Overview

Eleuthera House Rental Photos and Description

2 bedrooms, 3 full bathrooms, sleeps 5

Belmont House sits high atop Buccanneer Hill with spectacular views of Governors Harbour, the sea, and the sunset. This grand historic home dates from the mid-1800s. It has been meticulously restored to retain its original elegance, while enjoying all modern luxuries and conveniences. Belmont House was decorated by a reknowned Italian designer. It features exquisite contemporary furnishings, many custom made, hardwood floors and high ceilings.

Belmont’s façade is dominated by its grand two-story veranda looking out across the harbor. The upstairs features two large bedrooms, each with ocean views and direct access to the veranda, and two large and luxurious full baths. One bedroom has a king bed, and the other has two twins. Relax with a cocktail on the comfortable teak furniture of the grand veranda and enjoy a spectacular, 50-mile, 180-degree ocean and sunset view. You may find it difficult to leave.

On the first floor, Belmont features a large living room and a spacious formal dining room with seating for eight. The modern, airy, peninsula kitchen is fully equipped with stainless steel appliances, including refrigerator, dishwasher, microwave, and Bosch oven. The downstairs has a third full bath and a washer and dryer. The large first-floor veranda is a delightful spot, with garden and ocean views.

Belmont House shares a beautiful new pool with two nearby cottages. Amenities at Belmont House include air conditioning, high-speed wireless internet, cable TV, hi-fi stereo, cordless telephone, and off street parking.

Belmont House is part of the Squires Estate collection of beautifully restored 19th century homes on the hill above Governors Harbour. The décor and level of finish will delight the most discriminating 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.

The Belmont House estate includes two beautiful one-bedroom cottages that can be rented along with the house for additional bedrooms. Belmont House and its cottages can also be combined with other historic homes and cottages in the Squires Estate collection for larger groups.

The town of Governors Harbour, a two-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 hemisphere. By foot, it’s less than ten minutes to French Leave, a mile-long crescent of pink sand that is usually deserted. Most visitors to Eleuthera rent a car during their stay, because the island is rural and spread out, and a car is the only practical way to get around. By car, Belmont House is just a minute from French Leave Beach.

FREE FLIGHT: A stay of four nights or longer entitles you to one free round-trip ticket from Nassau to Eleuthera or flight credits from the U.S. Some restrictions apply. THIS PROMOTION IS RUN BY THE MINISTRY OF TOURISM AND IS NOT ALWAYS AVAILABLE. Please contact us for details.

Guestbook comments from the manager

Great vacation at the wonderful Belmont house. You can't go wrong with this place which is charming and very comfortable. The size of the rooms and updated amenities such as a pool and interior decorating are perfect for this area. We will stay here again and explore even more of this wonderful Island.

Beautiful Belmont!

  • 5 of 5

Belmont was gorgeous! The views from the veranda looking over the bay have to be one of the best in Governors Harbor. The style is so tasteful and the amenities top notch. It doesn't get better than this in town.

This is how hospitality should be done everywhere.

And Annie is lovely and always available if you need anything at all!

Thank you, we will be back again!
