Small piece of Paradise
My wife and I celebrated our 25th anniversary in Eleuthera at Beside the Pointe We were there first part of June, 2011. Spent 14 days lounging, relaxing and snorkeling. The island was so peaceful, friendly, and beautiful, we thought we were on another planet. The cottage is adequately supplied with all the basic needs of home, very clean and comfortable. The grounds are beautifully landscaped, all the way from the entrance. The view is spectacular and the beach is secluded. We saw only 2 people the whole time, way to the south of us. The beach is great for walks and very long (maybe a half mile or more). The water is shallow at the shore for easy access and the snorkeling was fun (not much coral or fish) but still fun. We found shells and sandollars by the hundreds. The stairs to the beach from the cottage was a bit of a challenge for us flatlanders, but not too bad. The terrain between the stairs and the beach was very rocky and challenging for any clumsy person. The owner was easy to contact through email, (provides an emergency cell phone) very informative and honest about the rental and all amenities.
The road leaving Queens Highway to the cottage (about 2 miles) is extremely rough and only one lane. I was OK with it but my wife has a bad back and didnt care for it. To make a long story short, we had a wonderful time and cannot wait to return.
PS bring lots of OFF, no see ums and mosquitoes were vicious. The cottage has a screened in porch and was a life saver (however the no see ums can get through the screen).
Book it now before its too late.
Tippys was our favorite place in North Palmetto. Bakery in GH is wonderful (get there before noon) Fresh fish from the locals at the dock in GH a must. Friday night fish fry in GH was lots of fun. Visited other wonderful beaches (they are everywhere) (buy your hard spirits there, much cheaper-Stolis $15 / fifth) Take good waterproof shoes, thick soled (crocs were my favorite) not those water shoes, soles are too thin.
Owner's Response: Thanks Mark and Sherry for your kind comments. I am happy to know that Beside the
Pointe played a major role in your 25th anniversary celebrations, congratulations. The
one mile tract into Beside the Pointe is very rustic and a little bumpy in spots but the
tranquility and quietness and privacy more than makes up for it and especially the view
when you get to the top. Thank you for being very nice renters, my property manager
enjoyed meeting you and I look forward to having you as a guest again at Beside the Pointe .
yes Mark, those steps are designed to keep you in shape while you enjoy your holidays,
