Overview

Property Details

Updated: Oct 1, 2014
4 bedrooms, 4 baths, sleeps 10

Designed by famed interior designer David Hicks, and owned and decorated by his daughter, India Hicks, 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. The Windermere Club with its heated resort pool is a short walk from the house. In season the Club has a restaurant and library, and year-round it has the pool and 2 tennis courts.

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. 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 DVR (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.

Contemporary design:

Reaching back toward the dawn of architecture for his inspiration, David Hicks, Britain's foremost interior designer of the 60's and 70's, brought an essence of the Nile Valley to this residence on the Bahamian Island of Eleuthera. His design alludes to the clean cubism of the temple of King Zoser.

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, follow this link: http://www.windermereisland.com/.

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.

Get away from it all....

  • 5 of 5
If you want a place to get-away, windemere island is it. Savannah house provided everything you need from a very well-equipped kitchen to games for kids. We travelled with three young children and were very comfortable in Savannah house. The housekeeper was wonderful as well and provided us with loads of information. The private path to the beach was less than a 5 min walk and you were a 5 min walk to the clubhouse which had a pool, game room and restaurant. We had a wonderful time and will definitely return.
