Perfect!

  • 5 of 5

I am very familiar with San Salvador, but my travel companions have never visited. So, Whispering Palms is the perfect base of operations for island exploration. And we did it all!

Fantastic getaway

  • 5 of 5

My stay at Sandy Point was very relaxing. The ability to go down to the private beach every morning with my son and go snorkeling was wonderful. The sugar like sand and crystal clear turquoise waters created a picturesque environment to view beautiful fish and appreciate the wonderful surroundings. Sandy Point was a great launching point to explore the rest of the island. I would heartily recommend this whimsical house to anyone wanting to truly disconnect and enjoy the old fashioned art of conversation while viewing some of the most beautiful sunsets I have ever witnessed.

Awesome house & location on the island we loved it

  • 5 of 5

For 15 years we have been renting homes. Nothing compares to the experience we had here in San Salvador at "Whispering Palms". This nce house so close to the beach is a feast for the eyes at every turn and perfectly comfortable for a nice and relaxed beach vacation and to explore and island that is so perfect and easy in the Bahamas that it is hard to believe ther price we had to pay here.

We loved the location of this house and the only neighbor there was. It was so perfect that we had the perfect sport to relax and enjoy the sun and the perfect beach as well as the quiet nights and wonderful sky by looking out the windows and trough the huge front door to watsch cruise ships and container ships go by far out on the horizon. We especially loved the outdoor shower, well hidden right behind the house. It was everything we had hoped for.

We were very much surprised by how well the kitchen was stocked and as the owners show in there pictures, you could look out the ocean and feel the nice breeze coming trough and it was just enjoable how easy life could be on a simple island in the Bahamas and in this nice house we rented. I brought a lot of spices, but wouldn't have needed to as so much was at that house. At the end we had to leave quite a few things behind for the next visitors as almost everything was there that we needed, that is very unusual to see and we could not believe the price we ad to pay for it. I did quite a bit of cooking and loved spending time in the kitchen with that breathtaking view.

The only neighbor of this house was very charming and friendly, we were also invited once for a dinner and had a great evening overlooking the ocean and hearing the stories about the island.

If we'd had more time, we would have extended our stay as it was just so perfect and calm with so much time at an almost "PRIVATE" beach with only once to see another couple there.

We did rent a car for the week we've been on the island as the closest grocery store is a 10 minute ride away from this property.

If we ever go to the Bahamas again, we WILL BE BACK!! We have our 25th wedding aniversary in 2 years and do think to get there again with our Grandkids to explose the Sea and this great island together.

It was the best place that we have ever rented as a vacation home!

Thank you to the Owner for sharing this lovely house, we enjoyed every minute there! You sure have a juwel, well hidden on a great island.

Would highly recommend this property to anyone.

Wonderful Midsummer Vacation Spot

  • 4 of 5

My family and I had a great time at Whispering Palms. The location was fantastic with much to do right outside the door. The beach is one of the best we've visited and we were frequently the only ones there. The house comfortably sleeps four and the kitchen is spacious and well equipped enough to prepare all of your meals.

the day started with a swim in the ocean, right by the house

  • 5 of 5

Started every day with a swim in the Ocean

We were looking for a place to go for the Easter school Holiday with our daughter and I found the listings on the Web for the Bahamas, that we thought would by far go beyond our limit for a 1 week vacation, but could not be more thrilled what we found on here. We were looking for a family get away to just relax and enjoy the blue water. The house was perfect for us. Plenty of space and just a short walk to the beach. And the beach - it was like our own private island. We loved it.

Since I had never been to the Bahamas before I was a bit apprehensive, about staying on an island that has no Highway or any high rise Hotels.

A friendly "Local" was waiting for us after arrival at the airport to get us to the Vacation Home we rented in an easy 15 minute drive. Mr Walker was waiting for us and he also offered us a rental car for the week of our stay, that was a great way to get around on the island and see it all!

All without any hassle and on our flight out, he drove us to the Airport again, after the days on the Island we knew what it means to have some days in a relaxed life.

We had a terrific week there and not any of the many places we have ever been to before! I have told everyone I know that it is my new favorite place to go. I feel like I have made new friends on that Island, everybody greets you when driving by in the car or the only neighbor of that house is so friendly, that we had a nice BBQ together one evening.

This was for sure the BEST vacation home we ever stayed at and the location was at first a concern but after getting there and seeing it in real, we could not believe how beautiful it is. Every morning that beautiful water of the ocean (just as the owner shows on his pictures, actually 1 is from us that we sent as a thank you to them, nice to see this on your listing here now :-) brings back memories).

Thanks again Larry&Erika for letting us rent your perfect vacation home at this perfect place, we all returned home totally relaxed and recharged from a perfect weeks stay at your house by the most beautiful and private beach we ever saw anywhere!

What a fabulous place and that beach .... just amazing

  • 5 of 5

What a fabulous place. My friend and I spent 6 days here and enjoyed everything. It is nice and chosy house, wonderfully furnished and really a home away from home. The kitchen is spaciouse and is well equipped. Living and dining areas are tastefully furnished and provide space for guests. 1 King size bed with the attached master bathroom is bright and has direct access to the garden and patio for a nice coffee outside in the morning! The second bedroom had 2 single beds inside and has it's own bathroom with shower. The Patio with plenty of room for sunbathing and shade in the morning for a relaxed morning outside or just watch the ocean or let the day go by. With the house facing west it offers great sunsets over the ocean as the owner shows in ther pictures, AMAZING!! – That is a pleasant advantage during the cold and dark winter months at home. We could watch the sun rise in the bedroom and set right from the front patio or sitting inside while we had dinner, (of course) with all windows in the house wide open and the very pro bug screens in all windows we did not need an A/C at any day, this was pleasant and felt very healthy! The very close by (about 2 minute walk away) very private and fine sandy beach was an highlight too for this property, UNBELIVABLE for those who have never been here. 2 little grocery stores in town (about 12-15 minutes away by car) is where the life is going on during the day and where to get your supply. This house has a nice and very friendly neighbor as well as the perfect location to enjoy Beach, clistal Clear water and Nature, was our 10th visit to the Bahamas and the 2nd one to San Salvador, but this nice home has won our heart! We will definitely be back!
