My sister and I recently got engaged to our respective partners, and so the four of us celebrated with a little trip to the Bahamas. We picked the island of Eleuthera solely because we fell in love with this property listing. Now that I've been there I can say it's even better than it looks! From the deck we watched an unbelievable sunset everyday, and down at the water we snorkeled with sea turtles, eagle rays, (and a few jellyfish). We cooked some nights without issue. The kitchen comes fully stocked with utensils, tableware, pots, pans, stove, microwave, and there's a gas grill in the screened in breezeway. A few of the knives and kitchen tools were rusty from all the salt air, but we worked around it. We did all of our shopping right in Gregory Town at a small convenience store. (Be prepared for high prices on almost everything!) The outdoor shower came in handy for rinsing off the sand and saltwater before going back inside. If you rent a car, you might want to get something that's relatively high off the ground. We had a Dodge Neon, and we bottomed out a few times on the road that leads to Sea Cliff. We really had a hard time leaving, because it was so perfect. If you're considering a Bahamian vacation, give Sea Cliff your most serious consideration. Island Ann and Scott were a pleasure to deal with.
Unrelated to the property: I would advise those unfamiliar with Eleuthera to buy one of the maps for like $10 that shows where all the beaches are when you arrive, because while it's hard to get lost on Eleuthera (it's really just one long road) few of the side roads are marked. Our favorite beaches were Rainbow Beach, Receiver's Beach, and the Pink Sands Beach on Harbor Island (not to mention the water in our backyard at Sea Cliff!). Also, bring plenty of cash because not many places take credit cards. Our favorite eating experience over the 5-day trip was Daddy Joe's, north of Gregory Town.
