@+ bedroom beach house with a pool around governors harbour

Hello all,

We're just back from 2 weeks in Eleuthera, and already planning a return trip next year.

We stayed at Five Palms in Tarpum Bay the past 2 years, and absolutely love it.... but... its getting expensive and its really too big for our family of 4/5.

As much as we love it, we also wouldn't mind seeing more of the North end of the island. We've been all over the south, but haven't ventured past GH going North.

I'm hoping the great bunch here can help with suggestions for a 2 or 3 bedroom home on the ocean with a private pool. We don't care much which beach, but prefer sand. French leave would be perfect if any of the homes have their own pools (lush life seems a bit big for us as well right now....). We'd like to keep in under 3K/week if possible.

Any help would be very much appreciated.

Thanks so much, see you next year!

Check out Blue Palm in North Palmetto Point. I never stayed there but it sounds like it checks all of your boxes.

$3,000 a week on a sandy beach and has 4 bedrooms.

I'll second the motion on Blue Palms, and you should also check out the nearby Heron Hill.

Blue Flamingo is a two bedroom with a pool in Double Bay. Canta Libre is also a two bedroom with a pool although her beachfront is across the Bank's Road. House and pool are on west side of road.

Hi

Thanks for 5 Palms review. We 've touched base regarding 5 Palms as we were considering 5 Palms for next trip.

We've stayed at Blue Palms and it would fit your needs. It is great home w/pool 4 bdrms/2 baths and outdoor shower beachfront on N. Palmetto PT. Owners/caretakers are wonderful. This home is the best deal for all this on Eleuthera.

We also stayed in The Cay House in N. Eleuthera last Feb. ( no pool ) but this is 5 bdrm ( or 4 w/ study w/2 singles beds) and 3 baths is right on the most gorgeous calm beach. Gaulding Cay. We loved it.

THE CAY HOUSE

While both of these homes are wonderful, clean and very comfortable, they do not have all the 'water toys' that 5 Palms have. 2 Kayaks, snorkel equipment and that was it..........that was all we needed. Also I did my homework and noted that 5 Palms offer option of cook and housekeeping. Blues Palms and The Cay House do not have daily housekeeping and no cooks. GUess you can ask owner to refer 1 if needed.

.Not sure if you have young children but these homes are not great for little children. We were all adults so it was fine for us.

P.S. We did not rent Sunset Villa in N. Eleuthera( around the bay bend almost next door around the bend from The Cay House) has TWO pool and huge but more reasonable than 5 Palms. Has TONS of water toys. We did not like the small 'man made beach" ( totally private as this property surround this small man made beach) we kayaked from The Cay House and saw it. So it is TOTALLY PRIVATE beach. We did not rent this home because the layout with 1 master bedroom on 3rd floor and main liv areas on second floor and other 5 bedrrms on ground level did not suit our needs. From their site, it sounds like they offer cook and housekeeping w/the rate

Good luck and let us know what you decide fhe next time.

Matt at Eleuthera Vacation Rentals is pretty good at matching homes and availability with your budget. Hit him up.
