Overview & Photos

Shangri-La is a beautiful Bahamian home, located on Old Banks Road, steps from the Atlantic Ocean. The house is surrounded by coconut palms and a meadow that stretches to the Atlantic Ocean. Walk two minutes from the wrap around deck and a magnificent ocean view unfolds.

Upon arriving to Eleuthera, our property managers will meet you at the Banana Beach Estates gate. You will be greeted with complimentary Bahamian drinks and appetizers. Our staff is utterly lovely and they make every effort to make sure you are well taken care of. Save on booking fees by reserving through Eleuthera Vacation Rentals and paying the owner directly.

Once you enter Shangri-La you will be welcomed by the airiness of the twenty-eight foot ceiling and coastal decor. The open concept living, dining, and newly remodeled kitchen will allow you to enjoy your vacation with all your family. Enjoy the smart tv with access to your Netflix account or use our new Fire Stick with numerous international and local channels as well as free Pay Per View movies. Connect to the web by way of free internet.

The two, large bedrooms have ensuite bathrooms. The master suite has a king size four poster bed, while the second suite has two queen sleigh beds. The master suite has a beautifully renovated ensuite washroom with a large walk-in glass shower. Eleutheran conch shells are embedded in the shower floor. Custom woodworking, by a local craftsman, completes the coastal theme. For those who need extra sleeping space, the open loft has a queen and twin bed. A third washroom, with a washing machine, can be found on the main floor. An additional shower is located outside to rinse off beach sand.

Shangri-La is equipped with ceiling fans and air conditioning throughout. Both bedrooms have a/c units, and the loft has a new a/c which cools the loft and below. Beautiful linens, bath and beach towels have been chosen with attention to quality. The coastal furniture, linens, and Bahamian artwork make for an authentic island getaway.

The kitchen is equipped with cookware, cutlery, coastal dishes, spices, and tropical glassware. The dining room table accommodates six people and additional seating for two at the breakfast peninsula.

The wrap around deck is a perfect spot for listening to the ocean's waves, grilling dinner, and enjoying al fresco meals on the outdoor dining table. Children can enjoy playing on the grass, exploring the neighborhood, or taking walks along this safe cottage road. Relax on the two-person hammock and read a book or have a nap while the palm trees sway in the breeze. Enjoy the quiet and relaxing atmosphere of Shangri-La away from any crowds.

A short walk along the path will take you to a deserted, white sand beach that extends for miles. Bring along Shangri-La's beach chairs and cooler. Spend your day in the turquoise water enjoying swimming, snorkeling, watching the dolphins, or beachcombing. You’re likely to be the only people there. A short drive away is French Leave Beach, Twin Coves, Naval Beach, and the calm waters of Cocodimama.

A ten-minute walk takes you to Sky Beach Club and Pascal's Restaurant, FREE access to the infinity pool, hot tub, and swim-up bar. Ask Sammy to make you one of his famous Bahamian drinks. Plus, Shangri-La is only a few minutes' drive from the lovely town of Governor's Harbour, with its century homes, selection of restaurants, and stores.

For larger groups we offer additional rooms in our guest cottage. Orchid Cottage has two bedrooms, one bathroom, and an open concept living and dining area. Each property offers nice privacy, with large palm trees and foliage between the two. This allows a larger group extended space and privacy to celebrate a special occasion.

Enjoy a catered meal and Bahamian cocktails at Shangri-La. The caterers will shop for local seafood and produce, prepare the meal, and provide clean up. A Bahamian experience that will be enjoyed.

Laura B. from New York, NY United States recommends this vacation rental.

This home is exactly as the photos show-creatively designed and nicely appointed. The myriad ceiling fans were usually enough--we only turned the AC on to sleep. The house has a coffee maker and plenty of dishes. The knives in the kitchen do need to be sharpened. There are a million towels and pillows and linens to choose from. Driving thru 2 gates to get to the house made us feel safe. The cottage on site is clearly separated from the main house--plenty of privacy. We tried many other beaches but in the end the beach around the corner from this house was ideal: clean, empty, long and pink. The water was calm and clean and warm--so easy to bob around with a noodle and just talk. We saw turtles, rays and small sharks. The house had many beach chairs, noodles and an umbrella. The beach was ideal and lovely. We appreciated the outdoor shower after the beach. The insects are no joke so spray the second you step outside and reapply. We reported a few minor issues which were resolved quickly. I would stay here again--you won't find a nicer beach on Eleuthera.

