Point o’ Vue is a 3,100 s.f. private home designed by the acclaimed Nassau architect, Michael Alexiou, to the owners’ personal specifications. The views of Winding Bay are spectacular from the front verandah, which runs the length of the house and offers a wonderful location for meals al fresco around the large teak dining table or simply relaxing and enjoying the breeze in one of the comfy lounge chairs.
The main living area of the house is open-plan, with 25′ cathedral ceilings and sliding glass doors to both the front and back verandah. It is air conditioned. The living room has plenty of seating, a dining area, an entertainment center with satellite TV and DVD player, games and CDs. In addition to the living room, the ground floor has a well-equipped kitchen with all the amenities, a master bedroom suite, a small study equipped with bunk beds, that can be used as a 4th bedroom, a three-piece bathroom with shower, and a laundry room with washer and dryer. The house is equipped with DSL and WiFi.
The master bedroom, with king-sized bed, is located on the ground floor with sliding doors to the front verandah and an ensuite bathroom. Two large bedrooms, one with a king bed and the other with two twin beds, are located on the second floor. Each bedroom has a private 4-piece bathroom, dressing/storage area, and French doors to the upper deck. The bedrooms are equipped with both ceiling fans and air conditioners. All bedding and towels are provided.
Step out the door and there is plenty to explore! If you’re not feeling very energetic, you can enjoy wonderful views of Winding Bay from the comfort of the hammock or the lounge chairs on the verandah. It’s a great spot to read a book and while away the hours. A few steps away, the beach offers miles of sand, two kayaks to explore the crystal clear bay, and a cabana with table for beach-side meals or drinks.
Winding Bay is a 2 mile wide bay, sheltered from the Atlantic by barrier reefs. There are only 10 houses on the bay, along with the abandoned Club Venta resort, which has been closed for several years, though is still maintained. The beach is extremely private – you’ll often be the only one on it as far as you can see! It’s also possible to walk along the shore for several miles to the south, where you can explore totally uninhabited beaches and numerous tidepools.
The reefs that provide shelter from the Atlantic for Winding Bay are some of the most beautiful on the island. Home to a wide variety of colorful fish, shellfish and sea turtles, they’ll provide many hours of enjoyment if you like to snorkel or scuba dive. The reefs are best reached by kayak or boat – see the FAQ for information on boat rentals. Some guests have also enjoyed fishing for their suppers, and in many cases have been quite successful.
Point o’ Vue’s treasures include our housekeeper, Tessa Hunt. She will be available as part of the rental on Mondays, Wednesdays, Saturdays, on the day of your arrival and on the day of your departure, for four hours per day. Daily service at additional cost can be provided if you wish, and can include housekeeping, cooking and shopping as requested. Tessa is also a wonderful source of information about Eleuthera. Her beautiful fresh flower arrangements will be found throughout the house during your stay.
