Indigo Seas is a tropical, secluded two bedroom, two bathroom cottage overlooking the Atlantic Ocean. There is a guest house on the property with a third bedroom and bathroom available for rent if you need more space. The basic rental fee covers up to four people staying in the main cottage. There is an additional guest fee of $20 per person per night for the fifth and sixth guests which allows you access to the guest house. The cottage is approximately 250 feet from the water, and elevated by about 70 feet, providing a spectacular, 180 degree, unobstructed view of the ocean.
Situated on Ocean Drive in Rainbow Bay on the island of Eleuthera in the Bahamas, there are many beautiful beaches nearby, including Rainbow Bay Beach on the sheltered 'Caribbean' side of the island. Rainbow Bay Beach is one of the best beaches on the island, is calm and shallow, offers great snorkeling, and provides shaded picnic tables and benches. Indigo Seas is also within walking distance of the Atlantic side beaches Smuggler's Beach, Hidden Beach, Twin Beach and Come & Go Beach, and chances are good that you will have all of them entirely to yourselves. Ocean Drive is a quiet, scenic road that runs parallel to the ocean for several miles, perfect for walking or jogging.
Indigo Seas has front and back decks to enjoy the fantastic, panoramic views of the ocean from James Point in the South to Harbour Island in the North. You can relax on the deck and watch the cruise ships go by. The island is only a half mile wide at this spot, so you have easy access to both the Atlantic and Caribbean sides.
The front door opens onto an open plan kitchen and dining area. Beyond is the living room, connected by french doors to the full width back deck overlooking the Atlantic Ocean. The master bedroom off of the living room has a full view of the ocean and both bedrooms have cross breezes from ample windows on two sides and large ceiling and floor fans. The house is furnished with natural wicker that stands on a varnished plank floor. Large overhead fans accentuate the tray ceilings throughout the house. All your living is contained on one floor with three step access from the driveway to the front deck and front door.
The house is connected to town water and also has a 10,000 gallon rainwater cistern under the deck as a backup water supply. Water outages are not uncommon in the out islands so a backup water supply is essential.
