"Gurgle and Whump" - named for the two blowholes or "boiling holes" in the rock beside the sea - is a charming, airy two-bedroom house right on the shore of the Caribbean side of Eleuthera. Light, bright furniture and several large glass sliding doors give you the feeling of being out in the sea and sky even indoors. The sliding doors of one bedroom look straight out to the sea, the sliding doors of the other look out to the sea through the garden's palm trees. Both bedrooms have AC.

A large shade sail protects the patio, and a second patio with umbrella is located beside the steps cut through the rock for access to the sea with its excellent snorkeling - expect to see groupers, yellowtails, blue tangs, and schools of juvenile fish.

The house is on a quiet side street, but walking distance to the Big Rock grocery store, restaurant and bar. Just north of James Cistern, and within easy reach of Governor's Harbour, its airport and dozens of empty beaches.

The kitchen features a stove-top gas cooker, microwave, refrigerator, and dishwasher. (The kitchen has a range and microwave but not an oven.)

Amenities include AC in the bedrooms, washer/dryer, WiFi, Roku TV, DVDs, board games, books, beach chairs, and a gas grill.

"Gurgle and whoomp
Upon arrival, the owners happened to be there finishing up with putting together a new outdoor gas grill, which was broken in well during our stay, with our fresh fish daily! Robin and Eliza were a delight, Robin being a native from Eleuthera born and raised and Eliza a free spirit with an engaging personality! It was a welcomed introduction into island lifestyle after a very hectic trip due to problems with COVID testing and arriving a day late! "

"Wonderful Stay in a Wonderful Home
My husband and I loved staying on Eleuthera in Gurgle and Whump. They provided us with everything we needed. The hosts were great and quick to respond to any questions we had. Eleuthera was a beautiful island with sights that cannot be seen anywhere else. It was an unforgettable trip! "

"Simply amazing!
Perfect location! Great owners to work with. Prompt responses. "

"Location is great!
Location is great! Rooms are large with lots of visibility ... although, some finishes need to be updated but are not a problem as is. The new washer/dryer are a great addition. We had several power outages and were glad we brought a couple of flashlights (in addition to those provided by the owners). Overall, the house was well equipped with just about everything we needed."

"Gurgle & Whump
The description of Gurgle & Whump is accurate. While this is an older classic construction home in Rainbow Bay it has all the things you need to cook, go to the beach, snorkel, etc. And it sits right on the Caribbean and allows for great views, breezes & adventurous swimming/snorkeling off the rocky ledge & steps. The stars & fireflies at night are not to be missed. While there may be more modern, newer construction rentals this one had alot of charm & we really liked our time relaxing here. We had a snafu with our AC one night & the owners drove right over to help us out & brought us a hammock to use. They were so nice! Thank you Robin & Eliza!"

"Can't Wait to Go Back
We loved staying Gurgle and Whump and would love to return soon. The location is private and the grounds are so beautiful. the open floor plan with many windows allow you to see this view almost every spot in the house. It was well stocked (including a 5 gal jug of water). Plenty of towels, kitchen ware, snorkling equipment and an awsome outdoor shower. There is a nice walkway down to the water (which is so beautiful) where you can set up chairs, fish, swim and snorkle. The water was pretty rough during our stay, but you cannot predict the weather. It didn't stop us from gettin in, just a little hard to get out of the water. When we had trouble gettin on the internet Robin and Eliza were there to troubleshoot. THey both are very nice and can give you suggestion/advice on where to go and on some history of Eleuthera. Robin even showed me how to open and enjoy a pineapple which was on the grounds. I would definately recommend Gurgle and Whump. Great value for your money. Our only concern before we arrived was there is only one bathroom, and we had four adutls. But we did not have trouble with all of us sharing, too busy trying to enjoy the view.Thank you Robin and Eliza for sharing your cottage with us."

"“Loving Gurgle and Whump”
We are so sad to be departing Gurgle and Whump. We have stayed all over Eleuthera for years and this is by far our favourite place. From the outstanding panoramic ocean views to kitchen cookware and beach supplies to an incredible array of books and cozy, relaxing seaside d├ęcor... the vase of fresh flowers from the front garden, greeting us, was a really nice touch. G&W checks all of the boxes. We even watched a little Netflix on the Roku TV but mostly enjoyed the snorkeling and loved driftwood beach, hidden beach and rainbow bay beaches as well as freediving from the Cliffs, which is always amazing.
Looking forward to returning in 2022.
Thanks so much Robin and Eliza for this incredible respite from the bustle of Nassau."
