About Melisa Groff

I have decided to share the beauty of this Family island with others. Come visit my home :-)

Melisa Groff purchased this cottage in 2013

Why Melisa Groff chose Eleuthera

Rainbow Bay is a quiet, beautiful piece of heaven. Its amazing ocean views from each location constantly provide a changing view of the Atlantic & Caribbean oceans. The small community is a tranquil place where visitors are frequently seen walking throughout the area taking photos of sunrises and sunsets. The 4 accessible beaches allows for beach hopping without leaving Rainbow Bay. Rainbow Bay Inn & Restaurant provides a quick location for entertainment and meals when you wish to leave your cottage. This cottage is about 8-10minutes walking distance to Rainbow Beach; about 3-4mins from Come n Go Beach.

Rainbow Bay is also close enough to several island communities and other beaches to make exploring and day trips an exciting and easy excursion.

What makes this cottage unique

This brand new property has not had the wear & tear of many rental properties and can provide a spacious environment that can be ideal as a base camp for daily excursions and yet peaceful enough for mornings at home drinking coffee and evenings watching the sunset off the L shaped deck. The 8-10 min walk to Rainbow Bay Beach with its tiki huts is perfect for an afternoon of snorkling and sunbathing. Assistance with rental vehicle is provided if needed.

I just love this cottage.

  • 5 of 5

I like its access to Queens Highway, and to the beach. I like being up high off the ground, so the breezes are better and for the views that it offers. I like how clean the house is each and every time. The house is well stocked with beach supplies and kitchen utensils. The AC is nice on those very hot summer nights. The owner is very responsive to questions and helpful suggestions. Don't pass up this gem!

The house is clean, spacious, situated in a quiet spot with easy access to Queens Highway or the local beach. Nice view, good height for breezes, well stocked for cooking, plenty of beach towels, and nice gas grill for BBQ'ing. The owner was responsive upon emails.

  • 5 of 5

The process was smooth, comfortable and easy with Melisa. She was very organized and had all the details to us on time. Because of the villa, our stay was safe, quiet and peaceful. My wife and I had a wonderful time ! I would recommend this location to all. We will definitely rent again!
