Overview

About the property

4 BR/4Bath custom home just steps to the most spectacular beach on the Island

This custom 4BR/4Bth villa located in the private and guard-gated community of Old Fort Bay was meticulously crafted to capture the essence of classic island life and to provide a carefree escape. With two verandas sweeping across the entire front of the house and direct access through French doors off of the bedrooms, guests are afforded ample opportunity to relax outdoors on a lounge chair to read a book, share a coffee or a glass of wine, or take a nap in the soothing island air under shade and comfort. Inside luxury bekons with fully appointed bedrooms, each with an en-suite bath. Hotel quality mattresses, pillows, and linens, hand showers, dual showerheads, a clawfoot tub, and televisions in every room make it easy to feel at home here. Two separate master bedrooms allow multiple couples to stay in comfort without anyone sacrificing amenities. Two other secondary bedrooms have either a queen bed or two full beds to accommodate many sleeping arrangements. An upstairs bonus room can also serve as added space for children or younger adults. In addition to the en-suite baths, there are two additional powder baths downstairs. The home is also equipped with a fully wired sound system to access your own music library via an ipod or to use the music provided through the SONOS system. If you like to exercise on vacation, the upstairs bonus room is equipped with yoga mats and exercise balls to help make it easier.

Once you decide to venture out, you won't need to go far to be at one of the most desirable beaches in the Bahamas. Just steps away from the villa is the beach at Old Fort Bay. This postcard-ready beach can be privately accessed through the private Old Fort Bay Club. Access to this exceptional private club can be made available especially to rental guests at Caspary during their stay via daily passes allowing use of the beach club, the pool, restaurant, and gym and day spa facilities. As an added bonus, given the proximity of the Villa to the Club, 'room-service' type dining is available. You can simply order your dinner or lunch and have it delivered directly to your door at the Villa and enjoy a secluded evening at home without having to fuss in the kitchen.

If you are interested in getting full use out of the kitchen, you will find it well-appointed to accommodate almost any task. A 6-burner Viking gas stove and exhaust fan are provided (very unusual to find on the island) for the most sophisticated chefs. Also in the kitchen are: a warmer drawer, a wine fridge, an ice-maker, a built-in under counter microwave, and plenty of cookware and specialty utensils and appliances. You can choose to sit at the breakfast counter which comfortably seats 4, step out onto the veranda dining table, or have a full dinner at the dining table which seats 10 comfortably.

We recommend renting a car while you're here to get out and about around this incredible island that has so much to offer. Restaurants, shopping, and island resorts (The Atlantis) are all within 15 to 30 minute drives from the community. However, this home is ideal for the vacationer or family who wants to spend much of their time living like a local and getting the feel for the Bahamian way of life while enjoying the quiet, simple life of Old Fort Bay. It is a pleasure that is hard to come by in this busy world of ours and this property makes that possible!

This property is ideal for celebrities and others who desire seclusion, security, and privacy in a comfortable and beautiful setting. Being able to access the Club right next door is the biggest benefit of being away from it all, but having everything you need right at your fingertips. It is a tucked away gem well-known to the locals, but a nice secret from the rest of the world. When you utilize our housekeeping and/or babysitting options, your stay becomes the ultimate in convenience. You will not be disappointed with your stay at Caspary as you return home relaxed, rested, and peaceful. We look forward to making your vacation a wonderful and memorable experience.

About Kris

We live in Southern California and have been coming to the Bahamas for over 20 years. In 2007, we decided to build a property that we could use and enjoy as our 4 children grow up. We hope to ultimately make the Bahamas our home, but for now we love to share Caspary with those guests who appreciate the freedom and ease of the Bahamian culture and understand the different level of experience you can have while vacationing in the way a local would.

Kris purchased this house in 2006

Why Kris chose Nassau

We built this property to be a home away from home. From the hand-worn wood floors to the marble counters, everything was personally selected by us to make this home as relaxing and comfortable as possible. This home is elegant, easy to live in, and brings together the special lifestyle of Old Fort Bay in a convenient, classically designed home that makes you want to stay for good! Sitting on the upstairs veranda in the shadow of the silk cotton tree, you feel like you are transported to a simpler and easier time where life slows down and so do you! For us, there is no other place on earth that causes this level of relaxation and ease. We know you'll enjoy being here as much as we do.

What makes this house unique

The setting is peaceful, beautiful, and easy with greenery all around the home and the beach just a few steps away past the club. There is almost no reason to leave the property, but when you do, the charm of New Providence comes to life. Downtown Nassau is special and exciting with all the hubbub you might expect of an island tourist town. But there are so many little special gems to visit between Old Fort Bay and downtown, you will be amazed and delighted! This is a way to spend time getting to know this island and understand why people move here for a lifetime!

Pristine vacation home in idilic, gated community of Old Fort Bay, Bahamas

  • 5 of 5

This custom-built house in Old Fort Bay, Bahamas is pristinely kept and an ideal getaway for anyone seeking a beautiful beach holiday with the amazing comforts of a 5-star hotel. Every bedroom is immaculate with frette linens, marble bathrooms and dark stained hard wood floors. The kitchen is state of the art and the third floor boasts an additional bedroom (for 4) with a private yoga space. The living room and entry are large with a big front porch to sit and enjoy the weather. A few steps to the main clubhouse and beach, it could not be a better location! You are minutes (by car) from the major grocery store and shops, the airport and other resorts. The gated community offers peace and quiet with the perks of a fun Bahamian clubhouse and absolutely stunning beach and crystal blue water. House was well equipped with towels, linens, beach towels and flat screens tvs throughout. An absolute find, this was a fantastic spot and perfect for families, groups of adults or a girls trip.

