About the property

House on Caribbean Sea, 3 Bedrooms, 2 Baths, (Sleeps 6)

Our waterfront home has a magnificent view of the Caribbean Sea. Totally secluded, it's merely steps away from the crystal clear water. The elevated porch offers panoramic views of Balara Bay, Cupid's Cay, Levi Island, unbelievable sun rises, and spectacular sunset vistas.

Caribbean Blue has an open, airy feel to it and is tastefully decorated in a tropical decor equipped with all the amenities to ensure a comfortable stay. The house has three bedrooms: 2 masters with attached bathrooms and a third bedroom with twin beds that convert to a king. Enjoy paradise lounging beside the seaside, sipping a frozen concoction as the aquamarine water soothes your soul.

Easy access to the water is available from the property for fabulous snorkeling on Balara Bay. There is fishing right off the property for grouper and snapper. Levi Island is directly across from the house and is one of the island's bone fishing hot spots.

Governor's Harbour is a small, quiet town on the Family Island of Eleuthera, offering a collection of distinctive colonial homes, historic churches, and colorful Bahamian buildings.

You will find all the services you need in town: grocery stores, gift shops, post office, banks, gas station, dive shop, liquor stores,internet cafe, and bakery. There are also several good local restaurants to chose from and a few local bars.

There are no casinos or flashy nightclubs on Eleuthera; the island has a sedate, relaxed atmosphere.

The island of Eleuthera is 110 miles long and is, on average, only two miles wide. The entire island is ringed by spectacular beaches, most of which are hidden and totally secluded.

There are many interesting settlements up and down the island. In addition, you will be able to enjoy fabulous fishing (deep sea and bone fishing), snorkeling and scuba diving, shelling, or you can just relax on the elevated porch.

Wonderful getaway!

  • 5 of 5

This home is lovely! The views are amazing! Kitchen was well stocked and had anything you might need. The location was great for taking day trips and exploring the island. The house was very clean and well taken care of. Chad- the caretaker- was so sweet! Had a wonderful beach close by (French Leave). Had several great places to eat!! Felt safe. Very friendly people on the Island. The Friday Fish Fry was a lot of fun! 1648 - I think it was called and Buccanear's are very close and great food! Bakery in Governor's Harbour was very good! The house was very private and beds were comfy! Our family had a wonderful time!! Made memories of a lifetime!

Relax, Relax, Relax!

  • 5 of 5

Spent a week at Caribbean Blue and it was wonderful! We were four women, all in our 60's, and felt VERY safe the whole time. The house is well appointed and Kerry was so easy to work with. Private location with easy access to Governor's Harbour for shopping and restaurants as well as several local hot spots dotted up and down Queen's Highway. We spent our days under the palapa and our evenings on the screened in porch. The photos do not depict how nice the house is or how beautiful the water is. We had dolphins off the shore almost every morning and starfish in the rocks every evening. Our purpose was to relax and recharge and Caribbean Blue did the trick! The house would also be great for couples or families. We're already looking forward to next year!

Incredible quick trip with family

  • 4 of 5

The visit was exceptional, visiting from Colorado and S. Caroline two moms w/ two boys (12 & 13). Barry and Shad the care takers were so nice and the home was in great condition and super clean. Loved the central location easy to get to things and into Governors Harbor. The setting is super peaceful and private, loved it! We had no idea where we were going and never had been to Eleuthera and felt the location of the home was perfect and easy to get around. Barry and Shad met us at the airport (rent a car from them!) short drive to Caribbean Blue. Tippy's is a must and the beach it is on (French Leave) is gorgeous. Hope to come back and will recommend to friends! Thank you for such a nice home and all the great amenities. Do not plan on using wifi never could download but was a nice break for us!

Love this place!

Eleuthera is fabulous, and so is Caribbean Blue. We have stayed there twice now and highly recommend it. The house is stocked with just about anything you could want.

wonderful private getaway!

  • 5 of 5

We had a wonderful time at Caribbean Blue ! We have traveled many years , and stayed in many rental homes all over the world.We can say, The owners have taken the time to be sure all your comforts are met, and that you are made to feel like it truly is your home away from home.The caretakers are just a call away,made it very easy to pick up/and return car/house keys, and where there to answer /help with any thing you needed. We will very likely return in the future!

Thanksgiving in Paradise

  • 5 of 5

Our family spent Thanksgiving on Eleuthera and celebrated our father's 86th birthday. The house sits just a stones throw above the Caribbean Sea and is so secluded it was as if we were on our own private island. When not exploring the island, we enjoyed relaxing days snorkeling right in front of the house, fishing, kayaking around Levi Island and sitting under the palyapa watching for the "green flash" as the sun set into the sea. Mornings started out with coffee on the porch watching for dolphins and we also ended our nights on the porch counting the falling stars in the crystal clear sky, light pollution is not a problem!!

The island itself is amazing, so easy to find your very own secluded beach to spend the day swimming, snorkeling, relaxing and beachcombing for treasures. Governors Harbor is a short drive from the house and has several grocery stores and places to eat. Not to be missed is the Friday fish fry and street dance, where you will get to experience the Bahamian culture and people.

The house itself is beautiful, with a well-equipped kitchen, comfortable living quarters, and nice sized bedrooms. The owners have organized all kinds of detailed information about the island from what are the nicest beaches to where the best places are to eat. They really have thought of everything to make your vacation at Caribbean Blue remarkable and one you will never forget. The booking and reservation process was very easy, they truly make it a breeze to enjoy their little piece of paradise.

We hope to return, there are so many more beach to discover, enjoy and explore with Caribbean Blue as home base.
