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".

Beautiful, secluded and private beach home! Perfect for our family of 5!

  • 5 of 5

We had the most wonderful week at Ocean Daze! One of the most exciting yet relaxing trips we have ever taken with our kids. We have 2 boys and a 3 year old little girl- my husband and I could drink coffee out on the balcony and still see the kids playing below on the beach! We took 2 awesome excursions- an adventure one with Denny- where we saw all the sea turtles and starfish. Then went deep sea fishing with Captain Cally- my husband and boys caught a beautiful sailfish and tons of barracuda! We loved it!!! Capt Cally also took us by the gorgeous Schooner Cay beach, and had lunch at Cape Eleuthera. My husband and son also had a bone-fishing lesson with Denny. Also checked out West End Beach a couple of days- so quiet and secluded.

Miranda and John have EVERYTHING you could ever need in the house- from hair dryers to tweezers- and PLENTY of supplies in the kitchen. We brought a cooler full of meat on our flight so were able to grill out a lot at the house. Gorgeous sunsets by the grill! And there is a grocery store nearby if you need anything!

One last especially nice thing Miranda did for me—I am an artist and she made sure I had an easel while I was there! Made me feel right at home! I was able to paint on the beautiful beaches of Eleuthera!!!

It was the perfect spring break for our family- made many, many memories for years to come!

Thanks Miranda and John for making us feel so welcome in your Beautiful home!!! We LOVED The Ocean Daze!!!

Stunning location for the perfect getaway

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I stayed 2 weeks at Ocean Daze. We walked on the beach each morning and afternoon and rarely saw other people. Words cannot express how absolutely beautiful this beach is. Miranda and John were gracious hosts, eager to make everything perfect for us in their wonderful home as well as provide dinner recommendations or whatever else we requested. Perfectly located on Windermere island. What a treat.

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!

Car: recommended

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.

Your escape from the 'rat race' is on the exclusive, private, Windermere Island. It is accessed from the island of Eleuthera via a gated bridge.

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!

Other Activities: escape from the rat race!!! stroll/jog the miles of secluded beaches, photograph the incredible beauty, total privacy and unspoiled beauty, snorkel, dive, Bone fishing, Ocean fishing, boating. Panoramic views of crystal clear ocean/ pink sand beach, and Savannah Sound from every room in the house!
