Overview

About the property

4 Bedrooms, 4.5 Baths, Sleeps 8

Pyfrom House is an artistic blend of the historic and contemporary. This charming white clapboard house welcomes you through its white picket fence into a unique blend of the past and present. This lovely house dates from the first half of the1800's. During the very recent restoration, the original historic architecture was preserved while accommodating the needs of modern luxury living, including state-of-the-art fixtures, appliances, and electronics. Mixing original furnishings with a unique blend of creatively researched pieces, Pyfrom House’s renowned Italian architect created a sense of Colonial nostalgia that is unique and delightful.

The downstairs offers an open living area with comfortable seating area, dining table for 8 and fully equipped island kitchen with gas cooktop, concrete countertops and state-of-the-art appliances. Adding to the warm charm are the hardwood floors, white wood plank walls and tongue-in-groove ceilings. There is one Master Bedroom/Master Bath, one Bedroom with Twin Beds/Bathroom and Powder Room downstairs.

The upstairs features dramatic dormer ceilings with a Master Bedroom with deck overlooking gardens and luxurious Master Bathroom with step up deep soaking tub. The upstairs also has a Twin Bedroom with Bathroom.

Pyfrom House shares a pool with one other cottage. Amenities at Pyfrom House include flat-screen cable TV, air conditioning, ceiling fan, wireless internet, hi-fi stereo, cordless telephone, and off-street parking.

Pyfrom House is part of the Squires Estate collection of beautifully restored 19th century homes on the hill above Governors Harbour, furnished with antiques from around the world. The décor and level of finish will delight the most discriminating world traveler. Our manager will greet you upon arrival and be available to assist you as needed. She can arrange for daily housekeeping, a private chef, or a car rental (extra charges apply), and provide advice about island activities. Other staff at Squires Estate include a fulltime gardener and housekeepers. Laundry and ironing services are provided on the premises.

Pyfrom House can be combined with other historic homes and cottages in the Squires Estate collection for larger groups. Pyfrom House is surrounded by a lush garden which is home to many fruit trees, bougainvillea, hibiscus, aloe and coconut palms. Those are just a few of the plants that grace this serene property.

The town of Governors Harbour, a one-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 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.

Walking over the hill in the other direction takes you to French Leave Beach, the finest beach on the island and one of the great beaches of the Caribbean. By foot, it’s about 10 minutes to French Leave, a mile-long crescent of pink sand which is literally deserted most of the time. Most visitors to Eleuthera rent a car, because the island is rural and spread out, and a car is the only practical way to get around. By car, Mrs. Russel’s is just a minute from French Leave Beach.

FREE FLIGHT: A stay of four nights or longer entitles you to one free round-trip ticket from Nassau to Eleuthera or flight credits from the U.S. Some restrictions apply. THIS PROMOTION IS RUN BY THE MINISTRY OF TOURISM AND IS NOT ALWAYS AVAILABLE. Please contact us for details.

Eleuthera is famous for its 100 miles of spectacular, deserted beaches. We hope you will enjoy Pyfrom House and experience all our island has to offer.
