Paradise!

  • 5 of 5

This was our first visit to Eleuthera and Whel-Appointed, and we can’t wait to go back! The home, location, and island are truly spectacular. It is very evident that there was so much thought and care put into building this amazing home. Not one detail was overlooked, from the luxury amenities, gorgeous finishes, wrap around porches with comfortable rocking chairs, and the rooftop observation deck! We especially enjoyed the fantastic views of the ocean from the porch, and the close proximity to the beach. The beach is absolutely breathtaking… soft pink sand and crystal clear water, and we were lucky enough to have our own ‘private’ beach all week! The home is meticulously maintained, and fully equipped with everything you could possibly need.. including a fully stocked kitchen, beach chairs, coolers, snorkel equipment; as well as a very informative guest book and beach reference guide. The home is also centrally located on the island making it very convenient to visit all attractions, restaurants, beaches, stores, etc (although we would have been completely content relaxing at the house and on the beach all week :).

David and Michele are such great hosts and have truly thought of every possible thing to ensure you have an enjoyable, relaxing stay! David was also so pleasant to work with... unparalleled communication and genuine care that we enjoyed our stay. Thank you, David and Michele, for sharing your piece of paradise with us! We are looking forward to planning our next visit.

Amazing place on Eleuthera

  • 5 of 5

David & Michelle's house truly has everything you need for a wonderful vacation. While not located directly on the beach the short path makes it feel like you are. The deck space is incredible to allow you more outside living and having air condition inside was be a welcome relief from the intense sun. THe location is perfect allowing the ability to explore all over the island. Thank you for sharing your wonderful home with us, we truly enjoyed our time there.

Owner's Response: It was our pleasure to host you in our Island home. We are very happy to hear that you enjoyed the house and our closeness to the beach. We enjoy the breezes very much from the porches from both the ocean and the pond. We'd love to have you return so just let us know if you decide to come back to the Island and our home! Very Best, Michele and David

Fourth time's a charm! Can't wait to come back...

  • 5 of 5

This was my fourth time at Whel-Appointed, and I can't wait to go back for the fifth! Everything is, in a word, perfect. From David's great, clear communication, to the house itself, and the island and its people, and the pristine beaches...it couldn't have been any better. Whel-Appointed has beautiful, clean rooms; nice, cool A/C; fantastic water pressure in the shower (key for me); and its proximity to one of the world's best beaches is unparalleled. I almost don't want to tell people any more, as I'd like Eleuthera to be my secret...but I can't help myself. This house, and this island, is a perfect gem. (Thanks, David and Michele, for creating this paradise!)

Magnificent home!

  • 5 of 5

In terms of space the house is probably overkill for two couples but we managed to enjoy every bit of it! The beach is fantastic and the proximity to Governors Harbor makes it much more convenient to run in to town to stores and restaurants. Rented a car from Mr. Gardnier and were very pleased with that..

Perfect House, Perfect Location!

  • 5 of 5

This stay was our third visit to Eleuthera, and Whel Appointed definitely made it our best! We had stayed in Governor's Harbour previously, and also stayed in Rock Sound. Whel Appointed cannot be beat. The house is very well maintained, spotlessly clean, and absolutely gorgeous. The floor plan and layout are perfect for a beach home. One of the best beaches (maybe THE best!) in Eleuthera is literally steps away. We started and ended each day on the covered porches of Whel Appointed, looking at the beautiful, azure blue waters of French Leave Beach. The owners really care about you and your enjoyment of their beautiful home. We already booked Whel Appointed for our next vacation, shortly after we arrived for this visit. It is that nice. Can't wait to go back!
