Once you rent our cozy cottage in Rainbow Bay on the island of Eleuthera, Bahamas you'll want to return to this island of natural beauty and warm, friendly people. Tranquil Seas is a comfy smoke-free cottage (smoking allowed outside) with Indonesian decor and bamboo matting on alternate walls/ceilings, tiled counter tops, Bali wood doors and bamboo trim. A full separate laundry room is an added bonus that you don't find in many vacation homes on the island. We have completed lots of upgrades to the cottage that we know you will appreciate.
There is a master bedroom with full bath and walk-in closet at each end of the house providing privacy if you wish to share the cost with friends, as well as an outside shower. Each bedroom has flat screen tv with dvd player. Flat screen in living room with dvd player and satellite programming, DVD player in one master and DVD player built into tv in other master. It is perfect for families or couples who want to share the cottage and the cost, also great as a romantic getaway, Eleuthera is a wonderful place for couples because intimacy is easily obtained; no crowds, no jet skiis, no speed boats or people trying to sell you things on the beach. It's the perfect place to do as little or as much as you wish.
It is one of very few properties on the entire island with incredible panoramic views of both the Atlantic and the Caribbean side so you can sit on the front porch with your morning coffee and watch the sun rise and sit on the back porch in the evening with a frosty cold island drink and watch the sun set. Leave a window open at night to catch the soft breeze, the sound of the surf. See the cruise ships lit up in all of their glory cruising the Atlantic out front. Wake up to views of the sea without lifting your head off of the pillow. Gorgeous wide open water views from every room, you can see both seas at once from some rooms in the house.
Large front porch runs full length of house, use rockers or deck chairs to relax and enjoy the view of the calm Caribbean side or the more dramatic Atlantic side. We also have hammock chairs and hammocks which can be used. Back porch has deck chairs and a view of the calm turquoise which words can't describe.
Because of the close proximity of the ocean, cross breezes keep the cottage cool plus there are ceiling fans in each room and air conditioning for warm days/nights. Short walks will take you to 4 beautiful picture-postcard secluded beaches, each with it's own unique beauty. Two sea kayaks are included for unlimited use during your stay at no extra cost which is a big bonus since the kayak rental fee on the island is pricey.
The cottage is centrally located to enable you to explore north to south more easily. We provide everything that you need to take a picnic lunch or you can eat at one of the many restaurants up and down the island. There are quaint little shops to browse in and even a cinema showing the lastest films. You can rent a surfboard in Gregorytown and you will see a very good variety of sea life while snorkeling. The area immediately south of Current cut is one of the best places for snorkeling/diving ever. It is not unusual to see stingrays, squid, spiney lobster, many parrot fish, angelfish as well as lionfish, turtles and dolphins. Eleuthera has the best beaches in the Bahamas and you may not see another person while enjoying the sand, surf and sun since Eleuthera has an abundance of them.
Car rental is about $450 per week and we can give advice on booking flights (the closest airport is Governor's Harbour). You can fly direct from Ft. Lauderdale with Silver airlines, from Atlanta with Delta or from Miami with American Eagle.
