Salt Pond house description

Immaculate and completely private 2 bedroom (3rd bedroom - optional), 1 full bathroom (2nd full bath available with 3rd bedroom option) beach house right on 5 miles of sandy beach on the non-windy Caribbean ocean. Excellent bone-fishing and snorkeling right out your front door. Beach House Villa is located on a privately owned peninsula with a turtle preserve (which cannot be built on) as it's neighbor to the east. If you like to get away from it all and relax on a romantic beach while finding seashells and sponges, this villa is for you. 1,000 square feet total (2,000 with 3rd bedroom option).

Lower level of Villa has a master bedroom which can have one king bed or two twins (specify prior to renting). A screened lanai, a fully equipped kitchen areas and living/entertainment area. Tiled throughout. Sit out on the lanai to eat your dinner while watching the spectacular sunset. House is impeccable. Ceramic tile throughout. Fresh water in the villa along with a wide selection of DVD's (of your choosing - see selection). Second bedroom has a pull out queen sofa. Both bedrooms have ocean front views on the main level of the home.

Bikes and Kayaks are optional upon request. All new furniture purchased in 2014.

Salt Pond/Thompson Bay is the most desirable place to be on the island due to it's central location in the middle of the island. Salt Pond is the annual site of the Long Island regatta. The villa is located on a privately held peninsula off the main road Queens. In Salt Pond you will find well stocked grocery stores, a local restaurant, gift shop, dive shop, cave tour, video and DVD rentals, gas station. To the north there are gourmet restaurants, a local clinic with emergency helicopter, marina's, and the Columbus monument. To the south there are more restaurants, museum, cave exploring, blue hole, etc.

Long Island is 'the prettiest island' of the Bahamas. It is perfect for families. The island is a divers paradise. On the west side of the island are calm beautiful endless beaches of the Caribbean Sea (you will find our villa here). The wind is less fierce here so you will find the sand made of seashells (ideal for splunking) and it is shallow (perfect for bonefishing or toddlers). On the east side, you will find rocky shorelines on high cliff's and windy breezes from the Atlantic Ocean where waves crash against sharp cliffs. We highly recommend to explore this entire island as each beach is unique and you will find something different on every inch of this island.
