Luxury 5 BR with Pink Sand Beach and Spectacular Views


Property Details

Updated: Oct 10, 2016
5 bedrooms, 3 bathrooms, sleeps 8

This pristine condition five-bedroom home has constant sea breezes and ocean views in every direction. In addition to a spacious living room, 800' screened-in porch, big sun deck, and 3 bathrooms, there is a huge game/TV room and two other cozy TV and reading areas in different parts of the house.

The lower level has the big game/TV room with a multi-game table (air hockey, mini pool, etc), a full-size ping-pong table, TV, DVD player, and lots of board games. Additionally there is a large bedroom with two twin beds that can sleep four children or be pushed together for a king. This bedroom has a full en-suite bathroom.

The main floor has a gorgeous corner living/dining room with an open, 'chef's dream of a kitchen' that is fully stocked and has 4 bar stools. There are five French doors leading out to the huge screened porch. The indoor dining table seats 8 and the outdoor dining area can seat 12 plus.

Off the screened porch is a vast sundeck with a full-size gas grill and breathtaking views. Also on the second floor is a master-size bedroom with king bed, washer/dryer closet, and a full bathroom off the hall.

The top floor has three bedrooms all with fabulous ocean views. (One queen, one king, and the third with two double beds.) The top floor also has a full bathroom, a computer desk, WIFI, and sitting area with a small TV and VHS player.

'Bahama Mama' is located in a charming community of only seven other stone houses. Wykee Estates was built in the 1940's for the first Premier of the Bahamas as a holiday retreat for his family and staff. Our house is the only home built more recently. It was totally renovated 5 years ago and redecorated just this year.

Wykee Estates has a gorgeous saline pool (very low chlorine) that we share with the other residents, but surprisingly is rarely used. The beach is magical!!

You will probably be the only people not only at the pool but on the gorgeous pink sand Atlantic beach as well. Both the pool and beach are just a few minute walk from the house or a 30-second golf cart ride (two golf carts come with the house).

We are in a great location just five minutes by car from the town of Governor's Harbour and eight minutes from the GHB airport. You can also walk five minutes or take the golf cart down the beach to the Sky Beach Club with its excellent restaurant, spectacular views and infinity pool with swim-up cocktail bar.

We have beautiful landscaping, mature fruit trees, hammocks, swings and tether ball.

The island is totally kicked back and relaxed. Leave your high heels at home along with your makeup... I don't even wear shoes to dinner. The adults can eat at several great beachfront restaurants while the kids run on the beach and play just steps away from your table.

The town of Governors Harbour has a charming collection of 19th century homes and churches overlooking its historic harbor. where you can buy fresh fish and lobster most afternoons from the local fishermen. Governors Harbour has grocery stores, restaurants, liquor stores, two banks with ATMs, a bakery, gift shops, a dive shop, and a medical clinic. Friday Night Fish Fry in Governors Harbour, a street/beach party that brings together all the tourists and locals with food, drink, and dancing in the street, is not to be missed.

The residents of Eleuthera are so warm and friendly and the island is very safe.

Guestbook comments from the manager

We had a great time on Eleuthera - our 3rd time there (although the first for our friends who traveled with us). When we arrived at the house, it was very clean, well organized and stocked with basic supplies. The golf cart was charged and the house aired out. Throughout our stay, we were impressed with the abundance of supplies and equipment - for cooking, going to the beach, and relaxing/playing around the house. We enjoyed several beaches: twin coves, lighthouse, and coco de mama beaches. The beach in front of the house (which is beautiful) was not the first choice because we have little kids and we sought shallow, calm shores. However, we found great snorkeling at the far right end of our beach, as well as the other beaches mentioned.

The ladies and kids liked the Sky Beach Club pool and bar - I think the pool was fun and the bar offered a resort feel. It was nice to have it close by. My wife and I went there for dinner one night and found it nice and plain like most Eleutheran restaurants we've visited. Our friends went to Rainbow Inn and had a similar report. One night we bought some Snappers from the GH docks - they were tasty and affordable. We'll do that more often on future trips there.

Overall, what made the trip was the house (spacious, kid-friendly, screened in, entertaining, internet, outdoor shower, and fully supplied) and the beaches (empty, beautiful, snorkeling, and very close by). Of course, having perfect weather while we were there helps. It's quite possible that we will travel back to Eleuthera next March.

Thanks again - Josh

Beautiful beach house overlooking the Atlantic

  • 4 of 5

This was a great home for our large family of 6 with 4 small children. Grandparents accompanied us as well. The large tables, both inside and outside, were perfect for large family dinners. The house is fully equipped from beach towels & beach gear to spices and most kitchen basics. The decor is nice. The views are amazing from all sides of the home. There are 2 gulf carts to use and next door is Pascal's restaurant with a poolside bar, very convenient.

WOW factor! Bahama Mama is the place to stay!

  • 5 of 5

Bahama Mama was absolutely perfect in every way! We traveled with another family and their 2 boys (along with my husband and daughter) and could not have picked a better house for us to stay! There was definitely the "wow" factor from the minute we pulled up the driveway, to when we walked inside the house. We all adored how the house was decorated and how each room had a different theme. We could tell how many memories have been made at the house with all the photos. Our families enjoyed everything from the game room, to the outdoor kids swing, outdoor private shower, golf carts and all the thoughtful amenities like games and beach toys! We are still dreaming of sleeping with the doors and windows open listening to the ocean waves as well as the daytime lunch/drinks at the pool and beach at Pascal's next door! Everything was perfect!

