The owner/manager, Mrs. Davis was an extremely friendly host. The Apartment is centrally located in Governor's Harbour with the Friday night fish fry almost at the back door. The property is quiet and serene with comfortable seating for star gazing. The rooms can use some upgrading but they were clean and lots of towels and linen were available.

I went the first time many years ago and have returned many many times. I always stay at the Laughing Bird, it is my place. I... More

When you visit the rustic, elemental paradise that is Eleuthera, the Laughing Bird Apartments allow for all the amenities you might need in such a destination. The apartments are clean and spacious and located on a beautiful, landscaped lot feet from a small beach. Hostess Jean is warm and gracious, and our children (ages five and six) searched her out...

After reading the reviews online, I was skeptical about staying here, however, it was the best thing I could have done. I could have used some additional pillows for the bed, but I made out just fine. I enjoyed the sliding doors (locked from the inside), and the hammock outside. I do wish I had used them more though.

Our stay here began with a non working tv and an old noisy air conditioner. The owner (who is elderly and means well but is in way over her head) then switched us to another cottage with a working tv and a "new" air conditioner. The filter on the so called new air conditioner was so filthy it looked like... More
