Richview is a newly remodeled, luxurious, 4-bedroom, 4-bath home, located fifty yards from the world-famous French Leave Beach, one of the most beautiful beaches in the Bahamas. Richview has spectacular views of the beach and ocean. It is located on the historic Banks Road, the premier location on Eleuthera, a mile from the town of Governor’s Harbour, and also from Tippy's Restaurant. Richview also has a beautiful heated pool that can be enjoyed by the entire family. (Pool heat is optional for a fee of $300 per week.)

Amenities include a full-service, well equipped kitchen, air conditioning, brand new front load washer/dryer, WIFI, satellite television, three flat-screen TVs, DVD player with video library, VOIP phone with free unlimited local and international calls, child and adult games, paddle boards, both a gas and charcoal grill, a full house generator, and a new foosball table!

Richview offers great outdoor living spaces, with a huge wrap-around deck, loungers, a large umbrella, gas and charcoal grills, outdoor dining area, two outdoor showers, a pergola for shade, and a second level deck with a second outdoor dining set, and a built in bench for spectacular outdoor entertaining.

You enter Richview into the spacious, newly renovated kitchen/living/dining/bar area, as well as a full bathroom with a spacious walk-in shower. The 11’ quartz island, with built in oven and range with overhead ventilation, seats six comfortably. The large dining area accommodates at least eight and also hosts a built in wet bar. This family room has a couch, love seat and chair, in addition to a large custom built-in cabinet, which hosts a 55” flat screen television. The brand new, full sized, front load washer & dryer are located in a small laundry room to the right of the entrance. The sliders to the rear deck, and the first outdoor dining area are located straight ahead. To your right is the computer room (with wifi and VOIP phone) and access to the two first-floor bedrooms. Both of these bedrooms have king size beds and full bathrooms.

Returning to the main living area, you take the steps to the second floor. Here we have a breakfast nook, with sink, refrigerator, coffee and tea pot, microwave, living room with 50” flat screen, couch, and sliding glass doors to the front second level deck and seating area (all with BEAUTIFUL beach and ocean views). The first newly constructed bedroom has a queen size bed and sliding glass door to the second level deck and a spectacular beach and ocean view. The second bedroom two twin beds that can be converted to a king, full bathroom, and a private deck, overlooking the natural beauty of Eleuthera and Charlowe’s Pond behind the house. From this level, you can enter the sundeck, hosting the second outdoor dining area, and built in seating bench. The views from the deck are truly spectacular. The ocean is 50 yards away and you can see the pure beauty of Eleuthera.

Just walk across the street and down our private path, and you’re on the beautiful pink sand of French Leave Beach (also known as Club Med Beach, for the Club Med that was located there many years ago). There is excellent snorkeling off the southern end of this beach, a minute or two walk from the private path.

Richview comes with everything you need to enjoy our beautiful beach, including snorkel gear, beach chairs and umbrellas, and two outdoor showers.

Tippy’s famous restaurant is just a mile away, offering fine dining and live entertainment. Other upscale restaurants nearby include 1648 and La Bougainevillea, as well as many casual dining venues like The Buccaneer Club, DaPerk, and Bacchus Fine Foods. The town of Governor’s Harbour, the main town, less than a mile away, has grocery stores, restaurants, a coffee shop, liquor stores, two banks with ATMs, a bakery, gift shops, a dive shop, and a medical clinic.

"Beach Paradise
The house is very well appointed, steps from an incredible beach. The caretaker is the nicest person ever and our vacation was fantastic....
Covid and the bahamian "lockdown" helpd the place to be next to deserted which added to the total relaxation package. This is not my first time...ther e will be others"

"Great Rental Right Next to French Leave Beach
Great property located right next to French Leave Beach that easily accommodated our group of 10. Property was clean and the layout of the house allowed for some privacy during the week-long stay. Pool was fantastic and all of the porch space allowed for great views of the beach and meals outside. Beach and property are more impressive and beautiful in real life! Proximity to Governor's Harbour, beaches, Tippy's and other restaurants/supermarkets made it an ideal location.

Only downside was that the honeymoon suite's AC unit didn't work for the first 4 days so that area was warm. Anne (caretaker) and her group gave us a fan for 2 days and sourced the difficult to find part to fix the AC for the remainder of the stay. Other than the AC issue Richview was the perfect vacation residence.

Giving a 4+ star rating instead of a 5 due to the AC issue, but this property is fantastic! I look forward to my next vacation at Richview!"

"Fabulous house
This property was great for 6 people, plenty of space ,huge outdoor decks, beautiful sunsets on the rooftop decks, comfortable beds,huge showers. Perfect central location .Matt Simon once again found us the perfect place on this beautiful island."

"Needs some TLC
Location was great. Beautiful views. AC in one bedroom did not work so had to sleep on couch, grill was disgusting and did not work, pool was not working...pumps would cause breaker to trip. There answer was to throw chlorine tablets into pool. We had them fill the pool so the skimmer would work but we still had to flip breaker constantly. Boards on porch were rotted. This seems like somebody is trying to sell it but not maintaining the house."

"Richview Is Great
Richview itself was wonderful. The home was fully stocked (better than any other home we've stayed in). Having 2 kitchens was really nice for our sized group and the property manager was very accomodating. Grounds & Pool were all well maintained. Eleuthera itself has so much potential but a ways to go in being eco-friendly. The island displays lots of trash on the sides of roads and sadly the beaches too. This did take away from our vacation & I wouldn't feel right not giving an accurate assessment of the area. If the locals & outside investors take the time to figure out how to keep the island, beaches & ocean clean it would be pure Heaven. "

"The Perfect Get a way to "get a way"
The home was exactly as described and the beach was a 1 minute walk away. Having your own pool is priceless! The upstairs guest suite is perfect for privacy. Anne the caretaker is phenomenal. She made our trip perfect (and her fresh bread is amazing!)"

"Good Not Great
Richview is a wonderfully conceived off-beach property. The design is light, spacious and airy. If properly maintained, it could be a superstar. Regrettably, at the moment -- perhaps because it is for sale -- the property suffers a bit from a lack of attention and care.

The good: spacious, conveniently located, mostly comfortable, decent cooking facilities, mostly well-stocked

Room for improvement: beds are horribly uncomfortable, screen doors fall of tracks when moved (every time), many windows have no screens, pool was dirty/cloudy, some advertised amenities didn't exist (ample snorkels and fins -- I think there was 1 set), and various minor maintenance issues (light bulbs, worn paint, etc.).

For a property that charges premium rates, expectations are commensurate. This is where Richview fell short, in our opinion. For less money, this would be palatable. For a higher end priced property, it may be unjustified.

Eleuthera, still, is a beautiful location and Richview sits across the street from an amazing beach."

"Richview, Eleuthera
Our party of 8 (6 adults, 2 children) had an outstanding stay at Richview. The house is on a "main" road less then a mile for Governor's Harbour and steps from a beautiful beach. House was very clean and inviting with a small pool for relaxing around. Island people were very friendly and helpful answering our questions. But beware food, restaurants, gas, etc are all very expensive so plan accordingly."

"Wonderful Spot!
Just returned from a month at Richview. It's ideally located close to Gov Harbour and on the island's best beach. We explored Eleuthera top to bottom and can honestly say that we wouldn't have wanted to be anywhere else. French Leave beach is stunning! Matt went above and beyond providing tips and info on things to see and do. The house is very well appointed and comfortable. Bachus fine foods and Tippy's are both walking distance. Fantastic spot on a fantastic island! "
