Overview

About the property

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.

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.

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!

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.

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.

Beautiful Property

  • 5 of 5

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!

Reviewer Comments:

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

  • 5 of 5

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!

Relaxed luxury with unbelievable views

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I stayed at Buttonwood in January, 2016 and really enjoyed it. The master bedroom offers amazing views of the Bight of Eleuthera (think gorgeous, turquoise waters), and on a clear night you can gaze at the moon glowing on the water before you doze off. The decor is modern but not fussy, the space is bright and open but still feels cozy… it's just a great place. There are 8 condos on this property and when we were there 6/8 were occupied, but it was so quiet and private that we still felt like we were the only ones there.

At this rental you're close to both James Cistern, Rainbow Bay, and Governors Harbour so groceries, bars, and restaurants are close but not "too close". We didn't swim at the beach on the Atlantic side since the weather was chilly and really windy during our stay, but it's great for a stroll (you can see a shipwreck from the beach!), it's just a short walk (or golf cart ride) from the property, and our guidebook highly recommends it.

We loved our stay at Buttonwood, and our positive experience here is one reason that we fell in love with Eleuthera.
