As avid travellers my husband and I prefer to rent private homes when vacationing. Zion took our breath away from the moment we saw the front door. Strong attention to detail is evident at every turn in this home. Private rooms with ensuite baths make this home ideal for larger groups of family or friends. Larger pool overlooking water and covered sitting areas for enjoying cocktails at night. Kitchen is fully equipped with Sub Zero fridge and large professional range. Everything you need and more is available for cooking. We enjoyed sitting on the lower deck and taking nice walks in the shallow water. Craig was super helpful with all our questions and was a wealth of knowledge about the island. DO NOT HESITATE to book this home you will not be disappointed. We are already planning our return with friends later this year. This is a 5+ star luxury at its finest. Thanks again.

Absolutely the most unique and beautiful property. From the palm trees to the stunning and HUGE poinsettias edging the volleyball court. We had the pleasure of cooking fresh sweet potatoes that were grown right beside the house and they were delicious. Paddle boarding to the near by islands is something I will never forget. Having turtles swimming right beside me was amazing!! As for the rooms they were perfect and super comfortable. All and all this vacation was incredible. Do yourself a favour and book today and experience all this gorgeous spot has to offer.

Just got back from the most phenomenal vacay at this property. The house is paradise on earth, with a view and vibe you just cant get on crowded resort. It was great to live like locals for a week and tour the island top to bottom, visiting amazing little beach side bars and local tourism spots. The whole house is so clean, crisp and modern. The rooms were adorable and the pool and patio to wake up to just steps away from your room with glowing multi colour lights made us feel like rockstars. Car rental is a must to cruise around at your leisure then come home to a gorgeous retreat over looking the ocean with a private beach you can walk out for a mile in! Tons of amenities provided at the house - the list shown on the booking page does not lie. We did tons of home cooking and FRESH slushy rum drinks made with fruits and veg grown right on the property! Craig and Fatima were beyond the title of super hosts - they will help you navigate all you could possibly need to stay here and make the most of their beautiful home on this heavenly island! If I could give 10 stars here I would. BOOK THIS PLACE!!! You will find your personal paradise to zen right out in. We WILL be back.

Zion | Beachfront Paradise | Swimming Pool | Modern Luxury | Central Eleuthera South Palmetto Point Luxury, elegance, beauty, privacy! 646377588 I totally echo the previous reviews. Zion in Central Eleuthera was a spectacular spot for our three generation family of 11 to share a vacation. The house is perfectly designed for a group: plenty of space to be together and many secluded spots for peaceful moments alone. From the beautifully placed entrance to the shallow warm water beach, views are great from every angle. Craig's recommendations for local help were excellent. We loved every meal that Devaughn and family prepared and served and we had our most fun on Captain Julius' boat. Thank you, Craig.

We just had three families, 11 people, stay for a week and it was perfect location. Well set up with bedroom suites and large common areas all centrally located around the pool deck. Amazing sunset views and large kitchen / dining area. Craig and Fatima were fantastic to work with and answered every question. I'd highly recommend not only Eleuthera but a stay at Zion, great trip.

The house and the location are all the things that other reviewers have praised. You might want to read the long review, entitled “Secluded Paradise, before this one because it contains a great amount of accurate and interesting information about the house and where it is. Zion’s website and many reviewers list the house’s amenities and it’s no exaggeration to say that it is magnificently and fully equipped. We were a family group of seven adults and three children (a four-year old and twin babies, three-months old), and we rented the house for two weeks in February. Its layout is simple but most effective. In the shape of an E, without the middle piece, it faces the ocean. The two wings contain the six bedrooms and bathrooms and are anchored by the huge kitchen and living room. In the center of the E is the pool and seating area, thus easily accessible from every room in the house. All the rooms have glass doors and sliding screens. This was particularly good for our family because we could see in an instant where our four-year old was and make sure an adult was with her when she went into the pool. Broad steps lead down from the pool to a charming seating area under a white wooden pergola. From here, there are a few more steps down into the ocean. This is a particularly lovely spot for reading or, caressed by the ocean breezes, simply gazing out over the turquoise and dark blue water. The size of the house and this charmed area give a large party, such as ours, plenty of space to be separate from time to time, which adds to the appeal. The house is at the end of a long road, branching off Queen’s Road—the main highway—on the Atlantic side of Eleuthera at Savannah Sound. The water, sheltered by the long, narrow island of Windermere, is calm but cooling breezes come in from the opening to the Atlantic Ocean at the southern end of Windermere Island, so there is a constant and refreshing breeze. When you look around you see no one; you have this enchanted spot to yourselves. The shoreline is old, blackened coral but there is sand at the foot of the steps leading down into the water and also at the slipway for the four canoes—two of them with glass-bottoms—that come with the house. (Fins, snorkels, and masks are also provided.) Once in the water, there is sand underfoot and when the tide is low you can walk along the shore and even to a small mangrove island. A tip for travelers. On Sundays, virtually everything closes—the Bahamians are great church-goers—but there is a Shell gas station in Governor’s Harbour that is open until 2:00 pm and a supermarket, just behind it, which is open until 5:00 pm. Most grocery stores and gas stations only take cash ($1:00 Bahamian equals U.S. $1:00), but there are an adequate number of ATM machines for withdrawals. Craig, the owner, was most gracious and wonderfully helpful in all our dealings with him. He is rightly proud of his property and went out of his way to answer our questions and meet our needs. We have some experience of renting out our own house in Newport, Rhode Island, and, for what it is worth, we think he has the right approach, as well as perfect manners, to attract and please tenants. Sheri, his local assistant, was also a great help. She met us at the Rock Sound airport, the nearest one to the house, and provided a rental van. She also sent her daughter up to Governor’s Harbour, in the center of Eleuthera to pick up our daughter who arrived later on a different flight. What is truly magical about Zion House is its combination of qualities that provide its occupants with an unparalleled blend of comfort, tranquility, and contentment. It is a tropical sanctuary, an island haven of peace.

We gathered our family of 11 at Zion Bahamas to celebrate our 50th wedding anniversary, and it was the perfect spot! The beautifully designed villa and its oceanfront surroundings were breathtaking. We enjoyed the large common spaces all together, appreciated the comfort that each en suite bedroom provided, and relished all of the amenities - having the use of so many kayaks and paddle boards was amazing! The pool was also a huge hit with our youngest grandchildren. Craig and Fatima couldn't have been more helpful answering our many questions as we planned our trip. Once we arrived, Sheri was so welcoming and made us feel right at home. We had Chef Devaughn prepare a meal for us, and it was beyond delicious. We also appreciated the well-stocked cupboards with Keurig cups for coffee, spices for cooking, and even laundry detergent, sunscreen, and insect repellent - all of which came in handy.
