Peach House: Bright & Sunny Suite w/Decks & Ocean View. Walk to Town, Beach

Guest Rating:

Vacation rental cottage. Sleeps 2, 1 bedroom, 1 bathroom. No pets allowed.

Haynes Ave Governors Harbour, Eleuthera XXXXX Bahamas

This sunny suite on landscaped grounds is located on the hilltop above Governors Harbour, in a small community of homes called Governor’s Estate. Stroll down the hill to the shops and restaurants of town, or buy fresh fish and lobster from the town dock. An 8-minute walk in the other direction takes you to French Leave Beach, the most beautiful beach on the island. Walk for miles along this sandy shore, snorkel in the gin-clear waters, and enjoy a meal or a cocktail at the beachside Beach House restaurant. If you prefer, stay at home at Peach House and sunbathe on your expansive deck with views of the ocean.

Peach House has a bright and sunny, open-plan living and dining area with French doors to a large deck. The spacious master bedroom, which also has French doors to a deck, has a king bed and en suite bathroom with walk-in shower.

The kitchen is fully equipped and supplied. Kitchen appliances include a glass-topped electric range and oven, full-size refrigerator, microwave, dishwasher, toaster, and blender.

Peach House is fully air-conditioned and equipped with washer and dryer, IPOD docks, WIFI, and satellite TV with DVD.

French Leave Beach, walking distance from the house, is an idyllic, mile-long, crescent-shaped, pink-sand beach. There are only half a dozen houses on the entire length of this spectacular beach, among the most famous in the Bahamas. 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.

The town of Governors Harbour, at the bottom of the hill, 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. 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.

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. Enjoy the rare experience of picking up hitch-hikers and leaving your keys in the car wherever you go. The snorkeling, diving, and fishing on the island are world class. Boating, surfing, and other water sports are also popular. You can rent power boats, sailboats, sea kayaks, bikes. You can have a charter captain take you out for excursions of various types. 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. We hope you will enjoy Peach House, and experience all our island has to offer.

    Caitlin A from Jersey City, NJ recommends this vacation rental

    Upon arriving to The Peach House (upstairs), we were greeted by the owners, Kathy and Bob. Bob had a great sense of humor, and Kathy had an instant presence about her that made you feel at home. Kathy gave us the lay of the land, and had provided food and beverages to help us settle in right away. The apartment was very charming. Albeit small, it was the perfect size for a couple, as we didn't even spend much time there. The living room was bright and airy, and tastefully decorated. The bedroom had a king bed and ample storage space for clothes and luggage. The kitchen was more than sufficient for our needs. We like to occasionally cook in, and there were plenty of tools etc for us to do so. The listing is actually outdated (to our benefit) - the half bath that was once in the apartment was converted to a laundry room, so we didn't have to share with the downstairs apartment. That said, the dryer in our unit wasn't working, but no big deal, as Kathy told us to use the one downstairs since that unit was unoccupied. Kathy and Bob live right next door - we said our hellos in the morning / evening, but we never felt like they were intruding on our stay. The side decking facing the small ocean view does look over the house next door, but we were either at the beach most days or out to dinner in the evening, so it wasn't a huge deal for us. That said, some newer outdoor furniture and access to an outdoor grill on the property might be a nice add for folks staying in the future, as some may want to enjoy a nice night in at the property. All in all, this was an excellent choice for us, and we are already thinking ahead about another trip to Eleuthera in Kathy and Bob's nearby (larger) properties. Thank you again Kathy and Bob, we hope to cross paths again!

    sandra m from upper marlboro, md recommends this vacation rental

    Clean,spacious,all the comforts of home.The property owner lives next door and couldn't have been more gracious.Nearby and helpful but NOT intrusive. Beautiful homes are nearby but you don't feel crowded,ample privacy. It's like an upscale neighborhood.Can't really see the water but plenty of tropical foliage surrounds the property.Tucked in and very safe to walk around the harbor at night.
