Overview

About the property

11 Bedrooms, 16 Baths, 3 Pools, Sleeps 24

This beautiful estate is set on landscaped grounds atop a hill overlooking the Atlantic Ocean to the east and the town of Governors Harbour on the west. Governors Estate consists of 5 accommodations, all newly built and professionally decorated:

Yellow House (4 bedrooms, 5 baths)

Sweet Corn House (3 bedrooms, 4 baths)

Tops House (2 bedrooms, 3 baths)

Peach House upstairs suite (1 bedroom, 2 baths)

Peach House downstairs suite (1 bedroom, 2 baths)

From Governors Estate, it is an 8 minute walk down the hill to famous French Leave Beach, a mile long crescent of pink sand that has been ranked in the top 20 of the world.

A 5 minute walk in the other direction takes you to the village of Governors Harbour. Governors Harbour 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, a dive shop, 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.

Eleuthera is famous for its 100 miles of spectacular, deserted beaches. The island, home to just 8000 residents, is completely safe any time of the day or night. Enjoy the rare experience of picking up hitch-hikers and leaving your keys in the car wherever you go. The snorkeling, diving, and fishing on the island are world class. Boating, surfing, and other water sports are also popular. You can rent power boats, sailboats, sea kayaks, bikes. You can have a charter captain take you out for excursions of various types. There is excellent sightseeing as well. Eleuthera has vast caves, cliffs, a bottomless ocean hole, many unique beaches, historic churches and 19th century homes, and small villages to explore.
