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.

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

Beautiful Two Dunes
This was our second stay at Two Dunes and again it did not disappoint. Working with Rachel and Will makes the process so easy. They communicate timely and frequently. Always willing to assist with any questions or arrangements that might be needed. We found the house to be well equipped and clean. And oh that beach!!! This house is simply on the best beach on Eleuthera and just steps to the sand. If you are looking for privacy, Two Dunes is your place. If you find the Atlantic side is windy, be sure to check out Ten Bay on the Caribbean side. However playing in the waves by the house is fun as well. Check out the Fish Fry on Friday night in Governor's Harbor. Treat yourself to a nice dinner at Tippy's. Looking for gifts or a special T-Shirt, be sure to visit Norma's Gift Shop in Governor's Harbor, she has a big selection. We highly recommend this property!
Cozy house, stunning views
Celebrated our 20th Anniversary here ... definitely won’t wait 20 years to return! Perfect vacation.
What a fantastic piece of paradise!
We have to say our second stay at Two Dunes was even better than the first. Starting our vacation with a fantastic lobster dinner prepared and delivered by the wonderful Natasha was the perfect, stress-free way to begin. It gave us time to figure out what was in the house already and what we needed to buy at the big Rock Sound grocery store on our second day.
As others have mentioned, the house has just about anything you could possibly need, both in the kitchen and for outside activities. There is lots of space to store toiletries in the bathroom, and plenty of counter and cupboard space in the kitchen. There are also plenty of places to hang towels, etc., which we don’t often see in vacation rentals. And this fair-skinned redhead is especially happy to have the beach umbrella, and the availability of shade at any time of day at the house. The new storm shutters create just enough shade for protection when you’re sitting up on the deck. The only thing we missed this time was an outdoor clothesline.
We had a lot of fun feeding the lizards scrambled eggs, which they really seem to love. One is much less shy than the other and even crawled up into my lap one day out on the deck! He spent a short time on my shoulder before continuing on his way.
We thoroughly enjoyed having evening cocktails on “our” boat, enjoying the sunset over the salt pond and watching the activities of the various birds that spend their time there. Or facing the Atlantic and enjoying the way the setting sun reflects on the crests of the waves. The light is very special at that time of day.
Going to sleep and waking up to the sound of the waves is one of the most soothing things on the planet and we miss that now that we’re home in chilly New England, where we’re still waiting for the arrival of spring. And waking up each morning to see the many greens and blues of the ocean is such a treat. Beach walking is fantastic, with lots of treasures to be found in both directions.
We very much look forward to returning to Two Dunes. It’s one very special place that will always hold a place in our hearts.
Thank you so much for the review, and so happy you enjoyed your stay!
The clothesline came down when we installed the new shutters. We'll get it back up shortly. Thank you for the reminder!
Our best vacation by a large margin
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
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).
Unbelievable peace, quiet, and beauty.
Thanks for sharing this great place!
