Overview & Photos

Gallery

Windsong is an elegant 5-acre estate with 400 feet of private pink-sand beachfront on beautiful Double Bay. Windsong enjoys beach and ocean views from every major room. This luxurious property is appointed with custom furnishings, antiques, and critically acclaimed artwork.

Enter Windsong through the Bahama Room, a spacious glass-enclosed sun porch overlooking the gardens and furnished with a sofa, chairs, and a breakfast table. Walk through the Bahama Room into the large living room with its 15 foot ceilings and wall of glass overlooking the grand patio, beach, and ocean. Large sliding doors open to admit the ocean breeze. The grand patio includes a large covered porch with a wicker lounge set and a separate breakfast table. Beyond is a bow-fronted open patio with loungers for sunbathing and enjoying the ocean view. Sand paths lead to the beach from each side of the patio.

Back inside, to the right of the living room is the master bedroom suite with queen bed and French doors opening onto an ocean-view terrace. French doors on both walls open to admit a pleasant cross-breeze. The vast en-suite bathroom features a double-headed walk-in shower, separate tub, and dual sinks with an ocean view. A side door opens to a private outdoor shower.

To the left of the living room is the formal dining room with wall of glass overlooking the beach and ocean. The dining room has seating for 12. Large sliding glass doors can be opened to admit the breeze. Adjacent to the dining room is the modern kitchen done in retro style with gas range, refrigerator, dishwasher, and microwave. This wing of the estate also houses a TV room/office which serves as the second bedroom of the Main House. It’s furnished with a flat-screen satellite TV, desk, day bed, and chairs.

Beside the main house are two charming guest cottages. The first, with a commanding ocean view and a high tray ceiling, has large sliders out to a porch overlooking the ocean. It’s furnished with a king bed. The en-suite bathroom is equipped with a large walk-in shower with dual heads. The second guest cottage is furnished with a king bed plus a day bed and a trundle bed. It’s equipped with a kitchenette (refrigerator, sink, toaster oven, coffee maker) and a full bath. Each guest cottage has a private outdoor shower. IF YOU DON'T USE THE GUESTS HOUSES, WE WILL NOT RENT THEM TO ANYONE ELSE. YOU WILL ALWAYS HAVE THE ESTATE TO YOURSELF.

The beach in front of the house is spectacular: wide, pristine, pink sand, two miles long and usually deserted. The large beachfront palapa, furnished with chairs and loungers, is a perfect spot to gather for a beverage. Or relax in the one of the two hammocks strung in the palm groves. There are coral reefs and a large cay offshore for snorkeling and exploring. The estate comes with two sea kayaks.

Windsong House is fully air conditioned. Indoor amenities include super-fast Starlink internet, satellite TV, DVD player, yoga mats, hand weights, and board games. There is a gas grill and an outdoor dining area for cookouts. Windsong is equipped with everything you need to enjoy its beautiful beach, including beach chairs, boogie boards, and kayaks.

Windsong House is just 5 minutes from Palmetto Point which has a general store, a restaurant, and other businesses. 10 minutes beyond is the island’s capital, Governors Harbour. Governors Harbour has a charming collection of 19th century homes and churches overlooking its historic harbor. Buy fresh fish and lobster every afternoon from fisherman at the town dock, or visit the recently restored Haynes Library, which dates from 1897, for the weekly coffee hour for foreign residents and tourists. Governors Harbour has grocery stores, restaurants, liquor stores, two banks with ATMs, a bakery, gift shops, a dive shop, and a medical clinic. Friday Night Fish Fry in Governors Harbour, a street/beach party that brings together all the tourists and locals with food, drink, and dancing in the street, is not to be missed.

A guest from Wildwood, MO United States recommends this vacation rental.

Windsong is a beautiful Bahamian home with a great location mid-island on a stunning, mostly private, expansive pink sand beach. The ocean was very swimmable with gentle waves, soft sand and beautiful blue water, we even saw a turtle swim by one afternoon!! The property was very clean, well equipped and a great setup for our group of 6, which included 4 adults and 2 teens. The landscaping was gorgeous and we loved all the hammocks and shaded seating around the property. Patsy quickly responded to any questions we had and we greatly appreciated knowing she was a quick call away!! We had an amazing week in Eleuthera and a perfect stay at Windsong and hope to return again soon!!!

Walter B. from Wilmngton, NC United States recommends this vacation rental.

Windsong is an amazing private property on Double Bay Beach. The ocean water colors are spectacular. The character of the house makes you feel like you're back in the years long past. The palm trees, the tiki hut, and mocking birds make this property the ideal experience if you want to get away and relax Eleuthera style.

Gigi N. from United States recommends this vacation rental.

Loved being able to walk down to the beach. House was properly equipped with everything you would need but shampoo, conditioner and body soap.

We noticed dead termites scattered throughout the house, primarily in the master bedroom and it looked like the air ducts had not been vacuumed or cleaned in years. The house it a bit dated and could used some decluttering. Would suggest mid week a housekeeper comes through just to do a quick sweep of the house, mopping ...Management company wonderful, friendly and responsive.

