BAHAMAS ELEUTHERA, TEN BAY BEACH;COVE PROPERTY; PRIVACY

Ten Bay Beach House Rental Photos and Description

House, 2 Bedrooms, 2 Baths, (Sleeps 4)

The house is built to take advantage of its location on the water with bedrooms and living area facing the ocean. Each bedroom has its own full bathroom. The master bedroom has a king-size bed; the second bedroom has twins that can be converted to a king. Plenty of linens provided. This house works well for 2 couples because of the way it is laid out with bedrooms on each end and a common living area in the center. Bedrooms and living area open to the front deck and water. Each bedroom has its own covered sitting area that joins the front deck. For those who like to cook, the kitchen is well-furnished or guests could elect to have a true Bahamian meal cooked for them at the house. Many local restaurants are within easy driving distance to the house. The property offers privacy. Serenity Cove home is tucked back in a cove and sits in the center of three lots, all owned by the property owner. Watch the night life on the water with the help of high-beam lighting that covers the cove area. Ten Bay Beach is one of the nicest beaches on Eleuthera; great for sunbathing, swimming, walking, and snorkeling right from the beach. Vacationers enjoy getting into the water in front of the house for swimming and snorkeling, or going to the beach which is a short 50 yards through the water. Many folks vist the entire island, but say their favorite place is right at Ten Bay Beach! A favorite past time is feeding fish from the deck. Renter has two kayaks available for rent at the rate of $100 per week for 2 single kayaks. The deck on this house is high and over coral rock. We always caution folks with small children. If you are an island visitor, you realize the tiny no-see-ums also love the area. We recommend that visitors who are sensitive, bring needed repellent. Water shoes are also recommended.

Our goal was to find an island where we felt safe, and with people we felt were genuinely friendly. After searching many islands in the Bahamas, we found that on Eleuthera.

Ten Bay Beach and its surrounding cove area supports an abundance of sea life that feed on the coral. Renters are delighted to watch a variety of fish from the deck.

While the island offers a slow-paced and peaceful vacation, a number of restaurants can be found within easy driving distance of the house. Many visitors enjoy purchasing fish from the docks at Tarpum Bay or Governor's Harbour and cooking at home. Grocery stores on the island offer almost anything you need.

If you are hunting peace and quiet, and you love the beach, and being in the water, Ten Bay Beach is as good as it gets!

BEST BEACH VACATION EVER !!!!!!

WOW!!!! This was our first visit to the Bahamas for my family of 3. I thought my 21 year old might of gotten bored but this place seem to put him in his own little world.. he even commented that this was amazing beauty and peaceful to him and my husband never left the deck and couldn't get him out of the water or kayaks....seeing them so at peace and enjoying themselves so much made me feel so good and I knew that this place was for us!!!
The house was incredibly clean and tons of linen. The outside deck was really nice for morning coffee and in the evenings to watch the marine life swim by. The owners were especially helpful in answering all of our questions from the very first day we decided to stay here. The house was very comfortable and big enough for everyone to have their own space. The caretaker delivered all of our groceries prior to our arrival...anyone thinking of using this service, I highly recommend it.. (ASK OWNER for details )The location of the house was awesome, short drive to great beaches, gas stations and restaurants. We rented a car from one of the caretakers and it was perfect, no problems , ran great, even had decent gas mileage and the A/C worked fine not hat we needed it.
If your thinking about renting this place DON'T HESITATE. you won't want to leave!!!! We will definitely be back!! Thank you again for sharing your lovely peace of paradise. Can't get this place off our minds.
THE WHO DATS from Louisiana!!!!

Owner's Response: Good morning Richard and Heidi, thank you so much for a glowing report of your visit. We are pleased the house and surroundings met your expectations. Eleuthera has a way of putting a spell on visitors who like beautiful water and beaches, quiet time on a deck with a favorite beverage. So glad that Sue was able to help you with groceries and the car she rented worked out for you. She is also a wonderful cook who can prepare a meal at the house for you or deliver based on your menu choices. Thanks for your nice email about the possibility of a return visit next year. Come back!!

Second visit as amazing as the first

My wife and I, joined by my brother and his wife, just spent our second, two-week vacation at this amazing property and it was everything I raved about last year. Once again the home was incredibly clean, tastefully decorated and located in the most beautiful bay on the island. The marine life was awesome and we loved sitting on the deck at night with the ocean lights on illuminating the sea life. This year we saw dolphins, a moray eel, a number of nurse sharks (harmless) and a barracuda that visited the cove daily. It was my first year fly fishing for Bonefish and all I can say is what an amazing fight.

