Richview is a new, luxurious, 4-bedroom, 4-bath home fifty yards from world-famous French Leave Beach, one of the most beautiful beaches in the Bahamas. Richview has spectacular views of the beach and ocean. It is located on the historic Banks Road, the premier location on Eleuthera, a mile from the town of Governors Harbour. Tippy's beach restaurant is less than a mile away. Richview has a beautiful new pool. The pool can be heated if desired for a fee of $300/week.
Richview is a stunning mix of old-world charm and modern comforts. Amenities include two full-service kitchens (ideal for groups with multiple families), air conditioning, washer/dryer, WIFI, satellite television, three flat-screen TVs, DVD player with video library, VOIP phone with free unlimited local and international calls, CD sound system, child and adult games, a telescope, paddle boards, a full-capacity generator, and a caretaker on duty.
Richview includes a two-story, three-bedroom main house with an attached honeymoon suite, for that couple in your group who desire extra privacy. Each section contains its own well-stocked, full-service kitchen. The two sections of the house are ALWAYS rented together, to only one group at a time, so your privacy is assured. (The Honeymoon Suite is included for an additional charge. For smaller groups who don't need a fourth bedroom, the Honeymoon Suite is simply locked off unless requested. For groups of more than 8 we have two rollaway beds. An additional charge applies for extra guests in excess of 8.)
Richview offers great outdoor living space with a huge wrap-around deck with loungers, a charcoal grill, outdoor dining area, two outdoor showers, a pergola for shade, and an observation deck with spectacular 360-degree views.
You enter Richview into the large Front Hall. This spacious room has a couch, access to the washer/dryer, and sliders to the rear deck. To your right is the computer room (with wifi and VOIP phone) and access to the two first-floor bedrooms. One has a king bed and the other two twins that can be converted to a king.
Returning to the Front Hall, you take the steps to the second floor. Here we have a full kitchen, large dining area, living room (all with BEAUTIFUL beach and ocean views) and a separate queen size bedroom and full bathroom. Off this area, you can enter the sundeck and observation deck. The views from the deck are truly spectacular. The ocean is 50 yards away and you can see 360 degrees of Eleuthera.
Returning to the first floor Front Hall, on your left is the entrance to the one-story Honeymoon Suite with a king-size bed, living room, its own full kitchen, and a large shower/bathroom. All four bedrooms at Richview have private en-suite bathrooms.
Just walk across the street and down our private path, and you’re on the beautiful pink sand of French Leave Beach (also known as Club Med Beach, for the Club Med that was located there many years ago). There is excellent snorkeling off the southern end of this beach, a minute or two walk from the private path.
Richview comes with everything you need to enjoy our beautiful beach, including beach chairs and umbrellas, and two outdoor showers.
