Enjoy this gorgeous, elegant home with stunning views and glass wall overlooking the ocean, just back on the market after renovation! Relax in the balmy breezes as you take in the 180-degree ocean views through breezy floor-to-ceiling windows the length of the ocean-facing side (brand new hurricane windows). Start the morning with coffee and a papaya from your own trees, watching sailboats from the balcony overlooking Buck and Capella Islands and Green Cay. This lovely, light, and airy and beautifully furnished 3-bedroom / 2 bath is appropriate for 1-3 couples and is a 5-minute drive (or a hilly run ;-) from three palm-studded beaches, one with hammocks. You can walk to the beach if you are determined, but you may want to stage a car there (a car is required; it is far above the hustle and bustle of the safari route). With cool-to-the-feet travertine marble throughout, the house has a jacuzzi tub, brand new stainless steel appliances, an outside washer/dryer where you can enjoy the fresh air even while doing laundry, and super high-speed free wifi. There is AC in all the rooms, which you may opt not to use because of the lovely breeze we get being up high on the island.
Bedroom 1: The light and airy master bedroom has an ensuite bath, and both these rooms get a flood of golden sunlight in the late afternoon (you’ll think you left the lights on ;-). The queen-size platform bed has a memory mattress with patented cool gel technology. There is an ocean view from the middle of the room; with most of the trees gone in hurricane Irma (they’re being replaced!) you also have a view of the closest neighbor, which you can close out with the touch-lift blinds.
Bedroom 2: This elegant center bedroom remains cool and dim all day and has deep floor-length curtains, perfect for those who like to sleep in or take naps on vacation. The queen-size platform bed has a memory mattress with patented cool gel technology.
Bedroom 3 is the front room, which has a whitewashed Munich oak platform bed, with the same memory foam CoolGel mattress as the others. This bedroom has 2 double windows and enjoys sunlight and balmy breezes and a sliver of an ocean view past the front porch. It shares a bath with the middle room.
Located in a private villa on a private drive, in a secluded area with driveway parking; there is sometimes a tenant in a downstairs 2-bedroom apartment, available to answer questions or help out. Your nice quiet pet is welcome to visit with you, too.
You will have the main house and driveway.
There are two beaches a 5 minute drive from the house. Bolongo Bay is dog-friendly and has hammocks strung between palm trees, along with two restaurants. Bluebeard's Beach Resort has a life-sized chess board and a pool bar along with a charming small beach and rocky area to climb about and explore.
Abi beach has an outdoor bar, Hamptons-style lounges, volleyball, and various games.
A car or taxi arrangement is required, as the house is not on the major "safari bus route". There is driveway parking, and a soft-top classic Jeep Wrangler may be available for rent. There are also taxi services on the island.
