Welcome to “Wreckless”. This family home, built in 1968, was originally a two bedroom “guest house” for the Potlatch Club, a boutique resort popular in the 1960’s and 70’s. It still has some of the original antiques that were typical of British Colonial decorating style of that time. Countless upgrades have been done over the years and two additions were added to the house the most recent a second floor bedroom in 2015.

Wreckless features a beautifully maintained private tennis court, for use by our guests only. Wreckless is a 3 minute walk on a private path to a spectacular pink-sand beach which is usually deserted. The beach is protected by an outer barrier reef and also has a smaller reef within snorkeling distance. A 3 minute walk will also take you to famous Tippy’s beachfront restaurant and bar.

Wreckless is located on the prestigious Banks Road, just 2 miles from Governors Harbour, Eleuthera’s main town, with restaurants and shops. There is live music at one of the restaurants or little resorts in the area most nights of the week.

You are greeted at Wreckless by our vast wrap-around veranda with outdoor seating and dining areas. From the deck, enter the great room with its original hardwood floors and row of east-facing windows. The living and dining areas offer comfortable seating for six adults. A small but highly efficient and fully stocked kitchen is adjacent to the dining area. It is equipped with all appliances including a dishwasher, microwave, and blender.

There is a bedroom either end of the great room, both with access to the rear veranda. One has two twin beds and an en-suite bath with a tub/shower combination. The twin beds can be converted to a king bed upon request. The other bedroom has a king bed and an en-suite bath with a walk-in shower. On the second floor there is a third bedroom with a king bed, an en-suite bath with a walk-in shower, and a great view of the ocean.

The fourth bedroom is a children’s room furnished with two twin beds and a crib. It has a small en-suite bathroom with a walk-in shower.

Although the house has 4 bedrooms, the living and dining areas are not designed for a party of 8 adults. We recommend a maximum of 6 for all-adult groups. The house is also comfortable for a group of 4 adults and 4 children.

Amenities include WIFI, AC throughout, cable TV, washer/dryer, crib, gas grill, lots of books & games, DVD/CD, beach chairs, and tennis rackets. Bring your ipod and tennis balls.

"Amazing place to stay
My husband and his siblings (ages 66-74) had not vacationed together since childhood, so I suggested Eleuthera as a venue. Wreckless is a good central location for exploring the vastness of this beautiful island. The house is well appointed with full kitchen, extra linens, books galore, beach chairs, washer & dryer, and so many amazing plants to admire and explore. There is a tennis court, though none of us play. If you do, it looks to be in top condition. Very short walk to the gorgeous beach. We spent a couple of full days there just enjoying the solitude.

The beds are quite firm, but not uncomfortable. Bedrooms are roomy and beautifully decorated.

Things I’d recommend: go to tippys at least once; buy groceries in Governor’s Harbour and cook your own breakfast, but also visit Baccus Fine Foods for eggs Benedict in the morning and, later, sandwiches to take to the beach. Drive the entire island and enjoy the variety of beaches. For a calm Caribbean day, choose Cocodimama beach. It’s spectacular. Don’t miss the fish fry on Friday night.

What we didn’t like: pascals was a let-down. The bartender, Sammy was amazing, but food service was beyond island time and after 3 hours we requested our remaining entrees to go.

You can’t go wrong choosing Wreckless as your home away from home. "

"Our rental at Wreckless - 26 Dec - 2 January 2021
We were extremely disappointed in our stay at this rental - the house was nice and spacious - however the caregiver Anne was not helpful at all. She neglected to tell us the oven wasn’t working prior or upon our arrival which resulted in chaos on New Year’s Eve - we also had a gas leak - the bbq was disgusting and had to be cleaned AND fixed by my husband - the ac in master bedroom wasn’t working - there were other issues but our main grievance was the total lack of concern or calls from the caregiver - we had to resort to contacting the owners while there - and even then- we would get late nite answers to our emails that didn’t help us at all - their response was always - ‘well u know u are renting in a rural out island’ - total cop out as we are Bahamians and know about living in our islands - they refused to give us any type of credit based on our complaints - great house though! Which made it even more frustrating ��"

"Family Time
Wreckless is a wonderful home in a great location. The caretaker, grounds keeper and house keepers were nice and the house was very clean. The beds were firm and we all slept well. The tennis court was a really nice addition. The home is very well equipped and the beautiful antiques,wall decorations and ambience of the home was comfortable. The private beach Path, beach and snorkeling were all exceptional."
