vacation rental description

Welcome to Alfred House, a new, luxurious, and secluded beachfront estate on the north end of world-famous French Leave Beach (formerly Club Med Beach). There are no houses between this house and the mile-long beach of pink sand where a Club Med once stood, the most sought-after beach location on Eleuthera. The ocean is turquoise, shallow, and historically safe, having served Club Med well for many years. Enjoy thousands of feet of deserted beachfront, extensive ocean views from every major room, and the sound and smell of the ocean from everywhere.

Alfred House is a newly constructed, 4000-square-foot, 5-bedroom Bahamian Colonial home plus one-bedroom guest cottage, located just 50 feet from the beach. The house was designed and decorated to reflect the laid back feeling of the cabanas at the Bitter End Yacht Club, Virgin Gorda. Both the upstairs and downstairs of Alfred House have a wall of glass french windows, so as you move through the house, you see the sea at every turn. The house is furnished with distressed Indian teak antiques and custom pieces made of teak, mango, & cherry woods, and black and white photographs of movie icons.

Downstairs, Alfred House features a vast great room that looks out through a wall of glass french doors at the beach and ocean. The open-plan kitchen faces the ocean, and features custom wooden white shelving with Mexican shell encrusted stone countertops. Appliances are stainless steel. The kitchen island is capped with a ten-foot teak counter with matching teak bar stools.

There are Honduran hardwood floors, cypress cedar ceilings, marble and slate tile, and mini-split air conditioning units. The upstairs features a huge media room overlooking the sea, along with four bedrooms, with a fifth bedroom downstairs. Four of the bedrooms have ocean views. The fifth has a hill/sunset view. Three large bedrooms have king beds; the two smaller bedrooms have two twin beds in each. The three king suites have ensuite bathrooms. There is a powder/shower room downstairs.

The upstairs sun deck, with its grand row of honduran mahogany shutters, runs the length of the house (60 ft), with miles of beach and ocean views. It is furnished with comfortable white lounge chairs. Beneath it is a covered terrace, a shady spot for enjoying the sea breeze and the sound of the ocean. The floor of the terrace contains a lovely mosaic of a conch made by a local island artist.

Alfred's guest cottage, called Med Point, is perched right on the edge of the ocean with a huge 1100-square-foot teak wrap-around deck. The cottage is available for an additional charge (see Rates for details). If you don't require use of the guest cottage, it will be left empty. We will not rent it to anyone else.

Amenities at Alfred House include full AC, a large flat-screen TV with DVD in the media room, high-speed internet with WIFI. The house does not have cable or satellite TV.

Alfred House is surrounded by over 20 acres of secluded wild nature, full of casuarina trees, coconut palms, giant cacti, sea grape and lettuce, even though we are only a mile or so from town. (See the aerial view). Explore French Leave Beach, and see the ruins of the old Club Med, which was swept away by a hurricane. The grounds and gardens of Alfred House have palms, palmettos, cacti, hibiscus, and oleander. We have a beautiful copper coloured coral garden off the Med Point deck, on which geckos sun themselves, and which has a natural blowhole that spouts water 30 feet on windy days. There is excellent snorkeling right off our property.

WALK 20 MINUTES INTO TOWN, through Club Med Beach, and buy lobster or grouper, freshly caught every day around 2 pm. The local fishermen will clean the fish for you, and provide only lobster tails, if you wish.

A 15 minute walk down the beach from Alfred House will take you to the beautiful Beach House Restaurant, where you can enjoy tapas and drinks on the large beachfront deck. The famous bar/restaurant Tippy's is just two miles away, and you can drive through Club Med beachfront to reach it. A 20 minute walk (or 5 minute drive) in the other direction takes you to Sky Beach Bistro, another great beachfront restaurant and pool bar.

amazing vacation home at amazing location-- secluded and private-- perfect vacation home to get away and enjoy solitude -- Christine and the rest of the support staff were beyond expectations-- we enjoyed dinners prepared by Christine and dining out at the near by Beach House and Tippy's-- In short Alfred House has our highest recommendation.

We had a wonderful visit!

Review submitted: May 31, 2014   Date of arrival: April 12, 2014

Your home is beautiful and we loved everything about Eleuthera and our stay at Alfred House. It was the perfect spot to relax and a wonderful place to come home to after our many adventures in and around the island. Your welcome letter and tips were so helpful. My children said Eleuthera is one of their very favorite places we've ever visited (and we travel quite a bit). We all hope we can return one day soon! Many thanks again!

Eleuthera Paradise

Review submitted: April 15, 2014   Date of arrival: April 5, 2014

This a beautiful home in an ideal location - five minutes to Gov. Harbour. Situated on two pristine beaches that have a completely "private" feel, even during the height of Spring Break travel. The caretaker, Christine, was very helpful and attentive, and the owner and her agents were very responsive to the small issues that arose during our visit. Can't wait to return.
