About Gary Ashcraft

The Ashcraft family ( Father and three sons)purchased the property in 1995 and built the house and cottage in 1999. Since then we have enjoyed Conch'd Out with family and friends and rent the property to allow others to appreciate the beauty of the location and enjoy the island of Eleuthera.

Gary Ashcraft purchased this house in 1995

Why Gary Ashcraft chose Bahamas

The Ashcraft family spent many years cruising the Bahamas , fell in love with Eleuthera, and decided to jointly buy and build a home.

What makes this house unique

Conch'd Out is uniquely located an a small coral point and slightly elevated. There is access to beaches on each side of the point. A Palapa is located on the tip of the point-allowing spectacular 270 + degree views up and down the coastline.

Guestbook comments from the owner

Carla and I couldn't have been happier with the entire trip. It truly was a dream come true. I had been wanting to visit Conch'd Out for over 2 years, since the first time I found It online. It was everything I had hoped for and more. Rita and Drew were incredibly welcoming, sweet and helpful. They took a personal interest in making sure Carla and I were having the time of our lives.

The home was beautiful and couldn't have had a more breath taking view. It was well supplied with everything you would want to live there as if it were your own home.

A special thanks to Craig for squeezing us in on such short notice. You allowed Carla and I the opportunity to create some incredible memories we will not soon forget. We plan on coming back soon to create even more...

Best house (and beach) in the Bahamas!

  • 5 of 5

We loved our stay at Conch'd Out! The house is clean, comfortable and well appointed. There are fantastic views from inside the comfort of the house as well as the breezy palapa nestled among the palm trees on the point. We stayed in the main house with 4 adults and 4 children (ages 6 – 9) and there was plenty of room and lots to do. The caretakers, Andrew and Reta, were always available and helpful with booking fishing trips, finding restaurants (gotta have the cracked conch!), and finding basically anything we needed.

During our stay we visited many beaches on both the Carribbean and Atlantic sides of the island (Papaw, Cocodimama, Club Med, Whiteland, Lighthouse). All were beautiful, but my favorite beach was the one right outside of our house! The beach was smooth pink sand, perfect for building sandcastles, lounging and swimming. The water was clear and calm. We were even visited one afternoon by two dolphins that swam around our children playing in the water! Snorkeling on the reef at the house was spectacular - the colorful coral was interesting in shape and there was a huge variety of beautiful reef fish. We also saw conch, lobster, sea urchins, sea anenomes, crabs, sea slugs and other interesting sea life all within swimming distance from the house. We appreciated the kayaks and beach chairs that were available for our use.

Fresh fish is available at the dock in Governor’s Harbour near Norma’s Gift Shop mid-day most days. We cooked most of our meals during our stay (the kitchen had everything we needed). We stopped by the Bluffs Grocery Store near the North Eleuthera Airport on our way in to load up on food (there is more variety and better prices here than at the local stores in Governour’s Harbour and Palmetto Point… there is also a larger store in Rock Sound, but it was closed when we drove by). There were plenty of great restaurants nearby if you are not into cooking. We recommend the poolside bar/restaurant at Sky Beach on Fridays – say hello to Sammy if you go! He is full of great stories.

I would absolutely recommend Conch’d Out! My daughter cried when we left she was so sad to leave. We are already planning our next visit!

Heavenly!

  • 5 of 5

We have stayed here several times and I have to say, this place never lets us down! The water is so crystal clear, the beaches are beautiful and it is such an amazing place to create memories! Whether you go for a walk on the beach, a snorkel or have a drink under the palapa, this place is heaven!

The house is well maintained and stocked with everything you need to make this your home away from home. The views are awesome from every room in the house, both with fantastic views of the ocean and beautiful landscaping.

Andrew and Rita were great, as we have come to expect from our stays there! They are such wonderful people and are so welcoming, helpful and a joy to be around.

We rented paddleboards (we found a place at the buccaneer in Governors Harbor who delivered and picked it up!) and had a great time. The kayaks were awesome, too!

As always, we enjoy eating at Tippy's for great music and an island feel and have recently discovered 1648, a great place to eat, awesome service with more of a resort feel.

We would definitely recommend Conch'd Out to anyone who is looking for a quiet, serene place to unwind with family and friends!

Beautiful home and property

  • 5 of 5

This place was perfect for us. We've stayed at several properties in Palmetto point and double bay over the past 8 years and this is our favorite spot. The things we love about it:

- Frontage on 2 different & perfect beaches

- Since it is on a point, is a bit elevated, and has a fairly open yard, you almost always have a strong breeze which feels great and reduces any bugs.

