The home is very much as described, well maintained with filtered view of the aquamarine ocean on one side and a lagoon on the other. Very well equppped kitchen. Close ( driving ) to several Restaurants and walking to one restaurant, about one mile from Govenors Harbour. Very helpful hosts who have recommendation for car rentals .

It was literally steps away from an amazing beach! I would definitely recommend this house to everyone who wants to stay in Governors Harbour, Eleuthera.

                                                                  Owner's Response:

We very much appreciate your recommendation for our home in Governors Harbour. So many houses advertised are not actually in Governors Harbour proper and we pride ourselves on being steps away from one of the best beaches on Eleuthera and just a mile from the town and some of the best restaurants on the Island. We'd love to have you return so just let us know if and when you decide to visit Eleuthera again and we are here to help make it another great vacation!! Thank you and take care, Michele and David
