About the Property
Cottage, 1 Bedroom, 1 Bath (Sleeps 2)
Owned by two artists, Seaglass Cottage is full of art. With handmade furniture, water color paintings, and lots of creations made from findings on the beach, the atmosphere is just right for a real beach house. Here you will find plenty of reading lamps, a king size bed, a fully stocked kitchen with everything imaginable needed for cooking, and a full size bathroom with tub. If you prefer, shower outside in the outdoor shower with a lovely palm frond roof.
Swimming and fishing is excellent. There are several beaches in the neighborhood. Because each side of the island is different, if the water on one side of the island is too wavy, just swim on the other side. Rainbow Beach, located on the Caribbean side, is about a 2 minute drive from the house. During summer months, swimming is excellent in the Atlantic Ocean and there is no finer swimming hole than Hidden Beach. The beach has pink sand and beautiful seashells which you can collect. There is also seaglass!
Eleuthera has several good restaurants and take-aways. Rainbow Inn, only five minutes from the house, has a variety of offerings. If you prefer to cook at home, there is a wonderful view of the water from the kitchen island. Enjoy the water while you prepare meals. You can buy fresh fish from the dock in James Cistern (about 10 minutes from the house).
Our gardener, Louis, lives on our property in a small apartment. Leo is very unobtrusive and respects guests' privacy to the utmost. You can call on him should you need help with anything. Our caretaker, Merci, lives in Palmetto Point and is just a phone call away.
All linens are provided. The house is self-catering. Please bring your own dishwashing soap, handi-wrap, food items, coffee filters, etc.
Please take a look at our website for detailed information about what you will find in the house.
To get to Eleuthera, fly either directly to the island from Ft. Lauderdale or Miami, or fly to Nassau and connect on either Southern Air, Bahamas Air, or Pineapple Air. All of the above mentioned airlines have websites for booking flights. Another choice is the Bahamas Fast Ferry. Nassau is about 50 miles from Eleuthera.
Fly into either Governor's Harbour Airport (GHB) or North Eleuthera Airport (ELH).
GHB is about 25 minutes from the house. ELH is about 45 minutes away.
It is best to secure a rental car prior to your arrival. There are 110 miles of beaches in Eleuthera which most guests like to explore. There is also a beautiful botanical garden - The Levy Plant Preserve - located on Banks Rd. in the Governor's Harbour area.
Eleuthera is quiet, serene, and beautiful. Research the island before you visit. The atmosphere is very laid back. Most islanders are on island time and the pace of life is very slow. Eleuthera is a lovely destination!
If you can't make it as far as Eleuthera, we own a charming treehouse (near Camden, SC) and a waterfront lakehouse on Lake Wateree (also near Camden). The VRBO listing numbers are 273075 and 471878.
PLEASE NOTE - A $70 CLEANING FEE IS REQUIRED AND MUST BE LEFT INSIDE THE HOUSE UPON DEPARTURE. We charge a 200.00 fully refundable damage deposit. Check in is at 3:00 p.m. Check out is 11:00 a.m. WE ONLY ACCEPT PAYMENTS THROUGH PAYPAL OR PERSONAL CHECK.
7 day minimum rentals are required. We do not rent the house for partial weeks unless your dates extend beyond one full week (ex: ten-day rentals).
Also, my son-in-law, Scott, handles all of the reservations. He will be happy to help you.

Eleuthera has 110 miles of beaches! Each one is different. Furthermore, because the island is so skinny, hopping from one side to the other is a breeze. If it's wavy on one side, swim on the other. You can explore beaches, caves, small settlements, and Governor's Harbour. There are beautiful historic buildings in GH and the Levy Plant Preserve is located nearby on Banks Rd.
About: My husband and I own several unique properties which we rent as vacation rentals. We love Eleuthera, having discovered the Bahamas twenty or so years ago. We love Seaglass Cottage and are grateful for the time we are able to spend on the island.
Why Rainbow Bay, Eleuthera, Bahamas:
Seaglass Cottage is just a short walk from the beach. It's nice to be able to run down to the beach; return to the house for a snack; return to the beach. When you're close to the shore, you can observe the water and the sand at different times of the day. It changes a lot!
The Unique Benefits at this Cottage:
There is usually a stiff breeze blowing from the east. That is a real advantage for not only does it cool you and the house, it shoos away the insects. Also, on the Atlantic side, the view of the cruise ships far off in the distance, especially at nighttime, is quite enchanting. If you like to observe ships in the distance, do bring a good pair of binoculars with you.
