Maison très confortable, plage sublime
On the Rocks est pour moi la maison de plage de rêve ! Plein de lumière, des couleurs vifs des Caraibes, 4 chambres confortables chacune avec sa propre salle de bain et un énorme salon ou tout le monde peut se détendre. La cuisine est bien équipée et on est 10 minutes en voiture de Governor's Harbor pour faire les courses ou profiter d'un des restos de "centre ville". Mais ce qui rende cette maison vraiment exceptionnelle est sa position sur une des plus belles plages des Bahamas. Vue des eaux turquoises depuis la maison et au bout du jardin, une plage de sable fin à couper le souffle. J'ai passé plusieurs vacances en famille et que ce soit avec ou sans enfants, tout le monde adore.
The perfect vacation home for family and friends!
We spent 2 wonderful weeks at On the Rocks. Our first week was with family , and our second with friends. The house is as welcoming as an old friend, decorated with the owner's colorful art and treasures from their travels. The rooms were totally accommodating. Having bathrooms for every one is really nice. The view from the living room is spectacular and the furniture is lovely. We had a puzzle in works on the coffee table, a table for watercoloring, and a dining table that comfortably seated all 8 of us. The daybed room proved irresistible to those who pretend to read but actually nap. The kitchen was perfect for us, a group of people who love to cook with plenty of cookware, dishes and glasses. We bought grouper, conch and snapper from the fishermen in the harbor, great bread and produce from Bacchus, wine from Bristol in Cupids cay and all else from the markets in town. We had delicious lunches and dinners at the Buccaneer Club and dinner at Tippy's and brought yummy takeout from Bacchus as well. The house is situated on an exquisite beach, with trees providing sufficient filtered sun that we didn't need an umbrella. The Venus pool does not disappoint. It is perfect for children as well as evening cocktails. And then there is the snorkeling! The reefs out past the rocks sport some of the most colorful coral and fish I have seen in years. Beulah, the housekeeper, takes good care of the house and it's guests. We have stayed in 3 different homes on Eleuthera. All were lovely, but everyone who stayed with us at On the Rocks has already decided this is the place for next summer.
House needs a lot of work
The property manager was adequately helpful.
The vacation rental was very dirty.
I was very happy with the location.
I was very dissatisfied with the condition of the vacation rental.
Overall, I do not recommend this vacation rental.
The location is wonderful. Easy access, private, beautiful views, easy beach access. The house on the other hand needs work. It had active termites in several rooms.Live termites, termite frass,and termite damage. Saw dust and termite frass would literally fall out of doors when closed. Louvered windows that don't close all the way, so heat and bugs seep right in. AC in the master bedroom wouldn't cool. I ended up sleeping in another room. There was no satellite TV as promised. Not even a box. Kitchen did not have AC (which was disclosed) but was never got cooler than 81 degrees. The house was somewhat dirty when we arrived. My wife spent the next morning cleaning. The housekeeper that was supposed to clean, never came. The pictures are very misleading. I have stayed at a lot of places in the Bahamas, so I have a good idea of what to expect. This was not up to par.
Another wonderful stay at On the Rocks! We love the layout of the house! Plenty of bedrooms and bathrooms for a large family. The living area is huge with sliding doors to the most spectacular view of the ocean. Lots of games for the family to play.
Many thanks to Misty, who took great care of the house and us! The house has a large kitchen and bar area with plenty of cooking utensils and dishes. We love the new grill.
The location of this property cannot be beat, close to town and amenities. Yet it offers privacy and one of the most spectacular beaches we've seen. We snorkeled outside the rock formations several times. Perhaps some of the best snorkeling we have experienced in many years. We saw over 100 varieties of large and small bright and beautiful fish! Along with a huge school of giant parrot fish. If you like to spend most of your time on the beach and in the water. This is a great place!
Best Eleuthera Beach
On the Rocks is a lovely house in a magical location! Perfectly situated on a beautiful rocky point that provides privacy and access to one of the top beaches on the Atlantic side. Pat and Robert have beautifully decorated the house and the layout is perfect for a larger group.
We enjoyed preparing meals in the big, well-outfitted kitchen. Between surf and snorkel sessions, we enjoyed lounging on the front patio and lawn. The bedrooms are large and provide comfy beds. We really liked the way that each bedroom had it's own attached bath.
This location on Eleuthera is very convenient to Governor's Harbour and Rock Sound. Either township is a quick drive on nice roads. We found some very good snorkeling and caving sites within a 10 minute drive. PROTIP: If the weather is ugly - go visit some cool caves!
North Palmetto is a nice settlement. There are a few medical clinics and a few places to get really good Bahamian food. If you walk north on the beach, you can enjoy Tippy's after a nice 20-minute beach walk.
If you are VERY LUCKY you might get to meet the owner's 3 cute beach dogs. They visited us twice daily and provided lovely tour guide service on a couple of beach hikes.
Overall OTR is a fantastic beach rental! It is well-appointed, well-managed, and priced right. We'll be back...
We had a fantastic time at On The Rocks! The view from the home rivals any island place we have visited & we have been to many islands. Being close to one of the best restaurants on the island was great, we ate at Tippys several times. Also, being right on the beach with easy access was perfect ! The home is very comfortable & creatively Bahamaian
Il y a plusieurs excellents restaurants, certains avec de la musique live certains soirs ... tous à 15 minutes en voiture. Le Beach House et le Tippy's sont à seulement 1,5 km de la plage!
Dans l'après-midi, les pêcheurs vendent leurs prises de poisson frais sur le quai à Governor's Harbour et à Tarpum Bay!
Cependant, faites attention à acheter ce qui est en saison ... Le mérou Nassau est HORS SAISON du 1er décembre au mars. 1. pendant leur période de reproduction. Les poissons crawles sont HORS DE SAISON du 1er avril au 1er août. 1 ... même raison. VEUILLEZ RESPECTER CES SAISONS même si le poisson vous est offert par des pêcheurs peu scrupuleux ... si nous voulons avoir du poisson pour l'avenir! La même chose dans les restaurants pendant ce temps ... s'il vous plaît demander quel poisson ils servent!
Pour ceux qui aiment les vagues plus dures ... La plage de surfeurs du nord est sauvage et accidentée ... où la plage de LightHouse au sud est romantique et isolée!
Eleuthera est une île de merveilleux endroits à explorer et peu de gens à vous déranger!
