Welcome to the French Leave South Beach!!

This newly constructed villa is located directly on the most sought-after beach on the island, a mile-long stretch of pink sand that has been ranked in the top 20 beaches of the world. French Leave Beach has only half a dozen houses on it and is usually deserted.

The "Dogtrot" villa features spectacular sea views from every room. The great room looks out at the ocean through a wall of windows. The sea view kitchen is fully equipped with stainless steel Bosch appliances and African mahogany counter tops.
The Dogtrot has two master suites, each furnished with a king bed and equipped with a full en-suite bath appointed in African mahogany. Both bedrooms have ocean views. The bathrooms feature full showers and Rohl fixtures throughout. - There is a rollaway bed available for a 5th guest if needed.

Beyond the private doors made of African mahogany is the outdoor living space offering 180% views of French Leave Beach and the Atlantic Ocean.

Amenities include vaulted tray ceilings, ceiling fans, air conditioning, WIFI, flat screen cable TV, washer/dryer, and a backup generator, grill, beach chairs, cooler & umbrella.

The settlement of Governor’s Harbour is half a mile away, where you’ll find restaurants, grocery & liquor stores, the Haynes Public Library (1897), antique churches, gift shops, coffee & sandwich shops and the Levy Health Clinic.

Come and enjoy French Leave South Beach…the other Bahamas!!

"This place is amazing!!!
This is the 4th time we've stayed at Dogtrot Villa and it won't be our last. This place never disappoints. It's the perfect location, size, has well-appointed kitchen, and the most comfortable beds I've ever slept in. Having the most beautiful beach at your doorstep tops it all off."

Our experience was excellent! This rental was booked last minute after an airbnb disaster and it had all the accommodations we needed! The property manager was awesome and the place was spotless! I would definitely recommend this location to anyone visiting this beautiful island. The beach front access and location are unmatched. "

"Absolutely Perfect!
This was our first trip to Eleuthera and the Bahamas and we couldn't have been happier with Dogtrot Villa. The villa was beautiful just as shown in pictures, the beach is just steps away and it's centrally located making it great for exploring each end of the island and everything in between. Pam was so helpful in booking the reservation and Michele was great once we got there, answered all questions and attended to our needs. I would highly recommend this property and we most certainly will rent it again if back on Eleuthera."

"Truly Amazing in Every Way!
This trip was our first visit to Eleuthera (and the Bahamas) and it started out as a couples trip but ended up turning into a girls trip instead which was so much fun! The house fit us perfectly and everything was exactly has described in the overview and pictures. The beds were comfortable which was great since we were there for 9 nights. Everything was very clean but our only little frustration was there was no broom in the house and since we spent so much time at the various beaches, it would have been great to have a broom. The living room furniture was very comfortable. The kitchen was well equipped and had most everything we needed. We cooked some great dinners and breakfasts in the villa. The bathrooms had plenty of towels for bathing and the beaches and the washer and dryer was very helpful. It was extremely windy for the first few days so we didn't really hang out at French Leave Beach for the first few days but that is the beauty of Eleuthera, you can always go to the Caribbean side and find calm beautiful beaches. The villa is in the middle of the island which made it convenient as we fully explored all 110 miles of Eleuthera. There is a similar villa right next door which was also booked (and this was their 3rd time staying there). Lots of good food but definitely check out French Leave Resort for breakfast. Lastly, I have to say that Pam at Eleuthera Vacation Rentals was so wonderful and helpful. Since this was our 1st time here, she answered a ton of questions for us for the last year! We were extremely comfortable traveling by ourselves because of all of the information Pam gave us! We will stay here again and book through Eleuthera Vacation Rentals."

"Just the ticket
great property for two couples; amazing beach literally on your backyard, close to Tippy's and Buccaneers "

"Perfect Getaway

"Peace and comfort
A perfect ending to a unsettling year. "

"Perfect For Relaxation
Absolutely delightful 2 bedroom villa on one of THE most beautiful beaches. Ideal location - close to Governor's Harbour Settlement. House is comfortable & thoroughly equipped for your stay - great towels, linens, pillows, kitchen ware, beach chairs & umbrella. Sunrises & sunsets are utterly dreamy from this front porch. What we liked is that is beech style without being "beach-themed," if you get what I mean."

"Dog Trot Villa
Wonderful house with a breathtaking view of probably the most beautiful beach in the world. Manager Michele
was friendly and always available when we needed her. The house was clean and had everything we needed.

We enjoyed local restaurants (Buccaneer, 1648, Da Perk and Tippy's). Food and service was excellent.

Don't bother with the Rainbow Inn restaurant, food was so so and the service was poor. BTW the bartender may or may not put tequila in your margarita. Also check your tab carefully.

