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.

About Patricia Armstrong or Gerry Armstrong

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

Why Patricia Armstrong or Gerry Armstrong chose Savannah Sound

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.

Guestbook comments from the owner

Gerry and Patricia

We had a perfect vacation staying at your fantastic house! We loved the spacious rooms and great indoor outdoor design. The location is great. Having calm kayaking in the sound as well as beautiful beach available was great. The beach was fabulous and almost completely to ourselves. We had dinner at the Club one night. Eden and staff were great. Food was superb. Everything imaginable was available at your very well supplied house. We greatly appreciated the thick notebook identifying points of interest and good restaurants on the island. We visited many and had a terrific time! Hope to come again!

Whatafind at Whatavue!

  • 5 of 5

Our family of 4, with two kids ages 7 & 9, were totally impressed with Whatavue. From the very well stocked kitchen, comfortable beds, XM satellite radio, central AC to the wonderful pool, dock on the sound with two kayaks and well manicured grounds, it definitely exceeded our expectations.

We were able to rent a boat for a couple of days to explore the Sound and it was very convenient to be able to just tie it up at the dock. They kayaks were great too as it afforded me the opportunity to paddle over to the massive bonefish flat a few hundred yards away every morning before everybody woke up to get my fix in. No shortage of bonefish back there! We even caught a few dock snapper and a crazy looking black eel off the dock. Kids loved doing that.

House is centrally located which is great for exploring Eleuthera. Caretaker LaShanta was very helpful and very responsive to any questions we had. (She also has some excellent eats at her food trailer in Savannah Sound so don't miss that, very affordable too!)

Would highly recommend this house, Gerry was great to deal with and very responsive as well. Thanks for sharing your house with us Gerry, we certainly hope to get back someday!!

Extremely well maintained property in a fantastic location on the beautiful Windermere island

  • 5 of 5

Having stayed in several properties on Windermere this was certainly the best. Everything worked as described and even the water stayed constant which sometimes is not the case in other properties we have stayed in.The owners were very easy to deal with, had good comunictions and made sure all was fine during our stay.

The house has fantastic views of the sound between windermere and the main island. Will certainly be heading back again. All in all a five star house.

Beautiful property in a quiet area

  • 5 of 5

The villa was gorgeous and spotless. It has all the dishes, glasses, pots and pans you need to make almost whatever you wish. The gas grill worked great and was in better shape than I have seen at most of our past rentals on other islands.

The villa has central air that you can turn on at night for sleeping if you wish. We do not find central air in many places, so this was rare. It is nice because the vents are high up in the ceiling, it cooled very quickly and is very quiet...much nicer than room a/c.

The pool has sun almost all day.

The property is very, very quiet. Just some birds and many times not even those. The owners are super nice and even gave us some fresh fish, jack, that Gerald caught one day. We fried some and also grilled some for dinner...very tasty.

The villa lived up to the pictures and description of the listing, with one exception that was a misinterpretation on my part.

While the villa had a TV, it was just for watching DVDs. There was no actual cable or satellite. The wifi though, allowed us to check out the 1 or 2 shows we wanted to see by connecting to our Dish at home. The wifi was fast and reliable during our stay.

Definitely would recommend.

Paradise With A Pool

  • 5 of 5

WhatAVue is a great property. The view is beautiful with the changing colors of the water and it's really nice to see over to the lush hillside on the other side of the sound. The sunsets were spectacular. The owners, Pat and Gerry, are super people and their house was spotless and provided everything we needed to stay here comfortably. It was really helpful that they were on the island during our stay (at their other home). The pool was a bonus not only for swimming but it added a different point of view as well. The beach on Windermere is breath taking and we walked its length every day. I wouldn't hesitate to recommend this property.

Whatavue on Windermere Island

  • 5 of 5

Absolutely beautiful and relaxing and comfortable. The house itself is fantastic, with the spectacular pool and an awesome dock that you can kayak, canoe, swim off of. The owners treated us like family and let us use all of their snorkeling gear as well as their fabulous bikes. The house is very well stocked, the kitchen has everything you need and they have tons of dvds so watching movies at night is really fun. The whole experience was wonderful, absolutely nothing to bad to say, except I wanted to keep this our little secret! It's a magical, peaceful, serene place. The beach is outstanding and the water is heaven. Everything about the house was perfect, clean, well kept, comfortable, but big enough that we were not on top of each other. Great outdoor space and in a great location. And, they had lots of information about the area, things to do as well as great books on snorkeling nearby. A perfect holiday!

Owner's Response: Anonymous Thank you so much for your review. We are so happy you stayed with us , it is unfortunate I had trailer problems and we were not able to take you on a tour of the Sound, we enjoyed meeting your family, you were great guests.
