Why Owner chose Governor's Harbour, The Bahamas
Eleuthera is one of the most beautiful and friendly of all the Bahamas 'family' islands. Easily accessible from the U.S. and especially accessible from Nassau. Endless miles of beautiful secluded pink sand beaches from one end of Eleuthera to the other. Goods and services are readily available. A wide variety of restaurants and bars are within easy reach. Great activities are happening on a regular basis in and around Governor's Harbour and throughout Eleuthera...

What an incredible stay with incredible people. Galen and Kathy went out fo their way to make sure every part of my stay was perfect. Their knowledge of local activities and beaches really helped me not waste time during a short stay. I would say their accommodations are about the nicest I have ever seen in this price range
Gracious hospitality and great location
Galen and Kathy are some of the nicest possible hosts, the house and pool are terrific, and the central location is very convenient. Easy access to town and reasonable drives either north or south with excellent restaurants and beaches galore. 10 days was a perfect stay!
Very enjoyable stay
Galen and Kathy’s home was perfect for our stay. Very clean, comfortable, and well appointed. Location is central, so reaching beaches and other points of interest was easy. Galen and Kathy were very helpful and all of their recommendations were excellent. While they do reside on the property, they were totally unobtrusive unless we needed them. Galen even assisted in changing a flat tire on our rental car. While the closest beach is within walking distance, we were duly warned by Galen upon arriving that a restaurant had been opened there by a rather unsavory character. We did visit the beach and while it was nice we were verbally accosted by the guy and did not feel comfortable being there. Since there are so many beaches within easy driving distance this was not a big issue for us. If you visit you will want a vehicle as well, so can easily avoid the problematic individual. All in all a very relaxing vacation on a beautiful low key island.
A Touch of Heaven, Indeed!
This place could not have been more aptly named; my stay here was amazing and it transformed what have been a good vacation into one that was simply exceptional.
As a woman traveling alone, I was nervous about renting a home as opposed to going to a resort, but Toque Do Ceu was such a good value when I compared other resort options on the island.
I made the best choice. Galen and Kathy were right next door and eager to make sure that I was always enjoying myself. (And they have two adorable Rhodesian Ridgebacks, really good boys, who enhanced my sense of safety.)
I loved that this rental was clothing optional as well. Although I hadn't intended on running around naked so much, it was so enjoyable! There is nothing like stripping off your swimming suit after a long day at the beach, washing the sand off under the sun in the outdoor shower, and then taking a dip in the refreshing pool. (After awhile, running around without clothes is like watching movies with subtitles. You become immersed in the experience and forget that you don't have a stitch of clothes on.)
The home itself is exceptional. Upscale appliances, comfortable and quality furniture, high-speed internet, reverse osmosis water, and a big, cozy bed that finally made the aching in my back disappear. (Next on the agenda at home: Buy a new mattress.) if nothing else gives you a sense of quality, the artwork consists of signed and numbered prints (in addition to Kathy's own designs), including some antique etchings of San Francisco.
The location is optimal, as well. The views are spectacular and it's an easy walk to Navy Beach. And one of the best, if not the best, beach on the Caribbean side is a five-minute drive away (if that).
I would highly recommend this vacation rental.
Thank you so much for the lovely review! Look forward to having you back again!
We have been visiting Eleuthera for many years and stayed at wonderful locations. However This is our favourite by far. Our hosts did not miss a thing. They ensured our rental car was at the airport and provided us with all the information we needed to make it a memorable stay. We had the freedom and privacy we needed to really relax. We enjoyed the beautiful view from our private deck. BBQ’ed and made several dinners in the well equipped kitchen. Everything was top notch from the large bathroom to the comfortable bed, with hi speed internet, backup power, and drinkable water available, this location leaves you wanting for nothing. The location is close to several great beaches as well as Governors Harbour shops and restaurants. The pool was warm and inviting, the atmosphere relaxing just a perfect spot. Also the night sky had more stars the you could imagine possible. I cannot say enough about the location and our hosts. Their cottage and attention to detail made this truly one of the most memorable trips we’ve had. There is little wonder why they named it “Touch of Heaven”. We are already planning our return trip. The only negative is, it was very hard for us to leave such a great place. We would just like to say thank you so much for making this such a memorable vacation and for your hospitality. See you again soon.
We totally enjoyed our stay at this property and it was more amazing than we could have asked for. The owners made us feel welcome and were always available to help with any inquiries and suggestions on the property but also the beautiful island we were fortunate to visit. The outdoor shower was fantastic and a dip in the heated pool was always welcome after a day of exploring. The house is completely equipped for everything needed if you are self catering including a outdoor grill to go along with the terrific view of the ocean. The property is near the Govenors Harbour airport which makes it a easy commute and it’s location in the middle of the island makes exploring to both the north and south ends effortless. Thank you Galen and Kathy for allowing us to stay at your Touch of Heaven.
