Gaulding Cay Beach, like all beaches in the Bahamas, is public. Tourists and locals (particularly on local holidays) will visit this beautiful beach, but more often than not you will have it to yourself. As the beach access road is beside Moonflower, cars may be parked there. However, more often than not, the beach will be completely deserted and you will have it entirely to yourself. Moonflower is located two miles from the village of Gregory Town. Gregory Town has the best gift shop on the island, Pam’s Island Made Gift Shop, featuring handmade art and crafts from around the Bahamas. Nearby restaurants and night spots include The Cove, newly renovated and featuring continental cuisine with Caribbean flair and an infinity edge pool. The Rainbow Inn is famous for its steaks and fresh vegetables from its organic garden. It offers live entertainment several nights a week, and is frequented by the island’s favorite musical celebrity. Also nearby is Daddy Joe’s, a local bar and night spot just down the road. A 15-minute drive takes you to The Bluff, which has the biggest supermarket on the island. A 20-minute drive plus a short water-taxi ride takes you to Harbour Island, with its many restaurants, shops, and straw market. Governor’s Harbor, half an hour away, has numerous beach restaurants.

"Beautiful Gaulding Cay
This 4 bedroom, 3 bath Gaulding Cay home was just right for our family. Moonflower is right on the gentle, beautiful Caribbean Sea. It offers a well equipped kitchen and plenty of linens and towels. For outdoor fun they provide rafts, chairs and even 2 nice kayaks. On the rare occasion we had to contact the manager someone responded quickly."

This was the perfect "toes in the sand" getaway!"

"Amazing Beach View!
The house was very spacious and had everything we needed. It was quite a pleasure meeting the caretaker, Lady Di. She is such a lovely lady! The beach and view were the highlights of the home!"

"Family vacation 2022
Wonderful experience.
House was big, clean, comfy and steps from the beach. The location of Moonflower was beyond our expectations."

"Serenaded by Moonflower at Gaulding Cay
From the moment we arrived, we felt welcome and the accommodations provided all we needed and more. Waking up to the beach and water, watching the sunset from the porch, Moonflower has it all. The location is a perfect jumping point to all things Eleuthera and being in the shadow of the Glass Window bridge..perfect! Thank you Geeta for sharing you slice of heaven! "

"Beautiful home, amazing location, perfect vacation getaway.
My stay at Moonflower was wonderful. The location is amazing as it is steps away from the beautiful white sands and turquoise waters of the the tranquil Caribbean sea. The home is within a short drive to several restaurants and stores, although the location is rural and tucked away off the main road, so you feel as though you're on your own private piece of paradise. The gardens around the home are lovely and are great for leisurely walks and relaxing. The home itself is beautiful and is decorated with bright, cheerful art and furniture. It is very spacious with a light, airy feel. There are lovely views from every window and opening them to let in the ocean breezes is amazing. The porches are a perfect place to relax, read, or enjoy a snack. The home is fully stocked with everything you'd need - from towels and linens, to dishes and cookware, to books and local activity guides, etc... The 4 bedrooms are comfortable and can accommodate quite a few guests. The kitchen is great for cooking and the large dining area easily hosts a large family/group. The living room is cozy and opens to beautiful views of the sandy beach and water. The location is very safe and the grounds are the perfect area for children to go outside to play and freely explore nature. If you are looking for a location to escape the busyness/noise/stress of city life while relaxing in a tropical paradise, this home is the perfect place.

"Lovely Vacation in Eleuthera
We spent a week staying at Moonflower in early January. The house worked well for us, as a family. We were a group of three couples. There was plenty of room and privacy. The house is situated on a beautiful beach where you can relax and enjoy the beauty all around you.

"Great Week at MoonFlower!
We spent a fantastic week at Moonflower. The location/setting was great. Our party included our 17-month old grandson. What a great beach for him. No waves-just clear, warm, shallow water to play in. The house itself was great with A/C in each bedroom and in living areas. We enjoyed the benefits of having a grill in the backyard and a washer/dryer available for our use.

We will be back!!"

"Moonflower review
We absolutely loved Gaulding Cay Beach, especially with little kids. It was your front yard and we greatly enjoyed it.
The owner and housekeeper for Moonflower were wonderful to work with. Very nice. However, the house really needed some tlc. The size was great and fit two families perfectly however it was very cluttered, everything seemed very old and on the verge of breaking. When I opened my closet door the first day, it fell off. Linens seemed very old, the fitted sheet barely stayed on the beds. Washing machine took a couple tries to work, front bedrooms air conditioner made clinking noises every couple minutes, front bathroom sink was having trouble draining by the end. It just felt very run down."

