PERFECT PLACE TO GET AWAY FROM IT ALL

  • 5 of 5
We were at Coconut Cottage for 2 wonderful weeks. The property was just as described regarding location, layout, amenities, etc. It was clean and well maintained. Wayne kept in contact with us, calling a couple of times to make sure everything was good. Kim, the caretaker, checked in on us several times, as well. She brought us a loaf of homemade bread and a bottle of wine the first night, and later on brought us a GIANT lobster tail that was caught fresh that day, for an unbelievably low price. Our daughter was with us for the first week, so we went to Club Med on a day pass one day from 10:30 to 6:00. We got buffet lunch, windsurfing, snorkeling, free drinks all day and great snack bar dinner for $50 each. Nice to visit, but we would prefer to stay in a private home. If you rent a car, remember that you will be driving on the wrong side of the road, but there is so little traffic that it's not a big deal. Wayne and Sharon have a vehicle available for rental. I recommend utilizing the car because you have to drive all the way around the island - you came all this way, right? Not a lot to see on the east side of the island, but there is a lighthouse which is neat to climb to the top, and good places to find conch shells. The best place to find sea glass is Halls Landing by the seawall. We mostly ate at Columbus Tavern, right next door. Great food and so convenient. You may want to call ahead and see what the catch of the day is since that is what will be served for dinner. Grouper, conch and shrimp is what we mostly ate. My personal favorites were the shrimp and conch fritters. The only problem we had was with the flight from Nassau to San Sal. Wayne and Sharon recommended that we fly in to Nassau, get some meat and a few other food items, then fly out the next day. Good advice, since fresh fruits/veggies/meat are sometimes scarce on the island, but Bahamasair was a little trying. We had a 3 hour delay - not good with frozen meat in your bag. And bug spray and benadryl are necessary for the "no-see-ums". The people on the island are all very friendly. Everyone waves and speaks to you. We hope to go back some day. Thanks, Wayne and Sharon, for a very memorable vacation.

DIVING PARADISE

  • 4 of 5
This island is a diving paradise. If you are going to do diving on San Salvador, and not staying at one of the resorts, you definitely need a vehicle. Having the SUV was a must for us on this trip. The roads are a little rough on this island but no problem with the SUV.

The house has been newly refurbished and has a fantastic deck where you can watch the sunset each night (if the no-seeums don't eat you up). Bug spray is a must in the evenings. The outdoor showers were fantastic...we used them to wash diving equipment and shower afer the beach. Wonderful to have two bathrooms in the house too. This is not a luxury house or island, but it was comfortable and met all our needs.

It was wonderful to be able to cook our meals at the house and not eat out 3 times a day. Everything is furnished in the house - well stocked kitchen (pots, pans, seasonings, condiments, etc.). There are several restaurants on the island (two resort (expensive) and some smaller (reasonable) island restaurants).

The "yard" at the house needs some tending (weeds and stickers make it necessary to wear shoes to get to the beach) - which is so private and amazing. We took long walks each evening.

The water on Sal Salvador is some of the most beautiful I have ever seen. It is clear and blue and amazes you on a daily basis. The diving is extraordinary. We used Club Med for our diving experience and they were very professional. The boats (catamarans) are new and they are on a set schedule each day. The dive masters are wonderful and very helpful, They have over 20 different diving sites - all jaw-dropping beautiful.

Memorable trip.

Owner's Response: Thanks Denise! We love it down there. I agree about the no-see-ums. However, anytime you can go somewhere this unspoiled by civilization, it is well worth dealing with more of MotherNature's challenges.

HEAVEN ON EARTH!

  • 5 of 5
My husband & I visit a different out island each summer. This year we chose San Salvador. It was the best experience we have ever had. The house is clean, comfortable & well furnished. We felt at home. Wayne & Sharon greeted us at the airport, took us to dinner & showed us around. We appreciated their warm welcome. We spent 2 glorious weeks sunning, snorkeling & exploring. We found many areas with great snorkeling & shell collecting. We explored the entire island and met many locals & enjoyed getting to know them. The islanders are very warm & friendly. Most supplies were easily found in neighborhood stores. We fell in love with a "potcake" (island dog) & are trying to adopt her. I doubt we will continue to visit more islands. Hopefully, we will return to San Sal & the house again & again! Best island vacation ever!!!!

AWESOME RENTAL

  • 5 of 5
We had the best vacation. The location was perfect, beach behind the house was perfect and the weather was perfect. Wayne and Sharon answered all our questions and Wayne greeted us at the airport and showed us around. We rented their jeep which was great to go exploring other swimming / snorkeling locations. We also utilizied the bikes which was great to go to the point and other close by locations. Our foot prints were the only ones on the beach. It was amazing. Go to the New Columbus Tavern next door, "B" the owner was informative and a great cook. You could tell him what you were hungry for and he would get it off the fishing boats the next day and prepare it for you. We had mouth water lobster one night, ribs, and conch on other nights. It was great. The people on the island are friendly and we felt safe. We would definitely go back!

RENT THIS HOME!

  • 5 of 5
We spent two weeks in Coconut Cottage and loved it! It was well equipped, clean, and in a great location. We rented the Jeep Cherokee also, and would recommend this to make your trip even better. There are many nice beaches in the area that are in walking distance, but it is so easy to drive and spend all your energy at the beach snorkeling or swimming. In addition, we would pack a cooler with cold drinks and snacks. You do not need to leave the house to enjoy a beautiful beach though, just steps from the back porch is a beautiful beach we where we enjoyed swimming. The people of San Salvador are friendly and helpful, and we found it to be a very safe island. We spent the majority of our trip snorkeling just to the right or left of the house and were able to see tons of stingrays, a turtle, flounder, cowfish, squid, trigger fish, squirrel fish, pipe fish, puffer fish, and angel fish just to name a few. We also utilized the Riding Rock Resort for our diving needs and found them to be top of the line! The diving close to shore is amazing and only a short boat ride from the harbor, which by the way is only a short drive from the house. We would highly recommend this house! Thank you Sharon and Wayne for answering all our questions, meeting us here, showing us around and getting us settled! You have made this trip fantastic for us. Thank you for sharing your beautiful home! We look forward to renting your home again, hopefully in the very near future.

FABULOUS RENTAL

  • 5 of 5
We stayed in this rental for one week and found it to be in an excellent location. The home is completely reburbished with air conditioning, cable television, and wireless internet. The home is next door to a restaurant, the Columbus Tavern, and is within walking distance to a general store. The owners also have a Jeep Cherokee to rent, and this was a much cheaper option than others on the island. The kitchen is fully equipped and there is a gas grill on the back patio. The bicycles were nice to ride in the evening around the neighborhood. There were six of us who stayed in the home, and there was plenty of space for us. The home is just a few steps from the beach. We would highly recommend this rental property. It has beautiful decor and all the amenities one needs.
