Property description

Villa de Palmas was designed by an architectural firm that specializes in Mediterranean/Caribbean style homes with the High End Client in mind. The estate occupies nearly 3 acres on a very secluded pink sand beach and is situated on one of the highest points in the area commanding a 360 degree view of the lush tropical foliage and the azure seascape. There are two very private homes apart from one another yet close enough for same parties. One home being very large and grand while the smaller cottage adds to the estate distinction. Both have fully appointed rooms affording magnificent panoramic views and brilliantly designed to capture the gentle trade winds that bless the island. All are generous and comfortable and include a great rooms, fully equipped modern kitchens, office desk with DSL high speed internet/wireless networks, telephones, entertainment areas with bose sound docks, dinning, and living areas, functional outdoor pergola with a stone dining table, bar and barbecue combination patios, tables, 2 separate lounge areas with high end chaise accommodating 8. Large covered wrap around Loggias with stylish furniture. Each home has 2 master bedrooms all with their own balconies with 3 having separate outside entrances. There is a Library breezeway perfect for reading or just the quiet space, as well as a Laundry room and much more. The smaller separate private Cottage home captures a stunning ocean view above and through the palms and is a bit closer to the ocean complimenting the estate.

Entering the Grand Estate of Villa de Palmas is a capturing experience, distinctively Perched high on a hill which can be seen at a distance. Tasteful entry monuments establish your arrival from the road followed by low decorative walls as you enter the properties interior circular driveway. In the center is a Pineapple Fountain and pond adding to the tropical elegance.

The Estate of Villa de Palmas has been family owned since its inception. After 3 years of searching, the right piece of beach front property was purchased in 1989. The estate took 8 years to develop with a vision for grandness 'island style'. With gratitude, we can share the wealth of the land and water that has been blessed with such beauty and serenity. Today after 25 years, Villa de Palmas continues that vision. Just a few welcoming steps up from the entrance will afford an enlightening rejuvenation of what island life should be, totally carefree. The Main home is elevated atop a hill uniquely distinguishing itself with a 360 degree view, capturing the azure sea on its east facing loggia. The Cottage home compliments and expands this beautiful estate. Take in an afternoon tea, enjoy a spectacular view of the sea, feel the ocean breezes and smell the villa’s flora, fauna and unspoiled vegetation. Villa de Palmas is in a class of its own catering to the affluent client.

The Estate's crown jewel is just a short walk down a sand pathway lined with sea lilies and palms to the secluded powdery and pearlescent pink-sand beach. With its crescent shape stretching 3 miles and an abundance of natural sand dunes with sea oat grass, sea grapes and coconut palms, you will be immersed in its tranquility. Stroll along the shore at waters edge and you will soon discover the hidden coves welcoming you to take a dip in the warm crystal clear turquoise water. On your way back, pause at the beach’s entrance under a 16 foot palm thatched-roof tiki pavilion. Four whimsical and colorful designer chairs invite you to take a siesta after your beach walk - the perfect venue for gazing at the sea while you listen to the songs of the wind through the casuarinas. Tune in or tune out this is a perfect setting for mindless relaxation. You may be there all day, it truly is paradise.

Owner info

Year Purchased: 1989

About the owner: Both my wife Dhjanna and I are the grateful owners of this beautiful Mediterranean Estate on the island of Eleuthera in the Bahamas...Villa de Palmas. 'Palmas' meaning many palms describes the estate quite well. The Land was purchased in 1989. After many years of hard work the estate was complete in 2000. We truly are amazed at how well it all turned out and continue to add improvements. My wife and I have 2 wonderful girls 15 and 19, yes they are a handful. I am an international airline pilot for a major airline in the USA. Our home is Philadelphia and we frequently travel to the Philippines where she is from for family visits. Needless to say we manage quite busy lives. Our goal is to share what we have in the unique way of offering the estate. It is a real joy to hear all the vacation experiences of our guests over the years. Life is beautiful and we feel very blessed. Thank you so much for taking the time to visit our site and we look forward to having you as our personal guests in our beautiful home on the lovely island of Eleuthera in the Bahamas.
