Property description

This property is located at one of the higher areas of Rainbow Bay. The view of the Atlantic when it is 'raging' is spectacular. When you listen close, you can actually hear the Caribbean lapping the shore and the Atlantic waves as two distinct separate sounds. A 3 or 4 minute walk takes you to beautiful Rainbow Bay Beach on the Caribbean side.

Originally this was built as a getaway for my wife and I. But as we still must continue to work due to this crazy economy, we have opted to let others share this great place rather than just let it sit empty. This is a special place as you will see and as the 6' x 6' shower and the hand shower on the top deck are incredible, they do require you conserving as we only catch the rain at Sun Terrace as the island water system is not available in this area. The filter system is top of the line featuring a calcite carbon filter, sediment filter, fiber filter, and finally a UV light to purify the entire water system. This gives you all the pure ice you will need for your Coconut rums for the sunsets on the Top of the World!

Gorgeous open floor plan - top deck of 900 sq. ft. with 360 degree view of the Island. Some say 'It's like a view from an airplane!' Top floor has 1BR King, with sofa bed. Kitchen has stainless steel appliances and an Island sink/bar with granite top. Gaze out at the Atlantic surf or turn to the tranquil Caribbean as you enjoy your meals. The living room has 2 comfy couches and a chair to watch the cruise ship troll by or watch TV. When you get sleepy, the TV swings to view from the king memory foam bed or you may just gaze out to the Atlantic through the 9' glass doors beside the bed. There are also 2 screened porches to sit out on, one in the front Atlantic side as well as one in back with the Caribbean view. Downstairs 2BR, King memory foam and Queen pillow top. full staples stocked Kitchen, stacked washer dryer. Outside shower, inside 1/2 bath. Wooden Deck built around bedroom and living room. At present there is but one other house(rarely used) on the entire hilltop. So, if you want a private sun deck, you've got 900 square feet of it up top to suntan whatever or use the telescope at night to observe more stars than you ever saw before.

This is an ideal place for two people to enjoy but if you have an extra guest, the one couch can fold out into a queen bed with memory foam topper.

For larger groups, you can add the downstairs two-bedroom suite as well for an additional fee. The stairway between the upstairs and downstairs suites is an exterior stairway. As mentioned, if you don't need the downstairs apartment, we will leave it empty. We won't rent it to someone else.

Amenities include air conditioning, wifi via hot-spot, satellite TV, DVD player with video library, and an outdoor gas grill.

Car: Recommended

There are several top beaches within walking distance of Sun Terrace and dozens more private and incredible throughout the Island! Hatchet Bay caves give you over a mile of exploring just 5 miles up the Queen's Highway. Current Cut is the best drift dive or snorkel event you will ever find, all it costs is the drive to the North where you can shop the giant store ,'Birchey's' near the Bluff settlement, also in the North are the water taxis to Spanish Wells and the famous Harbor Island.

 

Manager info

Year Purchased: 2010

About: We built this great vacation getaway with the help of Scott Bartels, his crew, and several local Bahamian craftsmen. This is the same building system,SIPS, as the Colonial Elementary School(hurricane shelter) in Ft. Myers, Florida. You can feel safe as the hurricane of 2011(Cat 5 by local reports for 7 hours) had no impact on the house except for the neighbors asphalt shingles cutting up the screen enclosures. With the 3 9' sliders open, there is almost never a need for the AC upstairs. This place is so private you will almost never see another car yet alone a person. Daisy, the neighborhood K-9 will stop by if she smells something good. You will find her to be a most polite drifter as she makes her rounds in Rainbow Bay.

Why Rainbow Bay, Eleuthera, Bahamas:
Ideal for couples traveling together, that need their own space. Perfect for one couple to rent only the upstairs. Centrally located on Eleuthera.

The Unique Benefits at this House:
The flat roof offers privacy, We installed a shower up there if you need a little cooling off. We have chairs to take up with.Daytime views of the 2 bodies of water, outrageous night time views of the Stars!!
