"Sea La Vie" Buttonwood Reserve 2B 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.
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!
We thoroughly enjoyed our first trip to Eleuthera and our stay at Buttonwood. The condo had all the amenities we could ask for and was very well maintained. The location was great and allowed us to explore the entire island without being too far from home. Eleuthera is a beautiful island. We loved it and will definitely be back!!!
Perfect for us - close to everything - the units are fully equipped, with everything you need. Great for us because we like to cook our meals. My wife and I are trying to live a very healthy life style so have in house cooking is very important. I have to say that in all my travels I have never met a more helpful host them Matthew Simon !!
We had a great week at Buttonwood Reserve. We were 2 couples, lots of space for everyone. The grounds were beautiful and well maintained. The interior was new, spacious, and bright and had an awesome view of the ocean. Definitely would stay there again!
The property and accommodation was perfect for our family - my wife and I took our son and his fiancé as their engagement present and it was perfect. We toured the beautiful island, went snorkelling and generally just relaxed. The condo unit was good for us because of the two bedrooms and cooking facilities. The only negative was the units could use some additional comforts such as a kettle, more towels, face cloths, and towel roods or hooks. Bring " OFF " if you are out at dusk or dawn NoSeeUms !!! nasty little critters !!
Just stunning! This was our first trip to Eleuthera and we fell in love with this quaint island. It has true unspoiled beauty and is the perfect hidden gem! Buttonwood more than exceeded our expectations!
The condo was gorgeous, comfortable, and well appointed. Tia stocked our pantry items as requested and that was such a nice touch. We were two adults and two kids ages 11 and 5. They loved the pool, but every beach we went to was perfect!
The condo and garage were well stocked with kitchen equipment and beach gear. The golf cart was fun to take to see the amazing sunsets down by the Atlantic side beach.
Buttonwood is the perfect mid-island place to stay. We traveled north to Harbor Island one day and into Governor's Harbor to French Leave beach another day and the drive time was brief.
We rented our car from Sheree with Big Daddy's rental- she met us at the airport and the vehicle and service was superb. I highly recommend Buttonwood or any of the properties offered by this management group for your stay on Eleuthera. They go above and beyond so you will not be disappointed!
I can't wait to go back- I am already in the process for booking something next summer! :)
It was amazing!!! We wish we could have stayed longer. The golf cart was great! The condo was super clean, beds were SO comfortable and the interior design was amazing! Everyone was so sweet, kind and helpful. One of the BEST vacations I have been on. Perfect way to detach from the real world and take a break from work (I am a psychiatric nurse practitioner and rarely have time to detach!) Definitely will come back and recommend this place to friends and family. Wish I had the money to buy a condo!! Appreciate the prompt responses and communication prior to coming, the list of things to do and see was great. Thank you SO much for the awesome experience!! Transitioning into the real world has not been fun :( !!
Golf cart included! Private chef and other staff available
