Overview

About the property

2 bed/2bath with option for addtional bed/bath

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 home...hair 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 night..like 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.

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!

Best Vacation Home Experience!

  • 5 of 5

Our overall experience with the homeowners was second to none. We were greeted with professional, kind, helpful owners from the very first email to the last day when we had to turn our keys back in to fly home. The rental car was prearranged and waiting for us upon our arrival with a personal note from the owners to help us find the house and get settled. Upon our arrival, we were greeted warmly and shown around. You cannot find better people to work with. The Barefoot Beach House was exactly as described in the photos and fully equipped for our two week stay. There were many personal touches which we appreciated so much. The owners were very helpful in providing information on local places to explore, eat, swim and fish. In our two weeks we made friends for life and have already penciled in our stay for next year. Thank you so much Skip and Sharon for everything!

Owner's Response: We are so glad you chose us for your anniversary vacation and are looking forward to seeing you next year! Skip enjoyed his time with you on the boating trips and dinner. Always perfect to have fresh caught fish and conch. You were the perfect 5 star guests. My (Sharon) only regret was having to go to Florida and missing out on all the fun. We have a saying...may all who enter as guests, leave as friends! We look forward to that.

The absolute best in all ways!

  • 5 of 5

This is literally my favorite spot in the world! The Barefoot Beach House is perfect in every way; island location, view, amenities, decor and cleanliness. And Sharon & Skip are the best! From helping you with your car rental to giving you helpful tips & maps to the island along with a lovely welcoming package ;) You will feel right at home and relaxed from the moment you walk in! I have been here both as a single female traveler and with someone and I have always felt safe, secure & like I have family right next door. I can't wait to go back! :)

Gorgeous view!

  • 5 of 5

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.

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.
