Eleuthera is ranked “25 Sexiest Beaches in the World” by Forbes Traveler, and awarded the “Best Secret Island On Earth” by Travel and Leisure. The rates listed are for Both Villas, the entire property.

While near by Harbor Island and Spanish Wells offer unique experiences, the main island is a destination for those interested in history and nature. Natural attractions include the Glass Window Bridge, Hatchet Bay Caves and Surfer's Beach in the north, and Ocean Hole and Lighthouse Beach at the south end. Preacher's Cave on the north end was home to the Eleutherian Adventurers in the mid-17th century, and recent excavations have uncovered Arawak remains at the site. There is something here for everyone - whether you simply want to relax in the luxurious surroundings, walk along the beach or partake in the many easily accessible activities. Snorkeling, kayaking, horseback riding on the beach, world-class scuba diving and fishing are just a sample of what the island has to offer.

Fly into Nassau, Bahamas followed by a short flight to Governors Harbor Airport, Eleuthera on either Pineapple Air, Bahamas Air or Southern Air Charter.

About Ken Metz

The people of Eleuthera are kind and friendly. Our staff is welcoming and understanding. All families can come to Windchat and feel at home and accepted. We have put much time and care into the renovations and construction. We open our home to guests and hope that you will care for it as you would your own home.

Ken Metz purchased this estate in 2012

Why Ken Metz chose Governor's Harbour, The Bahamas

The Sunrise Villa was built in the 1960 and although it has been completely remodeled it retains its Bahamian charm and character. The Sunset Villa is newly built and has 360% views of the island. The two villas connected by decking offers guests many gathering venues and privacy (when you want it) for families/friends.

Windchat Villa's offers guests a unique combination of luxury, privacy, peace, and beauty. Please refer to the pricing on the rates page. Rental also includes Daily Maid service Mon-Sat, Grounds and Beach Keepers and 24/7 Property Manager.

What makes this estate unique

Windchat Villas stand out as an incredibly unique offering in our community. We have invested in creating a luxury experience you and your family/friends will treasure for years to come. Our price includes unique advantages you will not find in any other rental in this area. Please take a look and get back to us if this is suitable for your needs.

1. In Eleuthera, it is common to have power outages several times during a week and it is particularly susceptible to the weather. We have installed a generator with enough power to keep you and your family comfortable for days on end.

2. Water supply in Eleuthera can be shut off daily. We have installed a state of the art cistern system with two giant water reservoirs holding 10,000 gallons of water to prevent your inconvenience.

3. The position of the property is at the highest peak on the shoreline and offers unobstructed views of sunrise and sunset.

4. The multi-sport court includes equipment for basketball, tennis, and shuffleboard. We also have foosball and ping pong tables for family fun. No one for miles around has this kind of offering and it is available exclusively to you along with one of the few heated pools around, that comes with a view that overlooks the ocean through the tops of 30 feet tall palm trees.

5. The landscaping is exquisitely designed and maintained 6 days per week, giving you a precisely manicured experience during your stay, very different from any other property in this area.

6. We have spared no expense to provide a home with furnishings that are new and in perfect repair, with new linens and upholstery which is also a different experience to most of the rentals in this area.

7. The beach in front of the property is cleaned and maintained daily and kept clear of any garbage or debris that may wash up on the shore.

8. We are committed to maintaining everything in working order, so you do not find your vacation compromised by any frustrations or inconvenience.

This place is amazing!

  • 5 of 5

Wow this place is amazing! It was like having our own private resort. Everything was beautiful and in excellent condition. The caretaker Del and his two helpers went out of their way to make our stay flawless. Everyone that was there wants to come back next year for a reunion. If you get the opportunity you need to book this place. It will be a trip you will never forget. Special thanks Ken and Forest for letting us rent your lovely home!

One of the best vacations we've had!

  • 5 of 5

Not only is this off the beaten path, which we prefer; the house and grounds were gorgeous. Not only do I recommend it, but we also plan on booking again in 2019!

Beachfront & Private Pool | Island Heaven Perfect for Groups!

  • 5 of 5

The property is absolutely gorgeous and has everything you need for a private, beachfront vacation for a large group with plenty of space to spread out. Being on the ocean with a beautiful, private beach was relaxing and perfect for anyone that needs to get away from the real world...and even better, there are two kayaks, body boards, a SUP, and if you have your equipment...a nice, quiet place to snorkel around. The pool was fantastic with space for 12 people to lay around, swim, have a few cocktails, read, and maybe dance a little! The tennis court, basketball hoop, & shuffle boards were perfect for additional entertainment. The blue tooth speakers throughout the outdoor spaces added that perfect touch. The houses provided everything you need from bedrooms with private bathrooms to a large kitchen/living/dining space for gathering! If you're looking for a private get-away in a gorgeous estate with easy access to fresh fish, lobsters, groceries, great local bars & restaurants, and beautiful beaches, you've found it here!!

A Dream Vacation...

  • 5 of 5

Our family could not have asked for a more beautiful, inviting and relaxing luxury estate than Windchat Villas. Both Sunrise Villa and Sunset Villa are modern, beautifully decorated, clean and well maintained. We had everything we needed for a perfect vacation. Our family of ten spent many hours at the beach and in the infinity pool. It was nice having two kayaks, a paddle board, beach chairs and the only palapa on our private beach. There was no one else to be seen.

In addition to tennis, ping pong, and shooting baskets, we had a shuffleboard competition which I am proud to say I won at the age of 73. It was fun and engaging for all ages. We treasured seeing the gorgeous full moon over the ocean at night and the spectacular sunrises in the mornings. We returned home with special memories of celebrating our 50th Wedding Anniversary with our daughter and son, their spouses and our four terrific grandchildren.

Ken, the owner, assisted us in planning our trip and gave invaluable guidance on airlines, car rentals, restaurants, grocery stores, farmers market for fresh veggies and bread, best place to buy the “daily catch” and things to do on the island. He was quick to respond to my emails and helped us make necessary adjustments when the airlines changed our reservations more than once. Our appreciation and thanks go out to Ken and his family. - Barbara N. & Family

One of the best vacations EVER!

  • 5 of 5

When searching online for the perfect place to celebrate my husband's 60th birthday, I came across this property. It seemed to have everything that my husband loves, so I did not hesitate to book it. When we pulled into the driveway, I instantly knew I made the right choice. From the soft white beach, to the pool, to the tennis court, modern kitchens and appliances and luxurious bathrooms - this place had it all! Despite poor weather, our family still enjoyed all that this property had to offer! We were surrounded by beauty, warmth and most importantly family! Ken, the owner, was very responsive and the staff at the location was very helpful and friendly. I hope, one day to return to Eleuthera and to this estate for my 60th!
