Governor's Harbour Villa Rental Photos and Description
Two Bedrooms, 3 Baths, Private Pool
Brand new! This elegant designer villa was just completed in March of 2013. Set on an elevated lot and built with an abundance of glass. The living areas open to gracious verandas on the front and to a private swimming pool to the side. Built by the island’s top custom home builder and decorated by its premier interior designer, Tops is stylish and comfortable. Tall ceilings throughout create a sense of grandeur and a spaciousness.
Tops features a large open-plan living and dining area, perfect for entertaining, and a fully equipped kitchen. The great room opens onto a veranda via two sets of sliding glass doors. There is also a powder room and laundry room off the living area.
The two bedrooms have en-suite bathrooms and walk in closets. Both have sliding glass doors that open onto a shared wrap-around veranda. The master bedroom has a king-size 4 poster bed. The second bedroom has twin beds that can be converted to a king.
Outside there are landscaped garden areas and decks as well as a small private swimming pool and patio area. Amenities include air conditioning throughout, cable TV with DVD player, and high-speed internet with wifi.
Tops is located on a hill top in Governors Harbour, in a small quiet community of vacation villas called Governor’s Estate. The town of Governors Harbour, a five-minute walk down the hill, has a charming collection of 19th century homes and churches overlooking its historic harbor. Buy fresh fish and lobster most afternoons 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.
A 10-minute stroll down the hill in the other direction takes you to French Leave Beach, a mile-long crescent of pink sand that has been ranked in the top 20 beaches of the world. Most visitors to Eleuthera rent a car, because the island is rural and spread out, and a car is the only practical way to get around. By car, Tops is just a minute from French Leave Beach.
Eleuthera is famous for its 100 miles of spectacular, deserted beaches. The island, home to just 11000 residents, is known for its friendliness and safety. Visitors enjoy the rare experience of picking up hitch-hikers and leaving their keys in the car. 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 Tops, and experience all our island has to offer.
