Make a holiday rental home or villa in Windermere Island, Bahamas your home away from home

A five-mile long stretch of glorious pink and white Caribbean sand perfectly characterises the small Bahamian resort of Windermere Island, the perfect choice of destination for top celebrities and discreet holidaymakers alike. For those who dream of spending days relaxing on the private beach and swimming in the warm waters, and evenings enjoying top-quality seafood and wine whilst watching the sunset over the Atlantic Ocean, Windermere Island is the perfect holiday destination for a once-in-a-lifetime experience.

Things to do in Windermere Island, Bahamas

Windermere Island is a private haven that is accessible to only homeowners and their guests, so anyone renting a holiday villa on the island is joining a small and exclusive club. This high level of privacy makes for a serene and relaxing environment, and one that is ideal for lazing on the five-mile long beach which is often described as one of the most beautiful in the world.

The privacy of the island means it is also a popular destination with celebrities trying to avoid the media. Mariah Carey owns a property within its boundaries and was married here in 2004, and many other stars visit their property-owning friends on a regular basis.

The beach is lined by a five-mile long reef, and the fish and underwater flora of the reef make for top-notch snorkelling and diving. The waters of the Atlantic are both warm and clear and make for excellent swimming, and bone-fishing and spear-fishing are also popular in these parts, and these enjoyable local hobbies can be picked up after just one lesson. Sports lovers can make the most of the tennis and golf facilities on the island, and kayaks and bicycles can also be hired for exploring.

Abaco is known as the ‘Big Island’ of the Bahamas, and has much more in the way of tourist facilities.

Weather in Windermere Island, Bahamas

The tropical maritime climate of the Bahamas means warm weather all year round, with temperatures peaking at around 32C in summer months – though constant trade winds keep it from getting too hot.

As nice as the pictures are on the Web, they still don't do justice to how beautiful the property and surrounding area is. The house is kept in impeccable condition and you can spend the a whole week without leaving the bay. Fishing, sun, snorkeling, amazing sunsets, nearby supplies . . . the place has it all! - Peter I., NYC USA There are no words to describe how wonderful our stay was at Bahama Villa. A lot of tender loving care went into making this villa a most comfortable, inviting, and relaxing place to stay for any length of time! The house, the views, the patio, the deck, the sand bars, low tide, high tide, the snorkeling, the king bed, the privacy, etc. all added up to a great getaway! - Deborah Zuczek, PA USA
