About Miranda Andrews

My husband and I spent five years designing and building Ocean Daze, our dream island home. It is our lives ambition realized! This totally unique, multi-million dollar home, sits on top of a 22ft. elevation, boasting panoramic views of the sparkling, crystal clear Atlantic Ocean in the back garden and lush, calm waters of Savannah Sound, protected Lagoon, world renowned Bonefishing flats in the front garden.

Miranda Andrews purchased this villa in 2008

Why Miranda Andrews chose Central Eleuthera

We discovered Eleuthera about 14 years ago. We had no idea that anything like this existed and just a one hour flight from the US. It is a totally unspoiled, uncommercialized island and it was 'love at first sight'. There are rolling hills, and lush tropical foliage throughout the island which is surrounded by the most incredibly beautiful, crystal clear, azure waters of the Atlantic Ocean. Historic settlements and friendly locals add to the flavor of this truly unique island experience.

What makes this villa unique

Windermere Island is a totally private, exclusive island. We have a security guard 24/7 to ensure that you are totally safe and will remain undisturbed throughout your time at Ocean Daze island retreat! Definitely something that our high profile celebrity and royal guests appreciate. The powder fine, pink sand beach is literally in our back garden. Beyond this is the crystal clear, azure waters of the Atlantic Ocean. We even have our own reef to the north side of our property. Spend your time relaxing on the beach in your own back garden, where the only footprints you see, will probably be your own. You can also explore the front garden, Savannah Sound, with it's world class Bone Fishing flats. Make our 'slice of paradise' your 'island home, away from home'. Come and enjoy this gorgeous, spacious, multi-million dollar home and make it your island retreat!

Guestbook comments from the manager

Ocean Daze is a custom-built luxury private family retreat providing an environment that builds families memories based on the tranquility and purity of the authentic Bahamian island culture. Ocean Daze is located on a pristine white/pink sand beach on the Atlantic ocean, nestled in the private island enclave of Windermere that has a unique blend of casual living with the benefits of exclusivity. The Andrews family goes to great lengths to share their family retreat with guests of Ocean Daze. They also coordinate all of the necessary island family services, including fishing charters, boat and car rentals. And a very good restaurant review. Your stay at Ocean Daze will make you feel like a part of the Andrews and the Island family. If you want a truly extra-ordinary vacation experience, that gives you all the benefits of ownership with none of the responsibility, this is the place. We highly recommend the multi-week, highly discounted opportunities. "Experience The Daze of Ocean Daze".

Holidays in paradise

  • 5 of 5

We had an absolutely brilliant stay, for the second time!

The location and grounds are amazing

the place itself is very comfortable and romantic.

Opening your eyes in front of one of the most breathtaking view of the ocean will definetely lead you to a perfect day!

Miranda and John were the nicest hosts and always anticipated our wishes.

We will always remember the wonderful night during the Junkanoo spent with John !!

Would definitely come back for a third stay !!

Wonderful Stay in Paradise

  • 5 of 5

Ocean Daze is located perfectly on Windermere Island in which you can not only enjoy the beauty of the ocean as well as the tranquility of the sound; having access to both made this a property the most desirable on the island for us. The house was very clean, well taken care of, and made for a great vacation. Miranda was an amazing host, always friendly, and very attentive to our needs. We cannot wait to return to "our home" on Windermere Island!

Great Family Vacation!

  • 5 of 5

We had a great stay only steps away from the beach. We were travelling in a large group 6 Adults and 2 children ages 5 and 7 and the house had everything we could ask for and more. The owners were friendly and quick to answer every question which helped make everything go smooth. The owners work very hard to help prepare and guide you for the trip and have thought of all details, which truly made the trip relaxing. It is everything we wanted in a family vacation. The house is directly on one of the most beautiful beaches we have ever seen!! Not to mention the beautiful sound on the other side. We went out a few times on the sea kayaks and saw many turtles and some of the largest star fish we have ever seen. The powdery sands and nearby reefs were enjoyed morning and night. Everything was convienent especially with the new grocery store opening 5 minutes away while we there there. We travelled all the way down to Lighthouse beach in the south (1.5 hrs) and Harbour Island in the North (1.25 hrs). Ocean Daze was a perfect base to discover how beautiful Eleuthera really is. Ocean Daze is clean, well kept and full of opportunities to relax. It really feels like a home away from home, but better! We fully intend to return again someday and would recommend Ocean Daze to everyone!

