A High Tide Villa vacation will be one you will always remember. Your vacation home is just steps from 2 miles of pink sand beach and the calm, warm, blue waters of secluded Winding Bay. You will revel in the luxury and privacy of this recently upgraded 3,560 sf, 3 bedroom, 4 bathroom house with stunning views from every room. At the same time, you will find High Tide Villa casually welcoming and family friendly. Our own children learned to swim and snorkel right in the 'backyard' (beach). Each of the 3 bedrooms has a private bathroom and individual entrance opening towards the beach. The Master Suite includes a king bed, plenty of dresser space, walk-in closet area, and a giant soaking tub. Bedroom #2, (The Coral Bedroom) has two twin beds. Bedroom #3 (The Sandpiper Room) has a queen bed and is secluded at the end of the house. The entire home has ceiling fans and air-conditioning.
The 'Great Room' (living area) is open and spacious with lots of room for dining, lounging, reading, playing card/board games, and watching satellite TV. Bring your Ipod and enjoy your favorite music anytime on the MP3 player. DSL internet is also available.
Cooks will enjoy the fully equipped remodeled kitchen with state-of-the-art appliances. You can prepare the fish, lobster (in season), or conch gathered near your villa or visit the wharf in the nearby village of Tarpum Bay where the local fisherman bring in freshly caught fish each afternoon. A gas barbecue is also available.
You'll want to take one of the kayaks (or paddle boards) to check out the abundant sea life in the tranquil bay and the inner reef where you'll revel in the accessible snorkeling. The beach offers a waterfront cabana and plenty of beach chairs and lounges, as does the patio. There are many other nearby opportunities to explore secluded beaches, snorkel, indulge yourself in local culture, or just sit back and revel in your own private tropical paradise. It's always 'island time' in Eleuthera!
Your stay includes maid service for 2 days/week by a trustworthy maid (Lilly) who has been with High Tide Villa for over 20 years. If you require additional housekeeping services, babysitting, errands, etc, she can be hired for an additional fee (as required).
Have Cindy (a local cook) cater a real Bahamian feast of conch fritters, grouper, peas and rice, mac and cheese, coleslaw, and top it off with pineapple-coconut tart. The local restaurants offer great opportunities to sample everything from local home style dishes to gourmet fare served on the deck while you watch a romantic sunset over a tranquil sea.
Ask Columbus (the property manager and source for information on all local attractions) for suggestions on local fishing charter opportunities. Expect to catch dolphin (mahi-mahi), king fish, wahoo, mackerel, barracuda, grouper, and, yes, sailfish and marlin are possible. Columbus can also arrange car rentals.
