The compound is surrounded by very large properties -- all of which are privately owned. These homes are rarely used so there is true solitude and complete privacy.

Underwater visibility is up to 100 feet, with water temperatures ranging between 70 and 82 degrees Fahrenheit. The adventurous traveler can explore nearby islands and virgin coral reefs, or charter boats for world-class bone or deep-sea fishing. Other sports available on the island include tennis, SCUBA diving and surfing. The beaches here are truly spectacular.

                      Car: Recommended

                      This home is located on the private southern end of 'Club Med' beach,arguably the most beautiful beach in the Bahamas.Unlike Club med beach, you will usually find no one on Capricorn's beach . The homes in this section are all infrequently used private estates.Unlike many rentals this homes beach is extremely swimmer friendly, no pebbles or rocks, just perfect pink sand.Having an entire 16 acres to yourselves allows for the ultimate in privacy, the gardens will delight you as will views of the ocean from the numerous terraces and meandering pathways. You are in a secluded area on a private gated estate but only minutes from the restaurants.

                      The estate is five minutes from Governors Harbor. Markets, fresh produce and restaurants are all convenient. We have a house manager on the island who is available 24/7 should you have any questions.Another plus is the full bath located near the beach and also the numerous refrigerators located all over the property so cold drinks are always within reach.
