About Scott

'Eleuthera is not for Everyone' is a popular saying on the Island. Father of identical twin 16 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 purchased this house in 2004

Why Scott chose Gregory Town

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, snorkel equipment, TV's in every room, super-quiet AC's in every room, every board game imaginable.

Feel like Royalty!

  • 5 of 5

Best Vacation EVER! Thanks to Scott, Ernie, Tracey, Tira and the rest of the crew! Description was very accurate but still doesn't do the property justice. We had plenty of room for our multi-family vacation with ages from 2-67. We loved using the kayaks and snorkeling as well as using the fire pit. A welcomed surprise was how well we were able to see the stars at night! We saw the edge of the Milky Way and were so lucky to be there during a meteor shower!

Keep your aloe and sunscreen at home, there is plenty at the house. One thing you may want to bring with you is toilet paper. The house provides the first round of paper products and water but guests need to supply the rest. We found out that toilet paper is very expensive on the island compared to our Ohio prices. Water was $5 per jug to fill up so not too bad. Our group drank a lot of coffee as well so we went through about 2 jugs of water a day.

Tracey, Ernie and Tira made us feel like Royalty and took such great care of us! Tracey and Ernie even made an arch for our wedding day at the property! The bouquet that Sonya and Tracey made was beautiful, also! Talent abounds with the staff of Sunset Villa.

This is definitely a vacation that we'll all be talking about for years to come. Tracey and the crew feel like part of the family and we are relaxed beyond belief. We can't wait to return!!!

Perfect!

  • 5 of 5

We were 3 couples looking for a rental house with a beach, pool and amazing views! We found exactly that at Sunset Villa!! What we didn't know is that an amazing staff would be part of the deal! Ernie, the property caretaker, was very attentive. He helped us navigate the island and brought us fresh pineapple everyday from his farm. People...you've never tasted pineapple so good. Tracey and Tera cooked and cleaned for us and were super friendly and helpful. Tracey's conch fritters were to die for.

The house was well stocked and clean. Very, very comfortable, but what you really need to know is how amazing the rest of the property is. Spacious paradise! Two level pool (right on the beach) with pool house that includes kitchenette and bathroom. The beach is clean and large which made for great swimming. There was a water trampoline which would be fun if kids were on the trip. Plus we took advantage almost everyday in using the kayaks. The water is amazingly clear and calm which made for great kayaking.

Recommendations:

-Take advantage of Ernie's island knowledge. If you are adventurous, ask him to take you cliff jumping.

-Ask Tracey to cook for you during your trip. We asked her to have some appetizers ready for us when we arrived from airport and then had her prepare two meals for us that week.

-Snorkeling behind the house at Gaulding Cay was great. You can kayak over or take the path on the side of the house.

-Must sees: Queens Bath, Preacher's Cave/Beach, day trip to Horbour Island.

-Bonfire-The house has a great fire pit and Ernie will prepare for you. You may want to bring mosquito spray.

-The only downfall for us was the ants in the kitchen. Tracey said they are bad in the summer. Bring ant traps and be prepared to put all food in refrigerator. We lost many bags if chips and candy to the ants. :(

Our experience at Sunset Villa was great from beginning to end!!!

WORDS CAN'T DESCRIBE!!!!!!

  • 5 of 5

I thought about what to write because I was so very happy with our vacation, but there are not enough words, SERIOUSLY!!!!

We have been to 4 Island homes in the Bahamas, rented from VRBO, and this was the Absolute BEST!!!!!!!

Ernie, Tracey, Tira.......they are now family to us!!! The house is IMMACULATE, the staff. a GOD send, and the grounds are paradise. Our 5 Kids had PLENTY to do, enough space to relax, Amazing pool to swim in, water trampoline to tire them daily, paddle boards to adventure to the beach across the way, kayaks to travel and snorkel and go see Lenny Kravitz house. Food prepared by Tracey to die for, and she and Tira helped watching the kids so we could go to Harbor Island to see the pink sand, which I highly recommend......these girls care for this house and the guests like you are royalty!!! No exageration. There aren't enough words.

I loved driving on the Island to the liquor store, food store, Daddy Joe's, Governor's Harbor, Glass Bottom Bridge, Queen's bath, Hatchet Bay Cave, and the list goes on.......

I am telling you, look no further, this is the house to rent......

We will be back next year, and If I have my way this Summer.....don't tell my hubby...hahahaha

It doesn't get any better

  • 5 of 5

This was our second time staying at the villa and it was even better than the first time. It's just unbelievable. There are many things to see and explore on the island...so my family tells me, I never left the beach or ocean. We stayed for sixteen days and every day there was something new to do. The ocean life was incredible...jack fish feeding...trumpet fish...sea turtles...Bone fish...lots of Manta rays...dolphins...barracudas and a sand shark which is a bottom feeder. The best part of the trip was the same as last time...Ernie,Josh,Tracy and Shakira...they made our holidays. They are truly some of the nicest people our family has met....thanks guys. Once again Scott, thanks for allowing us to stay At your villa. Cory

Spectacular

  • 4 of 5

This place was more than what I expected. There were 19 of us, we had more than enough room. The beach was just a short walk, and it was beautiful sitting down there in the mornings. Ernie was the Best, was so helpful with all we needed. Driving on the wrong side of the road was the only thing that was a little tricky at first. Everyone, and I mean everyone was so friendly, we did not have to worry about anything. Can't wait to come back here again

Peaceful Vacation

  • 5 of 5

Our family of 12 (4 young children and 8 adults) stayed here in January and enjoyed the time together in a remote location in a spacious home with lovely grounds. The beautiful private beach and shallow clear waters were the best! The pictures don't do them justice. It was such a treat to have the paddle boards and kayaks. We did lose power a time or two, which added to the "we are not in Kansas anymore" experience. Tracy cooked for us twice which was awesome! Her coconut cake is worth the calories. Ernie checked in on us everyday and brought us bananas and tomatoes from his garden. We did have a little confusion about pick up from the airport, but the airport manager was so helpful and drove us himself to the home. Everyone we met on the island was friendly and this is the place for you if you enjoy informality, peace and quiet, beauty and solitude. This is not a place for entertainment seekers.
