Overview

About the property

2 Bedrooms, 2 Baths, Sleeps 6

"Serenity" Buttonwood Reserve 1B includes a full-surround two-ocean view, facing west over the Caribbean for the sunset and east to the Atlantic for the sunrise. Enjoy stunning ocean views from every room through eight-foot glass sliders and six-foot bay windows. The expansive private decks also feature spectacular sea views in every direction.

Buttonwood Reserve has access to two beaches. On the Atlantic side is a world-class, 3-mile-long pink-sand beach, pristine without a single house. It is accessed via our private, golf-carts only driveway. The condominium comes with a golf cart. On the Caribbean side of our property, almost in your front yard, is a second beach. This beach is small and rather rocky, so not so aesthetic, but the water is as calm as a lake and this shore is perfect for snorkeling, kayaking, paddle boarding, and fishing.

Our resort-style pool is just steps from your condominium. This beautiful landscaped pool is heated for comfortable swimming year round.

The professionally decorated interior of this vacation rental is elegantly furnished, modern, warm and comfortable. 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 is features a large upholstered window seat with magnificent panoramic views of the Caribbean, a perfect spot to relax with a book or morning coffee, or watch the sunset over the sea. 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 deck over the Caribbean.

The guest bedroom also features a large window seat with a spectacular view, this one overlooking the Atlantic. The bedroom has a full en-suite bath (which can be accessed from the hall as well). It is furnished with twin beds that can be converted into a king.

Buttonwood Reserve comes with kayaks and a paddle board for use on the sea or in our pond. 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.

Just a mile from Buttonwood Reserve is the village of James Cistern, which has two grocery stores, 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 Club, Tippy’s (international and fusion), 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).

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.

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!

Pretty condo, beautiful island

  • 5 of 5

The condo is new, clean and decorated nicely. It is well stocked with all the beach supplies you could need. The kitchen is also well stocked. My kids loved golf cart rides to the beach, taking the kayaks out, and exploring the beautiful beaches of Eleuthera. It was also nice to have access to a pool at the end of each day. We have loved our stay at Buttonwood!

Really Nice Place

  • 5 of 5

We just stayed at one of the villas at Buttonwood Reserve and highly recommend to anyone coming to Eleuthera seeking a new and very clean place to hang their hat, enjoy stunning water views, spend time on a gorgeous private beach with (we suppose depending on your time there) no one on it, swim in a heated pool, etc.

The location is great for trips to Governor's Harbour and Palmetto Point, very close by James Cistern settlement with a great little grocery store/liquor store and a beach bar called Leo Rose's, also Rainbow Bay with beach and inn just 10 minutes up the road. Buttonwood Reserve is a hidden gem in our minds and we can't say enough about the amenities and excellent concierge service that comes with a stay here. The people were great.

Great location for exploring Eleuthera

  • 5 of 5

Buttonwood Reserve is a wonderful property for exploring the island of Eleuthera. A central location to a variety of beautiful beaches. After a long day exploring, it was nice to come back to a luxurious condo. Special thanks to the owner and staff for all the advice on activities and car rental options. The condo was well stocked with everything we needed. We appreciated having a dishwasher and washer/dryer in the condo. No one likes to clean dishes or do laundry while on vacation; but these conveniences made things easier. WiFi signal was great! But even better were the amazing views we had each morning and evening of the ocean from the back patio. Thank you! Can't wait to come back.

Fantastic!

  • 5 of 5

First time in Eleuthera and we think we have found paradise at Buttonwood Reserve. Beautiful, modern condos and two oceans to choose from - one walking distance and the other 5 minutes away in a complimentary golf buggy. We spent two weeks there (2 adults and 2 kids age 19, 14) and visited most of the beaches in the area. It is true what they say about Eleuthera as we were almost always the only ones on the beach. The Buttonwood staff are very friendly and attentive - Tia was there to greet us and Patrick kept the garden looking wonderful throughout our stay.

A 4x4 is essential if you want to access Twin Cove beach (great snorkelling spot) and Surfers Beach (good for boogie boarding). If you fancy a change from the beaches then just jump in the heated pool at Buttonwood.

We bought some Red Snapper from the local fishermen (which they kindly filleted for us) in James Cistern (local town) and fried them in garlic, lime and onions which was as tasty as it sounds!

In summary, great memories (particularly the sunsets from the condo decking) and I would recommend Buttonwood Reserve to anyone who justs wants to get away from it all.
