Jasmine, Romantic 2BR 2BA Private Estate Stone Villa w/Pink sand beach
Escape to the out island of Eleuthera in a romantic stone villa. Jasmine on Wykee Estates enjoys acres of lush, tropical beauty joined with miles of silken, pink sand beach. Indulge yourself with ocean scented breezes and exotic flowers. Relax on soft lounges while watching the changing greens and blues of the ocean before you. Think cool, stone walls, high ceilings, French doors, large airy rooms and a romantic, king 4 poster with gauzy netting. In the back garden, you can revive yourself, showering under a deep blue sky while enjoying the scarlet bouganvilla climbing up the old Banyan nearby. The completely private shower has hot and cold water with room for two. Relax on the back patios amid lovely tropical trees and flowers. Jasmine is the perfect base for your out island adventures, relaxed and oh so comfortable, Jasmine is home. Explore the 110 miles of Eleuthera with it's caves, ocean holes and unmatched beaches.
Acitivites: Long, wide, pink sand beach with colorful ocean surf, that's what it's all about.
Swim, snorkel, suba, fish (even bone fishing), beach comb, be that lazy
islander inside of you. There is a pool, if you prefer, or for very small children,
Alabaster Bay is nearby with it's shallow water. Governor's Harbour, the
capital of Eleuthera, is only several minutes away. There you will find great
grocery stores, restaurants, shops (even dive shop), banks, post office, library
(free paperback exchange) and even a movie theatre. Stop down to the
center of town in the evening when the fishermen come home to sell the day's
catch. Buy some fish, conch or lobster. Eleuthera is 110 miles long, explore
it's fishing villages, caves, ocean holes and unmatched beaches.

About Gail Sawyer
Jasmine is my absolute favorite place to be! You simply forget the rest of the world while you're there. I really do love working on Jasmine while turning it into my island dream house. Transformation began the day we bought it in 1995.

Why Gail Sawyer chose Governor's Harbor
Eleuthera's people make it a wonderful island. The island is beautiful but so are the people. Eleuthera was perfect for my island dream house and I've been in love with Jasmine and Eleuthera ever since.
What makes this cottage unique
Jasmine is part of a large estate with grounds, pool and access to the Atlantic and Caribbean. There is good snorkeling and fishing on the Caribbean side and the wide pink sand beach on the Atlantic. The estate was built and owned by Sir Roland Symonette (first Bahamian Prime Minister) and his wife, Lady Margaret. They honeymooned, entertained, lived and raised their children on this historic estate.
