Why Mike Saviano chose Eleuthera

A peaceful, relaxing beach home that provides privacy.

Bone fishing out your front Door.

For the person who enjoys reading or just being lazy or perhaps a day of snorkeling around the Cay, Kayaking or walking the beach to collect sea shells.

What makes this apartment unique

A 110 mile long island comprised of small settlements made up of farmers and fisherman. A unique island that

is safe with the most friendly Bahamian people.

Beautiful apartment, impeccable!

  • 5 of 5

Mike and Sandy are wonderful hosts, making us feel at home, helping us navigate Eleuthera. We highly recommend! The apartment is private, clean and lovely. And it is RIGHT ON THE BEACH! The sea is right there to enjoy. We swam, sunned, beach-combed and snorkeled. We want to go back!! SOON!

Best beach on the island and location is perfect. We were made to feel welcome on arrival. The water at the apartment is not as good as the neighbors...not sure why.

Owner's Response: It is wonderful to have guest, joining a large gathering of friends and family for a wedding party on our beach. we had a broken water line, from the highway, that needed to be flushed out. we do have a 16,000 gallon cistern of rainwater that could have been used. Glad you loved your stay

Encore visit to Paradise

  • 5 of 5

This was our second stay at Mike's house and apartment on Gaulding Cay Beach and it will not be our last. If you're looking for a quiet and tranquil getaway on a pristine beach with crystal clear water, than this is the place. Mike arranged for Wallace to pick us up at the airport, we stopped off at the grocery store and to pick up a few Kalik beer before arriving at the apartment. If you like exploring, you can rent a car, or have Wallace look after your transportation needs. There is plenty to see on North Eleuthera, but we also recommend a short water taxi ride to Harbour Island or Spanish Wells to spend the day. In both locations, a golf cart is the best means of transportation. Governor's Harbour is also a great field trip.

Mike is a fantastic host that will give you your privacy and he is always available for advice and ideas or to assist you. If your idea of a vacation or getaway is low key, with a beautiful beach, then Mike's house is for you. Our only regret is that we couldn't stay longer.

Thanks Mike for your hospitality,

John & Francine

My daughter and I could not have chosen a better location. Mike's place was so comfortable and inviting. We walked out the door and were in the beautiful turquoise water in just a few steps. Beautiful location and accommodation.

Thanks, Mike

Sincerely

Pam and Chris

A little slice of heaven

  • 5 of 5

This cozy little cottage on Gaulding Cay Beach was absolutely perfect for the quiet and relaxing vacation I was looking for. From the moment our driver Julian picked us up at the airport, to the moment he returned us to the airport, our vacation was fabulous. Mike's spot on this beach is simply ideal. The crystal clear water was very calm, and great for swimming, with lots of sand bars at low tide. The color of the water was simply gorgeous, various hues of turquoise that always changed.

The apt. was immaculate and just as described. Its location on the beach was prime, walking just a few feet out the door to the water and chaise lounges. Mike was so very helpful and accommodating, and his friend Sandy as well. He arranged for us to hire a driver he knew, to take us on day trips. Julian, being a native of Eleuthera, was very knowledgable of the island.

I would highly recommend taking a day trip to Harbor Island and to Spanish Wells. The islands are only a 5 minute boat ride, and golf carts are available for rent. We rented them on both islands and had lots of fun driving them around and seeing all the sights.

Eleuthera and Mike's cottage are a great choice if you are looking for a low key vacation on a beautiful and quiet beach. If I could only put it in my backyard...
