About Scott or Tracey

'Eleuthera is not for Everyone' is a popular saying on the Island. Father of identical twin 18 year old boys and the busy schedules thereof restricted our Eleuthera time to less than a week each year. Since Heaven is not for sale and for practical reasons we decided to rent our home. However our loss is your gain! Tired of the tourist traps, well, in that case, Eleuthera is for you.

Scott or Tracey purchased this house in 2004

Why Scott or Tracey chose Eleuthera

As the astronauts say, it is the clearest water on Earth! Deserted Beaches, peace and quiet and unanimously some of the friendliest people you will ever meet.

What makes this house unique

Privacy. Huge campus with a young Orchard in the rear yard and a private Beach and Infinity Pool in the Front Yard. Over 100 coconut trees,

optional: Cook

Private Beach - Fresh Water Infinity Pool with shallow and deep ends

Several hammocks - 6 Kayaks including 1 double -

wireless internet at house and pool - Direct TV - A/C in all rooms - towels & linens

The property is lovely and as described. Well maintained with a delightful staff available.

  • 5 of 5

We were 10 adults visiting in March and had a great time! The property is as described with many amenities. The staff is very accommodating, helpful and friendly. There are tings to do in the area if you like adventures. And hanging out at Sunset Villa is a vacation in itself. If you like to snorkel, you can right in your own private beach and around the corner. Island life is wonderful. The locals are friendly and helpful. Great food to be had.

Tropical Heaven on Earth

  • 5 of 5

Spent a spectacular week with family and friends in this home and cannot wait to return. The island is an absolute treasure, not to mention the friendliness of the people, the things to do, the breathtaking sights and total relaxation. The home is large enough for a large gathering but remains intimate so you don't feel detached from your group. The grounds are quiet, well maintained and private with so many amenities that you don't need to leave the property unless you want to surf on the other side. The home is well maintained and stocked to cook meals and enjoy each others company around the large dining table. Coffee on the deck in the morning or a walk to the waterfront is the the most beautiful way to begin your day. Just an all encompassing wonderful, relaxing time. We definitely filled our minds with beauty and many, many memories on this trip, in this house and on this island. We will definitely return!!!

Paradise awaits...

  • 5 of 5

Words simply cannot describe this property, it's amenities and the awesome owners and staff. The property is gorgeous, and as the owner states, I must agree it is Heaven on Earth. There was a group of 14 of us that stayed for the week. Not once did we feel cramped. The awesome game room/living room on the top floor was taken over by the teenagers in the group. It was perfect for everyone. The dining room table, being as grandeur as it is, was a great spot for dinner and fun.

The property is beautiful, from the vegitation, to the turquoise blue water views. There is not a lack of amenities, either. Our group snorkeled, swam in the double-layer infinity pool, kayak, SUP'd and jumped and/or layed on the water trampoline...all right on the property!

The caretaker, Ernie, was extremely accomodating and knowledgeable. Tracey is a great asset, as well as an AWESOME cook. She prepared a spectacular dinner for us ( I have to add, I have a picky eater and his plate was clean at the end of dinner!).

Daddy Joe's is a great restaurant/bar that is just a walk down the road. Highly recommended. Check out Thursday for burger night, along with great live entertainment.

Another great memory was the fishing trip the guys took with Andrew. They came back with an abundance of fish and lobster(crawlfish) that we had for dinner later that evening. GREAT experience!

The weather while we were there in January couldn't have been better. Shorts and bathing suits were the attire for the week!

I know I speak for our ENTIRE group, from the kids to the adults, we LOVED it. If you are looking for a great home to escape to...THIS IS IT. We are all ready to go back....next week?? lol

Words can't say...

  • 5 of 5

Words can not say just how much fun we had and how lovely this house and property were! I took my husband, three girls, their three guys and three grandchildren for a week and we had the best time! We've been renting vacation homes and vacationing together every summer since our girls were in elementary school and everyone agreed this was the BEST house we've ever stayed in! So much room, so many "toys" to play with and, really, what could top the beautiful views everywhere? We really didn't want to come home and hope to return again soon. Scott, Ernie and Tracy were so helpful from responding to numerous questions before our trip to stopping in to check on us and even preparing us amazing meals! I saw reviews where folks said to have Tracy cook for you but I thought with our houseful of picky eaters that it just wouldn't work for us. Was I wrong! Tracy was happy to accommodate every desire and wish with a smile! You just HAVE to have her cook for you when you are visiting! We usually just use the house as a base to sight see from but everyone agreed that we had no need to go anywhere! The house had the best beach, snorkeling, pools, best accommodations and so much to do right there. We did visit the Queen's Baths and another beach or two but every time we came back to the house we said, "why did we leave? We've got all we need right here!". We had lovely "cleaning fairies" visit the house twice during the week which was great! The joys of a hotel without the claustrophobia of a hotel. All in all-a great week of many memories that we won't forget! Thanks to Scott, Tracy and Ernie-you guys are the best!

Spectacular place, hope to return again sometime.

  • 5 of 5

Wow, this property is better than anything we expected, even after reading all the great reviews. I don't think the pictures on the listing do it justice. We visited in March 2016 and had two families with 4 adults and 6 children (ages 11-17). There was something for everyone. The kids loved the paddleboards, kayaks and water trampoline. The pools were a big hit as well. The pool house with refrigerator was great. There were plenty of chairs and loungers to sit at on all levels. Sunsets were great to watch from the patio on top of the pool house. We also played a lot of Bocce on the grass lawn.

We thought we would be spending most of our time over at Gaulding Cay, which is a short walk away, but the private beach was perfect. There was plenty of snorkeling within walking/kayaking distance. Snorkeling was great for the kids who weren't really experienced snorkelers. They could see a large variety of fish in a safe environment that wasn't too deep. Glass Window Bridge was a short kayak trip away.

The house was perfect for our families. Lots of room to hangout with great views out every window or from any of the many porches. Generally we spent almost all our time outside.

Ernie and Tracy were also great. We definitely recommend having Tracy cook for you at least once. We had a great meal and she accommodated all the unique dietary requirements from picky kids to food allergies. Everyone loved Ernie who was a daily presence and full of great knowledge and stories. He took us cliff diving, to hatchet caves and to see his pineapple farm.

We had never stayed in the North before but really enjoyed it. The restaurants were great. We ate at Daddy Joe's, Rainbow Inn and Laughing Lizard and recommend all three. As for activities we did Queens Baths, Surfers Beach, Harbour Island, Preachers Cave, Preachers Cave Beach (one of Ernie's Favorites), and Sapphire Hole. Sapphire Hole was very cool and a lot of fun. All of these were very convenient from Sunset Villa.

North Eleuthera Shopping Center was about 25 minutes away and was a well stocked supermarket (at least relative to other Eleuthera supermarkets). There are multiple smaller stores in Gregory Town (including the 7 to 11) for quick needs. Island Made Gift Shop in Gregory Town was also very nice.

We would definitely recommend this property and hope to return again sometime.
