Rocks Retreat is a private beachfront estate of with 335 feet ocean frontage on 12 secluded acres. It consists of 2 cottages, 100 yards from the beach, connected by a patio and tile walkway. You won't find a better value, a more affordable private, secluded, direct-beachfront estate in the prime Governors Harbour location of Banks Road.
The Main Cottage of Rocks Retreat is a 24 x 24 two story cottage with a broad wrap around veranda. The entire upstairs is one enormous bedroom with two queen beds and two single beds. (The bathroom is downstairs.) It has a wonderful ocean views from its many windows and two lovely balconies. The downstairs of the Main Cottage is a large great room with a kitchen, dining room, and living area, and a small bathroom with a tile shower. The kitchen area is small but adequate. There is also an outdoor shower.
For larger groups which need a second bedroom, the Guest Cottage is a spacious king bedroom suite with a sitting area and an en suite double sink bathroom with a tub and separate tile shower. The Guest Cottage is available for an additional charge of $50/night, which also pays for two more guests. If you don't need it, it will be locked off and NOT rented to anyone else. Rocks Retreat is always rented to just one group at a time.
The Main Villa’s spacious bedroom with two queen and two single beds has wonderful views from both balconies and cool breezes being on the second floor. The disadvantage of the Main Villa is that the bathroom is downstairs and not very large. If you prefer a large en suite bathroom (or if you are a party of more than two), you can add the Guest Cottage for $50/night.
Rocks Retreat is set back 100 yards from the ocean and the spectacular Culmer's Rocks that separates the north from the south beach. We have access to both spectacular beaches, which are typically deserted. The private grounds are mowed and spacious with palmettos and palm trees. You have 12 acres all to yourself!
Amenities include WIFI, air conditioning, and two outdoor showers. There is no satellite TV.
Rocks Retreat is located on the prestigious Banks Road of Governors Harbour. Famous Tippy's restaurant is just a mile away. The town of Governors Harbour is a 5 minute drive. Governors Harbour has grocery stores, restaurants, liquor stores, two banks with ATMs, a bakery, gift shops, a dive shop, and a medical clinic. It has a nice little collection of 19th century homes and churches overlooking a picturesque harbor. You can buy fresh fish and lobster every afternoon from fisherman at the town dock. Friday night Fish Fry in Governors Harbour is a street/beach party that brings together all the tourists and locals with food, drink, and dancing in the street. You won’t want to miss it.
