vacation rental description

Up the Hill, owned by a descendant of one of the founding families of Governor’s Harbour, sits on 4 private acres on Banks Road with 180 degree sweeping views of the Atlantic Ocean. Walk or drive down to the bottom of our long driveway and enjoy our private beach access to one of Eleuthera’s premier pink sand beaches. This island cottage offers the ultimate in privacy, yet is just a 7-minute walk to famous Tippy’s restaurant and beach bar, a 10-minute walk to the Bahamas National Trust Leon Levy Preserve, a 3-minute drive to the Beach House Restaurant, and a 5-minute drive into Governor’s Harbour with its stores and restaurants.

Enjoy the island breezes on the new wrap around deck with its fifty mile ocean views, and watch the sun rise from the front and back patios with gas grill and furniture for lounging and dining.

Up the Hill’s open floor plan incorporates an air-conditioned, sun filled living/dining area surrounded by 8 ft. high sliding glass doors with unobstructed views in every direction. There are two generously sized and tropically decorated bedrooms, one with a queen bed, and one with twins that can be converted to a king. Each bedroom features sliding glass doors to the deck or patio and independent air conditioning. They are connected by a large bathroom with an indoor shower and a delightful outdoor shower. There is also a half bath adjacent to the twin bedded room.

The fully equipped kitchen is stocked with everything you might need from a yogurt maker to that perfect glass for your rum punch. As you enter from the front patio, a small office with built-in desk, phone, and computer access, (if you MUST check your work e-mails!!) also provides extra sleeping space for children on our roll-a-way bed or inflatable mattress.

Amenities at Up the Hill include:

traveler reviews for this eleuthera cottage rental

A beautiful, well kept, hidden jewel of a rental!

Review submitted: June 29, 2014   Date of arrival: June 18, 2014

We have been coming to Eleuthera for the past twenty years, and have stayed in many rental properties. Up the Hill was by far, the cleanest and best organized property we have ever rented. The house was immaculate, any and every thing you could need was there....cooler, beach chairs, washer, and all new appliances. The owners even provided a cell phone for our use. Tony and Joan corresponded with us throughout our stay, and Chris - the caretaker - was extremely knowledgeable about the house, and the island. The off road location of the house provided a quiet respite, a world of our own, and a central location for exploring other areas of the island. The view from the balcony was spectacular. A short walk to a beautiful pink sand beach or to Tippy's for lunch or dinner. The house is close to several grocery and liquor stores, the deli, the Leon Levy Nature Preserve, the horse farm, and swimming. Just a lovely, lovely home. Please try Up the Hill on your next visit to Eleuthera; we will definitely return to it.

Lovely family retreat!

Review submitted: April 17, 2014   Date of arrival: March 28, 2014

This is a beautiful little cottage, perfect for a family. It has views of the ocean and is just a short walk to one of the most beautiful beaches on Eleuthera. The house is well-stocked and comfortable with a constant breeze and the smell of hibiscus from the gardens. Private, yet conveniently located.

Owners response: We appreciate your review of Up the Hill and are so pleased your family enjoyed our home and location. The beaches of Eleuthera are truly amazing and we consider ourselves incredibly fortunate to be situated where we are! Thank you!

Ideal location, ideal house

Review submitted: March 30, 2014   Date of arrival: March 19, 2014

Up the Hill was absolutely lovely! The home itself was centrally located - close to spectacular beaches (is there any other kind on Eleuthera?) and to the town Governor's Harbour. It was very well-equipped - the kitchen had everything you could ever need. We actually appreciated being up on the hill vs. right on the beach as the outlook was excellent and there were fewer bugs. Moreover, we enjoyed hearing the birds in the surrounding trees. Tony and Joan, the owners, were helpful and very professional. Julianna, who manages the property, was also a dream to deal with.

Owners response: Thank you for taking the time to review Up the Hill. We're so glad you appreciated our location as much as we do....being on the hill, we rarely have a day without a breeze, yet we are close enough to the beach to hear the ocean. No doubt the hummingbirds entertained you on the front patio, and the mockingbirds joined in from the top branches of the dilly tree beside the deck! We wholeheartedly agree with your comments about Julianna.....she has a real knack for matching guests with houses. We're so pleased you enjoyed your vacation and hope you will find your way back to Eleuthera one day.
