A beautiful home with a gorgeous, private setting

  • 5 of 5

Sea Esta is a wonderful home with lots of privacy, set right on the water. It is very clean and the decor is beautiful. There are three large bedrooms. The kitchen is well-stocked with anything you might need to cook a meal. The owners were very gracious and helpful with recommendations of things to do and see. We spent the week of New Year's with our 4 children (ages 11-18) and had more than enough room. The Wifi worked great too!

We did lose power on three different occasions, so just be prepared with a flashlight and candles just in case (they have them stocked). It was a beautiful island....but plan ahead where you might like to eat... and CALL to confirm they are open. We drove around looking for places to eat which are very limited and were often closed. We loved Tippy's, 1648 at French Leaf Resort, and The Bucaneer. Also, take plenty of CASH...many places do not accept credit cards.

We had an amazing stay st Sea Esta- just like home, but better!!!

  • 5 of 5

My family of four (two adults and two kids ages 12 and 14) stayed for 10 days in mid August. I can't tell you how wonderful it was to spend the day in the blazing heat only to come back and kick on the a/c and relax! Almost as nice as showering outside! Not one of us took an indoor shower our entire stay at Sea Esta. It was lovely to shower while looking out at the Sea and hearing the birds all around. One of our favorite things about our stay!

The house was wonderfully appointed and we were not in need of anything. I cooked nightly and never once did I need something that I did not have. The beds were super comfy, nice towels and everything was super clean. I can easily be creeped out by rental homes and Sea Esta did not disappoint.

Lastly, Gerald and Pat were super helpful with advice and tips. There was a new market close by that Gerald recommended and if he had not, we might have driven

Right by. Also, the recommendation for LaShanta's food truck was spot on!! Do not miss this. Very close to the house and we would have eaten there daily if we weren't out exploring.

Overall, we loved Sea Esta. Very rarely are things better than expected and they certainly were with this home. Thank you!!!

A fantastic place for å family vacation

  • 5 of 5

This is a fantastic house. It is equipped with everything you need for a perfect vacation. You will find everything in the kitchen to make å perfect meal. Don' t bother about bed linen or towels, you will find a lot of them. We enjoyed the kayaks. The hammock close to the shore is a very nice place to relax.

We were met by the owner, Gerry. He turned out to be the perfect host, discrete, but easy to get in touch with.

There are a lot of nice beaches within 20 minutes drive from Sea Esta. You will also find a variety of restaurants and grocery stores not too far from the house. Gerry gave us som very good advices.

Renting a house has been our way spending our vacation for å lot of years. Sea Esta deserves to be considered the best house we ever had.

Owner's Response: Marcus Thank you for the designation, very much appreciated, we as owners should also have a star rating for our guests as well . You arrived promptly and kept our home as your own. I would give you a five star rating.Thank you so much . Please come again, if you came at an earlier time , say May or June I could take you deep sea fishing , I am sure your boys would enjoy that . Have a great year. Toes in the water. Gerry

Sea Esta

The home is all we wanted. A short walk to the water, with great outdoor space as well as a covered cabana for the late afternoon suns that seem too hot.

The kitchen has everything even spices and coffee. The open concept room of living, dining and kitchen overlook the water.

Bedrooms and bathrooms adequate. The lower level is set up as a separate suite, great to get away from the teenagers.

We really loved the outside shower, never showered inside, private and refreshing.. the owner has 3 kayaks for our use.

SeaEsta is with 10 minutes of the best restaurants as well as ISland Farm

The owners were helpful and responded quickly to any questions we had.

Can't wait to return.

Fully loaded for fun family vacation

  • 5 of 5

Had a great family vacation thanks to perfectly situated Sea Esta beach house. House comes with two kayaks (one single, one double), beach chairs, 2 boogie boards. Kitchen is fully stocked with a big island that seats 6. Plenty of beach towels, DVDs, Eleuthera beach guide books, and a binder full of the sort of info you need to have a great vacation (bonefish guides, boat rental, car rental, beaches to try, etc) on Eleuthera. Beach house is nicely situated near Ten Bay beach on the Caribbean side, French Leaf beach on Atlantic...about an hour away from the southern point, and a little more than an hour from northern point of island which made day trips to Light House beach and Harbor Island doable. Excellent snorkeling right from the backyard (we brought our own snorkeling gear). Near restaurants in Governor's Harbor and Island Farm market where you can get fresh produce, bread, sauces, etc. Two bedrooms upstairs (with kitchen and living room) and 1 bedroom downstairs with its own living room (need to use outside stairs to access the first floor unit which also houses laundry room and 2nd bathroom). Excellent outdoor space with view of the Caribbean ocean. Owners live nearby and are very helpful and accessible which was great. My family loved this place and already looking forward to returning to Eleuthera and staying at Sea Esta again!

Owner's Response: Jewon Thank you for staying at Sea Esta. Looking forward to your return, hopefully the Atlantic won't be as windy and we can do some deep sea fishing. The coconut is planted at our home and doing well. Toes in the water. Gerry

Peaceful and comfortable

  • 5 of 5

My family stayed at Sea Esta for spring break and we had a fabulous time! The house was very clean and comfortable! We had enough space for every one to spread out and not be on top of one another! We cooked many meals in the fully stocked kitchen . The covered porch was awesome to sit around and relax and enjoy the fantastic views while drinking coffee or a cocktail. Pat and Gerry were very accommodating and were there for whatever we needed! It's also the perfect central location for getting around the island. We were very close to the Plant Farm which had fresh bread and pastries every Tuesday and Fridays (but get there when they open or you will miss out), grocery stores and some great restaurants too! We got to see a lot of colorful starfish, stingrays, fish and even a nurse shark while snorkeling out the back waters. We would definitely recommend staying here!!!!
