Bahamas Sea Cliff Cottage is my artist island home built in Bahamian vernacular style similar to Loyalist Cottages built by boat builders 200 years ago. We have a large deck to enjoy beautiful views of rugged tall cliffs with a million shades of blue Bahamian waters that are in dynamic change throughout the day. Enjoy the sea birds and rich marine life below. The island has much to discover both culturally and in its pristine natural beauty. The views from our home are the best....each day brings dynamic changing, light, wind and tide on the Exuma Sound. There are truly amazing sunsets. The house is brand new with simple elegant island inspired decor. Some of my Daniel Caldwell isalnd paintings are featured. You can bicycle, walk, or go by car to local beaches to surf , snorkel or collect shells and sea glass which is a local favorite . Engage in the friendly Bahamian community which is great fun. Relax and unplug from busy world. If you like to read, write , sketch, or paint watercolors..... its a fine spot for this. There are several local style restaraunts and grocery stores near by. There is live music nightly at different venues up and down the island. Find out who is hosting the live music when you arrive. You can rent surfboards or Kyaks, or go fish with a local guide. Several places in Gregory town provide this. In Gregory town check in with local fish dock in town for fresh fish , lobster stone crabs or conch. Conch salad is excellent ask who is making it that day. Go to Pam's Island Made gift shop visit with Pam and see the creative talent of local artisans Pam included. Ida's Delights for Ice Cream or for her Grits and Fish in the morning. Good Fuel for the day! . Don't miss 'Laughing Lizard' for healthy organic grown lunch or breakfast as well as WIFI also see Ann at the Glass Window art and garden center next door for more island crafts and fresh local grown produce.

See Ann at Mr Bone's liquor store for cold beer and spirits

Rent Surf Boards & water toys at Surfer Pete's in Gregory Town or with Tom at Surfers Haven near surfers beach ...Tom also offers surf lessons and island adventure nature tours.

Book a fishing /dive charter by boat with Barry at Captain Z Fishing charters in Gregory Town cove.

Or go Handline fishing with local expert Basil. Great fun!! and you'll catch dinner.

A rental car is recommended and It is fun to day trip while there... pack a lunch and a cooler and head off. Here are a few things I recommend seeing:

Preachers Cave, The caves at Hatchet Bay. Gaulding Cay Beach, Surfers Beach, Tarpum Bay ,

The Island School . Eleuthera Lighthouse beach at very south end of the island.

Day trip 20 minutes north to fancy fashionable Harbour Island where you'll find Historic Dunmore Town with buildings dating back to 1700's. Harbour island is very walkable or rent golf carts. Iconic pink sand beaches fine dinning or casual dinning. You may also bump into fashion or movie stars. Please stop in to see my paintings at Princess Street Gallery. ' ask for Daniel Caldwell art' as well as other fine local artist showing there.

Ride down to Governors Harbour... 30 min south and see a bit of laid back old Bahamas with some elegant old homes downtown , hip beach front eateries and local style conch burger stands, small boutiques. There's live music certain nights of the week. Seasonal Fish Fry's on Friday nights with dancing in the streets.

Visit the beautiful picturesque community of Current 30 minutes north and bring snorkel gear to drift dive the tide in Current Cut . You' ll be thrilled to see amazing colorful coral lined walls and beautiful sea life.

Visit Spanish Wells... an industrious fishing community who are longtime ' Bahamian Crawfish' fisherman. See quaint pastel waterfront cottages ,fishing docks ,work boats and a unique culture.

Eleuthera is rich in art history.... American Master Winslow Homer painted here 100 years ago and many wonderful artist have followed suit. The island ,offers pristine natural beauty ,laid back and friendly Bahamian culture as well as a new twist ...the surfer / artist culture which evolved in Gregory Town over the last 50 years. This culture keeps great vibe going for those who get it. I will admit it's not for everyone....I've grown to love it and pinch myself to be part of this season in the islands history.

The Unique Benefits at this Cottage:
Remote quite , minimal simpler way of life , pristine beauty, fun surf on occasion. Plenty of social life or not.
