Governor's Harbour house description

Nestling in the desirable 'up-hill' community of the historic settlement of Governor's Harbour, Low Cay (“low key”) is a discreet and delightful cottage residence, recently renovated to a unique standard of contemporary elegance.

Re-created in 2012 by its British owners as a stylish and romantic retreat, this one bedroomed hideaway offers couples a taste of local life combined with a five star European standard of interior design, with WiFi and air conditioning throughout.

The main living space combines a gorgeous open plan, well-appointed kitchen with the highest quality utensils and equipment and an extensive polished concrete worktop and breakfast bar, and a spacious and elegant lounge with comfortable sofas, bespoke driftwood table, LED TV, a Bowers & Wilkins 'Zeppelin' iPod dock, a hand-made polished concrete occasional table and luxurious expanses of floating, translucent linen curtain.

The sense of space and luxury is enhanced by the wonderfully worked full height ceiling and versatile lighting design, which give a scale to the residence that its charming exterior keeps modestly hidden.

The bathroom delivers a sense of intimate luxury with its lavishly sized walk-in shower with sand blasted glass screen, hand-made driftwood console with twin basins and natural light filtered through obscured glass windows.

The bedroom features a locally designed and constructed super-queen sized (66'W) bedstead and side tables, with an individually commissioned US box spring mattress.
Storage is provided in the built-in wardrobe and additional stylish shelving.

Through double French doors, the bedroom gives on to the rear covered porch, a large and beautifully furnished room with a delightful aspect over the secluded terraced, landscaped garden, perfect for early morning breakfast or evening cocktails, while to the side of the house an enclosed hot water shower offers a refreshing al fresco bathing alternative.

At the front of the house, the full width terrace with extended sun deck gives panoramic views of the historic Cupid's Cay and spectacular Caribbean sunsets - the Caribbean is 250 yards away from the house. The world famous French Leave beach is a one minute car ride away, over the hill on the eastern, Atlantic side of the island.

Situated as it is in the center of the community, all amenities are within walking distance. Charming local cafes, grocery and liquor stores are no more than three minutes walk away. Local fishermen (one is our next door neighbor), sell lobster, conch & grouper down the road every afternoon at the water's edge. The legendary Governor's Harbour Friday night fish fry is a four minute stroll, as is the historic Haynes Library, cultural hub of the local community.
