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.
