LUXURY SEAFRONT VILLA WITH SPECTACULAR SUNSET VIEWS

Governor's Harbour Villa Rental Photos and Description

1 king size suite, 1 day bed, 1 full and 1 half baths, 1 pullout couch- sleeps 6

This two story Victorian style villa is situated on historic Cupid's Cay in Governor's Harbour, Eleuthera. Suncrest House, even though it is not on the beach, it is engulfed in the beauty of the Bahamian seas, from all sides. The western side that situates the decks overlooks the rocky crag that meets the astounding azure waters of the Exuma Sound. The eastern window displays, the lively dock side where the mail boats come in, which extends onto a half mile white sand beach that houses the fisherman’s wharf near town center, met by the hilly land strewn with an array of wild coppice and flowering plants with antique Victorian Style homes all bordering the tranquil harbor.

Cupid's Cay is a small cay originally connected to the township of Governor's Harbour by a causeway. The Cay is touted as the birthplace of the Bahamas as it is widely believed that William Sayle first stopped here on his trip with a band of religious pilgrims in search of freedom of worship. Sayle titled the Island the Greek word for freedom – Eleuthera.

A few native families still reside on Cupid’s Cay, and located all in a 1 minute walking distance are a few restaurants, a pub, a convenience store and 2 churches. Next door is an architect’s office that’s owed by Theresa’s brother.

Governor's Harbour is a beautiful harbourside town that has earned the title of being a calm and peaceful settlement. The 110 year old Haynes library is situated in Governor's Harbour, along with century old churches. The Haynes Library Beach, and The Fish Fry Beach - where a local fest every Friday - both border the causeway to Cupids Cay and is a 2 minute walk from Suncrest house. After exploring Cupid’s Cay and Governor’s Harbour on foot, you would want a vehicle for exploring the 100 mile long island, its mystical caves, bottomless ocean holes, and it’s abundance of endless beaches that are nestled in Eleuthera.

A true Eleutheran experience

  • 5 of 5
This sparkling new rental was spectacular by every measure. The house was very clean and very comfortable. From the new queen size bed situated in the master suite with a view of the ocean and stunning sunsets; to the convenience of a washer & dryer, new appliances and the flat screen TV, it had all the comforts of home.

The owner and her family were warm, wonderful, and well connnected locals that made us feel like family and left us wanting for nothing during our stay.

Cupid's Cay has a little commercial clutter, but puts you in the heart of Eleutheran culture, surrounded by real food, real people, caribbean coves and white sand beaches, all within walking distance of your beautiful villa.

Rely on the owners to arrange a rental car only because the other 20 beaches, 20 minutes in any direction; where we never saw another person; are too spectacular for words. Hike, explore the caves, snorkle, swim, relax on miles of deserted beaches!

Getting here by plane from Boston was incredibly easy, Fly right in to Nassau and then fast ferry, or commuter plane in to Governors Harbor. We left Boston at 7:40 am and were walking on the beach just after noon.

For your sake we hope you see Eleuthera. For the sake of this beautiful place and the people who live here, we hope we can close the door behind us when we visit again. This gem should be enjoyed and protected. We'll be back!

Home away from home

  • 5 of 5
We had a fantastic time staying in this villa- it had everything you would want in a home: views, laundry room, two bathrooms and beautiful decor. The owner and her daughter treated us like we were family.

We took a rental car all over the island and it was so nice to come back "home" at the end of the day. We have three little children and they loved it too.

You really get a taste of the island people and experience Govenor's Harbour staying here.

Again, we had a fantastic, amazing and wonderful time!!! We can't wait to come back.

Suncrest house is a brand new ultra modern villa with a luxurious decor and lots of natural wood. From the hard wood floors in the bedroom suite upstairs to the hand made bed from natural wood made on site. The daybed and counter surround is all hand made on site. Right down to the kitchen cabinets are locally constructed of cyprus wood. At Suncrest you are so comfortable inside and out with the deck from the upstairs bedroom and downstairs living room you are tempted to stay in all day and enjoy the sea views. You might go outside and do a barbicue on the stone barbecue built on site by the maintenance man --Laveaux. This villa built by Theresa's husband Andrew and her son in law is your home away from home. You don't want to leave the house but with over 50 beaches to explore you must get out. Starting with two beaches right in close walking distance from the house--about 3 minutes - take some beach wares and relax in the crystal clear aquamarine waters.

Other Activities: snorkeling
