About the property

9BR, 7.5 baths, - 7BR Main House w/ 2 BR Guest Cottage - Sleeps 22

Five Palms Beach House is the culmination of years of renting mediocre vacation properties, dreaming of the perfect vacation destination/house and finally planning and building it. This is our families' vacation home and no detail has been overlooked. You will find luxuries and amenities that you will find at no other property. Because again, this is our families' vacation home that our family wants to share with you. And to anyone that has rented before, you know the difference. If you want to walk out the door and snorkel and/or fish, get the best lobster pizza EVER and walk down 3 miles of beach and not see another person day after day, this is the vacation home for you. This house is meant to be enjoyed with a relaxed, laid-back interior that is both comfortable and luxurious. Our home is kid friendly and adult happy!

We've also just recently added a 7th bedroom to the main house as well as a two-bedroom guest cottage in the back for our larger groups.

Now you can stay a second week for 10% off the normal price! Note: Offer only available for one extra week! Contact us for rates for stays longer than 2 weeks.

Guestbook comments from the owner

Our family of 15 (8 adults and 7 grandchildren ages 7-13) had a spectacular vacation spending the week of Thanksgiving, 2013 at The Five Palms Beach house in Eleuthera. The home is spacious, beautifully decorated and equipped with everything you need (cards, games, movies, videos and plenty of books. We enjoyed long walks on the beautiful private beach and used the Hoby Cat, surf & boogie boards and all the beach toys. Everyone of the staff members could not have been nicer and extremely helpful even the gorgeous beach was raked and cleaned every morning.

We took advantage of the detailed guest book having fabulous & fun dinners at the local restaurants (take extra cash since many do not honor credit cards.) Beryl cooked us scrumptious meals especially her homemade cinnamon breakfast buns and a delicious fresh lobster dinner!! Beryl was also extremely helpful in planning our weeks schedule.

The older children and fathers had a fabulous scuba exhibition with Al. All of us thoroughly enjoyed our day with Flipper starting with cracking the fresh stone crabs at the pool then devouring them for lunch. Flipper then took to another beautiful private beach for snorkeling.

I could go on & on with many more reasons not to miss a trip of a lifetime staying at The Five Palms Beach House.

Many thanks to Susan Keeler and the Schmauder’ s for their continued support and help before and during our vacation!

GORGEOUS (and PERFECT) Oceanfront Vacation Home

  • 5 of 5

Five Palms Beach House is a stunning oceanfront property in Eleuthera. Located inside the sleepy town of Tarpum Bay, on its own stretch of beach (with some of the most amazing reefs), it is the type of vacation home that people DREAM about. As you round the top of the driveway, the sight of the turquoise water will take your breath away...until you see the gorgeous yellow house (which you will soon call your home).

This was our 5th stay at Five Palms. As a long time guest I can tell you that the ONLY thing that has changed here has been the height of our children and the ever growing list of amenities the house has at your disposal. Need a car=check. High chair=check. Wine fridge (stocked)=check. Gorgeous views=check. Snorkel gear, sailboat, SUPs, kayak=check. Fantastic tiki hut for those that want to be by the water but not in the sun=check. This house has it all!

The staff (Beryl, Julian, Earlene) are kind, hardworking, hilariously funny with their stories of the island, and know so much about the island. Meet them once and you are family forever. Working with the owners to arrange your stay and pickup once you are on the island is as easy as drinking the margarita you made from the fun Margarita machine in the kitchen.

Our stay this year was with 13 people--4 of which were teenage boys. Phones and iPads were put away for TEN days. TEN days people! If that isn't island magic I don't know what is. The house is superbly set up with each nook allowing for privacy while at the same time having enough space for large groups to gather and chat. The house caters to large families with enough kitchen items to feed at least 20, seating for huge groups (we easily sat 13 at the dinner table), two dishwashers, two refrigerators, two coffee pots. Every aspect of the house has been well thought out. It is a house meant to be enjoyed. It reminds me of my Italian grandmother, it takes you in, hugs you and makes you fall more in love with it every time you visit.

