Gregory Town Villa Rental Photos and Description
5 Bedrooms, 3 Baths, Sleeps 10

Eleuthera means freedom, and freedom doesn’t get much better than this: a spacious and beautiful waterfront home on a private silky sand beach with calm, shallow, turquoise water and a view from the front deck you have to see to believe. Seemingly afloat in the shallow, clear water, a small island named Gaulding Cay awaits your exploration and provides a great view, especially as the sun sinks into the sea at sunset.

Gaulding Cay Beach is an isolated beach with glistening white sand, surrounded by fragrant pines. The snorkeling is great, and its privacy lends a special enjoyment to swimming, boating, reading in the hammock, and sunbathing.

This newly-constructed (2009) five-bedroom house has a 50-foot deck overlooking the sea and white beaches. The spacious deck is furnished with lounge chairs for sunning and tables with umbrellas for dining.

Inside the house, the 1400 s.f. great room (including living area, dining area and kitchen) has soaring ceilings and a view of Gaulding Cay and Gaulding Cay Beach through a wall of French doors and tall windows. This open, elegant space greets you with a comfortable living area with a U-shaped couch, entertainment center with flat-screen satellite TV, and a view of the sea that never quits.

The dining area, also with views of the sea, comfortably seats 10 at the wooden table and is adjacent to a raised stone countertop with three bar stools for additional seating.

The kitchen features stunning stone counter tops, plenty of cabinet space, and all the modern amenities. Stainless steel appliances include a 5-burner gas cooktop, a wall oven, microwave, refrigerator/freezer, dishwasher, and deep country sink, to facilitate the needs of guests, chefs and staff. The kitchen is fully equipped with all the accoutrements needed to prepare your culinary delights including blender, toaster, coffee-maker, crock pot, and a selection of spices and seasonings.

Just outside the kitchen area is a charcoal cooking grill for your barbecue and grilling selections. The laundry room with washer and dryer is conveniently located adjacent to the kitchen.

The four airy bedrooms (and a lovely den that can readily serve as a fifth bedroom) are perfect for two families or five couples. The two matching master bedroom suites have beach and ocean views. Lie in bed in the morning and watch the sun sparkle on the sea, or view the stars at night from your bed. French doors open to the front deck overlooking the beach and Gaulding Cay. Wander outside for a morning cup of tea or an early swim. Step out at night and stare in awe at more stars than you have ever seen. The two master bedrooms have spacious en-suite baths. The stone-tiled bathrooms are equipped with large glass showers, pedestal sinks, and wardrobes for your clothing storage.

The two guest bedrooms have French doors opening onto private decks with ocean views. These two bedrooms share a central bathroom similar to the master baths. The beds are twins that can be converted to kings; just let us know and we’ll have them ready for you.

The fifth bedroom is a den with views of the sea and wonderful breezes blowing through the room. It is furnished with twin beds that can be converted to a king. Then den has a curtain over the doorway rather than a door.

Amenities at the Cay House include WIFI, flat-screen satellite TV, air conditioning, ceiling fans, beach chairs, beach towels, and a sea kayak.

We also rent boats on the island, and have a good selection of boats for you to choose from, including sailboats, power boats, and canoes. Just let us know what you need and we’ll give you a price. The sea in front of the Cay House is typically calm and ideal for boating.

The Cay House is located just two miles from the picturesque fishing village of Gregory Town. Gregory Town is home to the best gift shop on the island, featuring handmade art and crafts from around the Bahamas. Gregory Town is also the home of Thompson’s bakery, famous for its pineapple tarts and coconut tarts made fresh every day from home-grown fruit. Groceries and gas are available in town. Nearby restaurants and night spots include The Cove, newly renovated and featuring continental cuisine with Caribbean flair and an infinity edge pool. The Laughing Lizard is a gourmet sandwich shop and art gallery. The Rainbow Inn is famous for its steaks and fresh vegetables from its organic garden. It offers live entertainment several nights a week, and is frequented by the island’s favorite musical celebrity. Also nearby is Daddy Joe’s, a local bar and night spot just down the road. A 15-minute drive takes you to The Bluff, which has the biggest supermarket on the island. A 20-minute drive plus a short water-taxi ride takes you to Harbour Island, with its many restaurants, shops, and straw market. Governor’s Harbor, half an hour away, has numerous beach restaurants.

