Rock Sound house description

This is not just a rental but a home with discerning guests in mind

Blue Ocean looks over the calm waters and stunning sunsets of the Sound. The jetty makes a great spot for Bone Fishing. The patio like the bow of a ship driving into the Sound, which along with the Cabana on our own sandy beach provides a wind shield from seasonal North Easterlies. Beach Gear and Ice box on hand while our Kayak is available for the more energetic. Ideal for children with a large enclosed balcony/patio complete with paddling pool and play toys for the little ones. We also keep an abundance of beach towels and mats

The Master Bedroom has an en suite bathroom with Tub and French Doors leading to its own patio overlooking the Ocean. The second Bedroom has two single beds and a garden aspect to the front and side. The third Bedroom has a double bed with garden views while across the passage is a further Bathroom with a large open shower.

The large Sitting /Dining room has seating for up to 8, leading to the Front Door and enclosed Porch. The Seating area has a large comfortable sofa and French Doors leading to a large protected patio virtually on the Ocean. A comfort/play Sitting room, which can be used to sleep an extra guest also has French Doors to the Patio for easy outdoor dining or BBQ. The delightful fully equipped kitchen also has a dining area and views over the ocean

An outstanding holiday with no neighbours, close to nature and spectacular deserted beaches, with the best island bone fishing just to the South, bird life all around and yet all close to the friendly villagers of Rock Sound and the biggest food store on the island - this is the place to be.

              Visit the local Ocean Holes: peculiar to the Bahamas these big ponds surface from holes in the coral islands many metres below the Sea Surface. Rock Sound houses one of the biggest.

              You can Bone Fish in the Sound from your doorstep, although there are many very good flats within a few miles from Blue Ocean.

              The freshest and finest Conch Salads on the island are available at CoCo Plums, literally within walking distance of Blue Ocean

              Spend the day at Light House Beach on the Southern tip of the island. One of the worlds best kept secrets ......three beautiful deserted tropical beaches in one and by staying in the South of the island it does not take you hours to reach.
