Elisa's cottage is part of the squires estate collection of
beautifully restored 19th century homes on the hill above governors
harbour, furnished with antiques from around the world. The décor
and level of finish will delight the most discriminating world
traveller. Our manager will greet you upon arrival and be available
to assist you as needed. She can arrange for daily housekeeping, a
private chef, or a car rental (extra charges apply), and provide
advice about island activities. Other staff at squires estate
include a full-time gardener and housekeepers. Laundry and ironing
services are provided on the premises at no charge. Elisa's cottage
can be combined with other historic homes and cottages in the
squires estate collection for larger groups.
The town of governors harbour, a three-minute walk down the hill,
has a charming collection of 19th century homes and churches
overlooking its historic harbour. Buy fresh fish and lobster every
afternoon from fisherman at the town dock, or visit the recently
restored haynes library, which dates from 1897, for the weekly
coffee hour for foreign residents and tourists. Governors harbour
has grocery stores, restaurants, liquor stores, two banks with
atms, a bakery, gift shops, 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.
Walking over the hill in the other direction takes you to French
leave beach, the finest beach on the island and one of the great
beaches of the Caribbean. By foot, it's about 10 minutes to french
leave, a mile-long crescent of pink sand which is literally
deserted most of the time. Most visitors to eleuthera rent a car,
because the island is rural and spread out, and a car is the only
practical way to get around. By car, elisa's cottage is just a
minute from French leave beach.
Free flights: a stay of four nights or longer entitles you to
flight credits or two free round-trip tickets from nassau to
eleuthera. Some black-out periods and restrictions apply.
