3000 SF HOME IN CENTRAL ELEUTHERA
About Laura Cloutier
We have been coming to Eleuthera for 15 years now and it is by far the most relaxing and laid back place we have ever been to. Having grown up in NH we were always looking for the ideal place to escape the cold winters, having cruised for many years we decided the busy pace of a vacation cruise was not how we wanted to spend our one week of vacation, so we started our hunt for the perfect getaway. When we first experienced Eleuthera, we were told that you either "get it" or "don't get it" and we definitely "got it!" Eleuthera captured our hearts from the first day. It was EXACTLY what we needed and what we were looking for. It is the perfect island to let go, relax, meet the locals, and enjoy the untouched beauty of a uncommercialized island. For years we enjoyed Eleuthera without bringing our children, for fear that they would hate not having constant connection to their busy worlds, but we couldn't be more wrong, once our children came they didn't want to leave and they enjoy the island as much as we do.

Ocean Breeze - Paradise on Eleuthera!
From our initial contact with Laura before booking until we arrived back home, our experience has far exceeded our expectations in every way! Laura was quick to respond to all of our questions and provided so much helpful information about the house and island to help make our stay all the more enjoyable. Their island home is gorgeous in the pictures and when we arrived, found it to be even more beautiful in person. The amenities met our every need. There was nothing we needed that wasn't there... from the extremely well-appointed kitchen to coolers, beach towels & tote-bags, beach chairs, books, dvds, sunscreen, bug repellant, and so much more! The home was immaculately clean, the beds & furniture were incredibly comfortable, and the washer & dryer are brand new. The location is secluded and private, yet restaurants and shopping are just a short drive away. The beautiful pink sand beach and crystal clear ocean water are just a few steps away.
Misty, the caretaker, contacted us a few days before we arrived to introduce herself and make arrangements for getting the keys to the house to us. She made sure the home was well lit & welcoming when we arrived after dark our first night there. She kept in contact with us throughout the week to make sure we had everything we needed, answered questions about the house and the area, and was available for taking care of any maintenance needed at Ocean Breeze. Even after returning, Laura contacted us to make sure we were happy with our stay and asked for any input about improving the house or amenities for future guests. She really went above and beyond in making sure we were satisfied with everything and was incredibly kind, helpful, and quickly responded to our messages.
The island of Eleuthera is a true gem and to stay in Ocean Breeze during our time there was the icing on the cake! We highly recommend this beautiful home for your time there and are deeply grateful to Laura & her husband for sharing their amazing home with us while we were visiting. Our heartfelt thanks to both of you and Misty for making our stay so enjoyable!
Thank you so much Kathy, we are always excited to share our home with others, especially those who have never been to the island before. We hope that you will be back to further enjoy the island and discover more about eleuthera
Had a great trip/time
Overall what a wonderful time we had, the house is amazing, beautiful view of the ocean to wake up to. Very quite location. If you are wanting a getaway retreat this is the place to go.
Thank you for your review. I'm so glad that you enjoyed Eleuthera and can't wait to have you back.
excellent place to stay
We recently stayed at Ocean Breeze and had an amazing time. It is in a great location steps away from the beach and centrally located. Laura was incredible as a host and was very timely with any questions we had. We will definitely stay again!!
Thank you Amy for your review of our home. We are so glad that you will consider staying with us again. We look forward to having you back!
We Will Be Back!
This was our first time to Eleuthera, and my first time out of the US- and we will be back! Laura was very helpful through the whole booking process. We wanted to see as much of the island as possible on our short trip, and Laura helped plan our "agenda" to make sure we hit all of the key spots and made the appropriate reservations. While we were on the island Laura checked in to be sure we were enjoying our trip.
When we arrived to the house it was immaculate! the furniture and decor were especially tasteful and looked brand new. Ocean Breeze has the most well equipped kitchen of any rental I have ever been in. We enjoyed cooking/grilling almost every night we were there! This house is stocked with anything you could need! During the day we used the snorkels, towels, and chairs provided and at night we enjoyed playing games on the rooftop deck- thank you Laura for thinking of all the details.
