About Miranda Andrews

My husband and I spent five years designing and building our dream island home, Ocean Daze. It is our lives ambition realized!

This totally unique, multi-million dollar home, sits on top of a 22 ft elevation, boasting panoramic views of the sparkling, crystal clear Atlantic Ocean in the back garden, and the lush, calm waters of Savannah Sound, with world renowned Bone Fishing flats in the front garden.

Miranda Andrews purchased this house in 2008

Why Miranda Andrews chose Windermere Island

We discovered Eleuthera about ten years ago. We had no idea that anything like this existed and just a one hour flight from the US. It is a totally unspoiled, uncommercialized island and it was 'love at first sight'. There are rolling hills, and lush tropical foliage throughout the island which is surrounded by the most incredibly beautiful, crystal clear, azure waters of the Atlantic Ocean. Historic settlements and friendly locals add to the flavor of this truly unique island experience.

What makes this house unique

Windermere Island is a totally private, exclusive island. We have a security guard 24/7 to ensure that you are totally safe and will remain undisturbed throughout your time at Ocean Daze island retreat! Definitely something that our high profile celebrity and royal guests appreciate. The powder fine, pink sand beach is literally in our back garden. Beyond this is the crystal clear, azure waters of the Atlantic Ocean. We even have our own reef to the north side of our property. Spend your time relaxing on the beach in your own back garden, where the only footprints you see, will probably be your own. You can also explore the front garden, Savannah Sound, with it's world class Bone Fishing flats. Make our 'slice of paradise' your 'island home, away from home'. Come and enjoy this gorgeous, spacious, multi-million dollar home and make it your island retreat!

Guestbook comments from the manager

Ocean Daze is a custom-built luxury private family retreat providing an environment that builds families memories based on the tranquility and purity of the authentic Bahamian island culture. Ocean Daze is located on a pristine white/pink sand beach on the Atlantic ocean, nestled in the private island enclave of Windermere that has a unique blend of casual living with the benefits of exclusivity. The Andrews family goes to great lengths to share their family retreat with guests of Ocean Daze. They also coordinate all of the necessary island family services, including fishing charters, boat and car rentals. And a very good restaurant review. Your stay at Ocean Daze will make you feel like a part of the Andrews and the Island family. If you want a truly extra-ordinary vacation experience, that gives you all the benefits of ownership with none of the responsibility, this is the place. We highly recommend the multi-week, highly discounted opportunities. "Experience The Daze of Ocean Daze".

Stay in paradise!

  • 5 of 5
We loved Ocean Daze! It is a beautiful house with wonderful views of both the Atlantic Ocean and the Sound. The water is gentle as safe for kids to swim in. We did not see another person on the beach all week. Miranda's support in the trip makes everything go extremely easily. We highly recommend using Jackie to cook several meals and deliver them to the house - delicious! We are definitely coming back!

Best Beach House!

  • 5 of 5
I read a few of the reviews before we booked our stay at Ocean Daze & now having been there, I cannot agree more with the excellent reviews posted for this property. My wife & I love the islands, but had never visited Eleuthera before. We spent the best time on this island & at Ocean Daze that you could ever ask for...The setting & the scenery was perfect. The private pink sand beach, blue water & breezes from your back yard is spectacular. We spent allot of time in the terrace experiencing beach living at it's best. We also spent time exploring & got to interact with the local residents. They are very pleasant & helpful everywhere we went on this island, we even gave rides to a few hitch-hikers, which we would never do back home...The owners John & Miranda are top notch, they are gracious hosts & they are more than willing to answer any of the questions that we had before & even during our visit. They provided everything that we needed to make our stay a perfect one & gave us really good perspective on what to do on their island...For example, we asked which restaurant to visit for each of the days that we were there. We love good sea food, & I am letting everyone know that this island has great restaurants with amazing food. Eleuthera is the perfect get-a-way & Ocean Daze is the perfect beach house.

We truly had a blast & hope to return soon!
Thank You John & Miranda.

