Cleartide Guest Cottage sits in its own private garden on the beautifully landscaped grounds of a waterfront property right in Governor’s Harbour. A small beach on the harbor is a 2 minute walk from the house. A 15 minute walk (or 2 minute drive) takes you to famous French Leave Beach, a mile-long crescent of pink sand which has been ranked top 20 in the world.
The main living area of this fully restored, antique-filled cottage is on the second floor to take maximum advantage of the stunning view of the harbour and historic Cupid’s Cay. The charming and well-appointed living room features a vaulted ceiling. It looks out to a screened porch furnished with comfortable wicker chairs and a table for dining. Off to the right is a small but fully-equipped kitchen with all new appliances. To the rear, overlooking the garden, is a master bedroom with king-size bed and en-suite bath with walk-in shower.
Cleartide Guest Cottage is fully air conditioned and equipped with cable and high speed wifi Internet, flat screen TVs in the living area and bedrooms, and a DVD and CD player. There is a gas grill in the garden and there are beach towels, tennis rackets and snorkeling equipment available for guest use.
The town of Governors Harbour, steps from the cottage, 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.
