Governor's Harbour House Rental Photos and Description
4 Bedrooms, 4 Baths (Sleeps 8)
This spacious and luxurious 3200-square-foot villa features an abundance of glass to capitalize on the breathtaking views. 50-mile, 180-degree beach and ocean views spread out in front of you from every major room. The house has two master bedroom suites with king beds and ocean views, and two guest bedroom suites with queen beds. Every bedroom has total privacy, with luxurious en-suite baths and well separated entrances off long hallways.
The spectacular great room, with 20-foot ceilings and a wall of tall glass Nana doors, opens onto a vast patio with private infinity pool (unheated) looking out over the beach and ocean. The elegant dining room shares these views, as does the modern gourmet kitchen with Viking appliances. The house features a complete wet bar overlooking the great room, and an adjacent office area with desk, WIFI and landline phone. Travertine marble floors, Hansgrohe & Duravit Fixtures, and custom furnishings help complete the experience of luxury at this exceptional house.
Other amenities in this villa include a full laundry room with washer and dryer, air conditioning, satellite TV, DVD player, free high speed internet with WIFI, Blue Ray player with in-wall surround sound audio/video in living room, outdoor music speaker, and acres of closet space. It is a short walk down the hill (a minute or two) from the villa to the beach.
The mile-long, pristine, pink-sand beach which this house overlooks is almost always deserted. The beach is perfect for swimming, with crystal-clear water and a smooth sandy bottom. The surf is moderate at this location, because a large barrier reef protects the beach. There are beach chairs on the beach and palapas for shade.
This villa is located in the boutique luxury resort Sky Beach Club. It comes with full access to all the Sky Beach Club facilities and amenities. Sky Beach Club is a small resort that can accommodate a maximum of 38 guests, so it will never be crowded or busy. It has an excellent fine-dining restaurant and a spectacular beachside infinity-edge pool (heated) with poolside service all day long--lunch, dinner, drinks--and a swim-up cocktail bar. This is in addition to your villa’s private pool.
The town of Governors Harbour, five minutes away by car, 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, 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.
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 Sky Beach Club, and experience all our island has to offer.

Guestbook comments from the manager
I was so very privileged to have been invited to attend a Wedding in Eleuthera. Our friends hosted many of their guests at the Sky Beach Club. This resort was incredible. The amenities were outstanding, the views were breathtaking, the food was delicious, and above all, the service from all of the staff left you wanting nothing more. Simple things like being offered a "lift up the hill" by the General Manager, Curtis; or the fact that every single member of the service staff was kind enough to remember you, and address you by your first name. This truly speaks to the level of care and attention put forth in the quality service. Finally, if you had to go to Eleuthera and stay in a shack; you would probably still enjoy yourself; however, when you stay at the Sky Beach Club, you are staying in the most luxurious accommodations imaginable! The houses were beyond my dreams. I could continue, but instead, I would recommend taking the time to visit this place yourself. 10 out of 10 in my books, and I am sure that every single guest shares the same sentiment.
