All of the properties are designed and furnished to a high standard ensuring that your vacation is a comfortable, relaxing and enjoyable experience.

They all have cable TV, WiFi internet, DVD player, and a selection of DVDs plus a local cell phone for guests’ use while staying with us.

There is a 4 bedroom house which sleeps 8 with a private pool. A 3 bedroom house which sleeps 6 with a private pool. A 2 bedroom house which sleeps 4 also with a private pool. And finally 2 one bedroom apartments which sleep 2 people in each apartment.

Governors Estate is located on a hilltop above the Village of Governors Harbour. It’s a short 5-minute walk down the hill to the town. Down the hill in the other direction is secluded French Leave Beach, a spectacular, mile-long, pink-sand beach considered one of the finest in the Bahamas.

Governors Harbour has a lovely collection of 19th century homes and churches overlooking its historic harbor.

Buy fresh fish and lobster most afternoons from fishermen 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.
