Nowadays, Malta is often described as a melting pot of culture and history in its own right, where all the diverse elements meet, mix and melt into one another to become the unique Maltese character.

Columbus Cove Open House

Columbus Cove, Love Beach

Columbus Cove, Love Beach, Bahamas

NASSAU, Bahamas (May 24, 2012) George Damianos and Virginia Damianos-Premock, the brokers and owners of Damianos Sotheby’s International Realty report a successful open house at the Columbus Cove, a private beachfront development at Nassau’s Love Beach.

Venturing out in the rain on Saturday, May 19, to the Open House at Columbus Cove, Love Beach, was a winning move for some. The first Purchaser won a Jet Ski. The second Purchaser won Furniture, and the third buyer won a Kayak. Prizes and Special Pricing were the order of the day bringing visitors out to look at the beachfront townhouses and garden view apartments or townhouses.

Together the developer and Damianos Sotheby’s International Realty sponsored the successful event with Realtors Richard Sawyer and Mark Hussey introducing visitors to the unique lifestyle that is Columbus Cove. The sound of the water lapping on the sand, the beautiful sunsets, and a swim every day or a workout in the gym is just what the doctor orders! There will be 33 townhouses lining the beach, with 24 garden villas overlooking a lushly landscaped pool with the beach just steps away. A 24-hour security gate gives residents security and peace of mind. All units have spacious balconies and exquisite finishes. The beachfront townhouses feature double car garages which can become a den/office or recreation room. Living on the beach or steps away is the lifestyle of most people’s dreams.

For the investor looking for an attractive return there are still investment opportunities available – beautiful furnished villas with leases in place. There is one completed beachfront furnished townhouse, presently rented. Also there are two beachfront townhouses to be completed November 2012.

Damianos Sotheby’s International Realty is pleased with the success of the Open House, and we want to thank the steady flow of visitors that were not deterred by the inclement weather.
