About the Property

1Studio, 11 Bath, Sleeps 27

Lush Life is the best house on the best beach in the best town on Eleuthera. It is the most popular vacation rental on the island, a property with an ideal layout for multiple families, reunions, and small weddings.

This luxurious beachfront compound is located directly on the pristine, pink-sand French Leave Beach, which has been ranked among the top 20 beaches of the world. There are just a few other houses on this mile-long beach. It is usually deserted. Lush Life was the setting for the 2010 Tyler Perry/Janet Jackson film, ''Why Did I Get Married Too'', which was shot on location in the house and on its beach, pool, and grounds. Lush Life has a total of four structures with 9 bedrooms (10 bedrooms with optional Gardener's Cottage), 10 baths, 4 kitchens, beautifully landscaped grounds, and a large heated pool. Full maid service twice a week is included, as is a nearby caretaker. Other staff including a selection of cooks and chefs, are available upon request.

The proximity of the compound to the water, accentuated by multiple seating areas on and almost on the beach, as well as a new, large “Sky Box” built over a dune, offer unparalleled opportunities to drink in the beauty of one of the most stunning beaches in the World.

Situated in the prestigious Banks Road, where Governors Harbour’s great estates are located, Lush Life is less than a mile from Tippy's famous beachfront restaurant and bar, the Banks Road Deli, Da Perk, the new “1648” restaurant, and the 360-year-old town of Governor’s Harbour.

The houses at Lush Life were exquisitely designed, and built to the most exacting modern standards of workmanship. They feature Brazilian hardwood floors, cypress cedar ceilings, custom tile, electronic mini-split air-conditioning systems, and decor by one of the Bahamas' premier interior designers. The home is continuously upgraded and maintained to the highest standards that an out island setting allows.

Lush Life is rented to just one group at a time. The compound consists of the following structures:

The Main House: This magnificent Bahamian Colonial mansion has 4 king bedrooms and 5 bathrooms, and sleeps 8. The large great room, hall, formal dining room, and expansive veranda look directly out upon French Leave Beach, one of the most beautiful in the Caribbean. The extraordinary kitchen would satisfy any master chef, and is designed to handle the largest dinner parties. It is equipped with two large refrigerators, giant freezer, gas range, and more.

The Guest Cottage: This 2-bedroom cottage overlooks the pool and has ocean views. It has a full kitchen and three baths, and is connected to the Bunk Room and Studio Apartment.

The Bunk Room: This structure, connected to the Guest Cottage on one side and the Studio Apartment on the other, consists of a large bedroom and private bathroom. The bedroom is furnished with 3 bunk beds and 3 trundle beds, sleeping up to 9 children.

The Studio Apartment: This cozy cottage with views across the pool at the beach and ocean, is linked to the Bunk Room. It has a large living/bedroom area with a four-poster bed, a kitchen, and a private bathroom.

The Pool Cabana: This bright one-bedroom house is on the beach and beside the pool. It has a king bedroom, a large living room, and a full kitchen and bath.

The Gardener's Cottage: The optional Gardener’s Cottage is a full size-studio with a king bed, full bath and kitchen. The caretaker of Lush Life normally resides in the Gardener’s Cottage, which is located near the entrance from the street, separated from the rest of the property. If you need the additional space for your party, the caretaker can relocate during your stay and make the Gardener’s Cottage available. An additional charge will apply.

Lush Life comes with everything you need to enjoy your stay on Eleuthera including flat-screen satellite TVs with DVD players, high-speed internet with WIFI, desktop computer, free VOIP telephone line, books, and games. Outdoor amenities include a heated pool, gas grill, kayak, surfboards, and an outd
