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 Rainbow Bay
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 new property truly feels like home 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 loved my stay at Cat Nap!
I recently returned from my stay at the cottage on 4/23/2018. I highly recommend it. The cottage had everything you need, was clean & was nicely decorated. Melissa responds very quickly to questions & suggested a car rental company. She even brought a new coffee maker immediately when I notified her that the coffee pit was cracked. It is a gorgeous island with beautiful beaches and friendly people. I would definitely stay again. Thanks Melissa!
Perfectly charming getaway home!!
If you are traveling to Eleuthera, do not look anywhere else but Cat Nap in Rainbow Bay!! This very spacious home will make you feel right at home while visiting this amazing island! Windows everywhere you look, beautiful hardwoods, huge kitchen, washer and dryer and amazing views! It’s so peaceful here and very easy to access. Close to many of the islands breath taking views. The direct tv was a nice perk for those nights when you just want to relax. Melissa came over and brought us fresh produce and brand new beach chairs!! It was great to meet her! Treat this perfect rental home like your own so many others can enjoy it like we did! We will be back for certain!!!
it was great to meet you guys. Thanks for being so easy to communicate with and for keeping the house in great condition. Hope to see you again next year
comfy and clean
We cooked and enjoyed the family with the open floor plan. We enjoyed coffee on the deck in the morning along with the view and fresh air. We have stayed multi times and like to call this place home.
it was great to see you again and look forward to your next trip home :)
Lovey place to stay
The weather could not have been nicer this time of year. The house was clean and approx mid way to all sights and beaches to see. Eleuthra is a very quiet island and a great place to go if you're looking to relax. The only thing that was missing was beach chairs but overall it was clean and a nice place to stay.
I'm so glad you enjoyed your stay. The weather was pretty good for you :) I'm sorry you did not find the beach chairs. I found them in the garage leaning against a wall to the side of the kayak. The previous guests must have left them there when checking out. I hope to host you again at Cat Nap or in Spanish Wells
As always Melisa and her beautiful home wasperfect. My rental car guy flaked on me at the last minute and Melisa with her local knowledge was able to get us a replacement and on our way to enjoy beautiful Eleuthera in short order and we were on our way once again. Thank again Melisa for your southern hospitality. Stayed here with family and couple and can’t beat it!!!
