Newly Renovated Private Beach Villa with Pool and Ocean Views

Located in: Governor's Harbour
This beautifully renovated and modernized Bahamian home retains its original grounds and garden, while enjoying modern comforts and conveniences. Driftwood sits on a hill with views of the ocean from every room. A 5-minute walk down the hill takes you to the world renowned French Leave beach (formerly Club Med), while a 10 minute walk in the other direction takes you to the restaurants and shops in the village of Governor’s Harbour. No need for a rental car!

To enter the villa from the front, you pass the 10’x30’ private pool, up the stairs, and onto an expansive porch that overlooks the landscaped grounds and ocean beyond. At the front door you enter the open plan dining hall, with large windows in front and back to welcome the cooling trade winds and sounds of the ocean. The interior is light and bright, with white walls, tiled floors and wood ceilings. To the right is the open plan family room and fully equipped modern kitchen with granite countertops, gas cooktop, and stainless steel appliances.

To the left of the dining hall are two large bedrooms. The first is a large guest/children’s bedroom with twin beds (that convert to a king), a closet, and its own bath right across the hall. The second is the downstairs master bedroom suite with ensuite bath (bathtub and shower), two closets and a king bed. Both bedrooms access a private patio for enjoying the sights and sounds of nature in the morning sunlight.

The upstairs master bedroom suite is accessed from the stairway in the hall. It has a large balcony overlooking the grounds and ocean beyond, a large bath with double sinks, and a large walk-in closet and king bed. There’s plenty of room to relax and enjoy a good book or afternoon nap.

In addition to the 3 large bedrooms in the main part of the house, Driftwood has a separate, open plan studio with bedroom, bathroom, sitting room, closet and complete kitchen. The main entrance is from another private patio at the north end of the house; the second is a level entrance into the kitchen from the back garden. In addition, the studio bath has a low threshold shower for handicapped access. The main part of the house and the one bedroom studio are joined at the shared laundry room, equipped with large washer and dryer. The studio can be locked off from the rest of the house.

The back patio and garden area are accessed from the dining hall or the studio kitchen. It is private, protected from strong winds and enjoys afternoon sunlight, perfect for outdoor grilling. After a day on the beach, enjoy a dip in the pool and drinks on the front porch. Driftwood is beautifully landscaped with tropical flowers, palm trees, and fruit and nut trees.

Driftwood is just a short walk from town and nearby dining including the Buccaneer Club and Da Perk. Other nearby restaurants include Tippys (a 4 minute drive) and the Sunset Inn (a 5 minute drive). The historic town of Governors Harbour has grocery stores, banks with ATMs, gift shops, liquor stores, dive shop, bakery, and restaurants. Buy fresh fish and lobster every afternoon from the fishermen on the village dock. And don’t miss Friday night fish fry, a weekly beach/street party that brings together tourists and locals for food, drink, and dancing in the street.

Driftwood is fully equipped to make your stay as comfortable as possible. Amenities include air conditioning in all rooms, WIFI, mobile phone, cable TV, Video and DVD player, outdoor gas grill, beach & pool toys, beach towels, cooler, and more.
