About

Location
Service
Mika's Resort is a modern luxury property located on the Atlantic side of Eleuthera, only a 7 minute drive from GHB airport and about 15 minutes from downtown Governor's Harbour. Our oceanfront Casitas are equipped with a kitchenette including a mini-fridge, microwave, and place settings and a private bathroom with shower. Our luxury Penthouse offers stunning ocean views with a private balcony, living room, full kitchen, and bedroom with spa bath. Thoughtful amenities throughout include spa quality Comphy brand bedding, custom skin care products, and a community kitchen in our main house where guests are welcome to cook their own meals. Guests are also free to enjoy our virtually private pink sand beach! Mika's Resort is a family-owned business where you are treated like family. We are not a hotel. We run our place more like a bed and breakfast where you have the freedom to move around the property like it's your own. We are off the beaten path and like to think of our place as a quiet, private getaway with a paradise beach feel.

An absolutely beautiful setting! When we pulled up it was like looking through a picture window, and the view from the actual window of our casita was the same! One of the most gorgeous settings. The beach was beautiful, you’re in a tropical paradise. We had to shorten our trip and Yaya was super accommodating. It’s remote, so be prepared for that, but if you want to get away and truly relax it’s perfect. There is a restaurant you can walk to, The Deck and it’s a very cool spot. It would be a great place for a group of couples/big family.

