4 bedrooms, sleeps 6 adults, 2 children

4 bedroom, 4 bath home with living/dining room, small but fully stocked kitchen, cable TV, Internet, crib, lots of books & games, DVD/CD, bring your ipod and tennis balls.

'Wreckless': originally part of the Potlatch Club, is located on 'The Banks Road' adjacent to Pineapple Fields, this 4 bedroom/4 bath family home has its own tennis court & private path to one of the most magnificent pink sand beaches in the world. The beach is protected by an outer barrier reef yet has a small one within snorkeling distance.

The walk from Wreckless to the beach is an easy 3 minute walk.

Ultimate Home Away from Home!

  • 5 of 5

Spending a week on Eleuthera at the end of February - what an escape from a dreary NYC winter - and Wreckless was the perfect place to escape to! We were right across the road from Tippy's (a Tippy Sunshine everyday is a must) and loved having a private walkway to the beach, which is literally 2 minutes from the front door. The bedrooms were spacious and living areas comfortable; I particularly loved having a such a well-appointed kitchen so that we could make quick lunch or put together snacks for the beach. At night, we loved sitting on the upper deck and look for shooting stars!

The house is next door to a convenient deli and the Levy Preserve is a 5-minute walk beyond that. An easy drive into Governor's Harbor itself with its many charms - the bakery (amazing conch patties!) French Leave, Turtle Lake for kayaking, Friday Fish Fry - and conveniences like the grocery and liquor stores. (Tip: "The Boat" comes in on Tuesdays, so Wednesday are a great day to shop for supplies!)

I can't recommend Wreckless enough for a peaceful, beautiful stay on Eleuthera. We're already planning our next trip!

Welcome to Paradise

  • 5 of 5

Tennis in the front yard, private access to empty beach across the street and bar down the street. If that isn't paradise, I don't know what is. The property is beautifully maintained, the rooms are all comfortable and have private bathrooms and air conditioning. There are decks on all sides of the house so if the beach is too windy and you are too tired for tennis there are plenty of places to lay out. The house is walking distance from Tippy's, Beach House and Banks Road Deli so we didn't rent a car and were perfectly happy with our options.
