We built this great vacation getaway with the help of Scott Bartels, his crew, and several local Bahamian craftsmen. This is the same building system,SIPS, as the Colonial Elementary School(hurricane shelter) in Ft. Myers, Florida. You can feel safe as the hurricane of 2011(Cat 5 by local reports for 7 hours) had no impact on the house except for the neighbors asphalt shingles cutting up the screen enclosures. With the 3 9' sliders open, there is almost never a need for the AC upstairs. This place is so private you will almost never see another car yet alone a person. Daisy, the neighborhood K-9 will stop by if she smells something good. You will find her to be a most polite drifter as she makes her rounds in Rainbow Bay.

Sam & Rosie Graham purchased this house in 2010

Ideal for couples traveling together, that need their own space. Perfect for one couple to rent only the upstairs. Centrally located on Eleuthera.

The flat roof offers privacy, We installed a shower up there if you need a little cooling off. We have chairs to take up with.Daytime views of the 2 bodies of water, outrageous night time views of the Stars!!

Relaxing - Atlantic and Caribbean views

  • 4 of 5
Sun Terrace has beautiful views from the upstairs studio apt. and from the rooftop deck. Seeing the stars at night was unbelievable.
The furnishings are attractive and comfortable,. There's lots of light and a Caribbean feel to the upstairs décor. The floor plan feels spacious and both porches are great, useful at different times of day for finding shade or sun.
We appreciated the startup supply of spices and condiments. The kitchen has everything needed for food prep and serving.
Michael, the property caretaker was very responsive to any questions we had.
Eleuthera has many beautiful beaches and the people were all very friendly and helpful. We had great weather and a wonderful time exploring the island for 2 months. Eleuthera is very peaceful and most beaches are practically deserted. The contrast between the Atlantic and Caribbean beaches is stunning.
The only major drawback to this house was the lack of Wi-Fi. These days most people use the internet to handle business and keep in touch etc. It was a big inconvenience not having Wi-Fi. The nearest internet access is at Rainbow Inn @ 2 miles away.

Owner's Response: We have the Blackberry to set up a "Hotspot" but it is a bit tricky to set up and Cotton & CoConut's front drive is another spot to pick up wifi. No phone lines to Rainbow Circle yet for the DSL line, sorry.

Amazing Views--Great home away from home!

  • 5 of 5
Top of the World Sun Terrace is truly the perfect name for this house. The 360 degree views of the Atlantic and Caribbean from the roof deck were beautiful--day, sunset, and night! Waking up on the 2nd floor and looking through the screen porch to see the sun rise over the Atlantic--amazing! This house is well-made with all modern features and is next to just one other house (which did not seem occupied while we were there). My husband and I stayed on the top floor and two of my cousins in the bottom floor. We enjoyed grilling, utilizing the beautiful indoor shower as well as the island shower, and also hanging out indoors with a cross breeze all the way through the house! You can walk to Rainbow Beach, and the house is an easy driving distance to many great things Eleuthera has to offer, such as: Fish Fry on Friday nights in Governor's Harbor (complete with food, drinks, music, dancing, and limbo!--where tons of people hang out), Alabaster beach at Cocodimama (gorgeous clear water--we saw a sting ray come close!), the Glass Window Bridge, the Rainbow Inn with great food, live music, and views of the Caribbean, a fresh produce stand just North of the Rainbow Inn (lettuce picked right from the garden, peppers, onions and sweet, delicious pineapples, as well as coconuts), fishing trips leaving from Gregory Town, and various other beaches you can find that you will have all to yourself (literally). Eleuthera's laid-back pace, it's charm and beauty was wonderful, and everyone we met was SO friendly! We also had one of the island dogs, Daisy, stop by and stay for the last day we were there, which was pretty cool. The owners were staying on the island while we were there and on our last day dropped off some home-made pineapple upside-down cake--yum! Overall this house really felt like a home away from home for us. We hope we can return to visit Eleuthera again!

Relaxing, luxury stay at the Sun Terrace

  • 5 of 5
Just returned from a wonderful week at top of the world sun terrace. The owner was very helpful with all my enquiries and questions as it was our first time in the Bahamas, and two weeks after hurricane sandy, so we were concerned, but no damage to the property. The house was perfect for the two of us, it was immaculately clean, no bugs for the whole week, lovely breezes, very well equipped, good layout and felt we were in a luxury apartment, ideal for a holiday.

Great views of the Atlantic from the lounge and bed, and of the Caribbean from the back of the property,, and all round beautiful view from the roof, easy walk to Rainbow beach which was lovely and protected from the November winds.

We would stay again and again.

What a view!

  • 5 of 5
We truly enjoyed our stay! The view from the rooftop was spectacular. The house was beautifully decorated and very clean. The location of the house is in a great spot. We were in walking distance to two great beaches! We had a great time exploring the island. Great stores in Gregory Town, good food at Rainbow Inn, Cocodamama's, and Sky Beach. We went snorkeling and saw many exciting things! The accommodations were wonderful! Can't wait to go back!.

There are several top beaches within walking distance of Sun Terrace and dozens more private and incredible throughout the Island! Hatchet Bay caves give you over a mile of exploring just 5 miles up the Queen's Highway. Current Cut is the best drift dive or snorkel event you will ever find, all it costs is the drive to the North where you can shop the giant store ,'Birchey's' near the Bluff settlement, also in the North are the water taxis to Spanish Wells and the famous Harbor Island.
