Wow

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I had a wonderful time at Coconut Point! John Gibson, the caretaker, is a lovely person and does a great job ensuring the property is well-maintained. Once you walk up the steps and through the front door, you are greeted by sweeping views of the ocean. It is stunning, and the pictures do not do it justice. I highly recommend waking up early at least once to watch the sunrise. It is a pretty amazing view from the deck. This was our 3rd visit to Eleuthera, but our first time to visit Double Bay. We have visited multiple beaches on the island, but I think Double Bay is now our favorite. There are far fewer rock/reefs than at other beaches which makes swimming easier (don't have to watch your toes!). There was also significantly less trash brought up onto the beach from the ocean compared to other beaches (don't know why). The outdoor shower has hot water which is a really nice upgrade (that Atlantic breeze can be chilly after an evening swim). Kayaking (there are 2) was a fun activity that I enjoyed much more being able to wear a life jacket (there are several in different sizes). Though there is no cable, the internet was suprisingly fast and reliable. There were also plenty of DVD's to watch in the evening. The house is beautiful and very clean. The housekeeper did an impressive job of getting out any sand from previous renters. The towels and bedding were of nice quality and made for a very comfortable stay. The central AC worked well, and we were never hot inside the house. The kitchen is more than adequately stocked. I cannot imagine anyone not having an amazing stay at Coconut Point! Thank you for sharing your gorgeous home!

Owner's Response: Thank you Stephanie. We are thrilled you enjoyed your vacation at Coconut Point! John, our caretaker, and Beulah, our housekeeper, do their best to keep our guests happy. We all continually strive to make sure staying at Coconut Point is a positive experience for our guests :-). Oh, and I agree with you about waking up early to watch the sunrise. It's one of my favorite things! The sunset from the front porch is pretty awesome too. I hope you will consider returning as our guest at some point in the future! Thanks again.

Perfection!

  • 5 of 5

This was our second stay in Coconut Point - its the perfect beach house! Great layout and furnishings and the views are amazing. House is elevated and right on Double Bay looking out over the sea. Even the view out front is awesome especially at sunset - you are looking across the vista with tons of palm trees.

Coconut Point is in a great location - central to the island. Not far from Tippy's restaurant, Baccus deli or Governor's Harbor where we recommend The Buccaneer for some good food and drinks!

Karen, the owner and John, the caretaker are both so nice and easy to work with. We absolutely love Eleuthera and staying in such a wonderful house makes it even better!

Great accommodations for our family of 4

  • 5 of 5

Coconut point had everything we needed for our week stay. Karen (owner) and John (caretaker) were easily and quickly available to answer any questions. We lucked out with the Atlantic calm for a few days. We snorkeled behind the house, ate great meals at a few local restaurants, and bought fresh items at Island Farm, including marinara and pesto sauce and fresh bread for pasta at home a few nights. We had a lot of adventures and coconut point was the perfect location for us. Thank you for sharing your home.

Owner's Response: Thank you Laurie. We are happy to share our home and are glad you and your family enjoyed your visit :-). Our family also loves to snorkel behind the house. We think it is one of the best spots on the island (and we have ventured all over the island)! And the Island Farm is definitely an asset to have close by. We usually catch our own fish for dinner and then get our fresh veggies and bread from the Island Farm to go with it. We hope you will be back for more adventures soon!

Beautiful location!

We had a group of 8 and found the house to be well stocked and comfortable! The view from the home is beautiful and we took day trips to other beaches, Queen’s Baths and Ocean Hole! Great vacation home!

April 2018 Visit

  • 4 of 5

Lovely location; steady Atlantic coast winds, excellent snorkeling reefs just a few/several yards off shore, and a complete lack of crowds. The property's kayaks (2) were repeatedly used by all (at the close breakers and to visit both offshore cays). The house was in good condition with more than adequate space for our family of four; no major shortcomings. Only criticisms would be the need for black-out curtains in the master bedroom and area rugs to reduce noise. The caretaker, Gibson, was helpful with recommendations (Paul Petty for fishing charters and both 1648 and Sunset Inn for dining). We'd certainly consider returning on our next visit.

Car: recommended

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!
