About Randy and Judy Chavis

Hometown: Austin Randy and Judy Chavis built this home in 2014. Our boys have been swimming in Eleuthera Beaches since they were 8 years old.

Randy and Judy Chavis purchased this House in 2014

Why Randy and Judy Chavis chose Governor's Harbour, The Bahamas

We spent our honeymoon in Eleuthera 28 years ago and fell in love with the island/people and decided to build a home here. We walk sometimes into town to have coffee at Da Perk or just to go for stroll along the ocean. Governors Harbour is centrally located maximizing your time on the island

                                                      Thanks for staying with us and the review! We love the location also as it is secluded but close to everything.

                                                      Thanks again,

                                                      Sea La Vie is a lovely home with all you could possibly need for a perfect vacation. The beds are comfortable and new , and the rest of the house is tastefully decorated with a well equipped kitchen that is just a plain joy to cook your lobster in and sit outside and watch the sun set. If you are hot just walk down the steps and have a good snorkel. George is a delight and will see to anything you need with a big smile.

                                                      The location is perfect. Just a short walk to town and some great restaurants; Da Perk, The Buccaneer and the newer resort called French Leave as well as some great local spots.

                                                      Centrally located to explore beaches both north and south. All of which have their own personalities . This being the best reason to come to Eleuthera. Rent a car and hunt for some hidden ones.

                                                      This was my second trip to Sea La Vie and I look forward to returning.

                                                      Lovely Property and Experience

                                                      Leah N.

                                                      My husband and I stayed here for a week in April 2017 and were very pleased with our choice. We'd never been to Eleuthera before, so we did a lot of research on all the rental homes to choose from and after reading all the other positive reviews we chose this one.

                                                      The home itself is in great shape and the furniture, decor, etc. felt very clean and inviting. We enjoyed sitting on the back steps that lead into the Caribbean every morning while we drank our coffee, as well as exploring the garden in the side yard to see what was in season and growing there. The location felt very private even though you just drive down the long, tree-lined driveway and are suddenly in the bustle of Governor's Harbor (literally minutes from the grocery store, gas station, conch salad street vendor, various restaurants, coffee cafe, and amazing water views). We rented a car and explored all over the island, as far north as the Pink Sands Beach on Harbor Island (via a quick ferry ride) and as far south as Lighthouse Beach and this home is very centrally located as far as these type of excursions go.

                                                      The master bathroom was excellent, with a ton of counter top space and a shower that even beat ours at home! We never ran out of hot water and the water pressure was great. The bed was comfortable and the kitchen had all the amenities you'll need (just be sure to bring or buy your own spices, sugar, basic staples you'll use for cooking).

                                                      We felt very welcomed and well prepared by Randy (the owner) before we arrived, with both a phone call and follow up email to cover the basics of our stay as well as to answer any questions we had. George (the caretaker) did a great job of welcoming us as well, showing us the ropes of the house upon arrival and offering to assist us at any time during our stay.

                                                      We would definitely stay here again and would recommend this home to anyone looking for a place to stay!

                                                      Beautiful private place and ideal location!

                                                      Renee M.

                                                      This was our 5th visit to Eleuthera and I think the location of Sea le Vie is perfect! You can walk into town and it is central on the island to go north or south. The house is very nice and comfortable. The views are amazing from the house. Very close to the water. They truly have thought of everything! Eleuthera can be a bit rustic but this house is not! All the comforts of home. The wifi worked great and the Directv was nice too in the evenings. George the caretaker was also warm and friendly and very helpful! There were two couples on this trip and the house was perfect. It is just outside of town but completely private. We didn't see one other person the whole time we were there. We snorkeled right there too and saw beautiful coral and a stingray. I would definitely recommend this house. We are already planning a return visit.

                                                      We are extremely glad you enjoyed your stay! The privacy plus the proximity to town is very important to us.

                                                      Judy and I look forward to your next visit.

                                                      Ah, Sea La Vie: We have rented many a house in the Bahamas and none have come close to Sea La Vie. As a matter of fact we are still here, I just couldn't wait to write the review. The moment we entered we new we had hit the jackpot, finally. The furnishings are comfortable and new. The kitchen is lovely and very well stocked with sharp knives, a rarity, and plenty of high quality pots and pans, as well as silverware, glasses and place settings. The beds are huge, new and comfortable. The bathrooms are large with great shower heads and lots of hot water, as well as plenty of pressure. We felt no need to leave the quiet sanctity of the back deck and the surprisingly good snorkeling right down the stairs. The weather did not favor us, but it was not a problem. We had great TV and internet to entertain us in the rain and wind, not to mention the views. Having both quiet AC and heat was also much appreciated. The owners checked on us to make sure al was well and the caretaker was a delight!

                                                      There are many good places to eat nearby in the village and wonderful beaches in both directions. My husband and I highly recommend Sea La Vie
