How to Create Your 9-to-5 Escape Plan

How to Create Your 9-to-5 Escape Plan

On Bahamas

Alarm clocks, traffic, meetings, daily planners…

Eventually the daily routine starts to wear on all of us. You’re working hard to have a nice life, but at some point you realize that your “means to an end” has to have an end to justify the means.

In other words, it’s not worth grinding it out in the rat race of life if you never leave the race to enjoy the fruits of your labor.

What you need is a 9-to-5 escape plan, and we have just the solution.

The ultimate escape plan is owning a vacation home in a location you love. One that you can escape to anytime you want on a moment's notice.

Below are 3 steps to choosing the right home in the right location to help you relax and recharge anytime you need to get away.

1. Decide what lifestyle you want

Imagine you could be anywhere in the world right now, doing whatever you please.

Where would you be? What kind of lifestyle would you want to experience?

Do you want to escape to the mountains where you can get cozy in a log cabin and hit the slopes every day?

Maybe a house on the lake just outside the city is more your speed.

Since you're reading this, we're going to go out on a limb and guess that you're just like us and our residents -- you want to escape to paradise!

If that's the case, Schooner Bay is the perfect community for you.

Our version of paradise includes:

  • Oceanfront homes
  • A full-service marina
  • Miles of unspoiled beaches
  • World-class deep-sea fishing and fly-fishing
  • Snorkeling and diving in some of the most beautiful, unique locations

Plus, our harbour provides an excellent jumping-off point for a day of island-hopping throughout the 700 islands of the Bahamas!

2. Find a location accessible from home

As you plan your escape from the usual routine, you'll want to consider how easy it is to get away.

Even though Schooner Bay feels like a world away, it's actually not too far from home for most people who live in the U.S. Whether traveling by air or sea, getting to our harbour village is incredibly convenient.

Schooner Bay is located on the island of Great Abaco in the Bahamas -- only a short 1-hour flight away from Miami. Marsh Harbour, the transportation hub of Abaco, offers daily direct flights to a variety of major cities in the U.S.

Schooner Bay is ideal for those who want to escape to their vacation home frequently without wasting days of time on airplanes.

3. Choose the right property for your family

"We pride ourselves on helping home-buyers identify the ideal home for their family, even if that means they don't buy a home from us. We feel this is why we have such a strong community of home owners at Schooner Bay.-Chris Williams, CEO of Legacy Global Development

The first consideration is how much space you need.

If it's just you and a spouse, and you're just looking for a place to relax in between your daily adventures, you might find that our 1-and-2-bedroom condos have all the space you need.

For bigger families and people who want to entertain guests, our 2-and-3-bedroom villas might be more suitable to ensure that everyone has their space and privacy.

Another consideration is the overall design of each home, as well as its features.

While our luxurious condos and villas offer effortless resort-style living, authentic Bahamian style, and high-quality finishing touches that please even the most discerning buyers...

Our one-of-a-kind custom homes offer an incomparable experience for those who desire nothing less than the best.

However, the only way to appreciate our community and to know for sure if one of our homes is right for your family is to visit us in person for an unforgettable Discovery Stay.
