Overview

Eleuthera House Rental Photos and Description

4 bedrooms (2 are beach-front with ocean views), 2 full bathrooms; sleeps 8

Blue Palms and its own private beach are on the Atlantic side of Eleuthera in North Palmetto Point. Enjoy our NEW 12' X 24' INFINITY EDGE in-ground, beach front pool with SUN SHELF. The pool is HEATED in the winter months. Chaise lounge chairs, umbrellas and poolside dining table completes the pool patio area. 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 new shaded sunning deck/cabana overhangs the beach. From this elevated location you can possibly see rays, turtles, barracuda, dolphins and other fish swimming by. A hammock ensures relaxation, and our two- two person kayaks and snorkeling gear will enable you to catch your own lobster dinner! The house has all the amenities you need: CENTRAL AIR, 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, toaster, 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. Two ocean-front Master bedrooms have king beds and adjoining suites comprised of full bathrooms and a second bedroom, each with two single beds. The 2 master bedrooms have access to the oceanfront patio & spectacular views. 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 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. Rent one or both of our 4 wheel drive Jeep Wranglers to traverse the island and see all the beautiful sites.

Additional Information: For additional information email me and ask for our Kodak gallery of pictures which show our home, inside and out, in greater detail.

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.

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

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.

Fantastic place for a dream vacation!

  • 5 of 5

We stayed at Blue Palms over Christmas, 2015. It was fantastic!

The villa is a spacious 4 bedroom home with two bedrooms on either side of an open floorplan kitchen, dining area, and living room. It was very clean, fully equipped, and extremely comfortable for our family of 6. You could easily have 4 couples stay here. The kitchen had everything you could ask for, and there is a new large Weber gas grill that worked great.

As nice as the house is, it is the property of Blue Palms that really makes it special. There's a nice infinity-edged pool with two terraces, and a sea-side gazebo overlooking what must be on the list of the nicest beaches on earth. Every morning before sunrise I would visit the gazebo and have coffee listening to the waves, feeling the sea breeze and the warmth of the rising son, and enjoying the incredible beauty.

This island is the jem of the Bahamas, and Blue Plams is a fantastic spot from which to enjoy it!

13 days of heaven

  • 5 of 5

Blue Palms must be one of the very best villas to rent on the entire island. The house is huge, beautiful, and has every amenity you could want. Direct TV allowed us to watch the football playoffs. which we very much appreciated. The heated pool is just great. The cabana and their beach is awesome. Mercie and her husband Calvin, caretakers of Blue Palms, are wonderful people and are there when you need them. I could never stay in another villa again after visiting Blue Palms. It is so close to some upscale restaurants, beach bars, and Governor's Harbour, where you will probably do your shopping. Maria, the owner, was very helpful in planning our two week stay. Did not want to leave. Although we traveled all over the island, seeking all the other beautiful beaches, we were always to come back to Blue Palms. It is really a mini resort. Very private. The landscaping was spectacular. Hope to return next year. Thanks Maria and Jim for sharing your beautiful home with us.

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!
