LUXURIOUS PRIVATE VILLA SUSPENDED ABOVE BEACH: NEW HOUSE, INTRODUCTORY RATES

Governor's Harbour Villa Rental Photos and Description

4 Bedrooms, 4 Baths, Sleeps 10

Welcome to the Cool House, a luxurious and avant-garde villa suspended on columns above a spectacular beach. An impressive feat of engineering and architecture, The Cool House brings you closer to the sand and water than any home on the Caribbean. During storms, the waves will roll right under the house and out the other side. Fortunately, this beautiful pink-sand beach is lapped by the shallow Caribbean, which is usually as calm as a lake. The Cool House faces west. You can enjoy the most wonderful sunsets over the sea every evening from your decks and windows.

The Cool House is located on Alabaster Beach, one of the most stunning and pristine beaches in the Caribbean, featured on the cover of Conde Nast Traveler's December 2012 issue.

Completed in the summer of 2012 and decorated with custom contemporary furnishings, The Cool House has 2200 square feet under air plus extensive decks and outside space. The Cool House’s great room, suspended over the beach, is divided into three spaces. The Entertainment area has a flat-screen TV, DVD, hi-fi sound system, and a PlayStation 3. The kitchen, dining area, and breakfast nook offer contemporary cooking and dining with extensive beach and ocean views. The ultra-modern kitchen features all stainless steel appliances including French-door refrigerator, glass top range, wall oven, dishwasher, and microwave. The third space, the Chill Out area, hovers over the sea, giving a view and proximity to the water found in few houses anywhere in the world. Both the Chill Out Room and the Entertainment area have sofa beds (a total of 3 sofa beds in all).

The Cool House has four bedrooms, each with a luxurious en-suite bath and an ocean-view deck. Two of the baths have showers; the other two have shower/tub combinations. Watch the sunset from your bedroom window, or step onto your deck for a morning coffee, feed the birds or fish, and listen to the Caribbean lapping on the sand.

Outside on the beach, beneath the elevated platform of the house, The Cool House has a large shaded dining area with a gas grill. Grill your catch of the day and dine on the water’s edge. An outdoor shower is also located in this shady spot. This area can be lighted up at night with beautiful blue LED lighting. Additional exterior illumination includes two life-size palm-tree LED lights and other solar-powered LED lighting, which creates a unique and romantic night-time environment around The Cool House.

Amenities at The Cool House include full AC, WIFI, satellite TV, advanced water purification system, and laundry room with a washer and dryer. Four kayaks are provided. A crib is available.

The town of Governors Harbour, a ten-minute drive from the property, 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, a dive shop, 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, 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 The Cool House, and experience all our island has to offer.

Wonderful vacation

  • 5 of 5
Great vacation. Property close to highway. Although walk out deck and on beach in seconds. Beach chairs and umbrella would have been helpful as group wanted to explore other beaches on island. Would stay here again. Ms. Mattie (housekeeper) so sweet. Matthew and his company a pleasure to work with. I highly recommend this property and all affiliated.

Owner's Response: Although the property is close to the road, the road does not have a lot of traffic and the house is oriented toward the water. Guests never complain of traffic noise or other problems from the location. Once you are settled in the house, you will not notice the road at all.

For young families, couples, newlyweds, honeymooners, second honeymooners, anniversaries and anyone who wants to get away from civilization this Caribbean island is unique. I came down with four 18 year old boys for spring break. While their friends were going crazy in Dominican Republic and Mexico these boys enjoyed a comfortable, secluded vacation in the sun.

If you are adventurous and curious there is a great deal to do. You need a car since things are spread out.

We ate and met the owners of The Cove (met Lenny Kravitz), Tippy’s, Rainbow Inn, and The Sunset Grill. We enjoyed meals at Buccaneer’s, Sky Beach Club (great breakfast, tell Steve and Serena we said "hi"), and The Beach House. Kayaking, snorkeling, walking on the beach and relaxing on the beach in magical purple beach beanbags were fun. There is so much more to do (sailing, fishing, scuba, surfing, caving) the next time we come to this island paradise.

"Cool House" visit

"Cool House" visit
  • 5 of 5
There were a total of 7 people that stayed at the cool house during the visit (5 adults and 2 children under the age of 3). Matthew was fantastic in setting everything up and the owner Cris made sure that everything at the house was perfect, meet our expectations, and if any questions arose during our trip, she was amazingly quick in finding a solution. When we first arrived at the house, Cris had kindly arranged for Iiana ( the maid) to meet us at the house, answer any questions, and take us to the nearest store. She also left a really helpful cheat sheet that she typed out that had nearby restaurants, attractions, and tips which we found very helpful. Cris was also wonderful in arranging to have a pack and play by the time we were at the house so we had somewhere safe to have our 1 year old sleep.

The house was immaculate and you would never had known a hurricane hit less than a week before our arrival! We loved the set up of the house and everything in the house was very high end. It had the most PERFECT calm, clear, water that is fantastic if you have any little ones. The beach is great for taking walks and you rarely see anyone else on the beach.

Perfect house, perfect beach, wonderful/amazing service from both Cris and Matthew; we would highly recommend the Cool House and can't wait to come back!
