Photos and Description of this 4 bedroom holiday home in Windermere Island - Coriolana
4 bedrooms all with direct access to beach
Coriolana sits overlooking the fabulous 3-mile pink sand beach on Windermere Island. A visit to Windermere offers tranquility, privacy and the restorative beauty of nature; fresh home-made bread and vegetables from the Farm shop, and delicious rum cocktails add to the pleasure. The pace of life slows, books get read, and there is all the time in the world for sunrise walks and sunset swims, snorkeling on the reefs and diving for conch.
Considered to be one of the most beautifully designed houses on Windermere, Coriolana has wonderful inside and outside living spaces. The wrap-around terrace overlooking the Atlantic, and the tranquil courtyard around the swimming pool both offer seating and dining areas. The elegant living room looks out across the turquoise sea to the East and the swimming pool to the West, through glorious french windows. Each bedroom opens out onto the terrace, and offers direct access to the beach, down a picturesque stairway, and the sound of the surf soothes you to sleep.
The master bedroom has a lovely large four-poster bed, and a large en-suite bathroom with both bath and shower. Bedroom 2 can adjoin for family use, or be separate, as both have direct access to the pool and to the beach. All bedrooms and living areas have very efficient air-condition, but the sea-breeze and the ceiling fans means that it is rarely needed. All four bedrooms have en-suite bathrooms.
The kitchen is fully equipped and there is also a great new barbecue.
The house-keeper and caretaker can help you with car rental, shopping, restaurants, cooking, babysitting, cots and more. While you are staying you also have temporary membership at the Club At Windermere, where you can use the tennis courts, restaurant and bar. We provide a daily 4-hour maid-service; more can be negotiated as can cooking and babysitting.
Local boats will take you fishing on the reefs and exploring the mangroves, following the turtles, diving for conch and searching for starfish. A twenty minute drive takes you to some excellent restaurants and if you are missing the hustle and bustle then an hour and a half drive takes you to Harbour Island and its vibrant night-life.
