Bahamas Life – When You Need to Simplify Island Living
Welcome to life in the Bahamas. It’s an island Paradise but because it is an island nation it comes with its inconveniences and limitations which, if you have lived here for any period of time you probably have already experienced. Bahamas life can become exasperating at times because of the difficulty in obtaining goods and services that are readily available in the States, Europe and most of Asia.
Sometimes those inconveniences can be categorized as annoyances like not having easy access to your favorite gourmet foods but other times those inconveniences can take on a far more serious nature. When you discover that some of the materials used to build your home are not suited for the tropics, are rotting, warped or bug infested and you need repairs, inconvenience does not seem to be the proper descriptor for the situation.
When you own Bahamas property you face certain challenges by default. Because you live on an island and because of local culture and governmental protocols you will find that getting what you want and doing what you want to do can sometimes be seriously hindered unless you know how to navigate the system in place.
Getting power to your island, building an airstrip, finding contractors that know how to build in the tropics, mitigating the frequent brownouts that can damage your electronic devices and oh yes…getting your favorite Beluga caviar can turn your place in Paradise to something less than you desired.
You Need a Friend in the Islands
In essence you have moved into a new neighborhood, one that is completely alien to the one you left. You need someone who knows how things work locally to fully enjoy the spectacular beauty and climate of your new residence. Windridge Olen Export is that "friend in the islands" for a select group of clients with substantial holdings in the Bahamas.
We can find and deliver anything you need from gourmet food for your pantry to having an airstrip built for your plane. Although based in Fort Lauderdale we are permanent residents of the Bahamas by virtue of our investments in the islands and have an intimate knowledge of the business culture and national and local governmental protocols.
Our backgrounds as a real estate developer in both Florida and the Bahamas and my experiences as a licensed Commercial Pilot and USCG 100 Ton Captain have allowed us to develop remarkable resources worldwide. Whatever product or service that you need, imported or local, we can deliver and we can deliver imported goods doing our own clearing of customs for our clients.