"Amazing family getaway!
We flew into North Eleuthera and had a rental car waiting. We stopped for groceries in our way. When we arrived at the house, we were greeted by Lady Di who showed us around. The house was perfect and it was right on the beach. The AC was nice and cool. We swam everyday and went snorkeling around Gaulding Cay which was surrounded by tropical fish, starfish and rays. This was the perfect quiet family vacation. We chartered a boat one day with Captain Ryan for a day and went fishing and sight seeing and snorkeling around the island. There is a TV DVD player at the house but there is not an HDMI plug into TV and there is no Satellite. WiFi at the house is a bit spotty and the DVD player does not play Blue Ray. If you want to watch anything on TV bring it on DVD. The house comes with a 5 gallon water cooler and 5 gallons of water. We plan on going back next year! "

"Perfect week at a perfect house!
I rented Moonflower house for my 50th birthday and brought a few friends and it couldn’t have been more perfect! The house is large and comfortable and very clean and is located on the most beautiful beach I have visited in Eluthera. I wish I never had to leave and all my guests felt the same way. Lovely decor, comfortable rooms and beds, excellent air conditioning, big kitchen and an outdoor shower..what else do you need? Lady Di is an absolute delight and so are her sauces and jellies, don’t miss trying them! We will be back for sure!! "

"It was fabulous!!!
We had such a wonderful time, the beach is beautiful, the island is such a nice getaway for a family with young children, and the house was perfect for two families of 4 and 3. We can’t wait to come back!"

"Family stay at Moonflower
It was wonderful. The house location and beach provided us all with a great getaway. The agent matt simon was very responsive and helpful. The caretaker Lady Di and our cooks Patrick and Brenda were great.
Issues to be attended to: dish washer doesn'y clean, one guest shower inoperable, master bath sink clogges."

"Best trip of my life
We stayed at Moonflower over spring break this year. There were 2 families, both with kids, and the house was perfect. The adults stayed in the rooms on each end of the house, with their own bathrooms and the kids stayed in the middle 2 rooms, with a bath that they shared. We caught fresh fish and the kitchen had everything we needed to create many delicious meals at the home. We snorkeled everyday (bring your gear!) and the beach in the backyard was breath taking, so many beautiful fish and water that will take your breath away! The water is very shallow and therefore is great for kids and floating in a float! There are only a few houses along the beach so it was very private. The house has a wonderful living room and everyone had plenty of space to relax. We played games and puzzles on the large dining room table and the washer and dryer were a life saver. The island of Eleuthra is such a natural beauty, we explored from north to south and each day was amazing! We all agreed that this was the best trip we have ever taken."

"Eleuthera Moonflower Vacation
Everything was good except the beach in front of our house is also a public access beach and there were quite a few people there which is the opposite of what we look for and the reason we choose outer islands"
Feb 05, 2019 - John O., Spencer, WI

"What a great holiday!
Eleuthera has a very chilled vibe, people very friendly, children unfailingly polite, very few tourists although it was the end of the season when we visited. Beaches are beautiful. If you want to get away from it all, whilst still having access to civilisation you cant do much better than Eleuthera. Food is expensive,approximately 2 x prices in UK, and don't expect the choice you might be used to at home. Moonflower itself is suited to the overall feeling of the island, very relaxed, plenty of room, comfortable and nicely appointed without being blingy. There were a few things which could do with updating / replacing but nothing serious. There is a decent sized garden surrounding the house, but you will spend all your time on the beach which is really beautiful. The water is shallow, crystal clear and sheltered from the prevailing wind. If you like to snorkel, Gaulding Cay is nice, we saw Nassau Groupers, a big snapper, a huge eagle ray, schools of Blue Runners, angel fish, and big shoals of silversides. There isn't much coral but what there is is in good condition. Twin Sisters beach to the North also has a couple of Cays, also good snorkelling and we saw lobster, puffer fish and moray eels on both. The best snorkelling is to the South - take the canoes past Kravitz beach, a small rock breaks the surface at the end of the cliffs. From here onwards it's really good - massive rays, morays, turtles, nice coral. Other good things - the Sapphire Hole about 1/2 mile on the right before you reach Preachers Caves, great fun. Harbour Island - golf carts, cracked conch and beer on the beach. Daddy Joes restaurant. Breakfast at the Cove ($25 per head relatively good value). All the beaches. Lady Di and her lovely family. Great memories."

