Overview & Photos

Gallery

Nestled amongst the greenery above the turquoise waters of the Caribbean sits the beautiful cottage aptly named Beside The Pointe. The quietness is deafening, the ocean view in front of you is pure ecstasy, and the sunset embraces you as it disappears into the water.

Between Palmetto Point and Savannah Sound, a mile off the main highway thru a greenery-lined track road sits your tranquil paradise, a perfect hideaway for honeymooners.

A private beach and the Caribbean sea are right below you down a flight of steps.

The owners live next door if you need them, but you won't see them if you don't want to.

Food stores and restaurants are a few miles away, close, yet far enough away from your quietness. There is excellent new oceanfront restaurant in Savannah Sound, about eight minutes away by car, called Fishbone Beach Bar and Grill, which is open year-round.

Ten Bay Beach, a beautiful mile-long pristine beach, is just a mile away.

Governors Harbour, the main town on the island, is just 15 minutes by car from the property. Governors Harbour 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.

Relax in central air comfort with DirectTV and WIFI. Enjoy the quietness and spectacular views.

We have 4 sets of snorkel gear in a variety of sizes, an assortment of hand fishing lines with gear, 2 single kayaks, beach chairs, beach umbrella, a cooler, outdoor shower and a gas grill. There's also a stackable washer and dryer. We just installed a brand new generator to keep the house running and our guests comfortable during power outages. There is a back-up water supply as well.

For stays longer than 10 nights you get 1 free weekly cleaning.

Absolute perfection!! My husband and I could not have been more happy and relaxed as we were at Keith and Sharon's Beside the Pointe cottage. We were blessed with exquisite views and snorkeling on our private beach. This cottage has more than we could've asked for. All of our questions were answered quickly and the property owners went way out of their way to ensure our comfort, offer suggestions, provide us with daily goodies and became special friends. We cannot wait to return to our piece of paradise. We truly cannot say enough wonderful things. We did almost all of our cooking in, utilized laundry machines, and was so very comfortable

Alistair C. from Palm Coast, FL US recommends this vacation rental.

Arriving in the pouring rain to a primitive airport was not a great beginning for our long anticipated vacation.
When we arrived at our location of Beside the Pointe that all turned around. Rarely do we find a place that lives up to the promotional pictures but this exceeded them by quite a bit!
We enjoyed this place so much that we spent most of our time here even though we traveled and saw various sights and beaches on the Island. Ten Bay beach was our second favorite spot, minutes away. Found a pair of Manatees ghosting along - which initially scared the **** out of me before I realized what they were!
As far as restaurants go Buccaneer's was the one we tried and found pretty good. Try their Conch fritters, yum! Cost Cutters 5 minutes South was best for groceries.
Keith and Sharon were terrific hosts. Helpful, gracious and super friendly with wonderful tips and extreme knowledge of the island and people. Their property is almost self sustaining as they have so much produce growing on their land.
The beach is far more than shown in photos - there is no one in sight for all of Savannah Sound! Snorkeling is great and kayaks on site to use. Made for taking pics and even used a Drone for amazing footage.
This was a wonderful vacation and we plan to return to this Cottage in the future!

A guest from Oakville, ON Unknown not recommends this vacation rental.

It was a perfect cottage our only issue is that the listing didn’t really express that the owners are right next door. So not quite as private as we like. In saying that, they were a wonderful couple and certainly respected our privacy. We hope we have made friends for life with them. So the only reason we won’t rent again is our desire for seclusion and prefer beach on Atlantic coast.

Jonathan L. from Peoria, IL US recommends this vacation rental.

This property is incredible. When we were researching a place to stay on Eleuthera, we came across Beside the Pointe. The good reviews and pictures sold us and we booked our stay. However, we were not prepared for the view as we drove our vehicle to top of the drive beside the cottage. It is INCREDIBLE! Pictures do not capture the beauty at Beside the Pointe. Keith & Sharon have done an incredible job with their property. Every day held a different sky, different waters & a different sunset. There is so much beauty to behold in their cove. We really enjoyed the kayaks and our favorite time of the day on the water was early morning. It was crystal clear and still. Felt as if we were paddling on glass. The location of the cottage was a perfect jumping off point to explore both ends of the island. It also had everything we needed to enjoy a 3 wk stay and was spotless when we arrived. Keith & Sharon were so kind and knowledgeable about the island and always willing to help with anything we might need. Top notch folks. I would stay here time & time again.

Thomas B. from Bedford, VA US recommends this vacation rental.

Beside the Pointe is a beautiful rental. When you top the hill the first time and see that view, it literally takes your breath away. The pictures do not do justice for this home. There are about 30 steps down to the water, some a little steeper than others. We are in our mid 50s and had no problem with them. Kemps Creek is very close, and is a beautiful snorkeling destination. Do not miss out on it. Keith and Sharon were so nice, taking us on a tour of their gardens and giving us watermelon that they had grown. They were so delightful. We cannot say enough good things about this rental, if we go back to Eleuthera, we would definitely rent this property again. Thank you Keith and Sharon for everything, you helped make our vacation wonderful.

We went to get away from it all, people, noise, cars, leaf blowers! It was so wonderfully peaceful, beautiful and just plain relaxing. Everything is just as pictured! We enjoyed using the kayaks and fishing out of them. We loved having our own personal beach and cove. The gardens are beautiful and I don’t know how I will live without my daily, fresh picked mangoes! Keith and Sharon are lovely hosts and wonderful people!

