vacation rental description

This lovingly restored 19th century cottage features natural oak floors and high ceilings. It is furnished with a literal treasure trove of unique pieces from around the world. You enter Stone House into the spacious living room. There is a large loft bedroom above it, accessed by a short flight of steps. The loft has twin beds, a sitting area, and a dramatic cathedral ceiling. Pass through the living room to the dining room and fully equipped kitchen featuring state-of-the-art stainless steel appliances. There is also a full bath on this level with walk-in shower.

The master bedroom is accessed down a flight of stairs. It has a king bed and beautifully appointed en suite bathroom with shower and tub.

Outside, enjoy Stone House’s two large and lovely shaded porches, which have both dining and sitting areas. Stone House shares a pool with two other houses.You will be surrounded by a lush garden which is home to many fruit trees, bougainvillea, hibiscus, aloe and coconut palms.

Amenities at Stone House include flat-screen cable TV, air conditioning, ceiling fan, wireless internet, hi-fi stereo, cordless telephone, and off-street parking.

Stone House is part of the Squires Estate collection of beautifully restored 19th century homes on the hill above Governors Harbour. The homes and cottages of Squires Estate were restored and furnished with antiques by a reknowned Italian architect. 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. Stone House can be combined with other historic homes and cottages in the Squires Estate collection for larger groups.

The town of Governors Harbour, a one-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 over 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 Caribbean. By foot, it’s about 10 minutes to French Leave, a mile-long crescent of pink sand which is literally deserted most of the time. Most visitors to Eleuthera rent a car, because the island is rural and spread out, and a car is the only practical way to get around. By car, Stone 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 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 Stone House, and experience all our island has to offer.

traveler reviews for this eleuthera house rental

Stone House is charming and in a great location!

Review submitted: June 20, 2013   Date of arrival: June 12, 2013

Stone House is in the perfect location! Close to a few restaurants, grocery shopping and the Friday Fish Fry! The house is uniquely decorated but with an updated kitchen and bathrooms. It is well stocked, orderly and clean. Annie was wonderful! Squires Estate homes are tastefully restored giving you the sense of walking into the 1800's yet with today's modern conveniences. What a lovely blend of yesterday and today sensations. Peaceful, quaint, restful, relaxing...we loved it!

"Beautifully restored homes"

Review submitted: February 12, 2013   Date of arrival: April 1, 2011

We stayed in the Stone House for a long weekend and loved it. The location of the houses is perfect. The appliances are top notch and the grounds are wonderfully relaxing to stroll through. Everyone was really helpful and made our getaway that much better. If you are looking for your own home away from home, Squire Estates will not disappoint!

"Will return"

Review submitted: February 12, 2013   Date of arrival: August 1, 2011

My husband and I stayed in the Stone house in August 2011 and this was one of the best vacations we’ve had so far in the Bahamas.

Upon booking the cottage, we weren’t really sure if we had made the right choice since there weren’t many reviews to go by, and soon after we arrived on the Island and entered the cottage, we realized we did make the right choice. The Stone House is a two-bedroom home with the Master bedroom downstairs.

This beautifully decorated house just grew on us on our 8 night stay. It was our home away from home and very comfortable. If you do not mind staying in a place that is not like a hotel, and provides you with a sense of ‘living’ on the island, then you may very well like the Esquire Estates.

We rented a car which provided us with the option to move around the island and explore. We really enjoyed having the quiet beach access just a few minutes away within driving distance. The beaches are just beautiful and don’t be surprised if you’re sharing the beach with just a few other guests; not over crowded at all. On some days we packed a light snack and enjoyed an afternoon on the beach.

Anne, the property Manager was very helpful throughout our stay and was available for any questions we may have. Having a full kitchen was a nice bonus in the house since there may be parts of the day when you don’t mind preparing your own meal.

My husband and I have wonderful memories of visiting Eleuthera and staying in the Esquires Estate. This was a vacation like no other for us and we hope to come back and visit again in the years to come.
