Amazing location, great features for the outdoor lover
This property is sprawling and sleeps 8-10 easy. We loved having 3 separate full bathrooms. The split plan is very cool with all the bedrooms on one side, and the kitchen, family, and dining on the other side. All connected by an outdoor courtyard.
The Bay is stunning and teeming with wildlife. Sea Turtles, Sting Rays, Grouper, Snapper, Star Fish etc.. all at your back door. The boat that is included is a great extra.
The service provided was also excellent. Tom the owner is extremely responsive, and the property manager onsite is excellent.
The air conditioners struggle to keep the bedrooms comfortable during the day. Forget an afternoon nap, the rooms are so warm because of the afternoon sun beaming in.
There are so many bugs it is crazy. Flys, Mosquitos, Locusts, beattles, you name it they are abundant. Not a big deal for me but the kids were always worried.
The kitchen is in need of some upgrades, it is probably 30 years old or more.
I would assume a winter stay would be more comfortable as the A/C would be more efficient and bug population would be cut in half easy.
Overall I would recommend this place if you dont have little kids who are scared of bugs, and you are okay with a kitchen that is not very modern and needs some updating.. We had a good time and the property was really in such a good location on the water that outweighs the other stuff. I mean that is the reason you go to the Bahamas.
Wonderful time at Baycienda
We had a great time at Baycienda. We were picked up at the airport by a lovely couple who were extremely helpful throughout the stay. The house and the place were great, however somewhat old.
The car had seen better days, but worked and got all 8 of us around. We also had good fun with the boat and it took us to Harbour Island. Definitely a place we will remember.
Had a wonderful time and enjoyed all that Baycienda has to offer. The views and water were outstanding. The use of the boat and toys added to a truly amazing vacation. Our host Harry couldn’t do enough to assist our family with all our needs. We look forward to visiting again soon.
Amazing vacation, awesome hosts and lodging
We just returned from our first visit to Eleuthera and had an amazing stay at Baycienda. We could have chosen a more modern property with fancy granite countertops and a dishwasher, but our vacation wouldn't have been nearly as memorable.
First, the hosts were fantastic. Tom, the owner picked us up at the airport after a long travel day and greeted us warmly, as if we were family. He showed us around the property, pointed us to restaurants and steered us towards a nearby lagoon with a rope swimg we kayaked/paddleboarded to with the boys. When the boat had a minor issue, he had someone out that night to fix it and took my husband on a ride to Harbor Island, about 10 minutes away by boat, and showed him where he parks. We were sad to see Tom leave a few days into our stay, but he flew his friend Harry in and he was just as great. He took us out on the boat to fish, with his personal fishing rods and bait, and made sure that both of our boys got to reel in some fish with him - they were thrilled! And, he took us to a special spot to find some conch shells, which turned into a great fishing spot for us. What an amazing experience! Our 5-year-old would love one more day fishing with Harry! He also took my husband snorkeling and fishing while the boys napped. Both Harry and Tom were there as much or as little as we wanted, even joining us for an occasional meal.
As for the property - the negatives are like a hotel - some of the beds are more comfortable than others, there are some cracks in the walls, and some chipped paint, and some of the doors have trouble sliding, but none of that mattered to us. Our boys loved playing in the pool and feeding turtles and fish from the dock. They got to see sting rays, barracuda, starfish, needlefish and even sharks swim right past the dock! We made most of our breakfasts and lunches at the house and the big open floor plan was great for us. We played games every night in the "great room" overlooking the water. The view from the property was even better than we imagined.
We loved the location - about 20 minutes from restaurants and a couple of shops in Gregory Town, half of which is a rough island dirt road, but fine. We spent about half of every day around the house and explored nearby the other half. I wish I could write more!
Tom and Harry, thank you for your hospitality, especially with the boys and my mom. It didn't go unnoticed. We can't wait to return! Shannon (and family)
Great family spot...all the amenities really make this place for a family. Easy access to other play spots too...
We had a fantastic time at Baycienda this year, it was our first trip out of the states with the kids and having the vehicle included as well as the boat was brilliant! The house is great for families, the layout of living space separate from bedrooms is perfect for early risers but also for sleepers! Having the kids be able to fish off the dock every morning (while watching the sea turtles swim around) and then paddle down to the lagoon in the kayak and on paddle boards Tom provides to swing off the rope swing was incredible! We took the boat to Harbor Island twice for lovely dinners and a day on the pink sand beach! Tom was incredibly helpful and a great host—offers the inside scoop on where to go and what to do, which is priceless! Just one note—the grocery store and liquor stores are close to the airport and I would recommend hitting those on your way to the house if you can (especially if traveling with kids)—there are some basics at the gas station in Gregory Town and you can go to the store on Harbor Island too in the boat (this one is great for produce) but the house is somewhat remote in terms of stores/restaurants in general. Daddy Joes is a great local restaurant option but still about 15 minute drive! Loved this place and Tom and will certainly return!
