vacation rental description

Nestling in the desirable 'up-hill' community of the historic settlement of Governor's Harbour, Low Cay (“low key”) is a discreet and delightful cottage residence, recently renovated to a unique standard of contemporary elegance.

Re-created in 2012 by its British owners as a stylish and romantic retreat, this one bedroomed hideaway offers couples a taste of local life combined with a five star European standard of interior design, with WiFi and air conditioning throughout.

The main living space combines a gorgeous open plan, well-appointed kitchen with the highest quality utensils and equipment and an extensive polished concrete worktop and breakfast bar, and a spacious and elegant lounge with comfortable sofas, bespoke driftwood table, LED TV, a Bowers & Wilkins 'Zeppelin' iPod dock, a hand-made polished concrete occasional table and luxurious expanses of floating, translucent linen curtain.

The sense of space and luxury is enhanced by the wonderfully worked full height ceiling and versatile lighting design, which give a scale to the residence that its charming exterior keeps modestly hidden.

The bathroom delivers a sense of intimate luxury with its lavishly sized walk-in shower with sand blasted glass screen, hand-made driftwood console with twin basins and natural light filtered through obscured glass windows.

The bedroom features a locally designed and constructed super-queen sized (66'W) bedstead and side tables, with an individually commissioned US box spring mattress.

Storage is provided in the built-in wardrobe and additional stylish shelving.

Through double French doors, the bedroom gives on to the rear covered porch, a large and beautifully furnished room with a delightful aspect over the secluded terraced, landscaped garden, perfect for early morning breakfast or evening cocktails, while to the side of the house an enclosed hot water shower offers a refreshing al fresco bathing alternative.

At the front of the house, the full width terrace with extended sun deck gives panoramic views of the historic Cupid's Cay and spectacular Caribbean sunsets - the Caribbean is 250 yards away from the house. The world famous French Leave beach is a one minute car ride away, over the hill on the eastern, Atlantic side of the island.

Situated as it is in the center of the community, all amenities are within walking distance. Charming local cafes, grocery and liquor stores are no more than three minutes walk away. Local fishermen (one is our next door neighbor), sell lobster, conch & grouper down the road every afternoon at the water's edge. The legendary Governor's Harbour Friday night fish fry is a four minute stroll, as is the historic Haynes Library, cultural hub of the local community.

traveler reviews for this eleuthera house rental

Amazing!

Review submitted: March 26, 2014   Date of arrival: March 1, 2014

This place is amazing! Just like the other reviewers, when we walked in, we said “wow…”! The place is spacey, airy and perfectly designed… a fully equipped kitchen, a huge bathroom, a beautiful bedroom with a screened outdoor patio with gorgeous flowers planted in the backyard. One of my favorites was the white crispy sheets we slept on ?. The neighbor is a local fisherman who would tell you all about diving and even might take an order for fresh fish delivery you could grill in the backyard for dinner. And the most important things is that the owners, and the home caretaker Arnold, are truly pleasant people to deal with, very helpful, caring and accommodating. We will definitely be back again.

Beautiful House

Review submitted: March 4, 2014   Date of arrival: February 15, 2014

Just wanted to tell you how much I enjoyed staying in your house in Governor’s Harbour. A beautiful house, comfortable, clean, bright, and well equipped.

French Leave beach is just spectacular, and the folks on Eleuthera were as warm and welcoming as anyone I’ve ever met. Arnold is a kind and talented fellow. I think you are lucky to be working with him.

All in all, a delightful time …

Amazing house-amazing vacation!

Review submitted: May 3, 2013   Date of arrival: April 12, 2013

It was our first time in Bahamas, first time on Eleuthera. I can say from the beginning that we were not sure what to expect for...but I definitely can say that we found a wonderful surprise. The white Low Cay house, gave us a warm welcome, we loved it from start. We felt like home, we found there everything we needed, very clean and supplied cottage. I loved the white color in the entire house, defined by natural wood furniture, spacious and bright rooms, little garden, nice porch and back terrace, spacious living room etc.
The house location is very convenient indeed, you have access to town and to beaches, as well as easy access by car to other sights of the island.
We had a lot of doubts on what rental to choose, but the review of Kimia P., helped us a lot, I am glad we could read it before we made our decision. I really hope my review will help other people experience the same positive staying, as we did. I can't find enough words to express our feelings, we loved it a lot.
We are grateful and we would like to sincerely thank Chris and Carolyn for giving us the chance to feel like home in their Low Cay !
