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."

  • spettacolare e stupenda

    "Sorry for Italian language, but you have already some reviews in English which are wonderful, and I can't do nothing but agree 100%! Here the review: Premetto di essere arrivato con la mia fidanzata e la nostra bambina di 1 anno dopo 3 notti a Miami e 2 ad Harbour Island, con l'idea di sposarmi alla villa, per cui il mio soggiorno è legato ad un evento (per me) assolutamente piacevole. Eravamo in compagnia di un'altra coppia di amici (con bimbo di 1,5 anni) e un'altra adulta, per cui avevamo un sacco di spazio a disposizione (vi sono 6 camere con altrettanti bagni ed un salone enorme completo di TV - mai usata, 1 iMac, apple Tv, Impianto sonoro con cucina a vista). Ryan (property manager) è stato da subito molto attento a soddisfare ogni mia richiesta e rispondere a quesiti/dubbi, e l'ho apprezzato molto. In realtà la villa ha già tutto quello che volete: è in posizione isolata, comunque facilmente raggiungibile con strada asfaltata, con un magnifico erboso pieno di piante tropicali. Vi è una scaletta in legno che porta alla spiaggia, con un mare divino, turchese, cristallino, nonostante sia nella parte atlantica dell'isola. Il mare è stato calmo, a volte piatto a volte con onde non più alte di 1 metro. E' soggetto a maree, quando vi è la marea bassa la spiaggia è ampia come da cartoline caraibiche. Dinanzi alla spiaggia (a partire da 30 metri dalla riva) vi sono scogli dove fare snorkeling (io non l'ho fatto) e a circa 100-150 metri i vicini di casa hanno pescato 4 aragoste! La villa ha una vista fantastica, ti svegli la mattina guardando l'alba, con un panorama mozzafiato. Non ho visto cani randagi (segnalati in altre recensioni). La donna delle pulizie (Henrietta) è simpatica e professionale (viene 2 volte a settimana). L'unica nota negativa (indipendente dalla villa ma comune a tutti i Caraibi, assolutamente soggettivo e molto stagionale) è la presenza di piccoli mosquitos (no-see ums, sandflies) molto fastidiosi e temibili quando arriva la sera. Su consiglio di altri recensori, abbiamo portato il Deep Woods Off (che aiuta). Alla fine ho solo aspetti superlativi per questa villa, ed avendo cercato diverse ville che potessero andar bene per ospitare un piccolo matrimonio, questa è quella con miglior rapporto qualità prezzo. PS. Ho cercato altre spiagge (non potevo arrivare a Lighthouse beach perché non disponevo di un 4x4) ma la spiaggia della villa è restata la migliore."

  • Excellent

    "Excellent lodging, great views, beautiful grounds, fantastic location! Ms. Jean was such an elegant lady and gracious host and full of information and historic tales. I would recommend to anyone! We loved it. We spent the last 4 days of an 11 day trip to the Bahamas and wished we had spent them all at this location. Don't miss the Friday night fish fry, and the bakery with fresh breads and sweets only a 2 block walk."

  • A great home away from home

    "My cousin, my 1 year old and my 3 year old stayed at this property for 9 days. I would highly recommend it. The house itself is extremely well appointed, and the pictures don't do it justice. There is an enormous yard, a shaded front/side porch and a back veranda for eating. Inside the house, the kitchen has everything that you could need, the ceilings are high and it is quite spacious. One warning: light sleepers beware! The roosters are LOUD and start as early as 3am. Also, the house is old so on windy nights there can be a bit of rattling. That said, after one VERY windy night where things were rattling all over the place, I mentioned this difficulty to Angelika, the property manager. She had somebody there within hours to batten down the hatches. Speaking of Angelika--she could not have been more helpful or responsive. She saved the day for us on several occasions, always making it seem as though we weren't being a nuisance. Really great customer service. The house was a short walk into town, but a longer walk (about 20 min) to the beach. Most people rent cars, which we did for 2 of the 9 days. We got a good workout every day, that's for sure. French leave beach is lovely, once you get past the seaweed. We were often on that amazing beach alone. Crazy. One thing that we didn't come across until the end, which would have been good to know in advance: there is a really big grocery store with tons of different kinds of foods at Rock Sound. My cousin is a vegan, and there wasn't so much at the Governor's Harbour grocery stores. Nick, the owner, was very easy to deal with throughout the booking process, and was helpful in providing us with information."
