Where else will you find a beautifully furnished villa, tropical style, in a spectacular and secluded location, with panoramic ocean views from a private patio, in a wonderful garden of hundreds of
palm trees and tropical flowers, and close to several beaches- for such a low price?
Lookout Villa is over 1100 sq feet, not including two outdoor patios, one of 500 sq ft overlooking the ocean and another of 200 sq ft for sunset barbecues where you can grill your fresh fish or crawfish.
The villa's interior has high, vaulted wooden ceilings and ceiling fans, is fully air- conditioned and faces the ocean, except for the kitchen and bathroom, which look out onto a wonderful garden full of native vegetation and flowers. Lots of windows,mirrors and sliding glass doors display the ocean’s beauty.
The villa has 2 lovely bedrooms both facing the sea plus an unusually large bathroom. The rest of the house has an open plan feel,with a large, airy, sitting room with television to watch DVDs etc, a dining area, a well stocked kitchen, two halls and a separate utilities room containing a washer-dryer. Expect to feel on a tropical island both inside and out
Lookout is only a 3 minute drive to the famous Rainbow Beach where you can explore the exquisite waters and marine life with my new 2 seater Ocean Malibu kayak or snorkel gear! It is also just as close to other sandy beaches on the eastern, or Atlantic side of the island. It is perfect as a romantic getaway or for a small family vacation.
Plus it is just a couple of minutes’ walk from The Rainbow Inn if you don’t feel like cooking or driving, and the private tennis courts if you feel energetic. The nearest shop is 5 minutes' drive away and now we have an organic vegetable farm about half a mile north from the villa.
Originally I bought Lookout just for myself, not as a rental, so I have furnished it to my taste; expect lovely, new Indonesian bamboo furniture, large mirrors to reflect the water, and Haitian and Caribbean artwork.
I have internet so bring your laptop.However, I have deliberately chosen not to have satellite/cable tv, but I have a huge selection of good DVDs to watch
Lookout is tucked away on a side road and is very quiet and secluded. For example, due to its elevation and setting on the Atlantic, it is cooler and less troubled by mosquitoes and sand flies than properties right on the water or on the 'Caribbean' side. When you come to the island you will understand how important this is!
There is a sizeable tropical garden of half an acre- help yourself to fresh herbs, papayas, bananas, passion fruit and sugar apples in season or sit and read a book. The second lot to the east is left completely wild.
Another reason why I bought this beautiful villa is the location in Eleuthera [see map]- Rainbow Bay is a great location for exploring the whole island north to south, from Harbour Island to Lighthouse Point,100 miles of beaches, beauty and history! It is only 15 minutes from Governor's Harbour airport and 20 minutes from the bustling little capital itself. Much as I love the capital, here starry nights, fireflies hummingbirds and amazing tranquility bring me back to Rainbow Bay to the sanctuary of the villa.
Eleuthera is the vision people have of the Bahamas - beautiful and unspoilt. You can explore to your heart’s content, go bone fishing, snorkeling, surfing- or simply relax, relax, relax.
Full details of the amenities of the property and information about the island is to be found in the folder at Lookout Villa. I would be delighted to help you rent a car which will bring you directly form the airport to the villa, arrange a fishing charter, anything to make your stay as pleasurable as mine are.
