Baycienda (Bay-see-en-da)- Your hacienda on the bay.
Baycienda is sprawling four-bedroom, three-bath villa on the bay of North Eleuthera, directly across the road from the Atlantic Ocean. The bedrooms are separated from the expansive Great Room by a covered patio as well as a very large open patio. The home has a dock and comes with a 17' foot, center console boat. Baycienda is located one mile south of Harbour Island and Historic Dunmore Towne, first settlement and first capitol of the Bahamas. Harbour Island has one of the 10 Best Beaches in the world according to 'Islands' magazine. Bedrooms totally separate from the living area make this property ideal for large families, parties, or small business conferences. The property is very private, located in secluded whale point, making it ideal for romance as well as quality time.

About Tom Jones

What makes this House unique
COMPLEMENTARY CAR, DOCK USAGE, AND BOAT WITH $500 BOAT DEPOSIT We want to make sure our guests have a full and fun experience and get to explore all that North Eleuthera and closely neighboring Harbour Island have to offer. This is a very unique offering that regulars will tell you, you will not find anywhere else. Harbour Island is one of the top 10 beaches in the world, but the music stops at 2 am, and the roosters start at 4 am. Baycienda offers seclusion and serenity within a 10 min beautiful boat ride from Harbour Island. Snorkeling is great right under the dock. There is a small pool that is perfect for a dip or for cocktail hour.

The perfect vacation
We had a fairly large group of 9, including 4 kids, and there was plenty of space for all of us. We really enjoyed being right on the bay, the warm water, the kayak, the paddle boards, and so much else. The house came with a boat and Tom instructed us on how to use it. Overall, I could not have wished for a better vacation.
Baycienda is an Amazing Location, Absolutely Wonderful Experience! with an Extremely Helpful Host!
Our Family of 9 totally enjoyed our one week stay at Baycienda in Whale Point in June 2017. From the time we were greeted at the Airport by Tom Jones we were made to feel welcome in his Waterfront Home! He has a wealth of knowledge of the Bahamas and everyone on the Island knows him. The property is just as represented on VRBO. The sea life right at the dock was amazing. We snorkeled with turtles, numerous types of fish and a couple of nurse sharks. My grandchildren ages 6; 10 and 18 all were amazed and felt very comfortable swimming right off the dock. We also explored a lagoon just a few minutes away that was amazing. It could be reached by wading in the water or taking the paddle boards which the owner provides, also a big hit! We used the Suburban to travel to the Supermarket as we prepared most of our meals. We did venture out to The Glass Window Bridge Bar & Grill a couple of nights for dinner which we also thoroughly enjoyed and our Big Night out was at Daddy Joe's with Live Music on Sunday night. Another plus was the use of the Boat. We traveled by boat to Harbour Island and spent some time on the Beautiful Beach there and purchased some fresh fish for dinner. The Fishermen in our group enjoyed a few Fishing trips and caught enough fish for dinner one day. We also explored the Queens Bath and took the ferry to Spanish Wells. Another plus is the small pool located on property and the Spectacular Sunsets! Our family will treasure the good times and memories we made at Baycienda! Thanks Tom!
Home At Éleuthera
The house is very well situated with a beautiful view.
What an experience swimming with turtles and fish.
The owner is very welcoming and sympathetic.
However, the house needs upkeep and could be cleaner.
It remains a good choice for the Bahamas considering the value for money.
What a beautiful place. You never have to leave the house, everything's there. Green/blue Caribbean water with turtles, fishes, starfish right by the dock..few steps from the house. Beautiful sunset and sunrise everyday. The owner, Tom Jones was very helpful.
Do bring bug spray, lots of bugs.
Great secluded property!
Travelled with a group of friends to Baycienda and we thoroughly enjoyed our stay. The included use of the boat and the suburban made exploring simple and fun. Lots of great snorkeling in the bay. Would certainly reccommend!
AMAZING WATERFRONT ESTATE!
Baycienda offers everything a family vacation should: Private Dock, garden pool, right on the bay, boat and car to go exploring. The house is equipped with all of your needs and if you are lucky enough to be there when the owner is in town, you are in for a real treat. He has done and seen it all in the Bahamas! Our family makes this spot a yearly priority!
