Looking across the clear turquoise sea on Grand Bahama Island's Fortune Beach, Shoreline is a stunningly beautiful, private, exclusive, gated community offering the Island's best real estate. Beautiful island-inspired architecture with a wide array of community amenities located just a short drive from world-class golf, shopping, restaurants, and nearby Lucaya casinos. Nearby Freeport, the Island's main town, provides good food shopping and everything else you may need. Spanning 26 tropical acres along a pristine coastline, Shoreline is the perfect community to call home.
Shoreline offers a host of community amenities:
Yes, there is an HOA at Shoreline consisting of 9 board members who are all current homeowners. The board oversees the running and maintenance of Shoreline and continually reports back to the homeowners. The term for an elected board member is two years, after which they must stand for re-election.

Shoreline has a robust rental market, although the HOA does not permit short-term rentals of less than three months.

As a result, the returns on investment are excellent, with annual returns as high as 10%.

These include household water bills, daily household waste collection on weekdays, painting the exterior of all houses every seven years, maintenance of all gardens and common areas, the sprinkler system, swimming pools and their maintenance, hot tub, tennis courts, clubhouse, gym, bar, common area lighting, security guards and insurance of common areas.
