Stylish and Lavishly Appointed Beach House at Club Med Beach

Stylish and Lavishly Appointed Beach House at Club Med Beach


Property Details

Updated: May 20, 2015
6 Bedrooms, 5 Full Bathrooms, Sleeps 14

Welcome to Alfred House, a new, luxurious, and secluded beachfront estate on the north end of world-famous French Leave Beach (formerly Club Med Beach). There are no houses between this house and the mile-long beach of pink sand where a Club Med once stood, the most sought-after beach location on Eleuthera. The ocean is turquoise, shallow, and historically safe, having served Club Med well for many years. Enjoy thousands of feet of deserted beachfront, extensive ocean views from every major room, and the sound and smell of the ocean from everywhere.

Alfred House is a newly constructed, 4000-square-foot, 5-bedroom Bahamian Colonial home plus one-bedroom guest cottage (800 square foot), located just 50 feet from the beach. The house was designed and decorated to reflect the laid back feeling of the cabanas at the Bitter End Yacht Club, Virgin Gorda. Both the upstairs and downstairs of Alfred House have a wall of glass french windows, so as you move through the house, you see the sea at every turn. The house is furnished with distressed Indian teak antiques and custom pieces made of teak, mango, & cherry woods, and black and white photographs of movie icons.

Downstairs, Alfred House features a vast great room that looks out through a wall of glass french doors at the beach and ocean. The open-plan kitchen faces the ocean, and features custom wooden white shelving with Mexican shell encrusted stone countertops. Appliances are stainless steel. The kitchen island is capped with a ten-foot teak counter with matching teak bar stools.

There are Honduran hardwood floors, cypress cedar ceilings, marble and slate tile, and mini-split air conditioning units. The upstairs features a huge media room overlooking the sea, along with four bedrooms, with a fifth bedroom downstairs. Four of the bedrooms have huge ocean views. The fifth has a hill/sunset view. Three large bedrooms have king beds; the two smaller bedrooms have two twin beds in each. The three king suites have ensuite bathrooms. There is a powder/shower room downstairs. The media room upstairs is huge, another gathering spot, and faces the ocean and shows turquoise water through several french doors.

The upstairs sun deck, with its grand row of honduran mahogany shutters, runs the length of the house (60 ft), with miles of beach and ocean views. It is furnished with comfortable white lounge chairs. Beneath it is a covered terrace, a shady spot for enjoying the sea breeze and the sound of the ocean. The floor of the terrace contains a lovely mosaic of a conch made by a local island artist. Seating for drinks or coffee is available on the ground terrace, where you can see and hear the ocean.

Alfred's guest cottage, called Med Point, is perched right on the edge of the ocean with a huge 1100-square-foot teak wrap-around deck. It is 800 square feet, and has it's own kitchen, in a large great room. The cottage is available for an additional charge (see Rates for details). If you don't require use of the guest cottage, it will be left empty. We will not rent it to anyone else.

Amenities at Alfred House include full AC, a large flat-screen TV with DVD in the media room, high-speed internet with WIFI. The house does not have cable or satellite TV.

Alfred House is surrounded by over 20 acres of secluded wild nature, full of casuarina trees, coconut palms, giant cacti, sea grape and lettuce, even though we are only a mile or so from town. (See the aerial view). Explore French Leave Beach, and see the ruins of the old Club Med, which was swept away by a hurricane. The grounds and gardens of Alfred House have palms, palmettos, cacti, hibiscus, and oleander. We have a beautiful copper coloured coral garden off the Med Point deck, on which geckos sun themselves, and which has a natural blowhole that spouts water 30 feet on windy days. There is excellent snorkeling right off our property.

WALK 20 MINUTES INTO TOWN, through Club Med Beach, and buy lobster or grouper, freshly caught every day around 2 pm. The local fishermen will clean the fish for you, and provide only lobster tails, if you wish. A CHEF CAN BE ARRANGED FOR NIGHTLY SERVICE. Daily maid service is available for additional charge.

There is a fantastic sandy jogging/walking path, shady in places, in both directions along the beach. The wooden upstairs deck and terrace below are suitably wide for yoga. There is a wide outdoor stairway, so that children can run out into the garden. The outdoor shower faces the ocean and the palm filled garden. The back garden has a vegetable patch, which is available for guest use.

A 15 minute walk down the beach from Alfred House will take you to the beautiful Beach House Restaurant, where you can enjoy tapas and drinks on the large beachfront deck. The famous bar/restaurant Tippy's is just two miles away, and you can drive through Club Med beachfront to reach it. A 20 minute walk (or 5 minute drive) in the other direction takes you to Sky Beach Bistro, another great beachfront restaurant and pool bar.

Guestbook comments from the manager

Your home is beautiful and we loved everything about Eleuthera and our stay at Alfred House. It was the perfect spot to relax and a wonderful place to come home to after our many adventures in and around the island. Your welcome letter and tips were so helpful. My children said Eleuthera is one of their very favorite places we've ever visited (and we travel quite a bit). We all hope we can return one day soon! Many thanks again!

The best in beach properties!

