Overview

Governor's Harbour Estate Rental Photos and Description

9 Bedrooms, 9 Bathrooms, Sleeps 20

The Banks Road Estate is a luxurious beachfront estate on 60 acres of landscaped grounds. It consists of two large and elegant homes, each private, but just 200 yards apart. The estate sits on 1200 feet of spectacular and private pink-sand beach. Fall asleep to the sound of the waves lapping on the shore, and awake to sunrise over the ocean. Relax in the pool or on our perfect and very swimmable beach, or snorkel the nearby coral reefs. There is excellent snorkeling right off the beach. Enjoy drinks or a meal on the broad patio overlooking the beach, or rest in the hammock. You and your guests will appreciate the luxury and total privacy of an extensive estate without a single neighbor in sight. Banks Road comes with daily housekeeping Monday through Friday. Weekend housekeeping is optional, as are private chef, masseuse, snorkeling and fishing guides, wedding/party set up, and grocery pre-stocking.The estate is located on Governors Harbour's Banks Rd., the premier location on Eleuthera.

Banks Road Estate consists of two elegant homes separated by 200 yards of lawn and garden. The Three Bedroom Villa is a dramatic, Moroccan-style estate home with 3500 square feet of living space and a private pool. It’s located just steps from the beach. The large living room features satellite TV, DVD/CD players, and plenty of room for entertaining. The adjacent study is equipped with high-speed internet, fax machine, telephone, and printer. The modern kitchen is fully equipped for you or your private chef. The master bedroom suite features a king bed and en-suite bathroom. There are two guest bedrooms, one with a queen bed and one with twin beds, with a full bath between them. The third (half) bath is located off the living room, as is the laundry room with washer and dryer. The villa has a large patio overlooking the ocean. Other amenities include AC, ceiling fans, iPod dock, safe, outdoor barbecue, beach chairs, paddle board and two double kayaks.

The Six Bedroom Villa, also located just steps from the beach, features 3 king bedrooms and 3 queen bedrooms. Each bedroom has an en-suite bathroom and a private deck or balcony. Four of the bedrooms have direct ocean views. This villa also has a full kitchen, dining area, and living room. A large furnished patio overlooks the beach and gardens. There is also a half bath off the living area and a laundry room with washer and dryer. Amenities include an Apple desktop computer, air conditioning, ceiling fans, iPod dock, safes, beach chairs, beach towels, and an outdoor shower and tub.

Tippy’s famous beachside restaurant is just 5 minutes away by car. Other nearby restaurants include The Beach House, Sky Beach Club, Cocodimama, and The Buccaneer.

The town of Governors Harbour, less than ten minutes away by car, 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.

The island of 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. The snorkeling, diving, and fishing on the island are world class. Boating, surfing, and other water sports are also popular. 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. Please make yourself at home at Banks Road Estate, and enjoy all our island has to offer.

Paradise!

  • 5 of 5
If you're looking for privacy, natural beauty, lots of space, open and airy accommodations, peace and quiet, yet still be within easy driving distance to fun activities and great restaurants - then look no further. Seven Palms has all of this and more. The house is large and sprawling. There is a main, common room in the center with a large powder room, galley kitchen, living/dining area that opens up to a huge veranda overlooking the Atlantic ocean. You can hear the surf from every room. The six bedrooms extend off two arms from the common area, 3 on one side, 3 on the other. Each bedroom has its own full bath, and everyone agreed the beds were incredibly comfortable. The house and grounds are clean and well-maintained. At this writing, the house does appear to be undergoing a few minor renovations (i.e. doors and trim throughout are all primed and ready for paint), but this did not detract from any of the comforts the estate has to offer. The beach there was long, private, simply fantastic. The agent through which we rented was amazing: attentive, responsive, friendly, courteous, helpful, and very professional. He responded immediately to every question, large or small, during our rental process and always made us feel important and respected. Our property manager at the house was just as wonderful: attentive to our every need, always available, friendly, good-humored, and accommodating. She really made us feel welcome and at home! The housekeeper and her staff were likewise accommodating - adjusting their schedules to fit ours. The grounds keepers were unobtrusive and friendly. one of them even climbed a coconut tree for us one day (barefoot!) and with machete in hand, hacked off several coconuts for us. He chopped them open and we enjoyed fresh coconut milk right there! The Pina Coladas were never fresher than they were that day. Lanny's restaurant for take away food was terrific - they cooked for 11 of us even through a brief power outage! Tippy's is famous and did not disappoint. We also bought fresh grouper right off the boat in Gov's. Harbor and grilled it on the wood-fired grill that was ready for us every evening. I wouldn't hesitate to return here and highly recommend it to anyone looking to get away from the "madding crowds."

Wonderful property in a perfect location

  • 5 of 5
We arrived with two extended families and the estate was perfect for a large group like ours.

The houses are beautiful and well-appointed. The beach on this part of the island is wonderful for playing in the surf, fishing, or beach combing.

The property is close to town and Tippy's (great restaurant / bar).

We are eager to come back..

A super estate in a great location!

  • 5 of 5
We came with two families with high school and college kids. The estate was perfect! Just far enough from town for complete solitude but just a few minutes from the best restaurants (our favorite was Tippy's).

The villas were well-constructed and well-kept; the staff was attentive and professional. The grounds are beautiful.

The pink sand beach out front is one of the best on the island.
