Pine Street Governors Harbour, Eleuthera XXXXX Bahamas

LOVINGLY RESTORED SEA CAPTAIN'S HOUSE IN FRIENDLY, HISTORIC GOVERNOR'S HARBOUR

A white picket fence and palm trees welcome you to this elegant 19th century home, nestled on a quiet street among other colonial houses in historic Governor's Harbour, the original capitol of the Bahamas.

Built by Captain John Bethel of 'Sloop John B' fame, Tamarind is an airy, four-bedroom home that sleeps up to eight guests in comfort. It has two full baths and complete kitchen (all remodeled), front parlor and dining room.


You will also enjoy the wrap-around verandah and private back patio, perfect for sunning or entertaining.

Tamarind is decorated with country antiques, grass mats, ceiling fans and tasteful art. Its spacious garden is filled with tropical flowering plants and fruit trees. Our family has made every effort to maintain the charming grace of this historic home.

From Tamarind you are just a few steps from the town center and the sleepy harbour, with its lovely cove beaches and boats at anchor. You are also a ten minute walk or short drive to one of the Caribbean's most spectacular beaches. A one and a half mile crescent of pink powder sand, protected by a live barrier reef, with innumerable shades of turquoise, green and blue water stretching to the horizon.

Amenities include WIFI and cable TV.

THE TOWN AND THE ISLAND

Governor's Harbour is a small, quiet town on the Family Island of Eleuthera, offering a collection of distinctive colonial homes, historic churches, and colorful Bahamian buildings. The natural beauty of Eleuthera is only exceeded by the grace and warmth of its people, a primary reason vacationing couples and families return again and again to this island community.

You will find all the services you need in town; grocery stores, gift shops, post office, banks, gas station, dive shop, liquor store and bakery. There are also several good local restaurants to chose from, and a few colorful local bars.

In addition, regular weekly events in town include a fish fry most Friday nights on one of the harbour's beaches, and a Saturday morning arts and crafts program for children at the historic Haynes Library. Most of these amenities are within easy walking distance from Tamarind.

There are no casinos or flashy nightclubs on Eleuthera: the local Bahamians prefer a more sedate, relaxed atmosphere.

The island of Eleuthera is 110 miles long and an average of only two miles wide. Governor's Harbour is located in the middle of Eleuthera, making day excursions easy. The entire island is ringed by world-class beaches, some of which you will have all to yourself.

There are many interesting settlements up and down the island. In addition, you will be able to enjoy fabulous fishing (deep sea and bone fishing), snorkeling and Scuba diving, golf and tennis. Or, you could just relax on the verandah with a good book from Tamarind's library.
