About Penny Vaughan
Jimmy and Penny have been coming to the Bahamas for over 50 years and now spend most of the year here. They also have a home in London, England. Their daughter is a Life Coach and lives in London and their son works in finance and lives in New York. They often have friends and family visiting from around the world and love to entertain.

Penny Vaughan purchased this House in 2002
Why Penny Vaughan chose Marsh Harbour
Penny's father used to manage the British Colonial Hotel in Nassau and she used to teach water skiing there and has been in love with the Bahamas ever since. When she married Jimmy they decided to buy a beach house in Marsh Harbour which proved to be so wonderful that it has now become their family home.
What makes this House unique
The fact that Eastern Shores is on a peninsula means you have the sea on both sides of the house, this allows for magnificent views both day and night. It is a magical place and a not so well kept secret, we hope you enjoy every minute as much as we do.

A slice of heaven
I cannot say enough great things about the Palm House. The house is laid out perfect for large groups or families! The two living areas, wrap around decks, pool, and each bedroom having a bathroom beside it keep everyone comfortable. Each room has it’s own beautiful view! The dock and beach are very convenient.
We snorkeled and kayaked right in front of the house.
The location of the house is also great. There’s a private gate at the end of the road that leads to the peninsula so it feels very private. It’s a short drive to restaurants and Maxwells. There are also so many great places a short boat ride away (Hopetown, Mermaid Reef, Tahiti, Tiloo)
We needed assistance with a few things—not regarding the house, and the property manager was very helpful!
I can’t wait to come back to this slice of heaven!
Thank you for your very lovely and detailed description of PALM house.
Hope to see you back soon
All the best
Wonderful place and vacation!
We absolutely loved our time at this house! Perfect location, beautiful home, and it was just as pictured on the site. Penny was always quick to respond to any questions and very helpful! We will definitely be back!
Thanks for your wonderful review of PALM and HIBISCUS houses. You weathered the storm so well, thanks for your understanding. Mother Nature can get very angry sometimes.
Hope to see you again next year.
Palm House location is beyond words. Ocean and pool are beautiful and the views are breathtaking. We wanted rest and relaxation and this delivered.
Emily you are without the best renter anyone could have. Thank you for leaving in spotless as always
Eveything all in one package!
You can't help but tell yourself you made the right choice when you arrive at the Palm House! The location is awesome for convenience yet secluded enough to make you feel like you are not "in the city". The property is huge and spacious. Whether you are a pool person or prefer the beach they are both a matter of steps away! the owners and Caretaker are extremely responsive and care about making your stay special. It's the perfect large family, multiple couple and friends property. Bring your own boat or rent one locally and tie it up behind the house, couldn't be more convenient!
Palm House Extraordinaire
This was our 2nd stay at Palm House and it continues to fulfill all our wants and needs for an Abaconian vacation. The property managers are readily available to deal with any issues, and their handyman, William is a pleasure to know. You want plush, go to Atlantis. You want island atmosphere and tranquility, come to Palm House.
Thank you Ronald.
I think you have described Palm House and Abaco brilliantly.
Hope to see you back again shortly.
Palm House is located on a private peninsula with the sea on both sides which allows for stunning views. There is a private beach for sunbathing, swimming, snorkeling, watching sunsets and it has been known to spot dolphins swimming by! We highly recommend renting a boat to experience all the islands, some are inhabited with picturesque houses, fun restaurants and bars, others have nothing to offer but pink sand and palm trees - the choices if yours.
