Wonderful house for families or groups vacationing together (you can also rent Hibiscus House next door). Plenty of room for cooking, entertaining, BBQ's, relaxing with a book, sunbathing and swimming by the pool or taking in the stunning views. Across the road is the private beach with turquoise warm waters and a nearby reef for snorkeling. Be sure to Bring your camera to capture the sunsets and sunrises which are different every day.
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. Jimmy can even sometimes be found singing at their famous restaurant - Mangoes!
Penny Vaughan purchased this house in 2002
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.
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.
I believe when the house was new it was probably fantastic. Time and nature has taken its toll. The house needs some upgrades and TLC.
The were dead flies on the floors and most of the windows do not have screens. We found a note that the oven was broken when we arrived which directly affected what we could cook. A bottle of wine was sent over on Thursday ( we arrived the Friday before) to account for the 'trouble'. It would have meant more if either of the Vaughn's had delivered it personally. We enjoyed ourselves in spite of this. The views from this home are beautiful. If returning to Marsh Harbour, I would look for a different rental.
The Palm House exceeded our expectations. Beautiful water views from every room. We even had a stingray swim by during Happy Hour! The house is large and very accommodating. We look forward to staying there again in the future.
We loved our two week stay at this house. The 4 bedrooms with 4 baths is well suited for 4 couples. The views are spectacular and the beach is so easily reached and beautiful that we did not spend any time in the pool. The caregiver, William, is hard working and willing to help any way he can. Snorkeling is so good off the beach that you really don't have to go anywhere else, but a trip to Mermaid Reef is suggested. We rented a boat and were able to keep it right at the owner's dock. There is a pretty spectacular collection of fish right under the dock and we also saw a moray eel and a nurse shark. People go to the bars downtown to see the sunset, but you can enjoy the sunrise and sunset right from your own decks. We enjoyed having the beach toys, comfortable rafts and kayak. We left another raft, a kite and a beach ball for you to enjoy. The WiFi is dependable and the television gets lots of channels, but no one had time to watch. We have rented lots of houses on lots of islands and we are pretty used to what you get. If you are renting for the first time, you may be dismayed that not everything is in working order. We were without phone service for the entire two weeks. It just takes longer to get things repaired. The doors are not sliding easily and the lights for the pool do not work. The owner and/or her caregivers will take care of these things if you ask. We were having too much fun to bother. We would rent this house again. The views alone are worth 5 stars.
We thoroughly enjoyed our visit to the Palm House. There were four couples and each bedroom had sliding glass doors to one of the decks and beautiful views. We used all the decks on different days. The house had plenty of room and was in a great location. The people of Marsh Harbour were very friendly and helpful. It was very clean and had everything we needed. We rented a boat for a couple days and went to the reef and Nippers Beach Bar and Grill on Guana Caye.... beautiful beach with snorkeling. I would highly recommend the Palm house.

Awesome home in an awesome location! Home had exceptional space and was very clean. Views from both sides are incredible. Perfect home and location as we rented a boat and went island hopping throughout the islands. Ray...the housekeeper was very friendly, helpful and knowledgeable. Owner's were wonderful to work with and everything was just very low key and relaxing, which was perfect for us. Also, everyone we encountered throughout our stay was so helpful and friendly! We will definitely be coming back!!!!
Perfect home for large family or four couples. Boat dock right on the property to put your rental boat for the week. Swimming pool to cool off after a long day of boating. Everything you need in the kitchen to cook all your meals right here. Upstairs refrigerator to keep drinks close by upstairs. Wrap around porches to enjoy the cool ocean breeze. Hammock on back porch to just take a long nap. So much more to list! Book this house and you will be impressed.
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.
