Owner info

Year Purchased: 2008

About the owner: We bought *OFF THE REEF* for many reasons. But the main reason is that we love Eleuthera. It is a comfortable, quiet way of life. No worries. We visit about twice a year. It amazes us every time we go. You feel like your coming back home each and every time.

Why the Owner Chose Central Eleuthera, The Bahamas:
WE LOVE IT! It's like living a dream, an unimaginable, unbelievable dream. A dream you will hopefully never wake up from.

The Unique Benefits at this House:
The best thing about *OFF THE REEF* has to be the view. SPECTACULAR! Miles of beach for enjoyable, long walks. The snorkeling is something else. Lots of beautiful marine life very close to shore. Do not forget the sunbathing, shelling, fishing and swimming too.
