About the Property

Villa, 2 Bedrooms + Other (See Description), 2 Baths, (Sleeps 4-6)

Selah Vie (meaning to pause, rest and reflect on life) is a lovely beach villa located in Bahama Palm Shores. As the name suggests, our guests come to unwind, unplug and enjoy the natural beauty of the Abacos. Selah Vie is just 800 feet from the warm, protected turquoise waters of Eight Mile Bay down an easy path.

Selah Vie has 2 Master Bedrooms with ensuite baths, making it the perfect home away from home for a newlywed couple, 2 couples or a family. There is one king bed, and two twins which can be joined to form another king. There is a sleeper sofa in the living area, and a queen sized air matress for your use if needed. The kitchen is fully equipped and provides a great place to prepare breakfast, pack a lunch for a day of exploring, or grill up the day's fresh catch.

You'll love the beautiful gardens, the seclusion, the convenient access to a spectacular beach, and the homey comfort of Selah Vie. We invite you to enjoy our home, to pause, rest and reflect on life.

Owner info

Year Purchased: 2011

About the owner: Ray is a Geochemist and Dawn is the CFO of an organic dairy. We've been married since 2000, have two children, and are looking forward to gracefully coasting into retirement over the next 10-15 years.

Why the Owner Chose Cherokee Sound, Bahamas:
We traveled around the Bahamas numerous times between 2003 and 2010, and we made a special trip for our anniversary in 2011 specifically to look at different properties, but this one was not on our list. We spent the weekend looking at many properties, but none of them inspired us like 'Tree Tops'. That was the name of the property before we bought it. Perhaps the tipping point for both Dawn and I was the handwritten quote from Isaiah 41....'For I am the Lord your God, who takes hold of your right hand and says to you, Do not fear; I will help you.' We both noticed it as we were walking through the house, and it was one of the first things we commented on when we were alone and comparing notes. We went back home and immediately started the process of buying the home, and viola'......7 months later the property was ours. The previous owners were school teachers and since they were in the middle of the school year, they needed a place to stay. So we offered to rent the house to them until they were done with school, and this worked out fine for us as we were just getting comfortable with the idea of owning a vacation home so far away. We were gnawing at the bit to visit Selah Vie and to start putting our personal touch on things, and finally in July 2012 we got to stay in our home for the first time.

The Unique Benefits at this Villa:
This property spoke to us right from the start and we just felt comfortable immediately. The house is secluded and quiet, which is just what we were looking for. It is very near to the beach and the beach is just beautiful. The house was well-maintained and really just needed minor renovations/adjustments for us to feel at home. We're confident that you'll fall in love with Selah Vie just like we did, and we feel blessed to be able to offer this wonderful experience to anyone who wants to come and visit.
