Because again, this is our families' vacation home that our family wants to share with you.

This house is meant to be enjoyed with a relaxed, laid back interior that is both comfortable and luxurious. Our home is kid friendly and adult happy!

Guestbook comments from the owner

Our family of 15 (8 adults and 7 grandchildren ages 7-13) had a spectacular vacation spending the week of Thanksgiving, 2013 at The Five Palms Beach house in Eleuthera. The home is spacious, beautifully decorated and equipped with everything you need (cards, games, movies, videos and plenty of books. We enjoyed long walks on the beautiful private beach and used the Hoby Cat, surf & boogie boards and all the beach toys. Everyone of the staff members could not have been nicer and extremely helpful even the gorgeous beach was raked and cleaned every morning.



We took advantage of the detailed guest book having fabulous & fun dinners at the local restaurants (take extra cash since many do not honor credit cards.) Beryl cooked us scrumptious meals especially her homemade cinnamon breakfast buns and a delicious fresh lobster dinner!! Beryl was also extremely helpful in planning our weeks schedule.



The older children and fathers had a fabulous scuba exhibition with Al. All of us thoroughly enjoyed our day with Flipper starting with cracking the fresh stone crabs at the pool then devouring them for lunch. Flipper then took to another beautiful private beach for snorkeling.



I could go on & on with many more reasons not to miss a trip of a lifetime staying at The Five Palms Beach House.



Many thanks to Susan Keeler and the Schmauder’ s for their continued support and help before and during our vacation!

Absolutely Incredible Property and People

  • 5 of 5

This review comes late but the memories are fond. We were a large group of friends (7 couples, 3 teenage children) that travelled to Eleuthera March 25 - April 1st. A few of us had been to the island a few times, mostly staying near Governors Harbour area. We wanted to share the beauty of the island with our everyone we knew. Our expectations were so far exceeded with the home. It is warm, welcoming, fresh, inviting, well built, beautifully decorated. Anything you think you may need is available to you. Everything is wonderful quality. With such a large group, we weren't tripping over each other. It is set up for family enjoyment. There is plenty of space for everyone to have their alone time when needed, and many spots to sit and visit with each other. The main floor of the main house is so functional. We also rented the back house and it is lovely. The beach is beautiful, tons of privacy and the pool was well loved. We weren't sure what to expect staying this far south but were so happy to meet new people and learn more about our beloved Eleuthera. Great grocery stores in Rock Sound and our favourite one Mid Way Cost Cutters in Savannah Sound. We chartered a few fishing trips and a trip by boat to LightHouse Beach with Captain Cali out of Davis Harbour. He's awesome! Susan is one of the loveliest owners we have ever worked with. Thank you so much for your hospitality and sharing your home with us. Should we travel with a larger group again, we will definitely be back!! Highly recommended, you will not be disappointed booking this property or its location!

THE PROPERTY, OWNERS, AND STAFF DESERVE 6 STARS!!

  • 5 of 5

The property, the owners, and the staff were actually more fantastic than the descriptions, the reviews and pictures led us to believe. It was perfect for the 17 of us ranging in ages from 1 1/2 to 72 years. The layout allowed us to house our four sub-family units for maximum privacy while also giving us huge spaces for socializing. The entire property, inside and out, was very clean and well maintained, and a caretaker came daily to ensure that the pool, beach and grounds were in perfect condition. The owner was friendly, very helpful and provided excellent information and service. We will and have recommended the property to friends.

We have stayed in numerous vacation homes in several countries and we can say that this is far and away the best appointed one--from the beach equipment, the bedrooms, the common areas, the entertainment options, the outdoor living areas, to the kitchen and the pantry. Everything one could possibly desire is provided. Foul or fair weather, this is a perfect property for a large group. Luckily we had great weather every day. The beach in front of the home is private and is great for walking, relaxing, snorkeling, kayaking, and sailing. The pool is a nice size, clean, and has both shade and sunny areas.

Definitely rent the car(s) with the house and explore the many other beaches of the island. We did this every day and we were never disappointed, but we always ended up back at the beach and the pool at the house for the afternoon.

Take advantage of Beryl's knowledge and her cooking to get the most from your trip. She is a native who knows all the local people and the "must see and do" activities. She prepares great meals too.

It was our 50th wedding anniversary and we had all of our children and grandchildren with us. Every one of us had a great stay and made lifetime memories. You won't go wrong renting this home!

Pictures don't do this GORGEOUS property justice!!

