The home is well maintained as we are there so often

A true Bahimian Style Cottage

Our wonderful stay at Palmetto Sunrise

  • 5 of 5

We had the best two week vacation of our lives at palmetto Sunrise.

The house has everything you could ask for as the owenrs have gone the extar mile to furnish this house with nothing but the best.

Woderful views from the front Deck overlooking the Ocean.

There is alsoa rear deck that overlooks the lake that makes for the prefect setting for morning coffee.

We were also very happy to have internet at this home as we were able to stay in touch with home.

We highly recomend this home for a great stay.

I did not mention the beach and snorkeling but the snorkeling had to be the best we have ever experienced as the off shore reef is very close to the beach and the sea life was all around us from the moment we started our swim..

There is a nice swimming cove a short walk up the beach that is very private also.

We saw only one other couple on the beach our entire stay.

Palmetto Sunrise is also clsoe to the restraunats and shops but still remote and private on the beach road away from town

A Villa and Cottage you could live in!

  • 5 of 5

A beautiful, centrally located and extremely well equipped property. We rented both the Villa and the Cottage for our family and had more than enough space (and internet) to spend a wonderful week together, without drama! Numerous great beaches, restaurants and sites within easy driving distance. A beautiful beach right in front of the Cottage. We bought local fish and cooked in several nights. Several well stocked markets/bakeries (including organic farms) within an easy drive. The Villa kitchen is like you would expect at home and with all the space and cooking/serving pieces you will ever need. Snorkeling and beach gear included. Next time we go, we will cut our luggage and gear in half!

Palmetto Sunrise couldn’t have been a more perfect

  • 5 of 5

Built as a vacation home for the owners, with a wonderfully outfitted kitchen, and an astounding view of sunrise over the Atlantic from the front deck, which wraps around to the rear with dramatic sunset view. An added bonus was having Ken, the owner, unexpectedly on the island (staying with friends since we were in his house). He was a fabulous host, and a hell of a lot of fun too! The villa is located on Palmetto Point, about the middle of the island, just a ten minute ride to Governors Harbor, a lovely village (the second largest, but still tiny) where fishermen can be found daily around 2:30 pm selling their catch – several varieties of fish and lots of lobsters - to locals, before quickly bringing it to one of the few local small grocers who flash freeze it, so at any time you can purchase delicious fish/lobster.

Well-maintained home

  • 5 of 5

We just returned from a one-week stay at Palmetto Sunrise and can happily recommend it to anyone. This is a very well-maintained home in very good condition. The owners have thought of everything. There is a cell phone with local service for you to use; there was gas in the grill's tank; and descriptions of beaches and local restaurants. Perhaps best of all, their housekeeper was available on call to answer questions, etc. One day we lost air conditioning in a bedroom and the housekeeper arranged to have it fixed right away. We were back and running in a short period of time. One note: While this house has good views and its elevation means there is generally always a nice breeze, this is not an oceanfront property. The owners do own the oceanfront land across the road, however, where there is a deck and oceanfront access you can use.

Owner's Response: Thank for the very nice review of out home Pierce, In response to your point on " one note" As you can see on our ad we do not say the home sets directly on the water as is the case with our other rental The Pink Sand Cottage. Clearly out home sets on a small rise overlooking the Ocean and has a 100 ft walks to the separate dune deck that has two lounge chairs The Villa is 100 feet from the front of our front door to the beach deck You walk down the steps of the villa and cross over the non traveled sandy beach access road that dead ends just past us to the beach deck. This is in response to anyone thinking that our villa sets right on the water It is ocean front with a good view of the ocean from out Villa decks and just a short 100 feet walk to the deck right on the water. We Thank you Ken & Adele owners

Great Place to Vacation

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I just had the most romantic, secluded, perfectly relaxing vacation while renting the Palmetto Sunrise Villa in Eleuthera for 10 days this May 2013. The location was great for visiting Governor’s Harbor, and a short 10-15 minute drive to several great places to eat (we ate out often at Tippy’s and The Beachhouse). The homeowners have been friendly and helpful in every way possible to assist with our planning of activities, from flights into the island to exploring the beaches.

We were most impressed with the large notebook made for guests and used the information in it every day. The book has detailed directions for finding one’s way to the special beaches of Eleuthera (photos of landmarks along the way included), and up-to-date notes on who to talk to for scheduling tours, and recent details on local restaurants. The Palmetto Sunrise Villa is luxuriously furnished, completely well-equipped and decorated in a lovely manner with many tropical paintings and sea-motif arrangements of shells and sea fan. Everything was top notch and meticulously maintained. It is readily evident that the homeowners care deeply about keeping their villa in top condition and it is heartwarming that they are so open to sharing this beautiful island and its many special attractions with guests who are fortunate enough to choose to rent the Palmetto Sunrise for a vacation.

One of our favorite activities was lying out on the chaise lounges when it got dark and gazing up into the incredibly starry night sky. We also enjoyed daily walks both on the roads and along the beaches in both directions from the house. The breeze off the Atlantic was always cool and refreshing. We walked to the nearest restaurant, at the Unique Resort and enjoyed having drinks there. They have a beautiful beach and great views from the restaurant. The best thing about Eleuthera and staying at the Palmetto Sunrise Villa was the harmony with nature, warm climate, friendly people, clear water and escape from crowded civilization to a much more leisurely pace.
