SECLUDED PRIVATE PINK SAND BEACH FRONT MEDITERRANEAN ESTATE

Double Bay Estate Rental Photos and Description

Estate, 4 Bedrooms + Convertible bed(s), 4 Baths, (Sleeps 8-12)

Villa de Palmas was designed by an architectural firm that specializes in Mediterranean/Caribbean style homes with the high end client in mind. The estate occupies nearly 3 acres on a very secluded pink sand beach and is situated on one of the highest points in the area commanding a 360 degree view of the lush tropical foliage and the azure seascape. There are two very private homes apart from one another. Both have fully appointed rooms affording magnificent panoramic views designed to capture the gentle trade winds that bless the island. All are generous and comfortable and include a great room, fully equipped modern kitchen, office desk with DSL high speed internet/wireless, telephone, entertainment areas with bose sound docks, dinning, and living areas, functional outdoor pergola with a stone dining table, bar and barbecue combination, 2 separate lounge areas with high end chaise accommodating 4, a covered wrap around loggia with stylish furniture, each home has 2 master bedrooms for a total of 4 with separate entrances and balconies, library breezeway and much more. The separate private cottage home captures as well a stunning ocean view and is a bit closer to the ocean. Entering the estate from the road is a circular drive. In the center is a pineapple fountain and pond with water lillies and fish.

About the Grand Estate of Villa de Palmas: The Estate of Villa de Palmas has been family owned since its inception. After 3 years of searching, the right piece of beach front property was purchased in 1989. The estate took 8 years to develop with a vision for grandness 'island style' and now we can share the wealth of the land and water that has been blessed with such beauty and serenity. Today after 15 years Villa de Palmas continues that vision. Just a few welcoming steps up from the entrance will afford an enlightening rejuvenation of what island life should be, totally carefree. The cottage expands this beautiful estate and stands above the vegetation including a unique view of the ocean with gentle breezes through the full loggia front. Take in an afternoon tea, enjoy a spectacular view of the sea, feel the ocean breezes and smell the villa’s flora, fauna and unspoiled vegetation. Villa de Palmas is in a class of its own catering to the high end client.

More about the Grand Estate of Villa de Palmas: The villa’s crown jewel is just a short walk down a sand pathway lined with sea lilies and palms to the secluded powdery and pearlescent pink-sand beach. With its crescent shape stretching 3 miles and an abundance of natural sand dunes with sea oat grass, sea grapes and coconut palms, you will be immersed in its tranquility. Stroll along the shore at waters edge and you will soon discover the hidden coves welcoming you to take a dip in the warm crystal clear turquoise water. On your way back, pause at the beach’s entrance under a 16 foot palm thatched-roof tiki pavilion. Four whimsical and colorful designer chairs invite you to take a siesta after your beach walk - the perfect venue for gazing at the sea while you listen to the songs of the wind through the casuarinas. Tune in or tune out this is a perfect setting for mindless relaxation. You may be there all day, it truly is paradise.

Both my wife Dhjanna and I are the happy owners of our beautiful Mediterranean Estate on the island of Eleuthera in the Bahamas named 'Villa de Palmas'. 'Palmas' meaning many palms captures the estate quite well. The Land was purchased in 1989. After many years of hard work the estate was complete in 2000. We truly are amazed at how well it all turned out. My wife and I have 2 wonderful girls 14 and 18, yes they are a handful. I am an international airline pilot for a major airline in the USA. My wife helps manage the property along with our home in Philadelphia and frequently travel to the Philippines where she was born. Needless to say we manage quite busy lives. Our goal is to share what we have in the unique way of offering the estate this way. It is a real joy to hear all the vacation experiences of our guests over the years. Life is beautiful and we feel very blessed. Thank you so much for taking the time to visit our site and we look forward to having you as our personal guests in our beautiful home on the lovely island of Eleuthera in the Bahamas.

The best on Double Bay!

Both the main house and the guest house were equipped with all we needed for a fantastic stay. The gazebo near the beach was the perfect place to enjoy Eleuthera's unmatched beach. Property was perfectly maintained and Anne, the manager, was wonderful. The owner was exceptional; his handbook covered everything one needs to know when staying in Eleuthera. We've been to this island a few times and this house is by far the best. We had a simply fabulous week at Villa de Palmas.

Welcoming Villa de Palmas

This was our first trip to Eleuthera and we were extremely pleased with this amazing property. The villa is well equipped & maintained. The kitchen has everything you need, and each bedroom has its on separate bathroom and balcony. The balconies offer panoramic views as far as the eye can see...along side of relaxing ocean breezes. The ocean temperature is absolutely perfect. The owner was very hospitable and made us feel right at home. This property is highly recommended for anyone looking for a relaxing, comfortable luxury get away.


Additional notes:

If you are traveling to Eleuthera for the first time it is highly recommended that you make arrangements to follow a driver from the rental car company to the home as some of the roads do not have street signs.

Also important to check the ferry schedules if you are not flying directly into Eleuthera.

Warmest Regards,

Alex & Michele

This has been our second stay at Villa de Palmas. That should say something, and we've just rebooked for April of 2014. This property has been perfect for us. Two suites seperated by a great room/kitchen provide plenty of privacy, and if more bedrooms are needed, a detached garage with a two bedroom/2 bath cottage provides plenty of space for a larger group if needed. The bedrooms are air conditioned if needed, and the a/c is easy to use and effective. The kitchen is well equiped with everything you need including sharp knives and an abundance of cooking ware, and serving ware. We love the seclusion of Double Bay, but also appreciate how convenient it is to whatever you need. It's location 5 minutes south of Palmetto Point, or 15 minutes south of Gov. Harb. allows convience to whatever you need. The home has wifi, for those that need to be connected!

The property is well taken care of, and considerting the smack it took from Hurrican Sandy recently I was pleasantly surprised how great the house and property looked. A nice pathway leads from the house to the beach with a shower available for after beach rinsing, and closer to the beach is tiki hut for escape from the sun, or a nice shady place to enjoy a tall Goombay Smash!

Double Bay beach is great for walking and for the snorkeler, plenty of reefs to explore. The prevailing breeze out of the southeast coming off the ocean feels spectacular.

The property manager, Anne, is very attentive and responsive if anything requires attention. I wouldn't hesitate to recommend this property to friends and family. Enjoy!

Stunning, well maintained and well appointed property on gorgeous beach. The perfect place to relax and get away from it all. Beautifully landscaped from the entry gates to the gentle sloping path to the cabana on the beach. Be sure to follow the owners recommendations for restaurants, shopping and other beaches to visit (if you can tear yourself away from the one you are on). Definitely worth a repeat visit.

Owner's Response: My wife is now getting more high fives than me for her amenities project, hey I built the kitchen! Just kidding, she really has a special eye and sense for what guests are looking for inside. We always remain humble and want to listen for any suggestions that our guests may have for a better vacation. Improvement is part of our vocabulary.

Christmas at Villa de Palmas

  • Submitted: Jan 5, 2012
  • Stayed: Dec 2011
We chose Villa de Palmas to accommodate 9 family members traveling from California and the UK. It was the perfect halfway point for all of us for to meet for Christmas 2011. The house was spacious, very comfortable and suited our needs perfectly. We enjoyed the beach and the snorkeling in Double Bay. Local people were friendly and very helpful. We highly recommend this house, as well as Eleuthera for a laid back, relaxing holiday if you want to get far from the madding crowds.
Owner's Response: For a large group they traveled far to get to paradise for the holiday. We even set a Christmas tree up complete with lights so they would feel at home.
