STYLISH AND LAVISHLY APPOINTED BEACH HOUSE AT CLUB MED BEACH

Governor's Harbour Estate Rental Photos and Description

6 Bedrooms, 5 Full Bathrooms, Sleeps 12

Welcome to Alfred House, a new, luxurious, and secluded beachfront estate on the north end of world-famous French Leave Beach (formerly Club Med Beach). There are no houses between this house and the mile-long beach of pink sand where a Club Med once stood, the most sought-after beach location on Eleuthera. The ocean is turquoise, shallow, and historically safe, having served Club Med well for many years. Enjoy thousands of feet of deserted beachfront, extensive ocean views from every major room, and the sound and smell of the ocean from everywhere.

Alfred House is a newly constructed, 4000-square-foot, 5-bedroom Bahamian Colonial home plus one-bedroom guest cottage, located just 50 feet from the beach. The house was designed and decorated to reflect the laid back feeling of the cabanas at the Bitter End Yacht Club, Virgin Gorda. Both the upstairs and downstairs of Alfred House have a wall of glass french windows, so as you move through the house, you see the sea at every turn. The house is furnished with distressed Indian teak antiques and custom pieces made of teak, mango, & cherry woods, and black and white photographs of movie icons.

Downstairs, Alfred House features a vast great room that looks out through a wall of glass french doors at the beach and ocean. The open-plan kitchen faces the ocean, and features custom wooden white shelving with Mexican shell encrusted stone countertops. Appliances are stainless steel. The kitchen island is capped with a ten-foot teak counter with matching teak bar stools.

There are Honduran hardwood floors, cypress cedar ceilings, marble and slate tile, and mini-split air conditioning units. The upstairs features a huge media room overlooking the sea, along with four bedrooms, with a fifth bedroom downstairs. Four of the bedrooms have ocean views. The fifth has a hill/sunset view. Three large bedrooms have king beds; the two smaller bedrooms have two twin beds in each. The three king suites have ensuite bathrooms. There is a powder/shower room downstairs.

The upstairs sun deck, with its grand row of honduran mahogany shutters, runs the length of the house (60 ft), with miles of beach and ocean views. It is furnished with comfortable white lounge chairs. Beneath it is a covered terrace, a shady spot for enjoying the sea breeze and the sound of the ocean. The floor of the terrace contains a lovely mosaic of a conch made by a local island artist.

Alfred's guest cottage, called Med Point, is perched right on the edge of the ocean with a huge 1100-square-foot teak wrap-around deck. The cottage is available for an additional charge (see Rates for details). If you don't require use of the guest cottage, it will be left empty. We will not rent it to anyone else.

Amenities at Alfred House include full AC, a large flat-screen TV with DVD in the media room, high-speed internet with WIFI. The house does not have cable or satellite TV.

Alfred House is surrounded by over 20 acres of secluded wild nature, full of casuarina trees, coconut palms, giant cacti, sea grape and lettuce, even though we are only a mile or so from town. (See the aerial view). Explore French Leave Beach, and see the ruins of the old Club Med, which was swept away by a hurricane. The grounds and gardens of Alfred House have palms, palmettos, cacti, hibiscus, and oleander. We have a beautiful copper coloured coral garden off the Med Point deck, on which geckos sun themselves, and which has a natural blowhole that spouts water 30 feet on windy days. There is excellent snorkeling right off our property.

WALK 20 MINUTES INTO TOWN, through Club Med Beach, and buy lobster or grouper, freshly caught every day around 2 pm. The local fishermen will clean the fish for you, and provide only lobster tails, if you wish.

A 15 minute walk down the beach from Alfred House will take you to the beautiful Beach House Restaurant, where you can enjoy tapas and drinks on the large beachfront deck. The famous bar/restaurant Tippy's is just two miles away, and you can drive through Club Med beachfront to reach it. A 20 minute walk (or 5 minute drive) in the other direction takes you to Sky Beach Bistro, another great beachfront restaurant and pool bar.

Guestbook comments from the manager
Your home is beautiful and we loved everything about Eleuthera and our stay at Alfred House. It was the perfect spot to relax and a wonderful place to come home to after our many adventures in and around the island. Your welcome letter and tips were so helpful. My children said Eleuthera is one of their very favorite places we've ever visited (and we travel quite a bit). We all hope we can return one day soon! Many thanks again!

ELEUTHERA PARADISE

  • 4 of 5
This a beautiful home in an ideal location - five minutes to Gov. Harbour. Situated on two pristine beaches that have a completely "private" feel, even during the height of Spring Break travel. The caretaker, Christine, was very helpful and attentive, and the owner and her agents were very responsive to the small issues that arose during our visit. Can't wait to return.

ELEUTHRA'S BEST!

Eleuthra's Best!
  • 5 of 5
We have rented homes in Eleuthra several times, but I have to say that Alfred House exceeded our every expectation. The view of the beach and ocean from the house is nothing short of spectacular! The furnishings are first-class and the second story deck was a wonderful place to get some afternoon sun.

