About Marian Macy
Gil and Marian Macy purchased this property in 2000. As a retired couple, we spend one half of each year on Eleuthera. The Stone Beach House was our first home. In 2010 we built The Mockingbird on our adjacent property, making this Stone Beach Cottage available for year-round rental. It is a home of charm and character, is well maintained and well equipped... a true island retreat!

Why Marian Macy chose Governor's Harbour
Location. Location. Location. Balara Bay offers hundreds of feet of white sand Caribbean beach. Gently prevailing winds and crystal clear water. The beach is sheltered by Levy Island providing excellent swimming, kayaking, boating, and paddle boarding. We love the proximity to Governor's Harbour the island's largest settlement with restaurants, music, entertainment, grocery stores, banks, gift shops, and churches. A center island location provides convenient travel to North or South Eleuthera. We wanted a Caribbean beach away from pounding seas and winds on Atlantic side. We wanted ON THE BEACH and this property on Balara Bay's gave us white sand beach just off our terrace and the Caribbean Sea 80 feet away.
What makes this house unique
Great location for kayaking, stand-up paddleboarding, swimming. Snorkel on Balara Bay. Additional snorkeling spots within minutes. The home has a large seaside terrace. The beach has a large Tiki Dome which provides shade and comfort. Very private. 1000 feet down a private drive off the Queen's Highway. Surrounded by tropical foliage. There are limited sand beaches on our leeward side of island. Our property is level and easy to walk, to stroll the gardens, to walk down Balara Bay. Excellent sea breeze on Balara Bay and the calm seas provided by Levy Island. We especially enjoy the vaulted Abaco pine ceilings of the front room and guest bedroom, the very private and extra-large master bedroom, and the small sun room for additional comfortable seating. Extensive windows and sliding glass doors allow water views in all rooms.
