About this home

The property includes the beach, dune, and the yard behind, with the house situated 50 steps behind the dune.


The house is a casual beach cottage, and if you're anything like us, you'll find yourself spending what little time you do spend indoors on the big screened-in porch. Because we built it as a full-time residence, the kitchen wasn't an afterthought but is large and fully functional.



There is a master bedroom with it's own bathroom and a second bedroom and bathroom as well. There is a very comfortable twin daybed on the screened-in porch and another in the central room adjacent to the kitchen.



We've added a full-sized bed and a twin to the back room where the washer and dryer are. We aren't advertising it as a third bedroom, though it can certainly function as one. We set it up as an overflow room perfect for kids. The A/C is a window unit.



On the beach we have two partial-shade chairs permanently anchored in the sand. Nice at any time, but particularly with morning coffee or watching the sunset with cocktails. We also now have a deck straddling the dune; it's a nice place to set up the lounge chairs. The kayaks and paddle boards are stored underneath, making them handy for a quick paddle.

The beach itself is one of the finest on an island of great beaches, with beautiful white sand flats and the picturesque cay just offshore. When you type in 'Gaulding Cay' on VRBO you find pages of rentals, but as our headline reads, only 3 rentals are actually on Gaulding Cay Beach. It says something about the appeal of the beach that so many link to it.

We never discourage anyone from exploring Eleuthera, particularly first-time visitors, but if your intent is to stay put, relax on the beach, and enjoy protected waters, you can't do better than Bahama Time.

    Paradise! We’ll be back!

    Our first stay, but definitely not our last! Home is secluded from neighbors, very well equipped, and just steps from the private white sandy beach on the tranquil blue Caribbean Sea! Plenty of fun things nearby to explore and be sure to check out Taco Tuesday at DaddyJoes across the street. Five Stars!!

    Amazing

    Wish I had seen the listing sooner. I didn't want to leave. Best part was the kayaks and SUP boards.

    Perfect Getaway

    This house was beyond perfect after 14 months of Covid lockdown. It was spotlessly clean and everything was in perfect working order. It offered all the benefits of a traditional beach house yet had all the amenities of an upscale accommodation. The beach was spectacular and changed every day... wonderful rolling waves to frolic in one day and smooth as glass for paddling and snorkeling the next. Just beautiful! The communication with Mike was excellent and he always responded immediately to all questions. Our only complaint was that we couldn't stay longer! Highly recommended!

    Pink sand

    Great week at Bahama TIme. The house was well thought out and well supplied. So nice to have shard knives and some All Clad cookware. We rented a car for the week from the caretaker , Wallace, which was easy. So cool to have paddle boards, kayaks and snorkeling gear included. WiFi worked well for the Bahamas though went down occasionally. We were even able to stream Netflix at night. You could tell this house was a true home to the owners with great pictures , lots of books and just had a great feel to it. And the beach.. Wow. Pink sand like walking on sugar,great shelling, and swimming in crystal clear water. This was our fourth trip to Eleuthera. You do need a car but are rewarded by phenomenal beaches, good local restaurants and as a flyfisherman nice DIY flats to wade for bonefishing. Burchies near N.Eleuthera airport is a good grocery store for the Bahamas and only 20 minutes from the house but a trip to the Island Farm just south of Govenors Harbor is a must for local veges and on Tuesday and Friday awesome fresh bread We certainly shall return.

    A much needed break!!

    Let me take you for a short journey. After a hectic run through Miami airport we arrived. We were met by Wallace (the resident ask Jeeves and or google for the island) at the airport. After a short ride and a intro to the island, we arrived at a driveway lined with Bahamian pines and a light rustic sand road. At the end of the driveway there’s a small hill and then your senses get overwhelmed with the beautiful beach house, sweet smells of the foliage, and the view of your beach. We walk inside the house and you can immediately tell this was a well planned and utilized house. The living room and kitchen were open. Plenty of space to cook, play some of the games supplied in the house or grab a book from the plethora of books in their library. Bedrooms were off of the kitchen and living room. They were clean, spacious and comfortable. The bathrooms were clean and the showers were extremely clean and large walk-in style. Once you take that all in you walk into the giant screened in porch that you could play catch in. A short walk through the soft grass and your in your own private beach. The sand was soft, water clean, and that part of the beach was the best and most well maintained. I had no worries letting my young daughter/part mermaid in the bay by herself. The beach was quiet, with no one on them. There’s two or three other houses, but we saw two people the entire time we were there. Bring snorkel gear or use theirs because the island in the bay has amazing fish and sandollars. The house was centrally located for the glass window bridge, queens bath and Gregory town. Everyone in the town was extremely friendly. Plenty of shops. Find Pete for some great fish! Between the house and Wallace, there was nothing for us to worry about. There is an option for gets rental car through Wallace which we took advantage of. We had no worries about anything the entire time we were there. Our only complaint was that we only stayed for 5 days. We’ll be back here for sure. The owners took pride in this house and are easy to get ahold of if there are any issues. I’m just counting the days I can take my family back.

    AMAZING GETAWAY

    We vacation on Eleuthera yearly and had a large group staying on Gauldings Cay Beach at a few different houses. This property was perfect for part of our group and was a little oasis overlooking one of the best beaches on the island!

    Everything and more

    All we can say is if you have any questions if this is the right house, don't look any further! We spent our mornings on the beach, our days touring the island, and our night cooking dinner, listening to music and hanging out on the back porch. The house was perfect for so many reasons, and we have already talked about making this a yearly trip. It's true what they say Eluethera isn't for everyone, but for these girls from Jersey it was perfect. We look forward to seeing you next year!

    Lovely place on Gaulding Cay

    We so enjoyed the stay at Bahama Time. We will definitely return. The beach, house, and more importantly the people of Eleuthera make this a wonderful vacation spot.
