Beach House. Dream beach house ideas. #BeachHouse #DreamHome


Many of us try to take some weeks off during summer to relax somewhere far away from work, errands and that nosy neighbor. Imagine being able to pack your bags and get on a plane. Your destination? A tiny beachfront cottage in the Bahamas!

With simple neutral coastal interiors, this beach cottage is dreamy from beginning to end. An open concept floorplan makes this small cottage feel more spacious while high ceilings bring an airy feel.

The decor in this cottage is yet another positive factor in this place. Subtle coastal decorative pieces are displayed in many areas, but what really predominates here is the clean and timeless architectural appeal found in details such as plank walls and wide plank wood flooring.

If the ocean brings peace to you, as it does to me, you will probably love to sit on the front porch and watch the sunset while hearing the waves crashing only a few steps away.

Now, go close the door (or your ears) to any noise outside. For the next couple of minutes you’re away for a virtual vacation… and we’re about to arrive in the Bahamas.

I hope you could take a break and relax for a while. I am trying to take it slow right now, just enjoying summer with my family and not many errands on my to-do list. I am not sure if we’ll travel, but just the fact that I don’t have to hear the alarm clock every morning is already a big plus for me. Summer is definitely my favorite time of the year!

Wishing you all a sunny, happy and healthy day!

    Paradise! Only a hurricane could make me want to leave…love everything about it! The bench seating built-in between the porch posts is so clever!

  2. The Enchanted Home said,

    Wow..I could almost hear those palm trees swaying! Amazing….love it. It is small enough to be manageable but big enough to entertain in, and I love the vaulted ceilings..I would have used more white inside, but its a winner to me!!

  3. Eileen said,

    I Just came back from vacationing in Bahamas. Love the relaxed vibe & colorful homes in pink & turquoise!

  4. Design Chic said,

    How quaint and charming. I love all of the textures and the art is wonderful! Hope you are doing well, sweet friend!

  5. Judy G. said,

    Love the clean lines of this coastal home. So refreshing to see some softer, warm neutrals used against the white (and a few lighter gray) walls. Still has a soothing coastal feel without the predictability of white with blues. Lovely images! Thanks for posting.

  6. Sam @ My Carolina Kitchen said,

    What a charming cottage and I especially like the use of the native coconut palms & driftwood as a table decoration.

    We lived in the northern Bahamas on a tiny private cay in Abaco for many years. I would love to know which island this lovely cottage is on. The surrounding look like one of the out-islands or a private cay. Maybe Eleuthera? Any chance you could share it’s location?

  7. Hi Sam,

    I was curious about that also! Please, try to contact the designer. She might be able to inform you!

    Thank you.


  8. jeanette said,

    I would also love to know the locale. Is it a private home or a vacation rental?

    Also, is there anyway to get the floor plan for this design? (just a simple plan even, b/c we are designing a future home and i love this layout)

  9. Hello Jeanette.

    Thank you for your comment! I believe this is not a rental. Please feel free to contact the designer for more information: http://www.laurahaydesign.com/


  10. Kim said,

    Beautiful. Love the layout and inspiration. Thank you for posting this lovely home. Always enjoy your blog.

  11. Shawn said,

    Delightfully charming!! Excellent use of space…very inspiring and inviting. Thank you for sharing…a mini-retreat right here!!

  12. Monica said,

    Gorgeous! wonder if it is a rental?

  13. carol rum said,

    I haven’t seen a better use of location, land, home design and decor in a long time. That property was absolutely perfect! Who wouldn’t be finding ways to clear ones’ work calendar so that you might spend more time in your beautiful retreat by the sea?

  14. KCarr said,

    Looks almost exactly like my house in VA which was built in 2011!

  15. Jack said,

    Fantastic house, but the beach is on the other side of the island, to the east… This is on Bay Street, overlooking i
    A beautiful bay, with no beach.
