Long Description: Top
The island of Eleuthera is the most beautiful of all the islands in the Bahamas. One hundred miles long and scarcely a mile wide in most places, the sun can be seen rising over the Atlantic and setting over the Caribbean. This is a quiet island, where you will often be the only people on the beach for as far as you can see. Prince Charles and Diana chose Eleuthera for privacy and seclusion on their honeymoon. Direct flights arrive Governor's Harbour daily from Miami, Ft. Lauderdale, and Nassau. The rentals are 8 miles from the airport

Piccola sleeps 7 and the guesthouse Piccolino sleeps 8. Both are fully furnished with linens, towels, and kitchen facilities. They are located in the center of the island and are within walking distance to the beaches, gift shops, restaurants, grocery stores, etc. Rentals are situated in a quiet area of the town of Governor's Harbour. Many guests have said "absolutely one of the best rentals in the Bahamas".

In the old European tradition, homes in the Bahamas are given names instead of addresses. Piccola is a house that was built over 200 years ago on the hill above Governor's Harbour settlement. Upstairs there are 2 bedrooms and a bathroom, and downstairs is a third bedroom, living room, kitchen, dining room, and large full bathroom. The house has been completely modernized.

Piccolino has a fully outfitted kitchen, living room, 2 full baths, and 2 bedrooms on the ground floor. Above the back rooms is a loft space accessible from a winding staircase. The master has a king size bed, 2 twins are in the second bedroom, and 4 twins are in the loft. There is a large stone patio with barbecue.

Houses are completely furnished and supplied with ample linen, beach towels, dishes, and cookware. Kitchens contain toaster, blender, mixer, etc. The furniture is primarily rattan, and the houses and grounds are well maintained. A verandah in front of Piccola looks over the garden, while a patio in back has deck furniture and a barbecue grill.

Above are only a few of the places one should visit. . . there are many, many more places of interest to keep you busy your entire holiday.

Eleuthera is more than 100 miles in length, with numerous secluded beaches, many where not even a footprint may be found. All beaches in the Bahamas are public. Several beaches have beautiful pink sand. Shelling on Eleuthera is excellent; snorkeling, scuba diving and fishing are superior.

The water is extremely clear with visibility up to 50 feet, so it makes great snorkeling and scuba diving. Offshore away from the beaches there are coral reefs which are fun to explore. Many of those reefs are in ‘snorkel depth’ for those people not certified for diving.

There are a few caves on the Island. There are stalagmites and stalactites as you’d expect, and yes – bats in some places. It is fun to explore a little, so take a flashlight

Testimonials: Top
Dear Chuck,
A note to say we love Eleuthera. It truly is paradise. Piccola is a wonderful house, with everything needed for a comfortable stay.
The boys loved Arlene's conch fritters. We made a lot of friends; the people are the kindest we have ever met.
Thank you for sharing your paradise with us.
My best, Melanie K,

Dear Mr. Norris,
We had a wonderful time in Eleuthera at Piccolino. We really loved the house (lots of room in the kitchen and a beautiful patio area).
Apparently we missed all the cold weather here in Montreal while we were away. The last 3 days it’s been 60 degrees here!
Thank you once again. We hope to visit in the near future.
Karin, Richard, and friends

Dear Chuck,
Our vacation on Eleuthera was delightful. The weather was warm and the beaches beautiful. We found the people to be exceptionally pleasant. Piccolino was very comfortable, well equipped and convenient to the grocery store and bakeries.
I am enclosing the check for $105 for an extra visitor. Many thanks for your interest and helpful suggestions.
Sincerely, Emilie K.

Dear Chuck and Jane,
Well, Eleuthera was all you said it would be and more. All 10 of us agree that it was one of the BEST vacations ever!
We had a wonderful time and can't wait until we can return. The 2 houses worked out well for our group. The kids loved the loft.
We found some of those out-of-the-way spots everyone talks about. Our favorites were Ten Bay beach, the snorkeling beach at Windermere, and Harbour Island.
The sun, sand, water, snorkeling - FANTASTIC! The roads are also something else.
We took your advice and carried some of our own food supply. That worked out well. We had some great beach picnics and tailgate parties.
Let me tell you it was hard for us to leave on that last day. We used the last possible minutes that we had.
Thanks again for helping to provide a wonderful place for us to stay. We will always consider GH Eleuthera our one particular harbor!
Debbie L.

Dear Mr. Norris,
We thoroughly enjoyed our vacation in 'Piccolino' during the month of January. We found it well equipped and very comfortable, and needless to say, we regretted having to leave it and the many Bahamian friends we made while there. Our disappointment was compounded even more when we arrived home to fresh fallen snow - with an added 5 inches yesterday!
I'm enclosing my check for $400 for the extra cost of visitors above the basic four people the rental covered.
We hope to visit Eleuthera again. When that time comes we'll also be hoping the 'Piccolino' will be available for another visit from the Smiths.
Sincerely, James G. Smith
