Holiday Rental House
Directly on the ocean, a rare chance to rent a newly restored, antique British Colonial Vacation House, in Salt Cay. With spectacular ocean views to the west and calming salina views to the east. The Half Way House is situated, in the heart of historic Balfour Town, in walking distance to 2 restaurants, a grocery store and the island dock, yet secluded and private. Newly restored, with great attention to quality and detail, the house offers beamed ceilings, ship knee supports, wood lined walls and multiple large shuttered doors. In keeping with the original origins of the house, it is decorated with antiques, and historical tropical decorations. The house is elegant and stylish, and abounds with comfortable lounging areas indoors and out.

The house is elegant and stylish, and abounds with comfortable lounging areas indoors and out. Read in the ocean front gallery, or relax on the east veranda, the house and grounds are private and spacious. Enjoy your morning coffee on the ocean side covered patio, watching the sun glint off of the water, or upstairs, in the great room, catching the views of both the sea and salinas, while the sensual, tropical, trade winds, breeze through the house. The Half Way House is designed to captivate, charm and relax you. The island of Salt Cay, is rugged, beautiful, and individualistic. While it has the popular activities, such as beaching, diving, snorkeling, biking, and touring, it offers much more. The pristine beaches, azure colored ocean, deep, starry nights, 18th and 19th century Bermudian buildings and ruins, fill the soul. Salt Cay can be magical and enchanting, it appears suspended in time, untouched by the modern circus of large, orchestrated, corporate resorts. The island of Salt Cay is one of the last holdouts of the old Caribbean, no Club Med here...tranquil, peaceful and serene, from the free roaming donkeys and cows, to the warm and welcoming locals, the island is all about individuality and character.

About the neighbourhood
The Half Way House is very well located on the island of Salt Cay, within walking distance of the harbor and restaurants. Expect an out of the box vacation, with very accommodating and friendly locals, free roaming cows and donkeys, fabulous beaches, an old harbor swimming hole, incredible water vistas and historic ruins, all on a rustic Caribbean Island, very much the uncommon Caribbean.
