NEW LUXURY BEACH VILLA ON HISTORIC BANKS ROAD

Governor's Harbour House Rental Photos and Description

4 Bedrooms, 4 Baths, 2 Kitchens, Sleeps 8

Richview is a new, luxurious, 4-bedroom, 4-bath home fifty yards from world-famous French Leave Beach, one of the most beautiful beaches in the Bahamas. Richview has spectacular views of the beach and ocean. It is located on the historic Banks Road, the premier location on Eleuthera, a mile from the town of Governors Harbour. The Beach House restaurant is a two-minute walk down the beach, and Tippy's beach restaurant is less than a mile away.

Richview is a stunning mix of old-world charm and modern comforts. Amenities include two full-service kitchens (ideal for groups with multiple families), air conditioning, washer/dryer, WIFI, satellite television, three flat-screen TVs, DVD player with video library, VOIP phone with free unlimited local and international calls, CD sound system, child and adult games, a telescope, a full-capacity generator, and a caretaker on duty.

Richview includes a two-story, three-bedroom main house with an annexed honeymoon suite, for that couple in your group who desire extra privacy. Each section contains its own well-stocked, full-service kitchen. The two sections of the house are always rented together, to only one group at a time, so your privacy is assured. (For smaller groups who don't need a fourth bedroom, the honeymoon suite is simply locked off unless requested.) Richview offers great outdoor living space with a huge wrap-around deck with loungers, a gas grill, outdoor dining area, two outdoor showers, a pergola for shade, and an observation deck with spectacular 360-degree views.

You enter Richview into the large Front Hall. This spacious room has a couch, access to the washer/dryer, and sliders to the rear deck. To your right is the computer room (with wifi and VOIP phone) and access to the two first-floor bedrooms. One has a king bed and the other two twins that can be converted to a king. Returning to the Front

Hall, you take the steps to the second floor. Here we have a full kitchen, large dining area, living room (all with BEAUTIFUL beach and ocean views) and a separate queen size bedroom and full bathroom. Off this area, you can enter the sundeck and observation deck. The views from the deck are truly spectacular. The ocean is 50 yards away and you can see 360 degrees of Eleuthera.

Returning to the first floor Front Hall, on your left is the entrance to the one-story honeymoon suite with a king-size bed, living room, full kitchen and large shower/bathroom. All four bedrooms at Richview have private en-suite bathrooms.

Just walk across the street and down our private path, and you’re on the beautiful pink sand of French Leave Beach (also known as Club Med Beach, for the Club Med that was located there many years ago). Richview comes with everything you need to enjoy our beautiful beach, including beach chairs and umbrellas, and two outdoor showers.

In addition to the Beach House tapas restaurant and bar (easy walking distance), Tippy’s famous restaurant is just a mile away. Both Tippy’s and the Beach House offer fine dining and live entertainment. Other upscale restaurants within easy driving distance include The Bistro at Sky Beach Club and Cocodimama. The town of Governors Harbour, less than a mile away, has a lovely collection of 19th century homes and churches overlooking its historic harbor. Buy fresh fish and lobster every afternoon from fisherman at the town dock, or visit the recently restored Haynes Library, which dates from 1897, for the weekly coffee hour for foreign residents and tourists. Governors Harbour has grocery stores, restaurants, liquor stores, two banks with ATMs, a bakery, gift shops, a dive shop, and a medical clinic. Friday Night Fish Fry in Governors Harbour, a street/beach party that brings together all the tourists and locals with food, drink, and dancing in the street, is not to be missed.

CAN'T WAIT TO RETURN

Can't Wait to Return
  • 5 of 5
This was our second trip to Eleuthera and can't wait to return! Richview was the perfect house for us, our 5 year old son, and our teenaged nieces. The home was so well stocked for everything - kitchen, entertainment, relaxing, and beach supplies. The short walk down the beautiful beach path seemed like it was beachfront. Having the Beach House Restaurant, literally three doors down, and Tippy's 1 mile down the road (actually a beautiful beach walk is the way to go), makes this an exceptional location. We are already booked for next year!

