ROMANTIC AND SECLUDED OCEANFRONT BEACH HOUSE, STEP ONTO CLUB MED BEACH

Governor's Harbour House Rental Photos and Description

1 Bedroom , 1 Bath (Sleeps 2)

Med Point is a ROMANTIC, SECLUDED ONE-BEDROOM OCEANFRONT BEACHHOUSE, located on Casuarina Beach and just 100' from Club Med (French Leave) Beach. No other properies are between it and world-famous Club Med (French Leave) Beach. It is a short stroll to Twin Coves Beach and its superb snorkeling reef, where the movie 'Three' was filmed. Med Point Beach House is like a lighthouse guarding the north end of Club Med Beach, which is the loveliest and safest beach in Eleuthera. In addition, we are only a 1 mile stroll to the centre of town.

Med Point beach house has a huge 1100 square foot teak wrap-around deck facing the beach and ocean, and all the modern conveniences, with a full kitchen, living room with dining area, wifi and large sliding glass doors on both sides facing the ocean to maximize your viewing pleasure. It has a KING BED, plus 2 day beds in the living room.

The 1 storey house was NEWLY RENOVATED in 2009 by Governors Harbour's premier designer, with wood floors, Brazilian cherry doors, and white wainscot accents. The king wooden platform bed and sofas/daybeds were specially created for Med Point, which has a blue and white theme. Comforts include 400 thread-count sheets and Thomas by Rosenthal china. Step outside the glass doors, and you will see ocean spreading away as far as you can see. (Description cont'd at bottom of ad)

Further Details: There are miles of deserted beaches on both sides, with the famous pink sand French Leave Beach (also known as Club Med Beach, for the Club Med that used to be there) next door. If you love the ocean, this place is it, because you will see, smell, and hear the ocean 24 hours a day. Because we are on a point, you can walk the 1 mile to the town of Governor's Harbour, along a sandy road through French Leave Beach.

The drive to Med Point, takes you for about half a mile, on a sandy lane through Club Med Beach, looking out to sea and giant cacti and palms. You will enjoy this splendid view of nature every day, as you go into town.

The famous bar/restaurant Tippy's is close, and there are upscale restaurants such as Sky Beach Club and the Beachhouse, (the latter only 15 minute walk down the beach), as well as charming takeouts in Governor's Harbour.

Med Point is also close to Tear Coat Cay, a small island offshore, where you can snorkel; also close to lots of reefs for other snorkeling. The water is gin clear, 100 feet of visibility, and we have seen parrot fish, groupers, rays and other exotic fish. The water is 75 to 88 degrees fahrenheit.

French Leave (Club Med) Beach stretches southward for 1 mile: we are at the northern edge. Casuarina Beach, stretches north of us for another mile, and then Twin Cove beach stretches north for another mile or so. All of this can be walked along wide sandy pink beaches with excellent shelling. Or you can jog along the sandy path that is Old Banks Road and have wide vistas of white surf.

The various gardens have coconut and royal palms, hibiscus and oleander and sea lettuce. We have a gardener, Emanuel, who attends to the plants and the beach. Walk off one stairway on the deck and you will stand on a gorgeous coral garden and see the nearby blowhole that spouts 30 feet in the air. Walk off the other steps past hibiscus and palms and geckos onto Casuarina Bay Beach. Turtles nest at night on our beach. Sunbathe on beach loungers and follow the sun around, through the day, on two wide decks.

The house is decorated modernly, in blue and white with great attention to feng shui. Two walls of the house are glass, so that you are bathing in views of blue ocean and surf. There are two huge daybeds/couches for lounging, and a rocking chair to plan for retirement. The kitchen is new, and comfortably supplied, for cooking as you stare at the ocean. At night, go out on the deck and get a fabulously clear view of the stars. You will hear the ocean all day and night.

French Leave Beach, which you can step onto, is the most famous and romantic beach in Eleuthera. It is very wide, and the water is shallow for several feet, and 25 feet out is terrific snorkelling. Body surfing is fun on windy days in shallow water. Or you can just frolic. Once you've stepped out and dried off, walk a mile to the Beach House Bar, on the beach, and enjoy a cappuccino.

Most people who walk by Med Point, express regret that they are staying elsewhere! They tell us that they would like to spend their next holiday at Med Point.

Christine, the caretaker, can make a caribbean meal and banana bread, and bring coconut water on request.

When I first saw this place, it reminded me of the beach house featured in the Julia Roberts movie 'Sleeping With the Enemy'.

Romantic, cocooned, glass front beach house, allows you to live simply by the sea.

Exceptional Property. Prime Location. Great Find!

  • 5 of 5
While seeking privacy, location and amenities for our Bahamas vacation experience, I found Med Point in Governors Harbour. We are delighted with our choice. Everything was seamless and easy. From reserving the property, to having the caretaker create a magical meal for us upon arrival.

The location is central to the island, and is surrounded by miles of secluded sand beach with turquoise water and crashing waves. Med Point is beautifully appointed, clean and well cared for. We felt at home immediately. Simply drop your suitcase and head to the water.

Loved it. We will be back!

Perfect for our honeymoon!

