Sylphide was a wonderful dream my beautiful wife Ingrid and I shared together back in 2006 when we bought a piece of land on a small out island in the Bahamas. The dream was eventually completed in 2009. Unfortunately I lost Ingrid suddenly in May of 2012, I hope to figure out a way to live out our dream in her absence.
The name derives from the Ballet 'La Sylphide'. Sylph (also called sylphid) is a mythological spirit of the air. Ingrid studied Ballet through much of her youth, until eventually deciding college was a better option.
As for Villa Sylphide, it is magnificent one bedroom oceanfront luxury villa located in North Palmetto Point on the Island of Eleuthera (50 miles east of Nassau), Bahamas. The villa is about a 25 minute drive south from the Governors Harbour Airport (GHB) in central Eleuthera. You can also check out the Air Travel Map under the Travel Tips tab to get a better perspective of location. It overlooks the beach on the Atlantic side of island where there are continuous ocean breezes. The property is equipped with luxury ammenities beyond what you might expect. It is ideal as a romantic getaway or honeymoon and has a short walk down to our beachfront.
I hope you will take time to browse our site and get familiar with this great property and the beautiful Island of Eleuthera. I think you will find it to be one of the nicer holiday or vacation rentals on the Island. My suggestion for anyone who has an interest in renting to inquire through the Homeaway.com site.
