We had 17 ladies staying on the island for a business school trip and it was fantastic!
Loved - Fresh towels and housekeeping everyday (this was essential for so many girls taking showers, etc.) - Full-time staff that was responsive and super helpful in ensuring a boat would come to pick us up; being on an island, I was a little worried about transportation, but this ended up being fine - Great value given how expensive Harbour Island is and how nice Middle Cay (this private island is) - Plenty of room so we didn't feel like we were on top of each other yet were easily able to come together All in all, highly recommended! The only glitch was when the power went out for a few hours, but staff was responsive and shortly after the utility guy came, it was restored.
Loved our stay on Middle Cay.
It is a private oasis, this was a dream vacation. First time we used airbnb and we are very happy. The private island was very easy to get to, Sonal the hosts sets everything up for you prior to arrival. We flew into ELH(North Eleuthra) from FLL(Ft. Lauderdale). From there took a short taxi ride and then on to the Cay in a matter of a few minutes. We had asked the house to be stocked with groceries prior to arrival and were greeted with ice cold local beer. The place is immaculate, the beds are comfortable, amenities that you would expect in a luxury rental. The outdoor living is the star attraction of this island. The night time swim, being on the cay and having complete peace, yet just a stone throw away to all the joys of an out island. House was stocked with most of the spices we needed, the fridge had many condiments. We caught so many fish and grilled them for dinner most nights. We had daily maid service and we used a local boat captain to ferry us around to Harbour Island and other private islands in the vicinity. There is a boat available for use on the island. The pink sand beach was the most amazing beach we have ever been, the sand is not a bright pink, but hues of pink are evident in certain lights. Lot of restaurants on Harbour Island that we loved, Arthur's bakery is not to be missed. We hope to come back soon.
We had an unbelievable time on this private island!
It was truly a trip of a lifetime. We were lucky to have our house manager to give us plenty of local insight so that we could have such an amazing trip. We will be back!
Took three generations for a holiday and had a blast.
We were worried about the kids complaining but all of them had a great time. Amazing place with attention by owner to all minute details. Our children did not want to leave Middle Cay. Lots of water activities to do. It was a treat to enjoy the underwater scooters they have on the cay. Went fishing and thoroughly enjoyed our stay.
Amazing stay! Dream vaccation.

Just freaking amazing!!!
We were blown away at the service, the level of luxury, the amenities available.
We were a large group, there was plenty to do. Every day we relaxed in the massive outdoor living area on the private island.
The beds were comfortable, the bed sheets were high end, there were enough towels provided for all of us. The housekeeper came by every day and this was so helpful. The boat captain took us to places where we got fresh conch from the sea bed. Kids picked up a lot of tidbits about the local sea life. Saw many varieties of fish, even saw dolphins, the locals called it flipper. We are grateful for the staff and Sonal making this a memorable vacation, we have 3 generations in our group and everyone did not want to leave middle cay.
We hope to be back soon!
Vacation of a lifetime!
Just came back from Middle Cay, no one in our group wanted to leave.
All the amenities you can think of. We loved going around in the boat, Andrew was very knowledgeable, and the kids had a blast with him.
The restaurants on Harbour Island were amazing.
The pool, the hammock, the landscaping. We had three generations come with us and there was something to do for everyone.
Love, love, loved it
Did I mention we loved it. Everything was top notch, we were taken care of at all times. From before we booked to after we checked out we were treated like royalty. The island is a gem, the caretakers are so friendly. Plenty of room for our large group. Going to Harbour Island for meals was so easy. We will be back.
We loved our stay on Middle Cay. It was truly our best vacation ever. We normally stay at the hotels on Harbour Island. This was so different. So serene.
We had plenty to do and we look forward to coming back
A true 5 star resort
Highly reccomended. What an amazing trip. I can't say enough good things about Middle Cay. It all started with Sonal the owner who did an amazing job preparing us for the trip and arranging all the transportation from the airport. She was very accessible via whatsapp and always willing to give us recommendations and help answer all of our questions. Also note we are planning to go back again in the spring as we all had such a great time.
We traveled with a group of 8 of us. 4 adults and 4 kids ages 10-12
This was one of our first VRBOs so we weren’t sure what to expect. We are SPG platinum and big fans of the Four Seasons hotel chain—I tell you this because we are very picky about where we stay especially on family vacations.
About Middle Cay
Located a short boat ride from ELH airport—literally 3 mins (Sonal arranged it). From the moment we stepped on the boat all we could say was WOW. We have traveled to most of the major islands in the Caribbean and enjoy staying at 5 star resorts. The house and furnishings are up to the standards of a 5 star hotel. The house is very spacious and offers plenty of room for kids and adults to either share together time or have their own space if needed. The kitchen is great and is fully stocked with all the necessary appliances and cooking utensils. Beds and linens are top notch and water pressure in showers is great. Internet and WIFI are great and kids streamed videos.
The grounds and views from the island are truly breathtaking. An infinity pool overlooks the ocean with high end lounge chairs and cushions. I spent most of my mornings here drinking coffee and watching the sea turtles hunt for food. There is a large hammock next to the ocean which allows you to kick back and get lost in time. My biggest decision in the morning was whether to sit poolside or on the hammock . I have stayed at many of the nicer resorts in the Carribean and the view from the Cay rivals any of them.
House is staffed with a groundskeeper (Henry). He is great and will help you drink fresh coconuts and even helped the kids get live bait for fishing. We also had a house manager and boat captain ( father and son team) that acted as our personal tour guides. They were amazing and really made the trip. We also had a housekeeper who was there to make sure the place was clean. This was one of my bigger fears since I have not used VRBO before but was pleasantly surprised at how great it was
We are planning our second trip already!
The island is such a treat, three generations loved it. Peace and great service are the two main things we enjoyed on the island. There was so much to do, many board games and outdoor activities to do. Harbour Island was so close that we were never far from civilization. Our group all agreed that the restaurants on Harbour Island were better than the one's in Nassau.
We did the swimming pigs excursion that the kids loved,. The fishing was amazing, Island had fishing rods and tackle.
Snorkeling was amazing, again we got the snorkelling gear from the stash on the island.
Nicholas the prpperty manager was prompt and went out of his way to make our trip memorable!
We are already planning our trip back to Middle Cay!
Our first private island stay and it was fab!
We were a group of 16, loved every minute of it. So many activities to do, between the pig excursion, the lobster diving, the water tubing, outdoor bowling, beach volleyball and many more.
The island looks like a resort. We did have to deal with the challenges of being on an island, so that was a great learning experience and made us appreciate many things we take for granted in the U.S.
The staff is absolutely a delight to work with, the place was super clean. Nicholas came lightening quick when ever we needed something.
They provide a boat twice a day to go to Eleuthera or Harbour Island. Everyone loved it.
Trip of a lifetime!
4 generations together, we all had a great time. So many memories made. It was the coolest thing to wake up to no noises in a city! We enjoyed the games in the beach area! We will come back for sure

We had a wonderful time at this private island, the staffs are very friendly and helpful.
Amazing and beautiful escape!
This private island and the homes are spectacular! We didn’t want to leave and had the best vacation ever!
Beyond words, cannot wait to come back
Loved the property, the serenity, the walkway around the island. So much sea life to enjoy! Middle Cay was so close to Harbour Island, we went there for dinner and sometimes for lunch. We have stayed on Harbour Island, but we loved the privacy that the island provided. Not being woken up by the roosters on Harbour was a plus.
We did leave our golf cart at the dock on HI. The water on the island is brackish, I was told less than Harbour, we just used the spring water provided. We rented both homes and had an amazing time!
Amazing experience with great privacy!
