Description Description
Welcome to Alfred House, a spacious, luxurious, and secluded beachfront estate with an oceanfront heated private pool on the north end of world-famous French Leave Beach (formerly Club Med Beach). This mile-long beach of pink sand where a Club Med once stood is the most sought-after beach location on Eleuthera. The ocean is turquoise, shallow, and historically safe, having served Club Med well for many years. Children love this shallow beach. Enjoy thousands of feet of deserted beachfront, extensive ocean views from every major room, and the sound of the ocean from everywhere. There is excellent snorkeling right off our property.

Enjoy our new ocean-view pool! The pool can be heated for your comfort for a charge of $500 per week.

Alfred House is located just a mile from the main town, Governors Harbours, which has some excellent restaurants as well as grocery stores, gift shops, liquor stores, a bakery, and a fish fry street party every Friday night that is not to be missed. Walk to town past the lovely restored captain’s homes dating from the 1800s.

Alfred House is a 4000-square-foot, 5-bedroom island style home. The house was designed and decorated to reflect the laid back feeling of the cabanas at the Bitter End Yacht Club, Virgin Gorda. Both the upstairs and downstairs of Alfred House have a wall of glass-paned mahogany French doors, so as you move through the house, you see the sea at every turn. The house is furnished with comfortable deep sofas, custom pieces made of teak, mango, & cherry woods, and large black and white photographs of movie icons. There are Honduran hardwood floors, cypress cedar ceilings, and marble and slate tile washrooms.

Downstairs, Alfred House features a vast great room that looks out through a wall of glass patio doors at the beach and ocean. The open-plan kitchen faces the ocean, and features custom wood white shelving with shell encrusted stone counter tops. Appliances are stainless steel. The kitchen island is capped with a ten-foot teak counter with matching teak bar stools.

There is a king bedroom master suite downstairs with an ocean view and a en-suite full bath. Also downstairs is a second full bath with walk-in shower.

The upstairs of Alfred House has four more bedrooms. The two huge upstairs master suites have king beds; spectacular ocean views, big decks, and full en suite baths. The two smaller bedrooms have two twin beds in each. Four of the five bedrooms at Alfred House have ocean views. One twin room has a pond view.

The upstairs of Alfred House also features a huge media room, another gathering spot, which faces the ocean and shows turquoise water through several French doors.

The upstairs sun deck, with its grand row of Honduran mahogany shutters, runs the length of the house (60 ft), with miles of beach and ocean views.

Outside on the first level is a lovely covered patio adjacent to the pool, a shady spot for enjoying the sea breeze and the sound of the ocean. The floor of the terrace contains a lovely mosaic of a conch made by a local island artist. The patio has seating for dining or lounging.

Amenities include full AC, large flat-screen TV in the media room, NEW SUPER-FAST STARLINK INTERNET, satellite TV with 100 channels including HBO, CNN, FOX, and BBC, and a washer/dryer. A mid-stay housekeeping is included in a 1-week stay.

Alfred House has just one neighbor, a one-bedroom cottage. Otherwise, the nearest house is 100s of yards down the beach.

Alfred House is surrounded by over 20 acres of secluded wild nature, full of casuarina trees, palms, giant cacti, sea grape and lettuce, even though we are only a mile or so from town.

NOTE: During the peak spring and holiday seasons, rates are for up to 10 guests. During the rest of the year, the off-peak rates are for the first 8 guests, with a charge for additional guests.
