Enjoy the personal attention your Bahamian hosts will provide during your stay.
Kim & Terry,
Thank you for everything!
We LOVED this vacation.
Best of success & future.
Tim & Amie, in Starfish Cottage
My husband and I headed to Eleuthera for my 30th birthday celebration. White/pink sand beaches and turquoise water was the best way to ring in a new decade! The cottage is just perfect. It's everything you need packed into a cute little place. I think my favorite part was the jungle shower just steps outside your door. After the day swimming in the saltwater, a cool shower in the open air was perfect. For days we didn't want to venture out, we stayed next to the pool with a cool drink and enjoyed the sunny weather and listened to the water below in the cove.
We did rent a car and went up and down the island many times while we were there exploring beaches and other towns. However, many nights we walked just down the road to grab dinner and drinks.
Kimy & Terry, your place is just amazing. Thank you for letting us experience this special island. We can't wait to go back and get back on island time. Until next time! :)
We had such a wonderful time staying at the Starfish Cottage hosted by Kimy and Terry in Gregory Town, Eleuthera. This was my very first trip to the Bahamas and my first trip out of the country and it was exactly what I was hoping for. I really didn’t want to do the tourist thing because I wanted to actually experience a different place. Gregory Town was a real Bahamian town that was small enough to feel secluded but not desolate.
The property is right on the harbor and a dock leads right down to the water. The property itself is just amazing, with unique landscaping and artistic elements worked in everywhere! Even real coconuts ripe for the husking. Terry built much of what is on the property and Kimy has used all kinds of shells and artifacts found on the beaches to decorate everything.
The cottage too was perfect for our needs. It’s one room but spacious and includes a kitchen with all the dishes and cooking instruments you may need. I wanted to go to the Bahamas to experience the outdoors but I’m not much of a camping girl. There was a nice comfy bed and clean sheets but the windows could be opened up and the hot water shower is out in the fresh air but in its own enclosed area for privacy. Everything was just beautiful, like a dream. The bathroom and shower is not connected to the cottage, but it’s only a few steps away and very private.
The island itself has so much to offer that it is impossible to see it all even in a full seven-day trip. We were excited by the idea of an excluded experience not having to share a beach with a hundred people. It was the perfect mixture. We could find secluded areas when we wanted seclusion, but we also had a couple of options if we wanted live music or dancing in the evening, or if we wanted to meet locals and hang out with them. There were plenty of awesome restaurants to choose from and almost everywhere we ate was amazing.
A car is important. We only rented one for three or four days and entertained ourselves for around Gregory Town and the property for a few days. We got the car in the middle of our stay so the first and last days we could just get to know the local area and rest after all the snorkeling and other activities we planned. It is a mile or two walk to a beach from the property, but if you want to stay nearby you can swim in the harbor. We even did a little snorkeling in the harbor.
Overall an amazing experience, so good, even things going wrong couldn't spoil it!
Kimmie and Terry thank you so much for being great host. We had an amazing honeymoon exploring the island and cooking in our little cottage. Thank you for all the tips on what to see and when to go. We missed the island the minute we stepped back into our busy lives at home. I'd recommended this place to everyone. Lovely property hidden away my beautiful greenery. The people in The town where the cottage was located were all so nice and welcoming.
We miss you Starfish cottage but hopefully we will be back one day.
Thank you again take care.
We absolutely adored our stay in Eleuthera with Kimy, Terry, and Morocco at the Starfish Cottage! If you are looking for a place with beautiful scenery, lots of adventures, while still being romantic and relaxing; this is the place to go! The Starfish Cottage was perfect. It was a great size for just my husband and I, tastefully decorated, and was equipped with everything one would need to cook meals before going out on daily adventures! On top of the cottage being wonderful, the property was amazing. The landscaping around the cottages was beautiful and well-kept, and view awesome sunrises/sunsets on the harbor from the dock were UNREAL.
Kimy and Terry were incredibly accommodating. They helped us find a local guy to rent a car through; which was much needed because we used it to see some of the most beautiful views on the island (Lighthouse beach was a trek to get to, but SO worth it). They were able to point us in the right direction for the best snorkel/surf spots, and also had the low-down on the best places to eat. Not to mention, Morocco was always there to give a friendly greeting whenever we got back to the house :); which made us feel right at home since we were missing our own fur-kids.
This vacation was wonderful. We would recommend staying here to anyone, and have recommended it to all of our friends and family. If you are looking for a beautiful, romantic, yet adventurous destination then this is the place to go. Thank you Kimy, Terry, and Morocco for being such excellent hosts; we will be back!!!
We were searcing for a casual and comfortable spot, away from crowds and with access to kayaks and beaches for a special anniversary. We found it here. Kim and Terry are as kind and helpful as everyone has described them. They offered the right suggestions on beaches to vist, helped us organize a snorkelling session with a guide from the nearby village and answered all of my questions about the local flaura. Yes, the front porch is a must for dinner. We recommend you try the local beer (with lime). We rented a car for only a few days and for the longest trips on the island. Otherwise we hichted rides - a great way to meet people. My early morning spot for coffee and a book was the chair by the dock - underneath palm leaves. Our cottage had everything we needed plus had a creative look and feel. We made good use of the outdoor shower! We so enjoyed watching the sea, and the occasional storm cloud formation on the horizon. Stargazing was incredible. Kim and Terry - you have done an incredible job of creating an amazing spot to rest and play. Merci!
My husband and I were looking for a relaxing, exotic island location for our honeymoon and were so pleased to find it here at the Star Fish cottage in Gregory Towb, Eleuthera. The owners, Kimy and Terry were so kind and welcoming to us immediately upon our arrival. They provided us with suggestions of beautiful beaches to see and things to do on the island that suited our needs and likes. It is definitely necessary to rent a car in order to see all the amazing beaches in Eleuthera, and Kimy and Terry helped arrange all the details of the car rental. We also greatly enjoyed the time spent at the cottage, especially the snorkeling right off the dock in the Gregory Town cove, where we saw lots of neat fish. There is no restroom in the cottage itself, which may not be for everyone, but we didn't mind as the restroom is located right outside the cottage and we always felt very safe everywhere on the island. One of our favorite spots to eat was The Front Porch, where the food is fresh and absolutely delicious. Our favorite beach was the French Leave beach, where we walked on soft pink sand for miles and did not see more than 5 other people. Ultimately, we had an amazing, relaxing, at times adventurous, honeymoon. Without hesitation, I recommend the Starfish Cottage or any other property that these owners manage. They are incredibly kind people and will go out of their way to ensure your stay at Eleuthera is memorable and relaxing...the perfect island experience!
