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 .

Adventure

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.

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.

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

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.

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. :-)

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.

Relaxation

  • 4 of 5
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!

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.

Everything we could have hoped for!

  • 5 of 5
We have nothing but good things to say about "Whatavue" and our time on Windermere/Eleuthera Island. The house was immaculate and beautifully furnished - comfortable beds, luxurious bathrooms, large central living space with a well-equipped kitchen. Lots of outdoor living space (although I will admit that the "no-see-ums" were a nuisance. Large pool and deck area for soaking up the sun. Beautiful view. And there were plenty of extras to help us enjoy our stay: games, movies, books, pool toys and everything we would need for the beach (chairs, towels, coolers).

The beach on Windermere was gorgeous and only a short walk from the house. We also took day trips to several other beaches on Eleuthera - all beautiful and very quiet. We found the people of Eleuthera to be friendly. There were plenty of grocery stores and no problem getting supplies, etc.

If you are looking for big resorts, fancy restaurants and lots of entertainment - this is probably not the place for you. But if you are looking for a quiet, peaceful, beautiful place to relax and explore - you've come to the right place!

Great place for a relaxing vacation

  • 5 of 5
The property is as described - lush, private and very comfortable. The sunsets are amazing and we had the beach to ourselves. We also had a great time, cooking, grilling and swimming in the pool. The island is incredibly safe, and by the end of our stay we generally left the house open when we were close by. One thing that should be noted is that there is an great fishing flat off the backside of the island (20 min walk or 5 min car ride -head north from the clubhouse and take the road on your right - best at high tide). Just looking for 30 min I saw a sizable permit and numerous small bonefish. The house itself has everything you need and is very luxurious. We only wish we could have stayed longer!

The owners are very attentive and helpful - one piece of advice is to spend up on a rental car. Ours, expensive by US rental car standards, but squealed anytime we accelerated! It had character.

Thank you for staying with us, those are all the same reasons we like the island. We are leaving in a few days to head back to our home, I always feel excited, knowing we are on the way. Can hardly wait to return. The weather at this time of the year is great, my bananas should be getting ripe.
Please come again,
