Property description

Eleuthera means freedom, and freedom doesn’t get much better than this: a spacious and beautiful waterfront home on a private silky sand beach with calm, shallow, turquoise water and a view from the front deck you have to see to believe. Seemingly afloat in the shallow, clear water, a small island named Gaulding Cay awaits your exploration and provides a great view, especially as the sun sinks into the sea at sunset.

Gaulding Cay Beach is an isolated beach with glistening white sand, surrounded by fragrant pines. The snorkeling is great, and its privacy lends a special enjoyment to swimming, boating, reading in the hammock, and sunbathing.

This newly-constructed (2009) five-bedroom house has a 50-foot deck overlooking the sea and white beaches. The spacious deck is furnished with lounge chairs for sunning and tables with umbrellas for dining.

Inside the house, the 1400 s.f. great room (including living area, dining area and kitchen) has soaring ceilings and a view of Gaulding Cay and Gaulding Cay Beach through a wall of French doors and tall windows. This open, elegant space greets you with a comfortable living area with a U-shaped couch, entertainment center with flat-screen satellite TV, and a view of the sea that never quits.

The dining area, also with views of the sea, comfortably seats 10 at the wooden table and is adjacent to a raised stone countertop with three bar stools for additional seating.

The kitchen features stunning stone counter tops, plenty of cabinet space, and all the modern amenities. Stainless steel appliances include a 5-burner gas cooktop, a wall oven, microwave, refrigerator/freezer, dishwasher, and deep country sink, to facilitate the needs of guests, chefs and staff. The kitchen is fully equipped with all the accoutrements needed to prepare your culinary delights including blender, toaster, coffee-maker, crock pot, and a selection of spices and seasonings.

Just outside the kitchen area is a charcoal cooking grill for your barbecue and grilling selections. The laundry room with washer and dryer is conveniently located adjacent to the kitchen.

The four airy bedrooms (and a lovely den that can readily serve as a fifth bedroom) are perfect for two families or five couples. The two matching master bedroom suites have beach and ocean views. Lie in bed in the morning and watch the sun sparkle on the sea, or view the stars at night from your bed. French doors open to the front deck overlooking the beach and Gaulding Cay. Wander outside for a morning cup of tea or an early swim. Step out at night and stare in awe at more stars than you have ever seen. The two master bedrooms have spacious en-suite baths. The stone-tiled bathrooms are equipped with large glass showers, pedestal sinks, and wardrobes for your clothing storage.

The two guest bedrooms have French doors opening onto private decks with ocean views. These two bedrooms share a central bathroom similar to the master baths. The beds are twins that can be converted to kings; just let us know and we’ll have them ready for you.

The fifth bedroom is a den with views of the sea and wonderful breezes blowing through the room. It is furnished with twin beds that can be converted to a king. Then den has a curtain over the doorway rather than a door.

Amenities at the Cay House include WIFI, flat-screen satellite TV, air conditioning, ceiling fans, beach chairs, beach towels, and a two sea kayaks.

We also rent boats on the island, and have a good selection of boats for you to choose from, including sailboats, power boats, and canoes. Just let us know what you need and we’ll give you a price. The sea in front of the Cay House is typically calm and ideal for boating.

The Cay House is located just two miles from the picturesque fishing village of Gregory Town. Gregory Town is home to the best gift shop on the island, featuring handmade art and crafts from around the Bahamas. Gregory Town is also the home of Thompson’s bakery, famous for its pineapple tarts and coconut tarts made fresh every day from home-grown fruit. Groceries and gas are available in town. Nearby restaurants and night spots include The Cove, newly renovated and featuring continental cuisine with Caribbean flair and an infinity edge pool. The Laughing Lizard is a gourmet sandwich shop and art gallery. The Rainbow Inn is famous for its steaks and fresh vegetables from its organic garden. It offers live entertainment several nights a week, and is frequented by the island’s favorite musical celebrity. Also nearby is Daddy Joe’s, a local bar and night spot just down the road. A 15-minute drive takes you to The Bluff, which has the biggest supermarket on the island. A 20-minute drive plus a short water-taxi ride takes you to Harbour Island, with its many restaurants, shops, and straw market. Governor’s Harbor, half an hour away, has numerous beach restaurants.

Eleuthera is famous for its 100 miles of spectacular, deserted beaches. The island, home to just 8,000 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. We hope you will enjoy the Cay House, and experience all our island has to offer.

  • The Cay House is wonderful for two families, or one big one. There are two beautiful master suites with large, lovely bathrooms. From bed you can see the sea or watch the moon set over the sea. French doors open to the front deck overlooking the beach and Gaulding Cay. Wander outside for a morning cup of tea or to go for an early swim. Or wonder at the stars and the Milky Way at night. We've watched Sky Lab cruise across the sky at night! Back to the bedrooms...there are two additional bedrooms which share a full bathroom and a deck of their own. A den, which has twin beds has views of the sea and wonderful breezes blowing through the room. Then den has a curtain over the doorway rather than a door.
