Property description

Nestled in a palm grove and a rugged seaside cliff, this private luxurious architect designed oceanfront house has spectacular views from the elevated front porch and from every bedroom with immediate private beach access from the lower level. It comfortably sleeps up to eight
with four bedrooms, each with its own bath. The sunny
master bedroom has a romantic queen sized canopy bed and a large screen TV. Downstairs are three more
sunrise facing, island decorated bedrooms with attached bathrooms. Every bedroom is furnished with dark wooden blinds to allow people to sleep late despite the blazing sunshine outside! One bedroom has a king sized bed,
another has a queen and there are twin beds in the third that can be made into a second king bed. Throughout the house is a collection of colorful island paintings. The ocean side of the main
floor is all glass and is elevated to provide distant views
out to sea. You feel as if you are on a ship because all
you see is water! We frequently watch whales jumping and spraying from this porch! On the main level is the
great room, the kitchen and a library/office. There is also a half bathroom with beautiful alabaster sink and the Master bedroom has a romantic four poster bed with a net canopy and a bathroom with a tub and shower.
There is a gourmet kitchen and a dining area with a table seating ten and a separate library/study room. This main floor has an open plan with soaring ceilings and warm polished cedar walls. The wall facing the oceanhas large sliding glass doors which open to a covered porch that brings the outside in, and is furnished with elegant cushioned teak chairs and another table seating eight for moonlight dinners. There are rocking chairs and a commodious hammock for lazy afternoon naps! The porches are concealed by dense coconut palm foliage that rustles softly in the tropical breezes.
Inside the main living room there is a 50 inch digital satellite TV for movie nights or sports. There is also a Bose sound system with an I-Pod docking station for music which you will find more enjoyable due to the excellent acoustics of the room. Throughout the house is reliable WiFi internet access for your laptop computer. In the study are shelves stocked with books, puzzles, games, and reference and local history books to make your visit fun and educational. A sunny downstairs porch furnished with beach furniture and an outdoor gas grill looks out onto a private garden area for sunbathing and sand castle building. The beach and the surf lie beyond the dune for swimming, shell collecting, and at low tide, tidal pools for the children to splash in. There are also adjacent sea caves for exploring at low tide. After all of this, there is a whimsically striped outdoor shower with hot and cold water!

A diesel generator protects guests against power outages.

Location

Elbow Cay, Bahamas
Nearest Beach
Beach

Car: Recommended

Despite the Google map, there is no nude beach and never has been. We are located on a beautiful ocean beach with coral reefs for snorkeling right in front of the house. You can surf just off shore and whales can sometimes be seen from the elevated front porch! There are sea caves on the beach just to the north of Half Moon and in low tide there are pools for children to play in. We have been told this is the best beach on the island for sea glass finding!

 

Manager info

Year Purchased: 2008

Why Elbow Cay, Bahamas:
We have been coming to Hopetown for over 25 years and have always appreciated the natural beauty of the islands with their surrounding reefs and waters. We also enjoy the people we encounter who have found their way here by various means and come from widely diverse backgrounds. From the descendants of the original settlers to the boating people that wander into the harbour, snow birds, second home folks, Florida residents fleeing their summer heat and humidity along with our more recent arrivals from Haiti contributing to the Island work force; all add their own spice to this rich cultural stew!

The Unique Benefits at this House:
There is a wonderful feeling of privacy at Half Moon. We are located on a quiet unimproved road that doesn't get much traffic and are close enough to Hopetown for it to be convenient, but far enough away to not be bothered by it. The main view from the house is of the open sea with its ever changing moods which is framed by cliffs on one side and dense tropical foliage of palm trees on the other. You really have the feeling of being sequestered on your own island and while there is plenty to do on the outside, this is a place of peace and quiet!