  • 5 of 5
We chose Med Point because the other travelers' reviews were terrific, and they were spot on. We looked at a LOT of properties on the Homeaway and VRBO sites, and ultimately chose Med Point because it seemed to have the best location and beach access, and we DEFINITELY made the right decision. If you want seclusion, beautiful views and a beach literally outside your doorstep, Med Point is the best option.
A rental vehicle is a must (ideally a jeep or CRV), as the house is a 5 minute drive from Governor's Harbor, some of which is on rough terrain. Make no mistake though - the drive to the house is breathtaking. I kept having to slow down so I could stare and marvel at the beautiful beach that ended up being 'next door.'
We drove into town several times a day, either to grab some coffee & breakfast at Da Perk, pick up snacks and water for the house, or to sit on Cupid's Cay for a viewing of the sunset. Tippy's also became a favorite spot, with a great selection of beers and top-notch food, not to mention a fun, relaxing vibe.
The house itself is exactly as described - very open, bright and clean. It has everything you need in terms of amenities, and with the sliding glass doors open on the east and north side, the breeze was incredible. For those few times when we needed a break from the sun & sand, we enjoyed lounging on the couches reading a book, or stargazing at night on the deck to the sound of the ocean.
We had a chance to meet the owners, who were staying in Alfred House (just across the lane); they were so friendly and welcoming, and it's obvious they love and take pride in this property. When we come back to Eleuthera (not IF), we will stay at Med Point again. Next time we will probably opt for some more adventure (boat rental, snorkeling, trip to Harbor Island) but for our honeymoon we had the perfect time enjoying French Leave & Twin Coves beach (on the ocean side) and Cocodimama beach on the seaside, making friends with other travelers and locals, and generally enjoying life on 'island time.'

slice of paradise

  • 5 of 5
this cottage was exactly what I was looking for. matt hit it right on. we felt like we owned this paradise. it was the first time we did such a private vacation & it was the best. we would have stayed an extra week if it wasn't booked already. the bed & pillows were very comfortable & the cottage decorated beach chic & clean. snorkeling was great right near the house & the privacy was wonderful. we rented a soft top jeep which was nice having. we walked to da perk coffee shop in town which is good & bought fish & lobster at GH. we found burrows grocery & liquor store a bit nicer than eleuthera grocery. ate numerous meals at tippy's which has great food & sat night, they have a great band. Wednesday night was a fun band. if you love coffee, bring your own. nothing but folgers & Maxwell house at stores unless you go to pineapple fields, near tippys & buy their coffee. we sure miss the sound of the ocean that is constant at the cottage. the sunrise is beautiful there. the weather & water temp were perfect. the owner supplied a lot of information which was very helpful. we can't wait to go back again for a longer stay. matt was so helpful with the planning of the trip.

Loved Our Stay

  • 5 of 5
My wife and I had a wonderful stay at Med Point and hope to return next year. This was our 3rd visit to this area of Eleuthera, but our first at Med Point. The house is charming with a well equipped kitchen and comfortable king size bed; the sliding glass doors offered panoramic ocean views and the front deck was very private in spite of the proximity of Alfred House. From Med Point the beautiful pink sand beaches stretch out in both directions, its a great walk to the restaurants at BeachHouse, Tippey's and Sky Beach Club, and only a half hour walk into Governor's Harbour where Da Perk is a great little coffee shop. We walked everywhere, no real need for a car.

The Owner and staff of Eleuthera Vacation Rentals were very friendly and helpful and helped make our vacation so relaxing. Hopefully next time the internet will be working so we can check our emails.

Unforgettable!

  • 5 of 5
Beautiful place! Exactly as described. Went to Med Point as part of our honeymoon and it was exactly what we wanted. It is the perfect beach cottage!
My only thing that I did not like was the bugs -- but that's not something that can be controlled, nor is the owner's fault.
Look out for no-see-ums! They're so small they come through the screen and eat you alive at night, but you can go see Dr. Bacchus to get a shot for it so they won't bother you. Had I known that early in the vacation, I would have definitely done that. Also, just close up the windows in the late afternoon and you should be ok. I don't know if they're seasonal or not...
Eleuthera is a great island with such nice people!
We didn't want to leave at all! Who knows, we may be back... :)

Most Magical Honeymoon Imaginable!

  • 5 of 5
We had the most fantastic time at Med Point and in Eleuthera! The house was very clean and nicely decorated. It was the perfect size for the two of us on our honeymoon! The pictures look just like what it looks like in person - if anything, the pictures do not do this place justice. Eleuthera has the most beautiful beaches either my husband or I have ever seen. The beach right outside of the house is gorgeous and great for snorkeling, and the Club Med beach is a very short walk. We only saw 3-4 people on the beaches near the house during our entire week's stay at Med Point.

Governor's Harbor is by far the best part of the island to stay on with a cute town and extremely friendly people a short drive from the Med Point house. It is worth exploring other parts of the island, though as there are many great restaraunts and beaches outside of governor's harbor.

You definiltey need to rent a car, specifically an SUV, while in Eleuthera since there is no public transportation (although we did see some taxis at the airport). There are no big car rental companies on the island, so organize your car rental plans before you get to Eleuthera. Also, make sure that you get clear directions to Med Point and have a specific plan to get the key to the house! I was so wrapped up in our wedding planning that I forgot to work out these logistics! No worries, though becuase there is ALWAYS someone around that is willing to help. The people in Eleuthera are the nicest people that we have met on any vacation we have ever gone on.

We plan to come back to Eleuthera soon!!!! I most highly recommend Med Point for a romantic getaway for two!
