Overview

About the property

House, 3 Bedrooms, 2 Baths, (Sleeps 6-8)

Ahhh...Kokomo in the Bahamas...dig your toes into warm, pink sand, laze by the azure blue water and feel the tropical breeze as you lay in the hammock or move to the rhythm of island life. Get here fast then take it slow. Kokomo is a comfortable home right on the beach. A large upper deck for sunning, lower shade deck with hammocks. Kayaks plenty of snorkeling equipment and toys to provide beach fun for all ages.

This home allows good privacy for 2 couples. Two bedrooms have king size beds, third bedroom has twin beds and bunk beds. All linens, dishes, beach towels, etc. are provided. Just bring your personal items. The snorkeling is fantastic with great reefs within easy swimming distance from shore. Very private area on 600 feet of beach. Additionally, the home is equipped with a 15,500 Kwh propane gas generator. It is powerful enough to run the whole house including the two large Air conditioning units. This will make the islands frequent power outages unnoticeable.

Notes:
Since we started having guest at Kokomo in 1993 we have listened to our guests and done our best to provide all the amenities to make you happy. Snorkeling gear, toys, bikes, kayaks, pool table, volleyball court, hammocks and lots of games, etc. Wi-Fi, stereo, land line phone and a Magic Jack phone for long distant calls. We will do our best to make your adventure to Kokomo one that you will want to tell your friends about and repeat in years to come. Additionally, we have installed a 15.5K Kwh propane gas generator. It is automatic and powerful enough to run the whole house and both air conditioners. We have city water and a reverse osmosis system on two sinks for good drinking water.

Amaizing

  • 5 of 5

Words can't describe how wonderful was our week in Kokomo house. The house has everything you need, I really mean everything; kitchen is fully equipped, all sizes of coolers for your day trips, books, games, a pool table, outside you have everything as well, the beach closet is full! Poolshoes, beach toys, snorkel equipment etc.

It was fantastic to wake up in the morning and have coffe in the amaizing balcony with the amaizing view. If you need a break of the sun you can still enjoy outdoors by relaxing in the lower patio, no need to bring chairs up and down stairs the house have plenty patio furniture in both levels.

The beach is just amazing, beautiful long beach. We swim, snorkel, use the kayaks in calm days, and body surf, it was just amazing!

The house is situated in central eleuthera so is easy to explore the whole island, we explore south in one day, and north another day and it didn't feel we had to travel a lot.

Last but not least Sandy was amazing, always answering our questions and giving us great tips.

We left a piece of our heart at Kokomo!

Wonderful relaxing week.

  • 5 of 5

We stayed 1 week at the Kokomo house, and plan to return. The home is spacious, had everything we needed. We rented a car for the week which was arranged by Sandy the owner. Everything went as planned. The home is on the Atlantic side of the island, so the water was a little rougher than the Caribbean side of the island. You can swim or snorkel or play on the kayaks. The beach in front of kokomo is also long enough to take a nice evening walk. We went on a fishing charter with captain Paul with Captain Joe out of Davis Marina, caught several fish including a Mahi-Mahi. Make sure you go to 10 bay beach. Lighthouse beach was nice, but the road there was very rocky. The people of Eleuthra are very very nice. Food is expensive from US prices.

Best. Vacation. Ever.

  • 5 of 5

Hard to put into words how great our week at Kokomo was. The beach and the patio overlooking the water was amazing. Plenty of toys to keep the whole family entertained: kayaks, snorkeling, beach toys, boogie boards, etc. Great place for kids with lot's of games and activities inside as well. House is a bit old and decor inside dated, but with that beach and location, who cares. We brought plenty of food with us and cooked at home most nights. You can survive off food from local grocery, but very expensive. Bring frozen meat with you! Tippy's was the best place to eat out. You have to make the hour drive south to Lighthouse Beach, unbelievable. Be sure and rent an SUV. Had a great time exploring this wonderful island. Will definitely be back! We loved the dogs that visited also.

TOTAL BLISS AT KOKOMO

  • 5 of 5

As soon as we arrived at KOKOMO I felt the stress and worries of everyday living just melt away. We vaca'd with a Community couple and although the house is set-up as 2 individual living quarters, we all seemed to only use the beachfront kitchen that went directly out to massive cement veranda with that stunning Mermaid sculpture.

We shopped, dived, snorkeled, kayaked, prepared scrumptious dinners, ate out locally, got to meet the Owners that I'd been e'ing for tips, etc. Fabulous couple.

If you go, there's a perfect, pristine beach as you leave KOKOMO and head out to Queens Highway, it has a sign on the left that reads: CrocoMama (next to old Military Base) and the beaches are literally the most gorgeous we've ever seen and we've been to many, many beaches.

The Owner equipped the house with everything you could possibly want; literally. It was SO MUCH BETTER than staying at a hotel. We loved the privacy and our own run of the beach and 2 dogs that show up faithfully to be fed and you could tell they loved their lifestyle....who wouldn't?

We're telling all our friends and may possibly be back to KOKOMO. It is just the perfect place to wind down

and forget all the busy. HIGHLY RECOMMENDED!

Picture Perfect

  • 5 of 5

We were looking for the perfect place for a family vacation as well as our 25th wedding anniversary and we found our slice of heaven at Kokomo. After seeing the photos we decided we wanted to renew our vows on the beach. I cant express in words how "picture perfect" it was. Not often do you find a property that is everything as described, but Kokomo is. The beach is breath taking and we hardly ever saw anyone else in 7 days. We snorkeled everyday right off our beach and it was like an aquarium. We were impressed by not only the quantity of equipment such as snorkels, fishing gear and kayaks, but the superior quality. We have a 19yr and 14 yr old boy and they were never bored. There is as much or as little to do as you want. The house has everything you need and much more. The towels were superior quality and plenty of them, kitchen was nicely equipped even down to cookbooks. We never were concerned about water quality because there is a filtration system at both kitchen sinks. Even the day it rained, we raided the games closet and played several games we had never even heard of and had a blast. Sandy, the property owner is fabulous. She answered all our questions prior to arrival and even called to see how we were once we arrived. There are plenty of resources to use in the house to determine your adventures. We loved the "Big White Book" which is filled with information on the local restaurants, excursion activities, bars, events and much more. I think Sandy has thought of everything to make your stay wonderful. Stanton, the caretaker met us at the airport with a huge smile and the keys to the house and our rental car. Our first stop was his daughter's restaurant, "Sweet Dreams". From the outside it looks just like a little house but the food was some of the best we had.His customer service as is everyone's on the island impeccable. They go out of their way to help you. Even the grocery store stayed open late the day we arrived so that we could shop. If you are looking for the resort life filled with high adventures, gifts shops on every corner and some stranger fighting you for a place on the beach, this isn't' the place but if you are looking a beautiful fully equipped home to enjoy the majestic pink sand beach and snorkeling right off of your back porch then book NOW! We can't wait to return.

Honesty

  • 5 of 5

During our planning for next years vacation, we came across Kokomo beach house. After sending emails back and forth to Sandy, we decided to send a deposit for the month of February. Unfortunately our plans fell through. We notified Sandy immediately, who said no problem and promptly returned our deposit. I can only imagine how frustrated we made Sandy feel, but I want to thank her for her patience and honesty. I hope in the future we have a chance to stay at your a lovely place..
