Overview

Governor's Harbour House Rental Photos and Description

2 Bedrooms, 2 Full Baths, Sleeps 5

Cleartide Guest Cottage sits in its own private garden on the beautifully landscaped grounds of a waterfront property right in Governor’s Harbour. The main living area of this fully restored, antique-filled cottage is on the second floor to take maximum advantage of the stunning view of the harbour and historic Cupid’s Cay. The charming and well-appointed living room features a vaulted ceiling. It looks out to a screened porch furnished with comfortable wicker chairs and a table for dining. Off to the right is a small but fully-equipped kitchen with all new appliances. To the rear, overlooking the garden, is a master bedroom with king-size bed and en-suite bath with walk-in shower.

On the ground level below, accessed from the upper floor by an outside stairway, a spacious foyer leads to a second master suite with a queen bed, full bath and private garden entrance. The downstairs also features a den with a daybed and office area, and a shaded porch overlooking the harbor.

On the ground level below, a spacious foyer leads to a second master suite with a queen bed, full bath, and private garden entrance. The downstairs also features a den with a daybed and office area, and a full size washer and dryer. Through glass doors off the den, there is a second shaded porch overlooking the harbour. Also on the lower level there is a separate small fridge, coffee maker, microwave and toaster oven so that guests on this level can make early morning coffee or a late night snack without disturbing those above.

Cleartide Guest Cottage is fully air conditioned and equipped with cable and high speed wifi Internet, flat screen TVs in the living area and bedrooms, and a DVD and CD player. There is a gas grill in the garden and there are beach towels, beach chairs, tennis rackets and snorkeling equipment available for guest use.

The town of Governors Harbour, steps from the cottage, 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 Cleartide Guest Cottage, and experience all our island has to offer.

Nice property in a convenient location

Comfortable and cozy home in Governor's Harbour. Convenient location to grocery, airport, and beautiful beaches. Eleuthera vacation rentals was very helpful providing information about the island. We will look forward to returning next year!

Absolutely Charming

  • 5 of 5
Cleartide cottage was clean and very comfortable. Soft chairs and sofa along with very comfortable rockers on the screened porch were a pleasure to sink into after a long day snorkeling and shelling. The screened in porch is up in the canape of trees which were filled with birds. It is just a short walk to town, where everything you need is at hand. The owners were lovely and welcoming and the location is perfect as far as getting to the best beach and restaurants. The kitchen is a little tight for more than one cook, but was well supplied. Overall for a group of four or less it is a fabulous find.

Exactly as described.

  • 4 of 5
The position and condition of this property was excellent.Clean and very well equipped. It is ideally positioned just a few paces from the sea and shops. The Friday fish fry was great fun and a great place to meet locals and tourists. Local restaurants provide good food and atmosphere although be aware that Tippys will add 18% non discretional service charge. The beaches in the area are beautiful and rarely have more than 2 or 3 people on them.
We would have no problem recommending this property to friends looking for peace and quiet among idyllic surroundings.

Love Eleuthera and the Cleartide Cottage!

  • 5 of 5
This cottage in Governor's Harbor is cute as a button, well appointed, with a beautiful yard, and a fantastic view of the harbor! I loved the convenient location and had so much fun strolling around the area, talking to the local people, visiting the eateries and shops, the wonderful bakery, and the very old library and churches. And the breathtaking French Leave beach is less than 10 minutes away! In the evening, it was great to fix dinner and eat in the screened dining area on the second floor, watching the sunset over the Caribbean! I would recommend a visit to Eleuthera to anyone who would like a visit to the Bahamas without all the tourist trappings - but still with plenty to do, lots of conveniences, and some of the most beautiful beaches in the world! And a stay at the lovely and convenient Cleartide Cottage right in Governor's Harbor was the perfect choice!

Superb

  • 5 of 5
My husband and I stayed for a long weekend, and had a wonderful time.

It's all true - the description, the pictures, the comforts, and the activities. The space was well-appointed, very comfortable, clean, and well-maintained.

The location is perfect: you can walk to get sundries, bakery items (yummy pastries and breads), and shop. Everyone is friendly; a truly joyful place. Also, there is a community fish fry every Friday about two blocks from the property -- not to be missed, especially the super-fresh conch salad.

We had access to a car, so we were able to see a lot of the island, and dine in restaurants that were further afield. Also, there are food vendors in the area if you want to cook and eat in.

I hated to leave and long to return (soon). I highly recommend this property.

Eleuthera is Fantasy Island!

  • 5 of 5
This was the very best vacation I have EVER had...and I've traveled quite a bit! The Cleartide Guest House is perfect--casual and comfortable--and has everything you need to make the stay easy and convenient. The island offers the perfect combination of relaxation and exploration, with warm turquoise water...pink coral sand...and endless beaches--we went to a different one every day, and most of the time we were the only ones on it. Terrific snorkeling opportunities...and there is a famous surf beach up the island a bit, although that wasn't our thing. We met wonderful people, and had a true Bahamian experience. If you're looking for a big glam hotel with room service this isn't it. If you're looking for a unique opportunity to get away and do something unique, then this is the place for you. I highly recommend it! GS
