Property description

Zephyr Hill is a 3 story, tropical beach house, situated on Rose Island, The Bahamas, and stands on a small hill about 50 feet above sea level. As the name implies, it catches the gentle sea breezes and sitting on one of the spacious balconies with a cool breeze, listening to the sea lapping against the shore, is the very definition of relaxation.
Rose Island is only 6 miles, or 20 minutes by boat, from Nassau, the capital city of The Bahamas. Never-the-less, it is a remote island, and Zephyr Hill relies on solar energy, and rainwater that is held in tanks under the house. Both of these systems work well, but in case of a lack of solar power, there is also a backup generator. Both cell phones and data connections work well, but must use a local SIM card.
Zephyr Hill is not just about relaxation as there is plenty to do while you are there. The property comes with a two man kayak which is perfect for explorations up the 11 mile shoreline of Rose Island. There is also a small rubber dingy with motor. The waters around Rose Island are crystal clear and it is not uncommon to see turtles, dolphin, and any number of colorful fish. The bird life is also abundant with a nesting pair of Ospreys living close to the house. Other birds which frequent the area include White Crown Pigeons, Bahama Ducks, Whistling Ducks, Coot, Moorhens, American Kestrels, Kingfishers, and many others.
Fishing, diving, spearfishing, or just relaxing on a deserted beach are all excellent, with several locations to choose from. For the more distant reaches of the area, there is a golf cart that comes with the house.
The house has 3 bedrooms, 2 of which have en suite bathrooms with showers. The third bedroom has a bathroom, but no shower. The rooms are airy with plenty of windows to allow the breeze in. Each bedroom has its own fan. The kitchen is fully equipped with an excellent fridge/freezer, coffee makers, toaster oven, microwave, gas stove top, dish washer, and all the dishes and cooking implements that you would expect. Outside, there is a gas barbecue.
The living room/kitchen is open plan with comfortable seating and doors that open wide to allow the air to circulate. There is a small entertainment center which is popular in the evenings or on a rainy day, as well as a small library of books.
Zephyr Hill has much more than what we can describe here and is an excellent place to enjoy the tropical beauty of The Bahamas.
