Welcome to Bahama Mama! This pristine condition five-bedroom home has constant sea breezes and ocean views in every direction. In addition to a spacious living room, 800' screened-in porch, big sun deck, and 3 bathrooms, there is a huge game/TV room and two other cozy TV and reading areas in different parts of the house.
The lower level has the big game/TV room with a multi-game table (air hockey, mini pool, etc), a full-size ping-pong table, TV, DVD player, and lots of board games. Additionally there is a large bedroom with two twin beds that can sleep four children or be pushed together for a king. This bedroom has a full en-suite bathroom. There's also a pack n play.
The main floor has a gorgeous corner living/dining room with an open, 'chef's dream of a kitchen' that is fully stocked and has 4 bar stools. There are five French doors leading out to the huge screened porch. The indoor dining table seats 8 and the outdoor dining area can seat 12 plus.
Off the screened porch is a vast sundeck with a full-size gas grill and breathtaking views. Also on the second floor is a master-size bedroom with king bed, washer/dryer closet, and a full bathroom off the hall.
The top floor has three bedrooms all with fabulous ocean views. (One queen, one king, and the third with two double beds.) The top floor also has a full bathroom, a computer desk, WIFI, and sitting area with a small TV and VHS player.
'Bahama Mama' is located in a charming community of only seven other stone houses. Wykee Estates was built in the 1940's for the first Premier of the Bahamas as a holiday retreat for his family and staff. Our house is the only home built more recently. It was totally renovated 5 years ago and redecorated just this year.
Wykee Estates has a gorgeous saline pool (very low chlorine) that we share with the other residents, but surprisingly is rarely used. The beach is magical!!
You will probably be the only people not only at the pool but on the gorgeous pink sand Atlantic beach as well. Both the pool and beach are just a few minute walk from the house or a 30-second golf cart ride (two golf carts come with the house).
We are in a great location just five minutes by car from the town of Governor's Harbour and eight minutes from the GHB airport. You can also walk five minutes or take the golf cart down the beach to the Sky Beach Club with its excellent restaurant, spectacular views and infinity pool with swim-up cocktail bar.
We have beautiful landscaping, mature fruit trees, hammocks, swings and tether ball. We have plenty of beach towels and beach chairs and beach umbrellas.
The island is totally kicked back and relaxed. Leave your high heels at home along with your makeup... I don't even wear shoes to dinner. The adults can eat at several great beachfront restaurants while the kids run on the beach and play just steps away from your table.
The town of Governors Harbour has a charming collection of 19th century homes and churches overlooking its historic harbor. where you can buy fresh fish and lobster most afternoons from the local fishermen. Governors Harbour has grocery stores, restaurants, liquor stores, two banks with ATMs, a bakery, gift shops, a dive shop, and a medical clinic. Friday Night Fish Fry in Governors Harbour, a street/beach party that brings together all the tourists and locals with food, drink, and dancing in the street, is not to be missed.
The residents of Eleuthera are so warm and friendly and the island is very safe.

We absolutely loved Bahama Mama! We were ten people altogether and the house couldn't have been more perfect. The location is stunning with gorgeous water views in every direction. The house is so well equipped with everything anyone would want or need while on vacation. The owner and property manager were incredibly helpful and responsive to our every request. Eleuthera is a magical place....we would highly recommend Bahama Mama and Eleuthera to anyone looking for a relaxing and peaceful vacation in a stunning location.
Will be back shortly,we all had an excellent 48 hours.
Great house with very little to desire
We had 3 generations sharing this house the youngest were 2 grandsons, one 4 the other 2.
everyone had privacy with the exception of a single issue. We were urged to shower outdoors
for the sake of the septic infrastructure which we were very sensitive to. We wanted to respect the
owner's wishes but found the outdoor shower challenging because it offered no privacy due to its
lack of a door. I would return if a door were installed, other than that great place.
Bahama Mama house has three full indoor bathrooms, and guests are always welcome to shower indoors. While many guests love the outdoor shower, no guest should ever feel obligated to use it!
LOVED this house
It's taken me too long to post! Our first stay on the island of Eleuthera after many years of visiting Abaco. We were so happy that we choose this house, the location was perfect to be able to tour the north part and south part of the island during our stay - but honestly, our most favorite spot was the beach by the house and making friends with the bartender at Pascals. We had our 12 year old daughter, 18 year old son and his girlfriend (and my husband and I). The house is huge, and we had plenty of room. The golf carts were a huge help, after a day out we got right in them and spent the rest of the day into the evening on the beach (go down the hill, head left and follow the path - you'll find a few little "dirt road" turn offs - those paths lead up a hill, but down the bank is the most amazing beach ever). My son and husband were off shore fishing every night and catching dinner while us girls explored, walked and played in the sand and just enjoyed relaxing. The house has most everything you could need. and the owner was gracious enough to let me buy a soft cooler off her to take fish over to Abaco (which was our 2nd part of the vacation). We only used air conditioning in the bedrooms and we put it on in the late afternoon. We kept the doors open in the living space and only used air downstairs if we were watching TV or playing Jenga (yes, there is board games available too). It's island living and AC can get expensive, so if you don't abuse it and leave it on all day, you can still be comfortable when it counts. Our family had an amazing vacation here. It was a great 1st time to visit and explore the island, we definitely hope to be back to do even more exploring. If so, I'd inquire on this home and it's availability. Thanks to the owner for providing a clean, modern home with pretty much everything you could possibly need. You thought of everything!
Beautiful beach house overlooking the Atlantic
This was a great home for our large family of 6 with 4 small children. Grandparents accompanied us as well. The large tables, both inside and outside, were perfect for large family dinners. The house is fully equipped from beach towels & beach gear to spices and most kitchen basics. The decor is nice. The views are amazing from all sides of the home. There are 2 gulf carts to use and next door is Pascal's restaurant with a poolside bar, very convenient.
Amazing stay in an amazing house
We spent a week at Bahama Mama and it surely was one of the best vacation weeks we've had - after a week in Florida and a couple of days in Orlando, this was the ultimate relax and recreation, and fun and entertainment for the kids... Eleuthera is a beautiful hidden paradise, with magical places like French Leave Beach or Glass Window Bridge and best beaches we've seen - and actually, probably the best one is just steps from Bahama Mama... And when we felt like we needed a bit of civilization, we drove the golf kart for 2 mins and we ended up at Sammy's bar for Sammy's awesome signature Bahama Mama drink :)
It was definitely a great vacation in a beautiful house at a perfect location. Highly recommended and to be repeated...
I am so glad that you loved Eleuthera and even nicer to hear how much you loved our home. It is truly a magical place.
Thank you so much for taking the time to let us know.
Hope you'll come back!
Rent sea kayaks, sailboats, powerboats. There are six different beaches to explore and snorkel off of, all within 20 minutes. Charter boats can be hired to bonefish and deep sea fish. The world famous Harbour Island is a great day trip (45 minutes away). There is scuba there as well shopping, restaurants, and a famous beach. Lots of great sightseeing on this island.
