Victoria Hill house description

“The Blue House” is the ultimate vacation home located on the beautiful island of San Salvador, Bahamas. Just steps from the beach and centrally located on an island that is packed with history, adventure and fun! The Blue House is spacious and comfortable. Its large open living room with vaulted ceiling and three sliding glass doors which opens to its huge deck overlooking the beach and its clear turquoise waters provides the most spectacular views and sunsets. The deck has a large picnic table and a gas barbecue to enjoy many meals outdoors. Two hammocks and many lounge chairs are also awaiting you to while away the hours. The master bedroom overlooks the ocean with sliding glass doors opening to the deck. Off the Master bedroom there is a full bathroom and a second bedroom .

As you step into this house you will know what paradise means!



San Salvador Access Information: San Sal, as it is called by locals and regular visitors, has an airport with a large runaway to support landing and taking off of large jet planes. To get to Nassau ( from a US departure point), US Airways has good deals usually, also Jet Blue and Spirit Airlines, American Airlines, United, Delta and Continental sometimes have good offers. From the Northeast of the US , you can find flights as low as $200 plus tax round trip. Bahamas Air has one daily flight leaving Nassau at 11:00 am to San Sal and on Saturdays also at 2:45pm (seasonal , please inquire with Bahamas air) Round trip ticket about $220for adults , children up to 12 pay half) It is a 50 minutes flight.

Spirit Air also has a direct flight from Ft. Lauderdale to San Sal on Saturdays only.

Getting around San Sal: San Sal has several historic sites being the first landfall of Christopher Columbus' fleet. It also has the last of the manually kerosene operated Lighthouses of the Bahamas, a truly special and nostalgic piece of history brought by the British. The views from the top of the lighthouse are not to be missed. There are also caves, ruins from old plantations and cays on the northern tip where the San Salvador Iguanas live, these species are native to the area and can only be found here. Bird life is also abundant with San Sal having many salt water lakes. San Sal is served by Queens Highway which runs its entire circumference, about 60 miles. For that reason, to explore sites like the lighthouse and others, a car or a scooter is recommended (both can be easily rented) or you can take an island tour with one of the tour guides.


Internet access: Available at the house, although service can sometimes be down - and when it is down in the house, it is down in the whole island...it can happen for a couple of hours or for a day!
