About the property

2 Bedrooms, 2 Bathrooms, Sleeps 4

Welcome to The Villa at Island Breeze - an ideal romantic hideaway for a peaceful island vacation. This two bedroom, two bath Bahamas beach house is located on the Atlantic side of Eleuthera near the quaint settlement of North Palmetto Point. Steps away from the front door is your own private dune deck overlooking a private white and pink sand beach. Enjoy snorkeling and swimming in the calm turquoise waters teeming with coral reefs and vibrant tropical fish. Or explore the beach for an assortment of exotic shells, sea glass, and the elusive sea beans that float over from Africa and are rumored to bring good luck to their finder. The Villa boasts a spacious back deck with a dining table and bar-b-que grill where you can spend time relaxing watching the herons, egrets, and osprey frolic in a salt water lake as the sun sets over the island.

A fully equipped kitchen awaits you along with all the comforts you would expect in your own vacation home. The Villa is fully air-conditioned with ceiling fans throughout, comfortable furniture, two full baths and an outside shower. The Master bath has an oversized shower and huge soaking tub. Both bedrooms, with king sized beds, are on the front of the house where the sound of the surf will lull you to sleep. Linens, bath and beach towels, beach chairs, shampoo and body wash are all provided.

Why Amy Zalinsky chose Bahamas

Our first visit to Eleuthera was in 1992. We fell in love with the breathtaking beauty and warm welcoming residents. We knew that Eleuthera was a very special untouched island, and we are excited to open our home to you. We wish you a visit that is filled with much love, laughter, and beautiful memories.

From our family to yours – Welcome to Eleuthera!

Warmly,

Michael and Katy Broderick

p.s. Be sure to…see a sunrise, see a sunset, see the stars at night, walk the beaches, explore, make new friends, read a good book, do absolutely nothing…return again to Eleuthera!

Wow! Island breeze villa is amazing!

  • 5 of 5

This place is amazing! I have rented houses many times and I never stayed at a nicer home. Island breeze villa is well named. You feel a breeze through out the whole house. The villa has everything you could want!Amazing comfortable bedding & towels. The kitchen has everything ( I mean everything) and great quality appliances.

The view is gorgeous from every room and you can hear the ocean in bed.

The house is meticulous & clean. The beach is gorgeous and you won't want to leave the house. They even have two phones you can use for local and long distance calls!!! That is such an unexpected amenity.

The people that live here are so friendly kind and warm.

I was so lucky to be here with a wonderful friend and a beautiful home.

You will jump for joy when you walk into the island breeze Villa! I know I did!

Fabulous

  • 5 of 5

My stay at the Island Breeze Villa was no less than fantastic. This home is stunning. It sits on the ocean and my favorite part is the ocean waves lull you to sleep. The tranquility of the setting and friendliness of the Bahamian people made the get away perfection. I would highly recommend the villa for anyone wanting a peaceful and relaxing vacation with luxury accommodations.

Wonderful Trip

  • 5 of 5

My Wife and I really love Eleuthera. Talk about Peace and Quiet, we love it here. This rental was great. We could've had better directions there but once we found the road it was pure magic. The property is beautiful. It's set atop a small cliff like area with about 25 steps down to the beach. On top of the cliff (for lack of a better word) there's a small deck with 2 chaise lounges that were perfect for relaxing, reading, or just sunning. The house has two master suites with outstanding bathrooms. The main area of the house is a wide open space that flowed into a VERY modern kitchen, and a Family Room with a nice sized TV and VERY comfy couches. The kitchen has almost everything you can think of. We do a lot of our own cooking and the quality of the stove, ovens, convention, coffee maker, microwave and that nice big Stainless steel Fridge were super nice. Lots of dishes, pans and even a dishwasher. Out the back door led to another deck that overlook a small pond/lake. There was a BBQ grill, 2 Adirondeck chairs and a table to relax for morning coffees and late afternoon drinks. There's a wrap around porch that has perfect views of the ocean especially during the early morning sunrises (the wife told me). The house is very secluded-perfect for relaxation. My wife and I are in our mid 50's and love to unwind and do as little as we want. This was perfect. Another great part about the area was the ocean breezes. At times the were strong, mostly at night. But that just cooled the house off nicely. We slept with our windows open all night. Matter of fact our windows were open all the time. There's not a lot of crime on the Island. It's super safe.

We went to several beaches. We love Lighthouse beach but the road getting there can be pretty rough. It's well worth the trip. Our other favorite is Rainbow beach and also the Pink sand beach on Harbour Island.

The only disappointing part of our vacation was the first couple of days it was a little cool and overcast. Last year when we went to Eleuthera it was during April and it was a lot warmer and the ocean/Caribbean sea were warmer.

We still had a nice, quiet, peaceful time. I would highly recommend the Villa at Island Breeze.

