Property Description

Welcome to Palisades. This spectacular home sits directly on Unicorn Cay Beach, a mile-long stretch of pink sand on the prestigious Banks Road of Governors Harbour, the prime location on Eleuthera. Famous Tippy’s restaurant is a 5 minute walk down the beach. The town of Governors Harbour, with restaurants, grocery stores, shops, and banks, is less than 5 minutes away by car. Unicorn Cay is usually deserted, so don’t be surprised if you have this mile of pink sand entirely to yourself. Palisades’ grand bay windows provide a 50-mile, 180-degree view of the turquoise ocean and pink sands below. These hurricane proof glass windows are engineered to withstand up to 200 mph of direct wind. The glass has a special tint to help keep the house cool. Right outside of these windows, you will find yourself standing on a cascading deck that spans three levels and 60 feet onto the sands of Unicorn Cay Beach. This luxury home features all natural stone throughout, including marble, travertine, granite, and river rocks. With 3200 square feet of interior living area, Palisades offers plenty of space for large groups to spread out, including game rooms with pool and foosball. Enjoy our spectacular new oceanfront infinity pool with stunning ocean views. The pool can be heated at your option for $400/week. Here are rooms.

Joe H. from Frankfort, KY US recommends this vacation rental.


I really don't know where to start. This place is magical, the house, the water, just the whole experience. The house is beautiful, just a short walk to a local restaurant/bar, Tippy's. You walk down the stairs to a beautiful beach, that you will probably have all to yourself. When you get tired of the beach, you head up to the pool with the most spectacular views. I will give you one bit of advice, don't get in a hurry about anything, you are on Island time. This place is so laid back and relaxing, you just have to go with the flow. The boats bring supplies on Tue and Thur, so don't be surprised if they are out of something on Monday. If you're looking for a beautiful house in a relaxing atmosphere, then you can't go wrong with the Palisades.

We took a long needed family vacation to the great island of Eleuthera in June. Stayed at the Palisades House which was amazing. It easily accommodated the entire group of 8.The views from the pool are amazing. Hard to believe the views could be any better anywhere else on the island. Working with the homeowners was easy as Don was very responsive. Overall an amazing experience.

Robin R. from Titonka, IA US recommends this vacation rental.


Wowza, this is a beautiful property along with the best beach to spend some time in a total paradise! This was our 1st visit to Eleuthera and we could not have found a more stunning home. The property exceeded all of our expectations. Upon arrival it was a nice surprise to find champagne, fresh flowers and home grown tomatoes (grown by Sherman the property manager). This home has the most breathtaking views from the 2 master bedrooms and the entire living space. The decks and heated infinity pool were awe-inspiring to spend some relaxing days and evenings at. We were a family of 4 adults and 4 children, and we had more space than we needed to be comfortable for 8 days of fun in the sun. The kitchen is fully stocked with everything you need to cook with. The home was spotless! We had a rental car and found this property to be centrally located for grocery shopping, quaint restaurants and fun little beach bars. The beach has the softest pink sand we have ever seen and walked on with the most incredible clear blue water. We have visited many of the Caribbean islands and this is our new favorite. We are already planning for our next visit in this same property next winter. We have already recommended this vacay and property to all our friends and family. Thank You Don, for sharing your astonishing home with us. Don was amazing to work with in planning our visit to the island. Sherman, the property caretaker, took great care of us, checking in daily to make sure we were comfortable and if we needed anything. On our last day, Sherman brought us homemade cookies and wanted to say goodbye to us and the kids. We had an extraordinary family trip with lots of new priceless memories.

Brenda O. from Cincinnati, Ohio United States recommends this vacation rental.


Just returned from a wonderful 8 day stay at the beautiful Palisades Beach House. This home is truly a gem and is well equipped with everything you possibly need. Sherman, the property manager was Johnny on the spot with any questions and all of our needs. He arrived with flowers, champagne and home baked cookies! He even offered to take one of our couples to the airport when a taxi wasn't available. Eleuthera Vacation Rentals and the homeowners are quick to respond to any questions you may have. I highly recommend this home, the location is central to many of the finest restaurants on the island and you can even walk to Tippy's! We'll be back!

