Best place to stay on Eleuthera

  • 5 of 5

We had a great stay at Coconut point. This was our 4th trip to Eleuthera and we have stayed at a different place each time. This was by far the best. The views and access to the ocean were incredible. In the past we have gone to different beaches each day, but at Coconut Point we found ourselves just wanting to stay here and enjoy the great beach right out the back door. The house was immaculate inside and very comfortable. It was way more space than the two of us needed, but it was very nice to have the room and the deck over looking the ocean.

The access from Queens highway was great and the roads to the house were very good and smooth

The pictures do not do the place justice, pictures just can't capture the feel and views of Coconut Point. The owners were very easy to work with and very helpful.

We will definitely stay at Coconut Point again when we com back to Elauthera

Owner's Response: Thank you Les. Our story is similar to yours. Before we built Coconut Point, we stayed at different homes on the island and went to different beaches each day. We too found that we love Double Bay more than any other location. Our family loves being just steps away from the incredible beach where we can swim, snorkel, spearfish, soak up the sun, search for shells and sea glass, walk Double Bay, and so much more :-). And some days we just find ourselves lounging on the deck and enjoying the beautiful view! Thanks again for choosing Coconut Point for your stay. We are very happy that you enjoyed our home and look forward to welcoming you again in a couple of years.

A great house on a great island

  • 5 of 5

We had an awesome stay at Coconut Point. This was our 12th trip to Eleuthera, and this was one of the best houses we have had in all of our trips there. The house is conveniently located to Palmetto Point and Governors Harbor, with plenty of options for beaches, groceries and restaurants. It was a good staging point for folks that like to see all that Eleuthera has to offer. It offers a good chance to travel south or north to see the score of beautiful beaches on the island, including your own beach in your "back yard", which includes a beautiful stretch of Double Bay beach. The house is well maintained and equipped and the caretaker, John Gibson, could not have been nicer or more helpful. I highly recommend this house to any and all who come to our favorite place in the world.

Pictures don't do justice....the house is nicer in person than the pictures

  • 5 of 5

I celebrated my 40th birthday here with 7 of my friends. The house was perfect, beach-equipped, spacious and nicer than what the pictures indicated. It's a gorgeous, quiet and serene spot for a relaxing beach vacation. The reefs were easily accessible at the bottom of the house and we even swam out to the island across from the house one day.

Only real issues we had were only having internet the first day and not the rest of the week. And, not having any extra toilet paper other than the 2 rolls in the bathroom and no paper towels, so we had to make a trip to the store for these essentials. The kitchen is well equipped so we had a lot of meals at the house which was nice and fun cooking with everyone at the house.

There really wasn't any reason for us to leave the house unless we wanted to see other parts of the island. We did a day trip to Spanish Wells in hopes of seeing the swimming pigs but apparently they are seasonal so we weren't able to see any this time around. And went day-tripping a few times to the Caribbean side to experience some of the calmer, crystal clear waters. We rented 2 cars from Stanton and he was very nice and super accommodating we seemed to see him or his family everywhere.

Thanks for letting us stay at your home Karen! We hope to come back again and already miss not waking up to the sound of waves crashing on the beach.

Owner's Response: I am so glad you had a great stay and celebration!! Spending time at Coconut Point with friends and family is the best :-). We hope you will come back again soon! Please accept my apologies for the house not being equipped with toilet paper. There should be plenty of it stocked in the house and our guests should never have to buy any. I have spoken to my caretaker about this.

Awesome house

  • 5 of 5

Loved the house. Great location, central to island. Linens were nice and plentiful. Kitchen was well equipped. Stove broke and was repaired later the same day. Bedrooms were as pictured. View from living room at sunrise was beautiful. Beach was terrific. We only saw 4 people on 2 days on the beach. There were coolers and chairs for beach trekking. Snorkel stuff, but we bring our own. Island out back was kayakable. Had a wonderful dinner made by a chef for the royals, Anise, arranged by the John the caretaker. John was quick to respond to any needs or questions. No cable, so bring movies if you have young kids. The only thing the place needs is a full length mirror. Highly recommended for two couples with kids or large family. You will not regret your rental.

Pictures as not as they seem

  • 5 of 5

I like to give full reviews - so here goes!

This house was an absolute joy! I hate to say it but the this house needs a professional to take the photos for the VRBO ad, because this house was sooooooo much nicer than the pictures perceive. The master over looks the ocean, and the master shower was HUGE! Dark detailed interior wood work on the ceiling, fantastic bar and kitchen. The beach is just under your house deck with beautiful views. Fantastic! If the Atlantic side is a little ruff, roll down the main road 2 miles and hit the opposite side of the island for calmer waters. They rotate wave action throughout the year.

Negatives - Bring toilet paper LOL!!!

The cleaning crew needs to be a little more precise to cleaning detail(Easy fix)

Internet...Had to unplug it a couple of times but fired right back up each time. (very simple)

Rear bushes a little too tall to see over when sitting on the deck. (Another easy fix)

The sun with all it's glory shines in the back window telling you to rise and shine. I liked it, but the wife likes to sleep in. Window pull curtain shades would do it good. We used two towels and it worked just fine :-)

My Suggestions on what to bring other than what is supplied?

The TV runs only DVD's so bring a few of your favorites.(The house had many DVD's already)

Pay the airlines $25 for and extra suitcase to take on your plane flight, and bring 49lbs of snacks and dry foods. The food on the island is expensive (not the houses fault :-)

Pack frozen meat (yes it is allowed) in cooler as your carry on for the plane. The house has a great gas grill on the back deck and many pot/pans to use. Did I say the grocery stores are expensive yet? LOL!

Would I stay in it again? ABSOLUTELY YES!

This place is a rock star in my book!

We are looking at our next trip and pray this house is available!

Worth the money - The time - The memories :-)

Owner's Response: Thanks for taking the time to share your thoughts on Coconut Point! We are happy you enjoyed your stay in our home and look forward to welcoming you back anytime. P.S. - The house should (and typically is) always be stocked with toilet paper, so we will make sure we address this with the caretaker and cleaning lady. Thanks for letting us know.

Pink Sand Paradise

  • 5 of 5

We had the best time, ever! (Again) This was our third visit to Coconut Point and we couldn't have had a more enjoyable time! The house is warm and comfortable, the views are amazing and the time we spent together with minimal distractions was priceless. It was nice to be there in June with a wonderful breeze off of the ocean, it kept the bugs to a minimum. We enjoyed sitting on the deck for breakfasts and lunches, even a Kalik in the afternoon after kayaking, spear fishing, and snorkeling! We had a couple of really nice dinners at the French Leave and Tippy's. The only rotten thing about Coconut Point? We had to leave!!

Coconut Point is located on Double Bay, a gorgeous 3-mile stretch of pink sand beach, on Eleuthera. Eleuthera is a small island in the Bahamas that is located due east of New Providence (Nassau). At 100

miles long and a mere two miles wide, Eleuthera effortlessly keeps travelers near its secluded pink-

and white-sand beaches. Together with Harbour Island, Eleuthera charms travelers with colonial

villages and pineapple plantations.

The Out Island of Eleuthera is known for its gorgeous beaches and friendly people. Out Islands are the

most remote in the Bahamas archipelago of islands. But please don't confuse being secluded with

being sleepy. The Out Islands are home to some of the world's most stunning beaches, dive sites, and

fishing sites. So you can be as relaxed or as active as the day allows. Come stay at Coconut Point and

experience paradise!
