Overview & Photos

Gallery

The beautiful 4-acre property, recently remodeled, consists of a 3-bedroom main house with a detached guest cottage, both built around an extra-large 33-foot private pool. Miss Ruby is located on the prestigious Banks Road, the prime address in Governors Harbour, just 5 minutes by car from town and less than a 15 minute walk down the beach from famous Tippy’s restaurant and bar.

Miss Ruby is a 3 to 5 minute walk (depending on your pace) from a miles-long pink-sand beach, usually deserted. This beach has a unique, totally-protected pool, perfect for small children, as well as a long stretch of postcard-perfect ocean beach. Miss Ruby features beautiful ocean views from the upper floor rooms and decks. Miss Ruby is surrounded by a lush garden planted with flowering bougainvillea and hibiscus, as well as coconut palms and other fruit trees.

Miss Ruby’s two-story main house has 3 bedrooms and 3 baths. It features high ceilings, hardwood floors, and lots of sunlight. The first floor has large great room with living and dining areas, and a modern, fully equipped island kitchen with butcher block countertops and stainless steel appliances. There is also a guest bedroom on the first floor with a full bed and a full bath that is shared with the living area.

Upstairs features an extra-large king-bed master suite with ocean views, en-suite full bath, and an enormous ocean-view deck and wrap-around veranda. The upstairs also has a large guest bedroom with a triple bunk bed and a separate single bed. This bedroom also has a full bath and a large veranda with ocean views.

The detached guest cottage features 2 single beds and a full bed, a full bath, and a kitchen complete with refrigerator, range, sink, and coffee maker.

Amenities include super-fast and reliable STARLINK internet and WIFI, private pool, air conditioning, laundry room with washer and dryer, hi-fi stereo, cordless telephone, satellite TV and DVD player with USB and TV screen. Outside there is a gas grill and an outdoor table for dining beside the pool.

The town of Governors Harbour, the main town on the island, is just 5 minutes from the property by car. Governors Harbour has grocery stores, restaurants, liquor stores, two banks with ATMs, a bakery, gift shops, a dive shop, and a medical clinic. It has a nice little collection of 19th century homes and churches overlooking a picturesque harbor. You can buy fresh fish and lobster every afternoon from fisherman at the town dock. Friday night Fish Fry in Governors Harbour is a street/beach party that brings together all the tourists and locals with food, drink, and dancing in the street. You won’t want to miss it.

Upscale beachfront restaurants in the area include Pascal’s at Sky Beach Club (International cuisine with Bahamian influences), Tippy’s (international and fusion), The Buccaneer (Bahamian cuisine with Caribbean-Chinese fusion), 1648 House, and The Rainbow Inn (famous for its steaks and seafood). The above all have live music one or more nights a week, so there is live entertainment somewhere nearby almost every night. The Governors Harbour area also has numerous little takeouts and restaurants offering local cuisine, including Da Perk (coffee shop and sandwiches), The Banks Road Deli, Bacchus Fine Foods (gourmet restaurant and food store), Mate and Jenny’s (pizza and Bahamian), the Sunset Inn (local cuisine), and LeoRose Sunset Beach Bar and Grill (local cuisine, drinks, live music).

We set the rates this way to make the property more affordable for smaller groups who use less utilities and put less wear and tear on the house.

Jennifer A B. from Boothbay Harbor, ME US recommends this vacation rental.

This was the best choice and rental property that we have ever used. It was true to the pictures and descriptions. The house was big enough for both families to have room together and also spread out. Everything we needed to make meals was there. Governors Harbor was a great place to roam around in . Plenty of restaurants and Cafes to eat at and little boutiques to explore.
The best part for all of us was getting up early and walking down the path to the pink sand beach. Amazingly beautiful sunrises every morning.
This is a place that we will definitely book again.i have already given the name and rental company name to a couple friends.

Andrew G. from CLINTON CORNERS, NY United States recommends this vacation rental.

Overall we were very pleased with our visit to Miss Ruby. This was our second time staying in Givernora Harbor on Banks Road. The house lived up to its billing, and was more than comfortable for our family of four plus my father who joined us last minute for a couple of nights. The pool is super convenient and fun for the children. The upstairs rooms with en suite baths are large and accommodating. The downstairs bedroom does not have the same privacy as the upstairs rooms and guest cottage but is comfortable enough.

Walk to the beach is quite easy, and the location is very private. The internet connection leaves something to be desired, but they were in the process of upgrading it while we were there.

Michael V. from Buchanan, New York United States recommends this vacation rental.

