About the property

3 Bedrooms, 2 Baths, Sleeps 6

Welcome to Allamanda House! Upon entering the front steps of the house, you are greeted with old world charm and local elegance. The house is built with its original stonework, made from the local island coral stone. To the right you will find an outdoor shower, hidden under a lovely blanket of Allamanda flowers. There is also a gas grill here for your convenience, located by the door that opens into the kitchen. Feel free to help yourself to the fresh rosemary bush that grows there! Further to the right, there are steps leading to the covered car port.

To the left of the front steps there is a screened porch with sweeping views of the Atlantic Ocean. From this porch there is direct access to a large private sun-deck and, beyond it, down steps and a short path, to the pool. All of the furniture on the screened porch has been carefully chosen and acquired locally from island craftsmen and artisans. Take advantage of the outdoor seating and dining table to enjoy your meals “al fresco” (there are three ceiling fans for your comfort).

There are three sets of French doors that open from the porch into the house. The first French door brings you to the grand living/dining room with beautiful ocean views. It is again designed to give you a true island feel, furnished and decorated with local art. The living room has three large windows that provide lots of natural light. There is a television with a DVD player. The dining room table comfortably seats 6 people, situated next to the large and fully equipped kitchen.

Past the living/dining room and through the second set of French doors, there is the first of two bedrooms with twin beds. This bedroom features beautiful ocean views. The beds are one of a kind, built with original local pieces of drift wood and with ambrosia bedding. At the end of the room, you will find the linen closet with a washer and dryer. Next to the linen closet is the bathroom which is shared with the second bedroom (the bathroom is located in between the two twin bed rooms).

The second bedroom is similar to the first bedroom, with two twin beds and ambrosia bedding. This bedroom has a garden view and a door that gives access to the back yard.

The master bedroom, with an en-suite bathroom, is accessed from the front porch through the third set of French doors for ultimate privacy. (It does not connect internally to the rest of the house.) The bed frame is also made with collected driftwood and ambrosia beddings. It features a canopy/mosquito net if you wish to open the doors during the night to enjoy the ocean breeze. This bedroom has beautiful views of the ocean, similar to that seen from the porch.

Every room in the house is equipped with its own AC unit and ceiling fan. Other amenities include WIFI, landline pone, and a TV with a DVD player (but no satellite or cable TV), and TWO SEA KAYAKS!

Allamanda is just 100 feet from a large and lovely pool. It is shared with several other homes, but in practice it is used only occasionally, and you will probably have it entirely to yourself most of the time. A five minute walk takes you to Sky Beach Club's excellent beachfront/poolside restaurant and bar, which has poolside service. Other nearby fine dining includes Tippys and 1648, both less than 10 minutes by car. The historic town of Governors Harbour, less then three miles away, has other restaurants, grocery stores, banks with ATMs, gift shops, liquor stores, dive shop, bakery, and restaurants. Buy fresh fish and lobster every afternoon from the fisherman on the village dock. And don’t miss Friday night fish fry, a weekly beach/street party that brings together tourists and locals for food, drink, and dancing in the street.

Guestbook comments from the manager

Our being in Eleuthera Beachfront Paradise Allamanda was great! The house is comfortable and cosy and environment is wonderful. There was enough space for us. The pool is very clean and huge, the beach only few steps from the house.The host is very caring and friendly. We can recommend Beachfront Paradise Allamanda for everybody.

Owner's Response: We were unaware that there was an issue with the pool during these dates. But in general, this pool is well maintained and beautiful for swimming year round.

Great house and location

  • 5 of 5

We just spent 11 nights at Allamanda House with our three teenagers. It's really lovely. The screened porch is about 60 feet long and is where we spent all of our time. The view is beautiful. The huge pool is at the bottom of a set of stairs and the beach is a 1 minute walk down the community road. An unexpected bonus was the boat ramp on the Caribbean side of Wykee Estates. We went over there almost every day and our teenagers had a great time jumping off the cliffs/rocks into the water. We snorkeled over there as well. The kitchen was well stocked with all the amenities we needed. The property manager and housekeeper each checked in with us every couple of days to see if we needed anything. The house is historic and charming as stated in the description so if you value gleaming new cabinets, showers and granite countertops, this is not the house for you. If you value a nice, relaxing vacation in a lovely home in a beautiful location, then rent Allamanda House.

Beautiful view, lovely neighborhood

  • 4 of 5

We just returned from a wonderful week stay in Allamanda House with 2 of our children (ages 16 & 24). The house itself is quaint and charming with a beautiful view. The Wykee Estates neighborhood is quiet and very well kept with lovely vegetation. We met several other couples staying in other homes in the neighborhood, all of whom said they would come again. We will definitely be back! Matt and Tara are super easy to work with and made the booking process run smoothly.

Absolutely perfect island getaway!

  • 5 of 5

We stayed at Allamanda for one month. We are very lucky. We did not know much about Eleuthera or the Bahamas before we went, nor had we ever done VRBO/Homeaway. Our vacation could not have been more perfect and we attribute most of that to ALLAMANDA HOUSE!

The house is just like the pictures.. and more. We loved all the Bahamian art, furniture, etc. But beyond all, we loved the screened in porch that extended the entire house. Two bedrooms and the living room face the porch. You can hear the waves all day, the porch is never in the sun, so it is always a nice temperature, it has fans, lights, and three different seating areas. This will now become my true ideal for a vacation! And I am even now looking for a home that has similarities!

The pool was just a few steps down from the house. This is the only house in the 8-house neighborhood that has direct access to the pool. It feels like YOUR OWN! And then a few more steps and you have the beach. You can bounce back and forth. Perfection! As for the beach, we experienced big waves and more calm days. A little of both. The sand was so soft and pink. Beyond sensational!

The Sky Club is next door. We loved going there. It turns out its actually open to the public! (We thoughts wed have to buy a drink). So we would go there in morning and swim and/or hot tub. And of course eat there throughout trip.

The gardens on the property were lovely and fun to explore. The caretaker was there to help! Matt, the property manager could not have been more helpful in selecting a house for us or helping answer questions along the way. This location is great because it is in the middle of the island. So you can get to north or south in an hour. And you can hit all the fun events during week without a long drive. A lot happens right around this area so it is a good place.

I have been telling people, this is the first time I have done on vacation and not had "house or hotel envy." We loved every inch of this house and the experience it provided us! It was a true vacation and gave us the opportunity to live island life, if just for a little while. THANK YOU FROM THE BOTTOM OF OUR HEARTS FOR SHARING YOUR HOME WITH US!
