PAU PAU BAY BEACH ESTATE

South Palmetto Point House Rental Photos and Description

House, 5 Bedrooms, 4 Baths (Sleeps 11)

The calmest of beaches in Eleuthera are on the Caribbean side of the island. With a southwest exposure, you will experience some of the most incredible sunsets in the world. This unique location offers you over 1,500 feet of beach front to enjoy. It is nestled between two small rocky point peninsulas, creating a very calm and private atmosphere, alluring you to make this your lifetime vacation home, as it has for many others.

This completely furnished home was completely renovated in 2010/2011 and no expense has been spared.

Amenities include AC in all rooms, wifi, satellite TV, DVD player, CD player, video library, music library, washer/dryer, and three sea kayaks (two single and one tandem).

Pau Pau Bay was named many years ago, upon the discovery of the land's abundance in vegetation. Among the many fruits, there are pau pau (papayas), coconuts, and pineapples. Directly in front of the beach are the Pineapple Cays, four islands that offer a great anchorage and protection on windy days. Pau Pau Bay is home for an astonishingly diverse collection of sea creatures living in just 3 to 9 feet of water...

The town of Governors Harbour, less than 10 minutes away, has a charming collection of 19th century homes and churches overlooking its historic harbor. Buy fresh fish and lobster every afternoon from fisherman at the town dock, or visit the recently restored Haynes Library, which dates from 1897, for the weekly coffee hour for foreign residents and tourists. Governors Harbour has grocery stores, restaurants, liquor stores, two banks with ATMs, a bakery, gift shops, a dive shop, and a medical clinic. Friday Night Fish Fry in Governors Harbour, a street/beach party that brings together all the tourists and locals with food, drink, and dancing in the street, is not to be missed.

Eleuthera is famous for its 100 miles of spectacular, deserted beaches. The island, home to just 8000 residents, is completely safe any time of the day or night. Enjoy the rare experience of picking up hitch-hikers and leaving your keys in the car wherever you go. The snorkeling, diving, and fishing on the island are world class. Boating, surfing, and other water sports are also popular. You can rent power boats, sailboats, sea kayaks, bikes. You can have a charter captain take you out for excursions of various types. There is excellent sightseeing as well. Eleuthera has vast caves, cliffs, a bottomless ocean hole, many unique beaches, historic churches and 19th century homes, and small villages to explore. We hope you will enjoy Pau Pau Beach Estate, and experience all our island has to offer.

Spectacular house, great location.

  • 5 of 5
The house was as promised! Well appointed, comfortable, well equipped, clean and conveniently located. While it is private it is not 'isolated' as we had 4-5 visitors to the beach every day who accessed through an adjoining property. The amenities were as advertised and our chef, Kaynell Scavella, thought the kitchen had everything she needed. I would recommend her highly if you want a few tasty meals prepared and the cost is comparable to the expensive restaurants. The meals she prepared were the best we had in the whole ten days.
The owners were very responsive when we had an issue with the TV, sending not one but two people to make the correction. They were also excellent to work with throughout the rental process as was Matthew Simon. Matthew is a great resource for all things Eleuthera.
The kayaks were great for exploring the nearby islands and the snorkeling right at the house was as good as we needed. At low tide you can walk to the island from the point just down the beach.
The gardner started fires for us 3-4 nights and carried wood over so we could start our own. Kingsley was helpful and responsive to our needs which were few indeed.
If you are looking for a convenient location (4 miles from GH), a great house, wonderful beach and some evening fires beach side. This is it!
The only possible suggestion we have would be to have a cooler available so when you go to the beaches on the Atlantic side you can pack a lunch. We ended up buying a cheapo styrofoam one but it did not last the whole trip!
Some tips
Burrows for groceries and adult beverages.
Skip Tippy's but do eat at the Beach House, Banks Deli and Pammy's
Go to Tarpum bay for fresh fish and buy a conch salad from the street vendor.
Hangout at French Leave Beach
Bring lots of bug juice
Skip Lighthouse beach unless you have a 4 wheel drive
Go to the GH fish fry but you have to stay late to see the locals perform
Thanks to all who helped make my wife's 60th BD one she will remember.

Private Paradise!

  • 5 of 5
House is spectacular--just like in pictures. Traveled with 2 teenagers, who were thrilled with the kayaks and exploring the islands off the private beach. We wanted a secluded, private, QUIET vacation--and this fit the bill perfectly. Mr. Sands the care taker was extremely generous with his freshly picked tomatoes--in MARCH--what a treat! Definitely worth the trip to the local market for fresh veggies. He was also very helpful for us finding medical care. Snorkeling is better out near the islands, but the shallows near the beach are like a nursery for sea life--many baby fish, starfish, sand dollars, sponges, and rays. You can walk out to the first island at low tide--so fun! Like having your own giant private pool. Only saw 3 other people from the house down the beach a couple of times. Beds are comfy, and the kids appreciated the wi-fi. Make sure you wear long pants/sleeves if you plan to enjoy the beach night, the sand fleas will devour you. Easy travelling to many beaches-lots of variety on the island. Trips to looking glass bridge, Cape Eleuthera Institute, and Tippy's worth it. If you are looking for pure relaxation, reading/writing, family/couple bonding, kayaking, cooking your own meals in a nice relaxed pace, this is where you want to be. If you are looking for a Nassau type experience--this is NOT it (THANKFULLY!).

One of a kind!

  • 5 of 5
We rented Pau Pau Beach Estate for a week that we'll remember for the rest of our lives. 3 families rented - 6 adults and 5 children. The house accommodated all of us very comfortably and the setting was magnificent. From the information we were given in advance by the owners, we were well prepared for everything we needed. And Kingsley, the caretaker was always available to answer questions or fix anything very quickly. He personified what we experienced by all of the locals we met - wonderful hospitality and general kindness and love of life. After exploring the island for a week, we can truly say that this home is perfectly located - right in the middle so it is easy to get to both ends as well as a quick drive to the airport and to the great town of Governors Harbour. If you are planning to go to Eleuthera, this is the place you want to stay. We definitely plan on coming back sometime down the road. One thing to keep in mind, at least in the summer months - the no-see-ums are out in full force at night so bring bug spray and long pants and long-sleeved shirts so you can enjoy the evenings outside without getting bitten up.
Thanks for making our week such a memorable one!

Paradise found!

  • 5 of 5
Pau Pau Bay House was absolutely perfect for our family of seven. The house was immaculate, very well-decorated, and extremely well-equipped. The private beach was unbelievable and we snorkeled daily around our own private islands. The caretaker, Kingsley, was very helpful. Matthew Simon was invaluable throughout the planning of our vacation and while we were in the Bahamas. We couldn't have stayed in a nicer home!
