LUXURY VILLA 'TIR NA NOG', 10 ACRE OCEANFRONT ESTATE W/ PRIVATE BEACH

Governor's Harbour Estate Rental Photos and Description

5 bedrooms, 6 bathrooms (sleeps max 10), 2 separate beach cottages offer privacy

Welcome to Tir Na N'og, “Land of the forever young”, a luxurious beachfront estate on 10 secluded acres of gardens and walkways. Tir Na Nog includes a spectacular private beach, manicured grounds surrounded by coconut palms, flowers, fruit trees, and a private tennis court.

Tir Na No’g was built in 2007 by local carpenters and craftsmen under the vision of famed interior decorator David Flint Wood. Decorated in the elegant style of an old Caribbean plantation house, the four separate housing structures allow for bedroom privacy, along with group dining and socializing in the Great Hall and surrounding patios. The estate is rented to only one group at a time, and all structures are included in the weekly rate.

Tir Na Nog is situated in the most sought-after location on Eleuthera, the Atlantic seashore on the Banks Road, where a select number of estates overlook a beautiful pink-sand beach, only minutes from nearby restaurants. The buildings on the estate include:

1. THE GREAT HALL: This elegant colonial-style building, surrounded by a large, wrap-around porch with sweeping views of the estate, is the gathering place for fine dining, relaxation and entertaining. The Great Hall features a full kitchen and large dining area with seating for 12. The spacious living/entertainment area, elegantly furnished in old plantation style, includes a large flat-screen satellite TV, DVD movie library, WIFI, books for children and adults, and board games. The Great Hall also has a breezy outdoor dining area with a gas grill, and a roof deck with views of the ocean.

2. THE MAIN HOUSE: This lovely colonial building features another large wrap-around porch with views of the tennis court and gardens. Inside are three bedrooms, each with a full en-suite bathroom and separate entrance from the porch. Two of the bedrooms have king beds. The third has twin beds with two additional trundle beds. The bedrooms in the main house do not connect internally, so you must walk out onto the wrap-around veranda to go from one bedroom to another.

3. THE BEACH COTTAGES: These two romantic cottages with views of the ocean have king bedrooms with full bathrooms, under-counter refrigerators, coffee makers, and outdoor seating areas with deck chairs. They are located 100 yards from the Main House and Great Hall for privacy.

4. THE TIKI HUT: This beachside, open-air shelter has shady seating under a thatched roof. The nearby Cabana has outdoor showers and a storage room housing beach chairs, snorkeling equipment, and beach toys.

5. THE TENNIS PAVILION provides shady seating on white wicker furniture beside the tennis court. The pavilion is fully equipped with tennis rackets and balls. It also contains a laundry room with washer and dryer.

MORNING MAID SERVICE (every weekday except holidays) and on-site caretaker are complimentary at Tir Na N’og. A private chef can be arranged.

A VAST REEF just 300 meters offshore ensures idyllic kayaking and snorkeling conditions for anyone staying at Tir Na N'og. We have plenty of snorkeling gear, as well as beach recliners and water loungers for those of us who prefer to spend the day taking in the sun. Kayaks can be rented for use during your stay. We also have a baby monitor, pack and play crib, and kids’ beach toys for those traveling with children.

THE FAMOUS BEACH RESTAURANT AND BAR Tippy’s is just a ten-minute walk down the beach. Other upscale restaurants within easy driving distance include The Beach House, The Bistro at Sky Beach Club, and Cocodimama. The town of Governors Harbour, just two miles away, 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.

• Daily maid service (weekdays)

• 300 feet of private beach frontage

Tir Na N'og is a place where you can truly find serenity, and take some time for yourself.

Matthew Simon purchased this estate in 2007

I bought Tir Na N'og in 2007, and had it renovated and decorated by renowned interior designer and author of the book 'Island Living', David Flint Wood. The 10 acre estate is situated on an old plantation, and its heritage is reflected in the all of the buildings and furnishings.

Eleuthera means 'freedom' in Greek, and this Island which has managed to escape the mass development which has occurred in most of the Bahamas, really does give you a sense of relief.

INCREDIBLE!

  • 5 of 5
This property is awesome! The bedrooms are each a good size and all have their own bathroom. The beds are very firm, and the bedding is very clean. There are all the necessary amenities in the kitchen, and the dining table is elegant, large, and perfect for a big family dinner every night. We rented this property as a group of 8 for a friend's 40th birthday, and the beach really made the trip. Every day we would pack a cooler, get out the beach chairs, and play/relax on the most perfect, practically private, pink sand beach on the planet.
Tippy's bar is just a short walk down the beach. We did only one "adventure" day, where we all went out in the van exploring and visiting the sights, but I recommend just staying home, since it is paradise already! Sights on the island are pretty far away from each other, and it was a long hot day where we ended up feeling we just saw too much of our van…
You can go down to the water in town and buy a whole fish and grill it back at the house. I highly recommend doing this (especially if you are lucky enough to have a friend who is a chef along with you!)
The island is very rural, no theme parks, no malls, no attractions for kids, but if what you want is a relaxing beach holiday in paradise, this is the place for you!

HEAVEN

  • 5 of 5
Perfect in every way. Beautiful beach, just right for kids all ages, as private as it looks in the photos. Everything we could have possibly imagined. Love that Tippy's is a short beach walk. Snorkeling was fun and the tennis was a daily activity. Would absolutely recommend.

WOW!

The pictures don't do it justice. We had an amazing vacation with our family. The kids played on the private beach building sand castles and enjoying the water. The water was crystal clear. The property was beautiful and very well maintained with amenities close by. We can't wait to come back!

DREAM FAMILY VACATION

  • 5 of 5
I have just returned from a week at Tir Na N'og and I am wondering if it was a dream! The house and property are nothing short of perfection, beautifully furnished, comfortable and directly on a pristine private pink sand beach. The layout of the property affords privacy (in the 2 cabins) a "mess hall" where you can gather for meals and entertainment, and a seperate building with three bedrooms ideal for a family. Its a short walk down the beach to Tippys which is arguably the best restaurant on the island. In the other direction is the beach house where we had lunch and cocktails several times and really enjoyed it. Early morning tennis, long walks on the beach or on the old dirt roads to hidden snorkling finds, or napping in the hammocks,are just a few of the ways to spend your time. The housekeeper and property manager were both extremely helpful. We will treasure our memories of this trip for a lifetime.

BEAUTIFUL HOME AND LOCATION

  • 5 of 5
We recently stayed at Tir Na Nog and had the best vacation. The home was amazing with every amenity imaginable. The location was perfect...a few minute walk to basically a beautiful private beach. The staff was incredibly helpful. The kitchen is perfect for cooking meals at the house and there are a few close local restaurants for those who would like to eat out. We would recommend staying at this home to anyone and hope to visit again soon!

AMAZING!!!

We had such a lovely stay at Tir Na Nog. The staff was wonderful and attentive. Great place for couples and families with a setup that allows for easy gathering and privacy when desired. Having also stayed in a hotel on a Eleuthera, Tir Na Nog is absolutely the way to go. Highly recommend!!!
