About Miranda Andrews

My husband and I spent five years designing and building Ocean Daze, our dream island home. It is our lives ambition realized! This totally unique, multi-million dollar home, sits on top of a 22ft. elevation, boasting panoramic views of the sparkling, crystal clear Atlantic Ocean in the back garden and lush, calm waters of Savannah Sound, protected Lagoon, world renowned Bone Fishing flats in the front garden.

Miranda Andrews purchased this villa in 2008

Why Miranda Andrews chose Bahamas

We discovered Eleuthera about 10 years ago. We had no idea that anything like this existed and just a one hour flight from the US. It is a totally unspoiled, uncommercialized island and it was 'love at first sight'. There are rolling hills, and lush tropical foliage throughout the island which is surrounded by the most incredibly beautiful, crystal clear, azure waters of the Atlantic Ocean. Historic settlements and friendly locals add to the flavor of this truly unique island experience.

What makes this villa unique

Windermere Island is a totally private, exclusive island. We have a security guard 24/7 to ensure that you are totally safe and will remain undisturbed throughout your time at Ocean Daze island retreat! Definitely something that our high profile celebrity and royal guests appreciate. The powder fine, pink sand beach is literally in our back garden. Beyond this is the crystal clear, azure waters of the Atlantic Ocean. We even have our own reef to the north side of our property. Spend your time relaxing on the beach in your own back garden, where the only footprints you see, will probably be your own. You can also explore the front garden, Savannah Sound, with it's world class Bone Fishing flats. Make our 'slice of paradise' your 'island home, away from home'. Come and enjoy this gorgeous, spacious, multi-million dollar home and make it your island retreat!

Guestbook comments from the manager

Ocean Daze is located on a pristine white/pink sand beach on the Atlantic ocean, nestled in the private island enclave of Windermere that has a unique blend of casual living with the benefits of exclusivity. The Andrews family goes to great lengths to share their family retreat with guests of Ocean Daze. They also coordinate all of the necessary island family services, including fishing charters, boat and car rentals. And a very good restaurant review. Your stay at Ocean Daze will make you feel like a part of the Andrews and the Island family.

Ocean Daze is heaven on earth!

  • 5 of 5

Ocean Daze was perfect. The beach was pristine, the water gorgeous.

The house itself was wonderful. Very comfortable with an updated kitchens and roomy bedrooms. The outdoor area is large with fabulous views of the ocean and the sound. There are bikes, kayaks, fishing poles and a paddle board. The owner, Miranda, went out of her way to make our vacation perfect. She will set up a rental

car, have groceries waiting for you, etc. This spot is amazing! We can't wait to go back.

Second trip to Paradise!

  • 5 of 5

My fiancée and I returned in June to Ocean Daze and it was as magical and amazing as the first time( June 2014). In fact, I chose Ocean Daze as the site to propose , so that tells you how we feel about the place !The beach is perfect, and private. The water is refreshing and absolutely clear. The house itself is on a large lot, with direct access to the beach. From the house to the water is a 20 second walk.The kitchen is large and has everything you need to cook any type of meal, and we chose to eat every meal at the house every day ( except for one outing for lunch), There are several well recommended restaurants in the area, but we simply can never drag ourselves away from the beach and the house! We go to Eleuthera and Ocean Daze to get away from it all, completely relax, and enjoy the amazing peace and solitude. We plan to go every year.

Bottom line- this house is an absolute "no brainer" if you want elegant yet comfortable seclusion on a perfect beach in a Paradise setting.

What a holiday in paradise

  • 5 of 5

If you dream about beach holiday in total privacy in an own private villa in a private island with everything you need available for your stay Ocean Daze is definataly for you. I and my wife with our youngest son (20 years) spent there a wonderful week. Almost just there. Ocean Daze is so tempating that it is hard to leave.

Villa is very charming, clean, well decorated with a great taste and with so many stunning details. Miranda provided us with all the help and support before arrival, was reachable during our stay and organised a lot of support us while we were there.

Sun, snorkling, kayaking, dining and just relaxing in the villa was really unforgetable experience. We would go there again and advice our friends to do so as well.

Stay in paradise!

  • 5 of 5

We loved Ocean Daze! It is a beautiful house with wonderful views of both the Atlantic Ocean and the Sound. The water is gentle as safe for kids to swim in. We did not see another person on the beach all week. Miranda's support in the trip makes everything go extremely easily. We highly recommend using Jackie to cook several meals and deliver them to the house - delicious! We are definitely coming back!

Best Beach House!

  • 5 of 5

I read a few of the reviews before we booked our stay at Ocean Daze & now having been there, I cannot agree more with the excellent reviews posted for this property. My wife & I love the islands, but had never visited Eleuthera before. We spent the best time on this island & at Ocean Daze that you could ever ask for...The setting & the scenery was perfect. The private pink sand beach, blue water & breezes from your back yard is spectacular. We spent allot of time in the terrace experiencing beach living at it's best. We also spent time exploring & got to interact with the local residents. They are very pleasant & helpful everywhere we went on this island, we even gave rides to a few hitch-hikers, which we would never do back home...The owners John & Miranda are top notch, they are gracious hosts & they are more than willing to answer any of the questions that we had before & even during our visit. They provided everything that we needed to make our stay a perfect one & gave us really good perspective on what to do on their island...For example, we asked which restaurant to visit for each of the days that we were there. We love good sea food, & I am letting everyone know that this island has great restaurants with amazing food. Eleuthera is the perfect get-a-way & Ocean Daze is the perfect beach house.

We truly had a blast & hope to return soon!

Thank You John & Miranda.

This is true island life - paradise found!
