Steps to the Beach is, in a word, spectacular. When you come in through the main entrance the first thing you notice is how spacious, open, and airy this fully air conditioned, 3,000 square foot house is. Under the impressive 16-foot vaulted cypress ceilings is a Great Room that seamlessly blends the kitchen, living, and dining room areas. The house offers plenty of light with large windows and sliding glass doors throughout for you to enjoy the rare views of the stunning Eleuthera sunrises and sunsets –something not to be missed.
Steps to the Beach is furnished with comfortable Tahitian-style furniture and has all of the amenities you’d expect. The kitchen is an appealing combination of mahogany and marble with a bar-top that can accommodate up to 6 people. It’s equipped with stainless steel appliances, including a gas range stove top, dishwasher, refrigerator, microwave and plenty of kitchen tools for those who love to cook. Just outside the kitchen door is a wrap-around deck with a custom built-in grill perfect for grilling up your fresh catch after a day of fishing in the warm Caribbean waters.
Also located on the main floor is a beautifully appointed guest bedroom complete with a Tahitian queen sized bed and a modern bathroom with a large, walk-in shower. Step out onto the room’s private balcony for breathtaking views of the lush Bahamian foliage with the crystal clear turquoise ocean as the backdrop.
A beautiful custom made wooden spiral staircase takes you to the top floor of the house where the master suite (and only the master suite) is located. Well-furnished and complete with its own luxurious full bathroom, the bedroom features a 4-poster, king-sized bed and panoramic views. Two private balconies are yours to enjoy sweeping views of the Atlantic Ocean and Long Pond, a serene body of water located on the back end of the property. (Long Pond contains fish and does NOT breed mosquitoes.) End a perfect day on the beach by curling up in your bed with the sound of the ocean to gently lull you to sleep.
Steps to the Beach, a few steps out the front door and you’re on a private path that leads you to your own secluded beach, with its fine white sand and turquoise water making it perfect for snorkeling, kayaking or doing nothing at all. There is a kayak and an outdoor shower for your use.
Therein lies the beauty of Steps to the Beach: off the beaten path, your own luxurious, Bahamian style villa with spectacular views, private beach access, and the peace and serenity you crave. Hunker down at the house and get away from it all or take a quick 10 minute drive to Governor’s Harbour, a quaint little town where you can shop, eat, or meet the local fishermen when they arrive every afternoon with their fresh catch of the day.