Owner's Response: Hi Bob & Trish, thank you for you warm comments about your visit! So glad that you brought your brother and his wife this year. Our goal each year is to update the appearance of the house so that it stays fresh for return visitors and appeals to first time visitors as well. And, thank you for your comments regarding the cleanliness of the house; I have shared those with Sue, our housekeeper. She does a wonderful job and I try to let her know how much visitors appreciate her work. You and Trish have been great to work with over the last 2 years; we hope you will visit again!! Nell

This was probably one of the best trips we have been on and our second trip to Eleuthera! The house was delightful, the location, the actual house and the owners made this a great experience for my family. It was the perfect amount of space for the three of us..... we enjoyed seeing the rays, sharks and barracudas right outside from our deck. We found plenty of starfish and sand dollars scattered on the ocean floor. The kayaks were very handy for my daughter and I to venture around a bit, but almost daily we walked over to Ten Bay Beach - met the neighbors and had a few Kalik's. We dined at Tippy's and Mate & Jenny's a few nights, but also dined in quite often. We drove to Lighthouse Beach and it was WAY worth the drive....it was the best beach I have been to in the Caribbean so far! The view was breathtaking! Ocean Hole was neat to see and and fish fry in Governors Harbor was fun. The conch salad was great! Rock and Nell were great hosts and very helpful - getting us set up with a rental car and were always very helpful. We will be visiting again and staying here....loved Leuthera and the Cove.
Owner's Response: Hi Theresa, thank you for your kind words. Nice people are easy to work with and you were especially so. We are so glad that you enjoyed your second trip to the island; also so glad that you got out and explored the beauty of the island. Please come back!

Perfect for exploring the entire Island of Eleuthera

Visited Serenity Cove with my family of four with 2 boys 11 and 14. We were in the water by the house within 10 minutes of arrival, and rarely left it, so fun to see so much ocean life right there! We spent days just snorkling the rock/coral edges of Ten Bay Beach, along with the sanddollars in the middle of Ten Bay Beach, only taking the dead/white ones. Loved the collector sea urchins all over the place. We rented a spear and caught a spiny lobster out front of the Pink House. We also used the book "Elusive Beaches of Eleuthera" to find about 15 other beaches. Twin Sisters (right next to the Glass Bridge) had the best shelling. Lighthouse beach was well worth the drive, best photographes of the trip. Caught the shark feeding at Cape Eleuthera (~3:00) and Go Pro'ed the nurse sharks. Toured the Cape Eleuthera Institute who are doing great things for the environment of Eleuthera! Then we went north and went out with a local fisherman in Current for a day of diving for Conch, fishing, spear fishing, and snorkeling the beautiful ocean floor covered with purple sea fans, orange coral, and fish everywhere, unspoiled beauty!! Really wished we didn't visit Harbor Island, so touristy. Wished we had time for the Fishbones tour, next time. The house was perfect, had everything we needed. Loved the outdoor shower for quick rinse off. The air conditioner allowed for great sleeping to revive and explore the next day. We had perfect weather, rained for 10 minutes one day and that was all. We rented an Explorer which allowed us full access to all beach paths, glad we had it. Buccaneer was our favorite restaurant, but we ate at home a lot. Thanks for allowing us to rent your beautiful house for a most relaxing, ocean exploring vacation!!!

Beautiful and Peaceful Stay

  • Submitted: Jun 13, 2013

We have just returned from 10 days in Eleuthera and could not have stayed at a more peaceful home.

The location was perfect as we were traveling with two children (8 and 9 years old) because we could easily get to grocery stores, restaurants and gas stations and visit other beaches without spending too much time in the car.
The house was very clean upon arrival and we were able to just bring our stuff in and move in!!! The kitchen was very user friendly and the bathrooms were clean with enough fresh linens to provide for a family with young children. There was enough space in the house that we could spread out and each have a little quiet space when we needed it. The kayaks were perfect!! We used them daily and paddled over to ten bay in under a couple minutes (but could have walked in low tide). They were a life saver on rainy days because the kids were amused paddling in the rain!! Lastly (because it rained a lot) we really appreciated the house being set so far from the main road (Queens Highway) because we took many long walks exploring the roads surrounding the house and it was safe enough for the kids to go off on short excursions, too.Overall, a perfect house on a perfect island.

Rock and Nell were VERY quick in the communication and answered any questions that I had leading up to our trip promptly. Even while we were there, I had a question and Nell got back to me right away. They recommended Arthur Nixon for a car rental and he was super reliable and met us right on time at GHB and the work worked out very well for us.

We are already planning our return and will plan on staying at Serenity Cove once again!! Thank You!

Owner's Response: Hi Jennifer,

We can't thank you enough for your glowing comments. You were one of those exceptionally nice folks to work with throughout the time prior to and during your stay. Sorry about all the rain; it is one of those things you just can't predict; however a bit unusual for the time you were on the island. We do hope that you will return. We are so glad that you enjoyed the island and the house. Many thanks, Rock & Nell
