THE ISLAND

We are located on Winding Bay, Eleuthera. Known in the Bahamas as one of the Bahamian “Family Islands”, the island is approximately 100 miles long, 2 miles wide and has a full time population of less than 10,000 very friendly people. Eleuthera has some of the most beautiful beaches found anywhere in the Bahamas or the Caribbean. Many of these pink sand beaches remain deserted to this day. In contrast to places like Nassau or Freeport, this island is a quiet and tranquil retreat. If you want your vacation to include casinos or flashy nightclubs, then you should not come here!

Eleuthera is misspelled in so many ways: Eleutra, Eluthra, Eleuthra, Eluthera, Eluthera or Eluethra. Some of the local inhabitants call it “Citagoo”. The word “Eleuthera” means “Freedom” in Greek. Whatever you wish to call it, Eleuthera Island is one of the real jewels of the Bahamas.

Eleuthera Bahamas is easily reached from Florida or Nassau. By air, it is approximately one hour south southeast of Miami or Fort Lauderdale and a mere 20 minutes from Nassau. Eleuthera has 3 airports. The closest airport to Winding Bay is in Rock Sound which is approximately 15 minutes south of Stella di Mare. Our next closest airport is at Governor’s Harbour which is approximately 45 minutes north. We suggest that you avoid North Eleuthera airport as it is a 2 ½ hour drive to Winding Bay. For those who time to spare, there is also ferry service between Nassau and Governor’s Harbour (more Eleuthera travel information.)

Transportation around the island is mostly by car. Although taxis are available, most of our guests prefer to rent a vehicle. A car, van or jeep, as well as bicycles, can be rented directly from our property manager by the day or week.
