Palafito is a one room airy loft with private access to one of the world's premiere beaches. Amenities include WIFI, ocean view, fully equipped kitchen, wrap around deck, A/C outdoor grill, indoor and outdoor showers . The freestanding unit is located on a secluded three acre property 200' from the beach.

The loft is ideal for solo travelers or couples who seek unmatched privacy, tropical views and literally miles of soft sand beaches merely steps from your bed. It is truly a place where "you can get away." It is located on a ,lightly trafficked road with sparse houses. There is a tropical garden on the property featuring local fruit bearing trees such as soursops, sugar apples, sapadillos, mangos and bananas.

The loft is 10 miles from Governor's Harbor Airport and within walking distance of a relaxed cafe, restaurant and bar. Small grocery stores and other dining and bar options are within 2.5 miles.

The island itself is a unique place to explore with many opportunites for eco/adventure style tourism. Limestone caves, hidden beaches and sleepy villages are some of Eleuthera's easily accessed attractions. You can snorkel and fish just off the beach or many other places along the 110 mile coast. Surfing, scuba, sailing, fishing and deep sea fishing tours are available.

For longer excursions it is best to rent a car for though some guests have hitchhiked. Car rentals are approximately $65-$75/day

Nightlife options are laid back and tend to involve a mix of expats, locals and a band or DJ. You might catch one of the rockstars who has settled on the island at an open mic or even find yourself jamming alongside if you are so inclined. Gregory Town, a village 25 minutes to the north by car is an active nightspot.

Your hosts, Tommy and Gail, are an easygoing married couple who have resided in the Bahamas for many years and are happy to share their knowledge of the island.

Tennis court access for a $25/day fee. maximum 2 hours per day. Non-marking shoes are mandatory.,


In lieu of renting a car, taxis are available

The map shown on the airbnb site is misleading. The loft is in fact 200' from the Atlantic Ocean.k'
