Week at Senza Nome
2 adults and 3 teenage girls for 7 days. The location makes this a great stay. The beach is incredible and peaceful. The view from the house, especially from the bedroom patios in the mornings is fantastic. The deck overlooking the beach is great. If you are planning on doing things in North and South Eleuthera this is a good location. It’s close enough to GH to spend time there as well. There is a grocery store 10 minutes south and island farm 10 minutes north, so everything you need. The house itself Is fine. A great view from each room, comfortable beds and fully stocked kitchen. There were people staying in the beach cottage and we never saw them, was not an issue at all.
There were enough houses on Double Bay that you never felt isolated but never really saw more than 4 people near us. Zero problems with Noseeums ( guessing due to the Breeze). We would certainly stay here again.
Wonderful House on Double Bay
Most reviews are spot on and of course reflect everyone's expectations going in. We loved Senza Nome. The house is huge and had every possible thing you could want in a house. The kitchen is so well stocked its amazing. If you can't find it, then you are not looking hard enough. The bedrooms were all great and the A/C in all rooms worked well when needed. We did have loss of power one night for 12 hours which made sleeping in the humidity quite tough but we survived. We lost power 2 other times in a 9 day trip but for only an hour or so. The houses next to us had generators. I was hoping Senza Nome had one, but not at this time. Part of the experience.
We were concerned about the seaweed and trash mentioned on the beach and yes it is there. We cleared off our area of the beach for the week and never had any issues with it really. It would be nice if a steel rake came with the house as I would have raked the beach myself.
There was a beach umbrella for the main house which was so great to have available. The sun was hot! The water and bay is fantastic. There were mildly wavy days and calmer days. Never ever too rough. It was perfect really.
It was a bummer the kayak was not available. I guess they have issues with it. I hope they replace it soon.
- The house is about a 1 1/2 hour drive from ELH airport.
- The people of Eleuthera were as friendly as they could be. Really really friendly. We appreciated that.
- Groceries are expensive but we knew that. We learned which grocery stores to stop at for certain items.
- Tippy's is a great beach bar but quite expensive. They take credit cards. Fun time.
- Clarice the caretaker was very nice. We missed her at the start of our trip cause we were out and about, but finally met her. She brought us a delicious pumpkin roll and fritters that were very good. Nice treats. She was attentive to any issues we had. We lost wifi for 2 days but she called and got it fixed.
Not a big deal for us but just that issues can happen on an island and she did her best to resolve them quickly for us.
- The house is stocked with games and books. We played more games as a family on this trip and it was great. Didn't miss TV at all. They do have netflix for guests which my son appreciated, and it worked well when the internet was up.
I could go on and on, but overall a wonderful home and vacation! We would come back in a second! Five stars!
We (4 adults and 2 kids) spent a week at Senza Nome and loved it. The home was perfect for what we needed, the ocean views are absolutely breathtaking. Clarice was such a gracious host, she was so responsive and such an amazing person. If we go back to Eleuthera, we would absolutely stay stay here again. The beach was beautiful and we basically had it all to ourselves, the home was so comfortable and exactly like the pictures, you can tell it has been maintained well. The only minor thing, and this is by no means a complaint, is that it was a little hard to get used to the tap water smell and the low pressure of the water. I would also recommend trimming some of the palm trees that are obstructing the amazing views of the ocean from the house. All this said I would still go back to this same house in a heartbeat, thank you Senza Nome owners and Clarice.
Senza Nome at Double Bay is amazing, the home may be older but it is still very nice and well maintained. The grounds are so well kept it is truly beautiful and then there is the the view of the crashing waves and Double Bay Beach which is awesome. The water is a bit rough as it is on the Atlantic side, but we still enjoyed it every day. A special thanks to Clarice for her yummy conch fritters and always available for any need or question we had, thanks so much Clarice! We had an amazing anniversary week at Senza Nome and highly recommend this home for couples or families who want a beautiful, peaceful, fun vacation.
Thanks so much,
Vic & Deb
Sprawling beautiful home with big views
House was amazing, and beautiful. Beach views were outstanding and the grounds around the home were expansive and it was especially nice to have a private garden full of flowers and a pond and so many areas to relax and escape to. The view from the home especially the master bedroom is fantastic and the sand was wonderful down at the beach however there was a lot of trash all along the beach. I was disappointed to see that the island in general did not have a lot of avenues to dispose of trash. The home also had some electrical issues and that caused water limitations as well. Kitchen was somewhat outdated and the dryer did not work well. We could not find the kayak that was promised, but the house did come with every amenity that you could think of and even spices, teas, coffee and extras that you might need when cooking. Senza Nome is definitely a home away from home despite the little quirks.
We did enjoy our stay at "Senza Nome". House fully match with the description given. All went well. The "Gazeebo" (wooden construction) in the garden, infront of the beach is a gem to spend some time to relax! Thank you
Come spend a relaxing week or two barefoot on Double Bay, one of the most beautiful beaches in the Bahamas. Right in the middle of a spectacular two mile pink sand beach with great snorkelling. Double Bay House offers privacy and tranquility yet is just 20 minutes from historic Governor's Harbour.
