Bains Bluff estate description

Solstice is a modern vacation rental on Long Island in the southern Bahamas. Our 10-acre property on the Tropic of Cancer includes two houses nestled in a tropical forest with stunning views overlooking their own private cove with a sandy beach. The two houses are always rented together for one price to ensure your privacy. Surrounded by hundreds of acres of undeveloped wilderness and two miles of wild coastline, Solstice is the ultimate place to get away from it all...

At Solstice, we strive to provide the most socially and environmentally conscious vacation destination available. All of the rent is donated to charities supporting basic human needs and the environment. Solar power and other eco-friendly initiatives make a stay at Solstice healthy both for you and for the planet. It is a true carbon-neutral vacation.

Your own private cove: Just a minute's walk from your doorstep, down a pleasant tree-lined trail, lies the dream of every tropical vacationer: a private secluded cove with a sandy beach and water that is as clear, calm and warm as a swimming pool.

Some rental houses claim that they have a 'private beach' but this usually means that the property owns a portion of a larger beach which is accessible to the public and visible from other houses. However, the beach at Solstice is completely surrounded by our property and the only land access is from the houses. The cove's seclusion and calm waters made it a favorite hiding place for pirates and smugglers in years past, but today the only footprints you will see in the fine white sand will be your own.


Relaxing at Solstice: Flowers and tree-lined paths surround both houses. Take a stroll through the gardens and help yourself to the fresh fruits, vegetables and herbs. Relax in a hammock or snorkel in the tranquil cove. Large decks on both houses are great places for morning yoga, spotting passing dolphins or watching for the elusive 'green flash' at sunset. At night, the view from the garden is perhaps just as amazing with the sky awash with the Milky Way and countless stars.


Perfect for couples or multiple families: Having two houses makes Solstice extremely flexible. Whether you are coming for a family reunion that makes use of all 10 beds or a romantic getaway, the space never feels overlarge or overcrowded. Though the houses are only a 30 second walk apart, a strip of forest provides privacy between them, great if you are traveling with a second family or staff.

                                  Why the Owner Chose Bains Bluff:
                                  It is remarkable to find a property with its own private cove and sandy beach. We looked at houses around the world and this property was truly unique. The houses were also special, designed and built with love by their owners and furnished with original art and furniture. Solstice is perfectly secluded and yet not TOO far from grocery stores, restaurants and other amenities. It's far from Seattle where we live but it's worth the commute!
