    Default In the Bahamas, a Beachfront Retreat

    A traditional Bahamian cottage with three bedrooms is on the beachfront of Treasure Cay on Great Abaco Island. It is on the market for $1.895 million.

    Love the view and the teal wall. I don't really like sparse furnishings, but this is way too busy even for me.

    Damn. That view. I'd live there in a heartbeat, it could have no furniture for all I care. Wow.

    I like it. I'd take the pictures off the wall and change some of the light fixures, but the rest I can live with.

    Hate the furnishing but since I would be on the beach 24/7, does it really matter? No.

    Yeah, most beach houses are just the four walls to me, I don't really care when the ocean is outside the door.

    Yeah, I'd need to change some of the furniture - it's too cute somehow, the decor tries so hard to be beachy instead of comfortable. But I'd be willing to put up with redecorating for the view and the peace.

    Too much furniture for me but the structure and view are really nice.

    i love that first picture because it's got a sort of mid century beach house look to it.

    This. And then you se the rest of it and it's such a letdown. Has potential though.

    I think my favorite picture is the second to last one. I really can't take the furniture in that place, it's claustrophobic. Plus, the thing about it being mid-century, there are so many cool things you could do with that.
