Governor's Harbour estate description

Welcome to Bonefish Bay, a private beachfront estate on ten acres with a heated oceanfront pool and a deep-water boat dock and boat ramp. Bonefish Bay is secluded, but located less than two miles from the village of Governors Harbour, with its stores, restaurants, banks, and services. Bonefish Bay has over 4000 square feet of living space, including a private guest cottage. An abundance of glass provides extensive and unobstructed beach, ocean, and sunset views from every major room. A short set of stone steps takes you down to your small and private beach, perfect for wading and swimming. The estate’s waters are teeming with marine life and offer excellent snorkeling, swimming, and fishing.

The elegant Spanish Colonial main house features a large living room with a wall of glass looking out over the ocean. The modern kitchen, with a beautiful ocean view, features granite throughout and is fully equipped with a gas range and oven, refrigerator, dishwasher, microwave, and separate laundry room with washer and dryer. The spacious kitchen has bar-chair seating for four, looking out at the ocean. There is also a large separate dining room.

The stunning master bedroom suite, furnished with a king bed, has a a private patio and a direct ocean view through a wall of glass. It is connected to a master bath where you can enjoy ocean views while you luxuriate in the jacuzzi tub or glass-enclosed shower. One guest bedroom, with queen bed, has direct ocean views; the other has a double bed and a garden view, with an indirect ocean view. The three main bedrooms have full en suite bathrooms. The fourth bedroom, a converted den, has a double bed and a half bath which also serves the living areas. The living room and dining room are also equipped with a sofa beds. The house features a separate, fully equipped office with a desk and lovely ocean views through a large sliding glass door.

If you like to take in the sea breeze or bask in the sun, you’ll love the grand patio, just off the living room, with its beautiful ocean and sunset views. The patio is elegantly furnished with a wrought-iron dining set for outdoor dining, as well as a lounge area with an outdoor sofa and chairs. It is equipped with a gas grill for outdoor cooking. The kitchen and two bedrooms have smaller private patios.

The Guest Cottage, which offers direct ocean vews from every room, is separated from the main house for extra privacy. It has a queen bed and a full bath. It also has an oceanfront patio, a particularly delightful spot. If you choose not to use the Guest Cottage, it will remain empty during your stay. It will not be rented to another guest.

The private boat dock is located beside the guest cottage. Step onto your boat and enjoy spectacular fishing, diving, and cruising on some the hemisphere’s most beautiful waters. If you don’t choose to bring your own boat, we can arrange a boat rental for you. The estate also features a full-size boat ramp and a waterfront gazebo. In addition to its private beach, Bonefish Bay has 1000’ of frontage along a private peninsula with excellent snorkeling, fishing, and exploring by land or sea.

Bonefish Bay is fully equipped with central air, high speed internet, WIFI and Ipod dock. There is a flatscreen cable TV in the living room with Apple TV and a flat-screen TV with a DVD player and Apple TV in the master bedroom.

The town of Governors Harbour, a mile away, has a charming 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.

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. We hope you will enjoy our Bonefish Bay Estate, and experience all our island has to offer.
