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.

Places to visit on holiday in Windermere Island, Bahamas

Windermere Island sits on one of the Bahamas’ outlying ‘family islands’, and is connected to nearby Eleuthera by a short bridge. Eleuthra also has uncrowded beaches and the laid-back pace of life which the Bahamas is famous for. Eleuthra attractions include the Hatchet Bay Caves and the Glass Window Bridge. 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. The hurricane season runs from June to November, so be wary of storms when visiting during this period.

We have been to Eleuthera before, so we had the luxury of knowing what we wanted and where we wanted to be. Our last vacation to Eleuthera was amazing and we worried that this vacation might not be as good as the standard we had was very high. Let me just say this trip far exceeded our last trip to the island. It started with great pre-booking communication with Sara the owner, she was so responsive and so helpful. We arrived on island very early in the morning on the day of check-in. We phoned Ken the great guy who looks after the house and he was very helpful. He was able to give us a definitive time to come to the house and check-in. We arrived at the house and as others have mentioned, it was just as good as advertised and in many ways much better. House is very new, very nice and so spacious. The pictures in no way give the proper perspective on how large this house is. The bedrooms are massive and the beds are very very comfortable. From the very first moment we entered the house we felt at home. Each room has air conditioning and the main areas of the house have central air conditioning which helps very much when it get's very warm. They have a very large refrigerator and a massive washer and dry for cleaning your clothes. On the backside of the house you have a massive porch/deck that is very well equipped with chairs, tables and lounge chairs. Also as you can see by the pictures the hot tube was amazing, especially at night. Paddle board and Kayak were an everyday activity for us. Just about everyday, we were able to see stingrays, and small nurse sharks. Actually you don't need to kayak to see the sharks, as they sometimes come very close to the shore. Don't worry they are pretty much harmless and they will avoid you if you are in the water near them. So much to see in the water and it was so beautiful. 21 days and it only rained one day.... Three weeks was not long enough, this house is amazing and we are already planning our trip back for next year. Thanks so much Sara for allowing us to stay in your home.

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
