                                                          We booked the villa for three weeks. We have been to Eleuthera before, so we had the luxury of knowing what we wanted and where we wanted to be. Our last vacation to Eleuthera was amazing and we worried that this vacation might not be as good as the standard we had was very high. Let me just say this trip far exceeded our last trip to the island. It started with great pre-booking communication with Sara the owner, she was so responsive and so helpful. We arrived on island very early in the morning on the day of check-in. We phoned Ken the great guy who looks after the house and he was very helpful. He was able to give us a definitive time to come to the house and check-in. We arrived at the house and as others have mentioned, it was just as good as advertised and in many ways much better. House is very new, very nice and so spacious. The pictures in no way give the proper perspective on how large this house is. The bedrooms are massive and the beds are very very comfortable. From the very first moment we entered the house we felt at home. Each room has air conditioning and the main areas of the house have central air conditioning which helps very much when it get's very warm. They have a very large refrigerator and a massive washer and dry for cleaning your clothes. On the backside of the house you have a massive porch/deck that is very well equipped with chairs, tables and lounge chairs. Also as you can see by the pictures the hot tube was amazing, especially at night. Paddle board and Kayak were an everyday activity for us. Just about everyday, we were able to see stingrays, and small nurse sharks. Actually you don't need to kayak to see the sharks, as they sometimes come very close to the shore. Don't worry they are pretty much harmless and they will avoid you if you are in the water near them. So much to see in the water and it was so beautiful. 21 days and it only rained one day.... Three weeks was not long enough, this house is amazing and we are already planning our trip back for next year. Thanks so much Sara for allowing us to stay in your home.

                                                          Exceeded all my expectations. As nice as the pictures are on the Web, they still don't do justice to how beautiful the property and surrounding area is. The house is kept in impeccable condition and you can spend the a whole week without leaving the bay. Fishing, sun, snorkeling, amazing sunsets, nearby supplies . . . the place has it all! - Peter I., NYC USA There are no words to describe how wonderful our stay was at Bahama Villa. A lot of tender loving care went into making this villa a most comfortable, inviting, and relaxing place to stay for any length of time! The house, the views, the patio, the deck, the sand bars, low tide, high tide, the snorkeling, the king bed, the privacy, etc. all added up to a great getaway! - Deborah Zuczek, PA USA
