Eleuthera is ranked “25 Sexiest Beaches in the World” by Forbes Traveler, and awarded the “Best Secret Island On Earth” by Travel and Leisure. The rates listed are for Both Villas, the entire property.

While near by Harbor Island and Spanish Wells offer unique experiences, the main island is a destination for those interested in history and nature. Natural attractions include the Glass Window Bridge, Hatchet Bay Caves and Surfer's Beach in the north, and Ocean Hole and Lighthouse Beach at the south end. Preacher's Cave on the north end was home to the Eleutherian Adventurers in the mid-17th century, and recent excavations have uncovered Arawak remains at the site. There is something here for everyone - whether you simply want to relax in the luxurious surroundings, walk along the beach or partake in the many easily accessible activities. Snorkeling, kayaking, horseback riding on the beach, world-class scuba diving and fishing are just a sample of what the island has to offer.

Fly into Nassau, Bahamas followed by a short flight to Governors Harbor Airport, Eleuthera on either Pineapple Air, Bahamas Air or Southern Air Charter.

About Ken Metz

The people of Eleuthera are kind and friendly. Our staff is welcoming and understanding. All families can come to Windchat and feel at home and accepted. We have put much time and care into the renovations and construction. We open it to guests and hope that you will care for it as you would your own home.

Ken Metz purchased this estate in 2012

Why Ken Metz chose Eleuthera

The Sunrise Villa was built in the 1960 and although it has been completely remodeled it retains it's Bahamian charm and character. The Sunset Villa is newly built and has 360% views of the island. The two villas connected by decking offers guests many gathering venues and privacy (when you want it) for families/friends.

Windchat Villa's offers guests a unique combination of luxury, privacy, peace and beauty. The construction was completed in September of 2014. Please refer to the pricing on the rates page. Rental also includes: Daily Maid service Mon-Sat, Grounds and Beach Keepers and 24/7 Property Manager.

What makes this estate unique

Windchat Villas stand out as an incredibly unique offering in our community. We have invested in creating a luxury experience you and your family/friends will treasure for years to come. Our price includes unique advantages you will not find in any other rental in this area. Please take a look and get back to us if this is suitable for your needs.

1. In Eleuthera it is common to have power outages several times during a week and it is particularly susceptible to the weather. We have installed a generator with enough power to keep you and your family comfortable for days on end.

2. Water supply in Eleuthera can be shut off daily. We have installed a state of the art cistern system with two giant water reservoirs holding 10,000 gallons of water to prevent your inconvenience.

3. The position of the property is at the highest peak on the shoreline and offers unobstructed views of sunrise and sunset.

4. The multi-sport court includes equipment for basketball, tennis and shuffleboard. We also have foosball and ping pong tables for family fun. No one for miles around has this kind of offering and it is available exclusively to you along with one of the few heated pools around, that comes with a view that overlooks the ocean through the tops of 30 feet tall palm trees.

5. The landscaping is exquisitely designed and maintained 6 days per week, giving you a precisely manicured experience during your stay, very different from any other property in this area.

6. We have spared no expense to provide a home with furnishings that are new and in perfect repair, with new linens and upholstery which is also a different experience to most of the rentals in this area.

7. The beach in front of the property is cleaned and maintained daily and kept clear of any garbage or debris that may wash up on the shore.

8. We are committed to maintaining everything in working order, so you do not find your vacation compromised by any frustrations or inconvenience.

This place is amazing!

  • 5 of 5

Wow this place is amazing! It was like having our own private resort. Everything was beautiful and in excellent condition. The caretaker Del and his two helpers went out of their way to make our stay flawless. Everyone that was there wants to come back next year for a reunion. If you get the opportunity you need to book this place. It will be a trip you will never forget. Special thanks Ken and Forest for letting us rent your lovely home!

House, location and amenities are great.

  • 5 of 5

The house is very well kept. All the rooms are comfortable and cozy. The pool area is perfect to relax if you're not interested in taking a few steps down to the beach, which I would define as private because only a few neighboring houses have access to it. The pool area is adjacent to the tennis/basketball court for those that are more active. Location wise, the house is not far from several nice restaurants that can be a change from the great meals prepared by the home cook, Shauna. Perfect for adults and also families with kids. We had a great time and would suggest staying at Windchat Villas anytime. Wonderful vacation.

What an incredible vacation spot

  • 5 of 5

We had so much fun at this property. There were only 4 of us so we only used one of the houses but this was such a great vacation that we didn't want to come home. Everything about the place was just incredible. The staff was great as they made us feel so welcome and they took very good care of us, especially Del who picked us up and dropped us off at the airport and ran us around wherever we wanted to go. The beach was very private as we only saw 3 people the whole week we were there and the pool and the basketball court were a big hit. I highly recommend renting this property but I'm hesitant to say that so it isn't booked when we want to come back.

All around wonderful property!

  • 5 of 5

This property is so well-kept. It was such a beautiful property. We loved having Del to help us with learning the island and any needs we had. It was so clean when we arrived and such a treat to have the housekeeper come everyday. The weather was wonderful and the breezes off the Atlantic really keep the house cool. The gardener and Del were so nice and it was wonderful that they gave us fresh coconuts and papayas while sitting by the pool. I'm am confident after touring the island that this is the best place on the island to stay!

Great Vacation

  • 5 of 5

This property is amazing. We stayed a week in June and had the best vacation. We were a little hesitant about the destination at first because of the somewhat limited information and limited first hand accounts, but were beyond pleased with Eleuthera. Ken, the Owner, was a pleasure to deal with and was very helpful. The property is about 20 minutes from GHB airport so if you can fly in and out of GHB it will be much more convenient. You can even stop by the grocery in Governor's Harbour on your way in. You are probably about 75-90 Minutes from ELH. Two of our group flew in there and Del picked them up

Everything was perfect about the property was excellent. The views are gorgeous. The grounds were well maintained and the beach was unbeatable. We had the entire beach to ourselves for the first 4 days of our stay. During the last half of our stay there was another family that was renting an adjacent house, but we only saw them from time to time. We visited several other beaches on the island. All were gorgeous and secluded, but our party was convinced that Windchat's beach was the best.

The people of Eleuthera were extremely friendly and welcoming. This can be seen firsthand through the Windchat staff. Del, the caretaker, was great. He stopped in everyday to see if there was anything we needed and organized the other staff members. Del would voluntarily do little things to make the stay incredible. He brought us homemade desserts, cut down some coconuts and made us coconut and rum drinks, took my rental to the gas station when he noticed a tire was low to fill it up for me. Not to mention all of the great advice he gave us about the island. Michael and Felix, the gardeners, were so polite when they were there and would take beach chairs and kayaks to the beach in the morning while we were enjoying our morning coffee. We didn't see Patrice, the housekeeper, much because she always came when we were on the beach, but she did an excellent job in keeping the houses neat.

Ken recommended Shauna as a private chef. She came a couple of nights and did a great job and was very reasonable. It was nice to lounge in the pool right up to dinner time and then enjoy a great meal. There are also several good dinner options within a 5-30 minute drive.

If you are considering Windchat don't bother looking any further. You will love it. We will definitely come back.
