10-ACRE BEACHFRONT ESTATE WITH BOAT DOCK AND HEATED POOL

Governor's Harbour Estate Rental Photos and Description

5 bedrooms, 4 bathrooms, 1 half bathroom, sleeps 12

Welcome to Bonefish Bay, a private beachfront estate on ten acres with a heated oceanfront pool and a deep-water boat dock and boat ramp. Bonefish Bay is secluded, but located less than two miles from the village of Governors Harbour, with its stores, restaurants, banks, and services. Bonefish Bay has over 4000 square feet of living space, including a private guest cottage. An abundance of glass provides extensive and unobstructed beach, ocean, and sunset views from every major room. A short set of stone steps takes you down to your small and private beach, perfect for wading and swimming. The estate’s waters are teeming with marine life and offer excellent snorkeling, swimming, and fishing.

The elegant Spanish Colonial main house features a large living room with a wall of glass looking out over the ocean. The modern kitchen, with a beautiful ocean view, features granite throughout and is fully equipped with a gas range and oven, refrigerator, dishwasher, microwave, and separate laundry room with washer and dryer. The spacious kitchen has bar-chair seating for four, looking out at the ocean. There is also a large separate dining room.

The stunning master bedroom suite, furnished with a king bed, has a a private patio and a direct ocean view through a wall of glass. It is connected to a master bath where you can enjoy ocean views while you luxuriate in the jacuzzi tub or glass-enclosed shower. One guest bedroom, with queen bed, has direct ocean views; the other has a double bed and a garden view, with an indirect ocean view. The three main bedrooms have full en suite bathrooms. The fourth bedroom, a converted den, has a double bed and a half bath which also serves the living areas. The living room and dining room are also equipped with a sofa beds. The house features a separate, fully equipped office with a desk and lovely ocean views through a large sliding glass door.

If you like to take in the sea breeze or bask in the sun, you’ll love the grand patio, just off the living room, with its beautiful ocean and sunset views. The patio is elegantly furnished with a wrought-iron dining set for outdoor dining, as well as a lounge area with an outdoor sofa and chairs. It is equipped with a gas grill for outdoor cooking. The kitchen and two bedrooms have smaller private patios.

The Guest Cottage, which offers direct ocean vews from every room, is separated from the main house for extra privacy. It has a queen bed and a full bath. It also has an oceanfront patio, a particularly delightful spot. If you choose not to use the Guest Cottage, it will remain empty during your stay. It will not be rented to another guest.

The private boat dock is located beside the guest cottage. Step onto your boat and enjoy spectacular fishing, diving, and cruising on some the hemisphere’s most beautiful waters. If you don’t choose to bring your own boat, we can arrange a boat rental for you. The estate also features a full-size boat ramp and a waterfront gazebo. In addition to its private beach, Bonefish Bay has 1000’ of frontage along a private peninsula with excellent snorkeling, fishing, and exploring by land or sea.

Bonefish Bay is fully equipped with central air, high speed internet, WIFI and Ipod dock. There is a flatscreen cable TV in the living room with Apple TV and a flat-screen TV with a DVD player and Apple TV in the master bedroom. For outdoor use, there is a gas grill, beach chairs, and two sea kayaks for exploring and viewing the sealife. The house is supplied with a crib, children’s books and DVD movies, games, beach toys, and inflatable floats. Beach chairs, umbrellas, and beach towels are provided. Just bring your toothbrush and a change of clothes!

The town of Governors Harbour, a mile away, 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. 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. 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 Bonefish Bay Estate, and experience all our island has to offer.

Guestbook comments from the manager

This house, the property, the location, the planning before arrival, the

attention once we arrived and while there, and as we were leaving, is a 10+.

The home owner (Michele) and the management ( Matthew) are first rate.

Michele and Matthew are the epitome of customer service. We had a few

challenges while there ( my husband became very ill with stomach flu.

Nothing he caught while there!) and not only did Michele drive us to the

doctor, she also had his prescription brought to our house from a town an

hour or more away. Couldn't have made it without her.



