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

Stunning House, Great Owners

Review submitted: January 17, 2014   Date of arrival: January 4, 2014

Located on a beutiful island, Sweet Corn House is exactly what the pictures show, a wonderfully designed, light and airy, modern plantation-style compound that is a joy to live in and experience. It is exceptionally clean, well-designed, with roomy individual bedrooms, a great central room perfect for entertaining and meals/TV / reading. The kitchen had everything one could want as in your own home, and all the applicances worked as one would expect.

A word must be spoken about the master suite, an incredibly welcoming, well-viewed, fresh room taking up the entire second floor of the house. The breezes, morning sunlight, afternnon sunsets made it so easy to forget about work and really know you were on vacation.

The grounds were perfectly sized, with wrap-around verandas encircling the house; a nice-sized pool to the side and ample parking for all of your guests. Sufficient chairs, towels, beach items, pool items were all available on site. It was actually hard to leave it was so comfortable.

Situated on the top of the hill, central to Governor's Harbor, it enjoys a view in all directions. The village itself is a five minute walk down the hill, and should be explored at least once. Going down the other Atlantic side toward the beautiful French Leave Beach( old Club Med site), probably closer to a ten to fifteen minute walk, which I found a tad more comfortable to drive.

There are limited but sufficient eateries and restaurants in about the island if one is choosing to stay at governor's Harbour. Some of the ones we ate at several times include: Beach House( try the shrimp dish, good fritters; lots of activity due to its key beach access location; nice bar, several nights really hopping to live music; located 1.2 miles from the house); Tippy's Bar, 2.0 miles from the house, located just a small distance further down the same Blanks Road, is slightly more upscale restaurant where the food is good, most seats are bug free, music also claims several nights; probably the most upscale near to the property; Sunset Restaurant, just a mile south of town on Queens Highway, offering nice fish dishes, a good steak and nice service; Buccaneer, a close by family bistro (don't miss the pork/chicken/beef friend rice plate), Sammy's down south, Leapin Lizard up north.

Bob/Kathy, owners, are wonderful, exceptionally birght Brits who provide the hospitality as if you are long term friends. Together they designed/built this complex. Miss them terrifically !

Sweet Summer at Sweet Corn

Review submitted: August 15, 2013   Date of arrival: August 3, 2013

Really lovely house in Governor's Harbour, with a bright and clean aesthetic and it's own pool. Walking down to the harbour is easy, and a wonderful pastime especially early morning. Equally, the house is close to French Leave Beach with casual a fun spots like the Beach House, Banks Road Deli and Tippy's only a two-minute drive away. We found the location and accommodation perfect for our family,and a wonderful centrally located base from which to explore the rest of the island.
