Recent Governor's Harbour reviews

  • 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."

  • 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."

  • 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!"

  • 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."
