Overview

About the property

4 Bedrooms, 3 Baths, Sleeps 12

Welcome to Moonflower! This newly renovated beachfront home sits on Gaulding Cay, one of the most beautiful beaches in Eleuthera. Gaulding Cay Beach, on the Caribbean side of Eleuthera, features famously calm water and beautiful sunset views. This 4 bedroom, 3 bath house is stylishly decorated with native Bahamian artwork, local paintings, and paintings from Mallorca. Bedrooms feature custom headboards and other custom furniture. The bedrooms are named "Star", "Horseshoe", "Anchor", and a 4th bedroom still awaiting a name.

"Star" bedroom features a breathtaking ocean view with direct deck access and an en suite bathroom. Star has a king bed, and an extra twin bed can be placed in the room if needed. "Horseshoe" features garden views and tropical colors. It also has a king bed. "Anchor" features garden views and direct front porch access. It has a king bed, and can fit an extra full bed and a twin bed if needed. The fourth bedroom, as yet unnamed, also has a king size bed. Moonflower also has a sofa bed available if needed.

Lounge in the comfortable Adirondack chairs on the front porch or gaze at the stars from the beautiful beachfront deck. Kayak or snorkel out to the actual Gaulding Cay. This property also features an outdoor shower and garden with more than 4 dozen young fruit trees and native flowering plants.

Moonflower is the ideal setting for a beach wedding/destination wedding. We have hosted weddings here and would be delighted to host yours. Ask us for details.

Amenities include air conditioning throughout, WIFI, flat screen TV with DVD player (but no cable TV), washer and dryer, outdoor dining area with gas grill, bicycles, two kayaks, and a paddle board.

Gaulding Cay Beach, like all beaches in the Bahamas, is public. Tourists and locals (particularly on local holidays) will visit this beautiful beach, but more often than not you will have it to yourself. As the beach access road is beside Moonflower, cars may be parked there. However, more often than not, the beach will be completely deserted and you will have it entirely to yourself. Moonflower is located two miles from the village of Gregory Town. Gregory Town has the best gift shop on the island, Pam’s Island Made Gift Shop, featuring handmade art and crafts from around the Bahamas. Nearby restaurants and night spots include The Cove, newly renovated and featuring continental cuisine with Caribbean flair and an infinity edge pool. The Laughing Lizard is a gourmet sandwich shop and art gallery. The Rainbow Inn is famous for its steaks and fresh vegetables from its organic garden. It offers live entertainment several nights a week, and is frequented by the island’s favorite musical celebrity. Also nearby is Daddy Joe’s, a local bar and night spot just down the road. A 15-minute drive takes you to The Bluff, which has the biggest supermarket on the island. A 20-minute drive plus a short water-taxi ride takes you to Harbour Island, with its many restaurants, shops, and straw market. Governor’s Harbor, half an hour away, has numerous beach restaurants.

Reviewer Comments:

Moonflower is a very spacious home and it slept our party of 9 very well and everyone had plenty of personal space. It was a short 30 second stroll from front door to toes in the sand. Gaulding Cay Beach is stunning and we shared it with just a few people during our stay. The locals like to use the beach and everyone of them were great people. We found a large conch and a couple locals cleaned it up for us and they were awesome to the kids. Moonflower is a short drive to many other beautiful beaches. We got our fuel and food from Seven Eleven in Gregory Town just a 10 minute drive away. Also, had a beautiful breakfast at The Cove Resort a short 5 minute drive away. Moonflower has everything you need for a great vacation. We enjoyed the kayak, paddle board, and other beach toys that come with the house. I wish the home would have advertised a paddle board because I shipped mine from California for a pricey fee :( I would of definitely left it at home had I known. The A/C ran great and we were very comfortable. Plenty of kitchen accessories for cooking yourself and saving some money. We found everything we needed. Lady Di was awesome!! She took good care of us and was such a blast to chat with. We purchased many of her jams and hot sauces to take home. Amazing....The owner Geeta was so nice and professional every time we communicated via email. As well, the staff at Eleuthera Vacation Rentals was spot on too... Eleuthera is a special place and I hope to make it back there some day. Our trip was one to remember and I highly recommend Moonflower and Eleuthera...Happy Travels!

Owner's Response: We are delighted you enjoyed your stay at Moonflower. We're so sorry you had to ship your paddle board. As you now know, we had no idea the house had one until you told us. The caretaker found it on the beach and left it with our kayaks, probably not realizing what a valuable amenity it is. But we have now added it to our web ads so future guests, thanks to you, will know to expect a paddle board. It was a pleasure having you at Moonflower house. Come back soon!

Reviewer Comments:

We had the most relaxing vacation ever. The Kids could walk into the shallow, clear waters in the calm Gaulding Bay. We snorkeled basically straight from the beach outside the house over to the island. Comfy home, spectacular location, and the personal touch from Lady Di (delicious home-made jam and pepper sauce, fresh bananas and papayas right off her farm ) made for a truly memorable experience. We were nine people (5 of them kids, ranging an ages from 5 to 15) and everyone had plenty of space. Bring books and games (leave the TV and wireless devices off) and unplug totally. You won’t regret it. We would love to be back in the future!

Reviewer Comments:

First time at Moonflower but the second time at Gaulding Cay so we knew the beach was gorgeous. The house is spacious and well laid out. The internet was great, even down at the beach. Everything you need in the kitchen is available and plenty of linens and blankets. Some basic maintenance is needed: - the master shower would not drain at all starting on the first day so not useable - The fan does not work in the master - The drain in the second bathroom would not drain - Two of the screens in the second bedroom would not stay in which is an issue with the bugs - We only saw Lady Di at check-in so the outside trash was never emptied and the animals scattered the trash around the yard There are only 2 beach chairs for a house which sleeps 10 which is pretty silly. The fact that the public beach access is the same road as the house is a bit annoying as we had cars in the backyard nearly every day. Not a big deal until they brought kids and hung out in the exact same spot as we were sitting Very nice house and beach and we would consider staying here again but would need some assurance that the maintenance issues are resolved

A beautiful home on a beautiful beach on an outstanding island best describes Moonflower. We have stayed in many other rentals on Eleuthera and this one is our favorite. We found our caretaker "Lady Di" to be quick to address any concerns and share with us her wonderful Pineapple Jam and Hot Sauce to boot! The folks in Gregory Town are the best and we look forward to our visit next year!

Moonflower is in an amazing location with great access to the beach and walking distance to a fun restaurant. Any issues or questions we had were handled promptly by Lady Di! There are kayaks available and the home is very comfortable! Can’t wait to come back to Eleuthera! Waking up and having coffee overlooking an amazing beach is quite a treat!