Chillaxed at Ocean Daze

  • 5 of 5
One week back from our stay at Ocean Daze and we're already longing to return. The house is so very perfect; situated with the most gorgeous sunrise views over the Atlantic and sunset views over the sound. The breezes were awesome during our time there. Every morning it was omelets, bloody marys and amazing beach strolls. We kayaked and fished in the sound and caught some small mangrove snapper for lunch. We timed it right in Tarpum Bay and bought lobsters right off the boat. We then caught Mr. Belly at his conch salad stand and he whipped up a great conch salad. Friday night we joined the fish fry in Governors Harbour and had a blast. It's not just fish(chicken, pork chops) and you have to have a rum bubba(or two). For a great lunch try to find the Blue Room and have their conch burgers, just be patient as everything is made from scratch and you are on island time of course. At night, look for the land crabs...they're a blast to spot. The star gazing is amazing too with no light pollution at all. We could easily discern the Milky Way and saw many shooting stars and satellites. Winding Bay is a great place to snorkel, particularly if the beach is too choppy. Weaving back to Winding Bay there are a couple pulloffs where we saw good spots for bonefishing....and we did see bonefish; I just didn't have my flyrod with me(cardinal sin in Eleuthera). All the people we met were so helpful, giving us directions or ideas where to eat. It's a great place to really unplug from the rat race. We so look forward to our next time here.

Amazing location and house!

  • 5 of 5
We had never been to Eluethera, so we were a bit uncertain of what to expect from the Island, and Ocean Daze. The webiste for the home looked almost too good to be true. But, its as advertised! PERFECT location and design. The beach is as the photos depict- crystal clear water, soft sand, and private. I mean REALLY private! if you see 2-3 people in a day, its a lot. The house is right on the beach. It has gorgeous views to the East( Atlantic) and the West, for great sunsets. The kitchen is large and overlooks an ample living/ great room. The house is in fantastic condition. The AC is great, the appliances are top of the line, etc. Windermere Island is VERY safe , with a gated entry accesible only via a bridge. The property was clean and well maintained. The grounds are immaculate. There is plenty of outside space under roof. We found that the house and property were exactly as the photos depict. While there are many activities on Eluethera, we found it very hard to leave the property. That beach is simply too tempting, and relaxing! We went in to Governors Harbour once and its very charming. We ate at the Beach House and it was idyllic. But right after our meal we hurried back to Ocean Daze to relax from a " hectic" day in town! The locals are all so incredibly nice and kind. Everyone makes you feel welcome, and they are happy that you are visiting. And finally, the owners are AMAZING. They sent us a lot of info on restaurants, activities, and things to do. Miranda answered my many questions with patience and good cheer. They really make you feel not only excited about your vacation but that you are part of the " Ocean Daze family". We arranged for some groceries to be bought for us and they were wating upon our arrival. The local caretaker was very helpful and always available if needed. We absolutely and without hesitation reccomend Ocean Daze to anyone. I cannot think of a better site for R&R and beach. Its an 11 out of 10!

First Rate - Blue Ribbon Vacation Get-a-Way

  • 5 of 5
Ocean Daze is a magnificent, peaceful, beautiful slice of paradise. It is not a resort with people everywhere - No waterslides, No loud music, No fighting for a deck chair. Something much better - long walks along the beach, dragging your toes in the soft pink sand and finding treasures along the way - driftwood, a bird sighting, an amazing sky filled with stars. That's what I experienced when visiting Ocean Daze. It renewed my spirit. I returned with a fresh perspective on life.

Ocean Daze is right on the water. Wake up - walk onto the patio that surrounds the house, carry your cup of coffee (or tea) down the stairs catching the gorgeous view at every step - feel the sand between your toes - then dip them in crystal clear water. It's amazing.

I enjoyed this every day - and the star gazing every night.

I loved my stay at Ocean Daze!

Escape to Paradise

  • 5 of 5
Ocean Daze was everything we had expected it to be from the listing, and more. Our family felt very comfortable in this beautiful clean and spacious home. My favorite thing to do was to lounge on the patio and watch the ocean change colors. I liked that I was able to watch my teen enjoying the ocean, while I read a book at the house. We also enjoyed walking on the gorgeous vast expanse of beach collecting shells etc washed up on the shore. Tippy's was our favorite restaurant on the ocean - the food was delicious and the island feel was so relaxing. I will highly recommend this piece of paradise to my friends and family, it is a place to go for rejuvenation for sure.
