About the property

2 bedroom/ 2 bath, Ocean views with 2 kitchens and air conditioned

Completed in 2014, Cloudbreak is a beautiful, bright and airy 2 bedroom/2 bath home which is fully air conditioned. Our home can also be divided into an upstairs/downstairs duplex. The downstairs is available as a beautifully appointed studio with full kitchen, modern appliances, inside full bath with walk in shower and outside shower area and it's own washer and dryer. The downstairs front porch has a garden view and is perfect for listening to the morning song birds. The upstairs is available as a separate rental which is a 1 bed/1bath apartment. The upstairs has front and rear porches with tongue and groove high beam ceilings. The view is 360 degrees of the Atlantic and the Exuma Sound. The upstairs has an additional full kitchen, large bathroom with walk in shower, and it's own washer and dryer. The two are connected by a private covered stairwell which allows the flexibility of being rented as a 2 bedroom/2 bath home or separating the upstairs from the downstairs. All our floors are turquoise, blue, stained concrete. This gives you the illusion of walking on water. We have designed our home to be surfer, snorkeler and fisherman friendly. We have plenty of porches for lounging, storing and rinsing whatever beach gear you may have.

Our home has brand new Mitsubishi slim AC units in all rooms.

Kitchens include: Microwave, oven/stove, coffee maker, dishwasher, refrigerator, crock pot, blenders, rice cooker, pots/pans, silver ware, dish ware, and more.

Sleeping arrangements: Downstairs has a queen bed and a queen futon in the TV area, sleeps four. Upstairs has a private bedroom with queen bed and a queen futon in the open living room, sleeps four. Families are always welcome.

The best deal is renting the whole house.

Extras: Guest cell phone (self pay), 2 person kayak, cooler, beach chairs.

Car rentals: Please contact us for information. A rental car is highly recommended to see the island and get the most from your vacation. We are 5 miles from the nearest store.

Airports: We are in between the North Eleuthera Airport and the Governor's Harbour Airport. We are thirty minutes to either one. Check with United, Silver Airways, American, and Bahamas Air. There are direct flights from Ft. Lauderdale and Miami, Florida.

Connections from Nassau can be made please call us for assistance.

We have made our home an oasis to be enjoyed. Come be our guests.

Why Thomas McDevitt chose Eleuthera

After having young adult dreams of building a home on Eleuthera, we worked hard to accomplish our goal.

In 2009 we looked for vacant land to build a home and found a incredible lot which most Bahamians say is the highest lot on Eleuthera. THE VIEW!!!

What makes this house unique

THE VIEW!!! and THE BREEZES!!! The beaches and local Bahamaian culture keep us coming back. We love the laid back lifestyle.

  • 4 of 5

We were a bit surprised to be on the first floor in one room 4 people without view as the upstairs with view and deck and private space was empty

Kind of put a kink in romance ; not a good one

Other than that lovely house

Owner's Response: Hi Alijah, Thank you for being our guests. We appreciate that you took wonderful care of our studio. Next time the whole house might be a better fit for your family. When you made your reservation it was for three people and for the downstairs studio. We would have gladly changed you to the upstairs apartment if you had let us know that would have been better for you. From where you made your original reservation we have three listings: whole house, upstairs or downstairs studio. We do not like to push a more expensive reservation on our guests. We will try in the future to make sure that all our guests know all of the options. We appreciate your feed back. Kind Regards, Maureen and Tom

Unbelievably awesome with stunning views!!

  • 5 of 5

This trip to Cloudbreak was to celebrate our 20th wedding anniversary and it was amazing. The home was beautiful, the views spectacular, and close to Surfer's Beach. I was able to paddle out on a perfect day with perfect waves. I knew I had caught the right day when it was myself and only five locals riding the waves. The home is perfectly decorated with all the modern conveniences, if you need them. We really liked the sliding screens that kept the bugs out and the cool breezes blowing, not that there were many bugs. With the concrete construction, hurricane windows and doors, I thought to myself, "I would have no worries if I was to be staying here when a hurricane rolled in". With the home's location, it was perfect for our love of adventure and it easy to explore. We have only been back in Florida a few days and we are trying to figure out when we can get back!

Cloudbreak is located on the highest point at Surfer's Beach, Eleuthera Island Shores. The first floor is 194' above sea level which allows a view of the local flora and fauna. From the Second floor porches you have a 360 degree view of the Island, a true ocean view. Sunrise and Sunset is a daily experience. Cool breezes and stunning views of the colorful Atlantic Ocean are on one side and on the other side Exuma Sound. This local enclave is the closets residential neighborhood to Surfers Beach. A wonderful reef break known to be one of the most fun and consistent breaking waves in all of the Bahamas. Some surfers describe it as a perfect left. Do not despair if surfing is not your thing. When the waves lay down the swimming and snorkeling are exceptional, not to mention the shear beauty of the rolling pink sand beach. Cloudbreak Bahamas will transport you to the ideal beach adventure or romantic get away that you have been dreaming of. This wonderful beach is a 15 minute walk on nature trails.

What makes us different:

Eleuthera Island Shores is an eclectic community of musicians, artists, expats and local Bahamians. You can rent a board from a local surf school down the street. The labyrinth of trails out your front door will always let you experience nature at its best. Surfer's Beach is a great place to start but Holiday Beach, Hatchet Bay and James Cistern also offer some world class surfing within a 20 minute drive. Fishing is a big draw to the island. Both pole fishing and spear fishing can be done at Surfer's or off any beach that you may find down any road off of Queen's Highway. Gregory Town is where you can shop, have a beer and mingle with the locals. Eleuthera is the place if you love gin clear blue water, deserted beaches, unusual views and vistas and crazy beach combing. It is not the place for night life, gambling, fancy bars or resorts. Our home is the perfect place to immerse yourself in an out of the way island life and experience the rugged, raw beauty of the Bahamas. This is the place to get away from it all. An adventurer's spirit is required.

What's available from the locals:

Gregory Town has two groceries, two gas/fuel stations, several snack shops, two liquor stores and the following restaurants: Unca Gene's Bar and Restaurant, Daddy Joe's, and the Cove when you feel like spending some money. Surfboards can be rented from Rebeca's Straw market from Pony Tail Pete or Tom Glucksman at Surfers Haven. There are also some good eats at the Rainbow Inn in Rainbow Bay and down further in James Cistern at Kel D's. There is always something for everyone except fast food.

During the first week in June you have the Pineapple Festival and Pineapplthon in Gregory Town. For a great Day Trip you can catch a water taxi to either Harbour Island or Spanish Wells. The 'Bat Caves' are a mile away from our home on Queen's Highway for great spelunking. Eleuthera Is. Organics is opening a farmers market in Gregory Town for fresh produce. Fresh fish can be found at many of the docks through out the island. The Levi Botanical Garden is a must in Governor's Harbor along with the Friday night fish fry. The Lighthouse point is an all day adventure that should not be missed. Along the way don't forget to stop in at Ocean Hole in Rock Sound. On all of your adventures never, never forget your snorkeling gear, a beach and reef are always near. If you need to rent snorkeling gear see Mr. Pete in Gregory Town.
