We enjoyed this fabulous home . It has a great central room and kitchen, bedrooms with ensuite bathrooms, and an unbeatable beachfront location on calm protected Atlantic waters. And of course, the unique and amazing Columbus and Delphine. We were only there for only a few days when our stay was unexpectedly cut short due to issues at home. We were so sad to leave. Our gracious host helped us rearrange our travel plans and even issued us a refund for the unused days.

I travelled to High Tide with my husband, two sons aged 2.5 and 7, brother-in-law and 11 year old nephew. We have previously stayed closer to GH so we’re a bit skeptical if staying further south but we absolutely loved this place! I would have been happy not even leaving the property!! There are also plenty of day trips to do from here and grocery stores nearby and restaurants. We enjoyed preparing our own meals - fresh lobster and conch! We had brought some frozen meat with us which worked out perfectly. We also had a Bahamian meal prepared for us by Elaine that was delicious! Had dinner and lunch at Wild Orchid and enjoyed very much. The lay-out of this property is just amazing. Privacy from neighbours. Privacy from other family members! But also an amazing central living area for all to congregate at the end of a day of beaching. 10 steps down to a gorgeous beach. Very kid friendly+++ Put the kayaks to good use! Manager Columbus provided us with a mini van for the week which was perfect for getting around. Delphine was very easy to get ahold of and always helpful. Cleaning mid week was a lovely treat! The noseeums were a nuisance at dusk and dawn but it was also very calm our whole week here. There were also a few critters in the kitchen but I imagine that comes with the territory. Would love to have had a water cooler so as to use larger (and recyclable) jugs of water. A larger BBQ and bunk beds in the kids room would also be awesome! Having said that, I can’t wait to come back again. This place was an absolute dream. Would HIGHLY recommend to anyone. Thank you for sharing your paradise with us.

We had a great New Year’s trip! This was our third time on Eleuthera, and Winding Bay is now our official favorite place to stay! The owners are great to work with, and Elaine prepared a wonderful meal for us one evening. We will be back!

I don’t think I can explain how amazing the location of this listing is in this brief summary, but I will try. First and foremost, the pics included with this listing do not do it justice at all!!! This beautiful home is extremely easy to get to, yet its tucked away in the south side of the bay just enough to where one could easily forget there is a grocery store with everything you could possibly need just down the road. We were fortunate enough to be able to explore the entire island multiple times while we were there and experience the full on beauty it has to offer. One thing I was personally concerned about when reading past reviews regarding this listing were the no-seeum’s. However, if you plan accordingly and know what to expect you will not notice them at all and those reviews were not accurate. If your looking for a true cultural experience of the out islands in the Bahamas, this location is what you have been looking for!! I could on and on about how absolutely amazing everything was from the day trips to Light House Point, Queen’s bath, Hatchet bay cave, Glass window bridge and all the way up to Spanish Wells and how we were treated by the property management and care takers because they went above and beyond what was required of them. Given all off this, I am going to leave out some of the best details of our trip and stay at Hightide because I would hate to spoil the many adventures that await you upon your arrival to Hightide & the beautiful Island of Eleuthera. However one secret I will share, just north of Glass Window bridge you will fine Glass Window Bar & Grill. I highly recommend stopping by and enjoying everything they have to offer!!! The thin space!!! If you know what this means then you know

Thank you, High Tide, for accommodating our family of 6. The house is in a very peaceful location. Winding Bay was the perfect body of water to wake up to in the morn, and rest at in the evening. The house was plenty spacious, providing ample privacy for all bedrooms. The outdoor showers were the only ones we used. Though the neighboring houses are close, you would never know it due to the lush vegetation. There was nothing that we needed that the house didn't have. There are many beautiful beaches nearby, including Paw Paw Beach and Lighthouse Beach a little further south. But if you don't want to drive around, High Tide offers a variety of surf a few steps away. The Bay itself is calm with an occasional turtle or ray sighting. We only saw other people a couple of times. Walking a few minutes south along the Atlantic Coast are gorgeous beaches. Also, one of our favorite journeys, which we took often, was floating down the cut to Half Sound just before low tide, hanging out on a sandbar, and floating(on our backs) back home. Half sound always had turtles a plenty. There is a small grocery store about three miles away for essentials. Better to journey down to Rock Sound if you want fruits and vegetables. Two things to watch out for while in Eleuthera. The No See Ums are pretty brutal in the morning and evening, but they never bothered us when we were near the water. The other- garbage, and I see this as all of our problem, not just Eleuthera's. Many of the beaches are strewn with garbage from storms, cruise ships, tourists, etc. The beauty still abounds, but just trying to paint the whole picture. Thank you so much for sharing your beautiful island with it's incredible sand and crystal clear waters!!!

