Sea Shell is a Jewel in the Crown

  • 5 of 5

We've now stayed at 4 places in Eleuthera, and looked at 5 or 6 more in person, and Sea Shell is one of our favorites. We weren't sure what Windermere Island would be like,--afraid it might feel cut off from Eleuthera proper, but that wasn't our experience at all. Yes, it was private, and we rarely saw other people on the beach, unlike at Twin Coves, for example, where we saw Spring Breakers as well as families and multiple couples. But it made going to Rock Sound (for the airport, groceries or the blue hole) & Tarpum Bay (for fresh fish) very easy. We especially loved the view from the decks and the living room. At night when we turned on the outside lights it was such a surprise to see the palm trees lit up. Dramatically beautiful!

And...that beach! I loved walking the short but beautiful path to the beach. It was so alluring we didn't go many other places. The tides varied widely, so at low tide the beach was extremely wide. We had many excellent beach days, always with wind to keep the bugs away. A few days the wind was a bit much, but that meant sunning by the protected pool or going exploring. We went to Lighthouse Beach one day, and that was staggeringly beautiful. Not fair to compare Lighthouse Beach to anything else, but it is a commitment. Sea Shell's beach is a magnificent second.

The house feels classic. First of all, it's clear that Sea Shell is lived in by real people. Things make sense, and it's not a generic rental with minimal attention to detail.The single-story design makes getting around very easy. Every room feels nearby but the bedroom layout affords lots of privacy. The master bedroom was extremely comfortable. Two of the bedrooms are accessed only from the outside, making them removed enough from the others for quiet, but not remote. We cooked up a storm in the kitchen, which, while not new, was well appointed with everything we needed. (This has not been the case everywhere!) There are at least 3 outside patio areas facing the Atlantic, plus the pool area, so it's easy to take advantage of outdoor living.

Housekeeper Beryl generously waited for our arrival, later than we expected, and graciously answered any questions we had, and gave us the space we requested--we were happy to take care of ourselves. The owners were very easy to deal with--not a lot of fuss, and very straightforward and friendly.

All in all, Sea Shell worked very well for us, and everyone in our group would be happy to return there!

Sea Shell House was lovely

  • 5 of 5

Sea Shell House was so lovely. The home is wonderfully stocked and the caretaker, Beryl, so helpful and kind. Very comfy beds, very nice furnishings and a wonderful pool that our four-year-old loved. The third bedroom is detached so is nice for older kids or other family friends/family members. The beach access was so quick and easy and the beach gazebo a perfect cool lounging spot. We will definitely be back!

Favorite Vacation Spot

  • 5 of 5

We stayed in this lovely house with our four children over Spring Break. It was exactly as pictured in the photos - spacious, beautifully furnished and overlooking what we believe is the most beautiful beach there is. You have miles of white sand and turquoise water, all to yourselves. The property was well maintained with plenty of relaxing spots whether by the pool, on the terrace or gazebo by the beach. The layout of the house was great with adjoining bath rooms for all the bedrooms. The housekeeper was very attentive to our needs and the owners were very responsive to any questions we had. We would highly recommend this house.
