About the Property
House, 4 Bedrooms, 4 Baths, (Sleeps 8)
Surf Song is a much loved home, elegantly furnished in a relaxed manner. Upon first arriving you will notice the fresh water splash pool – the perfect place to cool off after a day of island exploring. Once inside, the large octagonal living room is the center of activity where people gather for meals and conversation. A fully equipped kitchen and entertainment center will satisfy any desire. Each of Surf Song’s four bedrooms has its own bath. Two bedrooms are furnished with king size beds; the other two have two twin beds each.
Our housekeeper, Winnie, arrives every morning with fresh flowers to clean and tidy up. She is sure to make your stay comfortable and worry free.
Located in the exclusive community of Windermere Island, you are invited to be a guest at the Club at Windermere during your stay. Member owned, the Club is open from late November through mid May. During peak periods, lunch and dinner are served in the dining room, and other activities, such as pool-side buffets and West Beach barbeques are held. Club facilities also include a game room and lending library. A large pool and two tennis courts are available for use year-round.
Windermere Island sits just off the Atlantic coast of Eleuthera near the settlement of Savannah Sound in central Eleuthera. Accessible by a guarded bridge, Windermere is 5 miles long with a beautiful wide pink sand beach running its entire length. On the west side of Windermere, West Beach allows access to the calmer waters of Savannah Sound, known for its many acres of bonefish flats.
If your idea of a luxury vacation is to relax in a tropical island home, away from the crowds and off the beaten path, then Surf Song is the ideal location for you, your family and friends.

Windermere Island is centrally located on Eleuthera, which makes it an ideal home base for exploring all that Eleuthera has to offer. The two major towns on Eleuthera, Rock Sound and Governor’s Harbour, are each about a 25 minute car ride. Many of the island’s best stores and restaurants can be found there (or somewhere in between).
The best advice I can give anyone traveling to Eleuthera is to rent a car. The true beauty of the island can only be experienced by exploring its many pink sand beaches. The water on both the Atlantic and Caribbean is crystal clear and full of life.
My personal favorite is Lighthouse beach, which makes a great day-trip as it is situated on the southeastern point of Eleuthera, about an hour south of Windermere. It has great reefs for snorkeling and miles of that beautiful pink sand. Pack a picnic and go. You may be the only one there. Another favorite that is closer is Ten Bay Beach. On the Caribbean between Savannah Sound and Palmetto Point, Ten Bay is a long, shallow beach that is perfect on days when the wind is from the east. Great for kids, just shuffle your feet through the sand and you’ll be sure to find a sand dollar! These are just two of the multitude of beaches that define Eleuthera’s coastline. Some are well marked, others less so. Get in your car and go.
Besides its beaches, here are a number of interesting thing to do and see during your visit:
Fishbone Tours, Savannah Sound – Let Capt. Bubba (aka Julius Rankine) take you on a tour by boat of Savannah Sound and show you parts of Windermere Island you never knew existed. Fish, snorkel, and catch turtles.
Oceanview Farm, Governor’s Harbour – Ever wanted to ride a horse on the beach? Now’s your chance to scratch that off the bucket list.
Leon Levy Native Plant Preserve, Governor’s Harbour – Only a few years old, the preserve contains botanical treasure of native plants, good displays and easy walking trails. There are remarkable water features, and beautiful views. You will gain a real sense of Bahamian history here.
Ocean Hole, Rock Sound – The Ocean Hole is world renowned. Come feed the multitude of fish that live here, swim and snorkel. This naturally occurring blue hole is over 600 feet deep.
Island Farm, Palmetto Point – Your source for fresh produce, fresh baked breads, jams & jellies, dressings & pestos, honey and hot sauce. Yum!
Tarpum Bay Pier – every day (weather permitting) the fishermen bring their catch back to the dock at about 2-3pm. Fresh grouper, snapper, lobster and the “catch of the day” are available for purchase. Nothing tastes as good as fresh fished cooked and eaten the same day it was caught.
Bonefishing, Everywhere – Whether you wish to do-it-yourself or hire a guide, Eleuthera has numerous bonefishing flats where you can try your skill.
This is just a small sampling of the fun things to do and see on Eleuthera. Let us know what you are looking for and we will try our best to point you in the right direction.
Year Purchased: 1989
About the owner: My family and I have been vacationing on Eleuthera since the 1970's. After falling in love with the island we purchased a 2 bedroom condominium at Windermere, which was frequently visited and enjoyed for many years. When our sons got married and started having children we built our dream home on the Windermere beach: Surf Song. Please reach out with any questions about Surf Song or Eleuthera. We can help arrange rental cars, fishing and snorkeling excursions, recommend restaurants and things to do and see.
Why the Owner Chose Central Eleuthera, The Bahamas:
Spectacular view and proximity to the beach. Also has a pool. House lives and entertains beautifully. Four bedrooms ( two of which are masters) all with en-suite bathrooms. Expansive great room with dining provides ample seating and an unbeatable view.
The Unique Benefits at this House:
No home on Windermere is closer to, or has a better view of, its beautiful pink sand beach and the Atlantic ocean. Come enjoy the Surf Song!
