A good place in South Eleuthera.

  • 4 of 5

The property was well situated and clean. It seemed exactly the way it was described. It was clean and well maintained and the housekeeper was amazing. She went beyond what she needed to do to help us on the night of our arrival.

There was only one problem. The water pressure was almost non existent in the shower and because of this it took forever for the washer to fill. It was almost impossible to take a shower! I would recommend the owners have better outdoor furniture. Since there were only 2 of us the tiny table with 2 chairs was plenty, but for a bigger group I think they need to provide something better.

Because I was there for a summit at the Island School I did not eat out. We did attend the Homecoming Celebration and have some great conch fritters and rum.

I liked the proximity to a great grocery store and bank.

Having never ben to the Eleuthera Islands it was a treat. I highly recommend to get a recommendation for the car rental from the rental agency. The person we were

sent to was great. I also recommend getting a jeep if you would like to visit the lighthouse beach which might have been one of the most beautiful places I have ever been to.

I would definitely rent this property again.

Located within walking distance of grounds where many of the public events in Rock ound are held. My family and I really enjoyed our stay and look forward to returning.

Total Relaxation with upgrades!

  • 5 of 5

We simply loved our stay at Island Gem... for starters from every room there the most beautiful view of turquoise waters. Having breakfast or a moonlight dinner on the verandah was another favorite. The beaches are absolutely breath taking and they are a very short walk from the house. We did rent a car, and that lead us to even more beautiful secluded beaches a short drive away, however. Terri and Gerald were most accommodating and made sure we were comfortable and well taken care of. The house had everything you would have at home and plus some! Not to mention it is a newer home. The kitchen area has all the upgrades, and was a great conversation area for friends and family! We highly recommend Island Gem and look forward to returning this summer 2015!
