Description of the Tarpum Bay vacation home rental

The Unique Castle in Tarpum Bay, Eleuthera, was formerly the home of Artist Gordon MacMillan-Hughes and was featured in Fodor's Travel guide. Beautifully renovated and modernised in 2012 it still retains the original stained glass windows and decorative doors with a spiral staircase leading up the tower to the artist's favorite room which has natural walls inset with corals and shells. The Castle has 3 bedrooms (but beds for 4), 2 bathrooms, a lounge and large modern kitchen with laundry facilities. Set on a hill, the Castle overlooks the bay front, the settlement of Tarpum Bay and the sea. It is fully air conditioned throughout and has wireless internet and cable TV.

Area Information

Tarpum Bay is a one of the last fishing villages and has a warm and friendly community. 3 miles of beautiful beachfront span the homely village. The open bay front features a reef with superb snorkeling and fishing opportunities, not only this but a number of underwater features such as a blue hole and hydro-vents make this an exciting dive opportunity for anyone. Located in a bay sheltered by reefs, Tarpum Bay offers great diving and snorkeling opportunities. Each evening greets you with a magnificent sunset and the water surface mirrors this beautifully making a serene and tranquil atmosphere. It has a number of restaurants and take-aways with fresh fish purchasable from the dock daily. There are an abundance of small grocers as well as a local clinic and access to other emergency services. Tarpum Bay is just 10 minutes from Rocksound Airport (which is a 20 minute flight from Nassau) and only a 35 minute drive from Governor's Harbour, Eleuthera. There is also a choice of rental cars and fishing charters available.

romantic and modern

I have stayed at the castle twice and both times loved the experience. I have been coming to Eleuthera for many years and enjoyed living in town for a change, being able to walk everywhere and experiencing the local community. The people are friendly and welcoming and I felt very much at home. The castle itself is a romantic place to stay. It is steeped in local history and heritage, and although it looks eccentric on the outside, the inside has been modernized and is very comfortable to live in. The kitchen is large, the bathrooms clean and the bedrooms comfortable. The "garrett" room is a a once in a lifetime experience with views over the Caribbean Sea and the village. I am planning to stay there again this year.
