TURTLE COTTAGE - BEACHFRONT,PRIVATE,CUTE,COMFY AND AFFORDABLE!

North Palmetto Point Cottage Rental Photos and Description

Cottage, 1 Bedroom, 1 Bath, (Sleeps 2)

Imagine this -- Turtle Cottage as your own private oceanfront getaway: imagine yourself in an adorable, inviting cottage with everything you need for a relaxing vacation. The living room/dining room/kitchen is one big, open space, with beautiful light and high ceilings. The kitchen is complete with everything you need. The living room has comfortable furniture where you can snooze on the couch or just sit and veg. The spacious bedroom, with a King-sized bed, has its own view, big closet and an adjoining bath. Everywhere you look it's colorful, comfortable and roomy.

Imagine yourself grabbing a towel and walking down a short path to the Gazebo, where you can sit for hours and read a book, or watch the ocean. Imagine walking down the beach to the popular restaurant 'Tippy's' for lunch or walk the other direction and not see a soul for hours; or gather shells, watch the sandpipers, or -- think about it -- do nothing at all!

Imagine yourself going deep-sea fishing out of Gregory Town, or snorkeling off Potlatch Beach, or SCUBA diving where Jacques Cousteau used to dive, or renting a bike or a kayak and exploring, or trying Bone Fishing in back of Windemere. Imagine making a day of it, going sightseeing in Harbour Island, where you take a water ferry over, rent a golf cart and drive yourself around -- lunch on the beach and do some classy shopping, or buy yourself a sun hat at the Straw Market. Imagine driving to places called Tarpum Bay or Spanish Wells. Visit the breathtaking Cliffs, and then go to Surfer's Beach, where you can watch world-class surfers Hang Ten.

Imagine that -- and quickly, call us!

A place on Eleuthera has been in the family since the 60's, so it has been a big part of my life, and very dear to my heart.

Although right on the ocean,the cottage is completely private yet conveniently mid-way between Governor's Harbour and Palmetto Point Settlement. The Main House is nearby but still can't be seen, and there are no neighbors on the other sides. The beach is completely private, and the 360-degree views from the cottage are amazing. Morning coffee under the Gazebo, overlooking the beach and ocean is spellbinding. And sunsets on the cottage deck are even better. The rest of the world just falls away.

Very romantic getaway

This property was a wonderful retreat from the world. The pictures are super accurate with plenty of room to move around. The bed is comfy and the couch made a great nap spot. The patio is nice but needs a roof or umbrella as it's in full sun all day, so too hot to eat dinner outside. The gazebo at the beach is wonderful though and we spent plenty of time relaxing under the thatched roof there. The kitchen had every appliance we needed, and the caretaker brought the grill out of storage when we asked about it. There are also a few spices on hand. I had read other reviews about taking meat to the Bahamas and I was very glad we did. The stores have very little, and it is all very expensive. We packed frozen meat in dry ice and it was still frozen after an overnight layover to get there. Stores get deliveries on Tuesdays and Thursdays and the veggie selection was much better then.

We didn't eat out much but did have yummy ribs at the Bistro north of Governors Harbor. And we found a little grocery store in North Palmetto the had some ice cream. Everything is super expensive, so just plan to spend $5 for a half gallon of milk, and more for a package of lunch meat. We also rented a car from Big Daddy's Car Rental for $50 a day, which was $10 cheaper than others. You definitely need a car to get around.

Our favorite beach was Ten Bay Beach, just south of Palmetto. Gorgeous blue water, super calm and shallow. Great for floating the hours away. The beach in front of the house is a great Atlantic beach, more swells, though no waves, but very refreshing and a great morning swim when you finally decide to get up.

Camilla was great and answered all of my questions before we went, and Sherman was a great caretaker, helping when we asked, and otherwise left us to ourselves. I also verified before booking that nobody would be in the main house, as it would have drastically changed our privacy, especially with the shared gazebo.

We would definitely recommend this property. It's not a high end resort, but very comfortable.

