Selah Vie is just 800 feet from the warm, protected turquoise waters of Eight Mile Bay down an easy path.

There is one king bed, and two twins which can be joined to form another king. There is also a queen sized air matress for your use if needed. The kitchen is fully equipped and provides a great place to prepare breakfast, pack a lunch for a day of exploring, or grill up the day's fresh catch.

Year Purchased: 2011
About the owner: Ray is a Geochemist who helps his clientele reduce their risk in finding oil and gas resources. Dawn is the General Manager of an organic dairy where they produce grass-fed, organic milk and dairy products.
We've been married since 2000, have two children, and are looking forward to gracefully coasting into retirement over the next 10-15 years.
Why the Owner Chose Bahama Palm Shores: We traveled around the Bahamas numerous times between 2003 and 2010, and we made a special trip for our anniversary in 2011 specifically to look at different properties, but this one was not on our list. We spent the weekend looking at many properties, but none of them inspired us like 'Tree Tops'. That was the name the property was called before we bought it.
Perhaps the tipping point for both Dawn and I was the handwritten quote from Isaiah 41....'For I am the Lord your God, who takes hold of your right hand and says to you, Do not fear; I will help you.' We both noticed it as we were walking through the house, and it was one of the first things we commented on when we were alone and comparing notes.
We went back home and immediately started the process of buying the home, and viola'......7 months later the property was ours.
The previous owners were school teachers and since they were in the middle of the school year, they needed a place to stay. So we offered to rent the house to them until they were done with school, and this worked out fine for us as we were just getting comfortable with the idea of owning a vacation home so far away. We were gnawing at the bit to visit Selah Vie and to start putting our personal touch on things, and finally in July 2012 we got to stay in our home for the first time.
The Unique Benefits at this Villa: This property spoke to us right from the start and we just felt comfortable immediately. The house is secluded and quiet, which is just what we were looking for. It is very near to the beach and the beach is just beautiful. The house was well-maintained and really just needed minor renovations/adjustments for us to feel at home.
We're confident that you'll fall in love with Selah Vie just like we did, and we feel blessed to be able to offer this wonderful experience to anyone who wants to come and visit.
