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.

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.

We just got home from a wonderful Christmas vacation. Matt at Eleuthera Vacation Rentals helped with all the planning and details, and Ms Goodman made us an excellent Christmas Day supper at the house with all the fixings and a delicious coconut pie. The house is exactly as pictured and the pool is inviting and almost private. The Club is just across the road for tennis and for BBQ's and special meals. The water was beautiful, plenty of waves to ride, and soft pretty sand with hardly a person in sight. The kitchen has indeed been redone and is stunning with cement counters, stainless appliances and pretty tile floors. The Island is quiet and very restful....ideal for families wanting simple quality time together. Windermere is a special place and deserves to be protected and loved for generations to come. It is lovely to be able to share in its rich history and wake up in a true paradise. Thank you to the owners, to Bobbette, Jessica and Matt for making our first (but not last trip) to Windermere so wonderful!

Fablulous Family Vacation!

Our family had the best getaway at Hamilton House!! The boys fished every morning on the sound, my son caught his first bonefish on the fly! and we all spent so much time in the ocean and pool. It was truly a vacation, and not just a "trip". Bobette cooked for us a few times and it was a TREAT, delicious treat, getting to spend all afternoon playing and not worrying about what was for dinner. It was perfect for our family, with 3 kids. Everyone got their own bedroom, and was HAPPY. We loved eating at Tippy's too and had a fun day trip to Harbour Island as well. We never got bored and loved seeing so much of the island! We would love to go back again, every year if we could. I hear the house is getting a kitchen remodel too, which will be wonderful!

"We loved this beach house, which was very spacious and accommodating for our family of 7. Terrific views of the ocean and there is nothing like drinking a cup of coffee and watching from your bed the sun rising above the Atlantic. The palm trees, landscaping, and pool are very well done - this place is cared for, but not overdone. We went in April and felt like we had the island to ourselves. It was great to be able to snorkel 30 yards off the beach and see a live reef. Just amazing how pretty and peaceful everything was.

On the other side of the quiet street is a path that takes 1 min to reach the club, where we found ourselves each afternoon getting out of the salt and breeze to enjoy a swim and have an early evening cocktail. Very comfortable pool and the staff at the club are super helpful. Chef Phil is wonderful, making lobster tacos, ceviche, and pan seared hog snapper. Outstanding meals and you can also find locals to come cook for you in your house. Grocery store is 30 min away and you need to stock up for breakfast and lunch.

The bone fishing in the sound is some of the best. We hired a local captain to fish hard one day and see all the marine life another, including sharks, rays, box fish, bone fish, turtles and conch, which we found and had fresh conch salad on the boat. Great times."

Here you can be as relaxed or as energetic as you like. Early birds can watch the sun rise over the Atlantic from the terrace, then the big decision of the day may be whether to buy lobsters at Tarpum Bay or Governor's Harbour. The house is spacious and comfortable (the kitchen is to have a makeover), the management team and domestic arrangements are extremely good, and The Club (tennis, swimming pool, bar and fine dining) is close by. We had a great time and can't wait to go back!

Fantastic Location

We stayed at Hamilton House for 2 weeks, though it was 'off season' for the island, our experience was both completely relaxing and full of exitement for 14 days of sun and surf. Windemere was the perfect location for exploring Eleuthera. From Lighthouse Beach to Harbour Island, the beauty of the Bahamas was within a short drive down winding roads in both directions. The Atlantic and Carribbean waters were within a stone's throw at any given moment. Not only was the snorkeling superb at each stop, the beaches in front of the home and the sound within walking distance provided plenty of fish to look at, eat, and chase. Spearfishing was beyond amazing. When we were waterlogged from the sea, there were two pools close by to splash into. The housekeeper was informative, efficient, and exceeded our expectations. If you are interested in bonefish......catching over 40 on the fly was a snap for those inclined. Our children were entertained by the ocean, beach and land crabs...(also tasty:) We all enjoyed the reefs out back, and beyond. The entire island was a treasure trove of sea life at its shores. Restaurants were delicious and within a short drive if we had the energy to leave after a day of exploring. Truly, a vacation to remember!

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.
