Overview

About the property

2 Bedroom, 3 Bath Beachfront Property

Thereabouts is a family-friendly vacation rental just steps from one of the world's most beautiful beaches. This isn't the Bahamas of casinos and five-star hotels, but the real Bahamas: gorgeous beaches, snorkeling on tropical reefs, fishing, lounging in the sun and, perhaps best of all, solitude.

About Chuck Eaves

Hi, my name is Chuck Eaves. My father built this house in the late 60's and my family and I have enjoyed it ever since. The house was completely renovated in 2012, all new windows and doors, central air, Kitchen and baths modernized. My wife and I live in South Florida and spend as much time as we can at Thereabouts. It really is a very special place. I know that you'll agree once you've visited.

Chuck Eaves purchased this house in 1968

Why Chuck Eaves chose Bahamas

Thereabouts is situated on the most desirable section of Winding Bay—one of Eleuthera’s best beaches. Just a few yards from “the cut”—a tidal connection to nearby Half Sound Bay and in the lee of Joseph’s Cay, the pink sand beach at Thereabouts slopes gently into gin-clear warm water. Thereabouts is one of only a dozen homes on Winding Bay and most of the year, it feels like a private paradise.

What makes this house unique

Thereabouts is a short walk to one of the most beautiful beaches I have ever seen. In addition to sunbathing and beach--combing, nearby reefs offer amazing snorkeling and Bay fishing year-round. Bone fish are regularly seen and caught in Winding Bay, Bonefish Creek (behind the house) and Half Sound Bay (at the far end of the cut)

Great time in a great place

  • 5 of 5

I would love too call this place home. He hosted a good amount of people and it was super roomy. We called it the little house with a big feel. Great diving and bone fishing within walking distance.

Charming spot and a great and communicative owner

  • 4 of 5

The house is remote and quaint. All the desired comforts in an absolutely remote beach setting which is what my family strives for. This is our second year renting the house and we have already reserved it again for 2017/2018. Thank you Chuck. H. Ingram, Pittsburgh, PA.

Beautiful beach and water

  • 4 of 5

We rented this house for four weeks in Jan/Feb 2016. The location couldn't be better. Steps from a beautiful light pink sand beach and warm, calm turquoise water. The house is close enough to Tarpum Bay and Rock Sound that quick trips to the grocery stores were possible. This was our second trip to Eleuthera and we loved it more than the first. The people are so friendly and the island is so laid back. You quickly discover what "island time" means. The house itself comes equipped with everything that you need (including soap for the washer) and air conditioning. It does not however have a dishwasher or TV. Not really a problem just FYI. The owner was very easy to work with and has done a good job updating an older home. The only negatives were that the furniture is very old, the greenery in front of the house has become too high to see the water easily and we felt the rental rate was too high when comparing this property with others available on Winding Bay for a similar rate.

Excellent Stay

  • 5 of 5

This is a beautiful place to stay- the beach, the bay, the people! It was a pleasure working with both the home owner and the care taker of the home while we were there. Communication was timely, friendly, and informative. We'd come back here in a heart beat!

Brilliant Family Vacation Rental House

  • 5 of 5

We love-love-loved this house overlooking Winding Bay in Eleuthera. I'd never been to the Bahamas, but was looking for a low-key, comfortable, relaxed rental home where my family could get together and have a private vacation. We found it ! The house is nicely outfitted with everything you need - all the amenities and comforts of home. But within yards of the most beautiful beach you've ever seen. Pink sand, crystal clear water, great for swimming, shell collecting, snorkeling on a beautiful little coral reef, birdwatching, boating, wind surfing. And we took excursions into the small towns nearby to gather fresh seafood and supplies, check out the fun little restaurants and do some site seeing.
