BEACHFRONT HOUSE (SLEEPS 8) ON VERY PRIVATE BEACH.

Governor's Harbour House Rental Photos and Description

Beautiful Eco-friendly Home on Spectacular Private Beach

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

Just two lovely houses 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 affords a spectacular view of the Atlantic Ocean from every room, amidst a picturesque grove of coconut palms, colorful hibiscus, fragrant frangipani flowers, sea grape and Casuarina trees.

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.

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 golf, 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 colorful Caribbean sunsets. At night the brilliance of the stars and moon are unforgettable.

This romantic wooden house sleeps 6-8, with 4 bedrooms (1 king, 2 queen (1 with A/C) and 2 twins that can be made into a king- also with A/C), 2 bathrooms, living and dining room, kitchen, decks on 3 sides. Two of the bedrooms have air conditioning. The other two bedrooms and the living areas and kitchen do not have air conditioning, but they do have large doors/windows to capture the ocean breezes.

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 stainless steel fridge with ice maker, dishwasher, coffeemaker, blender, 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 in 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.

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 !!!

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.

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.

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.
