Return trip!

  • 5 of 5

I hadn't been back since 2012 but it was just as wonderful as I remembered. The house location is lovely, oceanfront as well as lagoon-sited. Breezes all the time! There were 10 of us this time and we all had comfortable, large rooms with our own bathrooms. Large living area as well as lanais on both sides of the house make for lots of room to socialize (or escape to the hammock!). But the best part is Ruth - cook extraordinaire and housekeeper. Her meals (3/day if you want) were delicious and interesting whether it be your own fresh-caught fish or something she picked up at the grocery. She manages everything with grace and a great sense of humor.

There's much to do in Eleuthera, without the crowds of Nassau and other Bahamian islands. You can arrange to go deep-water fishing with Sid or just cruise to the uninhabited islands for snorkeling and a picnic. You can also fish and snorkel right off the beach, as well as kayak and collect shells. Cotton Bay itself is a great place to jog or walk on the road or beach. My favorite activity every day was a nap mid-afternoon, feeling the breezes from both sides of the property and listening to the surf. Paradise!

When I was at this location, I was in paradise. I could not have had a better time and both Ruth and Sid were fantastic. My son and I really enjoyed fishing in the Billfish Tournament. I could not have been more relaxed and I definitely want to return.

Great spot

  • 5 of 5

I grew up going to Cotton Bay and still cant believe my grandparents sold the house! I recently returned for the first time in 30+ years and stayed at Sanderling with my wife. Other than the fact that the golf course and the clubhouse are overgrown and unrecognizable, nothing has changed and I mean that in the very best way. Many of the people are still the same and if they have died its their children or grandchildren. The diving, fishing, hospitality and peace and quiet are all world class. We will be back early and often!!

Sanderling is a jewel!

  • 5 of 5

My friends and I had a wonderful week at Sanderling. The house was designed for groups and entertaining. Four bedrooms are ocean-front, each with spectacular wake-up views. Ruth is an incredible chef and expertly cooks your daily catch, the fresh fish she procures, or what you buy at the store in Rock Sound. Her bread, muffins and desserts are delicious. Arrange to go fishing as much as you can. Sidney is a pleasant and experienced captain. We can't wait to go back!

A fabulous winter escape!!

  • 5 of 5

The house is wonderfully situated on the ocean and lagoon. The pictures only begin to show this piece of paradise. The beach is lovely and uncrowded. Great walks,swimming, shelling and kayaking. Deep Sea fishing is available and good fun whether the fish and biting or not. Ruth is an added plus. She is a marvelous cook providing delicious meals each day.....One of the best meals was our fresh caught fish. Her desserts are a real treat. This is a perfect spot to get away, relax and enjoy tropical surroundings with friends.

Small piece of paradise

  • 5 of 5

This home is wonderfully situated on a peninsula with ocean on one side and lagoon on the other. House has continual sea breezes making it very comfortable. It is huge and the pictures do not do it justice.

The highlight of this home is Ruth the cook and her friend Loretta. Nothing is too much for them. Ruth prepares three meals a day if you wish and they are always delicious and healthy - she makes a killer chocolate souffle and her key lime pie and her curries are to die for. Both of them also do daily housekeeping. Ruth has a huge personality and humor. She is a delight to be around.

Cotton Bay was obviously a vibrant area in its day but is now becoming very underpopulated and in places uncared for. The golf course does not exist any more and the tennis court is barely playable. There is world class diving about 20 minutes away and the snorkelling is good at many locations on the island. A car is a necessity as this home is about 20minutes from Rock Sound where there is a good but fairly over priced market. We advise taking as much food as you can from US.

This is a WONDERFUL vacation spot for peace and tranquility and just getting off the beaten track. The beach in front of the house is wild and rugged. Great for strolling on and swimmable in places. There are fabulous aquamarine blue sea beaches within a very short drive of the house.
