Governor's Harbour cottage description

Belmont Cottage is a beautifully restored and appointed 19th century cottage, perched high on a hillside with spectacular views of the Harbour and Cupid’s Cay. During the recent restoration, the original historic architecture was lovingly preserved while accommodating the needs of modern luxury living, including state-of-the-art fixtures and electronics.

Belmont Cottage consists of a master bedroom with king-size bed, a modern luxurious en-suite bathroom with extra large shower, and a living area equipped with a mini-bar and furnished with antiques. Amenities include refrigerator, microwave, flat screen TV, air conditioning, ceiling fan, and wireless internet. There is also a separate outdoor patio with a spectacular sea view. Belmont Cottage shares a pool with two other houses.

Belmont Cottage is part of the Squires Estate collection of beautifully restored 19th century homes on the hill above Governors Harbour, furnished with antiques from around the world. The décor and level of finish will delight the most discrimminating world traveler. Our manager will greet you upon arrival and be available to assist you as needed. She can arrange for daily housekeeping, a private chef, or a car rental (extra charges apply), and provide advice about island activities. Other staff at Squires Estate include a fulltime gardener and housekeepers. Laundry and ironing services are provided on the premises at no charge. Belmont Cottage can be combined with other historic homes and cottages in the Squires Estate collection for larger groups.

The town of Governors Harbour, a three-minute walk down the hill, 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, 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.

Walking over the hill in the other direction takes you to French Leave Beach, the finest beach on the island and one of the great beaches of the Caribbean. By foot, it’s about 10 minutes to French Leave, a mile-long crescent of pink sand which is literally deserted most of the time. Most visitors to Eleuthera rent a car, because the island is rural and spread out, and a car is the only practical way to get around. By car, Belmont Cottage is just a minute from French Leave Beach.

Free Flights: A stay of four nights or longer entitles you to one free round-trip ticket from Nassau to Eleuthera. Other promotions may also be available.

                          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. You can rent power boats, sailboats, sea kayaks, bikes. You can have a charter captain take you out for excursions of various types. 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 Belmont Cottage, and experience all our island has to offer.
