Why Kirk and Marion Love chose Governor's Harbour, The Bahamas

When we first visited the Island many years ago we fell in love with it and the beautiful people. We decided it would be a wonderful place to have a vacation home.

What makes this villa unique

It is very quiet and peaceful, definitely a place for rest and relaxation. It took us a couple of years to find the perfect location and home and we could not be happier with our choice. The sunrises are spectacular and the views are breathtaking.

Beautiful Bahama Island Getaway

  • 5 of 5

Definitely one of my favorite vacations ever! Loved staying in this house with my brother's family and my family to celebrate our daughters graduations from high school. The house is up to date with all the modern conveniences, and if you like to cook, kitchen has all the tools needed to produce a great meal. We also enjoyed grilling overlooking the beautiful beach/water. We spent a good amount of time snorkeling the reefs right in the back yard which we found to be the best of all the places we explored (this included Harbor Island and Lighthouse beach). We saw amazing colorful fish, coral, spiny lobsters, barracuda, snapper, and other unknown fish during the week of our stay. I truly appreciated the privacy we had in this house and we felt like we had our own private beach. All our teenagers report they want to buy this house when they get older to give an idea of how they enjoyed staying at Barefoot Beach Villa.

Some of the things that were difficult was obtaining food especially with 4 teenagers in the house. They eat ALOT and food was expensive and not the same availability as what we are used to in the states- this required some planning. By the end of the week we did find some great restaurants that we all loved, and located grocery items we needed. This was our first visit to the Bahamas/Eleuthera/Barefoot Beach Villa. I hope we can return again sometime soon!

Also, the caretaker Howard and the owners were very responsive to questions, requests etc. We really appreciated their support with all our questions and needs!

Beautiful Home With Amazing Views

  • 5 of 5

We could not have been happier with our decision to rent this home! Kirk and Marion Love were both the most polite and responsive owners! Their caretaker of the home Howard was the same and was a great help, he offered his assistance in any way possible. Upon arriving on Saturday, the home was cleaned and ready for our stay. It was stocked with plates, cups, silverware, pots/pans, a grill, pool floats, puzzles/games, towels, and fishing poles, sea kayaks, snorkeling gear in various sizes..... the list goes on! It was also in a nice central location for us to explore the island and only minutes from most to of grocery stores, and restaurants. The view is to die for and we enjoyed floating, kayaking, and snorkeling in the warm water right behind the house! The pool was refreshing and perfectly clean. We are extremely glad we chose this home and did not try to save a few bucks by renting something less desirable. One thing for future renters to know is bring plenty of bug spray and put it on often. The no-see-ums (sand flys) are bad, usually ‪from 5AM to 7AM‬ and ‪5PM to 7PM‬. The home has loads of privacy and stunning scenery. We highly recommend it!

Thank you Kirk and Marion for everything and sharing your beautiful home!!! We have so many wonderful memories from the week we stayed and we will definitely be returning!

Barefoot Beach Villa was one of the best vacations our family has ever taken. The house is wonderful and sits right on the beach. After walking down the beach it is obvious that this property has one of the best spots on the beach. The pool is wonderful. We could hang out in the pool and watch others in our family snorkeling in the ocean. The house is fully stocked with all of the amenities you need, including a washer and dryer so you don't have to pack a week's worth of clothes. This house had more kitchen items and towels than we have in our home! The house has a generator which would kick in when the electricity goes off, which happens at least once a day. Kirk, the owner, called to check on us when we arrived to ensure that all was going well. We can not say enough good things about Howard (the caretaker) and his family. We rented a car from Howard and his daughter, Anthia, picked us up at the airport. She was kind enough to take us to a local grocery store so we had some snacks and drinks for the evening as we arrived after 5 pm. She then took us to the house so that we wouldn't get lost. Howard checked on us several times during the stay. They were so helpful and friendly, as were all of the locals. We ate out at a couple of the local restaurants, but mainly cooked at the house because there was no reason to leave. We tried out several different stores to obtain our food and drinks. No Wal-Marts, Costcos, McDonalds or Subways here! Eleuthera is not westernized at all which was wonderful. We did venture up north to the glass bridge which is a must see if you are in Eleuthera. Amazing! If you are looking for a relaxing, carefree, no stress vacation this is it. Our children, ages 13-15, said they would be happy to come to Barefoot Beach Villa every year for vacation. We will definitely be coming back and would love to be able to stay at Barefoot Beach Villa again. Thanks Kirk and Marion!

By far our families best Caribbean adventure yet!

  • 5 of 5

Our family of 2 boys and my mother (5 total) couldn’t have been any happier with our Eleuthera experience. The house was perfect....had everything we needed. The pool is a must as is the screened in lanai given the night time bugs. Also great having the full size washer and dryer and the outdoor shower that made you feel like you were in the jungle. The beach set up is paradise with crystal clear indescribable water and sand. You truly felt like rock star being on your own deserted beach! For dinners we enjoyed 1648, Tippys and Buccaneer Club the best....we took one day trip south with Captain Bubba on Fishbone Adventure tours. 4 hours of fishing, snorkeling and sightseeing was amazing. My son caught a 15lb barracuda! Otherwise we only went to see Glass Window Bridge on the north part of the island which splits the Atlantic and Caribbean Sea and was spectacular! We had a few other day trips in mind but honestly when you see how perfect the house-pool and beach set up is there is no reason to leave. A car is a must as is a true sense of adventure given the beautiful rugged undeveloped nature of the island. Can’t say enough about the house owner Kirk who was always available to answer questions and the house caretaker Howard. If you want a one of a kind island experience without crowds and traffic than Eleuthera and Barefoot beach villa is your spot! Can’t wait to go back......Jason from Pennsylvania

A beautiful place

  • 5 of 5

Our seven family members--four adults and three kids--enjoyed Barefoot Beach Villa very much. The comfortable house sits up on a cliff; the gorgeous beach is reached by wooden steps out back. Highlights: beach walks, snorkeling, games in the pool, sampling local food (conch salad from Sterling in Governor's Harbour and coconut tarts home-made by "Sister" at the nearby Paradise store), wading the flats at Savannah Sound to get an up-close view of rays, turtles, and small (and thankfully harmless!) lemon sharks, stargazing, and catching up on reading--when we could tear our gaze away from the water's million shades of turquoise. The only drawbacks were minor: gnats at night (but they retired in time for stargazing) and a dishwasher that never worked (but the very capable caretaker, Howard, has ordered a new one). Overall, a great vacation!

Absolute Paradise !

  • 5 of 5

We've been to many islands in the Bahamas however Eleuthera became our favorite years ago! We've stayed in every type of house and I have to say this was the best! Everything you could possibly want or need for adults and children. We rented 2 vehicles from Howard even though the majority of the time we just wanted to stay at the house! Howard is one of the sweetest men I've ever met, I loved our morning chats while he watered plants and I drank coffee. Kirk was very kind calling when we arrived to make sure everything was ok! Can't wait to go back, my husband is already trying to plan the trip lol!
