Tom Scheerer’s Abaco Abode

Two-hundred yards from a sheltered stretch of sand sits a designer’s dwelling said to have been originally sketched on a napkin slip. Designed from start-to-finish by famed interior designer, Tom Scheerer, this Bahamas beachfront beauty is best suited for travellers in search of a touch of seclusion on land and at sea, even on the fishing flats. Dressed in Scheerer’s signature style, the series of small buildings are separated by six pavilions, complete with connecting courtyards. This child-free zone is the perfect parcel of paradise in which to vacation with a group of friends who create their own fun, or a couple or two.
