Guestbook comments from the owner

We just received this email from our guests on the day of their arrival...so happy they are enjoying our home:



"What an amazing spot!!! House is simply perfect and exactly what our family needed!!! It's taking us a little bit to adjust to "perfect" temperature of air and water...something we have never experienced.



John is great and while cell phone communication was spotty, all worked out perfectly. We will be sure to take great care of the place and our only issue will be having to leave and head north to the frozen tundra. NOW I understand why folks head south for the winter. You folks are very lucky to have such a gem.



Going for the afternoon dip, then slow barbeque wings, another tall margarita etc. and all is well in the world.



Thanks for everything."

Perfect Location! Beautiful Home!

  • 5 of 5

Our family of four (two sons ages 10 and 12) absolutely loved staying at Coconut Point. The weather was perfect. Never too hot or cold. We loved that the house was off the beaten path, but at the same time we were close to grocery stores and restaurants. The house is extremely comfortable and very beautiful. The view from the house and the beach right in front of the house is breathtaking. We usually had the beach all to ourselves. John the caretaker was always available if we needed anything. Because of the central location of Coconut Point on Eleuthera, we were able to explore to the south and to the north very easily in our rental car and so we were able to enjoy many different beaches and towns around Eleuthera. We have traveled in Belize and Costa Rica and have stayed in beautiful places- Coconut Point is right up at the top of the list!

Perfect Island Getwaway

  • 5 of 5

This was our first trip to Eleuthera. I was with my wife and two boys (10,15). The home was exactly what we were looking for and matched the description perfectly. The property is newer for the area, clean and very well maintained. We had great responsiveness from John and no issues whatsoever.

We spend 7 nights on the island. Four of the days we spent on the beach in front of the house kayaking and snorkeling. The house was really comfortable with lots of space and good internet. The other two days we got out (Governor's Harbor area and Harbour Island). We had dinner at Tippy's, 1648 and the Friday night fish fry in Governor's Harbor, all were very good. Due to multiple trips to the grocery store, liquor store and restaurants, I would highly recommend renting a car. We rented from the caretaker for the week and it was very easy.

I would recommend this property to a friend or family. We are considering returning next year.

Lovely Place to Stay

  • 4 of 5

Coconut Point is in a nice, quiet location. We enjoyed walking Double Bay Beach, and found lots of sea glass and shells. Actually, this was one of the better shelling beaches that we visited while in Eleuthera. It was also cleaner than many of the other shorelines.

The house interior is tasteful, not over the top. The kitchen is well-supplied, and met our needs just fine.

You will find LOTS of bath towels. I personally loved the master bedspread. It would go perfectly in MY bedroom, and was just the right thickness.

The owner was responsive to our needs, and acted promptly when we learned that there was a problem with getting wifi.

The addition of a satellite dish and flat screen tv would have given this home a 5, rather than 4. With this being an election year, and the fact that my husband is a news junkie, we felt out of touch with the world. Yes, that can be both good and bad. The weather in Eleuthera was very rainy, so we spent more time in the house than we expected. Being able to watch the news would have been great. We did enjoy several of the movies that were in the home. We also read 3 of the home's books.

You won't be disappointed staying at Coconut Beach.

Owner's Response: We are so glad you were able to enjoy Coconut Point and all its amenities in spite of the rainy weather! Perhaps if the weather had been better you may not have missed the news. We do offer excellent wifi so that our guests can check on the news and weather (and tide charts!) occasionally. However, we have purposely chosen not to have satellite or cable TV, preferring to keep Coconut Point as a "getaway" from the real world....if only for a few days a year :-).

Loved Coconut Point

  • 5 of 5

This was our first stay in Eleuthera and we are so happy we chose Coconut Point! My husband and I absolutely loved it. The house is more beautiful than the photos. The kitchen is well equipped. The furnishings are lovely and the views are fabulous. I had a hard time deciding if I wanted to view the beach from the deck, the thatched "hut", or just my bedroom window. And then there's the screened-in porch with the comfy lounge bed--perfect for an afternoon nap or reading a book. We were there during the off season and truly had the beach to ourselves. The beach is perfect and was great for early morning walks as well as swimming. The owners were very easy to work with and provided a lot of advance information that was very helpful. Truly a beautiful home. Hope to go back some day!

Another wonderful vacation at Coconut Point

  • 5 of 5

We have stayed at Coconut Point several times and have always been very pleased with our stay. Over the years we have come with different extended family members, but this trip was just my husband, 4-year old daughter and not quite 2-year old son. The house is perfect for a small family or multiple family units; plenty of space to spread out, but cozy enough to gather and enjoy time together. My children loved the bunk bed room and my husband and I enjoyed waking up to the sunrise.

The beach is perfect in front of Coconut Point. Nice reefs to explore and plenty of options to walk to for swimming holes. The covered deck makes for nice outside time, but plenty of shade when needed.

The kitchen has always been well-stocked...plenty of items needed for cooking-in all of our meals. The house is in a great location so it is easy and not too far of a drive to get supplies.

The caretaker John is a lovely face to see and has always provided good conversation. He is so good about checking-in to make sure your stay is going well.

The owners, Karen and Drew, are fabulous to work with. You can tell they built their home with love and admiration for the island...optimizing on the incredible view from inside and outside the house.

We have stayed at Coconut Point many times over the years and will continue to do so. There are many beautiful homes in Eleuthera to rent, but we are quite content with our choice of Coconut Point!

Paradise!!

  • 5 of 5

We had an absolutely wonderful week at Coconut Point. The house was beautiful and well kept, and the setting was stunning. A perfect mid-winter getaway. We hated to leave, and have hopes of returning again someday soon.

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!
