North Palmetto Point cottage description

Imagine this -- Turtle Cottage as your own private oceanfront getaway: imagine yourself in an adorable, inviting cottage with everything you need for a relaxing vacation. The living room/dining room/kitchen is one big, open space, with beautiful light and high ceilings. The kitchen is complete with everything you need. The living room has comfortable furniture where you can snooze on the couch or just sit and veg. The spacious bedroom, with a King-sized bed, has its own view, big closet and an adjoining bath. Everywhere you look it's colorful, comfortable and roomy.

Imagine yourself grabbing a towel and walking down a short path to the Gazebo, where you can sit for hours and read a book, or watch the ocean. Imagine walking down the beach to the popular restaurant 'Tippy's' for lunch or walk the other direction and not see a soul for hours; or gather shells, watch the sandpipers, or -- think about it -- do nothing at all!

Imagine yourself going deep-sea fishing out of Gregory Town, or snorkeling off Potlatch Beach, or SCUBA diving where Jacques Cousteau used to dive, or renting a bike or a kayak and exploring, or trying Bone Fishing in back of Windemere. Imagine making a day of it, going sightseeing in Harbour Island, where you take a water ferry over, rent a golf cart and drive yourself around -- lunch on the beach and do some classy shopping, or buy yourself a sun hat at the Straw Market. Imagine driving to places called Tarpum Bay or Spanish Wells. Visit the breathtaking Cliffs, and then go to Surfer's Beach, where you can watch world-class surfers Hang Ten.

Imagine that -- and quickly, call us!

              • Non Smoking Only:

                  Owner info

                  Why the Owner Chose North Palmetto Point:
                  A place on Eleuthera has been in the family since the 60's, so it has been a big part of my life, and very dear to my heart.

                  The Unique Benefits at this Cottage:
                  Although right on the ocean,the cottage is completely private yet conveniently mid-way between Governor's Harbour and Palmetto Point Settlement. The Main House is nearby but still can't be seen, and there are no neighbors on the other sides. The beach is completely private, and the 360-degree views from the cottage are amazing. Morning coffee under the Gazebo, overlooking the beach and ocean is spellbinding. And sunsets on the cottage deck are even better. The rest of the world just falls away.
