Perfect in Every Way
One Palm Hill is a stunningly lovely property that was the PERFECT place for our family of five to spend their first Tropical Christmas. The house itself is flooded with light, beautifully laid out, with much attention and thought put into decorating it with style while keeping it homey and comfortable. Every detail was considered, and the place was immaculate. The entire property was so beautiful, from the pool area to the landscaping that provided the perfect amount of privacy, it was like being at our own resort. The kitchen was top of the line and well stocked besides, the bathrooms well designed and attractive, the bedrooms all comfortable---each with their own bathroom, and each a corner location with two big windows for good circulation, individual airconditioners for maximum comfort, I could go on and on.
In addition to being one of the most attractive and comfortable houses we have ever rented, I was struck with how unusually well cared for we felt in terms of the hospitality that we extended to us, not only by the property management company and the caretaker for the house, but the owner herself! At every step of the rental process I felt completely connected and supported, which is particuularly nice when you are going out of the country. With their help I was even able to arrange to have a live Christmas tree delivered to the house just before our arrival---something I could never have managed myself from so far away, and which meant a huge deal to my children.
Finally, for those considering the island of Eleuthera, I can recommend it heartily to anyone who is looking for an authentic Bahamanian experience---few tourists, breathtaking, deserted beaches just minutes away by foot or car, a friendly local community. If you don't want to see potholes or a few empty lots, if you want chain restaurants or brightly lit supermarkets, if you need 4-lane highways and your phone to work 100% of the time, this might not be the island for you, but if you are open to a little of unpredictability, I can assure you that I cannot imagine a more beautiful, peaceful, gracious base of operations for your Eleutheran adventure than One Palm Hill!
