My wife and I just returned from 5 nights at the Sky Beach and it was fantastic! Beautiful, clean, and a quiet getaway. Thanks to CiCi for regular updates on restaurants and other helpful information...she went above and beyond. Pasco and Sammy were also just wonderful. Highly recommended!

We just returned from an amazing vacation at one of the spacious and sunny villas in Sky Beach Club. The four bedroom villa was perfect with a bathroom in each bedroom and a gorgeous view of the Atlantic from the sunken living room. (I even got to enjoy beautiful sunrises from the private pool or on my morning beach walks) Our dinner at Pascal’s the third night was sensational. The staff was fabulous and friendly and my meal was delicious. We highly recommend a scrumptious tropical drink made special by Sammy at the swim-up poolside bar! The pina colada, Mai tai and margarita were top notch. It was truly a memorable, relaxing and incredible vacation and location.
We will be back! Love Sky Beach!

This is our second visit to Sky Beach! This is a great property. Fantastic location 10 min to town. Gorgeous beach! Love having the restaurant on-site too! The staff is wonderful and very accommodating. We rented a four bedroom house. It was the perfect getaway for our family. We will be back!
Small resort with a big heart

We stayed at Sky Beach Club in bungalow #1 from July 28-August 1, 2021. It was a perfect home for us as we explored Eleuthera for the first time.
I'll start by saying that if you're looking for a central location on the island, away from crowds of tourists, with a beach that defies description, this is the place. Add in the warm and helpful staff, the amenities like the pool bar, restaurant and more and you really have a package that can't be beaten.
One thing to think about is what kind of vacation you want. Sky Beach might appeal more to folks like me who are ready for things to slow down around 10PM. We never had any trouble going to sleep, because the pool bar and restaurant were always closed down by then. Even at the height of the crowds, we never felt there wasn't plenty of room to stretch out.
Locals and tourists may use the pool during the day and that was a lot of fun. Staying in the Governor's Harbor area provides plenty of opportunity to visit locations and establishments you'll share with locals. Those were my favorite times. I felt like less of an outsider and more of a guest. Everyone, whether we were in town or exploring further down the road, was helpful and kind. Random passersby would routinely pause just to say "good morning" to us and that's not something I'm used to in the states or in some other islands I've visited.
If there was a tough part of our stay, it was our mattress. It's a very subjective topic, but for us it was far too unforgiving. For others, it's probably fine, but we started the mornings taking Advil. Also, be prepared for a short drive from the main road to the guest areas on a road that looks like it's been carpet bombed. I wouldn't drive a sedan on this road. A 4X4 is a must.
To wrap up, we were very happy with our choice. The food we got on property ranged from good to truly exceptional. Sammy the bartender was always welcoming and ready with a delicious cold drink. The property manager, CC, gave us lots of great advice and was just two doors down if we needed anything.
I would definitely stay at Sky Beach Club again!
Great location and property!

We just spent a fabulous week on Eleuthera at the Sky Beach Club. It's a small resort with only 3-4 large villas, and a couple of smaller ones. We stayed in one of the larger 4 bedroom/ 4 bath ones. The house was gorgeous! Spacious, beautifully designed with wonderful finishes. We had a small private pool with breathtaking views of the ocean down below. I can't imagine staying in a nicer place. The caretakers couldn't have been better and more friendly. They were a delight, and very responsive. There is also an industrial ice machine at the clubhouse. Bring a cooler, or make one with a trashbag lined box like we did. We filled up once, and it lasted us all week.
Pascal's restaurant and Sammy's pool-side swim up bar are just a very short walk or drive down the hill. Both were well staffed, and great. They sit just a few steps from one of the nicest beaches we found on the island. And there are a LOT of nice beaches on Eleuthera!
The property is older, and shows a bit of wear here and there, like missing tiles around the pool and very minor things, but overall, is very well maintained.... except for the driveway. In places, it's like driving down a dry riverbed. LOL. Drive slowly and pick your rout carefully. But it's worth it!
