2 Bedrooms, 2 Baths, Sleeps 6

Kool Jumbey (Unit 1C on the upper level) 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.

The Caribbean side also features our new 70 foot boat dock, a perfect for platform for jumping/diving, fishing, or of course docking a small boat.

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 loved our stay at Buttonwood! We chose this unit so we would have views of the Caribbean and the Atlantic and were not disappointed. On nights when the Atlantic was roaring in you could hear it from the balcony, and if the Caribbean gets rough you will have battling ocean sounds to relax to. Sunsets were incredible and we had a full moon during our time there that was amazing! Our unit was clean and well equipped with magnificent views of the Caribbean. The wrap around views to the Atlantic side are beautiful, and the golf cart ride is about 10 mins. We snorkeled some on the Caribbean side and found lots of shells. For first timers to the island, just be patient with issues like electricity outages or low water pressure occasionally.We knew this happens on the island so were not bothered at all. If you wait a bit they both come back pretty quick. We had 5 people in our unit so staggered our showers as much as possible and that worked fine for hurry to go anywhere or do anything anyway! Bring your own bug sprays to keep from getting eaten up by no-seeums and buy some apple cidar vinegar to soak in if you do get bit.I brought citronella candles to burn on the balcony in the evening. Sonya was a tremendous help and took care of a few grocery purchases before our arrival. The East and Final Grocery Store is very close by with a pretty good selection of supplies as well as the Leo Rose beachside restaurant which had a great grouper burger. Not far from Governors Harbour and the Buccaneer restaurant which was very good also.Pam's Island Gifts in Gregory Town has lots of local made souveniers, and The Blue Seahorse in Rock Sound as well.We explored a new beach every day and I even stopped using my windshield wiper as a blinker before we left! I was terrified of having to drive on the left side of the road but it was really no big deal after the first day.Many nice people on the island to meet. My only complaint was having to leave!

                                                        Very much enjoyed our stay at Buttonwood. Location is central to activities throughout the island. Management was excellent. The condo is clean, has plenty of space and the views are fantastic. The pool was cleaned daily and the access to both beaches was simple.

                                                        Buttonwood Reserve is a beautiful secluded property, yet still conveniently located to a small grocery and liquor store, which are hard to find on Eleuthera. It is conveniently located to Governor's Harbour, about 15 minutes away. The unit was beautifully decorated and the views from both balconies were breathtaking! Having the golf cart was a great amenity to get the Atlantic side beach. I spent the majority of my time on that beach as there was not one other footprint to be found! This is truly paradise and if you are looking for pure relaxation, go to Eleuthera and stay at Buttonwood Reserve!

                                                        The island of Eleuthera is absolutely beautiful and and very laid back. The condo at Buttonwood Reaerve was decorated beautifully and the views from Both balconies were amazing. The location of the condo is very convenient to a small grocery and liquor store, which are not always convenient to find on the island. The golf cart was a great amenity to get to the Atlantic side beach. I spent the majority of my time on that beach as it was completely secluded and there was not another footstep to be found on the beach. If you are looking for pure relaxation and natural beauty this is your place. I cannot wait to go back and stay!

                                                        Wonderful Condo Near Town of James Cistern, Eleuthera, Bahamas

                                                        This past week (mid-February 2017) my wife and I and another couple stayed in one of the upper units of Buttonwood Reserve on the island of Eleuthera. The condo was great! Sparkling clean and well stocked with dishes, glassware, linen, dishwasher, washing machine and dryer, and soap for both dishwasher and clothes washer. It includes a golf cart for the ~1 mile trip to the Atlantic-side beach, several kayaks to use in the nearby Caribbean bay, and a lovely warm swimming pool shared with the other seven condos on the property. The views of both the Atlantic and Caribbean from the two balconies were fantastic, and the balconys were great for viewing the amazing sky at night. The only mild annoyance was the occasional "no-see-um" bite around sunset, but most evenings were breezy, so no insects bothered us. It is important to have a vehicle as most restaurants and food stores, and some of the best swimming beaches, require transportation. There is one wonderful dining spot on the beach within walking distance from the condo - named Leorose at the southern edge of the town of James Cistern. Amazing to enjoy a rum punch and dinner on the beach while watching the sunset!

                                                        Governor's Harbour, The Bahamas

                                                        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 Governors 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. Just a mile from Buttonwood Reserve is the village of James Cistern, which has a good grocery store, a town dock where the fisherman bring their catch every day, a produce stand, and two small local restaurants, Kel-d’s and Lee’s cafe. James Cistern is also the home of Stubb’s famous barbecue, every Friday and Saturday, which is not to be missed. Buttonwood reserve is less than 10 minutes from the boutique luxury resort Sky Beach Club, which has an excellent beachfront restaurant 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), the Rainbow Inn (famous for its steaks) and Da Perk (cafe and sandwich shop). The restaurants and little resorts have live music one or more nights a week, so there is live entertainment somewhere nearby almost every night. 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.
