Governor's Harbour house description

Med Point is a ROMANTIC, SECLUDED ONE-BEDROOM OCEANFRONT BEACHHOUSE, located on Casuarina Beach and just 100' from Club Med (French Leave) Beach. No other properies are between it and world-famous Club Med (French Leave) Beach. It is a short stroll to Twin Coves Beach and its superb snorkeling reef, where the movie 'Three' was filmed. Med Point Beach House is like a lighthouse guarding the north end of Club Med Beach, which is the loveliest and safest beach in Eleuthera. In addition, we are only a 1 mile stroll to the centre of town.

Med Point beach house has a huge 1100 square foot teak wrap-around deck facing the beach and ocean, and all the modern conveniences, with a full kitchen, living room with dining area, wifi and large sliding glass doors on both sides facing the ocean to maximize your viewing pleasure. It has a KING BED, plus 2 day beds in the living room, and a dining table facing the ocean.

The 1 storey house was NEWLY RENOVATED in 2009 by Governors Harbour's premier designer, with wood floors, Brazilian cherry doors, and white wainscot accents. The king wooden platform bed and sofas/daybeds were specially created for Med Point, which has a blue and white theme. Comforts include 400 thread-count sheets and Thomas by Rosenthal china. Step outside the glass doors, and you will see ocean spreading away as far as you can see. (Description cont'd at bottom of ad)


Further Details: There are miles of deserted beaches on both sides, with the famous pink sand French Leave Beach (also known as Club Med Beach, for the Club Med that used to be there) next door. If you love the ocean, this place is it, because you will see, smell, and hear the ocean 24 hours a day. Because we are on a point, you can walk the 1 mile to the town of Governor's Harbour, along a sandy road through French Leave Beach.

The drive to Med Point, takes you for about half a mile, on a sandy lane through Club Med Beach, looking out to sea and giant cacti and palms. You will enjoy this splendid view of nature every day, as you go into town.

The famous bar/restaurant Tippy's is close, and there are upscale restaurants such as Sky Beach Club and the Beachhouse, (the latter only 15 minute walk down the beach), as well as charming takeouts in Governor's Harbour.

Med Point is also close to Tear Coat Cay, a small island offshore, where you can snorkel; also close to lots of reefs for other snorkeling. The water is gin clear, 100 feet of visibility, and we have seen parrot fish, groupers, rays and other exotic fish. The water is 75 to 88 degrees fahrenheit.

French Leave (Club Med) Beach stretches southward for 1 mile: we are at the northern edge. Casuarina Beach, stretches north of us for another mile, and then Twin Cove beach stretches north for another mile or so. All of this can be walked along wide sandy pink beaches with excellent shelling. Or you can jog along the sandy path that is Old Banks Road and have wide vistas of white surf.

The various gardens have coconut and royal palms, hibiscus and oleander and sea lettuce. We have a gardener, Emanuel, who attends to the plants and the beach. Walk off one stairway on the deck and you will stand on a gorgeous coral garden and see the nearby blowhole that spouts 30 feet in the air. Walk off the other steps past hibiscus and palms and geckos onto Casuarina Bay Beach. Turtles nest at night on our beach. Sunbathe on beach loungers and follow the sun around, through the day, on two wide decks.

The house is decorated modernly, in blue and white with great attention to feng shui. Two walls of the house are glass, so that you are bathing in views of blue ocean and surf. There are two huge daybeds/couches for lounging, and a rocking chair to plan for retirement. The kitchen is new, and comfortably supplied, for cooking as you stare at the ocean. Then dine at a beautiful wooden table, staring at the ocean nearby, virtually at your feet. At night, go out on the deck and get a fabulously clear view of the stars. You will hear the ocean all day and night.

French Leave Beach, which you can step onto, is the most famous and romantic beach in Eleuthera. It is very wide, and the water is shallow for several feet, and 25 feet out is terrific snorkelling. Body surfing is fun on windy days in shallow water. Or you can just frolic. Once you've stepped out and dried off, walk a mile to the Beach House Bar, on the beach, and enjoy a cappuccino.

Most people who walk by Med Point, express regret that they are staying elsewhere! They tell us that they would like to spend their next holiday at Med Point.

Christine, the caretaker, can make a caribbean meal and banana bread, and bring coconut water on request.