This estate is beautiful, even better in person. The landscaping is STUNNING and the cove this house sits above, well WOW! There were 8 of us and if we weren't in the water ( clear ocean or great pool), on the ample deck, cooking, or off premise enjoying governors harbor or surrounding towns in some way, we were gathering and laughing in the large kitchen. We all felt very at home here and will definitely be back..........very soon!



Thank you, thank you, to you both!

Beautiful spacious house

  • 5 of 5
We had 8 of us stay in the house+2 in the guest house and there was more than enough room for everyone. The property is huge, and 2 mins drive to Governors Harbor. We enjoyed the kayaks that were provided, and the pool is was great for jumping in first thing in the morning. The property was extremely well maintained and clean. I highly recommend staying, and we will be returning.

A little taste of paradise!

  • 5 of 5
Well. Where do I start?! We simply had the best holiday ever! The house was superb. We were a party of 12, my brother's family and ours. We all were accommodated very comfortably in the bedrooms and sofabeds. It was so easy to get to Eleuthera from Nassau with 3 airlines arriving several times a day. My husband and and I stayed in the little beach house as my brother and his wife and two babies took the master suite. The beach house was like a little piece of heaven! We were away from the noisy children (ours are all grown up so relatively noiseless!) and the views from the windows which were on all the walls and bathroom, out into the bay were stunning.
The main house was so beautiful. We never felt cramped. We were so happy to have the pool too. The kids used it every day. The water in the bay was bath temperature and snorkelling and kayaking was great however there were loads of jelly fish so we kept the little kids in the pool for swimming.
We had hired a boat from Skip Miller and it was great fun to go fishing from and popping over to the shops at Governors harbour.
The air con in the main house was a God send. The house was laid out really well and there was lots of spare linen and plenty of towels. It was spotlessly clean and very well equipped. There were lots of great restaurants serving local fish and wonderful local delicacies like conch fritters. Most of the restaurants we went to were right on the beach with wonderful views. We especially liked the Beach House and Tippys.
We used the kayak a lot which was great fun! Some of us went diving at Ocean Fox diving @ Cotton Bay with the owner Al and said it was the best diving they gave ever done.
All in all we had a brilliant time and will definitely come back again.
Michele was the perfect host and we loved meeting her. We will keep in touch.
Thanks so much for everything

Owner's Response: This was an odd weather-related event. We rarely have jellyfish here or anywhere on this island.

Eleuthera treasure

  • 5 of 5
We had a wonderful stay in this amazing home. Designed with love and filled with sunlight, it's a great retreat location - for a couple or a family. My husband and I wanted to escape the urban chaos (and long winter), and this was the perfect setting. The location is very convenient - to the airport, markets, restaurants, magnificent beaches, and other excursions - yet also remote enough to feel private. The sunsets are beyond amazing. The convenience of the private dock is great for boating. The home was well-equipped with all the necessary modern conveniences, and A/C. You can wade out into the beautiful turquoise water for what feels like a mile, from the backyard. The pool is a great added bonus! And, the homeowner Michele, is very accessible, caring and helpful...she made us feel very well taken care of. We hope to return very soon.

The description of the property was spot on. The house was very roomy, comfortable and clean. The views were fantasting and the owner made us feel very welcomed. We loved the number of beutiful beaches within close proximity and the local restaurants were excellent. The Beach House and Tippy's were our favorites. I would strongly recomend this property to friends and family.

Stay at Bonefish Bay

  • 5 of 5
This was absolutely awesome!! The landscaping alone was enough to make you feel you were in paradise. Beautiful flowers, and the trunks of the trees were actually a shimmery bronze-colored! The house itself is very nicely furnished, clean, and private if you have multiple people in your group. The private beach is nice. You have your own private viewing of some of the best sunsets you'll ever see. We thoroughly enjoyed this home. Just sitting on the terrace listening to all the sounds of the island while looking at such beauty was awesome. I highly, highly recommend this house. We will be going back most definitely. The owner is super nice and provides plenty of towels, including beach towels. This house is also close to some of the nicer restaurants, including the Beach House. Cocodimama is just right down the street, and just five minutes (maybe even less) to Governor's Harbour for the infamous "fish fry!" It's also right about midpoint on the island. Plenty of beaches nearby to explore. If you're planning a trip to Governor's Harbour, look no further. We so loved it!
