Rainbow Bay house description

This newly constructed 3 bedroom 2 1/2 bath home is located on Lookout Road in Rainbow Bay. Appropriately named, the view looks out over the Atlantic Ocean. The house is 2-minute walk to Come N Go Beach. Steps leading up to a screened lanai invite you to the front entrance. Entering the home, the focal point is the spiral staircase to the cupola, which has spectacular views of both the Atlantic and the Caribbean. This luxurious home has tile throughout and mini-split a/c units in the main area and in every bedroom. Bedrooms include a king-size master with private bath, a queen, and a double. All beds have pillow-top mattresses. Decorated with Island flair, this beautiful home is furnished with all the conveniences. The living area has queen size sofa bed, flat-screen TV with satellite connection, wireless internet, and a docking station for your personal ipod.

The modern chef's kitchen has a granite island with 4 swivel bar chairs. Stainless Steel appliances in the kitchen include a French door refrigerator with water/ice maker on front, a ceramic stove top/oven with hood microwave, and dishwasher. The dining area features a 60' glass table with 4 comfortable chairs. Another dining table is located on the screened lanai, which also has lunge seating.

Located off the first floor is the laundry room, where the 1/2 bath is located, as well as brand new stacked Maytag washer and dryer with utility sink.

THIS IS NOT THE TYPICAL ELEUTHERA 'CAMP OUT' TYPE PLACE WITH A MUSKY SMELL, HODGE PODGE FURNISHINGS,SOME THINGS WORK SOME DON'T, SHARE IT WITH THE LOCAL ANTS AND SUCH STYLE PLACE. WE TAKE GREAT PRIDE AND PLEASURE IN SHARING OUR ISLAND DREAM HOME WITH YOU. PLEASE ENJOY AND RESPECT IT. MANY THANKS.

Our water is collected and purified through an advanced closed cistern filtration/uv light system. Each faucet throughout the house is connected to this system. If water levels are low in the cistern, we are connected to the Queens Hwy water, which also will flow through our specialized filtered system. This is a paramount solution to having fresh safe water on an island.

Within walking distance is Come N Go Beach, you can easily carry what you need for the day. On more adventurous days, when heading out, there are several beaches in the neighborhood of Rainbow Bay: Hidden Beach, Smugglers Beach, Twin Beach and Rainbow Bay Beach just to mention a few. There are 2 mountain bikes at the house, great for accessing local sights and beaches.

Amenities include air conditioning, WIFI, satellite TV, DVD player with video library, an outdoor gas grill. Equipment in the house includes snorkel gear, two beach chairs and an umbrella, fishing rods and tackle, cooler, and two mountain bikes.

If you are looking for a smaller place for just the two of you, check out Sun Terrace (Top of the World!)#382731. It's only a few blocks away and is a bit more of a bargain for just a couple(very private sun deck with shower).

                              Sea glass has become quite the thing in jewelry and Come & Go is one of the best sources you will ever see !!!! We have a lot of gear for snorkeling and surfboards and kayaks are available in Gregory town. Hatchet Bay Caves offer over a mile of exploring with great formations and a cool break if you get too much Sun.

A side by side stainless refrigerator with ice maker, goes through yet another filter on the appliance itself.
