Relaxing Bahamas

Very nice secluded cottage. Would defiantly stay again. Just what we were looking for. Only saw a handful on people. Very relaxing!! Barbra and her team were very easy to work with and communicated very well.

Gorgeous property!

We thoroughly enjoyed our time at the Desert Rose house! The location, privacy and beautiful beach made for a wonderful vacation.

Favorite house so far!

This was our third time at Desert Rose and we have decided it is our favorite house we've stayed at in our 5 years of visiting Eleuthera. Desert Rose is perfectly situated in a private setting on a glorious beach. Our favorite aspect is all of the outdoor space - from the wrap around deck to the patio with lounge chairs a little lower down the bank and then finally the beautiful beach where we relax under a palm leaf palabra. The house itself is simple with ample space for a couple or family with small children as second bedroom as bunk beds. The kitchen is well stocked for meal prep should you choose and the living area/tv room is quite spacious and comfortable. The location near Governor's Harbor is super convenient to shopping and restaurants as well as the organic farm in the other direction in Palmetto. We noticed more people (10-12/day) on the beach this time which was a disappointment. We've had stays when we saw not a soul on the beach and felt like we owned the island! The secret of Eleuthera must be getting out. There is a second home on this property but well out of the way of Desert Rose so if people are staying there at the same time, you still feel quite secluded and private.

We very much look forward to our return visit next year! Thank you Barbara!

Loved our stay!

My husband and I had a fabulous 10 days exploring the beautiful island of Eleuthera and enjoying this very comfortable house. The house had everything we needed, including wifi and cable TV, grocery stores and restaurants were very close (Sunset & 1648 our favorites), although a couple were closed for renovations. The beach was beautiful and the sand was powdery soft. The house is very secluded on the beach and we only saw two other people on the beach while we were there and they were the owners of the house next door. We had a few days where the Atlantic was a bit rough which caused seaweed to wash up on shore making swimming almost impossible. On those few days when swimming was rather difficult, we explored other beaches on the island and, other than our beach at the house, our other favorite was Ten Bay Beach. There were beach chairs, snorkel gear, plenty of towels and everything you need to cook meals during your stay. The house was fully stocked. Just bring a few clothes, sunscreen and some bug spray with deet for the no see ums (only bothered us two nights because there was always a nice breeze). We loved having our coffee on the deck overlooking the beach and spent the days under the thatched hut on the beach listening to music or enjoying a good book. We rented a nice car from the property manager who works for Barbara and all went well. Working with Barbara made our vacation stress free and we had a very memorable week and plan to return at some point in the future.
