Tir Na Nog
An Exceptional Beach Front Retreat
elcome to Tir Na Nog, an exclusive and enchanting private estate near the historic town of Governors Harbour, Eleuthera, a place where the legend of “The Land of the Ever Young” can come to reality. Here the flowers bloom all year-round against the backdrop of fabulous views of the Atlantic Ocean, casting their scents within the peace and serenity of the 10 acre gardens and walkways. Tir Na Nog is located in the most sought after location in Eleuthera, the Atlantic seashore on Banks Road, where there are a select number of Estates overlooking an amazing beach and only minutes from nearby restaurants and the charming Village of Governors Harbour. At Tir Na Nog your senses will be indulged. Interiors were recently renovated and designed by the gracious David Flint-Wood, co-author of “Island Style,” a wonderful book of what Island Life is. Applying the very flair that made the Island Style decor renowned, he used simple wood and white linens, organic materials, soft lighting and tropical touches ― warm and soothing to the senses. The Land: 10 acres of coconut lined rolling dunes and pathways lead to one of the most fabulous beaches you have ever seen. Stroll the miles long beach; stop in at Tippy’s restaurant for a cool drink or a bite. Lounge in the sun, in the hammocks strung in the coconut grove or under the beachfront gazebo. Covered with coconut trees and a variety of fruit trees, there is always something to pick and eat.

The Home: Tir Na Nog offers a very special set-up unknown in most places in The Bahamas. The “home” is actually 4 Cottages of brilliant design. The main one is home to the living areas complete with a beautiful kitchen, and living and dining area with high cathedral ceilings and dark wood floors. There is a covered balcony on either side of the main house with one side overlooking the tennis court. Across the driveway is the main bedroom house complete with a beautiful covered veranda with three large bedrooms all decorated with a similar feel to the main house. Towards the ocean are two self-contained, one-bedroom cottages with an amazing view out over the palms and the beach beyond. These five bedrooms all have private entrances and en suite baths, Three bedrooms are located in a house across from the dining hall. They are private and tranquil with exquisite furnishings in the simple Island Style ― crisp and refined. Two additional bedrooms are separate bungalows with private decks overlooking the coconut grove, and the shades of the crystalline of the beach and the azure of the Atlantic. Situated above the tennis courts with sweeping views of the estate and the sea, the living and dining room is a gathering place for all for fine dining, relaxation and entertaining. Outdoor grilling and dining is an option on the Northern deck, with upper deck for even fuller views and very much a retreat. This property truly is a treat to behold.
