Property type cottage
Minimum Stay 7 nights


About the property

Cottage, 1 Bedroom + Convertible bed(s), 1 Bath, (Sleeps 2-3)

Nestled amongst the greenery and sitting thirty-five ft.above the turquoise waters with 'nobody' else around but you, sits the beautiful cottage aptly named ' Beside The Pointe'. The quietness is deafening, the ocean view in front of you is pure ecstasy, and the sunset embraces you as it disappears into the water.

You have no neighbors - only the birds -go nude if you wish. Between Palmetto Point and Savannah Sound, a mile off the main highway thru a greenery-lined track road sits your tranquil paradise- a perfect hideaway for honeymooners.

The beach and sea is 100+ feet down a staircase. Food stores and restaurants are 5 miles away, close, yet far enough away from your quietness.

One mile from Ten Bay beach; 18 miles to Governor's Harbour Airport. Relax in central air comfort with DirectTV. Enjoy the quietness and spectacular views.

Surpassed our expectations!

  • 5 of 5

We spent a wonderful week at Beside the Pointe cottage.

Everything was as promised and more. The cottage was clean and had everything we needed literally(we cooked in a lot). They even supplied gear for exploring the island, like kayaks, snorkel gear, floats, beach chairs etc. The property is immaculate and so beautiful, from the very private entrance and drive to all the plantings to the steps down to the beach.

Simply amazing! Keith and Sharon were wonderful hosts who were there when you needed them, otherwise you never knew they were around. Keith also set up jeep rental which made it so easy and stress free.

We spent time everyday on the beach right there at the cottage, never saw a soul. We also really loved Kemps Creek and Ten Bay, just minutes away.

We explored many other remote beaches with the guidance of an especially good Beach book. Luckily the cottage is centrally located on the island so each day you can head off in one direction or the other.

I would bring bug spray, skin so soft ,and 2 pair of water shoes(we wore out a pair each.)

We can't say enough about how much we enjoyed Beside the Pointe.

We are already looking at dates for our next trip!!!

--Favorite grocery... Cost Cutter in Savannah Sound (maybe 10 minutes away) by far the best

--Favorite bakery.... Govenors Harbor Bakery

--Go to Govenors Harbor fish fry on Friday night

--Eat lunch at Pammies in GH.... local establishment... best food /best price

Cracked conch with plantains and peas-and-rice

---Pizza at Mate and Jenny's is very good....

Couldn't be better

  • 5 of 5

Everything about this place was wonderful. The location with your own private cove, the proximity to many beaches, the nearby settlements for access to groceries, and above all the kindness and helpfulness of the Culmers. They go out of their way to see to it that you are comfortable and have everything you need to make your trip enjoyable. They are available to help with any questions but yet see to it that you have all the privacy you need. We snorkeled all around Lutra and found our cove to be one of the best places. Kieth will tell you the best spots. At the end of a long day of exploring it's like you get to go home to your own private little house in the woods.

Absolutely Stunning View

  • 5 of 5

My wife and I spent 8 wonderful days here and felt like it wasn't enough. The house was beautiful and exactly as described. Loved the color and decorations. Very clean and well kept. The bed was firm and comfortable. There is an outdoor shower that we discovered only a few days before we left. But I did use it. It was wonderful. We spent the majority of the time sitting on the porch looking at the absolutely stunning view of the bay. A bit of a walk down the stairs to the beach, not difficult but the calm Caribbean water was wonderful and worth it.

The surrounding grounds were beautiful. Keith was right next door, but rarely saw him. When we did, he was a pleasure to chat with. He always made sure we had everything we needed. Keith has such a love for gardening. We walked down along his garden admiring all the plants. Tomatoes, papayas, pineapples, limes, coco plums, coconuts and the beautiful flowers. He even offered us some of the coconuts. It was nice driving to and from the house on the well kept drive and looking at all the beautiful care he put into the property. Every time we came back to the house, I was just in awe of the view.

The house is centrally located in the middle of the island. Which was good for traveling to either end, and we traveled the entire island. Because of the time of year we did take a 5 minute ride to Ten Bay beach a couple times to watch the beautiful sunsets. Governor's Harbour is about a 15 to 20 minute ride to the north. Very nice town. There's a terrific little grocery store just 5 minutes to the south. And you have to visit 'The Ocean Hole' to the south past Tarpum Bay. And bring bread to feed the fish.

A previous guest graciously left a beach guide book. Thank you for that. The roads, or should I say paths to these beaches were quite an adventure. A SUV is recommended. We would have never found all the stunning beaches if not for this book and we visited 33 of them! Each was a little different. Some small, some a little rocky, some that went on for miles. All of the beaches we did find were absolutely amazing and the majority of them completely deserted. We felt like we had the island and these beaches all to ourselves.

Keith, thank you for allowing us to stay at your 'Beside the Pointe' home.

The house and island was Absolutely Stunning.

Simply Perfect!

  • 5 of 5

We stayed 10 days at the Hillside Cottage. Keith and Sharon are so warm and welcoming, they made us feel like family. The drive up to the cottage is gorgeous, Keith's love for gardening is apparent everywhere. The cottage itself is clean and well appointed, with a comfy King size bed and central air. The beach is very private, with a combination of coral and sandy spots. Gorgeous! If you stay here, I highly recommend to walk all the way down to the left side of the beach and snorkel along the coral wall. It was one of the best snorkels I've ever been on. We saw huge crab, and a little octopus on the underside of the cliffs along with a huge variety of colorful reef fish. Two kayaks come with the house and we used them daily to fish off of. The fishing was excellent, especially to the right of the bay. We ate a lot of grouper and snapper! Delicious! This was my third time back to the island and I have to say, this was the best place I have stayed at. I got choked up when we left! We will definitely be back!
