Really a great location, just off Queen's Highway, 5 minutes from the Harbor. The owner John (a native of Eleuthera, an architect educated in DC) was really nice and friendly (we found that par for the course here). The room we had was small but fine, very clean with a big bathroom. You can see both the Atlantic and Carribean (sp) from the third floor.

My only issue is the winds on the top floor can be strong, and it's pretty loud in the room when trying to sleep. If your a light sleeper, that could be an problem. (It wasn't a problem for my wife at all.)

We would definitely stay there again on our next visit.

We are a family of four and a family of three visiting Eleuthera for one day. We selected this hotel based on tripadvisor reviews. As locals, we were able to negotiate a local rate which was very kind of the owner.

Keep in mind that many properties have a minimum of two or three night stay but Villa Allamanda does not.

Upon pulling up to the property, we were very impressed with the building and design. The owner met us and after some misunderstandings with regards to the number of people in a room and cots, we sorted everything out. The property has 10 units and the night we stayed, we had the property all to ourselves.

One area that could be improved is the comfort of the bed as ours was quite hard. Also, I wasn't sure if the water heater was solar but it might explain why the water was not very hot. Other than those issues, we had a great stay. We only wish we could have stayed longer to enjoy the beaches that are close by. The amount of attention the owner puts into the property is just amazing.

With most hotels costing much much more, Villa Allamanda is a solid choice. Stay here if you want a decent value, great views of both the Atlantic & Caribbean ocean, and modern & clean facilities.

Me and my wife were newly weds our first time staying at villa allamanda. We stayed in the king suite! Which was an excellent choice by the way, beautiful 360 view out on the deck with full privacy options. Inside has everything you could ask for. tv with cable, free wifi, all kitchen appliances & so on. The whole look & feel of the place is different from any other experience you'll find anywer else on the island. Also the owner is super nice and shows concern for his guest. Must try!!

The Island of Eleuthera is known for its amazing beauty and unique natural wonders. Perfectly perched on one of spectacular hills just outside of the island's capital, Governor's Harbour, Villa Allamanda is positioned to showcase some of the best views the island has to offer. It is obvious that the owner, who is an architect, paid special attention to littlest details. Even though the property is relatively small, the facility is designed to make it feel much more expansive. The rooms are very well appointed, with all the conveniences, including complimentary wifi. The lush tropical gardens add to the appeal and force you to stop and appreciate the beauty of the surroundings. There are also hammocks strategically placed for privacy, perfect for couples. Each room has a view of the breathtaking, turquoise ocean, a short distance away . The deck, on the top floor, offers even more unbelievable views of what this island possesses. From the early morning sunrise to the romantic sunsets, this property takes advantage of the unique gifts that only Eleuthera can give. Perfect for a romantic getaway or a relaxing escape from the regular routine... A MUST!!!

My girlfriend and I spent the first half of our vacation to the Bahamas on Eleuthera and decided to stay at villa Allamanda which was an amazing decision. John was extremely hospitable from the get go, we arrived a little early and had spent the better part of the last 14 hours traveling he let us check in early the rooms were nice and quaint with incredible views of both the Atlantic and the Caribbean from the top deck. The island has such an incredible feel to it, I actually slightly preferred it over Nassau. I intend on staying here again next time we visit.
