About Matthew Simon and Kim and Jason Menefee
We purchased a lot and built our dream home on Eleuthera completed in April 2010. We travel back and forth from Southwest Florida as frequently as possible, staying for 3 months in the summer. Eleuthera is that Peacefull Paradise we long for. When we cannot be there we want others to be able to experience and make there own memories on this incredible island. So look no farther, we invite you to spend time at our house.

What makes this House unique

A side by side stainless refrigerator with ice maker, goes through yet another filter on the appliance itself.

Beautiful, comfortable home
We cannot say enough good things about this property. The house was beautiful and well decorated. Every thought to your comfort was here. The beaches on the island are beautiful, and the snorkeling was great. Everyone we dealt with during the rental process was helpful and easy to work with. We truly enjoyed our relaxing stay here.
Thanks so much for your stay and welcome back anytime.
Live like a local!
Cotton and Coconuts is a lovely property! You are in a residential area with very friendly neighbors and the owners, Sam and Rosie are super friendly and a wealth of information!
There are many, many great things about the property: the comfortable beds, the very large and adequate kitchen, the screened porch, but if you have ever been to the Bahamas, you know that drinking water is a premium...this house has a super filtration UV system that allows you to drink the water! This feature alone can save you a ton of money!
There are beach toys, chairs and kayaks, although we only used the beach chairs.
The house is in the middle of the island, facing the Atlantic which you can hear crashing on the shore! A short drive to Rainbow Beach or a 15 minute ride to the beach at CocodiMama which is worth the trip.
Just a note, Rainbow Inn has their famous Pizza Night on Monday’s and Thursdays as well as the best steak on the island! Governors Harbor is about 30 minutes south and has all the conveniences, such as banks, groceries, etc.
We loved our 10 days at Cotton and Coconuts...including the neighborhood watchdog, Luke, an island “Potcake” who is absolutely well mannered and a delight as well!
Thank You Kate & J.R. for renting Cotton & Coconuts! We're so happy you both enjoyed yourselves on Eleuthera! We value your positive review, and hope you consider staying here on any future travels you may have.
Beautiful home, decorated with coastal theme in great location!
My husband and I could not have been happier with this house. Updated and decorated well. We only used the master bedroom but it was very comfortable. The rain shower was awesome. The care taker, Mike, was attentive and nice. His wife works @ Rainbow Inn and she was great too! Everything you could need was provided in the house. Central location made it easy to get around and there are several beaches in walking distance. Internet and electricity worked 95% of the time which is above island expectations. No little critters moving around the house like other island houses that we rented. The owners responded quickly to all emails and provided valuable island information. Also, there was no issue getting our security deposit returned. All in all we would highly recommend this house and if we are lucky enough to visit Eleuthera again I will be sure to book this rental.
Thank you for your stay and do come again.
This house is beautiful, clean and spacious.
Loved it. Highly recommend this property. The owners were kind and helpful.
Thank You for your stay and kind review
What an amazing house on an amazing island!!!
The house was beautiful, well equipped, and the owners are splendid!!
Great house, good location.
Stayed here for 10 nights. House has a fully equipped kitchen, dishwasher, great fridge, microwave etc. Plenty cutlery and crockery, glasses, cups etc. Beach towels and towels were also provided as well as toiletpaper, dishwasher tablets, detergent, trash bags. Rainbow beach is very close by and is a nice small beach with shallow waters. TV worked fine, many channels to choose from. Governor's harbour is about 15 miles from the property.
Wifi proved to be unreliable, could often not connect mainly in the evening and weekends, probably because these were peak times and the island network was overloaded. One day there was a power failure on the island and we had no power and water (water supply runs on a pump system) for 4 or 5 hours.
Overall we had a good stay and would certainly stay here again.
Sea glass has become quite the thing in jewelry and Come & Go is one of the best sources you will ever see !!!! We have a lot of gear for snorkeling and surfboards and kayaks are available in Gregory town. Hatchet Bay Caves offer over a mile of exploring with great formations and a cool break if you get too much Sun.
