The Lazy Turtle is a newly built 2.5 bedroom, 1.5 bathroom villa with spectacular water views from every aspect. Located on the secluded peninsular of Whale Point, North Eleuthera, Lazy Turtle House is nestled between a pretty lagoon and a turquoise harbor where you will find some of the calmest and clearest water on the planet - sea turtles and reef fish just waiting to say hello.

The space
Lazy Turtle House features 2000 sq feet of spacious decks, both covered and uncovered, for sunbathing, ocean views, sunset cocktails, outdoor dining - everything you need to relax and recharge.

- Elegantly furnished throughout, the house is topped with a unique roof deck accessed from a 10' x 10' reading/sleeping loft. The loft has a full twin sized daybed and can be used for sleeping, but please note that this room has no direct access to the main bathroom, or air conditioning, but the windows can be left open and there is a large ceiling fan.

- Enjoy panoramic views and breezes with shaded seating, a sit-up bar perfect for sunset cocktails and a luxurious hammock for sunbathing and stargazing.

- The open plan ground floor has a dining table for 8, comfortable lounge chairs and a modern kitchen with breakfast bar.

- Upstairs, the master bedroom has a view to die for. The queen-size bed has a sumptuous 13" mattress for the best night's sleep! 

- The large modern bathroom with a spacious walk-in travertine shower is shared with the second bedroom.

- The second bedroom has 2 twin beds that can be easily converted to a queen bed.

- The substantial upper floor deck has a harbor-view table and seating that is perfect for a lazy breakfast or lunch with a view.

- Private high speed internet throughout the house.

- Just 40 steps from the beach and shallow, turquoise harbor.


- Due to the high decks and spiral stairs, no children under 10 years old please.

- The house is supplied with two masks, snorkels and sets of fins, but if you're serious about snorkeling/free diving it's worth bringing your own equipment that fits perfectly.

- Eleuthera is the real deal! If you are looking for a sanitized Atlantis-type Bahamian experience this is not the island for you. Even quaint little Harbour Island will be busy/noisy in comparison to Eleuthera. If you love nature and wildlife, clear water, beaches without footprints, a little live music, genuine and friendly locals... you will find a piece of paradise here!

- A number of grocery stores now also take credit cards and have a lot of what you'll need - unless you have specific dietary requirements. Prices are higher than in the States though. Please ask what's worth bringing with you and what isn't.

Where you’ll be

Whale Point, North Eleuthera, Bahamas

Great snorkeling, kayaking and bonefishing will be right on your doorstep - the sandy beach is 40 steps from the house. Romantic Harbour Island for fine dining and shoulder-rubbing with celebrities can be reached within 30 minutes, and is also a great starting point for your scuba diving and deep sea fishing excursions. Multiple deserted beaches and famous local attractions such as the Sapphire Blue Hole, Queens Baths, Preacher's Cave, Surfer's Beach, Hatchet Bay Caves, and Glass Window Bridge are all within a 20 minute drive of Whale Point, as is Gregory Town, home of the annual world-famous Pineapple Fest. Also close by are some great bars and restaurants such as Daddy Joes, The Surf Shack and many more. If you can't live without your sports, ask Tiffany to find your favouite team on TV at the Daddy Joes bar.

2 inflatable kayaks, and 2 sets of snorkel gear are included with the rental. Paddle boards are available to hire. The owner will gladly help you with arranging excursions such as day sailing charters, swimming with pigs, surf lessons, eco tours, as well as all manner of local knowledge.
