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.

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.

This was a whole new experience.

  • 5 of 5
We’ve done a fair amount of travel to the Caribbean; this was the first time at Eleuthera. It was just fabulous!
Bella Luna is designed for privacy with the master on one side of the common area and the other two bedrooms on the other side sharing a hall bath. Everything appears new or newer, super clean, well cared for and fully equipped. We were there in July so AC was important. This home has two central AC units that are independently set and work great (much better than window units). The gas grill was just outside the back door, beds are comfortable, rooms quiet; it is just a wonderful place that makes you feel comfortable from the moment you walk in.
The beach had big sturdy beach chairs (better than the picture) and there were usable beach chairs (to take on excursions), blow-up floats, kid’s beach toys, etc. that were in good shape. The care and attention Linda and Trevor give Bella Luna is obvious.
A couple additional random thoughts- the water pressure was great, although be conscious of shower time; inevitably there are power outages on the island, each room at Bella Luna has a battery lamp for emergency lighting. There were big fluffy shower towels and 10 beach towels. We used the washer/dryer; there was detergent. Basic spices were in the cabinet. The wireless internet was great and the coolers came in handy for our trips around the island.
My only pet peeve about the island- no one would rent scuba regulator and BCD! The boat dive trips will have them for your trip but no one will rent for the week to do beach dives; so, bring them. I believe the fine sand gets into the equipment and it doesn’t pay to rebuild a reg after every use/abuse.
Take Linda’s advice for your car rental. All car rentals are with individuals. Our first attempt was a junker and we traded up. Next, get an SUV if you are adventurous and want to explore. The road to Surfer’s Beach was intense and ONLY passable with ground clearance. Go to Harbor Island, rent a golf cart, and find your beach for the day. Lastly, everyone talks about buying fish at 3pm, I had better luck talking to the guys before they go out and you can actually put in an order. No kidding, ask for a Nassau Grouper, Red Snapper, or Spiny and they will go out and spear one for you.

Perfect place

  • 5 of 5
We had an amazing time on Eleuthera, not last because of this wonderful house that we stayed in. The owners are very friendly and will make sure everything is perfect. The house and also the surrounding is very new and clean. There were 4 beds (two king/queen beds and 2 smaller ones) in three different rooms. The kitchen has everything you need, there's a nice little table with chairs right on the beach (10 meters from the house away). The two kayaks that come with the house give you the opportunity to go to the close island, where there is amazing snorkling on the part further away. If you arrive with kids, there are also some games and sand toys. Gorvernours harbor, where you get everything you need, is just about 5 minutes by car away. So is the Governours Harbor airport. But you will never hear any airplanes. It is very quiet which we enjoyed most.

So if you are looking for a quiet, clean place in a wonderful area right on the beach, you found it. This just IS the perfect place.

The house was lovely, clean and comfortable. Balara Bay was was a wonderful place to hang out and relax, and was also fun for snorkeling and kayaking.The location was great as a base for exploring the nooks and crannies of this beautiful island. I only wish we had had more time there!

Absolutely Amazing!

  • 5 of 5
From the moment upon arrival here we were absolutely stunned at how beautiful the house inside and out was. Linda and Trevor were wonderful and were only a phone call away if you needed something. The house provided us with everything we needed and then some. The central air was great and we were very comfortable sleeping every night. The beach was absolutely breathtaking. We spent a lot of time sitting on the beach and in lazing around in the water. You can walk out so far with it being shallow and the crystal clear water and soft sand was just wonderful. My husband and I stayed here for our honeymoon and we truly felt like we were at home, we were that comfortable. I would definitely recommend this home, and we loved Eleuthera so much and when we come back we will be sure to stay here again.

Great house in a perfect location

  • 5 of 5
Our party of three adults, a 3 1/2 yr old and a 5 month old stayed at Bella Luna for 8 nights recently. It was perfect and we really couldn't have asked for more.

Great house, very clean with excellent AC. Linda even provided a Graco pack & play which was spotless, with extra sheets (I've had terrible experiences with travel cribs before!).

The beach was wonderful, a little stoney at the waters edge but at low tide it was very shallow for a long way out (& not that deep at high tide). My three year old loved the rock pool at one end, which he called his "hot tub" because the water was so warm. Lovely Caribbean sand underfoot and generally great for kids to play and adults to float around in! The sea kayaks were awesome, two life jackets are provided too which was great.

I would highly recommend hiring a car, Linda suggested a good one to us. You will need it to get groceries in Governors Harbour which is a couple of miles away. There is also so much to see on Eleuthera.

Linda and Trevor were great hosts but were almost invisible when we didn't need them, perfect when you're on vacation. Tara & Julianna also made the booking process very straight forward.

We will definitely be back, such a relaxing vacation. Thanks again.

Great stay at Bella Luna

  • 5 of 5
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!!