A guest from Boyertown, PA United States recommends this vacation rental.

The house, cottages and grounds were absolutely beautiful and my family and friends had a wonderful stay! The caretaker was non-existent though. We didn’t need a lot of help navigating around but would recommend more local information to be in the house with keypad checkin and detailed check out instructions at the house. The house was more beautiful then the pictures, and was very lucky to have spent an amazing week in this location!

CHRISTINE M. from Bradenton, FL US recommends this vacation rental.

Our stay in November 2022 was wonderful. The weather was perfect and the property was too. Windsong contains 3 separate bungalows with sleeping and bathrooms accommodations in each. All the housings were clean, comfortable and caretaker was available to answer any questions. One night the electricity went out as we were fixing dinner, the stove was gas which helped. Dinner was served by candlelight. Windsong makes its own water so there is a motor running alot in the third bungalow which can be heard in bathroom area. All in all a delightful place to relax an enjoy Eleuthera's spectacular pink beaches. All six of us who stayed at Windsong would recommend and consider returning on our next visit.

Joseph K. from Salina, Kansas United States recommends this vacation rental.

The property was amazing. Our two boys Jett and River explored every inch of windsong. In addition to the main house, the two guest villas were fantastic. This place has a huge expanse of beach steps away from the back patio. We loved everything about it and would def stay there again. file:///var/mobile/Library/SMS/Attachments/1e/14/CDC15735-7D4A-4E70-B6C8-19C44ABCF6F7/IMG_9861.PNG

Our time at Windsong was both relaxing and reinvigorating. Windsong's location on Double Bay beach offered a beautiful setting right in our back yard, as well as a great location for day trips to both north and south Eleuthera.

Windsong is a beautiful property with touches of historical and modern. The beach at Windsong is amongst the most beautiful in the world. The island is very rural and nature abounds both above and below the water. The three houses on the estate offer lots of privacy.

Mishka F. from United States recommends this vacation rental.

We have rented many homes on Eleuthera in the last 20 years. After this trip our oldest son called and said this was the best family vacation we have had! The house is just grand. It had everything we needed. We like to bring our own meat and cook often at the house. The kitchen was stocked with absolutely everything we needed. The outdoor grill is in great shape. The house was immaculately cleaned. The caretaker, Patsy, is among the best! She is sweet and reached out to us each day to make sure all was well. Patsy is top notch and a lovely person! The amazing history in the main house is just beautiful. We love the traditional Cuban style tile. The beds are comfortable! The dining room was perfect for the entire crew to enjoy great dinners together. Both of our sons brought friends with them and the cottages were perfect! The main family room offered many nights of family fun. We brought some games, but there are so many at the house we did not need ours. The lounge chairs on the patio and beach are in beautiful shape. It is so rare to find a house that keeps enough chairs for all of the guests. The grounds at the house are so well maintained and the flowers, shrubs and coconuts add so much charm. We had an amazing breeze during our stay. I guess, hence the name, Windsong! Thank you Beth and Patsy and EVR. We'll be back!

Jonathan G. from Corral De Tierra, CA United States recommends this vacation rental.

Windsong Double Bay is very private and secluded. Featuring 3 different cottages, it is a spread out, 2-3 acre parcel with direct beachfront access and views from each house. The houses are set back from the ocean about 150 feet, so if you want to be right up on the water, this isn't the property for you.

The main house is in very good condition. The kitchen is a tad small but has what you need to cook, the dining room is spacious, and the living room is very well lit. The main bedroom is plenty big and the bathroom has a double sink and separate tub/shower. The beach cottage has a great view of the water and is nice and updated with a great shower, and the garden cottage has a further view of the water but comes with a small kitchenette (microwave, sink, fridge) and a bathroom with a tub/shower combo. All of the outdoor showers for each cottage are well kept and very useful. The grounds themselves are well maintained (otherwise the vegetation would take over quickly) and the beach hut and hammocks are nice amenities, though the beach hut is still a bit removed from the beach. One nice thing would be permanent or sturdy umbrellas for the beach itself.

Double bay is a fantastic beach with softer pink sand that on Harbour Island. The breeze from the Atlantic keeps the bugs away most of the time and the waves provide fun swimming action. For those needing a more calmer water experience, Ten Bay beach is 10 minutes away and is one of the best Caribbean side beaches in Eleuthera.

The caretaker, Patsy, is very nice and mostly responsive. I'd suggest calling her over any other forms of communication. She'll generally get back to you within a day. We did take advantage of her meal service and both times they were excellent. Expect to pay around $200 for this.

The only cons were that the mobile hotspots they use for wifi didn't all work (I don't think the SIM cards were active in some) and there is no satellite TV, only an Amazon fire sti

My husband and I along with 2 other couples spent 10 days in this lovely accommodation. My husband and I stayed in the Beach Cottage and listened to the waves at night as we slept. We enjoyed the convenience of the kitchen where we cooked most of our dinners. We visited the Queens Baths, Sapphire Blue Hole, Eleuthera Pineapple Farm, Lighthouse Beach among other attractions. We also enjoyed chilling on the beach, snorkeling, and kayaking. Maybe we'll be back one day!
