Beautiful Plantation Cove retreat in the Bahamas

Plantation Cove is an outstanding private estate on the west side of the island of New Providence, Nassau, Bahamas. The estate has a renowned garden, overlooking the entire bay from an elevated position, and has immediate access to a private beach. The white powdery beach stretches out over nearly one kilometer wrapping around the turquoise lagoon. The house itself is 14,000 square feet and was furnished and decorated by an international designer as her own home, and presents a quality of design and furnishings rarely found in a rental home.

On first entering the 3-acre site, one follows the winding driveway though the multitudes of palm tree specimens, with huge silk cotton trees in the distance. The large, antique, wooden front door invites you into a floral-covered courtyard, which especially in the winter, can serve as a wonderful outside dining area. The “Court Yard” not only gives access to the main house but also leads to 2 separate bedrooms.

When first stepping into the Main House, visitors enter the spacious “Blue Reception Room” with a breath-taking southern view overlooking the terrace, infinity pool and ocean. Three French windows lead to the vaulted terrace, a charming space to relax and be sheltered from the sun, on comfortable sofas, with soft scatter cushions and unusual fossil lamps. This terrace leads to the infinity pool, overlooking the turquoise waters of the ocean, and a broad staircase, carved into the rocks leading down to the beach.

There are 8 bedrooms and 9 bathrooms (6 en-suites), most notably is the master bedroom suite, called “The Panoramic Suite” which comprises some 1,100 square feet. The bedroom offers a very elegant layout with private salon – dressing room, giving breathtaking views towards the gardens in the front due to long extended terraces filled with an abundance of flowering jardinieres. The main room has panoramic windows over the seas, giving a feeling of literally overhanging them. And two marble clad bathrooms fitted with ample cupboard and storage space.

This sensational beachfront estate can be rented from $8700 – $11000 per night here.

This multi-million-dollar investment was probably never used as a “retreat”, always as a rental property. The line between it and a hotel is unclear, probably having something to do with the 3 or 4 weeks a year that the owner actually spends in it. Global warming will soon reduce the stroll down the steps from the terrace to the beach. Maybe with a little luck, it’ll also receive a direct Category 5, providing a test of the soundness of its construction.
