Property Description

Our location (a 7-minute walk from Surfer's Beach) and our spectacular ocean view are the first things that attract our guests.

Surfer's Haven is for the adventurous traveler looking for a unique experience. There is a REMOTE feel here.

Our island of Eleuthera is stunningly unspoiled. We offer mountain bike, surfboard and mask/snorkel rentals. Or guests can hop aboard one of our adventure tour mini-trip specials.' This is a 2-3 hour excursion we run when the schedule allows featuring activities like a drift snorkel down Current Cut and cliff jumping. Half-day and full-day trips also offered at a discounted rate.

Our Bahamas Out Island Adventures tour company received the Trip Advisor Certificate of Excellence for 2015!

The guesthouse offers large decks for sunbathing, yoga or napping in our hammocks. Our 'apartment' room has its own balcony, full bathroom, kitchen and queen bed. The apt. has a private entrance and with it's million dollar view is one of Eleuthera's best deals! Studio One has a queen bed and Studio Two has two single beds. They share a bathroom and open up onto the biggest deck of the house. All the above rooms come equipped with a fridge.
NEW WINTER 2013/14: The O.K. (Outdoor Kitchen) opens giving guests their own fully-equipped open-air, ocean view cooking area. We'll be fine-tuning the O.K. so your feedback is valuable! GUEST COMMUNAL AREA IS IN THE O.K./TIKI HUT ONLY. Reception area inside does have games shelf, library and rental equipment.
Note: bring jeans and socks as outdoor living can mean no-see-ums in our summer months (Apr-Sept). Greener than bug spray!

We have two campsites in a shaded corner of the property. Campers have kitchen and bathroom access. $40/night rate includes tent and sleeping equipment. Bring your own equipment = $30/night. Campers are expected to keep their luggage in their tent. Small space provided inside for overflow. Sleeping pad, sleeping bag, pillow provided at the $40/night rate.

OPT TO SHARE: Opt to share any accommodation and split the rate (based on another opt to share booking). Notify us when booking.

ALSO OFFERED: The Surf Shack is $40/night. (discounts on 2 week or longer rentals) For the budget-minded only. Great for some but not for everyone! It's a small shack with some nice amenities but water must be toted from your tank out back for flushing toilet and showering.

Please note during our summer season (May-Sept.) that the guesthouse is not air-conditioned. It can be HOT here! We do offer two fans for each room.

Also be prepared in the summer (and even winter) for some bugs. They love women and new visitors. Think socks and jeans at twilight. BYO repellent and mosquito coils. Women quit shaving your legs as much - it can help!

Groceries in the Bahamas are PRICEY and budget-minded guests can bring grocery items with them. In the spirit of hosteling the Haven offers full outdoor kitchen access (with charcoal BBQ - upon request), game shelf, and library. Airlines will let you bring a cooler too!

Poker night is Monday night at Elvina's Bar in Gregory Town. Haven Pizza nights are also sometimes scheduled! Inquire if interested.
Surf movies accepted as barter! We could use a recent surf mag too =)
JAM NITE is Tuesday and Friday at the Sugar Apple- also within walking distance! Their restaurant is open as of winter 2016 as is Surfer's Manor restaurant.

AGAIN: Communal areas are now only the outdoor Tiki Hut (adjacent to the O.K.) and decks. Enjoy outdoor living!

Visiting yoginis and yogis are sometimes here and offer free yoga classes. We offer work exchange for anyone interested in teaching yoga. Also surfboard repair and trail maintenance/cutting can be work exchanged!

It's all set in a laid back atmosphere only the Bahamas can offer. Explore the native marine forest surrounding our property and walk to one (sometimes two) nearby bars (happy hour-only). Nearby settlements have other dining establishments.

Also -- wireless internet access! Bring a WiFi device. Free wireless. Internet is UP! DSL connection can be slow, especially when a lot of folks are on it. =)

We offer coffee with your rental -- bring your own mug if possible! Whole coffee beans always accepted as barter item. Bring a dark French Roast if possible! =)

OPEN TO ALL: Sign up for surf lessons while you are here. Discounts for Haven guests!

HAIRCUTS BY LIZ: styLIZe while you're here with our live-in hairdresser!

LONG TERM RENTALS are available, please email for info

INCLUSIVE PACKAGES: Add meals and activities for 1, 2, 3 nights (longer packages available for solo travellers)

WE MAINTAIN a 24-hour check-in for travellers arriving late or early but rooms or dwellings are not guaranteed to be ready to move into before 12 noon p.m.

IF EQUIPMENT RENTAL is important to you, please reserve beforehand.
