Me and my husband loved it! Back this summer!!!

  • 5 of 5
So this past march was our 6 year wedding anniversary. We decided to so something on our own (without our two toddlers haha). We chose Eden cottage because of the location. We have been to Nassau in the past and we were looking for a quieter, more romantic setting. When we arrived we were greeted by Sandra (the owner) at the airport. She was the sweetest woman and remained that way throughout our stay. She gave us a map to the cottage and told us where we can pick up groceries etc. she was very helpful. As for the cottage. It was BEAUTIFUL. It was so quaint and cute. It sits right across the street from the most breathtaking beach that you can imagine. My husband and I spent a lot of time at the beach and at the cute little restaurants just walking distance down the road (You have to try the conch fritters!). The cottage was clean, breezy and met all of our needs. We felt like we were in our own little world! The landscaping is also quite attractive and the neighborhood is such a nice little island town. There were often friendly little kids on the street looking for sea grapes or at the beach playing. One of the locals even taught me how to fish with a hand line one night (I didn't catch anything ha). Anyways if you are looking for a relaxing vacation in a secluded little paradise Eden cottage is the place for you!!! We had zero complaints :) My husband are planning our next trip back this summer!!!!! Thank you Sandra!

Friendly but could be better maintained

  • 2 of 5
We were met very warmly by Sandra at the ferry port, who helped us to contact the car rental company and gave us the keys and directions. The cottage is located nicely in a small village, which looks as if it has seen better days (maybe before the hurricanes in 2004?). Even though we liked the house and furniture, we did not feel comfortable as it was not very well maintained: 1) it could have been a lot cleaner (one does not expect moldy faucets in the bathroom, loads of half used shampoos and other old toiletries in chaos under the sink and dead cockroaches in the upper bedroom 2) We had to throw away tons of leftovers from previous inhabitants like jam, mayonnaise and oatmeal, which might related to problem 3) – the termites, which came out at nights and were everywhere. We were happy to be able to switch houses and stayed in Eden 2 (which is newer) from day three on, but even there we had to kill cockroaches and termites on a daily basis and showered hot and cold in turns.
However, if the houses would be cleaned and maintained better in the future, this is a really nice location and you can relax at the beach almost by yourself (joggers beware the dogs).

Owner's Response: Lisa and family stayed at the property during the month of March. It became apparent from their first day that they were having issues about ants and termites. I provided them with the necessary insecticides to assist with the problem. When further complaints were made I offered new accommodations so that I could have the exterminators review the situation and take the necessary action to eradicate the problem. I did explain to Lisa that the cottage is located in a wooded area and that contributed to the situation. As for the condiments, previous guests appreciated having them available so I did not see the need to dispose of them. I have not had any previous complaints that guests were offended by them. I do appreciate Lisa's comments on the state of cleanliness and will pay closer attention to the details mentioned. High Rock is a small local community and does not have the city grandeur, but the friendliness of the residence makes up for its short comings.

Excellent!

  • 5 of 5
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

  • 5 of 5
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

  • 5 of 5
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.
