Our casual and comfortable beach home is only a few steps to one of the most beautiful and serene pink sand beaches on the island. You will enjoy swimming in the clear turquoise waters, snorkeling among the many reefs teaming with sea life, kayaking, walking for miles on the pink sand beaches, sunning, and most of all relaxing.

We are Kirk and Marion Love, we reside in Bloomfield Hills, Michigan. Kirk has always lived in Michigan and Marion is originally from North East England.
Kirk or Marion Love purchased this villa in 2008
When we first visited the Island many years ago we fell in love with it and the beautiful people. We decided it would be a wonderful place to have a vacation home.
It is very quiet and peaceful, definitely a place for rest and relaxation. It took us a couple of years to find the perfect location and home and we could not be happier with our choice. The sunrises are spectacular and the views are breathtaking.
We have traveled to Eleuthera for 10 years and have stayed in many places on the island. We love North Palmetto Point - it's not far from Governor's Harbor but is in a peaceful area. This is our 2nd time staying at Barefoot Beach Villa and it is the best house we have ever rented. The beds are comfortable, everything works and the kitchen is well stocked. The best part is the views and the beach out front. If you have a short stay there is no need to leave the house - everything is right there. The screen room is wonderful - we ate our meals out there. No seeums are a pest but not on the porch! Howard, the caretaker, checked on us and answered any questions we had right away. Kirk called to make sure everything was ok when we arrived. We highly recommend this house to others. Unfortunately for us, it has become so popular it is already rented during our trip for next year so don't hesitate to book it!
This is our 2nd stay at barefoot beach villa and definitely not our last. We've been to the island 5 times and always enjoy every day of our stay. We stayed 13 days and didn't want to leave. The house is beautiful and has the nicest beach of all the houses we stayed at so far. We did a lot of exploring, kayaking ,snorkeling, paddle boarding and definitely enjoyed good food. Looking forward to next year.
Thank you so much for an incredible opportunity for family bonding! We are a crazy, active family and we enjoyed the opportunity to relax and reconnect! The house is perfect for a vacation. Kirk and Marion were helpful and quick to respond. Howard is a sweet responsive caretaker. We will be back!
This was our first stay at Barefoot Beach Villa and our second visit to the island of Eleuthera. This is without a doubt one of the best villas we have stayed at in our 20+ years of traveling throughout the Bahamas and the Caribbean. The villa is beautiful and exceeded all of our expectations! What a gorgeous setting it has - so private and quiet with a beautiful beach just steps away. We ate a majority of our meals at the villa and bought grouper and hogfish off the fishermen in Governors Harbor. We also patronized some of our favorite haunts - Tippy's, Buccaneers, 1648 and of course the Friday night fish fry, where we made new friends. Howard, the Caretaker, was a pleasure to meet and was very helpful in all regards. The new shower door he installed during our stay looks great and the no-see-um screens were helpful in warding off those pesky insects. The outdoor shower is very private and we had no need to use the indoor ones, even with a new shower door!
The villa is well equipped with all amenities, included the well needed gas grill for grilling up the local grouper. The kitchen is well equipped with modern appliances, including a well needed ice maker. The setting is extremely quiet and most times we had the beach to ourselves. The settlement of North Palmetto Point is very sweet with several small grocery stores and a few restaurants offering local fare. The beautiful beaches along the Banks Road are minutes away, but the beach in from of the villa rivals the rest for privacy and swimming. No complaints and we recommend this villa highly… so much so that we're looking forward to our return in 2016!
What a gem! We are frequent visitors to Eleuthera. I first came as a child with my parents. We started bringing our children when the oldest was only 6 weeks old, and now are bringing our grandchildren! We have many fond memories, and have stayed in many homes over the years, and Barefoot Beach Villa is one of the best. The layout is perfect, with common areas in the center of the house and bedrooms located separately in the side wings. Everything you might need has been provided by Marion and Kirk. It is centrally located with restaurants and grocery stores nearby. The views of the Atlantic are exactly what you see in the photos. It is awesome every day —all day — constantly changing, no matter what the weather. Some days the ocean is calm, other days rough, but always amazing. One of the things we love about Eleuthera is that you’re never more than a few minutes away from the perfect beach. There is something for everyone, from Surfer’s Beach to the crystal clear calm, shallow beaches at Ten Bay or Coca di Mama. If it’s too rough on the Atlantic side, a short drive will bring you to one of those calm beaches where small children can sit in the water and play, watching tiny fish swim around them, and never be toppled by waves.
Another important detail - this home has one of the best internet connections we’ve ever experienced on Eleuthera. It was always available - very unusual compared to past experiences.
One thing we discovered this year were the Stone Crabs! We brought a cooler from the house on one of our day trips to Gregory Town (Pam’s Gift Shop) and on the way back stopped in Hatchet Bay where we bought the crabs wholesale. They are farmed there and frozen for export, and are available to purchase right from the warehouse (just off the Queen’s Highway). We brought them back to the house and had them for dinner. Quite a treat!! If you do go to Gregory Town try Unca Gene’s for lunch. Good food and friendly people!
Barefoot Beach Villa will definitely be a part of our future visits to Eleuthera!
We have stayed on this island four times and this house is by far the best. The location is superb...gorgeous views, a perfect, private pink sand beach plus wonderful outdoor accessories...hammock, lounge chairs, kayaks, snorkeling equipment, bikes. The house is modern, spacious and nicely decorated. We had plenty of dishes, pots & pans, linens, even spices! The caretaker Howard was wonderful. We enjoyed meals on the screened porch and reading on the patio. The ability to stay connected to issues back home thru the internet was most helpful. We strongly recommend this house to anyone looking for the perfect beach house.
