The house is surrounded with lush plants and fragrant tropical flowers which you can enjoy from the new outdoor shower. You will be able to hear the gentle waves on the beach just 20 yards away and awake to the whisper of the breeze rustling through the coconut trees. You can relax on the 360 degree deck, private beach or in the thatched cabana. There is BBQ area over looking the water and outdoor dinning areas on the deck, in the garden and on the beach. The house has new split- level air conditioning and a fully equipped new kitchen including a dishwasher, stove, large fridge, microwave, coffee maker, blender etc. There is a selection of videos and DVDs which can be played on the TV (there is no satelite TV).

Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.
If you have submitted a review for a holiday rental property, we may also ask that you provide us with proof of your stay to ensure that your review is attached to the correct rental property.
Holiday rental reviews collected via the VRBO website (formerly Homeaway) and syndicated to the Tripadvisor website are not currently subject to Tripadvisor’s standard moderation processes.

My wife and I stayed for a week at the Round House. We rented a car from the host, which was very convenient. There are multiple restaurants you can walk or drive to. The local beaches are great for wandering or snorkeling. The house is comfortable and the porch was perfect for relaxing. There are also cabana huts on the beach. The host was very nice and helpful. We had a great time.

We spent a fantastic week in The Roundhouse at Causarina Bay! It was the perfect location to unwind and relax. We visited several beaches on both sides of the Island. Not one disappointed! Governors Harbour is the best location for heading north or south for day excursions. The Roundhouse is open & airy & comfortable & welcoming. The bed was very comfy! My favorite was the outdoor shower after hanging on the beach! There is a deck around the entire house with different lounge chairs & a table. Full kitchen if you want to cook. The grounds are beautiful. The view of the ocean from right outside the front door is amazing. Just walk across the sand road to your own private beach hut with lounge chairs & walk down a few steps to the beach. It was everything we wanted and more! Doon brought us some fruit from her trees, hibiscus, a fresh coconut and tips on local places. She is amazing! We know we will be back, hopefully in the near future!

My husband and I were thrilled to find Round House for a much-needed getaway. Being in healthcare and having to deal with COVID the past year, we desperately wanted a retreat from human interaction. Round House fit the bill. Getting to the property is an experience itself. The sandy road, lined on both sides by dense vegetation, ensures that nobody drives down the road unless they have a reason to do so. This certainly plays a role in why the stunningly beautiful beaches are for all intents and purposes, completely deserted. We encountered perhaps only six people the entire time on our multiple miles-long beach walks over the course of a week. The exquisite beauty of the beaches and the water is simply too hard to accurately convey. Round House, itself, is sited on a beautiful property that spans from the Atlantic to the Caribbean. To say the house is quaint, is an understatement. It is obviously a labor of love by the incredible woman who built it herself. It is unique. It is inviting. It is comfortable. It is tasteful. It truly feels like a home rather than an income property. The front of the house has beautiful views of palm trees and other tropical plants as well as the ocean. The outdoor shower in the back of the house has amazing views of dense tropical vegetation. While the proximity to the owner's new home is fairly close, perhaps 50 feet away, the landscaping and design of the new home offer considerable privacy. And while the sand road does bisect the path to the beach, only a handful of cars a day cross in front of Round House.. There is a dedicated beach cabana with palm-frond roof covering two chaise lounge chairs for guests of Round House. We spent much of our time relaxing there getting caught up on our reading. There was always a nice breeze to keep us comfortable, and the ocean was just a few steps away if we needed to get wet. All-in-all, this was the perfect vacation for us. We've stayed in some of the best hotels in the world and not enjoyed our vacation as much the time we spent at Round House. It is something special. Our sincere appreciation to Doon for sharing her property with the world.

My husband and I love to travel - and never to the same place twice. The Round House at Casuarina Bay changed all that. We just returned from our 3rd visit in 4 years and hope to be retuning annually for many many years to come. We found it. Our total paradise. We know we will not find this experience for this price anywhere but here. Now you don't have be Beyonce & Jay Z to spend one week on a stunning, private Island beach! Casuarina Bay is magical. This is the place we go to "get off the grid", slow down, breathe, connect with nature's finest, reconnect with ourselves and with each other. The property is located down a private road on the most stunning beach. You will most likely not see another soul. Choose to spend your days swimming, frolicking and reading - or head out to explore and experience water adventures such as diving into a blue hole. The whole experience is a treat for your eyes, body, mind and spirit. Doon, who is quite humble, is like a legend on the Island. A remarkable woman with a remarkable story and a fantastic host & guide. We are beyond grateful that she shares her slice of heaven with us visitors. Taja, her daughter who handles the bookings, is extremely professional, knowledgeable and patient. She "held our hands" as we found the right flights and applied for our Health Visas (required for travel during to COVID). Once you arrive, Doon will give you the ultimate insiders guide to the Island (she knows EVERYTHING about Eleuthera!), as well as much you as much privacy as you need. If you want to experience the gem of Eleuthera, renting @Casuarina Bay is a must!

About the neighbourhood
Eleuthera's a long, thin island - 110 miles long but, at its widest, only 2 miles across. It's blessed with an abundance of spectacular beaches and perpetuatal summer - winter highs are in the mid 70's, summer highs in the mid to upper 80's. Generally, Eleuthera is 3-4 degrees cooler than Florida, with constant sea breezes.


Eleuthera is unusual in that it is relatively hilly, reaching an elevation of 100 feet, much more than most of the other Bahamian islands. With a population of about 8,000, Eleuthera, unlike Nassau, does not have 'big city' feel. Bahamians are known to be some of the warmest and most friendly anywhere. Governor's Harbour, the capital, is located at the mid-point of the island and has small town charm and is a great
Getting around