Perfect getaway vacation in a tranquil and beautiful environment

  • 5 of 5

I cannot say enough wonderful things about this beautiful home and the Old Fort Bay community.

Old Fort Bay is, at most, a five minute drive from the airport. But don't let that be a deterrent! Not once on our week long vacation did we hear a plane or see one fly directly overhead. You would never know the airport was that close. The community is also just a few minutes from a major grocery store and other shops as well as some very good restaurants. Depending on traffic, the drive to downtown Nassau or Paradise Island is about 45 minutes and we found New Providence to be very easy to navigate (we went to Atlantis one day and went on a sailboat/snorkeling adventure another day). We enjoy renting a car on our vacations so highly recommend doing so for anyone who prefers having their own transportation.

The house is a 30 second walk to Old Fort Bay Beach Club where you can swim in the pool, relax on the beach, use the gym or take a yoga class, or have lunch or dinner. The food is excellent. In fact, as long as you don't mind just relaxing and soaking up some sun there is absolutely no reason to leave the neighborhood. The Club is full service so you never have to leave your beach chair to get lunch or a drink. They also provide paddle boards, body boards, and kayaks which we used everyday.

And the house itself is absolutely beautiful! The bedrooms and bathrooms are spacious and the main living area and kitchen are large and comfortable. We also spent a lot of time on the front porch. It was very tranquil and quiet. The owners are extremely responsive and helpful and truly care about the experience of their guests. I really can't think of one negative thing to say about the house.

Our group had 6 adults and two kids, ages 9 and 7 and we all had a wonderful time. The house and the area in general was perfect for our group. I would absolutely recommend this to families or anyone just looking to relax and enjoy the gorgeous beaches and water of the Bahamas.

Private and secure location within a beautiful gated community

  • 5 of 5

We stayed here with our 3 children ages 8,13 and 15. The owners were incredible to work with. They responded quickly and were very specific with important details. The House had a shower outside to rinse off after spending time at the beach, beach towels were provided and all appliances were new. Be sure to bring your own shampoo,soap and lotions. But, if you forget a grocery store is located 5 mins away. The location of the house is conveniently located next to the Old Fort Bay club where you will find the swim pool, beach, beach snack bar and dining room and bar(dining is not available on Mondays). Meals were delicious at the club and the staff of the club was charming and attentive.

Elegant Bahamian Vacation Home

  • 5 of 5

Our family had the pleasure and good fortune to stay for 3 months at Calvert House. Tucked away in a lush lot near the Old Fort Bay Club, the house enjoys privacy and tranquility within easy reach of resort amenities. Our family enjoyed walking (my children barefoot) from the house to the tranquil and beautiful pool and the stunning Old Fort Bay beach. We often ate at the Club restaurant, widely considered one of the best on the island.

The house is finished with the highest quality materials. The four full baths are clad in beautiful marble tile and premium fixtures. The decadent master bath has a beautiful claw-foot tub and dual head shower. The kitchen is both functional and beautiful, making meal preparation a pleasure. Of particular note is the expansive kitchen island, which is covered with a stunning slab of blue-veined marble. The furnishings are elegant and understated, making it an excellent home for entertaining. Hotel-style bedding and towels add the perfect finishing touch to a comfortable and gracious vacation home.

Be sure to make time to relax on the deep front porches. Our family enjoyed meals, coffee and cocktails and quiet reading time there. The image of the porches lit at night is one that stands out among many wonderful memories of time at Calvert House.

Exclusive Bahamian Getaway

  • 5 of 5

Caspary is a beautiful property, all the comforts of home, with all the amenities. Located steps from the Club and a private pristine beach, with powdery soft sand and crystal clear water, you'll never want to leave ( I know we didn't want to). The property is very children friendly and safe. The Staff provide excellent service at the Club and Beach and will be your best friends the moment you meet them, very attentive and willing to help with anything you need.

Beware the "Rum Dums" and "Bahama Mama's", they taste great but have a kick!

Fine "local cuisine" dining is available at the club restaurant and they have to have one of the best Sunday Brunches on the island, with a view of the ocean.

You won't be disappointed!

Our property is located in beautiful Old Fort Bay, a private gated community surrounded by canals and beachfront. Caspary is a luxurious custom home with over 4000 sq. ft. that has all of the modern comforts in a classic Caribbean setting. Arguably the most beautiful beach on New Providence Island, Old Fort Bay beach is just steps away, making this setting ideal for those who want to relax and not have to plan every outing. We can arrange access to the private club of Old Fort Bay so that guests may enjoy this world-class beach, pool, exercise and spa facilities, and the incredible local cuisine. Given the proximity of the club to Caspary, you are able to order the exceptional food from the Club as room-service delivered right to your door. The community is conveniently located close to the airport and there are many local grocery stores, restaurants, and marinas to make your stay easy and enjoyable. Downtown Nassau is a 30 minute drive with many great local attractions on the way. It's really the best of everything to have a secluded hideaway just steps to the beach so you don't waste precious vacation time packing up to go to and from the beach or the Club. Once you do decide to venture out, you'll be pleased with how easy it is to get around the area and how many quality restaurants there are nearby. There is also a park and a tennis court in the community. The park is especially welcome if you are traveling with children who need a quick play break in the evening after being at the beach all day.
