And here we have another house on another beach, though this one is on a private island in the Bahamas rather than clinging to the edge of California.
Allamanda is a one-of-a-kind home on the secluded island of Kamalame Cay and is elevated on stilts 14 feet above sea level, designed to maximize sweeping views and ocean breezes. Every space in the 3,175-square-foot, two-bedroom, three-bathroom home is designed to take in the beauty of the surrounding landscape, especially the large 1800 square foot covered porch and the home’s 150 feet of beachfront.
The porch has areas to dine, to socialize, to relax, to nap, all under cover with ceiling fans to enhance the natural ocean breezes.
The home’s two bedrooms—each with its own bathroom—are at opposite ends of the home; an outdoor shower outside the third bathroom provides a place to freshen up after an ocean swim.
The living, dining and kitchen, with soaring ceilings and bright white walls, sits in the center of the home and are open to that sea-facing veranda. It’s all very simple and clean and elegant and relaxing, and can be used as a private home, or as part of the resort on the island.
Residents can stay to themselves or enjoy access to the resort’s concierge services, culinary experiences—like wine-paired dining—and special events.
Personally, while I might enjoy a wine pairing feast, you’d have a hard time getting me off that porch to go anywhere.
