Gregory Town house description

Eleuthera Island, the name means Freedom ... Discovered in 1688 by a band of shipwrecked adventurers, they named the 100 mile sliver of land after the Greek word for freedom.

Today you can experience that freedom on your own Island adventure at Cove House Bahamas. Cove House, located on the picturesque Harbor Cove of Gregory Town is an authentically renovated colonial Bahamian home with great stone pillars sparkling white against the back drop of Sea and Sun.

Cove House features a unique Island decor. Clean and comfortable Island living. If you have never slept on an Island you will never be quite the same. Cove House is located close to everything the Island offers. Long lovely secluded beaches for shelling or just relaxing, unique Island made shopping, grocery stores, surfing beaches, and you can take advantage of the natives harvest from the sea by purchasing their catch right on the wharf. Lobster dinner anyone?

RECENT TESTIMONIALS:

The most beautiful holiday we spent. Adventure pure plus this lovely home.
Thanks a lot.

25 hour flight to get here and worth it! Eleuthera bears it’s name well given the feeling we had here…… Thanks for your kindness during our stay, the Wahoo was delicious, the surf fantastic, and everyone so friendly and relaxed.

We had a great time in Eleuthera! Your cottage is amazing and everyone in Town is so friendly! The surf was fun, the caves were creepy, and the Pirates Revenge really does make everything taste better! We hope to make it back one day.

I’ve heard hundreds of stories about all the characters down here, how amazing the water is, the conch fritters, etc. and it turned out better! The Wilson’s made our trip wonderful. There were so many firsts for me. Hope this isn’t the last time…… don’t want to leave. Loved every minute!

              Gregory Town has a music scene. Now famous Elvina's Bar located at the top of the hill from Cove House, has what the natives call a 'Rake n' Scrape' two nights a week. Really it's an open mike night but you never know who will show up. Musicians from all over the Island show up. Singer-song writer Lenny Kravitz has a studio in Gregory Town and members of his band rock the house when they are on the Island. Into music? Bring your instrument and join in!

               

              Owner info

              Year Purchased: 1973

              About the owner: My wife, Donna and I along with our two adult children spend as much time in Gregory Town as possible. We enjoy surfing, diving and fishing. Every day is an adventure. But most of all we love the healthy laid back Island life. The Bahamian people make each trip special. The are truly some of the most friendly people in the world. They make the Bahamian experience an unforgettable treasure. I think you will agree. Harry Wilson

              Why the Owner Chose Gregory Town:
              Cove House has been my family's adventure headquarters ever since my Father purchased this home in 1973. Originally a tomato cannery then one of the Islands only dry goods store then destroyed by Hurricane Betsy in the 1960's. My Father and Mother found this gem on their second vacation to Eleuthera. They always joked about finding a fixer upper. But when they took one look at this classic example of turn of the century Bahamian architecture laying in ruin beside this picturesque cove it's quiet waters shimmering they knew this was the place they had always been looking for. Thus began my family's project that has lasted more than three decades.
