Overview

About the property

8 Bedrooms, 8 Baths, Sleeps 24

Building 1 (comprised of 4 units and 8 bedrooms) at Buttonwood Reserve offers families, friends or a wedding party the luxury, privacy and amenities for a perfect vacation.

This extraordinary new property is located on a ridge 45 feet above the Caribbean. The views of both oceans are truly breathtaking. From your large windows and extensive decks, you can watch the sun rise over the Atlantic and set over the Caribbean. Both views are vast and spectacular.

Buttonwood Reserve has access to two beaches. On the Atlantic side, Buttonwood has a world-class, 3-mile-long pink-sand beach, pristine, without a single house on it. This Atlantic side beach is accessed via our private, golf-carts only driveway. The condominium comes with a fleet of golf carts. This miles-long beach is virtually private for us, because the only other access is a rough and little used jeep track half a mile to the south. On the Caribbean side of our property, almost in your front yard, is a second beach, which has excellent snorkeling, kayaking, paddle boarding, and fishing. This beach is small and rather rocky, so not so aesthetic, but it’s as calm as a lake most of the time and perfect for the above activities.

If you’re not in the mood for a swim in the ocean on one of our two beaches, slip into our new resort-style pool, just steps from your condominium. This beautiful landscaped pool is heated for comfortable swimming year round.

Buttonwood Reserve consists of four 2-bedroom, 2-bath condos, each will a full kitchen. Each condo features a large great room with an 8-foot sliding glass door with spectacular Caribbean views. The slider opens onto a large deck furnished for lounging or dining while watching the sun set over the Caribbean. This spacious deck extends around the corner of the building for views in every direction. Enjoy a meal or a beverage on the deck, or watch the dolphins frolic in the Caribbean. The great room includes a living area with flat-screen satellite TV and a dining area with dining room seating for six. The east end of the great room features a modern, open-plan, luxurious kitchen finished in stainless steel and black granite. The kitchen, dining area, and living room have magnificent ocean views in every direction, with water sparkling as far as the eye can see.

The master bedroom of each suite features a large upholstered window seat with panoramic views of the Caribbean, a perfect spot to relax with a book or a morning coffee. The master is furnished with a king bed and equipped with an en-suite full bath. The master has a private door leading to the west deck over the Caribbean.

The guest bedroom of each suite also features a large window seat. The guest bedrooms of the upper two suites enjoy spectacular Atlantic Ocean views. The guest bedroom has a full en-suite bath (which can be accessed from the hall as well). The guest bedroom is furnished with twin beds that can be converted into a king. The guest bedroom has a private door to the east deck of the house, which overlooks the Atlantic. The east deck also extends around the corner of the building for views in every direction.

Situated on 50 lush acres, Buttonwood Reserve extends from the Caribbean Sea on the west to the Atlantic Ocean on the east. Buttonwood’s spectacular three-mile Atlantic beach is pristine, without a single house on it. The only structures are thatched palapas we built on the dune for shade. Enjoy long walks, swimming, and body surfing on this beautiful beach. On windy days there will be waves. On calm days, when the ocean can be as flat as a lake, there is excellent snorkeling, including on a shipwreck close to shore.

Buttonwood Reserve comes with kayaks for use on the sea or in our pond. Buttonwood’s half-mile-long pond is a great spot for bird-watching or exploring.

Bicycles are also provided for riding around the property or to town, less than a mile away.

Our groundskeeper, Patrick, is an expert fisherman and will take you out fishing in his boat for a half day or full day (extra charges apply.) Grill your catch fresh on our infrared outdoor grill.

Buttonwood Reserve is an easy 15-minute drive from Governor’s Harbour, the main town on the island. Governor’s Harbour has a charming collection of 19th century homes and churches overlooking its historic harbor. Buy fresh fish and lobster every afternoon from the fisherman at the town dock. Visit the Haynes Library, which dates from 1897. Governor’s Harbour has grocery stores, restaurants, liquor stores, two banks with ATMs, a bakery, gift shops, and a medical clinic. The Friday night Anchor Bay Fish Fry in Governor’s Harbour, a combination street/beach party that brings together all the tourists and locals with food, drink and dancing in the street, is not to be missed.

Just a mile from Buttonwood Reserve is the village of James Cistern, which has two grocery stores (JC Discount and East and Final), a town dock where the fisherman bring their catch every day, a produce stand, and three small local restaurants, Kel-D’s, Lee’s Café, and the new Leorose Sunset Beach Bar and Grill. James Cistern is also the home of Stubb’s famous barbecue, now called Tamarind Tree Grill, every Friday and Saturday, which is not to be missed.

Other restaurants in the area include Pascal’s at boutique luxury resort Sky Beach Cub, which offers an excellent beachfront restaurant, beach bar and infinity pool with swim up cocktail bar and poolside service all day long. Other restaurants in the area include Tippy’s (international and fusion), The Beach House (tapas), 1648 Bar & Grille at French Leave (fine dining for lunch and dinner), The Rainbow Inn (steaks and Monday night brick oven pizza night) and Da Perk Café (café and sandwich shop). Most have live music one or more nights a week.

Eleuthera is most famous for its 100 miles of spectacular, deserted beaches. The island, home to just 8000 residents, is safe and friendly. 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 and bikes. 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 Buttonwood Reserve and experience all that Governor’s Harbour and Eleuthera have to offer.

