Know Before You Go...
The Nest is a really unique villa because it's a studio setup. I love this aspect, because the open layout encourages romance and connection. There's a ton of "green" qualities to the villa too - all of the appliances are energy or water efficient, the villa is solar powered, and there's an organic garden that you're encouraged to eat from! There's even an indoor fireplace, which isn't very common for one-bedrooms. If you're environmentally conscious and want to be steps away from the beach, you'll love staying at The Nest!
The Nest is a studio suite located on an off-grid private island known as STAR Island Bahamas, only 15 minutes away from Harbour Island. The villa has modern amenities and sunrise views over the ocean.
Outside, guests have access to STAR Island Bahamas' beach, cabanas, fire pit, kayaks, paddle boards, and snorkel gear. The villa itself is steps from the shoreline, so guests can easily start their days with a morning workout or adventure on the water. There's also a beachside wet bar and outdoor grill, so one date night is already taken care of. An organic garden is open for guests to enjoy and harvest. The villa itself has two balconies that look out over the sea, and the ocean view is visible from every point in the villa. The villa is solar powered, and stocked with energy or water efficient appliances.
The open layout blends the living, dining, cooking, and sleeping areas into one air-conditioned space. The main area has a large sofa and 55" Smartcast TV, mounted on a wall that creates a boundary between the living and dining space. The dining table sits close to one balcony, and seats four around a circular table. The kitchen has a breakfast bar that separates it from the living room, and is equipped with a refrigerator, portable induction cooktops, microwave, coffee maker, blender, and dishwasher. A king-sized bed is raised above the living and cooking areas to designate the bedroom. The bathroom has both a shower and soaking tub, and is the only room that closes to the rest of the studio.
Guests at The Nest have full access to the STAR Island Bahamas staff, and receive one complimentary round trip to Harbour Island per day. Breakfast booking is available, and there are several spa services and activities available on the island, such as fishing, hiking, and snorkeling.
* Please Note
The Nest is solar-powered through the use of powerful salt-water batteries; to ensure the greatest energy efficiency, please keep all windows and doors CLOSED while the air-conditioning is running.
