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.

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!

Gets better every time!

  • 5 of 5

This was the second time we stayed at the Edge of the World properties, trying the treehouse this time. The covered deck was the best place in the Bahamas for morning coffee and bird watching! Kimy and Terry have made their property a haven for people and God's creatures to enjoy. We enjoyed the treehouse, but would caution anyone who has trouble maneuvering that the bed is in a little close quarters to get around. Otherwise the kitchen was great and having a 1/2 bath was a plus. Reminds us of up scale camping in Northern Wisconsin! Kimy and Terry always have great suggestions for things to do on the island, that is if we want to leave their little piece of paradise! If you are game to relax in a beautiful spot that might not have all the amenities of a resort, the Edge of the World Properties is the perfect find. We can't wait tomreturn for the third time!

Simply Fabulous!

Our stay was a taste of paradise! Life was simple- determined by the sun and the wind. Kimme and Teri are gracious hosts at their beautiful property. I recommend it to all needing time away from their everyday world.

Owner's Response: We absolutely loved watching your son run to the water each day ....... your family was such a delight to have with us. "Island Time" in the sun was just what you all needed. Please back soon Gail, Mark & Ryan. You are always welcome here. Your Island Family, Kimy, Terry & Morocco (missing his buddy Ryan :)

Hillside garden overlooking the cove

  • 5 of 5

If you are the kind of person who wants to get away from resorts, and have a bit of adventure then look no further. The Tamarind Tree is a serene little garden cottage perched above Gregory Town cove. It is clean and comfortable although a bit small, with 1/2 bath inside and two outdoor showers to choose from (one heated). My 14 YO daughter loved the loft bedroom upstairs, and I liked cooking in the compact kitchen. The real attraction is outside of course with an amazing deck (yes - hammocks), a beautiful plunge pool overlooking the lush garden with a path leading down the hill to the private dock on the cove. Geckos, anoles, frogs, insects, and birds all abound as well as citrus, avocado, papaya, pomegranate and other fruits. You will want to slow down and soak it all in.

Kimy and Terry are attentive and knowledgeable hosts. Don't be afraid to ask them anything (specially about their garden). Gregory Town is a small fishing community that has a couple of restaurants and shops. Unka Gene's always has seafood on the menu and has a nice deck outside. Peter runs a surf/seafood shop next door - it's a good place to buy seafood to cook at the cottage. 7 to 11 and the Discount store have some food items, but the pickings can be slim.

Eleuthera is amazingly beautiful, but you have to earn it on some tough roads. You will need a car to explore beyond the town - the roads are rugged and a tough vehicle is recommended. Bring snorkel gear if you have it - if not there are places where you can rent some. Surfers Beach is nearby and has a good break, but can have rough conditions at times. Lighthouse Beach is a full-day trip from G.Town. Start early (its very much worth it). Closer by is Gaulding Cay if you need a swim. Don't forget to try the kayaks at the cottage too - there are some amazing rocks and coves just a short paddle away.

It doesn't take long to fall under the spell of this island. I miss it already!
