3BR/4BA 2-story Private Beachfront Estate
About Darby Harris
The owners, Marty and Lynnie Erbaugh, built this beautiful home in 1991 after travelling to Eleuthera for over 25 years. With the help of an acclaimed Bahamian architect, they built a home and retreat they can enjoy with family and friends as well as a place to welcome others. Their three daughters grew up on the bay shelling, playing in the waves and building sandcastles and now they are bringing their children down to experience the beauty and adventures that Eleuthera has to offer. This home has hosted guests from all over the world for the past 15 years and many people continue to come back after their first visit, falling in love like Marty and Lynnie did so many years ago. Marty and Lynnie, and now Marty's daughters, have extensive knowledge about the island and how to make the island experience perfect for you. In fact, one of Marty's daughters got married down on Eleuthera, welcoming 90 guests! We know restaurants, beaches, off the beaten path places to see and more. We can assist with car rental and air fare as well. For all of our guests, we provide a detailed write up that can help you plan your trip. We can't wait to talk to you about Point o'Vue! We love to share stories and hear from all of our guests as everyone who visits has become like family.
Why Darby Harris chose Tarpum Bay
Overlooking the Atlantic Ocean, Winding Bay is a 2 1/2 mile stretch of beach at the south central point of Eleuthera Island. Winding Bay is protected by Joseph’s Cay, which guests will see from the veranda stretching far to the right. Winding Bay is perfect for beach strolls, shelling, snorkeling and diving. A small reef resides inside the bay where you will see small fish, star fish, a manta ray and if lucky, you will see sea turtles.
What makes this Villa unique
In front of the house down at the beach there is a cabana for you to enjoy with a table for picnics or afternoon drinks. If you would like more protection from the Atlantic breezes, you can walk or drive around the bay to “Richard’s Beach” for a picnic. Richard’s Beach is directly across from the house when looking out onto the bay from the veranda. Visitors can also walk past Joseph’s Cay and explore the beaches that lead to the entrance to Half Sound. Our family has enjoyed picnics, kayaking, water skiing and shelling in this incredibly beautiful body of water.

Perfect family vacation spot
We loved everything about this sweet pink house and the people who helped make our family vacation so memorable. The owners were extremely helpful and responsive to our questions. The house is very comfortable, clean, and spacious and is thoughtfully appointed with everything you need - from fresh flowers and comfy furniture indoors and out, to board games and all the necessary kitchen amenitites. The location on Winding Bay beach is a beautiful and peaceful long arc of blue water and pink sand. We saw only a few other people on the beach during our week-long stay. We arrived on a Sunday so the housekeeper, Tessa, helped us stock the kitchen with a few starter groceries. Eleuthera is a gem of an island and we were so impressed by its quiet beauty, kind people, and rustic charm. We rented a car from Columbus so we could explore spectacular beaches on both sides of the island and the lovely little towns. Grocery shopping is a bit of an adventure, but the Market in Rock Sound has most essentials and we enjoyed the quest to find local produce and bread, and fresh fish from the dock in Tarpum Bay. We also ate very well at several local restaurants and at the Governor's Harbour fish fry- don't miss it!
Secluded beach front home
My wife and I and two sisters and their husbands stayed at this property in late April and had a wonderful time. Although there are homes on each side of this home, you cannot see them because of the awesome landscaping. The views of the ocean are hard to beat. We had one issue with an air conditioning unit but they came out and replaced the unit right away. The housekeeper, Tessa, was wonderful and cooked us a great dinner. We would stay at this home again. Great experience as we were there for our son's wedding. Cheers
Thanks for this review and we're glad you had a great holiday and wedding!
4 Couples now in love with Eleuthera and POV!
Marty and his team have done a great job with this property. Everything from the landscaping which strategically blocks the sun but not the view, the 2 porches so you can always have a cool shady place to rest, to the 3 outside showers, and enough stuff to make everyone happy at the gorgeous beach. Winding Bay is perfect! Beautiful soft sand, clear and calm water, and lots to explore. We met most of his team and have nothing but good things to say. They took great care to exceed all our wants. This is very close to Paradise.
Our family appreciates these kind remarks and it was a pleasure to work with Mark. We love our home and the unique environment and beauty of Winding Bay. It's a joy to share Point o' Vue with others and have them experience the magic of the place as we have for over twenty years. Marty, Lynnie, Darby, Lindsay, Cal and Todd.
Having visited Eleuthera many times in the past 20 years, I'm always amazed at how this magic island remains a paradise stuck in time. This property, Pointe o' View, adds to the entire experience of Eleuthera with a great housekeeper, a knowledgeable property manager, and a spectacular owner who takes pride in keeping his rental property in excellent condition. The central and southern parts of the island are spectacular and POV acts as a great headquarters for adventure. POV's beach on Winding Bay has plenty to do by itself and the towns of Rock Sound and Tarpum Bay are a short drive away. The most amazing beach in the world, Lighthouse Beach at the southern tip of the island, is just 45 minutes away. You can't go wrong with POV.
Spring Break at Point O Vue
Our family (my husband and I and two children, ages 13 and 9) and another couple stayed at Point O Vue the week of April 16th. The house was very clean and comfortable. The kitchen was extremely well stocked as were the towels for the beach and bathrooms. The view from the house to the ocean was extraordinary. The beach was nice, but there is a lot of seaweed. Our favorite part of the week was our trip to Lighthouse Beach. Absolutely stunning and worth the bumpy ride to get there. Lobster was out of season :( but we enjoyed the grouper and the conch. There is definitely not any nightlife on the island, but we were too tired at the end of the day anyway. Had a breeze the entire time and didn't have to turn the AC on once. Thanks Marty and Linnie for letting us use your wonderful Eleuthera home. We'll be back:)
We are so glad you enjoyed your stay at Point O' Vue and your visit to Eleuthera Island, Bahamas. We love sharing our home with guests and the out island experience. We'd love to have you back. Thanks!
