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.

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.

                                                      We stayed here over spring break in March of '18 and we had a a fantastic experience. I give it FIVE STARS! Why do you want to stay at One Palm Hill? Here are a few reasons. 1 - The home is an ideal set-up for families as I brought my 3 kids (ages 14, 11, and 8). My wife and I obviously had the master, my daughter had a room to herself and the two boys shared a room. Plenty of space. The pool is really great for an evening swim and there is a great stock of movies and a Wii for the evenings. 2 - The home is well stocked with supplies. Many of the homes we have rented through the years are sorely lacking in this area. Not so here - plenty of cookware, cooking utensils, etc. There were a couple of "beach books" that aided our daily task of adventuring to the unknown. 3 - The home is perfectly located on the island. Being located a mere 2 minutes from "downtown" Govenors Harbour, you were perfectly situated to reach all of the "must go" beaches, popular restaurants, and site-seeing. If we were in Rainbow, Rock Sound, etc. - we would be less centrally located and the drive each day would be that much longer. 4 - The homes comes with Carol! Carol is your caretaker for the week, if an issue should arise. We had a couple of items here and there that we needed help with and Carol was so friendly and responsive helping us. We felt like she was part of the family. I usually take 2 - 4 trips a year stateside and almost always rent a home. One Palm Hill was my first international rental and it was a great experience working with the owners and the house itself is up there as one of our favorites.

                                                      Beautiful and restful

                                                      The house was immaculate, fully loaded and extremely comfortable. Carol the housekeeper was very helpful and we were made to feel welcome. Eleuthera was full of friendly faces and had a very relaxed atmosphere. The sandy beaches are second to none and wonderfully deserted although reaching them can be an adventure - definitely hire a 4wd vehicle! Everyone was helpful and efficient - from Ed Hanna for our chartered flights, Jerome at Big E car rentals, Matt, Tara, Roselyn, Krista and Carol from Vacation Rentals. I would thoroughly recommend this property.
