Hello Travel Peeps, The pictures of the house are 7 years old. This furnishings of the house are NOT like the pictures. The owners allowed the house to be rented filthy, unsanitary and unsafe. The 'COVID' cleaning was not evident but we were charged. There was NO Palapa as shown in the advertised pictures, NO ladder to safely get out of the water as shown in advertised pictures, the furniture wasn't as pictured, the small appliances had bugs in them, the oven pilot light wouldn't stay lit, nails popping up all over the deck, missing screws so deck chatters up and down as you walk on the deck, broken lounge furniture was still left out to use. Don't go barefoot on this deck! We wouldn't rent this 'Villa' again. The house had spiders and I was bitten by one as we found it dead in our bed the next morning. This bite was worse than the no-seeums. We felt this owner used FALSE advertising. You may be saying, why was there so many 5 stars? Because the views and the water are phenomenal. Unfortunately, we didn't need to rent this house to get those views and water. I asked the owners what could be done to remedy these issues and I received a no response after 5 days. Skip this rental, you'll be glad you rented somewhere safe for your family. I wouldn't recommend this home to anyone with small children either. The way to get into the water is unlevel with gaps in the walkway and no safe way to get into the water. The Bahamas and Eleuthera were fantastic. The people are warm and lovely.

Flew the family into Governors Harbour for an extended weekend. Arthur the house manager was there to pick us up and help us get acquainted with the island. You may want consider getting fruits and vegetables on the way to Bahama Villa since they are not permitted through customs. Note, groceries and fuel (if you do a rental car from Arthur or Naaman) are more expensive than in the states, but the rum is cheaper! You may also want to buy one-gallon jugs of water if you plan to be out on the water (kayaking, boating, or exploring the island). Thankfully, while at Bahama Villa there is a large water dispenser (think water cooler) in the living room with refillable five-gallon jugs that can be purchased/swapped at the small grocery store where you get the vegetables and fuel. As if Eleuthera isn’t remote enough, one gets an even greater sense of privacy and remoteness when traveling the final stretch of road and driveway that leads to Bahama Villa. The property itself is hidden from the small rugged road by a large piece of ancient coral, now overgrown by lush vegetation. All of the tropical plants and trees give you confidence that this is the most private property around. Contrast this with once you are inside the house and your eyes are drawn to a perched view of Ten Bay’s 50 shades of blue and pink sand beach. Wow! Bahama Villa Is essentially an elevated peninsula that extends your porch and hammock out from the properties that exist on either side. This is an amazing location! We turned off the A/C one day and just did the ocean breeze, grilled fresh caught fish, and lobster on the gas grill and listened to island tunes coming through the WiFi. My wife, is a convert. No more resorts for us. If one comes here with the understanding that this is an island and not a hotel, you will have no problem enjoying the Bahamas the way it was intended.

We rented Miss Ruby and the cottage over Christmas 2017. The house was exactly as in the photos. The manger,Misty, was at the house to greet us even though our flight had been delayed and she was very nice and helpful. She even had a tree decorated with Christmas lights and some stockings and candy canes for the kids. The house was very clean and the property was great. The kids loved the pool. There could have been a few more baking pans, possibly some spices, and some of the beds squeaked. We really enjoyed our stay at Miss Ruby and would rent this villa again.

I stayed at this lovely home with my 8 year old son, husband, and mom. We had an absolute blast. First, we had some issues with the home such as the telephone not working and the refrigerator and wifi being out; however, we travel the world and we understood that being on an Island has different expectations from washington DC. So we sat back and just enjoyed the ride. Arthur worked hard to fix the problems and the owners went out of their way to make sure we were taken care of for the issues. Back to the home, we would love to come back to this haven. This was the best beach for us. My husband and I are avid scuba divers (having dove in Bali, Sri Lanka, all over the Carribean), we wanted to get our son comfortable with snorkeling. Could not have picked a better spot. The home is on a very peaceful cove with lots of fish to see in the water. We saw the grouper, huge schools of fish, some rays, a rare bat fish, lobster, tons of crabs. We snorkeled and my son fished all day long. We rented the kayaks and enjoyed kayaking around the cove whenever we pleased. There is a short path around the house that my mother took to get the beach. We spent most of our time at the house. We did drive around the island to visit the beautiful deserted beaches. We mostly cooked at home but had some great meals. We did not get eaten alive by any bugs. Also, the owners were wonderful about answering all of my questions. The home is great for a small family or two couples. It's not fancy but we loved it and would really love to go back. The only issue holding us back is the island airline which is always late and caused us a missed connection. Grocery stores are a bit lacking but we made by with lots of visits to the nearby organic market (amazing homemade bread) and fresh fish from the fish monger (its 1 man in a beaten up dive suit)---what an experience...highly recommend it for those seeking quiet relaxation at your own pace and on island time. Especially for those of you not looking for the Nassau experience, this is the Bahamas many years ago before the tourists took over. We fell in love with Eleuthera at Serenity Cove.

Perfect location, beautiful views, great house. This home is on a rock outcropping so looking straight down from the deck, you see the Caribbean with clouds of fish. Walking down stairs you enter 2-3 ft. of water and can walk 100 ft to an almost private beach. This is on 10 bay beach offers great swimming snorkeling or just relaxing. You do need a car to explore the island and do your shopping. Restaurants are plentiful and run from gourmet to good fresh local cuisine. I'd give it 6 stars if i could.