The house is nice. The pool is incredible. The property maintenance is probably above average for the island. The deck need some TLC but it didn't bother us. Property manager was available when we needed him but did not hover, which was nice. Great location! It is on Banks road and a quick walk to Tippy's. Fantastic beach!

This was our 1st visit to this particular rental, but our 10th time in Eleuthera.
Wonderful island with wonderful people. They are the reason we continue to return. Property manager Sherman was a delight to deal with, answering our questions and reacting to our very minor issues with a smile. Great rental overall, some wear/tear like all oceanfront properties, there is deckwork in it's future. Other than that, no complaints.

Beth G. from Barrington, RI US recommends this vacation rental.


The house was as described. The outdoor patio area is stunning and very nice. Some of the outdoor furniture is well used. The shade umbrellas are all broken and we could not use them - maybe the owners might consider replacing them soon. The decking itself is real wood, and as such the elements are taking their toll. Somewhat rickety in parts - I recommend wearing some type of footwear out there, and do NOT lean on the railings. The home is fairly well stocked, but we needed more bath towels. A couple people ended up using beach towels for that, so we made it work. There were plenty of beach towels, pool toys, and other beach supplies provided. We brought some pool floats ourselves, and left 2 of them there for the next guests to use - enjoy! The house was very clean. We experienced a few bugs/spiders in the house, but this is to be expected. We even had a shower crab!(yes, a crab somehow ended up in one of the showers - it was funny). There were 7 of us - 5 adults and 2 teens - and we all had plenty of space to spread out - the house is a perfect size for a group! Plenty of food options nearby, and of course the famous Tippy’s is like a 5 minute walk down the beach. Mr. Culmer, the caretaker, was very pleasant and easy to deal with and to reach when we had questions. He did appear a couple times on the back deck while we were there - a bit disconcerting because we weren’t expecting him, but overall no big deal. The housekeepers were there when we arrived for check in around 3pm, and they weren’t finished cleaning yet. I was spoken to rather sharply by one of the cleaning crew for coming into the (fully open) house to inquire as to when we could check in. I was told “we aren’t done yet! What are you doing here?” I asked whether we could store our luggage in the garage while we went elsewhere to wait until they were done, and Mr. Culmer graciously allowed it. We just went to Tippy’s for lunch and came back later. Over

Drew H. from Mohnton, PA United States recommends this vacation rental.


We really enjoyed our stay at the Palisades house. The view from the house was breathtaking and the pink sand beach was unbeatable. The water was the most amazing color. We loved kayaking, snorkeling and jumping waves. The pool is beautiful. The deck will need replaced at some point but I can understand why they haven’t done it yet. There is so much deck space! We had a few issues while we were there but Sherman took care of them right away. He even brought us cookies that his wife made. We were a little disappointed that the dishwasher was broken but hopefully they will have that fixed soon. We loved walking the beach in the morning and going to Tippys for dinner. This place has some wear and tear but we still loved it. The kids loved playing pool and foosball. Overall we had the best vacation and the view and location trumped everything else!

A guest from Port Coquitlam, BC CA recommends this vacation rental.


Palisades House fit 8 of us comfortably. The good stuff! There were more amenities and a accessories then were mentioned in the listing. Extra beach bags, snorkel gear, boogie boards, sand toys. Located right on the beach. The water is so clear and warm, even for December. The pool is beautiful but a bit cold so we mostly sat around it or dipped our feet in. The house is on the Atlantic side so some waves are nice to play in. Good snorkelling. Restaurants are great. Tippy's was enjoyed by all. Very safe island all round. All items were delivered and issues were attended to right away.
The only bump we had was the dryer did not work so no clean clothes for a week with many teenagers was a bit tough, hang drying doesn't work so well with salty air and the humidity level but hopefully that get fixed soon.
Overall I would highly recommend staying here, it's an excellent place to relax with a picture perfect view for a week (or longer).
