CHARMING, SECLUDED, BEACHFRONT COTTAGE

Double Bay House Rental Photos and Description

1BR Beachfront Vacation Rental Double Bay, Bahamas

Privacy is yours! Our charming beachfront cottage is situated on six acres of undisturbed land near the end of a two-mile pink sand beach. It's perfect for couples seeking solitude or a special honeymoon. The house sits on a sand dune several hundred feet from the waters edge. The only thing between you and the beach are palm trees and a beautifully landscaped path cut through the coconut palms. The all-sand beach has a gradual slope to the water. Great swimming, beach combing, snorkeling and scuba diving are just steps from your back door. Our one bedroom cottage is brightly decorated with many furnishings handmade by local artisans. Rustic terra cotta tiles, a wooden ceiling, and ceiling fans add to the charm.In 2010 we renovated the kitchen, bathroom and exterior with all new windows and doors. Inside and out, this home provides the backdrop for a truly relaxing, tropical island experience!

Suitability:
  • non smoking only
  • pets not allowed
  • children welcome

We are from the Chicago area and are a family of six. Tom and I grew up vacationing along the Gulf and Atlantic coast as children. We stayed on a private island in the British West Indies for two weeks after we were married and we fell in love with the natural beauty of the islands. Five years later we visited Eleuthera for the first time and feel in love with Double Bay beach, the island, and the wonderful people of Eleuthera. We bought our first property before we left!

Leigh Ann purchased this house in 1995

During our first trip we traveled the island from Harbor Island to Bannerman Town with never a thought to buy anything here. The first week we had discovered Double Bay and kept going back to 'our' beach. It was quiet, natural, seldom did we see another person on the beach, and we loved the sound of the waves crashing. The second week we found ourselves in the realtors office staring at a map of Double Bay with lots marked off for sale. By the time we left we had our first little piece of paradise! A year later we renovated the make-shift garage on the property to a house, and have been going down several times a year every year since.

Eighteen years and 4 children later we still come to our favorite place on earth. In 1995 there were only 2 phones on all of Double Bay, no cell service, and internet was not even available on the island. If you were lucky you had a window air conditioner in the bedroom. Each year we would add something new to the house or property. In 2011 we finished a major house renovation with new windows and doors, a new kitchen, air conditioning throughout the house, and Wi-Fi. It's amazing to think about all the technology improvements in such a short time yet the island is still much the same as it was 18 years ago. The beach is as beautiful as ever, the island really does recover after a major hurricane or two, and the people of Eleuthera still welcome you like family. It's truly been a privilege having this piece of paradise, sharing it with people like you, and most importantly spending days and weeks playing in the sand.

AMAZING DESTINATION

  • 5 of 5
We just returned from our vacation at the Palms. We had such a fabulous time. We were on our honeymoon, and it was the perfect seclusion location for that. Full body tans can be guaranteed.
Dont tell too many people, But Double Bay is probably the second most beautiful beach overall in Eleuthera. We dont want the secret to get out, or else it will be much harder to skinny dip next time we go.
This property is well equipped and maintained fabulously.
You cant beat the airconditioned bedroom for those hot Bahama Days.
Dont look anywhere else, just pick this property, and set your mind at ease mon...

TOP 3 VACATIONS OF OUR LIVES!

  • 5 of 5
It was everything we had hoped for and more! The property description was very accurate. The house was clean, very well equipped and exactly what we wanted. The beach was virtually deserted every day. Leigh Anne, the owner, was very attentive to our needs and answered all of questions promptly. Bottom line...we could not have expected any thing more and we will be back next year! We are already looking at dates.

EVERYTHING WE HOPED FOR AND MORE!!!

  • 5 of 5
My wife and I stayed here for a week in March and we were thrilled with our experience. Often in Eleuthera you will hear the tagline "it's not for everyone". This place, The Palms, was perfect for us. Leigh Ann made our stay especially nice with her helpfulness and ease in our transactions. The house itself is very clean and well maintained, as are the grounds and property surrounding it. It's also well stocked with cookware, utensils, and wares that help a guest feel right at home. Maps, old movies, and beach supplies as well. And then, of course, the beach and the scenery... Deep Thanks to Leigh Ann for a perfect visit.

A PERFECT GETAWAY...WAY AWAY!

  • 5 of 5
This was our 7th trip to Eleuthera, and the first to the Palms. The cottage is beautiful in every way for a couple and we were lucky enough to be just a couple on this trip. Great bed, lots of room, lots of big fluffy towels, good air conditioning, tasteful furnishings, great artwork. beautiful landscaping, wonderful jungle path to the deserted beach, extreme privacy, and so much more made this perfect. We saw one person (once) on the beach when we were there.

When we arrived we quickly put on our swim suits and headed for the beach. That was the last time we used our suits for the remainder of our trip. We were in the water at least twice a day. The outside shower was great (Moen fixtures on an outside shower!)

DSL WiFi internet made for free phone calls on my smartphone. The phone company's service worked most of the time.

There is no television antenna, cable, or satellite. However the DVD selection is amazing if you like classic movies.

Property management was delightful. The owner is very easy to deal with.

If we ever get a chance to travel again without our family, this will be the place.

ESCAPE

  • 5 of 5
Do you want to restore your soul? Pamper yourself in the most rewarding, beautiful and relaxing environment. Palms of Double Bay is truly a peaceful getaway. Do yourself a favor, visit Palms of Double Bay.

The beach at Double Bay is mere steps from the lovely home. The entire beach is comprised of pink powdered sand. The snorkeling is amazing.

The cottage is fully equipped. The beautifully renovated kitchen has everything that you need. The air conditioning is great for peaceful evening sleep or keep the windows open to hear the ocean.

I have been coming to this amazing island for 15 years. Palms of Double Bay is truly our favorite.

IN THE EYE OF THE STORM

  • 5 of 5
Our holiday coincided with the visit of Hurricane Irene. In the days leading up to our scheduled arrival Leigh Ann kept us informed with updates of the effects of the storm. Her cottage suffered only minor damage but we decided to cancel our trip owing to the fact that essential supplies on the island were running low and we intended to travel with our baby. We were impressed with Leigh Ann's honest and conscientious attitude and we will definitely try to stay in her cottage sometime soon.

Double Bay is a two mile pink sand beach centrally located south of Palmetto Point in the middle of Eleuthera on the Atlantic ocean. This private area has both a beautiful beach and excellent reefs. Our home is situated on 6 acres of natural beach frontage. Many guests return to our home each year for the privacy it provides. For those that like to explore, nearly any road you take from the main highway leads to paradise. Local communities offer dining options, grocery stores, banks and shops making it possible to obtain nearly everything you'll need for your stay. Snorkeling, diving and fishing guides are also available on the island. From the Pineapple to the Conch Festival, communities up and down the island host a variety of events throughout the year. These are always a favorite of our guests. For those seeking a little more action, Harbor Island is a short drive and ferry ride away.
