Overview

About the property

2 Bedrooms, 2 Bathrooms, Sleeps 6

Beautifully decorated, this extraordinary new condominium is located on a ridge 45 feet above the Caribbean at Buttonwood Reserve in Eleuthera, Bahamas. This lower floor unit is conveniently located next to the swimming pool, where attentive parents can keep a close eye on kids at play.

While inside, enjoy the crisp and clean feel of the interior, with a well- appointed living room in the vibrant colors of the island, and bedrooms with luxuriously layered bedding.

Of course, for all the attention we have given to interior colors, the most compelling accents remain the ribbons of blue and green Caribbean waters right outside your window. From your rental's large windows and extensive decks, you have a 50-mile, 180-degree view of the Caribbean, facing west to watch the sunset over the ocean.

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 Over the Rainbow 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!

An excellent introduction to Eleuthera!

  • 5 of 5

This was our first trip to Eleuthera and Buttonwood Reserve was the perfect introduction to this pristine and peaceful island. With convenient proximity to GH airport, it was easy to get settled in after a long day of travelling. The condo was spotlessly clean and well cared for and we felt at home right away. Other guests were friendly and helpful. Paddle boarding and snorkeling on the calm Caribbean side was one of the highlights of our entire trip as was our golf cart adventure to the Atlantic side where we walked for miles on the powdery white sand beaches....and only saw one other couple the whole time. We were happy to discover what ended up being our favourite restaurant (LeoRose) within walking distance (we went 3 times!) where we enjoyed great food, live music, and unmatched hospitality. There was also convenient shopping in James Cistern which made it easy to get some supplies. We thought the location was ideal as we adventured to the far north and south of Eleuthera from this central spot. We loved it :)

Amazing vacation

  • 5 of 5

We are fortunate enough to have been able to stay a second time at the Buttonwood. The unit was pristinely clean and beautifully decorated. We spent a week here and after busy days of exploring beaches and snorkeling it was a wonderful feeling to come "home" to this unit everyday. Patrick, the groundskeeper, and Brenda his wife (housekeeper), are simply amazing people who ensured our comfort and satisfaction. Sonya welcomed us with a huge smile and any questions we had she was readily available. Dealing with all of the Buttonwood community was a real pleasure and we will most certainly visit again! I can't say enough nice things about our experience, Unit 2 B, the Buttonwood and Eleuthera. It definitely holds a special place in all of our hearts.
