MAGICAL BEACHFRONT HOUSE ON VERY PRIVATE BEACH. *DISCOUNTED SUMMER RATES

Governor's Harbour House Rental Photos and Description

14 Acre Sea to Sea Estate on private beach. The Authenic Out Island Experience.

Wake up to an experience of Nature you may never have had before:

- the sound of the ocean kissing the shore.

- wind rustling through the coconut palms.

- a swim in the inviting sea before breakfast

- coffee in the cabana

- wine or pina colada on the beach as you watch the moonrise

- curly tail lizards wondering if you'll share your mango with them

- emerald green parrot fish which you can see as you walk along the beach

- moonrise from your bed

- moonset from your bed

- a deep experience of tranquility and calmness

Casuarina Bay is an exceptionally beautiful, secluded eco-friendly Sea to Sea estate on the island of Eleuthera, in the Bahamas.

Just two properties share this very private bay on the Atlantic, skirted by miles of pink sand beaches.

Easily accessible, Casuarina Bay is just 1 hour by air from Miami, and only seven miles from Governors Harbour airport. It's located 1.5 miles northeast of the lovely village of Governors Harbour, one of the oldest settlements in the Bahamas.

The house was designed to take in the extraordinary views and off-shore breezes of the Atlantic Ocean from every room as well as the virgin land and spectacular sunsets to the west.

It nestles amidst picturesque groves of Coconut Palms, Papaya, Sea Grape, Sea Apple and Casuarina trees. The fragrant frangipani waft their intoxicating aroma while the hibiscus bloom fresh flowers each morning.

The property is also blessed with other exotic plants such as ponciana, sour orange, surinam cherry, guinep, soursop, sapodilla and passion fruit.

Ocean-lovers will find some of the best snorkeling, scuba diving and swimming in the world. Underwater visibility is up to 100 feet, with water temperatures ranging between 70 and 80 degrees Fahrenheit.

It's hard to find a more beautiful sea anywhere in the world. Sit back and delight in the changing colours of the sea and sky. Or jump in and watch the magic below the surface.

There's a barrier reef just offshore so Casuarina Bay Beachfront House has protected waters and no rip currents. It's excellent swimming for all ages.

For more information and many more photographs, please visit the link at the bottom of the page.

The adventurous traveler can explore nearby islands and virgin coral reefs, swim with dolphins or exotic tropical fish, or charter boats for world-class bone or deep-sea fishing.

Other sports available on the island include sailing, kayaking, paddle boarding, darts, pool, spearfishing, tennis and surfing.

The rustic Beachfront House was designed and built to savor the incredible natural unspoiled beauty of Eleuthera. It's only 20 yards from its own pink-sand beach, so wherever you are in the house you have breathtaking views in all directions. To the east you see the turquoise ocean and glistening beach. Looking to the west your eyes rest on untouched green hills and colourful Caribbean sunsets. At night the brilliance of the stars and moon are unforgettable.

This romantic wooden house sleeps up to 8, with 4 bedrooms (1 king, 2 queen (1 with A/C) and one with twin beds that can be made into a king- also with A/C), 2 bathrooms, living and dining room, kitchen, decks on 3 sides(with 2 tables for al fresco dining). Two of the bedrooms have air conditioning. The other two bedrooms and the living areas and kitchen do not have air conditioning, but instead they have large doors/windows to capture the ocean breezes and fans. The garden (queen) has exterior access only.

Relax on our private beach in the thatched cabana, with a freshwater shower.

This is a perfect location for the adventurous traveler looking to enjoy the natural beauty of this magical island.

Amenities: Free wireless Internet, Phone, satellite T.V + VCR, CD and tape player, large fridge, high powered gas stove, dishwasher, coffeemaker, blender, toaster, barbecue, washer and dryer, kayaks, beach cabana with outdoor shower.

Activities: Spend days exploring deserted pink sand beaches, kayaking along the coast or snorkeling or diving exquisite reefs just in front of the house from our ocean kayaks.

Excellent fishing- deep sea (for tuna, mahi mahi, kingfish etc.), bone-fishing, bottom fishing, line-fishing or spearfishing.

Go to the weekly village fish fry and meet some of the local characters.

Sit on the beach at night and watch the stars or the moonrise.

Guestbook comments from the manager
Casuarina Bay offers a true glimpse of the "real" Bahamas. A perfect setting for our family get away. There is a television, but it was refreshing to see my 3 boys opting to be OUTSIDE (day and evenings) on the perfect beach doing what kids don't do enough of these days. It's always difficult to pull ourselves away from Eleuthera.

L'endroit est magnifique mais partout sur l'île les plages sont sublimes . Le confort est trés moyen , le chemin d'accés épouvantable , nous avons eu du vent et il était impossible de dormir à l'étage . Le vent passait sous le toit avec violence , le bruit était incroyable . La salle de bain est trés quelconque , la baignoire est à changer en urgence . Nous sommes partis 3 jours avant la date prévue !
Décevant !!!

My five longtime friends from highschool and I, spent six wonderful days at this captivating place in paradise !! the house had everything we needed, very nicely decorated and the views breathtaking! The beach is just stepps from the house, no need to even wear shoes, and the house very private which is just what we wanted. The snorkling was great too.

My wife and I spend 8 days (not enough) at the end of March/beginning of April 2010. I wish I could wake up in that bed and see the ocean like that everyday. The house is top notch in every way, much to big for a couple, but we enjoyed the space! Furnishings and fixtures were perfect. The beach is right there across the track of a road that eventually leads you to paradise. We enjoyed the jungle bush out back and the feeling of total isolation. Lots of birds, lizards and the occasional potcake to keep us company though. The beach is gorgeous; wished it had been warmer to enjoy it more.Interesting stairway to the upstairs; we developed many new muscles! We loved the place!

I grew up on Hog Island (now Paradise Island) near Nassau and watched the place slowly deteriorate over the years. Our stay at Casuarina Bay was like coming home again, the way I remembered it from the fifties and sixties...even better in some ways. It is truly a magical unspoiled spot.
On the practical side, we loved the informal, cozy design of the wooden house especially the upstairs southern bedroom open to the breezes and getting both the rising sun in the morning and the setting sun at night. We had brought several books but ended up browsing the fantastic house library instead. Everything worked perfectly, and Edgar the caretaker was very helpful. Can't wait to go back.

Dear Taja and Family,
BLISS is not something easily found, but Chris and I found Cassurina Bay to be a rare find, a gem. This is what we were seeking in terms of bailing out of the maddening crowds, a true spot of paradise. The Bahamian people could not be more delightful. We felt like 2 children contiually enchanted by each experience...the food, beaches, snorkeling or just hanging at the Beach House was a treat. I preferred the wild Atlantic side and Chris the calm waters of the Carribbean. There is a yin and yang energy in Eleuthera. Oh yes, and the Hog Fish at Coco Di Mamma's was sublime as was the service. We will be back! A week did not seem long enough, so next time we will plan a longer stay. Thank you for sharing your bit of paradise.
Pattie and Chris

Fall asleep and wake up to the soothing sound of the ocean. Other Activities: Wonderful snorkeling, swimming and kayaking right off the beach in front of the house. The 2 best beaches on the island are on either side of you: Club Med (French Leave ) beach and Twin Coves both only 5-7 minutes walk. Close to Governors Harbour (1/2 mile to the Beach House) but you have the privacy of only one other property on the whole bay. Fantastic if you want to get to the best beaches without driving - for your morning coffee or to watch the moonrise. Superb bird and sky watching.
