The property includes the beach, dune, and the yard behind, with the house situated 50 steps behind the dune.
The house is a casual beach cottage, and if you're anything like us, you'll find yourself spending what little time you do spend indoors on the big screened-in porch. Because we built it as a full-time residence, the kitchen wasn't an afterthought but is large and fully functional.
There is a master bedroom with it's own bathroom and a second bedroom and bathroom as well. There is a very comfortable twin daybed on the screened-in porch and another in the central room adjacent to the kitchen.
On the beach we've put in two partial-shade chairs permanently anchored in the sand. Nice at any time, but particularly with morning coffee or watching the sunset with cocktails.
The beach itself is one of the finest on an island of great beaches, with beautiful white sand flats and the picturesque cay just offshore. When you type in 'Gaulding Cay' on VRBO you find pages of rentals, but as our headline reads, only 3 rentals are actually on Gaulding Cay Beach. It says something about the appeal of the beach that so many link to it.
We never discourage anyone from exploring Eleuthera, particularly first-time visitors, but if your intent is to stay put, relax on the beach and in protected waters, you can't do better than Bahama Time.
