traveler reviews for this eleuthera cottage rental

Spectacular vacation!

Review submitted: April 2, 2014   Date of arrival: March 1, 2014

We just returned from a month long stay in the Desert Rose.

We had been to Eleuthera before but this was the first time we had been back in 8 years
Barbara, the owner, was a joy to work with. She was responsive, helpful and the entire rental transaction was handled over the internet...hassle free.

Once there, we met David, the caretaker, who took care of any questions we had and checked in several times with us over the month to see that everything was going ok.

The Desert Rose is located midway between the northern and southern tips of the island, so it is a good base from which to visit beaches and points of interest in both directions.

Desert Rose is located on a small bluff overlooking the ocean. It is clean, well furnished and maintained while being equipped with all the conveniences one could need.
You go to sleep and wake up each day to the sounds of the ocean. Although air conditioned, we kept our windows open the entire time and were never uncomfortable. Virtually every morning we had coffee on the deck, watching the sun rise and enjoying a spectacular view of the ocean, a few steps away.

Sometimes we 'd go into Governors Harbor, travel the island a bit or just decide to grab some rays, read a book and stay right there.

We liked it so much there that, before we left , we scheduled another 2 week stay in 2015.

Some say, Eleuthera, its not for everyone. Obviously they have never been to the Desert Rose.

We loved it there.

Private, cozy, beautiful, well equipped.

Review submitted: February 4, 2014   Date of arrival: January 25, 2014

Desert Rose is a great vacation home. We enjoyed a superb week in paradise. We had a private beach all to ourselves (there is the potential for neighbors, but none were present during our week). We played in the sand, lounged in the sun, and explored the northern half of Eleuthera with ease and comfort.

Desert Rose is well stocked with gear and necessities. It also has various supplies to make life convenient. We used the beach chairs, snorkel gear, beach blankets, sand toys, pack-and-play, and water dispensers.

The master BR is good size. The children's bedroom is small, but has two bunks. The house is not baby proof, but it's easy to keep an eye on your child in the open atmosphere of Desert Rose.

The selection of books and DVDs is extensive. It made breakfast and dinner with a toddler much easier.

Food on the island will be twice as expensive as food in the USA. Aside from the major resorts, no one accepts credit cards, so bring plenty of cash. Rent Barbara's Nissan Pathfinder, as it is in good shape and very convenient.

Try out Sky Beach Club, Harbour Island, Valentine's, The Cove at Eleuthera, and the Eleuthera Supply store in Governor's Harbor. Haynes Library has internet for a $5 donation. The free medical clinic in Lower Bouge is well supplied and has modern medical practitioners, if you need health care.

Barbara is very well organized and will try to make your trip wonderful. She is a great owner/operator.

Desert Rose is great for couples and families alike. If you want peace and quiet and convenience, at a good price, you will be happy to stay at Desert Rose.

A Perfect Vacation at Desert Rose

Review submitted: December 22, 2013   Date of arrival: December 7, 2013

We were very fortunate to have selected Desert Rose for our two-week vacation on Eleuthera. All arrangements and communications with Barbara, the owner, went smoothly. We also rented the owner's SUV which was very convenient. Our contact on the island, Mr. Rolle, was very nice; he also provided prompt transport to and from the airport. The well-appointed cottage, located on one of the most beautiful beaches, had everything we needed for the PERFECT vacation. My husband loved snorkeling around the nearby reefs. We walked the beach for miles every day seeing only a few friendly people during our stay. The constant breezes and sound of the ocean waves was priceless. Thank you, Barbara, for sharing your home with us.
