About the property

Very private beachfront house

Relax to the sound of the surf at your doorstep in this private, open concept couples retreat.

Two Dunes is luxuriously secluded, situated as the only house on a mile of powder-soft pink sand beach. With floor to ceiling windows filling the walls and multiple walk-outs, you are immersed in a stunning ocean view from both inside and out. A huge deck surrounds the house, equipped with sun beds, picnic table and loungers front and back for true outdoor living. Step off the deck, onto the sand and right into the clear turquoise water. No need to pack a beach bag! The covered terrace provides shade and lovely views from its position elevated above the beach. The private outdoor shower provides a refreshing cleanse while gazing at the surf.

The second house is private space and is never occupied when Two Dunes is rented.

Explore the reefs just offshore in the clear-bottomed kayak and bring your snorkels. The swimming is excellent with a nice sandy bottom just beside the house as well as a sandy bottomed 'reef pool' at low tide.

The house has a comfortable king bed with luxury linens, reclining chesterfield, HDTV DVD and Media Library with 700 movies and 100 TV shows, iPod docking station, full bath, kitchen equipped with high-powered blender for cocktails, Internet access, A/C and ceiling fans. Huge windows on three walls provide tons of light and spectacular ocean views. Three large doors walk out onto the terrace and deck.

Just a few minutes away is the town of Palmetto Point, which provides restaurants and stores. Also close by are many other beaches, the town of Governor's Harbour, Sky Beach Club, the airport (only 17 miles away), Island Farm and other attractions.

Directly behind the house is a picturesque inland lake with a variety of fish, plentiful bird watching opportunities and spectacular sunsets.

About Rachel

We fell in love with the 'family' islands in the Bahamas after a trip to Exuma. So much so we wanted to own a beach house on one of them. After sampling several islands we decided that Eleuthera was the best for us.

Rachel purchased this house in 2013

Our best vacation by a large margin

  • 5 of 5

While preparing to celebrate our 30th anniversary in Eleuthera I did a lot of research trying to decide the best place to stay. It took some time to narrow down our choices but upon arriving and looking at the places we had considered we were so glad to have chosen Two Dunes. It is really hard to put how perfect our stay was in words. It was everything we hoped for and much more.

My communication with Rachel was perfect from the beginning and she was so helpful and responded promptly. The location couldn't have been more perfect. Even though we did visit other beaches, our preference was always to return to the beach in front of two dunes. We would swim, snorkle, and talk for hours with no others in sight. Every day was warm and sunny and we never had any problems with bugs.

We had some reservations going in, about the studio layout of the beach house but we found it to be amazing and perfect for two people. Most of our meals were eaten at two dunes as it was so wonderful we didn't want to leave. Eleuthera and Two Dunes were perfect for us as we enjoyed every minute and we can't wait to return . Thanks, Rachel for making our dream vacation a reality. You can bet we will be back!!

Tranquility and beauty

  • 5 of 5

We have returned every year beginning in 2013 - and always find the beauty of this secluded beach very alluring. Two Dunes is carefully maintained, with a number of upgrades at every visit. This property gives direct access to the beach, with a deep pool outside the door, perfect for snorkeling at low tide. Some evenings we sat in the lounge chairs and watched the stars, spotted infrequently passing ships, and listened to the surf. The Wi-Fi is pretty reliable, given weather conditions that can interfere with the satellite. Until the rainy season starts, the island is very dry, reminding us to conserve water. We returned home very refreshed and happy (but sad to be leaving).

Relaxing week at Two Dunes

  • 5 of 5

A Norwegian Couple stayed one week in this beautiful beach house, perfect for relaxing and enjoying Eleuthera and Bahamas. Secluded location, no close neighbours and nice beach for sunning, swimming in calm lagoons and walking on the reef.

Four of our days this part of Eleuthera was very windy and cloudy; that encouraged us to find other beaches to the south and north of the island; good experiences, the island has a lot to offer. The Caribbean side beaches in the south was particularly calm and beautiful - and no other people in sight....

We can highly recommend Two Dunes for relaxation and seclusion.

What daydreams are about!

  • 5 of 5

It's almost been a year since we stayed at Two Dunes. I haven't written a review because well...I'm a procrastinator! But I felt the need to write today. We went to Eleuthera for our honeymoon in April 2016 and enjoyed every second of it. We talk about Two Dunes all the time and how the house is PERFECT. The location, the fact that we didn't see anyone when we were there, the caretaker, the view, the price, the owners....Two Dunes is perfection. This was my dream vacation I thought I would only get to take once in my life. My husband (it's almost our one year anniversary!!) said this morning...WHEN WE GO BACK to Two Dunes......I cannot even imagine. Thank you so much for making my dreams come true! Anyone who stays at Two Dunes will realize that there is a heaven right here on earth!

Paradise Three Years Running!

  • 5 of 5

It was such a pleasure to return to Two Dunes for our third stay. I can't say enough about what a little private oasis it is. Each year we come we see only a handful of people walking/playing on the beach the entire week we are there. The open floorpan of the house and the sliding glass doors on three of the four house walls allow the ocean and beach to embrace you wherever you are in the house. We loved waking up to the waves each day and going to bed to them by night. The house is clean and the shade on the porch is so valuable for those of us who burn easily. Treat yourself and visit Two Dunes!
