Cotton & CoConuts is a 3 bedroom 2 1/2 bath home located on Lookout Road in Rainbow Bay. The view looks out over the Atlantic Ocean. The house is a 2-minute walk to Come N Go Beach. Steps leading up to a screened lanai invite you to the front entrance. Entering the home, the focal point is the spiral staircase to the cupola, which has spectacular views of the North Atlantic. This luxurious home has tile throughout and mini-split a/c units in the main area and in every bedroom. Bedrooms include a master bedroom with a king-size Tempur-Pedic mattress complete with en suite, 2nd bedroom is a queen pillow top ,3rd bedroom is a full size pillow top. Decorated with Island flair, this beautiful home is furnished with all the conveniences. The living area has queen size sofa bed with a 4" memory foam topper, flat-screen TV with satellite connection, wireless internet, and a docking station for your personal ipod.

The modern chef's kitchen has a granite island with 4 swivel bar chairs. Stainless Steel appliances in the kitchen include a French door refrigerator with water/ice maker on front, a ceramic stove top/oven with hood microwave, and dishwasher. The dining area features a 60' glass table with 4 comfortable chairs. Another high top dining table with 4 chairs is located on the screened lanai.

There is an Island shower with hot and cold outside on the ground floor for your convenience on returning from the beach.

Located on the first floor is the laundry room, where the 1/2 bath is located, as well as brand new stacked Maytag washer and dryer with utility sink.


Our water is collected and purified through an advanced closed cistern filtration/uv light system. Each faucet throughout the house is connected to this system. If water levels are ever low(never have been) in the cistern, we are connected to the Queens Hwy water, which also will flow through our specialized filtered system. This is a paramount solution to having fresh safe water on an island.

Within walking distance is Come N Go Beach, you can easily carry what you need for the day. On more adventurous days, when heading out, there are several beaches in the neighborhood of Rainbow Bay: Hidden Beach, Smugglers Beach, Twin Beach and Rainbow Bay Beach just to mention a few. There are 4 mountain bikes at the house, great for accessing local sights and beaches.

Amenities include air conditioning, WIFI, satellite TV, DVD player with video library, an outdoor gas grill. Equipment in the house includes snorkel gear, beach chairs, fishing rods and some tackle, cooler, and mountain bikes.

If you are looking for a smaller place for just the two of you, check out Sun Terrace (Top of the World!)#382731 on VRBO or #3001727 on Home Away. It's only a few blocks away and is great for just a couple(very private sun deck with shower).

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.

                                                                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.

                                                                Owner's Response:

                                                                Thanks so much for your stay and welcome back anytime.

                                                                Live like a local!

                                                                Kathy M.Cashiers, North Carolina

                                                                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!

                                                                Owner's Response:

                                                                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.

                                                                Owner's Response:

                                                                This house is beautiful, clean and spacious.

                                                                Loved it. Highly recommend this property. The owners were kind and helpful.

                                                                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.

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.
