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.
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
We chose to spend our honeymoon in Eleuthera and had the most incredible time at the Two Dunes. The Two Dunes is a truly lovely, modern and authentic house that has all the amenities we needed plus more. The private beach literally took our breath away. The pink sand felt luxurious under our feet and the water was a varying shades of beautiful turquoise and sky blue, it was truly mesmerizing.
We spent hours lounging on the deck, relaxing and unwinding from the hectic life we live in Toronto. Rachel and Will are amazing hosts, they provided us with everything we needed and we instantly felt it was a home away from home. On one of the evenings we ventured into town and had a delicious dinner at Tippy’s and attended the festive Friday Fish Fry in which we had a chance to sample the house rum punch and dance with the locals – so much fun! For any one looking to book a vacation in the Bahamas, look no further. Two Dunes is the place for you. We plan on coming back and doing it all over again next year!
Thanks Will and Rachel. :)
we had the most amazing 10 days at Two Dunes.... the cottage is right on the beach with beautiful vista of the beach, you have lots of privacy since it is the last house... it was clean and everything needed for a comfortable vacation .... Thank you Rachel and Will for letting us stay in this piece of heaven!! we will return!!!!
I almost hate to write a review because then everyone will know about our secret little paradise but I just have to praise Two Dunes and the owners Will and Rachel! Two Dunes is a perfect beach bungalow tucked away on a nearly private beach on Eleuthera, Bahamas. The location is perfect. We've stayed at other residences nearby but Two Dunes by far has the most accessible swimming and snorkeling. The house itself is beautifully decorated and we wanted for NOTHING while we stayed there. The views out of the multitude of sliding glass doors is breathtaking. There is nothing like waking up and opening your eyes to the aquamarine water surrounding the property. It is wonderful to go play in the water and sun then tuck away on lounge chairs under the covered patio to enjoy the ocean breezes and soothing sound of the waves. The house is very well kept and the grounds are clean. The owners and the caretaker are VERY accommodating and friendly - as are the locals. We returned home less than a week ago and have already booked another stay! Kudos to Two Dunes!
My husband and I just returned from our first visit to Eleuthera, and we could not have chosen a better place than Two Dunes. This house sits right on the beach and the only thing between you and the water is about 4 or 5 steps down from the deck and that beautiful pink sand! The beach is pretty extensive in either direction so you will have plenty of privacy! Lounging on the outside deck after a dip in the ocean with that wonderful breeze is absolute heaven and who doesn’t love to shower outside ;) There is no traffic passing the house due to the condition of Banks Rd, so privacy was not an issue. Although, don’t forget to pack some OFF or something like it because no matter where you are on the island, those little no-see ums can be vicious. The pictures of the home, inside and out, are pretty accurate. A new bar height dining set by the front door to the porch was one of our favorite places to enjoy meals. The view is beyond spectacular. But considering the openness of the floor plan and floor to ceiling windows, all the views are spectacular! The kitchen was well stocked, which allowed us to do most of our own cooking, mainly on the grill provided. There were plenty of fresh towels and the house itself was immaculate. We were fortunate to meet Natasha, the caretaker, on our first day and she was a true delight and very willing to answer any questions we might have. One night we had a thunderstorm, nothing major, but a lot of lightening which shut off the TV’s digital library, not that we spent much time in front of the TV, but I thought I would reach out to Rachel (the owner) and ask about it. Within no time at all, I had a response with some simple instructions to get everything back on track. It was very impressive – considering it was the weekend, but not surprising! Rachel is wonderful about responding so quickly! The location of the house makes it great for exploring other parts of the island. Lighthouse Beach is a must see! However, there is nothing like enjoying the wonderful beach right outside your own door. I would highly recommend stopping at Country Café, about a block or so past Millard’s Variety, for one of the best burgers you could ever imagine! They also have pizza and ice cream! We were extremely pleased with our overall experience with Two Dunes and of course the great communication with Rachel and Will, and are already looking forward to making plans for a return trip!!
