About the Property

Gorgeous 6 bdrm home with heated pool/golf cart on canal in gated community

This elegant 6 bedroom/5 bathroom private home is nestled in the exclusive gated community of Old Fort Bay, serenely set on the western outskirts of Nassau. The crystal waters and powdery sands of some of the island’s finest beaches lie at your fingertips, while the international airport is less than 10 minutes away. Also nearby is a fine selection of dining options, a wine shop, the local grocery store, a spa where you can unwind after a long day in the sun and the immaculate oceanside Blue Shark Golf Course. The tastefully adorned kitchen has enough features to support a culinary team—a refrigerator, five-burner counter top stove, microwave with convection oven, AGA cooker, automatic dishwasher and garbage disposal.

There are 3 bedrooms upstairs, each with its own en-suite, including a spacious master bedroom with a private terrace where you can enjoy your morning coffee. The ground floor has two bedrooms and one shared bathroom. Detached from the house is a separate cottage above the garage featuring a full bed, daybed, a shower bathroom and a kitchen complete with an oven/stove and a fridge/freezer. All the bedrooms have comfortable mattresses, plush new pillows and soft white linens to help you feel at home. Enjoy your meals at any one for our three beautiful tables; the 8-seater indoor wooden dining room table, 6-seater table on the patio overlooking the pool or the 8-seater teak table under our new gazebo by the canal.

Guests of Sleepy Gull can also access the exclusive Old Fort Bay Club (*please note that a small daily fee does apply), which includes a pool and a gym, as well as a restaurant that opens opens for lunch and dinner.

If you’re looking for things to do, a quick drive in our golf cart (included) will take you to tennis courts, a basketball court, a playground and a small pond where you can feed fish and ducks. Feel free to use our paddle-boards in the canal if you're feeling adventurous! Please note there will be a welcome book included with many other things to do!

Owner info

Year Purchased: 2009

About the owner: I was born in Nassau and my husband is Jamaican. We now live in Montego Bay with our three children. We purchased Sleepy Gull in 2009 so that we could spend time in Nassau with my family and allow our children to experience the beauty of the Bahamas. We decided to open the doors of our home to guests when we are not in Nassau and we truly look forward to sharing our home with you. Please check out our other two properties, both of which are located in Montego Bay, Jamaica. Lazy Laguna, #504794, is a 4 bedroom home on the water. We have had this home listed with VRBO for a year now and have over thirty 5-star reviews. Playful Pelican, #762833, is our brand new listing. It is a 5 bedroom home and is also located on the water.

Why the Owner Chose Old Fort Bay, The Bahamas:
Sleepy Gull is the perfect spot for a family vacation. You can lounge comfortably by the pool or spend the day at the stunning Old Fort Bay beach club. Sleepy Gull is conveniently located close to the airport and restaurants. Myself and Jennifer - our property manager - are here to answer your questions and help you plan the perfect vacation!

The Unique Benefits at this House:
Heated pool, stand up paddle boards, golf cart, access to one of the most beautiful beaches in the world - Old Fort Bay, pre-stocking of the home before arrival, daily housekeeper, crib and other baby/kid items available, dock access, washer/dryer, automatic generator, separate cottage, baby safety pool-fence if needed, gated community, community tennis courts, playground, duck pond
