About the Property

2BR Oceanfront Vacation Rental Ten Bay, Bahamas

Playa de Papaya is a private oceanfront house on the family island of Eleuthera, Bahamas. Eleuthera greets its visitors with pink sand, crystal clear waters, and little traffic. The island is 120 miles long, and offers lots of places to explore, and the locals are very friendly. This is a one of a kind place.

Playa da Papaya comes fully equipped for all of your basic needs. Special features include a wrap-around deck, a waterfront palapas, air-conditioning, and satellite TV. We have a washer and dryer for renters' use downstairs in the garage. All linens are provided, and the kitchen has all basic appliances including a microwave & coffee pot. The front of the property has many fruit trees, that are loaded with papaya, avocado & mango during their peak seasons.

The house is located along the coral rock that extends around the corner from the coveted pink sands of Ten Bay beach. The house shares a secluded 3 acre lot with Casa Amarillo (our families other property, both available for rent), offering privacy for guests and a cove that offers visitors an exquisite view at sunset not to mention watching as the fish & rays swim by. The island offers great fishing, snorkeling, diving trips, kayaking and boating. You can find tour guides easily on Eleuthera!
The Governors Harbour library offers book exchanges and WiFi/internet packages as well.

Eleuthera offers water taxi access to both Harbour Island and/or Spanish Wells. Traveling North to get to either island, you will pass over the Looking Glass bridge. A must stop for great photos of the cliffs and the joining of the Atlantic Ocean and the Caribbean Sea. The house is conveniently located in the middle (the elbow) of the island which makes it convenient for exploring both ends of this 100 mile island. Each community offers unique restaurants and shopping. The Southern end of the island has Tarpum Bay (fresh seafood from the docks), Rock Sound (Blue Hole and nice shopping center), Cape Eleuthera and the pristine Lighthouse Beach (4-wheel drive or a tour guide is recommended for this one) at the southern tip of Eleuthera.

Directions to the house: Travel on Queens Highway, travel 14 miles south of Governor's Harbour airport; roughly 4 miles south of Palmetto Point. After your pass a small sub-station with transformers enclosed in a chain-link fence (on you right), the road to Ten Bay development will be on your right (about 1.5 or less miles). On right, look for sign that has property owners listed. Follow that road for about 1 mile until the road forks at a light pole. Take the left hand fork, up the hill. The property will be on the right at the top of the hill, it has a low stone wall on both sides of the drive way. Just follow the drive straight ahead and Playa de Papaya will be on the left, waterfront.
Rental cars are highly recommended as the closest grocery & restaurants are 4-5 miles away, and the larger selection of stores & other towns are 10+ miles.
The island of Eleuthera offers 3 airports. Governors Harbor (GHB) is in the center of the island and only about a 20 minute drive to our home. We ask that you try to fly into this airport so that our caretaker can meet you upon your arrival and escort you to the house. The other 2 airports are Rock Sound Airport (RSD) at the Southend of the island, and North Eleuthera Airport (ELH) at the North End. Both are about 1 hour away from the house. All 3 airports have some strange schedules, so be sure to look at available flights when you are deciding on what days to book the rental home. Some people have to switch days of the rental to accommodate the flight schedules…we’re totally used to it.

Looking for an extended family-reunion type of vacation? Consider renting Playa de Papaya and Casa Amarillo (#147029) together. They are on adjacent lots, each with a 120 foot ocean frontage. The cost for either property is the same, base rate of $1100/week per house. For $2200 you get two houses with a total of four bedrooms, four bathrooms, and accommodates up to 10 people.

If you want peace, beauty, and relaxation, Eleuthera has it all!
