Property description

The house is built to take advantage of its location on the water with bedrooms and living area facing the ocean. Each bedroom has its own full bathroom. The master bedroom has a king-size bed; the second bedroom has twins that can be converted to a king. Plenty of linens provided. This house works well for 2 couples because of the way it is laid out with bedrooms on each end and a common living area in the center. Bedrooms and living area open to the front deck and water. Each bedroom has its own covered sitting area that joins the front deck. For those who like to cook, the kitchen is well-furnished. Or, guests could elect to have a true Bahamian meal cooked for them at the house by contacting Sue Knowles; her number is posted at the house. Many local restaurants are within easy driving distance to the house. The property offers privacy. Serenity Cove home is tucked back in a cove and sits in the center of three lots, all owned by the property owner. Watch the night life on the water with the help of high-beam lighting that covers the cove area. Ten Bay Beach is one of the nicest beaches on Eleuthera; great for sunbathing, swimming, walking, and snorkeling right from the beach. Vacationers enjoy getting into the water in front of the house for swimming and snorkeling, or going to the beach which is a short 50 yards through the water. Many folks vist the entire island, but say their favorite place is right at Ten Bay Beach! A favorite past time is feeding fish from the deck. Renter has two kayaks available for rent at the rate of $100 per week for 2 single kayaks. The deck on this house is high and over coral rock. We always caution folks with small children. If you are an island visitor, you realize the tiny no-see-ums also love the area. We recommend that visitors who are sensitive, bring needed repellent. Water shoes are also recommended to avoid the sea urchins. The wrap-around deck offers you sun (or not) from 3 locations. Guests have explored this island from top to bottom and have found great beaches to explore. Many folks enjoy traveling south to Tarpum Bay to purchase fresh fish from the docks; wait until mid-afternoon. We recommend reading the guest book for ideas, and also entering your own for others to explore. Directions to the house: On Queens Highway, travel 14 miles south of Governor's Harbour airport; roughly 4 miles south of Palmetto Point. After your pass a small sub-station with transformers enclosed in a chain-link fence (on you right), the road to Ten Bay development will be on your right (about 1.5 or less miles). On right, look for sign that has property owners listed. Follow that road for about .8 mile; the house is on the right; palm trees lining drive to house.

Car: Recommended

The house is located along the coral rock that extends off the beautiful Ten Bay Beach, truly one of the best beaches on Eleuthera. The house is centered on 3 lots, offering privacy for guests and a cove that offers visitors their own aquarium. The island offers services for fishing, snorkeling and diving trips, boating; have a Bahamian meal cooked right in your home! Kayaks are available for rent by owner at $100 per week for 2 single kayaks. If rented, these must be rented for entire stay as kayaks are locked at end of stay. Unique to Eleuthera Island is water taxi access to both Harbour Island and/or the fishing village of Spanish Wells. Traveling North to get to either island, you will pass over the Looking Glass bridge, once painted by Homer Winslow. A must stop for great photos of the cliffs and the joining of the Atlantic Ocean and the Caribbean Sea. Eleuthera is a long and narrow island with beach access roads throughout the island. Guests have found beautiful hide-a-way beaches to explore. The house is conveniently located in the middle (the elbow) of the island which makes it convenient for exploring both ends of this 100 mile island. Each community offers unique restaurants and shopping. The Southern end of the island offers its own unique villages of Tarpum Bay (fresh seafood from the docks), Rock Sound (Blue Hole and nice shopping center), Cape Eleuthera and the pristine Lighthouse Beach. Guests tell us they enjoy exploring the island and coming back to relax on the deck, enjoying the view right in front of them. Directions to the house: On Queens Highway, travel 14 miles south of Governor's Harbour airport; roughly 4 miles south of Palmetto Point. After your pass a small sub-station with transformers enclosed in a chain-link fence (on you right), the road to Ten Bay development will be on your right (about 1.5 or less miles). On right, look for sign that has property owners listed. Follow that road for about .8 mile; the house is on the right; palm trees lining drive to house.

Year Purchased: 1994

Why the Owner Chose Central Eleuthera, The Bahamas:
Our goal was to find an island where we felt safe, and with people we felt were genuinely friendly. After searching many islands in the Bahamas, we found that on Eleuthera. Ten Bay Beach and its surrounding cove area supports an abundance of sea life that feed on the coral. Renters are delighted to watch a variety of fish from the deck. While the island offers a slow-paced and peaceful vacation, a number of restaurants can be found within easy driving distance of the house. Many visitors enjoy purchasing fish from the docks at Tarpum Bay or Governor's Harbour and cooking at home. Grocery stores on the island offer almost anything you need.

The Unique Benefits at this House:
If you are hunting peace and quiet, and you love the beach, and being in the water, Ten Bay Beach is as good as it gets!
