My wife and I brought our family to the islands for Spring Break this year, (Son 17, Daughter 12 and Daughter 9), for 10 days. A friend recommended that we get in touch with Sandra, because like us they hate the busy, crowded and expensive resort areas. Well we could not have been any happier. Sandra immediately got back to us and helped us coordinate everything and then met us at the airport and welcomed us to Grand Bahamas. We rented a car from Dollar and Sandra took us to Solomon's Grocery store to stock up. She is the sweetest woman on the island. We then drove to High Rock and found the most BEAUTIFUL island colonial style cottage right on the beach. The inside was cozy and cheery. The beach and view was spectacular. We hardly ever used the air conditioners because the Trade Wind breezes were enough and you could fall asleep listening to the gentle waves. The children all slept up in the loft and had a ball bunking together. Plus we all loved the beach which is literally across the street and not only very tranquil but basically private. The water was always turquoise and perfect for swimming, playing and snorkeling. We brought our snorkel gear and swam out to the reef on a daily basis. The small local "restaurants" at the end of the road are not that great, but we did not care. We brought food to cook and grilled everyday on Sandra's fire pit. Every morning we had breakfast on the front porch taking in the breathtaking view of the Caribbean. We loved living with the local villagers and one morning Clarence (local villager) took our son out fishing and brought back Grouper, Mako and Snapper to grill. Plus we went Conch diving and made our own Conch Chowder. Everyone in the village are wonderful and welcoming. (Make sure you visit the local ice cream shop at the circle and Junior for wine and rum up on the main road). We lived for 10 days in our own little spectacular world and only drove into Freeport on a couple of occasions to visit Port Lucayan Marketplace, go to dinner a couple of times and hit Solomon's again. We visited Lucayan National Park a short drive away. Our Easter dinner this year was served with the spectacular views and then an evening swim. Our next to last day we went to the Coconut Festival in nearby Pelican Point and enjoyed local drinks and food. We all hated leaving and will definitely return to our new gorgeous island getaway. I cannot recommend Eden Cottage enough. Simply Paradise. Thank you Sandra, we shall return!!!
