Overview

About the property

4 Bedrooms, 4 Baths, Sleeps 10

Savannah House is located on exclusive Windermere Island, a private gated island connected to Eleuthera by bridge. Savannah has a short private path to five miles of deserted pink sand beach. Savannah House is a short walk from the Windermere Club and comes with membership in the Club. The Windermere Club has a heated pool and tennis courts. In season the Club also has an excellent restaurant and bar.

The grand entry of Savannah leads into a large and sunny dining room. To the right stands the master bedroom and to the left, the bunk bed room. Beyond, the large high-ceilinged living room is soft and cool with bold sculptural paintings dominating the walls. Another guest room is off to one side, and the renovated kitchen to the other. The 4th bedroom is in a separate guest cottage right beside the main house. The guest cottage is optional for an extra charge of $700 per week. If you don't need it, it will be locked off and left empty. It will not be rented to anyone else.

All bedrooms are air-conditioned with en-suite bathrooms. Savannah has two king bedrooms, one bedroom with twin beds, and one bedroom with four bunk beds.

Amenities include air conditioning in all bedrooms, living room, and kitchen, high-speed internet/WIFI, TV with DVD (but no cable), and outdoor gas grill. Savannah has a shady cabana on the beach with beach chairs. The house is equipped with snorkel gear and an inflatable kayak. Daily housekeeping is included.

Stunning location:

Savannah is a short walk from the sea and beach from atop its private knoll. Its storm-safe concrete-block walls are coated with plaster mixed with honey-coloured lime stone dust from a local quarry and textured with seashells. A light raft-like walking deck surrounds the house.

Windermere Island:

Windermere Island, long a favorite of the British royal family, is a gated private island five miles long with a beautiful pink-sand beach running along much of the Atlantic side. A private club with a pool, tennis courts, and bar/dining room is maintained for members and guests. For more information.

Eleuthera:

Eleuthera is famous for its 100 miles of spectacular, deserted beaches. The island, home to just 8000 residents, is completely safe any time of the day or night. Enjoy the rare experience of picking up hitch-hikers and leaving your keys in the car wherever you go. The snorkeling, diving, and fishing on the island are world class. Boating, surfing, and other water sports are also popular. You can rent power boats, sailboats, sea kayaks, bikes. You can have a charter captain take you out for excursions of various types. There is excellent sightseeing as well. Eleuthera has vast caves, cliffs, a bottomless ocean hole, many unique beaches, historic churches and 19th century homes, and small villages to explore.

Cool Eleuthera house and amazing beach

  • 5 of 5

For our 'spring break' week, my family & I (and family friends of ours) loved staying at Savannah House on Windermere Island, which is connected by a bridge to Eleuthera Island in the Bahamas. Our group of 10 fit nicely in the house with 8 in the main house (one master bed room; one room with two beds, and one room with two bunk beds) and 2 in the guest house (i.e. a bed room and full bath), which is steps away from the main house and is great for people (a couple?) who want to get away from any noise/hub-bub in the main house. The house is decorated in an artistic way but not so much as to make it uncomfortable for relaxation and/or play (e.g. cards, chess, checkers). The house has an easily walkable path to a stunning almost-deserted large white-pink sand beach (snorkeling at the beach is decent and the Atlantic Ocean water is calmed by a reef off shore). Additionally, guests of Savannah House are able to enjoy the amenities of the Windermere Club (two dinners there were tasty and priced similar to nice island restaurants). The house does not have/get TV stations (there is a TV that is hooked-up to a DVD player; we did not use it); the house has usable Wi-Fi but the connection was in & out so some patience was required when using it. For a family who wants to "get away" to a fabulous seemingly-private beach while staying at a cool house, Savannah House is a great choice! Kids staying at Savannah House will need to be able to entertain themselves (at the beach or house) and/or play with family members & friends who are staying at the house or nearby. Perhaps the only drawback is that the nearest restaurants are at least a 20 minute drive away (and the single main road on Eleuthera has numerous potholes to dodge while driving 'British style' on the left side of the road). The one house issue that came-up during our stay was VERY promptly handled/solved by the staff that takes care of the house. My family & I and our friends had an A+ time during our week at Savannah House! Matt W.

Pictures are Much better than actual Property

  • 1 of 5

We stayed here in 2015 after seeing India Hicks at a book signing. The property has not been maintained. Several leaks in the kitchen. Sofa's and rugs were stained. Bugs throughout the home, but that is expected at a beach home. Further, we believe this home has bed bugs, even though the rental manager insists it does not. I would never stay here again.

Owner's Response: This review is from a guest who stayed at the property over a year ago, but for some reason just posted now. There has been a significant investment in the property over the last year or two: the bathrooms have all just been renovated , a generator installed , new doors , windows and screens ….. and significantly we have had no other guest in all the years people have stayed at the house , ever mention bed bugs.

Wonderful Property

  • 4 of 5

The Savanah House on Windermere Island is a perfect property for families. The proximity of the house to the Atlantic Ocean, the Windermere Club, and West Beach is ideal. The property's elevation allows for great early morning breezes enabling you to open the house for a few hours. The housekeeper and groundskeeper were there at a moment's notice and were very professional. I would definitely recommend this property to anyone interested in the area.

Fabulous week on Windermere Island

  • 4 of 5

We had a great week at Savannah House and hope to be back there someday soon! The house is perfect for a family gathering - beautiful breezy living room, nice bedrooms and a lovely screened in porch that turns into an outside dining room at night! Great location close to the Atlantic Ocean beach with good sunning, walking and body surfing. We got some tennis in at the club and and even paddle boarding on the sound! The folks at Eleuthera Vacation Rentals were very helpful with all the details - car rentals, flights, kayak rentals...all in all a great vacation!

Fantastic getaway

  • 5 of 5

The house is even more beautiful, if that's possible, than in the photos. It's elegant, simple, serene and just wonderful. The beach is incredible, with not a soul in site. The house is perfectly located next to the club too so your only concerns will be whether to hit the pool or the beach. Cleaning staff made it so easy to. And all the sheets, towels etc were absolute luxurious top notch. Loved it so much!

Amazing!

  • 5 of 5

Savannah house is a stunningly beautiful as is Windermere island. The house is quiet, peaceful and extremely well designed. The home is perfectly suited for a family with young children. Many thanks also to Eleuthera Vacations for assistance setting things up.