Reviewing a house I have booked 3X seems counter-productive, but here goes. My group of 8-9 over the past 3 years goes back to Miss Ruby for these reasons.
• Great location. 5 to 15 minutes from everything we enjoy.
• The pool. Perfect layout for relaxing and gathering of the family.
• The private beach 5 min walk away. (need I say more)
• The layout. The guest cottage is a perfect match with the big house. Everyone has their space but room to mingle.
• The house is clean, spacious and the A/C’s work great.
• Miss Ruby is not brand new. Kind of like a country farmhouse. (we like that)
• Misty was always reachable and responsive to our questions and any slight concerns.
• Booking with Pam @Eleuthera Vacation Rentals is something I actually look forward to. We talk year-round. She is now a friend.

You cannot go wrong by booking Miss Ruby. Just don’t take my week in 2024!!

Cathy G. from Indianpolis, IN US recommends this vacation rental.

This house was perfect for our group. Everyone had their own bath, room on main floor for the grandma and the casita for the teenagers worked out great. Lovely pool. A short walk to the beach to the most beautiful stretch of beach that goes on forever, is perfect for swimming and has hardly anyone on it. Trees for shade. House had plenty of chairs to take down. The location is great for exploring the island. Went to Tilly’s (delicious and great setting), Buccaneer Club in town (so good) and La Bougainvillea (my favorite lunch spot for the view and food). Make dinner reservations. Misty was great and responsive. House was clean and really bright and pretty. Upstairs bedrooms have high ceilings and outside balcony access which is nice. House had everything we needed.

Miss Ruby is a very comfortable and relaxing house. The design with two en suite bedrooms upstairs and one downstairs was great. The best was the detached Guest house. We had 3 teenagers staying out there and it was perfect! Kitchen is well stocked! Could use a few more mixing bowls! But otherwise we had it all. Misty the caretaker was there if we needed anything...which we did not! The beach is just down the private road, very easy. Great rental for families!!

  • Manager Responded on 2/7/2023

    It's a 3 1/2 minute walk down the dirt driveway from the house to the beach. You don't have to cross any roads. Most guests will find that it is not necessary to drive the distance to the beach.

Wesley C. from ROME, NY United States recommends this vacation rental.

Miss Ruby is a great place with a wonderful location. We traveled the island for a week searching out hidden beaches while staying at Miss Ruby. All were great but the family's favorite was right in our backyard. The tide pool and beachfront just 400 yards down the path makes your jaw drop each and every time you set eyes on it.

The only drawback was the lack of Internet. The description may say it has wireless but it is a pipe dream. We had maybe three minutes worth over 9 days. We got used to, and learned to appreciate, disconnecting but if you plan on doing work or Zooms while here I'd pass on this place. Halfway through the week I discovered a hidden hotel down the road where I could steal Internet from their parking lot. I made it work, but it was a pain.

We absolutely loved Miss Ruby! The home is so charming and just what you'd expect from a Bahamian home with a coastal feel with some antique furnishings. The pool is lovely and pool house gave our party just enough space and privacy. The grounds are extremely private and short walk to the beach and private cove was magical! We will definitely return.

amanda r. from Greensboro, NC United States recommends this vacation rental.

We are repeat visitors to the island and have stayed in several other rental houses all along Eleuthera. Miss Ruby has by far been the best overall. The location was so close to everything you need: groceries, beaches, restaurants, etc. The house itself was incredibly well stocked and clean. We are used to packing extra spices, some kitchen utensils, flashlights, bug spray, floats, etc. but Miss Ruby had everything you needed and more! Our only con to the house were the beds. All of the beds were just thin mattresses on top of wood slats in the bed frame that were incredibly loud any time someone moved. Luckily, we were too tired most nights for it to be a huge problem, but if you’re on vacation to rest up and catch some extra sleep, this may be a bigger problem.

Misty was so nice and accommodating without being ove bearing. She met us upon arrival and showed us around the house and then let us swiftly get into vacation mode. We will definitely consider this house again for future visits.

What we didn't realize was just how magical Miss Ruby's and the beach down the private path would be. We will be back! Everything exceeded expectations

Miss Ruby was a great house for our trip. Because of the late notice due to Hurricane Dorian we had to relocate houses and would have loved an extra bedroom but we made due. The kitchen and guest house were well appointed for all our needs.
Our only real issue was with the beds. All our adult guests felt they were rock hard and a couple of us even slept on couches to avoid using them.

  • Manager Responded on 12/3/2019

    I'm so glad you enjoyed your stay! I'm so sorry the beds were too hard for you. I have never heard that comment in the 100+ times I have rented this property, so I don't know what to make of it. But I will be sure to check with the guests who stay there in the weeks ahead.

Samantha K. from Cornelius, NC United States recommends this vacation rental.

