Casuarina Bay is an exceptionally beautiful, secluded eco-friendly Sea to Sea estate on the island of Eleuthera, in the Bahamas.
Just two properties share this very private bay on the Atlantic, skirted by miles of pink sand beaches.
Easily accessible, Casuarina Bay is just 1 hour by air from Miami, and only seven miles from Governors Harbour airport. It's located 1.5 miles northeast of the lovely village of Governors Harbour, one of the oldest settlements in the Bahamas.
The house was designed to take in the extraordinary views and off-shore breezes of the Atlantic Ocean from every room as well as the virgin land and spectacular sunsets to the west.
It nestles amidst picturesque groves of Coconut Palms, Papaya, Sea Grape, Sea Apple and Casuarina trees. The fragrant frangipani waft their intoxicating aroma while the hibiscus bloom fresh flowers each morning.
The property is also blessed with other exotic plants such as ponciana, sour orange, surinam cherry, guinep, soursop, sapodilla and passion fruit.
Ocean-lovers will find some of the best snorkeling, scuba diving and swimming in the world. Underwater visibility is up to 100 feet, with water temperatures ranging between 70 and 80 degrees Fahrenheit.
It's hard to find a more beautiful sea anywhere in the world. Sit back and delight in the changing colours of the sea and sky. Or jump in and watch the magic below the surface.
There's a barrier reef just offshore so Casuarina Bay Beachfront House has protected waters and no rip currents. It's excellent swimming for all ages.

The adventurous traveler can explore nearby islands and virgin coral reefs, swim with dolphins or exotic tropical fish, or charter boats for world-class bone or deep-sea fishing.
Other sports available on the island include sailing, kayaking, paddle boarding, darts, pool, spearfishing, tennis and surfing.
The rustic Beachfront House was designed and built to savor the incredible natural unspoiled beauty of Eleuthera. It's only 20 yards from its own pink-sand beach, so wherever you are in the house you have breathtaking views in all directions. To the east you see the turquoise ocean and glistening beach. Looking to the west your eyes rest on untouched green hills and colourful Caribbean sunsets. At night the brilliance of the stars and moon are unforgettable.

Guestbook comments from the manager
Casuarina Bay offers a true glimpse of the "real" Bahamas. A perfect setting for our family get away. There is a television, but it was refreshing to see my 3 boys opting to be OUTSIDE (day and evenings) on the perfect beach doing what kids don't do enough of these days. It's always difficult to pull ourselves away from Eleuthera.
