vacation rental description

Welcome to Sweet Corn House, a new and elegant three-bedroom, four-bath Colonial home on the hill above Governors Harbour. Sweet Corn is graced by shady, wrap-around verandas overlooking landscaped tropical gardens and a private swimming pool.

The first floor of Sweet Corn features a large and sunny open-plan living area ideal for entertaining. The great room has lounge seating for five+ and dining room seating for six. The island kitchen, with stainless steel appliances, is open to the great room and features additional bar-chair seating. There is an adjacent powder room and laundry room.

The first floor of Sweet Corn has two separate bedroom suites with full baths, one with a queen bed and one with a king bed. The king bedroom suite has a kitchenette and can be accessed from the great room or directly from the garden via a separate keyed entrance.

The second floor of Sweet Corn is devoted entirely to the master bedroom suite. This spacious suite features a luxurious modern bathroom, two private balconies, and a private sun deck with views of the Atlantic Ocean. Sweet Corn has air conditioning throughout the house, cable TV, DVD player, wifi internet, land line telephone, travel crib, and an outdoor gas grill.

Sweet Corn is one of five homes on the estate formerly owned by Sir Harold Christie, and on which his gracious Bahamian Colonial mansion still stands. Sweet Corn can be rented along with other homes on the estate to accommodate larger groups. Daily housekeeping, private chef, and other services are always available on the estate for an additional charge.

The town of Governors Harbour, a three-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 down 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 8 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, Sweet Corn House is just a minute from French Leave Beach.

traveler reviews for this eleuthera house rental

Beautiful home, perfect location, wonderful owner

Review submitted: August 1, 2014   Date of arrival: July 11, 2014

Sweet Corn is a beautifully decorated home, in a perfect location with a wonderful owner who goes out of her way to make your stay enjoyable..

Kathy, the owner, greeted us with a tray of lasagna when we arrived. She told us about the house and the island. She made us feel like old friends who were truly welcome. She recommended wonderful restaurants such as Tippy's and the Beach House (our favorite). She suggested places to shop such as Island Farms for fresh produce and Bristol Liquors for the best wine selection..She went out of her way several times to help us. On Sunday she ordered the World Cup game on pay-per-view when the free broadcast went off five minutes into the game and my nephew almost had a meltdown. Unfortunately my husband got strep throat during the trip and she recommended a doctor right down the street who was able to prescribe medicine that helped him recover very quickly.

We love to cook and the kitchen was fully equipped. I hate to arrive in a rental where the cupbaoards are completely bare and there are only two pans. Every type of pot and pan was provided. Everything we looked for was there, from a salad spinner to a pineapple corer. I could have baked a cake! There were basic spice and condiments that we used to prepare a fish dinner on the grill 5 of the 10 nights of our stay. It was simple to buy fresh fish, just walk down the hill to Govenor's Harbour and buy it from the fisherman who come in with their catch every afternoon.

We enjoyed being able to walk to French Leave (Club Med) beach when the men were out fishing with the car. There were backpack chairs in the pool house that made it easy to carry our "supplies" to the beach. The pool was perfect, a ledge you could sit on to read or you could get one of the toys from the pool house and have a floating happy hour after a long day at the beach.

The location is ideal. We were able to walk to Govenor's Harbor to enjoy the pastries from the bakery and breakfast from Da Perk several mornings. We walked to the fish fry twice and were lucky enough to be there on Wednesday for their Junkanoo festival. We enjoyed mingling with the local people and eating the delicious local food. The Buccaneer was a short walk from the house if you wanted a snack and they serve a good breakfast too.many times.

My husband said that he never needs to visit another island villa (we've been to 26), it would be ok with him if we returned to Sweet Corn every year.

Sweet Corn was amazing and beautiful!!!

Review submitted: May 17, 2014   Date of arrival: May 5, 2014

The Sweet Corn house was beautiful. From its design, layout,quality construction and furnishings, it was all perfect. The location was also very nice up on the hill with the breezes off the Atlantic and made us not even need the air conditioning. The pool was very nice as well, it got used a lot and the kids loved it! not to mention the adults. We would definitely consider staying here again in the future. Thanks you.

Sweet time at Sweet Corn.

Review submitted: April 29, 2014   Date of arrival: April 10, 2014

Our family of 4 spent 10 days at Sweet Corn House. We have been to Eleuthera many times but this was the first time we have stayed in town. The house was great and everything was exactly as advertised on the website. The house sits on top of the hill and there is a great view of the Atlantic as well as a great breeze on the upstairs deck. The kids loved having a pool and we enjoyed the convenient location – close to town, restaurants and beaches. We could walk home from the fish fry. Because we were so centrally located, we found time to accomplish a few new things this trip. We spent a fabulous day down south at Whiteland Beach, we taught the kids how to snorkel at Ten Bay and we finally got around to visiting the Leon Levy Preserve. Bob and Kathy were great hosts. Kathy checked in every now and then to make sure we were doing well, and Bob really bailed us out on Sunday morning when our rental car decided not to start just when we needed to head to the airport. We also got to pick fresh lettuce, tomatoes, basil and other goodies from Kathy’s vegetable garden. Julianna and Tara were helpful in making reservations and also checked in during our stay to see how we were doing. I would not hesitate to recommend this property.