- very nicely maintained interior and incredible grounds.

- good fishing and snorkeling right out front

- Your caretaker Andrew is super helpful and an incredible guy.

Amazing place!

  • 5 of 5

This was our second visit to Eleuthera. On our first trip, we stayed at Pineapple Fields, but this time we wanted to stay in a private house in order to be directly on the Atlantic beach. We think we made the right choice with Conch’d Out, and hope we’ll be back soon!

Conch’d Out is situated in a uniquely beautiful and private setting. The property commands a high point along the coast, with long sandy beaches on either side. The view of the water is ever-present, from having breakfast on the patio, to a lazy snooze in the hammock after snorkeling, evening drinks under the palapa, and even while checking email from the couch :)

We were impressed with the quality of the accommodation. The house is very well maintained, impeccably clean, spacious and comfortable.

One of the main reasons we come to Eleuthera is the snorkeling, and we usually go twice a day. The snorkeling off the beach in front of Conch'd Out is comparable to what we’ve found elsewhere in our explorations around Eleuthera (e.g., Double Bay, Gaulding's Cay, Lighthouse beach). The kayaks were in good condition, stable, and fun to take out.

Finally, we found this to be a great location on Eleuthera since it’s at the midpoint of the island, so everywhere from Harbour Island to Lighthouse beach is accessible in less than 1.5 hours. With the towns of Governor’s Harbour and North and South Palmetto Point close by, it was easy to access groceries, banks, a bakery (love the Johnny cake!), the Friday night fish fry, gas, restaurants - everything we needed to enjoy a wonderful relaxing holiday.

Thank you Jayna, Craig, Andrew and Rita, for ensuring our stay was unforgettable.

Perfect Home away

  • 5 of 5

We had the chance to rent a couple of house in the bahamas every years for family vacations.

We absolutly loved Conch'd Out. We were two couple with kids with 3 other family members (grandmothers and aunt) and had plenty of space with the cottage.

The house is clean and Drew and Reta were nice and helpful.

The pictures do not reflect the beauty of the house. The master bedroom is beautiful with ensuite bathroom an a stunning ocean view. The ocean is nice and sometimes windy (Atlantic side) but the waves are perfect for a fun dip with kids. The beach on the left (when facing the ocean) is a bit rocky but is shallower than the beach on the right (we we spent the most of out time).

The only things that we missed was a place to eat outside at night (screen proch) because is was not possible at the palapas considering the bugs around 7PM (noseums).

I recommend this place and we will consider this house if we are returning to Eleuthera.

Conch'd was nicer than expected. Well maintained

  • 5 of 5

The house and cottage were very well maintained. All systems worked. The location was perfect for exploring the whole island end to end. The care takers were very accommodating but left us with plenty of privacy. And of course the view from the point was amazing with mid day sun right above. Reefs are beautiful but don't expect to harvest many dinners unless your willing to work for it:)

Palm point has many local places to eat like Tippys (ask for Elliot) many others we didn't have time for but looked great.

I was in Rainbow Bay 20+ years ago and Eleuthera has come along way. A little to much for me but I still recommend the island for first time island explorers. The locals are still really nice and don't mind your visiting as long as your respectful and consider its and island without all the conveniences of the States.(but pretty close)

The owners of Conch'd out were very accommodating and accurately described the property. It's been in their family since they built it roughly 20 years ago and it shows.

Location

Car: recommended

Conch’d Out is easily accessible- just one hour by air from Miami or Fort Lauderdale to Governor's Harbour (GHB) airport or North Eleuthera airport (ELH) . Our comfortable and well-maintained home is right on one of the most beautiful and secluded beaches in the world. This location makes a perfect playground for children of any age. You can enjoy exploring the fascinating coral reefs just offshore, catch a fish or spear a lobster for your dinner, enjoy world-class bone fishing, or charter a boat for deep-sea fishing. Two 2-person kayaks are provided for your enjoyment.

The people of Eleuthera are extremely friendly and hospitable. The island has many interesting places to visit and deserted beaches to explore. Conch'd Out, in North Palmetto Point, is located mid-island, cutting down on the time and expense of gas when sightseeing. And our attentive local caretakers, Andrew and Reta Bethel, will make sure that your Bahamas holiday is a memorable one.