We booked a last minute trip to Eleuthera for Jan 2021 literally 4 days before arrival, a place that I wanted to visit for a while now and Mika's was on my radar for some time by then as well as the place to stay at while visiting this beautiful island - what appealed to us at first were the the 3 things: it was new and clean, it had a nice "central" location on the island to explore Eleuthera, and it was reasonably priced. We found more than that and you can read about it below, we loved it! Location: Let me point out one important thing here - if you fly into GHB the drive is just 10 minutes, if you fly like we did to ELH (and similar from RSD in the south) in the north the drive is about 1h - we had no option but it we enjoyed the road trip a lot, easy and scenic drive for the most part. So other than the driving distance to local airports the key info you may find important here is: you are about centrally located in Eleuthera, on the east side (Atlantic Ocean) and sunrises :) if the Atlantic side is "too rough" for you there is about 5 minutes north drive an excellent beach called "Receiver's Beach" so you have the best of both worlds here! Needless to say having the car is an absolute must! Hotel grounds: the hotel comprises of 4 cottages (1 and 4 are on the very front) and the main building where the community kitchen and upper floor for rent are located. On the waterfront there is also stairs leading to a small wooden beachfront patio - very cool spot to hang out after the nice walk on the beach. The hotel is located on the elevated area providing really beautiful views of the water on the east side. I would suggest to either book 4 or 1 - not only because they provide better direct views of the ocean from the inside but also because of the deck and pathways layout every time someone walks out of #1 and #4 they automatically walk in front of #2 and #3 and their very front window and bed - it's a small place so there is barely any traffic and if something it's just the guests but if you want more privacy then #1 and #4 are a better choice here, or of course the upper floor in the main building. There is a cat on the property called Tiger - I am not a cat person nor is my wife but we fell in love with the guy, I have never seen a cat looking for a human company like Tiger did, super cute! Room: we had cottage #1 and we loved it, it's tastefully decorated in a very Bahamian style! It's small but well organized, the comfy bed has beautiful views of the ocean, the shower is spacious and also provides some nice views! The mini kitchen is great with the fridge and microwave on the spot and a small coffee machine - the gallon of water is included, and a good A/C. There are some snacks and beer and soda for purchase in the mini bar/kitchen of each room. The wifi and smart TV worked great in the "lazy evenings" (if not for noseeum I would have probably spent each evening outside rather than be watching TV haha). The rooms are locked with a code and that's a great thing as you don't need to carry an extra key or card with you. The safe is in the room though wasn't attached to the wall :) but hey it's Bahamas - in our car rental 1 of the doors couldn't be closed and we returned the car on our last day on the parking lot with the keys under the floor mat... if that doesn't tell you have safe the island is and how the locals feel about it (we experienced the same in Exumas) then I don't know what else does :) Beach & views: despite being on the Atlantic side the water is actually fine to swim in, at least it was during our 5 day stay. The only problem and a very big one are the noseeum - the little flies/bugs are restless and will eat you alive :) we visited Exumas in the past and had a similar problem - they can spoil your vacation so make sure to pack enough of sprays or whatever the remedy you have for them - each time we visited the lovely Bahamas we didn't want to leave and the only thing we looked forward at home was to recover from those bites :) We enjoyed the evening walks on the beach but if "absolutely still water" is a must then go to the Receiver's Beach on the west side - it's the closest and best beach in the area, in my opinion a hidden gem here on TripAdvisor. We visited quite a few of them and some are better than others, it's all personal preference. French Leave was similar to the one on the rest so I would say skip on that one, there are better ones. Rainbow Beach was the easiest "public beach" to access, had a nice parking lot and actually some tables and umbrellas on the beach. Tarpum Bay was great to visit with the swings in the water. If you have time visit the sandbars is Spanish Wells and Russell Island - definitely worth the "self organized" easy trip up north. Food & Restaurant options: There is no food walking distance (the Deck is open just for lunch and quite "island time") but your spots to go are James Cistern (about 10 to 15 minutes easy drive north) and Governor's Harbour (about 10 minutes easy drive south). The latter has more breakfast options but if water front dining is your preference then James Cistern is your spot to go (see my other reviews of food spots we hit, there are many great we have not as well - definitely plenty to choose from!). We dined also in Rock Sound and Spanish Wells/Russell Island - I highly recommend venturing out into the island and dining in other spots of Eleuthera - Governor's Harbour as popular as it is does not provide that many food options with a view so you just want to drive along the road and check those other spots out. Things to do: you can do nothing or you can explore, we came for the first and ended up doing the latter :) not because we changed our mind but because I thought Eleuthera does not have that much to offer other than the Glass Window Bridge (which is a must!) and Queen's Bath! I was wrong! In our 5 days we drove to Rock Sound (we didn't go to Lighthouse Beach though and we thought it was still a great trip), we visited Spanish Wells & Russell Island (super easy to organize yourself, just drive to Gene's Docks and pay $5 per person one way water ferry ride that goes back and forth all the time and rent a golf cart for $10 an hour right in the docks upon arrival), we checked out the local beaches and roamed around Governor's Harbour and Gregory town. We stopped by at numerous gift shops with locally made goods and produce and we visited one of the island farms (didn't go for the pineapple tour as we had one in Antigua). There are rock caverns and blue holes to visit (we didn't), you can also go to Harbour Island (we chose SW over HI)... there is so much to choose from and at the end of the day just driving north and south is fun because it's always either green or blue - best combo ever for a road trip! Overall: I had high hopes for Eleuthera and the reality exceeded my expectations! It's a very beautiful island, with amazing people and in our 5 days we explored a lot! We drove all over the island from Spanish Wells to Rock Sound, but having to return to our seafront cottage every day was always a very pleasant part of the day! My memory for life from Mika's is the stargazing we did a couple evenings... I have never seen in my entire life so many stars and such a clear picture of the world surrounding our blue marble! I will go as far as saying it was a life changing event for me... thanks for having us Ann, Yaya & Samia and of course the "honorable assistant manager" Tiger :) !!!

OMG this place is amazing. Came with some girlfriends for a little getaway. We rented the penthouse and one of the casitas, the views from both were amazing. The penthouse has a fully equipped kitchen with other great amenities, comfortable queen size bed and a gorgeous hot/cold tub. The double light up vanity mirrors were a great touch as well. We visited several beaches, restaurants and went to the town’s Friday Night Fish Fry. The locals were very friendly and made us feel welcomed. This place is definitely a great place to go relax and unwind from the real world. You won’t be disappointed.

My husband and I just returned from a wonderful stay at Mika's Resort. The view from the room is quite dramatic and the room acts almost as a picture frame for such an amazing beach location. The selection of white, blue and soft grays in the room really make the ocean stand out even more than it does. The location was easy to find and a short drive down a road off Queen's Highway. One of the really nice things about Mika's is its location. Very easy to drive into Governor's Harbor and a very short drive to the GHB airport, where we flew out of when we reluctantly had to leave. Eleuthera is a rather long island and this location made it easy to visit both the north and south ends. Another nice touch was a lovely selection of bath and skin products to try during your stay. There is also a full kitchen available to share with other guests during your stay. We felt very lucky to enjoy this beautiful new resort before the news gets out! A wonderful treat in a location where you feel you've just been dropped in your own private oasis!
