Our Buttonwood Stay We booked 4 condos and the main lodge for my husband's 40th and our daughter's 13th. Matt, was absolutely awesome from day 1. He helped me with the price significantly. When we got there however, there was one room that I got instead of another from what I reserved. In the main lodge's loft, there is no AC which made it uncomfortable for my children, the washing machine was not hooked up and the stove, fridge and sink were dirty. In addition, there was no hot water. In a few of the other condos, there were lizards and bugs issue as well as lack of hot water.<br/>I'm saying all this to let you know that no situation was perfect but this is by far the BEST AND NICEST PLACE IN ELEUTHERA. If you visit, you should do so at this property. They have a pool, golf carts, kayaks, paddle board and bicycles. You didn't have to do anything anywhere else on the island.<br/>Regarding my complaints, they were all corrected as Matt was up after 12am when I made the complaints and by the morning almost everything was addressed. The bonus was that I was given another unit free of charge so I could enjoy more space for me and my guests. Brett never gave up in addressing our issues showing up several times per day to ensure everything works and we are comfortable. What a blessing.<br/>Point is, this is the best place on the island and trust me, I know because we drove everywhere. <br/>THANK YOU BRETT, THANK YOU MATT!<br/>If I were to visit again, it would be Buttonwood Reserve.

The Best Place On The Island We rented the entire Buttonwood Reserve compound for a group of 16 friends. The place is amazing, and perfect for large groups who want a little more privacy than a large resort would allow. The condos were clean and stocked with all the items you'll need to survive your vacation. There is an amazing private beach on the Atlantic side, which was one of our favorite places to chill. I highly recommend Buttonwood, as it really is one of the best places on Eleuthera.

Great time on Eleuthera! Eleuthera Vacation Rentals booked us in a condo at Buttonwood Reserve, which was great! We love the views from the balconies, enjoyed the pool, and relaxed by ourselves on the endless private beach. We've stayed there before and look forward to staying there again!

Buttonwood Reserve Unit 2A "Over the Rainbow" is awesome!!! We just returned from a fabulous stay at Buttonwood Reserve in Eleuthera. This property is very tastefully decorated with excellent views of the Caribbean Sea to the west and the Atlantic Ocean to the east. Sun rises and sun sets are spectacular! We could not have been more pleased with our unit "Over the Rainbow". It is spacious, private, and offers beautiful water views from every window. The property, which sits on an elevated ridge, is well maintained and centrally located in close proximity to restaurants and grocery stores. We enjoyed the pool, which is heated, and we visited several unforgettable nearby beaches. We especially loved our trip to Governor's Harbor where we enjoyed breakfast at The Buccaneer and dinner at the 1648 restaurants. Eleuthera is a unique place with lots of local Bahamian charm. You can definitely feel the love here!

Eleuthera Escape We just returned from a week's stay at beautiful Buttonwood. The condo was very nicely decorated, very comfortable and perfectly suited to our family of 4. Its central location was great for exploring beaches both north and south of James Cistern. The pool was a perfect way to end each day. We took advantage of every amenity Buttonwood offered - private golf cart for enjoying the spectacular Atlantic beach, kayaking and paddle boarding on the Caribbean side. The manager Tia was so responsive and welcoming and caretaker James a most hospitable host. We highly recommend this property for exploring the beauty of Eleuthera.

Fabulous Views and Beautiful Decor Buttonwood was a fantastic place to stay for my husband and me. The decor is light, airy and so well done. Everything you might need was in the condo and the availability of the golf cart was so nice to take to the beautiful beach. The caretaker, Sonia, was helpful and kind and the rest of the staff including James and Perry were also welcoming and friendly. We had a great time on the island and would recommend Buttonwood to anyone looking for a beautifully-maintained home with gorgeous views.

It is accessed via our private, golf-carts only driveway. The condominium comes with a golf cart. On the Caribbean side of our property, almost in your front yard, is a second beach.