Guestbook comments from the manager

We had the most amazing stay at Buttonwood. We came down to ELeuthra a group of ladies celebrating our 40th birthdays. We stayed in Sapodilly and Kool Jumbey. Both condos were beautifully decorated, well equipped and very comfortable. The decor was beautiful and tastefully picked out.The views were exquisite and therapeutic. We loved the entire property. The use of golf carts, kayaks, and beach equipment took the experience over the top. We made use of the Atlantic beach, the pool and loved kayaking down to Leo's on the Caribbean side. We bone fished with guide Paul Petty , boogy boarded on the Atlantic visited with the warm locals at the town Fish Fry and made many excursions to visit beaches and towns. We lived our day trip to Harbour Town and the pink sand beaches.The convenience of location was perfect to jump around. Fresh conch was prepared at the docks in James Cistern. And we loved going to the coffee shop Da Perk. Couldn't be more impressed with the hospitality we received from your staff Tia and Patrick were so very accommodating and locals on the island were cheerful and welcoming. We did have a power outage, and some inclement weather and our entire party got a virus we generously passed on to one another. But that did not stop us from having a trip of a lifetime. Thank you to you and the staff for making a most memorable vacation for all of us. Cannot wait to come back! We loved visiting beaches Cocoadimana and Gaulding Cay. We tried to cliff jump but the Carribean was rough. Loved the Glass Window Bridge and Govenors Habour was charming. Everything we need was provided for. Sunshine, surf, fresh air And seafood. It was a perfect trip!

Great for a large group

  • 5 of 5

My colleagues and I rented an entire building on the Buttonwood property for our annual work retreat (4 units for 10 people). Here's what they had to say about our experience there.

"We had a large group that rented multiple units at the Buttonwood Reserve. We found the accommodations to be more than acceptable, the house has a convenient location on the island and offers wonderful privacy and easy access to the beach. It was recommended that we purchase bottled water for drinking which was a bit of a hassle and added expense but overall it wouldn't deter me from recommending this place for your stay."

"The layout of the house is perfect for a large group. We watched the most beautiful sunsets over a glassy Caribbean from the 2nd story porch. Loved it!"

"Beautiful location, grounds, interior layout, design and furnishings, pretty much everything we needed and then some. Several quirks/issues, like the unlabeled soap packets (led to dishwasher overflow), A/C fail in one bedroom, some interior/exterior doors that wouldn't latch and/or lock."

"- Great location

- New, comfortable, clean, well-equipped

- Beautiful views

- Helpful staff

- Snorkeling right off the property is not the greatest - shallow and sandy on the Caribbean side, rough water and far out on the Atlantic side"

"Buttonwood was a perfect place for our annual company retreat. The rooms were well equipped, clean, comfortable and perfectly accommodated our large group. Easy access to the water and other fun things to do was also a huge plus."

I would agree with all of the sentiments expressed above. I also appreciated the unobtrusive check-ins that Buttonwood sent via email. I always felt that if we needed something, we could reach out. One additional thing to note is that power failures seem to be common; the "PF" sign was blinking on the stoves when we first arrived, and there were a few outages during a storm on our last day. That's a risk you run when you come during hurricane season, though. Thanks again, Buttonwood!

Amazing Property!

  • 5 of 5

Beautiful place in Eleuthera, the buildings are on a hill so the views of the ocean are amazing. The condos have a nice layout, they are modern, clean, and the property is spotless. Loved the pool, the golf carts and star-gazing at night. The staff was very helpful and responsive, customer service was superb. Highly recommended!

Perfect Wedding and Vacation in Paradise

  • 5 of 5

We had a wonderful week long stay at Buttonwood Reserve in May 2015. The condos are beautiful and modern. They also worked perfectly for our large party, some of which had young children. The views are spectacular!

Matthew and Tia were wonderful and perfectly accommodating to all of our needs.

We got married at a nearby beach and had our reception at Buttonwood. It was the perfect venue. Tia arranged every detail and made it a day we will never forget.

Overall, we had a wonderful experience and will certainly be back in the future!

Breathtaking & Peaceful Buttonwood Reserve

  • 5 of 5

We had such a nice time at Buttonwood Reserve. The property was so breathtaking & peaceful. The condo units were very nice & the interior designs were really great. The staff was awesome. Tia was so accommodating to us. Brenda, the head housekeeper, is such a doll. They were very sweet, friendly & helpful. The grounds were perfect. The kids made good use of the pool & the adults used the kayaks. The golf carts were definitely helpful in getting around to the beach. We LOVED the Atlantic side with the shipwreck. The kids were in awe of the waves crashing on them. The sunrises & sunsets were incomparable. Buttonwood Reserve was just a perfect getaway!

Wow!

  • 5 of 5

I was traveling with my 3 daughters and their reaction on arrival captured it all, wow. The setting is fantastic and the property is as described. Our condo was on its first rental, so it had that new car feel to it. The support from initial enquiry and through the stay was great and all my silly questions were answered by Matt and Tara (Eleuthera Vacation Rentals).

We really enjoyed our Atlantic beach and the fantastic views from the property. Kayaks provided too were great fun.

Amazing views with every modern amenity

The units were so lovely, modern and comfortable. Having the golf carts made it fun to get around from the Carribean to the Atlantic. A wonderful family trip!
