This lovingly restored 19th century cottage features natural oak floors and high ceilings. It is furnished with a literal treasure trove of unique pieces from around the world.

The space

You enter Stone House into the spacious living room. There is a large loft bedroom above it, accessed by a short flight of steps. The loft has twin beds, a sitting area, and a dramatic cathedral ceiling. Pass through the living room to the dining room and fully equipped kitchen featuring state-of-the-art stainless steel appliances. There is also a full bath on this level with walk-in shower.

The master bedroom is accessed down a flight of stairs. It has a king bed and beautifully appointed en suite bathroom with shower and tub.

Outside, enjoy Stone House’s two large and lovely shaded porches, which have both dining and sitting areas. Stone House shares a pool with two other houses.You will be surrounded by a lush garden which is home to many fruit trees, bougainvillea, hibiscus, aloe and coconut palms.

Amenities at Stone House include flat-screen cable TV, air conditioning, ceiling fan, wireless internet, hi-fi stereo, cordless telephone, and off-street parking.

Stone House is part of the Squires Estate collection of beautifully restored 19th century homes on the hill above Governors Harbour. The homes and cottages of Squires Estate were restored and furnished with antiques by a reknowned Italian architect. The décor and level of finish will delight the most discriminating world traveler. Our manager will greet you upon arrival and be available to assist you as needed. She can arrange for daily housekeeping, a private chef, or a car rental (extra charges apply), and provide advice about island activities. Other staff at Squires Estate include a fulltime gardener and housekeepers. Laundry and ironing services are provided on the premises. Stone House can be combined with other historic homes and cottages in the Squires Estate collection for larger groups.

The town of Governors Harbour, a one-minute walk down the hill, has a charming collection of 19th century homes and churches overlooking its historic harbor. Buy fresh fish and lobster every afternoon from fisherman at the town dock, or visit the recently restored Haynes Library, which dates from 1897, for the weekly coffee hour for foreign residents and tourists. Governors Harbour has grocery stores, restaurants, liquor stores, two banks with ATMs, a bakery, gift shops, a dive shop, and a medical clinic. Friday Night Fish Fry in Governors Harbour, a street/beach party that brings together all the tourists and locals with food, drink, and dancing in the street, is not to be missed.

Walking over the hill in the other direction takes you to French Leave Beach, the finest beach on the island and one of the great beaches of the Caribbean. By foot, it’s about 10 minutes to French Leave, a mile-long crescent of pink sand which is literally deserted most of the time. Most visitors to Eleuthera rent a car, because the island is rural and spread out, and a car is the only practical way to get around. By car, Stone House is just a minute from French Leave Beach.

Eleuthera is famous for its 100 miles of spectacular, deserted beaches. The island, home to just 8000 residents, is completely safe any time of the day or night. Enjoy the rare experience of picking up hitch-hikers and leaving your keys in the car wherever you go. The snorkeling, diving, and fishing on the island are world class. Boating, surfing, and other water sports are also popular. You can rent power boats, sailboats, sea kayaks, bikes. You can have a charter captain take you out for excursions of various types. There is excellent sightseeing as well. Eleuthera has vast caves, cliffs, a bottomless ocean hole, many unique beaches, historic churches and 19th century homes, and small villages to explore. We hope you will enjoy Stone House, and experience all our island has to offer.

We thoroughly enjoyed our stay at the cottage and plan to return in the near future. Annie definitely made the difference in our stay. Her thoughtfulness and attention to detail made our stay very special.

We had a wonderful stay in Eleuthra and this house is one of the reasons why we would go back. The house is beautiful, clean, quiet and located within walking distance to restaurants and stores. The house also has parking and a pool! The house manager, Annie, was so accomodating! She was available to meet us when we arrived, walked me thru the house and told me about the town, helped when I needed clean linens and followed-up before we left. Thank you Matt, Tara & Annie for making our stay wonderful!

We really enjoyed the location and the house. Everything looked new or renovated and it was very comfortably decorated. I truly enjoyed just lounging on the front porch. Restaurants and grocery were within walking distance, as was both the Atlantic and the Caribbean. Lovely stay on an equally lovely island!

We had a wonderful stay in The Stone House. We were made to feel very welcome and provided with some delightful local provisions to get our stay started. The house is beautifully decorated, very authentic and very comfortable. The gardens are a delight and made for some long relaxing breakfasts. Governors Harbour is full of interesting sights and the bay is stunning. The house is also close to the Atlantic side of the island and some of the best beaches in the world. There are a number of restaurants in the area that have excellent chefs and we explored them fully.

You will love Eleuthera, this amazing unspoiled and undiscovered island. I
love the beaches, which are spectacular and deserted, the slow pace, the
friendly people, and the complete absence of crowds. We are a rental agency that handles Eleuthera exclusively. I will send you complete information about activities, restaurants, getting around the island, etc. Every house we represent has a local owner, property manager, caretaker who will meet you upon arrival and get you settled in.
