Lush Life is the best house on the best beach in the best town on Eleuthera. It is the most popular vacation rental on the island, a property with an ideal layout for multiple families, reunions, and small weddings.
This luxurious beachfront compound is located directly on the pristine, pink-sand French Leave Beach, which has been ranked among the top 20 beaches of the world. There are just a few other houses on this mile-long beach. It's usually deserted. The water here is famously calm, with a perfect sandy bottom and spectacular snorkeling just offshore.
Lush Life was the setting for the Tyler Perry/Janet Jackson film, ''Why Did I Get Married Too'', which was shot on location in the house and on its beach, pool, and grounds.
Lush Life has a total of four structures with 9 bedrooms, 11 baths, 4 kitchens, beautifully landscaped grounds, and a large heated pool. Full maid service twice a week is included, as is a nearby caretaker. Other staff including a selection of cooks and chefs, are available upon request.
The proximity of the compound to the water, accentuated by multiple seating areas on and almost on the beach, as well as a new, large “Sky Box” built over a dune, offer unparalleled opportunities to drink in the beauty of one of the most stunning beaches in the world.
Situated in the prestigious Banks Road, where Governors Harbour’s great estates are located, Lush Life is less than a mile from Tippy's famous beachfront restaurant and bar, the new “1648” restaurant, Da Perk, Bacchus Fine Foods, and the historic town of Governor’s Harbour.
The houses at Lush Life were exquisitely designed, and built to the most exacting modern standards of workmanship. They feature Brazilian hardwood floors, cypress cedar ceilings, custom tile, electronic mini-split air-conditioning systems, and decor by one of the Bahamas' premier interior designers. The home is continuously upgraded and maintained to the highest standards that an out island setting allows.
