Harbour Island, Windermere Island and a Boat
Six Shillings, originally built as a private residence on the grounds of the Pink Sands Club, was recently enlarged and renovated. Sitting at the end of a quiet lane on two very private oceanfront acres with a well-landscaped and colorful garden, the property is comprised of two houses. The main house has three air-conditioned bedrooms that open onto a large wrap around deck with both covered and uncovered sitting areas as well as a shaded dining area seating 10-12 that overlooks the beach. The spacious bedrooms are located on either side of the Great Room which also has French doors opening onto the deck. From all rooms in the main house the view of the famous pink sand beach and turquoise ocean is absolutely beautiful.
Outside in the garden and 25 ft. from the main house is a charming cottage, surrounded by palms and bougainvilleas, with an additional air-conditioned bedroom. Throughout the lush garden are a variety of palms, casuarina, almond and other flowering trees that provide ample shade. At its foot is a private boardwalk to the beach. This location is wonderful for walking down the beach to any of the beach restaurants. The closest is the Blue Bar at Pink Sands (3 minutes) and about 10 minutes to The Dunmore and everyone's favorite lunch spot, Sip Sip. One can also walk into picturesque Dunmore Town. Six Shillings is a wonderful, fun and casual beach house in the perfect secluded setting for a Bahamian vacation.Main House
