Well, the previous reviewers said it all really. I would just add that since I travel on my own and do not drive, staying at LB was perfect: the supermarket is a short walk away (and if you've got heavy bags, the local guys would give you a lift!), the library where one can get online or borrow a book is less than 5 min walk away also. It takes 30 min to walk to the other side of the island - to the Atlantic Ocean. I walked there and back every afternoon...
The apartment itself is basic but has all the necessary stuff in there. The little landscaped garden and the views are so relaxing! The only thing you need to do is always check if the glass door overlooking the garden and the road is locked properly (my lock wasn't very good). Although crime is very low on Eleuthera, being careful pays off.
It also helps if upon checking in, you would use an insect killer liquid. I always do it if I am renting a bungalow in the middle of the garden as you never know who might be hiding behind the cupboards (they get in just because they can!). In LB case, when I returned from a walk, I found a cockroach - he size of a dog - dead on the kitchen floor! Other than that, there were no other unpleasant creatures lurking in the dark corners.
Getting a few good mozzie repellents would be very useful too as they always come in the evening!