We finally were able to make the trip to Miss Ruby's after all the covid issues and it was just what we needed. We had 6 adults and it was perfect for our group. The only thing lacking was some kitchen items, I tried to make brownies one day and ended up making them on a sheet pan (using two boxes of mix) but it was all good! We cooked at the house about half the time and went out about half the time. We had a bird visit us at the pool every day and enjoyed watching him with our morning coffee. The beach was beautiful and we only ever saw maybe 4 other people on the beach at one time, so it was great to have it to ourselves. The only thing to add would be different internet, if you intend to work while here, it is a wifi hotspot, so it may be a little difficult to connect to a VPN or do video calls. But I was on vacation and didn't intend to do ANY work and it was perfect for checking email periodically, posting a few pictures, and periodically we were able to use it for facetime to check on the kids at home.

Roomy and comfortable, with a tremendous outside pool/deck/bbq area. The pool house bedroom (3 beds) ideal for the young adults. Pam at Eleuthera.Vac Rentals is a pro with excellent communication.

Joseph K. from Salina, Kansas United States recommends this vacation rental.

My wife and I stayed @ Miss Ruby for a week with our two young boys Jett (5) and River (2). The home is tucked away privately in the middle of palm trees with an amazing wrap around porch and pool. A short walk or drive down the access road leads to a secluded beach that has an amazing beach, tide pools and unobstructed views for miles. You are minutes from La Bougainvilla, Tippys, and Bacchus. It takes about 10 minutes to get to Governors Harbour for food and drinks. Under 15 minutes from Ten Bay.

The home was prepped and ready to go...we honestly didnt have to call or contact Justin (manager) for a single thing. Although it was just my wife and two boys, there were enough bedrooms and beds for multiple families. We used to BBQ grill by the pool many times and the kids enjoyed cooling down after long days at the beach. I can't imagine someone having a sub par experience. Can't wait until the next time we visit Eleuthera.

It was great location and comfortable space, loved pool area and airy white bedrooms! The bunk beds were not comfortable, as our kids are older so that would be only complaint as well as shower pressure.


Highly recommend

Ethan M. from United States recommends this vacation rental.

The property was more than expected for a family of 5. Great location just off the beach. A quick walk to the perfect spot. Clean and easy to manage. Had all the stuff you need or want except maybe kayaks. The issue with the screen door was addressed right away and very professional.
When we go back to Eleuthera we will definitely use this rental company again. Our trip had a highly unusual event from a storm surge taking out a section of the Queens Highway. This stopped us from traveling to the North Eleuthera airport. Pam at Eleuthera vacation rentals kept us aware of the event, gave us recommendations on how to proceed and arranged for us to stay longer if we could not get to our flights.
Very pleased.

David L. from Canton, GA United States recommends this vacation rental.

While we would love to keep Miss Ruby our family secret, the fact that our two week stay was so superb, we owe it to the owners, Misty, and the managing company to share our experience. For the family or group that enjoys relaxing by the pool or beach and willing to accept the "off the beaten path" traits that come with it, Miss Ruby is an excellent selection for a holiday.

The beach was the best on the island in our opinion, and we spent 40% of our waking hours there relaxing, reading, playing with our children, and floating in incredibly clear waters. The house was very comfortable, and while there could have been better utensils and pans (we love to cook!), we were able to make due for every meal. The pool and tiki hut grill were also very well maintained and became part of our daily routine. The property overall was well kept and other than a few ants that seemed to have olympic sprinting pedigrees, Miss Ruby was very easy to get accustomed to which allowed us to have a great family vacation.

For those that are looking for a location within walking distance of the essentials, let's be clear now, you NEED a vehicle. The property manager Misty was essential in helping us navigate this selection well. There is one restaurant (Tippy's) within walking distance, and maybe two if you are willing to get wet and sandy on a 2-3 mile walk to the south along the beach.

The only other advice I'd give someone staying in Eleuthera and planning to cook, make the trip down to Rock Sound to the Marketplace for groceries. It is the closest grocer to what we have in the states, and it is about a 35min drive. Other than that, don't be afraid to explore as the people are amongst the most friendly we have experienced in the Caribbean and Miss Ruby is a great "base camp" for your adventures.

    The Rock Sound Market is one of only two true supermarkets on the island. (The other is Birchie's near ELH airport.) The Rock Sound Market will deliver and pre-stock the house for you! They even have online ordering. So you can place your order before you come to the island, and it will be waiting in the house for you when you arrive.


Beautiful home!

christine c. from DeKalb, IL United States recommends this vacation rental.

This property was so beautiful and clean-exactly as pictured. The beach is perfectly located and was calm most of the week...the sand color was so pink that it is hard to describe. The only negatives were that the beach had a lot of trash that had washed up on shore that really spoiled the natural beauty at times and we felt the property owners along this stretch of beach should consider banding together to keep it cleaned up. Also, food is an issue, as grocery stores are not available like back in the States. I would highly recommend heading straight to Rock Sound for groceries at the beginning of the trip. We did not do this and really wished we had because there were literally no good options other than Rock Sound. Lastly, my other best advice is bring bug spray and don't venture out anywhere without it. I have been to many islands but this one tops all the rest for bugs- however, we do believe some of this may have been due to the time of year that we visited. The people were the nicest people we have ever encountered-- everyone is happy and wants to help with whatever you need. We just can't say enough about the Eleutheran people. Definitely visit the Sapphire Hole on the North end of the island- super fun! Matthew and Misty were very helpful- wouldn't hesitate to work with them again!

