North Palmetto Point house description
This lovely panoramic-view ocean-front home is located on a bluff overlooking the Atlantic Ocean, but right on 1200 feet of secluded, unspoiled, private beach. Ideal for privacy, beach-combing, skin-diving, fishing and snorkeling, yet not far from golf, restaurants, town, etc. The welcoming beach area situated under palm trees has three hammocks, beach chairs, sun loungers, Igloo cooler, as well as table and chairs.
Beautifully furnished, with three bedrooms, Internet access, air-conditioned, two baths with additional outside shower, and modern kitchen. The thirty-four foot living room has sliding doors adjoining the terrace with a breathtaking view overlooking the ocean. The breezy terrace that surrounds the entire house has two large tables with eight chairs and four sun chairs for relaxing.
Round House is totally family friendly and includes a pack-n-play crib to accommodate the expanding family.
A 1989 Cadillac Fleetwood is available for $55.00/day to provide hassle-free transport for your party to town, grocery, restaurants, or to explore the beauty of the island.
Sailboat, motorboat, and airplane rentals are available close by.

Wish i was back already!!
Wish i was back already!!
I had booked this house on the advice of a friend who had also stayed there. All I can say is that I wish I had found this sooner!! The house sits atop a hill with an amazing view of the ocean. I took advantage of the large porch in the mornings while drinking my coffee to enjoy the amazing view. The private beach was second to none and the two neighbors were the only others on the expansive stretch of sand. If snorkeling is your thing there are reefs with in easy swimming distance of the shore. The house was clean with all the comforts of home right down to the bbq grill, although we did eat out most nights at an outstanding restaurant just a few minutes down the road. I should note that my 2 year old son was with us and the house is child friendly. All in all, a great value in one of the best kept secret islands in the Atlantic. We shall return!!!

I had the opportunity to take my 2 teens for a getaway. The island is beautiful, the house was great, the people were friendly. When my kids saw that we were right on the beach, they ran right out and spent hours in the crystal clear ocean - I went as far as the hammock. We swam and snorkeled away each day and relaxed inside in the evenings. Fortunately there was wifi so my daughter was able to maintain her Facebook status! When it rained we indulged in watching the TV, despite my efforts to get us all to read! The caretaker gave us great tips on where to go on excursions and where to get food and drink. Breakfast on the deck was awesome, nothing like taking in the view while starting your day. If our next getaway involves a beach, we know where we are headed!

Beautiful location right on the beach. I had a wonderful time with my family away from all the stress of everyday life. Panoramic views and everything we needed to make our stay great. We will treasure our tiime in the Round House and will go back again.

May stay lasted 2 days, June 9 thru 11, 2011. I have to agree with the earlier "tear down review", add that the sliding glass doors did not slide or lock to the outside, no screens. Lots of bugs and termites flying in house. During a wind and rain storm the whole door frame was shaking, the roof leaked throughout the house, we collected up to 6 inches of rain in pans while wandering in ankle deep water trying to find the circuit breaker to turn off the electricity to avoid electrocution. The circuit breaker was later revealed in a locked closet. We called the owner who said we'd work "things out" because we left the next day. We have yet to hear from the owner after two registered letters sent. Note he does not return deposit or reimburse for terrible conditions.

Manager response: I have expressed my sincere apology to the renters who left this review, their deposit has been returned (months ago) and I have extended my hurricane guaranty to them (free replacement holiday at the Round House for their full 11 day stay) even though the unusually severe storm was not classified a hurricane. The month of June is considered the "rainy" season, and it turns out that the timing and force of this storm early in their 11 day stay, did unfortunately cause some roof leakage. I ensured that things were worked out (i.e. fixed and addressed) once the storm had subsided. Had my guests not decided to depart prematurely, they would have witnessed the reparations I had scheduled and would have gone on to enjoy 9 straight days of beautiful Bahamian weather.
This property is paradise! The beach is in a perfect location and it is a vacation oasis. The house has panoramic views and simple decor. Waking up in paradise each morning was worth it!

The house needs to be renamed “Tear-down” because of it’s condition. Built maybe as late as the 70’s and no remodeling since then. Small sinks and toilets, slow drains, sticking doors (some don’t even open), low water pressure, etc. Nice piece of property is the only good thing to say about it. Note that the car that is “available” is a piece of junk also: hard to start, no A/C, no radio. Oh, and the owner won’t return your deposit either….

Manager response: I was kind enough to allow this guest to enter the property 1 day early, at their last minute request; I always do my best to work things through with my guests. Of course that requires logistical changes regarding housekeeping and such, but I was assured that I would be compensated for my gesture. I was not compensated. The available car was ready (with furnished gas) 1 day early as well. The gas was not replaced at the end of the stay as is customary. The electric used during this stay was over the standard allotted amount. I duly return security deposits when my guests conform to contractual obligations as stated up front, but unfortunately these costs exceeded the deposit amount.
