Private and Picturesque! Enter your own paradise, via a 350 ft. paved tropical driveway. "Balara Manor" is a 5 bedrooms 4 bath 3900 sq foot 50 yr old, Classic Bahamian, stone and block Home.
Recently remodeled with updated dual master suites on opposite ends of the house. All the bathrooms completely redone recently. We also have added central Air Conditioning to the house.
The Gazebo offers many hours of shade from the tropical Bahamian Sun. Walk down the 20' wide Roman-style steps into the warm sandy bottom turquoise waters ideal for swimming, snorkeling, or bone fishing! You are able to watch the Bone Fish, along with other species of fish, swim past the Gazebo. We have seen everything from Sting rays to dolphins swimming in the bay.
You enter Balara Manor through a large Great Room that offers a spectacular view of the Caribbean. A fully furnished 5 bedroom, 4 bath home with a separate living room, dining room and a fully equipped kitchen round out Balara Manor.
There are King and Queen master bedroom suites, with their own baths. They are located on opposite ends of the house. The double rooms (1 queen and 1 double bed) share a bath. They are located in the middle of the house. A private area with two twin beds and a private bath round out the house.
Balara Manor's 2 acres are beautifully landscaped with many varieties of Palm trees as well as numerous shrubs and flowering plants. Depending on time of the year the garden can furnish you fresh herbs and vegtables.
A 10 minute walk will bring you across the island to the Atlantic side of the island. This will give you miles of pink sand, to walk on and explore. Our own beach, while not a great walking beach for long walks, is probably one of the best shell beaches on the island.
Two miles to the town of Governor’s Harbour will offer you all the services and shopping you need (No Gucci or Armani stores). Pretty much the basics including two banks, a fantastic bakery, 2 grocery stores, 2 liquor stores, multiple restaurants and even a movie theater.
Visit the Island farm for a large assortment of fresh vegetables and herbs. You can buy your fish fresh from the dock when the weather is good or drive to Tarpum Bay where fish are sold daily.
Weekly maid service is included. She will come to the house each Wednesday. (More frequent maid service can be arranged at an additional charge.) A cook is also available, upon request. Please ask Big T for the cost of this. It will depend on what level of service you will want at the house.
