Fodor's Expert Review Kettlestone Luxury Villa

Fresh Creek, Andros Island, Bahamas

Perched on a small bluff overlooking Andros’s Barrier Reef, this dreamy newly constructed luxury villa provides a consummate private getaway. Comprising a great house and two generously separated suites, everywhere is filled with panoramic ocean views—starting from the superbly appointed kitchen and bar, through the generous living and dining areas, down to the hand-carved limestone terraces and gardens that meet the ocean. Between the sea and the vast Cedar Room is a covered patio, a freshwater pool, spa, a waterfall, and a hammock-strewn garden. With vaulted ceilings, architectural granite, oversized windows, and hand-cut native stone, Kettlestone is a masterpiece of luxurious coastal chic and comfortable living. While you nestle with friends in this breathtaking haven, longtime Andros owners Mike and Page Hornby arrange expertly guided fishing, diving, and nature tours for their lucky guests. Surprisingly affordable, Kettlestone is located three minutes' walk from Fresh Creek Harbour, conveniently close to shops and the airport.
