BAHAMAS CASTAWAY - TROPICAL PARADISE ON BEAUTIFUL DOUBLE BAY

Double Bay House Rental Photos and Description

House, 3 Bedrooms + Den, 2 Baths, (Sleeps 10)

Bahamas Castaway on Double Bay is centrally located on the island of Eleuthera in the Bahamas. Bahamas Castaway welcomes you to an incredible tropical destination, a place where you can relax, unwind and get away from it all. You are just steps away from swimming in the turquoise blue water and snorkeling among the beautiful coral gardens filled with tropical marine life. Bahamas Castaway, with 200 feet of pink sand beachfront, sits on 1.5 acres of lush tropical landscaping overlooking the georgous views of Double Bay and its cays. Paradise awaits in this quiet and peaceful private setting.

Castaway is a spacious tropical island home that has all the amenities one would need. The main living area - kitchen, dining, living room - has an open airy plan with high ceilings, paddle fans and 2 large sliding glass doors that open to the roomy multi-level deck overlooking the many blue shades of the Atlantic. Any cook will feel right at home with all the cooking necessities including a cooking island with a Jenn-Aire stove and a side-by-side refrigerator with ice and water. And of course a blender.

The home has 2 master bedrooms, 1 king and 1 queen, and a third bedroom that has 2 sets of bunk beds. The den has a queen sofa sleeper. With accommodations for up to 10, this home is ideally

suited for several families or larger groups.

Bahamas Castaway features a large wrap-around mulit-level deck that captures the unforgettable ocean views. With plenty of seating and lounge chairs this deck is great for dining, entertaining and BBQing. If you can pull yourself up off the deck you are but just a few steps away from swimming, snorkeling, kayaking and taking long easy strols on the pink sand beachs of Double Bay.

Eleuthera is one the Out Islands of the Bahamas. If you are looking for crowded beaches, large resorts and hotels, casinos and nightclubs, then Eleuthera is not for you. What you will find is peace, quiet, solitude, and the friendliest people around. You come to Eleuthera to breath, relax, escape, live, and play.

Bahamas Castaway has wireless internet.

Guestbook comments from the owner
We've been fortunate to travel to Eleuthera on several occasions, and have stayed at Castaway 4 times. We think it is a perfect spot. You can't do better. Our family considers this our second home. We have traveled to other islands in the Bahamas and keep coming back to Castaway. The only reason we haven't stayed there on every trip is because it was already booked by someone else. We have 2 kids. We've stayed in the house with another family of 3 kids as well as with just our family. All great experiences. The back bunk room is big enough to sleep 4 kids comfortably and 6 kids comfortably if 2 of the kids are younger/smaller. So many things what makes Castaway special and set it apart. Here are a few: -Proximity to a great beach -Site on a hill, giving it a great view and the breeze keeps bugs away (Yes, unfortunately just about everywhere on Eleuthera has no see ums and mosquitos) -AC, enabling you to close up if there is no wind and stay away from bugs -Incredibly big deck with outdoor shower. Great for lounging, reading, lunching, sorting shells, etc. -Huge open kitchen, dining living room for evening entertainment -Separate back room with 2nd TV where kids can convene -Great location in central Eleuthera, close enough for easy access to Governor's Harbour, Ten Bay, Tarpum Bay and even Rock Sound is not too bad. Although, you don't really need to go anywhere. -Kayaks are awesome But most of all you will find the owner and caretaker incredibly accommodating. From the big things (like making sure there is always water... yes, this can be a problem at some houses) to the little things (ensuring the house always has laundry, shampoo, soap, and other necessities), all make for a great stay.

We ten ladies stayed at Bahamas Castaway, and it was the best vacation ever. The home, beach, and all the amenities are everything they say they are, and more. The island itself is so peaceful and quite. It is like a world all its own. We plan to return again, whereas nothing else we have ever done could compare to this home and island... Thank You for sharing your home with us. We will never forget it.... Fondly, The 10 Ladies

Lovely house just by the beach on the Atlantic side

  • 4 of 5
Arriving at Eleuthera was a great experience itself - just a small house which welcomed us. the House keeper John had arranged with a car, which was waiting for us outside the small airport.
It took us about 1,5 hour to drive to the house which is situated about 15-20 min drive from Governors harbor. You def. need a car to get there.
The house was situated up on the top of the beach, so no worries for the waves to hit the house. Beautiful beach with a few houses.
The house itself had very comfortable beds, had pretty much everything you needed to cook. The only con was that the wifi wasn't stable, with all the power cuts that's seems to be going on in Eleuthera. Even though they don't last very long.
The house provided us with towels, bed linen, snorkel equipment, canoes (even though it was to choppy for us to go out with small children).
Ten bay beach is situated on the other side of the highway and was just the best! So many beautiful beaches on the island - breathtaking!
I highly recommend this island if you need some peace, and why not stay at Bahamas Castaway at the same time!

If you are looking for a remote quiet spot with good accommodation then Bahamas Castaway is the place for you. The accommodation was well equipped, clean and spacious. Shopping facilities are few as one would expect on an island but you will not starve!

Spectacular place - a caribbean dream.

  • 5 of 5
The listing description was quite accurate, but if anything the property is even more breathtaking in real life. The house is clean and spacious and has anything you might need. It offers awesome views of palms, pristine beaches, and endless ocean. The customer service was friendly and efficient. I would recommend this place to anybody looking for peace and quiet away from all hustle and bustle. The 20 or so steps down to the beach might be a challenge for elderly people, or someone who has trouble getting around, but other than that we would love to go back. Going out to the nearby islands on the kayaks was a lot of fun. We did some sightseeing on Eleuthera, but at the end I think I preferred the beach right by the house - there was always a nice breeze and the view was stunning. Most stores closed earlier than expected (in particular the fresh produce stand in Palmetto which closes at noon, and the souvenir shops), by 4 or 5pm. We really liked Tippy's restaurant in Governor's Harbor, and the Rainbow Inn further north. The only thing we did not enjoy were the mosquitoes - but they won't spoil that trip for me!