  • Manager Responded on 3/2/2024

    Thank you very much for your wonderful review of Shangri-La. We couldn't agree with you more that our beach is really amazing and our favorite beach on Eleuthera. The sea life is truly incredible, and we're so happy that you experienced a variety of it. It is always so quiet, a great place for a long walk, snorkeling, or boogie boarding. Thank you for the kind comments about the house, kitchen amenities, and our location on Old Banks Road. We hope to welcome you back again very soon.

Vicky M. from Kent, Ohio United States recommends this vacation rental.

I keep coming back to this house and for good reason. Because it's better than perfect. The house is in excellent condition and is consistently upgraded. Every time I come there is something new. This time the deck was newly painted and as well as the kitchen and a new mural on the wall. Every thing you could need to make your vacation better is supplied. From rafts,new beach chairs, umbrellas, sunscreen and 2 coolers.
The bedrooms are huge and both have their own bathrooms. The loft can sleep 3 and is perfect for kids. The deck has a couch
2 loungers and a table that seats 6. This is a perfect home in a perfect location. The best part of this rental is the team that takes care of the property.
Chad the house manager greets us every year on check in day. She remembers each returning guest and caters exclusively to your needs.
Rosalee make sure the house is spotless. She even came by midweek and asked us if our sheets needed changing. Her husband is there every morning raking the yard and watering plants.
I don't know how they consistently make it better year after year.
This house feels like home to me. It's full of love and that comes from the team that cares for it.Thank you for another perfect visit.

  • Manager Responded on 5/3/2023

    Thank you, Vicky, for returning to Shangri-La year after year. Our staff always looks forward to your visit and they take great pride in making your stay better than the one before. I am so happy that you noticed the upgrades, including the newly renovated kitchen, the tropical mural leading to the loft and the rejuvenated deck. We want our home away from home to be loved and enjoyed by our guests, so we are always making improvements. The deck becomes an extension of the indoor space, allowing everyone to gather for a meal or soak up the sun, while enjoying the huge coconut palms swaying in the breeze. It is an important gathering space, so we decided to add loungers for those who like to sun bathe, the sectional for reading a book, and the dining set for family meals. The deck has a spot for everyone. We appreciate all of the details that you have shared in this review. It gives others a clear idea of what to expect on their vacation. On behalf of Chad, Rosalie, and John, I thank you for your wonderful words. We look forward to seeing you again next year.

Cheryl B. from Burlington, Ontario Canada recommends this vacation rental.

We had the pleasure of staying at this lovely villa for 2 glorious weeks. We were a group of 4 and stayed here very comfortably. It could easily accommodate more. We found the place incredibly tidy and clean and extremely well maintained. The kitchen was very well-equipped with everything you need for meals cooked in. It was complete with an outdoor gas barbecue. All systems functioned to an exceptional level including the gas oven, air conditioning units and we so appreciated the consistent water pressure and constant ceiling fans to help with air circulation. We cannot say enough about how much we enjoyed our stay, just minutes from a beautiful beach. We would definitely entertain a subsequent visit. Thanks so much to the house manager Lachadra and her team.

  • Manager Responded on 5/7/2023

    A two-week stay at Shangri-La is the perfect amount of time to explore Eleuthera and also spend time relaxing. I am so happy that you found our home away from home clean and well maintained. Our staff takes great pride in keeping excellent care of the interior and exterior of the property. Thank you for mentioning our well-equipped kitchen and outdoor grill, along with how well the house functioned. It's important to have good functioning a/c units, ceiling fans, and consistent water pressure, so that everyone is comfortable. Our beach is truly beautiful and just a hop, skip, and a jump away, making those quick trips back to Shangri-La for a cold Kalik easy. It was a pleasure having a group of Canadians stay with us. We look forward to welcoming you back.

