Situated centrally on the 110 mile island, the capital settlement of historic Governor's Harbour is only 5 miles away from the house and the surrounding area boasts fine dining, a small library, a plant preserve park, an organic farm with fresh fruits, green herbs and vegetables, a high pitched Methodist Church, a pizzeria basically across the street and the opportunity to even see school children brightly uniformed going to or returning from school. Small mom and pop grocery stores are nearby and the property is approximately a 20 minute drive from the closest Airport, Governor's Harbour.
Between Palmetto Point and Governor's Harbour, you can enjoy paddleboarding and kayaking on the beautiful Edwin's Turtle Lake. In Governor's Harbor, visit the more than 100 year old Hayne's Library, the old Episcopal church, and the famous Friday night Fish Fry where locals and tourists gather for entertainment and good food. On picturesque Cupid's Cay in Governor's Harbour, you may also wish to watch the weekly mail boats arrive from Nassau or Florida with weekly supplies and food for the island. Additionally, the historic homes overlooking the harbour are a refreshing throw back to the ole' days.

Stayed here for 2 weeks. Central location allowed us to visit different gorgeous beaches, to eat in excellent restaurants in Governor's Harbor and the quiet allowed us to relax.
