We just returned from a week at the Romantic Bungalow in Palmetto Point. The house was wonderful-very clean, well equipped and very comfortable. The location would be hard to beat- right on the beach with a great deck where we spent lots of time! We opened all the sliders and windows (good screens) and enjoyed the sound of the rustling palm trees and surf all week. The weather was pretty windy most of the week due to a strong front that moved across the Bahamas after going across the US and making temps in the southern US plummet unseasonably. We had a great time adventuring every day and the house was in a good central location for that. The road to the house is quite rough but so were many other roads we encountered on the trip- the little jeep we rented did just fine. We drove down to Lighthouse Beach one day (a must do) and up to North Eleuthera another day where we took a water taxi to HI and rented a cart to explore and have lunch. The Glass Window Bridge is one of the most amazing sites I have ever seen anywhere in the world and that alone was worth the drive north. We ate out at Captain Jack's, Sunset Inn, Buccaneer Club, Unique Village (breakfast), Sammy's in Rock Sound, Water's Edge in Hatchet Bay, Valentine's in HI, and a carry out pizza from Mate and Jenny's but by far the best was the fish fry in Governor's Harbour- lots of fun- good food, music, and dancing in the streets. All in all, I think we enjoyed the nights we cooked in the best because you couldn't beat the view and it was so peaceful and relaxing not to have to go anywhere! Island Farms was nearby and we made several trips for fresh produce, freshly baked bread and wonderful guava jelly and mango salsa. They also have homemade pesto, roasted peppers and salad dressings in a refrigerator- be sure to look. We found groceries and gas convenient to the house with no problem at all. All of the people we encountered were so very friendly and helpful. We explored the old navy base beach, Lightbouse Beach, Double Bay, Winding Bay, Ten Bay, Rainbow Bay, Savannah Sound, Gaulding Bay beach, Cocodimama beach and our very favorite, old Club Med beach- spectacular.
I recommend Romantic Bungalow whole heartedly- it was truly peaceful, beautiful, quiet and romantic. We hardly saw a soul on the beach out front all week and merely waved at neighbors down the road when we drove by or walked by. Great location and great rental!
