About Gary Ashcraft
The Ashcraft family ( Father and three sons)purchased the property in 1995 and built the house and cottage in 1999. Since then we have enjoyed Conch'd Out with family and friends and rent the property to allow others to appreciate the beauty of the location and enjoy the island of Eleuthera.
Gary Ashcraft purchased this House in 1995
Why Gary Ashcraft chose Governor's Harbour, The Bahamas
The Ashcraft family spent many years cruising the Bahamas , fell in love with Eleuthera, and decided to jointly buy and build a home.
What makes this House unique
Conch'd Out is uniquely located in the middle of Eleuthera on a small coral point and slightly elevated. There is access to beaches on each side of the point. A Palapa is located on the tip of the point-allowing spectacular 270 + degree views up and down the coastline.

Relax In Paradise
Conch'd Out was not what we expected, it was even better. The views are breathtaking and the warm tropical breezes are refreshing. We enjoyed sitting on the beach catching some rays and cooling off in the clear waters. Andrew & Rita could not have been better to us. Andrew went out of his way to make us feel wecomed and at home. He even cut some coconuts so we could get the coconut water, jelly, and raw coconut. Al of the restaurants he suggested were right on. Pammys was adelicious lunch several days. All in all a great get away. Eleuthers is truly a "Hidden Gem" in the Caribbean.
Incredible view in two directions, lovely house and very well appointed kitchen. We had a great week.
Lovely house in a fantastic location
We had a lovely week at Conch'd out. The beaches are superb and we enjoyed swimming, snorkelling and kayaking. The property is good for a quiet beach holiday and has everything you need although it is showing some signs of wear and tear. This does not detract from the level of comfort at all. At the time we visited the island was very quiet but there are fabulous beaches to explore. Eleuthera is beautiful and if you are interested in seeing the real Bahamas then don't hesitate to go and visit it yourself, and for 2 to 6 people this is a great place to stay. You will need a car though.
We really loved our stay and will most definitely return to Conch'd Out next year. Bill & Andrea
A slice of carribean paradise
Property was great and exactly as described. Beach was beautiful and very private (only saw one other family a couple of times). Andrew was there for us when we needed him... would definitely return again (but with better bug screen for the no-see-ums!).
Great house in a great location!
Conch’d Out is easily accessible- just one hour by air from Miami, Fort Lauderdale, and Nassau to Governor's Harbour (GHB) airport or North Eleuthera airport (ELH) . Our comfortable and well-maintained home is right on one of the most beautiful and secluded beaches in the world. This location makes a perfect playground for children of any age. You can enjoy exploring the fascinating coral reefs just offshore, catch a fish or spear a lobster for your dinner, enjoy world-class bone fishing, or charter a boat for deep-sea fishing. Two 2-person and one child kayaks are provided for your enjoyment.
The people of Eleuthera are extremely friendly and hospitable. The island has many interesting places to visit and deserted beaches to explore. Conch'd Out, in North Palmetto Point, is located mid-island, cutting down on the time and expense of gas when sightseeing. And our attentive local caretakers, Andrew and Reta Bethel, will make sure that your Bahamas holiday is a memorable one.
