We were at Hut pointe during December 2012 for 10 days. The place is very spacious. It is equal to a small 2 bedroom 1bath house with a kitchenette. All the appliances are provided by them in the kitchen. So, we were able to cook our food in the room, which is a lot cheaper than eating out. Governor's harbor is about 15 minutes away by car. The Inn is located right on Queen's Highway and in the center of Eleuthera Island. It can get a little noisy with the sounds of the cars passing by on the road. Cars are available on rent from the locals.The Caribbean sea can be seen from the Room. They do not have their own beach and you would have to walk/drive to a public beach. Sky Beach club would allow you to use their beach but only if you eat at their Bistro. There are ways to access the beach and to know that, you would need to have a map of the island and also to talk to the locals to get some information. Kathy, the manager of Hut pointe Inn is very resourceful and can help with information regarding the best beaches around there. A highly recommended place that is not as expensive as the other resorts.

Thank you so much for staying with us and for your review. We offer the largest, cleanest rooms on the island for the money and we are happy that you enjoyed your stay. You should have had a map in the informational book in your suite, so thank you for letting us know that you did not. The new maps are being delivered this week, so we will make sure that all of our suites have them. We hope that you will be able to stay with us again soon!

It was close to airport and other areas around town. Very quiet and quaint. The island gets a few bugs come out at night. So bring repellant. Has a nice open floor plan for entertaining and cooking meals.

Room Tip: Rooms upstairs had a beautfual view of dock and entrance to Sky Club resort

We arrived to the island one week ago and stayed in a "cottage rental" on the beach. After four days, we needed leave our rental due to numerous issues; no water, no power, no phone, no internet, no air conditions etc. Adelaide contacted us to let us a know she had a room available for my four year old son, husband and myself. We were dirty, stressed out and at our wits-end.

Upon arrival, we were greeted personally by Adelaide and Brendan who helped us carry 8 bags of luggage to our immaculate unit (6). We walked in to a beautiful stone tile and nicely decorated villa. The air conditioning was on full speed, the room was very cool and we immediate took showers. The water pressure was strong, the water warm, and the shower very large. The beds are very comfortable; bedrooms are spacious with lovely armoirs, mirrors, closets and night tables.

The entire unit was spotless, so much so, that you could eat off the floors. The property owners bent over backwards to make our stay enjoyable and showed compassion and empathy for the terrible rental and experience we had just left. We felt very safe and welcomed.

Kathy, the caretaker, personally washed our laundry, folded it and returned it to our room along with fresh and clean towels daily. She is a very kind woman and while our encounters with her were very brief, she was extremely kind and is an excellent caretaker.

The kitchen is fully-equipped, spacious and clean. All of the flatware, glasses, etc. were in excellent condition and again, spotless.

The internet never failed us once and was "American- speed". There are three different wifi connections available. The unit offers satelitte TV with movie channels, too. It was nice that the TV was only in the living room, so at night, you were able to connect and rest.

We were able to cook meals with no issues and enjoyed the location of the inn. It is inbetween Governor's Harbour (3 minute drive) and the airport (2 minute drive). If you are traveling to Eleuthera, save yourself some bug bites and definitely rent at Hut Pointe. The beachfront property we rented was a bug infestation and while we were beachfront, we explored several beaches and never frequented the beach we were on. Do not let the location deter you from renting at Hut Pointe. It is sheer perfection here! Centrally located and easy access to everything you will need or want to do.

If you come to the beautiful, majestic island of Eleuthera be sure to stop at "Ten Bay beach". It is so magnificent that when you look out to the water, it looks like glass next to the sky.

Also, be sure to book a trip with Donald, Kristel and Big Six at Eleuthera Tours to the Schooner Cays. Ask them to show you the starfish. It is a life changing and incredible adventure!

Adelaide and Brendan- THANK YOU for your generosity, love and for the opportunity to meet your beautiful family. You have been so kind to our family and we will miss you dearly. Adelaide, I enjoyed our time and talks together and hope to continue our friendship. We will be back to visit you all very soon and will tell everyone about your lovely Inn. xoxoxox

From our initial contact with Hut Pointe Inn to our arrival and departure, the experience was fantastic.

Booking the Inn was a joy, because the communication was speedy, thorough and informative.

The location on the island is central and was convenient for the activities we had planned: snorkeling and sightseeing in the north and south.

We had Unit 1, which more than accommodated the five of us adults. It was clean, large, beautiful.......

We loved it so much, it was hard for us to leave the Inn behind. We hope we can return.

Hut Pointe Inn has a great location (and a great website http://www.hutpointe.com/Welcome.html). It is close to the Governor's Harbour airport. We rented a car from Tracy Williams (1-242-335-6173) at the airport and can't imagine traveling to the island without one. From there we were able to go both up and down the island. Great restaurants within 30 minutes driving time.
Located almost across the Queen's Highway from Sky Beach club. Sky Beach has a decent restaurant and a great beach!
There is no direct beach access for Hut Pointe. It is also located on the highway so there is some vehicle noise. There was such a great breeze while we were there, we slept with the windows open and a great breeze blowing through the suite.
Governor's Harbour has 2 grocery stores. As would be expected the cost of supplies is expensive on the island. We stocked up on peanut butter, bread, fruit and chips. We also made a meal one night in the room.
Governors Harbour has a tourism office towards the other end of town. We got a fairly good map there of Eleuthera.
If you are traveling to Eleuthera by plane from Nassau - get to the airport at least 1 hour early. We encountered other travelers and experienced ourselves that if you are not there 1 hour ahead, there is a good chance you may not make your flight.

We really loved our stay at the Hut Pointe Inn. We stayed on the second floor in unit 4. We found the unit to be spotless and well maintained. The unit easily accommodated four people. The Beach is a short walk from the inn and is breathtaking . Kathy the manager is well connected on the island and can help you plan any activities during your stay. We will definitely return.

The first thing I noticed about this place was how clean it was; I swear you could eat off the floor! I had the corner unit (number 4) and when I go back...and I will...I will ask for that one again. It was large, well equiped and very bright. With windows on three sides, I had all the windows open, the AC off (although the AC works very well) and very much enjoyed the fresh air--it was hot outside but the unit was nice and cool. I spent a bit of time walking through the property; the gardens are well looked after and add to such a peaceful experience.

I was only there for a couple of days so I did not do any cooking. However the kitchen, besides being a good size, was fully equiped and I was impressed.

The owner has done up a great little information binder where she has provided all sorts of tid bits of information about the island, restaurants, places to shop and other points fo interest. It was nice to see someone take the time to do this. Even has detailed instruction for working the statalite and the TV.

I found all the staff to be genuinly friendly.

I will be back!

Room Tip: For me, I was lucky to have a corner unit. I had lots of sun in the afternoon and it was nice to ha...
