Sunset Point Houseboat is a favourite spot for those who seek peaceful relaxation and fishing, swimming, snorkeling, scuba, kayaking, and birding mingled with the great feeling of being away from it all. In reality we are far from the maddening crowd!
The houseboat has three bedrooms and can comfortably accommodate six persons.
This unique wooden two storey houseboat has two air conditioned en suite bedrooms upstairs, a king sized en suite studio bedroom downstairs, a well equipped kitchen, comfortable lounge, breakfast bar, dining and social area. The houseboat has decks on three sides, providing space for easy lounging, fishing, sunbathing, shade seeking, sunset admiring and midnight star gazing.
The studio bedroom is a large room sitting above high tide, it has a king size bed, with crisp cotton sheets and sliding glass windows overlooking the creek. Through one windows in the studio is a private screened in porch with sturdy wooden adirondack styled chairs, and the other double glass window opens onto the large deck which runs the length of the house and contains loungers, chairs, and a picnic table, this is a great outdoor spot to enjoy the beauty of the view, go fishing, swimming and snorkeling and watch the spectacular sunsets.
Also downstairs in the houseboat is the lounge and kitchen, both of which have the large double glass windows which allow the breeze to cool the house and provide maximum views of the creek. The lounge has a couch and a dining table with chairs. The room opens onto a deck where, in the afternoon, the shade is deep and the breezes constant.
A long breakfast bar separates the lounge from the kitchen / dining area and the easy bar style stools provide a classic spot to work or play with nothing but beauty all around.
The kitchen is well equipped with stove, fridge, water cooler, pots, pans, cutlery and dishes, it has a table with chairs, and a couch for relaxing by the beautiful creek side. The kitchen has a large double glass sliding window and a glass door leading to the deck. Here you will be able to prepare your meals and enjoy the view of the creek at the same time. The fishermen can provide the fresh fish straight from the creek to the plate.
The long deck is the perfect spot to sunbathe, and a great place to securely moor a boat. Here steps lead down into the creek so that you can quickly immerse yourself in the soothing healing tidal waters of Fresh Creek. The old folks of Andros say that bathing in the out going tide is the best remedy for taking away the aches and pains of life and revitalizing the body in the mineral rich out going tide which draws the tiredness from the body. Swimming from the houseboat is refreshing and snorkeling will reveal the critters who inhabit this area. Under the houseboat it is possible to spend a happy time watching the amazing array of reef fishes who live beneath the house.
A spiral staircase curls upstairs where there are two large bedrooms, both with en suite bathrooms and creek side views. The Master bedroom has a king sized bed and sliding glass doors with a private balcony to sit on while watching out for incoming fish, this vantage view of the creek allows the watcher to help the fisherman cast in the right direction.
The second upstairs bedroom has twin beds, an en suite bathroom, creek side views and is safe for children.
The houseboat was named Sunset Point due to the spectacular sunsets we get in this part of the world, amazingly every one is different and the view of the sun setting against the water with a myriad of colours ranging from pinks to oranges to deep blues to rich black silhouetted trees along the coastlines are inspiring to behold.
The house is decorated in the lovely island prints of Androsia a local batik factory, the bedding is 100 % cotton, there is a barbecue grill located on the adjacent land.
