Yellow House

Guest Rating:

Vacation rental house. Sleeps 9, 4 bedrooms, 4.5 bathrooms. Dogs allowed.

Haynes Ave Governors Harbour, Eleuthera XXXXX Bahamas

The Yellow House is a large and elegant new home designed in the Bahamian Colonial style. It is located at the top of the hill in Governors Harbour, a short golf car ride from town, with restaurants and stores, and from world-famous French Leave Beach.

Yellow House is located in a small exclusive community of homes called Governor’s Estate. The Yellow House’s living areas open to gracious wrap-around verandas and a private swimming pool, offering the serenity of island life. (At the guest's option, the pool can be heated for a fee of $200 per week.)

The first floor features the great room and dining room decorated with understated sophistication. The kitchen is large and modern, featuring stainless steel appliances and a custom-designed island – perfect for entertaining. The first floor also has a powder room, a guest bedroom with an en-suite bathroom, and a separate laundry room with washer and dryer.

The Yellow House has a total of four bedrooms, one on the first floor with twin beds that can convert to a king, and three on the second floor, including two with king beds and one with two double beds and a day bed. A private balcony from one of the king-sized rooms offers breathtaking views of the Atlantic Ocean. The other two second-floor bedrooms share a balcony and views of lovely lush landscaping. All bedrooms have en suite bathrooms.

On the roof, a large deck provides a spacious setting for spectacular sunsets and sweeping views of the ocean. The large first-floor wrap-around veranda includes a gas grill and outdoor dining area.

Yellow House has cable TV and WI-FI internet as well as a flat screen TV and multi-region DVD player – this means you can bring your children’s favorite DVDs from anywhere in the world and they will play here. There is also a large DVD library. The house is fully air conditioned. There is a landline phone and an outdoor gas grill.

Yellow House is set on landscaped grounds atop a hill overlooking the Atlantic Ocean to the east and the town of Governors Harbour on the west. It is an 8 minute walk (or 3 minute golf-cart ride in our 6+ seat electric golf cart) down the hill to famous French Leave Beach, a mile long crescent of pink sand that has been ranked in the top 20 of the world.

A 5 minute walk (2-minute golf cart ride) in the other direction takes you to the village of Governors Harbour. Governors Harbour 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, 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 island of Eleuthera is famous for its 100 miles of spectacular, deserted beaches. The island, home to just 8000 residents, is completely safe any time of the day or night. The snorkeling, diving, and fishing on the island are world class. Boating, surfing, and other water sports are also popular. There is excellent sightseeing as well. Eleuthera has vast caves, cliffs, a bottomless ocean hole, many unique beaches, historic churches and 19th century homes, and small villages to explore.

    Linda C recommends this vacation rental

    This is a fantastic house. I can't think of a single thing that we could have asked for that wasn't at our disposal. The kitchen is well appointed, all the bedrooms have comfy beds with luxurious linens. Lots of pool/beach towels and the golf cart to get to the beach. Nice pool with lots of floats. Kathy is an excellent hostess and took the time to see if she could assist with suggestions and local knowledge. All of the beaches are lovely and the locals are friendly and welcoming. Our group travels together every year and this house was one of our best in 21 years. We would recommend this location to anyone!

    Mari W recommends this vacation rental

    We loved everything about our 7 night stay at Yellow House in Governor's Harbour. The home was beautifully appointed and well supplied. The property manager and owner could not have been more helpful. They went out of their way to anticipate our needs, reply to any questions/issues immediately and make spot on recommendations. The Governor's Harbour location is central on Eleuthera allowing exploration of the entire 110 gorgeous miles of island. Yellow House is a short distance from the conveniences of the town, the best restaurants in the area, the prettiest beach we have seen. It is a winner!

    Anne E from Otterburn Park, Quebec recommends this vacation rental

    We enjoyed our stay at the yellow house a great deal. Eleuthera was as charming as in our memories but a bit more chilly than usual and the surf was surprisingly rough. That’s why a heated pool would have been appreciated. I believe it is in the owner’s plans and will make sure it is functional next time around if we return during the colder months. Definitely, a house I would recommend without hesitation.

    Kara T recommends this vacation rental

    Had a wonderful time in Eleuthera at Kathy's Yellow House. Kathy was very kind and welcoming to our group. House is beautiful and very comfortable. As others stated, it was very kind of Kathy to cook for us and have some water/wine for us at the house when we arrived. We stayed for about 5 nights. Had an issue with the water pump one night, and Kathy promptly fixed the issue the next morning.
