Property Information:

BE SURE TO CHECK OUT PINEAPPLE FESTIVAL June 6-9 and the PINEAPPLEMAN SPRINT TRIATHLON JUNE 7. We are organizing sponsor. Special rates at the Haven for Pineappletes!

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.

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. (Indoor kitchen reserved for bad weather days only). We'll be fine-tuning the O.K. this winter so your feedback is valuable and please bear with us!
Note: bring jeans and socks as outdoor living can mean no-see-ums in our summer months (Apr-Sept). Greener than bug spray!

The campsites are in a shaded corner of the property. Campers have kitchen and bathroom access. We have tents and equipment for an additional charge.

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

NEW! The Surf Shack is $200/week, $30/nite. 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 (June-Sept.) that the guesthouse is not air-conditioned. It can be hot here! We do now offer two rooms with A.C. We do offer two fans for each room.

Also be prepared in the summer for some bugs. They love women and new visitors. Think socks and jeans at twilight. BYO repellent and mosquito coils.

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 kitchen access (with a freezer), a library, and communal living areas. Airlines will let you bring a cooler too!

Poker night is Monday nite at the Sugar Apple (walking distance)! Pizza nights are also sometimes scheduled! Inquire if interested. Movie Night-Bring some DVDs please! Surf movies accepted as barter! We could use a recent surf mag too =)
JAM NITE is Wednesday - also within walking distance!

Communal inside area closes at 10 p.m. but Tiki Hut and decks and the O.K. always open!

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!

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! =)

    The problem with this hostel is the management. You're sharing space with Tom and Liz, the managers / owners. They are very rude and act like they don't want you there, so it makes for an awkward stay. Liz accused us of taking their snorkeling equipment after we had rented it from Tom, they chastised us for having two people in a "one-person" hammock (we didn't know... it fit both of us), and Liz tried to charge us for the last night of our stay after I had cancelled within the guidelines.
