Welcome to Aqua Villa! Newly constructed (2015) Aqua Villa is situated directly on beautiful Unicorn Cay Beach along the prestigious Banks Road, just five minutes from the town of Governor’s Harbour and ten miles from the Governors Harbour airport.

The white Bermuda roof and ocean color façade of this aptly named, 1500 square foot villa immediately draws you in from the secluded parking area below. Curved limestone steps usher you up to Aqua Villa’s entry while you are taken in by the sunset-facing heated pool, large pool deck and covered porch for private swimming and sunbathing. The 350 square foot covered porch extends from the pool deck to separate wall-to-wall sliding door entrances to the two large adjacent bedrooms. The contemporary bedrooms each have king sized beds and LED flat screen TVs. The master bedroom has an en-suite bath with private commode and shower. The second full bath has a porcelain tub/shower combination for those who enjoy soaking after a day of swimming, snorkeling, exploring, and beach walking.

Both bedrooms open to a vast east-facing great room with sweeping beach and ocean views. Enjoy the view while lounging on the comfortable sofa and leather chairs in the open living area with 55-inch LED flat-screen TV. The sofa converts into an oversize queen with a high quality mattress to accommodate two additional guests. This spacious, airy room has a beautiful tile floor centrally embedded with a compass design. A fully equipped kitchen with granite countertops and state-of-the-art stainless steel appliances are available for those who enjoy cooking up local seafood caught with your spear or line, or bought at the town dock. Enjoy mornings at the breakfast island or dining table for six while you eat and take in the ocean view.

Wall-to wall screened sliders open onto at second large covered porch furnished for dining or relaxing as you enjoy the beach, ocean and lush landscape. Savor a sunrise breakfast and listen to the surf of the Atlantic or prepare a dinner on the outdoor gas grill and relax on a lounge. The enormous mahogany deck overlooking the beach is reminiscent of a ship’s bow from which one can gaze at expansive, unobstructed north/south views along the beach.

Kayaks and beach going equipment are stored under the deck. A short grassy path leads downhill past a fully constructed outdoor shower with bench. Literally steps from Aqua Villa, a pristine pink-sand beach and crystal clear turquoise water await you. Your own thatched palapa provides a shady respite on your sunny beach.


Aqua Villa is fully air conditioned and has its own generator should power be interrupted. A laundry room is equipped with front-loading washer and dryer. Other amenities include high-speed internet with WIFI, cable TV, and a DVD player.

Nearby are Tippy’s restaurant, a 5 minute walk down the beach, the Banks Road Deli and Ocean View Farm for the horse riding lovers. A short drive back into Governor’s Harbour and you have the convenience of banks, ATMs, grocery stores, bakery, liquor stores, gas stations, the Haynes Library, dive shop, gift shops, and medical clinic to satisfy your needs. You can dine at local places like Da Perk, the Buccaneer, French Leave 1648, Sunset Inn, or the Friday Night Fish Fry near Cupid’s Cay. Centrally located, you can easily travel to many of Eleuthera’s famous pristine 100 beaches, such as French Leave, Twin Coves, Ten Bay, or Sky Beach. Travel to the bottomless Ocean Hole, explore the caves, or visit small villages on your way to Lighthouse Beach and its cliffs. Enjoy it all while staying at Aqua Villa, a private enclave on the beach!

                                                            Was für ein wunderbares Haus in super Lage mit einem unbeschreiblich schönen Blick über den Altlantik, fantastisch. Das Haus ist noch schöner, als es die Fotos im Netz beschreiben, bestens ausgestattet in perfekter Lage mit einer sehr hohen Qualität. Es wirkt nicht wie ein Ferienhaus, sondern wie ein Eigentümerhaus, wirklich top. Wunderschöner Pool zum Sonnenuntergang. DerVerwalter vor Ort sehr nett und hilfsbereit und die Vermietungsagentur hat einen super netten kompetenten Service, von der Abwicklung, bis zu Informationen vorab und sehr netten schnellen Hilfestellungen rund um die Insel. Sehr zu empfehlen, einfach fantastisch!

                                                            Great house in a beautiful location

                                                            Aqua Villa is a great house located on a beautiful and quiet stretch of beach. The house is furnished with quality furniture and appliances. A few steps out the back door and you are standing on miles of beautiful beach. If the beach isn't your thing, the house has an incredible heated pool and patio area. All the outdoor patio furniture is high quality, not the cheap plastic stuff. We really enjoyed our stay at Aqua Villa and would not think twice about renting again. Pam at Eluetherea Vacation Rentals was extremely helpful and responsive to emails and provided a ton of information about the house and the island prior to our arrival.

                                                            Wonderful Eleuthera Experience

                                                            Aqua Villa provided us with outstanding accommodations......we thoroughly enjoyed the house and beachfront location. We hope to return to Eleuthera and would certainly rent Aqua Villa again.

                                                            Aqua Villa is one of the most beautiful homes we have ever rented. We visit Eleuthera twice a year, and have rented many homes all over the island. This home, and location is beyond perfection. Not one thing I would change. The caretaker, Hewitt makes sure you have what you need and you can just enjoy your vacation. Not one chore was asked of us. Hewitt was very responsive, and cares for this home as if it were his own. The pool is positioned perfectly, and the view from the back deck is amazing. Comfort like you are in your own home!

                                                            What a great place to stay!

                                                            We love the house. Best place we've stayed in the 18 years we've been going to Eleuthera. Everything is top of the line. The generator was wonderful to have. The beds are very comfortable and the outside area has the best views of the ocean on one side and a pool on the other! What a combination! Hewitt is wonderful! Such a nice man and will take care of any problem you might have. Thank you to Eleuthera Vacation Rentals for their help and to Kristin for answering all my questions. A great group!
