“Perfect base to explore the beautiful island of Eleuthera”

This is a large house split into 4 apartments - there are two larger apartments (at either end of the house) with combined kitchen (sink, cooker, microwave, large fridge and freezer)/dining room, two bedrooms and two bathrooms, and two smaller rooms in the middle of the house, with more limited kitchen facilities (sink, small fridge, microwave). The two larger apartments and one of the smaller rooms open onto the deck by the sea, the other smaller room is at the back of the house. The rooms are bright, clean, spacious, well-furnished and well-equipped, including the kitchen. There is a communal deck shared among the three apartments on the sea side of the house (also obviously available for the other apartment, just walk around the house), with a couple of steps down onto the beach, a shared barbecue and a fire pit on the beach.

The house is right beside the sea (Caribbean/west side) in South Palmetto Point, with beautiful views of the sunset and a couple of offshore islands. The beach has shells and coral fragments, and there is a rocky shelf exposed at low tide, although there is also a small, sandy area with access directly into the water from the beach. Nice snorkelling along the edge of the rock shelf, not much coral but this is the Caribbean side so that's typical - we saw several fish species including angelfish and stingrays. It was calm 5 of the 7 days we were there, while the opposite was true of the Atlantic/eastern beaches. We wore shorty wetsuits or similar for snorkelling more than 1 hr, even though the air temperature was unusually high, in the mid-80s F all week. Midges were out only between 5-6 pm on calm days, bug spray recommended.

South Palmetto Point is near the middle of Eleuthera, a great base for exploring the island. It's about 1.5 hrs drive down to the southern tip and perhaps the same up to the north. There are several small stores in South Palmetto Point, and a great bakery and farm shop for vegetables at the southern edge of town (Island Farms). We rented two cars from the owners of the house, a Ford Taurus and a Honda CRV. Although both were 2WD, the higher CRV was definitely the better vehicle for exploring the rough back roads of the island. We never needed 4WD. Owners were very helpful throughout, and met us at the airport in our rental vehicles without charge, although they do charge to pick-up at Rock Sound or North Eleuthera.