Chapel C. from Hixson, TN United States recommends this vacation rental.

Shangri-la was a lovely, comfortable home centrally located on Eleuthera. Our neighbors were delightful and introduced us to the house and property. Lachadra, the property manager, was very helpful and welcoming. (We also rented a car from her company, Cadet Rentals, and were pleased.) Something to be aware of when you visit Eleuthera is that the power grid can be sketchy. We experienced several power outages during our time on the island--we had forgotten about this. We felt fortunate that the layout of the house was open and there were screen doors we could open for ventilation. We kept the bedroom doors closed so the cool air would not escape and this worked out well. I will admit to being a smidge jealous of another neighbor's generator. lol. The house was comfortable and exactly what we needed--highly recommended!

  • Manager Responded on 8/23/2023

    Thank you for choosing to stay at Shangri-La on the beautiful out island of Eleuthera. Our central location makes it easy to explore the north and sound parts of Eleuthera and we are only a seven-minute drive from the GHB airport. Lachadra, the property manager, takes great pride in her work and loves to meet our guests. The power outages are up and down on the island, but never dampen our day. We enjoy spending lots of time exploring the island's gorgeous beaches, blue holes, Bahamian settlements, as well as spending countless hours on our own quiet beach. We have spent many weeks on the island, without any outages. Thank you for highly recommending Shangri-La. We are so happy that the house was comfortable and was exactly what you and your family needed.

Cheryl M. from Warm Springs, GA United States recommends this vacation rental.

My group of 4 stayed at Shangri-La for a week. The house was very clean, well kept, and the perfect size for our group. We had an issue with the washing machine and when I contacted the owner, she sent someone out the next day. Unfortunately the machine was not fixed but we had plenty of towels to use the rest of the week. The beach was just a short walk across the street and was stunning. I would stay here again!

  • Manager Responded on 8/23/2023

    Thank you for choosing to stay at Shangri-La for your week-long-vacation. Rosalie did a wonderful job preparing SL for your stay, putting her special touches to each room. When she heard of the difficulties with the washing machine, she went over to see if she could assist. Unfortunately, it was a job for a repairman. Luckily he was able to replace the burnt gears and have it up and running again for you. The linens, beach towels, and bath towels are plentiful in Shangri-La. It's important to us to have lots of extras on hand for our guests. The beach is truly stunning! It's hard to describe the beauty of the white sand and turquoise water. We look forward to welcoming you back to the island. Thank you for staying with us.

Eugene B. from United States recommends this vacation rental.

This home is simply terrific. Have stayed on this property for 5 years running. It is only about 100 yards to walk to the beach along a clear but lush pathway AND a short road or beach walk to PASCAL'S restaurant and Sammy's Bar. The property is maintained with excellence - clean, bright well appointed. Nice linens and bath items throughout. Some folding beach chairs welcome for visits to the incredible (and extremely uncrowded) beaches. The local management personnel are a breath of fresh air in that they are very friendly and accommodating - they truly want your stay to be a vacation and stress free. Cannot recommend this spot highly enough. We will return next year, and the next year, and......

  • Manager Responded on 1/27/2020

    Thank you for the five star review of Shangri-La. It's obvious that you love the location, amenities, and beach as much as we do. Having access to the infinity pool, hot tub, and Pascal's Restaurant is a great feature of Shangri-La. Sammy's pina coladas and fun-loving personality, is always a highlight for many visitors. We enjoy decorating the home with a coastal flair and providing our guests with the best experience possible.The beach is so close and as you said, so quiet. It's a beautiful spot to walk for miles, search for beach finds, swim, boogie board, or just enjoy sitting on the beach chairs with a cooler bag. Our Bahamian management takes great pride in preparing the house, meeting you at the airport, and being of assistance if needed. Thank you for choosing Shangri-La year after year. We look forward to your return in 2021.

