Property description

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.

Owner info

Year Purchased: 1968

About the owner: 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.

Why the Owner Chose South Eleuthera, The 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.

The Unique Benefits at this House:
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)
