You are ON THE WATER. Walk out your front door and down the private walkway into the Caribbean. Swim and snorkel over coral reefs at water’s edge that are home to over 10 species of colorful tropical fish. A short way out is a broad sandbar 3 to 5 feet deep that is excellent for swimming.

Sip morning coffee on our dock at water’s edge and see the sunrise paint morning clouds pink, purple, and gold. Enjoy breakfast at the gazebo dining table. Relax in the hammocks. Grill your evening meal on our shaded veranda while you catch the cooling breezes and watch the sunset.

We provide four kayaks that can be launched from our sea walkway for exploring Rainbow Bay. Our four adult bikes will take you on miles of back roads on the scenic Caribbean and Atlantic coasts.

Rainbow Beach is a minute stroll away. Shallow and calm it is a wonderful beach for kids and adults and offers great snorkeling along the jetty. Relax under tiki huts with picnic tables and benches. We provide noodle floats, beach towels, beach chairs, and 2 boogie boards. It is a ten minute walk or short bike ride from Dolphin House to the Atlantic side of the island where you will find more beaches to explore.

Dolphin House offers privacy and year round comfortable living inside as well as out. Our huge veranda has comfortable seating areas, tables for dining that sit four or six, two loungers, a propane grill, and many potted plants that contribute to a cozy atmosphere.

Two of our three bedrooms have sea views and en suite bathrooms. These bedrooms are situated at opposite ends of the home with kitchen and living/dining area in between. This floor plan provides privacy and distance. The third bedroom with bath off the central hallway has a view of gardens front and side. Open the doors and windows and enjoy natural breezes from the Caribbean and the Atlantic. Ceiling fans and standing fans in all rooms contribute to additional air flow.

Just outside our veranda doors you can enjoy noodle floats, boogie boards, swimming, snorkeling, kayaking, hammock lounging, grilling, and biking without ever having to get into a car.

But of course Eleuthera offers so much more. Be sure to explore deserted beaches, local community shops and restaurants. Meet friendly people with welcoming smiles. Visit Eleuthera and Dolphin House. You will want to return.

Owner info

Year Purchased: 2005

About the owner: Retired couple. Spend 4 months a year at Dolphin House in various seasons.

Why the Owner Chose Rainbow Bay:
We discovered Eleuthera in 2002 when we were visiting a relative who had an island home. We loved the island, the friendly people, the beautiful deserted beaches, the warm Caribbean Sea and the dramatic Atlantic Ocean just a few minutes across the island. It was a quiet place close to nature without the distractions of crowded tourist attractions. We bought our beautiful home on the Caribbean Sea in 2005 and set to work immediately to make it more beautiful. We spend several months there each year in different seasons expanding the gardens and making improvements to the house. We are project people and we enjoy and take pride in making our home a comfortable and welcoming place to share with our many rental guests. Our daughter Kendra helps us to manage the booking process for Dolphin House.
