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.

Cleartide Cottage, the perfect place to relax!

  • 4 of 5

This property was even better than the description. We stayed in the upstairs apartment and so enjoyed the comfortable screened in porch with it tranquel view of Governor's Harbour. We started most days eating our breakfast out there and most evenings toasted the sunset with a gin and tonic before heading out to dinner. The cottage was well maintained and clean. The caretaker, Edgar Gardiner was so responsive the day we locked ourself out!

We enjoyed eating breakfast at Pammy's, dinner at the Buccaneer, lunch at Da Perk and the famout Friday fish fry. The suggestions for activities suggested by the owner were right on. There is a new restaurant called 1648 walking distance away that has an awesome view and a pretty good dinner. We also enjoyed the restaurant at Rainbow Bay. We would definitely recommend this property to others.

Very pleasant in a great loction

  • 5 of 5

Cleartide exceeded our expectations! My wife and I stayed in the upper portion of the cottage which is just the right size for two. The kitchen is small but well equipped. The king sized bed was very comfortable and the bedroom had plenty of storage. The location was ideal. It is an easy walk to stores and eateries. What a great place for a relaxing vacation.

Nice property in a convenient location

  • 5 of 5

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.
