Another fabulous stay in Eleuthera! by Soraya 09/03/2014
Another fabulous stay in Eleuthera! This was our third visit to this magical island and the second time staying in at the Governors Estate. The Yellow House was amazing, the beds and bedding super cozy and comfortable, the kitchen and reclaimed wood table perfect for our gatherings! The pool was gorgeous at night with all the pretty lights. We enjoyed French Leave and Tippy's beaches particularly because we saw the dolphins and interacted with them TWICE! We also had many day adventures to: Harbour Island, Island Farm, Island Made gift shop, the Queen's Baths, the bridge, the Ocean Hole, Ten Bay, Cocodimama for shelling, Sky beach club infinity pool, Friday fish fry, Banks Deli and the Bakery in town. A truly wonderful vacation, made even more so, coming home to Yellow House at the end of the day. Thank you for your warm hospitality, can't wait to come back soon!
Listing does not do justice to this awesome rental 5 of 5 by Leticia 09/03/2014
Listing does not do justice to this awesome rental 5 of 5
We had a blast!!!!!!!!!! We went diving for conch, snorkeling and fishing down in Cape Eleuthera. We went beaching just about every day and the days we didn't go beaching we maximized the pool use, went to Harbour Island, explored the settlements, or enjoyed the local cuisine. We also visited the glass window bridge and the ocean hole in rock sound. The house was lovely, spacious, well equipped and was an activity in itself...allowing us to enjoy our time as a family. To are just fabulous! Thanks for all the tips and checking in on us to make sure the house was serving us well.
You guys made us more than happy that we selected 'home' for our family's staycation. I will be sure to recommend you guys to anyone looking for a rental when in GH! It's truly better in our Bahamas! !!!!
Practically perfect in every way! by Michael T. Toronto 09/03/2014
Practically perfect in every way! 5 of 5 Our group of 9 (3 couples, 3 kids) stayed for a week at the Yellow House and could not have enjoyed it more. The photos almost don't do the place justice. It is well-designed to be that perfect combination of polished and comfortable that makes it a terrific place to kick back and relax. All the amenities were just as described and in terrific condition. The kitchen was large and well-equipped and we made very good use of it.

Kathy met us when we arrived with a warm, informative welcome and then checked in a few more times throughout the week. It was great having her so close by.

The one thing I wasn't quite prepared for was the height of the hill the house is on. Or, more specifically, the steepness of the hill to town. It's definitely walkable, but we were certainly happy to have rented a car as it made trips for groceries, etc, much more manageable. To reach French Leave beach, we were happy to walk the 10 minutes or so in the other direction to reach one of the most beautiful, unpopulated beaches I've ever been on.

Having a car in general is a great idea because it gives you the freedom to explore the rest of the island. There are great beaches almost everywhere you turn. We loved being a short drive away from Island Farm, where we bought terrific vegetables, many grown on the island, which is a welcome change from other islands we've visited. There are grocery stores in GH, but a 40-minute (or so) drive to the Marketplace in Rock Sound, is worth it to pick up some of the things you might want that the store in GH don't carry. We stopped off at the dock in Tarpum Bay on the way back to pick uip fresh-caught fish and lobsters for the grill.

We didn't eat out too much during our stay, preferring to make use of the terrific kitchen at the house. A few lunches at the Beach House on French Leave were spot-on. Barbecue at Stubbs in James Cistern was a great experience, as was the Fish Fry in town on Friday night.

Would I recommend the Yellow House to a friend or relative? (That's one of the questions I'm supposed to answer in this review.) Definitely, as long as they weren't trying to book it for the same time as I was. But if they were trying to squeeze me out? No way!