Vicky M. from Kent, Ohio United States recommends this vacation rental.

Another incredible week at Shangri La. This was my second time renting this house. And my 6th visit to Eleuthera. It was better then perfect. It didn't think it could get better then the first visit but somehow the owner and house manager figured that out. I was again impressed on how they do it. The house is located on the best part of the island, mid point so exploring is easy. It takes 90 minutes to get to Lighthouse and about the same to reach Ben Bay. The house comes with everything you need to explore with ease. A large cooler for your longer days out or a mini cooler for beach days in front of the house. House came fully equipped with beach chairs, umbrella, snorkel gear, rafts, beach bags and even freezer packs for cooler! Forget your water shoes or hat at home? Well there are plenty of extras at the house along with extra sunscreen and bugspray.
The porch as always was the gathering spot from early morning coffees to evening drinks. Plenty of sitting room inside as well, with weather being perfect we never actually sat inside. We ate most meals in because it was easier for us being vegan. The kitchen is well stocked for cooking.
I cannot explain how incredible this house is. I will be back again and again. Many thanks to the whole team that made my week the best. Much respect.

Catherine W. from Nassau, NP Bahamas recommends this vacation rental.

This was the perfect place to spend a week's vacation to relax and truly wind down. Travel options in 2020 had to be thought through carefully and we were glad to find Shangri-La. The property is in a private gated community. We were surprised at how short a walk it is to the beautiful beach from the property – the owners have thought of everything as beach chairs, shades, toys, floats were kept available to use for the perfect beach day.
The week we were there, there were a few days when it rained and overcast – however, we didn’t feel like we missed out on anything as Shangri-La has tons of space which allowed everyone to spread out in the wide open areas or spend time hanging out in one of the rooms or cozy loft area to enjoy a book.
The kitchen is well appointed with every appliance that we needed for the stay. Tons of linens and towels are available to really make you feel at home. The furnishings and décor were really well thought out and gave us that out-island, pure vacation getaway feel!
The property was very clean and the owners and caretakers vigilant about Covid protocols as sanitizer and wipes were available – we really felt comfortable and safe on arrival and throughout our stay.
Shawna was an excellent host as she provided tons of information about her favourite spots and places to visit. She was very attentive to our needs and responded quickly to any questions we had to make sure that everything was meeting our needs and expectations. Lachadra was amazing also – she made sure we had her number in case we needed to ask her about anything on-island and was so gracious in providing some welcome refreshments and homemade ice cream.
I would highly recommend this gem of a property to anyone visiting Eleuthera! The property is well located, only a short drive from the airport and a short drive into town. We would not hesitate to stay here again and hope to visit again very soon!

    Thank you for staying at Shangri-La and taking the time to write such a glowing review of our vacation home. We can understand why you carefully contemplated your travel options considering how the world has changed. We are thankful that you felt comfortable and safe while staying with us. As you mentioned, our staff is following the Covid protocols and we have invested in supplies such as hand sanitizer and wipes, so that our guests are well equipped and protected. It's important to us to keep our guests and staff safe. We have also implemented a 24 hour wait period between departing guests and those arriving to Shangri-La. We hope this wait period eases travellers' worries. We are very happy to hear that you enjoyed the coastal décor and spaciousness of the house. We've decorated the house with local artwork, coastal furniture, and linens to reflect its location on a beautiful Bahamian out island. Lachadra truly enjoyed meeting you and your family and preparing the house for your arrival. Providing our guests with a warm welcome, Bahamian drinks, and treats is her specialty. It was a pleasure having you and your family as our guests. We look forward to welcoming you back to Shangri-La in the near future.

A guest from Nassau, New Providence Bahamas recommends this vacation rental.

The house was in a perfect position just behind Banana beach. A minutes walk.. No roads to cross.. We could not have asked for a better house and location. A lovely coastal path along old Banks road also and a short walk to Pascal's Retaurant. The house had a beautiful island feel. Simple yet homely and great for kids. Communication before and during our stay was fantastic.

