Overview

Rainbow Bay Cottage Rental Photos and Description

2 bedrooms, 2 bathrooms, sleeps 4 maximum

Eleuthera, Key Lime Cottage is a fully-furnished two bedroom, two bath oceanview cottage with all the amenities needed for your comfort, including central air, satellite TV, telephone and internet service. The occupancy limit of this cottage is four guests, and this is a non-smoking home.

Key Lime Cottage is located directly across popular Rainbow Beach which is on the Caribbean side. This house is only one of a few vacation rentals near this lovely beach. Rainbow Bay Beach has beautiful turquoise waters and is excellent for swimming and snorkeling.

We have a wonderful local Caretaker who lives nearby and a friendly, reliable car rental resource (a car rental is recommended for the area).

Eleuthera is a laid-back island for those who want to escape the city, and is a great place to just relax and soak up the sun, or to just dine at one of the local restaurants. In the evening, enjoy the spectacular sunset.

How to Arrive to Eleuthera: Eleuthera has three airports, Governor's Harbour (GHB), North Eleuthera (ELH), and Rocksound (RSD). Most of our guests fly into Governor's Harbour (the closest) or North Eleuthera Airport (2nd closest).

American and United via Silver Airlines are only an hour's flight to Eleuthera from Miami or Fort Lauderdale, Florida.

From Nassau, Bahamas, you may take a 20 minute flight to Eleuthera via Bahamasair, Southern Air or Pineapple Air.

Bahamas Ferries has a ferry route from Nassau that arrives most daily to Spanish Wells to the north.

Transportation: Eleuthera is not a very populated island and is about 110 miles long and 2 miles wide at the widest point. Therefore, a car is highly recommended to get around the area to get to grocery stores, restaurants, beach-hopping, island exploring, tourist spots, etc.

Our Caretaker's friendly son rents out vehicles at a fair rate for the area, and for our guest's convenience, will generally pick up our guests at the airport and ride over with them to the Key Lime Cottage so our guests will know the directions on getting there.

Eleuthera Things to Do: We are fortunate to be so close to beautiful Caribbean Rainbow Bay Beach which is great for swimming & snorkeling. In addition, the Rainbow Bay area also has four other beaches on the Atlantic side nearby, and the island itself has miles of unspoiled beaches to experience.

Kayak rentals for your stay, fishing trips (bonefishing, deep sea, etc), snorkeling, diving excursions can be arranged. Just contact the owners or local caretaker and they will be happy to direct you.

Take a day trip north about 30 miles to either Harbour Island with Pink Sands Beach and tourist shops, or Spanish Wells - Russell Island, a fishing village with colorful homes and a beautiful beach.

What makes this cottage unique

Just steps across the street to what's considered by most as the best beach in Rainbow Bay.

Guestbook comments from the manager

We have rented cottages and apartments before for vacation accomodations and the Keylime Cottage was the best by far. It provided everything we needed, so that we had a comfortable home base to return to after enjoying the beauty of the beaches and the unsophisticated-in-a-good-way nature of the island. Perfect spot in Eleuthera!

the property was as advertised. 2 minute walk to very nice beach. you definitely need a car to get to any restaurants and grocery stores. Brenda and billy stubbs and their son kean very nice and helpful. I happened to be very sick that week so didn't enjoy it as much as I could have, but the weather was beautiful. used washer/dryer , worked fine. the large burner on stove did not work. minor inconvenience. nice sitting on deck.

Wonderful Cottage

  • 5 of 5
We really loved Key Lime Cottage. It was clean and very nicely decorated. It was great to sit on front porch with the view of the water and have our breakfast and dinner. It was centrally located to explore beaches in both directions. We especially love Gaulding Cay beach. We had a great vacation.

Wonderful Cottage, location, and people

  • 5 of 5
We had an excellent stay at the Key Lime Cottage. The cottage is new, clean, and well-stocked with the necessities to feel at home as well as extra useful items for use during day-long beach trips (towels, beach chairs, beach mats, cooler, boogie boards, etc.) The beach is just across the street from the cottage, which is on a calmer, residential road. Rainbow bay is very picturesque, clear turquoise shallow waters great for snorkeling, swimming, and safe if you have young swimmers with you.

Eleuthera itself is a place where you can experience Bahamian life, slow down, relax, and be in a truly picturesque setting without the touristy-scene. There are so many beaches to explore by car and the cottage is centrally located to all parts of the island.

We must say that the people we met really treated us like family. The owner took time to explain the cottage's amenities and nearby services as we prepared for our trip and was very flexible to meet our needs. The cottage's caretaker, called us mid-stay to check-in on us and is a wonderful cook (fri/sat bbq at their home and/or ordering meals from them is highly recommended- delicious and a bargain). Their son manages the car rental and was also kind enough to help us with local travel arrangements during our stay.

The only thing the Key Lime Cottage doesn't have is internet, which is perhaps a good thing if you are looking to disconnect during your vacation (there is a phone for local calls and that was very helpful). We found a great place with wifi in nearby Alice Town/Hatchet Bay called "The Front Porch" on the Queen's Hwy, but you do need your laptop or smartphone to connect. We enjoyed a few great meals there and nice views of the bay. The owners are also lovely people.

Visit Eleuthera to experience Bahamian culture and natural beauty, and the Key Lime Cottage to feel truly at home. Great trip!

Owner's Response: We are pleased to hear from our guests and am glad they felt right at home and experienced that wonderful Bahamian hospitality. Eleuthera is such a beautiful island treasure. We hope they are able to make a return visit. On an additional note, the local phone company just upgraded internet services for the Rainbow Bay area, and the Key Lime Cottage is expected to have internet installed soon.

Excellent cottage with small dining area. Within a few yards of the best & safest beach in Rainbow Bay on the Caribbean side of Eleuthera.
Very suitable for family of four or two adult couples. Close to one of the best restaurants on Eleuthera (Rainbow Inn).
