Palm Bluff is a 2 bedroom (each with a queen bed) one bath house located on a beautiful seaside cliff 5 minutes south of Gregory Town without visible neighbors in any direction. Unlike several other properties in the area that have multiple separately rented houses on the same property or in very close proximity, there are NO other houses on this property, making it exceptionally private!!
Three sets of mahogany french doors open up to an oversized front porch perched 45 feet above the Caribbean sea. Whether you are sitting outside on the porch or inside the house, you will pretty much always have a view of the water.
If you are adventurous, take a walk down down the concrete steps (carved through the limestone cliff) to enjoy the calm water! The snorkeling here is excellent, teeming with tropical fish.
We have four lounge chairs that can either be in the shade on the porch or moved to the concrete decking next to the porch for a full sunbathing experience. There are also 4 aluminum folding beach chairs and a medium-sized hard cooler to take with you to the beach or on daily excursions. To cool off after a day in the sun or at the beach, there is an outdoor shower (cool water only) with a nice view of sea!
Each bedroom is equipped with a very quiet and efficient AC unit and ceiling fan. The living room also has an AC unit which cools the living room and kitchen in addition to ceiling fans. The one bathroom has a rainwater shower, a large sink vanity, and Cuban tile flooring. The kitchen features stainless steel appliances and a farm sink.
The house comes with bedding, towels, beach towels, and a stocked kitchen. There is also a washer and dryer in the adjoining laundry shed for you to use. We have a reverse osmosis (RO) drinking water system in the kitchen, which is incredibly nice for drinking (obviously!), cooking, and making ice in the freezer trays. There is no TV, but we do have WIFI.
We have an excellent caretaker who lives 5 minutes away and he can assist with any questions that may come up during your stay. We have maid service before you arrive, but should you need additional maid service, it can be arranged for an extra fee.
Palm Bluff is located along the cliffs south of Gregory Town and it offers a unique experience (elevated cliff views are rare in the Bahamas). Being on the Caribbean side of the island, there is usually a gentle breeze, and relatively calm water for swimming. Palm Bluff is at the end of Hibiscus Drive (1/4 mile once you turn off of Queen's Highway) on the Caribbean side of the island. The house is one mile from the world-famous Surfer's Beach on the Atlantic Ocean (best waves in winter months, especially when the wind is blowing from the SW).
You cannot get around without a car - and with the 1/4 mile road from Queen's Highway to the house and the 1 mile to Surfer's Beach being very rugged and rough, we highly recommend an SUV with higher ground clearance. We would be happy to provide names of people on the island who rent SUVs and they can arrange you to pickup and drop-off the car at the airport, which is very convenient. Rentals cars are expensive and prices do not fluctuate: $75-90/ day for an SUV. Gas is expensive (as is everything else on the island) - somewhere around $5 per gallon. The rental car process is very informal - there are no rental car agencies, instead you rent cars from individuals.
Gregory town is a 5 minute drive and it offers small convenience stores for groceries, gas, ice, liquor store, hole-in-the wall local restaurants, the fine-dining Cove restaurant, and very friendly people.
The house is a 30 minute drive to the water taxi dock for Harbour Island (5 minute additional water taxi ride to Harbour Island) and to the south, it is also a 30 minute drive to Governor's Harbour. You can fly into either airport, North Eleuthera (ELH) or Governor's Harbour (GHB) as both are about 30 minutes from the house.
There is good bottom-fishing (snapper, grouper, etc) from Gregory Town as well as good deep sea charter options (Tuna, Mahi, Wahoo, e
