Make a holiday rental home or Eleuthera, Bahamas your home away from home

Eleuthera is one of the Out Islands of Bahamas. Stretching for 110miles through the still Caribbean waters yet merely the width of a two lane road, you are never more than a few feet from the ocean regardless of the location of your self catering Eleuthera villa.

Things to do in Eleuthera, Bahamas

Eleuthera is home to 50 beaches, many of which are accessible on foot or by 4x4 only. Beach lovers and artists will be totally enthralled by the pink hues of the sand and the bright blues of the shallow Caribbean and Atlantic waters. Crowds on the beach are almost completely unheard of from an Eleuthera villa, but the further you walk from your beach house, the more remote, secluded and inspiring the beach landscapes become. The rock outcrops, small caves and cliffs of Eleuthera mean that these beaches are not only an ideal place to escape for solitude, but also a visually stunning place for photographers and artists to enjoy the sensational light that Eleuthera is blessed with. Lighthouse Beach, Bannerman Beach and Savannah Sound Beach are particularly special places to soak up the Caribbean sun.

There are some excellent opportunities for deep sea fishing and scuba diving both in the Atlantic and the Caribbean. Eleuthera is known to have some of the best dive sites in the whole of the Caribbean. The Blue Hole, the Train Wreck and Devil’s Backbone are among the most popular and impressive dives in Eleuthera, but for serious scuba divers, the fastest drift dive, known as ‘Current Cut’, where the current pulls you through the rock walls between Eleuthera and the smaller Current Island. Those wishing to explore the underwater world without taking full scuba gear can have a wonderful time with a snorkel and mask too.

Hatchet Cave is well worth exploration from an Eleuthera holiday rental property. Set among the thin countryside of the island. The three mile long cave is beautiful, adorned with graffiti using the natural tar that seeps from the walls. The huge water filled chamber is a beautiful sight, especially when seen from behind the maze of stalactites and stalagmites.

Bone fishing is also hugely popular from Eleuthera accommodation. There are many miles of shallow waters in which to wade and fish for snapper, barracuda and bonefish. Information on the best spots and tactics for catching fish is easily found; just speak to any of the local fishermen for a few moments.

Weather in Eleuthera, Bahamas

Eleuthera’s Caribbean climate means that the island offers a wonderful escape at any time of year. Daily temperatures rend to peak between 26°C in January and 34°C in August, and rain is uncommon throughout the year, with less than 7 days on average in November, the wettest month. On the rare occasions that an Atlantic storm strikes this strip of land, it is advised not to head out, as there is little protection from the elements. However, this has only happened once since 2001.

Cheap flights to Eleuthera, Bahamas

Despite the island’s tiny size, there are actually three airports in Eleuthera. Most people visiting a self catering Eleuthera villa from the UK will fly to Nassau (NAS), and from there, regular short hop flights make the brief journey to North Eleuthera Airport (ELH).

We have been to Eleuthera before, so we had the luxury of knowing what we wanted and where we wanted to be. Our last vacation to Eleuthera was amazing and we worried that this vacation might not be as good as the standard we had was very high. Let me just say this trip far exceeded our last trip to the island. It started with great pre-booking communication with Sara the owner, she was so responsive and so helpful. We arrived on island very early in the morning on the day of check-in. We phoned Ken the great guy who looks after the house and he was very helpful. He was able to give us a definitive time to come to the house and check-in. We arrived at the house and as others have mentioned, it was just as good as advertised and in many ways much better. House is very new, very nice and so spacious. The pictures in no way give the proper perspective on how large this house is. The bedrooms are massive and the beds are very very comfortable. From the very first moment we entered the house we felt at home. Each room has air conditioning and the main areas of the house have central air conditioning which helps very much when it get's very warm. They have a very large refrigerator and a massive washer and dry for cleaning your clothes. On the backside of the house you have a massive porch/deck that is very well equipped with chairs, tables and lounge chairs. Also as you can see by the pictures the hot tube was amazing, especially at night. Paddle board and Kayak were an everyday activity for us. Just about everyday, we were able to see stingrays, and small nurse sharks. Actually you don't need to kayak to see the sharks, as they sometimes come very close to the shore. Don't worry they are pretty much harmless and they will avoid you if you are in the water near them. So much to see in the water and it was so beautiful. 21 days and it only rained one day.... Three weeks was not long enough, this house is amazing and we are already planning our trip back for next year. Thanks so much Sara for allowing us to stay in your home.
