A destination for visitors from all over the world for 15 years, Point o’Vue welcomes you to visit for an extraordinary getaway. Point o’Vue is nestled among casuarina trees and palms opening onto 2 miles of beach and the shallow blue-green waters of Winding Bay, offering 3,100 square feet of luxury and privacy, allowing you to spread out among the 3 bedrooms and 4 full bathrooms. The house includes a beautiful and spacious ground-floor master suite with King Bed, full bath and large closet, 2 upstairs bedrooms (one king bed, one with twin beds) each with their own bathroom and separate entrance onto the 2nd floor sun deck. Comfortable bunk beds (ideally suited for children) have been recently added in our private office space off of the Great Room. Designed by a famous Bahamian architect, the charming house has air conditioning throughout and ample storage space. Point o’Vue has unique exterior architectural features; ten foot verandahs surround the house and are perfectly suited for reading, relaxing and dining. The back patio area is a wonderful place for bird watching and listening to our fountain surrounded by lush, tropical plants, and is great for sunning on windy days. On the 2nd floor, Point o’Vue has a 60 foot sundeck that extends the length of the house and affords beautiful, expansive views of the entire bay during the day, and an extraordinary panorama of stars at night. There are lounge chairs and a table with umbrella on the sun deck for you to enjoy. Point o’Vue has a large, spacious Great Room with sliding doors on either side to allow for cool breezes and crosswinds to come through while you lounge on comfortable couches, watch satellite TV or enjoy many of the games, DVDs, and free wi-fi that Point o’ Vue offers. Its cathedral ceilings and white-washed walls offer a grand, open space for relaxing. The kitchen, open to the Great Room, is bright and open with sunny yellow cabinetry, a stainless steel stove and new refrigerator. While you prepare fresh caught fish, lobster or conch, others can sit at one of the high-top barstools and enjoy a cool beverage. Tessa Hunt, our amazing housekeeper and cook, and Columbus Carey, our long time house manager are there to serve you, assisting with car rental, meeting you at the airport, arranging picnics and helping with local knowledge. They are there to make sure you enjoy every moment of your island getaway. Point o’Vue offers 2 paddleboards and 2 kayaks for your enjoyment during your stay, as well as 2 new bikes with baskets for those who would like to bike into Tarpum Bay (just a few miles away). A beach cabana sits at the end of a winding path to the beach, with a table and benches for beach picnics or lounging while taking in the views. Winding Bay itself is perfect for easy snorkeling and fishing. Tarpum Bay settlement and the nearby settlement of Rock Sound offers markets for food shopping, gas stations and other basic necessities. For all of our guests at Point o’Vue, we provide a full write-up of recommended restaurants to visit, beaches to explore, and things to do while on Eleuthera Island. The owners have extensive knowledge on all aspects of Eleuthera living including finding flights to and from the island for the best price. Point o’Vue is family friendly and the owners’ children and grandchildren have grown up on the shores playing in the sand, body surfing, snorkeling and shelling. Eleuthera is a paradise and playground for all ages. So let us welcome you, take you away and introduce you to a whole new Point o’Vue of what island living is all about. More

About the neighborhood
Point O' Vue is located on Winding Bay, Eleuthera, a 5 minute drive away from the settlement Tarpum Bay. Gorgeous Winding Bay is 2 miles around with all pink sand beaches with stunning views of the Atlantic. There are 9 other homes each with a minimum of 2 acres of land insuring privacy. Marty (Owner) has travelled to Eleuthera for over 40 years and knows how to best to plan flight itineraries. As you consider Eleuthera and Point O' Vue, please contact him for more details on flight planning. More information on www.pointovue.com.
How to get there
The first step is to contact owner Marty Erbaugh. He stays up on current routes including those that are most convenient and cost effective and that come right in to Rock Sound (RSD) airport from Nassau (NAS) and which is only 15 minutes from Point o’ Vue, or into Governor’s Harbour (GHB) which is 40 minutes from POV and can work nicely. US carriers don’t fly into these two convenient airports. Three Bahamian carriers do (see below). 1.Pineapple Air 2.Southern Air Charter 3.Bahamasair
