About the property

House-3 Bedrooms-2 Baths-(Sleeps 2-6) - Icemaker - Water Cooler - Scuba Gear


'Leisure Lee' your home away from home - nestled between the deep blue Atlantic Ocean on one side and the Caribbean on the other. Our lovely home is situated high above sea level and surrounded by lush tropical landscaping and stunning views of the ocean can be seen from every room. Cool tropical breezes are enjoyed throughout the home and for those warmer summer months, all rooms are air-conditioned. Enjoy the kitchen which is beautifully equipped for in-home dining and entertaining. The sunrises and sunsets are spectacular from the wrap around balcony where you can sit and enjoy your morning cup of coffee or your evening cocktail under the stars that appear close enough to touch.

'Leisure Lee' is a private, spacious and fully furnished 3 bedroom 2 bath home ideal for families, couples and honeymooners, situated in Rainbow Bay minutes away from its own private beach, its sparkling white sand and crystal clear waters perfect for kayaking, shelling, snorkeling and fishing. Rainbow Bay also has its own Private Restaurant and Tennis Courts so come on over, sit back, relax and enjoy your stay at your vacation home in beautiful Rainbow Bay.

There are numerous places to visit and see on the Island of Eleuthera such as Preacher's Cave - a magnificent subterranean cave situated at Hatchet Bay that gives the appearance of a vaulted cathedral that is more than one mile long with stalagmites and stalactites that gleam in torchlight.

The Glass Window Bridge in Gregory Town - This is an unbelievable site where the deep waters of the Atlantic almost meet the calm seas of the Exuma Sound on Eleuthera's leeward side by as little a distance between them as 30'. A truly remarkable sight that has to be seen to be believed.

Surfer's Beach where those of you who love the sport of surfing can enjoy this area that many 'experts' compare with Hawaii's best spots.

Just off the North coast of Eleuthera is Dunmore Town, Harbour Island, the oldest and most charming Settlement in the Bahamas home of picket fences and warm friendly people and a winter home to many of our Rich and Famous.

You must come and join us at Friday evening's Fish Fry at Arthur's Beach in Governor's Harbour - music is always supplied with dancing in the street and is a perfect opportunity to meet with the locals and fellow visitors. Grilled or deep fried Chicken and Fish are the usual dishes to be had and the wonderful rum drinks are a must.

Rainbow Bay Club, the Laughing Lizard, Billy & Brenda's, Tippy's, Buccaneers, The Beach House and Sunset Inn - great places to kick off your shoes, have a great meal and enjoy the beautiful Island of Eleuthera.

There are numerous other places to see in Eleuthera some of which are Ten Bay Beach in Savannah Sound, the Ocean Hole in Rock Sound, Light House Beach in Bannerman Town and the world famous 'Haynes Library' in Governor's Harbour.

Don't take our word for it - come and see for yourselves what a beautiful place this is - we know once you come here you will fall in love with our home and our Island and the warm, friendly people who live here.

Transportation available. Rates on request. Car Seat for baby/child up to 80 lbs. also provided.

Why John W. Lee chose Rainbow Bay

The location - minutes away from four of the most beautiful Settlements in Eleuthera - James Cistern and Governor's Harbour to the South and Hatchet Bay and Gregory Town to the North. Private beaches, tennis courts and restaurant - Shops, Grocery Stores and Utility Companies all in close vicinity.

What makes this house unique

We love the wide open views of the Atlantic Ocean and Caribbean Sea. The colours of the sea are breathtaking. The wonderful sound of the rain on the roof - so soothing. At night, the stars seem almost close enough to touch. It is a truly tranquil place to spend time away from the hustle and bustle of the City.

Great views. Great location. Well appointed. A/C is the best on the island.

  • 5 of 5

Our family spent 7 days here and have not one negative thing to say.

Everything you need is in this house and you're centrally located for all of the best beaches and close to grocery and convenience stores.

The caretaker, Freddie, came and made sure we were set up. The homeowners provide every appliance and luxury needed.

This is one of the few places on Eleuthera where one can see both the Carribean and Atlantic at the same time.

We cannot wait to return!

The view is the first thing that takes your breath away when you venture onto the wrap around balcony. Water - everywhere. It didn't matter the weather - the view was exquisite.

The home is clean and simple ... makes you feel completely at home away from home.

We would definitely come back - if only for the amazing view!

Leisure Lee is an Eleuthera gem!

  • 5 of 5

We were a party of five spending a week in Eleuthera and could not have chosen a better place to stay. Not only are the owners extremely responsive and accommodating but the same goes for their house manager, Mr. Ferguson, who will attend to any of your needs or answer any questions you may have during your visit. The views from Leisure Lee are spectacular, it's location on the island allows for convenient travel in either direction and the villa is well-appointed with beach needs (coolers, towels, etc.) , kitchen tools, gas grill, name it, it's probably there. Would highly recommend and we would definitely stay here again in the future.

We hope you and your family will come and stay with us again some day soon and look forward to welcoming you back. Please give your lovely daughter a hug for me and tell her she is always in my prayers. All the very best to you all. The Owners

Perfectly relaxing!!!!

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I have been visiting Eleuthera for the past 12 years. We had the pleasure of staying at Leisure Lee this year and will definitely rent here again. There are four sets of sliding glass doors in the main room that not only lend to spectacular views of the Caribbean AND the Atlantic but also give you a cross breeze that is very refreshing. The owners have taken great care to provide top of the line linens and towels and the kitchen was as equipped as well as mine is at home. Also, Mrs. Lee was extremely efficient in corresponding quickly to all of my e-mails, answering all of my many questions!!! We highly reccommend this wonderful Villa to anyone wishing to visit the beautiful Island of Eleuthera !!!

Still waiting for our security deposit to be returned

  • 3 of 5

This house has a good location, great views, plentiful linens and towels, and a reasonably equipped kitchen. When we rented it for three weeks in February 2017 two of the four a/c units were not functioning correctly. After the repair person got them operating by manual resetting, they ran but did not respond to the temperature and other settings on the remotes. The owners' initial reply to this and to the non-functioning of the a/c in their car, which we also rented, had been that everything was fine when they some departed some days prior. We did not request a return of the rental fees for the house or the car. (In fairness, they did offer to refund the balance of the car rental if we found another one, but they did not offer to let us drive their other car, which was sitting unused in the garage.) We have now on several occasions requested the return of our security deposit, but have yet to get an affirmative response to that request.

Owner's Response: DAMAGE/RESERVATION DEPOSIT – a damage/reservation deposit of $200.00 is required. This must be received within Seven (7) days of booking the reservation. The deposit automatically converts to a security/damage deposit upon arrival. The deposit is NOT applied toward rent; however, provided certain provisions are met the deposit is fully refundable within (45) days after departure:- You were given the option to find other accommodations and receive a refund of the unused portion of the rental but you chose to stay. You left on Mar 01st. 45 days would be Apr 15th or later.The refund was sent today Mar 21st to arrive 03/24. The car was topped up with Freon coolant and cools perfectly as it seems that was all that was needed. We have replaced the units in the bedroom and family room with brand new ductless units and they do an excellent job. We are quite sure that you will find the type of facility and transportation that suits you should you return and we wish you the best. Regards