Eleuthera is famous for its 100 miles of spectacular, deserted beaches. The island, home to just 8,000 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 the Cay House, and experience all our island has to offer.

My family (4 kids, and my wife and I) stayed here for 5 days in March and it was glorious! The backyard is perfect, white sandy beach with crystal clear water and the little island to keep the kids busy for hours. The house was clean, nicely sized and in a perfect location, about half way to everything in either direction. We went to Harbor Island Twice, Surfers Beach, Governor's Harbor, etc. Very much recommended.

We had an absolutely amazing time at the Cay House. The Island of Eleuthera has the most spectacular ocean scenery I have ever seen. I don't even think things I have seen on TV can compare. The people of the island are as equally wonderful. They are so warm and friendly. Everyone waves or honks to one another. The Cay House is located on one of the most spectacular beaches you can possible imagine with a small cay in front of the house about 100 or so feet off the beach. You can walk to it the water is so shallow. You won't find a more picturesque place anywhere on the island. To be able to stay there each day was amazing and breathtaking each time we woke up. The house was very well equipped and had everything we needed. Each room is in it's own corner of the house offering privacy for each of them. I would definitely go back. If you're looking for peace and quiet on one of the most spectacular beaches you have ever seen, this is truly it.

Our family of four stayed at Cay house for a week with friends and their kids. We couldn't have been happier. The grounds are clean and well-kept and the location is stunning and private. Our kids played on the little rocky island in front of the house and were able to wade out to it and swim around it. Watching them explore and learn to surf a bit (thank you for use of the little boards under the house!) in such a safe environment was very relaxing for the adults. We snorkeled and caught lobster for lunch and used the boat we rented through the owners to get to different points along the coast. We have been coming to Eleuthera for 20 years and this was our favorite trip for many reasons. The house was a perfect base camp situated between the northern and southern parts of the island. We visited Spanish Wells and Preacher's Cave and spent a day in Governor's Harbour at Tippy's. We enjoyed the delicious food and intimate setting of the Front Porch overlooking Hatchet Bay and loved our meal at Rainbow Inn. Matthew, Skip and Jackie were responsive and helpful throughout! Thank you again!

Great place to get away from the beaten path. There were plenty of places to take day trips on Eleuthera but the best activity was snorkeling right in the back yard. We went to Harbor Island once, Governers Harbor 2x and picked up bread and fish at the local stores and docks. All places felt like the 'real' Bahamas.

All the bedrooms were far apart from each other which was great for sleeping.

Jackie was super helpful.

We (family of 5; kids 10, 11 and 13) stayed at the Cay House over Thanksgiving and it was a fabulous vacation. This is a great house on a very private and beautiful beach. The house had everything we needed and the kitchen was nicely done. We did see a few people walking and snorkeling (boats anchored nearby), but for the most part we had the entire area to ourselves. The water was clear and warm enough for us to explore freely. We snorkeled, walked to the tiny island immediately offshore, walked a sandbar around to the next tiny bay, kayaked and fished. It's remote, but nicely situated to drive north for the ferry to Harbour Island or south to meet a fishing guide.

The owners helped us tremendously and telephoned us several times during our stay to make sure we didn't need anything. If you haven't been to Eleuthera before, it is very much a diamond in the rough. The main highway is paved, but take a turn off that road down a road much less travelled, and the vista opens up to the most incredible beach. The grocery stores are pretty minimal, but we found several fantastic restaurants. The people are very friendly and helpful. It's a terrific getaway.
