Mrs. Russel's House, Eleuthera, Bahamas Vacation Rental
Mrs Russell’s House is an artistic blend of the historic and contemporary — a delightful house dating back to the early 1800s. During the recent restoration, the original historic architecture was preserved while accommodating the needs of modern luxury living, including state-of-the-art fixtures, appliances, and electronics, and an ocean view infinity-edge pool.
Mixing original furnishings with a unique blend of creatively researched pieces, Mrs. Russell’s renowned Italian architect created a sense of Colonial nostalgia that is unique and delightful.
The house has a large formal living room, elegant formal dining room with seating for six, and a fully equipped island kitchen with gas cooktop and state-of-the-art appliances. Mrs. Russell’s House has three full-size bedrooms. Two feature king-sized beds and the third has twin beds. There are 3 luxurious modern bathrooms with showers.
Mrs. Russell’s estate is surrounded by a lush garden which is home to many fruit trees, bougainvillea, hibiscus, aloe and coconut palms. The infinity pool is the perfect place to relax, with the pool deck fielding dramatic views of the harbour, which add to the delight of the well- manicured grounds. A large terrace overlooks the pool and harbour with beautiful ocean and sunset views.
Mrs. Russel's 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. Mrs. Russel's 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, Mrs. Russel's House is just a minute from French leave beach.
