Stella Maris International - Customs & Immigration
This Stella Maris area is a resort community with a hotel, club house, restaurants, bars, marina and also a residential community. The Stella Maris International Airport is just a 5 minute drive away.
Year Purchased: 1989
About the owner: OK, so just one of us is a bit pool crazy: That's Judd. Check out his view: see the White Cliff's in the background? Just about the spot that Columbus viewed on his second landing in the New World in Oct 1492.
Dale and I are from Chicago, did our business there and retired to this PERFECT spot 23 years ago.
AIN'T life GRAND !!!!!!!!!
We (Dale and I) met at College and eventually after Judd's short career in engineering, and Dale's in primary education, joined together to own the 4th generation family business. Business was FUN: but living here in The wonderful, healthy, fun Bahamas is 'MUCH MORE BETTER.'
The Bahamas was a PERFECT place for our growing family, during vacations for them, and eventually for their spouses and our grandchildren.
Judd is a private pilot and has taken Dale and the family, and many friends to other islands of The Bahamas. BUT Long Island is the BEST. The people of this island have made our many vacations into our HOME.
This place (our White Cliff Estate) has grown and has NOW allows us to sit back and enjoy our boat and all our adventures.
Why the Owner Chose Stella Maris: The White Cliff Estate wasn't our first venture here on Long Island. First, we came visiting; a short vacation rental visit, just like you are thinking about. Then after seeing this breathtaking view, and this amazing house designed, we learned later, by internationally renowned architect Ray James Holman Nathaniel (Go ahead look him up. His work was just taken into the collection at the Royal Institute of British Architects: and a talk was given about his work titled: 'under Closer Look talk: Caribbean Homes by Ray Nathaniels') we purchased it ALL. Who knew.
It was said that he hand-picked this site and sat on it for days until the design was finished.
We fell in love with the property 23 years ago. A few years ago we wanted an up-date and called Ray Nathaniel and asked how he thought we would best bring it up to the Newest Standards of materials and design. 2 1/2 years later (BAM !! ) we have our re-invented property.
Something very special about its location was important to us, and that is the constant soft Ocean Long Island breeze that allows for a cool BUG FREE climate and everyday pleasant living.
The Unique Benefits at this Estate: The benefits of his design gives shade inside the house while allowing wide expansive views of the pool, Ocean, gardens; great sunrises and sunsets. Mostly is the FUN FUN entertaining on all the decks, the outdoor living, while surrounded by tall garden walls, allowing secure privacy.
3 Zone air-conditioning, while useful at times, is not always needed as open giant Pella doors brings the Bahamas breeze circulating fresh clean tropical air - a breath of Tropical Paradise.
We have spent our time here assisting and sharing our time in another country. Many don't have that opportunity. Judd was appointed to serve on the Board of the Antiquities, Monuments, and Museum Corporation, the national government corporation responsible of the safety and research of National Cultural Heritage. (By the way, PLEASE go see the Long Island Museum in Buckleys. It's very current and Fun.) and ..............
Dale serves on the Ladies Friendship Club, the group that built and runs the Senior Recreational Centre in Grays (Take the time to visit.)
ENJOY your time on Long Island, our nice property, and: COME BACK at least once a week.
