trees, bougainvillea, hibiscus, aloe and coconut palms. Those are
just a few of the plants that grace this serene property.
The town of Governors Harbour, a one-minute walk down the hill,
has a charming collection of 19th century homes and churches
overlooking its historic harbor. 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, Mrs. Russel's is just a minute
from French Leave Beach.
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. Enjoy the rare experience of
picking up hitch-hikers and leaving your keys in the car wherever
you go. The snorkeling, diving, and fishing on the island are world
class. Boating, surfing, and other water sports are also popular.
You can rent power boats, sailboats, sea kayaks, bikes. You can
have a charter captain take you out for excursions of various
types. 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 Pyfrom House and experience all our
island has to offer.
