We are 2 girls in our mid-20s and we just returned from our trip to Eleutera. We stayed at Surfer's Haven for 4 days. We had a tent booked on the territory, and it worked great for us - considering that we only spent nights there and were mostly hanging out around the island during the day. We had access to all the necessary facilities (outdoor kitchen, shower, bathroom, etc).
The owners - Tom and Liz - are ready to help, friendly (and not in an interfering way - so if you want to be left alone, that works too) and eco-oriented (there are a couple of rules for guests in that regard).
We also took a snorkeling trip with Tom, it was quite exciting (my 1st time). I felt a little bit scared at first, but Tom was really helpful and reassuring, and I enjoyed the rest of it.
In general, a great place to stay for the budget-minded travelers, one of the few in Eleuthera for now.
