Will staying at Cupid’s Key unlock the love life you’ve always wanted?

We’re reluctant to make promises, but there are definitely worse strategies to consider. And one promise we can make with high confidence is that your visit here will definitely unlock your love for the extraordinary beauty of the Caribbean.

Your view from this top floor unit is especially spectacular, looking south towards Governor’s Harbour, the provincial capital, where you will find the “real” Cupid’s Cay. Two insider tips for you: First, yes, “Cay” really is pronounced like “key” – so now you won’t sound like a tourist. Second, Cupid’s Cay is actually the birthplace of the Bahamas!

When you return home to your Cupid’s Key, enjoy the décor full of nautical blues and the splendor of the flowers, the ‎waters and the local crafts scattered across the 110 miles of the island. There’s a good chance that after a week here you will have fallen in love for good.

Buttonwood Reserve has access to two beaches. On the Atlantic side, Buttonwood has a world-class, 3-mile-long pink-sand beach, pristine, without a single house on it. This Atlantic side beach is accessed via our private, golf-carts only driveway. The condominium comes with a golf cart. This miles-long beach is virtually private for us, because the only other access is a rough and little used jeep track half a mile to the south. On the Caribbean side of our property, almost in your front yard, is a second beach, which has excellent snorkeling, kayaking, paddle boarding, and fishing. This beach is small and rather rocky, so not so aesthetic, but it’s as calm as a lake most of the time and perfect for the above activities.

If you’re not in the mood for a swim in the ocean on one of our two beaches, slip into our new resort-style pool, just steps from your condominium. This beautiful landscaped pool is heated for comfortable swimming year round.

Back inside, the great room of this magnificent condominium features an 8-foot sliding glass door with Caribbean views. The slider opens onto a large deck furnished for lounging or dining while watching the sun set over the Caribbean. This spacious deck extends around the corner of the building for views in every direction. Enjoy a meal or a beverage on the deck, or watch the dolphins frolic in the Caribbean. The great room includes a living area with flat-screen satellite TV and a dining area with dining room seating for six. 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 magnificent panoramic views of the Caribbean, king bed and a fully equipped en-suite full bath.

The guest bedroom offers another spectacular view, this one facing east. The guest 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.

Situated on 50 lush acres, Buttonwood Reserve extends from the Caribbean Sea on the west to the Atlantic Ocean on the east. Buttonwood’s spectacular three-mile Atlantic beach is pristine, without a single house on it. The only structure is a thatched palapa we built on the dune for shade. Enjoy long walks, swimming, and body surfing on this beautiful beach. On calm days, when the ocean can be as flat as a lake, there is excellent snorkeling, including on a shipwreck close to shore.

Buttonwood Reserve comes with kayaks for use on the sea or in our pond. Buttonwood’s half-mile-long pond is a great spot for bird-watching or exploring.

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. 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. Governor's Harbour has grocery stores, restaurants, liquor stores, two banks with ATMs, a bakery, gift shops, and a medical clinic. The Friday night Fish Fry in Governor's 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 two grocery stores (JC Discount and East and Final), 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.

Buttonwood Reserve is less than 10 minutes from the boutique luxury resort Sky Beach Club, which has an excellent beachfront restaurant (Pascal's) 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), 1648 Bar & Grille at French Leave (fine dining for lunch and dinner - great bar and deck), The Rainbow Inn (famous for its steaks and Monday night pizza night), The Buccaneer (breakfast, lunch and dinner with island specialties), the Bank's Road Deli (gourmet sandwiches, coffee, pastries and nibbles), Da Perk Cafe (cafe and sandwich shop). The above all 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 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. 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 Cupid's Key at Buttonwood Reserve and experience all that Governor's Harbour and Eleuthera has to offer.

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!

Absolutely gorgeous place - great value!!

  • 5 of 5

We stayed at Buttonwood twice - first with our two children over Thanksgiving, then again with friends for a long weekend in January. It is exceptional. The gorgeous views of both the Caribbean and the Atlantic are breathtaking, as are the beach and pool, and we never had to share them with anybody! There is so much to do on Eleuthera that the other guests seemed to be out and about most of the time. We went to several different beaches on the island, and all were spectacular - and mostly deserted. The island is a great place to really get away and find peace and quiet, but with good cell service and wifi so you don't have to completely disconnect. The condo itself was stylishly decorated with comfortable furniture and a nice kitchen. There is nothing better than taking in the view of the Caribbean while drinking coffee in bed in the morning! Eleuthera Vacation Rentals sent us an extensive list of things to do and information about the island in advance of our stay, which gave us a great way to plan ahead and think about what we wanted to do. Highly recommend Buttonwood and will definitely be back!

What a gem!

  • 5 of 5

We loved our time at Buttonwood Reserve! The space felt instantly like home...so inviting, chic, and with everything we needed and more. We cooked nearly every night in their deluxe kitchen, enjoyed perfect sunsets from the balcony, and woke up to ocean views from bed. We didn't rent a car but with their free kayaks, bikes, golf carts, pool, and beaches...we didn't need to need to stray far to have fun! We really hope to come back some day and stay longer!

Beautiful and peaceful stay at Buttonwood

  • 4 of 5

We thought the property was beautiful, modern, and well-maintained. Patrick, the groundskeeper, was such a kind and gentle man and we enjoyed chatting with him very much. He was very accommodating to us, getting us the kayaks, the boogie boards, and the lifejackets. He definitely has a way about him that we all enjoyed. He even cut fresh coconuts off the trees for us, and cut them open so we could drink fresh coconut water. Our daughter thought it was great(we did too!!). We cooked two of our dinners at home, and made all of our breakfasts and lunches there. We wanted for nothing, and enjoyed the nice touches and detail, like having beach bags there to take things to the beach. Governor's Harbour is about 20 mins away and we enjoyed eating at Tippy's and French Leave. We had an SUV and definitely recommend that for exploring.
