Even though words do not do it justice below is our attempt!

  • 5 of 5

To explore was the plan for our recent trip to Eleuthera, Bahamas. The journey began with the choice of accommodations. Prior trips to exotic locations had us at resorts which, upon recollection, have them seemingly blending into one. The only identifiers were the excursions when we were thrust into the native land experiencing what the island had to offer. It became obvious – spend our time on location experiencing what the island had to offer.

We decided upon a quaint cottage at the Edge of the World Properties situated in Gregory Town, Eleuthera. Beginning with the booking confirmation, we became members of an elite group – family to Terry and Kimy Johnson, the owners. We were added to a private Facebook group where we had access to not only the owners, but others who have stayed before us.

There were three accommodations to choose from and we chose the Seahorse cottage. The photos confirmed this space to be ideal for our journey’s wants/needs. The cottage contained only two rooms – a half bathroom and a great room containing a queen bed and a kitchenette with every need met for cooking our meals. We had the option of two showers, both outdoors, one with only cold water and another supplying hot water.

What at first seemed odd, we were instructed to simply ask upon arriving in Gregory Town, how to find “Terry and Kimy’s place” and we did just that. This was our first introduction to the incredible hospitality of the locals.

Kimy, Terry, and Morroco (their dog) greeted us, Terry gave the grand tour. The cottage was exactly what we had anticipate, and then some. Our explorations took us all over the island, but we would spend a lot of time on property as well taking in the breathtaking view of the cove and witnessing many gorgeous sunsets from the private dock.

We were mostly prepared by reading comments and asking questions of the hosts and prior visitors. We learned that packing food was a must as food can be costly if you choose to eat out. I recommend experiencing the local cuisine but, if on a budget, cooking is the solution and our cottage had almost every necessity to do just that. We also learned that there are bugs to endure, but only if you’re lucky. I endured, my friend never had a single bite.

This vacation became a new standard by which future trips will be planned. An experience like none before; I cannot wait to return as so many have over the 27 years that the Edge of the World Properties has hosted paradi

Peaceful Paradise

We had an amazing stay at The Seahorse Cottage! Kimy and Terry were very attentive to our request and gave us the VIP treatment. The cottage is so adorable and the view from the front porch can't be beat. We also loved having the pool onsite. It was a truly relaxing vacation and we can't wait to return!

Beyond Expectations!

  • 5 of 5

My wife and I were visiting Eleuthera for the first time. She found Kimy and Tery and we were not disappointed! The property was beautiful. It was well-maintained and had a gorgeous view of one the coves in Gregory Town. The cottage was clean, spacious and offered beautiful views of the cove. The air-condition worked well. We took advantage of the refrigerator and fully-stocked kitchen to cook every day. We also used his charcoal grill to cook freshly caught seafood we bought from the local fishermen. We used the pool daily to cool down after a long day of exploring. We had no problem using the Wi-Fi poolside to listen to music while we relaxed. Throughout our stay, Tery (Kimy was away) was an extraordinary host. He made sure that we were comfortable and had everything we needed. We will definitely stay here again, the next time we come down to Eleuthera

THE BEST EVER!

  • 5 of 5

This was simply the best in every aspect, so much so, I'm not sure where to start! Kimy & Terry were friendly, welcoming and accommodating. I traveled here with my 14 yr. old daughter and her friend. We stayed in the Seahorse Cottage. Everything was neat, clean & offered whatever you might need for a weeks stay. If we needed anything, Kimy & Terry were responsive & jumped right in.

The island of Eleuthera is amazing simply, quiet and friendly. We never felt out of place or unsafe in any way.

I will say the island isn't for everyone. There are no fast food restaurants, nightclubs or high rise buildings. There isn't nightlife of dancing and partying. If this is what you like, this island isn't for you, but if you seek peace, quiet, remoteness and a sense of being, make your plane reservations today.

We spent our week discovering the island. There was lots to see and do in this aspect. My girls had a great time and weren't bored. They appreciated the nature, the fruit trees all over Kimy & Terry's property and the overall sense of the island, so much so, that on our way home as we spent a night in Nassau, the girls commented on how loud, populated and touristy it all seemed.

If you want your kids to step away from the Internet, cell phones and all the distractions of life in the U.S., I can't recommend a better place. There is Wifi and internet here, but if there weren't we would have certainly been fine without it.

All week I've thought of our wonderful trip, what it is that intrigued me so and asking myself, how soon can I return?

So, if you're thinking of this, go now.. you'll be glad you did.

Owner's Response: Thank you for choosing our Seahorse Cottage for your trip to the Bahamas! We loved having you and the girls stay with us. It was a pleasure to have you all and we are always happy when our guests are happy! The notes the girls left for us in the cottage were so precious. We will never spend the two dollar and fifty cent tip they left for us and have saved their adorable letters. Come back anytime...... you are always welcome with us.

Perfect

  • 5 of 5

Couldn't have asked for a better introduction to the Bahamas.

- Accommodations: nice sized cottage, well equipped, nicely decorated with great character. Fantastic double doors that open up to a big deck overlooking the cove. Loved starting the day off every morning overlooking the water and the town. Couldn't have asked for more.

Location: Centrally located on the island where day trips to the north and south we're very doable. The perfect launching pad to explore the island. Plenty to see and explore in the immediate area around Gregory Town as well if you're not up for driving around the island.

Terry and Kimy: They own and live in one of the cottages on the property. Perfect hosts. There when needed to provide tips regarding exploring the island, great energy, really made us feel comfortable during our week stay. At the same time gave us enough space where we often felt like the only ones on the property. Looking forward to spending more time with Terry and Kimy on our next stay. Keep up the fantastic work!

-James
