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!

Pictures don't do this GORGEOUS property justice!!

  • 5 of 5

My friends and I (16 of us) stayed here in May. I have stayed in properties all over the world, and this house blew those away. It was the only property I've ever rented where the property was BETTER than the pictures.

First off, Susan made the booking process so easy. She arranged our transportation from the airport to the house, made sure all the house amenities were ready to go, and she was always responsive and helpful. We wanted to explore some other islands, so she put us in touch with the correct people - anything we needed, Susan ensured we had.

Then, the actual property - WOW! Perfect setup for our group - we had plenty of space, privacy, and there is something to do for everyone. Between the kayaks, the Hobie, the beach, the pool, the game room - there was NOTHING we needed that we didn't have. The privacy of the beach is like nothing I've experienced - you basically have the beach all to yourself!

The service at the house was incredible. Beryl and Julian went out of their way to make sure we were taken care of - arranging restaurant reservations, booking our massages, helping transport us back to the airport when we left. The first night, we were treated to Beryl's home cooking and it was delicious.

We went to several of the recommended restaurants on the island - great food, great service, and incredible views to boot.

I just can't say enough about this property. My only regret in booking it is that I didn't stay longer, but we are already in discussions for when we can go back!

Amazing experience at Five Palms

  • 5 of 5

Our family, which included 4 small children ages 1-7, enjoyed a week at Five Palms this April. Beryl welcomed us the moment we arrived at Governor’s Harbor airport and drove us to the house. Our first impression was how well kept the house and grounds were. It was incredibly clean and perfectly decorated. The ocean view from the dining room area is unbelievable! The house truly has everything you could need. Our children played with the legos, read books, colored and watched movies all week long. The adults enjoyed the enormous selection of games and puzzles (and the margarita machine!). There are even plastic, frozen glasses to keep your beverage cold at the pool or beach!

We ventured off only a few times during the week to go to Ten Bay and the Ocean Hole. Mostly, we split time between the pristine beach and the warm pool. We were astounded at the section of life vests, snorkel gear, pool toys and ocean toys (kayaks, hobie cat etc.) that are provided. It truly is like being at a hotel but you are the only guests!

Beryl, Julian and the cleaning team are all kind, courteous and warm people. Beryl and her sister cooked a few meals for us and they were all wonderful. They even asked our kids to help decorate the chocolate cake and brought their favorite M&M’s as a topper. Susan was helpful from the moment we booked our vacation right up until we arrived, answering numerous questions and making sure we were taken care of.

We look forward to returning to Five Palms next year!

Incredible and Amazing family vacation

  • 5 of 5

My family of 12 which included 4 grandchildren (ages 5-9) ventured from Montana to an amazing house, beach and island. The house was exactly as pictured only better. It is well cared for and includes everything you could want and more. We wanted for nothing and thoroughly enjoyed the pool and beach along with getting to know Beryl and Julian.

The meal when we arrived from a long trip was a great welcome and a nice touch to the beginning of our week-long stay. We had Beryl prepare two more birthday meals for us and they were special as well. Although food is expensive we had access to all that we needed and she helped with some items before we arrived.

We spent many hours sitting by the beach and a few of us took snorkeling lessons with Flipper in the pool. Most of us snorkeled every day right out our own private beach and Flipper took 6 for spear fishing. Everyone saw amazing species of fish, turtles, and rays. Volleyball and kayacking were also popular.

Sitting out on the beach or deck in the morning and enjoying the sunrise and the ocean waves breaking is a vivid memory of mine and the pictures we all took will be treasured forever. The views from the house were spectacular. We especially enjoyed walking the beach in both directions and finding sea shells. The boys and their fathers built amazing sand castles and ran down each morning to see if the sea had taken them away.

We had a 12 passage van that all of us could go together and explore the island in both directions. We also had a terrific meal at Tippy's and spent some time on surfers beach one afternoon.

Susan gave us great customer service and answered all our questions whenever we communicated.

My husband, three grown children, spouses and grandkids all agreed we should go back as this is truly a paradise vacation! If you are thinking of vacationing at 5 palms, don't hesitate as it is everything advertised and more.

Our amazing time at 5 Palms Eleuthra

  • 5 of 5

We have been fortunate as a family of 15+, to have stayed with VRBO in Australia, Arizona, Hawaii and Eleuthra. 5 Palms was the outstanding winner, with every amenity one could ask for and more. The accommodations are 5 star as well as the staff. The owners are extremely helpful when planning and the trip was done problem free , even with 17 of us from 3 months to 95 years. Although the food selection in the local food stores is about 20% higher in general, the selection is fine for most tastes, as well as the liquor selection. Enjoy!!!!

Magical Spot in Paradise

  • 5 of 5

We've just returned from our Christmas stay at Five Palms. I cannot tell you how lucky we all feel. From the moment Beryl picks you up at the airport, you will feel like you've found nirvana. This home is a magical place created with so much love, passion and attention to detail that we found absolutely nothing lacking. Our family has rented through vrbo for years, all over the world, from Vienna to Nantucket and never have we stayed in a home so well equipped from top to bottom. The kitchen, the kids' areas, the laundry, the pantry, the towels, linens, beach gear, snorkel gear, everything. Unparalleled. Honestly, the pictures don't even begin to tell its story. Five Palms kept exceeding our expectations day in and day out!

You will find everything you need to keep everyone, from the oldest to the youngest, entertained. Books, puzzles, games, movies, art center, wii, beach toys galore, pool toys, and I haven't even started on the gorgeous well kept beach! You can walk for days and see NO ONE. Except, lovely wonderful Julian & Beryl who both took such great care of us and the property, even during Christmas holidays. Trust them. They know best about pretty much everything. Oh, and feed Socks while you're there! She's super sweet!

The only thing I worried about was location and weather. The location tuned out to be perfect, close to grocery, Ten Bay Beach, and just far away enough from everything else. The weather was PERFECT!

Five Palms is like coming home to beach house you wish you had. It just feels so incredibly welcoming and comfortable. We can't wait to return - fingers crossed!

Amazing Vacation Home for Family Memories

  • 5 of 5

Our July stay at Five Palms was two years in the planning and provided all of us with incredible experiences and memories. Five Palms fit our family of 16 including 8 grandchildren from 3 to 13 perfectly, offering so many on-site activities. Our sons and families spent hours on the beach and in the water, snorkeling, fishing and kayaking. When everyone wanted a change, it was down to the pool in the afternoon to swim. Renting both vehicles made it convenient to venture forth to several wonderful beaches. Our favorites were Ten Bay Beach, Lighthouse Beach (hiked in) and Ocean Hole. Five Palms sits on a stunning beach, is well planned, spacious, and the most comfortable of all the homes we have rented over the years. Susan, the owner is very responsive and the staff beyond helpful. Susan recommended bringing a cooler of frozen meats, which worked out well. Beryl’s cinnamon buns and cupcakes were the grandkids favorites! Loved stopping by for fresh mangos at local stands and smoothies at the Blue Seahorse in Rock Sound. This was our first visit but this won’t be our last!
