Banks Rd Governor's Harbour, Eleuthera XXXXX Bahamas

Welcome to The Boat House, a delightful and quirky three-bedroom house. The Boat House is located on the Banks Road, the premier location on Eleuthera, just one mile from the town of Governors Harbour. It is 50 yards from world-famous French Leave Beach, a pristine beach renowned for its pink sand and turquoise water. French Leave Beach is over a mile long, with only five houses on the entire length.

Guests of The Boat House may rent just the upstairs, which is a spacious and complete one-bedroom apartment, or the entire house, which includes two more bedrooms and bathrooms downstairs. Boat House is rented to ONLY one group at a time. Unused bedrooms are locked off.

The upstairs of the Boat House contains the living room, dining area, kitchen, and one queen bedroom. It has beautiful views of French Leave Beach and the Atlantic Ocean from every room. The large sundeck has expansive ocean views as well as views of the pond behind.

The upstairs also has a full bath and a laundry closet with washer and dryer. The downstairs contains a second queen bedroom and the Bunk Room, which sleeps 8 in three bunk beds and two trundle beds. Both downstairs bedrooms have full en-suite bathrooms. Each downstairs bedroom can be locked off if it’s not needed. The downstairs bedrooms are accessed from their own first-floor entrance; they are not connected internally to the upstairs apartment.

Amenities at the Boat House include air conditioning, WIFI, satellite TV. and an outdoor gas grill. The Boat House now has a new full size refrigerator. Our housekeeper, Doreene, will come by once during the week to clean the house for you. If you would like her to clean more often, or to cook for you, she will be happy to do that for a modest charge.

Cross a small road and walk down a short sand path and you are on French Leave Beach, an idyllic, mile-long, crescent-shaped beach rated one of the best in the world by USA Today. There are only five houses on the entire length of this spectacular beach. The surf is very mild, protected by a large reef system that parallels the shore. The water on French Leave Beach is literally crystal clear: with no rivers or streams on the island, Eleuthera’s seas are free of sediment and among the clearest in the world.

Tippy’s famous beachside restaurant is a mile away (you can walk the beach to get there). Other upscale restaurants within easy driving distance include Cocodimama and Pascal's at Sky Beach Club. The town of Governors Harbour, a mile away, has a charming collection of 19th century homes and churches overlooking its historic harbor. The recently restored Haynes Library, which dates from 1897, hosts a weekly coffee hour for foreign residents and tourists.

The base rate for The Boat House is for the upstairs one bedroom apartment for two guests. There is an additional charge of $30/night for each additional guest in excess of 2. If you have 3 or 4 guests total, one of the downstairs bedrooms (your choice) will be included in the rental. If you have 5 or more guests total, both downstairs bedrooms will be included in the rental.
The Boat House is rented to ONLY ONE group at time. Unused bedrooms are simply locked off.

    The rental property was comfortable and clean! This was a great place to relax at the end of a long day out. Edgar was waiting for us when we arrived, and was easy to contact throughout our stay. We would be happy to stay here again and recommend this house to family and friends.

    Hi folks,

    All good at the boathouse with excellent location.

    Just need to work on the shower which is falling apart. An outdoor shower would be ideal.

    The outside furniture could be arranged a little better upon arrival for a better welcome.

    Overall quite good.
