About the property

3 Bedrooms, 3 Baths, Sleeps 7

Welcome to One Palm Hill, newly remodeled in the summer of 2015. This sunny house is located on a hilltop just a mile from the town of Governors Harbor and a ten-minute walk (or one-minute drive) from spectacular Twin Coves Beach. Built by the island’s top custom home builder and decorated by its premier interior designer, One Palm Hill is stylish and comfortable. The elegantly decorated great room with stunning 24-inch tile floors has lounge seating for 6 and features a flat-screen satellite TV. The dining area can seat up to as many as eight at the table. Four more diners can be seated on stools at the kitchen counter. The fully equipped island kitchen features a gas range, stainless steel appliances, and decorative concrete counter tops. There is a laundry room off the great room with a washer and dryer. There is also a LPG generator which comes in handy here on Eleuthera.

One Palm Hill has three bedrooms, each with an en-suite bath. Each bedroom also has a flat-screen cable TV. It’s furnished with a four-poster king bed. One guest suite is also furnished with a king. The other guest bedroom has twin beds that can convert to a king, as well as a day bed that can sleep a 7th guest. This guest bedroom’s en-suite bath can also be accessed from the hall. All bathrooms are elegantly finished in tile and tumbled marble. In addition to three bathrooms, there is an outdoor shower.

Outside the house has a wrap-around porch shaded by pergolas, a lovely spot for enjoying a drink, sunning, or grilling. Beside it is a beautiful new pool from which you can see the ocean at a distance.

One Palm Hill is loaded with amenities including an in-ground private pool, outdoor shower, AC throughout, high speed internet with WIFI, three TVs with cable (including two smart TV’s), landline phone and cell phone, Wii system with games, Xbox system with games, large movie library with over 100 movies, iPod dock, books, beach chairs and umbrellas, pool floats and beach toys, snorkel gear, high chair, pack n play, gas grill, and a back up generator.

Governors Harbor, the main town on the island is just two minutes away by car. Governors Harbor 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 foreign residents and tourists. . Governors Harbour has grocery stores, restaurants, liquor stores, two banks with ATMs, a bakery, gift shops, and a medical clinic. Friday night Fish Fry in Governors Harbor, a street/beach party that brings together all the tourists and locals with food, drink, and dancing in the street, is not to be missed.

Eleuthera is most famous for its 100 miles of spectacular, deserted beaches. The island, home to just 8000 residents, is completely safe any time of the day or night. Enjoy the rare experience of picking up hitch-hikers and leaving your keys in the car wherever you go. The snorkeling, diving, and fishing on the island are world class. Boating, surfing, and other water sports are also popular. You can rent power boats, sailboats, sea kayaks, bikes. You can have a charter captain take you out for excursions of various types. There is excellent sightseeing as well. Eleuthera has vast caves, cliffs, a bottomless ocean hole, many unique beaches, historic churches and 19th century homes, and small villages to explore. Come enjoy One Palm Hill and experience all our island has to offer.

Reviewer Comments:

We enjoyed the rental very much. Fit our group of 4 really well. We thought the caretaker would check in on us at least once but didn't. We were surprised about some of the supplies that we would have had to buy if we ran out.

Most amazing place

  • 5 of 5

One palm Hill had everything we could of possibly needed plus some.The house was extremely well cared for and clean. There always seemed to a nice breeze coming in through the living room and was surprised there was no need for air conditioning. The pool was relaxing after a nice beach day, we floated with our wine! We had morning coffee with the hummingbirds on the deck. The caretakers, rental assistants, and owner were all very helpful and checked on us several times.The people are the friendliest, the food is the best, and the water is the clearest bluest!!! What better vacation could we ask for. Can't wait to come back.

Perfect for a Couple's Getaway

  • 5 of 5

This house is possibly the best HomeAway property I've rented! The house is EXACTLY like the pictures. They have thought of everything you need for a beach vacation and the house is decorated so well, too. My husband and I and two other couples had a fabulous time. The housekeeper was responsive to all our questions and management helped us find a reliable car rental person. Hire a chef for at least one night! The beaches are fantastic! We will be back!

too good to be true ....

  • 5 of 5

this was the first time we decided to spend our winter holiday in a private villa instead of luxury resort and this is gonna be the last time , because it never gonna happen anymore to find out somewhere else in eleuthera such a great villa !

villa has a special taste : i don't know if comes from forniture, total white style , view of ocean and carribean sea from the garden or the alabama style entrance but reality is that we extremely enjoyed this place .

More luxury doesn't fit with the style island which is for people who loves exploring beaches and wildness all around .

Special thanks to the ladies who are managing one palm hill .

wonderful gem of a beach house

  • 5 of 5

this is a great property -- although early jan. in the Bahamas is quite cool & windy.

we had 5 adults & 2 kids comfortably in this chic and comfy vacation home. (nanny in kids' rm w/ twin beds)

views are beautiful & the home is spacious, airy & stocked with whatever you might need for the beach.

Owner's Response: We're delighted that you enjoyed the house! I'm sorry you had some cool weather. That is actually not typical. You are more likely to get warm sunny weather in January. Not hot, but warm, with highs around 80 or a bit higher.

Perfect in Every Way

  • 5 of 5

One Palm Hill is a stunningly lovely property that was the PERFECT place for our family of five to spend their first Tropical Christmas. The house itself is flooded with light, beautifully laid out, with much attention and thought put into decorating it with style while keeping it homey and comfortable. Every detail was considered, and the place was immaculate. The entire property was so beautiful, from the pool area to the landscaping that provided the perfect amount of privacy, it was like being at our own resort. The kitchen was top of the line and well stocked besides, the bathrooms well designed and attractive, the bedrooms all comfortable---each with their own bathroom, and each a corner location with two big windows for good circulation, individual airconditioners for maximum comfort, I could go on and on.

In addition to being one of the most attractive and comfortable houses we have ever rented, I was struck with how unusually well cared for we felt in terms of the hospitality that we extended to us, not only by the property management company and the caretaker for the house, but the owner herself! At every step of the rental process I felt completely connected and supported, which is particuularly nice when you are going out of the country. With their help I was even able to arrange to have a live Christmas tree delivered to the house just before our arrival---something I could never have managed myself from so far away, and which meant a huge deal to my children.

Finally, for those considering the island of Eleuthera, I can recommend it heartily to anyone who is looking for an authentic Bahamanian experience---few tourists, breathtaking, deserted beaches just minutes away by foot or car, a friendly local community. If you don't want to see potholes or a few empty lots, if you want chain restaurants or brightly lit supermarkets, if you need 4-lane highways and your phone to work 100% of the time, this might not be the island for you, but if you are open to a little of unpredictability, I can assure you that I cannot imagine a more beautiful, peaceful, gracious base of operations for your Eleutheran adventure than One Palm Hill!
