traveler reviews for this eleuthera house rental

Five days in Shangri-la

Review submitted: April 2, 2014   Date of arrival: March 25, 2014

This house was perfect for our family. There were 6 in our group; 2 active 60+ yr olds, 2 40 somethings, and two teenagers. The boys loved the loft space, it was perfect for teenagers to have their own space, but still be around and participate in the conversation. The large deck was great for morning breakfast and reading, and was a good place for early risers to hang out while the rest of us were waking up. The long two-track road that runs in front of the house and goes along the beach is perfect for running. The beach is a short walk from the house and was stunningly beautiful. While we were there, the waves were big enough for gentle body surfing--gentle enough for all six of us to enjoy. The house was well-stocked with things you usually have to purchase when you rent a house (salt, pepper, spices, sugar, tea, etc), as well as towels, snorkeling gear, lawn chairs, etc. The location was great for us....a short drive to Governor's Harbour as well as gorgeous beaches on the Caribbean side and many more on the Atlantic side. It was also very close to the airport, but not close enough to be bothered by airplanes. Brian, the property manager, was very helpful with getting us into the house and making sure we had everything we needed. While we were there, a strong wind blew from the east, and it was great to be able to head to the sheltered Caribbean beaches.

We liked so much about our trip and our stay at Shangri-La, it's hard to come up with things we didn't like or could be improved. One of our party, me, got a lot of bug bites. I think they might have been little sand flies down at the beach, but I only seemed to notice them at sunset. There were some small flying beetles that the kids noticed at night, but frankly, I was glad they weren't mosquitos or cockroaches. There were frequent power outages, but I think this was an island-wide problem. The Wi-Fi worked well. There was no TV, which was mostly a blessing. We were visiting in the midst of the NCAA basketball tournament and would have enjoyed watching the games at home. But since there was no TV, we went to Ronnie's Hi-d-Way to watch the game, and that was one of the highlights of the trip. The local people were so friendly and warm, it was really a great time.

Recommended for: adventure seekers, age 55+, families with young children, families with teenagers, girls getaway, sight seeing

Owners response: Thank you for sharing your holiday experience at Shangri-La with other vacationers. The house is a perfect size for a large group and the variety of amenities make it very comfortable. New bedding, towels, and furniture have just recently been added to the villa. Old Bank's Road is my favourite road on the island for exploring, enjoying evening walks, or for taking a jog. Banana Beach is such an incredible beach for a variety of reasons. It sounds like everyone in your group enjoyed your day of body surfing. We are lucky to have a very professional property manager who takes great pride in sharing our home with others. As a real estate agent for Coldwell Banker, he is always available to share real estate opportunities with those who want to purchase a piece of paradise. The no see ums are a concern for me, while others in my family are not bothered at all. A good bug repellent applied at dawn and dusk when they are the most active, really helps. I'm so glad to hear that you enjoyed time at Ronnie's watching the basketball games. The Bahamian people are so friendly and welcoming to travellers. I can understand why that experience was one of your favourites. Thank you very much for staying at Shangri-La and for sharing your great vacation stories with others. We look forward to your return!

Simply great.

Review submitted: March 27, 2014   Date of arrival: March 18, 2014

We stayed for a week in a group of 5. The property is very clean and well maintained. There are ample ceiling fans to keep the air comfortable and circulating. The bedrooms also have AC units if they are required. The outside shower is nice too. We stocked up on groceries and beer the first day and cooked most of our own meals in the kitchen and on the BBQ. Groceries are a little over 5 minutes drive up the HWY. We did eat out at a few different local restaurants as well.
The nearest beach is on the Atlantic side and takes about 1 minute to get there on foot. The water is warm and very clear. Snorkeling is excellent. There are several reefs to explore. It was also very private. We saw a handful of people pass by throughout the entire week.
We had access to a vehicle and were able to tour a good section of Northern Eleuthera as well as water taxi (5$) to Harbour Island for lunch. Getting around is a breeze as there is pretty well one main road but you drive on the left side.
I would recommend this property for pretty much anyone. You can relax on any of the nearby beaches bordering the Atlantic or Caribbean. Or if you're up for exploring, you can check out Preachers Cave, the abandoned navel base, or the beautiful glass window bridge. I wish we had more time to check out the South end.
Can't wait to return! Oh, and try the hot sauces!

Owners response: Thank you for taking time out of your busy schedules to write a review for Shangri-La. As a group of five young, professionals, it's exciting to hear how much fun you had on this "quiet" island retreat. Being able to share meals and cocktails, listen to music, and just enjoy everyone's company is one of my favourite things to do while I am there. The hot sauces that you refer to must have been from Eleuthera Island Farms. They have the best salsa, home made bread, fresh vegetables, and of course hot sauces. Spending time at Banana Beach is definitely a daily activity during my stays at the house. I really enjoy bringing a cooler, beach chairs, and snorkelling gear to the beach and spending hours there. It is always as private as you noticed! It's usually so quiet, that when you do see someone coming, you wonder what they are doing on your beach! It sounds as though your group really enjoyed touring the island. Day trips to various places on the island are so much fun. I have been travelling to the island for six years now and I still have many beaches to discover. Thank you again for submitting a review. Your group of young professionals is welcome to return when your schedules allow for another vacation.

Shangri La- Paradise Found Part 2

Review submitted: March 10, 2014   Date of arrival: February 1, 2014

PART 2 of 2
Shangri La is centrally located, making it a perfect launching pad for excursions throughout the island. During our stay we drove as far north as Bottom Harbour and as far south as Rock Sound, neither trip taking more than about an hour. Everywhere we went the beaches were quiet with crystal clear water full of interesting things to see. Our girls made a list of sea creatures they wanted to encounter while on vacation and we were able to check all but one of them off our list by week’s end. On several occasions we concluded our day with a walk to the nearby Sky Beach Club Resort where we had a drink and watched the girls swim in the spectacular infinity pool.
If we are fortunate enough to return to Eleuthera we would hope to see even more of the Island. We might consider renting a vehicle with 4 wheel drive as some of the beach access roads are difficult to navigate with a standard vehicle.
We loved our trip to Eleuthera and hope to have the opportunity to return. Unlike other accommodations that function solely as a place to sleep, Shangri La made our vacation a truly relaxing and memorable experience.
