Colonial Bahamian Beach House

Located in the historic village of Governor’s Harbour, Buccaneer Hill is a colonial Bahamian beach house that sits high on a hilltop overlooking Cupid’s Cay. With stunning views, ample shade and large garden, the property captures the essence of outdoor Caribbean living.

First built in the 1800’s the historic house was completely restored in 2009 with central air conditoning and ceiling fans in all rooms. The main house sleeps 10 guests in five bedrooms along with a separate one bedroom cottage that can be rented together with the house or on its own. The first floor bedrooms have en-suite bathrooms and all open onto a balcony.

The house sits on nearly two acres of gardens with mature fruit and poinciana trees creating wonderful places to relax and enjoy the views. Dine inside, under porch cover or BBQ outside by the pool. At dusk enjoy the varying sunsets across the Eleuthera Sound, and watch the brightest of stars begin to emerge.

Within walking distance of the soft pink sand beaches of Eleuthera, Buccaneer Hill is the perfect location for a wonderful family vacation, a special reunion or a small secluded wedding.

Main House
On the ground floor is a large living and dining area spanning the length and width of the house. Outside a large verandah faces the south west to the sea, and offers two additional sitting areas and covered dining. A modern fully equipped kitchen is located just off the main living dining area.

Guest Book
“Beautiful historical house in a stunning location providing enough for adults and kids alike. A truly special and very memorable stay.”

“Magical spot. My favourite afternoon this year was spent reading under the Poinciana Tree with panoramic views across Cupids Cay and the trade winds blowing gently across the manicured lawns. Can’t wait to go back.”

“Buccaneer Hill is just a fabulous vacation home. It is beautifully appointed, with attention to every detail. Exploring the stunning beaches & laid back charm of Eleuthera, then returning home to the casual elegance & amazing views from your home made for the truly perfect vacation. Thank you for sharing this idyllic slice of paradise. Governor’s Harbour and especially your home, is now one of our favorite places on earth to rejuvenate.”

“Our family thoroughly enjoyed our stay at Buccaneer Hill. The house has a tremendous charm, is decorated beautifully, and the views are spectacular. We took full advantage of the large property, the pool, and the spacious living area. The location of the home is ideal- walking distance to the village, with plenty of excellent restaurants nearby. We really enjoyed the quality family time spent at Buccaneer Hill - perfect getaway!!!”

“We really enjoyed our family holiday in your beautiful house overlooking Governor’s Harbour. The kids loved exploring different beaches every day and then being able to come back and play in the pool and run around the expansive property, while the adults sipped cocktails on the veranda watching the sun set over the ocean. You have certainly managed to capture the best of both for anyone who wants a true Family Island holiday in the Bahamas, luxurious accommodation combined with access to beautiful deserted beaches and the delightful settlement of Governor’s Harbour. We will be coming back to Buccaneer Hill!”
