Guestbook comments from the owner

Our family of 15 (8 adults and 7 grandchildren ages 7-13) had a spectacular vacation spending the week of Thanksgiving, 2013 at The Five Palms Beach house in Eleuthera. The home is spacious, beautifully decorated and equipped with everything you need (cards, games, movies, videos and plenty of books. We enjoyed long walks on the beautiful private beach and used the Hoby Cat, surf & boogie boards and all the beach toys. Everyone of the staff members could not have been nicer and extremely helpful even the gorgeous beach was raked and cleaned every morning.

We took advantage of the detailed guest book having fabulous & fun dinners at the local restaurants (take extra cash since many do not honor credit cards.) Beryl cooked us scrumptious meals especially her homemade cinnamon breakfast buns and a delicious fresh lobster dinner!! Beryl was also extremely helpful in planning our weeks schedule.

The older children and fathers had a fabulous scuba exhibition with Al. All of us thoroughly enjoyed our day with Flipper starting with cracking the fresh stone crabs at the pool then devouring them for lunch. Flipper then took to another beautiful private beach for snorkeling.

I could go on & on with many more reasons not to miss a trip of a lifetime staying at The Five Palms Beach House.

Many thanks to Susan Keeler and the Schmauder’ s for their continued support and help before and during our vacation!

Best Home on Eleuthera!

  • 5 of 5

I can't say enough about this home! Before arrival, the owner was accessible and accomodating. After arrival, the caretakers of the property were friendly, helpful and made us all feel at home and very pampered! We had several dinners at the house, which were delicious and affordable for a large group.

The home is in an ideal setting. Great snorkeling, miles of beach to yourself, and every beach toy invented. There is really no need to ever leave the house!

The interior of the house is clean and well maintained. The decor is beachy and beautiful. The kitchen has every item one would ever need. The beds were comfortable. It is apparent that a lot of thought and love went into the home.

We have stayed in four homes on Eleuthera, and this one far exceeds all of the others in location, service and unexpected "extras" that helped us create wonderful family memories!

Fantastic home for a large group!

  • 5 of 5

This house is incredibly well suited to families. Right from the start Susan made sure we had all we needed for the various ages of children that we were bringing with us. From cribs to high chairs to stair gates for the small children and kayaks, snorkels and a volleyball net for the large children, everybody was taken care of. Having the beach and ocean at the front of the house and the pool at the back of the house was amazing! There were so many board games movies and activities to do so the 10 children we brought with us were always busy. Having the use of the 12 passenger van was fantastic as well. What we loved the most was how remote the property was. There were no neighbours close by and we didn’t feel like our group of 18 people was disturbing anybody when we had a family volleyball game on the beach. As well, this house is meticulously maintained. Everything was spotlessly clean and extra help came in to keep it that way. I would highly recommend this property.

Incredible Island! Wonderful House!

  • 5 of 5

We had a party of 11 staying at the 5 Palms Beach House in early March, and we couldn't have asked for a better experience. The property itself is amazing, and if you're looking for seclusion in a spectacular setting, this is the place to be. The snorkeling immediately off the beach is incredible, and the further you venture out the more amazing sea life you'll find. Over the course of a few days, I discovered octopus, rays, spiny lobster and tons of tropical fish. There are plenty of options for fishing, too, though chasing kids around consumed most of my anticipated fishing time. If you're seriously pursuing fish, and specifically bonefish, there are a number of recommended sites, but right off the docks in Tarpum Bay is a great place to start.

The layout of the house is ideal for multiple families. We had three families and never felt like anyone was crowding anyone else. I'd highly recommend this as a destination and home for vacation.

If you're looking for a bustling scene, this is not your spot, but if you want to have a beach and ocean to yourself in a spectacular setting, you can't beat it. My family is already planning our next stay at the 5 Palms Beach House!

Fantastic Family Beach Getaway

  • 5 of 5

We have previously rented a half dozen or so homes and this was by far the best experience from start to finish. We were looking for a tropical beach vacation for our family which includes my wife, son and daughter and their spouses and 5 grandchildren ranging in age from 8 years to 10 months.

We have never experienced such thorough pre-contact with an owner as she went out of her way to make sure everything was planned and prepared to maximize our experience.

The house was exactly as described with the best in amenities. For instance, the beds were very comfortable, and the sheets and bedding top notch. Towels in the bathrooms were of high quality as well as all the toiletries needed and of good quality. The owners must love to cook as there was every kind of cooking appliance and tool you could ever need. Lots of glasses, plates of all sizes, bowls, tableware etc. for a large crowd. There was also a supply of basic spices and napkins, paper towels etc. The decorations and the furniture in all the living areas were comfortable and in good shape and an inviting screen porch. The kid's area and TV room in the walk out lower level were unique and enjoyed by the whole family.

The setting was wonderful with a fantastic ocean view and private beach as far as you could see in either direction. The beach palapa was a great place to get out of the sun while watching the kids as well as enjoying an evening cocktail. The beach was sandy and cleaned every day as was the pool and both were well equipped as described on the website.

There is a reef about a quarter of a mile out from the beach which is where the big waves break. So, the surf at the beach is more manageable and better for the kids while still good for bodysurfing and swimming.

Our grandkids enjoyed the pool as much as the beach. It is set behind the house and again has its own palapa and lots of floats and pool toys.

The staff was all very friendly and accommodating and the meals cooked by the house manager were excellent.

I would recommend you fly into Rock Sound airport rather than North Eleuthera as the drive down from the North is long and challenging and the airport is a pain.

We plan on returning as you know the trip has been a success when you 5 and 6-year-old granddaughters are crying because you have to leave.

Wow. Our party spent a week at the property. We enjoyed every minute there. We had everything we could possibly want, and we did not want to leave. The property is very clean and well maintained. Beryl and Julian were present everyday to check on us, help with questions, and give recommendations. Beryl cooked multiple meals for us which were excellent. There was very good communication prior, during, and after the trip. It was a fantastic vacation.

Absolutely Amazing Property!

  • 5 of 5

What a truly great house and exceptional property. I had high expectations, and they were exceeded by the quality of the property, the amenities that were provided and, of course, Beryl (the house manager extraordinaire) was magnificently helpful. We were blown away! There is so much available at the property, but my personal favorite was the great snorkeling right in front of the house. Also, Kalin from Lighthouse Centers will come do a private yoga session right there with the waves in the background. If you want some time in your own private paradise, this is where you want to be.
