North Palmetto Point house description
Waters Edge is a beachfront villa surrounded by lush gardens and palm trees. It is a casually elegant, yet extraordinarily comfortable, beach house overlooking a glorious beach.
Snorkeling and swimming are just steps away in the clear blue waters teeming with coral reefs and brilliantly colored tropical fish
On the deserted beach in front of Waters Edge there are shells galore for one to find! Search for the magical sea bean, a treasure that makes a floating journey across the Atlantic and promises the finder good luck for many years.
After a day on the beach, relax in the Adirondack chairs on the dune deck and catch the warm tropical breezes that keep the deck perfectly cooled all day for sunning, reading and daydreaming. At night, more stars can be seen than many will see in a lifetime. The big dipper and litte dipper will scoop you up into a zillion constellations.
The house is is designed for the ultimate privacy for couples or families with two master suites, each with its own master bath. Each bedroom has its own satellite TV, designer bed linens, and unique décor. The bedrooms have a sliding glass door onto the deck and overlook the ocean. Bathrooms are stocked with hairdryers, shampoo, bath soap/body wash. Guests can expect oversized fluffy bath and beach towels too!!!
The great room and kitchen are wonderful for group gatherings.The satellite TV and dvds are great for relaxing, and so are the games and books. The island bar is a just the perfect place to gather for breakfasts and quick meals.
Spend time relaxing or dining alfresco on the large, partially covered front deck that faces the ocean. Or wake up to morning coffee watching the great blue herons,coots and ducks from the deck overlooking the pond at the back of the house.
We invite to you this little piece of paradise - its dazzling beaches, romantic sunsets, crystal clear waters, and friendly people.

WATER'S EDGE, PALMETTO POINT, ELEUTHERA, BAHAMAS
WATER'S EDGE, PALMETTO POINT, ELEUTHERA, BAHAMAS
Water's Edge was all it was described by it's Home Away description, and so much more. The Villa is comfortable and equipped with everything you could ever need in a vacation, and included amenities that are never present in rentals along the East Coast of the U.S. For example, the cottage included thick beach towels, chairs, umbrellas, and snorkeling equipment. These beach items were greatly appreciated as we traveled to a different beach on Eleuthera each and every day, and often needed shade. The bedrooms were large and comfortable, and the bathrooms were modern and spotless. Linens, blankets, and pillows for the beds (and pull-out sofa bed) were abundantly provided, and the washer and dryer were new, and performed flawlessly. Each bathroom was supplied with a hair blow dryer, and large, new bottle of shampoo, conditioner, and body wash. The Water's Edge kitchen is equipped not only with dishes and glasses, but with all of the necessary pots, pans, knives, serving utensils, and serving platters to make your own gourmet meals. This was especially important to our family of five: we traveled with two soft sided coolers filled with frozen meat, chicken, pork loin, ham etc. The pantry area of the kitchen was generously supplied with coffee filters, tea bags, sugar, salt, etc. There was a large number of spices for cooking as well. Finally, the location is ideal. The ocean can be viewed from the lovely large front porch, and the Andarondak chairs on top of the dune were perfect for reading and watching the cruise ships pass by Eleuthera in the distance in the evenings. It is well worth visiting some of the nearby beaches; the coves provide sheltered, gentle, warm water for young children, and with the coral reefs at arms length, the underwater life is a joy to watch. The water temperature was in the high 70sF, and the air temperature was in the low 80sF our entire two week trip. We only experienced one vday in which the no-see-ums were biting, but moving our beach gear close to the water avoided any bites (on all other days, a nice, warm breeze kept the biting bugs away). The beach at Water's Edge is on the Atlantic side, which can be rough in some spots, but our children had no difficulty playing in the relatively low waves. Our children also had great fun catching (and releasing) small lizards and hermit crabs that lived in the sand and plants of the Water's Edge colorful garden. Overall, Water's Edge was a truly wonderful place to spend a restful, fun, and restorative holiday.

Wonderful Villa on Eleuthera Island
Wonderful Villa on Eleuthera Island
It was our first trip to the Bahamas and we were looking for a warm place to relax and have fun with our son and his girl friend. Waters Edge was the perfect place for us to enjoy time together and to "meet the Bahamas." We went to the beaches during the day and in the evenings we enjoyed dinner at the local restaurants (very nice!), played board games, and watched the stars (lots of stars!) The Villa is well equipped with a complete kitchen, barbecue outside, board games, cable tv, dvd players in each bedroom, and air conditioners in each room. The Villa was very clean and well furnished, excellently maintained. Its locations is great, with easy access to both the Atlantic and Caribbean waters. Villa caretakers Ada and Doyle were friendly and always helpful. We recommend a stop at Ada's gift shop at the Green Thumb Nursery on Banks Road. Ada is a talented artist whose pieces range from the whimsical to the absolutely beautiful and are all very reasonably priced. We also recommend a short walk at the nearby Leon Levy Preserve with its tropical flowers and fascinating information about the local ecology. We had a great vacation at Waters Edge and highly recommend it!

