Description of the Governor's Harbour vacation home rental
This beautifully restored and modernized estate home of the late Sir Roland Symonette, first Premier of the Bahamas, retains its original elegance while enjoying modern comforts and conveniences. Hearts Ease, as Sir Roland named it, sits on a hill above a beautiful pink-sand beach. Hearts Ease enjoys spectacular 50-mile, 180-degree views of the beach and ocean below. It's a short 100-yard walk down the hill to the beach.

At the entrance of the villa, you are greeted by three sets of French doors that open into an expansive Great Room looking out upon the ocean. The 16 foot ceilings, lovingly restored paneled walls, fireplace, and antique chandeliers combine with the views to make a stunning first impression. To the right is the Master Bedroom with private deck, large en suite bath and queen-size canopy bed, a spacious and delightful room. To the left of the Great Room is the kitchen, fully equipped with stainless steel appliances, granite counter tops, and sliding glass doors to the patio.

In addition to the Master Suite, Hearts Ease has two guest bedrooms, each with an en suite bathroom. Each guest bedroom has access to a private outdoor sitting area, closet, and queen bed. Hearts Ease has a powder room convenient to the Great Room, and a large and fully equipped laundry room with washer and dryer.

At the back of the house overlooking the ocean is a fully equipped outdoor bar and kitchen, complete with gas grill and outdoor dining area. The large screened porch and a roof top deck have spectacular ocean views. After a day on the beach, enjoy our private outdoor shower. Heart Ease is beautifully landscaped with tropical flowers, palm trees, and fruit and nut trees.

Hearts Ease is just 100 feet from a large and lovely pool shared with several other homes. A five minute walk takes you to Sky Beach Club's excellent beachfront/poolside restaurant and bar, which has poolside service all day long. Other nearby fine dining includes Cocodimama, five minutes by car, and Tippys and the Beach House, both 10 minutes by car. The picturesque town of Governors Harbour, less then three miles away, has grocery stores, banks with ATMs, gift shops, liquor stores, dive shop, bakery, and restaurants.

Hearts Ease is fully equipped to make your stay as comfortable as possible. Amenities include air conditioning, WIFI, landline phone, satellite TV, DVD player with video library, stereo system with CD player, video games, library of books, board games, children's toys, beach chairs, beach towels, cooler, and snorkeling equipment.

Come relax and find peace at Hearts Ease, just as Sir Roland would have wished for you.

Area Information
The town of Governors Harbour, 3 miles away, has a charming collection of 19th century homes and churches overlooking its historic harbor. The recently restored Haynes Library, which dates from 1897, hosts a 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.

The island of Eleuthera is famous for its 100 miles of spectacular, deserted beaches. The island, home to just 8000 residents, is completely safe any time of the day or night. The snorkeling, diving, and fishing on the island are world class. Boating, surfing, and other water sports are also popular. There is excellent sightseeing as well. Eleuthera has vast caves, cliffs, a bottomless ocean hole, many unique beaches, historic churches and 19th century homes, and small villages to explore. We hope you will enjoy our Lush Life, and experience all our island has to offer.
