A Turn-Cay House by the Sea 

 

BY TOM MCDERMOTT 

 

My family rented a house on a small island off the coast of Eleuthera in the Bahamas over a number of spring vacations. For several years – yes, years – construction crews were rebuilding the house next door – things tend to go slow on a secluded Bahamian island, which is why we go there – resulting in the owner of our house granting us a welcome discount.  The Bahamas News gives one all updates and all the latest events happening in the most happening island.

 

We will not be getting any slow-build discounts from Robert Myers, whose Bahama Island Homes just completed a fully furnishedturnkey seaside house in the Kamalame Cay resort off the coast of Andros island. “I’ve known Brian and Jennifer Hew, Kamalame’s owners, for years,” said Myers by phone from his own Lyford Cay home in Nassau. “Building can be a long slog in a remote place. We thought we’d build one by a new method and see how it went.” 

 

It went spectacularly well. The 3,000 squarefoot home was finished in six and a half months. “We can maintain the highest quality workmanship and share costs in Nassau, explained Myers. “We built the wall panels offsite and moved them by barge; we molded the slabs locally.”  

 

In classic Bahamian and West Indian style, the house has both indoor and outdoor rooms, includes 150-feet of beachfront, and is a short walk along the talcum-like sand to the resort.  

 

The 100-acre family-operated resort launched in 1996. It now has 27 oceanfront cottages and villas, a quarter of them privately owned, most of which can be rented out. The club offers a number of indoor and outdoor dining/imbibing opportunities. It can be reached by charter to Fresh Creek Airport from Nassau, and from Ft. Lauderdale/Miami by seaplane service and charter.

Once on Kamalame Cay, visitors swim, sun, fish, dive, explore, de-stressIt is both luxurious and unpretentious. As Rob Myers says, “Boredom is for people who are not creative.”
