About Scott or Tracey

'Eleuthera is not for Everyone' is a popular saying on the Island. Father of identical twin 18 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 or Tracey purchased this house in 2004

Why Scott or Tracey chose Eleuthera

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,

optional: Cook

Private Beach - Fresh Water Infinity Pool with shallow and deep ends

Several hammocks - 6 Kayaks including 1 double -

wireless internet at house and pool - Direct TV - A/C in all rooms - towels & linens

Words can't say...

  • 5 of 5

Words can not say just how much fun we had and how lovely this house and property were! I took my husband, three girls, their three guys and three grandchildren for a week and we had the best time! We've been renting vacation homes and vacationing together every summer since our girls were in elementary school and everyone agreed this was the BEST house we've ever stayed in! So much room, so many "toys" to play with and, really, what could top the beautiful views everywhere? We really didn't want to come home and hope to return again soon. Scott, Ernie and Tracy were so helpful from responding to numerous questions before our trip to stopping in to check on us and even preparing us amazing meals! I saw reviews where folks said to have Tracy cook for you but I thought with our houseful of picky eaters that it just wouldn't work for us. Was I wrong! Tracy was happy to accommodate every desire and wish with a smile! You just HAVE to have her cook for you when you are visiting! We usually just use the house as a base to sight see from but everyone agreed that we had no need to go anywhere! The house had the best beach, snorkeling, pools, best accommodations and so much to do right there. We did visit the Queen's Baths and another beach or two but every time we came back to the house we said, "why did we leave? We've got all we need right here!". We had lovely "cleaning fairies" visit the house twice during the week which was great! The joys of a hotel without the claustrophobia of a hotel. All in all-a great week of many memories that we won't forget! Thanks to Scott, Tracy and Ernie-you guys are the best!

Spectacular place, hope to return again sometime.

  • 5 of 5

Wow, this property is better than anything we expected, even after reading all the great reviews. I don't think the pictures on the listing do it justice. We visited in March 2016 and had two families with 4 adults and 6 children (ages 11-17). There was something for everyone. The kids loved the paddleboards, kayaks and water trampoline. The pools were a big hit as well. The pool house with refrigerator was great. There were plenty of chairs and loungers to sit at on all levels. Sunsets were great to watch from the patio on top of the pool house. We also played a lot of Bocce on the grass lawn.

We thought we would be spending most of our time over at Gaulding Cay, which is a short walk away, but the private beach was perfect. There was plenty of snorkeling within walking/kayaking distance. Snorkeling was great for the kids who weren't really experienced snorkelers. They could see a large variety of fish in a safe environment that wasn't too deep. Glass Window Bridge was a short kayak trip away.

The house was perfect for our families. Lots of room to hangout with great views out every window or from any of the many porches. Generally we spent almost all our time outside.

Ernie and Tracy were also great. We definitely recommend having Tracy cook for you at least once. We had a great meal and she accommodated all the unique dietary requirements from picky kids to food allergies. Everyone loved Ernie who was a daily presence and full of great knowledge and stories. He took us cliff diving, to hatchet caves and to see his pineapple farm.

We had never stayed in the North before but really enjoyed it. The restaurants were great. We ate at Daddy Joe's, Rainbow Inn and Laughing Lizard and recommend all three. As for activities we did Queens Baths, Surfers Beach, Harbour Island, Preachers Cave, Preachers Cave Beach (one of Ernie's Favorites), and Sapphire Hole. Sapphire Hole was very cool and a lot of fun. All of these were very convenient from Sunset Villa.

North Eleuthera Shopping Center was about 25 minutes away and was a well stocked supermarket (at least relative to other Eleuthera supermarkets). There are multiple smaller stores in Gregory Town (including the 7 to 11) for quick needs. Island Made Gift Shop in Gregory Town was also very nice.

We would definitely recommend this property and hope to return again sometime.

Fantastic

  • 5 of 5

This amazing property couldn't be any better. The property was clean & definitely well maintained! Having the kayaks on the property was amazing! All of us used them a lot! The water trampoline offered hours & hours of fun relaxation...we're all adults, we didn't bounce. We enjoyed a few cocktails & soaked up the sun on it! The infinity pool was so relaxing with beautiful views. We did have more clouds & rain then sun, but it didn't matter. We still managed to keep busy or not.

It's a nice short walk to Daddy Joe's, Queen's Bath & a little further to The Glass Window bridge. I would recommend a car rental. Visit Harbor Island. Everyone is so friendly. Eat at Bahama Coffee Roasters! So good! Watch out for the golf carts! There everywhere!

But the best part of the vacation was....ERNIE!!!! We can't say enough about him. He's so kind & will do whatever he can to help you enjoy your stay. He arranged travel for us to go to Harbor Island. He took a small group of us to explore caves & cliff jump. He took another small group to surfers beach. He arranged a fishing trip for some of the guys. He gathered fire wood for us & we all sat around one night in the Adirondack chairs for a fire looking out over Gaulding Cay. He had us all intrigued with his island stories & knowledge. Thank you Ernie from all of us in NH & Mississippi. We hope to see you again!

And THANK YOU Scott we hope to visit again. It's a beautiful spot.

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!!!

Owner's Response: So sorry about the ants, wasn't aware of their return. We did have that problem once before and I was able to track the ants path to the pinhole under the door where the caulk had shrunk over time. We re-caulked and have been ant free for years. I have already asked Ernie to track and seal.

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
