Absolutely perfect - could not be faulted
Truly had a marvellous time in the most quintessential of Bahamain settings.

This was a once in a lifetime trip. French Leave beach is amazing (had it almost exclusively to ourselves the entire time). The house is solid, beautiful, and tastefully decorated. The pool is sweet when you are too lazy to wander down to the beach which is literally a stone's throw away. We had our own private hideaway off the beaten path for the week and it was amazing. The perfect way to celebrate my birthday with a group of my closest friends. And Misty, the property manager, was the most responsive and so helpful in every possible way (from check-in to recommendations to directions to answering all questions)--the ultimate professional. She really went above and beyond to make our stay all the more enjoyable. This rental is a real diamond in the rough. A slice of sophistication and tasteful luxury in a remote location, though not too far from local restaurants and nearby town when you want to be more social.

A group of eleven stayed at Alfred House and Med Point in Feb 2018. Both houses were lovely. They were well supplied with kitchen ware, bed linens, towels and soaps. Christine Rolle led us to them the first time - definitely needed, but it was easy after that using cars rented from Tracy. Christine made us a great Bahamian meal. She and David were very helpful the first night when we lost power for a short time. This was really the only problem we had all week and it was minor.

The Club Med/French Leave Beach was as beautiful as we remembered it from 25 or so years ago, but the snorkeling was not as good - partly due to lots of wind and partly due to fewer colorful fish around. The beach really is quite spectacular - and it is so long that it never seems crowded. At most there may have been another dozen or so people on it at any point in time, and usually fewer than that. Many of the other near-by beaches were totally uninhabited - and the weather was perfect!

The local grocery - Eleuthera Supply - was good for most of what we needed, but the Island Farm store in Palmetto Point was really terrific for fresh spices, vegetables, bread and specialty spreads. The fishing boats in Governor’s Harbor and Tarpum Bay come in around noon-1:30 and were great spots for fresh lobster and grouper. Be sure to bring bug spray to use in the afternoon as the no-see-ums can get you! The Beach Book (two were at the house) were very useful for helping us find beaches for specific qualities (e.g. a shelling beach and a great calm water beach, etc). Norma's in Governor’s Harbor was a good place for local souveniers. We enjoyed dinner at Tippy’s and the Friday Night Fish Fry, but for the most part enjoyed cooking at the houses and enjoying the beautiful surroundings. The stars at night are really quite spectacular!

Here are some recommendations we would make:
Have at least two non-feather

Probably our best vacation to date! Although any time in Eleuthera will be special. Both Alfred House (with pool) and Med Point were 5 star. Super comfortable for our group of 6 + 1. Had everything we needed to cook several meals at home (Lobster night!) and also enjoyed a couple of meals out. Weather and beaches were amazing. French Leave and Twin Coves were favorites. Of course, not wanting to leave when our week was over. Thanks to Misty, Clinton and especially the Owners for listing these lovely homes for rental.

Our group of 10 people couldn't have imagined a more perfect week. French Leave beach was gorgeous. We spent plenty of time on rafts in the shallow areas or just on the beach. There was good snorkeling right there (just south of the small one room cottage on property) if anyone wanted to do that. The morning walks were calm--hardly saw another person.
We spent a decent amount of time at Twin Coves (walk up the road, but beware the dog at the round house) due to the good snorkeling there. We saw rays and turtles and tons of fish. Twin Coves was my favorite.

The house was in wonderful condition. We had a chef come in one night and we ate out the other nights. We cooked breakfast and lunch each day. Kitchen was great. THe bedrooms were also very nice. The AC went out in our bedroom, but it wasn't enough to ruin the trip. We slept with the fan on and the door opened to the main room, so it wasn't too hot. The caretaker was easy to reach and responsive. There was nothing to be done about the AC until after we were gone due to the remote location of the island.

Truly a wonderful home and the best location.

We just spent a week at Alfred house and it was a wonderful place to stay. The location is perfect because it's a five minute drive into Governor's Harbour, but we basically had the beach to ourselves and all the privacy of a very remote location. The house was well equipped. The kitchen had everything one would need and more. Everything was very clean and well maintained. There were some beach chairs and even a few children's beach toys available. Overall, we had a great stay and found Alfred House to be in excellent condition which is saying a lot for any rental villa on the Atlantic ocean in the Bahamas. The minor issues like a tricky door handle or a loose toilet paper roller were trivial. People traveling to Eleuthera or any of the more remote Bahamian islands should know that power outages do occur and are part of the price of enjoying such a pristine and unspoiled location. Alfred House was lovely and we hope to return soon.
