Miranda Andrews purchased this villa in 2008
We discovered Eleuthera about 10 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.

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.

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!
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
A Picture Perfect Island wedding at Ocean Daze,Windermere Island.My husband, Dave, and I were so blessed to be apart of my sister Susan and Mikes special day! It was paridise with the light breeze, tranquil waters and having the entire pink sand beach to ourselves! Miranda was perfect with the selection of flowers, wedding / reception area set up and especially the photos of my sister and I. Every thought and detail made it perfect. Thank you so much Miranda for making us feel so welcomed and for doing a fantastic job on this special wedding day!
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.
Ocean Daze was perfect. The beach was pristine, the water gorgeous.
The house itself was wonderful. Very comfortable with an updated kitchens and roomy bedrooms. The outdoor area is large with fabulous views of the ocean and the sound. There are bikes, kayaks, fishing poles and a paddle board. The owner, Miranda, went out of her way to make our vacation perfect. She will set up a rental
car, have groceries waiting for you, etc. This spot is amazing! We can't wait to go back.
My fiancée and I returned in June to Ocean Daze and it was as magical and amazing as the first time( June 2014). In fact, I chose Ocean Daze as the site to propose , so that tells you how we feel about the place !The beach is perfect, and private. The water is refreshing and absolutely clear. The house itself is on a large lot, with direct access to the beach. From the house to the water is a 20 second walk.The kitchen is large and has everything you need to cook any type of meal, and we chose to eat every meal at the house every day ( except for one outing for lunch), There are several well recommended restaurants in the area, but we simply can never drag ourselves away from the beach and the house! We go to Eleuthera and Ocean Daze to get away from it all, completely relax, and enjoy the amazing peace and solitude. We plan to go every year.
Bottom line- this house is an absolute "no brainer" if you want elegant yet comfortable seclusion on a perfect beach in a Paradise setting.
Ocean Daze.........a beautiful, newer vacation home with stunning Saturnia marble floors throughout and endless panoramic views of the Atlantic Ocean and Savannah Sound from every room. This elegant island villa has 1800 sq ft of air conditioned space and 1,800 sq ft of exterior covered living area.

You will probably find that your footprints are the only ones on the beach!
If you happen to see another car along the Queens Highway (the one main road on this 110 mile long island) the driver is sure to give you a friendly island wave!
This is true island life - paradise found!
