About the property

House, 2 Bedrooms, 2 Baths, (Sleeps 5), Oceanfront

Casa Amarillo is a private oceanfront house on the family island of Eleuthera, Bahamas. Eleuthera greets its visitors with pink sand, crystal clear waters, and very little traffic. The island is 120 miles long, and offers lots of places to explore, and the locals are very friendly. This is a one of a kind place.

Casa Amarillo comes fully equipped for all of your basic needs. Special features include a back deck with lounge chairs, a waterfront palapas, air-conditioning, satellite TV and wireless internet. Just bring your own computer.* (Note: the entire island has some phone/internet problems, so no guarantees on their use.) . We have a washer and dryer for renters' use upstairs in the separate laundry room. All linens are provided, and the kitchen has all basic appliances including a microwave & coffee pot. For dining we offer a breakfast bar and a round dining table with 4 chairs.

The front of the property has many fruit trees, that are loaded with papaya, avocado & mango during their peak seasons.

The house is located along the coral rock that extends around the corner from the coveted pink sands of Ten Bay beach. The house shares a secluded 3 acre lot with Casa Amarillo (our families other property, both available for rent), offering privacy for guests and a cove that offers visitors an easy access to crystal clear waters. The island offers great fishing, snorkeling, diving trips, kayaking and boating. You can find tour guides easily on Eleuthera!

The Governors Harbour library offers book exchanges and WiFi/internet packages as well.

Eleuthera offers water taxi access to both Harbour Island and/or Spanish Wells. Traveling North to get to either island, you will pass over the Looking Glass bridge. A must stop for great photos of the cliffs and the joining of the Atlantic Ocean and the Caribbean Sea. The house is conveniently located in the middle (the elbow) of the island which makes it convenient for exploring both ends of this 100 mile island. Each community offers unique restaurants and shopping. The Southern end of the island has Tarpum Bay (fresh seafood from the docks), Rock Sound (Blue Hole and nice shopping center), Cape Eleuthera and the pristine Lighthouse Beach (4-wheel drive or a tour guide is recommended for this one) at the southern tip of Eleuthera.

Directions to the house: Travel on Queens Highway, travel 14 miles south of Governor's Harbour airport; roughly 4 miles south of Palmetto Point. After your pass a small sub-station with transformers enclosed in a chain-link fence (on you right), the road to Ten Bay development will be on your right (about 1.5 or less miles). On right, look for sign that has property owners listed. Follow that road for about 1 mile until the road forks at a light pole. Take the left hand fork, up the hill. The property will be on the right at the top of the hill, it has a low stone wall on both sides of the drive way. Just take the driveway until it forks & then take the right hand fork. This will take you to Casa Amarillo.

Rental cars are highly recommended as the closest grocery & restaurants are 4-5 miles away, and the larger selection of stores & other towns are 10+ miles.

The island of Eleuthera offers 3 airports. Governors Harbor (GHB) is in the center of the island and only about a 20 minute drive to our home. We ask that you try to fly into this airport so that our caretaker can meet you upon your arrival and escort you to the house. The other 2 airports are Rock Sound Airport (RSD) at the Southend of the island, and North Eleuthera Airport (ELH) at the North End. Both are about 1 hour away from the house. All 3 airports have some strange schedules, so be sure to look at available flights when you are deciding on what days to book the rental home. Some people have to switch days of the rental to accommodate the flight schedules…we’re totally used to it.

Looking for an extended family-reunion type of vacation? Consider renting Playa de Papaya and Casa Amarillo (#147029) together. They are on adjacent lots, each with a 120 foot ocean frontage. The cost for either property is the same, base rate of $1100/week per house. For $2200 you get two houses with a total of four bedrooms, four bathrooms, and accommodates up to 10 people.

If you want peace, beauty, and relaxation, Eleuthera has it all!

Great quiet cottage in Central Eleuthera

  • 4 of 5

We really enjoyed our stay in Casa Amarillo. The house was simple, clean and comfortable, with a fully stocked kitchen, movies and board games to enjoy the evenings. Even though there isn't access to a beach directly in front, Ten Bay beach is a really short drive away, and the water front accessed from the house is quiet and affords a beautiful view. Water shoes would be perfect to walk over the small span of rocks and swim in the quiet bay.

We only lacked soap and ran out of toilet paper, but Mr. Pinder was easy to contact and very helpful in arranging arrivals, a car rental and anything required for the house.

A family vacation rental you will never forget!!!

  • 5 of 5

This is an awesome house!!! We stayed at Casa Amarillo for a week over the summer. You have seclusion; a beautiful ocean view; and you are just a walkway from the water. Imagine just walking down to the water to snorkel whenever you want. You never know what you will find next!!! It is always an adventure!!! The house had plenty of space for our family of 5, and has everything you need for a great vacation. Casa Amarillo is also located so that you can check out many restaurants, shops, sites and beautiful beaches within a short drive in either direction on the Island of Eleuthera. Don't miss out on a vacation of a lifetime!!! :)
