“Beach house on a beautiful beach”
Reviewed 20 October 2015 for a stay in September 2015

We wanted a secluded island to enjoy the beaches and relax without the tourist crowds - definitely chose the right island when we chose Eleuthera!

The place was great, it was quite roomy. The kitchen had plenty of saucepans, plates, glasses etc, and there were plenty of towels. The information provided by Craig before we travelled was really helpful.

The house was on a lovely beach, the water was so warm and clear. In some places off the beach there were a few grassy reefs where we saw some fish when we went snorkeling, and also other places where it was just a regular sandy beach. The water was calm most of the time, sometimes got a little choppy when the wind picked up in the afternoons. We only saw one other person on the beach the week we were there, so we pretty much had the beach to ourselves the whole time.

We had hired a car which was quite convenient - there isn't anything but the beach within walking distance. Make sure you have food in the house for those times when it's hard to find anything open.

We'd love to stay again!

“Great location on quiet island”
Reviewed 5 April 2015 for a stay in March 2015
1
person found this review helpful

My family of four, including a 6 and 3 year old, recently stayed at Parlay for a week. Great location directly on a Caribbean beach. All amenities you could ask for are provided inside and out. Plenty of outdoor seating, kayaks for fishing, some beach toys, a shower and anything else you could ask for. Water is calm and blue, although we did have a thunderstorm one evening which made the water choppy for a couple of days, but we were able to find other beaches quite easily. Inside, the house is modern, clean and well thought out. Beds were comfortable, sheets were clean and crisp. Kitchen was fully stocked and as nice as anything in the States. Location is quite convenient to Tarpum Bay town as well as venturing out to other points of the island. The property manager checked in on us a few times to make sure everything was ok. Overall, a great vacation home on a quiet island that affords peace, relaxation and a great time to spend with family. Thank you and will be back soon.

We love hearing how much people enjoy our little slice of paradise. We have tried to make the home as comfortable as possible for all our guests and are glad it met your needs. The occasional storm will make the normally crystal clear water a bit choppy at our home, but there are hundreds of other beaches on the island to be explored when that happens. Your family were great guests and we would love to have you visit Parlay At Sunset again on your future travels to Eleuthera!

We're so glad you guys had such a great time. We visit new beaches every time we are on island and still have only been to a fraction of the amazing locations Eleuthera has to offer. We hope the kids had a great time playing in the sand and enjoying the beautiful waters at Parlay At Sunset!

“our dream of paradise realized”
Reviewed 18 February 2015 for a stay in June 2014

if you are looking for all the comforts of home in a wonderful home, but with gorgeous views of the Caribbean and warm weather and water then Parlay is for you. We absolutely loved it here. The beach was wonderful! no one else was seen all week! our trip to lighthouse beach was a standout adventure, and oh so worth it! the homeowners are just wonderful and extremely helpful even when our flight to the Bahamas was cancelled and caused us to arrive a day later! It was a peaceful dream come true with spectacular sunsets every evening! We cant wait to come back to this beautiful home on this beautiful island! The locals are also the nicest people we have ever met on vacation! a must stay!

We're so glad you had such a great vacation! The sunsets at Parlay are new and amazing every evening. And you are right about the locals of Eleuthera, and Tarpum Bay in particular. They are amazing people and some of the kindest souls we have ever met. We hope you choose Parlay for your next adventure!

“Absolutely perfect!!”
Reviewed 11 February 2015 for a stay in November 2014

We flew into Rock Sound from Nassau where we were met by Ken who showed us to the vehicle and escorted us to the house. Ken stopped along the way to show us a couple places to eat and get supplies for the week. From there we drove to Parlay at Sunset. I have visited Eleuthera before and found the location of Parlay to be perfect to easily reach any and all attractions from Governor's Harbor on south with an easy drive. The home was in perfect condition and very comfortable. Then there is the beach! Absolutely awesome and COMPLETELY deserted. We spent an entire week and never saw another person. I traveled with three of my kids (4-17) and they all had a wonderful time collecting shells, wading in the water and relaxing in the sand. If you are considering visiting Eleuthera (and who wouldn't?) I would strongly recommend staying at Parlay at Sunset.
