Overview

Bahamas House Rental Photos and Description

Two bedrooms, two baths, sleeps 5

Villa Seacrest is situated on a 20-acre Caribbean-side beachfront estate. This lovely house features two bedrooms, each with an en-suite bath. Each bedroom has a beautiful ocean view through large windows.

The open-plan living room and kitchen also have ocean views through a wall of glass opening onto a lovely and spacious screened veranda, which serves as the dining room. A one minute walk takes you to a secluded cove with 1000’ of private beachfront. This bay, called Tranquility Bay, offers excellent snorkeling, fishing and shelling.

Amenities include air-conditioned bedrooms, flat screen TV with DVD player (but no satellite or cable TV), and wifi. Outdoor amenities include a two-person kayak, boogie boards, snorkeling gear, and hammocks on the beach. Just bring your tooth brush! All guests are met by our caretaker upon arrival.

Villa Seacrest shares this 20-acre estate with one other house 100 yards away. The houses are separated by trees and distance, providing each with plenty of privacy. However, they are near enough to be rented together by larger groups of up to 10 guests.

The town of Governors Harbour, less than a ten-minute drive, 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, jet skis, scooters, and bikes. You can have a charter captain take you out for excursions of various types. You ride horses on the beach or on trails. 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 Villa Seacrest and experience all our island has to offer.

Our local fishing guide will be happy to pick you up directly from our beach to take you fishing. Ask us for details.

The Perfect Vacation

  • 5 of 5

The name is perfect. This has to be one of the most tranquil spots on earth. Perfect to reflect and unwind while leaving all the cares of the world behind. As I walked the beach each morning the only set of footprints were mine from the previous day! It was glorious! Don't miss a day trip to Harbor Island and a walk-about in historic Governors Harbor and you must dine at Tippie's at least once during your stay! Read the guest reflections on your first day and check out all the options.

Steve and Cindy are the perfect host if you are lucky enough to be there during their stays. Their love and care for the beautifully maintained property is obvious.

Idyllic villa on secluded beach, pristine water!

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I, and our 2 boys stayed at Villa Seacrest for 3 weeks. We miss it already! The villa was very well maintained and clean and is also very well-stocked. It had everything we needed to cook our meals. We absolutely fell in love with Eleuthera. The beaches are amazing! The beach at Villa Seacrest is very secluded and the water is very calm and pristine. We highly recommend this property. Thanks so much Steve and Cindy for opening up and sharing your home. We will never forget our awesome vacation and we hope to come back.

Great owners, great home, great island!

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I stayed in Sea Crest in late spring 2015. We decided to celebrate our 30th anniversary in a grand way. And we did. We could not have picked a better island, a better beach or a better home to stay at than the Sea Crest. Tranquility Bay is perfect. The water is warm, shallow and turquoise blue. We had the whole beach to ourselves all day, every day. When we wanted to go to the Atlantic side, it was just a small drive up the driveway, across the road and down the dunes to the other side. Fantastic.

The home had everything we needed to make the trip perfect. The screened in sun room is where we spent most of our time. The music selection and movie selection kept our evenings full. The beds were king sized, the air conditioning kept us cool for sleeping, and the tree frogs sang us to sleep every night. We woke refreshed every-day to get up and do paradise all over again.

If you are looking for a quiet, relaxing, stress free vacation—then this is the place for you. As soon as we arrived, we could feel the stresses of life falling away. IF you are looking to spend quality time together—then look no further. Sea Crest is the perfect place to reconnect with your friends, with your children, or with your sweetheart. Life is good at the Sea Crest.

VACATION OF A LIFETIME

  • 5 of 5

Upon arrival you would think the red carpet had been laid out just for us. The great hospitality exceeded our expectations. The food, clocks and meeting new friends were just a few of the wonderful experiences we had. The house had fresh coconut, and of course, homemade bread daily! What more could a girl ask for!! Be sure and try the Fishbone Tours. It will be well worth you time. The things you see and touch are amazing!! Walks on the beach to enjoy the beauty of our earth were so serene. We just sit and vision and return to the wonderful island of Eleuthra and visit with our friends.

THE PERFECT VACATION OF A LIFETIME

  • 5 of 5

There are not enough words to describe Tranquility!! The villa is absolutely perfect for a vacation to enjoy the beautiful nature and the hospitality of Steve and Cindy. If they are there when you arrive, you would think the Red Carpet had been ordered!! The food and clocks were amazing along with meeting wonderful friends for a beach barbeque! Could not have asked for a better time to reflect on the wonders of the world. By all means - do try the Fishbone tour. You will never forget what you will see and touch. Can only dream of returning to such a beautiful private beachfront villa. All will enjoy as much as we did and the memories will be for a lifetime!!