Our family had never stayed longer than a week anywhere and we would deter how it would go. This home, location, locals, Columbus the property manager and everything about it was amazing! My husband, myself and our 4 kids had so much fun snorkelling right off of the private beach, eating fresh coconuts, fresh mangos and the fresh fish and seafood catch that my sons would bring in from the water daily. We had a lovely conch dinner made for us from conch we caught and we explored turtle beach, local restaurants and even drove to jump into the blue hole! We will be back it was our favourite vacation ever!

Exactly as described. Well maintained, fully equipped and spacious home on a bay that only has 11 houses. In addition to the sandy beach which is a 1 minute walk down a path, there is a back channel and lagoon nearby that is quite calm and an interesting adventure. A car is essential as the location is secluded and not walking distance from provisions. The bay was calm most days -- good for kids -- but when the wind shifted to the north we had quite a few waves. One of our party was susceptible to bug bites and got quite an angry army of them on her arms and legs. One of our party got no bites...so come prepared if you are tasty to the little "no see ums."

High Tide Villa had more than enough amenities for our party of 5. We swam in the bay, used the kayaks and paddle boards, did some snorkeling and thoroughly enjoyed the cabana. Columbus was most helpful in getting us into the right airport (Rock Sound), transporting us to the house and renting us a car. Lily was an excellent housekeeper, good conversationalist and a pretty good singer as well. One of our party is an entertainer and Lily joined him in song on a couple of occasions. We ate delicious fresh snapper and lobster bought from the pier at Tarpum Bay which we prepared in the kitchen at High Tide Villa. We drove to a rather remote beach south of Northview Inn & Resort and were rewarded with a private swim and walk along the beach. To say that the road to the beach is rustic is an overstatement of its condition but it was a true adventure. We also ate at restaurants in Rock Sound including Sammy's, The Frigate and Rose's Northview Inn . All were very good with Rose taking top billing as both cook and singer. We drove to Governors Harbor for a day - the town and adjoining Cupid's Cay are well worth the trip. Club Med Beach is beautiful for both swimming and walking; ate lunch at The Buccaneer, excellent food. Initially we were mildly disappointed that we could not walk to any of the places mentioned but getting out and about in the car proved lots of fun and gave us some great sightseeing we would have otherwise missed. All told this was among our best vacations ever; when we return to Eleuthera we will stay again at High Tide Villa.

We just spent a great week at High Tide! The weather was sunny and warm every day. We were able to enjoy the kayaks and the paddle board but as the week went on, the winds picked up. Eleuthera offers lots to explore. Columbus arranged a van for the 6 of us and we went out every day to explore different areas of the island. We went up to Spanish Wells and Harbour Island one day and went south to Cape Eleuthera another day. OceanHole is not far from the house and we jumped in there. Another day was spent on the beaches around Governor's Harbour with lunch at Tippys. The house has a beautiful layout! The kitchen was well equipped with good quality cookware, knives and utensils. We had dinner at home every night and enjoyed lounging around in the Great room. The house is well maintained, very clean with lots of fresh linens and towels. We were able to get some fresh fish from nearby Tarpum Bay one day but it was limited due to the high winds and the fisherman couldn't go out as much. As the week progressed we discovered more small stores to pick up a few groceries. The location of the house is lovely, the beach felt like our own and we were always happy to come ' home' at the end of our day. At the end of our bay we saw lots of turtles. We would definitely go back to High Tide! The pictures don't do it justice. It was such a pleasant surprise to see those beautiful views. One week was too short!!!
