Governor's Harbour house description

Miss Ruby is one of the newest on the island and is located on the Bank's Road Governor's Harbour with spectacular views of the dramatic coastline.
This 4 acre property is located 10 minutes walking distance to Tippy's restaurant, arguably the best on the island, and a 2 minute walk from one of the most beautiful 'pink' beaches on Eleuthera. Shops and amenities are also within a short driving distance.
Read this brief independent review.
http://700experience.com/2013/11/05/7-on-7-miss-ruby-myrtles-cottage/
The property consists of a two level main house and a guest 'Myrtle' cottage to be rented with the house not separately.
Miss Ruby is surrounded by a lush garden which is home to many fruit trees, Bougainvillea, Hibiscus, Aloe and Coconut palms. Those are just a few of the plants that grace this serene property. The 'salt water' pool serves both Miss Ruby House and Myrtle's Cottage. The pool deck is expansive and raised with views of rolling palmetto trees and coconut palms as far as the eye can see.
Both are newly appointed featuring aircon and the finest of facilities including WIFI.


House Features: Miss Ruby is exclusive in every detail featuring traditional Bahamian architectural style while boasting unique contemporary furnishings, white hardwood floors and high ceilings. The house has two levels with two large bedrooms, a wrap around upper terrace and the quaint separate Myrtle Cottage. Both houses feature tastefully decorated modern interiors and top of the line furnishings, amenities and appliances. The modern airy kitchen is fully equipped with top of the line stainless steel appliances (refrigerator, dishwasher and oven). Both houses feature air conditioning, WIFI wireless internet, hi-fi stereo, cordless telephone, DVD player with USB and TV screen on which to watch your movies or downloads.

Along with the saltwater pool, perfect for those like me allergic to chlorine, for those who like to partake there is a fully adjustable basketball hoop next to the pergola car porch. For the kids, in the trees at the rear of the house there are swings and climbing ropes.

Vegetable Garden : All around the property in close proximity to the house you will find Squash, Carrots, Melons, Tomatoes, Zucchini, Corn, Sapadilla, Avocado, Mangoes, Chillies, Radishes and Beetroot and no doubt other things I have forgotten to mention. Just ask the gardener what's in season?


Both properties are supported by a LPG generator which comes in handy out here on out island Eleuthera......trust me.

Separate Utility Room - Beneath Cottage: A Extra Large Whirlpool washer and dryer are available for use in the utility beneath the cottage
