BEACHFRONT HOUSE OVERLOOKING BEAUTIFUL 2 MILE BEACH WITH AZURE SEA

Photos and Description of this 5 bedroom holiday home in Windermere Island - Provender

5 bedroom, 5 bathroom, sleeps a maximum of 9 + camp bed

Welcome to Provender House, a five-bedroom villa perched above the pink and white sands of Windermere Beach on exclusive Windermere Island. Provender is the secret hideaway where Prince Charles and Lady Diana spent their honeymoon in 1981. Privacy and seclusion guaranteed. It is rare to see another person’s footprints in the sand.

All the main living and sleeping areas have wonderful views of the ocean, with glass sliding doors opening wide onto balconies and sun porches. No better beach and ocean view is to be found anywhere in the Bahamas. The Windermere Club, with tennis courts and swimming pool, is a five-minute walk from the house. Club membership is included with the rental.

The heart of the house is an open-plan living room and dining area, with a pretty Italian tiled floor throughout. Glass doors slide wide open onto balconies and a porch overlooking the beach. Ceiling fans and sea breezes ensure the air conditioners in every room are rarely needed. The kitchen is fully equipped. The five bedrooms can sleep up to 10 people (with a child on a camp bed). There are two king-size bedrooms, two twin-bedded rooms (which can be made into king-size) and one single-bed room. All bedrooms have a full en-suite bathroom and all except the single have views of the beach. The sound of the sea will lull you to sleep at night. There are balconies and a porch with loungers overlooking the ocean and a wooden sun porch at the back, a perfect place to barbecue your catch of the day! (Barbecue provided.) Steps lead down directly from the house to the beach.

The nearby Club at Windermere (five minutes walk) has a swimming pool and tennis courts available all year round, and a bar and restaurant open November to May. Membership of the Club is included in the rental. As well as the spectacular Atlantic beach below the house, there is also a more secluded beach cove nearby (five minutes by car) with warm shallow waters, ideal for small children. The nearest supermarkets are 20/30 minutes drive away, as are a good selection of restaurants, some in the local simple style, others offering a high standard of cuisine. A cook and/or babysitter are available if required. A daily four-hour maid service is included in the rental. The caretaker is very helpful in organising fishing and boating trips, etc.

Provender comes fully equipped with two kayaks, a small sailing boat, 2 windsurfers (adult and kid's), and bicycles. Other amenities include air conditioning, a landline telephone (phone cards can be purchased for long-distance outgoing calls), broadband wifi, and satellilte TV.

Windermere Island is for the exclusive use of the owners and renters of the small number of villas situated on it. It has long been the favoured destination of those seeking peace and privacy (the British Royal Family amongst them). Eleuthera itself is one of the outlying “family islands” of the Bahamas, famed for its unspoilt, uncrowded beaches with pink sand and clear turquoise waters. The pace of life is leisurely, guaranteed to be an antidote to the stresses of modern day living.

Eleuthera is a prime location for the sport of bone fishing and the exceptionally clear waters are perfect for snorkeling and scuba diving on the nearby reefs. The adjacent Harbour Island (ninety minutes by car and water taxi), popular with film and rock stars and international models, is famed for its straw market and pretty colonial-style buildings – well worth a day’s visit.

Places to visit on Eleuthera itself include the spectacular Glass Window Bridge, the Hatchet Bay Caves and Preacher’s Cave. The brightly painted houses of the local 'settlements' echo all the colours of the island.

This is an ocean-front property right on the beach. Fantastic snorkelling and diving are available on the nearby reefs. A prime location for the exciting sports of bone-fishing and spear-fishing. There are also beaches nearby with calm waters, perfect for children. Watch local wild life, such as sea eagles, rays and turtles, up close. Wander the streets of the pretty brightly-painted local settlements and take home the catch of the day fresh off a fishing boat. Swim in the turquoise seas or walk for miles on the pink and white sands, play tennis, eat in friendly local restaurants while watching the sun go down over the Caribbean.
