Experience a taste of true island living with this authentic, colorful and breezy beach-style home, boasting gorgeous ocean views and a relaxed warm charm. The house is open and airy featuring a large veranda & cabana off the living room with plenty of outdoor seating, as well as a spacious poolside patio with additional seating, hot tub and direct sea access - step straight from the seawall into the sea! 22kw generator too! Follow las.cabrillas on IG for all the latest picture perfect moments. 

The space
You simply can't get closer to the water, no roads to cross; swim, snorkel, float, paddle board etc. straight off the seawall or relax round the pool under an umbrella with book and cold drink in hand!

This very much loved and lived in family home of 40 years is now available to rent for those seeking a relaxed and laid back holiday. It has the most stunning ocean views with the beautiful Bahamian water right at your feet yet is secluded and private from the sometimes weekend and bank holiday beach goers, especially in the hot summer months!

It boasts an airy and open plan interior with a spacious living area, comfy sofas, a dining table that easily seats 10, I have had 15 around it! Plus a bar and stools. Large sliding doors lead onto a large veranda that has plenty of seating and tables, perfect for relaxing, watching sunsets and lighting up the BBQ.

This is very much a family beach house, decorated in a fun, relaxing, welcoming and comfortable manner with all the amenities needed! We live bang on the sea so the property does get affected by that cheeky salt water from time-to-time, we are constantly trying to beat the elements but a price worth paying in our books! So if you are looking for 5-star perfection in every detail, then this is not for you; but if you are after somewhere full of charm and an abundance of character, then this is the one for you!

I would also like to add and clarify that this our family home and where we live when it's not rented so there are some drawers and cupboards throughout that contain our personal belongings, but ample space has been made available for you too.

- Master: Top floor en-suite with king bed, dressing & vanity area, and an ocean-front balcony with uninterrupted views as far as the eye can see!

- 2nd: Top floor: lovely airy bright room with queen bed and en-suite bathroom plus 1 single sturdy foldaway bed, another is available on request.

- 3rd: Lower floor king bed which can be separated into 2 singles with shared bathroom. Ocean view.

-4th: Lower floor with king bed and shared bathroom and a double pull out sofa bed.

-5th: Family room with 2 sets of of bunk beds, one of the bunk beds is a full size, plus a very long comfy sofa.

All the bedrooms have a tv, split ac unit and ceiling fan.

Island-style cottage kitchen with updated and quality appliances, including: large gas stove and double oven, a French door fridge, dishwasher and plenty of kitchen ware for those cooking enthusiasts!

Outside is host to a pretty courtyard/patio with a cabana and table & chairs, comfy outdoor furniture, lounge chairs, plenty of long cushions to lay out on the sea wall. A pool, hot tub and steps down to a small beach area, perfect for snorkeling in these gorgeous waters, or just floating about catching the rays. There are also many oversized umbrellas for those hot summer days which allows you to still enjoy the outside without too much overheating!

There is plenty of snorkelling gear plus floats of various kinds, long cushions and 2 kayaks and two paddle boards.

10 guests would be the optimum although the house can accommodate 14 with actual beds. There are 11 beds in total including pullout, foldaways.

Housekeeper optional, please let me know if one is required.

A gardener will come to the property twice a week to clean up the outside.

Pool man comes twice a week.

Start up toilet tissue, paper towel, wash up detergent plus dishwasher detergent provided but please note, once these run out it is then up to the guests to supplement what they need. I have a fairly well stocked pantry with various spices, herbs, sugar, condiments like mustard, ketchup, bbq sauce etc. which you are most welcome to use if still there after previous guests.

Secure parking lot with an electric gate. Guests can access all rooms and amenities, including cable TV, internet, large veranda, pool, spa, steps down to the beach, laundry, kitchen and bathrooms/bedrooms. I will of course be there to welcome you and familiarize you with everything you need to know how everything works. I will also be available during your stay should you need any further assistance to ensure you have a wonderful holiday in our treasured home and country!