"Peace and Beauty @Moonflower, Gaulding Cay
Moonflower is a very spacious home and it slept our party of 9 very well and everyone had plenty of personal space. It was a short 30 second stroll from front door to toes in the sand. Gaulding Cay Beach is stunning and we shared it with just a few people during our stay. The locals like to use the beach and everyone of them were great people. We found a large conch and a couple locals cleaned it up for us and they were awesome to the kids. Moonflower is a short drive to many other beautiful beaches. We got our fuel and food from Seven Eleven in Gregory Town just a 10 minute drive away. Also, had a beautiful breakfast at The Cove Resort a short 5 minute drive away. Moonflower has everything you need for a great vacation. We enjoyed the kayak, paddle board, and other beach toys that come with the house. I wish the home would have advertised a paddle board because I shipped mine from California for a pricey fee :( I would of definitely left it at home had I known. The A/C ran great and we were very comfortable. Plenty of kitchen accessories for cooking yourself and saving some money. We found everything we needed. Lady Di was awesome!! She took good care of us and was such a blast to chat with. We purchased many of her jams and hot sauces to take home. Amazing....The owner Geeta was so nice and professional every time we communicated via email. As well, the staff at Eleuthera Vacation Rentals was spot on too... Eleuthera is a special place and I hope to make it back there some day. Our trip was one to remember and I highly recommend Moonflower and Eleuthera...Happy Travels!"

"Paradise in Eleuthera
Outstanding stay at Moonflower. Beach was perfect for our grandkids..lots of floats and sand toys! Adults were thrilled as well. Lady Di was welcoming and so helpful ..we truly enjoyed the house and its amenities. The renting process was easy with Matthew's guidance. This is our 7th time and Eleuthera and undoubtedly our favorite rental!Thank you Geeta for sharing your special paradise with us! "

"Fantastic Vacation Home on the beach
We had the most relaxing vacation ever. The Kids could walk into the shallow, clear waters in the calm Gaulding Bay. We snorkeled basically straight from the beach outside the house over to the island. Comfy home, spectacular location, and the personal touch from Lady Di (delicious home-made jam and pepper sauce, fresh bananas and papayas right off her farm ) made for a truly memorable experience. We were nine people (5 of them kids, ranging an ages from 5 to 15) and everyone had plenty of space. Bring books and games (leave the TV and wireless devices off) and unplug totally. You won’t regret it. We would love to be back in the future!"

"A Nice Week at Moonflower
First time at Moonflower but the second time at Gaulding Cay so we knew the beach was gorgeous.
The house is spacious and well laid out. The internet was great, even down at the beach. Everything you need in the kitchen is available and plenty of linens and blankets.
Some basic maintenance is needed:
- the master shower would not drain at all starting on the first day so not useable
- The fan does not work in the master
- The drain in the second bathroom would not drain
- Two of the screens in the second bedroom would not stay in which is an issue with the bugs
- We only saw Lady Di at check-in so the outside trash was never emptied and the animals scattered the trash around the yard
There are only 2 beach chairs for a house which sleeps 10 which is pretty silly.
The fact that the public beach access is the same road as the house is a bit annoying as we had cars in the backyard nearly every day. Not a big deal until they brought kids and hung out in the exact same spot as we were sitting
Very nice house and beach and we would consider staying here again but would need some assurance that the maintenance issues are resolved"
Apr 03, 2018 - Rob C., Hendersonville, TN

A beautiful home on a beautiful beach on an outstanding island best describes Moonflower. We have stayed in many other rentals on Eleuthera and this one is our favorite. We found our caretaker "Lady Di" to be quick to address any concerns and share with us her wonderful Pineapple Jam and Hot Sauce to boot! The folks in Gregory Town are the best and we look forward to our visit next year!"

"Moonflower Retreat!
Moonflower is in an amazing location with great access to the beach and walking distance to a fun restaurant. Any issues or questions we had were handled promptly by Lady Di! There are kayaks available and the home is very comfortable! Can’t wait to come back to Eleuthera! Waking up and having coffee overlooking an amazing beach is quite a treat! "
