About Patti or Tracy

'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.

Patti or Tracy purchased this house in 2004

Why Patti or Tracy chose Central 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

So WONDERFUL you will want to return again & again!!

  • 5 of 5

Christmas 2017 was amazing because all 14 of us from Minnesota, Wyoming, & Tennessee were together at Sunset Villa.

Tracy & Ernie are simply the best people you could have welcome you. Ernie's puppy, Lulu, was an added bonus & our FAVORITE potcake on Eleuthera. When our vacation ended, we were sad to leave our new friends. We asked Tracy & Sonya to prepare food for us several times, & everything was DELICIOUS!! Sonya quickly became another friend that we will miss. To say that our experience with the Bahamian people was good is an understatement.

The property has SO many amenities to enjoy. Paddle boards, kayaks, snorkeling gear, comfortable chairs, the infinity pool, plenty of beach towels, & the private beach were all used every day. The views of Caribbean underwater life were absolutely breath taking & awe inspiring!!!

WE LOVE SUNSET VILLA!!

Beyond words!!!

  • 5 of 5

I spent the first week in November at Sunset Villa with my entire family (16 total, 8 adult and 8 kids). I have been on numerous beach vacations in the past but this one was the BEST. The property at Sunset Villa was so much more then expected. We did explore the island a few days with our amazing tour guide Ernie but some of the best memories were made just hanging out at Sunset Villa. The beach and pool were perfect for our group, the adults as well as the kids( ages 18-7) it had everything they needed. We kayaked, swam, had our own family olympics and beach combed for hours. Even the weather was perfect!! The house was very comfortable for all 16 of us and had room to spare. Some of my favor nights were when Tracy cooked dinner for us. All 16 of us could sit at one table!!! Besides Tracy being an amazing cook, her smile and attitude were so nice to be around. I really can't say enough about our time on Eleuthera. We absolutely loved the secluded beaches, cliff jumping, cave exploring and the people of Eleuthera. After our first day there, we were already planning a return trip in the near future. Thanks to Ernie and Tracy for making this a vacation to remember!!

Loved loved loved it! Hoping to go back again! Ernie and Tracy were awesome! They were both very helpful. It was a wonderful vacation. We fished, cliff dove, and explored many beaches and just staying at the house offers so much -- snorkeling, kayaking, and just lounging in the beautiful infinity pool. Wonderful!!

The property is lovely and as described. Well maintained with a delightful staff available.

  • 5 of 5

We were 10 adults visiting in March and had a great time! The property is as described with many amenities. The staff is very accommodating, helpful and friendly. There are tings to do in the area if you like adventures. And hanging out at Sunset Villa is a vacation in itself. If you like to snorkel, you can right in your own private beach and around the corner. Island life is wonderful. The locals are friendly and helpful. Great food to be had.

Tropical Heaven on Earth

  • 5 of 5

Spent a spectacular week with family and friends in this home and cannot wait to return. The island is an absolute treasure, not to mention the friendliness of the people, the things to do, the breathtaking sights and total relaxation. The home is large enough for a large gathering but remains intimate so you don't feel detached from your group. The grounds are quiet, well maintained and private with so many amenities that you don't need to leave the property unless you want to surf on the other side. The home is well maintained and stocked to cook meals and enjoy each others company around the large dining table. Coffee on the deck in the morning or a walk to the waterfront is the the most beautiful way to begin your day. Just an all encompassing wonderful, relaxing time. We definitely filled our minds with beauty and many, many memories on this trip, in this house and on this island. We will definitely return!!!

Paradise awaits...

  • 5 of 5

Words simply cannot describe this property, it's amenities and the awesome owners and staff. The property is gorgeous, and as the owner states, I must agree it is Heaven on Earth. There was a group of 14 of us that stayed for the week. Not once did we feel cramped. The awesome game room/living room on the top floor was taken over by the teenagers in the group. It was perfect for everyone. The dining room table, being as grandeur as it is, was a great spot for dinner and fun.

The property is beautiful, from the vegitation, to the turquoise blue water views. There is not a lack of amenities, either. Our group snorkeled, swam in the double-layer infinity pool, kayak, SUP'd and jumped and/or layed on the water trampoline...all right on the property!

The caretaker, Ernie, was extremely accomodating and knowledgeable. Tracey is a great asset, as well as an AWESOME cook. She prepared a spectacular dinner for us ( I have to add, I have a picky eater and his plate was clean at the end of dinner!).

Daddy Joe's is a great restaurant/bar that is just a walk down the road. Highly recommended. Check out Thursday for burger night, along with great live entertainment.

Another great memory was the fishing trip the guys took with Andrew. They came back with an abundance of fish and lobster(crawlfish) that we had for dinner later that evening. GREAT experience!

The weather while we were there in January couldn't have been better. Shorts and bathing suits were the attire for the week!

I know I speak for our ENTIRE group, from the kids to the adults, we LOVED it. If you are looking for a great home to escape to...THIS IS IT. We are all ready to go back....next week?? lol
