RESTORED 1800S ESTATE HOME, INFINITY POOL, OCEAN VIEWS, FREE FLIGHTS INCLUDED

Governor's Harbour House Rental Photos and Description

3 bedrooms, 2 full baths, sleeps 6

Mrs. Russel's House is an artistic blend of the historic and contemporary. This lovely house dates from the first half of the1800's. During the recent restoration, the original historic architecture was preserved while accommodating the needs of modern luxury living, including state-of-the-art fixtures, appliances, and electronics, and an oceanview infinity-edge pool. Mixing original furnishings with a unique blend of creatively researched pieces, Mrs. Russel’s reknowned Italian architect created a sense of Colonial nostalgia that is unique and delightful.

Mrs. Russel's House has three full-size bedrooms. Two feature king-sized beds and the third has two double beds. The house has a large formal living room, elegant formal dining room with seating for six, and a fully equipped island kitchen with gas cooktop and state-of-the-art Smeg appliances. There are 2 luxurious modern bathrooms, one with shower and one with shower/tub combination.

A large terrace overlooks the pool and harbour with beautiful ocean and sunset views. Mrs. Russel's shares a pool with two other houses. Amenities at Mrs. Russel's include flat-screen cable TV, air conditioning, ceiling fan, wireless internet, hi-fi stereo, cordless telephone, and off-street parking.

Mrs. Russel’s House is part of the Squires Estate collection of beautifully restored 19th century homes on the hill above Governors Harbour, furnished with antiques from around the world. The décor and level of finish will delight the most discriminating world traveler. Our manager will greet you upon arrival and be available to assist you as needed. She can arrange for daily housekeeping, a private chef, or a car rental (extra charges apply), and provide advice about island activities. Other staff at Squires Estate include a fulltime gardener and housekeepers. Laundry and ironing services are provided on the premises.

Mrs. Russel’s House can be combined with other historic homes and cottages in the Squires Estate collection for larger groups.

Mrs. Russel’s estate is surrounded by a lush garden which is home to many fruit trees, bougainvillea, hibiscus, aloe and coconut palms. Those are just a few of the plants that grace this serene property. The infinity pool serves both Mrs. Russel's House and Toad's Hall. The pool deck is dramatic with its views of the harbour and adds to the delight of the well-manicured grounds.

The town of Governors Harbour, a one-minute walk down the hill, has a charming 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,

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.

Walking over the hill in the other direction takes you to French Leave Beach, the finest beach on the island and one of the great beaches of the Caribbean. By foot, it’s about 10 minutes to French Leave, a mile-long crescent of pink sand which is literally deserted most of the time. Most visitors to Eleuthera rent a car, because the island is rural and spread out, and a car is the only practical way to get around. By car, Mrs. Russel’s is just a minute from French Leave Beach.

FREE FLIGHTS: A stay of four nights or longer entitles you to 2 free round-trip tickets from Nassau to Eleuthera or flight credits from the U.S. (Some restrictions apply.)

Eleuthera is famous for its 100 miles of spectacular, deserted beaches. The island, home to just 8000 residents, is completely safe any time of the day or night. Enjoy the rare experience of picking up hitch-hikers and leaving your keys in the car wherever you go. The snorkeling, diving, and fishing on the island are world class. Boating, surfing, and other water sports are also popular. You can rent power boats, sailboats, sea kayaks, bikes. You can have a charter captain take you out for excursions of various types. There is excellent sightseeing as well. Eleuthera has vast caves, cliffs, a bottomless ocean hole, many unique beaches, historic churches and 19th century homes, and small villages to explore. We hope you will enjoy Mrs. Russel’s estate, and experience all our island has to offer.

"Excellent vacation spot"

"Excellent vacation spot"
  • Submitted: Feb 12, 2013
  • Stayed: Jan 2011
I stayed at Mrs. Russell's House at Squire Estates in January of 2011. When we arrived we were greeted by Annie who showed us to the house and let us know she was around if we needed anything. The house is beautiful! You can tell someone put in a lot of time to make the house feel luxurious and artistic. There was a list of restaurants and phone numbers which made planning dinners convenient. When we explored outside there was an attached infinity pool and lush gardens. The location was perfect as it was close to a grocery store, liquor store, and great restaurants. It was also a quick walk to pink sand beaches and a great starting point to explore both the north and south of the island. I would definitely want to stay here again and recommend this house (or any on the property) to a friend. Eleuthera was a great place to vacation and staying at Squire Estates made it even more enjoyable.
