Governor's Harbour House Rental Photos and Description
4 Bedrooms + Den w/ sofa bed, 5 Bathrooms, Sleeps 10
Welcome home! The stately Waite N Sea House invites you up the glass block stairs to the wrap around porch and into the stunning two-story foyer of this charming contemporary yet very homey abode. Waite N Sea features 4200 square feet of living space equipped with every modern amenity.
From the moment you walk through the door you are surrounded by extensive use of warm woods juxtaposed with light bright interiors with sunlight cascading in the many windows.
Your first impression of the interior will be the two-story wooded foyer that will lead you back to the gourmet island kitchen with state-of-the art Jenn-Air and Sub Zero appliances and granite galore. The sunken dining room is adjacent to the kitchen and both rooms overlook the incredible pool area – more on that later! The downstairs also offers a formal living room and comfortable den with large screen TV (with pull out double bed) as well as a bathroom and a laundry room with washer/dryer.
Venture up the hardwood stairs to the second floor and the dreamy master bedroom and spa quality master bath. The four poster king bed will lull you to sleep after you relax in the Jacuzzi tub surrounded by natural stone on every surface of the bathroom. The second story offers two more spacious bedrooms, one with a king and one with a double, and one and a half more baths. A spiral staircase leads you to third floor with a private bedroom filled with light. This crow’s nest room has twin size beds, that can be converted to a king.
Waite N Sea is one of the only houses on the island with a TV in every bedroom. To add to your leisure activities, Waite N Sea also features a home theater room with theatre chairs, 65' led ultra slim tv with superior surround sound and a gym equipped with treadmill, barbells, ab machine, and a TV.
For those who like their entertainment outdoors, night or day, the Waite N Sea House offers the best set up on the island. The private walled pool area features a large lit and heated pool and a 10+ person Jacuzzi hot tub on an expansive deck with a cozy curtained pool pavilion. Don’t worry about missing the big game just because you’re taking a dip. You can relax in the pool or hot tub in front the 60-inch outdoor TV and sound system! This is the perfect home for a social group or fun-loving family.
All of this is a one-minute walk down a private path and stairs to a deserted pink sand beach.
Amenities at Waite N Sea include central air conditioning, WIFI, cable TV, DVD player, surround-sound inside and out with satellite TV as well as individual CD players, telephones in every room, indoor Jacuzzi tub, home theater, fitness room, and an automatic back-up generator to keep it all running if the power goes out. Outside amenities include heated pool, hot tub, outdoor entertainment system, gas grill with outdoor dining area, sea kayak, and two bikes. A chef is available upon request.
The town of Palmetto Point is just half a mile away, a one-minute drive or a ten-minute walk. Palmetto Point is home to the popular Mate and Jenny’s restaurant, as well as several stores. Tippy’s beachfront restaurant is a 5 minute drive. A ten minute drive takes you into Governors Harbor, the main town on the island. Governors Harbor 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 Harbor has grocery stores, restaurants, liquor stores, two banks with ATMs, a bakery, gift shops, and a medical clinic. Friday Night Fish Fry in Governors Harbor, 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 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.
The large, amenity rich and affordable Waite N Sea House is a very rare find on a beautiful pink-sand beach, a short distance from the established Palmetto Pointe community. This is an unparalleled home for partying, relaxing and making lasting memories.
