We had a lovely time at the Tamarind Tree cottage. It was extremely clean and well-appointed. One could really want for nothing at this lovely spot. The greatest thing was the feeling of the cottage being very private but enclosed on a wonderful little property with many flowers, pool, and a view of the cove. It was a very relaxing place to come "home" to after our adventures. The hosts, Kim and Terry were quite nice and always available to answer questions about the island. The cottage far exceeded my expectations. I would definitely go back in a heartbeat.

Would go back in a heartbeat

  • 5 of 5

Honestly, this trip was paradise. The property is a small community that affords as much interaction or privacy as you prefer and the hosts, Kimy and Terry, have an amazing talent for making you feel at home and welcome right out of the gate. I woke up the first morning and thought I heard the roar of air conditioners but no, it was the roar of ocean hitting rock. This sound will stay with us until we return. One other note: photos are exact - not misleading at all as they are with some properties. Everything is kept sparkling clean. Thank you Kimy, Terry and Morocco for a memorable time. Thoughts of this place will keep us warm in the cold winter months to come!

Wonderful cottage for couples

  • 5 of 5

The property sat on a hill overlooking a beautiful bay in Gregory town. Kimi and Terry were friendly and hilarious. They were available for anything you could possibly need on the island and therefore making the experience all the more enjoyable. We will definitely be back one day.

The real Bahamas

  • 5 of 5

My wife and I were incredibly lucky to find this property. It's clean, peaceful, relaxing and owed by two wonderful people.

Kimy and Terry are fantastic representatives of the Bahamas. There was truly no need for travel guides. They were able and willing to answer all our questions and guide use to beautiful and interesting locations.

True "Local Knowledge".

I have no doubt we will be back and bringing friends.

It gets better every time!!

  • 5 of 5

We have been to Kimy and Terry's twice now and plan on going back many more times. Tamarind Tree has everything you need to feel at home! We enjoyed a new adventure every day; exploring caves, a different beach every day, queens bath, bone fishing on the flats and even a little grouper fishing with one of our favorite locals! We enjoyed a few great meals out at Unca Gene's and Elvinas (both a short walk), but some of the best nights were spent grilling out on the terrace! The deck on the Tamarind Tree is perfect for morning coffee overlooking the beautiful pool and tranquil bay! There are several grocery stores within walking distance where you can find anything you need.

Edge of the World Properties is truly a one of a kind place, you will want to go back over and over again!

Eleutheras best kept secret

  • 5 of 5

I just have to say this is our second visit and it may have been better than our first! Both times we stayed at Edge of the World Properties and the owners make our stay so enjoyable. This property is nestled in a cove with three private colleges, pool, and many other great amenities. The cottages are brightly colored with beautiful decor and all the great necessities of home. This property has one of the most beautiful views of the island. I have to say this is one of our best secret finds while traveling over the past 25 years. Every day is a new adventure in Eleuthera with the endless beaches and friendly people. We now make it a point to visit as often as possible . Thank you!! C&T

Gorgeous - make yourself at home 🌴

  • 5 of 5

We've decided we're ​staying. Kimy and Terry don't know yet- sssshhhh! It's a surprise!

What a wonderful week we've had. The property is gorgeous, and big enough to explore- always something new to see. If you love being surrounded by plants, fruit and flowers, but have the convenience of an accessible store, or all other services, then this is the place for you!
