OFF THE REEF is a charming, Eleuthera vacation home. It is on a beautiful, ocean front property that gently slopes down to the beach. A private 150 ft. long pathway takes you to this beach. There are stairs near the beach for easier access. Perfect for couples looking for rest and relaxation along with lots of SUN, SAND AND BEACH. Swimming-basking in the sun-fishing-barbecuing on the large patio, snorkeling-long tranquil walks-bone fishing-scuba diving-island tours-bird watching-deep sea fishing-shelling-enjoying all the beach has to offer. TAKE YOUR PICK

Nothing is guaranteed but we have seen Fairy Balet, Bar jack, Queen Angel fish, Trigger Fish, Grey Snapper, Sergeant Major, Nassau Grouper, Yellow and Blue Taff, Clown Wrasse, Stingrays, Barracuda, Blue Angel fish to name a few while snorkeling in front of Off The Reef.

There are so many beautiful, secluded beaches on Eleuthera. Try visiting just a few. Lighthouse Beach on the southern most tip of the island and Whiteland beach on the Atlantic side about four miles south of Rock Sound are especially beautiful. Try getting a copy of The Elusive Beaches of Eleuthera and explore away.

              The Friday evening fish fry in Governor's Harbour is great fun. Spanish Wells and Harbour Island make a good day trip. There are many beaches each one unique to visit and enjoy. The library in Governor's Harbour has a different decor. There is the Glass Bridge, The Blue Hole, and the Preachers cave to visit.

              Kayaks can be rented.

               

              Owner info

              Year Purchased: 2008

              About the owner: We bought Off The Reef for many reasons. But the main reason is that we love Eleuthera. It is a comfortable, quiet way of life. No worries. We visit about twice a year. It amazes us every time we go. You feel like your coming back home each and every time.

              Why the Owner Chose North Palmetto Point:
              WE LOVE IT! It's like living a dream, an unimaginable, unbelievable dream. A dream you will hopefully never wake up from.

              The Unique Benefits at this House:
              The best thing about OFF THE REEF has to be the view. SPECTACULAR! Miles of beach for enjoyable, long walks. The snorkeling is something else. Lots of beautiful marine life very close to shore. Do not forget the sunbathing, shelling, fishing and swimming too.
