Description of the Governor's Harbour vacation home rental
Casuarina Bay is an exceptionally beautiful, secluded hideaway on the island of Eleuthera, in the Bahamas.
Just two lovely houses share this very private bay on the Atlantic, skirted by miles of pink sand beaches.

The house affords a spectacular view of the Atlantic Ocean from every room, amidst a picturesque grove of coconut palms, colorful hibiscus, fragrant frangipani flowers, sea grape and Casuarina trees.

The Beachfront House at Casuarina bay was designed and built to savor the incredible natural unspoiled beauty of Eleuthera. It's only 20 yards from its own pink-sand beach, so wherever you are in the house you have breathtaking views in all directions. To the east you see the turquoise ocean and glistening beach. Looking to the west your eyes rest on untouched green hills and colorful Caribbean sunsets. At night the brilliance of the stars and moon are unforgettable.

The house is built on a 14 acre estate stretching across to the ocean on other side of the island. The property is filled with lush plants and fragrant tropical flowers. You can relax on our many decks, private beach or in the thatched cabana, where there is a freshwater shower. There is a BBQ area over looking the water and outdoor dinning areas on the deck, in the garden and on the beach.

Guestbook

We just returned from our third visit (15 days) at Casuarina Bay; the weather was warm with south-easterlies so there was lots of great surf sounds, swimming and simple beach-time. The house is beautiful in its yellow and white attire; a true Bahamian beach-house, with comfortable deck furniture appropriately matching the house; and, as before, nothing tops having a shower at the cabana before walking the 63 steps to the porch for a pina colada. We were able to buy a lot of fish at the dock in Governor's Harbour so we had some excellent grouper, conch, crayfish and snapper dinners on the porch. Governor's Harbour also continues to have its Friday Night Fish Fry - a great informal time for eating, drinking rum bubbas and dancing. We also thoroughly enjoyed the new Beachhouse restaurant, which has great views, fair prices, welcoming staff and interesting/ tasty tapas. We dined there four times; including one evening when we walked home, wading along in the warm breeze under a full moon. Casuarina Bay is truly one of the earth's most magic places! Thanks from all six of us; it was totally delightful.

Casuarina Bay offers a true glimpse of the "real" Bahamas. A perfect setting for our family get away. There is a television, but it was refreshing to see my 3 boys opting to be OUTSIDE (day and evenings) on the perfect beach doing what kids don't do enough of these days. It's always difficult to pull ourselves away from Eleuthera.

Serenity! We had a wonderful stay at the Beachfront House. Perfect weather. There was no need to explore the Island or look for other beaches. The beach was stunning and virtually deserted. The old Club Med beach is equally impressiveâwe strolled along its entire length without meeting a soul! The swimming was perfect; we enjoyed snorkeling among the coral reefs just off the beach. We walked to Governor's Harbour for supplies; the fresh lobster bought on the dock was a special treat. The House was very comfortable; the soothing breezes were superior to air conditioning! Alas, we could only read a handful of the books in the remarkable library.

My husband and I stayed at The Beach House on Casaurina Bay while on our honeymoon in May,2009. We were not disappointed.
The location is perfect. We felt very secluded, yet Governor's Harbour is only a short drive away. We loved being beach front and used the cabana often. We cooked many of our meals at the house and found the kitchen to be well equipped. Many evenings were spent on the porch enjoying the breeze.
We found the Beach House to be very charming.
Taja was very helpful in answering any questions we had before our stay, and was quick to follow up afterwards to make sure everything went well. Edgar, the caretaker, was also very helpful. We would definitely recommend to others!

I grew up on Hog Island (now Paradise Island) near Nassau and watched the place slowly deteriorate over the years. Our stay at Casuarina Bay was like coming home again, the way I remembered it from the fifties and sixties...even better in some ways. It is truly a magical unspoiled spot.
On the practical side, we loved the informal, cozy design of the wooden house especially the upstairs southern bedroom open to the breezes and getting both the rising sun in the morning and the setting sun at night. We had brought several books but ended up browsing the fantastic house library instead. Everything worked perfectly, and Edgar the caretaker was very helpful. Can't wait to go back.

My wife and I spend 8 days (not enough)
at the end of March/beginning of April
2010. I wish I could wake up in that
bed and see the ocean like that
everyday. The house is top notch in
every way, much to big for a couple, but
we enjoyed the space! Furnishings and
fixtures were perfect. The beach is
right there across the track of a road
that eventually leads you to paradise.
We enjoyed the jungle bush out back and
the feeling of total isolation. Lots of
birds, lizards and the occasional
potcake to keep us company though. The
beach is gorgeous; wished it had been
warmer to enjoy it more.

Interesting stairway to the upstairs; we
developed many new muscles!

We loved the place!

-Graham Dawson, Berwyn, PA

My five longtime friends from highschool and I,
spent six wonderful days at this captivating place in
paradise !! the house had everything we needed,
very nicely decorated and the views breathtaking!
The beach is just stepps from the house, no need to
even wear shoes, and the house very private which
is just what we wanted. The snorkling was great
too.

Jeff and I were here in Aug 2007 and we got engaged here then. This time we came back to get married and we brought with us more than 40 loved ones and friends. This place is a little piece of heaven on earth. Truly magnificent and full of such great energy. Every person who came down for the wedding fell in love with both Eleuthera and Casuarina Bay and have all vowed to come back and bring others. Thank you and your family- you have helped bring ours even closer this week.

This was my first time back in a few years and all I can say is "WOW". The natural beauty of Casuarina Bay never ceases to take my breath away, but it was really nice to see how the houses have been kept up so well. Each house has a new, beautifully "Caribbean" paint job. The colors compliment the sand, sea, and the gorgeous hibiscus and various flowers. I love the new signs!
As always we loved eating our lunches under the Cabana on the beach. It's a great way to please the whole family because there's shade and sun and you don't have to eat in the sand...but you're 15 steps from the crystal clear water! I will always remember fondly hunting for Mangoes, kayaking, and the bonfires on the beach. It's the only place I've been on vacation where you basically have a private beach. The beach at Casuarina Bay is so quiet and secluded, it's hard not to feel like a V.I.P. This place is truly magical and it's so great to see that it is constantly being nourished. Each time I think it can't get better...then I come back and they've improved upon what I thought was already perfection. I look forward to coming back again and again! Thanks for an unforgettable vacation!!

"We had a fantastic vacation at your beachfront home. I don't think I have ever seen a more beautiful place in my life. We had an awesome time and would encourage others to experience such overwhelming beauty." Joan- Streamwood, IL

"What a perfect break from Pittsburgh winter as well as our usually hectic pace. It was a rare opportunity to be together without interruptions and share the beauty of this magical place. Beauty beyond words, the colors, water, sand, sky, watching the Atlantic meet the Caribbean, the sunsets, the sunrises, the lizards, the shells, the flowers, the fish- all the best!"
Dawn, Ciara and Morgan -Pittsburg, PA

"We had an absolutely perfect time. We have recommended Casuarina Bay to many of our friends and family. We hope to return next year."
Mike- Jacksonville, FL

"The House was fantastic. The sand, beach water, snorkeling, locals and "da fish fry" were nothing less than perfect. Thank you for the opportunity to visit such a wonderful place. The visit was exactly what all of us needed."
-Gary
