"Peaceful Beauty
We enjoyed a quiet, peaceful vacation with almost everything we needed. The bay is very private and the neighborhood was safe. The location was ideal to access many parts of the island. The house was recently remodeled and was very comfortable. The AC was ideal. We did discuss with the owners in advance that the property came with 2 kayaks. What we found was a small kayak and 2 wave riders for children so we weren't able to kayak the bay as hoped."

We really love the time we enjoyed at this house with sea seeing from all the windows and a friendly deco and fully confortable!We like very much Eleuthera in spite of a terrible and dramatic experience to get home back from vacations with PINEAPPLE AIRLINES: the plane just departure one hour before scheduled time at 4:45 PM and they left behind all us (5 persons). We lost our connecting flights at Nassau and have to payed a private pilot to take us in his plane at late evening from eleuthera to nassau, they let us withoit light nor water or food waiting in a closed airport at Governor Harbour for hours alone and vulnerable with our young daugther and all the family. No answer or apologized was received from the airline, so we are afraid we cant reccomend to get Eleuthera by ths kind of transportation... and there is not many more. Blue Dream is fantasctic but it is so unsafe to get to Eleuthera....."

"Wonderful Stay on Eleuthera
We had a wonderful stay at Blue Dream. It was the perfect family holiday despite all of the issues associated with COVID. The house is very well located outside Governor's Harbour allowing us to easily explore much of the island. We loved the beaches, the people, the restaurants. The main living room was perfect to come back to after long days. The views across the bay are amazing. The only thing that could be a little better are the bathrooms - they were a little tired. Local restaurants such as Tippy's, Buccaneer Club, Fishbones were a success. The snorkelling lovely and wow.. the beaches...."

"Blue Dream met my dreams - perfect location in a paradise setting
Blue Dream is in perfect location close to Governors Harbor shops and restaurants. We enjoyed dinner and ambiance at The Deck, Tippy's, Buccaneer Club and French Leave. The house was so enchanting our 3 adult kids didn’t want to leave the calm aqua water in the backyard beach where they snorkeled and kayaked using the equipment at the house. Every evening was a pool tournament followed by stargazing or one of the card games. We all had privacy and a big
family area to play in. The house was so clean, the bedding and mattress was fantastic and we all melted into the comfort of the house. The excellent WiFi helped, it even carried to the private beach! The owners and Sonya the caretaker were so responsive and guided us through every step with some great contacts for car rental - Naaman and a charter cruise with Big Jeremy. We would all go back in a heartbeat.

"Perfect location and wonderful home!
For a true Island adventure that is centrally located on Eleuthera this is it! Your own private beach front, beautifully decorated and well maintained. Close to all the great restaurants (1648, Buccaneer Club, and Paschals (Sammy the best bartender). Short drive to Ocean Hole and Lighthouse Beach. Abundant sea life for fishing. Kayaks were great! WiFi and A/C.
It truly is a Dream!!"

"blue dream paradise
Had a wonderful vacation. Sonya greeted us and was extremely welcoming and helpful the entire trip. House is in a beautiful peaceful spot. Situated conveniently about in the middle of everywhere we wanted to go. Had everything you need. I would highly recommend and would definitely come back again."

"Incredible Location and Great House
We were a little paranoid to rent this home based on prior reviews but we are so glad we did The new owner had assured us that the house had been remodeled and prior issues had been corrected and that was all true. It was a stunning location very close to Governor’s Harbour. There were a couple of neighbors, but we never saw them. We had the bay to ourselves! The house has been renovated and was very comfortable and very very clean. There were brand new doors and windows we didn’t have any bugs in the home. The master bedroom was big and the bed was comfortable. The new flooring and furniture was custom made and so pretty in the bedrooms. The bunk room has all new furniture and kids would love it. The pictures don’t do the loft bedroom justice. It might have the best view on the whole island. The custom furniture was beautiful. You would have to climb down the stairs to access the bathroom, but that is a little thing compared to how great the view is! The living area is huge with a fun pool table and it also has new furniture. The kitchen has everything you need to cook great meals. The beach was small but the bay is crystal clear with a sandy bottom. We hung out in shade under the beach hut and the water access was very easy. The bathrooms are older, but very clean. Everything in the house was in working order and there were new linens, towels, beach towels, etc. There are even kayaks, life jackets and tons of snorkeling gear. The wifi and cable worked great! We had planned to explore the island more, but we were so happy at Blue Dream that we didn’t leave the much. Sonya, the caretaker, met us at the house and walked us through. She was wonderful and very easy to reach when we had a question. Eleuthera Vacation Rentals was easy to work with and Kim and Jason gave us great information on the island and were very responsive to our needs. This was a perfect house on a perfect island and we can’t wait to go back!"

"Decent home on Balara Bay
This is an older home partially renovated, staff was very polite and friendly, normal quirks for an out island home, better with a kayak rental to go with the home."

"Great Location! But Buggy
was not told of ongoing renovations; only one small TV worked in living area; uncomfortable mattresses; furniture so so and loosing stuffing; ripped screens; very little privacy between bedrooms; electrical should be tended to; biggest problem - rats/rodents in the garage, under sink, countertops, droppings in luggage when returning home; had to wash all silverware and dishes; honestly may have bed bugs; bites appeared on all of us; needs a lot of TLC to improve this property.did correspond with owner; would not recommend until major points are taken care of especially the bugs. Outstanding features: The Friday Night Fish Fry, beaches

"A Whole Week in Paradise
We had the pleasure of renting Blue Dream in Balara Bay 10 mins from the town of Governor’s Harbour. We couldn’t have chosen a better location for our first trip to Eleuthera, Bahamas. We arrived at the House a little early for check-in, our caretaker Manex greeted us openly. While he finished setting up we were able to get a peek at our temporary backyard and the stunning turquoise Caribbean. We could not have chosen a better location for pristine beauty, privacy and sunset views! To think we had this beautiful Bay almost all to ourselves was quite incredible.
Manex was able to point us in the right direction for restaurants, site-seeing, groceries, gas and bank. All within 10 minutes from the house. Buccaneers Restaurant and Restaurant 1648 turned out to be favorites. We enjoyed great food, great drinks, and wonderful staff.
This house is older but warm and charming. Kitchen is fully stocked. The A/C was cold and refreshing. The deck delightful! The bugs on the Island can be overwhelming so protection is a must. (Deet, much to our chagrin, is about the only thing that keeps them from biting).There were some minor issues that came up during our stay, power on the Island is temperamental, subscription streaming was near impossible, but nothing that impacted our stay. The house has games, pool table, a small DVD library and Blu-Ray players throughout. Also, snorkel gear, and two kayaks added to our pleasure.
Because it’s hard to import to the Island there were things we couldn’t get but we never lacked for the necessities. Food is expensive, about three times as much as the States, we found eating out to be more cost-effective. There were 4 in our party, we found the quarters spacious enough for us to go our separate ways when we wanted time to ourselves.
Must sees: Glass Window Bridge, Ocean Hole, Surfer’s Beach
We cannot say enough about Eleuthera and will be planning another trip soon!The Islander’s "
