About Ken and Adele Holtermann

Retired from Transportation Bussiness in New Jersey who came to Eleuthera 12 years ago .

The rest is history..loved the people and the peace of he island not to mention the beaches.

Decided to have villa built after much thought and planning in 2005 and then ken decided he needed something to keep him busy so he hired some local island men and constructed what is now the Pink Sand Cottage

I always wanted to be right on the water..knew the chances I was taking and said 'I'm doing this as you only go around once in life'

Many years of trucking the roads of the USA. I owned and operated a small trucking and transportation company

Adele worked many jobs but the biggest job was being the mom to our 3 sons

We are now blessed with two wonderful grandchildren Come visit Eleuthera and stay at our cottage

Pink Sand Cottage

  • 4 of 5

We spent one week at the cottage. It was clean, quaint, and exactly as pictured on the website. The bed was comfortable and the kitchen was well-equipped. It offered reading material and movies, if that is something you want. It is beautifully landscaped and provided much privacy. We saw only 1 person on the beach all week. The beach is very pretty and can be viewed from inside the house, on the porch, or from deck.

Pink Sand Cottage is a gem, and in a great location for exploring all of Eleuthera.

Wow, where to even begin, my lovely wife and I decided to take a different type of vacation that we are normally used to doing, opted for the more secluded, not as crowded less stimulating venue that we are normally accustomed to, and by no means were we disappointed, we could not have dreamed of actually finding a spot on earth with the quite and seclusion that Pink Sand Cottage offers

The cottage is everything that it is advertised and then some, excellent condition, cozy, romantic, absolutely perfect for two people, and it is right on the ocean, just sitting on the deck gazing out across the water can take up hours of your time, then the star gazing at night is just phenomenal, people talk of all the beautiful beaches on the island, but in the 2 weeks time that we were there we just could not pull ourselves away from the stunning beach outside the backdoor. We did manage to tear ourselves away a few times to enjoy the restaurants in the area, and with us both being vegetarians it was a great surprise that they do have veggie options, I would have to say our favorite was the 1864, which is the old club med property.

Then saving the best for last would be the owner himself Ken, what a jewel of a human being, thoughtful, kind, great conversationalist, knows everything about the area, just can not say enough about him.

Without a doubt we are looking forward to returning in the very near future

Wonderul Trip!

  • 5 of 5

The only complaint is that we only stayed one week! This was the first trip to the island for both of us. Overwhelmed by the friendliness of the local residents. Everyone we met was glad to give us information of any kind. The cottage was just the right size for the two of us, with everything we could need to be comfortable. The beach in front of the cabin was beautiful, water amazingly clear. Lots of little open areas for swimming and snorkeling. Though we had neighbors all around us at no time did we feel cramped or lacked privacy. Our plan was to relax and enjoy our immediate surroundings so we didn't travel the rest of the island much. Drove to Tarpum Bay one day, Glass Window Bridge another day. Both worth the time we gave up at "our" beach. We did go to Ten Bay a couple of times, just for the warm, calm waters and quiet, felt like we should whisper! We were greeted by a few stingrays, star fish, sand dollars everywhere, and a variety of small fish. We soon realized at least two weeks would be needed to fully explore our surroundings and have plenty of beach time. We loved the laid back vibe of the island and the lack of "touristy" feel. Thank you Ken and Adele for the helpful information before our trip and for giving us the perfect little place to stay while we experienced the beauty of Eleuthera.

This was one of the best adventure vacations my wife and I have ever been on, we were wanting to stay, but had to leave. Don't expect to see tons of people or have a list of things to do cause once you get groceries and some wine you will want to hang out on the beach. We want to go back ASAP!!!!

Week in paradise

  • 5 of 5

First time to the island and the vacation was great especially with the accommodations at the Pink Sand Cottage. Perfect for the two of us and loved the views from inside and outside the house of nothing but beach and water.

I'm not sure how it is other times of the year but almost every day we were the only ones on the beach. Maybe just timing but it felt as though we were the only ones on the island at times and having the peace and quiet was much needed.

Thanks to Ken and Adele for a great week and hope to be back soon!

Heaven on Earth

  • 5 of 5

Pink Sands Cottage is beautiful.

In the guest book at the Cottage I left the comment which is the heading of this review that it is Heaven on Earth - and it is. Pink sands is superbly located right on the beach - intact its 10 steps away. It's a lovely traditional cottage set in well kept gardens making the cottage private and peaceful. The views from the cottage are absolutely stunning and just sitting on the verandah looking out to sea and along the deserted beach makes this holiday home special. in front of the cottage are coral formations making great snorkelling and just 300 yards up the beach is a beautiful lagoon for swimming - so every morning it would be a swim in the lagoon followed by breakfast on the verandah - perfect

The owners Ken and Adele provide an excellent service. Everything involved in the booking was very easy (and we live in the UK) but the best part is that when you are at the cottage Ken and Adele will advise you and help you on all aspects of Eleuthera. Whilst they totally respect you privacy if you want help, advise or a recommendation - nothing is too much trouble for them - they are lovely people. In fact when we had an emergency when our flight was cancelled Ken and Adele sorted it all out for us (how nice is that).

When we arrived at Pink Sands Cottage we had a full programme to visit all the beautiful beaches of Eleuthera. Whilst visiting Twin Coves beach we just said why are we travelling to beaches when we have the best one with the best views at the cottage - so we packed up and came home!!

What you will love about Pink sands Cottage is its superb location on a beautiful deserted beach, the views, the peace and tranquility - it really is a place to get away from it all.

We have always prided ourselves in never going back to the same place twice - but we will definitely come back to Pink Sands Cottage - it's heaven on earth.
