Overview & Photos

Gallery

"Kool Jumbey" Vistas (unit 1C at the Buttonwood Reserve Oceanfront Condominium Resort) is a top-floor 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.

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. The condominium comes with a golf cart. 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.

The Caribbean side also features our new 70 foot boat dock, a perfect for platform for jumping/diving, fishing, or of course docking a small boat.

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 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 infrared outdoor grill.

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. Eleuthera has vast caves, cliffs, a bottomless ocean hole, and many unique

Daniel R. from Tampa, FL US recommends this vacation rental.

We were looking for a quiet, peaceful vacation surrounded by nature. We found it! Loved the island and the condo was very pretty and comfortable. The Atlantic side beach is gorgeous but beware of the loose coral rocks when waves are rolling in. They pelt you pretty hard. I was only in the water about 2 minutes and came out with bloody and bruised ankles. Swimming and snorkeling from the dock was great. We saw some cool fish on the random coral beds and a few large snappers and other fish that got my son excited about fishing! We'll definitely be back. Overall, it was a wonderful trip.

We had such a relaxing time at Buttonwood. The unit was exactly like the pictures. We loved the paddle board and kayaks right out side our unit.

Mike C. from Amelia, OH United States recommends this vacation rental.

We (2 couples)enjoyed our visit to Eleuthera very much! The natural beauty of the Island, the clear brilliant HD colors of the ocean/sky is amazing!
The Buttonwood Reserve unit 1C was the right choice for us. The views from the balconies are just breathtaking! We are already talking about going back next summer.
Over all, the condo was clean and very comfortable. We would definitely rent this unit again.
We met James, Patrick and Brenda (w/property caretaking). They were always very friendly and helpful when we had questions.
The condo was very clean, but I do want to give you some honest feedback about a few things we were surprised about in the condo.
The kitchen was lacking a complete set of basic cutlery, utensils and china (a setting of each for 4 would have been nice). Only a random mix of a few serving bowls.
We did use the one & only pan in the kitchen for cooking eggs a few mornings (it’s non-stick surface was long gone!). We contacted our Buttonwood person Sonya for kitchen towels (there were none) and bathroom wash clothes (there were 2 for 4 people). We did get them later the same day.
On our last day we discovered a 2018 Island Guide booklet at a local Restaurant, it was loaded with helpful/useful Island info/maps (I would suggest there always be one in the condo for the guest!).
I hope this is helpful.
Blessings,

  • Manager Responded on 9/3/2018

    Thanks for the heads up! We are taking an inventory of kitchenware and linens in all the condominiums at Buttonwood and will be placing a large order as soon as we complete that. We look forward to having you back next year to a well-stocked condominium.

What a lovely condo with a MAGNIFICENT VIEW of both the Atlantic Ocean and the Caribbean! The condo was just as pictured online: clean, updated, and spacious. The location was good for our needs. No crowds in sight and no one ever at the pool when we were. This property and the staff were all TOP NOTCH!

Ashley M. from United States recommends this vacation rental.

The island of Eleuthera is absolutely beautiful and and very laid back. The condo at Buttonwood Reaerve was decorated beautifully and the views from
Both balconies were amazing. The location of the condo is very convenient to a small grocery and liquor store, which are not always convenient to find on the island. The golf cart was a great amenity to get to the Atlantic side beach. I spent the majority of my time on that beach as it was completely secluded and there was not another footstep to be found on the beach. If you are looking for pure relaxation and natural beauty this is your place. I cannot wait to go back and stay!

Very much enjoyed our stay at Buttonwood. Location is central to activities throughout the island. Management was excellent. The condo is clean, has plenty of space and the views are fantastic. The pool was cleaned daily and the access to both beaches was simple.

Mindie S. from Manvel, TX United States recommends this vacation rental.

We loved our stay at Buttonwood! We chose this unit so we would have views of the Caribbean and the Atlantic and were not disappointed. On nights when the Atlantic was roaring in you could hear it from the balcony, and if the Caribbean gets rough you will have battling ocean sounds to relax to. Sunsets were incredible and we had a full moon during our time there that was amazing! Our unit was clean and well equipped with magnificent views of the Caribbean. The wrap around views to the Atlantic side are beautiful, and the golf cart ride is about 10 mins. We snorkeled some on the Caribbean side and found lots of shells. For first timers to the island, just be patient with issues like electricity outages or low water pressure occasionally.We knew this happens on the island so were not bothered at all. If you wait a bit they both come back pretty quick. We had 5 people in our unit so staggered our showers as much as possible and that worked fine for hurry to go anywhere or do anything anyway! Bring your own bug sprays to keep from getting eaten up by no-seeums and buy some apple cidar vinegar to soak in if you do get bit.I brought citronella candles to burn on the balcony in the evening. Sonya was a tremendous help and took care of a few grocery purchases before our arrival. The East and Final Grocery Store is very close by with a pretty good selection of supplies as well as the Leo Rose beachside restaurant which had a great grouper burger. Not far from Governors Harbour and the Buccaneer restaurant which was very good also.Pam's Island Gifts in Gregory Town has lots of local made souveniers, and The Blue Seahorse in Rock Sound as well.We explored a new beach every day and I even stopped using my windshield wiper as a blinker before we left! I was terrified of having to drive on the left side of the road but it was really no big deal after the first day.Many nice people on the island to meet. My only complaint was having to leave!

Marylynn M. from United States recommends this vacation rental.

We just got home from a weeks stay in Buttonwood. Our condo was perfect, clean, bright, with a beach feeling and the best views.
Our teenage daughters were so happy to have their own room and WIFI...
The location was very central, making it easier for day trips, as there is so much to see on the island. I would definitely come back!
