Overview

About the property

7 Bedrooms, 7 Baths, Private Pool, Beachfront

This property consists of two adjacent houses, 100 feet apart:

The first is Goodwind House, a three bedroom villa with an enormous great room that will comfortably accommodate 14+ guests and provides the dining and lounging area for the two houses. Goodwind is located directly on world-famous French Leave Beach, a pristine beach renowned for its pink sand and turquoise water. French Leave Beach is 75 yards wide and over a mile long, with only seven houses on the entire length. Although pristine and typically deserted, French Leave Beach is just a mile from the main town on the island, Governors Harbour.

Goodwind House has an enormous light-filled great room with 360-degree views. All the windows open to catch the ocean breeze, and there are six ceiling fans (no air conditioner in great room). The great room includes a dining area with seating for 12 guests and a complete wet bar with ice-maker. There is seating for fifteen in the living area, centered on an entertainment center with flat screen TV and a separate projects/game table. The fully equipped kitchen is open to the great room for those who wish to entertain while cooking. The spacious screen porch has dining tables with seating for ten and a large hammock. There is an open deck towards the sea furnished with four recliners with end tables between them, and nearby, a gas grill for outdoor cooking.

Goodwind House sleeps 6 in its three bedrooms. All bedrooms are air-conditioned. The upstairs master bedroom suite has a king-size four-poster bed, his and hers closets, and a large bathroom with a walk-in shower. Downstairs are two more bedrooms, both with king beds, and two more bathrooms, one with a walk-in shower and one with a shower-tub combination. There is also a laundry room with a washer and dryer.

Amenities at Goodwind include WIFI, satellite TV, and a landline telephone for local calls. We have plenty of board games, toys, and books. Goodwind comes with everything you need to enjoy our beautiful beach. There are six beach chairs, a sixteen by eight foot shade house , and plenty ofbeach toys. The more adventurous can explore the nearby reefs and beaches in our three SEA KAYAKS.

The second house is Richview House, across the little road from Goodwind. (It is a very small road with very little traffic.)

Richview is a new and luxurious, 4-bedroom, 4-bath home with a private heated pool. (Pool heating is optional for $300/week.) Richview includes a two-story, three-bedroom main house with an attached honeymoon suite, for that couple in your group who desire extra privacy. Each section contains its own well-stocked, full-service kitchen.

Richview offers great outdoor living space with a huge wrap-around deck with loungers, a charcoal grill, outdoor dining area, two outdoor showers, a pergola for shade, and an observation deck with spectacular 360-degree views.

You enter Richview into the large Front Hall. This spacious room has a couch, access to the washer/dryer, and sliders to the rear deck. To your right is the computer room (with wifi and VOIP phone) and access to the two first-floor bedrooms. One has a king bed and the other two twins that can be converted to a king.

Returning to the Front Hall, you take the steps to the second floor. Here we have a full kitchen, large dining area, living room (all with BEAUTIFUL beach and ocean views) and a separate queen size bedroom and full bathroom. Off this area, you can enter the sundeck and observation deck. The views from the deck are truly spectacular. The ocean is 50 yards away and you can see 360 degrees of Eleuthera.

Returning to the first floor Front Hall, on your left is the entrance to the one-story Honeymoon Suite with a king-size bed, living room, its own full kitchen, and a large shower/bathroom. All four bedrooms at Richview have private en-suite bathrooms.

Just walk across the street and down our private path, and you’re at Goodwind House, the other house of the pair, and on the beautiful pink sand of French Leave Beach. Richview comes with everything you need to enjoy our beautiful beach, including beach chairs and umbrellas, and two outdoor showers.

Goodwind and Richview are located just a mile from the town of Governors Harbour, with its restaurants and stores. The properties are located on the historic Banks Road, the premier location on Eleuthera, famous for its grand estates. Famous Tippy’s beachfront restaurant I just a mile away. There is an excellent reef for snorkeling a short walk down the beach, inhabited by a wide variety of reef fishes.

French Leave Beach is an idyllic, mile-long, crescent-shaped beach. There are only seven houses on the entire length of this spectacular beach. The surf is very mild, protected by a large reef system that parallels the shore. The water on French Leave Beach is literally crystal clear: with no rivers or streams on the island, Eleuthera's seas are free of sediment and among the clearest in the world.
