view we were in love. However, our appreciation continued to grow as we stayed there. The kitchen, living room and bedrooms were wonderful. The living room shares the same wonderful view as the deck. The deck is a wrap around and on one day the wind was whipping but we were able to lay out on a side that was protected from the wind. Additionally, the owners had spices and items in the kitchen that we could use that made cooking so much easier. I love coffee, and there were several types of coffee makers available. We will definitely stay here when we return to Eleuthera.

My husband and I and another couple recently stayed at Laguna. We absolutely loved the place and location. We fell in love with Eleuthera years ago! We are always last minute planning trips because of our work schedule and kids. Stephanie & Kevin made the booking process simple and easy and were both so kind to us. We felt blessed to be able to enjoy their beautiful home which was fully stocked with everything you can imagine that you would need. When we learned Phil & Kelly Bodie were the caretakers of the property we were elated! We met them a couple of years ago in Eleuthera . They are super kind and sweet people. Phil was great and the fact that he lives across the street is a plus...if there was anything that you ever needed its nice having him close by. Thanks again Stephanie & Kevin for sharing your amazing and beautiful home with us. We most definitely can't wait to get back SOON!!!

June in the Bahamas

  • 5 of 5

We know Eleuthera well, but have never stayed in Palmetto Point. We are now BIG fans; mostly bc of Laguna! Although the location is ideal bc you're right in the middle of the island, the house is perfect! We are a family of 5. We have three small children (6 years, 4 years and an infant); Laguna's set up was perfect for us. The house managers, Phil & Kelly, were so kind and dropped by on occasion to check on us. (And even brought us fresh mango which my 4 year devoured!) The Kitchen was stocked with all the basics a cook needs. The view of the ocean from morning til night was like no other- amazing! The infinity pool was awesome and we were in it daily. The house is close to our favorite beach, Ten Bay, where it feels like you can walk for miles in the beautiful shallow waters and find sand dollars by the masses. The farmers market just down the road had delicious options, and we enjoyed being close to Tippy's as the French Leave. Overall, Laguna couldn't have been better! I don't have one negative comment. It was an incredible week and we'll be back next summer!

Beautiful house and setting for perfect family getaway

  • 5 of 5

My family has vacationed and rented several vacation homes in Eleuthera and Harbour Island. Laguna is now one of our favorites. The house has a spectacular view of the Caribbean. My family (including 2 teenage sons) enjoyed many beautiful sunrises/sunsets while lying on the hammock or relaxing in/around the infinity pool. The house is well-maintained, nicely furnished and guests have access to 2 kayaks (for 4 people). The refrigerator was stocked with water, sodas and beers when we arrived which was a very nice touch. There was also an ample supply of sugar & spices, bug spray and sunscreen. It was very easy to contact the owners via email. Our favorite beach was nearby Next 2 Rocks on the Atlantic side.

Truly amazing island house

  • 5 of 5

We just left Eleuthera and Laguna three days ago, and we are already wishing we could return! Everything about the house and its owners was fantastic. The house, with its gorgeous views of the ocean from each and every room, was even more amazing in person than it seems in the photos. The layout, with the master at one of the house, and the other two bedrooms at the other, was great. The fully equipped kitchen was perfect for making breakfasts and lunches to enjoy out on the huge deck. We probably spent more time hanging out poolside on the deck than in the house! Our daughter spent endless hours on the huge hammock reading. Venturing out in the two provided kayaks was also wonderful - a quick 15 minute ride took us down to a nearby beach. The deck provides a breathtaking view of evening sunsets. Then when it was time to head out for island adventures, we were all set with Stephanie's fantastic info on the best beaches (and the house's Beach Book was awesome too), directions, plenty of beach towels, umbrellas, chairs - fabulous! Stephanie was also so helpful with suggestions for grocery stores, restaurants, sites not to be missed, even her favorite island gift shop. Gabby, the property manager, was also lovely when she stopped by our first afternoon to make sure we were all set and to provide helpful island tips.

A few of our family favorites while on the island - Tippy's and the Buccaneer for dinners nearby, Wild Orchid in Rock Sound for an incredible oceanfront lunch, the Friday night fish fry in Governors Harbour was a blast, French Leave and Ten Bay Beaches, both just 10 minute drives away. And we did a daytrip to adventure all the way down south to the three Lighthouse Beaches - a crazy, crazy drive down insane roads, but so very worth it once you reach the unbelievable beauty that you'll find. Another daytrip north to Glass Window Bridge, Queens Bath, and Ocean Hole were also wonderful. Stephanie's advice was spot on!

We truly hope to return to Eleuthera one day, and would love nothing more to spend our days there staying at Laguna.

Best 5* VRBO Ever!!!

  • 5 of 5

We had a wonderful 2 weeks at Laguna. Gorgeous views, salt water infinity pool, large deck with hammock, plenty of chairs & umbrellas. The kitchen is very large with all the utensils, pots & pans and spices you could ever need. The Master bedroom is on one end with a very comfortable bed and the 2 other bedrooms are on the opposite side of the home. Our second week was very windy but the house was very quiet. We did have some no-seeums but the cupboard is well stock with bug sprays & sunscreens in case you forget yours.

The house is centrally located (Carribean side) which made it easy to explore the island. It is over 100 miles long so it made exploring easy as we could be in the North or South in approx. 1 1/2 hrs. and very close to Governor's Harbor and the other towns close by. With such a beautiful home we never saw the need to drag chairs to the beach, don't get me wrong, we explored miles of beaches, the Lighthouse, the Cliffs, the Baths etc. but we always came back mid-afternoon to enjoy the peacefully setting of Laguna to relax and take an afternoon swim.

The owners are great to work with and offer lots of helpful information on the Island along with the popular "Beach Book" to use for all your adventures.

We brought some of our own meats along in a cooler and bought some local fish for grilling on the patio. We also like to try some of the local flare so we have a nice mix of both.

There is a brand new grocery store just a few minutes south of the house in Savannah Sound, Midway Cost Cutters, great store with a good selection of produce, clean & organized. Island Farms is also 5 minutes away. They grow vegetables, have jams & salsa's, etc. and have fresh bread & cinnamon rolls on Tuesday & Fridays. They open at 9:00 a.m. Don't be late or you have missed it!

There are lots of places to eat; fancy places and everything in between. We enjoyed 1648 for their Monday night burger special. Our favorite was the Front Porch. They have 6 tables on their porch so you should make reservations ahead. The menu is great and they also offer some of their own fresh catch of the day. We like to have a fancier meal for special occasions and we choose "The Cove" for that evening, also a spectacular meal & evening. Buccaneers was a good breakfast location, try the Coconut rum French Toast.

So much to explore, So go and make your own memories!