  • 5 of 5
This was our second stay at Alfred House and we have already made our 2016 reservation! If you want elegant, private, beachfront living, Alfred House is where you want to be. The listing is very accurate, but the actual beauty and peacefulness of the setting far exceeds the description. The view of the Atlantic is magnificent from both floors of the house. The beaches "at your front door" are the best on the island.

The caretakers do a wonderful job of maintaining the property and they are available to take care of any need you have at a moment's notice. We had a problem with an air conditioner and it was repaired within 2 hours.

We love the atmosphere of the location. You feel like you are on a deserted island, but all the amenities and restaurants in Governor's Harbor are just minutes away. We especially enjoyed dining at the 1648 restaurant in the new French Leave Resort.

We would recommend Alfred House to anyone who wants a first-class beach experience in Eleuthera.

Amazing location!!

  • 4 of 5
This house is adjacent to a very beautiful beach called French Leave which is one of the Top 10 beaches in Eleuthera. It’s a beach that’s approximately a mile and a half long, beautiful pink sand and great for walking and you’ll barely see people there. The house itself is a nice house nicely, though sparingly furnished.

On the negative side the house does not have its own water supply and water has to be brought in by a truck and put in the tank so there is very little water pressure and if you want to take a shower it comes in little dribbles so don’t expect a good hot shower. Additionally, there is no hard lined phone service here nor Internet so both phone and Internet have to be through cell service which can be difficult. The house is in a remote location which we love because we enjoy the privacy and yet it is only around a five minute drive to a town where you can buy most of your groceries so we found the location to be delightful. Additionally being on the Atlantic Coast of Eleuthera it is often very windy so make sure to bring a windbreaker as even during the days the winds blow quite briskly.

Owner's Response: I'm the rental agent for this property, not the owner. I handle 100 other rentals on the island as well. Water pressure on the island in general is not what we are used to in the U.S., but the water pressure in this house is certainly adequate, typical for the island, and no other clients of mine have complained about it. The comment about the wind is also misleading. The best beaches on this island, the spectacular pink sand beaches for which it is famous, are on the Atlantic side. This side is actually prized for its pleasant ocean breeze. No one wears a windbreaker on the beach. We wear bathing suits. The exception would be the two or three times a year when temps drop for a few days due to weather events. But normally, you won't see anyone wearing a windbreaker on the beach : )

This a beautiful home in an ideal location - five minutes to Gov. Harbour. Situated on two pristine beaches that have a completely "private" feel, even during the height of Spring Break travel. The caretaker, Christine, was very helpful and attentive, and the owner and her agents were very responsive to the small issues that arose during our visit. Can't wait to return.

Eleuthra's Best!

We have rented homes in Eleuthra several times, but I have to say that Alfred House exceeded our every expectation. The view of the beach and ocean from the house is nothing short of spectacular! The furnishings are first-class and the second story deck was a wonderful place to get some afternoon sun.

The caretaker of Alfred House met us at the Governor's Harbour airport and helped us get settled in. She checked in on us during the week and was only a phone call away.

If you want luxury accommodations, the most beautiful beaches on the island, privacy yet being close to stores and restaurants, you can't find a better place than Alfred House. We will certainly be back.

This is one of the nicest properties on Eleuthera!

  • 5 of 5
This is undoubtedly one of the nicest properties on the island. Large 5 BR + 2 LR stately house but feels like home since the furnishings and decor are very inviting and relaxing. All of this with spectacular views and steps to the most beautiful and private beaches one can imagine. If I could rate higher than 5 stars I certainly would as this beautiful home exceeded all of my high expectations!

Alfred House is set on a point between 2 beautiful beaches: Club Med Beach, which is shallow and safe and superb for snorkelling, and boogie boarding, and Casuarina Beach, which is 1000 feet from Twin Cove Beach, which has the finest snorkelling in town. The town of Governors Harbour, less than a mile away, is an easy and pleasant walk along the beach, and up a small hill. Snorkel and swim off our wide pink sand beach, then shower in our garden.Alfred House is on a point between Club Med Beach (French Leave) and Casuarina Beach, so you have your choice of 2 beaches to step onto. 1000 feet up the beach is Twin Cove Beach which has the finest snorkeling in Governors Harbour. Our beaches are shallow, and historically safe, protected by a large reef system. The water is among the clearest in the world. Walk half a mile to THE BEACH HOUSE RESTAURANT, for tapas and live music on the beach. Sky Beach Bar is about 2 miles away along the beach. On Casuarina Beach, turtles nest at night, because it is so gloriously unspoiled. There is a SUPERB SANDY JOGGING PATH extending north and south, along our beach, which is by times shrouded in foliage, and by times open to vistas of the ocean, on the old Banks Road, which is far more secluded and rustic than Banks Road on the south. One of the loveliest drives on the whole island, is the drive north, from Alfred House, to Knowles Drive, along the water, on the Old Banks Road. There is a youtube video on this. You will brush palm trees and sea grape, and see rare birds and hear the crickets sing. This is Club Med Solo. Set up your iPod and do yoga on the deck as the sun rises over the Atlantic

So close to the ocean, that there is instant accessibility for quick swims several times a day.
