Lovely home, exceptional service
This house was exactly as described in the listing. The home owner Sara has great communication before and during the trip! The property managers are also close and extremely helpful. Truly exceptional service. The shallow water was great for the kids and it was FULL of wildlife to discover. The paddle board and kayaks were fun. There are several beaches close by that were worth the day trip!
If you are up for adventure and like to be off the beaten path then this place is for you! If you like close access to restaurants and stores then maybe look elsewhere. There are a very small handful of options in Tarpum Bay but they have limited menus, hours, and days of operation. We went to go get fish from the local fish stand at Tarpum Bay but they were sold out by 2pm that day so we had to try another day. Instead we went to a place close to the house that had take-aways but they were out of fish. This sort of thing/scenario is pretty normal on the island.
Hi Anne, thank you so much for the wonderful review. We always try our best to make you have a fantastic vacation!
We hope to have you soon as our guests!
We wish you the best!

The views are incredible, the house is well appointed, comfortable, and has lots of space. The beach & water are great, perfect place to just hang out, float, or kayak around. Sara was a great host, and was very responsive to our questions. Would definitely rent here again!
Thanks for the wonderful review, we are really happy that you enjoyed our home and the beach. We always do our best to make our guests happy.
We wish you the best and look forward to seeing you at our house!

There simply aren't words to describe what an amazing home this was!! The house was beautiful, comfortable, equipped with everything we needed ... and the view was absolutely incredible. There was really no need to venture far from the house, because the beach in the backyard was so breathtaking. We loved the kayaks (especially sunset cruises in the kayaks), paddle boarding, and snorkeling for shells & sand dollars in the crystal clear water. For meals, we enjoyed buying fish right off the docks and grilling it at home. This was the most carefree, relaxing vacation we have ever had!! We will definitely be back!
A few other highlights:
-The property owners were fantastic and provided us with so much helpful information. We also appreciated being able to rent a car directly from them.
-We did leave the house for one excursion to Lighthouse Beach. The road was a little rough but the beach was spectacular!! It was almost too beautiful to believe!
-We didn't eat out often, but we did enjoy the Rainbow Inn, the Sunset Inn, and the Wild Orchid.
We enjoyed every single second of our stay. Can't wait to do it again!!
Hi Erica, thank you so much for the wonderful review to you and your family. We are really happy that you were good at our home and that you really enjoyed our beach and all the accessories we provide including the car :) We look forward to having you again as our guests !!!
We wish you the best!
This place definitely deserves 10 out of 5 stars. It was easily our best Caribbean vacation out of about a dozen trips we've taken there. Amazing house, amazing beach and absolutely amazing service by Sara. My husband and I and our 2 kids (2 and 4) went for our honeymoon and wanted the perfect location and this place did not disappoint at all. The decor and ambience were beautiful as was the layout of the house. All the rooms were a lot larger than we thought they would be from the pictures and the beds were super comfortable king sized beds. The beach truly was one of the best on the island and it the water stayed shallow for quite a while which was great for our kids. It was really fun for he kids to be able to just go outside and play in the sand and we could easily keep an eye on them from the house. There were enough places with shade on the beach that we didn't have to worry about sun protection every time that they went out. Ken, the very kind property manager, had the beach cleaned for us if there was a storm and some seaweed washed up on the beach and he was extremely helpful with any questions or requests that we had. Best of all he gave us complete privacy so it really felt like we had the whole beach/sea to ourselves which we were really grateful for (though he was such a genial man that I would not have minded seeing him more). As we went in December it was great to have a hot tub for the night time as the temperature could dip to the low-mid 20s (celcius). Having such an expansive view of a night sky absolutely filled with stars while sitting in a hot tub right next to the Caribbean sea is a surreal experience. There's a ton of things to do on the island and some great places to eat, so make sure to do some research on what to do while you're there.
As I said, the only thing that compared to the amazingness of the house was Sara's customer service. She answered any questions that we had in a very timely manner and was willing to help us with any request that we had. Our original flight was cancelled and we were put on an earlier flight and she was very helpful finding an alternative place to stay (as hers was occupied) and even helped us get a car for the extra day. When she found out that we were celebrating our honeymoon and that our child was having a birthday when we were there she even had a couple special surprises waiting for us at the house. I would 100% recommend this place to anyone.
Hello Marisa and family, Thanks for this amazing review, we are really moved by the nice words and we are happy that you enjoyed our hard work, we try to do our best.
It's nice to hear that you enjoyed both the house and the beach and the sea; it's true he's right for the children it's incredible even our children love to stay on the beach and in the sea so calm and it's nice to watch them even from the house.
You are a fantastic family and we were really pleased to have you as our guests, you are always welcome and we hope to see you soon and to hear from you soon.
Merry Christmas and happy new year to all of you, we wish you the best for the years to come.
With affection Sara Alessandro Edoardo and Eleonora
We loved our stay. I would totally recommend this place to anyone looking for a getaway. If you want lots of nightlife, definitely not for you. If you want lots of touristy convenience, definitely not for you. If you have the tiniest sense of adventure and want to go somewhere not a lot of tourists go, then this is the place for you!
As far as specifics, we ate at Barbie's in Tarpum Bay and Sammie's in Rocksound, and would totally recommend both. Super nice people with really good food. We explored a number of other places: Cape Eluethera was fairly forgettable, Ten Bay Beach was nice but not really all that much better than the beach at the house (!), Club Med Beach was pretty amazing, and then Lighthouse Beach may have been the most amazing place i've ever seen. It was the hardest to get to (like i said, bring your spirit of adventure) but absolutely 100% worth it.
We also did the Friday night fish fry in Governors Harbour. It was fine, but honestly nothing special, really just a gathering of all of the other American tourists in the central part of the island.
We came on a romantic anniversary getaway but i'd also recommend this place to people with kids. We're even talking about how to come back with our own kids!
The house is great, the local places and people were awesome. Totally recommend!
Hi James, thanks for this wonderful review, we are happy that you have wonderfully spent your anniversary in our home. We are waiting for you as soon as possible, you are always welcome.
We wish you the best.
warm greetings to your whole family.