Thank you Matt and Tara from Eleuthera Vacation Rentals for being so helpful to us prior to our stay as well as when we were there. Linda (the house manager) was great and even called us the morning of our departure to remind us of the time change to make sure we would not miss our flight. We booked Natasha (the cook) for two nights where we put the kids to bed and got to enjoy some delicious adult dinners like a traditional Bahamian meal and unforgettable lobster feast another night. We also booked Sonya for babysitting 2 nights as well and she was great with the kids. I would highly recommend them both! Fish Bone Tours was also a really fun day out on the water for all. Thank you for all your recommendations and the very helpful owner letter as well as information you all sent Matt and Tara.

We are in depression being back which means it was an amazing trip! Thank you for all you did to make it so unforgettable! We hope to come back!

Amazing stay in an amazing house

  • 5 of 5

We spent a week at Bahama Mama and it surely was one of the best vacation weeks we've had - after a week in Florida and a couple of days in Orlando, this was the ultimate relax and recreation, and fun and entertainment for the kids... Eleuthera is a beautiful hidden paradise, with magical places like French Leave Beach or Glass Window Bridge and best beaches we've seen - and actually, probably the best one is just steps from Bahama Mama... And when we felt like we needed a bit of civilization, we drove the golf kart for 2 mins and we ended up at Sammy's bar for Sammy's awesome signature Bahama Mama drink :)

It was definitely a great vacation in a beautiful house at a perfect location. Highly recommended and to be repeated...

Great design for a tropical house

  • 5 of 5

The house is sited on a hill. There is a commanding view of the Atlantic from the living room and eastside bedrooms upstairs. From the kitchen, porch, deck and upstairs westside bedroom windows you can see straight across the narrow island to the Caribbean. The architect must have been well experienced in designing homes for the tropics. Essentially the whole house opens up to the soft outside air with multiple, wonderful French doors. Upstairs, there are screens. On the main floor, a wraparound screened porch hugely expands the living area, and the screens keep the house insect free. Beyond the the screened porch is a big open deck for sunning or grilling. The house is clean, well kept and, I would guess, quite recently renovated. There are flowering bougainville all the way up the driveway. The neighborhood has a delightful swimming pool in a garden setting, and the Atlantic is great for body surfing. If you need to work there is a crow's nest desk perched at the top of the stairs, and you can look up from your computer to another striking view. At the end of the day be sure to hook the screen doors from the porch to the deck or, in night breeze, they will open and close with a bang. Excellent, unique, well thought-out house -- glad we discovered it.

Must go Back!

  • 4 of 5

We arrived around 12:30 in the afternoon and the drive to the property from the airport was an easy 10 min or so. As we entered the development we were wowed! When we entered the driveway to our property we were super wowed!

Since we arrived early the Housekeeper was still there. We had no problem hanging out and looking around. We were invited in, so we of course couldn't wait to see inside. It was wonderful from the start.

Our location was great. Our view was amazing from every part of the house. The deck with all of the fans was great to hang out on for meals or just relaxing and reading a good book(loved the Vanity Fair book). All of the bedrooms were a good size. The only thing missing was a TV in each room, which would have been nice when retiring for the evening. The kitchen was well equipped with everything we needed including 2 dishwashers! There was plenty of dining space for all 8 of us + our 2 yr old granddaughter, who also loved all the activity/sticker books in the downstairs. The basement had a bedroom, TV, ping pong and mini pool game. The refrigerator was well equipped with plenty of beverages, especially some nice wines which we enjoyed with dinner. Each bedroom had its own AC, which could be adjusted by each occupant. The outdoor shower ROCKS! I don't suggest using it in the evening, too many bugs. The house is also great for animal and crazy insect entertainment.

The house was big enough that we weren't walking in to each other and we could have privacy when needed. It was well decorated and very bright! The beds and pillows were perfect and comfortable. We especially like how neutral we were. We were able to hit a few nice restaurants and several of the beautiful beaches.

We had 2 golf carts which really helped to get us around, especially when we wanted to explore the trails. The Sky Bar is just down the road with the BEST drinks made by a super nice bartender "Sam". There is 2 pools. One which belonged to the Sky Bar (infinity pool). The other was the community pool. No one was ever in it. The seagulls and really cool birds loved sitting around it. It was always kept clean and it was very refreshing.

Beautiful home and location

  • 5 of 5

I returned with my family of 6 last weekend (16, 6, 6, and 4). The pictures don't do a justice to the house. The view is amazing and the home is updated, clean, and has everything you need (from bug spray to cooking supplies). Ann really made our stay fantastic by providing a tell all book of things to do in Eleuthera. My kids learned Yoga on the porch! Bring lots of cash with you if you plan on going as everything is 3x the normal price of the US and most places don't take credit cards. Rent a car for the week but don't expect luxury as it's an Island. We enjoyed day trips but most of all using the golf carts to go to the beach and Sky Beach Club (whose Pina Coladas are AMAZING!) I don't think I would go back with my children. They were too young and wanted to be entertained. Ann did have an enormous supply of toys inside and out for the kids to play with making our stay very comfortable. I would definitely go back with my husband!!!
