About the Property
3 Bedrooms, 5 Bathrooms, Sleeps up to 8 with beautiful Ocean Views!
KettleStone is a spectacular ocean-front Villa on the beautifully serene "family island" of Andros in The Bahamas. Nestled in the coastal canopy only minutes from amenities, it is the epitome of a secluded holiday home.
KettleStone is comprised of a central living area, CedarTop, which contains the open concept living and dining areas, central kitchen, and a radial stone staircase leads to a loft bedroom suite with bath, named Morgan's Loft after the infamous Captain Morgan, whose stories are an intrinsic part of this island's lore. CedarTop is complimented by two additional bedroom suites, CayView and Sunrise, each offering an amazing panoramic view of the ocean and large ensuite baths complete with double door shower.
KettleStone is equipped with all modern amenities, and has a fresh water swimming pool, waterfall and jetted spa in addition to steps going straight into the ocean lagoon or onto the newly constructed dock. Enjoy the warm soothing firelight from our outdoor fire-on-glass fireplace or mix your favorite beverage at the outdoor kitchen and bar.
Grill-masters can enjoy the palapa covered grill station complete with its own lighting system.
There are plenty of activities on the island, and on the property to satisfy everyone in a family or friends group. In addition to relaxing and soaking the sun, there is scuba diving, fishing (bone-fishing, reef fishing, and deep sea fishing), birding, blue hole explorations, snorkeling, swimming, and shopping. Comprised of one acre of mature landscaped grounds, KettleStone is the ideal place to unwind.
Begin your day with breath-taking sunrises from the terraces, or the private dock palapa!

The KettleStone Villa offers panoramic views and direct entry onto a sand bottom lagoon enhanced by a necklace of cays framing the Bahamas famed turquoise waters. Enjoy snorkeling, kayaking, wading and swimming right off the seaside terrace, or fish off our newly constructed dock. Miles of secluded beaches are very near the property.
Take one or more of our kayaks to the sugar sand beach on nearby Goat Cay minutes from the villa and enjoy a picnic while there, or snorkel the Andros Barrier Reef corals.
If you enjoy scuba diving or reef snorkeling, there is a professional dive center at a local resort only 3 miles from the villa. More experienced divers can enjoy the famous wall of the Tongue of the Ocean or even diving in one of our numerous Blue Holes.
Enjoy spending moonlit nights under the dock's authentic thatch palapa or engaging in intimate conversation seated in one of the several ocean-side terraces...the choice is yours to make.
Andros is abundant with miles of secluded public beaches minutes from the villa ideal for beach-combing, shelling and flats fishing. Fresh Creek is just around the corner from the villa and you can explore the creek and surrounding waters in a small skiff rented from Hank's place 5 blocks away from KettleStone.
Whether you choose organized eco-tours, bird-watching, guided bone fishing, reef or deep sea fishing there are qualified guides we can arrange for you. If an unstructured vacation is more to your liking ... simply explore the island and local settlements at your own pace. Travel is easy and the island is very friendly.
Be sure to visit the local Batik factory and outlet store to check out the hand dyed patterns that make Androsia the unofficial fabric of the Bahamas.
Year Purchased: 2004
About the owner: KettleStone was conceived, built and is owned by Michael Hornby ... formally of Gravenhurst, Ontario, Canada. Michael first discovered Andros Island in 1988 on a diving vacation and in 1997, in pursuit of his passion for scuba diving and a simpler lifestyle took the plunge literally and moved to the Bahamas. Michael currently lives on Andros Island and manages a local all-inclusive resort as well as owning and managing KettleStone. No stranger to the hospitality industry, in addition to being a Technical and Recreational Diving Instructor, Michael enjoys Blue Hole cave diving, deep wall diving and is a private pilot and boat captain. After 19 years of living on Andros, the love for the simplicity of the environment and the friendliness of local inhabitants continues to grow. Michael envisioned building a warm and welcoming luxury home that showcased the natural island beauty, and with a strict attention to detail it had to offer barefoot elegance that could be shared with others. With this vision in mind, Michael built KettleStone without compromise.
Why the Owner Chose North Andros, The Bahamas:
Situated on one acre … KettleStone land was chosen from years of local island research and a great stroke of opportunity which involved being offered the ideal virgin land from which to commence construction. Saving as much natural flora as possible was paramount, so carefully the land was hand cleared to preserve mature natural growth. Minutes from amenities, an international airport only a mere one hour flight from Florida and 5 minutes from a port of entry marina ... the location was ideal. A barrier island chain, shallow lagoon and sufficient elevation to provide a panoramic view and offer cooling breezes ... KettleStone had found its beginning.
The Unique Benefits at this Villa:
KettleStone was built with attention to detail. Named for the 'Kettle' formations at waters edge and expansive use of hand crafted local 'Stone' ... hand cut limestone ocean-side terraces and poolside patios enable you to take an ocean swim/snorkel to be followed by a dip in the freshwater pool or jetted spa and sun-bathe to the sound of the cascading waterfall. High vaulted open cedar ceilings and an open concept design gives KettleStone a sense of spaciousness and participation with nature. Panoramic views from each suite and the centrally located kitchen enable you to appreciate were you are at all times. Fully landscaped grounds, sheltered breezeways and back patio enable you to enjoy nature front and back. The spectacular sunrises have to be seen to be believed. Welcome to KettleStone!
