COZY COTTAGE WITH AMAZING OCEAN VIEWS FROM EVERY ROOM.

Rainbow Bay Cottage Rental Photos and Description

2 bedrooms, 2 full baths

Once you rent our cozy cottage in Rainbow Bay on the island of Eleuthera, Bahamas you'll want to return to this island of natural beauty and warm, friendly people. Tranquil Seas is a comfy smoke-free cottage with Indonesian decor and bamboo matting on walls/ceilings, tiled countertops, Bali wood doors and bamboo trim. A separate laundry room is an added bonus that you don't find in many vacation homes on the island. We have completed lots of upgrades to the cottage that we know you will appreciate.

There is a master bedroom with full bath and walk-in closet at each end of the house providing privacy if you wish to share the cost with friends as well as an outside shower. A queen sized sleeper sofa in the living room allows the house to accommodate up to 6 persons in the home. Each bedroom has flat screen tv with dvd player. Flat screen in living room with dvd player and satellite programming. It is perfect for families or as a romantic getaway, Eleuthera is a wonderful place for couples because intimacy is easily obtained; no crowds, no noise. It's the perfect place to do as little or as much as you wish.

It is one of very few properties on the entire island with incredible panoramic views of both the Atlantic and the Caribbean side so you can sit on the front porch with your morning coffee and watch the sun rise and sit on the back porch in the evening with a frosty cold island drink and watch the sun set. Leave the sliding doors open in the bedrooms at night to catch the soft breeze, the sound of the surf, and see the cruise ships lit up in all of their glory cruising the Atlantic. Wake up to views of the sea without lifting your head off of the pillow. Gorgeous wide open water views from every room, you can see both seas at once from some rooms in the house.

Because of the close proximity of the ocean, cross breezes keep the cottage cool plus there are ceiling fans in each room and air conditioning for warm days/nights. Short walks will take you to beautiful picture-postcard secluded beaches, each with it's own unique beauty. No jet skiis, no vendors 'trolling' their wares to disturb you. Two sea kayaks are available for your unlimited use during your stay at no extra cost which is a big bonus since the kayak rental fee on the island is pricey.

The cottage is centrally located to enable you to explore more easily. There are quaint little shops to browse in and even a cinema showing the lastest films. You can rent a surfboard in Gregorytown and will also see a very good variety of sea life while snorkeling. The area south of Current cut is one of the best places for snorkeling/diving ever. It is not unusual to see stingrays, squid, spiney lobster, many parrot fish, angelfish as well as lionfish, turtles and dolphins. Eleuthera has the best beaches in the Bahamas and you may not see another person while enjoying the sand, surf and sun since Eleuthera has an abundance of them.

Car rental is about $420 per week and we can give advice on booking flights (the closest airport is Governor's Harbour). Check out lots more photos of the cottage, beaches and the island - ask us for our link to the website. We know that you'll love this island and our home as much as we do! It's the place to escape from it all to restore your spirit and soothe your soul.

Visit the fish fry in Governor's Harbour on friday nights for good food, drink, and dancing in the street. Fun for all, meet lots of people from the world over. Make memories that will last a life time! We make it better for you because we provide many amenities for an easy transition into island mode. Questions welcome, we love to talk about Eleuthera!

We are a couple in our early 60's who live in the Northeast USA and who discovered Eleuthera and can't get enough of it.

Carlene Pearsall purchased this cottage in 2004

We love this property because of the incredible views of the two totally different seas and it's proximity to the most beautiful beaches we have ever seen.

Wonderful time!

We want to thank you for sharing your home with us. This was the best vacation ever! The island is beautiful and the people so friendly, and the cottage had everything that we needed, and more. Your kitchen is better equipped than mine in Ohio. The information that you provided was extremely helpful. The house was very clean and we were pleased to find so many extra amenities, like snorkel gear, kayaks, insulated coolers, and such a large movie collection. Watched more movies than television. Thank you for sharing your beautiful home with us. We definitely will return and bring friends.

