We just returned from a week at beautiful Winding Bay. This was our second visit to POV and it didnโ€™t disappoint. The home suits our family perfectly, with lots of sunny and shady lounging areas to read and relax, whether at the beach or up at the house. Cola and Columbus were very responsive to our needs. Cola happily beaded our girlsโ€™ hair, and Columbus responded quickly to any technical questions we had about the home. Because of POVโ€™s central location, we did a number of day-trips to other beaches in the area. Lighthouse Beach is our favorite, however we discovered a great stretch of beach at Jackโ€™s Bay with some great snorkelling (several sea turtles and lobster around the coral heads). On the recommendation of Marty and Lynn in the POV write-up, we visited Rosie at Nort-side restaurant, only 15 minutes from the house near Rock Sound. Very rustic, but the cracked conch was great and we had the beautiful view all to ourselves. The northside beach is gorgeous and with few other visitors. We also travelled to Tippyโ€™s, outside of Governorโ€™s Harbor. Great food and atmosphere. Weโ€™ll be booking again for next year, and plan on renting a small boat from Columbus to explore the reefs within Winding Bay. Great trip, again. Thanks Marty and Lynn.

Thank you for an enjoyable vacation, Marty and Lynnie. This house was perfect for our family โ€“ the boys had so much fun making friends with native children. Columbus was excellent and extremely helpful. Our most enjoyable days were spend lounging around the property and visiting Harbour Island โ€“ what a spectacular beach with the clearest waters ever! We hope to return again one day.

Wow! What a paradise. We enjoy all the adventures of the island. We saw it all, our favorite was Ten bay beach and Tippyโ€™s has amazing food and the views were breathtaking. We saw a turtle this morning, a sting ray and a shark! The kayaks are a bonus. Love Columbus, Tessa and the young man who cleaned the beach and yard. Your home is lovely! The weather was terrific! May our travels bring us back to the Bahamas!

Itโ€™s always a sad day when one has to leave Eleuthera and head back to the daily grind of work, school, etc. This was our second trip to POV and we enjoyed it just as much as the first one. We canโ€™t wait for our next trip back here as itโ€™s so nice to spend time as a family. Things of interest this time around: 1) Lighthouse Beach โ€“ worth the drive โ€“ amazing water and great place for a picnic 2) โ€“ Club Med Beach โ€“ our favorite place to swim and chill out 3) Nortside Restaurant โ€“ Great food and even better scenery, kids loved Teddy the dog 4) Tarpum Bay at sunset โ€“ jumping off the pier 5) Conch salad from the โ€œsalad masterโ€ in Tarpm bay โ€“ best Iโ€™ve ever had!

Thank you Marty and Lynnie โ€“ your house is wonderful and gives a chance to recharge and get off the grid!

Thank you once again for sharing POV with us! This was our 4th time here and we had a wonderful stay as usual. We snorkeled and spear fished everyday with fish, lobster and conch for our dinners! This time we found no rock lobster, but did find 2 spanish lobster Ugly beasts, but they tasted good! We snorkeled in the inlet to Half Sound for the first time; itโ€™s a wonderful spot in the incoming tide โ€“ as long as everyone is a good swimmer, as the current is strong. โ€ฆ.We saw lots of different fish and Jeff saw squid and turtles. We also enjoyed the beach and reading and certainly appreciate the DSL (looking up fish, conch salad recipes, etc!). and the kids enjoyed the new TV.

Our 2nd year at your beautiful home. Absolutely fantastic! Full moon over the bay, sunny warm days, and many trips to Lighthouse Beach! We thank you for the opportunity to share this special paradise with us!

We came, we saw and we were conquered! We stayed in the house and witnessed my daughterโ€™s marriage on the beach. It was a perfect setting. We shall spread the word!

Your house and spot on Eleuthera is the most lovely we have stayed. Immediately upon arriving I had the sensation that you welcomed us and truly were committed to bringing visitors the best experience possible. Thereโ€™s just something about Point Oโ€™ Vue that brings on a sensation of ease, tranquility and inner calm.

We did our usual exploring and day trips including Harbour Island but were always happiest at Point Oโ€™ Vue. We refueled and re-centered and return to the States a bonded and joyful family, as it should be.

Bless you and your family!

We had THE BEST time at Point Oโ€™ Vue!!! The house and beach are more than we could have dreamed! The pictures donโ€™t do it justice. We definitely plan to put your proporty and the island of Eleuthera on our โ€œplaces we MUST returnโ€ list. Thank you so much for allowing us the opportunity to have the most relaxing vacation of both of our lives. Mary went above and beyond to make us feel comfortable and to be sure we knew where the best spots on the island were. โ€ฆ..We canโ€™t thank you enough. Everything you provided us was completely perfect. Thank you for showing us paradise.

