“This vacation rental, Horizon House, is a home away from home ...”

My wife and I and our three children, ages 3 to 8 years old, thoroughly enjoyed our stay at this magnificent property. This was our fourth visit there and it just keeps getting better and better! Our kids never want to leave and have already asked if we could extend our stay next year! The views from the house overlooking the sea and harbor are spectacular, and the clear starry nights are breathtaking. The owners are always upgrading the property's amenities which continue to pleasantly surprise us. Horizon House has made our visits to Eleuthera something to be sweetly anticipated each year.

Thank you so much for your honest and very kind review. We really appreciate you taking the time to let us know your opinion of our home. You seem to love it almost as much as we do! We also appreciate the great condition you left the house in. There was hardly any tidying or cleaning left for us! After reading your review you are now the official honorary Horizon House Poet in Residence and you have our nomination as the Poet Laureate of Eleuthera!! We look forward to you staying at Horizon House again!

“Horizon House view was the best part of the rental”
Reviewed 25 March 2015 for a stay in March 2015

Horizon House did have an amazing view. Although, I believe the description of the house on the FlipKey site was a bit misleading:

3 bedrooms - one bedroom was literally an over sized closet with bunk beds.
The cloths dryer was a string strung on the porch. At a dangerous level. Three of us walked into and were stopped by the string on our necks.
Swimming from the property was non existent except if it was dead calm at low tide. The cut through in the coral was rugged and dangerous in any type of wind and surf.
No beach chairs or kayaks were left for guest use.
The washer and dryer were locked and guests were not permitted to use.
The driveway was barely navigable in the sedan we rented. Four wheel drive should have been encouraged.
The kitchen cabinets and closets were jammed packed full of stuff and it was hard to locate utensils and other items.

For the price it was worth it. The owners seemed very eager to please and did communicate quickly. Basically the house was secluded, comfortable and clean. The view was the best thing about the house.

How easy was it to book the property? How helpful were the directions to the property?
How easy was key pickup/access to the property? Overall condition of the property

Liked best: The view
Liked least: The fact that there was no swimming from the property

We appreciate it when our guests provide reviews as it allows us to provide a better guest experience based on our guests' needs. We respond in order to clarify any discrepancies and indicate measures we have taken in order to improve the guest experience.

The third bedroom is a bunk room and is advertised as such. It has minimal circulation space and is best suited to children and teenagers although the bunks are full sized and can accommodate adults.

There are full sized washer and dryer available for guest use. Upon arrival two keys (very similar in appearance) are provided. One for the front door and the other for the laundry room.

Our family always have a good time swimming in the cut/beach whenever we are in residence.

Beach chairs nor kayaks are part of our offering however in the future beach chairs will be made available however kayaks are not available.

Thank you for taking the time to provide a review. We have had many direct comments from guests indicating how enjoyable their experience has been unfortunately they have not posted on the Flipkey site.

We appreciate your comments and thank you for choosing Horizon House for your stay.

Kindest regards,

Paul and Denise
