Directly across the road from the world renowned Tippys Restuarant; right next door to the famous Pineapple Fields Resort.

Walk to Banks Road Deli with daily mouth watering baked treats as well as many food favorites. Just next door to them is the famous Levy Preserve with over 40 acres of hiking trails and daily educational seminars on all the indigenous insects, birds, reptiles and any other living creatures on the island. 3 miles to downtown for groceries, liquor stores, gas, the famous Haines Library (oldest in the Bahamas) and of course the every Friday night FISH FRY where the roads are closed off for dancing in the streets to every kind of fun music, limbo contests and partying with many locals as well as visitors. Many, many other things to see and do on Eleuthera where a fair priced rental car (Naaman Rolle is highly recommended as reliable and competitively priced) can take you to and from the 110 mile tip to tip distance of the island. Upstairs in the Bailiwick House is 2000 square feet with 4 bedrooms, 3 of which have their own private bath area. Two of these have California King beds (one also has a twin bed). The other bedroom with private bath has a queen bed and the smallest bedroom has a regular sized bed. The living room with formal dining area is an immense 30 feet by 20 feet. There is also a kitchenette area that sits 6 with a half bath next to it. The kitchen is stocked with all sizes of pots and pans if cooking is your pleasure. It includes stove, dish washer, microwave, toaster oven and George Forman grill. EVERY room in the house has a ceiling fan and separate Mitsubishi split air conditioning units for total comfort. There is a full wall of over 100 classic books in the hallway library for those that enjoy reading while vacationing. The house has a washer and dryer on the ground level with a toilet right next to them. Cable TV as well as internet and home phone for local calls is included. There is a front deck 30 feet by 10 feet with views of the ocean over the tops of the trees. The upper back deck is a remarkable 100 feet by 6 feet going the full length of the house. Two of the bedrooms have doors opening up to this deck. However, the GEM of the Bailiwick House is the brand new lower back deck in front of the L-shaped in ground pool. It is a 30 feet by 30 feet totally private oasis that has the cocktail party mentality for entertaining as well as the serene quiet environment for those that prefer just that. Downstairs has a private apartment that can be included with the upstairs rental for an additional discounted rate of $100. per night or rented separately for a single person or couple at $175. per night.. It has a California King bed, ceiling fan and air conditioning just like upstairs. It has a private bath area with shower and one of those deep cast iron bathtubs with legs that you remember from yesteryear. The 1000 feet of driveway from Banks Road to the Bailiwick House assures you of total privacy. It cannot even be seen from the road. The beaches of Eleuthera are legendary. The velvety pink sand created from the crushed coral are spoken about in numerous world travel magazines and documentaries. Be it Harbour Island, Spanish Wells, French Leave Beach, Ten Bay, Surfers Beach, Cocodimama, Rainbow Bay, Light House Beach, Cape Eleuthera, etc etc etc. But let it be known that right across the road from the Bailiwick House behind Tippys is a 3 mile stretch going north and south of some of the most magnificent beach area in the Bahamas, if not the world. That's OUR beach!!More

Very nice large house. Some of fixtures and fittings are a little dated, but everything in good working order. 3 large en-suite bedrooms and a 4th single room on main floor, with a 5th bedroom downstairs. Fabulous location, 2 minutes walk from a beautiful beach...More

How to get there
The Bailiwick House is 15 minutes from Governors Harbour Airport, 1 hour from North Eleuthera Airport and 30 minutes from Rock Sound Airport. We are on Banks Road right next door to Pineapple Fields and right across the street from Tippys Rest. These are two places that ANYONE on the island can direct you to.
