Description from the manager
Situated a few miles South from where Columbus stepped ashore onto Long Island's powdery, pure white silky sand beach claiming this "was the most beautiful island in the world", sits Rainbow House.
Perched thirty meters above the rocks with breathtaking views of the Atlantic's infinite horizon and overlooking its 1200 sq ft. infinity pool, a gazebo and the dramatic breaking surf, Rainbow house is one of the most spectacular houses in the Caribbean.
Crossed by the Tropic of Cancer, Long Island has the gulf stream warming the ocean in Winter and trade winds cooling its shores in Summer to create the perfect climate.
Long Islan...d is an undiscovered gem, unblemished by overpopulated hotels and mass commercialism, yet has all the amenities, comfort and adventure for a fantastic family or couples' vacation.
Rainbow House is located in the north part of the island called Stella Maris, aptly named "star of the sea" for its position between the emerald greens of the Exuma Bank on the island's lee side and the azure blues of the steep , hilly eastern shore bordering the Atlantic. And is just a few minutes from the Stella Maris airstrip.
Here you wake up to incredible views of the ocean from every room in the house. And fall asleep every night to the soothing lull of its crashing waves.
Rainbow House is a private ocean front villa set within lush tropical landscaping, with super spacious living accommodation, bright, airy and elegant large bedrooms and living areas, and is fully equipped with luxury amenities. With elegant lounge chairs, tables and a bar poolside, the villa has the comfort of home in a tropical paradise.
Rainbow House has been routinely upgraded and renovated, with internet connection, has split unit air conditioning, sliding French doors and premium grade fixtures and fittings in every room.
Dozens of incredible Caribbean beaches including the world famous Cape Santa Maria, Deals Beach, and the Love Beaches are close by for sunbathers and beachcombers. For the adventurers there are kayaks, phenomenal diving and snorkeling, legendary bone fishing as well as deep sea and reef fishing. And for tennis lovers, 2 courts just 5 minutes away.
Above all, Rainbow House is a matter of minutes from a friendly, family run boutique resort where you can choose to dine, hang out at the beach bar and enjoy all the amenities of the resort.
If you don't want to cater for yourself at all, an all-inclusive pricing package has been created for this requirement which includes other benefits as well.
Rainbow's luxury amenities with the drama of the ocean just below the house contrasting with the tranquility of the Caribbean just a few miles across the other side of the island,the activities on offer and the proximity to the resort up the road make this unique to families, wedding couples and honeymooners.
