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!

AMAZING BEACH VACATION RENTAL FOR FAMILY REUNION

  • 5 out of 5
This is the best house we have ever rented for a family vacation. It is even more beautiful than the pictures! The beach has awesome snorkeling just 20 feet off the shore and the water is crystal clear. The pavilions at both the pool and beach offer shade and a perfect spot to read and relax. The paddle boards, kayaks, sailboat and small boat offer hours of fun in the water. We even caught a lobster! This house has everything you need for a great family vacation. The home itself is stunningly beautiful with amazing views of the ocean and perfectly decorated in a beach and nautical theme. All the beds are comfortable and the children's area is filled with toys, puzzles and movies. There is ample seating downstairs to watch TV or a movie and a beautiful screened in porch upstairs to enjoy the view and listen to the ocean waves. The dining room table seats 14 with stunning views of the ocean and Beryl cooks fabulous meals so everyone can relax. We never saw another person on the beach for the entire week. We had our own wonderful slice of paradise! The owners were great to work with and attended to our every need. We would love to keep 5 Palms our little secret but its a place to be shared - 5 stars for 5 Palms

BEST HOUSE RENTAL WE HAVE EVER EXPERIENCED

  • 5 out of 5
It's all been said, but I will add our five-star experience to the reviews. Just to qualify my review, I'll add that my family vacations every year and we usually rent homes. We have rented amazing homes in Breckenridge, Carlsbad and Santa Barbara. Five Palms Beach House is our new standard. There are many beautiful homes out there but what sets this one apart is the staff, owners and extreme care that is taken to ensure all guests - strangers - have an amazing vacation. They seem like genuinely good people and I am so pleased that I was able to feel like a family friend renting their home for a week.
Highlights:
Amazing snorkeling in front of the house! I don't think enough is said about this. Like my son said - "it's like Finding Nemo out there!" You just grab one of the many selections of fins and masks and walk out a few yards to amazing snorkeling around the coral reef. In the past we have paid for excursions to be taken by boat to lesser snorkeling spots!
The home inside and out is just beautiful…another great quote – “it’s like a Pottery Barn catalog threw up in the house!” Seriously it’s so comfortable and beautiful. All of the rooms are decorated so well and all of the bed linens are soft and cozy. The game and movie selection is unbelievable. In fact many new releases were still in wrappers. I know the owners had just left and guessing they brought new movies with them. What care and attention they give to this house!
Staff – the staff are just so friendly. Beryl the cook was so talkative and friendly. We got to know her very quickly and enjoyed her lively conversation. It was wonderful taking advantage of the in-house cook on a few days. We got spoiled being called in for lunch and dinner and having it all cleaned up for us as well. After eating out with our large group a few times, we realized the in-house cook option was not over-priced.
You won’t be disappointed renting this house. As I type that I am wondering why I wouldn’t try to keep this place quiet, but it’s too good to not share! We have been back two days and I’ve told Susan to keep my deposit as we are scheduling our return trip ASAP!

PERFECTION

  • 5 out of 5
I was in charge of this vacation from where to go, where to stay, who to invite, menu,bringing meat cooler (!), activities, & even packing advisor. So I felt a little pressure that everyone enjoy themselves. After arriving at the house, all fears dissolved.
The staff were wonderful. Peter gave us excellent advice & made us feel comfortable that we had someone to help navigate the island. Beryl shopped, cooked, & even babysat for us while we up to eat at Tippy's (fabulous!). The pool & beach were kept spotless by Desmond. And I didn't know there was going to be maid service every other day- but it was sure appreciated! Nice to have a freshly made bed & non sand covered feet.
They have everything there for you. Jackets, hats, bags, the exact kind of floatie we use for our 3 yr old (I knew I shouldn't have packed it!). Even supply bottled water for your stay (& toilet paper/paper towels! Have never seen that in a house rental before) Everyone enjoyed picking a movie to bring to bed with them. Had not seen many of the new releases they had, for kids and adults.
Enjoyed scuba diving with Ocean Fox, driving up to Harbour Island, went to 10 Bay, Double Bay, & Savannah Sound when it was windy & the waves a little rough for the young ones. Amazing to drive 10 minutes & have completely different weather. Loved the giant boxes of snorkel gear. Slipped fins & mask on & walked out to our private reef for hours a day.
The very best thing to our group, was that we had our own private beach. There was one other house on the beach that we saw (and we went on loooong walks) and that was it. No one. Perfection.

WHAT ELSE CAN WE SAY.....

  • 5 out of 5
We chose this place because of the reviews and photos and the photos don't give it much justice. What makes this place stand out is that they have thought of everything kayaks, small boats, snorkel gear, hawaiian spear slings, fishing poles, board games, cards, tons of DVDs, kids toys, beach toys, pool toys, life vests, beach towels, stocked kitchen, I can go on and on..... This place feels like it was built for a large group of people to enjoy every possible day in every possible way.

Susan was great making sure we were ready for our trip. The staff was great and I would recommend having Beryl cook some of your meals, she was a pleasure. I would also recommend bringing in meat and chicken like we did for some of your meals.

My only complaint was I wasn't able to spear the elusive lobster. I was able to find 5 of them right out in front but was unable to spear them. I now refer to them as "the cheetah of the sea". I became obsessed with catching them and even lost a spear in one of my attempts (don't worry Susan, I replaced it) . Next time I plan to bring dynamite to ensure my nemesis doesn't win again ;). With that said I'm sure if I hired a guide I would have learned all the tricks and could of saved myself from defeat.

In all seriousness this place is great, it's really the only reason I considered Eleuthera in the first place. We like to experience new islands but this is the one time I would come back to one just for the lodging experience.

Thank you
Ross Family, Marino Family, and Davis Family.

A BEACHFRONT HOME THAT IS REALLY A 5 STAR RESORT

  • 5 out of 5
Our first visit to Eleuthera, but not the last. Susan Keeler and her family have created the perfect island getaway. We have rented many island getaways over the past 20 years; and I must say that the careful consideration, attention to personal details, and hospitality we experienced during the rental process and our stay were genuinely friendly, relaxed and thorough.

The home is beautifully designed and decorated. The furnishings and appliances are all top shelf. They have everything you will want/need. The staff is eager to please and accessible when you want them. The property is ideally situated on Eleuthera - and has a most beautiful beach with a reef directly in front of the house. The property is somewhat isolated, so we did not see anybody else on the beach for the entire week we were there. The pool and the surrounding yard is very well cared for by the groundskeeper, Desmond, who is very friendly and knowledgeable about the local area; and is an excellent source of information about the local fish. The house is equipped for fishing and lobstering - we enjoyed several delicious meals of grilled Caribbean Spiny Lobster that we caught. Snorkeling gear, glass bottom kayaks, windsurfers, Hobie Cat, and other assorted water toys kept us amused.

Our party consisted of 4 seniors, 5 young adults, and 2 grandbabies - and the house was more than ample for our comfort. A friendly cleaning crew came through every other day and tidied things up. The house is around 15 minutes drive from the next town, which we visited a lot to buy supplies, meals, and just hang out at the fishing docks. The local people were always friendly and helpful. I've been to a lot of islands, and Eleuthera is remarkable in that nobody has bars on their windows. Petty crime appears to be non-existent. I felt very safe on this vacation.

I've only been home a couple days now, and am already beginning to plan our return to Five Palms. It is that good.
