We have everything you’ll need to fully enjoy amazing Eleuthera on 10-acres of land with over 400 feet of private swimming pool blue Caribbean direct ocean access, “best snorkeling on the island” per our visitors, caves, and a 50 ft. look-out tower that provides 360-degree views of the Atlantic and the Caribbean. Unique privacy, comfort and great adventures await in your very own 10-acre estate in the center of Eleuthera. This spotless clean, modern, new home features central air conditioning and amenities right on premise you won’t find at any other home.
Enjoy some of the best Caribbean snorkeling right off your backyard! Doesn’t matter whether you are a beginner or advanced snorkeler. You will find living reefs and a large variety of sea life you’d normally need to go several miles out on a boat to see. It truly is like swimming in your own Caribbean aquarium – nothing like it! Just put on swim goggles or a mask and snorkel and feel that blood pressure go down.
On most days it is so calm and clear that you can see detailed reef and fish life just standing over the water. Fins are optional because it’s truly like a swimming pool and you can venture out as little or as far as you’d like, there are coral heads across the entire 400+ feet of waterfront, right near shore, simply amazing! It goes from a couple of feet of depth to about 35 feet deep.
Paradise Pointe features three bedrooms, two bathrooms on 400+ linear feet of calm Caribbean water frontage. It has a bright open floor plan, and is tastefully decorated in light neutral colors. Enjoy infinite water views from nearly every room and lots of unique activities right on the property.
Swim, take nature walks on one of the marked hiking trails, explore large caves right on our property you can stand up in, star gaze and picnic enjoying panoramic island views from our very own three story 360 degree island viewing tower!
For those who enjoy movies, or just want to remain connected, the house also has the latest Roku (offering a robust number of channels for latest news, movies and special entertainment), an activated Netflix account and high speed wireless Internet. There are TV’s with DVD players in the two main bedrooms.
This special property is in a great central location, yet it’s private but you won’t feel secluded, since you will be close to it all including the famous Friday night fish fry! You won’t find a wider array of activities at any other property, including great waterfront swimming & amazing snorkeling, hiking trails, a 3-story viewing tower, caves, and bird watching.
Cook dinner on our island-made stone artisan barbeque and dine on our 500+ ft. waterfront dining terrace with ceiling fans.
From the minute you step foot in this beautiful home, you will be greeted with endless views of the Caribbean aquamarine waters from the living, dining, main bedrooms and a sprawling balcony with patio. You'll feel like you walked into a luxury cruise ship! Enjoy incredible sunset views every evening from the balcony, see dolphin frequently, while enjoying the breezes. The magnificent star-lit skies at night will take your breath away.
High-end Comfort and Amenities: The house is spotless, bright, and contemporary with high-end plush luxury bedding in all of the bedrooms.
The fully equipped kitchen features state-of-the-art stainless steel appliances and granite throughout. Bathrooms have showers with excellent water pressure, with marble and natural stone flooring and granite countertops. And there is a separate laundry area with a full size washer and dryer.
Flat screen TVs, wireless internet, selection of DVD movies, books, games for the family and endless entertainment options via latest Roku technology.
There’s a picnic area with benches right by the waterfront too. And you'll also find a private outdoor shower for after that afternoon swim or snorkeling adventure.
You may wonder why not stay right on a sandy beachfront home? Well after many years of traveling to Eleuthera, and staying in just about every rental home on the island, we learned that most beachfront homes are on the Atlantic side where the water is normally not calm and at dusk and dawn, there are lots of sand fleas also known as “no see ums.” There so many beaches to explore on the island, that even if you stay in front of one, you will want to see others, there are literally dozens of them and they are all very different.
Also most beachfront homes are built set back behind sea oats and other natural foliage for hurricane protection so waterfront views at most are very limited, many times you have to physically walk out through the foliage to actually see the water, unless the house is 2 story and then you can see the water but only from upstairs. Or if the houses are built on higher elevations, you have to go down very steep stairs to get that sandy beach.
This is why we decided to build on the calm Caribbean side in front of our own natural waterfront aqua-colored pool. When you step into the water, depending on the tide level, it’s just 1-3 feet deep and very protected. Then it gently slopes and just 10-20 feet away from this natural shallow pool, the reefs start where you have one of the best snorkeling areas on the island with a large variety of colorful fish on the beautiful living coral reefs. It is just amazing to find this so close to shore behind your own home.
You can also enjoy hiking through several cleared nature trails and if you want to come up for air, take a walk up Le Mirador, a three story viewing tower where you can enjoy a 360 degree view of the island while capturing full island breezes (a great spot for a picnic!).
We also have our very own historical Caves where island folklore has it that early settlers sought refuge from Pirates in their search for this island of freedom!
This is all available to you without ever having to drive anywhere. Every day can be a new water and nature adventure right outside your door. You are close to dozens of beaches. We have Receivers Beach a couple of miles north on the Caribbean side which is one of the most beautiful beaches on the entire island. This is a shallow beach with white sand and full of sand dollars with amazing hues of colors. Then just less than half a mile away going South, we have one of the best Atlantic side pink sand beaches called Banana Beach which you can access right behind Sky Beach club or if you like to walk, just walk right from the house to the Atlantic side, it’s an awesome 20 walk which we and our guests do all the time.
At the house you’ll find a book called “the Elusive Beaches of Eleuthera” in that book you’ll find just about every beach on the island from north to south and how to get to each, it’s so much fun exploring the different settlements and all of the amazing beaches Eleuthera has to offer. Besides the two right near us, some of our favorites include Lighthouse Beach at the southernmost end of the island and French Leaves beach just a few miles away on the Atlantic side, both pink sand beaches.
There is no place like Eleuthera, it is truly magical, and we hope you enjoy it as much as we do.

About the owner: Experienced global travelers, beach and Island connoisseurs, seeking freedom from stress as close to home as possible and finding it in beautiful, magical Eleuthera
Why the Owner Chose Governor's Harbour, The Bahamas:
Eleuthera is a Greek word that stands for 'freedom' and that is exactly the feeling you have when you visit this beautiful island and its wonderful people.
The Unique Benefits at this Guest House:
Close to to the US, yet a pace that is 50 years back in time, in an unspoiled paradise. We built this house from the ground up on a very unique spot on the island. We wanted privacy, yet we wanted to be close to the best amenities and establishments on the island. We found this amazing spot, where you don't feel you are in the middle of nowhere too far from everything yet you have the best of that world too in a central island setting with unparraleled views, swimming and snorkeling right at home.
