About Alasdair Ritchie
Janice and Alasdair Ritchie live in New York State, about an hour North of the city. They have a home in the UK too, in a sleepy Oxfordshire village where they spend some time visiting grandchildren. They originally bought Rainbow House from Katharine Jahr in 2011. She and her husband had built the house 30 years previously. Alex Jahr was one of the famous Gruner and Jahr publishing dynasty family with a fanatic interest in deep sea fishing, so many of his trophies adorn the walls of Rainbow House and the nearby Stella Maris boutique hotel. The house was built to exacting German quality standards.

Why Alasdair Ritchie chose Stella Maris
Rainbow House represents all that is beautiful in a Caribbean villa. It is set in a marine environment which changes continuously. The sunsets and sunrises have to be seen to be believed and the gazebo overlooking the ocean is a place to just contemplate the world. Sitting underneath the canopy of this simple edifice is the fastest stress reliever known to man. The whole experience as you look out to the horizon, seeing the odd cruise ship or fishing boat heading for Cuba or Florida, with the waves washing the coral right beneath your feet, and the large Infinity pool behind you..guarantees you will leave Rainbow a calmer, totally relaxed person.
What makes this Villa unique
The gazebo mentioned above. The Infinity pool, the beautiful stylish bedrooms-all quite different from each other and the huge living room redolent of the famous Ernest Hemingway. Nowhere like it in the world.

Booked through Stella Maris resort. Everything with this house was perfect, clean, absolutely beautiful! Infinity Oceanside pool, wow! Access to the resort facilities as well!
Rainbow House on Long Island is a rare gem!
Long Island is a hidden secret in the Bahamas. It is untouched, quiet and virtually empty. We had many of the beaches to ourselves.
The house itself is spacious, clean, and very well equipped. The kitchen has everything you need. The ocean view from the huge porch and patios are magnificent. The pool is very clean, huge and right outside your bedroom door. The beach and bar are just steps away. The Stella Maris staff were very attentive and responded quickly to every question and issue we had. We are heading back again this year. Can't wait for some rum punches by the pool! We recommend Rainbow House for everybody.
Beautiful Rainbow House!
We enjoyed a wonderful stay last year at Rainbow House on Stella Maris Resort , and we are returning this year! The house is very well maintained. The pool and sun decks are such a treat as well as the huge Atlantic Ocean views , every morning with coffee to see the sunrise! Awesome! The resort is so close - with wonderful staff to help if needed and they offer some terrific Rum Punch Party's and excellent meals... can't say enough about this great holiday home! Our family is quick to come join us on our Long Island retreat!
Rainbow House, set so close to the boutique hotel, Stella Maris,is able to enjoy all the amenities of the hotel. Taxis or inexpensive rental cars able to take to to stunning, soft sand beaches only minutes away.
Much history of the island from the landing of Christopher Columbus, and cave visiting is a must
This island is completely unspoilt and extremely beautiful with the big Atlantic on one side and the tranquillity of the other .
A marine paradise with no traffic and incredible diving, including the deepest free dive site in the world.
Or visit Clarencetown, the old capital of Long Island where the smart yachts and fabulous boats come in with their catches, which they often dress in the marina. This attracts sharks, tarpon, barracuda, jacks and all manner of marine life.