Perfect Place to Stay
Perfect Place to Stay
We loved Water's Edge and had a spectacular vacation. First, the location is perfect - down a nice sand road, very peaceful and North Palmetto is an adorable hamlet, more low key than Governor's Harbor but still close enough to take advantage of GH stores etc. Also, very close to Banks Road and Tippys, French Leave beach (stunning) etc. Holly and Jim were very easy to communicate and work with - a real pleasure. No issues at all. The house was IMMACULATE when we got there. We also had requested some food so we wouldn't have to cook on arrival - highly recommend doing this, it was delicious. Also, the housekeepers (we never met Ada but we ate her food!) were wonderful - Doyle even drove over one night b/c we couldn't figure out the DVD player! So nice! More than anything - you can wake up in the morning, have tea on the porch, take a dip in the ocean 50 yards away or hop in your car and drive 5 minutes to possibly the most beautiful beaches in the world! Great value for the money. We would return in an instant if it were just 4 of us again (but we have a larger family so might not be able to....). Highly recommend this property.

Waters Edge Villa – Our 3rd Visit
Waters Edge Villa – Our 3rd Visit
My wife and I stayed at Waters Edge Villa for 8 nights in May 2012. This was our 4th trip to Eleuthera and we have stayed at Waters Edge Villa 3 times. Our other visit to Eleuthera included several family members and we needed a larger home. There is a reason we continue to book Waters Edge on our trips to Eleuthera. It is a beautiful home, well maintained, and a great value. Jim and Holly, who own Waters Edge, have provided everything necessary for wonderful vacation. The house itself is located on one of the best beaches in Eleuthera. It is a short walk over the dune to access the beach. On the dune is a deck with chairs that affords one an awesome view of the Atlantic. This area of the beach is also a great place to snorkel. The coral is still pristine and the reef fish are abundant. If you prefer the Caribbean beaches they are a short drive away. Ten Bay Beach is a beautiful Caribbean beach and it is a 7 minute drive from Waters Edge. It is a great beach to check out the sand dollars, starfish, and a few bonefish. Bring your camera! Waters Edge is also centrally located in North Palmetto Point. Governors Harbour is 15 minutes away. In Governors Harbour you can get groceries and they also have several liquor stores. Tippy’s Restaurant and Sunset’s Restaurant are also located in this area and they have delicious dinners. Don’t forget to try the conch fritters at Tippy’s – yummy! Both these restaurants are located on the beach. If you prefer to cook your own meals, Waters Edge has all the amenities that you will need to prepare your dinner. The new gas grill is a wonderful addition. The house itself is perfectly set up for 2 couples, a family, or just the two of you. On one visit we brought our 14 year grandson and he had his own bedroom and bath. The kitchen opens up to the living area and all the rooms look out to the Atlantic. In the summer months the AC is a welcome addition. The outdoor shower to wash off the beach sand is also a great feature. Doyle and Ada, the caretakers for Waters Edge, are there if you need them. Doyle will meet you at the airport with your car rental and give you any information that you may need to make your visit to Eleuthera an enjoyable one. My wife and I have been very fortunate to have made many trips to the Caribbean and to the Bahamas. We have had the opportunity to stay at several different island villas. Waters Edge Villa has become one of our favorite destinations and we would highl

We stayed at this lovely home June 12-22. We can not say enough about how perfect this cottage is. The place is very equipted with everything you need. Even down to a fully stocked spice rack in the kitchen which came in handy when cooking dinners nightly. The beds were comfy and we slept like rocks every night. The best part of the house I would say is the endless reefs that run along the beach. By far the snorkeling at the house was the best that we experienced anywhere on the island. Can not wait to return!

Owner response: Thank you so much for your compliments. We try hard to make sure our house is a "home at the beach" for our guests. Please come and visit us again soon. Holly and Jim
Highly recommend this location for your stay on Eleuthera but make sure you rent a 4 wheel drive as the roads are rough (but fun for kids). Waters Edge is centrally located so you can easily adverture off to other parts of the island. House is very well maintained and has all the necessary amenities for a fun filled vacation. Beach in front of Waters Edge is a snorkel haven. Highly recommended it at low tide when the sea is calm. Also recommend the tidal pools closer to shore for younger kids.

Owner response: Since you visited, the road to our house was partially paved!!!! It is smooth as glass almost all the way and then it turns to sand. Nothing like before. No need for a 4wd unless you want to go exploring everywhere. Of course that is the beauty of Eleuthera. Please come back and see all the changes to the house and the roads. Holly and Jim
