About the Property

Villa, 1 Bedroom 1 Bath, (Sleeps 2]

Back on the holiday rental circuit! A beautifully furnished villa, tropical style, in a spectacular and secluded location, with panoramic ocean views from a private patio. A wonderful garden of hundreds of palm trees and tropical flowers. Close to several beaches- and very inexpensive
Lookout Villa is over 1100 sq feet, not including two outdoor patios, one of 500 sq ft overlooking the ocean and another of 200 sq ft for sunset barbecues where you can grill your fresh fish or crawfish.

The villa's interior has high, vaulted wooden ceilings and ceiling fans, is fully air- conditioned and faces the ocean, except for the kitchen and bathroom, which look out onto a wonderful garden full of native vegetation and flowers. Lots of windows,mirrors and sliding glass doors display the ocean’s beauty.

The villa has 1 lovely bedroom facing the sea plus an unusually large bathroom. The rest of the house has an open plan feel,with a large, airy, sitting room with television to watch DVDs etc, a dining area, a well stocked kitchen, two halls and a separate utilities room containing a washer-dryer. Expect to feel on a tropical island both inside and out

Lookout is only a 3 minute drive to the famous Rainbow Beach where you can explore the exquisite waters and marine life with my new 2 seater Ocean Malibu kayak or snorkel gear! It is also just as close to other sandy beaches on the eastern, or Atlantic side of the island. It is perfect as a romantic getaway or for a small family vacation.

Plus it is just a couple of minutes’ walk from The Rainbow Inn if you don’t feel like cooking or driving, and the private tennis courts if you feel energetic. The nearest shop is 5 minutes' drive away and now we have an organic vegetable farm about half a mile north from the villa.

Originally I bought Lookout just for myself, not as a rental, so I have furnished it to my taste; expect lovely, new Indonesian bamboo furniture, large mirrors to reflect the water, and Haitian and Caribbean artwork.

I have internet so bring your laptop.We dont have Cable up here but I have a huge selection of good DVDs to watch

Lookout is tucked away on a side road and is very quiet and secluded. For example, due to its elevation and setting on the Atlantic, it is cooler and less troubled by mosquitoes and sand flies than properties right on the water or on the 'Caribbean' side. When you come to the island you will understand how important this is!

There is a sizeable tropical garden of half an acre- help yourself to fresh herbs, papayas, bananas, passion fruit and sugar apples in season or sit and read a book. The second lot to the east is left completely wild.

Another reason why I bought this beautiful villa is the location in Eleuthera [see map]- Rainbow Bay is a great location for exploring the whole island north to south, from Harbour Island to Lighthouse Point,100 miles of beaches, beauty and history! It is only 15 minutes from Governor's Harbour airport and 20 minutes from the bustling little capital itself. Much as I love the capital, here starry nights, fireflies hummingbirds and amazing tranquility bring me back to Rainbow Bay to the sanctuary of the villa.

Eleuthera is the vision people have of the Bahamas - beautiful and unspoilt. You can explore to your heart’s content, go bone fishing, snorkeling, surfing- or simply relax, relax, relax.

Full details of the amenities of the property and information about the island is to be found in the folder at Lookout Villa. I would be delighted to help you rent a car which will bring you directly form the airport to the villa, arrange a fishing charter, anything to make your stay as pleasurable as mine are.

Owner info

Year Purchased: 2010

About the owner: Originally from from England, I have lived in Nassau for 30 years where I used to teach English until January 2014 when I moved full time to Eleuthera. I am loving it and my new job in real estate. Every day after work at Hg Christie opposite the stunning harbour in Governor's Harbour, I go to the beach to swim, snorkel, do yoga and walk my dogs.

Why the Owner Chose Rainbow Bay, Eleuthera, Bahamas:
The house itself and location are stunning. For Nature Lovers, the garden is very large [two lots] and partially cultivated with hibiscus, bougainvillea, banana suckers, papaya trees, herbs and passion fruit whilst the rest is left wild- palmettos, various palms, pigeon plum trees etc.I chose Rainbow Bay as it has several beachesand it is fairly close to the capital, Governor's, but far enough away to be very quiet and restorative. There is now an organic vegetable farm close by too! As I am a Brit- Bahamian who has lived in Nassau for 30 years and is experienced in these matters, I selected the location of my property carefully. For example, due to its elevation and setting on the Atlantic, it is not as stiflingly hot or as troubled with sand flies and mosquitoes as many properties on the “Caribbean” [really the Bahama Bank] side of the island, which is important to my comfort as well as yours and a main factor why I bought this property! The breeze is very welcome indeed! Another reason why I bought this beautiful villa is the location in Eleuthera [see map]- Rainbow Bay is a great location for visiting Surfer’s beach 10 minutes to the north, just outside Gregory Town [home to one of my favourite lunch spots the Laughing Lizard Café], the extraordinary Glass Window Bridge, and only 40 minutes drive to Preacher’s cave or the ferry to world famous Harbour Island [a fantastic day out]. Not to mention a good, well stocked supermarket near the Bluff settlement, also 40 minutes’ away!There are dozens of wonderful beaches acessible from Rainbow Bay on Eleuthera and unlimited exploring to do.

The Unique Benefits at this Villa:
The stunning views over the palms and thatch palms in the garden and an enormous sea view from a private patio which changes with the weather.... feeling close to nature...... lulled to sleep by the sound of the sea....A house which is architecturally very unusual and in keeping with the island, furnished with a very tropical feel but all mod cons. Tranquility and beauty.
