Governor's Harbour villa description

Located a couple of miles south of Governor's Harbour on the Atlantic coast of Eleuthera, looking out onto one of the most beautiful beaches in the Bahamas.

Relax in the warm waters of the Venus Pool, visible only at low tide. Walk for miles on the cool pink sand. Build fires from driftwood and cook under the stars. The house is at the end of a long private driveway.

Decorated in true Caribbean colours, nearly all the rooms look out to sea.

Nearby are some of the best restaurants on the island. Cocodimama is great for sundowners and Mate and Jenny's has real island atmosphere. Cigatoo has a swimming pool and a tennis court. Dolce Vita has one of the best chefs in the Bahamas, Paulo! Just down the beach is the famous Tippy's! Organic vegetables available locally.

Although it is advisable to rent a car, it is not essential as there is a reliable taxi service, which can be booked in advance. Exploring the island is part of the Eleuthera adventure or a day trip to Harbour Island.

Amenities: The Main House has four bedrooms with en-suite bathrooms. One king size bed, 2 queens and 2 single beds. The children's room has 2 daybeds and shares a bathroom. There is a fully equipped kitchen with microwave, blender, coffee machine, and dishwasher. Linens and towels are included. Washing machine. Telephone for local and incoming calls (phone cards available for long distance calls at the airport or the Batelco office in Governor's Harbour).

There is a fax machine and Satellite Internet access. VCR, DVD and CD players, along with a good library of books, videos and DVD's. Backgammon and other games also in the house.

Laundry lines hung discreetly behind some pandana bushes! A wonderful house for family fun or groups of friends who want to enjoy each others company yet retain their own space and privacy.

Activities: Walking for miles on the beach. Swimming, snorkeling and fishing. There is a pool and tennis courts at Cigatoo Resorts just down the road. Bicycles are available for teen-agers and adults. There are several excellent restaurants within a 20 minute radius by car. The nearest is Tippy's, which is just down the beach. Enjoy the casual atmosphere of the island and the delicious food! Dolce Vita is run by one of the best chefs in the Bahamas!

The town of Governor's Harbour, 2 miles from On the Rocks, has all necessary shops, banks, travel agent, grocery stores, gift shops and restaurants. It is picturesque and unspoiled. There are no large hotels or casinos on Eleuthera. It is a beautifully quiet and peaceful island. There are many beaches to explore.

Harbour Island is an hour to the north and makes a great day trip. Lunch at the famous Pink Sands resort, scuba diving at Valentine's Dive Centre and renting a golf cart to ride around the island and enjoy the beautiful architecture of the old Bahamian houses dating back to the 18th century.

There is also a guest house available, please see VRBO#286690 for details.

Keywords: Ocean facing, direct beach access, private, well laid out and comfortable family house.
