We stayed in Eden Cottage 2 (the biggest, newest cottage) and we loved it! We went there with our son (3 almost 3 years old) and my mother in law. So, we were 3 adults and a child.
The whole High Rock area is wonderful and peaceful. The beach is just across the street, which is also very tranquil. The beach is nice, perfect for swimming, walking or just playing in the sand or water. Our 3-years old son loved it! We spent there 4 nights but wished we could stay there much longer. The cottage was very clean and it had everything we needed. There were also some sets for snorkeling and sand toys for children. We enjoyed the sunset making the barbecue in the afternoon. But if you want to have a dinner outside, there is a small restaurant on the beach 5 min. walk from the cottage.
Everybody there is very nice, also the staff is very nice and helpful, owners' assistant took us to the supermarket the very first day, so we could buy everything we needed too. Of course you need to rent a car if you want to stay there, but you need it anyway if you want to see the island.
The only one thing needs to be improved: the garden.
All in all, we all absolutely loved our stay in Eden Cottage, Grand Bahama!

Wonderful Family Getaway

The house was just as described and was perfect for our family of 5. (2 adults, 3 kids). We were met at the ferry dock by Julia, who is the sweetest person! She was very helpful in calling to get our rental car, and taking us to the grocery store. The drive to the house from town is a little far, but it is completely worth it!! The area of High Rock is very quiet and extremely friendly! Doris's restaurant is just down the road from the house, a quick walk on the road or beach. The food and the service was fantastic, and you can't beat the view! There is also free Wifi at the restaurant, which is nice if you need the internet, as there is no wifi at the house. The house has a bedroom downstairs and a bedroom in the loft upstairs. The stairs are very steep and narrow, so beware with kids. There is a window AC unit in each of the bedrooms, but they are very noisy. We were there in late July and shut it off, because we couldn't stand the noise. But opening the windows, and putting the fans on high was more than fine, as the breeze was fantastic! Plus falling asleep to the sound of the ocean was wonderful. There is also an outside shower, that we used a lot! It was great to be able to rinse off after walking up from the beach. The house was very well stocked with beach towels, bath towels, beach toys, beach chairs, microwave, coffee pot, plates, utensils, etc. There is a 13" TV in the bedroom downstairs and a larger one upstairs. The house has satellite, which was great. However, the TV upstairs can only watch what is on the TV downstairs. Not an issue for us, but worth noting. The beach is right across the street from the house. And the street is not a busy one, by any means. The beach is amazing, and we had it pretty much to ourselves. Bring some type of spray, though, as the horseflies are awful in the late afternoon/early evening!! There is a grocery store in town, Soloman's, that has everything you could possibly need. We had a wonderful time at Eden Cottage, and made some priceless memories. Looking at the pictures of the house, we are sad to not be there right now! We can't wait to go back, and fully intend to stay this house again and again!

Off the beaten path treat

Our stay at Eden Cottage was our best beach vacation ever. Very simple accomodations but everything our family of 4 needed. It's about a 30 minute drive away from Freeport so we were able to escape the typical tourist environment and experience the wonderful Bahamian people and how they live. Everyone we met in the settlement was friendly and helpful. We were able to do some excellent snorkelling right off the beach which we had to ourselves most of the time. You should expect to have to drive to town for provisions and laundry. There is a convenience store a few miles down the road for emergency items but we did most of our shopping in Freeport. Also, we did find it necessary, even in April, to turn on the air-conditioning for the comfort of our children who stayed in the upstairs bedroom which got very warm in the late afternoon and evening. Julia, the owner's daughter-in-law was an excellent source of help when we arrived and helped us with grocery shopping and navigating our way to the cottage. We would readily stay again at Eden Cottage.

Friendly!

This is the perfect place if you are looking for an isolated place in the middle of nowhere! The island is beutiful and the people are very friendly.

We rent this house for a week this summer, and it was quite of a chock the first day. The house was extremly hot, and it took about a day and a night before we could feel the air-condition. One more thing that was chocking was the isolated situation. There is a restaurant down the way (maybe 500 m away), but that´s all! But the neighbours are very friendly and you never ever feel afraid there.

About 20 m away is the beach, with lovely water and white sand. No one can complain about that, even if you cannot snorkle and see fishes from here. You have to go to an other beach (for example Paradise Cove) to get THAT snorkeling.The beach is also perfect for children!

The owner and her assistent are just lovely, they help you with everything that you can imagine!

The cottage is not modern, you get the feeling of old colonial style. The fans and the air-condition makes a LOT of noise, but you will like them!

The best part of the house is the porch, it´s lovely to sit there and watch and listen to the sea.

It takes about half an hour to get to the capital by car, where you have to buy your food. The road to town is quite boring, but you pass the Lucayan park, and that´s a good place to visit. Bring your swim suit.

Finally, the Grand Bahama is a nice island to visit (rent a car), a perfect place for relaxing, swimming, snorkelling. The Eden cottage is a lovely, but isolated place. You come closer to the people, you don´t feel like a tourist and you can swim as much as you can. If you´re hungry, there is a restaurant with friendly staff and nice food (Doris). But if you´re looking for wild night life, big party and a lot of people, choose another place!
