Property description

Casuarina Bay is an exceptionally beautiful, secluded hideaway on the island of Eleuthera, in the Bahamas. Just two lovely houses share this very private protected bay on the Atlantic, skirted by miles of pink sand beaches.

Easily accessible, Casuarina Bay is just one hour by air from Fort Lauderdale, and only seven miles from Governors Harbour airport. It is located 1.5 miles northeast of the quaint village of Governors Harbour, one of the oldest settlements in the Bahamas.

The house affords spectacular views of the Atlantic Ocean, amidst a picturesque grove of coconut palms, colorful hibiscus, fragrant frangipani flowers, sea grape and Casuarina trees.

Ocean-lovers will find some of the best snorkeling, scuba diving, and swimming in the world. Underwater visibility is up to 100 feet, with water temperatures ranging between 70 and 80 degrees Fahrenheit.

More information and many more photos are available on our website. The link is located at the bottom of this page.


The adventurous traveler can explore nearby islands and virgin coral reefs, swim with dolphins or exotic tropical fish, or charter boats for world-class bone or deep-sea fishing. Other sports available on the island include golf, tennis, and surfing.

This beachfront vacation cottage is built of cedar in an open hexagonal design, with a high ceiling and a sleeping loft, ideal for children. Eight arching windows provide magnificent views, and open onto a wrap-around deck with ocean views. A/C unit installed. There is a thatched cabana on the beach with comfortable lounge chairs.

Perfect for a honeymooning couple or a small family, this rustic Round House is charmingly and comfortably furnished, and has been described as 'the hidden treasure of Eleuthera'.

This is the perfect place for the adventurous traveler and for those who enjoy taking in the exquisite beauty of this magical island.

This 110 mile long island offers many fascinating places and deserted beaches to explore. The quaint island of Harbour Island is 1.5 hours away; Nassau and Paradise Island are 20 minutes by plane. The village of Governors Harbour offers a variety of restaurants, bars, food, liquor, gift shops, a cinema, hotel, post office, clinic, dive shop, and car and bicycle rentals.
Spend days walking or lazing on secluded pinks and beaches or exploring the coast with our ocean kayaks.

Snorkel for hours right in front of the house on the pristine coral reefs. Catch your own lobster and feast on them while watching the full moon rise out of the ocean. Awake to the gentle sound of the breeze rustling through the coconut trees.
