About the property

Cozy, serene, 1 bedroom house on a 1 acre lot facing a stunning, coral beach.

The best things about Off The Reef are the view, the snorkeling, the secluded beach and the fact that we are central on the island. Great for traveling the full length of the island. North on one day and then south.



It is on a beautiful, property that gently slopes down to the ocean.

Perfect for couples looking for rest and relaxation along with lots of Sun, Sand and Beach.

Swimming-basking in the sun-fishing-barbecuing on the large patio, snorkeling-long tranquil walks-island tours-bird watching-deep sea fishing-shelling-enjoying all the beach has to offer. Take your pick.

Nothing is guaranteed but we have seen Fairy Balet, Bar jack, Queen Angel fish, Trigger Fish, Grey Snapper, Sergeant Major, Nassau Grouper, Yellow and Blue Taff, Clown Wrasse, Stingrays, Barracuda, Blue Angel fish to name a few while snorkeling in front of *OFF THE REEF*.


There are so many beautiful, secluded beaches on Eleuthera.

Try visiting just a few.

Lighthouse Beach on the southern most tip of the island and Whiteland beach on the Atlantic side about four miles south of Rock Sound are especially beautiful.

Get a copy of The Elusive Beaches of Eleuthera and explore away.

Fishbone tours offers an adventure tour that is fun for everyone.

They also offer other fishing trips for the seasoned fisherman or woman.
