|Minimum Stay||3 - 7 nights|
This sunny suite on landscaped grounds was decorated by the island's premier designer. It is located on the hilltop above Governors Harbour, in a small community of homes called Governors Estate. Stroll down the hill to the shops and restaurants of town, or in the other direction to world-famous French Leave Beach.
Peach house has an open-plan living and dining area with French doors to a large patio. The spacious master bedroom, which also has a door to the patio, has a king bed and an en suite bathroom with a walk-in shower. There is an additional half bath off of the living room.
The kitchen is fully equipped and supplied. Kitchen appliances include a glass-topped electric range and oven, full-size refrigerator, microwave, dishwasher, toaster, and blender.
Peach House is fully air-conditioned and comes with WIFI, satellite TV, DVD player, mp3 dock, landline phone, beach chairs, beach umbrella, washer and dryer, and barbecue grill.
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 restaurants, grocery stores, 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.
A 6 to 8 minute walk in the other direction takes you to French Leave Beach, the most beautiful beach on the island and one of the great beaches of the hemisphere. Walk for miles along the sandy shore, or snorkel in the gin-clear waters. The northern half of the beach has no homes and is usually completely deserted. On the southern end of the beach, you can enjoy a meal or a cocktail at the beachside Beach House restaurant. Or stat at home at Peach House and enjoy an outdoor meal or morning coffee on your shaded patio, and grill your days catch on the outdoor gas grill.
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 Peach House, and experience all our island has to offer.
We chose Eleuthra for a quiet time to recharge - and celebrate our 25th wedding anniversary! We couldn't have made a better choice. To start, the Peach House was a perfect spot to call home. Located in Governor's Harbour, you got to feel like you were a bit in a community there, and being centralized it is an easy drive to all the sights. The accommodations are excellent, bright/airy/clean and very welcoming. Kathy welcomed us with a bottle of wine and a home made lasagna, perfect for a first meal after travel. Would love to do it again some time.
This was our second stay at Governor's Harbour and in one of The Coleman's properties. From our arrival to the day we left everything was perfect. The house is so inviting with the numerous french doors to open and let in the beautiful breeze, lasagna and wine waiting on the counter, and of course Cathy welcoming us back!! I am almost tempted to keep this to myself. I already feel a little possessive of this beautiful retreat. It is honestly the only vacation I take where I can completely relax! We'll be back…..
Kathy was so welcoming and accommodating! The apartment was clean, cute and very well appointed. She even made us lasagna for our first night's stay, and was very helpful with places we should explore and which beaches to seek out. We can't wait to go back!
My wife and I just returned from a week on Eleuthera and had an Awesome time.
The accommodations were spectacular, including your daily alarm of the roosters every morning. We were in the downstairs unit of the Peach House which was tastefully decorated. Upon our arrival Kathy came to introduce herself and let us know of all the places we should see and were to eat. She also provided lasagna, a bottle of wine and a few cold beers to enjoy our first day.
Both Kathy & Bob were amazing host and the location couldn't be any better. A short walk down to Club Med Beach or French Leave Beach in one direction and down to the Daily Perk for coffee and fresh baked goods in the other. Kathy also had a fresh garden that you could pick herbs and veggies from for any meals that you may want to prepare.
The other homes she has on the property are also tastefully done and we would definitely return and bring friends to stay in one of the homes. if you are there on a Friday night you have to attend the fish fry down in Governor's Harbour were the locals and tourist all gather and enjoy themselves with Food, Drinks, Music and Dancing.
Overall as Kathy would say it was "LOVELY".
This apartment is perfect for 1 or 2 people. Large king sized bed and 1.5 bathrooms. Nice quiet area. Everything needed for a comfortable stay. A view of the ocean would have been nice, but the grounds are very pretty and well kept, so make up for the lack of a view. Kathy and Bob are very pleasant and always close by to answer questions or help you unlock the door if you lock yourself out of the apartment. ;o) Loved the little garden out back. I had a fresh salad every night. Governor's Harbour is in the process of being re-establised, with many renovations. It's central location is convenient for visiting all areas of the island. Very quaint.
We stumbled onto this incredibly immaculate,well maintained and appointed rental for 5 magical days mid March 2016. The apartment is absolutely beautifully decorated with high end amenities to make your stay comfortable and memorable. The owners, Kathy and Bob, have anticipated their guests needs/wants providing items most people didn't even think they might need or want! They are both highly respected professionals in the area not to mention very nice people.
Kathy is a very welcoming hostess providing a thorough property and island orientation. There is a "house cell phone" to enhance your visit and peace of mind. In addition to the high-end amenities of the property, you will receive a DELICIOUS vegetable lasagna, bottle of wine, beer and water upon your arrival. There is also a vegetable/herb garden she invites you to share. Laundry facilities are right out the back door with a handy clothes tree for air drying, if desired.
The island is serene, relaxed and beautiful. Completely safe. Closest beach: down the hill, take a left, then a right and stop when you hit blue!!!! Site of the old Club Med. It is walk-able, but might be a bit challenging with umbrella, beach chairs, coolers, beach bag etc...I recommend you rent a car...we used Mr. Kean Stubbs and he was awesome! You will also want to explore the island so the car is necessary. You are central in Governor's Harbor ...travel north or south you can't miss. Take a trip down to Rock Sound and stop at Tarpum Bay for fresh conch salad at one the stalls. Meet the fisherman in either Governors Harbor or Tarpum Bay in the afternoon for the fresh catch. Does not get any better than that. Enjoy lunch at Sky Beach or drinks/snacks at Tippy's.
Eleuthera Vacation Rentals are fantastic to work with. They are responsive and handle your rental competently and professionally.
I highly recommend any of the properties at Governors Estates and the island of Eleuthera. My first impression when we saw the property in person was that it was exactly as represented on-line. But, actually is was soooo much more!
