Belmont House, Eleuthera, Bahamas Vacation Rental
This grand historic home dates from the mid-1800s and sits high atop Buccaneer Hill with spectacular views over Governor’s Harbour, the sea and beautiful sunsets. Belmont’s facade is dominated by its grand two- story veranda looking out across the harbour.
Belmont House was decorated by a renowned Italian designer. It features exquisite contemporary furnishings – many custom made, hardwood floors and high ceilings. On the first floor, Belmont features a large living room and spacious formal dining room with seating for eight. The modern, airy, peninsula kitchen is fully equipped with stainless steel appliances, including refrigerator, dishwasher, microwave, and oven.
Upstairs features two large bedrooms, each with ocean views and direct access to the veranda, and two large and luxurious full baths. One bedroom has a king bed, and the other has two twins. Relax with a cocktail on the comfortable teak furniture of the grand veranda and enjoy a spectacular, 50-mile, 180-degree ocean and sunset view. You may find it difficult to leave. The downstairs has a third full bath and a washer and dryer. The large first-floor veranda is a delightful spot, with garden and ocean views. Amenities include flat-screen cable TV, air conditioning, wireless internet, hi-fi stereo, complimentary toiletries, and off-street parking.
Belmont House is part of the squires estate collection of beautifully restored 19th century homes on the hill above governors harbour, furnished with antiques from around the world. The décor and level of finish will delight the most discriminating world traveller. Our manager will greet you upon arrival and be available to assist you as needed. She can arrange for daily housekeeping, a private chef, or a car rental (extra charges apply), and provide advice about island activities. Other staff at squires estate include a full-time gardener and housekeepers. Laundry and ironing services are provided on the premises at no charge. Belmont House can be combined with other historic homes and cottages in the squires estate collection for larger groups.
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 harbour. 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, 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 over 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 10 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, Belmont House is just a minute from French leave beach.
