ROMANTIC 1800S COTTAGE W/ SPECTACULAR OCEAN VIEWS, POOL, FREE FLIGHTS

Governor's Harbour Cottage Rental Photos and Description

1 Bedroom, 1 Full Bath

Belmont Cottage is a beautifully restored and appointed 19th century cottage, perched high on a hillside with spectacular views of the Harbour and Cupid’s Cay. During the recent restoration, the original historic architecture was lovingly preserved while accommodating the needs of modern luxury living, including state-of-the-art fixtures and electronics.

Belmont Cottage consists of a master bedroom with king-size bed, a modern luxurious en-suite bathroom with extra large shower, and a living area equipped with a mini-bar and furnished with antiques. Amenities include refrigerator, microwave, flat screen TV, air conditioning, ceiling fan, and wireless internet. There is also a separate outdoor patio with a spectacular sea view. Belmont Cottage shares a pool with two other houses.

Belmont Cottage is part of the Squires Estate collection of beautifully restored 19th century homes on the hill above Governors Harbour, furnished with antiques from around the world. The décor and level of finish will delight the most discrimminating world traveler. Our manager will greet you upon arrival and be available to assist you as needed. She can arrange for daily housekeeping, a private chef, or a car rental (extra charges apply), and provide advice about island activities. Other staff at Squires Estate include a fulltime gardener and housekeepers. Laundry and ironing services are provided on the premises at no charge. Belmont Cottage can be combined with other historic homes and cottages in the Squires Estate collection for larger groups.

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, 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 over 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 10 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, Belmont Cottage is just a minute from French Leave Beach.

Free Flights: A stay of four nights or longer entitles you to two free round-trip tickets from Nassau to Eleuthera. Other promotions may also be available.

“Wonderful and Relaxing Stay!”

  • Submitted: Jul 11, 2013
  • Stayed: Apr 2013
We stayed in the Belmont Cottage and Junior Cottage for a total of 4 nights. When we first arrived, I was pleasantly pleased with the look and feel of the property. The pictures shown online were very accurate. However, I would not use the company that booked the trip (Majestic Tours) again, due to their slow response and lack of detailed information regarding my e-mail inquiries.
Before we booked our room at Belmont, we were also considering another property in Rock Sound, but decided against it due to the distance. And during that time, I had several phone conversations with a lovely booking agent named Julianna at Eleuthera Vacation Rentals.
She was extremely professional and quick to respond to my inquiries. Later, I learned that she also does the booking for Belmont Cottage, and although we had already begun the process with Majestic Tours, Julianna was the one who arranged our rental car, her assistant, Tara, gave restaurant recommendations, and Julianna gave us much better directions on how to get to our hotel, compared to the other tour company.
So, if you are looking for very nice accommodations in Eleuthera, consider Squires Estate, and Julianna as your booking agent.
BTW-Annie the property manager at Squires is also very sweet and nice.

“Beautiful and well worth renting!”

  • Submitted: Jul 11, 2013
  • Stayed: May 2013
Stayed in the Belmont Cottage at Squires Estate for four nights in May 2013. It was a beautiful location at the top of a hill in Governor's Harbour and a cute, perfectly sized cottage for two people to stay. It has gorgeous views from the porch and was a peaceful and quiet place. There were a few tenants in the lower buildings (Toad Hall), but no one else at Belmont or the other closest cottage, so it felt extremely private.

No kitchen in this particular cottage (or microwave), so be prepared to eat out - coffee and coffee maker is provided however, and there's a small fridge. That said, there's a great, simple restaurant at the bottom of the hill - the Buccanneer Club - and a yummy coffee shop on the corner as well. Got a lot of exercise walking up and down that hill, so if you're not up for that, definitely rent a car. Could walk to French Leave Beach as well, but definitely need a bit of stamina for the heat and hills on the way home.

Annie was great and waiting for us to arrive despite significant flight delays - she was extremely nice and friendly. There is no on-site support, but both the coordinators (Tara, Julianna) and Annie were accessible via email and phone as needed, and everyone checked in with us during our visit to make sure everything was going well.

Beautiful set of cottages in a wonderful location with fabulous views of Cupid's Cay and Governor's Harbour. Absolutely well worth the price and loved being there - simple, quiet, and non-intrusive like some hotel experiences. Very friendly local people!

"Home away from home"

"Home away from home"
  • Submitted: Feb 12, 2013

As an often solo traveler I try to find locations and accommodations where I won't feel singled out. As my title says, Squires Estate felt like a home away from home. The facilities are immaculately cleaned and you can tell the owner really put a lot of time and thought into every detail. The property is located right in Central Governor's Harbor, near the grocery, and a few local restaurants all within walking distance. Each building faces Cupid's Cay, and waking up to a beautiful sunrise just made each morning special.

I stayed at the Jr. Cottage. It's ideal for a solo traveler or a couple. But be forewarned there is not cooking area. I believe the larger houses do have a kitchen. Nevertheless I was able to brew my own coffee/tea and store produce and snacks in the mini fridge. There is internet access if you need to work. There are no phone lines in the Jr. cottage, so make sure to travel with your own phone.

Everyone knows everyone in Eleuthera. After a couple of days my travel became easier with a personal mode of transportation. The French Leave Beach is walking distance about 15 mins or so, but through a quiet deserted path. Having a car makes dining out a lot easier too. Not that there are many selections in the area, but the worthy ones do require a vehicle.

The property is situated on a hill so if you're doing a lot of walking be cautious. The grocery store is down the street, and the area is really quiet and serene.

Also traffic flows on the left. Good thing to know as an American driver.

Joselyn the caretaker will come in to check on you everyday. She's very friendly and very helpful. There is ample parking if you're driving from elsewhere. The airport is about 15 mins away by car.

My stay at Squires Estate was absolutely perfect. The property really is well maintained and ideal for large families, couples or solo travelers. I would love to come back in the future.

This place is just like a paradise. Overlooking the sea up on a hill it is perfectly located. It is wonderful to wake up, step outside and look at the amazing colours of nature. Our cottage was the Cottage at Belmont house. All houses are perfectly furnished and clean. You have beach towels, tv, sugar and tea, coffee, complimentary water the first day..The people taking care of this place are very kind and they are there everyday asking you if you need anything. Our cottage didn't have a kitchenette, therefore we were allowed to use the kitchen at Belmont house for a reasonable price. There are a couple of restaurants around, i can suggest Tippy's, which is on the atlantic side near the pink sand beach, just 10 minutes away.If you have a car is better because you can explore the island as you wish, and absolutely it is a safe place

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 Belmont Cottage, and experience all our island has to offer.
