This is our families' vacation home and no detail has been overlooked. You will find luxuries and amenities that you will find at no other property. Because again, this is our families' vacation home that our family wants to share with you. And to anyone that has rented before, you know the difference.If you want to walk out the door and snorkel and/or fish, get the best lobster pizza EVER and walk down 3 miles of beach and not see another person day after day, this is the vacation home for you. This house is meant to be enjoyed with a relaxed, laid back interior that is both comfortable and luxurious. Our home is kid friendly and adult happy!

We've also just recently added a 7th bedroom to the main house as well as a two bedroom guest cottage in the back for our larger groups.

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!

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!

Home Sweet Home

  • 5 of 5

I have just returned from my fourth stay at Five Palms. That says a lot. If it's not broken, why fix it?

This house welcomes you from the moment you set foot in the door. The decor is amazing and it is even better than the pictures portray. It has everything you would need for a stay at the beach, from beach bags, to coolers, to snorkel equipment. If you packed very lightly you would be fine!

One of the things I like about this house also is that it is centrally located, so if there is something you want to do that is north or south, going in either direction is not that big a deal.

Having a welcome meal delivered on your first night is spectacular and unheard of. What a nice touch. I have rented many houses over the years and Five Palms is the only place to offer that personal touch.

The staff is always available to address any concerns or questions you may have during your stay. Some of our luggage did not make it and Beryl was instrumental in helping us get it, it seems she knows everyone. I touched base with Beryl beforehand and requested some items for the fridge and it was there upon arrival.

The beds are comfortable and plentiful. The house is immaculate and the owners work very hard to keep it that way.

Already checking the calendar for our next stay, and so are the kids. My boys are 16 and 14 now but were younger when we started coming here and they won't even consider another house, or another island. I'm okay with that........

Awsome, Excellent Vacation, Perfect for Family

  • 5 of 5

"Awsome" to quote one of the many superlative positive compliments members of our family of 18 used to describe our 2 week stay at 5 Palms. Three generations ranging in age from 5 to 75+ all had a wonderful time due in a great part to the facilities (just as shown in pics), but also to great local support from Beryl, Keva, Peter, CJ, et al. Without exception all 18 of us recommend 5 Palms!!

Making the reservation for the property with Susan Keeler was great and easily the most positive experience we have had arranging for our family vacations.

Our activities focused on the ocean including body surfing, snorkeling, spear fishing, cliff jumping, etc. but also included exploring caves and pool time at 5 Palms as well as exploring the island. We liked the 5 Palms location on the beach on the Atlantic side of the island sheltered by off shore reefs. The breeze kept insects away and the reef kept the ocean friendly and safe.

If you are thinking about vacationing at 5 Palms, but have not made your mind up yet, just do it. You will not regret it!
