OK, so just one of us is a bit pool crazy: That's Judd. Check out his view: see the White Cliff's in the background? Just about the spot that Columbus viewed on his second landing in the New World in Oct 1492.
Dale and I are from Chicago, did our business there and retired to this PERFECT spot 23 years ago.
AIN'T life GRAND !!!!!!!!!
We (Dale and I) met at College and eventually after Judd's short career in engineering, and Dale's in primary education, joined together to own the 4th generation family business. Business was FUN: but living here in The wonderful, healthy, fun Bahamas is 'MUCH MORE BETTER.'
The Bahamas was a PERFECT place for our growing family, during vacations for them, and eventually for their spouses and our grandchildren.
Judd is a private pilot and has taken Dale and the family, and many friends to other islands of The Bahamas. BUT Long Island is the BEST. The people of this island have made our many vacations into our HOME.
This place (our White Cliff Estate) has grown and has NOW allows us to sit back and enjoy our boat and all our adventures.
Manager/Owner purchased this estate in 1989
The White Cliff Estate wasn't our first venture here on Long Island. First, we came visiting; a short vacation rental visit, just like you are thinking about. Then after seeing this breathtaking view, and this amazing house designed, we learned later, by internationally renowned architect Ray James Holman Nathaniel (Go ahead look him up. His work was just taken into the collection at the Royal Institute of British Architects: and a talk was given about his work titled: 'under Closer Look talk: Caribbean Homes by Ray Nathaniels') we purchased it ALL. Who knew.
It was said that he hand-picked this site and sat on it for days until the design was finished.
We fell in love with the property 23 years ago. A few years ago we wanted an up-date and called Ray Nathaniel and asked how he thought we would best bring it up to the Newest Standards of materials and design. 2 1/2 years later (BAM !! ) we have our re-invented property.
Something very special about its location was important to us, and that is the constant soft Ocean Long Island breeze that allows for a cool BUG FREE climate and everyday pleasant living.
The benefits of his design gives shade inside the house while allowing wide expansive views of the pool, Ocean, gardens; great sunrises and sunsets. Mostly is the FUN FUN entertaining on all the decks, the outdoor living, while surrounded by tall garden walls, allowing secure privacy.
3 Zone air-conditioning, while useful at times, is not always needed as open giant Pella doors brings the Bahamas breeze circulating fresh clean tropical air - a breath of Tropical Paradise.
We have spent our time here assisting and sharing our time in another country. Many don't have that opportunity. Judd was appointed to serve on the Board of the Antiquities, Monuments, and Museum Corporation, the national government corporation responsible of the safety and research of National Cultural Heritage. (By the way, PLEASE go see the Long Island Museum in Buckleys. It's very current and Fun.) and ..............
Dale serves on the Ladies Friendship Club, the group that built and runs the Senior Recreational Centre in Grays (Take the time to visit.)
ENJOY your time on Long Island, our nice property, and: COME BACK at least once a week.
Thank you Judd and Dale for sharing your Island home with us everything was perfect. Our boys particularly enjoyed the surf and snorkeling on the Atlantic side and the Wifi at your home a good balance of disconnect for them.We were taken by the people that live here, there is a contentment with them that is so genuine it seems spiritual. Omar came to help us with our car and I wanted to give him something for his effort, (he had come out of his way with his whole family to help) and he said "no way don't live that way here, we just help each other, enjoy your stay".... It was like that everywhere, this is a very special place. There is a fresh frozen meal of Mahi Mahi in the freezer for who ever comes next. Much Love, The Wendells
Our visit to White Cliffs was so much fun!! The home itself is gorgeous and add to that the private pool, the breezes at 100 feet up which kept all the bugs away, and the ease of getting to private, beautiful island beaches created a perfect stay. We found the location to give us just enough solitude, but still be close to restaurants, fishing, and other amenities.
My family and I LOVED our time on Long Island. We have been to many of the islands in the Bahamas and we all decided that Long Island is our favorite!
The house and property are absolutely beautiful! It is located at one of the highest elevations on the island, so you can see the Caribbean and the Atlantic from the spacious patio vistas. The kitchen is very high-end and elegant. The bedrooms were all large and private. The master suite is to die for! We all loved having the pool right off of the patio. When we weren't exploring the island and swimming at the picture-perfect beaches, we would lounge around and in the pool.
We plan to return to Long Island this year and we are going to stay at White Cliff again! The house is gorgeous, immaculate and has every amenity you could want. Stay at White Cliff and experience paradise!
This Stella Maris area is a resort community with a hotel, club house, restaurants, bars, marina and also a residential community. The Stella Maris International Airport is just a 5 minute drive away.
