Overview

Photos and Description of this 4 bedroom holiday home in Windermere Island - Savannah House

4 bedrooms, 4 baths, sleeps 10

Designed by famed interior designer David Hicks, and owned and decorated by his daughter, India Hicks, Savannah House is located on exclusive Windermere Island, a private gated island connected to Eleuthera by bridge. Savannah has a short private path to five miles of deserted pink sand beach. The Windermere Club with its heated resort pool is a short walk from the house. In season the Club has a restaurant and library, and year-round it has the pool and 2 tennis courts.

The grand entry of Savannah leads into a large and sunny dining room. To the right stands the master bedroom and to the left, the bunk bed room. Beyond, the large high-ceilinged living room is soft and cool with bold sculptural paintings dominating the walls. Another guest room is off to one side, and the renovated kitchen to the other. The 4th bedroom is in a separate guest cottage. All bedrooms are air-conditioned with en-suite bathrooms. Savannah has two king bedrooms, one bedroom with twin beds, and one bedroom with four bunk beds.

Amenities include air conditioning in all bedrooms, living room, and kitchen, high-speed internet/WIFI, TV with DVR (but no cable), and outdoor gas grill. Savannah has a shady cabana on the beach with beach chairs. The house is equipped with snorkel gear and an inflatable kayak. Daily housekeeping is included.

Contemporary design:

Reaching back toward the dawn of architecture for his inspiration, David Hicks, Britain's foremost interior designer of the 60's and 70's, brought an essence of the Nile Valley to this residence on the Bahamian Island of Eleuthera. His design alludes to the clean cubism of the temple of King Zoser.

Stunning location:

Savannah is a short walk from the sea and beach from atop its private knoll. Its storm-safe concrete-block walls are coated with plaster mixed with honey-coloured lime stone dust from a local quarry and textured with seashells. A light raft-like walking deck surrounds the house.

Windermere Island:

Windermere Island, long a favorite of the British royal family, is a gated private island five miles long with a beautiful pink-sand beach running along much of the Atlantic side. A private club with a pool, tennis courts, and bar/dining room is maintained for members and guests. For more information, follow this link: http://www.windermereisland.com/.

Eleuthera:

Eleuthera is famous for its 100 miles of spectacular, deserted beaches. The island, home to just 8000 residents, is completely safe any time of the day or night. Enjoy the rare experience of picking up hitch-hikers and leaving your keys in the car wherever you go. The snorkeling, diving, and fishing on the island are world class. Boating, surfing, and other water sports are also popular. You can rent power boats, sailboats, sea kayaks, bikes. You can have a charter captain take you out for excursions of various types. There is excellent sightseeing as well. Eleuthera has vast caves, cliffs, a bottomless ocean hole, many unique beaches, historic churches and 19th century homes, and small villages to explore.

Wonderful Property

  • 4 of 5

The Savanah House on Windermere Island is a perfect property for families. The proximity of the house to the Atlantic Ocean, the Windermere Club, and West Beach is ideal. The property's elevation allows for great early morning breezes enabling you to open the house for a few hours. The housekeeper and groundskeeper were there at a moment's notice and were very professional. I would definitely recommend this property to anyone interested in the area.

Fabulous week on Windermere Island

  • 4 of 5

We had a great week at Savannah House and hope to be back there someday soon! The house is perfect for a family gathering - beautiful breezy living room, nice bedrooms and a lovely screened in porch that turns into an outside dining room at night! Great location close to the Atlantic Ocean beach with good sunning, walking and body surfing. We got some tennis in at the club and and even paddle boarding on the sound! The folks at Eleuthera Vacation Rentals were very helpful with all the details - car rentals, flights, kayak rentals...all in all a great vacation!

Fantastic getaway

  • 5 of 5

The house is even more beautiful, if that's possible, than in the photos. It's elegant, simple, serene and just wonderful. The beach is incredible, with not a soul in site. The house is perfectly located next to the club too so your only concerns will be whether to hit the pool or the beach. Cleaning staff made it so easy to. And all the sheets, towels etc were absolute luxurious top notch. Loved it so much!

Amazing!

Savannah house is a stunningly beautiful as is Windermere island. The house is quiet, peaceful and extremely well designed. The home is perfectly suited for a family with young children. Many thanks also to Eleuthera Vacations for assistance setting things up.

If you want to get away from it all...

  • 5 of 5

The Savannah House is a beautiful place to get away from it all, and enjoy the company you keep. This spacious house can comfortably host a small dinner party and have all partake in the cooking as the kitchen can accommodate all. The fishermen come into the docks every afternoon to sell the fresh catch of the day. This was the best meal of the trip.The beach on the Atlantic side is amazing for walking, fishing, and swimming . The locals are very friendly, try the Fish Fry on in Governor's Harbor if you are here on a Friday night. Violet the housekeeper is very kind an informative. So if you want to get away from it all and enjoy a piece of paradise, book the Savannah House.

Get away from it all....

  • 5 of 5

If you want a place to get-away, windemere island is it. Savannah house provided everything you need from a very well-equipped kitchen to games for kids. We travelled with three young children and were very comfortable in Savannah house. The housekeeper was wonderful as well and provided us with loads of information. The private path to the beach was less than a 5 min walk and you were a 5 min walk to the clubhouse which had a pool, game room and restaurant. We had a wonderful time and will definitely return.
