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

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.

Wonderful, spacious house

  • 4 of 5

Even better in real life than in the photos! The house is spacious, comfortable, and clean, and has the best-equipped kitchen I've ever experienced in a rental house. We enjoyed the bikes, the gas grill, the view from the deck, the beach, and Andrew's delicious cherry tomatoes. Its location is convenient to everything on the central part of the island and the house is set far away from the road. The beds were very comfortable. The only (minor) downside is the tiny shower in one of the bathrooms - we all ended up using the bigger shower. I'd stay here again in a heartbeat. Thanks to Jeri, Andrew, and Reta for a great stay!

Owner's Response: Thank you for your review. Comments from our guests are always useful in letting us know where we might fall short or if we are on the right track to make your stay a memorable one. When we purchased the house in 2000, there was only one bathroom and we converted a tool closet into the bathroom. I wish I had a bit more room to work with when converting it. We hope to have you return some day!

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!

Perfect as always!!!

  • 5 of 5

This year was our fifth straight year visiting Eleuthera and staying at Finiterre. We absolutely LOVE our adventures exploring the island, and often times can't decide where to go each day because of the many beautiful beaches, but we never think twice about where we stay each year...FINITERRE! We consider the owner, Jeri, our friend at this point, if only by email, but still nothing but a pleasure to communicate with. Andrew and Reta, the caretakers, have become so dear to our hearts as well. They make us feel so welcome each year and check on us several times throughout our stay. Finiterre is looking more beautiful than ever! Every year when we return, we see upgrades and special touches that make the home even more perfect than the year before. We can't recommend Finiterre enough! It has every amenity one could want and maybe, THE most spectacular view from the deck of any home on the island. Thank you Jeri, Andrew and Reta for yet another perfect vacation!!!

Awesome home and location

  • 5 of 5

Let me begin by saying Eleuthera is our favorite destination lately. We have visited 4 times in the past 5 years and this was our second stay at Finiterre. The owner has made numerous changes/improvements to an already great property. The house was immaculate, well stocked, very comfortable and clean. It is very secluded and offers wonderful views off the deck. Plenty of beach toys, beach chairs, umbrellas, etc as well as 2 kayaks and bikes. You can walk the beach for hours and often never see anyone. Best "Bang for the buck" on the island. Centrally located so you can explore both ends of the island. We'll be back agin soon. Thanks to Andrew and Reta (Caretakers who make you feel like friends, not clients) and to Jeri (Owner) who was so accomodating and anxious to make sure our return trip was as great as our first..

Owner's Response: Thank you Tom for your kind and supportive words. We try very hard to make sure the property is always fresh. It is a labour of love to maintain a home on the sea. We also to add or modify some piece of the property to have our repeat guests enjoy a new experience in a familiar place. I hope you consider us again should your vacation plans return you to Eleuthera. It was a pleasure to have you as our guests