  • Manager Responded on 7/28/2018

    The beach trash on the island is indeed very sad. It is said that it's thrown out by cruise ships. It is not always present, but is periodically washed up by storms. The noseeums, too, come and go on the island. Fortunately, when they are present, they come out at dusk and at night, and are not a problem during the day when you are most likely to be on the beach. You do need to be vigilant, however. The mistake people make is to ignore them as they nip at their legs in the evening. Then they wake up a day or two later with hundreds of itchy red bumps. There are two grocery stores in town, 3 miles away. They carry the basics. There is a true supermarket 45 minutes away. You don't have to drive there, however. They will deliver and pre-stock the house for you, and they even have online ordering.

Clean, well-appointed and well-equipped home in an idyllic and private location- maybe saw two other people at the beach near the house each day. The property manager was also amazing and always helpful!

Our family of 5 and two grandparents found Miss Ruby to be perfect in most every way. Two week rental over the Holidays. Misty was a true pleasure and both she and Matt assisted to make everything wonderful. Other than very minor things (wifi) no complaints at all and highly recommend!

Steven C. from Columbia, SC US recommends this vacation rental.

Stayed for 7 nights in June. My family of 5 with three kids stayed in the Main House and two adult guests stayed in the guest cottage for 5 nights. The house was terrific. Plenty of space, common areas were great with plenty of seating and the kitchen was plenty adequate for our needs. The cottage was a nice simple extra space for our guests. The pool was amazing and clean. The grounds were tastefully manicured and the property was large and private. We had a short walk to the beach. Pink sand, blue water beautiful just like all the other beaches we visited. Twin Cove & French Leave beaches are less than ten minutes drive and are amongst the best in the world. We ate at Tippys and 1648 while we were there and they were both great. Town of Governors Harbor is charming and we had a blast at the Friday Night street party. Took a fishing charter out of Spanish Wells (1 hour north) and visited Lighthouse Beach (2 hours South). Lighthouse Beach is easily one of the most beautiful places on Earth, I'd put it up against anywhere in the world, it's that special.
Caretaker for our house was terrific and was easily reachable by phone for any concerns. House showed the wear and tear you would expect for a beach rental in a tropical climate but everything was in satisfactory condition and they even replaced an AC unit that was a little less than 100% even though we wouldn't have even complained about it. We bumped into many locals around our house and the people here are probably more friendly than anywhere else in the Caribbean I've been, though they are certainly still on Island Time so relax and don't be in a hurry.
Can't recommend this house enough to explore the beautiful island of Eleuthera.

D L G. from Adairsville, GA United States recommends this vacation rental.

Nine people. 77yo Uncle, 60s couple, two 30s couples, one 20s male, one 2yo.

Ms Ruby is set up perfectly for our family. Our son and his wife with our grandson were in the pool house, so we could put the 2yo to bed and still party at the big house. The house was comfortable and more than adequate for our needs. The pool was a great place to play with the grandson after being at the beach. The grounds are lovely. There is a latticed car port to park three cars and shade them somewhat.

The beach is almost private and it is beautiful. Soft pink sand with the southern end protected by Culmers Rock (limestone outcroppings that extend to the reef that protects the bay). The water is gorgeous and there's a ton of fish to be seen snorkeling along the rocks.

The house has beach chairs, an umbrella and several beach towels you can take to the beach, along with a small cooler.

The beds are hard, but you get used to them...and I rarely find a bed that I like anyway.

It was a wonderful week. Misty, the property manager, was great.

A guest from Roswell, GA United States recommends this vacation rental.

We stayed in Miss Ruby as a group of 12. We had a great stay. Misty, the house manager was super helpful in showing us around town and helping us with any questions we had. The beach is not quite as close as it seems in the picture, it is a 5 to 7 minute walk to the beach. Once at the beach is one of the most beautiful beaches we’ve ever seen! All the beds in the property could use a soft mattress topper, they were all hard. Tippy‘s restaurant is a fun environment and good food, it’s about a 25 to 30 minute walk on the beach, or a quick five minute drive. Buccaneers in town was great. Definitely do the fish fry on Friday night, was the highlight of our week!

  • Manager Responded on 4/11/2019

    A couple of clarifications regarding distances and time: I actually timed the walk to the beach once with a stop watch and it was 3 1/2 minutes. Tippy's is one mile away, and the drive takes 2 minutes.
