Property description

Rainbow house,Stella Maris,long island,Bahamas.

Situated a few miles south from where Columbus stepped ashore onto the long island silver sand beach remarking this 'was the most beautiful island in the world' sits rainbow house, one of the most spectacular houses in the Caribbean.
Crossed by the tropic of cancer, long island has the gulf stream warming the ocean in winter and trade winds cooling its shores in summer to create the perfect climate. Long island is an undiscovered gem, unblemished by skyscraper hotels and mass tourism, yet has all the amenities and adventure for a fantastic family or couples vacation.

Rainbow house, just a few minutes from the Stella Maris airstrip, quite simply, has one of the most breathtaking views of the Atlantic's infinite horizon you will ever see. You wake up to that view from every room in the house. And fall asleep every night to the soothing lull of crashing waves. It is a private ocean front villa located in a tranquil setting surrounded by gracefully sweeping palm trees and the colorful brilliance of tropical flowers.

Rainbow house has super spacious living accommodation...Elegant large bedrooms and living areas with awe inspiring views overlooking the 1200 sq ft infinity pool, a gazebo and the dramatic breaking surf of the Atlantic..All set within lush landscaping.

Fully equipped with luxury amenities inside the house, outside lounge chairs and table, the house has been routinely upgraded and renovated, has split unit air conditioning, sliding french doors and luxury fittings everywhere you look.

A marine paradise with no traffic and incredible diving, including the deepest free dive site in the world.
