Still smiling from a great week at Spencer and Rosemary's Sea Side Villas.
It is just like the pictures. Steps from the water and very nice accommodations. We truly felt blessed to be at this beautiful island with miles of beaches to just ourselves.
The fun adventure began with Spencer picking us up at airport (bargain), letting us rent a car from them (again bargain), proceeded to the villa.The villa was perfect and clean. From there, we went to many beaches, snorkeling and soaking up the sun.
We were shocked how unspoiled and remote this island is. No large chain grocery stores, fast food (just quaint seaside cafes and grills), or large hotels. No tourist trap type places.
I would highly recommend this to anyone wanting a different vacation from the usual touristy all-inclusive vacay. Just be prepared for almost double the gas and food prices than the US. Also,DEET insect repellent is mandatory.
We loved this place
I stayed here(Seabreeze with 1 bedroom in consist of 4 units) for 3 nights and it was safety and clean villa.
Although it wasn't big villa, it have enough space for 2 people in one room.
I think you cannot swim in the Caribbean Ocean in front of the villa, but there are many place to swim in the island.
I strongly recommend you to swim in the Ocean Hall located in Rock Sound.
Mr and Mrs Thompson were very kind to let us use thier snorkels freely and rent a car with reasonable price.
I think you need a car to stay there more than 2nights.
Mr Thompson picked us up at the North Eleuthera airport and took us to villa with also reasonable price (it may be much cheaper than taxi).
Because it's located in the center of the island, you can easily move to southern part and to northern part in around 1-1.5 hours for each by a car.
It was good travel for us with the villa and Thompson family, thank you.
The Thompson's were super accommodating. Definitely great hosts. The apartment was super clean and completely adequate. It was however very small so if you are the type to need space to spread out, it may not be the right fit. The view was beautiful and since we were the only ones there, it was truly peaceful. I would return to this rental if I were to visit Eleuthera again. Also, the added car rental was also very convenient plus for a reasonable fee Spencer will pick you up and drop you off from the airport. (About an hour drive). They made it easy!
Wow. I'll start off with the service. The proprietors Spencer and Rosemary were most welcoming. They picked us up free of charge from the GHB airport, rented us a vehicle for a reasonable price with no deposit fee because we were staying at their rental place, upgraded our vill from a one bedroom to a two bedroom for FREE, dropped us back to the airport for FREE. Listen to me, the service was beyond excellent. Anything we needed they were able to assist us with including OFF spray. Next I'll talk about the location of the villa. The villa is right off of the Queen's High in the settlement of Palmetto Point which is in Central Eleuthera. The Thompson's own a convenience store thats a 2 minute drive from the villa. The villa is very secluded. There are restaurants in the settlement and more in Governor's Harbour whih is about a 7 minute drive from the villa. beach front property, with a view from any window. Now I'll talk about the villa itself. Very clean feels like home, evertging is super clean. Nice ammenities, including stove, sink, washer and dryer, hair dryer, wifi, television, air-condition, games, books, high-top chairs, counter tops. Doesn't sound like heaven yet? Outside patio with chairs and tables and a grill on the beach. I hope I didn't forget anything. Just know that everything was AMAZING, you wont ever regret staying here. Price was reasonable also.