Exactly as advertised and more!
Just returned from 8 days at La Bella Vita with my wife, three daughters and my parents. This was our first visit to Eleuthera and it was a trip we'll all be talking about for some time to come. Can't say enough good things about Sara, the property manager, Ken, as well as the property itself. My girls (ages 8, 4, 3) loved the beach behind the house - kayaking, paddle boarding swimming in calm clear water and finding sand dollars galore! The house is just as advertised - clean, modern, spacious and with all the necessary towels, beach gear, toys, snorkel gear etc. We rented their SUV and they even provided the car seats/boosters for our kids. Pack incredibly light (we regrettably didn't) because they have everything including a new washer/dryer. Even small conveniences like the countertop water dispenser for the jugs of purified water that can be purchased at any of the grocery stores were very much appreciated. The location in Tarpum Bay is pretty perfect. Easy to go south to Rock Sound, Cape Eleuthera or Lighthouse Beach and only 25 minutes north to Governors Harbor or 1h 40min to Gene's Bay Dock (ferry to Spanish Wells)
As much as I'd love to rate Sara's property low to ensure more availability for me, they have more than earned all five stars. Book their house, rent their SUV, pack light, explore the island, relax and have a great time!
Hi Brian and family, thank you so much for the wonderful review. You are exceptional people and I hope to meet you in the future. We are happy that you enjoyed our work.
We look forward to seeing you for another holiday.
I wish you the best
Sara, Alessandro and family
Located right on one of the most beautiful beach carribean swallow the property is enough to seacluded enyjoy your desert salife on just 3 miles from the most characteristic and historic settlement of Eleuthera Tarpum Bay. You can walk to Tarpum Bay directly from the interrupted beach to enjoy beautiful walking and sea landscape, eat a conch salad or waiting the fishermen at the dock to buy from they the daily's catch, choice to eat to someone of the typical restaurant of the village . Just 5 minutes on the car you can visit the wonderful beach of Ten Bay and Winding bay.
