Property description

Welcome to our island paradise. This recently renovated and elegantly upgraded beach cottage is located in the quiet and serene area of Oleander Gardens just north of Gregory Town. Perched on a hill only steps from a peaceful cove, Bella Mare offers the ultimate in modern conveniences and some of the most beautiful scenery of the Bahamas. Take time out of your stressful lives and relax on our front porch. Enjoy the spectacular view of the Caribbean ocean and your worries will surely fade away.

A private beach is only 150 feet away so take time out to enjoy the sun and discover the wildlife while snorkeling in the cove.

Away from it all: Eleuthera - From the ancient Greek word for freedom. Freedom is what you can expect when you visit Eleuthera. Freedom from work, stress, and the pressures of everyday life. This island is truly a paradise away from it all. You are far removed from the glitz and glamour of the casinos of Nassau and the hustle and bustle of the big city. Take your time and enjoy sleeping in, snorkeling in the cove or enjoy the sunset from the porch.

The Island: Eleuthera offers 220 miles of coastline with countless sandy coves and isolated beaches with pure white and pink sands. The snorkeling and fishing are some of the best in the Bahamas. Bonefish can be caught by wading out in front of our house. Swimming and sunbathing are especially enjoyable activities due to the privacy of the many beaches. You can go to the beach and never spot another human being.

The Cottage: The cottage has been lovingly upgraded and decorated by the owners. It features custom made furniture covers, cushions, and window treatments.

Travel to Eleuthera: It is easy to travel to Eleuthera. You can catch a non-stop flight from from Miami, Florida or Fort Lauderdale, Florida, to North Eleuthera or Governor Harbor via US Airway, Continental Airlines, Lynx Air or Twin Air. You can also fly to Nassau and then on to North Eleuthera or Governors Harbor via a 20 minute domestic flight with Bahamas Air or Southern Air.

From Europe you can fly straight into Nassau via British Airways or Virgin Atlantic.
Another option is to travel to North Eleuthera, or Governors Harbor via fast ferry from Nassau. That trip will take you 2 hours.

Owner info

Year Purchased: 2009

About the owner: We are a couple from North Carolina who have been fortunate enough to find our own little slice of heaven in this island paradise. We enjoy spending as much time as we possible can in Eleuthera.

Why the Owner Chose Gregory Town:
We were looking for a place that was "away from it all" yet close enough where we could travel here in just a few hours. Since the Bahamians are some of the most friendly people that you will ever meet and their islands incredibly beautiful it was a clear choice for us.

The Unique Benefits at this Cottage:
We upgraded and furnished the house to our own taste. We wanted to make sure that it was the way we wanted to live when we went on vacation, not just another rental with window air conditioning and wicker furniture. The kitchen is very modern and features everything for your cooking needs. It also has stainless steel appliances and countertops with Indonesian river rock. The house has central air conditioning for your convenience. The bedrooms feature one queen bed and two single beds with premium pillow top mattresses. Our bathrooms are tastefully decorated with Indonesian river rocks and Italian marble. We offer high definition TV with DVD player. The house was tastefully decorated by the owners who hand made all the window treatments, pillows and cushions.