House is centrally located on West Bay Street about a 15 minute drive from the airport. Only a 2 minute drive or 15-20 minute walk away from the famous Arawak Cay or Fish Fry as it's called, where you can get a taste of local delicacies, such as conch salad and sky juice; 5 min drive to downtown where the Straw Market and duty free shops are, as well as various bars and restaurants; 5 minutes away from the brand new Baha Mar Resort with the Caribbean's largest Casino and a large variety of fantastic restaurants and luxury duty free shops; approx a 15 to 25mins drive, depending on time of day and traffic, to Paradise Island which is home to the famous Atlantis Resort. And going in the other direction, a 10 to 15 min drive takes you to a couple cute little bar/cafe style places as well as the beautifully located and colorful Compass Point. Sandyport is about an 8mn drive where there are more fun bar/restaurants plus a very lovely one right on a pretty beach called The Blue Sail which has a large covered restaurant and bar area. There is a spacious sandy beach called Saunders Beach only about a 2 min walk down the road from the house or you can float your way there! Opposite the beach is a liquor store plus Burger King, a pharmacy and another few minutes away is a KFC and Pizza Hut. City Meat or Supervalue food stores are approximately a 8 to 10mn drive away.

You can't find a better location on the island! We are right in the middle of its 27miles length so nowhere is more than 15 to 30mins away, depending on the time of day and traffic!

The parking lot can fit up to 3 cars, more if you do a bit of wiggling! You can easily get a taxi from the airport (I can arrange if wished) or drive if you choose to rent a car. Easy on-street access to taxis and buses. Buses, known as jitneys, pick you up and drop you from where you stand on the road, and only costs $1.25 wherever you want to go.

There is also an alarm system and once inside the property, you are totally enclosed.

Please may I remind you that this is our home when not rented so it still has some of our photos etc, if this doesn't suit you, you have been warned!! So far, most guests have commented on how much they love looking through them, I'm told "they tell a story"! And again, if you are looking for 5 stars in every tiny detail, then this is not for you, this is a home where you can relax and put your feet up without fretting!

We have now installed a 22kw generator with an automatic transfer switch so your holiday is not interrupted with any island power outages which can happen often especially in the summer months.

Guest access
Guests have access to every part of the house.

Other things to note
All those staying at our home will be wholly responsible for their own safety and we do not accept responsibility for any injuries that may occur on this property. There is no fence or barrier around the pool so access is very easy - children must be watched at all times.

Be careful walking down the stairs to the beach. We will not accept responsibility for any accidents that may occur when snorkelling/swimming in the ocean or injuries due to falls because of slippery rocks/steps etc. You may want to consider travel insurance.

Personal belongings are the sole responsibility of the guests.

Private Chef, massages etc. can be arranged, again, prices to be discussed between you all!

Umbrellas must be wound down and tied every evening , we have lost so many due to unexpected storms coming out of nowhere in the middle of the night!



Please make sure all house rules are read and understood by all members of the group, especially those for departure day, ie: kitchen cleanup etc

The rate is based on 10 guests, there will be a charge of $40 per head per night for each additional guest, this applies to the majority of homes and on all other platforms! (you'll find other homes of similar size charge $50!).

We are in one of the safest residential neighbourhoods on the island that is not gated yet our home has an electric gate so once inside the property, the house is very secure plus its position has the great advantage of being secluded and very private from weekend and bank holiday crowds that often take to the beaches, especially in the summer months.

I am a very laid-back, easy going beach loving mum who now has three grown children that live across the globe (and now just the one dog, Alfie!). I was born and grew up in the Bahamas as well as attending school in the UK; I love the sun, sea and sand and the lifestyle that comes with it as well as meeting new people! This has been our family home for the last 38 years and now that the kids are scattered, we hope that there is someone out there who would like to come and enjoy this lovely old charm bright breezy beach house with all its quirkiness and gorgeous location as much as we have, and still do! and of course with the most spectacular ocean right on its doorstep and all it has to offer!
