One Bedroom, 1 and 1/2 Baths
This sunny suite on landscaped grounds was decorated by the island's premier designer. It is located on the hilltop above Governors Harbour, in a small community of homes called Governors Estate. Stroll down the hill to the shops and restaurants of town, or in the other direction to world-famous French Leave Beach.

The spacious master bedroom, which also has a door to the patio, has an en suite bathroom with a walk-in shower. There is an additional half bath off of the living room. The master bedroom features a king bed which can be converted into two singles.

The town of Governors Harbour, a two-minute walk down the hill, 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 restaurants, grocery stores, 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.
A 6 to 8 minute walk in the other direction takes you to French Leave Beach, the most beautiful beach on the island and one of the great beaches of the hemisphere. Walk for miles along the sandy shore, or snorkel in the gin-clear waters. The northern half of the beach has no homes and is usually completely deserted. On the southern end of the beach, you can enjoy a meal or a cocktail at the beachside Beach House restaurant. Or stat at home at Peach House and enjoy an outdoor meal or morning coffee on your shaded patio, and grill your days catch on the outdoor gas grill.
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 Peach House, and experience all our island has to offer.