I enjoyed communicating with you, during your preparations and while you were on Eleuthera. I truly hope that you will return to Shangri-La very soon.

Julie S. from Bedford, MA United States recommends this vacation rental.

Shangri-La is the perfect place to spend a vacation on the island. The property is just steps away to an incredible beach that we felt like we had all to ourselves for miles. The house has tons of space and with two teenagers they could spread out if they wanted. The kitchen is well appointed which was great for in-home meals and cooking. We loved the furnishings and décor and all the special touches. Shawna was an excellent host -- she was attentive and responsive to our needs and questions and appreciated all the information, recommendations and tips she provided before our arrival and during our stay. The caretake, Lachadra, was so helpful as well. The location was ideal; only a short drive from the GHB airport, a short drive into town, and great starting point to explore the island.

Annette K. from St Albert, AB Canada recommends this vacation rental.

Our family has stayed at several homes in different parts of Eleuthera (and the Cove and Sky
Beach) over the years and Shangri-La was hands down our favorite. It is located conveniently close to the Governor's Harbour Airport and Governor's Harbour. We have found that this is central on the island and allows us to explore both north and south. Although it is not located directly on the beach, it was so close it might have well as been. This is nice for those beach days when you want to make a three minute walk back to the house for forgotten sunscreen, a hat or maybe just another cold Kalik. The property was perfect for 5 adults...there was enough space that we were not stepping on each other and we spent many hours on the lovely, spacious deck. The home was well equipped with everything we needed. I would recommend it to anyone in a heartbeat.

  • Manager Responded on 1/5/2022

    Wow, thank you for this amazing review! We are so happy that Shangri-La has become your favourite location on Eleuthera. The short ten-minute drive from the GHB airport is convenient and the central location makes exploring Eleuthera much easier. I'm so happy that you and your family enjoyed the beach and the path from the house. The spaciousness of Shangri-La makes it the perfect place to spread out or enjoy each other's company in the open-concept living area. I hope that many memories were made on the wrap around deck, while enjoying meals and drinks with your family. It was a pleasure corresponding with you prior to your trip and helping to coordinate your vacation. I would love to have you and your family back for another stay. Please reach out when you would like to return, so that we can make your next stay even more memorable.

A guest from Bonners Ferry, Idaho United States recommends this vacation rental.

Our home was awesome. It was clean, had everything we needed and was a home you could relax in and truly enjoy. The Beach, just a hop skip and a jump away was one of the most perfect beaches I have ever seen. In two weeks we saw a total of 6 other people on it. The owner, Shawna, couldn’t have made our trip any more pleasant and Eleuthera rentals takes the worry out of renting, Pam is. awesome. If you like quiet and peace this is the place for you. The locals are so friendly and helpful you can’t help but feel at home. Food is a sticker shock, so if you can, bring some along with you.

Vicky M. from Kent, Ohio United States recommends this vacation rental.

This was my third trip to Eleuthera and this rental was my favorite. Not just in eleuthera, as i travel outside the US alot and always rent from Homeaway. This was the best property i have ever rented. First of all the location was perfect. Easy to explore the whole island. The house has everything you need and everything you didnt know you needed.beachchairs, umbrellas, floats, snorlkle gear, cooler etc. Also they have 5 gallon water jugs which are so convenient to refill at the local gas station. The house was large and had room for more then our party of 4. Could easily accommodate 8. The outside deck was large with a gas grill we used for all our dinners. The beach was the best part. So easy to get to. Just right down the path in front of the house. This review would not be complete without mentioning Chad. She was our caretaker while we were there. She can arrange anything you need. We had her stock our fridge with beer for us before we got there. Also rent a car from Chad and her husband Barry. All i can say is Wow! Bravo. Outstanding. This house is the best! You will see me again.

The wraparound deck was the center of life for the week! Great quiet property near a gorgeous beach.

    We completely agree that our deck is a great spot to gather and enjoy life on Eleuthera. The neighbourhood is quiet and relaxing and the beach is so beautiful. Thank you very much for staying with us. We hope to welcome you back again very soon.
