About Josette Major

We are a Bahamian couple who moved from Nassau to Eleuthera in 2012 seeking peace and tranquility for our family. We have an established construction business where we love to make dreams come to reality with beautiful but affordable homes.

Josette Major purchased this cottage in 2013

Why Josette Major chose Rainbow Bay

A place to just settle back, unwind and relax in a comfortable and peaceful place for an affordable price. Located in a great place to feel fantastic Atlantic Ocean breezes, minimize the bug invasion and be central enough to go to any part of the island

What makes this cottage unique

We offer an inclusive service to our guests which makes your vacation planning easy. We offer a pick up service to and from the airport to the cottage and arrange a vehicle rental. We offer complimentary use of the kayak and snorkel gear to adventure offshore. We offer ourselves for any help necessary as being in a foreign place can often leave many questions unanswered. We are here to make this your best vacation ever.

Love rainbow Bay!

  • 4 of 5

We enjoy staying at Take Ya Time and come every summer. The location is very quiet and the nearby beaches are almost always empty! The owners are kind and always very prompt and helpful whenever issues arise.

Our favorite pastimes on the island are diving and fishing with our friends in Spanish Wells ( Underwood Charters- they are the best!!!) and Monday night pizza night at Rainbow Inn. Can't wait to be back in Rainbow in July!!!

Winter vacation

  • 5 of 5

We had a fabulous time at Take Ya Time. Eleuthera is a beautiful island to explore and after a day of exploring it was great to come back to the house where everything we needed was there. Josette and Delano were very good hosts and answered all our questions and gave us info when we needed. We hope to be back again before too long!

Comfortable, clean and good location

  • 5 of 5

We had an excellent contact with Josette and Delano. They are nice, very helpful and work hard to propose the best to their guests.

The house itself is well maintained and clean. We had everything we needed for cooking and the washing machine and dryer are useful.

On Eleuthera it is easy to find farmers selling fruits and vegetables, and fishermen selling fish.

Beautiful cottage and near one of our favorite beaches - Rainbow Bay

  • 5 of 5

If you are planning a stay in Eleuthera the Take ya Time Cottage is a great choice for the price. It is new, clean and beautifully furnished. I stayed with my husband and three children (16,14 and 8). Plenty of room for all of us and centrally located to many of our favorite beaches. The kitchen is very modern, so are the bathrooms and they had a washer and dryer! There were plenty of extra blankets, towels and they had things like dish soap, paper towels and washing detergent to get you started. We also loved bringing the kayak to Rainbow Bay.

Josette and Delano were wonderful. They made sure we had great directions and were willing to help arrange transportation though we had already rented a car (highly recommend in Eleuthera). One evening of our stay we were hoping to unwind with a family movie as they have a broad selection of DVD's. We had difficulty with the VCR so I emailed Josette within a few minutes Delano was at our door with a new VCR and got it hooked up in minutes. Just incredible hospitality.

Our family enjoyed reading the guest book to learn about other travelers adventures on Eleuthera and maps and book on local beaches was great too!

We will be back! thank you Josette and Delano

Car: recommended

Take 'ya' Time is situated between James Cistern & Hatchett Bay located on the Northern side of Eleuthera. There are numerous beautiful beaches and local restaurants to visit or perhaps a day excursion to Harbour Island or Spanish Wells to possibly do boating or deep sea fishing. Venture and drive from one end of Eleuthera to the next and visit all the of historic site locations, blue holes or caves.
