The house is the perfect spot for anyone looking to get away from everything. It is the last house on the road and we never saw another person while we were there. The little beach beside the house was perfect for relaxing, reading, and looking out at the aqua water. The house itself is perfect for 2-4 people and kitchen had everything we needed to cook. Highly recommend

Your house is AMAZING! We had the most relaxing time, kids loved their little private beach, we took day trips to the local beaches and Gregory town, sand bar beach was as gorgeous as I remembered, kids didn’t want to leave their private bath tub. - we could not have asked for a better break from the city, thank you so much for opening up your home to us!

 

We had everything we needed, the house was perfectly stocked with all we needed and so clean, total heaven.

And now we’re back in freezing NY, but the memories will definitely keep us going for a while.

My wife and I spent a perfect week at the Getaway in July. The house and grounds are really neat and clean and the house has everything you could need. The island is isolated and safe and the people are friendly. We could have went the whole week without seeing another person if we would have wanted to. A beautiful location with your own private beach just like in pictures. I didn't know places like this actually existed. The owners were easy to deal with too

Amazing stay at the getaway, cant wait to return. Nice cozy home with all the necessary things you would need during your stay. Nice beach once you get past the outcrops,which we didn't really mind as it felt like natural beauty. Found star fish, shells, sea glass and sand dollars Snorkeling on the beach. Kayaks where fun as well. Away from it all so you can really relax and feel your stresses melt away. Aside from food and wanting to explore the island we really could have stayed right there the entire trip. The road to the property and end of drive way could use some rebuilding but will definitely not stop us from returning hopefully soon. Cant wait!

...what a fabulous place. It is just what we wanted and needed. Thank you so much for sharing it......The perfect place to shut down and recharge and heal. We are so grateful for the opportunity.

We spent our 18 days at Getaway doing a whole lot of ‘nothing' – sunbathing, swimming, kayaking, reading, eating, sleeping, catching up on ‘House of Cards’ and Wes Anderson flicks. It was exactly what we both needed after a run of very challenging years. The quiet location at the end of the road, far from everything, is so lovely and so ideal for a restorative vacation. The house itself is so well designed, with the screened porches running the length of both front and back. We hardly used the A/C, opting instead to keep all 8 sets of french doors opened wide to the delicious breeze and the sound of the water. We only used the A/C on a few very still nights, when keeping the doors open would have let the no-see-ums in.

The house is well supplied – beach towels & lounge chairs, lots of good books and movies, washing machine, a reasonable range of kitchen equipment. My one and only complaint is the sort of crummy plastic dishes and drinkware. My husband and I both found it odd, as though we weren’t to be trusted with glass or china. It’s a minor complaint, but an upgrade in that regard would bring my rating up from 4.9 stars to 5. : )

We only rented a car for the first week, so we were able to provision up from the stores in Bogue and on Harbour Island (Cap’n Bob’s Market and DaVine Wines on Harbour Island were awesome) and didn’t need the car for the rest of our stay. If one shops thoughtfully, it’s entirely possible to do without a car all together and instead rely on one of the local Taxi services. It’s $70 to Boque and back which, compared with $80/day for a rental car that sits in the driveway unused most days, could be a smart option for someone looking to save some money

We can tell it takes real care and a real concern for those who stay at Getaway. For which we applaud you, Tim. We've stayed at many houses in the Bahamas and in the Caribbean and we can say, without exaggeration, that this one was one of the best.

Everything one needs for a comfortable and tasteful stay, whether one week or many, is pleasurably provided. We loved the kayaks and were on them every morning on that great peaceful, immaculate sea. Thanks for all the entertainment facilities and the maps and island information. And let us just steer any future renters to a couple of real wonderful people who enhanced our stay beyond expectation. They are Phil Neily and Karen Knowles in Current. Phil has the boat and Karen does the care of the house. Both longtime citizens of the Settlement of Current, and both part of the reason for an enhanced stay at Getaway. Thank you Karen and Phil for your friendship and your talents.

I can testify about how great it is there. I'm glad this beautiful space is offered as a Getaway.

We had a wonderful time at Getaway in Eleuthera.  The house was better than what we expected and we really appreciated that the kitchen was stocked with so many gadgets, etc.  We would definitely be interested in a return visit sometime.  The island was wonderful.  Thank you!

We had a fantastic time....Getaway really is a little corner of paradise.....we absolutely loved it!  The house was lovely and had everything we needed.  To wake up in the morning and just wander out the back door to the crystal clear, warm ocean was amazing.  The kayaks were great, we often paddled around on those and used them to head up the coast towards the little house on the rocks where the snorkeling was good.  Lots of good shells, sand dollars, etc to be found and we managed to get quite a few of them home without breaking them.  I found a big crawfish but I couldn't get him out from under a big rock!.....it was one day early for the season as well......  The Beaches of Eleuthera book was very useful......we visited several other beaches. Preachers Cave beach was glorious and we had it all to ourselves. We snorkelled at the Twin Sisters rocks (Near Glass Window Bridge) where we saw lion fish, rays and a large boxfish.
