Welcome to Unicorn Cay on the Island of Eleuthera in Governor's Harbour. "A place so magical surely unicorns could live here."
This luxurious beachfront estate sits on 12 acres with 450 feet of pink sand beach. Unicorn Cay was built by a famous English writer and explorer, Rosita Forbes. It is based on the style of a French Chateaux complete with a central courtyard and an entryway flanked by turrets.
The home was recently beautifully restored retaining the original Abaco pine floors, wood work, and native stone. The central courtyard has a covered patio overlooking the heated pool. The pool is heated during the winter months. Each of the four bedrooms have private entrances from the courtyard. The master also has access from the library. The large gourmet kitchen is equipped with a double Sub-Zero refrigerator, electric stove top and range, coffee nook, gathering island, and all the small appliances and utensils that you can think of. The home also offers a formal dining room, large great room with hand crafted walnut bar, laundry room, library, and media room. The numerous surrounding verandas and covered patios provide quaint areas for morning coffee or afternoon socializing.
The Unicorn Cay pink sandy beach spans 450 feet. Reefs are close by for easy snorkeling. You could walk for miles in either direction looking for beach treasures or just enjoying the incredible views. This beach is one of the most beautiful on the island. Kayaks, stand up paddle boards, and snorkel gear are all provided for your enjoyment.
Services: Housekeeping will be provided prior to arrival, after you leave, and once mid-week. (A minimum of 7 nights is needed for the mid-week cleaning.) Additional cleaning services can be arranged. A private chef can be provided upon request. A special event coordinator can be arranged for destination wedding or group event planning. A golf cart is provided for use within the property. In addition, a back up generator and cistern will provide utilities when electricity and water go off on the island. (This is a common experience on the island.)

The main house consists of the kitchen, dining room, great room, library/media, laundry room, verandas and courtyard pool area.

The owners of this property also own Jolly Mon in North Palmetto Point while simultaneously developing Unicorn Cay, a beautiful estate that is now being shared with a select few. The Villas at Unicorn Cay offers a unique opportunity to own a custom-built beachfront home on one of the top-rated beaches in the Caribbean. A small number of families will have a rare offering to own such a wonderful piece of paradise. Only approximately 4-5 homes will be built on this oceanfront property. You can still choose the size of your property and the design of your vacation home. Creating this special vacation retreat will be an enjoyable experience. This unique ownership of property does not come along often and should not be missed.

We had a magical time at Unicorn Cay! The beauty of the home and the location can not be beat. The home is warm, welcoming and perfect for a family. The view and beach are absolutely amazing with the softest sand we have ever felt. The owners and caretakers are easy to reach and very friendly. The location is great with many restaurants close by and the owners have a book with lots of suggestions. We did not want to leave and would definitely stay here again.

The perfect home for a Caribbean vacation with historical flair. Modern amenities with comfy beds and ample space to roam in and out. Jane was fabulous from the get go and was promptly in touch with lots of recommendations and answers. Only complaint was hot tub did not work while there. Do yourself a favor and book Horatio as your personal chef! We were blessed by his talents for 2 nights and wish we had booked more as the food on island was very pricey and mediocre at best. Eleuthera is breathtakingly beautiful and unspoiled. Will be back and definitely stay at Unicorn Cay.
