Overview

North Palmetto Point House Rental Photos and Description

1 Bedroom, 1 Bathroom, Sleeps 2

Welcome to Island Breeze- an ideal romantic hideaway for a peaceful island vacation. This two-story Bahamas beach house is located on the Atlantic side of Eleuthera near the quaint settlement of North Palmetto Point. A sandy pathway from the cottage leads to a dune deck overlooking a private white and pink sand beach, making it a delightful spot for your morning coffee. Enjoy snorkeling and swimming in the calm turquoise waters teeming with coral reefs and vibrant tropical fish. Or explore the beach for an assortment of exotic shells, sea glass, and the elusive sea beans that float over from Africa and are rumored to bring good luck to their finder. You can also spend time relaxing on the large rear deck of the house watching the herons, egrets, and osprey frolic in a salt water lake.

A fully equipped kitchen awaits you along with all the comforts you would expect in your own vacation home. The cottage is fully air-conditioned with ceiling fans throughout, comfortable furniture, a full bathroom, and two outside showers. In addition, the loft bedroom opens up to a spacious deck where you can savor a luscious sunset and let the sound of the breaking waves caress you to sleep in your king-size bed.

To make your vacation planning easier, we provide general travel information about Eleuthera Island, Bahamas flights, restaurants serving Continental and Bahamas cuisine, Eleuthera car rentals and more. We invite you to come and enjoy this serene oasis, far from the stress of your busy life.

Breath Taking Paradise

  • 5 of 5

This trip is just what me and my fiancee' needed! we were both burned out from work and needed some R&R... Well this vacation exceeded our expectations! The Island Breeze Cottage was everything we wanted and more. They went far and beyond to make sure our needs were met, we didn't want for anything. The scenery was breath taking! I loved going to sleep to the sound of the ocean and waking up to the ocean view. We loved it so much we are looking at making plans to return in the near future. Thank you so much for making our time away so wonderfully relaxed!!

Sincerely,

Dawn & Tony

Fantastic!

  • 5 of 5

I was looking to escape the frigid NY winter and came across the Island Breeze listing while searching for a place that offered true relaxation. I booked it last minute, and Katy was extremely accommodating. I had a short stay in February, and I’m counting down the days until I get to go back. I have no words to express what an amazing time I had on the island. The pictures truly don’t do the place justice.

I know I should review it in detail to give you a better sense of what to expect, but I want you to be surprised as I was. From the scenic drive from the airport, to the moment you step foot in the cottage. It was unbelievable. The cottage is located in a lovely part of the island, spacious, clean, charmingly decorated, and with a breathtaking view. Nothing beats waking up to the sound of the ocean, and stepping out on to the balcony to drink your coffee. The place is stocked with all the essentials; they even provided me with a local cellphone, and contrary to other reviews, I had no issue with the wifi.

Nighttime was one of my favorite times during my stay. After a long day of swimming and exploring eleuthera, I’d cook and spent the evening out on the balcony or the deck watching the stars and listening to music.

This place is a hidden gem, and I can’t wait to go back. I wish had stayed longer considering the 80-degree difference in weather I had to come back to! Look no further, you won’t be disappointed

Owner's Response: Hi Ana and thank you for your kind review. Katy and I are always thrilled when our guests have as wonderful a time as we do while at Island Breeze. It is truly a special spot. Please let us know when you would like to return. After many service calls with Batelco our WIFI has been operating quite well and our caretaker Anne and her crew have been doing a wonderful job. Regards, Michael

Perfect for two!

The private cottage was absolutely what we needed for our honeymoon. The view and sound of the ocean was magnificent! Very quiet and peaceful! We heard nothing but the ocean all day and night. The cottage itself was clean and everything was in working condition. We recommend getting bug spray for the sandflies and a rental car for a day. Our guide on the Island, Stanton is very knowledgeable and can assist with anything you need during your stay.

The weather was good the whole time. The water was a bit choppy, but I think that was due to hurricane season approaching, nonetheless, you can still get in the water.

Getting to the Island was a bit of a challenge, but once we got there it was worth it. We recommend flying into Nassau and then a direct flight into Governor's Harbour.

We really enjoyed our stay and looking foward to going back as soon as we can!

LOOK NO FURTHER - THIS WILL EXCEDE YOUR EXPECTATIONS FOR ESCAPE!!!!

My husband and I needed a get away to relax, re-honeymoon, revive our general happy nature and Island Breeze provided us all that we needed to become re-juvinated! If you are looking for a place to take in caribbean beauty, feel gentle ocean breezes 24/7, have privacy yet meet lovely locals, relax day and night, swim, snorkel, go shelling, eat seafood, and re-connect with all the good in life... we say book Island Breeze.

We were thrilled to discover the only surprises with the cottage was an extra bathroom, washer, dryer and it truly became our home for the week. Mike, Katy, Samantha and Ann provided us every bit of information we needed to book our travels, pack our bags, and get the transportation we wanted for our week's stay. We had all the privacy we wanted at the cottage and it really was our own beach. There were no worries getting to the cottage from the airport and exploring the entire island at our leisure. It was the just as we had hoped for and then some!

Perfect Honeymoon Cottage!

  • 5 of 5

My husband & I just returned from our honeymoon at the cottage and we enjoyed our stay immensely! I'd say it was perfect - perfect weather, perfect view, perfect beach! We rented a car so we could travel into town for groceries and then spent most of our time either in the cottage or on the beach and loved every minute of it! It was so relaxing and beautiful. The photos don't do it justice! It was very quiet and clean. Don't pass this little cottage up if you are looking for a romantic get-away-from-it-all. We sincerely hope to return to the Bahamas again someday!

Very nice place

  • 4 of 5

We spent a week at Island breeze and we loved it. Its a very confortable cottage in front of a beautifull sandy Beach. The house is very well furnished, the room has lovely sea view, wifi was working all perfectly. Only one negative point but this is not due to the owner : the sun flyers are a real problem here and they are maybe more active on this side because of the mangrove behind the house. Otherwise the spot is perfect and peacefull and you will hardly find anyone on the Beach. The owner, Katy was very helpfull and responsive and she did everything possible to make our stay enjoyable. Thank you and dont hesitate to go to Eleuthera : its a dream place
