Property description

Orchid Cottage is a bright and lovely Bahamian style cottage on a quaint cottage road (Old Bank's Road) steps from the Atlantic Ocean beach. It is surrounded by swaying palm trees, beautiful foliage, and tropical flowers.

Upon entering the cottage the bright purple and turquoise will take you into a world of Bahamian splendour. The open concept living room, dining room, and kitchen areas allow for your entire group to interact during cooking, eating, and family activities. The kitchen is equipped with everything you will need to prepare your meals and it also offers the convenience of a washing machine. The cathedral ceiling gives the cottage an airy feeling and a central wooden staircase leads to a loft area.

The cottage has two air conditioned bedrooms, each with a king size bed. The second bedroom can be converted into two twin beds, if needed. Between the two bedrooms is a newly remodelled three piece bathroom. The walk-in shower has sea glass, shells, and pebbles from the Atlantic Ocean embedded into the floor. The matching sink and vanity continues the theme with embedded shells and sea glass. Again, tropical colours abound. Enjoy spending time on the front deck, while cooking on the grill, or just relaxing in the deck chairs. The outside shower makes showering after a day at the beach convenient and adventurous.

If you require more space, our octagonal shaped log house with two bedrooms and a loft is also available. It has an open concept design with soaring ceilings and is located beside Orchid Cottage, but remains private due to the landscaping. This would allow your entire group extended space and privacy.

A short walk along our path will take you to one of the most amazing white sand beaches in the world. Your first sighting of the turquoise waters of the Atlantic Ocean will leave you breathless. This incredible beach can be travelled for miles. Spend your day sun tanning, shelling, exploring the reef, snorkelling, watching the dolphins, boogie boarding, or building sand castles. This is Orchid Cottage! Come share a piece of our paradise!

A stay at Orchid Cottage can be as relaxing or as fun-filled as you choose. You can walk or jog along the cottage road and stop at the Sky Beach Club for a swim, hot tub, evening dinner, or enjoy a cocktail at the swim up bar. Bring your computer and you can use their WiFi while you sit on one of the loungers. A day at Banana Beach could include sunning, boogie boarding, shelling, taking long walks, exploring, sand castle building, swimming with wild dolphins, snorkelling along the reef, or enjoying a good book in one of our beach chairs. If you decide to take a short drive into Governor's Harbour you can spend some time sightseeing. This historical town offers colourful century homes, the Bo Hengy ferry, beautiful churches, and yachts moored in Cupid's Cay. Be sure to enjoy dinner at the wonderful restaurants that Governor's Harbour has to offer such as: Tippy's, the Buccaneer Club, Cocodimama's, Sky Beach Club, or the Beach House. Watch the action in town while sitting on the outdoor deck at Da Perk Cafe as the local fishermen come to shore with their catch of grouper and lobster. On Friday nights, you must attend the fish fry at Cupid's Cay for local cuisine, rum bubbas, conch salad, and dancing in the street. If you need some more music and late night dancing, follow the crowd to Ronnie's Hideaway and dance late into the night. The kids can experience activities at the Haynes Library and take part in swimming and sailing lessons in the harbour. Your teenager can rent a surfboard from Skip and catch a wave on the Atlantic side of the island. Take your family on an adventure and travel the side roads to uncover sunken ships, deserted beaches, bat caves, cotton fields, abandoned silos, and the old military base. Governor's Harbour has so much to offer! If you need some more adventure, follow the Queen's Highway to the various settlements along the island to visit their beaches, restaurants, and festivals. Once you've been to Eleuthera, you know you'll have to come back!

Why Governor's Harbour:
We chose Orchid Cottage and Shangri-La on the island of Eleuthera, because this is the most beautiful location in the world! It is private, has an amazing beach that runs for miles, and amazing restaurants. This Bahamian out island has so much to offer.
