Description

The house has high ceilings and is charmingly decorated with Caribbean style furnishings and art. Perfect for a honeymooning couple or a small family, the Round House has a queen bed and a sleeping loft (with skylight) which is ideal for up to 3 children.

There is a private thatched beach cabana and freshwater outdoor shower. New kitchen with handcrafted coral countertops and backlit sea glass adds a truly Bahamian feel.
This rustic house is built on a 14-acre estate stretching across to the ocean on the other side of the island. The house is surrounded with lush plants and fragrant tropical flowers which you can enjoy from the new outdoor shower.

You will be able to hear the gentle waves on the beach just 20 yards away and awake to the whisper of the breeze rustling through the coconut trees. You can relax on the 360-degree deck, private beach or in the thatched cabana. There is BBQ area overlooking the water and outdoor dining areas on the deck, in the garden and on the beach.

​The house has new split- level air conditioning and a fully equipped new kitchen including a dishwasher, stove, large fridge, microwave, coffee maker, blender etc. There is a selection of videos and DVDs which can be played on the TV (there is no Satelite TV). There is a phone, CD player and free wireless Internet.

We supply bath and beach towels and linens for your stay and there are laundry facilities you are welcome to use. We provide 4 sit-on top ocean kayaks, 2 stand up paddleboard and other fun beach toys.

Spend days walking or lazing on secluded pink sand beaches. Snorkel or kayak for hours right in front of the house or explore the island’s many beautiful and untouched beaches, cliffs, caves and quaint villages or simply enjoy a book in the hammock on cabana. Catch your own lobster and feast on them while watching the full moon rise out of the ocean.

About The Owner

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)- the youngest was born right in the Round House before the midwife even found her way out to the house.

Additional Location Information

Ideal location right on a beautiful very private beach 1.5 miles NE of Governors Harbour. Directly north (5 min walk) from French Leave beach and 5 mins walk south of Twin Coves beach.

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.

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.

Amazing Stay at The Round House

What a slice of heaven this lovely round house is! My husband and I planned our babymoon here and it could not have been more perfect. The house was equipped with everything we needed and it was a dream to have all the windows open and hear the ocean at night. Doon/ Taja were wonderful hosts and very accommodating. Each beach was private and better than the last - we adventured on Eleuthera a ton, but you could spend a week chilling out in the house and on their beach. Sandy Road to get there and very private. We LOVED it. Will be back soon <3

Good times at the Round House

My wife and I had a fun and relaxing visit to the Round House. We rented a car from our host, which was very convenient. She was super nice and helpful. The surroundings are great. We snorkeled, wandered the beaches and local roads and explored all of the local restaurants. The house is very comfortable for 2, has A/C, a full size fridge and a great porch to relax and watch the ocean. The beach, and other nearby beaches, were pretty empty so you feel like you are alone. The local restaurants (Pascals, French Leave, Bacchus, Buccaneer and La Bougainvillea were all unique and different.

Relax in Paradise

We spent a fantastic week in The Roundhouse at Causarina Bay! It was the perfect location to unwind and relax. We visited several beaches on both sides of the Island. Not one disappointed! Governors Harbour is the best location for heading north or south for day excursions.
The Roundhouse is open & airy & comfortable & welcoming. The bed was very comfy! My favorite was the outdoor shower after hanging on the beach! There is a deck around the entire house with different lounge chairs & a table. Full kitchen if you want to cook.
The grounds are beautiful. The view of the ocean from right outside the front door is amazing. Just walk across the sand road to your own private beach hut with lounge chairs & walk down a few steps to the beach. It was everything we wanted and more!
Doon brought us some fruit from her trees, hibiscus, a fresh coconut and tips on local places. She is amazing! We know we will be back, hopefully in the near future!

Perfect Get-Away

My husband and I were thrilled to find Round House for a much-needed getaway. Being in healthcare and having to deal with COVID the past year, we desperately wanted a retreat from human interaction. Round House fit the bill. Getting to the property is an experience itself. The sandy road, lined on both sides by dense vegetation, ensures that nobody drives down the road unless they have a reason to do so. This certainly plays a role in why the stunningly beautiful beaches are for all intents and purposes, completely deserted. We encountered perhaps only six people the entire time on our multiple miles-long beach walks over the course of a week. The exquisite beauty of the beaches and the water is simply too hard to accurately convey. Round House, itself, is sited on a beautiful property that spans from the Atlantic to the Caribbean. To say the house is quaint, is an understatement. It is obviously a labor of love by the incredible woman who built it herself. It is unique. It is inviting. It is comfortable. It is tasteful. It truly feels like a home rather than an income property. The front of the house has beautiful views of palm trees and other tropical plants as well as the ocean. The outdoor shower in the back of the house has amazing views of dense tropical vegetation. While the proximity to the owner's new home is fairly close, perhaps 50 feet away, the landscaping and design of the new home offer considerable privacy. And while the sand road does bisect the path to the beach, only a handful of cars a day cross in front of Round House.. There is a dedicated beach cabana with palm-frond roof covering two chaise lounge chairs for guests of Round House. We spent much of our time relaxing there getting caught up on our reading. There was always a nice breeze to keep us comfortable, and the ocean was just a few steps away if we needed to get wet. All-in-all, this was the perfect vacation for us. We've stayed in some of the best hotels in the world and not enjoyed our vacation as much the time we spent at Round House. It is something special. Our sincere appreciation to Doon for sharing her property with the world.

Paradise Delivered

My husband and I love to travel - and never to the same place twice. The Round House at Casuarina Bay changed all that. We just returned from our 3rd visit in 4 years and hope to be retuning annually for many many years to come. We found it. Our total paradise. We know we will not find this experience for this price anywhere but here.

Casuarina Bay is magical. This is the place we go to "get off the grid", slow down, breathe, connect with nature's finest, reconnect with each ourselves and each other. The property is located down a private road on the most stunning beach (think Turks & Caicos but better bc you have the jungle background). You will most likely not see another soul (so no need for bathing suits). Choose to spend your days enjoying local beer (stock up when in "town"), frolicking and reading - or head out to explore and experience water adventures such as diving into a blue hole.

Doon, who is quite humble, is like a legend on the Island. A remarkable woman with a remarkable story and a fantastic host & guide. We are beyond grateful that she shares her slice of heaven with us visitors. If you want to experience the gem that Eleuthera is, renting @Casuarina Bay is a must.
