About the property

Let the world go on without you for a little while...

Steal away to the beautiful little fishing island of Spanish Wells, Eleuthera.

The Palm House is teetering on the shore of a beautiful cove where you can walk forever before the water reaches your waist. A full service grocery store equipped down to the kiwi and wontons is a 5 minute walk away. 3 snack bars and "the Boatyard " restaurant are within walking distance . Harbor Island and lovely Eleutgera are a short ferry ride away.

Paddle boards, kayak, bicycles , and sailboat are provided ... The Home was built on 2002 and furnished with an eye toward a perfect family get away. There are 4 bedrooms and 3 bathrooms with an outdoor shower and very large seaside deck where most of the fun time is spent. There is a large sleeping room for children with bassinet, crib, toddler bed and two full beds in addition to the 3 queen bedrooms. 15 can stay here comfortably. The kitchen is fully equipped for the serious cook , and the home is lovingly decorated in the vintage beach house style. Wifi is fully operational as well as a local phone landline and cable television. Come on down and be our guest. You will love this safe and peaceful ... Visually stunning ... swath of paradise , the likes of which are found no where else in the Caribbean..

Amazing trip

  • 5 of 5

This property is as wonderful as it looks. The house was warm and welcoming. It takes a bit to get to the island from Nassau but it was totally worth it! I think this house is the best home in Spanish Wells especially with the great deck, sand bar and the beautiful, clear water. Our kids could kayak, paddle board and explore without any worry. There were 10 of us (6 kids 11-18) and we were very comfortable in the house. We would recommend renting a golf cart to get around and bring plenty of CASH. The internet was out for a day on the whole island and none of the restaurants, grocery stores or shops could accept credit cards. Also, the one ATM on the island wasn't working for 3-4 days of our trip so it was a bit of a challenge (not a deterrent, though!) The people of Spanish Wells were incredibly nice and accommodating which is a rare find these days.

We did a full day excursion with Bruno Underwood - we went fishing (caught LOTS of fish which Bruno and company cleaned for us), swam with the pigs and went snorkeling. Bruno was a wonderful guide and very knowledgeable about Spanish Wells, the surrounding islands and the water. We highly recommend him!

The owner, Elizabeth, responded quickly to our questions and Kenny and Margo Pinder were very responsive to any needs or questions we had during our stay.

The restaurants on the island were great. Budda's is great for a less expensive meal and drinks. Wreckers has great food and the Ship Yard has wonderful food but be prepared to pay for it (especially when feeding teenagers). Finally, our kids LOVED Papa's Scoops for a soft serve ice cream treat. There are different flavors every night and you just pull up in your golf cart and order.

Our families unanimously agreed that this was our favorite vacation to date! Thank you, Elizabeth, for sharing your home with us. We are so thankful!

Owner's Response: Thank you so much for these lovely thoughts. We fell in love with the breathtaking beauty of Spanish Wells 18 years ago. But beauty alone did not keep us there. The kindness and generosity of the Spanish Wellsmen made us want to build a home there. We are so gratified when others can visit our home and feel the magic. ! Elizabeth And Jim Faiella

Beautiful home with everything you need!

  • 5 of 5

We had a wonderful stay here! Plenty of room for everyone, everything we needed in the kitchen, beautiful deck w/tons of beach towels (which unfortunately we had to wrap up in at times due to wind but that's mother nature). Margo and Kenny were so helpful and Margo's pie is to die for! We enjoyed driving golf carts around the island and meeting the local people. We even grilled fresh lobster at home one night. Our only disappointment was that the (only) ATM never worked the entire time we were in Spanish Wells! So take plenty of cash as the island is expensive and some places prefer cash to credit cards. We would definitely go back! We had grandparents as well as teens with us and all was wonderful!

Truly the perfect spot.

  • 5 of 5

Palm House is even more glorious in person. The set up is by far the nicest we saw on the island. Beautifully decorated, clean, comfortable—Elizabeth was so helpful in every step of our planning and Margo was wonderful too. We’re already trying to find dates for our next trip. A truly perfect vacation. Thanks to Elizabeth for sharing it on VRBO!

We will be back.

  • 5 of 5

What a gem of a place, all photos true to the actual house and outlook. Private, quiet, amazing. We had an outstanding stay for 12 days at Elizabeth and Jim's house. The place has all amenities, is a comfortable and welcoming space. We had 2 families, and there was plenty of space for all. The supermarket is just around the corner, so easy to access groceries. Kenny and Margo, the caretakers on the island, are super helpful and went out of their way to ensure our stay was smooth. Elizabeth is an amazing host, she answered questions quickly, and provided information about the island.

I cannot say enough about this rental, and highly recommend it. We are already talking about returning in 2 years. Thank you, Elizabeth and Jim for sharing your beautiful home with us.

This was a gorgeous home! Very nice and big, and beautifully decorated! There was plenty of room!

  • 5 of 5

Our family of 14 came to stay here and we were completely blessed!! There was plenty of room for all of us for sleeping and gathering for games and meals. The kitchen was lovely and had all the utensils we needed. The beach and the view were matchless! We spent many happy hours in the water and on the deck. We do hope we can come back again!!!

RELAXING PARADISE AT IT'S BEST!

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I were lucky enough to spend a week here in May of 2017 for our 30th Wedding Anniversary. We brought our entire family, which included 2 daughters, a son in law a grandson and a niece. Plus one of my daughters friends. All together there were 7 of us and every single one of had the best vacation ever. The house is amazing. The location CAN NOT BE BEAT! Views of turquoise waters 24/7 were unbelievable. Perfect setting to be able to sit up on the deck and feel safe watching the kids play in the shallow water with out worry. The owner, Elizabeth was a pleasure to deal with and so helpful. Care takers Kenny and Margo were wonderful. Kenny gave us the name of Bruno and Theron Underwood who run Underwood Charters. They took us out on their boat snorkeling a ship wreck, a coral reef and also to swim with the pigs, plus some deep sea fishing. They are a must if you stay here. We have already decided to make this an annual trip and we will be back next year to stay here again as well as go out with Bruno and Theron. I have vacationed in many different places, this is the best place I have ever been by far. Thank you everyone that made this trip wonderful.

From a very happy family from New Hampshire.