We were told that we were visiting during "busy season". I think we only saw 2 other people on the beach all week! The locals were very friendly and always helpful, the whole island was very welcoming. It was nice that the house was centrally located on the island, as we traveled north some days and south others- we never had to go too far. We found our way around the island easily thanks to the directions provided at the house.
Overall, this was the trip of a lifetime! We will absolutely be back. The only regret we have is that we didn't plan to stay longer. The host, the house and the island have our hearts!
Hello Matthew, I always love hearing how people enjoy Eleuthera for the first time. As you know, it's not for everyone but I'm so glad it was for you and your lovely family. Can't wait to host you all again.
The loveliest, happiest home away from home we've ever stayed in
Years of anticipation prepared my wife and I for our first visit to Eleuthera; the beautiful ocean, private beaches with pink sand, the sun and clean air -- or so we thought. The ocean is, in fact, mesmerizing, changing colors and textures before your eyes. There was NO ONE on the beach. The sun was warm and the breeze constant. This was without a doubt one of the greatest vacations of our 42 years of marriage and has left a lasting delightful imprint on us.
The warmth, hospitality and thoughtfulness of the Clouthiers cannot be overstated and is an intimate aspect of our fantastic experience. We interacted primarily with Laura Lee and her charm and her caring ways are so abundant, that I feel I've known her for years. We had an assortment of questions and received answers very promptly. The night we arrived we even got a text asking about our arrival and whether everything was ok!
When we arrived, we found Ocean Breeze to be spotless, neat and orderly. The decor couldn't be more apt for the location and all the furniture is attractive AND it's comfortable. The beach and ocean are a 30 second walk from the front step. The lovely wall hangings, paintings and touches throughout the house bespeak owners with big hearts who have genuinely opened their lovely home to share it with others.
The home is fully equipped for whatever you would like to do. We wanted for absolutely nothing. Kayaks, fins, beach umbrellas, chairs & towels, every kind of pot & pan and kitchen utensil and form of entertainment and on and on -- AND they all work!! The drinking water is delicious. The owners thought of everything. Misty, the concierge, was an enormous help especially on our first day or two.
This property is situated near other homes but we found it to be very, very private. The couple of people we saw during the week were friendly but pretty much kept to themselves. There is essentially no traffic on the road in front of the house.
While the stars, ocean and empty beaches were amazing, I was most struck by the peace and quiet. During our week I did not hear one leaf-blower, lawnmower, motorcycle, truck of any kind, loud radio or siren. The only sounds were the chirping birds, the breeze in the palm trees and the gentle ocean waves on the beach. Peace and quiet!
If you are considering Eleuthera, you will be in the best of hands with Laura Lee and Roland. We wish you a fantastic stay at Ocean Breeze.
Thank you so much Bernie for your lovely review. We are beyond thrilled that you enjoyed our home as much as you did. The peace and tranquility it brings has you longing to come back for more, there is no other place that we have been to that brings us such inner peace and we feel so blessed to have a permanent piece of heaven and to share with others who appreciate it the same way. Can't wait for you to book again with us! Stay warm and safe back home.
Lovely well-laid out home, a well-appointed kitchen, a paths walk down to the Atlantic beach
A fabulous place for two couples who love to cook, explore the amazing deserted beaches, snorkel, or just chill. Good sound system upstairs and down for your music collections. Lots of games. More card decks than you can imagine. Brand new beach chairs, beach towels, and blow up beach mattresses. A newly installed direct tv system.
We loved the early morning walks on the beach, watching the sunset on the back deck, long languishing dinners, and collaborative, if not a little competitive, canasta games at night. The Cloutiers and Misty were very supportive and responsive to any questions or concerns. Very thoughtful niceties around the house. All islanders were welcoming, personable and gracious. We give the house a five star rating, the location a four star rating only because we would have liked to have it on the beach, versus across the road from the beach.
In gratitude and appreciation for this wonderful home and island,
the Schirmer and Bevers
Thank you so much Julie for your wonderful review of our home and the island. I hope you will consider us again if you come back to Eleuthera. I’m glad you enjoyed your stay at our island home.
