BRIGHT AND SUNNY DECORATED SUITE WITH DECKS AND OCEAN VIEW

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!

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!

GREAT PLACE, LOCATION, OWNERS, EVERYTHING.

  • 5 of 5
We stayed 10 days in February. Owners Kathy, Bob and Joe the dog were great throughout all of the process of booking and when we were staying (except Joe, of course, who is a dog and hasn't quite managed to understand how to use email - yet.)

We arrived after all the shops had shut, but Kathy kindly left us a huge container of water, eggs, wine, bread, a lovely veggie lasagne and some wine/beer to keep us going until the shops opened the next morning.

We had the downstairs apartment, which was spotless, well laid out, had all the facilities that were needed including a washing machine outside shared with upstairs. The best compliment to say is that all the photos were a true to how the place actually is. There's no swimming pool, but the gorgeous French Leave beach is around 15 minutes walk.

We can't drive, so couldn't hire a car. Since there's no public transport and it's a VERY long island, we knew we'd be based very close to where we were staying. It didn't prove to be a problem at all. The apartment is on top of the hill between the beach on the east side of the island and and the town of Governors Harbour on the west. The town, with its supermarket and shops, was only a 10 minutes walk down the hill or 15 minutes walk back in the 28c sunny weather. There are plenty of places to eat nearby, the Buccaneer Club became a favourite where the Kalik beer was always cold.

Overall, totally recommended and if you need a place for a few days or a few weeks in the lovely island of Eleuthera, get in touch with the owners and you will not be disappointed by anything.

EVERYTHING YOU COULD WANT ++++

  • 5 of 5
We thoroughly enjoyed our stay at Peach House and highly recommend it. Eleuthera is such a quiet island it is important that you have a comfortable place to spend evenings.
Peach house has everything you could want in a rental including 2 cold beers in the fridge. It comes with hair dryer, beach towels, beach chairs, umbrella, cooler, cooler packs….etc. The upper unit has a 3 sided deck with multiple chairs and seating options, TV, Wi-Fi and Ipod docking along a fully equipped small kitchen + laundry facilities (downstairs). I recommend renting a place with some sort of kitchen facilities solely because a lot of the restaurants are some what average and expensive.
I don’t think you could find a better equipped rental on the island plus you get visits from your vacation dog “Joe” and the owners (Kathy and Bob) live on site and are available for any concerns or questions you might have. So what Peach House doesn’t have is purified water (you need to buy bottled water for drinking). The water is from a cistern and while safe for showering and washing it’s not for drinking. The location of the Peach House is on the hill, so you get a small ocean view but it’s super quiet and sea air is fresh. We did walk into Govenor’s Harbour but you really need a car to get around the island to the beaches and sites. Highly recommend making the trip to Harbour Island and driving over the glass bridge. Favourite beach was Alabaster by the airport, better road access than Ten Bay. Renting this place was a breeze as all deposits can be made via CC (extra charge- common in the Bahamas) plus all emails and questions were promptly answered by the Eleuthera Vacation Rentals Agents Juliana and Tara. We will be back to Eleuthera and plan on staying here again.
