Best beach and stay on Eleuthera
Great bedroom layout. Our son flew in from Japan and could rest without disturbance. Snorkeling at the beach was great and even better at Tippies just down the road. Sherman, the property manager, is always available should need arise. Even supplied us with mangoes and coconuts. Kitchen is great. We had Horatio from Da Perk cook two meals for us and they were exceptional. Pool is perfect and golf carts to beach quite easy. If we return to Eleuthera we will stay here.
Everything was perfect. Our host was so helpful and responsive. The home is amazing and the location perfect. We seldom left the property because we were at the best place. Thank you Jane and Scott!
We loved our stay at Unicorn Cay
Over all we loved our stay at Unicorn Cay. The house was beautiful, very spacious and had a lot of character. The pool in the center of the courtyard made it easy to watch our children are playing. The beach that it adjoins this property was beautiful and was almost completely deserted. We did see several people each day on the beach as we walked, but overall, we pretty much had the beach to our self. The water was very clear and there will is good snorkeling straight off the beach.
There're several restaurants within a mile and half of the house we really enjoyed as well. A couple things to note that we were not quite aware of, or did not understand from the listing that I think are important to consider are that this beautiful house has four suits. They are all spacious with a full bathroom in each room. However only one master suite adjoins the office, large living room, dining room and kitchen. The other three suites require you to walk outside to get into the main part of the house. If it's all adults staying here that is probably ideal. However Families with children need to know that if their children are going to sleep in one of the other suites they will have to walk outside to get into the house if they are not in the master suite.
Cautious as we are, possibly overcautious, because as we stayed on the island for the week we realize how safe the island was, our children actually ended up sleeping in the office because they and we felt a little bit uneasy about having them outside completely away from us.
Also be aware that there are bugs and mosquitoes because it is the tropics but if you're in the water they tend to leave you alone for the most part.
Also in order to get to the beach the owners of the house have provided two golf carts and you have to drive about one or two minutes to the beach. In doing so you have to cross a road. You can see the ocean from the front of the house off in the distance.
Overall we absolutely loved are stay! We love the chilled vibe! We had put off going to the Bahamas for a long time because we felt that it was not as desirable as other countries, but we loved our time there and we'll definitely return.
Jane was absolutely awesome! Our flight got canceled due to some airplane issues and she very generously allowed us to return to the house without any problem. Sherman was also very pleasant and we enjoyed our interactions with him.
This home is beyond your wildest dreams! Jane is the most gracious host ever. There is so much to offer that the list is too long! When you enter the house you are enamoured by how well it is appointed.we did not want to leave this home but did so to take the golf cart to the beach, that was just for us!! If we had any concerns Jane was there in a jiffy to help.
This house is perfect beyond your wildest dreams! Jane even took one of our guests to the airport in a pinch!
Fantastic, amazing! I spent so much time taking pictures of all the well appointed gardens as well as incredible furnishings!
The beds as so comfortable! The pool perfect! Every utensil you could ever want. Even a steamer for our clothes!
Do not hesitate to rent this property. I want to save this gem for myself!!
Impressive Happy Place
Long Family weekend. Getting away from it all with modern amenities to keep the teens happy but amazing outdoor space and Beach Access to tempt them away from those electronics! Tranquil with comfortable decor.
Unicorn Cay doesn’t disappoint
Unicorn Cay was amazing. The property, residence and surrounding area was equally amazing. Every single detail was thought of and the amenities were fantastic. The property and house were perfectly clean and offered tons of privacy. The kitchen was perfect and we enjoyed nearly every night poolside, eating the fresh fish/seafood we’d caught on our fishing charter with Ty Man. We felt completely at home and literally couldn’t think of anything we’d change.
We couldn’t believe how many seats there were inside and outside of the house. We counted over 100 seats including all chairs, lounges and sofas.
Truly an amazing place and we can’t wait to book our next trip here. I think we found a new favorite place to spend our vacations, but next time we want to bring friends so they can experience this special place.
Tippy's, a popular restaurant and bar, is just a half mile away and can be reached by walking on the beach. Some of the other upscale restaurants within easy driving distance include 1648 at the French Leave, The Bistro at Sky Beach Club, or you can hire a private chef and dine in at the estate. The town of Governor's Harbour, just a few miles away has grocery stores, restaurants, liquor stores, banks, ATMs, gift shops, , and a medical clinic. Friday Night Fish Fry in Governer's Harbour is a street/beach party that brings together tourists and locals with food, drink, and dancing. Traveling about 60 miles north on Queen's Highway takes you to the 10 minute boat ferry to the well-known Harbour Island. It is frequently visited by celebrities and is known for its great restaurants and A+ rated beaches. One of the best things about Eleuthera is exploring the vast beaches and visiting with people from all over the world. Come and enjoy! You will be back!
