ten bay beach area

we have rented 'Georgie's gale' for two weeks in march and we were told that snorkeling was great right off our deck over the water, also along the rocky shoreline up to the beach. would you know if this is right? we have also rented a car, will it do for exploreing the island & beaches? can't wait until we are on the island and in the water!!!

We were there over Christmas and stayed on the bay. The snorkeling was amazing! Saw octopus, rays, zillions of small fish and numerous large fish, sea turtles and dolphins. The sand dollars are everywhere and so are the star fish. It could not have been better.

Did you stay at Georgie's gale in March of 2008. We are interested in going there and would like to know what your opinion was. Thank You, Rosewray

I had had my mind made up on a house on the Atlantic side then saw Georgies Gale. Just looked at it tonight what a coincidence. Anyone out there who has stayed there?

we stayed at Georgie's Gale last March,it is a great house.The snorkling was great along the shore.Make sure you take your time and check out under the rockey over hangs.we saw a great varity of fish including large groupers and a lion fish( careful of lion,very poisoness and will stand its ground) we found it easier to go in from the beach with snorkel gear on,the ladder rungs were too narrow and hard on the feet. we could not ask for a more beautiful spot, the deck over the water with the night light is amasing, we saw sharks twice and lots of rays. the caretaker(Arthur)is great and we rented a car from him. make sure you use the garbage disposal in the sink for organic waste; we found out the hard way what happens with heat and flies. there is a book in the house on the beaches of Eleuthera, we used it too find all of the most beautiful beaches we have ever seen anywhere. I think we were able to get to most of them. we loved this island and its people. the owners of the house of this house were great to deal with.one more thing take a good insect repelent, the noseeums really bothered me but not my husband. hope this helps a little. if I can answer any other questions feel free to ask. have a great trip.

Hi baysider, I will agree with everyone else, the area is beautiful! We stayed at Ten Bay but at Walker's cottage, loved every minute of it, it felt like you were home. We will be back again in April, just after you. We rented a jeep, but saw alot of people going to lighthouse beach with cars, it is a bit rugged, but they made it. If you have any other questions feel free to PM me. Cheers, Deb

What happened? We're looking to rent a small cottage along the bay in a couple of weeks. Was it a home or car that was robbed?
