Double Bay house description

Privacy is yours! Our charming beachfront cottage is situated on six acres of undisturbed land near the end of a two-mile pink sand beach. It's perfect for couples seeking solitude or a special honeymoon. The house sits on a sand dune several hundred feet from the waters edge. The only thing between you and the beach are palm trees and a beautifully landscaped path cut through the coconut palms. The all-sand beach has a gradual slope to the water. Great swimming, beach combing, snorkeling and scuba diving are just steps from your back door. Our one bedroom cottage is brightly decorated with many furnishings handmade by local artisans. Rustic terra cotta tiles, a wooden ceiling, and ceiling fans add to the charm.In 2010 we renovated the kitchen, bathroom and exterior with all new windows and doors. Inside and out, this home provides the backdrop for a truly relaxing, tropical island experience!

                          Double Bay is a two mile pink sand beach centrally located south of Palmetto Point in the middle of Eleuthera on the Atlantic ocean. This private area has both a beautiful beach and excellent reefs. Our home is situated on 6 acres of natural beach frontage. Many guests return to our home each year for the privacy it provides. For those that like to explore, nearly any road you take from the main highway leads to paradise. Local communities offer dining options, grocery stores, banks and shops making it possible to obtain nearly everything you'll need for your stay. Snorkeling, diving and fishing guides are also available on the island. From the Pineapple to the Conch Festival, communities up and down the island host a variety of events throughout the year. These are always a favorite of our guests. For those seeking a little more action, Harbor Island is a short drive and ferry ride away.

                           

                          Owner info

                          Year Purchased: 1995

                          About the owner: We are from the Chicago area and are a family of six. Tom and I grew up vacationing along the Gulf and Atlantic coast as children. We stayed on a private island in the British West Indies for two weeks after we were married and we fell in love with the natural beauty of the islands. Five years later we visited Eleuthera for the first time and feel in love with Double Bay beach, the island, and the wonderful people of Eleuthera. We bought our first property before we left!

                          Why the Owner Chose Double Bay:
                          During our first trip we traveled the island from Harbor Island to Bannerman Town with never a thought to buy anything here. The first week we had discovered Double Bay and kept going back to 'our' beach. It was quiet, natural, seldom did we see another person on the beach, and we loved the sound of the waves crashing. The second week we found ourselves in the realtors office staring at a map of Double Bay with lots marked off for sale. By the time we left we had our first little piece of paradise! A year later we renovated the make-shift garage on the property to a house, and have been going down several times a year every year since.

                          The Unique Benefits at this House:
                          Eighteen years and 4 children later we still come to our favorite place on earth. In 1995 there were only 2 phones on all of Double Bay, no cell service, and internet was not even available on the island. If you were lucky you had a window air conditioner in the bedroom. Each year we would add something new to the house or property. In 2011 we finished a major house renovation with new windows and doors, a new kitchen, air conditioning throughout the house, and Wi-Fi. It's amazing to think about all the technology improvements in such a short time yet the island is still much the same as it was 18 years ago. The beach is as beautiful as ever, the island really does recover after a major hurricane or two, and the people of Eleuthera still welcome you like family. It's truly been a privilege having this piece of paradise, sharing it with people like you, and most importantly spending days and weeks playing in the sand.