BTW, I'd change the directions to read that when you turn by the sand store and drive down the road where the paint store, schools, etc, drive until the road ends at a T junction, turn right.....I guess you could add the Big Banyun Tree (wouldn't apply at night).

Thanks Anne - Property Manag

Great Beach Home

  • 5 of 5

My wife and I stayed in the Villa for Island Breeze for a week in February, 2016 to celebrate our wedding anniversary. Our stay was great. This was our third stay on Eleuthera and by far the best. The Villa is located on a quite stretch of the Atlantic Ocean. Every morning we would get up, exercise on the deck over the beach and take a long beach walk. The swimming and snorkeling from the beach were fantastic. We would occasionally see another couple on the beach but this was rare. The Villa is well designed and equipped. We had everything we needed including a good wifi connection and local telephone service. The bedrooms were very large with ample storage space. The bathrooms were well appointed with a double shower head in the walk-in master bath shower. The house was well supplied with all the bath and kitchen supplies we needed. We did our grocery shopping in Governors Harbor which is 20 minutes north and at Island Farms just south of Palmetto. Excursion to the beaches at Double Bay, Ten Bay and French Leave were easy trips from the villa.

We spent a lot of our time at the Villa and the beach in front of the Villa. It was hard to leave.

Outstanding vacation home

  • 5 of 5

We rented the Villa for Island Breeze in March, 2015. The villa exceeded our expectations in every way.

The Villa is removed from any heavily travelled roads with a short stretch of sand road leading along the coast to the home. The views from the home are fantastic, as was the quality of the North Palmetto beach. Each day we walked the beach - usually not seeing anyone along the miles long coast/beach. On occasion we saw others, but never more than 5 people on the entire beach.

The home is well decorated with modern appliances, furniture, and excellent bedding/linens.

A rental car is a must, of course, given that the home is approximately 20 minutes from the Governor's Harbor Airport. An SUV is not necessary for the home, but we found it nice to have one for our excursions to the different beaches along the island.

We highly recommend a chef/cook for the vacation. We accepted the recommendation of the owners for "VB" - who was nothing less than outstanding in all ways including a wonderful personality who informed us of everything we'd ever want to know about the island in addition to being a kind, generous friend for the week.

The Villa would be appropriate for just about any group. We traveled as a couple with our daughter who was on spring break from college. There would be no issues for young children, and the beach would be ideal. Additionally, the site is well removed if not even secluded for the couple or family desirous of privacy.

The home is on the Atlantic - North Side - of Palmetto in the central section of the island. We found this ideal for excursions to both the North section (Harbor Island) as well as South section (Tarpum Bay) of the island (about 1.25 hours and 0.75 hours, respectively). The drive to Tippy's and French Leave beach is approximately 10 minutes. The Drive to Ten Bay Beach is about 5 minutes. All of these were favorites we visited during our week on the island.

The snorkeling and swimming on the beach at the house is excellent. The constant breeze and winds kept us bug-free the entire week. Basically, one chooses a beach based on one's activity for the day (walking, shells, snorkeling, swimming, family, etc…).

Gov Harbor airport is the closest. We flew Southern Air in from Nassau. This was an easy set of connections.

Wifi at the house was excellent. Thank you for the excellent sound system as well for the beach tunes. The bluetooth connection is appreciated - thanks!

Thanks for a great vaca!!!

Absolutely beautiful property!! Loved it! Can't wait to return!

  • 5 of 5

We (family of 4) stayed at the Villa at Island Breeze for 9 wonderful, relaxing, magical nights. This was our first time to the island of Eleuthera and so we weren't sure what to expect. It was a long day of travel and we were all exhausted and anxious to arrive. We flew into North Eleuthera Airport and it was a bit of a drive to get to the Villa. It was after dark when we arrived and the island roads were somewhat intimidating. As we turned onto the "one lane" sandy road to get to the villa I was thinking "oh my what have we gotten ourselves into". All of our concerns and anxieties vanished when we rounded a bend and saw the Villa. It was so beautiful and so much bigger than we were expecting, it was so inviting with all the outdoor lighting and before we even entered the house I knew we had picked the right property for our 9 days in Eleuthera. The specifics: the house is clean, tastefully decorated and has everything you could possibly need. The kitchen is extremely well appointed, we cooked many meals. The beds are very comfortable with nice, new linens. You cannot even imagine the ocean views from this house!! Stunning! From the front door your toes can literally be in the ocean in about 60 seconds! The beach right in front of the house is gorgeous. We took many long walks in both directions and saw lots of sea life. We had a couple of minor issues during our stay which were promptly addressed. The property manager was very accessible and easy to work with and it was nice to have someone on hand to answer our questions. We did not want to leave the Villa and are dreaming of when we can return. If you are looking for peace, serenity, quiet, relaxation, beautiful views in every direction then look no further. Thank you Mike and Katy for opening up your beautiful home to us. We created lasting memories and can't wait to return!
