Check out the video of Bahamas Castaway at the end of the photos.

Bahamas Castaway on Double Bay is centrally located on the island of Eleuthera in the Bahamas. Bahamas Castaway welcomes you to an incredible tropical destination, a place where you can relax, unwind and get away from it all. You are just steps away from swimming in the turquoise blue water and snorkeling among the beautiful coral gardens filled with tropical marine life. Bahamas Castaway, with 200 feet of pink sand beachfront, sits on 1.5 acres of lush tropical landscaping overlooking the georgous views of Double Bay and its cays. Paradise awaits in this quiet and peaceful private setting.

Castaway is a spacious tropical island home that has all the amenities one would need. The main living area - kitchen, dining, living room - has an open airy plan with high ceilings, paddle fans and 2 large sliding glass doors that open to the roomy multi-level deck overlooking the many blue shades of the Atlantic. Any cook will feel right at home with all the cooking necessities including a cooking island and a side-by-side refrigerator with ice and water. And of course a blender.

The home has 2 master bedrooms, 1 king and 1 queen, and a third bedroom that has 2 sets of bunk beds. The den has a queen sofa sleeper. With accommodations for up to 10, this home is ideally suited for several families or larger groups. So close to the beach you can hear the waves at night!

Bahamas Castaway features a large wrap-around mulit-level deck that captures the unforgettable ocean views. With plenty of seating and lounge chairs this deck is great for dining, entertaining and outdoor living. If you can pull yourself up off the deck you are but just a few steps away from swimming, snorkeling, kayaking and taking long easy strols on the pink sand beachs of Double Bay.

Eleuthera is one the Out Islands of the Bahamas. If you are looking for crowded beaches, large resorts and hotels, casinos and nightclubs, then Eleuthera is not for you. What you will find is peace, quiet, solitude, and the friendliest people around. You come to Eleuthera to breath, relax, escape, live, and play.

Bahamas Castaway has wireless internet.

Guestbook comments from the owner

We've been fortunate to travel to Eleuthera on several occasions, and have stayed at Castaway 4 times. We think it is a perfect spot. You can't do better. Our family considers this our second home. We have traveled to other islands in the Bahamas and keep coming back to Castaway. The only reason we haven't stayed there on every trip is because it was already booked by someone else. We have 2 kids. We've stayed in the house with another family of 3 kids as well as with just our family. All great experiences. The back bunk room is big enough to sleep 4 kids comfortably and 6 kids comfortably if 2 of the kids are younger/smaller. So many things what makes Castaway special and set it apart. Here are a few: -Proximity to a great beach -Site on a hill, giving it a great view and the breeze keeps bugs away (Yes, unfortunately just about everywhere on Eleuthera has no see ums and mosquitos) -AC, enabling you to close up if there is no wind and stay away from bugs -Incredibly big deck with outdoor shower. Great for lounging, reading, lunching, sorting shells, etc. -Huge open kitchen, dining living room for evening entertainment -Separate back room with 2nd TV where kids can convene -Great location in central Eleuthera, close enough for easy access to Governor's Harbour, Ten Bay, Tarpum Bay and even Rock Sound is not too bad. Although, you don't really need to go anywhere. -Kayaks are awesome But most of all you will find the owner and caretaker incredibly accommodating. From the big things (like making sure there is always water... yes, this can be a problem at some houses) to the little things (ensuring the house always has laundry, shampoo, soap, and other necessities), all make for a great stay.

So beautiful and well worth the trip down!

  • 5 of 5

Our family loved using the kayaks to explore and played the foosball table at night! We had many tournaments! John was more than accomadating and we appreciated him so much! We had a lovely time on the island and enjoyed exploring. We traveled into governors Harbour a few times during the week to get fish so thank you for the recommendations! Would love to travel back on another family vacation

Absolutely Amazing!

  • 5 of 5

We had the best time in Eleuthera and during our stay at Bahamas Castaway. Honestly, one of the best beaches on the island. The home was perfect for our needs - we had 4 adults and 2 children and plenty of room for all of us. The kitchen has all you need for cooking and we never ran out of towels! We plan to go back for sure! Thanks Cathy!

Fabulous beachfront property on Double Bay

  • 5 of 5

This was our 7th trip to Eleuthera, and this property far exceeded our expectations. Panaromic beachfront views all around the house, with a view of the Atlantic ocean which was breathtaking. The house itself was extremely spacious, tastefully but comfortably furnished with plenty of space for my husband and I, mother-in-law and 3 children. Also very clean. We loved using the spacious deck out the front and walking down the steps to the wonderful beach of pink sand. Two separate lounge areas meant the kids and grown-ups had plenty of space to relax. The amenities were well up to standard with a fantastic kitchen/diner. The owner and property manager gave clear and detailed instructions for the property and the area. We had some great days out visiting both ends of the island but always felt relaxed coming back home to Bahamas Castaway. Definitely a property I'd recommend.

Amazing view and one of the best beaches on the island.

  • 5 of 5

The view from the deck is spectacular, and the property is located on one of the most beautiful beaches on the island. Bahamas Castaway is really spacious, and we found it equipped with everything that we needed. The kayaks were great fun, and we had fantastic weather so we were able to use them every day. While we were there we pretty much had the beach to ourselves most days, so it really was idyllic.

Bahamas Castaway

  • 5 of 5

This house exceeded expectations! The views are better in person, it was stunning walking into this home. Well maintained home with excellent layout. Owner is very easy to work with and responsive. House is well stocked with anything and everything you could need from snorkeling and fishing gear, books and games, and well equipped kitchen, we cooked several meals. The view every morning never got old, absolutely breathtaking pink sand beach, VERY private. We felt very at home in this house with our two children, 6 and 3. You can feel the home is loved and well cared for. The view while cooking on outdoor charcoal grill is stunning! The ocean breeze at night while sitting on back deck, cannot be beat, this house is truly a dream spot for a vacation, piece of paradise! Thank you Castaway, we'll be back!!
