A Perfect Place to Experience Paradise

Our vacation to Eleuthera could not have been more perfect, thanks to the outstanding accomodations at Ocean Daze and the location on Windermere Island.
The house seems organically designed to fit in with the nature of Eleuthera. Frank Lloyd Wright would have felt at home there. Sitting atop a high limestone and sand dune ridge, it is hugged by native plantscapes with unobstructed vistas of the Atlantic Ocean 100 yards to the East and the Savannah Sound equidistant to the West. Inside and out, the house and property are impeccably clean, bountifully appointed, as cozy as any seaside retreat could be. There are large sliding glass doors facing the ocean and the sound allowing the beautiful wood and stone interior to meld seamlessly with the striking exterior, making this a prime example of organic architecture.
During our stay, breezes were the norm and the air in the home was fresh, clean and constantly flowing through the screened windows and doors.
The landscaping is award winning in its design maintaining the harmony with the native plant life and geology. Every window offers a view of beautiful trees and shrubs framing the turquoise waters of the Atlantic to the East and the Savannah Sound to the West. The outdoor living spaces are as inviting as the indoors, with private hammocks along a well designed solar lighted path down to the beach, a huge wrap around balcony with comfortable seating areas at every section, and a large open deck that extends directly out from the entire length of the east side of the house overlooking the Atlantic, inviting outdoor yoga in the day, or family stargazing at night. A well designed, winding path down to the beach invited evening or daytime meals and drinks at the ocean's edge on a private picnic table, or at a hammock station, on the path. A kayak, beach lounge chairs, and beach toys are stored on the private path to the beach for exploring the reef, coastline, or just relaxing on Windermere.
Anything we needed was at the house: four rider ready bikes with helmets, frozen squid for fishing, lovely soaps and shampoos, anything a chef would need to prepare meals indoors or out, and if there was anything we needed, the homeowner Miranda and her local Eleutheran associate Jackie, from nearby Tarpum Bay were happily available to answer any questions or assist us in making any plans. One is able to truly enjoy the beauty and serenity of Eleuthera at Ocean Daze on Windermere where it's very safe and secure.
