LUXURY 5 BR WITH PINK SAND BEACH AND SPECTACULAR VIEWS

Governor's Harbour House Rental Photos and Description

5 bedrooms, 3 bathrooms, sleeps 8

This pristine condition five-bedroom home has constant sea breezes and ocean views in every direction. In addition to a spacious living room, 800' screened-in porch, big sun deck, and 3 bathrooms, there is a huge game/TV room and two other cozy TV and reading areas in different parts of the house.

The lower level has the big game/TV room with a multi-game table (air hockey, mini pool, etc), a full-size ping-pong table, TV, DVD player, and lots of board games. Additionally there is a large bedroom with two twin beds that can sleep four children or be pushed together for a king. This bedroom has a full en-suite bathroom.

The main floor has a gorgeous corner living/dining room with an open, 'chef's dream of a kitchen' that is fully stocked and has 4 bar stools. There are five French doors leading out to the huge screened porch. The indoor dining table seats 8 and the outdoor dining area can seat 12 plus.

Off the screened porch is a vast sundeck with a full-size gas grill and breathtaking views. Also on the second floor is a master-size bedroom with king bed, washer/dryer closet, and a full bathroom off the hall.

The top floor has three bedrooms all with fabulous ocean views. (One queen, one king, and the third with two double beds.) The top floor also has a full bathroom, a computer desk, WIFI, and sitting area with a small TV and VHS player.

'Bahama Mama' is located in a charming community of only seven other stone houses. Wykee Estates was built in the 1940's for the first Premier of the Bahamas as a holiday retreat for his family and staff. Our house is the only home built more recently. It was totally renovated 5 years ago and redecorated just this year.

Wykee Estates has a gorgeous saline pool (very low chlorine) that we share with the other residents, but surprisingly is rarely used. The beach is magical!!

You will probably be the only people not only at the pool but on the gorgeous pink sand Atlantic beach as well. Both the pool and beach are just a few minute walk from the house or a 30-second golf cart ride (two golf carts come with the house).

We are in a great location just five minutes by car from the town of Governor's Harbour and eight minutes from the GHB airport. You can also walk five minutes or take the golf cart down the beach to the Sky Beach Club with its excellent restaurant, spectacular views and infinity pool with swim-up cocktail bar.

We have beautiful landscaping, mature fruit trees, hammocks, swings and tether ball.

The island is totally kicked back and relaxed. Leave your high heels at home along with your makeup... I don't even wear shoes to dinner. The adults can eat at several great beachfront restaurants while the kids run on the beach and play just steps away from your table.

The town of Governors Harbour has a charming collection of 19th century homes and churches overlooking its historic harbor. where you can buy fresh fish and lobster most afternoons from the local fishermen. 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 residents of Eleuthera are so warm and friendly and the island is very safe.

Guestbook comments from the manager

Hi! I just have one question: are you kidding us with this house?? Its unbelievably perfect...better than the pics and we are so so happy....I cannot get over every single detail that was paid attention to and the pool and the beach and the rooms ....wow!! Just everything is absolutely perfect.

My family and I are over the moon to be here and we did some grocery shopping today in hopes of not having to even venture back out for awhile....We had an amazing time at Sweet Corn last year, but this....we feel like we hit the Jackpot....My husband,who in the 20 years that we have been taking an annual vacation together Never, ever unpacks and lives out of his suitcase, immediately felt at home and (much to my fascination) unpacked and made himself at home right away..Love Love Love this home, and am delighted beyond words. My children are currenty playing pool and hanging in the rec room...thank again so much for all! we took the golf cart to the pool and the beach a while ago and just wanted to know about the Jeep...is it available as well to take a ride? Its so cute....we have a Rubicon back home and we love it so much we are going to buy it when the lease is up....Thanks again for all...this is true paradise....

My family and I had the most amazing time! We literally woke up on our last day and the first thing we all said was "I dont want to leave!" The house, the beach, the pool, the boat outing with Julius and the horseback trail and beach ride at Oceanview Farms....it was beyond description how much we all enjoyed ourselves. It was so delicious to relax in the sand and poolside, but also to have the many options available to experience mini adventures! I will be careful with my enthusiasm, though, because we selfishly want to keep Eleuthera to ourselves! Denise at Banks Deli (which is a treasure in itself) made and delivered a few pizzas one evening and a vanilla rum cake that my husband and I guiltlessly enjoyed (it was worthy of Happy Tears, it was sooo good) I had run miles in the breathtaking trails that run parallel with the beach that morning, so I earned my pizza and rum cake!! We are very much intending on returning next year as a family, and my husband and I would like to find a smaller rental so we can return just the two of us before next winter....we just simply have fallen in love with the island!

Thanks so much again for everything and be well!

Must go Back!

  • 4 of 5
We arrived around 12:30 in the afternoon and the drive to the property from the airport was an easy 10 min or so. As we entered the development we were wowed! When we entered the driveway to our property we were super wowed!
Since we arrived early the Housekeeper was still there. We had no problem hanging out and looking around. We were invited in, so we of course couldn't wait to see inside. It was wonderful from the start.
Our location was great. Our view was amazing from every part of the house. The deck with all of the fans was great to hang out on for meals or just relaxing and reading a good book(loved the Vanity Fair book). All of the bedrooms were a good size. The only thing missing was a TV in each room, which would have been nice when retiring for the evening. The kitchen was well equipped with everything we needed including 2 dishwashers! There was plenty of dining space for all 8 of us + our 2 yr old granddaughter, who also loved all the activity/sticker books in the downstairs. The basement had a bedroom, TV, ping pong and mini pool game. The refrigerator was well equipped with plenty of beverages, especially some nice wines which we enjoyed with dinner. Each bedroom had its own AC, which could be adjusted by each occupant. The outdoor shower ROCKS! I don't suggest using it in the evening, too many bugs. The house is also great for animal and crazy insect entertainment.
The house was big enough that we weren't walking in to each other and we could have privacy when needed. It was well decorated and very bright! The beds and pillows were perfect and comfortable. We especially like how neutral we were. We were able to hit a few nice restaurants and several of the beautiful beaches.
We had 2 golf carts which really helped to get us around, especially when we wanted to explore the trails. The Sky Bar is just down the road with the BEST drinks made by a super nice bartender "Sam". There is 2 pools. One which belonged to the Sky Bar (infinity pool). The other was the community pool. No one was ever in it. The seagulls and really cool birds loved sitting around it. It was always kept clean and it was very refreshing.

