A golf cart for Governors Estate and other news !

This week – news of a golf cart for Governors Estate and a visit to Harbour Island……. We decided to buy a golf cart for the Yellow House – so if you book now you will get use of the lovely 6 seater golf cart. It is perfect for a ride down to French Leave Beach – or more importantly for a ride back up the hill to the house ! It is a tester first to see how well it works – and in time we hope to add them to each house.

Also take note that if you book and take a vacation here at Governors Estate in one of our 3 houses before December 19th 2017 then you will get a free rental car. This offer does not apply to the Peach House apartments…….

Did I mention that we are installing heaters for the swimming pools as well ?  And by Christmas we will have back-up power to all of our Governors Estate properties – no more sitting there wondering how long the power outage may last ! it is a continual process to try to make sure that we offer the best value and best facilities for rental properties on the island …….

Last weekend we decided to take a quick trip up to Harbour Island. Manfredi Mancini who owns and runs Aqua Pazza Restaurant has moved location and was having an informal opening party. the new location is a Romora Bay Resort…….

On the way up we stopped for a great lunch at The Surf Shack in Gregory Town. Jen and Bill do a great job together. Jen is front of house and is a lot fun to chat with plus she makes a killer Bloody Caeser ! Bill is in the kitchen – he reminds me of one of those rare reclusive mountain lions that you hardly ever see – but it is very exciting when you do spot him !  Bob had Caeser salad with seared  fresh tuna  – delicious …. And I had a crab cake roll with Bill’s special coleslaw and fries. So darned good !

Not the best picture I know - but I love the logo !

On to Harbour Island and an overnight stay at Romora Bay. It was good to see lots of local HI people enjoying themselves at AquaPazza and we met up with a few people we know and had a good chat – catching up is always fun. We were delighted as well that the party finished at 9pm promptly – just in time for our bedtime !!!!!

Nearly ready for bed !

Pretty much everywhere was closed up there so breakfast was a bag of chips while waiting for the water taxi – then back home in time for a great lunch at Bacchus Fine Foods with Mum and good friend Amanda. Mum is feeling much better now and has started swimming again and topping up her tan – always a great sign that we are happy to see…….

Loving it.....

Please remember dear Joy Pyfrom and send a prayer her way….. She fell and broke her hip last weekend and is not doing too well in hospital in Nassau. Many of you responded when I wrote about dear Joy in an early blog. She is a great character and has been a mine of information about the recent history of Eleuthera…… Joy we are thinking of you……

  1. Thank you so much for letting us know about Joy Pyfrom’s fall. My husband Ian has known her for 55 years since the days when he worked on the island for Barclays Bank DCO!

  2. The golf carts? Nice competitive upgrade! And the generators? Now let’s hope and continue to pray that we have no storms that undo all the good that has come to Eleuthera in your wake. Yes! Joy is not a happy camper. Aging is one of life’s hardest things to do…gracefully…as she has for her many years. We are thankful to have enjoyed both her company and wisdom.
