Recent Governor's Harbour reviews

  • 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!"

  • One of the most wonderful vacation we had in years

    "Many reviewers say that Pebble's is paradise. Well, I don't believe anything on earth can be like paradise but Pebble's is probably the closest thing there is to it. The cottage is perfectly located by a wonderful, almost desert beach, not far from the little town of Governor's harbor and not far from a few good restaurants. It is clean, comfortable and has everything we needed while we were there. As for Eleuthera, it is a quiet island with many beautiful beaches and a few nice places to visit. People are welcoming and friendly. One thing is sure: we will return."

  • Great week at La Bougainvillea

    "My wife and two young children, and myself, just returned from 8 nights at La Bougainvillea. It's a great property on a quiet beach, with a huge backyard. The weather was a bit cooler than average while we were there, so we didn't take advantage of the pool, but it's nice and very close to the house. We had a wonderful concierge, Shorlette Williams, helping us during our entire trip. She had the house stocked with everything we had asked for when we arrived, and she arranged for two wonderful babysitters for our little ones. The only real drawback to the house is that you have to go outside to access each different portion of the house. This wouldn't have been much of an issue at all, but the weather was cool in the mornings especially, so it took a little adjusting. Just a quirky design, not really a negative. We were also able to tour their sister property next door, 7 Palms, it's a beautiful home...a bit more modern than Bougainvillea, and twice as many bedrooms. All in all, a fantastic, centrally located villa that's well taken care of. If you've never been to Eleuthera, this is a great location to check out, as it's easy to head north or south on any given day, and see different parts of the island. Thanks for a great week!"

  • Perfect cottage

    "We just got back from a wonderful vacation in the Folly guest house ! Perfect location on the island, just minutes away from all the best beaches. Brian was great and responsive to book with, and when we got there, Edgar was amazing. He picked us up in our rental car, and was available 24x7 for our every need ! The cottage itself is adorable and had wonderful comfy beds, plenty of towels, bathroom very clean, and the Kitchen was great and well equipped! It was super nice to have really fast WIFI. The cable TV went out a lot, but I think it's better to watch the beautiful sunsets anyway! I would definitely go back, but this time for a lot longer visit. 1 week is not enough time to explore all that the island has to offer."
