REMODEL PLANNED. This lovely old home has one of the best locations on the island. The owners are planning to remodel, but in the meantime, they are offering it for rent at a discounted rate to guests who can tolerate a dated house in exchange for the incredible beachfront location and views.

SPECIAL NOTE FOR SUMMER RENTALS: the main living areas do not have a/c, only the bedrooms and guest house are air conditioned.

Relax in total privacy on a pristine gorgeous beach. Oceanfront family home and separate guest house/art studio directly overlook 165 feet of pink sand beach with gentle clear turquoise sea (protected by coral reef, so great for kids & swimming). Coral powder-soft sand is cool to walk on at all times and there is 5 miles of beach to stroll. Very private location (rarely see neighbors). Windermere Island is a secure gated island community just over tiny bridge from main island of Eleuthera. Bone fishing and snorkeling are at your doorstep.

The architect-designed 'Ho-Hum' house is filled with sunshine and views tucked away amidst the beautiful Bahamian landscape. There are two spacious bedrooms in the main house. The master has a king bed, office nook and private gated garden off master bath with outdoor shower. The 2nd bedroom has 2 twin beds (easily convertible to king). Both bedrooms have en-suite full baths and patios. Bedrooms book-end a large high-ceilinged living room with dining area, full kitchen and gorgeous large sunroom/breezeway with large dining table and sitting area (with a good quality comfortable futon for kids or an extra sleeper). The entire house has a wrap-around ocean view patio for sunbathing and outdoor dining.

A separate guest house/art studio, also overlooking the ocean, is just 100ft from main house. It has 2 twin beds (easily convertible to king) and a small/child-size bed nook. Guest house has kitchenette, full small bath and it's own ocean view patio. There is also a large island with an extra artist's sink and huge wide counter space for artwork projects (some easels available too). Views of the beach and sea are every where!

Amenities include:
WIFI (main house)
TV with DVD player to watch movies
Books and games
Air conditioning (main house in the bedrooms only & in guest house).
Full staffing is available on request.
Easels and some art supplies are available to share/use (please inquire for specifics)
Extra housekeeping available upon request

The village of Savannah Sound is just a few minutes away by car, home of the new and acclaimed Fishbone Beach Bar and Grill, located right on the sound. There’s also a grocery store, Midway Cost Cotters, in Savannah Sound. The towns of Palmetto Point and Tarpum Bay are ten minutes away. Both have several stores and restaurants. The main town of Governors Harbour, 25 minutes away, has grocery stores, restaurants, liquor stores, two banks with ATMs, a bakery, gift shops, a dive shop, and a medical clinic. It has a nice little collection of 19th century homes and churches overlooking a picturesque harbor. You can buy fresh fish and lobster every afternoon from fisherman at the town dock. Friday night Fish Fry in Governors Harbour is a street/beach party that brings together all the tourists and locals with food, drink, and dancing in the street. You won’t want to miss it.

Rates are on a sliding scale based on the number of guests. We set the rates this way to make the property more affordable for smaller groups who use less utilities and put less wear and tear on the house. If you enter the correct number of guests, the reservation system will calculate the rates correctly.

Cicely B. from New London, NH US recommends this vacation rental.

Ho Hum is truly a magical place! My grandparents built this wonderful house back in the late 60s and being able to bring my family here and share this amazing place with them was a once in a life time experience.
The house is still as beautiful and charming as ever and the beach is the just as private and spectacular as when I was a little girl.
As my grandparents used to tell us when we would visit years ago, getting here isn't easy but if it was it wouldn't be so special.
Being at Ho Hum is worth the effort to get there.
The only thing you can do there is get relaxed!
And that is what we did. We swam, snorkled at the reef (we saw sea turtles, rays, an octopus and lots of tropical fish) woke up to stunning sunrises, star gazed at night and simply slowed down.
Ho Hum is island living at it's best.

Ho Hum is a wonderful house steps from the gorgeous beach. It was clean and though a little tired, everything worked and Wallace and Tina who help take care of the house were very responsive and welcoming. A heavenly place to spend a vacation!!

maureen G. from DePere, WI United States recommends this vacation rental.

The Gagnon family arrived a day late due to the our flight was in an hour late. We spent the night in fort Lauderdale. We finally arrived and were thrilled to see the breathtaking views of Ho Hum house. As our week went on we went scuba diving snorkeling swimming and beaching . The house was perfect for our family. We noticed that the house is getting a bit run down and needs some things fixed. We really did not care though because it was fun for us all.
