Wykee Estates Governors Harbour, Eleuthera XXXXX Bahamas

Welcome to Bahama Mama! This pristine condition five-bedroom home has constant sea breezes and ocean views in every direction. In addition to a spacious living room, 800' screened-in porch, big sun deck, and 3 bathrooms, there is a huge game/TV room and two other cozy TV and reading areas in different parts of the house.

The lower level has the big game/TV room with a multi-game table (air hockey, mini pool, etc), a full-size ping-pong table, TV, DVD player, and lots of board games. Additionally there is a large bedroom with two twin beds (and two trundle beds) that can sleep four children or be pushed together for a king. This bedroom has a full en-suite bathroom. There's also a pack n play.

The main floor has a gorgeous corner living/dining room with an open, 'chef's dream of a kitchen' that is fully stocked and has 4 bar stools. There are five French doors leading out to the huge screened porch. The indoor dining table seats 8 and the outdoor dining area can seat 12 plus.

Off the screened porch is a vast sundeck with a full-size gas grill and breathtaking views. Also on the second floor is a master-size bedroom with king bed, washer/dryer closet, and a full bathroom off the hall.

The top floor has three bedrooms all with fabulous ocean views. (One queen, one king, and the third with two double beds.) The top floor also has a full bathroom, a computer desk, WIFI, and sitting area with a small TV and VHS player.

'Bahama Mama' is located in a charming community of only seven other stone houses. Wykee Estates was built in the 1940's for the first Premier of the Bahamas as a holiday retreat for his family and staff. Our house is the only home built more recently. It was totally renovated 5 years ago and redecorated just this year.

Wykee Estates has a gorgeous saline pool (very low chlorine) that we share with the other residents, but surprisingly is rarely used. The beach is magical!!

You will probably be the only people not only at the pool but on the gorgeous pink sand Atlantic beach as well. Both the pool and beach are just a few minute walk from the house or a 30-second golf cart ride (two golf carts come with the house).

We are in a great location just five minutes by car from the town of Governor's Harbour and eight minutes from the GHB airport. You can also walk five minutes or take the golf cart down the beach to the Sky Beach Club with its excellent restaurant, spectacular views and infinity pool with swim-up cocktail bar.

We have beautiful landscaping, mature fruit trees, hammocks, swings and tether ball. We have plenty of beach towels and beach chairs and beach umbrellas.

The island is totally kicked back and relaxed. Leave your high heels at home along with your makeup... I don't even wear shoes to dinner. The adults can eat at several great beachfront restaurants while the kids run on the beach and play just steps away from your table.

The town of Governors Harbour has a charming collection of 19th century homes and churches overlooking its historic harbor. where you can buy fresh fish and lobster most afternoons from the local fishermen. Governors Harbour has grocery stores, restaurants, liquor stores, two banks with ATMs, a bakery, gift shops, a dive shop, and a medical clinic. Friday Night Fish Fry in Governors Harbour, a street/beach party that brings together all the tourists and locals with food, drink, and dancing in the street, is not to be missed.

The residents of Eleuthera are so warm and friendly and the island is very safe.

    Beth K from PITTSBURGH, PA recommends this vacation rental

    This was our first time to Eleuthera and we enjoyed absolutely every second of our stay there!! What a beautiful, unspoiled paradise! Bahama Mama was the perfect home for our family of 9, beautifully decorated, architecturally lovely & well stocked with everything you need in a beach house. We especially loved the expansive decks and views of the Atlantic and the gorgeous grounds. Everyone.. including the owner, the housekeeper, the representatives from Eleuthera Vacation Rentals and everyone we met on the island were just great people. We can't wait to come back!

    Kathleen S recommends this vacation rental

    This property is exactly as described and pictured and we had the most amazing vacation celebrating our 50th wedding anniversary with our children and grandchildren that anyone could hope for. The weather was perfect, the water warm and inviting, with good restaurants, very good restaurants nearby. The people were charming and friendly. There were some of the most beautiful beaches we have ever seen including Hut Point Beach which this property is on. The owner, through email before our trip was beyond helpful and we did not need to contact the caretaker even 1 time as everything was prepared perfectly for our stay. The views from the deck, decks, as there is a wrap around inside screened porch and and outside porch. One person can be lying in the sun while another is beside them in the shade of the screened porch and carrying on a conversation. The golf carts were a big plus and used everyday to drive the dirt road that ran all along the shore and to get a burgher or drink at the property, a very short ride down the dirt road, to Pascale's Restaurant and swim up bar. Best burghers and drinks.The wifi worked great as did direct tv so we got to watch all our Boston teams many nights in the large TV and game room on the lower level.The rooms were large but inviting and decorated beautifully. the weather was perfect every single day for the 2 weeks we were in Eleuthera. If you like adventure this is the island for you as some of the beaches can only be accessed using 4 wheel drive and your phone children and grandchildren have been on many vacations with us over the years and they loved Eleuthera and they loved Bahama Mama. If it's too rough on the Atlantic side you go to the Caribbean side.On past visits the Caribbean side was always calm but 1 week on this vacation the Caribbean was rough for a few days so the Atlantic was as calm as could be.Most beaches are near empty and most restaurants are full so make reservations. Bahama Mama=perfect location.

    Margaret H from Atlanta, GA - Georgia recommends this vacation rental

    We had a completely seamless experience with Eleuthera Vacation Rentals. Pam was so helpful and extremely prompt with follow up.

    We are six (2 parents and 4 college-age kids) and the house was perfect for us. Everyone had plenty of room and in the evenings, we'd hit the "lounge" downstairs for movies. We loved the screened in veranda (which meant we could keep the house open during the day) and ate most meals out there, too. We didn't have the best weather but that didn't stop us from enjoying the gorgeous beach.

    Linda was also so helpful and friendly.

    The little neighborhood was so quiet. Our only teeny complaint is that the pool seating was very limited and some of it was literally falling apart. But we just brought the beach chairs with us and lounged on those.
