Perfect vacation, perfect cottage

  • 5 of 5

This cottage is at the end of a long bumpy ride of a road and so worth the trip! Bottom harbour waters are very calm and we saw so few people for the week we stayed. the cottage has a house next door but so much privacy and it was sooo quiet except for the sound of the causarinas trees swaying in the wind.

There are plenty of toys here; paddle board, two person kayak, "lounge chair" floats, snorkel gear, noodles and other floats.We felt like we had rented out the entire harbour and the cottage! In the bay around the corner is a beautiful swimming hole and small beach at low tide just beautiful! There are also several beaches at low tide across the bay that you can walk to or swim. So many turtles, shells and conchs. There was a boat at the end of the dock that was our personal water taxi for dinner over at Harbour island that has many great restaurants. It is a beautiful sunset boat ride of 10 minutes and when finished dinner just text the driver and he picks you up, how easy is that. We went exploring two of the 8 days and each time just wanted to stay at this cottage for the day it is that peaceful.

If you sleep on the right side of the bed you can see the water from your pillow, ac is in the bedroom and such a waste because the soft low breeze was plenty with the ceiling fans and open windows. The sound of the lapping water was incredible. The bedroom is upstairs in a loft like room with high ceilings in white and blue. There is also a bathroom upstairs, no shower.

The bathroom downstairs has gorgeous tile, shower and is very large with three windows and much privacy. It is an open floor plan living and kitchen with full fridge.

The Cove resort at 15 minutes away had a great restaurant with excellent food, service and beautiful grounds, need to visit this place for sure.

For reference we are frequent visitors of Bermuda and st John but without the luxury. We love outdoors, scenery, quiet, hidden gems, meeting the locals and privacy. We had it all here. This was by far one of the best vacations we have ever had. The weather was mid 80's during the day and low 80's at night with very little wind and no rain.

The cottage is about a 15- 20 minute ride from the airport which is very easy and simple to get through. The car we rented was clean and in good condition and seamless to rent.

Thank you to the owner for renting out this amazing cottage and sharing with us, I hope to come back next November.

Secluded getaway, nothing short of paradise

  • 5 of 5

My girlfriend and I stayed 8 days at this private vacation spot and the only flaw we could find in our trip was the fact that we had to leave. Waking up every morning to the sunlight streaming through the windows and stepping out onto the dock overlooking a crystal clear bay seemed like a dream. The breeze running through the cove keeps you cool while you kayak, sun bathe or swim with the sea turtles right off the dock. On the one day we caught a little rain, the high speed wifi and cable access kept us entertained until it passed. The trails around the point were great for walks and runs, although I would recommend a morning or evening outing as the sun takes a lot out of you throughout the day. The kitchen had every appliance we needed (full size fridge, oven, stove, microwave etc.) which allowed us to cook and eat while we watched the sun set on the bay. Although there is only one bedroom, the downstairs area has couches and plenty of floor space for an inflatable mattress if you are wanting to bring your kids. For those looking for some night life, the local restaurants and bars are a short drive away and a water taxi to Harbor Island is a simple $10 roundtrip. We loved every minute of our stay and will certainly be returning in the near future.

charming cottage on turquoise bay

  • 5 of 5

Sea Bean Cottage is at the end of a quiet lane, fronting on Bottom Harbour, a vast sandy bay. The dock is well-built and takes you out onto the bay, where you can watch the rays and turtles glide by (some very large, some with stinging tails.) Behind is a mangrove lagoon with crystal clear water that you can visit with the unsinkable kayaks. The only immediate neighbour is the Air Cottage. 200 meters in the other direction is the Bottom Harbour Club, where Leo serves up lunches and drinks. The cottage has everything anyone who is escaping a big city would need: plus the uncivilizing influences of good wifi and a TV. Water supply was no problem. Yeah, there's some no-see-ums that went after my wife but never bit me. (We have no explanation.) There are small, friendly barracuda, those long pipe fish that sometimes jump out of the water, another fish that digs a hole in the sand, and one pokey blowfish that poked around. And there's some bits of coral to the west that have a surprising number of reef species. A lemon shark passed by one day; a rarity - and there's a harmless nurse shark under Bob's sailboat, which is about half-a-mile out. Bob, whose father farmed strawberries in South Florida, can help fix things and give you weather warnings. Vicky is very attentive. She's out on the point.

A wonderful, other-wordly (if you're from Vancouver like us) wonderland. I sensed Wes Anderson's presence in the eagle rays' passage. And I imagine if Graham Greene visited North Eleuthera, he would have stayed here.
