Step onto your gorgeous, private, crescent shaped Atlantic Ocean pink sand beach and stroll in either direction for miles. You may spend your entire visit here and never see another person on your beach. Our beach has indescribably clear turquoise water with a flat pink sand beach. It is a perfect walking swimming beach!!
Wonderful pristine and tranquil setting for your Honeymoon, Anniversary, Birthday, Engagement or PreBaby Vacation as described by our past guests!
CAYO LOCO means 'crazy beautiful cay'. It is very private and the only sounds you will hear are the surf crashing around you. Swim with beautiful dolphins and marine life on our beach!! It is so special and awe-inspiring with Jim and Jeanette, our first visitors in the new house....they frolicked with us and we had a snorkel and could hear them talking to each other.....they put on a 'show' for us flipping, twirling and spinning around together!! Very special!!
CAYO LOCO are two very comfortable, casually elegant identical beach houses with all the amenities necessary to make living on the beach a pleasure. Once you arrive, you may never want to leave but you can wander down the beach a few minutes to a lovely small resort with a fabulous restaurant, jacuzzi, infinity pool with a swim-up bar, lounging beds and welcoming staff!
Spear fish on your reefs and bring back your lobster or grouper dinner. You've earned a nap in the hammock lulling between the palm trees but try to stay awake for star gazing on the deck when the sun goes down. Become 'zimzala' - free-spirited and find peace with sand between your toes!
On your beach right off shore, you can fish, snorkel, walk for miles, kayak, beach comb, go shelling, body surf, paddle board, play frisbee or just relax in the sun! CAYO LOCO are our private custom designed/built residences and are rented on a very limited basis. CAYO LOCO is located off a secluded, romantic sandy beach road 'away from it all'.
After a wonderful day at the beach, return to CAYO LOCO and refresh in your beautiful large ocean inspired glass block tiled shower with ocean view and nap on your ocean view king size pillow top bed with 100% egyptian cotton sheets.
When the astronauts look down to Earth from space, the crystal clear, turquoise waters of Cayo Loco can be clearly seen as nowhere else on Earth. Hut Point Bay on the Atlantic side of Governor's Harbour is a central location making it easy to get anywhere on the island to explore.

Lovely Cottage on the Most Beautiful Beach
This is a lovely property just steps away from the most beautiful beach. The cottage is cozy and comfortable with all sorts of little extras to make it relaxing and delightful. Maureen clearly puts a lot of work into the interior design, and as a result it feels open and airy and there are beautiful touches like colorful Kantha Quilts, prints on the walls, and pretty beach towels to use. On a practical level, there are plenty of kitchen items (pots, pans, coffee maker, teapot), potable water from a tap, TV with Netflix if you want, and plenty of bath towels. We were also impressed by how extremely clean the house is. The house has a covered front porch with a table and lounge chair (that fits two). It is a very nice place to read or relax if you need to get out of the sun for a bit. Just outside the house is a stairway down to the beach, which is amazing. Pink sand and aqua water, and you can walk a long ways in either direction. You may see a few other people come by occasionally but overall it is very private and calm. The property is about 5 minutes away from Pascal's, a fun beach restaurant at the Sky Club, and the town of Governor's Harbor is about twenty minutes away. There are a few shops and restaurants there if you feel like getting out, but you may want to just spend all your time at the house and on the beach! Maureen takes great care of the place and sincerely wants her guests to have the best possible experience. She provides all sorts of information about attractions and activities on Eleuthera, as well as all the practical information you need for your trip. Maureen, you were the most helpful, accommodating and friendly host we could have hoped to meet! Thank you for an absolutely delightful stay!!!
Oh my, thank you so much for such a warm and heartfelt review! It is truly appreciated. It was just wonderful to have you both choose our home for your Eleuthera experience. You made me so happy to hear how appreciative and aware you were of my efforts. I just love to hear that you were comfy and cozy in our island home. The beach, color of the sand and water still takes my breath away every day when I walk even though I've been here for 13 years. Thank you for taking such great care during your stay!
The perfect Eleutheran retreat!
My husband and I loved our stay at Cayo Loco! The adorable pastel cottage was the perfect compliment to the sea foam green beach below, accessible by stairs next to the residence. Maureen is so sweet and provided everything we needed in the house, and even took some beautiful photos of us on the beach! There are two rental cottages next to each other, but we could NEVER hear the other guests, and due to the angle of the porches and the beautiful palm trees and agave plants between them, you can’t see each other! We hired a local couple, per Maureen’s suggestion, to come cook us a traditional Bahamian meal (conch fritters, spiny lobster, freshly caught wahoo) which I recommend doing! We tried different restaurants each night and loved all of Maureen’s suggestions. We rented a car which was very helpful so that we could get around the island easily and explore (we drove to the farthest south beach on the Caribbean side and it was paradise!), although you never get sick of the view at Cayo Loco! I highly recommend this place as a peaceful and gorgeous getaway!
It was the perfect way to celebrate our 25 year anniversary!
It was everything we hoped it would be in a private, unique and romantic escape!
Just so thrilled to have our guests' delight in their escape to all that is Cayo Loco!
It WAS a beautiful secluded beach house!!!
Beach was beautiful - a little mind-boggling - as we walked several miles many days without seeing anyone! When it was crowded there were 4-5 people somewhere down the beach. Maureen was available for any questions & had the place perfectly tended to. Had great dinner from Anna & Jeremy and car/day tour to Lighthouse beach from Chris Darling - several of many great recommendations from Maureen. The cottage was very clean with everything we needed for two weeks. We appreciated the cooler and beach chairs we could use for visiting other beaches-although loved returning to our own secluded paradise. Eleuthera is a unique & beautiful place worth visiting. We'll be back!!
Your own secluded paradise for 2 - Eleuthera is such a unique & beautiful place still undiscovered. Happy to share it with you both! We would love to have you back!!
Unbelievable location, friendly caretakers and everything you need close by.
Beach is on the front door step. House is nice, and has everything you need for a relaxing beach holiday. Governors Harbour five minutes drive. And is well located in the middle of Eleuthera for easy access to other parts of the island. Unreal place.
Happy to have you both experience Cayo Loco in person! It is truly 'unreal and unbelievable'! Thanks for choosing Cayo Loco for your Eleuthera beach holiday!
best beach in eleuthera
Everything was wonderful here. The cottage is adorable, the owners are attentive and caring, the beach is absolutely gorgeous, and the location couldn't be better. We stayed eight days and could have stayed forever. We loved driving into Governor's Harbor to go to the bakery, and also down past Palmetto Point to see the gorgeous Ten Bay Beach... but mostly we loved the long lazy days, on the cottage porch, sitting on the beach-chairs next to the water, or wading in the ocean. Thank you!
You are most welcome and we thoroughly enjoyed having you both! Always such a delight when our guests fall in love with our island paradise as we have! Just like you, we can sit and watch the ocean forever! Thank you for taking such great care of our beach home and we would love to have you back again to visit!
We have dolphins on our beach. It is the most beautiful experience to interact with them!! Eleuthera offers every imaginable water related activity from deep sea fishing to fabulous diving and kiteboarding. At Cayo Loco you can even try the latest sporting rage - paddle boarding - very easy to learn offering an excellent relaxing core workout!!
If you are into DWS (deep water soloing) bring your climbing gear as well!
You can be on the beach with your toes in the sand with a 20 minute flight from Nassau which is serviced by nearly every airline in the world.
Come experience a time long gone where solitude, serenity, and sitting in nature is all you have to do for your day's work! Or be active and go out and explore and climb a face hanging over the sea! You don't have to choose one or the other as Eleuthera has it all!
