SECLUDED PINK SAND BEACHFRONT ESTATE W/ MAIN HOUSE AND GUEST COTTAGE

Governor's Harbour Villa Rental Photos and Description

Secluded Atlantic Beachfront Villa 4BR/4BA & One Bedroom Guest Cottage

Located a couple of miles south of Governor's Harbour on the Atlantic coast of Eleuthera, looking out onto one of the most beautiful beaches in the Bahamas.

Relax in the warm waters of the Venus Pool, visible only at low tide. Walk for miles on the cool pink sand. Build fires from driftwood and cook under the stars. The houses are at the end of a long private driveway. 'Pebbles, the guest cottage, has it's own parking area, out of sight of the Main House. The houses enjoy complete independence, and do not over look each other in any way.

Decorated in true Caribbean colours, nearly all the rooms look out to sea.

Nearby are some of the best restaurants on the island. Cocodimama is great for sundowners and Mate and Jenny's has real island atmosphere. Cigatoo has a swimming pool and a tennis court. Just down the beach is the famous Tippy's!

Organic vegetables available locally at The Island Farm south of Palmetto Point on the Queen's Highway

Although it is advisable to rent a car, it is not essential as there is a reliable taxi service, which can be booked in advance. Exploring the island is part of the Eleuthera adventure or a day trip to Harbour Island.

Amenities: The Main House has four bedrooms with ensuite bathrooms. One kingsize bed, 2 queens and 2 single beds. The T.V.room has 2 daybeds and shares a bathroom.

'Pebbles' has one kingsize bed, 2 full bathrooms and a sofa bed in the living/dining room. Both houses have fully equipped kitchen with microwaves, blenders, coffee machines, and dishwashers. Linens and towels are included. Washing machine. Telephone for local and incoming calls

DSL high speed wireless Internet, Direct TV with many channels. IPod dock CD players, along with a good library of books, Backgammon and other games also in the house.

Laundry lines hung discreetly behind some pandana bushes!

A wonderful house for family fun or groups of friends who want to enjoy each others company yet retain their own space and privacy.

Activities: Walking for miles on the beach. Swimming, snorkeling and fishing. There is a pool and tennis courts at Cigatoo Resorts just down the road. Bicycles are available for teen-agers and adults. There are several excellent restaurants within a 20 minute radius by car. The nearest is Tippy's, which is less than a mile down the beach, and a little further along is The Beach House. Both have live music on certain nights. Enjoy the casual atmosphere of the island!

The town of Governor's Harbour, 2 miles from On the Rocks, has all necessary shops, banks, travel agent, grocery stores, gift shops and restaurants. It is picturesque and unspoiled. There are no large hotels or casinos on Eleuthera. It is a beautifully quiet and peaceful island. There are many beaches to explore!

Harbour Island is an hour to the north and makes a great day trip. Lunch at the famous Pink Sands resort, scuba diving at Valentine's Dive Centre and renting a golf cart to ride around the island and enjoy the beautiful architecture of the old Bahamian houses dating back to the 18th century.

There is a dive centre down south, on Cape Eleuthera, as well s many beaches to explore!

On the Rocks rocks!

Once you've stayed at On the Rocks, why would you ever go anywhere else? It was perfect in every way. The house is the closest one to the beach except for Tippy's, and unbelievably private. The views are incredible, the sound of the surf rocks you to sleep at night, the house is spacious and comfortable, and a group of people don't feel crowded. The beach is our idea of Paradise, too.

Best Rental on Eleuthera

Our week at On the Rocks was heavenly! And oh, how we hated to leave! Our philosophy has always been that there are too many beautiful places in the world to visit the same one twice...but that changed in April of 2013! We'll be back to Eleuthera and On the Rocks...this time with the entire family, we hope! We drove the entire length of Banks Road searching for other, possibly better rental properties. There simply isn't a better one than On the Rocks! The house, the view, the beach, the Venus pool are all as described; maybe better. The house itself may be a bit dated, and we did have some trouble with the sliding screens. But we couldn't have chosen a better place! Simply wonderful! Now I hope not everyone beats us to the punch for the next time we want to rent!

Fabulous Location

What a PERFECT location - On the Rocks is right a the head of the beach which provides a secluded, sheltered beach location with its own natural ocean pool!
Absolutely stunning! It was terrific to wake up and take long walks on the pink sand beach. The home is spacious and with 4 couples we all had lots of space and privacy.
We plan to go back next year for our 3rd year in a row!

Have stayed with my family a couple of times at "On the Rocks" and can only say that this is the perfect getaway spot for a low-key yet comfortable out-island vacation, set on an incredibly beautiful stretch of coast with the rocks separating two beaches of amazing pinky-white sand. Idyllic!

Heaven on earth!

On the Rocks is one of those places where postcards, paintings and photo book covers (all of which have tried to capture its beauty) cannot do the place justice! The moment I began the drive toward the two on-site houses, I felt such serenity that I wondered if there were some magical drug in the air. Quiet, natural, relaxed, clean – it’s a haven within the haven of Eleuthera. And the beach! The only dilemma that nagged at me was do I swim in that luscious water or take a stroll along the curvaceous and oh-so-private beach first? Of course I did both several times every day! Comfortable, convenient and unpretentious, On the Rocks made me feel like I was on the clouds during my stay, and the only horror was having to leave.

There are several great restaurants, some with live music on certain night...all within a 20 minute drive. The Beach House and Tippy's are only a mile of so down the beach!

In the afternoon the fisherman sell their catch of fresh fish on the dock in both Governor's Harbour and Tarpum Bay!

However, be careful to buy what is in season...Nassau Grouper is OUT OF SEASON from Dec.1-Mar.1. during their breeding period. Craw Fish are OUT OF SEASON Apr.1-Aug.1...same reason. PLEASE RESPECT THESE SEASONS even if you are offered the fish by unscrupulous fishermen...if we want to have fish for the future! The same in restaurants during this time...please ask what fish they are serving!

For those who enjoy rougher waves...Surfer's Beach up north is wild and rugged...where as the LightHouse beach down south is romantic and secluded!

Eleuthera is an island of wonderful places to explore and few people to bother you!

MARCH 22-24 2013 the first ever ELEUTHERA ALL THAT JAZZ Festival in aid of the Haynes Library in Governor's Harbour! For more details, go to FB page Eleuthera All That Jazz!

Notes:
The views from this house are spectacular! Because the house is all on one floor, it makes it easy for families with children as well as making it possible for wheelchairs and people with walking disabilities to be able to get around easily and onto the patio and into the garden. However, they may have trouble getting down to the beach if they cannot be carried or helped. This depends on the height of the sand, which is outside our control! The bedrooms have a/c as well as overhead fans, except the Children's Room, which has an overhead fan and lower level fans.. The living/dining room has a/c and several overhead fans and floor level fans. The view from the Living Room are breathtaking! You can enjoy looking up the coast towards Harbour Is. and out to the Atlantic. There is a large patio going around the front of the house, giving private seating areas to some of the bedrooms. All this is facing the ocean and the beach. Miles of cool pink sand!
