Property description

Bahama Sunset is a beautiful island home set on rugged cliffs overlooking the quiet Caribbean Ocean!

Guests at Bahama Sunset have a view of the crystalline blue-green waters from every window, and each night can watch stunning sunsets glide into the ocean from the wrap-around deck that hangs over the cliffs. You'll find excellent snorkeling and diving a one minute walk down the stone cut steps that bring you to your own private lagoon.

The marine life in our 'lagoon' includes colorful parrot fish, balloon fish, moray eel, grouper, lobster, crab, needle fish, red fans, sea snails, many varieties of coral and all kinds of other beautiful sea life. Eleuthera is a quiet, rural island and the nearby village, Gregory Town, is a sleepy harbor town full of friendly Bahamian natives. The night life at Bahama Sunset includes an orchestra of crickets and the dance of the ocean in the lagoon.
