This charming new suite is located 100 yards from the Caribbean and a short walk from the new Leorose beach bar and grill. The JC villa has two bedrooms, one bath, full kitchen, and living and dining areas.
The village of James Cistern, a 5 minute walk from the house, has two grocery stores, two restaurants, and a dock where fisherman bring in their catch and offer it for sale.
The town of Governors Harbour, the main town on the island, is just 15 minutes by car from the property. Governors Harbour has grocery stores, restaurants, liquor stores, two banks with ATMs, a bakery, gift shops, a dive shop, and a medical clinic. It has a nice little collection of 19th century homes and churches overlooking a picturesque harbor. You can buy fresh fish and lobster every afternoon from fisherman at the town dock. Friday night Fish Fry in Governors Harbour is a street/beach party that brings together all the tourists and locals with food, drink, and dancing in the street.
The island of Eleuthera is most famous for its 100 miles of spectacular, deserted beaches. It has a population of just 8000, and everyone knows everyone. It’s famous for being very safe. I pick up every hitch-hiker I pass on the island, for example, and I never take my keys out of my car. The snorkeling and diving on the island are world class. There are many reefs which you can snorkel or dive right from the beach. The fishing is also excellent, because the island is so undeveloped and thinly populated. Bonefishing is very big, as is deep sea fishing and reef fishing. You can fish on your own or hire a guide. Boating, surfing, and other water sports are also popular. You can rent power boats, sailboats, sea kayaks (included at Buttonwood for free), paddle boards, jet skis, bikes (included at Buttonwood for free), and scooters. You can have a charter captain take you out for fishing, snorkeling, or diving excursions. You can go horseback riding on the beach and on trails. There are several popular spots for cliff jumping, including some tame enough for children. There is excellent sightseeing as well. Eleuthera has vast caves, cliffs, a bottomless ocean hole, dozens of beaches, each one unique, some historic churches and 19th century home’s, and little villages to explore. There are local tour guides who can show you around. The island is truly magical.
