About the property

4 bedrooms/ NEW! 3 bathrooms, INFINITY EDGE heated pool

Blue Palms is directly on the beach on the Atlantic side of Eleuthera in North Palmetto Point. Our 4 bedroom home has 2 NEW ENSUITE BATHROOMS for your comfort and privacy.


#1 - MASTER BEDROOM w/ NEW ENSUITE bathroom, king size bed, both bedroom and bathroom have gorgeous ocean views

#2 - MASTER BEDROOM w/ shared bath, king size bed, gorgeous ocean views

#3 - BEDROOM with 2 twin size beds NEW w/ NEW ENSUITE bathroom/ garden views

#4 - BEDROOM with shared bath, 2 twin size beds, garden views

Also NEW are two separate, shaded Bahama-style porches. The front porch very private and well away from the road. It is surrounded by lush, tropical flowers which, attract hummingbirds and has 4 comfortable rocking chairs.

The back (ocean side) porch allows panoramic views of the beautiful, aqua ocean waters and is outfitted with dining furniture and new Pottery Barn lounge seating. Either porch is ideal for morning coffee or evening cocktails, for finding the sunny spot or cool shade depending to the time of day.

Enjoy our 12' X 24' INFINITY EDGE in-ground, beach front pool with large SUN SHELF. The pool is HEATED to 85 degrees in the winter months. Chaise lounge chairs, umbrellas and poolside dining table complete the pool patio area. A lighted, paved walkway leads to the beachfront shaded cabana and the beach. The pink sand beach is 50 yards from the house and is over 2 plus miles long, great for walking, shelling, and collecting "sea glass" and other beach treasures. The warm, turquoise ocean has numerous coral reefs just a few feet offshore - perfect for snorkeling! A shaded bamboo sunning deck/cabana overhangs the beach. From this elevated location we have seen rays, turtles, barracudas, dolphins and other fish swimming by. A hammock ensures relaxation, and our two- two person kayaks will enable you to explore the numerous reefs just offshore. The house has all the amenities you need: a newly installed generator connected to whole house CENTRAL AIR conditioner, a flat screen TV and satellite cable, a Weber gas grill, purified in-sink drinking water, a fully equipped kitchen (with microwave, coffeemaker, ice maker, blender and ice crusher) and all the comforts of home: hair dryers, linens, towels, DVDs, books, games and 4 beach chairs, beach coolers & beach umbrellas.

All bedrooms have room cooling ceiling fans. Shower outside "en plein air" under our two separate but private, bamboo enclosed structures, both having wonderful views of the sky, ocean and varied tropical plants and palms trees. Enjoy a quiet and private spot to relax on our new Bahamian style front porch with wooden rocking chairs and natural accent tables. View the lush landscaping featuring an varied assortment of native, colorful tropical plants.

Also, this property is one single home with the pool for the rentals guests only. There is no sharing of the pool with other guests. Neither the caretaker nor the owner are present on the property during your stay.

** Both new bathrooms are easy access with a "no-curb" shower entrance.

Amazing Vacation Spot.

  • 5 of 5

We stayed at Blue Palms from June 1 -8, 2008 and could not have had a nicer, more comfortable place to stay for our Eleuthera vacation. The house is very well appointed and designed. Tastefully decorated and supplied. It is steps from the best snorkeling that we found on Eleuthera. There are infinite coral heads to explore teeming with live coral and fish. We saw turtles, rays, many reef fish and even a nurse shark. Mercy, the caretaker, is a gem of a lady. She took care of anything we asked. Just to spend time in conversation with her is worth a visit.

Our party of 6 was very comfortable at Blue Palms and its location on the center of the island makes it a perfect base for island exploration.

While there, be sure to get a burger at the Country Cafe just up the road in N. Palmetto Point and some conch fritters and cracked conch at the Sunset Inn in Gov. Harbour.

Owner's Response: We are delighted that our home rated your "rave reviews". We try hard to maintain our home and property, and deliver to our guests an experience that they find enjoyable. "Blue Palms" is our home, not just a rental property and we work to make it better and better. We think the addition of the new inground swimming pool is a great asset. Also,we agree with you, Mercy, our caretaker is a gem! Jim and Maria

Beautiful Oceanfront Home

  • 5 of 5

We have stayed in the Bahamas many times and this is by far the most beautiful, well equipped home we've ever had the opportunity to visit. The house is beautifully decorated and has every luxury of home. The owners have everything well organized and finding things you need is very easy. The pool was heated and the perfect size with plenty of lounge chairs and outside places to relax. The beach is a bit rocky right in front of the house but just to the left of the house the beach turns sandy and is probably the most secluded beautiful beach we've ever seen. We felt like we were staying at a five star resort with the comforts of home. This home is perfect for a romantic getaway, a family get away or a fun couples getaway. The owners and caretaker were wonderful and always available to help with any questions we had. Can't wait to go back!!

Amazing Vacation, Beautiful House!

  • 5 of 5

We just returned from a week's stay at Blue Palms and our only complaint is that it wasn't longer! Our group of 7 (my husband and I, our two young children - 4 and almost 2, and three grandparents) had the absolute best time. The house is large and comfortable and well appointed. The pool is absolutely wonderful - our kids had the best time splashing on the sun shelf and the grown ups enjoyed floating around all afternoon. We visited several beaches on the island and Blue Palms' beach is as gorgeous as any of them. On calm days we did some snorkeling just offshore, and my husband caught several fish (some of which we grilled up for lunch)! The house is also centrally located to nearby restaurants and Governors Harbour. It was nice to not have to cook every meal! We all woke up this morning missing our beautiful view and we really hope to one day return to Eleuthera, and especially to Blue Palms. It is a special place. Thanks to the owners, and to the caretaker, Mercy, for a fabulous vacation!

Private relaxing vacation!

  • 5 of 5

The house is maintained very well and well equipped. Maria is wonderful to work with and very accommodating. Mercy the care taker is helpful and knowledgeable. The view and privacy of the home is truly amazing. The beaches on the island are gorgeous and deserted! Don't go to Eleuthera if you like resorts, casinos and nightlife. Go if you like privacy, nature and relaxing!

Amazing Property

  • 5 of 5

We spent a week (2 couples) at Blue Palms and it was like living the life of a celebrity. Blue Palms is a property that has it all- a house that has all quality amenities ( out of the 7 houses we have rented on Eleuthera it is the only one that all the windows and doors worked properly and the screens were secure and hole free), an infinity pool that seems to blend into the ocean, and grounds that are designed and maintained to the highest standards. Oh, and it is right on a breathtaking pink sand beach. Loved it!

Absolutely Perfect

  • 5 of 5

We are going to keep it simple. If you are looking for a house to rent on the beach, with a pool and very private, this is the house for you. We have been to Eleuthera three times and this is our favorite home. Absolutely perfect!! The caretakers, Merci & Calvin, were a joy. Maria, the owner, was very helpful and prompt with every aspect of the transaction. Thank you Maria for sharing your home. We will be going back to Blue Palms.

Nearest Beach
1 Miles
Ten Bay, Paw-Paw Beach, French Leave,
Car: recommended

Blue Palms is located on a secluded 2+ mile beach on the Atlantic side of North Palmetto Point, Eleuthera. There are many reefs right off the beach, which provide spectacular snorkeling and fishing. You may see one or two other people on the beach, but maybe not! In addition to our beach, there are numerous other easily accessible Carribean and Atlantic beaches within minutes of the house. The town of Governor's Harbour is about 10 minutes away, which offers the basics (food and gas), some night life, restaurants, and limited shopping.

Other Activities: too many to mention, most of a relaxing and escape-from-it-all nature!
