The Helios Estate consists of the Main House (which sleeps 8 in 4 bedrooms), Helios Tower (which sleeps 4 in 2 bedrooms) and Helios Cottage (which sleeps 2 in a studio bedroom). Guests rent the Main House and have a choice of adding the Tower and/or Cottage depending on how large their group is and how much accommodation (up to 14 guests) they need.
In the Fall of 2018 we will be adding a bunk room with two small bathrooms to Helios House, which will accommodate an additional 6 guests, probably kids, enabling us to welcome up to 20 guests at the Helios Estate..

About Bertrand Kan
Originally from Holland, I now spend part of my time in the Bahamas
Bertrand Kan purchased this Estate in 2006
Why Bertrand Kan chose North Palmetto Point
Singing Sands Bay is one of the most beautiful, private and secluded Pink Sand beaches on Eleuthera. Helios House is at the center of the bay, with the most extraordinary beach right in front of it. The colours of sea and beach have to be seen to be believed. The house is very spacious and comfortable and has been designed to be sustainable, with full rainwater harvesting, solar HW and a wonderful organic farm.
What makes this Estate unique
See above: Helios House is a wonderful estate situated on and looking out over the most incredible beach and sea.

This place is truly paradise!
Helios House is a beautiful place to vacation with a group. We stayed with friends for a 50th birthday celebration. Bertrand is very attentive and responsive to emails prior to your arrival, so you feel comfortable. The house manager, Nicki, met us at the house and went through the details and home. The housekeeper, Shirley, was wonderful and took good care of us. A sweet lady. Our Chef, Irene, was perfect. I would recommend getting a chef to reduce your shopping, cooking, and cleaning time! We were truly able to relax at this paradise! Some other reviews had cautioned that it is slippery around the pool area and this is true - so, do be careful. It is easy to get to the beach. There is a nice Cabana on the beach to hang out and we only saw 3 other people for a short time the entire 8 days. You do feel like this beach is yours. The only reason I gave this place 4 stars is because we had some issues with the pool and not being able to use it for a couple of days. A large storm came through and caused it to become murky. We did notify the house manager, but, she stated they normally treat it once a week so it did not get treated again. I have notified Bertrand of the issue upon return and he was very responsive to fixing this problem in the future. I feel sure that if you are a guest there, it will be taken care of right away. We would definitely stay there again!!!
Seven AMAZING days...
.. or as our kids said.. "do we have to go home?" We had an incredible and relaxing family vacation at Helios House. Centrally located this absolutely stunning estate was the perfect base to explore Eleuthera. Close enough but not too close to shopping and some really nice restaurants. Eleuthera has many nice beaches but we constantly found ourselves retreating back to "our own" beach in the afternoons. We literally had the most incredible beach in front of the house completely to ourselves every day. Kids loved the pool which got a lot of use and with a view like that it was easy for dad and mom to play lifeguard. Thanks for a wonderful vacation!
Most perfect spot in Eleuthera
Helios House fit our family of fourteen in the three units very comfortably over Christmas and New Years. The living room dining, entertainment area and kitchen were very spacious. All the outside sitting and lounging areas were great for large get together and yet enough private areas to be alone and read. The Infinity pool and patio was extraordinary in size and views of the Atlantic. The grounds bushes and trees were well laid out and the swaying mature Palms were mesmerizing on the eyes. The pink sand beach went on forever and looked like we owned it all. No one else around. The owner and property manager were very friendly and accommodating to all our requests. We dove down in Rock Sound area and it was great. Tippys bar and restaurant was real close (order fresh grouper and Lobster tails were huge). Cracked Conch at Buccaneers Club was super tender. Banks Deli had great baguettes and cheese and pate. The Cafe Market on Banks Road was a good deli too. "Gourmet Pizza in the Islands is not NY Pizza so we made our own in the Helio House outside Pizza Oven (bring water from Brooklyn). We will be back.
Perfect getaway for our extended family
We were looking for a quiet, clean and warm location for a family member's birthday and the Helios House turned out to be the perfect location. The owner had thought out all the details for a relaxing stay including music, games, movies, table tennis, beach furniture...etc. The swimming pool was beautiful and the beach was relaxing and empty. The night sky was filled with stars. There was an option to have a cook but we chose to cook on our own. A few recommendations: fly into Govenor's Harbor, research the grocery stores/farmer's market if you plan on cooking on your own and have an idea how to get to the home from the airport.
Absolute seclusion. Completely amazing.
The house was better than we thought, Niki the housekeeper was great, and the house itself was clean and had a great location. The entire property including the pool, beach, and surrounding area, was 100% private!! The beach out front was probably the best on the island, from the few that we saw. Had the best week ever! I just can't say enough about this place.
Beautiful house, on the best beach in Eleuthera
Helios House is not only just off the best road, Banks Road, in Eleuthera, it's on the most perfect, pink sand stretch of beach. The house grounds are beautiful - old growth palms and grass and gardens. The house is classic - wide open and breezy, with tons of space in the main house and 'tower house'. All mod cons including Apple TV in every round and a wicked Sonos sound system. Beautiful and big pool for the kids and great outdoor pizza oven/BBQ. Best of all are the staff, including Angela, who is so welcoming and warm - best Gnocchi anywhere! Great swimming and snorkling right off the beach. Really can't say enough how fantastic this place is #paradise
The Atlantic Coast between Governor's Harbour and North Palmetto Point is often referred to as the Gold Coast of Eleuthera, with its extraordinary, endless pink sand beaches. Other Activities: Pool
