Windermere Island Villa Rental Photos and Description

House, 2 Bedrooms + Convertible bed(s), 3 Baths,Sleeps 4

Please come and visit our Bahamas Vacation Villa Rental great for family ,friends and honeymoons.

Once you are past the Gate House you meander down a laneway of soaring Casurina Trees welcoming you to our waterfront Yellow Home on the hill. Situated on one acre of complete privacy facing Savannah Sound- No Neighbors with the most amazing views and incredible sunsets ever.

Complete natural vegetation of Palms and local trees add to the tropical flavour.We are presently planting bouganvillea around the villa to add additional colour to excite the sense of sight during daylight and night flowering Jasmine to give a subtle scent of love in the evening hours.

Just relax on the decks overlooking the pool and Savannah Sound throughout the day with a cool drink , soak up some sun while watching the colours of the water change in the different lights and tides or see some of the most spectacular sunsets ever.

Our Bahamas Vacation Rental Home is only a few hundred yards from what Jacques-Yves Cousteau called one of his two favorite beaches in the world, ours and another that is only accessible by boat.The roar of the waves can be heard while having your morning java , enjoying the heat of the morning sun on the front porch.

Great Room

The Great Room is home to the kitchen,living ,dining, and entertainment areas. The kitchen with granite tops and a nine foot island , ideal for eating for 6 or chatting with the host while preparing dinner for friends or family.The dining table comfortably seats 8. The living area includes an L shaped sofa with sea grass accents and two comfortable Grass and leather chairs perfect for visiting or playing games on our huge pine coffee table. We have another seating sofa to watch TV or as a pull out couch for those extra guests. All of this is under a spectacular twenty foot high beamed ceiling with island cypress and numerous fans. Every area of our Bahamas Vacation rental Property has the views of the Water and Sunsets as well as offering access to over a thousand square feet of covered porch in case of rain or to offer reprieve from the hot afternoon sun.

Master Bedroom

The Master with vaulted Ceilings and views of the waters of the Savannah offer an oasis for the weary. The California king size Tommy Bahama Bed with cotton bedding, flat screen TV make this an inviting retreat. The bathroom is just about as spacious as the bedroom with double sinks, huge walkin shower, jacuzzi tub,walkin closet and separate toilet room all with views as well .

The Master also walks out to its own covered patio for those quiet moments as well. The master has all the emenities for a quiet honeymoon retreat.

Guest Suite

The Guest Suite has a queen sized bed and beautiful cotton sheets as well with a direct view of the waters of the Savannah. The room also has direct access to another covered porch with teak seating for four. The ensuite bath has another huge shower and separate sink and toilet with lots of closet space adjoining.

Front Foyer

The entry has eight foot mahogany doors made on the island from a local craftsman including the high ceilings giving a feeling of spaciousness. Off the entry you will find we have a separate laundry room with energy efficient washer and dryer plus 2pc bath so your guests don't have to leave the living areas in search of privacy .


The reason my family chose the Island of Eleuthera was the water. You would be hard pressed to find the colours, clarity, beaches, anywhere else in the world . It is rare but not here ,to walk the beach and not see a sole. You won't have to get up at 5 am to place towels on a chair to get your place on the beach. No crowds just you and your loved one.The people are friendly and helpful.

Our island is a great place to snorkel with many areas with live coral along its five mile stretch. If fishing is your passion , the Savannah has some of the best bone fishing in the world. We can always arrange a guide.

Surfing can be done on island but if a 45 minute drive is not out of the question, Surfers Beach has world Class surfing. Check Youtube for some great videos of Surfers Beach.

We also have caves at the north end of Eleuthera to explore.

Diving can be had at Cape Eleuthera and Davis Harbour, as well as deep sea fishing and bottom fishing . On my last excursion with a few friends we caught a Yellowfin tuna and a few Daulphin. Mahi mahi is terrific that fresh . Eleuthera is my passion . Please come enjoy my passion, you will definitely want to stay.

About Patricia Armstrong or Gerry Armstrong

We sailed to the Exumas 26 Years Ago and fell in Love with the Bahamas and its Amazing waters. We got engaged here and have been coming back ever since with our Children and friends. We have travelled all over the world and chose Eleuthera for our second home - the Beaches and the Water here are the Best we have ever found- No Disappointments. We Love to Call it Home. It is Our Passion.

Patricia Armstrong or Gerry Armstrong purchased this villa in 2010

Why Patricia Armstrong or Gerry Armstrong chose Windermere Island

Windemere is an Island-a Gated Community with its Own Bridge and is Self Sufficient. It Has loads of Social Community Living at the Club , tennis courts , club dining plus complete privacy and solitude . We can feel safe knowing that our youngest even though he is a teenager can safely travel the island and visit his friends with the security at the gate. We are only 10-15 Minutes to Restaurants, Local Villages, Shopping, Amenities and Bahamian Lifestyle.You Can Have it All.

Guestbook comments from the owner

We recently stayed at Whatavue. We couldn't be more happy with our choice. The home was beautifully decorated,comfortable furniture and bedding... even the outdoor furniture is comfy.We enjoyed the pool and even had a guest each night...not sure what kind of bird... but it was quite noisy and entertaining.

