Overview

About the property

Villa-2 Bedrooms (2K+1TW), 2 bath + Detached Unit-1 Bedroom (Q), 1 Bath

"Finiterre," meaning lands end, is precisely where you will be, with no other land mass between you and the continent of Africa.

The majestic Atlantic Ocean takes on a kaleidoscope of colors throughout the day and the sunrises are sheer delight. The house is perched on a bluff 45 feet above the beach. Enjoy 180 degree views from either the upper or lower decks.

Miles of sugary, pink sand beaches stretch in either direction and most of the time your footprints will probably be the only ones you see. Beachwalks during the day are candy for the eye, beachwalks under the moonlight, are magical.

If you can be lulled into contentment by the tumbling surf of the Atlantic ocean, swimming in the crystal clear water, snorkeling with colorful fish, sipping cocktails on the deck, looking for beach treasures that have washed up, then consider Finiterre a small slice of heaven because it is quietly waiting for you to enjoy.

As of February 2005, a new one-bedroom guesthouse (maximum two guests) was completed that is available to rent with Finiterre for an additional $600.00 per week allowing larger groups to vacation together.

The guesthouse has a beautiful view of the ocean, a small kitchen, an air-conditioned bedroom and a bathroom with shower. We do not rent out the guest house as a stand-alone rental so your privacy is assured if you just take Finiterre for groups of 2 or 4.

Guestbook comments from the owner

It’s hard not to sound repetitive this far along in the book, but here it goes. Our group comprised of two 25 year olds on reading week, two 30 year olds with a 2 year old in need of a holiday and tow 65 year olds enjoying their retirement and wondering how their kids could still be needing money for ice cream so many years down the line. Neeedless to say, Finiterre has met all of our various needs, from a well equipped kithcen, incredible maps, bikes, satellite cable to catch the Olympics in Vacouver, to beautiful grounds. Our highlights from our time here include being the only people at Whitelands beach, takeing the bikes down the road for an incredible snorkeling at Gut Island, and being first in line for fresh bread and cilantro pesto at the Island Farm on Friday morning. Thank you Andrew and Reta for your heartfelt hospitality, local lore and coconut 101 course (they were amazing). Our trip has ended but the memories will last. Cheers and thanks again!Tim & Dawn, Dan & Lindsay, Duncan & Janet Allen….CANADA

Beautiful house with an amazing beach.

  • 5 of 5

We had a great time during our family vacation at Finiterre. The house really exceeded our expectations - it is very bright and full of sun, clean, fully stocked kitchen. The beds are very comfortable, the kitchen is meant for cooking in. We grilled almost every night too. The deck is overlooking the most beautiful beach and we enjoyed stargazing at night. We snorkeled several times a day and took advantage of the kayak provided to get to the reefs that are further off the shore. The owner as well as the caretakers were very friendly and caring, easy to reach and eager to resolve any issues. We are sure to return to this paradise! Thank you Jeri!

Perfect!

  • 5 of 5

I spent quite a bit of time looking for a place to stay for our 25th anniversary trip with our two adult children. The reviews for Finiterre convinced me that it was the place for our family. I have stayed on Eleuthera two other times. Just like the reviews said as we walked through the doors I was so surprised by just how nice the interior of the home was. It is stocked with everything your family will need from kitchen supplies, beach supplies, and even our favorite family game! The house had Wi-Fi so the kids loved sending pictures back home. The beach is amazing! Jeri, the owner, was great to work with and always responded promptly. We got a call from the caretaker Reta to check in on us. We were extremely happy with our stay and are hoping to head back in the future. Thank you, Jeri, for giving our family such an amazing trip, your home is wonderful!!!

Beautiful view and location on the island

  • 5 of 5

The house is perfect for one or two couples--Kings beds in both rooms with adjoining baths. AC has been added to the living room which was a super plus as we have stayed before in the summer and it can get quite hot. Kitchen has all you need. Kayaks, floats and snorkel stuff all there. The caretaker brought us fresh mango he had grown and always there if you need them for directions or help with anything. We have stayed there at least 3 or 4 times and it is always wonderful!

Nice, clean house with spectacular view of the Atlantic ocean

  • 5 of 5

Finiterre is an amazing property! We booked the house based on good reviews but was hesitated a bit because the pictures of the interior didn't look very impressive. It turned out the house is much much nicer than what captured in the listing pictures. It's perfect for a family of 4. We are so happy with the booking. We enjoyed the house and the private beach so much. The home is lovely, it's on one of the nicest beach in the area. The kitchen is fully equipped, the rooms are spacious (and air conditioned) , the beach is beautiful, and the view from the deck is marvelous! Eleuthera is a great island, and the people are so so so nice. Also, Andrew and Reta are such kind people, they are truly amazing. Jeri, the owner, is very nice and very easy to communicate with, she picked up the phone every time to answer our questions. We're in love with the house, the island, and its people. Thank you for a wonderful stay. We will definitely consider staying at the finiterre again on our next trip!

The seclusion is the highlight of Finiterre. We are also centrally located on the island so access to fishing of all types, and water activities are available close by. Kayaking and Snorkelling can be done on a variety of reefs right in front of the house.
