Whymms villa description

A breathtaking, uniquely designed house nestled in lush gardens and situated on 2 ½ acres of beautiful, nearly deserted beach. Complete privacy and seclusion are guaranteed, so Slipstream is the perfect place to take things easy and unwind.

Slipstream is unique. It’s quirky, cool and completely different from any other beach house in The Bahamas. Looking out across a tranquil bay and shaded by palms, Slipstream makes the most of its stunning location and natural surroundings. Its groundbreaking design blurs the boundary between inside and outside and offers light, airy, open-plan living under a high domed roof. It is ideal for those who prefer laid-back living to a de-luxe lifestyle.

Slipstream is on the shore of a usually deserted bay on the Caribbean side of the island and faces west for spectacular sunsets. The 5-mile-long bay’s sandy tree-lined beach and shallow waters make Slipstream ideal for kids. In the morning or late afternoon, rays can be spotted from the beach as they swim along the sandy sea bottom. Dilda Rocks, at one end of the bay, is a good place for a first snorkel. Or you can take our kayaks out at sunset when the sky turns lilac, pink and mauve and watch the sun dip beneath the golden sea.

              Owner info

              Year Purchased: 1999

              About the owner: Rich is British, Carla is Brazilan and live in New York City. We love to spend at least 4 weeks per year at Slipstream (the name of the property). The place is really a piece of heaven....quite, beautiful, sunny...perfect place to recharge the energies! The best thing about the house as a property, is that is not only steps from the water, but even when you are inside, it feels like you are outside as it is quite bright, open and breezy.

              Why the Owner Chose Whymms:
              We love the layout that offer privacy and openness at the same time. The central house you have the common area with kitchen, dinning and living room, where you listen to the music, have a drink with friends and hang out with your friends and family, and when you are ready for that lazy time alone, you move to the rooms on the separate wings (south and north from central house).

              The Unique Benefits at this Villa:
              The house is designed to capture and circulate the sea breezes and Slipstream is further cooled by fans, not air conditioning units. Its 3 simply furnished buildings are connected by decks and it sleeps 8 people. In the main building there is a basic kitchen, a dining table, a TV loft and a large, fantastically comfortable day bed/lounging area flanked by an expanse of windows overlooking the sea. The ‘wings’ are mirror images of one another. Each has an upstairs bedroom with bathroom facilities and a balcony, and a downstairs bedroom, with a separate bathroom and a dayroom. The combination of a large communal area and private spaces makes Slipstream perfect for a get-together of family or friends.
