North Eleuthera Estate Rental Photos and Description

16 Bedrooms, 16 Baths, Sleeps 48

Reunions with family and friends. A wedding or birthday celebration. There are many reasons to rent the full compound (comprised of 2 buildings that include 16 bedrooms, 16 baths and sleeps 48) at Buttonwood Reserve, which is near to Governor's Harbour in Eleuthera, Bahamas.

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 with sparkling sea as far as the eye can see up and down the coast.

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.

Buildings 1 and 2 at Buttonwood Reserve consist of eight 2-bedroom, 2-bath condos with full kitchens. 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 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.

The master bedroom of each condo 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 condo 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 the thatched palapas built on the dune and beach 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.

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.

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

Other restaurants in the area include Pascal’s at boutique luxury resort Sky Beach Club, 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 famous for being safe. Enjoy the rare experience of picking up hitch-hikers and leaving your keys in the car wherever you go. 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, bikes. You can have a charter captain take you out for excursions of various types. 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 our island has 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!

Fabulous place for a family gathering!

  • 5 of 5

My family of 22 people rented 5 units at Buttonwood Reserve for a week. We loved it. It was clean, comfortable and very well maintained. Patrick and Brenda, the grounds keepers, were around every morning. They are some of the nicest people I have ever met and had wonderful advice about the island to offer. Matthew the property manager was always easy to contact and had answers to any questions we had.

This is a beautiful resort. We basically had the property to ourselves. Our family ranges in age from 2 years old to 66. We were able to cook most of our meals in the condos. We had brought a lot of food with us because we had planned to do this. The kitchens were very nice and we had everything we needed to prepare meals.

The pool is perfect in size and well maintained.

The beach on the Caribbean side was not so great for our family's needs but a short ride on a provided golf cart took us to the beautiful, practically private beach on the Atlantic side of the island. Each unit has it's own golf cart. We used them every day. We enjoyed the huts on the Atlantic beach for shade, the provided beach chairs, boogie boards and umbrellas everyday.

Morning coffee on the deck overlooking the waters of both oceans and amazing stars to view at night were just a few of the many things we enjoyed. The teenagers enjoyed the provided kayaks on the Caribbean side but we spent most of our time on the Atlantic. We made a couple of trips to Cocodimama Beach which was very close by. Amazing, perfect place for everyone, even the 2 year old babies could walk way out and paddle around in their swim jackets.

I really can't say enough about this property. It was the perfect place for our family gathering. Above all we felt safe and the people of Eleuthera are so nice. This is not a place to go to if you want to be around a lot of people and are looking for a lot of activity. It is a place to reconnect with family and enjoy nature. I highly recommend it.

I hope to return one day.

Quick referrals: Rolle's Auto Rental and Big Daddy's Auto Rental were both great to work with for our car rental needs. We had so much luggage that we had Big Daddy provide a "luggage vehicle" for us as well as van rental. Perfect solution. Service was excellent from both of these providers.

Groceries are quite expensive on the island but you can get what you need. There is a Discount Grocery and East and Final Grocery close by. Market Place is quite a drive but worth the trip

Amazing week in paradise

  • 5 of 5

Rented all 8 condo's in the compound for a week long family reunion. Each 2br, 2ba condo was in excellent shape, smartly decorated and new appliances. . The compound was also in great shape. Pool was perfect. Tia the property manager was in constant contact and on the spot with any requests or questions. Buttonwood is centrally located on the island, so convenient to all day trips. We discovered unbelievable beaches, went to clubs to swim and dine. Food on the island was unbelievable. Not a bad meal anywhere. Do your homework in advance and I highly recommend you listen to the advice the owners/ managers of the property, give you. They were never wrong.

Recommended day trips:

Harbour Island, French Leave Beach, Rainbow Beach, Surfers Beach. Tippy's for lunch or dinner on the ocean. Friday fish fry in Governors Harbor was a fun night and very good food!
