Overview

About the property

1 Bedroom, 1 Bath, Sleeps 4

Med Point is the best 1 bedroom beach house on the best beach in the best township in Eleuthera. It is a ROMANTIC, SECLUDED AND STYLISH ONE-BEDROOM OCEANFRONT BEACHHOUSE, located on Casuarina Beach and just 100' from French Leave Beach (formally also known as Club Med Beach for the Club Med resort that was located there in the 90s). It is on the point between 2 beaches. No other properties are between it and world-famous French Leave Beach. It is a short stroll to Twin Coves Beach and its superb snorkeling reef. Med Point Beach House is like a lighthouse guarding the north end of French Leave Beach, which is the loveliest and safest beach in Eleuthera. In addition, we are only a 1 mile stroll to the center of town.

The 1 story house was NEWLY RENOVATED in 2009 by a Governors Harbour's premier designer, with wood floors, Brazilian cherry doors, and white wooden accents. The king wooden platform bed and sofas/daybeds were specially created for Med Point, which has a pale blue and white theme. Comforts include 400 thread-count sheets and Thomas by Rosenthal china. Step outside the glass doors, and you will see ocean spreading away as far as you can see.

Med Point beach house has a huge 1100 square foot teak wrap-around deck facing the beach and ocean, and all modern conveniences, with a full kitchen, great room, wifi and large sliding glass doors on both sides facing the ocean to maximize your viewing pleasure. It has a KING BED master suite, plus 2 large day beds/sofas in the living room for 2 more guests. The dining area faces the ocean.

There are miles of deserted beaches on both sides of Med Point, with the famous pink sand French Leave Beach next door. The ocean is right up against our deck, and you can sometimes see grouper fish playing in the surf. Because we are on a point, you can walk the 1 mile to the town of Governor's Harbour, along a sandy road through French Leave Beach.

The drive to Med Point, takes you for about half a mile, on a sandy lane through French Leave Beach, looking out to sea and giant cacti and palms. You will enjoy this splendid view of nature every day, as you go into town.

The famous bar/restaurant Tippy's is close, and there are upscale restaurants such as Sky Beach Club and 1648 Bar and Grill, as well as charming takeouts in Governor's Harbour. we are a walk away from Baccus Fine Foods.

Med Point is also close to Tear Coat Cay, a small island offshore, where you can snorkel; also close to lots of reefs for other snorkeling. The water is gin clear, 100 feet of visibility, and we have seen parrot fish, groupers, rays and other exotic fish. The water is 75 to 88 degrees Fahrenheit.

French Leave (Club Med) Beach stretches southward for 1 mile: we are at the northern edge where it is quiet, with fewer tourists. Casuarina Beach, stretches north of us for another mile, and then Twin Cove beach stretches north for another mile or so. All of this can be walked along wide sandy pink beaches with excellent shelling. Or you can jog along the sandy path that is Old Banks Road and have wide vistas of white surf.

The various gardens have coconut and royal palms, hibiscus and oleander and sea lettuce. Walk off one stairway on the deck and you will stand on a gorgeous coral garden and see the nearby blowhole that spouts 30 feet in the air. Walk off the other steps past hibiscus and palms and geckos onto Casuarina Bay Beach. Turtles nest at night on our beach.

The house is decorated modernly, in blue and white. Two walls of the house are glass, so that you are bathing in views of blue ocean and surf. There are two huge daybeds/couches for lounging, and a rocking chair to plan for retirement. The kitchen is new, and comfortably supplied, for cooking as you stare at the ocean. Then dine at a beautiful wooden table, staring at the ocean nearby, virtually at your feet. At night, go out on the deck and get a fabulously clear view of the stars.

Most people who walk by Med Point, express regret that they are staying elsewhere! They tell us that they would like to spend their next ho

Why Kim and Jason Menefee and Matthew Simon chose Governor's Harbour, The Bahamas

Exceptional Property. Prime Location. Great Find!

  • 5 of 5

While seeking privacy, location and amenities for our Bahamas vacation experience, I found Med Point in Governors Harbour. We are delighted with our choice. Everything was seamless and easy. From reserving the property, to having the caretaker create a magical meal for us upon arrival.

The location is central to the island, and is surrounded by miles of secluded sand beach with turquoise water and crashing waves. Med Point is beautifully appointed, clean and well cared for. We felt at home immediately. Simply drop your suitcase and head to the water.

Loved it. We will be back!

This little cottage is so comfortable and romantic. The deck overlooking the ocean feels very private and there was almost never anyone on the beach. This place is perfect for experiencing Eleuthera’s gorgeous beaches.

Reviewer Comments:

Med Point is spectacularly located at the end of the most beautiful beach on Eleuthera. Unfortunately, the narrow, deeply-rutted dirt road to reach it is a challenge, even with 4-wheel drive. The house itself is adequate for 2 people, but minimally outfitted and in need of TLC. Sun, salt and sand have left the structure and furnishings in need of replacement or repair: stained curtains, sliding doors which don't open, bathroom mold, rusted coffee maker and refrigerator shelves and missing light bulbs. Despite frequent power outages on the island, the house has no generator, candles or battery-powered lantern. One of the two tiny flashlights had dead batteries, making for a very dark evening! All in all, we would hesitate to recommend this property unless necessary improvements were made.

Owner's Response: The owner has repaired the road to the house since this guest's stay. (Although it's a public road, heavy rains in January damaged it, so she decided to fix it rather than wait for the local government to do so.) She is addressing the other issues as well. I'll include specifics here as I learn of them.

Reviewer Comments:

We loved our stay and wish we were still there. A perfect place if you want privacy and to be disconnected. We were there in hurricane season, so there were very few people on the island. At times, we had a mile or so of beach all to ourselves. There wasn't much open in the way of stores, but once we got our bearings and a few groceries, we didn't have any worries. The caretaker, Christine, cooked us a wonderful curry chicken dinner midway through the week, and the Friday Fish Fry with the locals was delightful. I wish we were there now.

Map

Med Point is located directly between French Leave Beach, and Casuarina Beach an idyllic, mile-long, pink-sand beach with only one other house on its entire length. The French Leave Beach surf is very mild, protected by a large reef system that parallels the shore. The water is among the clearest in the world. Just offshore from Med Point is an excellent reef for snorkeling, inhabited by many colorful reef fishes.

The town of Governors Harbour, a mile away, has a charming collection of 19th century homes and churches overlooking its historic harbor. Buy fresh fish and lobster every afternoon from fisherman at the town dock, or visit the recently restored Haynes Library, which dates from 1897, for the weekly coffee hour for foreigners. Governors Harbour has grocery stores, restaurants, liquor stores, two banks with ATMs, a bakery, gift shops, a dive shop, and a medical clinic. Friday Night Fish Fry, a street/beach party that brings together all the tourists and locals with food, drink, and dancing, is not to be missed.

Med Point is at the north (quiet and more protected) end of French Leave Beach, 7 miles from the airport, 1 mile from the town of Governors Harbour.

Other Activities: Boating, Spelunking, Shopping, Kayaking, Wildlife Viewing
