After reading the reviews online, I was skeptical about staying here, however, it was the best thing I could have done. I could have used some additional pillows for the bed, but I made out just fine. I enjoyed the sliding doors (locked from the inside), and the hammock outside. I do wish I had used them more though. The... More

Our stay here began with a non working tv and an old noisy air conditioner. The owner (who is elderly and means well but is in way over her head) then switched us to another cottage with a working tv and a "new" air conditioner. The filter on the so called new air conditioner was so filthy it looked like... More

We stayed at Laughing Bird Apartments for our 20th wedding anniversary 4/25 - 5/1 and had a wonderful experience! Nurse Jean is a warm and helpful hostess, who is a joy to spend time with. The apartments had everything we needed, and were in a great location in the town. Many of the best beaches were no more than a... More

This is a wonderful place to get some piece and quiet. The ocean is just across the street from the back door. There is lot of nature to be see on the Island. Definitely rent a car and look on trip advisor for places to eat. Ask the locals about stuff, they will be more than happy to tell you... More

We had a wonderful experience in Eleuthera with Nurse Jean. The apartments are situated in the town and it was an ideal base for discovering the rest of the island. I don't think we would have been able to see Harbour Island's pink sands one day and the wilds of fishing on the southern point of Eleuthera another day had... More

The most wonderful thing about the LB is the owner and manager - Ms. Jean (Nurse) Davies. In life you will rarely meet such an elegant, refined and warm person as Jean. This is the primary reason I have returned many times. The beach is good in front of the hotel. You have to walk a couple of meters over... More

Ms Jean Davis is a sweet bahamian lady who knows everyone in Eleuthera. Staying at her place for 5 days gave us an insight into Eleuthera we would not have had otherwise. Walking distance to bakery, grocery, restaurants, Cupid Cay, souvenir store, police station, beach. Located in the quaint and colonial Governor's Harbour. We drove the whole island in search... More

April 2013 We stayed at the Laughing Bird for 9 nights this April. It was a wonderful place for us as a base from which to explore Eleuthera. The small apartment was roomy for the two of us with a small kitchen, a bathroom and a living/bedroom large enough to include a chest of drawers, chairs, a love seat and... More

We had never been to the Bahamas and were unprepared for the more simple apartments in Governor' Harbour. After fleeing from one very dirty and insect infested hotel room that we booked months in advance we found The Laughing Bird with the help of the extremely kind local citizens. It was cleaner, less expensive, and the hostess (known to all... More
