                          Owner info

                          Year Purchased: 1994

                          About the owner: Physician and Neuroscietiest

                          Why the Owner Chose Palmetto Point:
                          We had been sailing for many years in the Caribbean looking for our Island home and by accident heard about Eleuthera. This is what we had been looking for. An Island with beautiful beaches and friendly people.

                          The Unique Benefits at this Villa:
                          Close to the United States with the Bahamian dollar on par with the US dollar. Miles of deserted beaches with gorgeous reefs and small settlements with friendly people. Lots of things to do yet off the main tourist radar. Wonderful climate that is between 70 and 85 all year round. Small restaurants, fish frys and lots of local entertainment yet it is unusual to see other people on the beaches.