The caretaker of Alfred House met us at the Governor's Harbour airport and helped us get settled in. She checked in on us during the week and was only a phone call away.

If you want luxury accommodations, the most beautiful beaches on the island, privacy yet being close to stores and restaurants, you can't find a better place than Alfred House. We will certainly be back.

THIS IS ONE OF THE NICEST PROPERTIES ON ELEUTHERA!

  • 5 of 5
This is undoubtedly one of the nicest properties on the island. Large 5 BR + 2 LR stately house but feels like home since the furnishings and decor are very inviting and relaxing. All of this with spectacular views and steps to the most beautiful and private beaches one can imagine. If I could rate higher than 5 stars I certainly would as this beautiful home exceeded all of my high expectations!

BEYOND EXPECTATION

  • 5 of 5
Rarely are our expectations set so highly by web images, only to be exceeded when we arrive at our destination. Alfred House was everything we could have hoped.
It easily sleeps 10 people, with 3 double bedrooms, 2 twins and 4 bathrooms, 3 of which are en suite. Being so close to Governor's Harbour gave easy access to groceries, petrol and more restaurants than we could choose from. There are three beaches within reach of the house, and the closest only a few paces from the house, and all had excellent snorkeling.
We flew into Governor's Harbour thinking that we needed to be close, but having explored the island we would also now fly into North Eleuthera which has service from Miami and Fort Lauderdale and is only an hours drive down the Queen's Highway to the house.
We shopped for supplies at Eleuthera Supply which is close to the house and also sells petrol. This is cash only, but as with all the island they take USD interchangeably with BHD.
We ate at the following places. All accepted credit cards. As a tip always ask what they have fresh because you can end up with some really great surprises!
Tippys - probably the best food but a bit snooty.
Sunset Inn - more basic, but good all the same. Go there at sunset!
Beach House - great location and only a walk away. Expensive for what it was.
Sky Beach Club - still a lot of construction but the food was very good and mid-priced.
Don't be afraid to talk to the fishermen at the jetty behind the Methodist church when they return mid-afternoon. We had fresh lobster, red snapper and grouper for very little money relative to the restaurant prices.

We will definitely return!

EXTRAORDINARY PROPERTY - 5 STARS

  • 5 of 5
I was looking for privacy, location and amenities that would make my Eluthera experience amazing... and which I found in the property of the Alfred House and the guest cottage, Med Point, both of which are located in Governors Harbour.

Turquoise water and miles of sand beach surrounded this exceptional estate, which is beautifully maintained inside and out. Rarely do you see a property of this quality as a vacation rental. We felt like guests in a private home. We will be back.

Highly recommended.

ALFRED HOUSE JUNE 2012

  • 5 of 5
Fantastic week spent in the Alfred house on Med Point. Everything was just as wonderful as we anticipated. Our flights with US Air and Pineapple were all on time. Our stay was tremendously aided by Carol Davis who greeted us on arrival and readily answered our questions concerning the house as well as where to get food, beverages, and any other items we needed for our week stay. Perhaps the most important thing she did was to arrange for the two wonderful Bahamian chefs to prepare three of the best meals we had on the island. Grouper, shrimp, stone crab, conch and fresh local veggies were all five star. The house was well appointed with most of the bath, kitchen, and beach necessities. We all enjoyed the spectacular views and the nearly private beaches all to ourselves. We will definitely return!!

Alfred House is set on a point between 2 beautiful beaches: Club Med Beach, which is shallow and safe and superb for snorkelling, and boogie boarding, and Casuarina Beach, which is 1000 feet from Twin Cove Beach, which has the finest snorkelling in town. The town of Governors Harbour, less than a mile away, is an easy and pleasant walk along the beach, and up a small hill. Snorkel and swim off our wide pink sand beach, then shower in our garden.Alfred House is on a point between Club Med Beach (French Leave) and Casuarina Beach, so you have your choice of 2 beaches to step onto. 1000 feet up the beach is Twin Cove Beach which has the finest snorkeling in Governors Harbour. Our beaches are shallow, and historically safe, protected by a large reef system. The water is among the clearest in the world. Walk half a mile to THE BEACH HOUSE RESTAURANT, for tapas and live music on the beach. Sky Beach Bar is about 2 miles away along the beach. On Casuarina Beach, turtles nest at night, because it is so gloriously unspoiled. There is a SUPERB SANDY JOGGING PATH extending north and south, along our beach, which is by times shrouded in foliage, and by times open to vistas of the ocean, on the old Banks Road, which is far more secluded and rustic than Banks Road on the south. One of the loveliest drives on the whole island, is the drive north, from Alfred House, to Knowles Drive, along the water, on the Old Banks Road. There is a youtube video on this. You will brush palm trees and sea grape, and see rare birds and hear the crickets sing. This is Club Med Solo. Set up your iPod and do yoga on the deck as the sun rises over the Atlantic
