Welcome to Alfred House & Cottage, a new, luxurious, and secluded beachfront estate with private pool on the north end of world-famous French Leave Beach (formerly Club Med Beach). There are no houses between this house and the mile-long beach of pink sand where a Club Med once stood, 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 and smell of the ocean from everywhere. Alfred House is located just a mile from the main town, Governors Harbours, which has stores and some excellent restaurants.

Alfred House is a 4000-square-foot, 6-bedroom Colonial style home (including an one-bedroom cottage), located just 25 paces from the beach. 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 french windows, so as you move through the house, you see the sea at every turn. The house is furnished with distressed Indian teak antiques and custom pieces made of teak, mango, & cherry woods, and black and white photographs of movie icons. There are Honduran hardwood floors, cypress cedar ceilings, and marble and slate tile.

Downstairs, Alfred House features a vast great room that looks out through a wall of glass french doors at the beach and ocean. The open-plan kitchen faces the ocean, and features custom wooden white shelving with Mexican 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.

Outside, the downstairs features 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 drinks or coffee where you can see and hear the ocean.

The upstairs of Alfred House has four more bedrooms. The two upstairs master suites have king beds; spectular ocean views, big decks, and full en suite baths. The two smaller bedrooms have two twin beds in each. Each pair of twins can convert to a king upon request.

The upstairs 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. It is furnished with comfortable white lounge chairs.

The one-bedroom beachfront house 50 yards from Alfred House has a huge 1100-square-foot teak wrap-around deck overlooking the sea. Inside, the house has 800 square feet, a large great room, full kitchen, separate bedroom, and a full bath. The living room has two rollaway beds which can be set up in the living room, so the cottage can sleep up to 4 guests. Alfred can sleep 14 guests.

Five of the six bedroom have ocean views!

Amenities at Alfred House include full AC, a large flat-screen TV with DVD in the media room, high-speed internet with WIFI and a washer and dryer. The house does not have cable or satellite TV. Housekeeping is provided two times per week.

Alfred House is surrounded by over 20 acres of secluded wild nature, full of casuarina trees, coconut palms, giant cacti, sea grape and lettuce, even though we are only a mile or so from town. Explore French Leave Beach, and see the ruins of the old Club Med, which was swept away by a hurricane. There is excellent snorkeling right off our property.

"Alfred House
Have worked on Eleuthera and have personally become a frequent visitor to the Island mostly from Rainbow Bay to South Palmetto Point. Alferd House location is a perfect private and relaxing experience. The beach access and the pool make it ideal. One thing that may make the house more endearing would be outdoor furniture on the second level decks outside the living room and bedrooms. Great stay regardless as in my thoughts no bad stays on Eleuthera. Heading back in September and again in April.

"Tropical Paradise
Alfred House was perfect for our group of 10 adults and 1 toddler. House was in great condition, beautifully built, well maintained, and spacious. The beaches in front of the house are spectacular!!"

"Beautiful Home but Rough Roads
I am about to be “that person” who says they never write bad reviews but in this case it’s true. I am typically a handle any issues outside of leaving reviews kind of person but I wish I would have been warned of these things before we spent as much money as we did to go to Eleuthera and specifically the Alfred House.

Pros: the house is beautiful, the beach in front of the house to the right has amazing snorkeling. We saw sea turtles, a barracuda, and so many beautiful fish. This side of the island the water is a bit rougher than the other side but we still found it amazing. It’s also very private. We practically had the beach to ourselves for several of the days. Matthew who you book through is incredible and so helpful. The kitchen has everything you need for a large group.

Cons: the road to get to the house is VERY rough. It has quite a few pot holes, lots of tree roots and the brush on the side was overgrown and scratched the sides of our rental cars. Thank goodness the person we used for our rental cars warned us of how bad it was and didn’t give us nice vehicles because of it. Christine, the house manager, was a bit hit or miss. We had a little issue the first night we were there of her getting upset when we couldn’t keep up with her driving to the house (we had 3 cars following her and we landed after dark so it was a bit tricky). We also had a hard time getting ahold of her once we were there to get questions answered and sorted. The grocery stores in Governors Harbour have very limited supply of fresh produce and meats, just a warning. The wood floors of the house are very noisy but most of us had kids and slept with a sound machine so that made it better when some people were walking around upstairs. The pool is also really nice but it’s very cold. Of course, we wish it was heated but not a huge deal.

Overall, we felt like the house sadly wasn’t worth the price and effort"

"Family celebration of our 30th Mariage Anniversary
The island was not so beautifull as expected. Very expensive, poor supermarkets. But the beaches, marvelous. The house rented, the place were the house was lactaed, for sure, the best. Couldn ́t be better. We enjoyed snorkeling, scuba diving, went to different islands and beaches, running from the house to different trails. Our stay at Alfred ́s House was perfect. "
