John and Kerry Koelenbeek, with their sister, Joyce Clement, had a dream many years ago of owning a small piece of paradise on a tropical island. In 2007, that dream began to come true with the purchase of this piece of property off the Queen's Highway in GHB. We are still in awe of the beauty and peacefulness that greets us each time we drive up to Caribbean Blue. Sitting on the porch or down by the water with a good book, gardening, cooking, or exploring the beaches are the many ways we continue to enjoy this wonderful island.

What an amazing vacation to Eleuthera and I enjoyed my stay at Caribbean Blue. The setting is so peaceful and relaxing. When I first arrived and walked into the porch, I saw a sign that says “Welcome to Paradise” – so true, it definitely was paradise. The house was clean and tidy and had a well-stocked kitchen. Pictures do not always do justice as the house is nicer than it shows.
The screened in porch was so nice to sip coffee on in the morning or relax at night after a day at the beach. The views were beautiful and the sunsets amazing. We even saw a dolphin one morning. I loved the outdoor shower. It was nice to sit under the Palapa and relax after a swim or snorkeling or have a drink and watch the sunset.
Caribbean Blue is in the perfect location. Located in the middle of the island so it was convenient to visit many of the beaches Eleuthera has to offer. The house is located close to Governor’s Harbor to shop for groceries, liquor, and souvenirs. It has a nice bakery and several good restaurants.
I would recommend either a 4-Wheel drive or an SUV to get to some of the beaches. The beaches were absolutely beautiful and there was hardly anyone there when we went. It was like we had the beaches to ourselves. The beaches and views on Eleuthera are breathtaking. Again, paradise!
The owners were very nice and helpful. The Information Book they provided listed places to go and see on the beautiful island of Eleuthera along with helpful information on the house. We went for two weeks and I am so glad we did. One week is not enough time to see all Eleuthera has to offer. This vacation was a retirement celebration but I would love to go back and stay at Caribbean Blue again. I recommend Caribbean Blue for anyone going to Eleuthera. Thank you for a wonderful retirement vacation.

You are so welcome! Thanks for selecting our home for your celebration. Come back soon!
This property provides the perfect escape from reality. Pictures and words are not enough to describe the feelings of total relaxation derived from spending time at Caribbean Blue! The house provides seclusion, while at the same time, it's mid-island location makes it easy to explore the Island. The house is very well stocked with all amenities. The huge screened porch with awesome views, Caribbean breeze, and sounds of nature was our main hangout from coffee in the morning to cocktails in the evening. Another not to miss treasure is taking a dip in the clear blue water right in front of the house.
Easy to follow information and maps about Island attractions and beaches to explore are available at the house. Excellent communication with owners!
Our stay was well beyond our expectations!

Thanks so much! You appreciate the uniqueness of the island and our home like we do!
Great stay at Caribbean Blue! Loved the house! The screen porch was great allowing Bahamian breezes to flow through the house. The setting was extremely private, yet close to Governor's Harbour. Proximity to excellent beaches was also a plus. We really like the center island location. The house was amply stocked with supplies.
The winds were from the southeast with the waves too strong for our comfort level to kayak to Levi Island and to snorkel at the shore rocks. So we just went to the Atlantic side and enjoyed some of the most phenomenal beaches (French Leave (Old Club Med) and Twin Coves.
Next time, I will bring some fishing gear to try my hand at fishing. Numerous locals and people in the guest book indicated good fishing right from shore at the house.
We also recommend a four wheel drive vehicle--we rented a Jeep Grand Cherokee. The driveway is steep. Four wheel drive is just recommended if you want to get to the beaches and explore all the island has to offer.
The Owner's Manual was extremely helpful providing great information about the house and the island. We thoroughly enjoyed our stay and came back to the states with a more relaxed frame of mind.

So glad to hear that you enjoyed your vacation at Caribbean Blue.
Pictures do not do this slice of Paradise any justice! It is an amazing home on the water with every amenity you could ask for. Not only that, but the owners AND caretakers were super easy to work with and communicate with. Great floorplan, great porch, great location just north of Governor's Harbour and smack dab in the middle of Eleuthera so a perfect jump point for exploring all the island all the way around. Definitely rent a car!!

Very comfortable waterside property with Stunning views and exploration to the 10th degree. Teenage kids jumped into saffire hole, snorkeled, found numerous pink sand beaches with 4 wheel drive music pumping; great family memories. Owners are so friendly and helpful. Thank you!

Glad you all enjoyed Eleuthera and were able to explore so much of the island!
