vacation rental description

Richview is a new, luxurious, 4-bedroom, 4-bath home fifty yards from world-famous French Leave Beach, one of the most beautiful beaches in the Bahamas. Richview has spectacular views of the beach and ocean. It is located on the historic Banks Road, the premier location on Eleuthera, a mile from the town of Governors Harbour. The Beach House restaurant is a two-minute walk down the beach, and Tippy's beach restaurant is less than a mile away.

Richview is a stunning mix of old-world charm and modern comforts. Amenities include two full-service kitchens (ideal for groups with multiple families), air conditioning, washer/dryer, WIFI, satellite television, three flat-screen TVs, DVD player with video library, VOIP phone with free unlimited local and international calls, CD sound system, child and adult games, a telescope, a full-capacity generator, and a caretaker on duty.

Richview includes a two-story, three-bedroom main house with an annexed honeymoon suite, for that couple in your group who desire extra privacy. Each section contains its own well-stocked, full-service kitchen. The two sections of the house are always rented together, to only one group at a time, so your privacy is assured. (For smaller groups who don't need a fourth bedroom, the honeymoon suite is simply locked off unless requested.) Richview offers great outdoor living space with a huge wrap-around deck with loungers, a charcoal grill, outdoor dining area, two outdoor showers, a pergola for shade, and an observation deck with spectacular 360-degree views.

You enter Richview into the large Front Hall. This spacious room has a couch, access to the washer/dryer, and sliders to the rear deck. To your right is the computer room (with wifi and VOIP phone) and access to the two first-floor bedrooms. One has a king bed and the other two twins that can be converted to a king. Returning to the Front

Hall, you take the steps to the second floor. Here we have a full kitchen, large dining area, living room (all with BEAUTIFUL beach and ocean views) and a separate queen size bedroom and full bathroom. Off this area, you can enter the sundeck and observation deck. The views from the deck are truly spectacular. The ocean is 50 yards away and you can see 360 degrees of Eleuthera.

Returning to the first floor Front Hall, on your left is the entrance to the one-story honeymoon suite with a king-size bed, living room, full kitchen and large shower/bathroom. All four bedrooms at Richview have private en-suite bathrooms.

Just walk across the street and down our private path, and you’re on the beautiful pink sand of French Leave Beach (also known as Club Med Beach, for the Club Med that was located there many years ago). Richview comes with everything you need to enjoy our beautiful beach, including beach chairs and umbrellas, and two outdoor showers.

In addition to the Beach House tapas restaurant and bar (easy walking distance), Tippy’s famous restaurant is just a mile away. Both Tippy’s and the Beach House offer fine dining and live entertainment. Other upscale restaurants within easy driving distance include The Bistro at Sky Beach Club and Cocodimama. The town of Governors Harbour, less than a mile away, has a lovely 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.

traveler reviews for this eleuthera house rental

Great House in a Great Location!

Review submitted: July 24, 2014   Date of arrival: July 9, 2014

House was very comfortable and well suited for our needs and the Banks Rd location was ideal. Eleuthera was one of the best beach islands we've been to and we've been to quite a few. The staff was very responsive to our needs and virtually everyone on the island was friendly and gracious. We did not have a bad experience anywhere in our ten days. House was in good condition and well stocked with kitchen and beach supplies. Loved eating at Tippy's just down the street and enjoyed being so close to French Leave Beach and just a short drive to Governor's Harbor. One thing that's needed is a better grill on which to cook the fabulous fish available each day from town. Other than that, we loved the house and would highly recommend it.

Can't Wait to Return

Review submitted: July 9, 2014   Date of arrival: June 21, 2014

This was our second trip to Eleuthera and can't wait to return! Richview was the perfect house for us, our 5 year old son, and our teenaged nieces. The home was so well stocked for everything - kitchen, entertainment, relaxing, and beach supplies. The short walk down the beautiful beach path seemed like it was beachfront. Having the Beach House Restaurant, literally three doors down, and Tippy's 1 mile down the road (actually a beautiful beach walk is the way to go), makes this an exceptional location. We are already booked for next year!

Recommended for: adventure seekers, age 55+, families with young children, families with teenagers, girls getaway, sight seeing, romantic getaway
