RESTORED HISTORIC BEACH VILLA WITH POOL AND SPECTACULAR VIEWS

Governor's Harbour Estate Rental Photos and Description

3 Bedrooms, 4 Bathrooms, Sleeps 7

This beautifully restored and modernized estate home of the late Sir Roland Symonette, first Premier of the Bahamas, retains its original elegance while enjoying modern comforts and conveniences. Hearts Ease, as Sir Roland named it, sits on a hill above a beautiful pink-sand beach. Hearts Ease enjoys spectacular 50-mile, 180-degree views of the beach and ocean below. It’s a short 100-yard walk down the hill to the beach.

At the entrance of the villa, you are greeted by three sets of French doors that open into an expansive Great Room looking out upon the ocean. The 16 foot ceilings, lovingly restored paneled walls, fireplace, and antique chandeliers combine with the views to make a stunning first impression. To the right is the Master Bedroom with private deck, large en suite bath and queen-size canopy bed, a spacious and delightful room.

To the left of the Great Room is the kitchen, fully equipped with stainless steel appliances, granite counter tops, and sliding glass doors to the patio. In addition to the Master Suite, Hearts Ease has two guest bedrooms, each with an en suite bathroom. Each guest bedroom has access to a private outdoor sitting area, closet, and queen bed. Hearts Ease has a powder room convenient to the Great Room, and a large and fully equipped laundry room with washer and dryer.

At the back of the house overlooking the ocean is a fully equipped outdoor bar and kitchen, complete with gas grill and outdoor dining area. The extensive outdoor living space also includes a large screened porch, a beautiful low-walled patio of the same size, and a rooftop deck, all with spectacular ocean views. After a day on the beach, enjoy our private outdoor shower. Heart Ease is beautifully landscaped with tropical flowers, palm trees, and fruit and nut trees.

Description continued: Hearts Ease is just 50 yards from a large and lovely pool shared with several other homes. Just past it is our pink sand beach. A short walk down the beach takes you to Sky Beach Club's excellent restaurant and bar, which has poolside service all day long. Other nearby fine dining includes Cocodimama, five minutes by car, and Tippys, 10 minutes away. The picturesque town of Governors Harbour, less then three miles away, has 19th century homes and churches, grocery stores, banks with ATMs, gift shops, liquor stores, dive shop, bakery, restaurants, and a restored historic library.

Hearts Ease is fully equipped to make your stay as comfortable as possible. Amenities include air conditioning, WIFI, landline phone, satellite TV, DVD player with video library, stereo system with CD player, video games, library of books, board games, children’s toys, beach chairs, beach towels, and snorkel gear. We have also ordered a pack and play crib, high chair, and an all-terrain stroller.

Come relax and find peace at Hearts Ease, just as Sir Roland would have wished for you.

Hearts Ease was lovely. We had a wonderful vacation. The house had everything we needed, was located above a pristine beach and next to the Sky Beach Club where we enjoyed delicious food and drinks. Sammy, the bartender, kept us entertained. Long walks on the beach were relaxing and the views breathtaking. Brenda and Billy welcomed us, recommended restaurants, snorkeling beaches, and made sure we had everything we needed. Our visit couldn't have been better.

I use to live in that house! We lived there for 3 years back in the 70's when my Dad worked for Pan Am on the Air Force Base. The house was beautiful then and it's even more beautiful now! I miss the Island life so much. I hope one day I can come back to Eleuthera and stay at Hearts Ease again. The pictures bring back great memories and made me shed a few tears.

a gorgeous villa on the hill with panoramic views of the ocean from livingroom, kitchen and 2 bedrooms.
The pool is not private, however we had 2 other families staying in the compound at same time and never overlapped on pool time. The only problem is there is no fridge etc by the pool so you'll have to keep running back to the house which is a short but steep uphill walk to get cold refreshments. Love the design and features of the house, we'll definately be coming back.

We booked Hearts Ease through Matthew Simon. We had never visited Eleuthera and Matthew was awesome to answer any of the many questions we had prior to arrival, he could not have been more helpful!

When we arrived we were greeted by Brenda at the house and she was so friendly and showed us all around and gave directions to the grocery store, etc. The house was amazing! It is so beautiful! We spent our mornings drinking coffee on the screened porch and nights laying in the hammock looking at the stars! The yard was full of lizards which was heaven for my 8 year old son! It was nice for him to have an actual yard to play in. We had fresh coconut off the trees in the yard. The views from the house are amazing! We had the pool to ourselves most of the time and if not, there was one other family there. We never had to share "our beach" with anyone although alot of our time was spent snorkling on the Carribean side.

We visited several beaches while we were there, each one was amazing and we had most to ourselves . We went fishing one day with Paul Perry which was definatly a highlight of the trip and would definatly recommend. We really enjoyed the Friday night fishfry. We ate at several restaurants and would say Buccaneers and Sunset Inn very good. We thought Tippy's was overpriced. Plan to wait a while when you go eat, remember they are on island time!

Thanks Matthew and Brenda for all your help and for making this a vacation we will always remember! We can't say enough great things about Hearts Ease and Eleuthera! We are already planning a return visit!
