"My family of four (my husband, two teen aged children, and me) stayed for a week in early April and had an absolutely wonderful vacation. I love the location of this rental because it's directly on a safe cove that is perfect for swimming, snorkeling and kayaking.
The bay-side location provides a lot of entertainment as you sit and watch from the balcony - fisherman, people from town coming for a swim, occasionally giant fish swimming by, etc. The rental house also sits near some great places to eat (we loved Unca Gene's!), get groceries, bakery goods, beer/liquor, and nearly everything else you need.
The kitchen was very usable and provided everything you need to make food during your stay. Local cookbooks available in the kitchen helped me figure out how to fix the fresh grouper we bought from fisherman on the dock across from the house. The hosts were AWESOME. They were available to give advice and answer questions but left us alone to explore and relax.
A stay at this amazing place is not for everyone. If you are super picky about how updated a rental is, this is not for you. If you have trouble with the unexpected or can't roll with flow, this is not for you. However, if you can successfully turn on "island time" and love the amazing experience of staying in a local town with real people (NOT a resort!), always looking out on a beautiful turquoise cove, then this is perfect."

"We booked while onsite on Eleuthera, we were into the cottage within minutes of finding it online. The owner Dave and his caretaker Johnson are incredible!
This cottage is outfitted with high quality fixins, the beds, linens, cutlery, cooking utensils, pots and frying pans, even the knives were great. Often some rentals throw in junk, but not the case here.
Couches comfy for curling up and reading a book or if you must, and I admit we did.....turn on the T.V. High speed internet and WiFi were good. There was also a local cel phone available for our use too.
Rainbow is a great location and this cottage is a gem. The Atlantic breezes were wonderful, we did not turn on the air conditioning in our bedroom....didn't even consider it.
The extras of the snorkle gear, beach things and the extras in the house were very helpful.
We loved the area. And founds some nice eats in J.C too...local foods. We had stayed closer to governerners Harbour in the past but not next time, we will be back to Indigo Seas....
Thanks Dave for saving our vacation!!!!"

"We do realize that this review is a loooong overdue...
Please, excuse our lateness. We spent a wonderful week or so at this house. It was our first trip to Eleuthera and the Bahamas. We loved the place and the whole Island so much that we going back there this coming Spring. We are sorry we could not get to the Wish house again, as it is already booked. We would love to go back there again..
Honey and Jim, thanks a lot for the unforgettable vacation we had at your place. The house is great, the location is awesome! We loved kayaks, long early morning walks along the beach (no people there). The beauty of the Atlantic Ocean there is unforgettable...you cannot see ocean like that anywhere in the US.
We brought bottles filled with beautiful pink sand back home. Our kids were thrilled to be at the Island. People there are like your best friends, even though they don't know you. We can see now why you chose the Eleuthera and the Double Bay. Everything was great and there are not enough beautiful words to describe our stay there!
Once again - Big Thanks!!!
Grace, Greg, Gabi, Pat and Alex B."

"We absolutely loved the home, the water, and the views. My husband did not even need to go to the docks to purchase fish for dinner, he caught 2 large Nassau grouper and a snapper right off the side of the back porch. I do recommend being adventurous and explore all the side "dirt roads". You will be rewarded with a spectacular, secluded, pink sand beach at the end of each and every one. The key word is "adventurous"! My husbands family came from Tarpum Bay, Eleuthera and we were able to make several contacts with long lost relatives on the island!"
