Gaulding Cay Beach, like all beaches in the Bahamas, is public. Tourists and locals (particularly on local holidays) will visit this beautiful beach, but more often than not you will have it to yourself. As the beach access road is beside Moonflower, cars may be parked there. However, more often than not, the beach will be completely deserted and you will have it entirely to yourself. Moonflower is located two miles from the village of Gregory Town. Gregory Town has the best gift shop on the island, Pam’s Island Made Gift Shop, featuring handmade art and crafts from around the Bahamas. Nearby restaurants and night spots include The Cove, newly renovated and featuring continental cuisine with Caribbean flair and an infinity edge pool. The Rainbow Inn is famous for its steaks and fresh vegetables from its organic garden. It offers live entertainment several nights a week, and is frequented by the island’s favorite musical celebrity. Also nearby is Daddy Joe’s, a local bar and night spot just down the road. A 15-minute drive takes you to The Bluff, which has the biggest supermarket on the island. A 20-minute drive plus a short water-taxi ride takes you to Harbour Island, with its many restaurants, shops, and straw market.

We spent a week staying at Moonflower in early January. The house worked well for us, as a family. We were a group of three couples. There was plenty of room and privacy. The house is situated on a beautiful beach where you can relax and enjoy the beauty all around you.

We spent a fantastic week at Moonflower. The location/setting was great. Our party included our 17-month old grandson. What a great beach for him. No waves-just clear, warm, shallow water to play in. The house itself was great with A/C in each bedroom and in living areas. We enjoyed the benefits of having a grill in the backyard and a washer/dryer available for our use. We will be back!!

We flew into North Eleuthera and had a rental car waiting. We stopped for groceries in our way. When we arrived at the house, we were greeted by Lady Di who showed us around. The house was perfect and it was right on the beach. The AC was nice and cool. We swam everyday and went snorkeling around Gaulding Cay which was surrounded by tropical fish, starfish and rays. This was the perfect quiet family vacation. We chartered a boat one day with Captain Ryan for a day and went fishing and sight seeing and snorkeling around the island. There is a TV DVD player at the house but there is not an HDMI plug into TV and there is no Satellite. WiFi at the house is a bit spotty and the DVD player does not play Blue Ray. If you want to watch anything on TV bring it on DVD. The house comes with a 5 gallon water cooler and 5 gallons of water. We plan on going back next year!

I rented Moonflower house for my 50th birthday and brought a few friends and it couldn't have been more perfect! The house is large and comfortable and very clean and is located on the most beautiful beach I have visited in Eluthera. I wish I never had to leave and all my guests felt the same way. Lovely decor, comfortable rooms and beds, excellent air conditioning, big kitchen and an outdoor shower..what else do you need? Lady Di is an absolute delight and so are her sauces and jellies, don't miss trying them! We will be back for sure!!
