Relax in total privacy on a pristine gorgeous beach. Ocean front family home and separate guest house/art studio directly overlook 165 feet of pink sand beach with gentle clear turquoise sea (protected by coral reef off for kids & swimming.) Coral powder-soft sand is cool to walk on at all times and there is 5 miles of beach to stroll. Very private location (rarely see neighbors). Windermere Island is a secure gated island community just over tiny bridge from main island of Eleuthera. The property extends from the Atlantic to the Caribbean side. Bone fishing and snorkeling are at your doorstep.
The architect-designed 'Ho-Hum' house is filled with sunshine and views tucked away amidst the beautiful Bahamian landscape. There are two spacious bedrooms in the main house. The master has a king bed, office nook and private gated garden off master bath with outdoor shower. The 2nd bedroom has 2 twin beds (easily convertible to king). Both bedrooms have en-suite full baths and private outdoor showers and patios. Bedrooms book-end a large high-ceilinged living room with dining area, full kitchen and gorgeous large sunroom/breezeway with large dining table and sitting area (with a good quality comfortable futon for kids or extra sleepers). The entire house has a wrap-around ocean view patio for sunbathing and outdoor dining. There's also a full sized futon in the breezeway glass room which can sleep a 7th guest.
A separate guest house/art studio, also overlooking the ocean, is just 100ft from main house. It has 2 twin beds (easily convertible to king) and a small/child-size bed nook. Guest house has kitchenette, full small bath and it's own ocean view patio and outdoor shower. There is also a large island with an extra artist's sink and huge wide counter space for artwork projects (some easels available too). Views of the beach and sea are every where!
