  • PARADISE!!!

    "My husband and I spent 9 days at Beside the Pointe and it was absolute paradise. The cottage exceeded our expectations and the owner takes excellent care of the house and the property. The cottage was very clean and looked like it was brand new. The gardens were spectacular with papayas, mangos, bananas, pineapples and beautiful flowers everywhere. The owner was so nice and helpful in all aspects of planning our trip and he has really thought of everything. He provided snorkeling gear, kayaks, a fishing spear, fish traps and even a cell phone. We loved the secluded outdoor shower with a view of the Caribbean. The screened in porch was an excellent spot to relax and read after a day of playing. The snorkeling at the Pointe was unbelievable and my husband caught fish for dinner almost every night. We never saw another person in the bay. The location and seclusion of the cottage and the spectacular views of the bay make me wish I was still there. We will definitely stay here again!"

  • A great destination for a large group and adventurous souls!

    "A spacious home which had the perfect floor plan for a large group. The bedrooms lined up on the left hand side of the large hallway, and the living areas separated by this hallway to an open kitchen,/living area. It is not fancy(a bit shabby in a couple bedrooms), but has enough staple, decent appliances and sturdy household items to be functional--we found the ice-maker especially convenient! The bedrooms were comfortable and spacious. The living areas were furnished with a generous amount of seating, although the cushions are a bit tired--we flipped and fluffed and it worked. A newly remodeled bathroom made the 1/2 bath look shabby. Outdoor living areas was beautiful, just a few steps to the water, via steep concrete steps, and a sandy area at which we enjoyed the 2 beach chairs provided (could use a few more chairs). The caretaker was contacted in order to get the use of the chairs locked in the basement, and the 4 kayaks promised- the most fun adventure (besides the prop plane ride from Nassau) I had! There were also 2 pedal bikes, but they both had flat tires and there's nowhere to go anyway.The kitchen had a smell of mouse urine and some droppings in the cabinets & numerous wasp nests outside(one of the kids got stung)--there was only an empty bottle of wasp spray under the sink, however, and the caretaker, although helpful in informing us the telephone was broken (it was fixed on "Island time" 4 days later), and able to help us figure out the fan/light configuration and get us batteries for the empty remote-controls, was informed of the nests, did not attempt to treat them during the duration of our stay. Screened room was a great place to relax on the swinging love-seat. The island: no street signs, stores are unmarked with indiscriminate hours of operation, numerous restaurants and local watering holes where the drinks are generously strong, Island prices ($$$). we brought and cooked our own meals 90% of the time--everything but fresh fruit and veg are ok to bring through customs. 4-wheel drive down a road to a remote beach to see a wreck, &the beach was strewn with plastic debris and trash burns on a daily basis. gems: Tippy's bar, French Leave restaurant. Talk to the locals at the roadside tiki hut bars, great way to learn tips. Bug spray: no-see-ums will get you! Best bread: Island farm, a short ride south. $5 water taxi to Harbor Island, $50 golf cart/day, it's a fun adventure. visit the blue holes, and lighthouse beach"

  • Fulfillment of a Quest!

    "We stayed at Culmer Cottage 6 days/nights and enjoyed a wonderful, relaxing time in and around Tarpum Bay. The purpose of this trip was to re-visit one part of our honeymoon trip of 45 years ago! We found the village had changed some, but not completely; it still exudes the authentic culture of the Bahamian people, who are very friendly and helpful. We really enjoyed walking around Tarpum Bay, talking with the locals, listening to the "fun and games" by the children outside even after dark. Where can you hear that anymore? That's something back in the 50s! Living in Culmer Cottage during this time was just as comfortable as it could be, with a full kitchen, interesting books to peruse, a patio to enjoy the view of the Bay. We were well taken care of with Kervin and Brenda, the caretakers, and they're adorable grandchildren. When we finally decided to visit Tarpum Bay, Lynn, the owner of the house, was an A+ Helper! She answered all our questions especially about travel. The communication between us was fairly often, either by email or phone, as we are not accomplished long-distance travelers and a little nervous about the flights. But she effectively put our minds at ease. We did not rent a car because neither my husband nor I felt comfortable driving on the "wrong side of the road"!! Even though we missed out on some great adventures because of that decision, our purpose for coming to Tarpum Bay was fulfilled, including a few quiet adventures anyway! So whatever your reason for reading this VRBO website, 'Experience Real Eleuthera', know that you're on the right path for a warm-weather vacation specially tailored for you. You won't be disappointed."

  • Great spot and very attentive owner

    "My husband and I stayed 4 nights at this house and then moved to another property for our last 3 nights in Eleuthera. We should have stayed put! The beach is gorgeous, Barbi answered every single question almost immediately and thoroughly, beds are comfortable, etc etc etc. The snorkeling was great right in front of the house, but you need to catch it at low tide and on a calm day. We had no problem with TV or internet while we were there. She supplies snorkeling gear, ice chests, beach chairs and bags so you can explore from one end of the island to the other without having to pack very much. The only suggestion I would make is to build a private outdoor shower complete with hot water. Then I might come back and never leave!"
