Great vacation at this wonderful home.
Tastefully decorated and house certainly shows owners "special touch".
Wonderful Ocean views with breathtaking sunrises.
Beach offers the best snorkeling we have had on our many trips to Eleuthera.
Sue the maid offered friendly service and was a big help with directions and tips.
We certainly will be back as we booked for next year already.
You will not be disappointed with a stay at this Villa for sure.
Ken and Adele for letting us share you home.
We vacation on beaches around the world, most often in rentals like this one vs. hotels. We can't say enough good things about Palmetto Sunrise. This was one of the most delightful trips out of many that we've had. The Holtermann's provided us with so much information and tips before we even got to Eleuthera. The house was immaculate, with a fully equipped kitchen, tons of linens and towels, great internet access and all of the other amenities needed. There is also a great grill and decks with nice patio furniture surrounding three sides of the house so you can relax up on the decks or on the beach.
The house is up from the ocean. You cross a little sand road (never saw a vehicle on it except ours) and go past their other property and down some steps to get to the gorgeous pink sand beach. In June at least, the tides recede during the peak time of the day to create this marvelous tide pool just a few yards down the beach east from Palmetto Sunrise. The rocks in the ocean create this natural pool that goes from about 4 inches deep gradually to about 4 feet deep. It would be perfect for children to paddle around in, and you can snorkel and play there and even catch some fish that swim in.
We stayed for a week and 5 out of those days we never saw another person as far as our eye could see east or west on the beach, even as far as we walked! The only footprints in the sand were ours as we walked up and down fishing, beach combing and swimming. It truly felt like we owned our own private island when we were on the beach.
Behind the house is a marshy pond with frogs that make the most wonderful sounds at night. Not annoying at all - really fun, and regardless, you only hear them outside if you sleep with the AC on. The AC works great by the way.
The people in Eleuthera are extremely friendly, very very nice and easy going. There are fabulous restaurants all over the island, and thanks the the Holtermann's, there is a ton of information in the house about where to go, what to do, eat, etc. Also, Sue, their property manager, is one of the nicest people on the planet! I left some shorts at the house and Sue went out of her way to get them and mail them to me before she had even received my check for the postage! Talk about service!
To sum it all up, you will absolutely love staying here and you will fall in love with Eleuthera as well. We highly recommend Palmetto Sunrise ... South lake Texas
My husband and I enjoyed eight glorious nights on calm, seductively beautiful Eleuthera. We stayed at Palmetto Sunrise in the centrally-located Palmetto Point area, and are so glad we did.
Firstly, Ken and Adele are excellent communicators when you are booking their home via email and phone. Easy going, professional and lovely people. The home is perfectly represented on this and their personal site.
The home is ideally situated on the Atlantic side of the island (great breeze; never too windy), and within a 15 minute drive to Governor's Harbour. I spent a lot of time at the lovely old Haynes Library when not lazing on the beach platform built specifically for Palmetto Sunrise.
The home will happily accommodate four people, and though we were two we felt very comfortable. Husband took over one bathroom, and I had the other. The master bed was absolute heaven to sleep on. Plenty of drawer and closet space.
The water pressure was excellent and the drinking water is provided. As you see in the photos of the home, there are ceiling fans in every room. We had them on during the day when in the house, with the windows open (screens closed) for a good cross-breeze and used the A/C in the bedroom at night. Fantastic A/C. The photos are very representative of the home.
The kitchen has everything you could want - all silver, dishes, blender, cookware, etc. Satellite TV came in very handy during the royal wedding. Otherwise, we never turned it on.
The inside of the home is gorgeous; nicely laid-out and exceptionally clean. We had every home amenity we could have needed or wanted (flashlights for night walking, laundry, etc.). Inside the home is a book of recommendations for beaches, restaurants, etc. with photos that the owners have taken themselves.
An amazingly luxurious beach is right there in front of the home, across a footpath, about 40-50 yards or so to the Palmetto Sunrise beach platform - with two loungers and a table - right at the beach. Otherwise, exceptionally easy drives to a variety of glorious beaches on either the Atlantic or Caribbean sides. It was very easy access to the Queen's Highway to head north or south and the various restaurants.
In short, the owners are extremely kind with excellent taste (lovely interior design - no wacky Bahamas kitsch), and are true hosts. It was an absolute dream of a vacation at Palmetto Sunrise and we will stay again. We would absolutely recommend this lovely home on Eleuthera. Mary FG
We arrived in Eleuthera on the 15th December via Southern Air to Governor's Harbour. The aircraft was delayed so by the time we had bought some groceries - it was getting dark. I had all my intsructions - and since there were no street lights - we were a little confused. A friendly local went out of his way to point us in the right direction, and so the adventure began. We were very excited about our holiday, and we arrived finally!. We were welcomed with a nice bottle of wine, also - there was milk, eggs, bread, water, butter, and all sorts of goodies in the fridge - how refreshing to arrive and have all these surprises. It was also a treat to find a Christmas tree there to plug in all ready. to go! Everything was lovely - after walking through the villa and looking at the lovely decks - we opened a bottle of wine, and my husband claimed his reading spot by the window with great pleasure. We lit some candles and settled in. The next morning we awoke to a gorgeous view of the ocean - and after breakfast we walked the local beach for over an hour. We found another beach called Double Bay Beach - we drove to it, and we made it our daily walk for one and a half hours every morning. We rented a car from Naaman and we went to different restaurants each day. Tippy's, Beach House, Sunset Restaurant and Cocodi mammas (our favourite). We drove to the Glass bridge, and we made a trip to Spanish Wells another - that was rather cute because we rented a golf cart to get around which was really fun! We barbequed a few times on the lovely Barbeque on the back deck. The view from the back deck was also lovely as there is a lake at the rear of the property. The villa was extremely well equipped - there were beach coolers and deck chairs and all sorts of items that were very useful for a picnic - there was even bug spray and suntan lotion in the cupboard! Also lots of flash lights which are essential. The garden was so lovely - I walked around and looked at the different species of plants - I especially liked the stepping stones which were kind of magical and the wondrous palm tree that was gracefully growing up through the side deck - someone had carefully carved the deck - so it could grow! The garden was the nicest one we had seen in Eleuthera - great work - it blended beautifully with the architecture of the villa - and I am sure it will be more beautiful in the years to come. We highly recommend this villa - thank you for your great welcome. Penelope Halifax nova scotia
Spent two week at this lovely home.
It's the best rental we have stayed at so far on Eleuthera and we have been traveling to the mainland part of the island for 3 of the last 5 years as two were spent in harbour island.
Palmetto Sunrise is very close to all the better places to dine .
Our favotie dining spot was Tippy's
