Governor's Harbour House Rental Photos and Description
Two bedrooms, two baths, sleeps 5
Villa Seacrest is situated on a 20-acre Caribbean-side beachfront estate. This lovely house features two bedrooms, each with an en-suite bath. Each bedroom has a beautiful ocean view through large windows.
The open-plan living room and kitchen also have ocean views through a wall of glass opening onto a lovely and spacious screened veranda, which serves as the dining room. A one minute walk takes you to a secluded cove with 1000’ of private beachfront. This bay, called Tranquility Bay, offers excellent snorkeling, fishing and shelling.
Amenities include air-conditioned bedrooms, flat screen TV with DVD player (but no satellite or cable TV), and wifi. Outdoor amenities include a two-person kayak, boogie boards, snorkeling gear, and hammocks on the beach. Just bring your tooth brush! All guests are met by our caretaker upon arrival.
Villa Seacrest shares this 20-acre estate with one other house 100 yards away. The houses are separated by trees and distance, providing each with plenty of privacy. However, they are near enough to be rented together by larger groups of up to 10 guests.
The town of Governors Harbour, less than a ten-minute drive, 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, 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, jet skis, scooters, and bikes. You can have a charter captain take you out for excursions of various types. You ride horses on the beach or on trails. 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 Villa Seacrest and experience all our island has to offer.
