Enjoy the perfect beach vacation at WISH. In the very center of Double Bay, and one of only twenty homes actually on Double Bay, this private Atlantic beach front estate is light, airy, and comfortable,, with a large living room and three bedrooms, each with a private bath, directly on the pink sand Double Bay beach. Miles of beach stretch out and the soothing sound of the surf is always in the background. Snorkel the crystal clear waters or take the sea kayaks out. This beachfront villa is in the center of one of the most fabulous beaches in the Caribbean. It is the only home on our three acre property, so enjoy the privacy.

The WISH property covers three acres of tropical grounds and includes 175 feet of private beach. The back of the home has a large lawn leading to the cabanna at the surf's edge.

Wish is convenient to the United States and has island conveniences -- including great restaurants -- much greater than you find elsewhere. Even the New York Times gushes about the the restaurants and beauty of our community.

Go to sleep with the sound of the waves and wake up to the sun coming over up over the sea!

Fantastic Location and Great Owners

  • 5 of 5

We really cannot say enough good things about this house. The location is absolutely perfect - easy to find, super close to Island Farm and the beach at Ten Bay, and just a short ride into Governor's Harbour. I would like to say we explored other beaches on the island during this trip, but the beach at WISH is just so stunning that we didn't even try. We walked forever in both directions and only saw three couples the entire time we were there (and they could have been the same people). The entrance to the water is nice and sandy, and there is a fantastic palapa built right on the beach with a hammock and chairs. If it's not terribly windy, there is some good snorkeling not far from shore - my husband saw a sea turtle. The grounds are lovely, there is a huge deck with lots of seating, and the house had all of the cookware, appliances, towels, etc. that you could possibly need. We made all of our meals there because it was just too hard to tear ourselves away from the beach. I especially want to thank the owners for being incredibly responsive to our many questions via e-mail before and during our stay. They were a pleasure to work with, and we hope we can come back soon.

A Wonderful House in the Paradise

  • 5 of 5

We do realize that this review is a loooong overdue...

Please, excuse our lateness. We spent a wonderful week or so at this house. It was our first trip to Eleuthera and the Bahamas. We loved the place and the whole Island so much that we going back there this coming Spring. We are sorry we could not get to the Wish house again, as it is already booked. We would love to go back there again..

Honey and Jim, thanks a lot for the unforgettable vacation we had at your place. The house is great, the location is awesome! We loved kayaks, long early morning walks along the beach (no people there). The beauty of the Atlantic Ocean there is cannot see ocean like that anywhere in the US.

We brought bottles filled with beautiful pink sand back home. Our kids were thrilled to be at the Island. People there are like your best friends, even though they don't know you. We can see now why you chose the Eleuthera and the Double Bay. Everything was great and there are not enough beautiful words to describe our stay there!

Once again - Big Thanks!!!

Grace, Greg, Gabi, Pat and Alex B.

Consider this one

  • 5 of 5

First time to Eleuthera, first time to Double Bay. This property is very nice. Everything you need to relax. Comfortable house, grounds immaculately tropical, pink sand, perfect water, gazebo by the water. Cell phones didn't work well which now that I think about it, was a good thing! I think we saw 5 people all week (other than the fish fry we went to on Friday which is a nice little change of pace for vacationers). Car rental recommended, the owner of this property hooked us up with that was was very accommodating in every other way as well. Enjoy

Relaxing Stay at Wish!

  • 5 of 5

My family and I spent a fantastic week at Wish House on Eleuthera. The home was perfectly situated on the most beautiful, private beach allowing us to enjoy snorkeling, kayaking, beach combing and general relaxation! The decor was lovely and the furnishings comfortable. Loved having coffee every morning at the thatched hut right on the beach. Had a fun time at Tippys for New Years--food was amazing and the music and dancing fun. The Fresh baked cinnamon rolls and fruit from Island produce were a delicious morning treat. the island was refreshingly untouristy. The only surprise--how costly the grocery was! Bring what you can from the mainland to save $$. Thanks again!

About Honey

We were looking for the perfect beach and found it.

Honey purchased this house in 2005

Why Honey chose Governor's Harbour, The Bahamas

Double Bay is a private access community of approximately twenty estate homes with miles of beautiful pink sand beach. Our large three acre lot has not been divided and we enjoy wonderful privacy on the most spectacular beach in the world.

What makes this house unique

Gorgeous soft pink sand beaches that stretch for miles, great restaurants, spectacular sunrises and sunsets, fabulous warm sunny days and tropical nights, easy access to the United States, wonderful friends and neighbors from all over the world

Guestbook comments from the owner

We loved our time at your house and can agree with your claim of Paradise. The path to the beach is very inviting and calls you to pull up a beach chair and never leave. All of us thought your beach and location were the best of any we saw on the island. It was a wonderful adventure and we are relaxed as we return to our beautiful mountains and clean mountain air. Thank you for sharing your this special place with us. We will long remember our time at WISH.
