Med Point is a ROMANTIC, SECLUDED ONE-BEDROOM OCEANFRONT BEACHHOUSE, located on Casuarina Beach and just 100' from French Leave Beach. No other properies are between it and world-famous 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 has a huge 1100 SF 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 house was NEWLY RENOVATED in 2009 by Governors Harbour's premier designer, with wood floors, Brazilian cherry doors, and white wainscot accents .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 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.
The various gardens have coconut and royal palms, hibiscus and oleander and sea lettuce. 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.
The house is decorated 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.
French Leave Beach, which you can step onto, is the most famous 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. Once you've stepped out and dried off, walk a mile to the Beach House Bar, on the beach, and enjoy a cappuccino.
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'.
