Historic Hut Pointe, was built in 1944 by the first Premier of the Bahamas (1964-1967), Sir Roland Symonette. Some of the notable features of this historic property are its solid stone construction, vintage hand-made Bahamian floor tiles in the lower suites, interior ceilings and roof rafters constructed with Abaco Pine and mahogany decks on the east side of the building. Recent renovations include many eco-friendly additions to the property including low flush toilets, low flow showers and faucets, active and passive solar hot water heating, energy efficient lighting and rainwater harvesting. With its historic significance and new eco-friendly additions, Hut Pointe is truly one of the most unique buildings on Eleuthera and a great place to begin your vacation.
Getting to Hut Pointe is easy! We are only about an hour from Florida and 15 minutes from Nassau by air. In addition to flights to the island, there is a fast ferry that runs to and from Nassau daily. The island of Eleuthera is famed for its deserted pink sand beaches, superb restaurants, lovely local people and is a great place to simply get away from it all.

With views of the Caribbean Sea and a short walk to the beautiful beaches on the Atlantic side, Hut Pointe is well suited for those who really want to experience the simpler way of life in the islands.

- Travel Info: You can fly direct to Eleuthera from Nassau, Fort Lauderdale, or Miami. Nassau is the shortest flight (just 20 minutes to Eleuthera) and has the most flights per day, so if you can get to Nassau easily, that may work best for you. Southern Air, Pineapple Air, and Bahamas Air all fly from Nassau to Eleuthera multiple times a day (see attached PDF for contact info, websites, and schedules) including flights to Governors Harbour at 8 a.m., 12 noon, 3:30, and 4 p.m. Fort Lauderdale is also quite good, with four airlines flying direct to Eleuthera: Continental, Twin Air, and Florida Coastal Airlines, and Yellow Air Taxi (see attached for contact info).

North Eleuthera is 45 minutes. One tip if you aren’t finding good flights/connections: For some reason, if you ask Expedia.com to book you straight through to Eleuthera, it will often provide few if any decent flights. But if you ask Expedia.com for flights to Nassau or Fort Lauderdale (for example), and then book the flight to Eleuthera on your own, you will have many more options.
