Property description

Med Point is the best 1 bedroom beach house on the best beach in the best township in Eleuthera. It is a ROMANTIC, SECLUDED AND STYLISH ONE-BEDROOM OCEANFRONT BEACHHOUSE, located on Casuarina Beach and just 100' from French Leave Beach (formally also known as Club Med Beach for the Club Med resort that was located there in the 90s). It is on the point between 2 beaches. No other properies are between it and world-famous French Leave Beach. It is a short stroll to Twin Coves Beach and its superb snorkeling reef. Med Point Beach House is like a lighthouse guarding the north end of French Leave Beach, which is the loveliest and safest beach in Eleuthera. In addition, we are only a 1 mile stroll to the centre of town.
Club Med sourced the best beaches in the Caribbean early in the Sixties, as they were first on the resort scene. They chose French Leave Beach, because it is gorgeous, and has very safe swimming because of all the reefs that protect you from waves. Incredibly shallow and warm, the north end, where we are, is much more secluded than the south end, and as such, amazing for "alone time", and lazy swimming.

Med Point beach house has a huge 1100 square foot teak wrap-around deck facing the beach and ocean, and all the modern conveniences, with a full kitchen, great room, wifi and large sliding glass doors on both sides facing the ocean to maximize your viewing pleasure. It has a KING BED, plus 2 large day beds/sofas in the living room, and a dining table facing the ocean.

The 1 storey house was NEWLY RENOVATED in 2009 by a Governors Harbour's premier designer, with wood floors, Brazilian cherry doors, and white wooden accents. The king wooden platform bed and sofas/daybeds were specially created for Med Point, which has a pale blue and white theme. Comforts include 400 thread-count sheets and Thomas by Rosenthal china. Step outside the glass doors, and you will see ocean spreading away as far as you can see.

There are miles of deserted beaches on both sides, with the famous pink sand French Leave Beach next door. If you love the ocean, this place is it, because you will see, smell, and hear the ocean 24 hours a day. The ocean is right up against our deck, and you can sometimes see grouper fish playing in the surf. Because we are on a point, you can walk the 1 mile to the town of Governor's Harbour, along a sandy road through French Leave Beach.

The drive to Med Point, takes you for about half a mile, on a sandy lane through French Leave Beach, looking out to sea and giant cacti and palms. You will enjoy this splendid view of nature every day, as you go into town.

The famous bar/restaurant Tippy's is close, and there are upscale restaurants such as Sky Beach Club and 1648 Bar and Grill, as well as charming takeouts in Governor's Harbour. we are a walk away from Baccus Fine Foods.

Med Point is also close to Tear Coat Cay, a small island offshore, where you can snorkel; also close to lots of reefs for other snorkeling. The water is gin clear, 100 feet of visibility, and we have seen parrot fish, groupers, rays and other exotic fish. The water is 75 to 88 degrees fahrenheit.

French Leave (Club Med) Beach stretches southward for 1 mile: we are at the northern edge where it is quiet, with fewer tourists. Casuarina Beach, stretches north of us for another mile, and then Twin Cove beach stretches north for another mile or so. All of this can be walked along wide sandy pink beaches with excellent shelling. Or you can jog along the sandy path that is Old Banks Road and have wide vistas of white surf.

The various gardens have coconut and royal palms, hibiscus and oleander and sea lettuce. We have a gardener, Emanuel, who attends to the plants and the beach. Walk off one stairway on the deck and you will stand on a gorgeous coral garden and see the nearby blowhole that spouts 30 feet in the air. Walk off the other steps past hibiscus and palms and geckos onto Casuarina Bay Beach. Turtles nest at night on our beach. Sunbathe on beach loungers and follow the sun around, through the day, on two wide decks.

The house is decorated modernly, in blue and white. Two walls of the house are glass, so that you are bathing in views of blue ocean and surf. There are two huge daybeds/couches for lounging, and a rocking chair to plan for retirement. The kitchen is new, and comfortably supplied, for cooking as you stare at the ocean. Then dine at a beautiful wooden table, staring at the ocean nearby, virtually at your feet. At night, go out on the deck and get a fabulously clear view of the stars. You will hear the ocean all day and night.

French Leave Beach, which you can step onto, is the most famous and romantic beach in Eleuthera. It is very wide, and the water is shallow for several feet, and 25 feet out is terrific snorkelling. Body surfing is fun on windy days in shallow water. Or you can just frolic.

Most people who walk by Med Point, express regret that they are staying elsewhere! They tell us that they would like to spend their next holiday at Med Point.

Christine, the caretaker, can make chicken curry and grilled crawfish and pineapple upside down cake on request. She has worked as a chef at a local restaurant.

Car: Recommended

Med Point is located directly between French Leave Beach, and Casuarina Beach an idyllic, mile-long, pink-sand beach with only one other house on its entire length. The French Leave Beach surf is very mild, protected by a large reef system that parallels the shore. The water is among the clearest in the world. Just offshore from Med Point is an excellent reef for snorkeling, inhabited by many colorful reef fishes.

The town of Governors Harbour, a mile away, has a charming collection of 19th century homes and churches overlooking its historic harbor. Buy fresh fish and lobster every afternoon from fisherman at the town dock, or visit the recently restored Haynes Library, which dates from 1897, for the weekly coffee hour for foreigners. 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, a street/beach party that brings together all the tourists and locals with food, drink, and dancing, is not to be missed.

Med Point is at the north (quiet and more protected) end of French Leave Beach, 7 miles from the airport, 1 mile from the town of Governors Harbour.

Other Activities: Boating, Spelunking, Shopping, Kayaking, Wildlife Viewing
