Most peaceful place on earth

  • 5 of 5

Starfish cottage is adorable. The view around the property is to die for and you could go an entire vacation without it being spoiled by tourists. We would kayak around the island, snorkel with stingrays, and cliff jump with locals without ever having to wait in a line! Anything you want to do, the owners know someone who can help you do it! The owners are the absolute friendliest, most caring individuals you will ever meet.

I stayed here a year ago! The cabin was perfect and the grounds idyllic. Kim and Terry are easy going and friendly and can direct you to anywhere on the island. The beaches are exquisite and there is as much or as little as you want to do.

Simply THE BEST Honeymoon

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I stayed at the Starfish Cottage for our honeymoon. We had an absolutely wonderful experience. Kimy and Terry, the owners, are so kind and helpful to all their guests and truly care about your experience in Eleuthera. They provided countless suggestions and advice catered to our individual requests. They helped us secure a rental car for the week and pointed us in the right directions to find the most beautiful beaches and the best restaurants. The cottages and grounds are beautiful, clean, and well maintained. The pool area is absolutely beautiful and provides a perfect place to relax and unwind. If you are looking for a relaxing vacation, a place to disconnect, rejuvenate and reconnect, look no further than Kimy and Terry's cottages.
