Lovely Vacation in Eleuthera
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.  Read more

Moonflower review
We absolutely loved Gaulding Cay Beach, especially with little kids. It was your front yard and we greatly enjoyed it. The owner and housekeeper for Moonflower were wonderful to work with. Very nice. However, the house really needed some tlc. The size was great and fit two families perfectly however it was very cluttered, everything seemed very old and on the verge of breaking. When I opened my closet door the first day, it fell off. Linens seemed very old, the fitted sheet barely stayed on the beds. Washing machine took a couple tries to work, front bedrooms air conditioner made clinking noises every couple minutes, front bathroom sink was having trouble draining by the end. It just felt very run down. Read more

Great Week at MoonFlower!
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!! Read more

Everything was good except the beach in front of our house is also a public access beach and there were quite a few people there which is the opposite of what we look for and the reason we choose outer islands Read more

Amazing family getaway!
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!  Read more
