Welcome to FOLLY!

One of the most beautiful Victorian Houses in Governors Harbour Eleuthera, with breathtaking views of the Harbour from sunrise to sunset. Sunset cocktails are an absolute must!!

The main town of Govenors Harbour, steps from our front door, has grocery stores, restaurants, liquor stores, two banks with ATMs, a bakery, gift shops, a diving shop, and medical clinic. You can buy fresh fish every afternoon from fishermen at the town dock.

Friday Night Fish Fry in the Harbour is a street/beach party that brings all of the tourists and locals together with food, drinks, and dancing in the street. Something not to be missed… and you can walk ...

Governors Harbour also has a beach on the harbor which you can see from the front of the house, and which you can walk to in two minutes.

Enjoy a beautiful night on the wrap around porch, dining alfresco and sipping cocktails while watching all the boats and activities.

FOLLY has been updated and features a large elegant living room with a gorgeous, open, sun-filled plan, overlooking the harbor and featuring light sheers for total privacy.

Sarah B. from EATONVILLE, WA US recommends this vacation rental.

Folly was a perfect spot for our family to enjoy Eleuthera! Its central location made it easy to explore this amazing island and the historic house is full of character and charm! We loved Governor's Harbour and appreciated being able to walk into town. It was hard to leave! The owner was very helpful and responsive and Kristen of the property management was a great source of ideas and helpful recommendations as we planned our trip! We will cherish the memories and are grateful for our stay in this beautiful home!

Excellent house for a large group, well appointed with everything you need including paper products, spices and linens. The sunsets from the front porch were spectacular! And one of the best things about the house was the owner, Martha, who couldn’t be more accommodating!

Ken K. from St Augustine, FL US recommends this vacation rental.

The Folly house is in a great spot in Governors Harbor. We had amazing sunsets from the front porch. The house was built in 1850 and was supper cool. Everything was in good shape except one of the ceiling fans and an AC unit. The staff was all over it and fixed the problem. The location is really handy to a food and beverage stores. Best of luck to all people that choose this great property.

A guest from Chiloquin, OR United States recommends this vacation rental.

Folly is a lovely old home in great condition. It is well cared for, very comfortable,up to date. Sitting on the front porch is wonderful, the view of the water, the Cay, sunsets.
The home is a few steps from grocery stores, etc. One can walk across the island in 15 minutes to French Leave beach. And you can walk to the Friday night fish fry in a few minutes.
Martha, the gracious owner is always available to help in any way.
