Overview

About the property

1 Bedroom, 1 Bath, Sleeps 2

This sunny suite on landscaped grounds is located on the hilltop above Governors Harbour, in a small community of homes called Governor’s Estate. Stroll down the hill to the shops and restaurants of town, or buy fresh fish and lobster from the town dock. An 8-minute walk in the other direction takes you to French Leave Beach, the most beautiful beach on the island. Walk for miles along this sandy shore, snorkel in the gin-clear waters, and enjoy a meal or a cocktail at the beachside Beach House restaurant. If you prefer, stay at home at Peach House and sunbathe on your expansive deck with views of the ocean.

Peach House has a bright and sunny, open-plan living and dining area with French doors to a large deck. The spacious master bedroom, which also has French doors to a deck, has a king bed and en suite bathroom with walk-in shower. There is an additional half-bath off the living room.

The kitchen is fully equipped and supplied. Kitchen appliances include a glass-topped electric range and oven, full-size refrigerator, microwave, dishwasher, toaster, and blender.

The apartment has access a laundry room with washer and dryer, shared with the downstairs apartment. Peach House is fully air-conditioned and equipped with IPOD docks, WIFI, and satellite TV with DVD.

French Leave Beach, walking distance from the house, is an idyllic, mile-long, crescent-shaped, pink-sand beach. There are only half a dozen houses on the entire length of this spectacular beach, among the most famous in the Bahamas. 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.

The town of Governors Harbour, at the bottom of the hill, has a charming collection of 19th century homes and churches overlooking its historic harbor. The recently restored Haynes Library, which dates from 1897, hosts a 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. We hope you will enjoy Peach House, and experience all our island has to offer.

Guestbook comments from the manager

we had a great time on Eleuthera and we loved Kathy and Bob place, we felt like at home, nothing missing, everything practical and clean, so nice and comfortable, the deck all around the apartment is great we could spend a lot of time outside because we could choose the sunniest spot or the less windy.... she really thought about everything for her tenants....

We think that their location on top of the hill at Governor Harbor is the best after exploring the all island... we loved it there!

They gave us very good tips at the beginning of our vacation to find grocery stores, restaurants and the best beaches.... they were there for us!

Always a pleasure!

  • 5 of 5

The Colmans are good hosts and Kathy makes certain that guests' comforts and needs are met! This is my third stay at the Peach apartment (husband and I also stay at their Tops house at Governors Estates). It feels like a second home, so that says a lot, as I settled in and enjoyed living in Eleuthera. I don't need to reiterate the virtues of being on the island as others have already done so. It's the best to me and I hope for thee! Donna

Probably the best house in Governors Harbour

  • 5 of 5

We were upgraded and stayed at Tops House in Governors Harbour and I can say, that every expectation we had was exceeded. We found two spacious sleeping rooms with ensuite bathrooms, very pleasently furbished and equipped in very clean condition. Everything is there: beach towels and chairs, umbrellas, kitchen with microwave, coffee machine, mixer..., outside grill, pool with deck chairs, veranda chairs. Pool and garden are permanently maintained and cleaned.

It was a pleasure staying there and try the local goods in our holiday kitchen, go for a drink ervery now and then to Tippis or 1648 or Sunset Inn, have a coffee and a peace of rum cake at Da Perks when waiting for the fisherman, walking along Club Med Beach and enjoy the fresh Atlantic waters, practice Yoga in the morning on the spacious veranda towards the garden, browse the internet at the private pool with the free WiFi and, and, and...

We strongly recommend this place - eather for a family with two kids or two couples.

Lovely Cottage in a Lovely Location

  • 5 of 5

The Upper Peach House was a great choice. It fulfilled our expectations and more. The house was so clean and very bright with plenty of room for two people. The grounds are maintained beautifully. The location is central to the island, which is helpful for anyone who wants to see the whole island, as we did. We could break up the driving by going south one day and then north another. The owner, Kathy Coleman, is an absolute delight. We really enjoyed talking with her and she is warm and friendly, ready to help in any way. Very thoughtful to provide a cell phone for emergencies, welcome food & beverage and eager to accommodate. We will gladly rent from her again. Everyone at Eleuthera Vacation Rentals was very helpful and eager to be sure we were happy in getting our reservation in place. Eleuthera is beautiful. Very quiet and relaxing. Not many dining options, but enough to take care of us for the week. Our favorite restaurant was 1648, which happens to be very close to the property. Tippy's is fun for drinks & catch the live music if you can as it is only once a week. Skye Beach is fun for a day of beach with a pool & drinks. Lighthouse Beach is quite a drive, but worth it. Stunning views from on top of the rocks. We use Turnquest Car Rentals and Arthur was great! Would use his service again. Extremely casual island, don't bother packing anything very fancy. A wonderful island to just chill.

Quaint and beautiful

  • 5 of 5

Peach house was very cute! We had the upstairs unit. Very good value for the property! The unit was modern and very cozy. The view isn't as great as a beach front property and you will need to drive to get to the nearest beach, but it is in a good location, and we had a wonderful stay!

Excellent Stay

  • 5 of 5

The upstairs Peach house rental was perfect. You can sit on the outside deck and enjoy a distant view of the water and the most beautiful beach is a 10 minute walk or quick car ride. The apartment was tastefully decorated and filled with everything that you could possibly need. The owner Kathy lives right next door and is always available for advice. I would rent again in a heart beat.

Home on Eleuthera

  • 5 of 5

Kathy, Bob and Joe the dog made our stay a perfect one! Everything we possibly could have needed for our stay was provided by the warmest people. Not once did we feel alone or left to fend for ourselves.

Highlights:

- being welcomed with a quick rundown of what to do, what to eat, and the best lasagne we've ever tasted after a long day of flying

- the bright lighting during the day and spotlessly clean design of the house

- views from every window and balcony that somehow manage to still feel private due to the landscaping -- which has a garden you can use!

- a land line so that anyone calling from the island doesn't need to use long distance

- several amenities you'd have at your own home, so you don't need to buy several things you can't bring on planes when you get there

- central location with easy access to shops, banks, great restaurants and the best beaches

- being greeted by Joe the dog each night we came home, one night Joe decided to take a nap in the livingroom with my husband :) Joe's great to hang with, especially when you miss your own pet!

We plan to come again with a larger group so we can try the other houses! All of them are designed with impeccable taste. They are perfect against the backdrop of the beauty and colours of Eleuthera.
