vacation rental description

Villa de Palmas was designed by an architectural firm that specializes in Mediterranean/Caribbean style homes with the High End Client in mind. The estate occupies nearly 3 acres on a very secluded pink sand beach and is situated on one of the highest points in the area commanding a 360 degree view of the lush tropical foliage and the azure seascape. There are two very private homes apart from one another yet close enough for same parties. Both have fully appointed rooms affording magnificent panoramic views designed to capture the gentle trade winds that bless the island. All are generous and comfortable and include a great room, fully equipped modern kitchen, office desk with DSL high speed internet/wireless, telephone, entertainment areas with bose sound docks, dinning, and living areas, functional outdoor pergola with a stone dining table, bar and barbecue combination, 2 separate lounge areas with high end chaise accommodating 8. Large Covered wrap around Loggias with stylish furniture. Each home has 2 master bedrooms for a total of 4 all with their own balconies. with 2 having separate entrances. There is library breezeway, Great rooms, Laundry room and much more. The separate private Cottage home captures as well a stunning ocean view above the trees and is a bit closer to the ocean.

Entering the Grand Estate of Villa de Palmas is capturing. Perched high on a hill it can be seen at a distance. Tasteful entry monuments establish your arrival and decretive walls line the drive while entering the properties interior circular driveway. In the center is a pineapple fountain and pond with water lilies and fish.

The Estate of Villa de Palmas has been family owned since its inception. After 3 years of searching, the right piece of beach front property was purchased in 1989. The estate took 8 years to develop with a vision for grandness 'island style'. With gratitude, we can share the wealth of the land and water that has been blessed with such beauty and serenity. Today after 17 years Villa de Palmas continues that vision. Just a few welcoming steps up from the entrance will afford an enlightening rejuvenation of what island life should be, totally carefree. While the Main home is distinguished in itself, the Cottage home compliments and expands this beautiful estate. Elevated above the vegetation affording a unique view of the ocean with gentle breezes through the full loggia front. Take in an afternoon tea, enjoy a spectacular view of the sea, feel the ocean breezes and smell the villa’s flora, fauna and unspoiled vegetation. Villa de Palmas is in a class of its own catering to the affluent client.

The Estate's crown jewel is just a short walk down a sand pathway lined with sea lilies and palms to the secluded powdery and pearlescent pink-sand beach. With its crescent shape stretching 3 miles and an abundance of natural sand dunes with sea oat grass, sea grapes and coconut palms, you will be immersed in its tranquility. Stroll along the shore at waters edge and you will soon discover the hidden coves welcoming you to take a dip in the warm crystal clear turquoise water. On your way back, pause at the beach’s entrance under a 16 foot palm thatched-roof tiki pavilion. Four whimsical and colorful designer chairs invite you to take a siesta after your beach walk - the perfect venue for gazing at the sea while you listen to the songs of the wind through the casuarinas. Tune in or tune out this is a perfect setting for mindless relaxation. You may be there all day, it truly is paradise.

traveler reviews for this eleuthera estate rental

Pretty much the best I've rented on Eleuthera

Review submitted: August 17, 2014   Date of arrival: July 3, 2014

Hi there, you are smart to read the reviews for this island. Many people love it and visit often. We also post reviews and you can see what works for you and maybe not for others. I am one of those that loves the island and has stayed in many homes over the years. This home is the best so far. And I find that this home had pretty much everything. What is the one thing they didn't have that I don't mind? An air conditioner in the main room of the main house. That's it. All the private rooms had them. I just say that so you get the answer right away, but the REAL story here is how PERFECT this place truly is. The location, the kitchen is TRULY fully equipped (GOOD pots and pans, GOOD coffee maker, GOOD oven, several cooking utensils). With a gas range which is hard to find on the island. Also a water filtration system, so no buying huge jugs of drinking water (the only rental home I've ever seen like this on the island), what comes from the sink is just fine and a HUGE benefit to you. The beach is SPOTLESS. There are toys and floaties, although I used none. The grill area is very nice, the patio as well. There's a cute covered thatch towards the beach with 4 adirondack chairs perfect for falling asleep during the day. On an island that typically has indoor and outdoor bugs, I never saw one bug inside, not a spider or even an ant. I put my breakfast on the ledge outdoors to take a picture and a hummingbird came by, first I've seen of that on the island. I mean this is just a perfect location, quiet, off the road and steps from the beach. I mean, I've stayed at many homes and the main problem is things aren't as advertised. This place has internet that works. Cable channels that work (many other homes have cable, but it's just a few networks with many highlighted, but none visible). A phone that works. A functional kitchen (other homes have warped pans, dull knives, etc). And the bathrooms are nice and spacious. Good water pressure. I really can't say enough good things. This will be my 5th year visiting the island and I stupidly skipped over this one because it seemed like too much house for me, even with the ability to rent the guest house as a single traveler, I chose the main house and was very pleased. I'm happy I finally decided on this home. Even if you are traveling with just two people the main house is great or get the guest house, it's plenty enough for two people. The high ceilings and space in the main home are worth the extra bit. Rent this!

The best on Double Bay!

Review submitted: June 13, 2013   Date of arrival: April 13, 2013

Both the main house and the guest house were equipped with all we needed for a fantastic stay. The gazebo near the beach was the perfect place to enjoy Eleuthera's unmatched beach. Property was perfectly maintained and Anne, the manager, was wonderful. The owner was exceptional; his handbook covered everything one needs to know when staying in Eleuthera. We've been to this island a few times and this house is by far the best. We had a simply fabulous week at Villa de Palmas.

Welcoming Villa de Palmas

Review submitted: May 24, 2013   Date of arrival: May 16, 2013

This was our first trip to Eleuthera and we were extremely pleased with this amazing property. The villa is well equipped & maintained. The kitchen has everything you need, and each bedroom has its on separate bathroom and balcony. The balconies offer panoramic views as far as the eye can see...along side of relaxing ocean breezes. The ocean temperature is absolutely perfect. The owner was very hospitable and made us feel right at home. This property is highly recommended for anyone looking for a relaxing, comfortable luxury get away.

Additional notes:

If you are traveling to Eleuthera for the first time it is highly recommended that you make arrangements to follow a driver from the rental car company to the home as some of the roads do not have street signs.

Also important to check the ferry schedules if you are not flying directly into Eleuthera.

Warmest Regards,

Alex & Michele
