Set it a quaint Bahamian village with views of a candy striped lighthouse, Chrysalis fronts on the bustling harbor and backs to a mile-long sandy beach. Spend your days strolling the beach, body surfing in the waves, visiting the history museum, or snorkeling in the crystal blue waters. Or get more adventurous and rent a motor boat to go island hopping, go out on a charter fishing trip, or go scuba diving with Froggie's Out Island Charters. In the evening, enjoy cocktails on the porch and then wander to one of several restaurants offering local Bahamian cuisine. Hope Town has it all!


Manager info

Year Purchased: 1988

About: Our parents discovered and immediately fell in love with this idyllic Bahamian island in the late 1960's. Shortly thereafter they purchased this plot of land with hopes of someday building their own retreat. After 20 years and 3 children, our father, a Cambridge, MA architect, was able to realize his dream design with the construction of Chrysalis. Today we three children enjoy bringing our own families to this special island to experience the relaxed Hope Town way of life.

Why Hope Town:
Our property allows for idyllic views of the harbor and is steps to the white sandy beach. The dramatic architectural design combines the interior and exterior living spaces. The studio allows for private sleeping from the main house. Chrysalis is centrally located in the settlement of Hopetown; steps to restaurants, shops and beaches.

The Unique Benefits at this House:
Chrysalis is at the most narrow part of the island with frontal access to the harbor and rear access to the beach. The unique, architectural design of the house allows privacy while being in the center of town activity.
