Banks Road Governors Harbour, Eleuthera XXXXX Bahamas

Waterford House is a 12-acre estate with 600 feet of private pink-sand beachfront. It is located on the prestigious Banks Road, 2 miles from Governors Harbour. Waterford enjoys complete privacy and a deserted beach, but is just a five-minute walk from famous Tippy's beachfront restaurant.

Waterford features ocean views from all major rooms. The entrance opens into the sunlit dining room, with sliding glass doors to the beach and pool on the opposite wall. To the right is the main living area, furnished with a large comfortable sectional to relax on while enjoying the ocean view. To the left is the fully equipped kitchen, a generously proportioned room with an island in the middle, a second dining area, and glass doors leading to deck. The house has three bedrooms. The master bedroom has a king bed, an ocean view, and a en suite bath. It opens to the pool and patio. The queen bedroom has direct access to the second bathroom. The third bedroom has a king bed, an ocean view, and opens to the pool and patio. This bedroom has access to the bath via the hallway.

Both the living room and the kitchen breakfast area are equipped with televisions (both have satellite TV and Apple TV).

From Governors Harbour’s famous Banks Road, the driveway to Waterford House takes you through a pair of wrought-iron gates with white walls, then through the gardens to the main house. Waterford is surrounded by extensive gardens. The front entry has a port-cochere, providing a covered space for parking as you go in and out of the house.

The main entrance to the one-story home is enclosed by glass walls. The front door slides open to the sun-lit dining room, softly decorated in white, taking you all the way through to another set of glass doors with views of the beach and access to the swimming pool. The main entrance is all in white wood with tile floors.

To the right is the main living area, decorated in soft pastel colors and furnished with a large comfortable sectional sofa to relax upon while enjoying the view. The main room has a support area, with a small bar and a refrigerator, and a laundry with washer and dryer. There are two bedrooms off the main room, a king-size bedroom with private access to the pool, and a queen size bedroom with en-suite bath. All rooms are air-conditioned.

Toward the left side of the house is the fully equipped kitchen, a generously proportioned room with an island in the middle. It features a second dining area with glass doors leading outside to the pool. Further to the left is the master bedroom suite with king bed, en-suite bath, and a private deck with expansive views of the beach and pool.

Waterford House also has a rollaway bed for a 7th guest if needed.

Outside, white symmetrical stairs take you up to the roof deck with breathtaking views of the beach, and in the opposite direction, the sunset. The wooden deck surrounding the pool(not heated) takes you to the rest of the garden and on through to the beach.

Amenities at Waterford include air-conditioning in every room, WIFI, beach chairs and umbrella, gas grill, two children's bikes, TV with DVD player, and CD player. The living room TV has Apple TV. There is a caretaker who lives on the edge of the estate. If you want privacy, you will never see him. If you want his help, he can be available.

The town of Governors Harbour, five minutes away by car, 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.

    Victoria W recommends this vacation rental

    Celebrating my 50th Birthday! This house was just lovely, the photos and the description of the house were perfect. The guest cottage was included in our stay as well with a total of 4 couples in our booking. The kitchen was equipped with every gadget imaginable! The house has two baths which we all knew before we arrived so two of the couples shared a bath but of course the master was always available to use as well. Tippys restarant was very close to walk on the beach and was just great. The town was 2 miles away which you could walk to as well as a five min walk to the Levy Preserve which was just lovely! Loved this house and it was a bonus to have the swimming pool with beautiful views! Highly recommend!

    Vanessa B recommends this vacation rental

    We have travelled all over the world, and this was one of our absolute favorite vacations. The location could not be more perfect - the house itself is beautifully decorated, clean and has a layout that was perfect for the 4 of us but would easily digest double the number or more. The pool is the cherry on the top. We bounced between the beach (where at most you saw a couple of people a day) and then plunged into the pool and lay on the pool lounges and read our books, and then had sundowners on the roof deck. You are an easy drive into Governor's Harbor and we loved visiting the different grocery stores, liquor stores and bakery - and then the Island Farm was really wonderful. My husband fished off the beach but was also a short drive from the flats for some bone fishing. We have been to several places in the Caribbean and were yet to really be 'taken' by the place - probably because we had visited more of the resort based areas. Eleuthera and Waterford house changed it all! I now can't imagine going anywhere else! I just can't imagine it gets much better than this. Carol (the housekeeper) and Amanda (the owner) were also both wonderful!

