About the property

Beautiful Cottage With Private Beach And Beautiful Grounds.

Double Bay beach cottage is right on the dune, just steps away from the water. Built in the 1940s, it was the very first structure on Double Bay. The porch provides lovely views up and down the beach. A great place to read, have lunch or relax with a rum punch.

The cottage consists of a living room with kitchenette; a bedroom with a queen size bed, bureau and a nook with shelves, hanging rod and hooks; and a small bathroom with shower. There's also an outdoor shower at the back door, thatched Bahamian style.

Amazing little get away.

Very secluded. Barely saw anyone else on the beach. Great weather and amazing swimming right out the front door.

Beautiful ocean view in a rustic beach cottage.

  • 4 of 5

This lovely cottage on the beach was exactly what we needed. The sea breezes all day and night were cool and pleasant. Sitting on the porch looking at the water was heavenly, and having the beach to ourselves almost the whole time was wonderful. The outdoor shower was refreshing and convenient after spending time on the beach.

We had fun exploring the island, but always looked forward to getting back to our own quiet little oasis on the beach. Clarice made us feel right at home. She checked on us to be sure we had everything we needed, and brought us some amazing Bahamian food to sample. She was always available, but gave us our privacy throughout our stay.

Our eight night stay went by so quickly that we were amazed. We can't wait to go back to Eleuthera and would love to spend some time on Double Bay again in this charming cabin. It is truly one of a kind!

Very nice place in paradise!

Like last year, the experience in Senza Nome was amazing. Without Clarise's help is the place not the same!

Serene, relaxing, beautiful

  • 5 of 5

Couldn't have asked for a better vacation- all possible because of this perfect little spot. A sweet, comforting, clean home for a week, right at a clear, clean beach- I never tired of the view!!

Thanks for sharing such a special place!

The greatest vacation ever!

  • 5 of 5

It's so hard to even begin this review. That's probably why it's taken me so long to write it! My BF and I stayed the week of April 1-8, 2017 for his birthday week! First and foremost, the cottage is absolutely everything described and then some. The pictures don't do it justice as the cottage has been updated with new linens, and there is even a day bed in the corner of the living room which is absolutely perfect for reading! It was so nice to just get away from the busy metro life! I've never gone 7 days without a TV before and I can honestly say, I didn't even miss it! There's something so magical about being able to walk down to the beach at night and just lying in the sand looking up at the stars, to falling asleep every night to the sounds of the Atlantic waves crashing outside. *NOTE* Please do as the manual says and close the windows every night and run the A/C for about an hour to chill the house -- sandflies AKA "can't see ums" hate the cold! We failed to do this, and I was eaten alive by sandflies yet my BF didn't get once (clearly I'm the sweeter one of the bunch!) Everything was perfect! The location, the owners (they were in town that week), the city, the island, the people, Clarice (she brought us some yummy goodies!) *FYI--(we didn't know this) Clarice will gladly come cook you a home cooked Bahamian meal if you ask her or want her to! The people of Eleuthera are like no other people I've ever met! I don't know if it's because it is such a religious country, or if it's just because they are living in paradise and are just extremely grateful, but you won't find nicer people than on this island! As soon as we left, I knew I wanted to come back and to even buy property there! Things to do: do not miss an opportunity to go hang out with Julius on a Fishbone tour (we tried to do 2 but the waters were too choppy for the deep sea fishing)! He's an awesome host and a pleasure to hang out with. Lighthouse Beach...skip it. It's a beautiful beach but it's just a beating to get to when all of the beaches there are beautiful. There's just so much to do but all in all, the best part is just relaxing and admiring the beauty and the people. Thank you so much for opening your wonderful home to tourists! We will undoubtedly return for another vacation of a lifetime!
