Buccaneer’s Hill Governors Harbour, Eleuthera XXXXX Bahamas

Squires Estate is an artistic blend of the historic and contemporary. This lovely estate dates from the first half of the1800's. During the recent restoration, the original historic architecture was preserved while accommodating the needs of modern luxury living, including state-of-the-art fixtures, appliances, electronics and the addition of pools. Mixing original furnishings with a unique blend of creatively researched pieces and antiques from around the world, Squires Estate’s renowned Italian architect created a sense of Colonial nostalgia that is unique and delightful. The décor and level of finish will delight the most discriminating world traveler. Each house and cottage has a distinct personality and recreates gracious living in the classic Bahamian tradition.

Squires Estate offers a wide range of accommodations, including grand homes and romantic cottages with hillside pools and harbor views. The Estate is private, discreet, and well-appointed. Squires Estate includes 8 unique houses and cottages surrounded by lush gardens which are home to many fruit trees, bougainvillea, hibiscus, aloe and coconut palms. Those are just a few of the plants that grace this serene property with its dramatic views and well-manicured grounds.

All of the houses and cottages offer pools that are shared with either one or two other houses. Amenities include flat-screen cable TV, air conditioning, ceiling fans, wireless internet, hi-fi stereo, cordless telephone, and off-street parking.

The Squires Estate historic houses and cottages can be combined to accommodate larger groups. Squires Estate is a perfect venue for weddings, anniversaries, reunions and many other special events. The following is a list of all the houses and cottages:

The Squires Estate manager will greet you upon arrival and be available to assist you as needed. She can arrange for daily housekeeping, a private chef, or a car rental (extra charges apply), and provide advice about island activities. Other staff at Squires Estate include a full time gardener and housekeepers. Laundry and ironing services are provided on the premises.

The town of Governors Harbour, a one-minute walk down the hill, has a charming collection of 19th century homes and churches overlooking its historic harbor. Buy fresh fish and lobster every afternoon from fisherman at the town dock, or visit the recently restored Haynes Library, which dates from 1897, for the weekly coffee hour for foreign residents and tourists. . Governors Harbour has grocery stores, restaurants, liquor stores, two banks with ATMs, a bakery, gift shops 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.

Walking over the hill in the other direction takes you to French Leave Beach, the finest beach on the island and one of the great beaches of the Caribbean. By foot, it’s about 10 minutes to French Leave, a mile-long crescent of pink sand which is literally deserted most of the time. Most visitors to Eleuthera rent a car, because the island is rural and spread out, and a car is the only practical way to get around. By car, Squires Estate is just a minute from French Leave Beach.

FREE FLIGHT: A stay of four nights or longer entitles you to one free round-trip ticket from Nassau to Eleuthera or flight credits from the U.S. Some restrictions apply. THIS PROMOTION IS RUN BY THE MINISTRY OF TOURISM AND IS NOT ALWAYS AVAILABLE. Please contact us for details.

Eleuthera is famous for its 100 miles of spectacular, deserted beaches. The island, home to just 8000 residents, is completely safe an

    a guest from Brooklyn, NY recommends this vacation rental

    We booked all the cottages on the Squires Estate property for a Labor Day wedding with about 30 people and had the time of our lives. Patrick and his staff (Squires) were there to greet us and give us a tour—and they were up at the crack of dawn to see us off as well! Beyond that, they were there daily to make sure we had everything we needed, to clean, and to help set up our small wedding dinner. Ahead of arriving, Matt and his team (Eleuthera Vacation Rentals) talked me through planning everything—from fishing and snorkeling to car rentals to the local fish Fry to flights. We could not have had a better experience. Thank you to the whole team!
