We rented the apartment for two weeks and unfortunately there was a water leak and we were moved into the main house, which of course we enjoyed very much. The gardens are what you would expect at a resort, and the views 60 feet above the ocean are amazing. If you have traveled the bahamas you will not be disappointed and if you have not been you will be amazed.

Response from the owner We are delighted that you enjoyed your stay. Sorry about the water leak that has been repaired but glad that you were able to enjoy the entire house. We hope you will return.
We had simply a wonderful time at Heron Hill. The home was clean and oh, so comfortable! The grounds were gorgeous and the beach only a short staircase away. To make it even better, the caretakers, Andrew and Reta were available for any and all needs. They were unbelievably accommodating and helpful. They gave recommendations on beaches, restaurants and shopping! What do I recommend??? Ten Bay Beach and Twin Cove Beach.... Island Farm, Snorkeling with Da Salty Pig, dinner at 1648, dining at Tippys, the Nature Preserve, oh, the list is simply endless! Thank you Lynne for opening up your lovely home to us for the holiday.

Response from the owner We are very happy that you loved Heron Hill and your vacation on Eleuthera. We hope you will return.
Heron Hill is a sprawling property with stunning tropical gardens and the utmost privacy. Nestled on Banks Road, on the outskirts of Unique Village, on the island of Eleuthera, we were fortunate to rent the delightfully, bright, one bedroom apartment, featuring spectacular views of the Atlantic Ocean. The apartment is connected to the main house, is comfortably furnished, with access to laundry facilities and wifi.
The stunning pool area is only surpassed by the miles of white, baby powder soft sand on the beach, just a few short steps below the cottage. Great exercise for a stroll at low tide. The weather was perfect, sunny and hot and a quiet locale for our wedding anniversary!
The property managers, Reta and Andrew, were extremely attentive and ensured that everything was taken care of in advance.
We would highly recommend Heron Hill to large families, or a couple looking for a relaxing, romantic getaway.
We will definitely be back.

Response from the owner You were wonderful guests and we are very happy that you loved Heron Hill. We would welcome you back any time.
This house is perfect for anyone wanting to get away and relax. The house is clean, the gardens are gorgeous and the views are breathtaking. The caretaker, Andrew, was A+. He even brought me an avocado from his garden which was very thoughtful. The swimming pool was clean and refreshing and perfect for a morning dip. We enjoyed waking up and having our morning coffee on the patio looking out to the turquoise blue Atlantic ocean and spotting rainbows leaping out of the water into the sky. We also enjoyed walking through the 5 acres of gardens and spotting some lovely birds, including the Heron itself. My husband and I travelled with 3 of our parents and the house was spacious enough that we each had our own level and lots of privacy. Lynne was also very easy to work with regarding booking and payments. I'd definitely recommend Heron Hill to anyone and we will be back. Thank you to Lynne, Andrew and Reta for making our stay one we will never forget.

Response from the owner Thank you for your wonderful review. We are so glad that you had a wonderful vacation and we want everyone who stays at Heron Hill to feel like it is their Bahamas home. You were great guests and we hope you will return some day.
Heron Hill is a beautiful property in a very majestic setting. We had one of our most relaxing vacations ever. The house served our purposes beyond expectations. The apartment worked wonderfully for grandparents. The home was very clean and neatly appointed. We hope to return in the near future!!
