Property Details

Updated: Mar 22, 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!

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!

  • 5 of 5
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.

Perfect Vacation

  • 5 of 5
Thank you, Joan and Tim for your hospitality!

We had a wonderful stay in your cottage. It felt like home, like we belonged there and it was perfect in every way.

Eleuthera exceeded our expectations in every way. We enjoyed excellent food everywhere we went, from Harbour Island to Cape Eleuthera. Friendly and helpful people along the way gave us directions and showed us where the beach accesses were. The fishermen offered us lobster, snapper and grouper freshly caught. And, of course, we had a great time discovering beautiful natural beaches for walking and swimming. There were also sunsets and more, brighter stars and planets in the sky than we thought possible to see.

What a great place to unwind while enjoying a beautiful island and its friendly people. Our minds are filled with images of The Palms and Eleuthera.

Owner's Response: Thank you for your very nice review. I think everyone that stays at the Palms should be a travel writer! We realize that visitors are coming to see and explore Eleuthera and want a nice, clean, fun, convenient, and reasonably priced place to stay while they're here. Our goal is to make sure the Palms is all that and maybe a little more.
Thanks Marielle and Andre! I hope we see you again soon!

Excellent cottage

  • 5 of 5
This is an excellent cottage and worked out perfectly for my family. Tim was extremely easy to communicate with and very thorough and prompt with any questions or concerns leading up to our stay. He has fantastic connections on the island and is able to take care of any and all requests immediately, although our stay was uneventful regarding any problems. The property has marvelous swimming and snorkeling right out front, a great shell beach a half mile away, and is within an hour's driving distance of most attractions on the island, including Harbour Island. This was the only cottage along the entire seafront that had sand, easy access to swimming and snorkeling, the Tiki Hut was completely relaxing as was the cottage which included A/C for those hot nights, cable to wind down after fun-filled days, an efficient kitchen where we even baked corn bread, and very comfortable bedrooms and baths. Governors Harbour is very nearby for any grocery or other needs, and there are many places to eat easily within a half hour...our favorite was the Rainbow Inn. I truly recommend this cottage and its owner, Tim. He was a tremendous host and the cottage and location were top drawer for quiet and relaxation.