I read somewhere that , “home is where love resides, memories are created, friends always belong, and laughter never ends.” That is Five Palms Beach House.

PERFECT get-away for ages 4 to 73!

  • 5 of 5

Five Palms was the perfect get-away for our family, ranging in age from 4 to 73, as we laughed and played and soaked up to sun in celebration of our 50th Anniversary. The house was spotless and the staff was professional and friendly. Feeding our gang of 13 was easy in the thoroughly equipped kitchen. With the bedrooms separated by the living spaces, we were under one roof but we had our privacy too. The property is secluded but just a few minutes away from a pretty settlement with little shops and only 15 minutes away from a larger town with a big grocery store and Sammy’s - a must stop for a Bahamian meal of cracked conch or grouper. If you’re looking for an elegant, family-friendly place to stay, Five Palms is perfect in every way!

Five Palms; Eleuthera, Bahamas: The Potter Family

  • 5 of 5

This was our third trip to Five Palms with 14 of us since 2014 which includes our 6-grandkids from 6-16 years old. And we've never heard the word bored! From the breath taking views, the pool, tremendous beach with a super cabana, snorkeling equipment, boggie and paddle boards, various kayaks, Hobbie Kat sail boat, volleyball, beach chairs, great grill, etc. The kicker is the world class snorkeling opportunities!I'll tell you how much we enjoy it, we just booked again for 2018! To say Five Palms is a special place doesn't begin to describe the reality of our visit!

Great home, very family friendly!

  • 5 of 5

Our family of 12 stayed at this home for a week and we loved every minute of it. There was so much room that we had several beds we didn't even need. We spent a lot of time bouncing between the pool and the beach and loved playing with all of the beach toys. We hope to be back again to stay at Five Palms!

Absolutely perfect vacation at Five Palms

  • 5 of 5

Our family of 10 stayed at Five Palms over an April school vacation. What a wonderful house! Five Palms is perfect for families with children of all ages. The large room on the lower level, separated from the upper living room, screened porch, dining area, and kitchen was a great space for the teens and younger children. It was stocked with games, books, videos and almost anything one could ask for. The bedrooms off that space were perfect for the older ones. Susan and her family have thought of every kind of pool and beach toy including kayaks, sailboat, paddle boards, snorkeling gear, floats, etc. The lovely cheerful colors, spotlessly clean rooms, and comfortable furniture, including wonderfully comfortable beds in every bedroom helped us immediately relax when we arrived. Our delicious welcome dinner supplied by Beryl was the perfect beginning, and introduction to the island. Working with Susan to plan the trip was a pleasure. She sent us lots of information and answered all our questions promptly. We took advantage of having Beryl cook a number of meals. We so enjoyed her, and the meals she prepared. Our days were primarily spent between the beach and the pool with a break on a couple for the days for spearfishing, snorkeling lessons and a fishing trip. The house is stocked with wonderful towels, robes, dishes, and practically anything that one would need for the stay, including waffle makers, frozen drink makers, etc. We can't wait to return to Five Palms for another perfect family vacation.

Best Home on Eleuthera!

  • 5 of 5

I can't say enough about this home! Before arrival, the owner was accessible and accomodating. After arrival, the caretakers of the property were friendly, helpful and made us all feel at home and very pampered! We had several dinners at the house, which were delicious and affordable for a large group.

The home is in an ideal setting. Great snorkeling, miles of beach to yourself, and every beach toy invented. There is really no need to ever leave the house!

The interior of the house is clean and well maintained. The decor is beachy and beautiful. The kitchen has every item one would ever need. The beds were comfortable. It is apparent that a lot of thought and love went into the home.

We have stayed in four homes on Eleuthera, and this one far exceeds all of the others in location, service and unexpected "extras" that helped us create wonderful family memories!
