Finally we made it back to Caribbean Blue, grateful that all the responsibilities were over will and we could chill for a while. Caribbean Blue is in a fantastic location, you have a great view of Levi Island and you can see Cupids Cay in the distance off to the right. The closest houses are a couple hundred yards away so you feel pretty isolated, plus it is just a quick jaunt to Governors Harbour when you need supplies. Honestly of all the places we have stayed Caribbean Blue is definitely one of our top 3, it's position in the top 3 depends on which one of the four of us you ask. It is hands down the most well equipped house we have stayed in, they have everything you could need. Honestly when we moved to DaVilla we were almost a little disappointed in the lack of extra amenities compared to Caribbean Blue. It was the little things, extra sunblock and bug spray left by other renters, citronella candles and mosquito coils, lots of dishes and kitchen supplies, wine glasses, water bottles, a water filter, soap and sponges, good cookbooks, island maps, etc. They seemed to think of all the little things that make your stay much more pleasant. Everything was really clean and comfortable and it was a great layout for two
couples. Plus you had an amazing view from the front deck. The only downfall was there was really not much of a lounging area by the water. It looks like they had sand there at one point, but it must have blown away. We saw some outlines in the rock so maybe they are building a larger area or putting a little cabana by the water. That would be fabulous!!
After watching them for a little while we put away the groceries and headed out toward the water with our books and lawn chairs. Eventually the boys came back a little after lunch time after a very successful 4 hour excursion. They bagged themselves 4 lobsters, 1 grouper and 3 lionfish. We love lionfish and since they are an invasive species we would ideally love to predominantly eat lionfish while we are on Eleuthera. We mostly find them on the Caribbean side so since wind had been blowing on that side so frequently they had not had an opportunity to get into them.
The boys soon returned and we settled in for cocktail hour with a grouper and lionfish ceviche appetizer. For dinner we grilled up the lobsters on the BBQ with some magic seasonings that D doctored up then served them over fresh green salad from our visit to Island Farms and topped with fresh croutons made from the old bread heels. It was a heavenly meal and a great relaxing day at our home away from home.
