vacation rental description

Brand new! This elegant designer villa was just completed in March of 2013. Set on an elevated lot and built with an abundance of glass. The living areas open to gracious verandas on the front and to a private swimming pool to the side. Built by the island’s top custom home builder and decorated by its premier interior designer, Tops is stylish and comfortable. Tall ceilings throughout create a sense of grandeur and a spaciousness.

Tops features a large open-plan living and dining area, perfect for entertaining, and a fully equipped kitchen. The great room opens onto a veranda via two sets of sliding glass doors. There is also a powder room and laundry room off the living area.

The two bedrooms have en-suite bathrooms and walk in closets. Both have sliding glass doors that open onto a shared wrap-around veranda. The master bedroom has a king-size 4 poster bed. The second bedroom has twin beds that can be converted to a king.

Outside there are landscaped garden areas and decks as well as a small private swimming pool and patio area. Amenities include air conditioning throughout, cable TV with DVD player, and high-speed internet with wifi.

Tops is located on a hill top in Governors Harbour, in a small quiet community of vacation villas called Governor’s Estate. The town of Governors Harbour, a five-minute walk down the hill, has a charming collection of 19th century homes and churches overlooking its historic harbor. Buy fresh fish and lobster most afternoons 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, 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.

A 10-minute stroll down the hill in the other direction takes you to French Leave Beach, a mile-long crescent of pink sand that has been ranked in the top 20 beaches of the world. 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, Tops is just a minute from French Leave Beach.

Eleuthera is famous for its 100 miles of spectacular, deserted beaches. The island, home to just 11000 residents, is known for its friendliness and safety. Visitors enjoy the rare experience of picking up hitch-hikers and leaving their keys in the car. 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, jet skis, scooters, and bikes. You can have a charter captain take you out for excursions of various types. You ride horses on the beach or on trails. 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 Tops, and experience all our island has to offer.

traveler reviews for this eleuthera villa rental

A luxury gateway ! Don't hesitate !

Review submitted: August 11, 2014   Date of arrival: July 23, 2014

Looking for a modern style villa very well decorated with all the comfort ? Here is the place to go.This villa is brand new, well maintained and very clean. We felt here as at thome with all the equipments: a kitchen fully equipped, nothing is missing, you will have a real full set with all the appliances. The design of the house is perfect: large rooms, nice living room,... Nice little swimming pool. The house is well placed in Governor Harbour, just one minute to the shops. A car is mandatory if you want to explore the island (SUV recommanded). French Leave beach is just 2 minutes away. Internet is working very well (> 15 MB/s) with satellite TV, nice audio equipment to listen to your best musics :-) Don't forget to meet Daniel, the fisherman, at the dock in front of Shell gas station. Thanks to Kathy, the owner, we had a very warm welcome :-) Don't miss Rainbow beach, Harbour Island, Tippy Restaurant beach (very good snorkelling on the right).

Most memorable vacation ever!

Review submitted: July 2, 2014   Date of arrival: June 21, 2014

The Tops house exceeded our expectations! This was our first visit to Eleuthera, and we're already planning to return next year! The Tops house was immaculate and had everything we needed for our visit. The beds are VERY comfortable and there is absolute quiet at night which is so important after a busy day of exploring beaches! Kathy provides a binder with information/tips about your stay including where to shop for groceries and great restaurants. She provides a cell phone for LOCAL calls which also has her number programmed in case you need anything. Towels are provided for the beach as well as coolers/chairs/umbrella. Make sure you read the guest book for added tips from previous visitors...very helpful! The swimming pool is incredible and such a treat to take a dip after a day of ocean going. As far as location, we were able to walk down the short hill to eat at a couple of local restaurants including Da'Perk and Buccaneer Club. Tippy's is close by with wonderful food (make a reservation) and great pizza for takeout! French Leave Beach with its pink sand is less than 5 minutes away. All other beaches and activities are just a short drive from the house letting you explore multiple places every day! The Clearwater Dive Shop is down the street from Tops where you can rent snorkeling gear for a minimal fee. Most of our meals were at the Tops house. The kitchen has a toaster, microwave, coffee maker, tea kettle, oven, gas stove, fridge, dishwasher....just everything! Our stay was very private, and Kathy ONLY stopped by at our request and to wish us well on our journey home. Their sweet dog, Joe, loves to visit and fills the void for those of us missing our dogs at home! One of the best parts of our visit was sitting outside at night looking at the stars. It is an absolute MUST as you'll never see a clearer sky! Tops house does have WIFI which comes and goes on the island. However, you can drive down the street to Bob and Kathy's business and use it at any time. There are air conditioners to cool the rooms at night. Our routine was to keep everything off during the day with doors/windows open (they have screens!) and then turn on AC in bedrooms around 7 p.m. keeping the doors closed at night. Julianna and Tara from HomeAway did a great job making this vacation happen. Payments were easy and they checked on us as soon as we arrived as well as after the trip. A big thank you to both of them! We love Eleuthera and Tops House!

No worries...relax on the most beautiful beach

Review submitted: June 24, 2014   Date of arrival: May 9, 2014

The property is beautifully decorated and extremely well maintained. It has all you need and if for some reason there is the slight little thing missing to make your trip perfect, just a quick call to Kathy, the managing owner and all will be taken care of.

It is the perfect size and layout for two couples or a small family. You can retreat to your room at night for more privacy or hang out in the living area, either way, you always feel comfortable. Although there is modern air conditioning throughout, there is almost no need for it as the cross ventilation provided by the many windows and screen doors is exquisite.

Eleuthera is this hidden gem that seemed to have dodged the extreme hotel chains development sprawl of the last few decades in the Caribbeans. The beaches are absolutely beautiful. Although there are many, many beaches that you can go to, French leave, located at about 10 min. walk, is all you need.

Some people rent a car for the entire week but we opted not to. Walk back from the liquor store with a case of beer uphill was really the only challenge that is worth mentioning. Even then, locals would stop and offer to give a ride.

The beach house (bar restaurant) at the south end of French leave beach is the perfect hangout to get a little rest from the sun while throwing back a few cold ones.

If what you're craving is privacy and majestic relaxing time close to what is probably ranking among the most beautiful beaches in the world (French leave), Eleuthera and this house in particular could be the remedy.

Good times with good friends...

-Marc B.
