“A little slice of Heaven...”

The house and the location are all the things that other reviewers have praised. You might want to read the long review, entitled “Secluded Paradise, before this one because it contains a great amount of accurate and interesting information about the house and where it is. Zion’s website and many reviewers list the house’s amenities and it’s no exaggeration to say that it is magnificently and fully equipped.

We were a family group of seven adults and three children (a four-year old and twin babies, three-months old), and we rented the house for two weeks in February. Its layout is simple but most effective. In the shape of an E, without the middle piece, it faces the ocean. The two wings contain the six bedrooms and bathrooms and are anchored by the huge kitchen and living room. In the center of the E is the pool and seating area, thus easily accessible from every room in the house.

All the rooms have glass doors and sliding screens. This was particularly good for our family because we could see in an instant where our four-year old was and make sure an adult was with her when she went into the pool. Broad steps lead down from the pool to a charming seating area under a white wooden pergola. From here, there are a few more steps down into the ocean. This is a particularly lovely spot for reading or, caressed by the ocean breezes, simply gazing out over the turquoise and dark blue water.

The size of the house and this charmed area give a large party, such as ours, plenty of space to be separate from time to time, which adds to the appeal.

The house is at the end of a long road, branching off Queen’s Road—the main highway—on the Atlantic side of Eleuthera at Savannah Sound. The water, sheltered by the long, narrow island of Windermere, is calm but cooling breezes come in from the opening to the Atlantic Ocean at the southern end of Windermere Island, so there is a constant and refreshing breeze. When you look around you see no one; you have this enchanted spot to yourselves.

The shoreline is old, blackened coral but there is sand at the foot of the steps leading down into the water and also at the slipway for the four canoes—two of them with glass-bottoms—that come with the house. (Fins, snorkels, and masks are also provided.) Once in the water, there is sand underfoot and when the tide is low you can walk along the shore and even to a small mangrove island.

A tip for travelers. On Sundays, virtually everything closes—the Bahamians are great church-goers—but there is a Shell gas station in Governor’s Harbour that is open until 2:00 pm and a supermarket, just behind it, which is open until 5:00 pm. Most grocery stores and gas stations only take cash ($1:00 Bahamian equals U.S. $1:00), but there are an adequate number of ATM machines for withdrawals.

Craig, the owner, was most gracious and wonderfully helpful in all our dealings with him. He is rightly proud of his property and went out of his way to answer our questions and meet our needs. We have some experience of renting out our own house in Newport, Rhode Island, and, for what it is worth, we think he has the right approach, as well as perfect manners, to attract and please tenants.

Sheri, his local assistant, was also a great help. She met us at the Rock Sound airport, the nearest one to the house, and provided a rental van. She also sent her daughter up to Governor’s Harbour, in the center of Eleuthera to pick up our daughter who arrived later on a different flight.

What is truly magical about Zion House is its combination of qualities that provide its occupants with an unparalleled blend of comfort, tranquility, and contentment. It is a tropical sanctuary, an island haven of peace.

We gathered our family of 11 at Zion Bahamas to celebrate our 50th wedding anniversary, and it was the perfect spot! The beautifully designed villa and its oceanfront surroundings were breathtaking. We enjoyed the large common spaces all together, appreciated the comfort that each en suite bedroom provided, and relished all of the amenities - having the use of so many kayaks and paddle boards was amazing! The pool was also a huge hit with our youngest grandchildren.

Craig and Fatima couldn't have been more helpful answering our many questions as we planned our trip. Once we arrived, Sheri was so welcoming and made us feel right at home. We had Chef Devaughn prepare a meal for us, and it was beyond delicious.

We also appreciated the well-stocked cupboards with Keurig cups for coffee, spices for cooking, and even laundry detergent, sunscreen, and insect repellent - all of which came in handy.

“Paradise”
Reviewed 16 June 2017 for a stay in May 2017

Zion is amazing! Stayed for 7 nights with a big group and felt that was not enough time. There is so much to do at Zion and it felt like home to us. Would highly recommend it if you are interested in getting away and staying in the Bahamas.

It's official! Staying at Zion Bahamas in Eletheura was by far the greatest trip I have ever been on. Having travelled to numerous Caribbean islands and stayed at several renowned resorts, I can honestly say that nothing will ever be as amazing as this vacation. To start, the private beach house is a dream come true. The cleanliness, privacy, and activities/entertainment available are not even comparable to any resort I have ever been on. Having shared this experience with 8 of my closest friends, there was never a dull moment and we were always exploring the amazing beach that was steps away from our rooms! Amazingly, we were able to witness dolphins, stingrays, sea turtles and reef sharks right by the shore! The privacy allowed us to blast music all day and night without worrying about close neighbours complaining! Craig and Fatima gave us the ultimate Eletheura experience by providing us with the necessary amenities and information on hidden gems and events! I highly recommend spending a Friday night at the local Fish-Fry! Incredible food and music and even more incredible locals will ensure the authentic Bahamian experience! To say that Zion Bahamas is a perfect island getaway is an understatement! You just have to go see it for yourself!

This place is absolutely amazing. The owner Craig treated our group like family and showed us all around the island. Everything about this place was amazing and definitely the best vacation I've ever been on. I would definitely come back to the Zion.