  • 5 of 5

My friends and I (16 of us) stayed here in May. I have stayed in properties all over the world, and this house blew those away. It was the only property I've ever rented where the property was BETTER than the pictures.

First off, Susan made the booking process so easy. She arranged our transportation from the airport to the house, made sure all the house amenities were ready to go, and she was always responsive and helpful. We wanted to explore some other islands, so she put us in touch with the correct people - anything we needed, Susan ensured we had.

Then, the actual property - WOW! Perfect setup for our group - we had plenty of space, privacy, and there is something to do for everyone. Between the kayaks, the Hobie, the beach, the pool, the game room - there was NOTHING we needed that we didn't have. The privacy of the beach is like nothing I've experienced - you basically have the beach all to yourself!

The service at the house was incredible. Beryl and Julian went out of their way to make sure we were taken care of - arranging restaurant reservations, booking our massages, helping transport us back to the airport when we left. The first night, we were treated to Beryl's home cooking and it was delicious.

We went to several of the recommended restaurants on the island - great food, great service, and incredible views to boot.

I just can't say enough about this property. My only regret in booking it is that I didn't stay longer, but we are already in discussions for when we can go back!

Amazing experience at Five Palms

  • 5 of 5

Our family, which included 4 small children ages 1-7, enjoyed a week at Five Palms this April. Beryl welcomed us the moment we arrived at Governor’s Harbor airport and drove us to the house. Our first impression was how well kept the house and grounds were. It was incredibly clean and perfectly decorated. The ocean view from the dining room area is unbelievable! The house truly has everything you could need. Our children played with the legos, read books, colored and watched movies all week long. The adults enjoyed the enormous selection of games and puzzles (and the margarita machine!). There are even plastic, frozen glasses to keep your beverage cold at the pool or beach!

We ventured off only a few times during the week to go to Ten Bay and the Ocean Hole. Mostly, we split time between the pristine beach and the warm pool. We were astounded at the section of life vests, snorkel gear, pool toys and ocean toys (kayaks, hobie cat etc.) that are provided. It truly is like being at a hotel but you are the only guests!

Beryl, Julian and the cleaning team are all kind, courteous and warm people. Beryl and her sister cooked a few meals for us and they were all wonderful. They even asked our kids to help decorate the chocolate cake and brought their favorite M&M’s as a topper. Susan was helpful from the moment we booked our vacation right up until we arrived, answering numerous questions and making sure we were taken care of.

We look forward to returning to Five Palms next year!

Incredible and Amazing family vacation

  • 5 of 5

My family of 12 which included 4 grandchildren (ages 5-9) ventured from Montana to an amazing house, beach and island. The house was exactly as pictured only better. It is well cared for and includes everything you could want and more. We wanted for nothing and thoroughly enjoyed the pool and beach along with getting to know Beryl and Julian.

The meal when we arrived from a long trip was a great welcome and a nice touch to the beginning of our week-long stay. We had Beryl prepare two more birthday meals for us and they were special as well. Although food is expensive we had access to all that we needed and she helped with some items before we arrived.

We spent many hours sitting by the beach and a few of us took snorkeling lessons with Flipper in the pool. Most of us snorkeled every day right out our own private beach and Flipper took 6 for spear fishing. Everyone saw amazing species of fish, turtles, and rays. Volleyball and kayacking were also popular.

Sitting out on the beach or deck in the morning and enjoying the sunrise and the ocean waves breaking is a vivid memory of mine and the pictures we all took will be treasured forever. The views from the house were spectacular. We especially enjoyed walking the beach in both directions and finding sea shells. The boys and their fathers built amazing sand castles and ran down each morning to see if the sea had taken them away.

We had a 12 passage van that all of us could go together and explore the island in both directions. We also had a terrific meal at Tippy's and spent some time on surfers beach one afternoon.

Susan gave us great customer service and answered all our questions whenever we communicated.

My husband, three grown children, spouses and grandkids all agreed we should go back as this is truly a paradise vacation! If you are thinking of vacationing at 5 palms, don't hesitate as it is everything advertised and more.

Our amazing time at 5 Palms Eleuthra

  • 5 of 5

We have been fortunate as a family of 15+, to have stayed with VRBO in Australia, Arizona, Hawaii and Eleuthra. 5 Palms was the outstanding winner, with every amenity one could ask for and more. The accommodations are 5 star as well as the staff. The owners are extremely helpful when planning and the trip was done problem free , even with 17 of us from 3 months to 95 years. Although the food selection in the local food stores is about 20% higher in general, the selection is fine for most tastes, as well as the liquor selection. Enjoy!!!!