Eleuthera is an amazing place and we will be back. Our cottage had everything we needed and our hosts were great! Friendly and available when we needed anything and shared stories with us to help us find beautiful places on the island to visit. We did not see another property as meticulously landscaped and the private beach was very special. Many thanks to the Culmers!

Beside the Pointe is exactly as described. It's a lovely, clean cottage with a gorgeous view and private beach, surrounded by beautiful landscaping and gardens. The hosts are extremely hospitable and go over and beyond to assist in any way. The cottage has a cell phone, a generator, washer/dryer, beach chairs, a cooler, island maps, etc. It's appointed with everything you need for a fabulous vacation in Eleuthera.

Beside the Pointe is a lovely little hideaway in a spectacular setting. The property is lovely. The owner has spent many years planting gardens, which are perfectly beautiful. The cottage has everything one could need and the owners were extremely helpful and generous with suggestions about where to go on this wonderful island.

A guest from United States recommends this vacation rental.

Keith was an amazing host! So helpful and went above and beyond for us. He and his wife live right next door. The two homes are the only ones on this particular beach. The cottage is adorable! The bed was so comfortable! All the amenities that you could need were provided. It is clean and comfortable. Internet and Tv worked great. They truck their water in so you do have to be conscious of your water usage, and the hot water only lasts long enough for one shower. The front porch is really nice to watch the sun set or have your morning coffee. There are lots of snorkeling gear and a few life jackets. They even had a few squirt guns and nets for our kids to play with. The beach is down some very steep steps. My 4 year old needed help with them as they aren't really level. But the private beach was gorgeous. We used the kayaks and kayaked through the bay. The beach is a mix of coral and sand, so you will need water shoes. We visited 10 Bay Beach loved it. Keith takes very good care of his property and it shows. We didn't have any troubles with bugs except if we went down to the water after dark. Up by the cottage they were fine generally. We loved our stay here and would stay again!

The Culmer's were excellent hosts proving us with information where to dine, a local cell phone for convenience and proving some gas for our vehicle when we were on empty after returning from dinner when gas pumps were closed. The beach is lovely and private. We enjoyed the use of the kayaks to explore and get to the great snorkelling spots nearby.

Brandie V. from Tampa, FL US recommends this vacation rental.

My husband and I had an excellent stay at Beside the Pointe in late August. The location is perfect for exploring either north or south on Eleuthera. The road back to the cottage from Queen’s Highway is in very good condition, making it easy to enter and exit the property. You’re about 20 minutes from Governor’s Harbor and about 10 minutes to a nearby grocery store in Savannah Sound. Gas station is nearby too. We loved the cottage! It had everything we needed. Although it is only one main room, it was spacious and functional. The bed was comfortable with good reading lights. The bed had 2 drawers built in underneath it on each side for storage. There was also a small closet with hangars. The towels were plentiful and soft. Tissues, T.P., paper towels, dish soap, sponge, coffee and filters, powdered creamer, sugar, and 2 gallons of water were supplied. They also provided a hairdryer. Even though we ate most our meals out, the kitchen was well equipped if you preferred to cook. There was a washer and dryer but we did not use them. Everything from the Wi-Fi, T.V., A/C, kitchen appliances, and shower worked great! We had no issues. The screened in porch had lovely views of the water and cliffs. What was especially beneficial is that the owner has a generator for the cottage, so you are never without power. There were a few times it went out briefly and it was nice to know there was no interruption for us. The cottage is extremely well maintained, clean, lovely, and welcoming. At their beach there is no one else there. The snorkeling was good out front. They had 2 nice lounge chairs at the beach and 2 kayaks you could take out to explore the cove. Communication was great between the owner via email. Answered many questions in a timely manner. The owners are a delightful couple. We enjoyed talking with them. I would highly recommend Beside the Pointe and hope that we can return for another visit.

The house is centrally located on the island so site seeing the whole island was easy with a rental car. Would highly recommend and already have to various friends.

The Culmers are wonderful hosts & fantastic people. They made our stay so relaxing & were so helpful, even lending my husband clothes & toiletries when our bags didn’t arrive with us. The cottage is immaculately clean & has a great little kitchen with all you need to enjoy cooking. The bed was extremely comfortable too. WiFi was great, direct TV always worked & electricty always on because there’s a generator. The kayaks were so much fun to use in the beautiful bay area. Eating out on the screened porch & spending every evening & morning out there enjoying the view was a huge plus. The property is beautifully cared for. We look forward to returning again as soon as we can. It was more than a vacation because we also made good friends with Keith & Kathy. They will gave us best advice about restaurants & tours. Thanks again for a wonderful vacation!

Linda K. from Norwich, VT United States recommends this vacation rental.

This was a great couples place with plenty of privacy in a beautiful spot. The cottage is spotless and well-designed with everything you need. Comfortable king bed, good kitchen, and nice screened porch. Buy food on island or bring a stocked cooler. Some spots on beaches have limestone and you will want to wear sandals or water shoes. Keith and Sharon are native Bahamians with tremendous knowledge about the island.
Everything in the description is accurate. To reach the beach at the cottage there is a full set of steps BUT if you cannot do steps, there are countless other beaches all over the island.
The cottage has my full recommendation and I hope everyone enjoys it as much as we did.
