-We were able to borrow a cell phone which made driving around the island alone more comfortable
-Really comfortable beds
-Well stocked kitchen kitchen with plenty f appliances
-Fans and individual AC units

The Sweet Corn house was beautiful. From its design, layout,quality construction and furnishings, it was all perfect. The location was also very nice up on the hill with the breezes off the Atlantic and made us not even need the air conditioning. The pool was very nice as well, it got used a lot and the kids loved it! not to mention the adults. We would definitely consider staying here again in the future. Thanks you.

Our family of 4 spent 10 days at Sweet Corn House. We have been to Eleuthera many times but this was the first time we have stayed in town. The house was great and everything was exactly as advertised on the website. The house sits on top of the hill and there is a great view of the Atlantic as well as a great breeze on the upstairs deck. The kids loved having a pool and we enjoyed the convenient location – close to town, restaurants and beaches. We could walk home from the fish fry. Because we were so centrally located, we found time to accomplish a few new things this trip. We spent a fabulous day down south at Whiteland Beach, we taught the kids how to snorkel at Ten Bay and we finally got around to visiting the Leon Levy Preserve. Bob and Kathy were great hosts. Kathy checked in every now and then to make sure we were doing well, and Bob really bailed us out on Sunday morning when our rental car decided not to start just when we needed to head to the airport. We also got to pick fresh lettuce, tomatoes, basil and other goodies from Kathy’s vegetable garden. Julianna and Tara were helpful in making reservations and also checked in during our stay to see how we were doing. I would not hesitate to recommend this property.

Stunning House, Great Owners

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 !

The island is lovely, a bit remote but everyone is so friendly and willing to offer up advice you never feel deserted..so safe, we never locked our doors….Everything was super simple! Thank you so much.

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.