Marty and Lynnie, After 30 years of traveling to beaches in the Caribbean, Atlantic, Pacific and South Pacific, we came to the conclusion that there is no better island than Eleuthera. โ€ฆ.It is always such a joy to be on this island, and after 20 something visits here we really should buy ourselves a house. If we could do half the job [you]l have done at Point Oโ€™ Vue weโ€™d be happy. [You] have done a wonderful job and Mary is a joy to be around. See you again soon!

**Our daughter got engaged on your beach!

Thank you for a wonderful, relaxing introduction to Eleuthera โ€“ the house is beautifully designed to the advantage of the cross breezes. The sunrises were spectacular. we enjoyed snorkeling, kayaking and just a week of down time. This was a perfect place for our family to recharge. We enjoyed Lighthouse Beach โ€“ it was a bit of an adventure getting there but it was well worth it. Absolutely pristine and beautifulโ€ฆ. Thank you for creating such a wonderful experience. We would love to return.

Thank you so much for allowing us to share your paradise. It was one of the most memorable vacations weโ€™ve enjoyed throughout our 30 years together. We shared family time and my husband was able to relax and truly disconnect. We will be back!

Ten days calling Point Oโ€™ Vue home and weโ€™re just nicely feeling the rhythm of island life โ€“ and tomorrow we head back to our realities โ€“ but with a touch of island still in our souls, I hope. What a beautiful place to relax. Our young girls (4 and 5 years) love playing in the surf and sand and we all enjoyed walking on what turned out to be the best beach on the island.

Weโ€™ve found paradise! This is such a great house. The longer we stayed, the more we enjoyed. The 3 porches, especially the covered [porch] facing the ocean (smartest plan on the beach). Mary is a treasure, great food each day. Fresh flowers everydayโ€ฆ.beautiful! Your beach and walkway are great. We shelled, and found a big shell and more netting for you and placed them along the way on the side by the garage. The thing we liked the best is our fellas couldnโ€™t figure out what day it was โ€” not senile yet, just totally relaxed!

What a fabulous vacation! My dream came true. I wanted to bring my daughters to Eleuthera to experience the raw beauty of the island. We have spent many fond vacations with my parents and brothers over 25 years agoโ€ฆ itโ€™s surprising, very little has changed. Thank goodness, I say. Your home is gorgeous, I loved the beach theme. Winding Bay is breathtaking, as is your landscaping! โ€ฆ We had the time of our lives. My daughters, husband and parents now have new memories. Thank you so much for sharing your paradise with us. We plan to be back.

Thank you so much for sharing fabulous Point Oโ€™ Vue with us! The house and the beach are just beautiful. Everything we might have needed was right here. The house and boardwalk are tastefully decorated and very comfortable. Mary is just wonderful! With her help we traveled all over the island and visited many breathtaking beaches. She is the best cook I know! Thanks again!

Dear Erbaughs,

Thank you for creating Point Oโ€™ Vue. It is truly heaven on earth. We had an amazing time here. Ventured to Lighthouse Beach (Godsโ€™ home), Club Med Beach, Harbour Island, and Glass Window Bridge (amazing!) Mary is a sweetheart and makes Point oโ€™ Vue the place to be. We made some great memories here and we hope to be back soon. I will remember this vacation for the rest of my life. This truly is paradise; there is no other place on earth like it. I canโ€™t wait to bring my family here.

-Stacie C.

This was the most relaxing vacation weโ€™ve ever had. Your home is simply spectacular and felt like a โ€œhomeโ€ to us. The porches, view, birds, stars and moon were our favorite parts. Lighthouse beach was a view from a vacation brochure. We snorkeled and saw birds weโ€™ve never seen before. The guys caught 16 mackerels, 3 barracuda, and 4 dolphin on a trip with Oswald. Caught 40 conch in your bay, 1 barracuda, and 1 shark (put him back in the bay tho!) Loved the snorkeling in your bay, and saw a turtle!

Simply spectacular! We have found our paradise, and it breaks our hearts to leave. Point oโ€™ Vue is by far the most graceful, picturesque home on the island. You thought of everything! Mary and Columbus could not have been more helpful. Maryโ€™s conch was a wonderful initiation to Carribbean food. We traveled north and south, enjoying every minute of it but definitely found our peace and joy right here. Thank you for restoring our sense of joy and youth!
