GoodWind WE have rented this house for many years. It is in a great location.

Goodwind house in May Our 10 day stay at Goodwind house and cottage was perfect for our family of 9, We loved the privacy of the bedrooms and the super large common area, living room, dining room and kitchen, and the close proximity to Governors Harbor. French Leave beach is spectacular and very private. The sun shelter is a perfect place to hang out, the snorkeling was good and the swimming superb. The bugs were a bit annoying at times but did little to diminish our enjoyment of the beach. We had a wonderful time at Goodwind House and would love to return.

Lush+Crystal Clear Water=Blissful Relaxation! The almost solid wall of diverse tropical plants around the home provides a lush, private setting. The ocean just beyond the small dune has a private 4-person palapa and only a handful of people along the mile-long beach. Soooo much better than crowded hotels where you have to race out at dawn to claim your chairs! <br/><br/>You hear the waves and the call-and-response frogs from your bedroom (we never used the AC; the ceiling fans kept us cool and with open windows connecting us to the outside rhythms). We stayed in the front downstairs bedroom and slept well. We didn&#x2019;t use the &#x201C;best&#x201D; upstairs bedroom because of mobility challenges going up the steep spiral staircase.<br/><br/>The Great Room with multiple couches, chairs and tables allows expansive relaxing when rain comes through. <br/><br/>However, be prepared for an old home. There&#x2019;s rust around some bathroom fixtures, tile work that&#x2019;s been worn down over the years, cabinet doors that don&#x2019;t fully close, missing drawer handles, and some walls cracked as the house settled over the years. The house had been closed up for awhile when we arrived; our first impression would have been better if the Great Room had been aired out for several hours in advance.<br/><br/>The Great Room and the bedrooms have tall windows that can be cranked open to provide glorious flow-through breezes, but check first to see if the window&#x2019;s screen is intact; we had to leave about 20% of them closed. Outside, there were very few bugs, if you avoid dusk outdoors.<br/><br/>The kitchen is very well equipped, with more gadgets in the drawers than we could identify. Lots of spices available. We did sandwiches rather than full meals, getting ham and turkey slices at Burrows and rolls and bread at the bakery. That balanced the cost of $80 two-person lunches at Tippy&#x2019;s and $100 two-person dinners at 1648. Tippy&#x2019;s and 1648 were really, really good. Buccaneer&#x2019;s was OK; the Sunset Inn would have been OK except for the clouds of flies. <br/

private beach paradise for our family We had a wonderful visit to Eleuthra and staying at Goodwind House was a big part of what made our stay so special. Managers, both in-advance and on-site, were very responsive, house was comfortable and well-stocked and location was perfect; mid-island and directly on what felt like a private beach paradise.

  • The price shown always changes, you have to calculate it yourself and often changes once you communicate with the owner.
  • Most owners do not take the time to provide complete information on listings, so you waste time having to ask questions and wait for responses.

Enchanting Light-Filled Villa Directly on French Leave Beach

ID 254656 - 3 beds (3 king). Base rent is for 6 occupants.
Bahamas Vacation Rentals
House, 3 Bedrooms, 3 Baths (Sleeps 6). Welcome to Goodwind House, a spacious three-bedroom villa located directly on world-famous French Leave Beach, a pristine beach renowned for its pink sand and turquoise water. French Leave Beach is 75 yards wide and over a mile long, with only five houses on the entire length. Goodwind has an abundance of glass for sweeping beach and ocean views from all major rooms. Enjoy the shifting hues and gentle sounds of the ocean from our generous screened and shaded verandas framed by elegant stucco arches.

Goodwind house is located a mile from the town of Governors Harbour on historic Banks Road, the premier location on Eleuthera, famous for its grand estates. There is an excellent reef for snorkeling a short walk down the beach, inhabited by a wide variety of reef fishes.

Goodwind House has a large light-filled great room with 360-degree views. All the windows open to catch the ocean breeze, and there are six ceiling fans (no air conditioner in great room). The great room includes a dining area with seating for up to 12 guests and a complete wet bar with ice-maker. There is seating for fifteen in the living area, centered on an entertainment center with flat screen TV and a separate projects/game table. The fully equipped kitchen is open to the great room for those who wish to entertain while cooking. The spacious screen porch has dining tables with seating for ten. There is also a large hammock, beloved by the children. There is an open deck towards the sea furnished with four recliners with end tables between them, and nearby, a gas grill for outdoor cooking.

Goodwind House sleeps 6 in beds in its three bedrooms. All bedrooms are air-conditioned. The upstairs master bedroom suite has a king-size four-poster bed, his and hers closets, and a large bathroom with a walk-in shower.

Downstairs are two more bedrooms, both with king beds, and two more bathrooms, one with a walk-in shower and one with a shower-tub combination. There is also a laundry room with a washer and dryer.

Goodwind comes with everything you need to enjoy our beautiful beach. There
are six beach chairs, a sixteen by eight foot shade house , and plenty of
beach toys. The more adventurous can explore the nearby reefs and beaches in
our three SEA KAYAKS.

French Leave Beach is an idyllic, mile-long, crescent-shaped beach. There are only five houses on the entire length of this spectacular beach. The surf is very mild, protected by a large reef system that parallels the shore. The water on French Leave Beach is literally crystal clear: with no rivers or streams on the island, Eleuthera's seas are free of sediment and among the clearest in the world.

Tippy's famous beachside restaurant is just a mile away (you can also walk the beach to get there). Both offer fine dining and live entertainment. Other upscale restaurants within easy driving distance include La Bougainvillea Restaurant and Bar, 1648 and Pascals's at Sky Beach Club.

Goodwind House sleeps 6 in its three bedrooms. If you have a larger group, we have another house 150 feet away that you can rent along with it. Please inquire for details.
