Governor's Harbour house description

The Yellow House is a large and elegant home completed in 2005 and designed in the Bahamian Colonial style. It is located at the top of the hill in Governors Harbour, in a small community of homes called Governor’s Estate. The Yellow House’s living areas open to gracious wrap-around verandas and a private swimming pool, offering the serenity of island life.

The first floor features the great room and dining room decorated with understated sophistication. The kitchen is large and modern, featuring stainless steel appliances and a custom-designed island – perfect for entertaining. The first floor also has a powder room, a guest bedroom with an en-suite bathroom, and a separate laundry room with washer and dryer.

The Yellow House has a total of four bedrooms, one on the first floor with twin beds, and three on the second floor, one with twin beds and two with king beds. Both sets of twin beds can be converted to king beds. A private balcony from one of the king-sized rooms offers breathtaking views of the Atlantic Ocean. The twin guest room and second king-sized room share a balcony and views of lovely lush landscaping. All bedrooms have en suite bathrooms.

On the roof, a large deck provides a spacious setting for spectacular sunsets and sweeping views of the ocean. The large first-floor wrap-around veranda includes a gas grill and outdoor dining area.

Yellow House has cable TV and WI-FI internet as well as a flat screen TV and multi-region DVD player – this means you can bring your children’s favorite DVDs from anywhere in the world and they will play here. There is also a large DVD library. The house is fully air conditioned.

.The island of 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. 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.

                              Location

                              Yellow House is located on a hilltop agove the Village of Governors Harbour. It's a short 3-minute walk down the hill to the town. Down the hill in the other direction is secluded French Leave Beach, a spectacular, mile-long, pink-sand beach considered one of the finest in the Bahamas.

                              Governors harbour has a lovely 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, 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.

                              Other Activities: shopping, boating, kayaking, wildlife viewing
