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 sandy beach, perfect for 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 en suite bathrooms. The fourth bedroom is a den with a sofa bed and a half bath. 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, Ipod dock, and one flatscreen cable TV in the living room and one flat-screen TV with a DVD player and no cable 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.

Beautiful spacious house

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!

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

"Bonefish Bay is an exquisite home..."

  • Submitted: Jul 23, 2013

The island of Eleuthera is a magnificent place to go and relax and enjoy the peace and quite. Bonefish Bay is an exquisite home with all the features we could want in a rental home, we felt like we were in our own home by the end of the first day. The pool was a great feature especially for our grand kids (ages 3 and 1) after a day at the beach. We toured all of the wonderful beaches only minutes from the house, with a van we rented from Tracy, it fit our needs perfectly. The town of Governors Harbor is quaint and has just enough amenities to keep us satisfied. We were a family of 6 adults and 2 children and the house and cottage were just perfect. We loved the birds and the lizards keeping us company outside everyday. The sunsets are amazing and we sat on the deck every night to watch them. We went on a fishing trip with Paul and had a great time, brought home dinner for the night as well. We went to the Farm to get fresh vegetables and great salsa, and we shopped at the local stores for tourist items to take back home. None of us wanted to leave and we will definitely be back. Thank you Mathew for helping us choose this great home and thank you Michelle for making us feel at home and being there for anything we needed.

Eleuthera treasure

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.
