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.

Your own little piece of paradise!

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I just returned from celebrating our 25th anniversary! This cottage is pure bliss! Quiet, beautiful and so relaxing. The beach is all yours most of the time. Loved sitting on the deck relaxing in the ocean breeze. Great time at the Friday night fish fry and live music on Saturday at tippy's. Can't wait to return to this little piece of paradise!!

All of our expectations were exceeded!

  • 5 of 5

Let's face it, these days it can sometimes be difficult to trust a picture on the internet. When we decided to honeymoon at Senza Nome, having never been to Eleuthera before, we were mildly apprehensive. But we were absolutely pleased at how charming and beautiful this property is. It truly is only steps from one of the most beautiful beaches on Eleuthera. Senza Nome has everything you need to make your stay memorable, and it is the perfect size for a couple.

Fantastic Getaway

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I thoroughly enjoyed our stay at Senza Nome. The pictures do not do this location justice. The beach is breathtaking, and this house is by far the best location on the beach. We visited Island Farm several times for groceries throughout our stay and enjoyed sunny beach days with tasty rum drinks, and quiet evenings cooking meals, sitting on the porch listening to the waves. If you are looking to get away from the hustle and bustle, this is the place. We saw a total of 5 people on the beach throughout our entire stay, with the exception of Bizzy, the friendly neighborhood dog that joined us for some porch sitting and swimming in the ocean. He was probably our most favorite visitor, aside from the lizards and hummingbirds that roam the property. It was as if we had the whole beach to ourselves. Clarice the housekeeper brought us some delicious treats from Governor's Harbor Bakery which was so sweet and the perfect dessert. Go get the cinnamon rolls and fresh bread from Island Farm...they are to die for. Lisa was extremely accommodating and prompt with her responses. We definitely plan on returning, and hoping to make this a yearly trip.

The picture does not do this place justice. You are so close to the ocean. It is very simple and beautiful. Super breeze in the cottage. We didn't use air-conditioning. Long walks on the beach everyday. Nice shells at the south end. Very quiet. No people. Internet was excellent for email. Loved the outdoor shower.Btw Cocodimama is closed. Tippy's has music on Wednesday and Friday.

Fabulous vacation!

  • 5 of 5

We very much enjoyed our stay at Senza Nome. The accommodations were great. Right on the beach. Perfect for daily walks along the beach. We swam in front of the cottage too. We saw very few people each day. We enjoyed trips to the island farm (about 5 min drive north right off the hwy) where we bought produce, wine and liquor. If we had it to do again, we would bring a bag of food, coffee, etc. as it’s very expensive on the island (everywhere)! Senza Nome is about 15 minutes drive to Governors harbor where groceries, etc can be purchased. We made a day trip across the road to the gulf side, down south on the hwy about 5 minutes to Ten Bay (I think it’s called). A rough road, but a nice change on the calmer gulf side where water is shallow and many people go to hang on the beach and sand bar. We took the kayak (only one paddle for double kayak) and goggles over there, but I wish I had brought my own snorkel gear because the goggles were pretty much broken/leaky and there was no snorkel and two pairs of flippers. Oh well! We still had a great time and didn’t mind missing out on the snorkeling since the beach at Senza Nome was all we truly needed for our week of pure bliss! It was not our honeymoon, but we kept calling it that because it sure felt like it.

Also, I very much appreciated Lisa’s flexibility in helping us reschedule when my husbands grandmother fell sick and died. She allowed us to re-book our stay and we are so grateful she did! Very much enjoyed our stay, thank you for a week of relaxation!

Come spend a relaxing week or two barefoot on Double Bay, one of the most beautiful beaches in the Bahamas. Right in the middle of a spectacular two mile pink sand beach with great snorkeling, Senza Nome offers privacy and tranquility yet is just 20 minutes from historic Governor's Harbour.