Our Second Stay at Tranquil Seas

  • 5 of 5
  • Submitted: Jun 18, 2013

We have stayed at Tranquil Seas Cottage twice now - once two years ago, and we have just returned from our second visit. We have traveled to other places in the Caribbean, but the island of Eleuthera really is one of our favorite spots! It may not be for everyone (do your research before you go), but there is no lack of beautiful beaches (with hardly a soul on them), great snorkeling, crystal clear calm water and friendly people. Our two visits to Eleuthera have been completely different. Two years ago, we happened to visit during Hurricane Irene, which hit the island pretty hard. We were not able to leave the island, had to board up the cottage, sit tight and ride out the storm. We were a little nervous (and annoyed about our ruined vacation), but ready for for an experience. We made it through (it was a long night), had no power the rest of our trip (3 days) and ran out of running water our last day there. With that being said, THERE IS NO OTHER COTTAGE I WOULD HAVE RATHER STAYED AT DURING THAT TIME!! The owners, Dave and Carlene were nothing but helpful! They made sure we had everything we could possibly need to make it through the storm and the rest of the week. Also, the caretaker for the house, Laura, went above and beyond for us all week! The cottage did not have wi-fi and phone at the time, and Laura actually took us to her house so we could call the airline and family. She is a sweetheart! This time around our trip went nice and smooth and we had a relaxing week! Tranquil Seas has pretty much everything you would ever need for a comfortable stay. The cottage is clean and even though it's a smaller cottage, it doesn't feel crowded. The two bedrooms and bathrooms are on each side of the house so everyone has their own space. The wi-fi works great. I was expecting it to be slow on the island, but this was not the case. The kitchen is well equipped with anything you need to cook a meal. They have everything you need for a day at the beach as well - beach bags, snorkel gear, beach chairs, coolers and kayaks. Carlene is always so nice, helpful, and prompt with answering any questions you may have about the island as well. I could not recommend this cottage enough and hope to make a third visit sometime in the future!

Owner's Response: Thanks so much for your wonderful review! And you folks are wonderful! You took care of our home before, during and after a hurricane, and that went above and beyond what we expect guests to do! Thank you!!!!!

Such.s great vacation. We had never been to Eleuthera but we will go back and stay at Dave and Carlene's . There is nothing lacking at their wonderful cottage. We had rain but there is a great selection of movies and. games . You can drink your coffee in the am on the front porch and watch the Caribbean and have a drink in the evening on the back porch and watch the Atlantic. We never had to use ac - just open the doors and keep the ceiling fans on Carlene is wonderful to work with. Very prompt in returning emails. The people of Eleuthera are all tour guides - so helpful. Wonderful experience !

Absolutely Wonderful!

This cottage is a gem! I thought it was exceptionally well kept, clean and stocked with everything you could possibly need....seriously, right down to the spice rack in the kitchen. The kayaks were great and a big bonus! The owners were extremely helpful in every way. The housekeeper was also a sweetheart. It was nice to have the cottage in the middle of the island and made exploring easy. The beaches are outstanding. This was one of our favorite vacations. It was truly a relaxing break. We are looking forward to returning next year.

Being almost centrally located on the island is a big bonus, making it easy to explore from north to south. Wide open ocean views, two completely different looking seas, are the best feature of this cozy home. Sit on the front porch with your morning coffee and on the back porch with a cold cocktail or brew and enjoy the surf of the Atlantic side or the calm turquoise waters of the Caribbean side, so different in their beauty.

See the ocean without having to lift your head off of the pillow. Rockers and hammock chairs make it a relaxing stay. Do as little or as much as you want. The island, with it's natural beauty and friendly people, is a great place to explore. Every beach is different from the last, every turn in the road brings new unforgettable vistas and fun in the sun.

Take out the sea kayaks to explore the water and have even more adventure by exploring on land. Snorkeling on Eleuthera is so much better than you may have experienced elsewhere because there haven't been any crowds to spoil or damage the reefs like in places full of tourists.

The cottage will fit all of your needs, from a laundry room to a kitchen with every appliance that you will find in your own home. Two master suites serve well for comfort and convenience. Each bedroom has flat screen tv with dvd player. We believe in making your stay as easy as possible. We also provide beach chairs, beach towels, beach umbrella, snorkel gear, floats, koozies, coolers, ice blocks, and a picnic pack. Just bring your bathing suits and sandals!

The cottage has satellite tv with sirius/XM radio, WIFI internet, cell and land phones for your use, great movie selection, games, playing cards, puzzle books and jigsaw puzzles, plus other amenities that you don't find in other vacation homes.

We will provide you with a lot of information about the cottage, the island, other islands you may want to visit, where to get groceries, sites to see, things to do, auto rental suggestions, etc.

You'll find sand, sun and fun at our island home on Eleuthera!
