“On the Atlantic side”
Reviewed 3 March 2013 for a stay in January 2013
3
people found this review helpful

There are actually two cottages very close to each other and there are shutters which obscure a lot of the westerly view. The living room could be more comfortable if set up with chairs and/or love seat rather than two narrow day beds. All that being said, it is a very relaxing place, spotlessly clean and comfortable. The beaches of Eleuthera, on the Atlantic side have an incredible amount of plastic littering them. You can not walk ten feet without seeing plastic bottles, flip flops, buoys, etc. However, you can walk for miles on the beach without seeing another person. In January the water isn't as warm as I like it, but it is definitely swimable! The color of the water is gorgeous and varies throughout the day.

So glad that you chose to travel to Eleuthera over St. John this year and experienced all that our island has to offer. We were so pleased with your total enjoyment of Cayo Loco and your exuberance when we came to check you out after your stay with us. Thank you for your positive review and hope to see you again at our island paradise!

“Vacation of a Lifetime”
Reviewed 2 August 2012 for a stay in July 2012

My wife and I spent our 5th anniversary at Cayo Loco. It was the best vacation we've ever had. It wasn't the kind of vacation where you order room service and go out for entertainment at any hour. Instead, it was relaxing in paradise. Examples: napping on the front porch to the sound of the ocean; swimming in water so calm and clear, that pictures make it look like there's no water at all (Ten Bay); the adventure of trying to find things on the island (also Ten Bay); learning about the unique culture of the island. I could go on.

The first couple of days, we did little more than stare at the sky and the ocean. There was a beautiful full moon over the ocean at night. We saw sunrise and moonrise from the front porch. Eventually, the moon waned enough to where we could see a myriad of stars. The sights and sounds were mesmerizing.

Each day we at least walked along the beach. About every other day, we went swimming. Cayo's beach is a great Atlantic-side beach. After we visited Ten Bay, we discovered that the calm Carribean side was our preference. Unfortunately though, Ten Bay was a bit more popular (6-8 other people on the beach, instead of 0-4 at Cayo).

There are some great restaurants on the island. We tried several, including: Rainbow Inn with Spider and the Boys playing, Sky Beach, Cocodimama's, and Aqua Pazza (on Harbour Island). We also grabbed a pizza to take home from Mate and Jenny's. Sky Beach was our favorite, very chill, and right down the beach. The best value of the places we ate was Mate and Jenny's, and the pizza was great.

We visited Harbour Island, but it was not to our liking. Much busier and somewhat commercialized. For example, chairs for rent on the main beach. We had breakfast at Arthur's Bakery, toured around on a golf cart, and ate lunch at Aqua Pazza before grabbing a ferry back to 'Lutra proper. There was a lot on the 'Briland we missed seeing, but we were ready to get back to the serenity of our home away from home.

The fish fry was another event we attended, but we left before it got going in full force. There were probably a hundred people there, too many for my liking. ;) We did watch them make conch salad right there on the beach. Just don't get too close or the conch man will chase you around with conch nethers and try to get you to eat it, haha. The fish was good, even though it was still staring at me as it was being eaten.

Driving on the island is an experience all to itself. The proper lane to driving in is the left lane. In practice, however, it was more like the middle lane was the proper lane, and everyone was in agreement to swerve left when met with other cars. Embellishments aside, people did tend to drive pretty fast down the main road. Going "10-over", I was passed pretty often.

Overall, I would recommend Cayo Loco whole-heartedly for a relaxing get-away. Maureen and Allen were wonderful hosts. I'll be honest: when I first got the information packet with detailed house rules, I was afraid that they would be looking over our shoulder while we were there. Once we got there, I quickly came to realize that the guidelines were actually to help us adapt to the house and make our stay more enjoyable. We were left completely to ourselves, but they were still available to answer our questions. Like I said, wonderful hosts! The house itself is very thoughtfully appointed. From scissors to an iPod dock, we didn't find ourselves lacking anything we came to need.

if you are looking for a place that makes you feel that you´ve left the world behind, this is it. we spent 10 days there in august and by the first morning all our worldly affairs were forgotten. our days consisted of beautiful sunrises from our balcony, walks on our own powder white beach, snorkeling the reefs right out our front door and ice cold kaliks as we watched the sun go down. the house was perfect, not 1 detail was missing, and we felt at home from the moment we stepped inside. we couldnt have asked for cooler hosts, a first class couple that make you feel like old friends.. if you have any doubts about it, dont. it will be a vacation that you´ll remember forever.....
