Overview

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.

Great family get-away

  • 5 of 5

This is a very comfortable house- it had everything we needed for our extended family and then some! Central A/C, backup generator, blender! The 3 kayaks were in good order and were perfect for paddling on the calm Caribbean side waters. We were able to paddle along the coast and out to the nearby cays to fish and snorkel. We caught our fish for dinner every night! Then we cooked with the patio grill or smoked the fish on the outdoor fire pit on the beach. The water is warm and calm enough on this beach for the 6 year old in our party to safely enjoy snorkeling too. Indoor and outdoor speakers were appreciated. We usually like to explore other beaches during our stay- but we never felt like leaving this place! Great views from inside too!

Simply Beautiful and Serene

  • 5 of 5

We found Pau Pau Bay Estate to be simply Beautiful and serene! This was our first time in Eleuthera. We booked Pau Pau to celebrate a late Christmas in a location away from the cold snowy winters of the Mid-west and the east coast. Our first sighting and impression of the Estate was more than we expected. The estate is secluded on a private beach of crystal clear water. The house was immaculate and spacious! There was more than enough room for the 8 of us. We will definitely return to stay here again. The next time, however, we will order our groceries and have them delivered. We can always run out for additional items if needed. The Harbor Town grocery store was a bit pricey. The grocery store that offers to deliver, is also the best priced and offers a larger selection. They also have fresh meats. When flying in to stay here fly into Governors Airport if possible - it is the closest. We all had the best time here, and really recommend it to everyone! The Caretakers are extremely nice and helpful as well! Thank you Pau Pau Bay for one of the most beautiful, relaxing and memorable vacations, - The Gurdaks and The Walshes

Paradise!!

  • 5 of 5

We had a party of 10 (8 adults and 2 teens) and this house was perfect for us. Working with both Matt Simon and the owners of the house provided excellent customer service! They answered all my questions and any issue at the house was promptly attended to by Kingsly the caretaker. The house has everything you need....beach towels, kayaks, spacious rooms, fully stocked kitchen, great indoor/outdoor stereo system, wifi that works anywhere in the house and on the beach. This house is tucked away and has complete privacy...the view in unmatched. We will definitely come back to this rental. We used Brenda & Patrick Demeritte as cooks for the week....awesome couple that can help you with anything you need on vacation at a reasonable price. Missing this little slice of paradise already!

Great, Safe, Fun Vacation home

  • 5 of 5

We are a family of 10 (grandparents, parents and kids) who enjoyed our week in the sun at the Pau Pau Bay Beach Estate. If you are looking for a house with lots of amenities (practically private beach), kayaks, an ice machine for those rum-runners, beautiful grounds, a gas grill, and two beautiful decks (one with an outdoor shower!), then this is the house for you. There are beach chairs, stunning kayaking and snorkeling, and the house has everything you need for a week- or more- of enjoyment. Our kids were in and out of the house all the time- we always felt safe (bring water shoes- nature is all over!) letting them roam the yard and beach. Any questions are quickly answered by the manager/owners, and having Mr. Kingsley as caretaker was a bonus- he answered all of our on-island questions. Eleuthra is a safe place to bring kids and there are way more things to do than we were able to in just a week. Bring lots of bug-repellant (no-seeums are part of beach life) and sunscreen. We followed lots of recommendations given by the relator, and Mr. Kingsley (he found us a carry out pizza place for dinner- great for kids) as they are quite helpful. Plenty of room in the house to enjoy a great vacation. Check out the Edwin's Turtle Preserve, the organic farm (just down the main road to the right), and order BBQ dinner carry out from J's Jerk Pit (literally a house on the left side of the road, just after you leave the driveway). Try Eleuthra- have adventures in the Queen's baths and snorkel with Fishbone Tours. Staying in this house allows for a week of just basking on the beach AND hiking, snorkeling, and enjoying the restaurants (Tippy;s and the Buccaneer Club are a must) and lovely people of Eleuthra. The house has all the amenities you need- book now- you won't be disappointed.

Lovely location

  • 5 of 5

Our Christmas stay at Pau Pau Bay Beach Estates was a wonderful reprieve from the Canadian winter. The house itself was beautiful and just as pictured. The road into the house is rough and narrow and was a little tricky to find in the dark but Kingsley was there to meet us. The location on the beach was great - very private. We enjoyed the fires on the beach. The sand fleas were very fond of some of us so visitors need to have bug spray and cover up in morning and evening. We did an Adventure tour with Captain Bubba at Fishbone Tours that was excellent. We had one disappointment and that was our Christmas Eve meal. We had booked Kaynell Scavella as recommended by one guest and when she arrived over 2 hours late with cold food that we didn't think warranted $40 per person ( macaroni and cheese and cupcakes) it really ruined our Christmas Eve. Other than that it was a lovely stay one your beautiful island.

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.
