Great Beach and Water: The pink sand beaches and clear waters of Eleuthera are world famous, and the beach at CaresAway is among the best on the island. The broad, gently sloping beach is a great play area for even young children. Nearby reefs provide walk-in snorkeling and diving opportunities. Hard packed sand is perfect for long walks.
If you would like to look at Google Earth to see the environs of the house, these are the coordinates: 25* 15' 34.77N by 76* 17' 59.50W. You will notice that the sandy beach in front of the house goes out quite a distance into the water for wonderful wading and swimming. This lovely beach is almost encircled by coral reefs, some so shallow that even small children can don a mask and see some lovely little fishies.
Casual Elegance: The house is beautifully decorated inside and out. We particularly enjoy:
• Outdoor dining set and lots of comfy porch furniture
• Unique wooden ceiling fans in every room
• Overstuffed upholstered great room furniture
* Island-style wooden blinds
• Large entertainment center with TV, DVD/CD, blue too the speaker for your own devices, lots of movie classics, games, and good books
* Shaded sea-grape grove overlooking ocean includes large deck, with steps down to the beach
Governors Harbour: The historic Bahamian settlement of Governor’s Harbour is a short drive from the house. As its name implies, the harbor is the focal point of the town. Freight and passenger docks occupy the end of Cupid’s Key, a 19th century library with internet room sits on the tree-lined street that hugs the harbor wall, and Victorian houses overlook the sea. Small shops and restaurants provide most anything you may need and a chance to enjoy conch salad, fresh grouper, peas-and-rice—or just a hamburger. Night life centers around Tippy’s or 1648 seaside bars and restaurants. Consult our Elusive Beaches of Eleuthera book and explore multiple beautiful beaches within minutes of our house. Or make a day trip to Harbour Island, stopping at the The Cove for breakfast before renting a golf cart to explore the lovely village of 'Briland.' Or head south to Lighthouse beach, near where Nassau cruise ships drop off passengers for a few hours at the beach--but you can spend all the time you want!
