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.

Excellent Vacation Property!!!

  • 5 of 5

We had an amazing time at the Barefoot Beach House! The house is very clean and well supplied with towels, kitchen ware, etc. The owners anticipated all the things that you may possibly need. The grounds were beautiful and we really enjoyed the volley ball net, kayaks and especially the peaceful beach. The location of the house is central making it easy to travel to any part of the island. The house was just as it was described on the website. The owners were excellent hosts. They gave us our privacy and were always available to help with anything we needed. They always had great suggestions on beaches to visit, places to eat, etc. We were a party of 6 with 2 adults and 4 kids ranging in age between 11-16. They all loved their time on the island. We rented the whole house and the kids enjoyed having their private spaces but still being adjoined to us. Eleuthera is a magical place and we would not hesitate to rent this house again or visit the island. The Saphire Blue Hole was my kids favorite spot to visit on the island. Thanks Sharon & Skip for memories that will last a lifetime!

Great Location and Wonderful Hosts !

  • 5 of 5

We just finished 11 days at the Barefoot Beach House and it was a great place to spend time ! It is directly on a beautiful beach and the kayaks were a big perk. Skip and Sharon were fabulous hosts and do a very good job of being available but not intrusive (there home is next door). We used the beach chairs during our travels to other sites and really enjoyed Double Bay and French Leave beaches. We also spent several afternoons at Unique Resort's beach (they allowed us to use the pool with lunch). We recommend Pascal's at Sky Beach for the same experience (pool with drinks or lunch as well as beach access).

We would absolutely stay at this house again and are already planning our return to Eleuthera. Thanks again for a great time !

A piece of heaven on earth!!

  • 5 of 5

We have used VRBO to rent homes all over the world and the barefoot beach house was by far our favorite! Skip and Sharon's attention to detail was unmatched! They provided us a local perspective of the island and destinations to visit. Lets start with the house, it was immaculate and perfect for our family of 4. There were several amenities including beach chairs, coolers, kayaks, and sand toys. The location of the home was perfect for an adventure north or south. There is a beautiful sandy beach right out front with snorkeling and BONE FISH! Even a couple of fly fishermen from Utah could catch bone fish until their arms were tired! Our kids even caught them! There are 3 small cays/islands in front of the house, perfect for a picnic with the kayaks. It was like discovering our own private island :) the snorkeling out there was also amazing, snapper, lobster, grouper, needle fish, bonita, and barracuda! If you are thinking about a visit to Eleuthera this is the place to stay! Thank you Skip and Sharon!

Great location

We had a great time and enjoyed the quiet surroundings . The kayaks were a plus and the grill came in handy for dinner. This house was centrally located and made our daily explorations an easy drive. We would definitely stay here again . Thanks again for the Rum we thoroughly enjoyed it!

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.
