Andre ting, der er værd at bemærke
The original English settlers named this island "Eleuthera" from the Greek word for freedom. They meant religious freedom. For the modern world Eleuthera has come to mean more than that. It means freedom from noise, freedom from crowds and city congestion, freedom from overbooked schedules. And, for many vacationers from northern climates, freedom from winter.
Eleuthera's a long, thin island - 110 miles long but, at its widest, only 2 miles across. It's blessed with an abundance of spectacular beaches and perpetuatal summer - winter highs are in the mid 70's, summer highs in the mid to upper 80's. Generally, Eleuthera is 3-4 degrees cooler than Florida, with constant sea breezes.Eleuthera is unusual in that it is relatively hilly, reaching an elevation of 100 feet, much more than most of the other Bahamian islands, and Florida. This fact gives it a scenic advantage, unshared by the other Family Islands. With a population of about 8,000, Eleuthera, unlike Nassau, does not have "big city" feel. Bahamians are known to be some of the warmest and most friendly anywhere. Governor's Harbour, the capital, is located at the mid-point of the island and has small town charm and is a great jumping-off point for exploring both north and south Eleuthera. The island is a nature lovers paradise.

There are so many things to do at Casuarina Bay and nearby. From swimming, snorkeling and kayaking right from Casuarina Bay to shelling and exploring the endless beaches and lovely beachside restaurants.

For SCUBA divers there are incredible reef, wreck and wall dives teeming with underwater life.

Eleuthera is well known for excellent bonefishing as well as deep-sea, handlining and spearfishing.

Nearby you will find golf, surfing and tennis as well as cliffs, caves, blue holes and incredible natural wonders to explore.

For a more relaxing experience, you can arrange to have a massage therapist come out to Casuarina bay.

One can even charter a lovely sailing boat for a day or sunset cruise

The McKinney family has lived in The Bahamas for generations. At 17 Doon was teaching school in a remote village in Botswana. She fell in love with the idea of living in a round house. When she returned to The Bahamas she decided to move from Nassau to the remote and untouched island of Eleuthera and build her own round house. Everyone was a bit skeptical of this young woman clearing the land by herself and building a house with no electricity, running water, car or a telephone. Camping out every night on the site helped her develop an intense connection with the land and gave her the opportunity to build a house that was perfect for the location. She decided to build 11 foot arches on all five sides of the house to allow the ocean breeze to sweep into the house. She nestled the house among coconut trees and Casuarina trees where you can hear the sound of the wind in the trees and the waves on the beach. She surrounded the house with a garden full of beautiful hibiscus, oleander, seagrape, coconuts and other native flowers and trees.

 It was a challenge for a woman with limited carpentry skills to clear the land and almost single-handedly build a house- having never built so much as a box. Doon persevered and used creativity to overcome many of the obstacles she encountered. While still working on the building of the house Doon married and had 2 daughters (Casuarina and Taja)- Taja was born right in the Round house before the midwife even found her way out to Casuarina Bay. 

 As her family began to grow, Doon decided to build a guest cottage. She began with a large rainwater storage tank- as the only water to the area was what could be collected from the rain. She stood on top of the water tank, looked out across the beach into the ocean and was so inspired that she decided to put a bedroom there looking out over the ocean. A few months later as she was working on the roof of the new bedroom she was astounded by the spectacular view the added elevation gave and decided to build another floor and put the bedroom higher up. So what began as a small guest cottage grew into a 3 storey, 4 bedroom house with extraordinary views to the ocean called the Beachfront house.