    Superb property in an amazing location, ideal for our large family holiday. The house was very well equipped throughout and all details thought through, it felt like a luxurious home rather than a holiday rental.

    a guest from Prairie Village, KS recommends this vacation rental

    The house was perfect for a quiet family getaway. We were looking for empty beaches for a trip with our infant and it did not disappoint. The house was well equipped with everything we needed, including a pack and play, beach chairs and umbrellas, cooler, etc. The beach was one of the best I have seen anywhere, and after visiting a few on the island (including Harbour Island), I'd argue it is the best on Eleuthera. The walk to one of the only beach bars on the island was perfect and Tippy's is definitely one of the best restaurants. I'd recommend the house to anyone.

    Lynne S recommends this vacation rental

    though in the middle of the hottest season, staying in the Waterfrod beach cottage was amazing!
    The location is one of the best. The cottage is well-maintained with every amenity taken care of...the additon of the beach gazebo by the owner, made my days on the beach lovely, finding shade under the gazebo, then taking a dip in the ocean, walking on the very long lovely beach...even being able to walk to the popular Tippys beachfront restaurant. My only problem was the brief length of my stay...I would stay 2 weeks instead of just 1, to allow for some road trips out to the ends of the island and ferry to Spanish Wells, etc. The property owner could not have been more considerate and helpful. She maintains the property and its amenities beautifully.

    Our stay in Waterford is simple to resume;
    SLENDID house, SWEET host and very efficient management.
    We were 3 couples staying for nine days. The house was way more then expected, absolutely nothing negative to say about Waterford. Our host was very welcoming and helpful and gave us a sweet reception. We also give a “two tums up” to the management team for their all around support and collaboration.

    This is a great house with many extras. The house is very clean. The beds are comfortable. The sheets and towels are plentiful and luxurious. The kitchen has every imaginable gadget you could need. Lots of spices available if you want to cook. The house is wonderful and the only thing that exceeds the house and pool is the location and the beach just a few steps from the back door. One of the best beaches on the island with some great snorkeling right there. The owner is accommodating and a wonderful host. We are so glad we got to meet her.

    This home is located on a beautiful private beach only a short path away. The water was magnificent. It was the clearest water I've ever been in in my life.

    The house is well laid out and has all the conveniences of home. It was missing nothing!!!

    Sandy M from Clifton, NJ recommends this vacation rental

    Waterford House and Eleuthera has quickly risen to the top of our new "favorite places" to stay. The house is perfect and incredibly equipped. Matt and Tara were wonderful to deal with and so attentive in helping us set up and plan for our trip. Amanda, the Owner was wonderful and very accommodating to us. We were lucky to meet her during our stay as she had business to attend to during our stay. House is clean and comfortable. Pool very nice, beach fabulous, and practically all ours. Saw only a few people walk by that entire week. Ocean was warm and wonderful. Tippys, Buccaneer, 1627 (?) are great places to eat. Bring lots of cash. Not everyone accepts credit cards. Loved the Glass Window Bridge, Swimming with the Pigs (with Capt. Ryan) and finding all of those secluded gorgeous private beaches. Check out the Preachers Cave, explore and enjoy this GREAT island.

    Maryellen M from Victor, NY recommends this vacation rental

    This was our first time visiting Eleuthera and what a great experience! The house and property are amazing! I'm not sure where else you can go to have this kind of space with both a pool and absolutely gorgeous stretch of ocean, all to yourselves. The house was spotless and super comfortable. It's close to the town (Governor's Harbor). Anytime we had questions or minor issues the owner and caretaker were extremely responsive and attentive. I would say that this far exceeded many of the properties I have rented in the past with the amenities supplied and the property itself. These included some great supplies at the house -- soap, dish soap,etc; beach chairs, some snorkeling equipment; beach toys. We also received a nice welcome basket and a rum punch toast on our arrival to the house.

    This next part is about Eleuthera: You can drive from this property to harbor island to see the "famed" pink sand beach. And it's a cool area but you won't find any beach there (at least that we saw) that is any prettier than the one at Waterford. If you want a stunning walk with gorgeous pink sand beach, go out to the ocean from the house and walk about one mile to the right towards a rock outcropping. It's a beautiful spot. It Tippy's is open, you'll pass it easily for a cool drink on the walk. The snorkeling was better for us on the Caribbean side of the island and can be a short drive. We loved ten bay beach and south palmetto point. We loved Pammy's for breakfast, the sunset inn and 1648 for dinner (very different atmosphere but both lots of fun).
    It's not hard to get to the island. We went through Ft. Lauderdale on Silver Airways--super easy both ways.
    Between Eleuthera vacations rentals and the homeowner, not a question went unanswered or issue unresolved . This is a bit of a rustic island but that and the people are what make it special. We would love to visit again.
