If you are renting a car, which you really should consider, they will have it ready for you at the North Eleuthera Airport. If you decide not to rent a car for your trip, your other option is to take a taxi which will probably cost you over $100 to get to Governors Harbor from ELH.

Thanks, yes we are definitely looking at renting a car - but do you (or anyone) have any information about where I could get quotes for this etc? (so we can factor it in to our budget...)

If you are flying in and out of North Eleuthera, then it's probably best to rent a car. There are a number of rental options in the list below. Renting from those near North Eleutera will mean not paying a drop off/delivery charge. Rentals average $50-$60 per day, and do not include gas, which is currently $5.85 per gallon. Depending on where you are staying in Governor's Harbour, having a vehicle to get around is probably the best option, unless you have no plans to sightsee beyong your hotel. If you are right in Governor's Harbour itself, most everything is within easy walking distance (grocery, liquor, souvenir, petrol station, bank and ATM/cash point machines, library)

If you choose not to rent a car for the duration of your stay, or just for a few days, you can opt to take a taxi from North Eleuthera to GH. It is about 45 miles and will cost around $100. Another option woudl be to rent a car in North Eleuthera, then ask the rental operator to collect it from you when you are done in Governor's Harbour, you may have to pay a $40 or so drop off fee.

Is there a reason you have chosen to go to North Eluethera, rather than flying in to the Governor's Habour airport, which is only 8 miles from town?

If you can get flight to Gov Harbor , it would be better as others have said. Rental is best -cheaper& more convenient/flexible ESP if you want to see any of many beautiful parts of Eleuthera/ beaches.

We've rented w/ Stanton Cooper and we recommend him highly. His number is listed w/other reader.

Good luck.

Thanks everyone for your responses!

We would definitely prefer to flyi to Governor's Harbour, but I have found it really difficult to find flights? I have been using expedia mainly, and they seem to be all via 2-3 stops!!!

Does anyone know if there are flights direct from Miami to Governor's Harbour? (and if so, what airline or the best search engine to look for these?)

Also, does Stanton Cooper have an email address, if we do go down the rental route?

Thanks very much :-)

American stopped flying MIA-GHB and I don't think anyone flies that route now. You can fly non-stop FLL-GHB on Continental or Twin Air. If the flight MIA-ELH works well for you I would just book it. The drive is not a big deal and you can easily get a car dropped at ELH.

I don't have an email for Stanton Cooper but I do have emails for Israel Johnson and Byron Rolle, both of whom I have rented from. Israel will drop a car at ELH for $30 and then charge $50 a day rental.

Hi, great info on here regarding rental cars by the way. just wondering about flying into Rocksound Airport ( coming from Georgetown, Exuma ) and getting a rental picked up there? Have contacted one of the people who rent off of Hut pointe's reference list (awesome list) and thought at the time we would be flying into GGH, and could pick up there, however there seems to be a direct flight from GGT to RSD in the early am, which would be great to avoid the Nassau connection. My question is: would there be an additional charge for pickup at Rocksound, I know about the extra $30 drop off when you leave ( we are flying out of North Eleuthera ) . Thanks for any info.
