About the property

Wake up each morning to a view the calm blue-green waters of the Caribbean, your own private beach, and a peaceful cay offshore. This 3 bedroom, 2-bath home is fully equipped with central air, wireless internet, flat screen TVs (including 42-inch TV in living room), cable, DVD player, washer and dryer, gas grill, kayak and outdoor shower. The modern kitchen is fully equipped with microwave, blender, cooking utensils, china, coffee grinder, and coffee maker.

Enjoy our 3 KAYAKS, 2 single & one double seat, or spend a day bone fishing right at your front door. Relax in the lounge chairs under the umbrella and enjoy the sea breeze. Cook on our outdoor grill as the sun sets over the Caribbean.

Bella Luna is conveniently located one mile from the town of Governors Harbour. Governors Harbour 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. (Description continued at bottom of ad.)

The town of Governors Harbour, one mile away, 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.

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 Bella Luna, and experience all our island has to offer.

Children over the age of 5 are welcome.

Private and well maintained

  • 5 of 5

Fantastic property, in a beautiful Central location. We really enjoyed having use of the kayaks and had some great fishing right in front on the villa. The owners were very helpful if we needed anything but also left us well alone so we could enjoy the private feel to the villa. I'll certainly be checking it's availability if we visit again.

Wonderful vacation!

  • 4 of 5

We had a great stay over the holidays at this home. The owners were very responsive to any issues we had and have maintained the home very well. The kitchen is well equipped and the house is very clean. The water is perfect. It's a very short drive to the Atlantic side of the island if you want a longer beach for walking or running. The grocery store is close by but I urge you to bring as much as you can down with you as groceries are very expensive. Govenor's Harbour bakery is good and the fish fry on Fridays is fun.

Ignore negative YouTube video!

  • 5 of 5

Don't believe the negative YouTube video - there are no images of problems described! The property is even better than pictured on this website and we had no trouble with the home or the owners. Beautiful house, great location, and a perfect small beach out front. The home came with everything we needed, including a fully-equipped kitchen, lots of towels, washer/dryer, great AC, and plenty of beach accessories. The owners were friendly but not obtrusive. We've stayed other places on Eleuthera and loved this rental. We will be back!

Owner's Response: That old youtube video was not posted by a guest at all, but by a local who had a grudge against the owner of the house. It bears no relation to the truth.

Clean. Beautiful. Up to date home.

  • 5 of 5

The owners made it perfectly clear that they genuinely care for their guests comfort and well being throughout our WHOLE stay, by their actions. What wonderful people to work with. The house was nicer than the pictures on the website. It was clean and well stocked with everything we needed--everything. I can not think of one thing we didn't have in the house. I appreciated the toilet paper, paper towels, garbage bags, etc. I have been to vacation rentals that do not supply those items. The items throughout the whole house were of great quality, from the kitchen utensils to the sheets. The kayaks are a nice touch (for others!!). My daughter and husband enjoyed them very much. The view of the Caribbean Sea was very peaceful and beyond my wildest dreams, right in my own backyard. I liked being in the center of the island, the location fit us perfectly to go in either direction. The beaches were breath taking. It's crazy, but all of the beaches I visited had their own "feel". I highly recommend this home.
