Space 2,000 sq. ft.
Property type house

About the property

The Bone house property consists of 5 house lots.  Three of the lots are connected ocean front lots, 270 feet in all..  The house sits on part of two beach front lots allowing an extra lot and a half to ensure privacy, to build an additional dwelling or to sell. The remaining two are back lots directly behind the house, providing views, protection from encroachment, along with the entry road, and an opportunity to build additional housing, storage or work space.  The property is located at the southwest end of the island on the unique part of Great Harbour Bay that allows year round home-front boat moorings.  In addition, Shark’s Creek is close by to use as a safe harbour for boats when hurricanes threaten.


Bone House is an architect-designed wood home anchored by telephone pole supports imbedded in bed rock and connected by oversized Canadian maple beams.  (The house plans are stored in the northwest corner of the loft.)  It is 40 ft by 40 ft under roof that includes a wrap-around under roof deck connected to an open to the sky deck on the south side of the house.  The inside living space is 30 ft by 30 ft is 2 ½ stories high and includes a carport.  A circular staircase runs from ground level through the main level to the loft. 

The ground level has two bedrooms with en suite baths, a storage room, a laundry room and a furnace/air closet. The second level consists of a kitchen (10 years old) living/dining space and a master bedroom and bath.  The loft level provides additional sleeping space, storage space and has a ½ bath making 3 and ½ baths in all.  Ocean views on the ground and second levels are through window walls of glass.  On the second level the window walls also extend to the south and west views.  The ten year old kitchen includes dishwasher, full electric range, induction cooker, garbage disposal, toaster oven, microwave and ample storage and cabinetry. The living room and bedrooms contain tv- two in the master bedroom. Wireless Internet and multiple phone outlets throughout. 

Excellent central heat/ac plant. RO independent water supply in separate pump house connected to year round well. Ample storage in loft, lower level of wall shelves next to washer, dryer, ironing board, and spare fridge. Carport for old jeep country sedan and golf carts on each side. inflatable hard bottom dinghy with 3 1/2. the 16 foot flatsboat with 90 hp Honda goes with sale but not rental. 

We have an excellent caretaker, available cleaning gal, and repair back up. Various boat, cycle, jeep rental available at the Marina- arguably one of the best protected boat sites in the Bahamas.

Rental/pricing data. Rental at $3500/week with two week minimum. Rentals are applied to the sale price of $1.2M.

Recreation: Friends of ours- old Cuban 'royalty', say they settled here as being the finest beach in the entire Caribbean. Beautiful white sand free of rocks and reefs so common on other noted Carib beaches. Bone fishing- the best- some located on the shore- and the Hawk's Nest area- a few minutes away by foot or dinghy- routinely has produced nice schools on the low rising tide. The adjoining Ambercris Cay area has the most extensive- and, arguably the best- bone fishing flats in the western hemisphere.

Our Joe Lee designed golf course is down to nine holes, for now, but memorable. Guys'gals meet every morning. Reef and blue water fishing in the area is excellent. Good snorkel and diving sites. As Bahamas websites note, there are many points of interest on or near the Island. The water is among the most navigable anywhere. Most shallow reefs are off observable points.

The Beach CLub is a 10 minute walk up the beach- for breakfast, lunch dinner, and a bar. Try the Angies Special for lunch with a Goombay Smaash. The Airport- with more options- is across the road from the Club. Other eating facilities include the Carrie Earle Boutique Hotel(gourmet), the Poolbar at the swimming pool (best ribs ever), and Coolie May's Bahamian Restaurant in the village at Bullocks Harbour.
