Overview

Governor's Harbour Apartment Rental Photos and Description

One Bedrom, 1 and 1/2 Baths

This sunny suite on landscaped grounds is located on the hilltop above Governors Harbour, in a small community of homes called Governor’s Estate. Stroll down the hill to the shops and restaurants of town, or buy fresh fish and lobster from the town dock. An 8-minute walk in the other direction takes you to French Leave Beach, the most beautiful beach on the island. Walk for miles along this sandy shore, snorkel in the gin-clear waters, and enjoy a meal or a cocktail at the beachside Beach House restaurant. If you prefer, stay at home at Peach House and sunbathe on your expansive deck with views of the ocean.

Peach House has a bright and sunny, open-plan living and dining area with French doors to a large deck. The spacious master bedroom, which also has French doors to a deck, has an en suite bathroom with walk-in shower. There is an additional half-bath off the living room.

The kitchen is fully equipped and supplied. Kitchen appliances include a glass-topped electric range and oven, full-size refrigerator, microwave, dishwasher, toaster, and blender.

The apartment has access a laundry room with washer and dryer, shared with the downstairs apartment. Peach House is fully air-conditioned and equipped with IPOD docks, WIFI, and satellite TV with DVD.

French Leave Beach, walking distance from the house, is an idyllic, mile-long, crescent-shaped, pink-sand beach. There are only half a dozen houses on the entire length of this spectacular beach, among the most famous in the Bahamas. The surf is very mild, protected by a large reef system that parallels the shore. The water on French Leave Beach is literally crystal clear: with no rivers or streams on the island, Eleuthera’s seas are free of sediment and among the clearest in the world.

The town of Governors Harbour, at the bottom of the hill, has a charming collection of 19th century homes and churches overlooking its historic harbor. The recently restored Haynes Library, which dates from 1897, hosts a 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.

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.

Guestbook comments from the manager

we had a great time on Eleuthera and we loved Kathy and Bob place, we felt like at home, nothing missing, everything practical and clean, so nice and comfortable, the deck all around the apartment is great we could spend a lot of time outside because we could choose the sunniest spot or the less windy.... she really thought about everything for her tenants....

We think that their location on top of the hill at Governor Harbor is the best after exploring the all island... we loved it there!

They gave us very good tips at the beginning of our vacation to find grocery stores, restaurants and the best beaches.... they were there for us!

Amazing honeymoon

  • 5 of 5

Kathy and Bob were fantastic! We stayed at the upstairs apartment of the Peach House and fell in love. The house has everything you need for a great vacation and the location is perfect. You can explore the island and visit all the amazing beaches Eleuthera has to offer. We hope to make it back to the island again someday and we will definitely stay with Kathy & Bob.

A wonderful week in Governor's Harbour

  • 5 of 5

My wife and I had a wonderful time at Peach House. The apartment was exactly as described, and Kathy was very attentive and did everything to make our stay comfortable. The location is ideal, with access to shops, businesses and restaurants just down the hill. Kathy put us in touch with Elliot ("Biggie") who rented us a 4WD vehicle in good shape, and we tooled around the island with no issues. If we return to Eleuthera, we will want to stay at Peach House again!

Perfect stay on Eleuthera

  • 5 of 5

We had a perfect week in the upstairs apartment of the Peach House.

Kathy welcomed us with some home made lasagna and some cold beers so that we didn't have to find something to eat the first night.

She was also very helpful and gave us some great tips for the island.

The apartment is very nice and has everything you need. The apartment is fully equipped and even has an AC.

We had a great time!

Wonderful home with all amenities!

  • 5 of 5

We could not have been happier with our stay at Sweet Corn! The home was incredible! This is definitely a 5 star property and our stay was the same. And the managment team could simply not be better!

Reasons for the five star review-

-Perfect location near shopping, restaraunts, beautiful beach, and the main highway

-Personal pool!

-Extremely helpful management staff. My questions over email were answered extremely quickly and kindly. My wife was sick on the trip and they rushed out to get her Gatorade and checked up on her throughout the day.

-We were able to borrow a cell phone which made driving around the island alone more comfortable

-Really comfortable beds

-Well stocked kitchen kitchen with plenty f appliances

-Fans and individual AC units

-Three balconies!

Peach Perfection!

  • 5 of 5

From Marrakech to Booth Bay Harbor, Peach Cottage is one of the most charming places I have every stayed and the owners, Bob and Kathy, are responsive, efficient and delightful.

The room lay-outs flow, the views of the Atlantic peeking through the garden's lush plantings are dreamy, the soft breezes refresh and it has a bed that even this princess finds super comfortable.

I never wanted to leave, and neither will you.

The BEST again! Thanks Kathy and Bob...

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I toured Peach House when we stayed at Tops House in December 2013. We decided that it would be a perfect accommodation for me to stay alone. Once again, I had no qualms about wiring a rental deposit in advance. To any traveler who is advised not to do so: you can be assured that the Colemans are legitimate and trustworthy. Once you actually meet them, see their houses and facilities, you will agree!

I rented Peach House upstairs with its wrap around deck and 360 views in March 2014. You can see a bit of the harbor and ocean, sunrise and sunset through many windows and french doors that render the apartment light and airy. Magnificent! And, you can hear the rushing tide in the distance. I enjoyed being at tree top level and feeling the breeze and wind, watching and hearing the birds, seeing butterflies.

The king bed is a treat...most comfortable. There is sufficient room for two to be sure, but I enjoyed having the space all to myself! Everything is spotless, in working order and all that one needs. Kathy consistently provides special attention to her guests. She and Bob, her husband, are terrific hosts; Joe Louis a faithful visitor. For those who may consider staying at any of the Coleman's houses, Tops, Corn or Yellow, they are spectacular!

My visit also included riding at Oceanview Farm where Angela and Kelley are terrific guides along the beach and through trails. I toured the Leon Levy Plant Preserve for a few hours and met staff there who really know their horticultural and geological history. The guys down at the dock sold me nice lobster tails that made for many meals along with fresh greens from Kathy's garden. And then of course, there was tea at the library where I met more wonderful residents who shared their lives with me. Lunch and dinner at Tippy's was excellent, and Elliott's smiling face a warm welcome back. Again, Victor, from Big E's (Elliott Rolle) car rental provided excellent service. Thanks to Julianna and Tara at eleutheravacationrentals.net for their efficient handling of arrangements.

Lastly, the sun, sand, surf and and turquoise waters make the day and beckon my return!
