NEW LUXURY 3BR WITH PRIVATE POOL, WALK TO TOWN

Governor's Harbour House Rental Photos and Description

3 bedrooms, 4 bathrooms

Welcome to Sweet Corn House, a new and elegant three-bedroom, four-bath Colonial home on the hill above Governors Harbour. Sweet Corn is graced by shady, wrap-around verandas overlooking landscaped tropical gardens and a private swimming pool.

The first floor of Sweet Corn features a large and sunny open-plan living area ideal for entertaining. The great room has lounge seating for five+ and dining room seating for six. The island kitchen, with stainless steel appliances, is open to the great room and features additional bar-chair seating. There is an adjacent powder room and laundry room.

The first floor of Sweet Corn has two separate bedroom suites with full baths, one with a queen bed and one with a king bed. The king bedroom suite has a kitchenette and can be accessed from the great room or directly from the garden via a separate keyed entrance.

The second floor of Sweet Corn is devoted entirely to the master bedroom suite. This spacious suite features a luxurious modern bathroom, two private balconies, and a private sun deck with views of the Atlantic Ocean. Sweet Corn has air conditioning throughout the house, cable TV, DVD player, wifi internet, land line telephone, travel crib, and an outdoor gas grill.

Sweet Corn is one of five homes on the estate formerly owned by Sir Harold Christie, and on which his gracious Bahamian Colonial mansion still stands. Sweet Corn can be rented along with other homes on the estate to accommodate larger groups. Daily housekeeping, private chef, and other services are always available on the estate for an additional charge.

The town of Governors Harbour, a three-minute walk down the hill, 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.

Walking down the hill in the other direction takes you to French Leave Beach, the finest beach on the island and one of the great beaches of the Caribbean. By foot, it’s about 8 minutes to French Leave, a mile-long crescent of pink sand which is literally deserted most of the time. Most visitors to Eleuthera rent a car, because the island is rural and spread out, and a car is the only practical way to get around. By car, Sweet Corn House is just a minute from French Leave Beach.

SWEET CORN WAS AMAZING AND BEAUTIFUL!!!

  • 5 of 5
The Sweet Corn house was beautiful. From its design, layout,quality construction and furnishings, it was all perfect. The location was also very nice up on the hill with the breezes off the Atlantic and made us not even need the air conditioning. The pool was very nice as well, it got used a lot and the kids loved it! not to mention the adults. We would definitely consider staying here again in the future. Thanks you.

SWEET TIME AT SWEET CORN.

  • 5 of 5
Our family of 4 spent 10 days at Sweet Corn House. We have been to Eleuthera many times but this was the first time we have stayed in town. The house was great and everything was exactly as advertised on the website. The house sits on top of the hill and there is a great view of the Atlantic as well as a great breeze on the upstairs deck. The kids loved having a pool and we enjoyed the convenient location – close to town, restaurants and beaches. We could walk home from the fish fry. Because we were so centrally located, we found time to accomplish a few new things this trip. We spent a fabulous day down south at Whiteland Beach, we taught the kids how to snorkel at Ten Bay and we finally got around to visiting the Leon Levy Preserve. Bob and Kathy were great hosts. Kathy checked in every now and then to make sure we were doing well, and Bob really bailed us out on Sunday morning when our rental car decided not to start just when we needed to head to the airport. We also got to pick fresh lettuce, tomatoes, basil and other goodies from Kathy’s vegetable garden. Julianna and Tara were helpful in making reservations and also checked in during our stay to see how we were doing. I would not hesitate to recommend this property.

STUNNING HOUSE, GREAT OWNERS

  • 5 of 5
Located on a beutiful island, Sweet Corn House is exactly what the pictures show, a wonderfully designed, light and airy, modern plantation-style compound that is a joy to live in and experience. It is exceptionally clean, well-designed, with roomy individual bedrooms, a great central room perfect for entertaining and meals/TV / reading. The kitchen had everything one could want as in your own home, and all the applicances worked as one would expect.

A word must be spoken about the master suite, an incredibly welcoming, well-viewed, fresh room taking up the entire second floor of the house. The breezes, morning sunlight, afternnon sunsets made it so easy to forget about work and really know you were on vacation.

The grounds were perfectly sized, with wrap-around verandas encircling the house; a nice-sized pool to the side and ample parking for all of your guests. Sufficient chairs, towels, beach items, pool items were all available on site. It was actually hard to leave it was so comfortable.

Situated on the top of the hill, central to Governor's Harbor, it enjoys a view in all directions. The village itself is a five minute walk down the hill, and should be explored at least once. Going down the other Atlantic side toward the beautiful French Leave Beach( old Club Med site), probably closer to a ten to fifteen minute walk, which I found a tad more comfortable to drive.

There are limited but sufficient eateries and restaurants in about the island if one is choosing to stay at governor's Harbour. Some of the ones we ate at several times include: Beach House( try the shrimp dish, good fritters; lots of activity due to its key beach access location; nice bar, several nights really hopping to live music; located 1.2 miles from the house); Tippy's Bar, 2.0 miles from the house, located just a small distance further down the same Blanks Road, is slightly more upscale restaurant where the food is good, most seats are bug free, music also claims several nights; probably the most upscale near to the property; Sunset Restaurant, just a mile south of town on Queens Highway, offering nice fish dishes, a good steak and nice service; Buccaneer, a close by family bistro (don't miss the pork/chicken/beef friend rice plate), Sammy's down south, Leapin Lizard up north.

Bob/Kathy, owners, are wonderful, exceptionally birght Brits who provide the hospitality as if you are long term friends. Together they designed/built this complex. Miss them terrifically !

SWEET SUMMER AT SWEET CORN

  • 5 of 5
Really lovely house in Governor's Harbour, with a bright and clean aesthetic and it's own pool. Walking down to the harbour is easy, and a wonderful pastime especially early morning. Equally, the house is close to French Leave Beach with casual a fun spots like the Beach House, Banks Road Deli and Tippy's only a two-minute drive away. We found the location and accommodation perfect for our family,and a wonderful centrally located base from which to explore the rest of the island.

ABSOLUTELY PERFECT!

  • 5 of 5
Our family of 7 stayed in the home for a week and leaving was painful! The home met all of our expectations, Kathy, our host was amazing and friendly. Eleuthera is beautiful and the people are the friendliest you will ever find. The Friday Fish Fry was a lot of fun. Queen's Bath is gorgeous in its setting. Hopefully, someday, we will return!!

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. You can rent power boats, sailboats, sea kayaks, bikes. You can have a charter captain take you out for excursions of various types. 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 Sweet Corn House, and experience all our island has to offer.