Beautiful home and location

  • 5 of 5
I returned with my family of 6 last weekend (16, 6, 6, and 4). The pictures don't do a justice to the house. The view is amazing and the home is updated, clean, and has everything you need (from bug spray to cooking supplies). Ann really made our stay fantastic by providing a tell all book of things to do in Eleuthera. My kids learned Yoga on the porch! Bring lots of cash with you if you plan on going as everything is 3x the normal price of the US and most places don't take credit cards. Rent a car for the week but don't expect luxury as it's an Island. We enjoyed day trips but most of all using the golf carts to go to the beach and Sky Beach Club (whose Pina Coladas are AMAZING!) I don't think I would go back with my children. They were too young and wanted to be entertained. Ann did have an enormous supply of toys inside and out for the kids to play with making our stay very comfortable. I would definitely go back with my husband!!!

Experience tranquil luxury @ Bahama Mamma

  • 5 of 5
We had a FANTASTIC time at the house and absolutely LOVED Eleuthera. The house was fantastic and we loved waking up every morning and sitting on the deck looking out at the ocean, catching rays during the day or sitting on the deck at night watching the stars. We LOVED the decor, the fact that the upstairs bedrooms had the most spectacular views (and cross-breeze) and just the overall flow/feel of the house. We were a group of 7 + 1 baby and had tons of room to be together and also to be by ourselves and veg or read on the porch, sit downstairs and watch tv, do a craft etc... We cooked most meals at home and found absolutely everything we needed in terms of cutlery, serveware, glasses, platters etc. The golf cart, tubes, beach towels, pool toys and fins/snorkels were great!!!

Overall we had a great time exploring the island, the beaches, grabbing fresh fish and lobster from the dock in Tarpum Bay (the spiny lobsters were HUGE) AND going to Island Farm (which was our one of our favorite stores--produce, bread, homemade food was delish)!! We loved seeing the glass window bridge (and got soaked which was cool) and almost ran out of gas going to Lighthouse Beach (but we made it and) and oh was it worth it!! We sailed one day in Bottom Harbor and spent the day snorkelling and puttering around man island. And one of our favorite days was spent at Wkyee Estates Atlantic Beach tubing, rafting, swimming and of course lounging and enjoying 1 or 2 Kaliks!!!
We joked that our most stressful moment was trying to figure out what to wear the one night we went out to dinner at Tippy's- loved the simplicity, the beauty and the warmth of the island. Thanks for making our vacation so memorable- We will definitely be back!!

Bahama Mama House, Eleuthera

  • 5 of 5
Our stay at the Bahama Mama house was nothing short of magical. When we arrived at the house, we were greeted by Linda, the housekeeper who was just about finished cleaning the house from top to bottom--it was spotless (and even more breathtaking than the photos). The views were unbelievable. We arrived 4 hours prior to check-in so we were very pleased to find that the house was nearly ready for us and Linda greeted us with a smile. She allowed us to unload the groceries and frozen meat we bought into the fridge and freezer so that it wouldn't go bad while she finished up cleaning.

The pool was nearly empty all week and the staff at Wykee Estates did a good job of ensuring it was always clean. The beach was also fabulous with a long stretch of pink sand and some good waves for body surfing.

The house was fully equipped with everything we needed including plenty of dishes, cutlery, wine glasses, cups and mugs and TWO dishwashers! The cupboards are stocked with towels, TP & PT, and a medicine cabinet with meds, bug spray, sunscreen (we brought our own). The bugs weren't a problem because the entire wrap-around porch is screened-in. What an amazing place to sit and read, enjoy a Kalik beer, or an afternoon nap.

All of the bedrooms are quite large and have AC units that kept us cool at night. Beds were very comfortable.

We had a ball with the games room in the basement and had a Table Tennis tournament going all week. The garage is fully stocked with beach chairs, boogey boards and snorkle gear, along with two golf carts (one was out of order while we were there) to get to and from the beach/pool which were just a few hundred meters away.

We cooked at the house 1/2 the time, and enjoyed some great meals out the other 1/2 at Tippy's, Cocodimama, The Beach House, the Fish Fry, and a trip to Harbour Island. There are some great jumping cliffs across the street from Wykee Estates that we discovered on the last day, and the island is just full of breathtaking beaches and scenery.

We rented two cars for the 9 of us which was perfect to get around the island & we did a charter fishing/snorkling trip which was very memorable.

We had an absolutely fabulous vacation at the Bahama Mama house and would highly recommend it to anyone. Eleuthera is truly an untouched paradise and the people were so kind and welcoming. Hands down, the best vacation we've ever had!

Amazing House in Beautiful Eluthera

  • 5 of 5
My family and I just got back from this amazing house! Extremely well kept up. The beach is an amazing pink sand with few to no people to be seen. Have stayed on the island before and this is my choice for the foreseeable future. House has something for everyone. My kids loved playing tetherball and the outdoor shower. Dream vacation for sure. If you are looking to unwind big time and just really enjoy life you need not look any further. Bahama Mamma is for you.
