vacation rental description

Belmont House sits high atop Buccanneer Hill with spectacular views of Governors Harbour, the sea, and the sunset. This grand historic home dates from the mid-1800s. It has been meticulously restored to retain its original elegance, while enjoying all modern luxuries and conveniences. Belmont House was decorated by a reknowned Italian designer. It features exquisite contemporary furnishings, many custom made, hardwood floors and high ceilings.

Belmont’s façade is dominated by its grand two-story veranda looking out across the harbor. The upstairs features two large bedrooms, each with ocean views and direct access to the veranda, and two large and luxurious full baths. One bedroom has a king bed, and the other has two twins. Relax with a cocktail on the comfortable teak furniture of the grand veranda and enjoy a spectacular, 50-mile, 180-degree ocean and sunset view. You may find it difficult to leave.

On the first floor, Belmont features a large living room and a spacious formal dining room with seating for eight. The modern, airy, peninsula kitchen is fully equipped with stainless steel appliances, including refrigerator, dishwasher, microwave, and Bosch oven. The downstairs has a third full bath and a washer and dryer. The large first-floor veranda is a delightful spot, with garden and ocean views.

Belmont House shares a beautiful new pool with two nearby cottages. Amenities at Belmont House include air conditioning, high-speed wireless internet, cable TV, hi-fi stereo, cordless telephone, and off street parking.

Belmont House is part of the Squires Estate collection of beautifully restored 19th century homes on the hill above Governors Harbour. The décor and level of finish will delight the most discriminating world traveler. Our manager will greet you upon arrival and be available to assist you as needed. She can arrange for daily housekeeping, a private chef, or a car rental (extra charges apply), and provide advice about island activities. Other staff at Squires Estate include a fulltime gardener and housekeepers. Laundry and ironing services are provided on the premises.

The Belmont House estate includes two beautiful one-bedroom cottages that can be rented along with the house for additional bedrooms. Belmont House and its cottages can also be combined with other historic homes and cottages in the Squires Estate collection for larger groups.

The town of Governors Harbour, a two-minute walk down the hill, 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.

Walking down the hill in the other direction takes you to French Leave Beach, the finest beach on the island and one of the great beaches of the hemisphere. By foot, it’s less than ten minutes to French Leave, a mile-long crescent of pink sand that is usually deserted. Most visitors to Eleuthera rent a car during their stay, because the island is rural and spread out, and a car is the only practical way to get around. By car, Belmont House is just a minute from French Leave Beach.

FREE FLIGHTS: A stay of four nights or longer entitles you to 2 free round-trip tickets from Nassau to Eleuthera or flight credits from the U.S. Some restrictions apply.

"Eleuthera is also one of the most beautiful..."

Review submitted: February 12, 2013   Date of arrival: November 1, 2008

First thing Belmout house is not a hotel but a house rental which we booked with a website eleuthera dream rentals.

We have travelled all over the world and have stayed in some of the finest accommodations you can imagine. The house compares to some of the finest of them. It is more how you feel when you are there. The quality of all the fixtures and fitting are superior to most holiday homes we have been to. We found ourselves feeling at home and secluded whilst in the knowledge that everything is a stones throw away.

We were gently guided by a lovely English lady
who greeted us like a long lost friend to the best restaurants and
excursions and we were pleased with everything we ate and did.

Eleuthera is also one of the most beautiful places on earth the people were lovely
and there is nobody bothering you to buy stuff.
Thank you

Liked — Superior to most holiday homes, views,
Disliked — nothing

"Eleuthera Belmont House"

Review submitted: February 12, 2013   Date of arrival: December 1, 2008

We both had a great time in Eleuthera, the location and view were excellent. I think it was our best vacation ever. Belmont house was splendid this unique fully restored property everything about this house is about giving you the feeling of home with quality through out. Belmont house is one of the oldest on the island and overlooks the historic settlement of Governor’s Harbour with a view of the ocean and Cupid’s Cay, Take your camera you will see sunsets that really will take your breath away. We could not have asked for anything better. The weather, the beautiful scenery, the privacy, the house, the friendly people, Eleuthera is really one of those places that lets you wind down and relax, The support from the local representative was 1st class. Food on the island was great with Tippys being on top of the list.... everything was just perfect. I hope we can come again some time. We Booked by eleutheradreamrenals.com (Very Friendly) we are aware that you can rent the house direct at eleutheraestates.info

Stunning views from a meticulous, historic home

Review submitted: January 11, 2013   Date of arrival: December 22, 2012

I recently had the pleasure of staying in Belmont House over the Christmas holidays, with my husband, two daughters and my mother. The house is every bit as wonderful as described! To begin with, the home was spotlessly clean and fresh, with all of the bathrooms, linens, floors, kitchen utensils, and appliances in beautiful condition and ready to use. Belmont House provides a fascinating mixture of historic detail with contemporary, high end amenities and decoration; our family loved noticing how many of the decorations and furnishings in the home have been made from "repurposed" antiques and local materials. The house is well equipped with most of what you need to prepare simple meals and snacks for a small family; as we often do when traveling in the islands, we generally tried to prepare our own breakfasts and lunches, and then enjoyed some of the delightful cuisine at nearby establishments for dinner. The grounds on the Squires Estate and nearby properties are beautifully landscaped with a nice variety of colorful flowers and plants, and the views from the wrap-around verandahs at Belmon House out over the Caribbean and Cupid's Cay, especially at sunset, are unparalleled! We also loved that the house was conveniently located in Governor's Harbour, which is central on the island - we took day trips both north and south (you will need a rental car if you want to explore the island; easily arranged through your rental agent). If there over the holidays, don't miss Junkanoo in Tarpum Bay, Christmas Eve dinner at the Rainbow Inn, and sunrise on French Leave Beach, just down the hill from the house. Oh, and chocolate croissants from the Banks Road Deli right by the beach - yum! We truly loved Eleuthera, from its breathtaking atlantic side pink sand beaches, to its warm, sunny Caribbean side beaches (the kids liked Cocodimama and Rainbow Bay the best), to its welcoming, friendly people - and we will be going back!