Da perk is perfect for breakfast and a great cup of coffee. The staff even provided a togo order of homemade pancake syrup to complete our Christmas breakfast (somehow we lost our previously purchased syrup between the grocery store and the villa). Da Perk saved the day!

Speaking of groceries bring lots of cash and I mean lots of cash. We are still enjoying our $9.00 box of Triscuit crackers that I brought home to the States. The local grocery store is well stocked but brace yourself for the prices. Baucus is a great place to get deli meats and cheeses, they also sell a $12 box of crackers, yum.

While we were there we enjoyed long walks on the pink sand beaches, stand-up paddle boarded with turtles, and visited and fed the pigs on their own private island.

We will definitely be coming back!

"Perfect rental on a great beach
We had a great time and loved the location of the house so much! It was in a great location and on a great beach!"

"Great location, great house
This was our first trip to the island, and we are glad we stayed in the Governor's Harbour area. The Dogtrot house is on a lovely stretch of beach and close to restaurants and grocery stores. The house is in great shape, with nice linens, new furniture, a fully equipped kitchen, comfy bed and plenty of hot water. Oh, and the generator definitely came in handy!

While you have everything you could need inside the house, this property could benefit from better beach amenities. The neighboring house had kayaks, beach gazebo, solid umbrellas, beach rakes, etc. The umbrella provided was broken and the beach chairs were more like lawn chairs, so difficult to carry to other beaches. No snorkel equipment or floats provided.

We enjoyed Eleuthera, the beaches and especially the warm, friendly people. The property manager, Michelle, was professional, friendly and responsive.

With just a few upgrades, this property would be perfect. If you are looking for a modern, clean, well-located house on Eleuthera this property is a good option."

"Amazing property on best beach
We shared this home with our friends and our 18 month old and wow we Weill be back! The house is perfect for two couples as both sides of the house have ocean view master bedrooms with their own en-suite. The kitchen and living space that is shared was perfect for taking a break from the beach. We highly recommend this house and after four other trips to the area this is now our favourite. It’s close to town and she many restaurants including Tippys a huge favourite. We can’t express enough how much we enjoyed our stay in this house!"

"Great Location and Beautiful Villa!
I would highly recommend this Villa! It is in a great location, close to town, but also on a beautiful beach without many people. The property is beautiful and very clean. Michele was very helpful and attentive to our needs. "
Dec 18, 2018 - Leonard Z., Aledo, TX

"So Beautiful you won't believe your eyes
The property was absolutely beautiful and the beach is unbelievable! It was so peaceful on the front porch for coffee every morning. The power went out twice for a brief time and the generator kicked in immediately. The kitchen had everything you would need to cook a meal and the washer and dryer were a huge bonus. Wifi was very fast and they provided cable TV as well. We had a wonderful stay and would recommend this property to anyone. "

"Dog Trot
Amazing home. Michele was so helpful during our stay. "

"Great week on a beautiful beach
Place was really nice and the management team could not have treated us any better. Still feels new. We cooked a number of meals ourselves and we had everything we needed. The back porch on the beach is heaven. Beach is beautiful and there were very few others on it. "

"French Leave South Beach
The French Leave Villas are rich in Eleuthera traditional style but cutting edge for today's Five Star expectations and demands.World Class!
The French Leave beach is stunning! one of the finest beaches in all of the Bahamas. "
Jun 11, 2018 - Paul T.

"Excellent Villa!
This lovely home is just as the pictures suggest. Exactly! We would not have changed a thing about the home. Stocked kitchen, clean bathrooms, cozy beds, great view! Michele met us at the house and was welcoming and helpful. the location was wonderful for activities and restaurants. "

"Dogtrot Villa
It was wonderful. We loved staying in the Dogtrot Villa near Governor's Harbor. The unit was beautiful and clean and the beach is amazing. We loved the location and that we had the option of walking into town for breakfast or lunch."

"Fantastic Vacation!
It was truly a beautiful renal home and location! We could go back time and time again. Best Beach in Eleuthera!"
Feb 28, 2018 - Sherrie B.

"Fantastic property!
We absolutely loved the Dogtrot Villa! It is a beautiful home on a gorgeous beach. It is brand new, was spotlessly clean, and everything works! Generator did kick in on few days and worked great. Internet was very good, had satellite TV if you wanted it. The location is perfect for access to groceries, restaurants, etc. but still quiet and private. Loved it! Would highly recommend. Pam, Michelle, and team managing the property were wonderful to work with! Very responsive, friendly, and professional!"

"Impressive and beautiful home
The house is so nicely designed and has a perfect location. The beach couldn't be nicer. The house was furnished very sophisticated and simple, not a lot of clutter or typical beachy style; it was stocked with whatever we needed to cook, grill, watch movies or chill on the back porch. The water was occasionally off, but fixed very quickly. Towels were clean and fluffy, checkin was super easy. I recommend this home and the sister home next door any time. "
