EXOTIC ISLAND VILLA WITH HARBOURVIEW AND PRIVATE POOL

Governor's Harbour Villa Rental Photos and Description

4 bedrooms, 3 full bathrooms, sleeps 8

Welcome to Indigo House, a beautifully appointed home on the hill above Governors Harbour, Eleuthera. Indigo has spectacular harbor and sea views, and is within walking distance of shops, restaurants and the pink sands of world famous French Leave Beach.

Indigo has a large private swimming pool, three outdoor dining areas, and a harbor-view terrace, a perfect location to watch the sun set over the Caribbean. The main upper level of Indigo House features spectacular harbour views from all major rooms. It contains a large foyer and an open-plan living and dining room elegantly furnished from Restoration Hardware. The spacious living room has lounge seating for nine, and an office area furnished with a vintage desk. The dining room features a 14-foot table with seating for 12. The kitchen is fully equipped with modern appliances, including a five-burner gas range, and provides counter seating for four.

The master bedroom, also on the upper level of the house, has a king bed and beautiful harbour views. There is a full bathroom with a walk-in shower. A second king bedroom on the upper level overlooks the pool and gardens.

The lower level has a second spacious living room that opens onto a covered terrace leading down to the lush tropical gardens. There is a full kitchen downstairs for guests' convenience. The downstairs level has two bedrooms, one king and one queen, each with a full bathroom. There is also a sofa bed in the downstairs living room.

A tropical garden surrounds charming Indigo House. Amenities include air conditioning in all the bedrooms (but not in the living/dining areas), ceiling fans in every room, washer and dryer, high speed wireless internet, cable TV, iPod dock, and landline telephone.

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 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.

Walking down the hill in the other direction takes you to French Leave Beach, the finest beach on the island and one of the great beaches of the hemisphere. By foot, it’s less than ten minutes to French Leave, a mile-long crescent of pink sand that is usually deserted. Most visitors to Eleuthera rent a car during their stay, because the island is rural and spread out, and a car is the only practical way to get around. By car, Indigo House is just a minute from French Leave Beach.

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 our Indigo House, and experience all our island has to offer.

Beautiful House!!

  • 5 of 5
We stayed on Eleuthera in the Indigo House for the week of July 7 - 13. The house was lovely! The four bedrooms were spacious enough for all 8 adults plus one 8 yr old and 1 infant. The house came with a pack-n-play, so the baby had a comfortable place to sleep. The outdoor sitting areas were the highlight of this house! We thoroughly enjoyed the back terrace in the morning for our coffee and again late at night for the view. The pool was an absolute gem! Clean and warm, it got plenty of use all day long. We barely ate our meals inside, as the table in the outdoor area by the pool was big enough to fit all of us for a sit-down meal. We were only minutes by foot from the town, so if we needed something we would just take a walk down the hill and pick it up. We walked a couple of times to the French Leave Beach, but by foot it would take 15 minutes to get there, so we mostly drove and parked by the beach path. We ate at the Beach House Restaurant one night and Tippy's another night. Both have excellent food!! If you are looking for a relaxing vacation - this is the place to go!
