About Kim and Jason Menefee and Matthew Simon

My family have been involved on Eleuthera since the late 1930's. I love this island and it's friendly people!

Why Kim and Jason Menefee and Matthew Simon chose Governor's Harbour, The Bahamas

If you are looking for a chance to relax, away from the madding crowd...listen to the waves, walk along a virtually deserted pink sand beach, going on for miles...dine under a canopy of stars...then this is what you will find at 'Pebbles'!

What makes this cottage unique

Excellently well decorated and fully equipped! Right on the beach...with stunning views! Everyday is slightly different, depending on the ocean!

Notes:
The telephone is for incoming and local calls only, wifi us also available. Pebbles is a lovely, well appointed beach cottage with some of the most amazing views up the coast. The beach is directly outside with miles of cool pink sand and few people in sight. The Main House faces away, and allows Pebbles to have privacy and no interference in any way. It is completely independent in every way, it has it's own access to the beach. Dining under billions of stars clearly visible in the night sky as there is no light pollution to cloud the view! Very romantic nights! Maid service is included once mid week during a weeklong stay. (Not included for shorter stays.)

Reviewer Comments:

The extremely well situated property with breathtaking views was exactly as I older home perfect for those wanting a simple and relaxing time to enjoy the mostly deserted beach and incredible views.We loved it. Some hints: - The owner let us know that we could use the very short path to the beach connected to the house next door as our short path was a bit shaky for us. -The dryer is in the house next door. -The Venus Pool never materialized as shown in the photos. With official low tide times (obtained from the Haynes Library) I continued to check. The tide was never as low it must be for the pool to look like the photos.There is certainly nothing you can do about the pull of the moon! -Bring beach shoes so you can climb on the rocks and enjoy another view.-We like to cook our own food. The Island Farm had the best broccoli, papayas, fresh herbs, wine and liquor, etc ever. That along with fish from the dock in Governor's Harbor (look for the umbrella to go up around 3:30) and the nicely stocked kitchen at Pebbles completed our wonderful stay.

Reviewer Comments:

Pebbles is situated in a perfect location. The beach right out back is gorgeous. The proximity to Governor's Harbour is also highly desirable. Tippy's is right down the road and is always great. The Buccaneer Club is close as well and offers a great place to grab breakfast. 1648 is another fantastic place, especially to catch a meal on the balcony overlooking the sunset. The home itself needs a lot of maintenance and was not in good condition for our trip. Eleuthera Vacation Rentals were very responsive and accommodating, though. They did everything they could to help address the issues with the house. They even offered us alternative housing options while we were there, but we decided the location of the property was too perfect to relocate. Overall, pick Pebbles for the location. We hope they make some much needed renovations. If that happens, it would be easy to recommend the rental to others.

Reviewer Comments:

While the interior of Pebbles is need of a facelift, the cottage does afford everything you might require for a week's stay. The shabbiness of the decor is more than made up for however by the magnificence of the sea views and the spectacular beach. Most mornings, until about 1PM, we were the only people on this incredible stretch of pink sand and aqua water, and we took utmost advantage of it. We would return as a result.

Reviewer Comments:

We're a couple who travels quite a bit to remote places and we're return visitors to Eleuthera, which is a favorite destination for the beaches and snorkeling, the friendly people, and great restaurants. Pebbles is in a fantastic location to enjoy the water and the beach, but travelers should know that the house is in a state of disrepair. The master bathroom was partly under construction (shower unusable), the mattress was creaky and worn out, a molding fell from a doorway when we shut the bathroom door, the water smells sulfurous (cistern)and no other potable water is on site when you arrive. We had a bout of bad weather, which drove us indoors more than usual. If we'd had better weather we may not have noticed that there is no base to play music from an iPod,fans and fixtures are rusty, paint is peeling, especially in the bedroom, cupboards are not clean etc. Great location, but much more rustic than it appears in the photos.

What a lovely setting on the Atlantic side of Eleuthera! The beach is spectacular with clear warm water, which changes in character from high to low tide. It's a great walk down to Tippy's and back for exercise. There were very few other people using the beach in November, when we were there. The property was very private because there was no one in the main house, but we don't think it would be intrusive if there were guests there.

Location

Eleuthera is one of the larger islands of the Bahamas. It has some of the most beautiful secluded beaches to be found anywhere in the world. There are more places for quiet picnics, snorkeling, beachcombing and dining by the ocean in one of the excellent restaurants.

Pebbles is on an 11 acres private estate called On the Rocks, which is located between Governor's Harbour and North Palmetto Point on the Atlantic side of the island. The best beaches are on the Atlantic side and the cooler summer breezes too!

No high rise buildings, large hotels or casinos! No crowds or traffic jams!
