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.

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 Bella Luna, and experience all our island has to offer.

Great stay at Bella Luna

Linda and Trevor are great hosts and started us off on a very relaxing holiday. The house is centrally located and close to amenities and the beautiful French Leave beach. The house itself is well appointed and very, very clean - you will have all that you need for meals and laundry. There is a small beach with two kayaks that were used for a few excursions to the island directly before the house. Eleuthera is a wonderful island with wonderful people. This is definitely a place that I will go back; it's one of the few times that I have returned truly rested from vacation. Bring your bug spray though - the sand flies (aka noseeums) are voracious.

Thank you Linda and Trevor for a great stay! We had an amazing time!!

Perfect location

This lovely small cottage fit all five of us wonderfully. It was clean and comfortable. Having good AC is great . Close to town and very near the best swimming beach on the island. If you don't want to leave home just walk outside and swim or kayak to the island and have some great snorkeling. The owners are lovely people who understand privacy, but were there when we needed them. The home is like a large, expensive villa in miniature in both style and location without the expense.

We spent two wonderful weeks at Balara Bay in, possibly, the cleanest and most comfortable accommodations we have ever had during 35 years of vacationing in the Bahamas. The site is very convenient in that it provides adequate privacy, convenient access to Governor's Harbor services (food and gas), very comfortable living quarters and one only needs to trot, sprint or wobble a few feet to go from porch to clean, clear salt water. While we had only two people in residence, the cottage could easily have accommodated groups of 4-6. The preparation of the cottage for new arrivals was outstanding! Clean as a whistle! We only used one of the three bedrooms and our bed was very comfortable. The cottage is full equipped with everything we needed for meal preparation and dining--breakfast and lunch were always taken on the porch from which we could watch the water for rays and dolphins. We looked forward to every evening because that's when the extraordinary sunset shows were playing. Each evening provided a beautiful display of brilliant colors, which also were viewed from our porch. The owners live on the adjacent property and were available to provide any requested assistance but were otherwise "invisible". We enjoyed Balara Bay so much we have already scheduled our three week vacation for 2015. This is an outstanding vacation rental with an excellent location. If we could give it more than 5 stars, we would.

Amazing Caribbean Sunsets and Much More!

Our family spent 4 days at Bella Luna, and had a fantastic time. The cottage had everything we needed and was very clean and modern. Every evening we made our way to the beach to watch the sunset and capture it in postcard photos... but you have to be quick because it won't wait for you! Balara Bay is very quiet and picturesque. It's not rough like the ocean side, but enough of a breeze to keep you comfortable.

We spent most of our time exploring Eleuthera. Bella Luna is perfectly located right in the middle of the island, and minutes from the most amazing beaches and beautiful sights. Governor's harbour (only a couple minutes drive) had everything we needed for groceries & beverages, etc., and the people are very friendly and helpful. There are not many places I would pick up hitchhikers, but we did here and learned more about the island with each new passenger.

If you are expecting absolute privacy and seclusion, it may not be perfect for you. I only say that because there are homes on either side and you are fairly close to the highway. With that said, we rarely saw anyone and you only notice light highway traffic during the day (highway being a sparsely travelled two-lane road). As far as comfort goes, Bella Luna is very spacious with large bedrooms, bathrooms and a nice open-concept living/dining area, but we did find the beds hard and the living room furniture could use an update to something more suitable/comfortable for lounging and winding down at the end of the day (currently wicker with cushions).

The folks at HomeAway were great to deal with. Shortly after our arrival they checked in with us to ensure everything was fine... and of course it was. Linda & Trevor (the owners) met us on arrival, showed us everything we needed to know and made sure we knew they were available for anything we may need... but we didn't.

Most nights we ate at the cottage, but there are some great restaurants within a few minutes, and even more within 30 minutes. We had a couple meals at Tippys (make reservations because they fill up), and ate lunch one day at the Sunset, just on the south edge of Governor's Harbour. If you rent a car, keep in mind that some of the best beaches are only accessed via some very rough and narrow gravel trails... we added our share of scratches to the vehicle we had, but would have regretted not exploring where we did (like Lighthouse Beach & Surfer's Beach).

I can't imagine anyone visiting Eleuthera and not returning again!

A tea cup in paradise

The house is top quality in every detail. 3 full bedrooms and two bathrooms. The beds a very comfortable and the bathrooms have all the amenities including everything you will need during your stay. The kitchen is very complete. We were able to bake, make pizza, ice cream, bread etc. several days we barbecue outside from fresh and delicious fish we bought in the peer to meet, chicken and lobster.
Just imaging getting in the morning to your own private beach, where you can swim or kayak or just seat read and enjoy the view. Every afternoon enjoy the beautiful sunsets that the Caribbean side of the island offers.
Very well located, in the middle of the island so you can go anywhere in less than one hour. Very close to the house you have beautiful miles of Atlantic pink sandy beaches that to our surprise in high seasons were completely for us. Some days we saw a couple of other people others no one. Several excellent restaurants are close by.
The owners Linda and Trevor are the most gracious and helpful and not intrusive. They helped us recommending the rental car to use which accommodates us a change of vehicle the last two days to go to lighthouse beach.
We have been in South Pacific, Tahiti, Bora Bora, most of the Caribbean Islands, Puckett, Bali Hawaii but never seen beaches like in Eleuthera. On top of that we splurge in lobster and Stone Crab at half the price that you pay in USA. And of course the fresh fish on Governors harbor peer. paradise can not get better that this.
Thanks Linda and Trevor for sharing a piece of it.
