Nestled in the embrace of the turquoise waters of the Caribbean sits Snaresbrook Manor — an impeccable luxury vacation home in the Governor’s Harbor of Eleuthera, Bahamas. Perfectly situated on a panoramic pink sand beach and with premium appointments from top to bottom, this pristine property stands as a testament to the serene luxury and natural beauty that this tropical island paradise has to offer. Tucked away from the other bustling Bahamian tourist spots, Snaresbrook Manor is a hidden gem on the outer Island of Eleuthera that provides an idyllic escape for those seeking tranquility, extravagance and the allure of a private oasis.

The property offers seven bedrooms and nine bathrooms in the main house plus a separate on-property apartment with nearly all having an ocean view. Its sizeable second story balcony provides a sweeping sea view in all directions as far as the eye can see. This sprawling estate also boasts a 40 by 25 foot heated beachfront pool surrounded by plush loungers, large indoor and outdoor dining and seating areas, commercial-grade kitchen with top-of-the-line appliances for luxury vacations and retreats with lodging for up to eighteen guests.

Other deluxe features include a plush media room with oversized HD flat screen TV, fitness room with gym-quality equipment, covered pergola and cabana with a bathing area and outdoor bathroom, a water filtration system and an on-site orchard.
