Great House!

  • 5 of 5

We really enjoyed staying at the house. Everything that was described about the house was above expectations. It was literally steps away from an amazing beach! I would definitely recommend this house to everyone who wants to stay in Governors Harbour, Eleuthera.

Owner's Response: We are really happy that you enjoyed staying at the house! We very much appreciate your recommendation for our home in Governors Harbour. So many houses advertised are not actually in Governors Harbour proper and we pride ourselves on being steps away from one of the best beaches on Eleuthera and just a mile from the town and some of the best restaurants on the Island. We'd love to have you return so just let us know if and when you decide to visit Eleuthera again and we are here to help make it another great vacation!! Thank you and take care, Michele and David

We were very impressed with the house and it’s location!

  • 5 of 5

We enjoyed the vacation immensely. Everything you need or could think of needing is provided and then some. Close to town, the beach and very good restaurants...Tilly’s, French Leave Resort and the Buccaneer Club. If there is a problem, it is quickly solved. Our internet went out one day and I called Wallace, the property manager, and he told me how to fix it. A quick reboot. We looking forward to our next visit. Thank you David and Michele for everything!