RICH VIEW IT WAS!

  • 5 of 5
My husband and I vacation in Eleuthera every year and by far this was one of our favorite homes to stay. It has a perfect view no matter where you are in the house. Property was clean, the layout was perfect, and just a quick walk to the beach. The only concern we had when renting this house was the walk to the beach. The walk was shorter than homes we have rented in the past located on the beach. We were close to all of out favorite restaurants and when eating in the house had all you needed to cook meals.

We booked through Eleuthera Vacation Rentals, Matthew Simon and Tara Davis are on top of everything from your first inquiry to find the perfect location, helping to book the appropriate travel, making sure you have all contact information for everything you need while on island. They check in with you throughout your vacation...they are your life line! They are so quick in responding to your needs.

The property care taker Anne Bethel, also was very helpful and responded quickly to our questions.

We will be back to Richview, it is a beautiful home and perfectly located on Banks Road.

A LOVELY FAMILY WEDDING WEEK

  • 5 of 5
Richview is amazing, the house is perfect for couples or families and you can have your space, and come together. There are so many lovely decks across all levels and the stargazing is great! The beach is right there and the house is well stocked with beach chairs etc. to take over. Anne was so helpful and made sure everything was all good. Here is where I got ready for my big day, and we were married right on the beach in front of the house, it is such a happy house and has given me so many lovely memories.

A happy house, filled with amazing details, straight out of coastal living magazine, this is living the dream!

THE RICHVIEW HOUSE IN ELEUTHERA..GOVERNORS HARBOUR

  • 5 of 5
We had an absolutely lovely time in Eleuthera with our family. Richview was just perfect for us and lovely in every aspect. I hope that Anne Bethel found it in order when she checked it after our stay. Since my son lives and works at Cape Eleuthera, he is very familiar with the island. We had the opportunity to get to Harbour Island as well as the Cape and even Plum Beach (bet you don't know where that is!). What an adventure. The beaches are just gorgeous. I am glad, though, that I did bring coolers of all of my own food, meats, breakfast things, etc. Was easy to do and I would encourage anyone visiting to do that. Traveling the roads (if not a seasoned traveler of Eleuthera) is a bit adventurous but it is well worth a trip to Harbour Island to see its beauty as well. If only interested in relaxing...need to go no further than Richview and the path to the beach. The home had all amenities possible..beach towels, beach chairs, umbrella, outside hose, a/c, plenty of space, t.v.s in every room, etc. We took advantage of adding the second suite to our stay and we are so happy we did that for the extra room. The property manager/caretaker met us on our arrival and was more than helpful as well as available by phone to answer a couple of questions that we had. We did travel down to Tippy's our first night a mile away which was perfect for us. In retrospect, we are so glad we also chose a house on Old Banks Road, an absolutely perfect location and would highly recommend Richview to friends.

BEST BEACH HOUSE DEAL IN ELEUTHERA

  • 5 of 5
This is a top notch luxury house. It is in great shape, well lade out and very well appointed. AND, it is on the prettiest of the several beaches we visited on Eleuthera - and there are plenty of them (actually a SHORT 50 yd walk across a small street to the beach). The view out the back of the house is equally impressive. The beach amenities provided with the house were also excellent. The house is clean, very well insulated and accommodated our 8 folks with plenty of privacy. I highly recommend this property and Eleuthera for those seeking a laid back sitting on the beach week. Matthew, Ann and others we encountered (including the cleaning folks) were all really helpful. Beach Grill & bar (100 yds from house) was excellent as was Tippy's). Fresh fish from the wharf in Gov. Harbor was expensive, but delicious. Bone fishing with Paul Petty was a blast. If you are reading this review, you are already interested, so go ahead and book this one. You will not be disappointed.

RICHVIEW

  • 5 of 5
Everything was easy... from car rental to grocery shopping to finding our way around the island. The house offered all that we needed. We rented the honeymoon suite, also, and appreciated having two full kitchens. There is not a better location as we were within walking distance to restaurants and town. The beach is beautiful and the area very secure.
