Here are a few words directly from the owner                                                                                                   of this awesome home on San Salvador Bahamas.

 

I knew I loved San Sal the moment we first landed on the island and began to tour the place.  However when I came across Snow Bay I knew I had found one of the truly remarkably beautiful places in the world.  I had to have my home right there.  The shallow turquoise waters provide almost a gigantic private swimming pool.  The shallow waters and the cays provide a natural buffer from strong winds and bad weather .

We built our ocean side home strong and sturdy.  Poles anchor the house into the ground and the fiberglass roof provides no worry of damage from strong winds.  The strength of this home was put on display last year during Hurricane Joaquin.  While much of the Island was devastated and homes destroyed, our home was left with little more than some chipped paint off the walls.  You need a strong home to battle mother nature out there.  This is the one.

The house is set up very open and simple: a large living room/kitchen with two virtually identical bedrooms on either side (each with full baths).  The real gem of the house though is the deck, fully circling the house, that provides an outside feel while still being covered from the sun and rain.

I have personally planted 20 or so palm trees on the lot…one towers 10 feet or so in height, others of varying heights, all which when mature will create a stunning landscape on the property.  House has a 2.5 car garage.  House runs on solar power and backup propane generator.  Other amenities include:

– Eight newly purchased Deka gel solar batteries…these should last at least another 15 years

– Newly painted deck one year ago

– newly painted and sealed roof one year ago

– high dollar propane generator

– All furniture, decorations, dishwater, etc will be sold with the house minus clothes and personal pictures

 

This home is literally turn-key.

Bahamas, San Salvador visit Stanley’s Bar

Stanley’s Bar is an icon in the Bahamas on the Island of San Salvador. If you ever visit the Island you have to go for a drink a Stanley’s, even if you do nothing else.This little bar gives you a great feeling for the Bahamian people, the Island and the way they live on San Salvador.
Stanley's Bar San Salvador Bahamas (6)
Stanley’s is open every day from about 7 am to 7 pm. The bar is located in Sugar Loaf, about 7 minutes south of San Sal airport. It sit right on Queens highway, next to Kenny the wood-carver. (which will be another post)

Most tourist drive by, not even knowing that they just missed an awesome place. Yes, there is a sign but since the little bar is in a corner and cars are always parked on that corner, you will focus on the street and miss the bar. There is no official parking lot but then again, we are in the Bahamas, on San Salvador, you can pretty much park anywhere other than in the middle of the street.  Sometimes the door is closed and the place looks deserted from the outside  but  don’t worry, just pull the door and walk right in.

Stanley’s bar is tiny but so cosy, when you have 4 people at the bar counter and 4 people sitting on chairs, the bar is full and unusually crowed. Sometimes when the weather is not too hot or cold here in the Bahamas, people take their drinks outside and sit on the front steps.

Stanley's Bar San Salvador Bahamas (8)

Stanley runs this bar for more than … years now and he is the sweetest and friendliest bar tender you can find anywhere. He knows all his clients, knows what they drink and greets everybody with a warm welcome. I had only been to the bar once but month later when I visited the Island again, he gave me a big hug and with a huge smile on his face he said “Welcome back to San Salvador Anne”  .

Every one on the Island knows Stanley and his bar, everybody stops by for a beer once in a while and a lot of stories get told and created in this bar. People just hang or play domino or back gammon (on the one table in the bar) or you take your drink outside and go over to Edna (Stanley;s mother) and sit on her doorsteps chit chatting for a while, surrounded by a cat and some chicken and children playing. But, be careful, if Edna starts telling you her stories you might stay much longer than you anticipated, time just flies by listing to her.

Enough said about Stanley’s bar here in the Bahamas on San Salvador, no words or pictures can describe it.

Trust me, if you have not seen Stanley’s Bar you have not seen San Salvador. If it was up to me, it would be a national historic site ! Check out the  San Salvador Video

Airport San Salvador Bahamas

San Salvador International Airport gets an upgrade
Transport and Aviation Minister the Hon. Glenys Hanna-Martin led a delegation to San Salvador on Tuesday morning to tour the San Salvador International Airport as it undergoes an expansion and structural upgrades after the terminal suffered structural damage during the passage of Joaquin.

“It would not be unfair to say that San Salvador is getting a new airport” said the Transport and Aviation Minister, obviously pleased with the progress made to date.

With increased airlift to the island from France, Canada and the United States, Minister Hanna-Martin is confident that an enhanced airport, the gateway, will definitely enhance the island’s tourism product.

“An enhanced airport that more properly facilitates people to this island I think will enhance the (tourism) product” she said.

Having commenced on the 12th January, the $1.2 million airport expansion and upgrades are being carried out by World Construction and Development Company.
