Overview

Photos and Description of this 3 bedroom holiday villa in Governor's Harbor - La Bougainvillea

La Bougainvillea is an ocean front estate, situated on 30 acres, with 1,200 feet on the ocean, rolling silver palm forest, outdoor pool, large outdoor patio, three bedrooms, and two and a half bathrooms. The home is equipped with housekeeping Monday - Friday, two gardeners, groundskeeper, satellite T.V., wifi internet, DVD/CD player, A/C, BBQ grill, full kitchen, and laundry room.

The property is located on one of Eleuthera’s most pristine, private beaches, with it’s powder-like pink sand, and clear waters. Coral reefs are nestled nearby the shoreline, and make a great attraction for snorkeling. The house comes with two double kayaks and two paddle boards.

La Bougainvillea was built by the Austrian born, original home owner, designed to incorporate indoor and outdoor living.

The second room sleeps a queen- size bed, and shares a full bathroom with the third bedroom, which sleeps two full-size beds. Both bedrooms include A/C, armoires, and fans for your convenience.

The home is conveniently located 15 minutes from Governor's Harbour Airport (GHB). Car rental service, taxi service, and other important information can be provided upon request.

Neighboring property, 7 Palms, is available for rent along with La Bougainvillea to accommodate larger parties.

About Ryan Jaekel

Hi!

I fell in love with Eleuthera the very first time I drove through the Island. I was looking for a place that was not commercialized. A place that can bring you back to a simpler time. I was not sure such a placed still existed. Well, fortunately there is! I hope you will enjoy Seven Palms.

Best wishes,

Tom

Ryan Jaekel purchased this villa in 2003

Why Ryan Jaekel chose Governor's Harbor

La Bougainvillea is uniquely located near Governor's Harbour and restaurants but far enough away to ensure the privacy and nature most people seek when visiting Eleuthera. Not many properties offer you 70 acres of silver palm trees that sway beautifully with the ocean trade winds.

What makes this villa unique

La Bougainvillea is situated on 70 acres, with 1,200 feet of beach frontage. The beach here is one of the most spectacular beaches on the island. The breeze coming off the ocean is wonderful and un-comparable to other travel destinations. There are very few places left in the world where you can be on your own private beach and not see any other person.

Great week at La Bougainvillea

  • 5 of 5

My wife and two young children, and myself, just returned from 8 nights at La Bougainvillea. It's a great property on a quiet beach, with a huge backyard. The weather was a bit cooler than average while we were there, so we didn't take advantage of the pool, but it's nice and very close to the house. We had a wonderful concierge, Shorlette Williams, helping us during our entire trip. She had the house stocked with everything we had asked for when we arrived, and she arranged for two wonderful babysitters for our little ones. The only real drawback to the house is that you have to go outside to access each different portion of the house. This wouldn't have been much of an issue at all, but the weather was cool in the mornings especially, so it took a little adjusting. Just a quirky design, not really a negative. We were also able to tour their sister property next door, 7 Palms, it's a beautiful home...a bit more modern than Bougainvillea, and twice as many bedrooms. All in all, a fantastic, centrally located villa that's well taken care of. If you've never been to Eleuthera, this is a great location to check out, as it's easy to head north or south on any given day, and see different parts of the island. Thanks for a great week!

December stay in La Bougainvillea was amazing

  • 5 of 5

My wife and I rented this house with two other couples. We are all in our early thirties. All of us men are super active outdoorsmen, and our wives enjoy exercise, walking, and laying out on the beach. We had been to Eleuthera before, but never have had so much privacy. This place was awesome. Most days we saw a maximum of three other people on the beach during our 45 minute morning walk, but some days we saw none. One afternoon we walked 1 hour up the beach to Tippy's and did not see a single person! (only attempt this walk during low tide!) The house itself had everything we could possibly need. We spent the majority of our time snorkeling the endless coral reef's just off the beach. We were able to spear several lobster and fish. We cooked most of our meals in the kitchen, which had everything we needed, and we grilled out twice as well. The staff was friendly and not overbearing. They got done what needed to be done and then left us alone. It was perfect, as absolute privacy was what we were looking for.

I could go on and on about how amazing this place was, but the most important facts to know are this: 1) This place is VERY private. 2) The beach is awesome for laying out and for all water activities (this is not always the case at other beaches). 3) Activities are endless if you are a go-getter. 4) House is very nice and every room faces the beach, which is way neater than I would have thought. 5) There are enough grocery/restaurant/services near by, but most are not walking distance. This was fine for my group. 6) You can be as well taken care of as you wish by the friendly staff.

Lastly, I will add that getting here was super easy. The flight from Nassau was 20 minutes and that is enough to get away from the crowds. We will definitely be coming back to Eleuthera and La Bougainvillea soon.

Perfect Vaca!

  • 5 of 5

We absolutely loved everything about Eleuthera and the house. It was exactly what we needed. A real relaxing getaway and vacation. The privacy was key but we also loved meeting the locals.

The house, though a little big for just two of us, was perfect as well. We utilized the pool a lot as well as the snorkel gear, paddle board and kayaks that they had on site. Had lots of beach time and some great dinners out, as well as the infamous Friday Night Fish Fry. The property management provided helpful hints, list of activities and information about the island.

We hired Pauline Binks to cook for us for about 5 days/couple meals a day. Absolutely wonderful! Jeremy Lewis took us out for a little fishing, snorkeling and good company!

We are really glad we picked this place rather a hotel. We would definitely like to come back but maybe with a group of friends. Again the privacy was perfect for an anniversary celebration.

Thanks again! We hope to come back soon!

Great House on a Beautiful Island

  • 5 of 5

Queen Wifey and I spent our honeymoon here : ) Two love birds playing in the Bahamas! It's so easy to get to from Brooklyn - left at 7am and were swimming in the ocean by 1pm! The staff is super accommodating - we requested to be alone for a few days with no housecleaners, groundskeepers etc - and we didn't see a soul for 4 days! Yet if we needed something the staff was super attentive, friendly and helpful. We'd wake everyday and meditate, make breakfast, bring our coffee down to the ocean and swim until our skin started to prune : ) The beds are super comfortable which quickly alleviated one of our big fears of traveling ... the dreaded uncomfortable bed. You can see from the pictures that the property and ocean/beach are beyond gorgeous ... Our only gripe is that we had to leave! Highly recommended : )

La Bougainvillea is amazing

  • 5 of 5

My girlfriend and I spent 9 days at La Bougainvillea on Pink Sand Beach in Eleuthera. The villa is absolutely gorgeous (and has plenty of space for 8+ people). It is right on the beach and the entire duration of our stay we saw a total of three people on the beach, all of whom walked right past us and out of sight--it was like having the entire Eleutheran coast to ourselves. The property is 100% secluded but the town of Governor's Harbour is very close by and has anything you might need.

Additionally, Shorlette the house manager was fantastic--she set us up with a rental car and took a trip to the grocery store for us right when we arrived while we rested in the villa after our flight. She gave us as much privacy as we desired but was happy to stop by and check in whenever we needed guidance / dinner reservations. House keeping and the groundskeeper were very respectful of our privacy as well.

Finally, a big thank you to Matt at Eleuthera Vacation Rentals for making this amazing vacation a reality. He made himself constantly available via e-mail / phone leading up to our arrival on Eleuthera and was invaluable in helping us find the right place to spend our vacation.
