                          Year Purchased: 1999

                          About the owner: Jessica and I live in northwestern NJ. She's the city girl and I'm the country field mouse. I'm an avid scuba diver and golfer, and she's the consummate traveler, cook, and voracious reader. Her roots go back to Sevilla in Spain while I've been in NY/NJ most of my life. I'm the author of The Beach Book, Eleuthera, Bahamas edition.

                          Why the Owner Chose Ten Bay Beach:
                          This was the second home I tried to buy in Eleuthera. I fell in love with the island on my first visit. After failing in negotiations for a place in Eleuthera Island Shores I was lucky enough to come across an ad for this place in the back of Islands magazine. The rest is history. I've since opened up my own vacation rental business, which I operate in my spare time, and recently completed publishing my first book on the beaches of Eleuthera, which has made the #1 Best Selling Bahamian Travel Guide list.

                          The Unique Benefits at this Cottage:
                          Most of our guests love the vibrant color of the water evident from every room of the house and on the huge deck. I've always been partial to the wide open feeling of the cathedral ceilings coupled with its location. Great swimming, snorkeling, beaching, and caving all without having to get into a car.