Gerry was sucha wonderful host, he called to check on our arrival. He actually saved our trip. My husband ended up with severe back spasms and Gerry immediately responded to our email asking for advice on where to seek medical help.Thank you Gerry for that.

We would def return to this home and Eleuthera, such a tropical paradise ,both and island.

A Different, More Secluded Side of The Bahamas

  • 5 of 5

It just seems wrong to enjoy a ~3 mile stretch of premiere Bahamian pink sand beach all by yourself, but it's not... That's Windermere Island! Everything else, except the early arrival of the rainy season, was extraordinary. If you don't already know, island life is not that of suburbia. Running water, phone, internet, and electricity are a luxury. Appreciate them when they are working and don't cook when there's a storm coming. When you do lose utilities and just say "Iz the island man" in a Bahamian accent, “ebrything gonna be airey.” The property manager LaShanta was amazing, keeping us stocked and helping us stay comfortable. Patricia & Gerry Armstrong, too, are an email or text away to offer assistance or instructions. I was blown away by the extra amenities (kayaks, snorkel equipment, bikes, beach chairs, kitchen accessories, etc.) at this Villa, everything you could ask for on an island without paying a dime more. There was also an impressive collection of suggested beaches, caves, surfing, restaurants, and guided tours in the binder on the buffet. As for Eleuthera, it’s beaches were nothing short of amazing. Explore the island, rent an SUV, go off the beaten path, crack some coconuts and make some coconut ice cream. We'd love to go back. Our family of 6 had a superb time. Thanks again Gerry & Patricia!

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I had a wonderful vacation in Eleuthera and Whatavue was the perfect home for us. We were looking for relaxation but we also wanted to explore the many beaches of Eleuthera. Whatavue is a stunning home - we loved the décor - the beautiful pool - and the dock that takes you right out to the sound. The bikes and the kayaks were a total perk! Gerry was helpful and also very quick to get back with us on anything we needed. Windemere island has a gorgeous beach - and we had it to ourselves on most days. Great get a way for couples or families. We plan to return!!!

Owner's Response: Eleanor Thank you for kind response. You have found a lot of the reasons why we enjoy Eleuthera so much. When we first arrived, we thought what are we going to do for the next two weeks, and had then had trouble leaving the island to go home. We feel every time we come now, we are coming home, the islands beauty, the friendliness of the people, our friends. Eleuthera is not for everyone, but it looks like it grew on you as well. Please come again you were wonderful guests. Toes in the water. Pat and Gerry

Even Better the Second Time!!

  • 5 of 5

Returning for our second year to Eleuthera and Whatavue we spend 9 days in paradise. The house was perfect - just like we remembered it from the previous year. It truly feels like your returning home when you open the door. The house is immaculately maintained and stocked with everything we needed for a very enjoyable holiday. Windemere is truly one of the most beautiful, uncrowded beaches on earth. Pat & Gerry are very quick to respond to inquiries and answer any questions about the island or the house. We are already in the process of booking our third visit back to Whatavue. :-)

Owner's Response: Ed and Missy Thank you . We appreciate your comments and we look forward to another return visit next year. As we had discussed earlier , we installed the dock over the last 3 weeks after your departure. It will be an added attraction for our home, fishing right off the dock , spending some quiet time on the water and easy access for our kayaks. Glad you are coming back again next year. We will forward more photos of the finished product. Toes in the water. Pat and Gerry

Our stay at Whatavue was great. The house was very much as pictured and had all the amenities needed. Gerry was very responsive to all our questions before and during our stay. Great restaurant and map information and the private chef you recommended, Philip, from the Windemere Club was wonderful. Thank you for allowing us to stay in your home!

Spring Break

  • 5 of 5

Whatavue is a beautiful property with every amenity. The space feels much larger than the picture's and its a well maintained home. The pool is delightful and another highlight is the landscaping. It is gorgeous and you truly fell like you are in a tropical paradise.

The island is remote and I do recommend bringing extra food. We would have lunch at the club but my husband didn't bring his dress pants so were unable to eat dinner there. The club staff is wonderful and friendly and the children loved swimming in a different pool!

We brought our four children and we had a delightful time traveling back and forth from West Beach and the Atlantic and riding bikes.

We do recommend you wear bug spray when the sunrises and sunsets! Once we protected ourselves we were completely fine!

We definitely recommend this lovely home to anyone looking to stay on Windermere Island! It is truly special and Gerry (the owner) was easy and very helpful and quick to respond if we had questions!

Owner's Response: Becki Thank you for your kind comments. West beach is great, most people end up there while visiting the island. Hope to see you again. Toes in the water. Pat and Gerry

Relaxing Windermere beauty

  • 5 of 5

The property was clean and very private. Great views of the sound, easy access to the atlantic side as well. The owners were informative and a pleasure to work with. The main island of Eleuthera is an adventure in every positive aspect of the phrase, but it was nice to know as we crossed the gated bridge back to the property that we were entering a more serene environment. We enjoyed the pool immensely and the nearby Fishbone ecotour… catching a sea turtle was a thrill. I would not hesitate to recommend this property. Thanks again to Pat and Gerry.
