Overview & Photos
Building Two (comprised of 4 condominiums and 8 bedrooms) at Buttonwood Reserve Condo Resort offers families, friends or a wedding party the luxury, privacy and amenities for a perfect vacation.
This extraordinary property is located on a ridge 45 feet above the Caribbean. The views of both oceans are truly breathtaking. From your large windows and extensive decks, you can watch the sun rise over the Atlantic and set over the Caribbean.
Buttonwood Reserve is situated on 50 acres, with beaches on both sides of the property. On the Atlantic side, Buttonwood has a world-class, 3-mile-long pink-sand beach, pristine, without a single house on it. This Atlantic side beach is accessed via our private, golf-carts only driveway. The property comes with a fleet of golf carts. This miles-long beach is virtually private for us, because the only other access is a rough and little used jeep track half a mile to the south. On the Caribbean side of our property, almost in your front yard, is a second beach, which has excellent snorkeling, kayaking, paddle boarding, fishing, and jumping on our new water trampoline! This beach is small and rather rocky, so not so aesthetic, but it’s as calm as a lake most of the time and perfect for the above activities.
If you’re not in the mood for a swim in the ocean, slip into our resort-style pool. This beautiful landscaped pool is heated for comfortable swimming year-round.
Buttonwood Reserve comes with golf carts, kayaks, paddle board, bikes, and a water tramp.
We have just installed a mini-gym equipped with a multifunction Smith machine cage, an Olympic weight rack, dip station, and a cable routed pulley system. Guests also have access to dumbbells and a fitness/yoga mat. This is an open-air gym, fully roofed with 3 walls.
The optional Main Lodge is a central gathering place for large groups. It includes a large ocean-view living area, dining area, and kitchen, where large groups can gather for dining and leisure time. It has a big deck overlooking the Caribbean with a sunset view, a bedroom with a king bed and an ocean view, one full bath, and a couple of sleeping lofts suitable for teenagers. It can be added to your reservation if desired.
Buttonwood Building Two consists of four 2-bedroom, 2-bath condos, each with a full kitchen. Each condo features a large great room with an 8-foot sliding glass door with spectacular Caribbean views. The slider opens onto a large deck furnished for lounging or dining while watching the sun set over the sea. Enjoy a meal or a beverage, or watch the dolphins frolic in the Caribbean. The great room includes a living area with flat-screen satellite TV, a dining area with dining room seating for six, and a modern, open-plan, luxurious kitchen finished in stainless steel and black granite. All areas have magnificent ocean views in every direction, with water sparkling as far as the eye can see.
The master bedroom of each condo features a large upholstered window seat with panoramic views of the Caribbean, a perfect spot to relax with a book or a morning coffee. The master is furnished with a king bed and equipped with an en-suite full bath, and has a private door leading to the deck.
The guest bedroom of each condo also features a large window seat. The guest bedrooms of the upper two condos enjoy spectacular Atlantic Ocean views. Each guest bedroom has a full en-suite bath (which can be accessed from the hall as well). The guest bedrooms are furnished with twin beds that can be converted into a king.
Buttonwood is located just one mile from the village of James Cistern, which has grocery stores, restaurants, a liquor store, and town dock where you can at times purchase fresh fish. Three excellent restaurants are within walking distance of Buttonwood, including LeoRose, Delish, and Mels’ Snack Shack. Famous Stubbs Barbecue is two miles up the road.
The island’s main town, Governors Harbour, is a 15 minute drive. The main airport is a 45 minute drive from the property. A small airport is just 5 minutes away.

Stephanie G. from United States recommends this vacation rental.
WOW!! What a fantastic property! We were visiting the island for the first time and had a party of 40. We rented all 8 units so we had the whole property to ourselves. Our group had 15 kids and the ages of our guests ranged from 3-80 and everyone had a fabulous time!!
From the very start, Matt was incredibly responsive and helpful. He provided tons of great recommendations and did not disappoint. Our chef Kaynell prepared all of our breakfasts and select dinners. I'd recommend her for sure! We connected with Menishca of Per Your Request as our island expert and concierge for the week. She arranged a great party for us and helped us with several excursions and details. You should consider using her services if you have a large group!! The best excursion was a day on the water with Exotic Excursions and Captain Sheldon.
The property was well managed and maintained. We had a few very minor issues and the team was there quickly to assist. The golf carts are a life saver to get to/from the private beach.
I can't wait to go back!!! Thank you, Buttonwood!
All of the condos were spacious, clean and nicely appointed. The beach at the Atlantic and shore on the Caribbean were both incredible - something for everyone! The views were stunning from every balcony with gorgeous sunsets every night viewed from the main lodge deck. I wouldn't change a thing about our vacation and highly recommend the property when you want a quiet getaway in paradise!!
