This is our families' vacation home and no detail has been overlooked. You will find luxuries and amenities that you will find at no other property. Because again, this is our families' vacation home that our family wants to share with you. And to anyone that has rented before, you know the difference.If you want to walk out the door and snorkel and/or fish, get the best lobster pizza EVER and walk down 3 miles of beach and not see another person day after day, this is the vacation home for you. This house is meant to be enjoyed with a relaxed, laid back interior that is both comfortable and luxurious. Our home is kid friendly and adult happy!

We've also just recently added a 7th bedroom to the main house as well as a two bedroom guest cottage in the back for our larger groups.

Now you can stay a second week for 10% off the normal price! Note: Offer only available for one extra week! Contact us for rates for stays longer than 2 weeks.

However, rest assure that our house is not for sale and there will be no interruption or changes to your vacation plans made with us.

What else can we say.....

  • 5 of 5
  • Submitted: Mar 7, 2014
  • Stayed: Feb 2014
We chose this place because of the reviews and photos and the photos don't give it much justice. What makes this place stand out is that they have thought of everything kayaks, small boats, snorkel gear, hawaiian spear slings, fishing poles, board games, cards, tons of DVDs, kids toys, beach toys, pool toys, life vests, beach towels, stocked kitchen, I can go on and on..... This place feels like it was built for a large group of people to enjoy every possible day in every possible way.

Susan was great making sure we were ready for our trip. The staff was great and I would recommend having Beryl cook some of your meals, she was a pleasure. I would also recommend bringing in meat and chicken like we did for some of your meals.

My only complaint was I wasn't able to spear the elusive lobster. I was able to find 5 of them right out in front but was unable to spear them. I now refer to them as "the cheetah of the sea". I became obsessed with catching them and even lost a spear in one of my attempts (don't worry Susan, I replaced it) . Next time I plan to bring dynamite to ensure my nemesis doesn't win again ;). With that said I'm sure if I hired a guide I would have learned all the tricks and could of saved myself from defeat.

In all seriousness this place is great, it's really the only reason I considered Eleuthera in the first place. We like to experience new islands but this is the one time I would come back to one just for the lodging experience.

Thank you
Ross Family, Marino Family, and Davis Family.

A Beachfront Home that is Really a 5 Star Resort

Our first visit to Eleuthera, but not the last. Susan Keeler and her family have created the perfect island getaway. We have rented many island getaways over the past 20 years; and I must say that the careful consideration, attention to personal details, and hospitality we experienced during the rental process and our stay were genuinely friendly, relaxed and thorough.

The home is beautifully designed and decorated. The furnishings and appliances are all top shelf. They have everything you will want/need. The staff is eager to please and accessible when you want them. The property is ideally situated on Eleuthera - and has a most beautiful beach with a reef directly in front of the house. The property is somewhat isolated, so we did not see anybody else on the beach for the entire week we were there. The pool and the surrounding yard is very well cared for by the groundskeeper, Desmond, who is very friendly and knowledgeable about the local area; and is an excellent source of information about the local fish. The house is equipped for fishing and lobstering - we enjoyed several delicious meals of grilled Caribbean Spiny Lobster that we caught. Snorkeling gear, glass bottom kayaks, windsurfers, Hobie Cat, and other assorted water toys kept us amused.

Our party consisted of 4 seniors, 5 young adults, and 2 grandbabies - and the house was more than ample for our comfort. A friendly cleaning crew came through every other day and tidied things up. The house is around 15 minutes drive from the next town, which we visited a lot to buy supplies, meals, and just hang out at the fishing docks. The local people were always friendly and helpful. I've been to a lot of islands, and Eleuthera is remarkable in that nobody has bars on their windows. Petty crime appears to be non-existent. I felt very safe on this vacation.

I've only been home a couple days now, and am already beginning to plan our return to Five Palms. It is that good.

50th Anniversary Celebration spent in Heaven

  • Submitted: Jan 18, 2014
  • Stayed: Nov 2013
Our family of 15 (8 adults and 7 grandchildren ages 7-13) had a spectacular vacation spending the week of Thanksgiving, 2013 at The Five Palms Beach house in Eleuthera. The home is spacious, beautifully decorated and equipped with everything you need (cards, games, movies, videos and plenty of books. We enjoyed long walks on the beautiful private beach and used the Hoby Cat, surf & boogie boards and all the beach toys. Everyone of the staff members could not have been nicer and extremely helpful even the gorgeous beach was raked and cleaned every morning.

We took advantage of the detailed guest book having fabulous & fun dinners at the local restaurants (take extra cash since many do not honor credit cards.) Beryl cooked us scrumptious meals especially her homemade cinnamon breakfast buns and a delicious fresh lobster dinner!! Beryl was also extremely helpful in planning our weeks schedule.

The older children and fathers had a fabulous scuba exhibition with Al. All of us thoroughly enjoyed our day with Flipper starting with cracking the fresh stone crabs at the pool then devouring them for lunch. Flipper then took to another beautiful private beach for snorkeling.

I could go on & on with many more reasons not to miss a trip of a lifetime staying at The Five Palms Beach House.

Many thanks to Susan Keeler and the Schmauder’ s for their continued support and help before and during our vacation!

Golden Anniversary

  • 5 of 5
  • Submitted: Jul 9, 2013
  • Stayed: Jun 2013
For our 50th wedding anniversary we wanted someplace special where we could selfishly have our kids and grandkids all to ourselves and have a fun time. Five Palms was everything we wanted and then some. It was a fun and way too fast week with nothing but good things to say from our adult children to the youngest grandson. Would we do it again? You D...right we would and in a heartbeat.

Great Vacation!

  • 5 of 5

What an incredible place! This was my second time visiting Five Palms and the experience just keeps getting better. The house is incredibly well-equipped, clean, and bright with amazing views of the ocean. Indoor spaces are perfect for large groups with lots of inviting hang-out areas to spread out into. There's a place for everyone, whether it's the screened-in porch, playing cards at the table or reading books in the cozy living room.

We had a great time outdoors too- snorkeling, spearfishing, sailing, kayaking...The reef outside the house is incredible! We caught fresh fish and lobster for dinner several nights in a row and when we were unsuccessful just went down the road to tarpum bay and bought it from the local fisherman. The house comes fully loaded with all types of swim and snorkel gear- no need to bring a lot of stuff!

Had a great experience scuba-diving with Al and Elroy at Ocean Fox and a fantastic lunch at Tippy's - otherwise couldn't tear ourselves away from the house and the beach!

I would highly recommend Five Palms to anyone needing a great vacation- every need is anticipated so that all you're left to do is enjoy yourself and your time with friends and family.
