About the property

The Barefoot Beach House is one of the nicest guest house offered in South Palmetto Point...just south of Governor's Harbour in Eleuthera. This is offered as a 2 bed/2bath. See Home Away 4279742 for an additional bedroom and bath if you need 3bed/3baths. 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 dryer, iron, cable TV, WI FI ,games & water toys. Fully equipped kitchen 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 diamonds in the sky. You will find The Barefoot Beach House relaxing, squeaky clean and comfortable.

Please leave all your worries at home. We expect you to relax...we even provide you with a complimentary BOTTLE OF LOCAL RUM! 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.)

Above and Beyond our Expectations

  • 5 of 5

We loved every minute we spent at the Barefoot Beach House. Sharon and Skip were amazing hosts. It gave me a lot of peace of mind,while traveling with my two teenage daughters, that they were close by. They were always available to help with suggestions on our daily exploring of the island. The information book that Sharon put together for guests was extremely helpful. And the house....... Perfection. There is literally everything you will need in the kitchen. The beds were very comfortable and we really appreciated the large shower in the front unit. We used the shaded front porch area every day. We were the only ones ever on the beach and the water was clear and a great temperature. The first night we were there we immediately got in the water and there were countless sand dollars and starfish. -Please leave them in the ocean. They are alive!- The water was so calm and peaceful that we stayed out there to watch the sunset. There was not one negative about and I would highly recommend a trip to Eleuthera and The Barefoot Beach House.

You know how good it feels when you arrive at a rental and it is far better than you could have hoped for?! This is such a property. The beach was right in front of us and the house is probably in one of the best Eleuthera locations you could vacation at. The view of the small islands in front of the house with a sunrise over a dock and sunset beyond an island is magnificent. We were able to go kayaking (multiple kayaks available), snorkeling (with supplies at the house to use) and Skip took us out on their boat. The house was immaculately clean and hosts very friendly and informative. We had an overall great great Bahama vacation and a lot had to do about the house we rented. We plan to book this rental again.

The perfect place to stay on the island!

  • 5 of 5

We were a family of 5-7 people traveling to Eleuthera for the first time. The Barefoot beach house was perfect for us. The house sitts on a beautiful beach. We had kayaks at our disposal, and Skip was nice enough to take us out on a boat ride to se the surrounding area.

The house was beautiful, clean and neat.

Our ten day get away was a dream.

Plan to return in two years time.

Relaxing Home on the Beach

  • 4 of 5

Clean, well kept and cozy. Sharon was very helpful throughout our stay. The island is friendly with too many beautiful beaches to visit in one short week. Fishbone Adventure Tour and BBQ ribs on Tuesday night at Joe's in James Cistern were great. Next time we're leaving the kids at home!

Car: recommended

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.
