Governor's Harbour house description

Welcome to Villa Atlantic Sunrise, a large and tranquil beachfront property with 250 feet of beachfront on a beautiful and deserted pink sand beach. Villa Atlantic Sunrise is ideal for anyone who likes the feeling of privacy in a beautiful ocean and beach landscape. Help and assistance is close if needed, but you will not be disturbed if you don't want to be. You can watch the sunrise directly from your bed!

This spacious house (2600 square feet) features an expansive great room with spectacular beach and ocean views from the living area, dining area, and kitchen. The living area features a 10-foot sliding glass wall looking out at the ocean. The room is furnished with a teak dining set, a rattan couch set, and a rocking chair. There is also a sofa bed in the living room that can sleep two.

Atlantic Sunrise has a large open kitchen with a countertop facing the great room. The kitchen is fully equipped with a refrigerator/freezer, glass-top range, coffee machine, blender, toaster, microwave, ice crusher, blender, shaker, pots and pans of different sizes, and more. The counter tops are elegantly finished with French tiles.

Villa Atlantic Sunrise has two bedrooms, both with views of the beach and ocean. The king-bed master suite, like the great room, features a 10-foot sliding glass wall looking out at the ocean. The guest bedroom has a queen bed. Both bedrooms have large full baths with double sinks and showers. The master suite also has a luxurious over-sized tub.

The oceanfront veranda is ideal for watching the sunrise, the sea, or the stars. It is roofed for shade and furnished with a teak dining set. There is an outdoor shower beside it. Walk off your veranda and across your yard and right onto a miles-long deserted pink sand beach.

On the opposite side of the house, the back veranda faces the sunset, and is furnished with a smaller dining set. Palm trees in the garden also provide shade, if you like to relax outside in your chair and read a book under a palm.

The house was designed to catch the sea breezes and bring them through the rooms, keeping the house comfortable and breezy year-round. In addition to air conditioning in all bedrooms, all rooms are equipped with ceiling fans for further air circulation. The house is equipped with a washing machine. Your clothes will dry quickly and naturally on the clothes line in the ocean breeze. There is charcoal grill outside for open-air grilling, and a dining set on the ocean-view veranda for outdoor dining. The house comes with two hammocks. Villa Atlantic Sunrise is a perfect spot for hammock time with the sound of the ocean to put you to sleep.

We provide internet access (wireless connection throughout the house), telephone (for calls within Eleuthera), radio, and projector for videos and movies. Should you wish to hear your own music, or watch TV or movies with your computer, just connect your laptop with an USB port to our box system and projector. We also have speakers for music. The house does not have a conventional TV.

Villa Atlantic Sunrise is conveniently located 15 minutes from Governor's Harbour and 5 minutes from James Cistern. One of the nicest Caribbean side beaches, Alabaster Bay, is less than 5 minutes away by car. There you have quiet and shallow water and can watch the sunset. An Italian restaurant, Cocodimama, is located directly on that beach, ideal for enjoying a sunset dinner. Sky Beach Club's excellent restaurant with poolside service all day long is less than 10 minutes away.

The town of Governors Harbour has a charming collection of 19th century homes and churches overlooking its historic harbor. Buy fresh fish and lobster every afternoon from fisherman at the town dock, or visit the recently restored Haynes Library, which dates from 1897, for the weekly coffee hour for foreign residents and tourists. . Governors Harbour has grocery stores, restaurants, liquor stores, two banks with ATMs, a bakery, gift shops, 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.

James Cistern, just 5 minutes in the other direction, has an excellent grocery store, a gas station, and two restaurants. Fresh seafood is often available at the town dock. The Rainbow Inn, another 5 minutes to the north, is the top-rated restaurant on the island, famous for its steaks and fresh vegetables from its organic garden. The Rainbow Inn has live entertainment several nights a week, including occasional appearances from the island’s favorite musical celebrity.

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 Atlantic Sunrise Villa and experience all our island has to offer.

                              About: I am German working as university professor, at the moment in Mexico City; my husband is a school teacher in Germany.

                              Why Governor's Harbour:
                              Me and my husband have always liked the ocean. Early in the 90s we discovered this island that was at that time only rarely visited by tourists. We liked the long, quiet beaches and decided to buy a property there and had our own house built there.
