Recent Governor's Harbour reviews

  • well appointed home with spectacular views

    "This was a lovely house with a wall of patio doors providing a stunning view. The listing description is accurate and the photos simply don't do justice to the beauty of the overall location - the wrap-around porch and panoramic view was breathtaking. The property was clean and well-maintained. All appliances were quite new and worked well. The road is paved all the way to the house. The outdoor shower was also a very nice touch. We travelled with our two children - 6 and a half and 9 - and found the place to be suitable for children, with plenty of spots to safely introduce them to the ocean. The beach out front had everything: swimming, nice pink sand, waves (sometimes), fantastic snorkeling, lots of wildlife - the kids loved it. The property is very conveniently located and we were able to visit both the north and south of the island with ease. There were dozens of beaches on both the Atlantic and Caribbean and restaurants within 20min. drive. Our kid-friendly favorites were Airport Beach (by the house), Alabaster Beach, Twin Sisters Beach, Gaulding Cay. Nearby towns include Governor's Harbour, James Cistern, Alicetown, Rainbow Bay, Gregorytown - all were very friendly and safe. We would gladly recommend Bonefish Barbi's to anyone except people with serious mobility issues - there is a set of 30 or so steps down to the beach immediately off the back of the house - and it exceeded our expectations. The owner was extremely helpful and responsive, and the welcome package was jammed full of useful and detailed information that we used extensively during our stay."

  • just perfect!

    "This was our first trip to Eleuthera. We were traveling with 2 young children and Bleu Sky was the perfect rental for our vacation. Jon and Kelky are amazing hosts. Their home is exquisite and very well maintained. They have really thought of everything and made our trip very relaxing and hassle free. The location is perfect, right above Twin Coves, and easy driving distance to Governor's Harbor, grocery stores and other local beaches. Thanks again for letting us stay in your home. We can't wait to return to the island again soon!"

  • Amazing property, grounds, beach and snorkeling

    "I booked this property, as well as the adjoining La Bougainvillea home, as a surprise for my wife's birthday. I had many inquiries and the property manager was very accommodating and helping to arrange for the surprise. This will be a long review but will include some tips we learned about Eleuthera and the area. In short, we had 15 guests and it was AMAZING. The grounds and homes are pristine with unmatched views. I travel often and haven't experienced this level of paradise before. Homes are in excellent condition, well equipped for entertaining and cooking and the staff is very attentive. There are NO negatives with these homes or property. The beach is breathtaking and the snorkeling is amazing right off the beach. We experienced as many as 25 species of fish within yards of the beach. Kayaking just off shore brings you reefs of 40 feet deep and amazing fish and coral. We experienced all kinds of lizards, crabs, etc. We also learned how to harvest fresh coconut milk from the trees and used it every day for drinks, etc. Amazing. The only drawback was the biting sand flies (no see-ums) which are aggressive and prevalent due to nightly rains and a roving pack of wild(?) dogs that come through a few times. Dogs appear harmless and want to avoid people completely. Deep Woods OFF was the only thing that worked for bugs and it was not 100%. List of Do's: Experience the island and people, snorkel, swim at night with full moon, Governor's Harbor Fish Fry (So much fun), buy fresh fish and lobster off the ramp in Governor's Harbor, eat and drink at Tippy's (right down the road), MUCH more! Don't Eat at Unique's (bad food and service), don't go outside without generous bug spray, don't leave personal items outside the home as we had some dogs "play" with our items like flipflops, suits, etc one night (no damage). We will return to this area and hope to stay in these homes again soon!"

  • Pebbles Exactly as Described - UHH, NO, IT'S BETTER

    "My husband and I spent a week at Pebbles in Nov. 2013. We have been married for 56 years and we consider this the most relaxing vacation we have ever had. I have re-read the description for Pebbles and it describes it absolutely correctly. However, the week we spent there is actually indescribable. We will never forget it. Pebbles was perfect for the two of us - large, comfortable furniture, great sleeping bed, The view was beautiful. We kept the living room sliding doors open so we always had a breeze and the sound of the ocean; we kept the AC going in the bedroom. The yards were lovely. The patio was partially shaded during most of the day. There wear a gazillion stars at night, incredibly bright. We didn't see anyone on "our" beach the whole week but we did see some footprints. A couple of things you need to know - 1) the password for the Wi Fi in the cottage. 2) Your local call won't go through if you dial the area code as we have to do in our home area. We enjoyed Banks Road Deli, Tippys, Beach House, Buchaneer which were very close to Pebbles, but not close enough to walk for us so we were glad we had a rental car. The owner, the housekeeper and the gentlemen we rented the the car from were all very friendly, personable, and helpful. We've been home for two weeks and if I close my eyes, I can still hear the sound of the ocean and feel the ocean breeze. I heartily recommend Pebbles."
