Rainbow Bay cottage description
Eleuthera, Key Lime Cottage is a fully-furnished two bedroom, two bath oceanview cottage with all the amenities needed for your comfort, including central air, satellite TV, telephone (internet service is planned to be added November or December 2013). The occupancy limit of this cottage is four guests, and this is a non-smoking home.
Key Lime Cottage is located directly across popular Rainbow Beach which is on the Caribbean side. This house is only one of a few vacation rentals near this lovely beach. Rainbow Bay Beach has beautiful turquoise waters and is excellent for swimming and snorkeling.
We have a wonderful local Caretaker who lives nearby and a friendly, reliable car rental resource (a car rental is recommended for the area).
Eleuthera is a laid-back island for those who want to escape the city, and is a great place to just relax and soak up the sun, or to just dine at one of the local restaurants. In the evening, enjoy the spectacular sunset.
How to Arrive to Eleuthera: Eleuthera has three airports, Governor's Harbour (GHB), North Eleuthera (ELH), and Rocksound (RSD). Most of our guests fly into Governor's Harbour (the closest) or North Eleuthera Airport (2nd closest).
American and United via Silver Airlines are only an hour's flight to Eleuthera from Miami or Fort Lauderdale, Florida.
From Nassau, Bahamas, you may take a 20 minute flight to Eleuthera via Bahamasair, Southern Air or Pineapple Air.
Bahamas Ferries has a ferry route from Nassau that arrives most daily to Spanish Wells to the north.
Transportation: Eleuthera is not a very populated island and is about 110 miles long and 2 miles wide at the widest point. Therefore, a car is highly recommended to get around the area to get to grocery stores, restaurants, beach-hopping, island exploring, tourist spots, etc.
Our Caretaker's friendly son rents out vehicles at a fair rate for the area, and for our guest's convenience, will generally pick up our guests at the airport and ride over with them to the Key Lime Cottage so our guests will know the directions on getting there.
Eleuthera Things to Do: We are fortunate to be so close to beautiful Caribbean Rainbow Bay Beach which is great for swimming & snorkeling. In addition, the Rainbow Bay area also has four other beaches on the Atlantic side nearby, and the island itself has miles of unspoiled beaches to experience.
Kayak rentals for your stay, fishing trips (bonefishing, deep sea, etc), snorkeling, diving excursions can be arranged. Just contact the owners or local caretaker and they will be happy to direct you.
Take a day trip north about 30 miles to either Harbour Island with Pink Sands Beach and tourist shops, or Spanish Wells - Russell Island, a fishing village with colorful homes and a beautiful beach.

Wonderful Cottage, location, and people
Wonderful Cottage, location, and people
We had an excellent stay at the Key Lime Cottage. The cottage is new, clean, and well-stocked with the necessities to feel at home as well as extra useful items for use during day-long beach trips (towels, beach chairs, beach mats, cooler, boogie boards, etc.) The beach is just across the street from the cottage, which is on a calmer, residential road. Rainbow bay is very picturesque, clear turquoise shallow waters great for snorkeling, swimming, and safe if you have young swimmers with you. Eleuthera itself is a place where you can experience Bahamian life, slow down, relax, and be in a truly picturesque setting without the touristy-scene. There are so many beaches to explore by car and the cottage is centrally located to all parts of the island. We must say that the people we met really treated us like family. The owner took time to explain the cottage's amenities and nearby services as we prepared for our trip and was very flexible to meet our needs. The cottage's caretaker, called us mid-stay to check-in on us and is a wonderful cook (fri/sat bbq at their home and/or ordering meals from them is highly recommended- delicious and a bargain). Their son manages the car rental and was also kind enough to help us with local travel arrangements during our stay. The only thing the Key Lime Cottage doesn't have is internet, which is perhaps a good thing if you are looking to disconnect during your vacation (there is a phone for local calls and that was very helpful). We found a great place with wifi in nearby Alice Town/Hatchet Bay called "The Front Porch" on the Queen's Hwy, but you do need your laptop or smartphone to connect. We enjoyed a few great meals there and nice views of the bay. The owners are also lovely people. Visit Eleuthera to experience Bahamian culture and natural beauty, and the Key Lime Cottage to feel truly at home. Great trip!

Owner response: We are pleased to hear from our guests and am glad they felt right at home and experienced that wonderful Bahamian hospitality. Eleuthera is such a beautiful island treasure. We hope they are able to make a return visit. On an additional note, the local phone company just upgraded internet services for the Rainbow Bay area, and the Key Lime Cottage is expected to have internet installed soon.
Excellent cottage with small dining area. Within a few yards of the best & safest beach in Rainbow Bay on the Caribbean side of Eleuthera. Very suitable for family of four or two adult couples. Close to one of the best restaurants on Eleuthera (Rainbow Inn).

Owner response: We appreciate the review from our Canadian renters, and thank them for their stay. Couldn't agree more about Rainbow Bay Beach--it is so beautiful there and the main reason we chose the location for this home.
It was absolutely wonderful! The house is adorable and you have thought of every necessary item! The caretakers were very attentative and we felt very much like we were visiting old friends. After riding around to several of the other beaches to explore, we all agreed that Rainbow Bay was the one we liked best. We were even treated to an actual rainbow over the beach viewed from the house on our first day there. . . We will definitely be back!

Cottage Far Exceeded Expectations! (guest's words)
We have rented cottages and apartments before for vacation accomodations and the Keylime Cottage was the best by far. It provided everything we needed, so that we had a comfortable home base to return to after enjoying the beauty of the beaches and the unsophisticated-in-a-good-way nature of the island. Perfect spot in Eleuthera! ·

We'll Be Back Soon.
Thanks for all, Tamara. We had a great time and the house is really nice and very comfortable. We had great weather, great snorkeling, and great food and drink (as usual on Eleuthera). It was really nice being right across from the beach - no loading the car just for an hour at the beach. Anyone with children would love it. Anyway, thanks again. We'll be back soon.

We loved the house & had the best vacation ever...
We loved the house & had the best vacation ever. We had great weather & covered more of the Island than I ever have in my 3 previous trips. The Stubbs are great people, Kean was great & the BBQ was delicious. We did our best to leave the house as we found it. We did not need to use the A/C, the washer & dryer, or the 2nd bedroom. You did a great job with that house & we respect that. We were out & about most of the time any how. Thanks again, we look forward to going back soon.

Perfect Family House
Perfect Family House
We stayed for a week at the Key Lime House on Eleuthra and thoroughly enjoyed our stay. The home was very comfortable and had all the essentials to make us feel at home. The home is very close to beautiful Rainbow Bay where we spent our days. We have two children ages 4 and 2. There was a very descriptive and informative book provided by the owners to help with our vacation. We would definitely return when we return to Eleuthra.

Great rental in Rainbow Bay
Great rental in Rainbow Bay
Key Lime Cottage is a lovely, new home just across the street from Rainbow Bay beach. With 2 bedrooms and 2 bathrooms, washer dryer, full kitchen, front deck, satellite tv, beach toys etc, this rental is a great choice for a quiet getaway for couples or small families. Very romantic for two. I have stayed in 3 other rentals in Eleuthera and this one is better equipped than any of them. Highly recommended.
