About the property

Ocenfront Home 4 Bedrooms, 4 Baths, (Sleeps 12)

Coakley House - Blissfully Uncomplicated Luxury Coupled With Great Adventure.

Coakley House is beautifully situated on a 1.5-acre privately owned point providing a spectacular 180-degree view of the pristine turquoise waters of the Atlantic Sea and Fresh Creek. Located on Andros Island, the largest yet one of the least developed islands in all of the Bahamas, Coakley House promises to exceed your expectations for amazing adventure, a relaxing retreat for your family and friends, and for countless romantic moments.

Your pleasure and privacy is ensured in this gated, tropical, secluded property once home to the Commander of the British Royal Navy. A small, private white sandy beach and a 35-foot boat dock are conveniently located within the property and provide excellent fishing, snorkeling, swimming and, of course, an idyllic place to soak up a little Caribbean sun.

The main house has been extensively renovated complete with all the amenities and are furnished in fine, colorful Bahamian Island style.

The house house has a spacious living room surrounded by windows and opens onto terraces in the front and back both overlooking a gorgeous ocean view. The large dining room with bay windows is great for intimate dining and has ample seating for larger festive gatherings. Or perhaps you will choose to dine al fresco under the shade of the ancient sea grape tree also overlooking the ocean. Or look up at night to take in the mesmerizing array of stars and the moon silhouetted against a coconut palm. And just across the Fresh Creek waterway is an old light house reputed to be a stopping place for pirates,waiting for you and your children to rediscover.

Each of the three master suites in the main house occupy a separate wing offering privacy, ocean views and breezes from every vantage point, king sized beds, fine linens and furnishings and an en suite tiled bath. The fourth bedroom is the perfect spot for children or singles with two cottage-style bunk beds, sleeping a total of four, and a private bath. All bathrooms feature a shower and a bath. There is also an outdoor shower.

Whether you seek one of the many grand adventures Andros has to offer, romance or perhaps a little of both, Coakely House offers an unforgettable experience, both simple and sublime, one which you will treasure and, like so many before you, will wish to repeat.

Private fishing guides and boats for bone-fishing, deep sea fishing as well as fantastic diving expeditions can be readily arranged.
