The Barefoot Beach House is one of the nicest guest house offered in South Palmetto Point...just south of Governor's Harbour in Eleuthera. The whole house has 3bed & 3 kitchens but can be rented as a smaller unit if needed. Step out the door to a beautiful crystal clear turquoise beach. We have a rowboat that can double as a sailboat, a canoe and kayaks for your use. Inside the tropically decorated home you will have all the luxuries of home...hair dryer,cable,DVD/VCR,CD player,wireless internet,games,iron & water toys. Fully eqipped kitchens and 8' wrap around patio with patio furniture and gas grills. Relax in the hammock under the palm trees, catch a bonefish right off the beach, explore the many beaches on the island, take day trips to the north & south and do some island exploring or just relax on the sandy beach and soak up some sun. Come back and enjoy the oversized shower with room for 2 or sit out on the patio and enjoy the stars that sparkle like diamonds in the sky.
Easy commute to local attractions: Located about the middle of the island it makes it great for day trips to the north and south. We offer a book with directions to all the beaches and attractions...explore at your leisure. There are several stores and restaurants located within a 5-7 mile radius. You might not want to leave the property as we are located on a sandy beach and have a boat that can double as a sailboat, a canoe and kayaks for your use. Enjoy relaxing in the swaying hammock under the palm trees, work on your tan on the beach or explore the island and find hidden beaches. With our unique location we have sunrises to the east over a point of land and sunsets over the Pineapple Cays which are right off shore. You will have breathtaking views of the stars at night..like diamonds in the sky. You will find The Barefoot Beach House relaxing, squeaky clean and comfortable.

Our motto is: Enter as a guest, leave as a friend. Once you have visited Eleuthera you will not want to go home. With our repeat guests we know that you will want to come back again and again.
If you have to contact home...: We have wireless internet available at the Beach House. (The owners also have a computer available to check emails as well as a phone that can make calls world wide.)
We stayed in Sharon and Skip's rental home for a week. Upon arrival, we were immediately greeted by Sharon who was a fabulous host. The house was immaculate as were the grounds. Everything we needed was provided. Sharon had an information book ready for our use which was extremely helpful. The views from this place were out of this world!!! I would definitely recommend the Barefoot beach house for anyone coming to Eleuthera.
My husband, adult nephew and I stayed a week in the Mermaid/Seashell Combo. It was the perfect size for us. The house was equipped with everything we needed and the mid island location was ideal for us to explore north and south. Sharon and Skip were welcoming and they live next door so they are accessible at any time. The beach was beautiful, calm and private. It was great for swimming and snorkeling around the little cays. I highly recommend staying at Barefoot Beach House and visiting Eleuthera.
My husband & I stayed here for 5 days, it was very clean, it has everything you might need to have a enjoyable vacation, and to top it off it's in a perfect location on the caribbean ocean side where you can see clearly to the bottom and enjoy the ocean just steps outside the door! The owner is very kind, and helpful, they can answer any questions you might have in regard to the island. You can get in a car, and drive South or North a little way's to see some additional beaches besides the one right out side your door (but you could stay there the entire time and love it all the same) or go all the way to the North or South end of the island from this vacation spot and be at either end in a short amount ot time.
This Web page doesn't show all the reviews left by guest, but TRUST ME... In each of the 3 rooms they have guest books that are filled with A+ reviews, rating this place with a high "10"!!! There was NOT even one bad review in the entire book that was in the room we stayed "The Mermaid" at "The barefoot Beachouse".
We didn't get to meet Sharon, but we did meet and talked to Skip while we were there, and he was a wonderful host!
Just a couple tips, I suggest is to bring meat, vegetables, and anything else that you might like to eat while your there other then fish which you can get at Governor's Harbour dock daily around 3pm to 4pm. You can get some great tasting fresh fish and you can also get a lot of conch at a reasonable price compared going out to dinner at any of the restaurant's on the island. I'd also say bring any spices, BBQ sauce, butter, and other condiments you use while cooking...packages of tuna fish for lunches, and lunch meat I'd suggest as well. The grocery stores are very limited to what you can purchase once your there. The airlines do allow coolers, we went over with one as a carry on, with no problems at all.
A bigger cooler may have to be checked in if it doesn't fit in the over-head area... but that's not a problem either.
This vacation rental has kayaks, glass bottom canoe, a double Kayak, a little sail boat, rafts, noodles, masks & snorkels, lounge charis on the beach, pretty much everything you might want other then fins for snorkeling.
Don't be fooled by some of the vacation rentals listed on differant web pages, this place is what it states and more... We saw a couple others that we were checking into before we found this place while we were there and they are NOT all what they advertise at all.
"We stayed at The Barefoot Beach House for a month in Feb 2010. While the house has 3 bedrooms, there are actually 3 units which can be combined or rented separately. We rented Mermaid Villa which is the front unit facing the beach. In 4 years of vacationing in Eleuthera, this villa was the nicest, cleanest and best equipped that we have ever seen on the island (and we've seen dozens!). The owners, Skip and Sharon live just next door and attend to you every need. The units come equipped with beach chairs, snorkels, fins, coolers - several toys for youngsters so everything needed to make life at the beach great. There are many good eateries within a short drive and the owners will even arrange for you car rental if asked. The location is very convenient to everything.You can fly fish for "bone fish" right out front of the villa and the lovely sandy beach is gradual sloping and very safe for all ages. We love Eleuthera for it's quiet, laid back appeal and the Barefoot Beach House was a "10" and highly recommended. We'll be back!
Located in South Palmetto Point in Eleuthera, Bahamas. We are about midway on the island so it is ideal for day trips to the north or south. Several stores and restaurants within a 5-7 mile drive. The Barefoot Beach House is right on a nice sandy beach.
Other Activities: Venture out to explore the island...beautiful unspoiled beaches, hidden caves, sea cliffs and stars at night.
