Winding Bay villa description

Each home on Winding Bay, Eleuthera, Bahamas has a unique name ours is 'High Tide'. A 'High Tide' vacation will be one you will remember always. Your vacation home is just steps from 2 miles of pink sand beach and the extraordinary azure waters of secluded Winding Bay (pretty much your own private beach). You’ll revel in the luxury and privacy of the recently upgraded 3,560 sq. ft. 3 bedroom, 4 bath home with stunning views from every room. At the same time, you will find High Tide casually welcoming and family friendly. Our three children all learned to swim and snorkel right in the front yard. Each of the 3 bedrooms has a separate private bathroom and individual entrance opening to the beach…with 2 outdoor showers. The master suite includes a king bed, plenty of dresser space, walk-in closet area and giant soaking tub, with view! Bedroom 2, 'The Coral Bedroom' has two twin beds. Bedroom 3, 'The Sandpiper Room' has a queen bed and is secluded at the end of the house with a separate entrance and private full bath. The entire home is fully air-conditioned.

The 'Great Room', living area is open and spacious with lots of room for dining, lounging or watching satellite TV. Bring your Ipod and enjoy your favorites anytime on the Bose MP3 player. Free DSL, too.

Cooks will enjoy the fully equipped remodled kitchen with state of the art appliances. You can prepare the fish, lobster or conch gathered near your vacation villa (lobster in season, of course) or visit the wharf in the nearby village of Tarpum Bay where the local fisherman bring in freshly caught fish each afternoon. Don't forget to have Cindy (the house keeper) cater a real Bahamian feast of conch fritters, grouper fingers, baked grouper, peas and rice, the special local version of mac and cheese, coleslaw and top it off with pineapple-coconut tart. The local restaurants offer great opportunities to sample everything from local home style dishes to gourmet fare served on the deck while you watch a romantic sun set over a tranquil sea.

You might want to grill some fresh fish on the charcoal Webber. Ask Columbus (the property manager and source for information on all local attractions) for suggestions on local charter opportunities. Commercial fishing charters are available out of nearby Davis Harbor or from locals (very reasonable and in Atlantic waters right out in front of Winding Bay). Expect to catch dolphin (mahi-mahi), king fish, wahoo, cero mackerel, barracuda, grouper, and, yes, sailfish and marlin are possible. And don't forget the bone fishing almost right in the front yard.

You'll want to take the glass bottom kayak to check out the abundant sea life in the tranquil bay and the inside reef where you'll revel in the easy snorkeling. For the more adventurous, paddle out to one of the barrier reefs which set Winding Bay apart from the Atlantic but always let in the refreshing ocean breeze. The beach offers a waterfront cabana and plenty of beach chairs and lounges, as does the patio. There are many other nearby opportunities to explore secluded beaches, snorkle, indulge yourself in 'family island' culture or just sit back and revel in your own private tropical paradise. After all, it's always 'island time' in Eleuthera.

Housekeeping is available. Ask Columbus (the property manager and source for information on all local attractions) about car rentals or just check our personally prepared local guide book for shopping, restaurants, services, etc. Visit our web site for more information and available dates. Wyn Bradley handles rentals so, just drop her an email or give a call 954-401-4269. for more information visit
