Fancy a quick getaway to the Bahamas that swaddles you in all the comforts of a vacation home while delivering luxury hotel-style amenities, too? Looking for an on-call 24/7 concierge and access to the neighborhood’s beach resort and restaurants as well? It’s time to let everyone in on a delightful little secret that isn’t too far away.
Located in the emerging neighborhood of Bahama Palm Shores, Shellona Abaco Beach House fronts the Atlantic Ocean, offering sweeping views of the eight-mile-long High Banks Beach.
The four-bedroom/three-bathroom house on the east coast of South Abaco has an appealing inverted floor plan that puts the living room, dining room, and professional chef’s kitchen on the home’s upper level—maximizing the most beautiful ocean views from the home’s primary gathering spaces.
Outdoor areas are made for entertaining and communing, too, with Adirondack chairs and teak sunbeds for lounging, an outdoor barbecue grill, portable Sonos speakers you can bring down to the beach, and all the beach toys, too, from kites to snorkeling gear. After a day on the sand, rinse off in the outdoor shower and enjoy the silky ocean breezes on your skin.
Bedrooms are decadent, beckoning guests to sleep in, with Egyptian cotton sheets and hand-stitched Italian duvet covers on the beds. In the bathrooms, the luxury hotel-feel continues with rain head showers and Molton Brown amenities.
Cheerful colors and tropical patterns mix with modern finishes throughout the home for a cool, contemporary feel that delivers a true island sense of place. Guests also have access to Abaco Beach Resort’s amenities, including the restaurants and marina, where you can rent a 25-foot Pursuit fishing boat and head out in hopes of snagging dinner on the line.
