Overview

About the property

3 Bedrooms, 3 1/2 Baths

"Any closer and I would be in heaven" is the wooden sign that hangs outside The Beach House. The interiors reflect island life with island style, a mixture of the old and new. Original one-of-a-kind pieces adorn this wonderful beach home. Vaulted ceilings, glass doors that step out onto a fabulous (and enormous) deck, and a view of the most breathtaking pink-sand beach lends itself to the ultimate island getaway. Step off the deck onto the amazing beach and walk into the beautiful Atlantic Ocean.

The Beach House is located directly on French Leave Beach, a mile-long crescent of pink sand that has been ranked top 20 in the world. It is located on the prestigious Banks Road of Governors Harbour, the premier location on Eleuthera. The town of Governors Harbour, with restaurants, groceries stores, shops, and banks, is only a mile away.

The Beach House has just been totally renovated (work completed in August of 2016). A mixture of modern and rustic beach living is the decor and theme throughout. Concrete counter tops, stainless steel appliances, and a double commercial sink are part of the modern and well equipped kitchen. The dining table built from reclaimed island wood comfortably seats eight with additional seating for four at the kitchen island. The living area with its white couches and hand-crafted island straw mats looks out through a wall of glass onto the deck and French Leave Beach beyond. Relax outside on the swinging day beds or sip a drink at the outdoor bar.

The Beach House has three bedrooms, each with their own bathroom. Two of the bedrooms have king beds with ocean and beach views. The third bedroom has a queen bed with a tropical garden view. The house is fully air conditioned and every room has ceiling fans.

The large outdoor deck is the perfect place to watch the sunrise in the morning, sunbathe through the day, or enjoy a relaxing, tranquil afternoon. Equipped with a full-size bar, gas grill, and dining and lounging spaces, it is the ultimate getaway.

With its vast veranda, outdoor bar, and direct beachfront location, the Beach House is ideal for hosting weddings and other events. Additional charges may apply for events.

Amenities at The Beach House include wifi, satellite tv, a washer and dryer and a gas grill.

Perfect Spot for Idyllic Tropical Vacation

  • 5 of 5

We had a fantastic time at the Beach House. Everything was perfect--the setting was idyllic, the beach was outstanding, and the house itself was well layed out and stylishly decorated. The beds were comfortable, and the living space (which extended nicely into the lanai area) was spacious and allowed for both intimate togetherness and personal space for our group of five. The kitchen was large and well equiped, allowing us to cook most of our meals in. The house feels very private, yet was a very short (and walkable) distance to town for groceries, gas and restaurants. Michele, the owner, was extremely helpful and accomodating (and a blast to talk to). The rental agent Matt was likewise dependable, and great to deal with. All in all the best tropical vacation this seasoned group has ever had!

Beautiful Renovation - Charming Beachfront Home!

  • 5 of 5

The Beach House was “as advertised” and did not disappoint! This house was the previous Beach House Restaurant located on Banks Road. The location is perfect - very close to downtown Governor's Harbour and all our favorite restaurants. We really enjoyed our stay. Michele, the owner, is accessible and so knowledgeable about the island. She has renovated the Beach House with care and with a unique, rustic style - blending this with high-end finishes in the kitchen and bath areas. Beds and linens are of good quality - important for relaxing nights! Entry area is beautiful and so unique – gorgeous bench seating and the first view you have of the Atlantic. The decorations are quite beautiful throughout, deck was huge, wonderfully laid out and accessibility to the beach was perfect. We loved all the French doors surrounding the entry and main living areas and the master bedrooms. Also a plus were the mounted air conditioning units in each bedroom, the hallway and main living area allowing us to personally control temps in the bedrooms and shared areas.

There were four in our party and overall the space worked well. We cooked in several nights and never experienced a situation where we didn’t have something we needed in the kitchen. Appliances/cookware are top notch.

Michele came over right away on check in day (it was a first for us to have an owner who also is the primary caretaker!), dropped off two bottles of wine and some pantry items for us. She reviewed the features of the house and left plenty of keys and her personal cell phone number. If we needed something she was there for us. There was a chilled water cooler (with a couple of replacements for the cooler she also provided) so we used that and refilled them at the Shell station/market as needed - around $4 each time and so much cheaper than bottled waters. There were plenty of beach towels, and wonderful Frontgate lounge chairs that could be used on the beach. Outdoor shower, outdoor sink on the deck and also an outdoor bathroom separate from the house. The house has 3.5 baths inside plus the outdoor bath with toilet and sink.

Sea kayak was brought over at our request and a life jacket since we were missing one for my oldest son. Snorkeling was best on the reef close to the small island as you face the ocean - about two houses down on the right. Smaller reef closer in is to the left of the house.

All in all a great trip, a very unique and special place to spend your time on Eleuthera.

comfort of staying in your own home, but in heaven

  • 5 of 5

We stayed at Bahamas Beach House for years before it was remodeled and loved it then! Michele took this wonderful place to a whole new level of comfort! Right down to the pillows, it is everything we needed and wanted! We have spent 14 years renting different houses on Eleuthera and this is it for us. Vacation on the island for us is fishing, cooking, and enjoying time with our friends so BBH is the perfect place.
