Property Details

Updated: Apr 21, 2015
House, 2 Bedrooms, 2 Baths, (Sleeps 4)

'The Palms' is a renovated, 2 bedroom 2 bath cottage located near Rogue's Cove marina, on the southern end of Shore Drive, otherwise known as the 'sunshine coast'. Steps carved in the rock lead into the water and provide access to excellent swimming, snorkeling or just relaxing. The 20' x 14' tiki hut provides a great spot for lounging and watching spectacular sunsets which we hope will continue on a daily basis. Use of a 2 person kayak is included in your rental.

The Palms is close to lots of beautiful beaches, shopping and many yummy restaurants. Keep in touch with the outside world, if you must, with broadband wireless internet or visit historic Haynes Library in Governor's Harbor for access.

So come and visit and enjoy the warm, relaxed feeling that radiates from our little island!

Four Weeks...Not Enough!

  • 5 of 5
After a couple of short stays on Eleuthera and twice in Costa Rica for extended stays in past years, we returned to Eleuthera this year for a month at The Palms. From the 'get-go' we felt the privacy, the serenity, the positive energy of the place, the peace of the Caribbean and the comfort of the accommodation. We awoke with the rising sun warming our deck, we moved our coffee and tea to the Tiki Hut, listened to the lapping water on the coral reef and gazed out over the spans of sea and islands to the north. The Palms offered us all the amenities and cleanliness that we had hoped for , a full well equipped kitchen, comfortable beds in spacious bedrooms with views to the sea, an open family area for dining and socializing. Our 4-week experience at The Palms was ideal for our needs to relax, to prepare most of our own meals, to write, to paint and to return to a level of communion with each other that is often a challenge amidst the world of work and the long cold chill of this past winter in New England. We will return to The Palms.

A Little Bit of Heaven

  • 5 of 5
My wife and I just spent 10 glorious days at "The Palms". The perfect beach cottage. Right on the water, beautiful sunsets, and great location. Great deck and tiki hut. Everything we needed and more was provided.We cooked dinner several nights at the cottage while watching the sunset. Star gazing at night was amazing.Very relaxing and romantic. The residents of Eleuthra are just lovely. We have never encountered such friendly people. Our favorite beach was Poponi just 5 minutes away. You are only 6 miles from town and very close to the farm market. Thanks Tim! See you again and thanks for the welcome surprise.

Best Of Three Weeks in Eleuthera

  • 5 of 5
I rented Tim's place for a vacation with my daughter, son-in-law, and my two little grandchildren. The house was perfect for all of us - spacious and well equipped, including very comfortable beds, nice linens and plenty of towels. The kids loved the sandy play area and we loved relaxing under the palm trees. We really enjoyed the wifi and TV after sundown, especially Canadian coverage of the final men's hockey game in the Olympics! Our day trips to beautiful beaches all over the island never ceased to amaze. We loved the nearby Ten Bay Beach the best. The location in Palmetto Point is a perfect home base for daily exploring. Making arrangements for our vacation with Tim was easy and seamless. Caretaker Chris was always available to assist in our arrival and questions throughout the week. Thank you Tim and Chris! We had a wonderful stay at The Palms!

Great stay!

The house was just as it appeared in the pictures and was delightful! The tiki hut was absolutely perfect for shade and sunning yourself! The snorkeling in front of the house was very clear and we saw lots of fun things right there at the house. It was a great central location and a quick trip to governors harbour. The 2 person kayak was great to have as well. If you travel down to lighthouse beach make sure your car has good clearance and good tires. We popped a tire about 2 miles down the dirt road! Luckily we had a spare. Mostly, it's a great place to sit back, relax and enjoy the beautiful island!!

Owner's Response: Thanks Becky! We're glad you had a good time and hope you come back to see us soon! Now that you have 'sand in your shoes' you have to return to Eleuthera, or so the saying goes...

beautiful sunsets at this cottage

  • 5 of 5
We stayed for a week at The Palms with another couple. The cottage is situated right on the water affording beautiful sunsets. It was a bit cool the week we were there so we did not do a lot of swimming.
My only comment would be to be very good friends with whoever you share the cottage with as the whole ceiling throughout is open and there is not a lot of sound privacy. The beaches all over the island are gorgeous and private--we saw very few people on them. Had a great time. We would go back.

An outstanding vacation

  • 5 of 5
Our two week vacation at The Palms was restful and highly enjoyable. The Palms is a very well maintained, fully equipped and nicely appointed cottage. We have Winter vacationed in the Bahamas for the past 34 years (since 1979) and The Palms ranks as the cleanest vacation site we have ever rented. All appliances and facilities in the cottage were in excellent operating condition. Even the water pressure in the shower was near "U.S. quality"--and within our experience, that's a rarity in the Bahamas. The cottage is fully equipped to accommodate four but we found it to be near perfect for just the two of us. A little over a mile away is a village library where an internet connected computer can be rented for only $5.00/hour (our laptop "bit the dust" the second day of our vacation). The view from the deck of the cottage is toward the West and watching sunsets was one of our favorite evening entertainments but even the stunning sunsets were "second best fare" to the nightly display of the visible cosmos. There is no light contamination near The Palms and there is an unlit public marina about 100 yards away which provides a marvelous dark platform for star gazing. It was a magnificent display on clear nights. For the two weeks we enjoyed The Palms we had the neighborhood to ourselves and we prize privacy . A rental vehicle is probably a necessity since markets and "take away" food is a few miles distant. If you are fortunate enough to vacation at The Palms we recommend getting fresh vegetables at the nearby farm market. We found Barrow's market in Governor's Harbor to have all the food supplies we required. The bakery in Governor's Harbor has some of the best whole wheat bread we've ever tasted (available daily about 11:30AM). We enjoyed the Blue Room take away suppers. They are well prepared and very filling (don't miss the plantain side dish). The Sunset restaurant has a decent menu and very friendly service. On weekends we were able to get ribs, potato salad and peas and rice take away dinners from 3J's which is only a little over a mile from The Palms--great potato salad! While we had a wonderful vacation, Eleuthera has so much to offer that two weeks was insufficient time for us to see, do, taste all that we found interesting--so we will be returning.
