Overview & Photos

"Sapodilly" (Unit 1A at the Buttonwood Reserve Oceanfront Condominium Resort) is a lower level unit, that includes a full-surround two-ocean view, facing west over the Caribbean for the sunset and east to the Atlantic for the sunrise. Enjoy stunning ocean views from every room through eight-foot glass sliders and six-foot bay windows. The expansive private decks also feature spectacular sea views in every direction. Children must be age 10 or older to stay in this condominium.

Buttonwood Reserve has access to two beaches. On the Atlantic side is a world-class, 3-mile-long pink-sand beach, pristine without a single house. It is accessed via our private, golf-carts only driveway. All condominiums at Buttonwood come with access to a fleet of golf carts at no charge. On the Caribbean side of our property, almost in your front yard, is a second beach. This beach is small and rather rocky, so not so aesthetic, but the water is as calm as a lake and this shore is perfect for snorkeling, kayaking, paddle boarding, and fishing.

Our resort-style pool is just steps from your condominium. This beautiful landscaped pool is heated for comfortable swimming year round.

The professionally decorated interior of this vacation rental is elegantly furnished, modern, warm and comfortable. The east end of the great room features a modern, open-plan, luxurious kitchen finished in stainless steel and black granite. The kitchen, dining area, and living room have magnificent ocean views in every direction, with water sparkling as far as the eye can see.

The master bedroom is features a large upholstered window seat with magnificent panoramic views of the Caribbean, a perfect spot to relax with a book or morning coffee, or watch the sunset over the sea. The master is furnished with a king bed and equipped with an en-suite full bath. The master has a private door leading to the deck over the Caribbean.

The guest bedroom also features a large window seat with a spectacular view, this one overlooking the Atlantic. The bedroom has a full en-suite bath (which can be accessed from the hall as well). It is furnished with twin beds that can be converted into a king.

Buttonwood Reserve comes with kayaks and a paddle board for use on the sea or in our pond. Bicycles are also provided for riding around the property or to town, less than a mile away. Our retired groundskeeper, Patrick, is an expert fisherman and will take you out fishing in his boat for a half day or full day (extra charges apply.) Grill your catch fresh on our outdoor gas grill near the pool.

Buttonwood Reserve is an easy 15-minute drive from Governor’s Harbour, the main town on the island. Governor’s Harbour has a charming collection of 19th century homes and churches overlooking its historic harbor.

Just a mile from Buttonwood Reserve is the village of James Cistern, which has two grocery stores, a town dock where the fisherman bring their catch every day, a produce stand, and three small local restaurants, Kel-D’s, Lee’s Café, and the new Leorose Sunset Beach Bar and Grill. James Cistern is also the home of Stubb’s famous barbecue, now called Tamarind Tree Grill, every Friday and Saturday, which is not to be missed.

Other restaurants in the area include Pascal’s at boutique luxury resort Sky Beach Club, Tippy’s (international and fusion), 1648 Bar & Grille at French Leave (fine dining for lunch and dinner), The Rainbow Inn (steaks and Monday night brick oven pizza night) and Da Perk Café (café and sandwich shop).

Eleuthera is most famous for its 100 miles of spectacular, deserted beaches. The island, home to just 8000 residents, is safe and friendly. The snorkeling, diving, and fishing on the island are world class. Boating, surfing, and other water sports are also popular. You can rent power boats, sailboats, sea kayaks and bikes. There is excellent sightseeing, as well.

Todd W. from United States recommends this vacation rental.

Buttonwood is a great property and well positioned to enjoy a relaxing vacation in Eleuthera. The property is located very close to James Cistern where there are a few good restaurants (Delish Lifestyle, Mel’s and the local bar) along with grocery stores, a Liquor store and the pier to buy fresh catch each day. Beautiful beaches are both walkable and drivable depending on how far you want to venture and a car is really needed to best enjoy the island.

Lisa P. from United States recommends this vacation rental.

The condo was very clean and located centrally on the island. It is not close to anything, so be prepared to drive for groceries to get anything semi-decent. There is East and Final Grocery and a liquor store close by, but the best grocery store closest is Burrows, in Gov. Harbor, which is 15 minutes away at least. The beach shown in the picture is rocky and you have to cross a highway to access it. We chose to visit other beaches that were less rocky and easier to access: Ten Bay Beach, Cape Eleuthera, and various pull-offs along the way. Gas stations are few and far between, so make sure when you see one, fill up! Brett was terrific and is on property most all of the time and will answer questions and fix things as needed. The condo is well decorated and comfortable. The furniture in the picture on the deck is no longer there, unfortunately, as we were on a working vacation. Instead, there are now white Adirondack chairs, which makes it hard to work from your laptop. There are floaties and some lounge chairs for general use. We did not go to the pool and only used the golf cart once, as we are not Atlantic Ocean kind of folks. Lovely stay.

    The Caribbean shore is not the beach! The Caribbean shore is indeed rocky and across the road, but that is not the beach. We have a 3-mile-long, pristine, pink-sand beach at the back of the property that is connected to the condos by a private, golf-carts-only driveway. Every rental comes with a golf cart. That is the beautiful beach shone in the photos, and it's not rocky, nor do you have to cross a road to get to it. The Caribbean shore is very handy for kayaking, paddle-boarding, snorkeling, and fishing, but it's not the beach.

Janet D. from Saint Paul, MN US recommends this vacation rental.

Our family of 15 had Building 1 to ourselves. It was perfect as we had evening meals together but also had some private time with their own family. We thank all the Buttonwood staff for making our stay so enjoyable. We absolutely loved both the oceans. They offered a different experience. The experience of having an entire beach to ourselves was amazing. Even the beaches we visited outside of Buttonwood we had to ourselves. We scheduled a tour of our making and the grandchildren were thrilled with the wild pigs, feeding the turtles and seeing starfish up close. We feel very lucky to have such wonderful family memories.

Amber M. from Atlanta, GA US recommends this vacation rental.

This was our first time in Eleuthera. Well the island was a little different than we expected it would be, the rental was as pictured. Use of the golf cart with the property was a great bonus amenity. Day trips to Spanish Wells, Harbor Island, Eco tours, snorkeling, and re-fishing charters, made our stay exciting and time flew by. Make sure to rent a car at the airport it’s almost an hour away from the rental. Your best bet is requesting four-wheel-drive jeep. We were able to contact the property rental company who helped us connect with a car rental agency.

A guest from United States recommends this vacation rental.

My group rented the entire complex and everyone absolutely loved it. All of the units are virtually the same and the pictures are very accurate. Some units are better decorated than others. I probably would choose 1B next time as the view was similar but it was decorated better.

We enjoyed our stay at Buttonwood Reserve during Christmas. The cottage was lovely with great amenities from the outdoor deck overlooking the ocean, to the pool, landscaped grounds, and private beach with its own shipwreck.

We stayed as part of a large group occupying all 8 condos at Buttonwood. Great access to both oceans and everything we needed was provided. Beautiful views.
