About the Property

House, 2 Bedrooms, 2 Baths, (Sleeps 4, air mattress available)

Explore this Bahamas Out Island from our brand new home just completed in Spring, 2011. You will find plenty of room to enjoy your stay in Bonefish Cottage’s 1,900+ sq.ft. with its bright, cheerful, airy Caribbean atmosphere. Built by one of the leading local contractors, the island-style cottage will surround you with high quality workmanship decorated with all new wicker furniture and tropical-motif upholstery throughout. The two bedrooms (one with queen bed, the other with twin beds) and two baths are separated by a great room that includes a fully equipped kitchen, sitting area with flat screen TV, dining area with glass-top table and chairs, and a pantry with ample storage space and stacked washer/dryer for your use. But perhaps your favorite part of the house will be the over-sized front porch with its own wicker-furnished sitting and dining areas where you can begin your day outdoors with your morning coffee and end it gazing at the stars with your favorite rum beverage.

Bonefish Cottage is located on appropriately-named Panorama Road with views of both the Atlantic and Caribbean. Large sliding glass doors on both the ocean- and sea-facing-sides of the house let you enjoy the views and the breeze from our ridge-top location. To compliment the sea breeze, you will find ceiling fans throughout the house and air conditioning in the bedrooms.

Only 15 minutes north of Governors Harbour Airport, Bonefish Cottage is in a prefect location from which to explore Eleuthera. An Atlantic and a Caribbean beach are both within walking distance and a short drive will get you to more pink-sand beaches, prime snorkeling, productive bonefish flats, and what many consider the best surfing in the Caribbean. Restaurants and basic groceries are minutes away.

We originally came to Eleuthera for the bonefishing. We will be glad to provide information on guides, tackle and places to go if you are interested. Now we come to stroll on the island’s countless beaches, collect shells and sea glass delivered by the waves (Bonefish Cottage’s library includes several reference books on both for your use along with “Elusive Beaches of Eleuthera” to get you headed in the right direction), snorkel in the gin-clear water (basic gear provided), explore the back roads to discover yet another beach or cliff-top vista, dine on the unique local restaurant cuisine or cook up a feast back home in your kitchen (lobster, stone crab, conch and grouper are a few of our favorites you can purchase right off the fisherman’s boat), learn about the island’s fascinating natural history and visit with some of the most friendly people you will find anywhere in the world. We have not tried the surfing yet but Surfer Pete in Gregory Town can fill you in on the surf breaks and provide rental equipment. Do all this and whatever other island activities you wish to experience from the comfort and convenience of Bonefish Cottage. But be warned – you cannot do it all on your first visit. We will look forward to welcoming you back to Eleuthera and Bonefish Cottage!
