"Quiet beautiful location
Layout and amenities listed were all accurate. If you want privacy this is a great house. The resort next door was great to walk over and get drinks or use the kayaks. Our adult children loved the dj that played on several afternoons and it was a fun lively group even though it's a small resort. The tourism office in Governor's Harbor has a really nice map and I would recommend getting one right away as most streets are not listed. Drive time from ELH airport was about 75 minutes. It was very easy as there is only one main road running throughout the island. Ziggy and Tenille (sp) made the trip. They go out of their way to make sure you are treated well and did everything we asked! The beds were comfortable and everything was very clean! They have dishsoap, dishwasher soap, plenty of towels as well. You will need to bring your own spices though as they just had salt and pepper. The pool is not heated and we didn't really swim at all as it doesn't get the afternoon sun. I'm sure in the warmer months though it's very refreshing. There are about 20 stairs down to the beach which was not an issue for us but could be for impaired individuals. We drove up to Spanish Wells and jumped in the Sapphire Blue Hole and then went in a shark cage with Face2FaceAdventures. Both are highly recommended. We also hired Tom from Bahama Adventures for lessons at Surfer's Beach. Again - recommended but it's a 15 minute walk if you don't have 4 wheel drive from the parking to the beach just so you know ahead of time. We had terrible food/service at Tippy's and would not recommend. La Bougainvillea next door had good food but pricey. Our favorite food/service was at Buccaneer's in Governor's Harbor and we ended up going twice. We had several times where their credit card machines are down so make sure to bring plenty of cash. COVID testing at the clinic in town - $25 cash and easy. "

"Amazing House on a Beautiful Beach with the best view
This house exceeded our expectations based upon the pictures. The house is extremely spacious and comfortable. The showers are amazing and the A/C works great. The pool and beach chairs are great and it is on a pink sand beach where you can take a long walk either direction. We would definitely stay here again. The house is close to good restaurants, grocery stores and other beaches. "

"November Wild Orchid Trip
The villa was even better than we expected! It's situation is stunning, right on the most beautiful beach. We didn't think we would use the hotel next door for much, but we ended up there everyday for one or two meals since Eleuthera was still pretty closed. The hotel staff are lovely and fun. Each bedroom and bathroom was very large and spotless. The living space is bigger than the photos show. We were VERY happy with everything at Wild Orchid and would stay again, but probably at a time when Eleuthera has more open. (There is construction going on behind the villa, but it did not bother us at all.)"

"Wild Orchid
It was absolutely fantastic, no words, entire family from 7-76 years of age loved it. "

"A daimond in the rough!
Wild Orchid is a very new, clean, well-designed home for a family vacation. It is situated on one of the most beautiful pink sand beaches in the world. The house is located next to La Bouganvilla boutique hotel and they share the same staff, who are great to take care of your needs while you are visiting.

So if you have read this far, you are probably thinking thast the title is be a bit confusing. If you haven't visited the island of Eleuthera, you may be surprised to find that is very undeveloped. If you are ok with that part then this may be the most beautiful place on the face of the earth.
We brought enough meat (in coolers) for three dinners and the grill at the house was great for preparation. I highly recommend bringing anything that you want, because the grocery options are limited and expensive.
There are a few great restaurants and bars around, including the restaurant at La Bouganviella. "

"Perfect location, Beautiful Beach
La Bougainvillea is a magical place. The staff are very attentive and accommodating. Shout outs to Karell, Katherine and J. This trip was a family of 8 celebration/ vacation. Wild Orchid's set up is perfect w/3 bedrooms, each with its own bathroom. We also rented the cottage behind the house. The beach is indeed pink and desolate. Rarely saw anyone else on the beach. Breath taking sunrise and sunsets. Minutes away from Governors Harbor, restaurants, convenient to anywhere you want to go. We all enjoyed ourselves immensely in spite of issues we encountered. Wifi is spotty, Water pressure and water temperature are a problem. our expectations for a luxury rental may be high, but sometimes no water comes out of faucets/showers, sometimes scalding hot, or freezing. Not sure if its just wild orchid, or if this is a resort wide issue. Upon our arrival there were some broken cabinet doors, a fan that didn't work over the kitchen island, one bedroom had no TV as advertised, one tv didn't work. Eventually things were resolved. Even with inconveniences, this is a desirable rental house! Highly recommend Eleuthera Outdoor Center for snorkeling excursions.
We would all visit La Bougainvillea again! "

"Great Time
Matt and his team were very helpful in picking a place that’s was perfect for our family. La Bougainvillea was an awesome place to stay with excellent service and really nice accommodations. I would not hesitate to stay here again. "

"Beautiful 60th birthday party at Wild Orchid

I wanted to thank you again for recommending us Wild Orchid. The 8 of us were very happy and spent a lovely time there. As you told me, the house was brand new and everything was just perfect.
Having the Hotel beside the House was fantastic. All the Staff was very helpful and kind. Mario the Cheff incredible, we had dinner twice over there and the food was delicious , Chris, Kira, Horatio all were very nice to us.
The beach was fantastic, the temperature of the water better imposible.
We would love to come back in te near future. Maybe it would be better to arrive in the Governors Harbour airport that is closer to the house, even though the north Eleuthera airport was not that bad.
We liked a lot Eleuthera ,the beach that we had in front of the house with pink sand was as beautiful or maybe nicer as the famous one in Harbour Island.
Just a few things as constructive criticism. The house should have a shower and bath beside the pool, some portable chairs and umbrellas for the beach, the ceiling of the terrace should be improved with a waterproof ceiling, (the rain went through it) some chairs in the bedrooms, some hooks to hung things in the bathrooms and maybe some xtra frying pans as the one we had in the house did not work with that cooktop. Mario lent us one. Some beach towels and all the bathrooms with hair dryers.
In overall everything was just fantastic, and asume very soon more vegetation will be in the surroundings of Wild Orchid. Thank you Very Much. hope to come back soon. I will recommended to friends.

"Wild Orchid
I could not have been MORE satisfied with my experience. The house and the service was unbelievable. We will be back soon!"

"3 couples at Wild Orchid in Eleuthra
We had a great time relaxing at this newly-constructed home overlooking the Atlantic, and exploring the island from this central location. Since it was a new home, there were still some "punch list" items; however, Sophia took care of any issues promptly and helped make our stay a delight."
