My boyfriend and I stayed recently at The Duck Inn. We reserved the stay with the Duckworths via email. Kay responded promptly to me. She reserved the "honeypott" cottage for us. It was only a ride of 15 minutes from the GH's airport and its location is amazing. Very near a supermarket, a bakery, a liquor store, restaurants, beaches (you... More

When we arrived at Duck Inn we were not expected. Seems our reservation had been lost. We were later told that we had listed it under two names and it was our fault. I do not believe we were to blame as we made two other hotel reservations in the same trip with no issues. Luckily the room we requested... More

I've been to the Duck Inn several times. These days I don't have time to take many vacations. In my younger days I traveled all over Europe, the US and Asia. I've visited, and lived in many places, but the Duck Inn is the one place I keep going back to. The accommodations are comfortable and welcoming. The owners are... More

The Duck Inn has more charm in it's proverbial, "Little Finger," than anywhere I've been. The rooms are quiet and well decorated in island style. The location over looking Governors Harbor is perfect and the owners, the Duckworths, are perfectly accommodating. I've traveled all over the world and there are good places to visit and bad. The Duck Inn stands... More

I traveled to Eleuthera with 2 good friends for a quick getaway full of snorkeling, relaxing on the beaches, and exploring the island. It seemed tricky to find a good spot for the 3 of us until I messaged John and Kathy—their accommodations at the Duck Inn were perfect for us, and they were wonderful hosts. We stayed in "Honey...

Stayed here for four nights in January of 2014 with my partner in the Honeypot, the upstairs large studio space. It's a great space, cleverly divided to give the sense of a separate sleeping and living area. Everything was clean and in good shape. There's a lovely deck overlooking the bay where the sun sets. There was daily maid service... More

What a pleasant surprise this place is. Located in the middle of Eleuthera right in Governor's Harbour we stayed in the Honeypot. The place was really very originally decorated by the owners. It is very clean, has all the necessary things in the kitchen and John was always there to help out with any help or question we had. We... More

Myself and my family spent a week in Eleuthera during past August. We stayed at DUCK INN and I highly recommend it to everyone. Nice owners and perfect location to explore up and down the island, as we did. We had Cupid's cottage where the view to the bay is fantastic and in the evening you can sip your beer... More

We have just returned from our third visit to Governors Harbour, staying at the Duck Inn and cannot recommend it highly enough. Both Hunnypot and Cupid's Cottage are very comfortable and in an unbeatable position overlooking the Harbour itself. You can sit on the balcony and watch spectacular sunsets over the Harbour which usually contains several sailboats at anchor. The... More