Honeymoon in Paradise

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I have been vacationing at Ocean Daze since June of 2014. That first year, we absolutely fell in love with the pink sand, with the turquoise water, with the balmy breeze, with Windermere Island, with Eleuthera and its people, but mostly, we fell in love with Ocean Daze, the beautiful glass villa that we were blessed enough to call home for that week! And, while there, we fell more in love with each other. How could you not?!? You're in paradise! That was our second year as a couple, we had started dating in June of 2012. That June of 2014, at Ocean Daze, was the first time that we had a "serious" talk about our future together, sipping drinks that we had made with fresh, local ingredients, sitting by the ocean on our own private beach. The next year, in June of 2015, we returned to Ocean Daze for nine days (we just had to add those two days!). One night, after an exquisite meal made by a local celebrity chef right in our beautiful villa, my then-boyfriend proposed!!! Of course, I said yes! Again, it was an amazing vacation in paradise, in our beautiful and luxurious glass villa by the sea. We married in June of 2016 and discussed many possible options for our honeymoon. We travel often and there were many different cities and countries thrown into the discussion. We came to the conclusion that we could only honeymoon at our special place, our glass villa by the sea where we had already shared so many lovely moments, OCEAN DAZE! So off we went to Ocean Daze on our honeymoon! This time, we were there for 2 weeks! ;) I can't put into words how amazing our honeymoon was. The owners, John and Miranda, went out of their way to make us feel special. Miranda hand-painted "Congratulations" signs for us, with our names and decorated them with flowers and palm fronds. They also had gifts for us and they brought us wine to toast to our new life together! Miranda and John are so thoughtful, so warm and so welcoming, God bless them! We felt like family, we felt so loved. Again, we enjoyed all the things that we loved so much in the past, but this time, more than in any other place aside from our own home, we felt like we were home. Ocean Daze is very special, and it's very special to us. We LOVE our island home-away-from-home!!! And we look forward to many more years at Ocean Daze! -Angie and Luis

Complete relaxation

  • 5 of 5

If you are looking for a completely relaxing and peaceful place, you have found it at Ocean Daze. The property is beautiful with a wall of glass sliders to watch the sunrise on one side and and another set on the other to watch the sunset, allowing the ocean breezes to flow through the entire home. The water is spectacularly clear and the sand like powdered sugar. The property is perfectly situated to enjoy nature in seclusion. We didn't see one person on the beach the entire week. If you want to enjoy a pool, swim up bar and restaurant with others, we suggest Sky Beach Resort. You don't have to be a guest to use the facility and they have the best grouper sandwich on the island (without the sauce, you really get the flavor of the grouper!). One of the highlights of our food menu was hitting up the docks between 3:00 and 4:00 to purchase fish right off the boats and bringing it back to grill. We enjoyed fresh snapper from Tarpum Bay and grouper from Governors Harbour. It was also pleasant just riding bikes down the secluded road of Windermere Island. John and Miranda were most helpful and always at the ready to respond to any requests not to mention wonderful people.

Owner's Response: Fred, thanks so much for taking the time to write a review. We are absolutely delighted that you and your lovely wife had such a wonderful relaxing time at Ocean Daze. It really is a very special place and we love to share it with special people like you and Leslie. So glad that you were able to enjoy those ocean breezes throughout the house. The crystal clear ocean water just steps from the house is so inviting isn't it. Just one disclaimer: once you've had your own private beach all to yourselves, it's really difficult to have to share again! I'm glad that I was able to direct you to some of the highlights on the island of Eleuthera. There are many hidden gems to enjoy! We look forward to seeing you both the next time you want to get away from it all and relax in paradise...
