It is a ROMANTIC, SECLUDED AND STYLISH ONE-BEDROOM OCEANFRONT BEACHHOUSE, located on Casuarina Beach and just 100' from French Leave Beach (formally also known as Club Med Beach for the Club Med resort that was located there in the 90s). It is on the point between 2 beaches. No other properties are between it and world-famous French Leave Beach. It is a short stroll to Twin Coves Beach and its superb snorkeling reef. Med Point Beach House is like a lighthouse guarding the north end of French Leave Beach, which is the loveliest and safest beach in Eleuthera. In addition, we are only a 1 mile stroll to the center of town.
The 1 story house was NEWLY RENOVATED in 2009 by a Governors Harbour's premier designer, with wood floors, Brazilian cherry doors, and white wooden accents. The king wooden platform bed and sofas/daybeds were specially created for Med Point, which has a pale blue and white theme. Comforts include 400 thread-count sheets and Thomas by Rosenthal china. Step outside the glass doors, and you will see ocean spreading away as far as you can see.
Med Point beach house has a huge 1100 square foot teak wrap-around deck facing the beach and ocean, and all modern conveniences, with a full kitchen, great room, wifi and large sliding glass doors on both sides facing the ocean to maximize your viewing pleasure. It has a KING BED master suite, plus 2 large day beds/sofas in the living room for 2 more guests. The dining area faces the ocean.
There are miles of deserted beaches on both sides of Med Point, with the famous pink sand French Leave Beach next door. The ocean is right up against our deck, and you can sometimes see grouper fish playing in the surf. Because we are on a point, you can walk the 1 mile to the town of Governor's Harbour, along a sandy road through French Leave Beach.
The drive to Med Point, takes you for about half a mile, on a sandy lane through French Leave Beach, looking out to sea and giant cacti and palms. You will enjoy this splendid view of nature every day, as you go into town.
The famous bar/restaurant Tippy's is close, and there are upscale restaurants such as Sky Beach Club and 1648 Bar and Grill, as well as charming takeouts in Governor's Harbour. we are a walk away from Baccus Fine Foods.
Med Point is also close to Tear Coat Cay, a small island offshore, where you can snorkel; also close to lots of reefs for other snorkeling. The water is gin clear, 100 feet of visibility, and we have seen parrot fish, groupers, rays and other exotic fish. The water is 75 to 88 degrees Fahrenheit.
French Leave (Club Med) Beach stretches southward for 1 mile: we are at the northern edge where it is quiet, with fewer tourists. Casuarina Beach, stretches north of us for another mile, and then Twin Cove beach stretches north for another mile or so. All of this can be walked along wide sandy pink beaches with excellent shelling. Or you can jog along the sandy path that is Old Banks Road and have wide vistas of white surf.
The various gardens have coconut and royal palms, hibiscus and oleander and sea lettuce. Walk off one stairway on the deck and you will stand on a gorgeous coral garden and see the nearby blowhole that spouts 30 feet in the air. Walk off the other steps past hibiscus and palms and geckos onto Casuarina Bay Beach. Turtles nest at night on our beach.
The house is decorated modernly, in blue and white. Two walls of the house are glass, so that you are bathing in views of blue ocean and surf. There are two huge daybeds/couches for lounging, and a rocking chair to plan for retirement. The kitchen is new, and comfortably supplied, for cooking as you stare at the ocean. Then dine at a beautiful wooden table, staring at the ocean nearby, virtually at your feet. At night, go out on the deck and get a fabulously clear view of the stars.
Most people who walk by Med Point, express regret that they are staying elsewhere!
