About the property

'Leisure Lee' your home away from home - nestled between the deep blue Atlantic Ocean on one side and the Caribbean on the other. Our lovely home is situated high above sea level and surrounded by lush tropical landscaping and stunning views of the ocean can be seen from every room. Cool tropical breezes are enjoyed throughout the home and for those warmer summer months, all rooms are air-conditioned. Enjoy the kitchen which is beautifully equipped for in-home dining and entertaining. The sunrises and sunsets are spectacular from the wrap around balcony where you can sit and enjoy your morning cup of coffee or your evening cocktail under the stars that appear close enough to touch.

'Leisure Lee' is a private, spacious and fully furnished 3 bedroom 2 bath home ideal for families, couples and honeymooners, situated in Rainbow Bay minutes away from its own private beach, its sparkling white sand and crystal clear waters perfect for kayaking, shelling, snorkeling and fishing. Rainbow Bay also has its own Private Restaurant and Tennis Courts so come on over, sit back, relax and enjoy your stay at your vacation home in beautiful Rainbow Bay.

There are numerous places to visit and see on the Island of Eleuthera such as Preacher's Cave - a magnificent subterranean cave situated at Hatchet Bay that gives the appearance of a vaulted cathedral that is more than one mile long with stalagmites and stalactites that gleam in torchlight.

The Glass Window Bridge in Gregory Town - This is an unbelievable site where the deep waters of the Atlantic almost meet the calm seas of the Exuma Sound on Eleuthera's leeward side by as little a distance between them as 30'. A truly remarkable sight that has to be seen to be believed.

Surfer's Beach where those of you who love the sport of surfing can enjoy this area that many 'experts' compare with Hawaii's best spots.

Just off the North coast of Eleuthera is Dunmore Town, Harbour Island, the oldest and most charming Settlement in the Bahamas home of picket fences and warm friendly people and a winter home to many of our Rich and Famous.

You must come and join us at Friday evening's Fish Fry at Arthur's Beach in Governor's Harbour - music is always supplied with dancing in the street and is a perfect opportunity to meet with the locals and fellow visitors. Grilled or deep fried Chicken and Fish are the usual dishes to be had and the wonderful rum drinks are a must.

Rainbow Bay Club, the Laughing Lizard, Billy & Brenda's, Tippy's, Buccaneers, The Beach House and Sunset Inn - great places to kick off your shoes, have a great meal and enjoy the beautiful Island of Eleuthera.

There are numerous other places to see in Eleuthera some of which are Ten Bay Beach in Savannah Sound, the Ocean Hole in Rock Sound, Light House Beach in Bannerman Town and the world famous 'Haynes Library' in Governor's Harbour.

Don't take our word for it - come and see for yourselves what a beautiful place this is - we know once you come here you will fall in love with our home and our Island and the warm, friendly people who live here.

Transportation available. Rates on request. Car Seat for baby/child up to 80 lbs. also provided.

Information on flights to Governor's Harbour Airport (nearest Airport to Rainbow Bay) can also be provided.

Housekeeping and catering services available. For further information, please contact Mr. Freddie Ferguson who would be happy to assist.

Why The Owner chose Eleuthera

The location - minutes away from four of the most beautiful Settlements in Eleuthera - James Cistern and Governor's Harbour to the South and Hatchet Bay and Gregory Town to the North. Private beaches, tennis courts and restaurant - Shops, Grocery Stores and Utility Companies all in close vicinity.

What makes this house unique

We love the wide open views of the Atlantic Ocean and Caribbean Sea. The colours of the sea are breathtaking. The wonderful sound of the rain on the roof - so soothing. At night, the stars seem almost close enough to touch. It is a truly tranquil place to spend time away from the hustle and bustle of the City.

Still waiting for our security deposit to be returned

  • 3 of 5

This house has a good location, great views, plentiful linens and towels, and a reasonably equipped kitchen. When we rented it for three weeks in February 2017 two of the four a/c units were not functioning correctly. After the repair person got them operating by manual resetting, they ran but did not respond to the temperature and other settings on the remotes. The owners' initial reply to this and to the non-functioning of the a/c in their car, which we also rented, had been that everything was fine when they some departed some days prior. We did not request a return of the rental fees for the house or the car. (In fairness, they did offer to refund the balance of the car rental if we found another one, but they did not offer to let us drive their other car, which was sitting unused in the garage.) We have now on several occasions requested the return of our security deposit, but have yet to get an affirmative response to that request.

Owner's Response: DAMAGE/RESERVATION DEPOSIT – a damage/reservation deposit of $200.00 is required. This must be received within Seven (7) days of booking the reservation. The deposit automatically converts to a security/damage deposit upon arrival. The deposit is NOT applied toward rent; however, provided certain provisions are met the deposit is fully refundable within (45) days after departure:- You were given the option to find other accommodations and receive a refund of the unused portion of the rental but you chose to stay. You left on Mar 01st. 45 days would be Apr 15th or later.The refund was sent today Mar 21st to arrive 03/24. The car was topped up with Freon coolant and cools perfectly as it seems that was all that was needed. We have replaced the units in the bedroom and family room with brand new ductless units and they do an excellent job. We are quite sure that you will find the type of facility and transportation that suits you should you return and we wish you the best. Regards

Perfect place to stay in Eleuthera

  • 5 of 5

The place is as advertised : Just perfect. Clean, a real house where you could live all year long with all comfort... and you wish you could considering the terrific view from the terrace. We just loved it and the kids also. Central to visit the island. And the car that comes with the house is the thing you need and it's very easy (you're picked up at the airport, driven to at the end of your stay - like a star).

En Français : Vraiment un coin de paradis, très propre, bien placé. On se pince pour y croire tous les matins au réveil.

Owner's Response: Thank you so much for your wonderful review of your stay at Leisure Lee. We are so pleased that you and your family had such a great time - Eleuthera is such a lovely place to spend a holiday and there is so much to do and see. The villa is our home away from home and we especially want our guests to feel the same way when they stay with us. We would love to welcome you back again should you decide to visit Eleuthera in the future. We will be visiting Paris in early June and are really looking forward to seeing a bit of your Country. Best regards to you all. The Owners

Home away from Home!

  • 5 of 5

My third stay at this beautiful villa! It is amazing with a great view! The house is very comfortable, clean and cozy! You are located close to many very adventurous places, great dining, nice beaches. This house also has a car available which is a plus. Would never stay anywhere else. Also has a great caretaker and the owners are so nice and really make your stay pleasant. Home away from home!

Paradise

  • 5 of 5

We enjoyed another stay in ELeuthera and staying at this house is what made it so enjoyable.From the comfort and views is by far our favourite place to stay. It was our first time there with our grandkids and they loved it. They are still talking about the house and beaches. The caretaker was amazing as usual, easy to get ahold to if we needed anything. We can't say enough for the generosity of the owners, they go Above and beyond to make your stay there pleasurable and we can't thank them enough. We look at Eleuthera as our second home and can't wait to go back.

Paradise Found.

  • 5 of 5

I have been visiting beautiful Eleuthera for over 25 years and last Christmas, it was my pleasure to stay at the Leisure Lee. This lovely villa is as welcoming and charming as the island itself and it offers some of the most stunning Caribbean AND Atlantic views that I have ever seen. The kitchen is well-equipped, the beds are comfortable, the linens, luxurious and all the amenities are there. These are a few of the things that make this beautiful home so different from just another vacation rental. I recommend the Leisure Lee without reservation. Just thinking of it now, I'm smiling.
