BEACH HOUSE ON PRIVATE WINDERMERE ISLAND, MAY/JUNE SPECIAL: $2950/WEEK

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

House, 4 Bedrooms, 3 Baths, (Sleeps 7-8)

From the patio of Hamilton House, you can enjoy unblocked views of the Atlantic sea. At low tide 100 metres from the shore, you can see a coral reef.

Originally built by, and until recently owned by the Duke and Duchess of Abercorn, Hamilton House has played host to members of the British Royal Family including HRH Prince Philip, the Duke of Edinburgh, who regularly stayed here as a guest.

This beautiful holiday home has four bedrooms and 3 bathrooms, sleeping a total of 8 people. There are two private patios off the bedrooms facing the Atlantic sea.

The large 45 feet long living area is an ideal space for family gatherings and meals, making it the ideal villa to rent in the Bahamas. You can walk each morning along the most beautiful 3-mile beach in the Bahamas without seeing another soul. Good sport fishing such as bone fishing, with Eleuthera being well known for it's bonefish, as well as reef fishing, can be had on the Atlantic side or on the Caribbean side at West Beach 5 minutes drive. Excellent surf fishing on the beach in front of the house can be had for jacks, barracuda, and much more.

Windermere Island is a private island attached by a security manned bridge to the mainland. Guests at Hamilton House have Club Privileges and access to The Club at Windermere, with a restaurant, bar, pool and tennis courts. All within a 2 minute walk from Hamilton House.

Amenities and equipment include AC, wifi, satellite TV, dvd player, ipod dock, double kayak, sailboat, 3 bikes, kids beach toys, board games, boogie boards and basic snorkel gear.

We are the Symes family from London, UK. We have been coming back to Windermere since 2007 with our 4 children aged between 10 and 16.

Matthew Simon purchased this house in 2012

We fell in love with Windermere Island and the local people and decided to buy our own property. We love either being in, on or under the sea and so it was an ideal location. We chose Windermere on Eleuthera for its peace and tranquillity, one of the best pink sand beaches in the Caribbean and for its laid back charm. It is the perfect barefoot vacation and nice to escape the cold European Winter weather!

Hamilton House is designed to be a simple yet functional home for families to gather for their vacation. The house benefits from 3 double bedrooms, and one single bedroom so easily sleeping 7 people and also has two foldaway beds to accommodate 9 at a stretch. It has a large living space where family and friends eat together and enjoy each others company. For those who need to stay in touch with the 'real world' free WiFi broadband in included in the rental. It's really the peace, tranquillity and sheer beauty of the setting that make Hamilton House so special and keep us coming back year after year.

Windermere is a real 'get away from it all' kind of place, where the pace of life is relaxed. Some guests never leave the island, happy to slow right down and enjoy nature at its purest; others are more adventurous and set off by car to explore Eleuthera, with its varied geographical features such as Ocean Hole at Rock Sound or the caves at Hatchet Bay. There are some other fantastic beaches such as Ten Bay with its calm Caribbean waters and snorkelling treasures such as sand dollars and starfish (don't forget to put them back!) and Double Bay on the Atlantic side with its great snorkelling. Both 10 minutes away by car. Kids will enjoy fishing for small fry off the bridge - you can buy fishing equipment in Rock Sound. An absolute must is the Friday night Fish Fry in Governor's Harbour and the Homecoming Junkanoo in Tarpum Bay in July. And don't miss the quaint Haynes Library in Governor's Harbour which is worth a visit.