Ideal Getaway Vacation for a couple. The cottage is clean, well-maintained, and comfortable. The beach, as are almost all beaches on Eleuthera, is spectacular. We loved sitting down on the deck overlooking the ocean. It is convenient to Tippy's, the Levy Center (great Nature Center), and town. The first few days we got there, all we wanted to do was walk on the beach, sit on the deck, eat, and read. They have dish tv, which is almost too bad because I enjoyed being away from the noise of the world. Didn't turn it on until later in the week. The wi-fi was also not working, which also helped with the electronic rehab feeling. Found out I could live without it!

I would have liked to have had a grill, and the directions could have been better, but other than that nothing but praise for this great vacation value.

Peace, quiet, good food, and massages

Turtle Cottage was great for our honeymoon. It was secluded and quite. In fact, even though there were people staying at Shearwater (the main house next door-which is very close), we barely saw them. The beach nearby is phenomenal. We spent hours on the beach every day and saw 6 people the whole time we were there. You can walk forever. The snorkeling off the beach is decent, but the surf can be rough sometimes. There is good shore-based snorkeling elsewhere too (Ten Bay Beach, and beaches near Palmetto Point).

The cottage is well-outfitted with pots, pans, appliances, blender, towels, sheets, spices, oil, and some consumables (LOTS of coffee filters) and some food. We left half a bottle of rum for whoever comes next. It is also extremely comfortable. The furniture is great and the layout is awesome. The owners recently brought 2 beach chairs and umbrellas to the island that really help on the beach.

Eleuthera is truly phenomenal. We rented a car from Arthur (kind of pricey, but required) as Camilla suggested and saw pretty much the whole island. We would recommend the town of Current in the north and Rock Sound and beyond in the south. There are some (but not many) great places to eat in Rock Sound-including one at the end of a very long road past "Ocean Hole". We left more information in the guest book at Turtle. In GH, Tippys is not to be missed. We went there 4 times. Sure it is $$, but its worth every $. The fish fry in GH is also not to be missed. Its Friday night and is great food and entertainment. As with the rest of the island, bring cash.

Finally, we has a massage on the deck at Turtle arranged through the manager of the Sky Club. The name, business card, and cell phone of the lady that came to the cottage is also in the guest book. You really cant beat a massage from someone that drives to your location with a table and all the supplies and gives you a massage on the deck or the beach. She is amazing! She said "Now that I know where Turtle is, I'll come out here whenever".

Finally, if you are wondering where Turtle is, it is quite a bit past (about a mile + from Tippys) and other home rentals. "On the Rocks" was a close one to it. It is far back from the road (Banks Road) and even has its own little driveway that is separate from the main house. No houses nearby at all. If you are worried at all about the privacy, seclusion, or noise level at Turtle, don't. Cause it is perfect. Unless the sound of waves and rustling Palmettos is an issue.

Wonderful stay at Turtle Cottage

My partner and I sadly just returned from Eleuthera and Turtle cottage 4 days ago. We could not have enjoyed the cottage more, or the area where it's located. We were seeking a very private place for our vacation and we definitely got it. There is a main house but it's not rented out to people and only used by the owner and her friends/family. If the main house were occupied privacy would be dramatically changed as the two houses are close together and the gazebo near the beach appears to be shared by the two houses. Luckily that was not an issue at all.

The property is very large and completely surrounded by dense palm trees. It's high up enough that you get a great view and there is a constant breeze blowing off the Atlantic. The beach is a very short walk down a lovely sandy path and the view from the gazebo is amazing. Stargazing is great at the cottage too due to the lack of light anywhere. There are other cottages down the beach but I only saw one person the whole week, walking on the beach. The house is very comfortable, clean and well equipped. The bed is king size and VERY comfortable. Loved the shower as well.

WIFI was not working but I alerted the owner and she said she'd have the caretaker look into it. There are a few places in GH where you can surf for free. Outside the café called "Da Perk" and from the parking lot of the bright pink government building close to the main grocery store, but as you are walking to Cupid's Key.

Would definitely recommend this cottage and will most likely be back again.
